2023.06.05 23:31 confused_grenadille Job scam alert: If you have been contacted by 'Novo', 'Now', or 'Pulse' for an interview, please report them to the FTC, FBI, BBB, and the AG.

I have received 10 text messages and 7 emails from possibly the same people posing as different companies - first time 'NOVO' second time 'NOW' (also go by Now Concepts), third time 'Pulse Campaigns' (or Pulse), all claiming to be marketing consultancies located in the NYC and Jersey City area. I suspect this is a job scam as I never applied for a role and they're spamming me with interview invites. Personally, I find texting (they reached out via text, then email) to be very unprofessional for recruiters so I knew from the get-go they were untrustworthy. In this reddit thread you'll see people who attended their interviews confirming my suspicions of an MLM/Pyramid scheme. This other thread shows that they might be operating in multiple regions within the U.S.
The IP address for NOVO's url shows that they're located in Denmark (same for Pulse Campaigns) but their website and LinkedIn (which has fake employee profiles) is showing NYC as their location. The IP address for NOW reveals it's a Wix site (legit marketing firms/agencies do not operate Wix sites). All their websites are full of stock photos and word vomit, while Now's socials scream MLM sociopaths. NOVO claims they were founded in 2010 but Google reports their website to have been indexed in September 2022 (exactly the same for Pulse Campaigns).
It seems they've been around for some time and are constantly changing their names to evade the law. Personally I think it's better to report than ignore so this practice can be dealt with.
Sharing complaint-filing links below for convenience:
Local AG - https://ag.ny.gov/file-complaint/employment
FTC - https://reportfraud.ftc.gov/#/
FBI - https://www.ic3.gov/Home/FileComplaint
BBB - https://www.bbb.org/file-a-complaint/
Feel free to report them on LinkedIn as well, although it seems that LinkedIn moves at snail's pace compared to Indeed when it comes to reporting.

2023.06.05 18:51 Banjosaurous_Rex A badly neglected dog had to be put down and the mentally ill owner has no consequence.

MN. About a year ago my girlfriend's father bought his best friend a large dog to "get him off his back." His friend we'll call P is seriously mentally ill. He doesn't work or leave his studio apartment. The dog never got walked or left the apartment in over a year. When P started making threats about hurting his kids (whom he doesn't have contact with) and the dog, his friend intervened and with the help of my girlfriend went to the apartment and took custody of the dog. The following day the dog was taken to a vet who, after hours of testing, ran down a laundry list of serious medical issues the dog had. I won't go into all of it but the vet recommended it be humanly euthanized. My girlfriend and her father stayed with the dog during the process while P was home unaware. He still doesn't know what happened, but it is clear that he caused the suffering and death of this innocent creature. We have filed a complaint with the county, but we're told that it's very hard to prosecute someone for this kind of neglect. Especially someone who has a diagnosed mental illness. I'm wondering what legal avenues we have to make sure that P has some kind of consequence for this abhorrent behavior. His friend, who has money and supports him, refuses to stop enabling him. I'm not sure what we can do legally. We believe he needs to be admitted somewhere for his own safety and the safety of others but we can't figure out how to even do that. We asked for a well check, but we haven't heard anything about what if anything came from it. We probably won't. Looking for any advice on how to proceed. Thank you.
TL:DR A friend of a friend neglected a dog for a year in every way resulting in the dog being put down. Trying to get him in a hospital or in jail where he belongs.

2023.06.05 03:13 Eyyyo2Eyyyo3 If i order an amazon package to the address of a glc-parcel-shop, will something go wrong?

Posting this here, because i couldn't find an appropriate sub. The amazon sub doesn't seem to be for questions.
I'm ordering a package from amazon, and am not able to receive it at home, don't ask me why lmao. I'm from denmark, and here we have this thing called gls-parcel-shops (this). Essentially they let you send a package to them, and you can come get it at them. I have done it once before a long time ago, and i remember just doing it by writing the address of the shop as the shipping address. But that time, i knew that the shipper would be gls, but amazon doesn't seem to inform you who will be doing the shipping when you place an order. So i am worried that amazon will send the package with another shipper, and the parcel shop then won't receive it, and it will get lost somewhere in limbo. Do anyone know how this stuff works? I can't seem to find any information whatsoever on this stuff for some reason.

I have ground ivy really bad in my backyard and need to find some herbicide with triclopyr in it. Nowhere I’ve tried looking has it (Ace, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Wagners, etc) and evidently you’re unable to ship herbicides to MN?

