Twentieth century Russian wristwatches are too costly for many native buyers, but they are still inexpensive for Western Collectors, and are becoming extremely popular.

Collectors have long clamored for a definitive reference and this new book will satisfy even the most avid enthusiast, with photographs of over 500 watches manufactured in Russia and the USSR during the second half of this century, and explanations of their styles, workings, and manufacturers. Poljot, Wostok, and Slava wristwatches are covered, along with a sampling of pocket watches, deck watches, and marine chronometers. This book is a must for serious collectors in the growing field of Russian timekeepers.

Antique Pocket Watches and, unfortunately, me

Antique Pocket Watches and, unfortunately, me

I was really trying to take pictures of the watches, not me. Anyway the description below these gave a neat summary of the history of pocket watches.

"In the 15 and 16 centuries, the boom in maritime exporation and advances in science and technology, such as Galileo's discovery of the property of the pendulum, created the framework for creation of portable timepieces. German and French watchmaers initiated the trend, converting the portable carriage clock to a smaller, more decorative pocket watch worn on a chain around the neck or suspended from the belt. Cases were pierced in elaborate patterns to allow the wearer to hear the striking of the movement and covers were often made of rock crystal to allow the dial to be seen without the case being opened. Oval shapes were popular in the early 17th century, gradually giving way to faceted or lobed crystal shapes in later decades."

Waiting for the rain

Waiting for the rain

Waiting for the rain

Es una cancion del duo sueco Roxette incluida dentro del sexto album de estudio "Have A Nice Day", grabado en estudios de Marbella y Estocolmo en el ano 1998.

Contiene tres nuevas re-ediciones en espanol (no incluidas en la version internacional) publicado en 1999. Dicho album muestra una marcada diferenciacion de los trabajos anteriores de Roxette, tanto en las baladas, como “Wish I Could Fly”, como en los temas pop, marcado claramente en el potente “Stars”. El exito de su primer single “Wish I Could Fly”, se vio reflejado con el medio de millon de copias que se vendieron en un periodo muy breve de tiempo. La cancion llego al puesto n? 11 en el Reino Unido y a finales de 1999 fue incluida en la lista de las 10 canciones mas escuchadas del ano en Europa.


Roxette es un duo sueco formado por la cantante Marie Fredriksson y el cantante y compositor Per Gessle.
Han vendido 75 millones de discos y sencillos, cuatro de sus singles llegaron al N? 1 en el Billboard de EE. UU. y fueron la primera banda de habla no inglesa en grabar un unplugged para MTV. Su trayectoria se extiende por mas de dos decadas, tiempo en el cual han ganado diversos premios de la musica, tales como el World Music Award, premios MTV, los BMI de Inglaterra, y varios Grammys suecos.
Si bien el grupo se fundo en 1986, la fama internacional llego en 1989 cuando la cancion "The Look" los elevo al tope de las principales listas musicales de EUA; y luego por su participacion en Pretty Woman con su cancion "It Must Have Been Love", en su segunda version editada especialmente para este filme. Ademas escribieron canciones para otras peliculas como "Almost Unreal" para Super Mario Bros y "Stupid" para Spun.

