Indeed!!

These poeple are extremely skilled but also crazy!! In many of these sports each minute may be their last...

One of the last scenes (2:21 in the 2nd video) prooves that - it takes a lot of luck (and additionally some skill) not to be overwhelmed and killed by this type of avalance...

Off every topic!! Got this from Sam and try to copy and post it for all of you.
Music in Maastricht, on the large square called: Het Vrijthof, on a summerday's evening!
- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -
A wee bit of cultureā€¦.Take the time to
watch it through - beautiful.


First read the following and
then click on the web site.

The conductor of
the orchestra is Andre Rieu from Holland . The young

Lady, her trumpet and her rendition of TAPS makes your hair stand on



End.

Many of you may never have heard taps
played in its entirety, for all
Of the men & women that
have died for you to have the freedom you enjoy.
This is
an opportunity you won't want to miss and I guarantee you'll never
forget.

Amazingly beautiful .. Melissa Venema, age 13,
is the trumpet soloist.
She is also from Holland.


Here is Taps played in its entirety. The original version
of Taps was
Called Last Post, and was written by Daniel
Butterfield in 1801. It
Was rather lengthy and formal, as
you will hear in this clip, so in
1862 it was shortened
to 24 notes and re-named Taps. Melissa Venema is
Playing
it on a trumpet whereby the original was played on a bugle.


Watch at this site.

Thanks, Deb!
I think it just is music to hear in the evening...
Sam has sent it to me and I'm sure he will be pleased that we enjoy it!
Maastricht lies in the Netherlands, only 6 km away from the place in Belgium where I take care of Genna sometimes. I know that Sam visited concerts of Andre Rieu and also enjoyes them.
