No Cando

Sorry friends but those pictures… are a no go right now. It seems that the allergy medication leaves me very reactive to flash, after about 80 attempts with closed eye results I have to tell you that I have made a valiant effort. Also, the dog is simply adorable right now but I have yet to find a time when my husband is willing to photograph while I coax the dog. I can coax the dog well enough on my own but unless you like pictures of the puppies left or right nostril, a blurred close up of his taste buds or a nice shot of his stumpy tail and other nether parts… we’re going to have to leave this for now 🙂

In other news… I am doing a phenomenal job of procrastinating packing for our camping trip. That and I am suffering greatly from my allergies this season. Each year I vow to wait the 6 hours at the walk in clinics to get the allergy shot… and never quite end up miserable enough to do it! Last night I was given a big hug by the worship co-ordinator at my church when she learned that despite me having nearly no speaking voice I can still sing.

So that leads us to the trivial bit of learning for the day. Did you in fact know that singers can, in fact, sing and sing very well despite most throat ailments? When trained, a singer actually projects their voice and the sound you hear is actually formed in the upper back part of the mouth. A sore-throat does make it hurt more however you sound only changes in that it is often more rich and vibrant.

By definition sore-throat here means the sore throat that makes you loose your speaking voice. Typically when a singer cancels a show because they can’t sing it is because they’ve strained their vocal cords. These lie about 1 – 2 inches below the part of the throat that most people refer to when they say they have a sore throat.

Au revoir! C’est temp pour moi d’allez au magasin… d’excuse my poor french… we’re only starting that this year!

    The best thing for a strained voice are Vocalzone Throat Pastilles. Use them as part of your routine and you shouldn’t have any problems.
