Original YT playout date: 31 January 2010
Duration: 44:30

It’s that time of year, so we get around the tree and get opening the presents. But of course we remember the greatest gift of all. That usurper Santa Claus has no place in our household, we know that we are giving each other presents to celebrate that God Himself came into the world in human flesh to save us.

Original YT playout date: 13 September 2009
Duration: 16:16

“The wife and kiddies like nothing better than being driven to the playgrounds in Warsaw’s only pre-war style rickshaw.

Features “”Bozhe khrani svoyikh””, by Zhanna Bichevskaya.

Words by G. Ponomarev.

Here are the chords (per amdm.ru)

Fm Fm+7 Fm7 Fm6
Если терпения нет и сил
Eb Ab F7
Если лукавый лик
Bm Fm
Вспомни, как старец Григорий молил
C F7
Боже, храни Своих
Bm Fm
Вспомни, как старец Григорий молил
C Fm C
Боже, храни Своих

Бога, Христа и пречистую Мать
Взыскивай каждый миг
Если начнут на крестах распинать
Боже, храни Своих

Дар искупительный жертвы Царя
Верой твоей постиг
За катастрофу и от Октября
Боже, храни Своих

В страшном смертельном пленении знай
И повторяй как стих
Верных Христу ожидает рай
Боже, храни Своих

Обворовало народ мой зло
Отняли имя у них
И национальность и дали число
Боже, храни Своих

Нынче у Русских коварный враг
Грабит и жрет за троих
Враг как всегда обратится в прах
Боже, храни Своих

(далее в Gm)

Gm Gm+7 Gm7 Gm6
Русская сила взойдет в зенит
F B G7
С нами архистратиг
Cm Gm
Русь умерщвленную крест воскресит
D G7
Боже, храни Своих
Cm Gm
Русь умерщвленную крест воскресит
D Gm D
Боже, храни Своих

Станет душа как родник чиста
Тайн приобщившись святых
За сохраненную веру Христа
Боже, храни Своих

Тула, Владимир, Курск и Рязань
Сонм городов дорогих
Просятся руки на правую брань
Боже, храни Своих

Если терпения нет и сил
Если лукавый лих
Вспомни, как старец Григорий молил
Боже, храни Своих”

The Rickshaw Rant


Original YT playout date: 22 June 2008
Duration: 58:14

This video   h a s   i t   a l l !

Well, so it should, bearing in mind it lasts nearly an hour! Still, I would be very pleased if my dear listeners would sit back and just enjoy the show. Get a coffee!

Here’s some of what awaits you:

* Relaxing scenes from Warsaw’s Szczesliwicki park

* One of the rantiest impromptu rants I ever did.

* A unique ride through the park and Ochota in Warsaw’s (I believe) only family rickshaw. (There are a handful of commercial rickshaws in Lazienkowski Park for tourists, but I never saw them elsewhere, and only for hire, whereas mine isn’t)

* Creative use of the new annotations function, including lyrics to some of the background music and supplementary info. These annotations can and will be added to during the active life of the video.

* And to cap it all a couple of interesting pieces of incidental music in the background which I made a few years ago, and have been meaning to incorporate for some time.

Enjoy!

BTW For people in Poland wanting to get a rickshaw like mine, the place to go is

http://www.riksza.pl

If there is any interest in founding a rickshaw society for Poland or an international one, anywhere on the interenet, let me know. It seems the natural answer to the fuel crisis, but we need to lobby cities for wider paved areas, and for the space between bollards which prevent car access still to be broadly spaced enough to allow rickshaw access. Also they don’t go up kerbs very well, so kerbs need to be smoothed off at road crossings.