2023.05.25 21:38 Jack-Fitch I Need Help With My Life

Hello everyone, I just wanted to talk right now here because I’m going through a very tough part of my life right now. Probably the biggest reason why I honestly feel depressed right now is because of the job I have right now and I feel all the time like I could always be doing something better or something else. The people there treat me well but I feel like I’m always continuing to just waste my life away doing the same, little, meaningless, soulless work I’ve been doing for almost 3 years now and I’m trying to do everything I goddamn can do to get me out of the position I am at at work.
For about 3 years now, I’ve been an employee at Home Depot and while I’ve met some good friends there, on the other hand I absolutely dread and hate going there nearly every day of my life because I absolutely hate the work I do lifting up concrete bags and pushing carts out of a parking lot. I need to do something else as a job and I really need advice because the more time I’m spending working a shitty job like that everyday, the more I’m just going to be wasting time in my life when I could be doing something way better and way smarter in the world.
I think of big people in history like Galileo who was able to accomplish seeing a new planet called Saturn and observed that it had rings. I think of people like Steve Jobs who accomplished making the iPhone and the entire company Apple.
What am I going to accomplish in my life if I just continue working this shit job at Home Depot in the parking lot just forever on end with no end in sight? Nothing. Absolutely nothing and I won’t end up anywhere.
I mean, it’s not like I ever failed high school. I graduated with a regents diploma and it’s one thing I’m actually proud of in my life. Sometimes I feel like human beings are just raised as cattle to be fed to the higher ups and politics at work hold people back from rising up in the world because nobody really wants to invest into you and teach you hard skills to put on your resume.
Everyday I feel like this world is just eating me up and I’m just a slave working in a parking lot because there’s no opportunities to find other avenues to find a career you want. I worked at Home Depot not because it was my passion to be there. I just found it because in this world, you are forced to have a job whether you think it’s passionate work for you that you actually see is intelligent and meaningful or not because you need to have a salary and so parents don’t just throw you out of their house.
I’m 21 years old now. I’ve been a student at Schenectady County Community College part time and I’ve also been an employee at Home Depot for 3 years almost now. I want to make this clear however. I love all my friends and bosses at work. The problem isn’t with that situation.
I hate my job only because I want to find better work to do and gain hard skills so that I can be hired at more other jobs so that way I don’t just get wasted in life.
I spend days sometimes hoping that I just get drunk sometimes and never wake up again because I hate having to work in the parking lot so goddamn much. I wish I had a job where I am at a desk doing work Vs. having to suffer working outside in the rain collecting carts all day every day. I absolutely hate the shit I do at work and I’m literally tired of doing this. I have wasted 3 years of my life doing meaningless work.
I’m just looking forward to this fall because I’m finally going to be a full time student at SCCC and taking 5 classes and I’m planning to quit Home Depot and next summer I’ll be working somewhere else gaining other experience. Please let me know what you think of this plan.
Please help me and please give me some advice on what I can do to fix this problem. I need to change where I’m at right now and do other work out there that I actually would learn things from. I need to gain some other experience and I need to have a plan of what career I actually want. Thanks for helping me get out of this situation. I appreciate it.

2023.05.23 18:54 PotentialJourney MN Beginners Grow Guide - Part 1 Countdown To Aug 1st

