It's obvious as we check social media in the morning that many people are beginning to go back to public places. It's good to see, yet it's still scary with all the unknowns. But when has life ever promised to provide a plan? I mean, we can plan as much as we want, but things don't always go as planned.
But enough about all that mess. Life in the Lustig Haus has stayed pretty busy. Valina has hit another wall with song writing, but keeps working at it. If nothing else, there's a little autoharp rehearsal going on. Ross has continued to run tests on the computer to make the online shows as top quality as possible with the equipment and finances available. The test run last Saturday (Valina's bar scene starring Little Dipper. their toy bird that "drinks" water) went pretty well, even switching between different cameras, AND captions! Hopefully that will all still work this Saturday!
Sunday morning, when we got home from church, where Ross is also assisting with the online video / sound, one of our laptops crashed, so Ross has been working for the past several days to get it wiped clean and re-built. Dang computers! We can't live with them, or without them!
We did an online poll asking which platform for the live performance people preferred; facebook or youtube. Facebook, allowing real time comments and replies was the big winner with most of our online audience. A few people are still only able to catch our shows on youtube, so we'll make sure to save the facebook videos, then load them to youtube.
Not a lot else to discuss right now. We hope to see you this Saturday night!
