Most of our history with this musical instrument is good except for one really bad one found the dusty piano about 1952 and someone said near Perry. I am while he was doing some wiring for them was looking for a piano so my sister and I can take lessons they want for $45. He called it to our farmhouse and his electricians Van and dad lugged it into a corner of the front room which had a linoleum floor/plum colored chair, blonde, black and white television but the TV lamp on it and in the winter Tom Brown heating stove when she was a girl mom envied the kids who took piano lessons she'd attend their recitals in Dexter and a couple of those girls eventually became her sisters-in-law.
Dad enjoyed hearing his sister's practice for lessons one of those sisters played for their wedding. Even grandma Leo. Mom's mother took lessons as a girl riding a horse over dusty country roads into town for Saturday lessons so lessons where our fate since Gloria and I took lessons from Elinor Kappler in Dexter at first, getting out of school once a week to walk to her house for lessons. Mrs. chapter had a baby grand piano. I don't like and a parakeet that much of the time, had the run of the house and pluck the feathers out of its tummy. Mom make sure dad got to hear has practice pieces from our red John Thompson box and even though recitals always accompanied planning season. My dad never was nine years old her recital piece was Chinese lullaby Mrs. chapter dressed up and wore red lipstick recitals with a hat on her plane bobbed hair announce the glorious piece at six Gloria turned the pages that she never glanced at the music she knew it all by heart. Gloria and I began to practice hymns for Sunday school, all while on the old upright.
We play duets. Everything from deep purple to a patriotic one. The pumpkins decorating the top of the piano 4-H achievement night. One by one the old ivories gave up their glue mom found someone who would install plastic ivories and even black and the sharks and flats. When we got older we began to complain about having to practice. Mom started saving today's dishes to bargain with practice.
Do the dishes we practiced mom happily did dishes while being serenaded by live music often parking on the end of the piano bench dishtowel in hand, singing along.
That was until my boogie-woogie stage kind of music. Mom had envisioned about junior high age I began to pound out WC Handy pieces jungle blues basin Street blues baby daddies eight to the bar over and over an hour of Handy is a workout physically and emotionally and for mom spiritually.
She later admitted that my heavy-handed blues and boogie days drove her into the garden, but Mrs. chapter put up with it gracefully.
Of course she only had to stand for half an hour a week. She let me choose my recital pieces from Frankie and Johnny, my freshman year in certain bread the next before I finally graduated to Chopin years later after marriage after my husband's years in the Air Force in Vietnam.
We bought our first house. My folks gave us the wonderful piano, but what a chore to get it from the Iowa farmhouse to a Denver suburb comes the bad episode five years and one son later we moved back to Iowa. They have the old gal had lost just to back wheels and the move so it tilted back my husband leaned his shoulder and head against the wall deposit piano from it so I could slip shams under to replace the wheels. He ruptured a disk in his neck, leading to surgery to fuse a couple of vertebrae that he recovered and decided that he still like to piano well enough to take it apart. Strip off the dark, grainy texture and refinish it. It wasn't long before son Dan was taking lessons and practicing on that same ponderous piano.
She has an uncertain future. Last time the PLO was to learn that she has a sounding board which cannot be mended so the instrument holds assignment corner in our main room usually crowned with family pictures those boogie-woogie days.

American history Dr. Benjamin Rush is America's forgotten film and phone the signature of the Declaration of Independence comes mutely before that other famous horse and Franklin of Russia's underlying thing is the story.
Both were about to hear the prolific founding fathers biographer Paolo Charles hello is a New York Times best-selling author of 20 books, including Dr. Benjamin Rush, founding father, you mentioned is also former distinguished visiting fellow in American history.
George Washington, let's take a listen. Dr. Benjamin Rush was one of the most port of our founding fathers. In many ways the most important George Washington was unquestionably the father of our political and military structure. Alexander Hamilton fathered our atomic structure is Dr. Benjamin Rush who fathered our social structure. He was the only doctor with a medical school degree who signed the Declaration of Independence was at signature and began a lifelong struggle.