This series will be anyone in the great state on Minnesota that wants to grow cannabis. There is already a lot of informative subs, tutorials, and videos on the internet, if you are more advanced you may want to skip this series and start there. This series will be starting from the very basics and I want to show everyone just how easy growing your own cannabis can be. Feel free to use this thread or make your own if you have any questions, that is what this sub is here for.
I will be using and showing various products throughout the course of the grow. You do not need to use the same product or brand especially if you are able to find a cheaper alternative. Lets get started with what you would need to start growing.
Seeds. You can't grow great quality cannabis without having some quality cannabis seeds. It doesn't matter where you get your seeds as long as they are viable. I will be ordering some "cheap" seeds from the $2 menu on NASC for this series. Some might think you need to get the best genetics and to be completely honest the seeds on the $2 menu probably aren't the best genetics but why spend a lot of money on quality seeds from breeders like mephisto genetics or barney's farm if you are just learning.
Location. You will need to have a small dedicated area for your plants, most people grow indoors and use a grow tent. You can grow outside (outside grows in MNGrow), in a closet, or even construct your own room. I will be using a grow tent (4'X8'X8') for this series. The tent is quite large and I do not recommend unless you plan on growing other plants ( I grow tomatoes); I would recommend a 4x4 or 2x4 for smaller apartments.
Lighting**.** Lights along with the tent will be the most expensive pieces of equipment you will need to buy. You can't just use any house light. Yes florescent and "grow" lights will work but your plant will grow slow and you will have a very poor yield. High pressure sodium (HPS) and metal-halide (MH) lights used to be the best way to grow (some argue it still is). The best overall lights are LED lights, they will produce great yields and save a lot of power. Do not use "blurple" led lights. There are many quality brand names on the market I will be using 3x Spider-Farmer SF1000 lights https://www.spider-farmer.com/products/sf1000d/ (You only need 1x I recommend 2x). If you spend your money anywhere spend it on the lights.
Pot. You will need a pot or container of some sort to hold soil for this beginner grow; we can cover hydro later. Almost anything can be used as a growing container if you don't already have something. I am using a 7 gallon fabric pot and will also grow in a small planters pots to show the overall yield difference.
Soil. There is a lot of debate on what type of soil you should use in any grower community but we will not be using anything special. If you have the money you can use coco and buy the expensive living soil being offered. I will be using a bag of generic garden soil (cow, pig, chicken poop mix) I bought from home depot on sale for $2.50 and some perlite mixed in. Avoid using miracle grow brand soil or you may end up with harsh/chemical buds.
Fans. If you go anywhere outside and watch the plants, grass, even trees you will see wind constantly blows them around but rarely over. In the same manner your cannabis plants will do much better overall if you are able to put a small circular fan in the tent with them and imitate nature. What kind or size depends on your tent size but even a small fan in a big tent will do wonders.
Water. Everything needs water to live and your plants are no different. You can use any water source (well, tap, etc) but you will need to make sure the PH levels are in the correct levels. "When growing cannabis, it is important to maintain a pH level between 5.8 and 6.2, depending on the growing medium used." You can buy a PH meter and PH up/down to mix in with your water. If you do not want to deal with that you can also purchase gallons of purified drinking water from any store and just water the plants.
Power. You will need electricity to power the fans and lights. I use an extension cord ( 12 AWG rated for 1,110 Watts) and power strip. The system I am running uses about 400w, similar to a computer. You can also use a a timer (recommended) to automatically switch the lights/fans on and off during the day.
Carbon Filter. This part isn't explicitly necessary and will depend on your living area/conditions. If you don't need to have one it can save you some $$ but they aren't expensive overall. You can get basic amazon carbon filter kit for $61.
Nutrients. All plants need nutrients to grow. You do not expressly need to add nutrients if you are starting with good soil but adding nutrients will help growth and overall yield + potency. There are a lot of nutrient brands on the market and if you don't know anything about growing it can become overwhelming. NPK are the three you should remember as they are most vital. This series will be using both Fox Farm trio ( in 7 gal pots) and no nutrients to further show difference in the grow.
That is the end of what you will need for a basic grow. There are a lot of other things people will recommend and everyone has different needs. Again I'm trying to bring an economical setup that most people can follow and change to their personal preference. Now lets breakdown the costs of the setup so you can compare if it's worth it to you. None of the links below are affiliate and are similar to products I'm using.
Seeds: https://northatlanticseed.com/product/new-2-seed-menu/ $2 Seeds X 10 seeds with shipping is about $30. Seeds are currently legal to order. Try to get the Auto varieties when available if you are just starting.
Tent: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B072MT3TWL 96"X48"x80" $110
Lights: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B084L1Y7KR SF1000D X2 $144 (You only need 1x)
Pots: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B091Y1SCFN 7 Gal bags $22
Soil: I'm using store purchased soil that was on sale; You can use almost any soil source. https://www.amazon.com/FoxFarm-Ocean-Forest-Potting-Soil/dp/B007C9QKCO If you have money to burn. $0-$35 (my cost $2.50)
Fans: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0972X71DN Cheap fan $14
Water: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08HLXBBK4 PH Tester $13https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08JHDVBY2 PH Up/Down $18
Power: https://www.amazon.com/GE-Outlet-Protector-Extension-14092/dp/B00DOMYL24 $15
https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00MVFF59S/ $9
Filter: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B09955F9C1 Carbon Filter Kit $61
Nutrients: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00D93NIFY Fox Farm Trio $44
Total: $492.50 (+tax/shipping) Your costs may be more or less depending on what you may already have on hand or are willing to spend. You will have additional costs after this initial purchase (power, additional nutrients, water, or lights if you only purchased x1) but this will be the bulk of everything you need to grow some great quality cannabis legally in Minnesota.
If anyone is concerned about power costs this is a quick estimate;
2x SF1000d 200w + Carbon Filter and fan 50w = roughly 250w x 18 hours = 4,500W/day (4.5Kwh/day)
Depending on your electric costs $0.12/Kwh X 4.5 = $0.54/day and at $0.16/Kwh x4.5 = $0.72/day
Even with the fastest "quick harvest" seeds you will need 3-4 months = $65-$87 in electricity for a complete grow cycle.
In the end it will cost about $600 for the very first grow with significant cost reductions the longer you grow as subsequent grows will only costs power. For anyone that may be curious on yields, every plant is different even if we bought the same seeds we will have different results. You should not expect to be pulling pounds of these plants if it's your first grow. As beginner growers we should plan to hopefully see 1/2 to 1 oz per plant and consider it a good harvest.
I hope this helps everyone thinking about getting into growing I tried to be economical; please ask any questions or make your own posts. I have a few things to order before I can start but will post another thread once the seeds are started. Lets Grow MN!

