Merry Christmas

I am sending my Merry Christmas message in a video this year.  It was an effort to get the video done, uploaded and included in this post.  No time to master any of the fine points.  I guarantee that his is the worst video I will ever post but you have to start sometime.  As a mentor of mine says. “Anything worth doing is worth doing badly while you develop your skills.  Unfortunately there is nothing I can do about my face.  It is what it is.

If you can bring yourself to encourage me in this video thing, please leave a comment.

    Can I tell it is a first video effort? Well…yes, but not because of anything glaringly bad. You haven’t gotten exp in dealing with volume…both YouTube volume and ‘puter volume were at 100% and it was still very soft. Had to turn everything around me making noise off. Had I been listening at the local coffee shop that has we-fi I couldn’t have heard it.

    That, and it’s “basicness” (if that wasn’t a word, it is now) are the only clues to it being a beginning effort.

    Merry Christmas, Ralph.

    PS…the Santa hat was a nice touch…LOL

      Thanks for the feedback. I had visions of doing some editing but wasn’t able to get much out of the program I was using. Finally decided to just push on. I suspected the volume was low but I didn’t know what to do about it. Merry Christmas.

    Ralph, I’ve never made a video so can’t offer much of value there but the message was great! You shared from your heart what was on your mind and to me, that’s always a good thing. Merry Christmas.

    Thanks so much for your comment. If the communication was real that is all I intended it to be.
