It's skit time

Did You Know? - An individual sketch or vignette is a brief scene or skit formerly used in vaudeville and used today on variety shows, comedy programs, adult entertainment, talk shows, or certain children's television series (such as Sesame Street). Such a sketch can include footage of a "man on the street", pioneered by American television personality Steve Allen on evening comedy television programs like The Tonight Show.

"Mirror mirror on the wall...."

The other six dwarfs are really small

Bob's daughter found an outstanding shirt for Bob

Did You Know? - The phenomenon called tears of wine is manifested as a ring of clear liquid, near the top of a glass of wine, from which droplets continuously form and drop back into the wine. It is most readily observed in a wine which has a high alcohol content. It is also referred to as wine legs, curtains, or church windows.

The effect is a consequence of the fact that alcohol has a lower surface tension than water.

If alcohol is mixed with water inhomogeneously, a region with a lower concentration of alcohol will pull on the surrounding fluid more strongly than a region with a higher alcohol concentration.

The result is that the liquid tends to flow away from regions with higher alcohol concentration. This can be easily and strikingly demonstrated by spreading a thin film of water on a smooth surface and then allowing a drop of alcohol to fall on the center of the film.

The liquid will rush out of the region where the drop of alcohol fell.

The dancing has begun in earnest

We call this "The Presidential Waltz"....
They call it dancing!

Dinner be done.... Working on the wine now

Jon plays very dancable music.... Everyone up

In the back of the room, other folks are dancing.....
We love all wooden floor rooms

The back of the room has advantages....
Farther from speakers... Closer to the bar!

"Come on Del... It's a line dance!"

Once to the left... Once to the right
Stand up.. Sit down... Fight fight fight

Looks like they are getting their mojo on!
"Hey Del... What's a mojo?"

Jackie is a little of of sync....   Or... Everybody else is!

"S-h-h-h-h I am concentrating"

"I forgot... Do we clap once of twice?"

Ed demonstrates the proper amount of concentration

Did You Know? - Dancing in a circle is an ancient tradition common to many cultures for marking special occasions, strengthening community and encouraging togetherness. The circle is probably the oldest known dance formation.

It is found even today in the community dances of many cultures, including Arabic (Debke), Greek (Greek dances surviving from ancient Greece (chorea)), African, Eastern European, Israeli (see Jewish dance and Israeli folk dancing), South Slavic, Irish Celtic, Breton, Catalan (sardana), South American and North American Indian.

It is also used, in its more meditative form, in worship within various religious traditions, including, for example, the Church of England and other Anglican Churches.

Modern circle dance mixes traditional folk dances, mainly from European or Near-Eastern sources, with recently choreographed ones to a variety of music both ancient and modern and they draw on a rich and diverse dance tradition. There is also a growing repertoire of new dances to classical music and contemporary songs.

Everybody wiggle....

Betcha there will be some sore backs in the morning

"I heard something go CRACK!"

"Don't worry.... Marilyn just called the Triple AAA!"

"Careful Madam President!"

Kick up your heels

Jon is teaching a new line dance....

"By golly... I think I've got it!"

The floor was full of dancers

Leon and Marcia on the floor

It's a line dance but they still hold hands!

Romance is in the air


The whole room is shaking....

Those not on the floor are watching those on the floor

Ron and Kristin have figured it out

Our guests decided to dance outside to cool off a bit... Excellent idea!

Is it "Hands Up" or the letter "Y"?

Oh oh.... Looks like a new letter is about to be formed

"I give up!"

In England they use small Y's.... Not capital Y's

They appear to be signaling for assistance

Help has arrived... The proper method of making an "M"

Either it is another small "M" or Brian is getting tired

"I am the YMCA Judge"

Finally over.....

Skip... Hop... Hop... Skip... Hop....

Brian said he was in control.... Donna got a laugh out of that!

The kids put the "E" in energy

Careful with the heels

Sue and Bob enjoy the polka... From a distance

"Congrats Mr. President"

We have a surprise vocalist

Wow.... Sign the lady up for next dance!

Did You Know? - Karaoke (カラオケ?, bimoraic clipped compound of Japanese kara 空 "empty" and ōkesutora オーケストラ "orchestra") (/ˌkæriˈoʊki/ or /ˌkærəˈoʊki/; Japanese: [kaɽaoke] ( listen)) is a form of interactive entertainment or video game in which amateur singers sing along with recorded music (a music video) using a microphone and public address system.

The music is typically a well-known pop song minus the lead vocal. Lyrics are usually displayed on a video screen, along with a moving symbol, changing color, or music video images, to guide the singer.

In some countries, a karaoke box is called a KTV. It is also a term used by recording engineers translated as "empty track" meaning there is no vocal track.

Jon leads the way

The first victim begins.... Well, once the giggles stop

"What should I sing???"

... and the audience roars....

Dad lends a hand... or a vocal chord...

"Oh my... What is that sound???"

"We can dance to the karaoke...."

PLEASE... Do not quit your day job"

The crowd roars.... Others have run out side to avoid falling plaster

"Ladies... Hold me up!"

"Sue... This is just like a floor show.... Only without the talent!"

The first one to yell "Ah Ha" has to leave the floor

"Follow that cowboy"

Speed it up Jon!!