2023.05.18 22:36 Prior-Interview2680 [Recap] Minnesota Muslim Pakistani/Western fusion wedding (280 guests)

[Recap] Minnesota Muslim Pakistani/Western fusion wedding (280 guests)
My husband and I got married in August 2022 in Minnesota. I know it’s late, but I thought other brides planning an intercultural or inter-religious wedding might find this post helpful!
My family is white and not Muslim, while his family is Muslim and Pakistani. We wanted to plan a day that blended our two traditions. The goal was that no one felt uncomfortable, and everyone could see things at the event that they recognized & that felt familiar to them, even if there were other things that were new! This meant that we did not have any explicitly fusion parts of our wedding day (which I’ll refer to as our shaadi) and just tried to pick what felt authentic to us. We also had a mehendi the night before the wedding, and a separate walima a month later (which was great for accommodating all the other local guests we couldn’t invite to our “smaller” shaadi day).
We invited 345 guests and had about 280 show up. Both of us are from Minnesota, so have large groups of local friends. My entire extended family is local and my husband's extended family all had to travel (some internationally). We relieved pressure on our guest list by hosting a mehendi (300 guests) and walima (500 guests) that included local friends not invited to our wedding ceremony and reception.
My mother-in-law planned this. We hosted it the day before our wedding ceremony and reception. Women and men in my husband's extended family who had traveled were invited. The men ate dinner and then left for a men's-only gathering at my husband's family home, while the women stayed for women-only dancing and singing. This was a great compromise to ensure that everyone was able to participate while still providing a women's only space later in the evening so that everyone felt comfortable dancing. Some photos (intentionally only of basic decor to protect people's privacy!): stage, my entrance. Our mehendi photographer was Rachel Lea.
Wedding Day
To make sure that we fit everything in, we had a whirlwind schedule. First, I got ready with my mom, sisters, and other bridesmaids and wore my western white wedding gown. My husband and I did a first look and took portraits with each other and my family. Then, my husband and the groomsmen (and his sister) left to meet the baraat (which assembled a few miles down the road) while I quickly changed into my Pakistani wedding outfit.
While I hid inside the farmhouse, my husband and the baraat arrived to dancing and music. My family and our guests greeted them. On our invitations, we listed "Baraat: 4:00, Ceremony: 4:30pm" and enclosed a card describing what a baraat was for my family and guests, and noted that they should arrive by 4pm in order to greet the groom's side. After about 15 minutes of dancing and celebration, all of our guests took their seats and our wedding party left to line up for the walk down the aisle. My husband and our officiant, his uncle, stood at the front of the ceremony.
Our wedding parties walked in to an instrumental version of "Simple Gifts." I followed and was escorted by both of my parents, and we started our nikah (wedding ceremony). If anyone would like the script we used to bridge the faith gaps between our two families, happy to provide!
Instead of personalized vows, which don't really have a place in a nikah ceremony, my husband and I introduced each other to our guests. Everyone really loved it and it was a great way to make the ceremony personal in a way we were comfortable with. Following this, my aunt did a reading from Paul's Letter to the Romans, verses 9-12, and my husband's friend recited from the Quran (Surah Rum 20-22) and read the translation. Our officiant then gave the khutbah (sermon) and performed the exchange of promises during the nikah ceremony. We then exchanged rings and signed our nikahnama (marriage contract) with witnesses. We left the ceremony as Ishq di Bajiyaan played and proceeded right into social hour, followed by our dinner reception and dancing!
Details on vendors and more photos are below!
Venue: Maple Ridge Farm in Taylors Falls, MN
the barn that we held our dance in

Our reception space
We got married at Maple Ridge Farm in Taylors Falls, Minnesota ($8500 for exclusive use of the venue Friday - Sunday, including use of the 12-bed farmhouse). The venue was perfect for an event like ours. The separate ceremony, dancing, and reception spaces were crucial for us, because it allowed members of my husband’s family who didn’t want to be around dancing or music to have separate spaces to talk and relax while the dancing was going on. The only downside was that there was a non-removable cross in the ceremony space. There was also a swing, which was a hit for photos and for watching the absolutely unbelievable sunset. We also used their DOC which was a $600 add on.

