Michele, I think Christine and I agree that music, especially some Scottish music, is an incentive to get up and move! Let's all give it a go this week!

That's hubby getting ready to go out now, so I'll need to go.

Sorry again about being so late.
We can chat again soon.

Improvisation: The Benefits of Exercising Alone

Sounds like a great title for an article emoticon

The last CD younger son made up for me is a total misch-masch of music for the car. There's everything from Handel's Water Music through to Swedish Death Metal!
I very occasionally put it on in the car, on my own in my wee auld-wifey's car, open the windows and turn up the volume! Folk turn to see the stupid youth. Their faces when they see me instead - what a laugh emoticon

Sounds like a great idea!! "They" say that the secret to consistent exercising is finding one you like. I don't really like any but moving to music. I have a tech-savvy son, too, so I think I will use your idea. I am sure Dan will be happy to help me! Let me know if you get one done. I plan to! I should check ready-made CDs/DVDs because if they have line-dance ones, perhaps they have country dancing ones. Come to think of it, though, we don't necessarily need choreographing. Maybe we can just improvise as we go!

I was going to have a look at some member's pages while I'm doing this.
Maybe send a wee personal mail, whatever.
But I stopped at the first one because I noticed one of the other teams he's in which is on a subject close to my older son's heart, so I went to have a look - but it's dormant. I'll mail Jordan though, and see if he's involved in that sphere in real life, at all.
It's not a huge field - Medieval Martial Arts! My son runs a business to do with this - very much a niche market.

Swaying is good too!
I really need to put together a CD of music that makes me move. I wonder if I could do a list in the next few days, then get younger son to burn it to CD for me when he's here for a few days this week. Hmmmm! Otherwise I'll need to get hubby to do it.

Marching songs, martial music, some dance music, a couple of Proclaimer tracks. . . . .

The Lebkuchen hearts sound delicious! Yes, mine are homemade, following an old family recipe that uses sour cream and "real" butter. Yummy!

"Bonnie Dundee" is playing now! Music to sway to! emoticon

Are your Sugar Hearts home made?

I had the bible discussion group here yesterday morning, so I opened a packet of Lebkuchen hearts that I'd got myself for Christmas - gingerbread hearts covered in dark chocolate, and these ones have a dollop of apricot compote in the middle.

It IS a lovely song!

I really enjoy all their music, and as I said, "Maggie Lauder" is a song that makes a person want to get up and move! I think I will start a thread on our team page to ask if anyone does Scottish country dancing for fun and/or exercise. I'd love to try it, and there is a place near me that has similar dancing. Some of the American square dancing is similar, probably because it developed from what Scottish immigrants brought with them.

Just listened to your Corrie's link, Janet.

Yes, it's a song for a beaten country, maybe a rallying call to try again. But certainly not for a country that is it's own nation.
Lovely song though, and very emotive to a huge number of Scots.

I hope you are feeling better! It looks like just you and me today. I am listening to The Corries, as I said, and now "Maggie Lauder" is playing. I am going to try to try to find/do an exercise routine to it because it is so lively! Although I will have to try to make two notes equal one move to start with' because I'd never keep up otherwise! It IS a song that makes you want to get up and get moving!

Hello, I hope you're still checking in.
Sorry, but I blinked and lost an hour - awful headache isn't helping, either.

I'll be around for the next while, but I need to go and get a cuppa shortly. I'm working my way down a big glass of water first.

"Flower of Scotland" has been used as a national anthem at the likes of the Commonwealth Games where each of the home countries needs a different anthem.
I don't know if it was then adopted officially.
I do know there was quite a group who were against it being adopted, because of some of the lyrics.
Even just "when will we see your likes again" gives the impression of being beaten.

Oh well - maybe I'll find out next year when the Commonwealth Games are on again, and back in Glasgow.

Anybody else here yet? I am ready to chat but have coffee instead of tea. No Scottish oat cakes THIS time, but I do have some frosted, heart-shaped sugar cookies like the ones that won my husband's heart back in the 1960's. I'll have to eat ONE. VERY slowly! I also have some Corries music ready for background.

I am starting my music with "Flower of Scotland." Did it ever get adopted, officially or unofficially, as the National Anthem?
