RV1. My First Personal Video To You

I have been plucking up courage all evening to make, edit and upload this video. It starts off very nervously but I got into it eventually. So enjoy. Be kind !

I will be making more videos around my home, around the village and beyond, over the next few weeks in preparation for my holiday in Jerusalem where I hope to be able to blog from.

Well, what do you think, of this, my first video ??

      • Well, my brother, please know that you are a blessing to me, and to many other bloggers around the world.
        Really! Always know that. God has given you a gift of congeniality, and He knew what He was doing when He blessed you with that gift that is so very important in today’s world. Please have a blessed night (we’re GMT+4 at this time of year.)

      • God does move in mysterious ways as I would have probably have never published this post. I bought the camera from Amazon.es (Spain) and the instructions were in every language except English. I searched the camera on YouTube and an Englishman, Graham Houghton, has done a complete 6+ hour video series on how to use this camera. So I was able to follow his directions and this video was born. Thank you Graham !! Have a lovely evening yourself EtS πŸ˜€

      He speaks ??? Well only just. I was so nervous, had nothing planned, had no practice, just dived in feet first and hoped for the best.
      Yes. A new printer would be nice as the monks have gone on strike over feeding conditions. A printer where I don’t have to pay the high prices for ink would be great. I’ll have to shake the moths out of my wallet and get a new one.

  4. Great to hear your voice — you have a beautiful speaking voice, by the way. Loved meeting Sonic. Maybe Samantha next time, eh? My cats are twins, as well. About the same age as yours. One is a Tabby and the other looks like a Siamese/Tabby mix (stripes on the legs and tail).

    • Hello Georgia πŸ˜€ Thank you so much for watching the video. I don’t seem to talk much nowadays while living on my own. The cats are great company and they are always talking to me. Samantha is not a lap cat. Sonic is and has great pleasure in giving all my clothes the distressed look while kneading with his claws. Tabby, not tiger !! That’s what I meant to say about Samantha. Thanks for reminding me.
      Your cats sound great. A Siamese/Tabby mix is unusual, so must be quite a character !! Hugs to you my friend. ❀ Ralph xox πŸ˜€

  9. O Dio! I’ve read the book, bought the colouring book, and now I’ve seen the movie. My cup runneth over. Oh, wait, that’s my wine glass and I’m trying to limit myself to one a day.

    Bravo, Ralphie, you did very, very well, sans script, make-up artists, director, big budget, etc. It was so nice to see and hear you, and very brave of you to plunge into this shark infested territory. What a nice bloke you are.

    If the 200 scribes are leaving you, could I please have them? I’m thinking of upgrading my printer. The illuminated lettering is lovely, but it doesn’t half eat up the ink. And, the chanting is becoming a tad monotonous.

    I look forward to some more of Ralph Productions on my computer screen.

      • I was wondering whether you’d be familiar with the word. I know it from German, where it simply means “human being”; in Yiddisch and American however, it denotes a good-hearted person, someone with integrity. See you πŸ˜‰ HUGS!

  45. I really enjoyed your first video. Great meeting you “in person.” It’s super duper, just like you describe your new camera. I haven’t had the courage to video myself, just animals (as you saw with my fox mother and six babies.) Great to see your black cat. Have a great trip to Jerusalem.