We decorated the wall with our engagement photos and photos from our parents and grandparents' weddings. We had lemonade, iced tea, and water stations around the venue as well.
Decor: My favorite part of the wedding! My mother is a decorator extraordinaire, and has actually started her own wedding decorating/rentals business if anyone in Minnesota is looking! We tried to embrace the natural beauty of the venue, which was gorgeously landscaped. All of our tableware was mismatched china plates, and my husband and I both used plates from each of my grandparents' wedding china at our sweetheart table. We used tres leches cakes from Cafe Latte in St. Paul as our centerpieces on each table. The cakes were a MASSIVE hit.
Catering: India Palace in Burnsville (cost unknown, gifted by husband’s family. About $28 per head for appetizers, dinner buffet and tea). All was zabiha halal. Our appetizers were mango lassi, vegetarian samosas, and channa. For dinner we served chicken biryani w/ raita, butter chicken, saag paneer, daal makhani, salad, and plain rice naan. We had stations throughout the venue with lemonade, iced tea, water, and soda and had carafes of water on each table. We had late-night wood fired pizza through the venue as well ($400). Dessert was tres leches cake from Cafe Latte in St. Paul (approx. $750 for 28 cakes).
Photographer: Empiria Studios ($4000 for 8 hours of coverage, second shooter, and engagement session). Best decision. LOVE Athena, and you will too if you see the photos! She did an amazing job capturing us, and we really wanted to be sure the photographer we chose was able to edit in a style that was true-to-color and reflected the actual and varied skin tones of us and our guests.

My custom anarkali from Luxurious 786
Bride’s attire ~ $2200. This included a custom anarkali (~$1100) from Mariam Kasbati (@Luxurious786 on instagram) which I wore for the ceremony. I changed into a second western dress from the Wedding Shoppe in St. Paul MN (bought a sample/returned dress for $600). I also wore shoes from Dolce Vita ($100) and desi jewelry from Festive Arts Jewelry on Etsy (bonus pic). To bring a little bit of desi representation to my western look, I added ear chains.
Groom's Attire: Simple grey Sherwani custom from Pakistan for the ceremony/appetizer hour, and he changed into a seersucker suit for the reception.
Wedding Bands: Both from Etsy. Bride's was moisannite (~$300) and groom's was tungsten ($60).
Florals: All florals except for the flower garlands we wore were purchased from Costco in bulk and assembled by me and my family. We probably spent around $1000 on flowers. I am very fortunate to have great family and friends who were willing to sacrifice their Thursday to assemble floral arrangements.
Favors: We had mithai from Tahoora as wedding favors.
DJ: Our DJ was Cody from DJCodyC Entertainment. Truly cannot recommend him enough. He learned and mixed an entire playlist of Desi and western songs, even though he'd never DJ'd a desi wedding before. It was AWESOME, and his willingness to learn a new style of music was incredible. Our dance floor never cleared all night - we were worried that people wouldn't want to dance to the desi music or vice versa, but everyone from both sides stayed on the floor all night!
Our Walima attire
My husband's family also hosted a walima one month after our wedding. This was an event primarily for local friends of my husband's family. We had about 500 guests and hosted it at the Intercontinental Airport Hotel in Eagan MN. This was ideal because guests that flew in did not need to rent a car. I was not very involved in the planning of this event, but it was really lovely and a great way to cap off our wedding experience!!
Some photos: Decor one, two, three, four
Attire was custom from Hilal Silk in Karachi, and absolutely STUNNING. Jewelry was purchased in Jaipur, India. My SIL did my mehendi. Photographer was Malley Yang Photography in St. Paul

'Discretion' is the new consumer buzzword
Today's newsletter is by Julie Hyman, anchor and correspondent at Yahoo Finance. Follow Julie on Twitter @juleshyman.

