Thank you MooseMom,

Maurane (Claudine Luypaerts) was born on 12 November 1960 in Ixelles, Brussels, to Guy-Philippe Luypaerts, a composer and director of Académie de Musique of Verviers, and Jeannie Patureaux, a piano teacher. She was a singer and actress and died on the 7th May 2018 (aged 57) in Schaerbeek, Belgium.

Salvatore (Knight) Adamo (originally born in Sicily 1. November1943), is a singer and composer, has dual citizenship of Italy and Belgium. In 2001, Adamo was raised into the Belgian nobility (with the motto Humblement mais dignement) by King Albert II and given for life the Belgian noble title Ridder, translated into English as "Knight". He was appointed an Officer of the Belgian Order of the Crown in 2002. In 2014, Adamo was honoured at Victoires de la Musique in France.

Thank you Marilee for this great edit !
What surprised me most of all is that you and I could easily be sisters, because at that time we looked very much alike!
Your lovely edit brings back memories of our wedding in Gretna Green in Scotland, which took also place around that time.
Gretna Green is the first village in Scotland and has been used since the middle of the 18th century by "runaways" to marry over the anvil at the blacksmith's and is still being used by "runaways" to marry officially at the Registry Office, where usually a passer-by and/or a secretary at the registry office or similar act as their witnesses for the official part of their marriage and after that the newlyweds continue with their second wedding-ceremony over the anvil at the blacksmith's near the Registry Office, where they receive from the blacksmith the Gretna-Green-over-the-anvil-marriage-certificate. In the old days (midst 18th century) weddings were conducted for "runaways" only by the blacksmith over the anvil and at that time that alone was completely legal and could not be questioned by angry parents.
Many thanks again for this lovely edit, it brings back many happy memories !  :grouphug;

P.S. I have tried to show an example of the beautiful music they play in Gretna Green on their bagpipes ... but it did not work, unfortunately I could not transfer one of the new bagpipe-videos ...

Oh, Kristina! Thank-you so MUCH for sharing the history of runaway weddings in Gretna Green. My folks' folks hail from Ireland and Wales - maybe that's why we look a bit similar? My actual sister is the blonde beside me in so many photos. She took after the Irish side (Mom with her red hair & green eyes) while I took after Dad (with the nearly-black hair). I have traveled to many countries for work, but never made it to the British Isles, and would sincerely love to visit some time.

Thanks so much for watching, listening and sharing :) .

Tribute to Ludwig II of Bavaria, "The Swan King" or the eccentric "Fairy Tale King" (1845 - 1886) who succeeded to the throne at the age of 18 years and thought out, sketched, constructed and built the most wonderful castles i.e. Neuschwanstein Castle and he also sponsored the music etc. of Richard Wagner and died under mysterious circumstances in 1886.

... Thinking about "you know what"  etc. : Border reivers were raiders along the Anglo-Scottish border from the late 13th century to the beginning of the 17th century.

Their heyday was in the last hundred years of their existence (?), during the time of the House of Stuart in the Kingdom of Scotland and the House of Tudor in the Kingdom of England.

Their ranks consisted of both Scottish and English people, and they raided the entire Border country....

Thanks Iolaire and Kristina, for checking out my little video :D !

Yes, this is all a one-gal operation. I have this instrument, called a Qchord: I played and sang into the computer to create audio file. Then I found the imagery online and glued it all together with some video editing software. I still have so much to learn about audio balancing, volume levels, video transitions, color correcting and so much more - it's a nifty hobby that I can do right here in the front room while hubby is sleeping :) .

The song is not one I would have chosen - another musician online suggested I learn it - so this forced me outside my 'comfort zone' and gave me more opportunities to try new things.

Music: I love what music can be.

I've loved "Bollywood" (films made in India) films for many years.  I love the epic stories with the dancing, the singing and the beautiful costumes.  We have to travel about half an hour to find a cinema that regularly shows the newest films released in the US.

So, imagine my surprise when a local cinema in my little city waaaaay in the western 'burbs of Chicago started devoting one screen (out of 18) to Indian films!  I couldn't believe it!  We have spent most of the past weekend watching the two films on offer.  Both were, as is the custom, about 3 hours long.  It was such fun.

The film we saw yesterday is in Telugu, the dominant language spoken in the south east of India.  As is also the custom, there was an epic fight scene at the end, where the good guy singlehandedly defeats a small army of baddies, accompanied by a song that has just one vocalist, and it was awesome!

So, for something just a little bit different, here is that song:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3QNW3guTYU8&fbclid=IwAR3z3NY-y8L8Uzc9IeDL5wnBfvI4sMkXECxp6xdIBzjNmZTGZrxZpCNDyew

P.S.  I have no idea what the lyrics are in English.  "Take THAT, you dastardly fiend.", or "I can fight and smoke a cigarette at the same time because I'm so cool."