Abolition of slavery for women's rights forbade on child labor. He fought for establishment of universal free public education was first to advocate temperate use of alcohol and opposed tobacco use.
He demanded that other doctors treat the poor as well as the rich African-Americans as well as whites, doctors would treat African-Americans.
He found it true great schools of higher education in Pennsylvania. Dickinson University in Carlisle and Franklin College, now known as) Marshall College saved his alma mater, Princeton College from oblivion. After British troops burned down just after the young doctor rush one appointment to Philadelphia Hospital was called the discovered basement filled with starving human banks chained to walls lying in their own selves, moaning and groaning somewhat infected storage.
Rush stormed into the hospital, doctors office and demanded their release. I'm transferring to clean hospital rooms great to take personal custody of and to care for an unforced the hospital board eventually to the window. The hospital to house little by little he saw most of them improved dramatically as he talked to them listen to what they had to say learn their interests and introduced a range of recreational activities arch crops and what we now call physical therapy and occupational therapy in listening to them. He developed treatment.
He called talk therapy works but we now call psychotherapy have led to the release of the majority of them into civilian life. It was it was a miracle, a revolution in the treatment of the mentally ill, which has not changed since the beginnings of civilization, and this was 50 years before Sigmund Freud was even born. Dr. Benjamin Rush.Sigmund Freud discovered psychotherapy and other therapies for metal you a century before Freud started writing about psychoanalysis the American psychiatric Association recognized Russians great achievements by putting his image on their official seal and designating him father of American psychiatry. Russia's deep concern for the human condition included an equally deep love of individual liberty, which is why he served in the second talk about Congress and signed the Declaration of Independence, but he was not interested in a career in politics. He loved being a doctor treating and curing the ill and he wanted to heal the injured and cure the sick. So after signing the Declaration of Independence. He galloped out of Philadelphia and John George Washington on the banks of the Delaware office in Trenton, New Jersey on Christmas night. 1776 washing Army staged one of the most daring attacks in the Revolutionary war road across the Delaware River through a driving snowstorm and overwhelmed the garrison of a thousand Hessian soldiers at dawn as Hessian defendants fired back some of their bullets inevitably hit their marks one unarmed rush into battle not to fire a shot to stem the bleeding. Kneeling over the fallen Dr. Benjamin Rush tried something no doctor had ever done before. Prevent deaths on the battlefield until then armies routinely left their wounded 2.everywhere in the world.
Soldier could not run, walk, limp call off the battlefield, he was left to God. There were no doctors around to help.
And there really was no choice. There was no such thing as an antiseptic vast majority of the badly injured in peace as well as war died from blood poisoning, septicemia. There was nothing anyone could do troops couldn't help doctors or priests could do nothing except credit and that seldom said and he lives. At least here on earth for Dr. Benjamin Rush.
However, it seemed obscene to let men die fighting and bleeding for his country of the fighting ended Trenton demand Washington set up field hospitals of the sort. Washington commandeered nearby houses and Rush use them as field hospitals to form what would later become the Army medical Corps for such core in the world.
Rush didn't save many of the wounded course, there was no way could medicine medical care were still too primitive, anesthesia, antiseptics, antibiotics, none of those exist when he went to work trying to save a soldier's wife when he had add potato soldiers lamb.
He fed the patient whiskey overwhelm told him to fight on a piece of wood as hard as it could while Rush went to work. With his scalpel within a minute or two. Most soldiers passed out and infections would later kill at least two thirds of within a few days, but in listening rivers remember that seizure didn't exist. The hollowpoint needle they want to vent until 1850 stethoscope blood transfusion. Even simple aspirin. All of these things were 50 to 100 years in the future when Rush walked on battlefield in Trenton, hospitals like battlefield hospitals, workplaces with the badly injured or sick went to die and go to hospital to have them save your life if you were sick you stayed at home. Use worthless home remedies.