The headlines and punditry earlier this year trumpeted the resilience of the consumer. But two important events yesterday threw a wrench into that narrative – and highlighted the new buzzword when it comes to the consumer: “discretion.”
In other words, Americans are being more choosy about how they spend their money.
First, Home Depot (HD) came out with an unusually grim outlook, which CEO Ted Decker blamed not only on lower lumber prices and weather effects, but “softer demand for kitchen, flooring and bath.” Decker acknowledged that 2023 will be a “year of moderation.”
Then, retail sales in April rose by half of what economists had predicted, with weakness in autos, gasoline, electronics, furniture and clothing.The retail sales number – which did beat estimates ex-autos and gas, rising 0.6% – is not inflation adjusted. That’s a key distinction, Greg Daco, chief economist at EY-Parthenon, told Yahoo Finance.
“If you adjust for inflation, you’re looking at a fairly soft picture when it comes to the U.S. economy and the state of consumer spending,” he said. “The goods sector is seeing a significant pullback. The services sector, less of a significant pullback, but much more discretion being applied in an environment of high prices and high interest rates.”
“What you are seeing is a cooling, more strategic decisions being made and increased elasticity,” Daco added. “People are more sensitive to prices. As prices continue to rise, there is more of that demand reaction than there had been in the prior two years.”
Another indication of that demand reaction: While investors gobbled up food stocks following their earnings, the price-over-volume trend that’s been dominating consumable companies’ strategy also illustrates that shoppers are being more particular.
Now the question is how long that choosiness will last, said Michael Lasser, UBS U.S. Hardline & Broadline and Food Retail Analyst, in a conversation following Home Depot’s numbers. “Do we start to see an improvement as we get into June and July, or is this just the new norm: the consumer is fatigued on all the things that he and she have purchased over the last few years."
The bottom line, Lasser said, is that "it’s best to have cautious expectations on consumption of discretionary goods from here.”
Investors don’t have to wait long for more clues. Target’s on tap for today, Walmart tomorrow, and we’ll be zeroing in on their outlooks.

2023.05.16 13:14 calicocatface Trident A-Range: Tracking the recording history and movement of all 13 consoles

I'm assembling a history of all 13 Trident A-Range consoles, their studios and albums recorded on them. I believe there's a lot of misinformation that's been put out there -- by Trident, Malcolm Toft, MTA, PMI Audio, and even UA and Softube. I feel bad for Sound Techniques, who had their "A Range" console name stolen and usurped by Trident, and now the trademark for it is owned by PMI Audio.

I - Sound Techniques, Trident Studios
II - Cherokee, Quad Sound, Smart Studios
III - Le Studio, Bennett House, New Monkey
IV - Sweet Silence, Avast!, Bomb Factory and more
V - The Barn, American Recording/Emblem Studio

Unlucky 13
There were 13 original Trident Studios A-Ranges. Allegedly only 5 or 6 survive.
According to this comment there were 2 production runs. The first 6 and second 7. This is in line with the 2 different schematics for the Trident A-Range. A 1038 channel strip from 1973 (gutshot, schematic, and a 2038 channel strip from 1975 (gutshot, schematic).

Gwyn Mathias says the original desk went to Matrix Studios, London. Ken Scott said it ended up in pieces in Vermont. See bottom of post for more info.
The first "Production" A Range was built for Crown Records in Tokio, and I believe the EQs were tweaked for that, and then the design stayed. I think the Crown desk may also have had the old-fashioned telephone-style (STC ?) illuminated mute switches (Source)
The mute switch is an STC/Plessey standard telephone-type switch. These were used in the first couple of B Ranges, too, and just might have been used in the first production A Range for Crown Records, Tokyo (Source)
In the Produce Like a Pro Cherokee Studio tour Bruce Robb says he believes their modified 48 channel console is the first Trident they bought, whoever this comment says the South African broker sold Trident A-Range was the one that was modified and expanded.

What is in a name?
A brief history
Sound Techniques started as a recording studio in Chelsea, London in 1965. The Sound Techniques' A-Range was built by Geoff Frost and John Wood from 1964-1971, only 14 were ever made. (Source)
The original Sound Techniques A-Range at Trident Studios was used to record "Hey Jude, 3 tracks off of the White Album, all the early Elton John stuff, all the early Bowie stuff, all the early Queen stuff, Rolling Stones Carly Simon, America" from Ken Scott himself.

Trident Studios
Trident Studios started in 1967 in St Anne's Court, Soho, London.
Their Sound Techniques' A-Range - the 5th A-Range console made by Sound Techniques. It was built in late 1967. Installed at Trident in early 1968. According to Ken Scott it lived in the recording room for around 18 months before being moved to the mix room, being replaced by another Sound Techniques A-Range.
Everything at Trident Studio from 1968 to 1971 was also recorded AND mixed on this desk. Afterwards and until late 1976, everything was mixed on this particular Sound Techniques desk. (Source)
In 1971 "the [Trident] engineering team at the venerable studio facility decided to create their very own console" (Source, Source)
All original Trident produced Trident A-Range consoles featured an aubergine colour (Source%20color)) and a Belclere (not Bellclaire) Zutt012a input transformer. (Source, Source)