Breve Historia

Marie Fredriksson y Per Gessle, ya habian formado con anterioridad bandas que tuvieron un importante exito local, sobre todo Per, como lider del grupo Gyllene Tider. Pero en 1986, los considerados como la mejor cantante y el mejor compositor del momento en Suecia, decidieron unirse para formar Roxette.
En 1986 grabaron su primer sencillo, “Neverending Love”, el cual estaria incluido en su primer album “Pearls Of Passion”. El single fue el primer Top Ten del duo en su pais natal, dando paso a posteriores ediciones de singles que lograron exito similar. El primer album de Roxette no salio del frio pais del norte, pero el exito local los llevo a vender mas de 200.000 copias en Suecia.
En 1988 publican "Look Sharp!", con el que realizaron una exitosa gira nacional. El album habia vendido mas de 300.000 copias en su pais (el equivalente a 7 discos de platino) sin embargo eso no logro atraer la atencion mundial. En 1989 las cosas cambiaron rotundamente: el disco se convirtio en un exito internacional gracias a un muchacho norteamericano que se encontraba en Suecia por motivo de un intercambio estudiantil. El joven americano recibio como obsequio el disco, el cual -tras su regreso a casa- lo presto a una emisora norteamericana. El single “The Look”, que habia rebotado en sus ediciones en Europa comenzo a ser solicitado por miles de oyentes en Minneapolis. A traves de copias enviadas a emisoras asociadas, Roxette conseguia dar su primer paso importante fuera de Suecia. En abril de 1989 la cancion se convirtio en el primer #1 de Roxette en Estados Unidos y en la primera cancion de un artista escandinavo en lograr esa posicion desde que ABBA lo consiguiese con “Dancing Queen” en 1977. “The Look” llego al #1 en otros 30 paises y al #7 del Reino Unido, convirtiendose en una de las canciones mas exitosas de esa decada.
En medio de la gira de promocion de “The Ballad Hits”, Marie sufre un desmayo y, tras realizarle estudios medicos para encontrar su causa, descubrieron un tumor en su cabeza. Marie fue operada satisfactoriamente, y se alejo de la musica para descansar con su familia.
Mientras tanto Per continuo como solista con trabajos como “Mazarin”, en 2003, y “Son Of A Plumber”, en 2005, su ultimo proyecto. Ya de vuelta en la musica Marie grabo un album como solista en 2004: “The Change”.
En diciembre de 2005 Per recibio en Londres un premio BMI por ser el compositor de dos de los temas mas radiados en los ultimos anos en las emisoras estadounidenses (“Listen to Your Heart” y “It Must Have Been Love”). A la entrega del premio tambien asistio Marie. En esta entrega de premios Per y Marie hicieron su primera aparicion en publico en casi tres anos.
Su proximo proyecto fue la caja recopilatoria "The Rox Box" (2006), en la que grabaron dos nuevas canciones ("One Wish-Reveal") y que incluye aparte los exitos mas conocidos, mas algunas rarezas y el MTV Unplugged. Dicho disco es lanzado por el cumpleanos numero 20 de la banda (1986-2006).
Debido a la enfermedad padecida por Marie,las ultimas presentaciones de Roxette se dieron durante fines de 2006 par

Kristy Pigeon founder of the Sagebrush Equine Training Center was also a Junior Wimbledon Champ and former top-10 player in the world.

My Interview with Kristy:


If you go back a month prior to when that photograph was taken, we were at the US Open when it all shook down a bit because Jack Kramer organized a tournament in Southern California where the price money for the men was something like $20-thousand dollars and the prize money for the women was approximately $2-thousand dollars and when we questioned him on that; his attitude was that was that nobody wanted to watch the women play. He said they were all coming to watch the men. That’s why most of the gate money should go to the men. We disagreed with his philosophy and decided to break away, even when faced with suspension from the United States Lawn Tennis Association. We thought we had enough strength in numbers. Out of the world’s top 10 we had everyone except Virginia Wade and Chrissie Evert. Chrissie was too young to make that decision and didn’t want to ruin her career, yet we paved the way for the next generation of great women players by proving that people would come out and watch women and it was a struggle because the first year of the Virginia Slims circuit we were going and sitting in K-marts and waiting for people to walk by and talk to us and meet us. We got up at 6 o’clock to go to local radio stations and doing interviews and trying to become sports personalities. In the end it paid off. We were thankful to Phillip Morris/Virginia Slims even though they are a cigarette company, at this point in time its quite controversial. It was a successful advertising campaign for them and it also provided us with money, equal prize money to show to the world that women in general could compete in attendance numbers for example with men.”

Billie Jean has always been a controversial figure who thrived in the limelight and I think back when she ate up and spit out Bobbie Riggs; that did a lot for women’s sports in general as well as tennis and it was a great moment in sports.


“I think we all could…but it makes you wonder because Margaret Court tried and she failed because she was always nervous when she played and needed calming down where as Billie Jean and myself as well, I like to be nervous and I always did better being more nervous than less nervous.”