Dr. Benjamin Rush only started the scientific revolution in medicine did not live long enough to see any substantial progress in healthcare, but it could and did begin the job and because of his status in Philadelphia subsided he did live see some of the results of his pioneering efforts Philadelphia at the time was America's political, cultural and economic center and signers of the Declaration of Independence were America's richest, most powerful man will Rush was not born to Wells farmers. Sean he was superbly well educated Princeton University of Edinburgh medical school, which was the best medical school in the world. John finished his studies in London were Benjamin Franklin introduced him to England's most distinguished thinkers and scientists about treated Philadelphia's rich and famous. He spent most of his time treating the poor. Even African-Americans first Caucasian doctor in America to do so and you're listening to hollow Giles Unger tell the story of Dr. Benjamin Rush, and I thought I knew quite a bit about Rush but that medical unit in his invention of the idea of a medical Corps. I had no idea this was his way of volunteering in our fight against the British revolutionary on so many fronts in the abolition movement woman suffrage, and more.
This remarkable story, one that are not teaching her certain schools across this country.
The story of Dr. Benjamin Rush continues here on our American stores doing household chores can Artie be time-consuming and tedious.

We recorded it at iHeartRadio's tentpole event windows handout. Did you know that near attack ODT were magic pant 75 mg can help migraine sufferers still such an exciting event windows handout I had one night and I took minor attack ODT and I was present and had an amazing time. Here's a little glimpse of our conversation with some of our closest friends.
This episode was brought to you by near attack ODT were meant to pant 75 mg life with migraine attacks can mean missing out on big moments with friends and family, but thankfully near attack ODT were magic pant 75 mg is the only medication that is proven to treat a migraine attack and prevent episodic migraines and adults sell lively events like windows handout don't have to be next, and we continue with our American stories author Harlow Giles Unger and his written a terrific book about the life of Benjamin Rush. Call Dr. Benjamin Rush, founding father you wounded nation.
Let's pick up when we last left off doctors, North, South, East and West refused even to consider treating African-Americans of the time, nor did many of them consider treating the poor. The poor cities at least were dirty that smelled. He couldn't read or write songs they lived in had no water, no sores. Conditions were horrible in the slums of America's cities. No one who called himself Dr. even clocks willingly set foot in the slums wanted anything to do with those who lived there except Dr. Benjamin Rush listen to Rush and she describes his daily rounds life constant labor.
I let out a life in which my shop was crowded with the poor in the morning and at mealtimes and I visited nearly every street in the city every day, often have I ascended the upper story of thoughts by a ladder.
I had to sit on that there were no chairs.
I risk not only taking their disease, but being infected by vermin. I seldom went to bed before 12 o'clock again. Those are the words of Dr. Benjamin Rush when he was not treating the patient. So he called the Pennsylvania State assembly demanding social reforms and directly or indirectly at improving the health of the city's population. Every social advance that he demanded was Todd helps, it was the first to call for public sanitation.
He wanted to sweep away the garbage, the sewerage and stagnant water, all of which he believed promoted disease, but science being what it was he had no way of proving it and had to struggle with Recalcitrant city and state officials to get them to hire street cleaners and the way he convinced them was dark by telling them how dirty the city was show them how they and the city in the state profit economically by cleaning the streets. He championed abolition of slavery as president of the abolition Society. He naturally decried the cruelties of slavery, but the only way he could convince Pennsylvania legislators to abolish slavery was to show them how the state would benefit economically by freeing African-Americans to make greater contributions to society. In 1780. He succeeded in the Pennsylvania assembly passed the first state law in America banning slavery but Rush didn't stop there.
He was distressed by the condition of free blocks in Philadelphia. He walked directly into their midst to treat them and their children medically. He was the first white Dr. America to do so after winning their trust. Urge them to build their own African-American church.