The original Trident A-Range desk
"had 24-way McMurdo Red Range connectors on the channels." (Source)
"the Trident studio board - really the prototype and with 24 -way McMurdo Red Range connectors on the channels instead of the later 32-way ones on the production boards )
I prototype-wired the first "proper" A-Range channel, physically designed and made the Loom board for the manufacture of the input channel looms, moved on to wiring the console frames, and ended up responsible for the manufacturing wiring shop at the North Road factory..." (Source)
"From memory it had Seidel (sp?) faders... Subsequent A Range boards all had P & Gs." (Source)
"I asked Malcolm about when the A and B Range consoles came out and he said... "the first A Range was in fact manufactured at the end of 1971." (Source)
"Malcolm has helped me as well with some good input on this, but more details change the date a bit. There were once claims saying 1970, but I have been digging very deep into A-Range history. While they may have completed some circuits/modules for the desk in 1971, the finished console seems to have been completed later in 1972, and was installed mid/late 1972 at St Anne's Court, to replace the Sound Techniques console. There is a December 1971 photo of the chassis being wired, so some circuits were complete, but not the whole console. In summer of 1972, they had done press about the "just completed" desk with new photos before the install. It seems quite unlikely to wait 8-10 months to install something like that. Bowie's Aladdin Sane was one of the first records done on the new console, October 1972." (Source)
"Trident installed the first A-Range in the main studio in 1972 and moved the Sound Techniques A-Range console that was in that room into the mix room." (Source)

Albums and timeline
1968 - The Beatles - Hey Jude - recorded at Trident Studios on the Sound Techniques' A-Range.
1971 - America - Self titled album

Fate of Trident's original two Sound Techniques A-Range consoles
"One of them (I didn't know there were two) was in pieces in cardboard boxes in a corner of the production area of the Trident North Road factory for years." - Gwyn Mathias, former module wireman @ Trident Studios (Source)

Fate of the original Trident A-Range
"I am positive that dealer Don Larking had the prototype from St Anne's Court at one point and sold it. I think that original A range was the one in Matrix in Little Russell St near the British museum. I recorded on it several times at Matrix, and can remember having to swap out a monitor module as the bass end was non-existent on it, but I can't remember how many pins the connector had. I will ask Don Larking and see if he remembers anything about it!" (Source)
"The original, and I do mean ORIGINAL, the one from Trident, is in pieces in Vermont." - Ken Scott

