"Pongáio" was the name my Aunt Mona gave to a long, green, cool room where we gathered at her home —
replete with comfy chairs, a rocker, sewing machine, sewing goods, beautiful beads, shelves, books, bibelots, photographs, odds'n'ends, mementos of a life, treasures —
a gathering of all the useful & 'useless' things that so make life a pleasure.

... and the "Fallout"; and Of Weevils

Fallout is the term for the residue of an atomic bomb. Not quite that here, but almost: the arrival of the closets/cupboards has had a similar explosive effect, as everything has to be moved around before trying to be adjusted into the new, and smaller, spaces (smaller than the "shoved into a corner" of before — aaaargh!).

Today, I've taken stuff out, again, of my deposit/nano-studio, the same stuff  I'd organized — can it be just a few weeks back?; vaccumed the area; put in the steel shelf unit from Son²'s room, which was freed by putting his stuff into his new closet, on the floor, in the hallway, into he other room, till finding their way back into his room; then bringing my stuff back...
This sentence was going on and on and on, and on, as is this task!

So, to take a breather both gramatically and from the work, I'm putting in some videos from Master and Commader: The Far Side of the World.

I love the movie and finally bought it at the beginning of the year. I particularly love the soundtrack. I play it over and over... or e-e-endlessly, as The Family sometime can be heard muttering almost, but not quite, below my hearing. I've put it on my mp3 player, both whole and as an "album" with only the classical/traditional tracks.

So here goes a lovely bit of "hearing".
Ah, and the looking is not too bad either! ; )))

The following 2 videos have no scenes from the movie, except for a few photos, but only music from the soundtrack.

"La musica notturna delle strade di Madrid,  Nº6, Op 3" by Luigi Boccherini, 
which got me hooked on the soundtrack (with some photos)

This is one of my favorite... no, all are favorites: I love them all!
This then, an "at this moment of resting" favorite piece, the
Concerto Grosso in G minor ("Christmas Concerto"), Op. 6-8 Adagio,
by Arcangelo Corelli

Ah, yes! The weevils...

A bit of Boccherini's lovely  "La musica notturna delle strade di Madrid"
as played by Dr Stephen Maturin and Captain Jack Aubrey
— Paul Bettany and Russell Crowe
Beware: SPOILER!

Although this video doesn't have the original soundtrack,
it is a good "trailer", by XXXCallistaXXX

I can't put all the videos here, and I do have to get back to the organizing.
If you, my mythical reader, haven't yet seen the movie, please do!
Action, suspense, beautiful hunks playing with swords, tall ships, the sea, good dialog, and beautiful music!