The first church in America not only raise funds to build a church. You joined its parishioners at its dedication people realized founding fathers did not invent slavery when they were born, the slaves were already on the land, almost a century. Actually, Virginia tobacco growers plantation owners at the turn of the 18th century early 1700s petitioned Queen and to stop sending slaves. There the slave population in the so-called sugar islands at the time in the Caribbean had grown so large that that they just couldn't absorb any more slaves, but slavery slave trade had become a huge proportion of the British government's income, so they just arbitrarily started dumping slaves off the ships in Virginia for the plantation owners and they didn't want to make petitioned Queen and not send any more slaves, number one, they were illiterate number two, they couldn't speak English and number three tobacco planting picking and harvesting and curing is a skill tray. It takes a lot of knowledge to do that carefully and do it properly. Queen and would listen. She needed those revenues so she just kept sending slave ships over here that generation.connotation owner died, another generation grew up and died and now we get to the generation of our founding fathers. Jefferson, Washington, and the others and their borrowing liens in which, by law, by British laws and subsequently early American laws. Slaves were not human beings. They were property and they were much a part of each property as they were as trees and did not have the right, you could go to jail if you treat your slaves. So it wasn't until they were in their adult years that men like Washington. Quite a few others saw cruelty of slavery and immorality of all the evils of slavery and try to figure out a way around the law. While they didn't have control of the majorities in the state assemblies, but I couldn't do anything under British law. After the revolution that a form of government first fall during the Confederation. Each state was independent from the others. That lasted until 1789. Now you have the federal government that other things to do and how to set up an executive branch set up judiciary that took years. Meanwhile, people like Washington were looking into the law and they found a way around the law. The only way around it was in your last will and testament that superseded the law.
The written law of every state.
And that's why Washington and spouse Martha for free emancipated slaves under Washington's will and Richard Henry Lee many many southern leaders did the same thing and that's all they could do under the law. Time there was an army of quacks calling themselves doctors rode into every town and village across America selling pot medicines, all of them were nothing more than fruit flavored whiskey or rum cured patients by rendering rendering them senselessly dropped and oblivious to their illnesses or injuries you charge them with killing their patients rather than curing it called for a law restricting the use of the title Dr. to graduates of recognized medical schools or to those who are served apprenticeships, which is common in those days apprenticeships with other doctors in your listing to Hollow Giles Unger was the author of Dr. Benjamin Rush, the founding father you nation is also a former distinguished visiting fellow in American history. George Washington's Mount Vernon if you're ever in Washington DC. Give yourself an extra day and 1/2 go to Mount Vernon and go to monthly eight and two course Jefferson so Monticello and Charlotte felt about an hour and 1/2 to self and you'll see the residences of these great founders. The beautiful field trip for a family going through the beautiful mountain country of Virginia and throughout the County itself which is one of the most beautiful counties in the country story of Dr. Benjamin Rush in my goodness what a beauty continues here on our American store doing household chores can Artie be time-consuming and tedious.

It was the first English language work written on psychiatry became the basic textbook for studies in psychiatry and for the next century until the beginning of the 20th century that work was so remarkable that as I said before, the American psychiatric Association put his image on its official seal and placed a bronze plaque on his grave declaring him father of American psychiatry. To this day I don't know why the world celebrates Freud instead of Dr. Benjamin Rush.
I did mention that he was a great teacher, professor of medicine at the University of Pennsylvania medical school and a professor of chemistry.
He wrote the first American chemistry book trained more than 3000 doctors will doctors with MD degrees and there's still more. I told you he was father of American psychiatry, but I didn't tell you that he was also father of you'll never guess this father of American veterinary medicine 1807 he delivered a lecture then published a pamphlet on the medical care of domestic animals. It was the first such work ever published in America. The idea came from years earlier after it finishes medical studies in England. He went to Paris and it was in Paris that he visited what was then world's first school of veterinary medicine that had been found to combat a cattle plague, but it's efforts eventually improve the quality of animal life, so much the farmer revenues began shooting up in 1795 Rush went to Washington, who was a great farmer tried find one the farmer but he was a brilliant scientist and former group of others to form a society to promote the development of veterinary medicine in America was Rush writing a pamphlet citing the benefits of veterinary medicine to farmers and of the nation at this time. 95% of Americans lived or worked on farms.
Why doesn't America celebrate this great founding father America don't really celebrate any founding fathers anymore memories of both Washington and Lincoln have been subsumed by shopping on what's now called Presidents' Day noise but to answer my own question about Rush sainthood apart from the fact that few Americans study or learn any American history anymore. The fact is that Dr. Benjamin Rush, America's greatest physician at the time of the revolution. The father of modern American medical practice new next to nothing about treating the sick knowing that no one did. Anyone in the world.
Nobody knew how to treat sick for centuries from the time of ancient Greece, doctors, and almost everyone else on earth believed that all human illnesses resulted from poisons traveled in the air and collected in body fluids in the blood and in the gastrointestinal tract and the remedy seems simple.
Drain the body of its poisons by draining as much as possible of its fluids and you get rid of the illness, emptying the duck was simple with laxatives. Rush concocted a laxative that became known as thunderbolts. You can use your imagination as to why after emptying the gut. I left the vascular system could people's blood without telling MD that's exactly what happened in George Washington at his insistence, he made the doctors keep leaving him to cure throat infection to cure his infection and then he finally got the just like him to death Russian. Most doctors were sensible enough to limit bleeding to between one and 2 pints a day, about 10 to 20% of patients reservoir but that's usually not enough to send the patient in shock but it is enough to make the patient feel lightheaded and less aware of the pain and discomfort and they felt that way especially so when a founding father, Dr. Benjamin Rush inspired all his patients when he promised them they'd feel better tomorrow but bleeding had no effect at all on them underlying interest in 24 hours. The body itself replace the blood lost in many patients went on to dive the real disease in August and September 1793 worst yellow fever epidemic in American history crush Philadelphia claimed more than 5000 people's lives more than 10% of the population of the city only rush and for other great physician remaining. Most people slip only Russian for other physicians remains treat the strict purge and bleed treatments that accomplish nothing of the Russian other doctors believed they saved many lives. Those who survive urgently treatments it would have survived the disease without bleeding or purging or the yellow fever to begin with and they simply got better. So many people died.
However, that critics feel them other doctors from other cities assailed rush one critic of this British journalist to hated all things American and had no knowledge of science or medicine.
He called rush of butcher until in the newspaper. He published for the first time in his life. The radiant ring light seem to harbor love Russian sainted head Jim for the first time in his life. He seemed mortal so stung by the attacks by this journal that she went into court and sue Joe's for libel.
Although he won the case.
His appearance in a court of public airing of such vile episodes. Butcher reach others even binding on journalist tarnish the Rush name and left him somewhat broke celebrated throughout his life as one whom God placed on earth to heal the sick Rush now left courtroom $5000 richer deeply wounded. He gave his order charity, and in 1800 closed his medical practice retreated to his country home to update earlier additions of his various books published works never practice medicine again.
He died in 1813, and lies in Philadelphia's Christ Church burial ground near his dear friend Benjamin Franklin. Without that flame of St. that illuminates Frank rush deserves more. Thomas Jefferson said the new no one among the founding fathers more benevolent. These are Jefferson's words, no one more benevolent, more learned finer genius, or more on this in Dr. Benjamin Rush, John Adams agreed. He said that as a man of science, letters, taste sense of patriotism, morality taken altogether, Rush has not left his equal. In America, or the world. I agree hope my book is great American patriot Dr. Benjamin Rush, the recognition he so deserves an great job as always by Greg Engler giving us the story and producing it. Special thanks to Holland, Giles Unger began his book is Dr. Benjamin Rush, founding father, who healed wounded nation, and what a story the father of modern-day psychiatry.
The only MD signed the declaration he started. Essentially, the Army medical Corps and also in the end brought veterinary medicine America and the improvement in the end of our agricultural economy.