2023.05.16 09:05 -Bonjour-- 2000 km road trip through Poland

A GPS is very recommendable in Poland, because the place names are signposted almost only in Polish.
Our first destination was in BRESLAU (Wroclaw), where we stayed in a modern hotel, a bit outside the center, but easily accessible on foot or by streetcar. Across from the hotel is the Sky Tower, built only in 2006-2013, with offices, apartments and stores, the tower is the second tallest building in Poland at 212 meters.
The Oder metropolis Wroclaw - also called "Venice of the North" - is the fourth largest city in Poland with 640,000 inhabitants. The city was once the richest trading city of the German East.Wroclaw was 70% destroyed during the 2nd World War. Reconstruction by Polish reconstructionists and craftsmen gave the city its present beautiful appearance and offers visitors a wide range of cultural and tourist attractions. The city of "100 bridges" was "European Capital of Culture" in 2016.
On the way from the hotel to the center we saw the music theater "Capitol", which was inaugurated only in September 2013. Then on one street we noticed two groups of figures cast in bronze. The group on one side of the street descends into the abyss to reappear on the other side of the street. The "Transition" groups 1977-2005 represent the symbol of the fall of communism and the rise to democracy.
The center of the city is the 175 x 212 m large market square (Rynek) onto which 11 streets flow. In the center of the square is the magnificent Old Town Hall, built in the 14th century in Gothic and Renaissance styles - a valuable architectural monument for Poland. The late Gothic south facade with elaborately designed windows is particularly beautiful. On the ornate central gable you can see an astronomical clock from 1580. Today the building houses a museum.
The market square is surrounded by magnificent renovated town houses. An imposing sight is the Elizabeth Church on the Rynek (Market Square) in Gothic style made of brick. The present three-nave basilica was built in the early 14th century. The church has almost 2000 seats and is one of the largest churches in Poland. The checkerboard tiled roof was created during the renovation in 1890-93. Fortunately, the church was only slightly damaged during World War 2. The tower was originally 130 m high, but it collapsed in 1529 due to storm and hail. In 1535 the new tower was built with "only" 86 m. Inside, the Baroque high altar from 1653 and the richly decorated choir stalls are particularly impressive. The two narrow houses next to the church are popularly called "Hansel and Gretel".
A square worth seeing is the Salt Market (Plac Solny) with the beautiful patrician houses. There, florists sell bouquets and arrangements in gorgeous colors. Numerous restaurants line the market square, e.g. the "Schwednitzer Cellar" (Piwnica Swidnicka) in the town hall or the brewery "Spiz", where beer has been brewed for 500 years and the food is plentiful and good.
It was not easy to find the market hall, which was built in Art Nouveau style at the beginning of the 20th century. But if you show on the map where "Hala Targowa" is, somehow "with your hands" you are told how to get there. At the market there were fruits and vegetables in abundance, with a conspicuous number of berry varieties. What was particularly striking was the large selection of grave wreaths, grave decorations, etc. The mostly Catholic inhabitants of Poland are often very devout, and therefore have a special way of dealing with their dead. The graves are decorated with elaborate wreaths and arrangements.
The city center includes not only the Old Town but also Sand Island and Cathedral Island. To go to the two islands, we got on the streetcar at the hotel and, with the help of locals, got off at the right place....On Sand Island (Wyspa Piasek) stands the mighty church of "Mary on the Sand", a brick Gothic building built in 1334-1425. The church was rebuilt after it was badly damaged in WW2. We then crossed the cast-iron Cathedral Bridge to reach the Cathedral Island (Mos Tumski). The Cathedral Island is the oldest part of Wroclaw, apart from the churches it is also the seat of the Archbishop and the clergy, and is thus the spiritual center of Wroclaw. First you come to the double church "To the Holy Cross", which is actually a triple church: namely Lower Church, Cross Church and Upper Church. In a privileged location directly above the Oder River is the Archbishop's Palace with its beautiful garden..
The most imposing building on the Cathedral Island is the Cathedral in brick Gothic style, also called the Cathedral "John the Baptist". A first church was built here already in the year 1000, the present cathedral is the fourth. The present three naves in the style of a basilica date from the 14th century, both towers from the 15th century. The cathedral was rebuilt after the heavy destruction in the 2nd World War after 1945. Inside the church, the sacristy and the Lady Chapel are particularly worth seeing. The cathedral has a total of 20 chapels. On the baroque altar you can see reliefs made of alabaster. After visiting the interior of the church, we took an old elevator in one of the towers to a viewing platform. From there you have a beautiful view of Wroclaw and the Oder River. The elevator is operated by an older man, if you want to go down again, you have to ring the bell
What do you do at 36° in the Oder metropolis Wroclaw? A boat tour on the Oder! The boat tours start every hour from the Sand Island (Wyspa Piasek) and take about 1 hour there and back. First, you pass Cathedral Island - which is actually not an island because of the 19th-century filling in of an arm of the Oder River - with beautiful views of the Holy Cross Church, the Cathedral and the Archbishop's Palace. One passes the National Museum and various university buildings. From far away you can see the impressive blue Emperor's Bridge (Grunwaldzki Bridge). This steel bridge with two mighty granite piers was built in 1910. Fortunately, the banks of the Oder are still natural with bushes, trees and reeds. Very quickly you leave the houses behind. On one of the banks in the middle of nature we saw an accumulation of caravans - probably either Roma or dropouts.
On weekends, the boat goes up to Hala Slulecia (or Hala Ludwoa) - the Hall of the Century - a World Heritage Site. This building, erected in 1913, was the world's largest domed structure made of reinforced concrete at the time. A festival hall is located here, and exhibitions are held. The hall was built for the 100th anniversary of the liberation from Napoleonic rule. At that time it was the largest reinforced concrete dome in the world. It was used as a concert hall and a sports hall, exhibitions are held there. The hall is the center of the exhibition center. Adjacent to the hall is a monumental pergola, which also includes a small artificial lake. In the middle of it is the Wroclawska Fontanna (Fountain), where (especially in summer) modern sound-light-laser installations can be seen after dark. Also in 1913, the Japanese Garden was established on this site. In front of the hall you can see the "Steel Needle", which is about 100 meters high. This was erected in 1948 after the expulsion of the German inhabitants and the resettlement of Poles (many from Lviv in Ukraine) who had also been expelled from their homeland.
From Wroclaw we drove to WARSAW (Warszawa), where we booked into an art deco hotel in the center. After Wroclaw, Warsaw seems very "sober" at first. The city with its 1.7 million inhabitants is not only the capital - in 1596 the residence of Sigismund II was moved from Krakow to Warsaw - but the cultural, economic and political center of Poland. Warsaw is situated on both sides of the Vistula River, connected by numerous bridges. On the wide streets of the city is a busy car traffic. Warsaw is still experiencing a construction boom, with many modern buildings and skyscrapers being built. But there are also prefabricated quarters and monumental buildings of Stalinist architecture.
During World War II, there was severe suffering especially in this city: the Polish population was oppressed by the Nazis, the Jews were first sent to the ghetto or were immediately murdered in Auschwitz, as were numerous Polish intellectuals. Especially after the Warsaw Uprising on August 1, 1944, 90% of the city was systematically destroyed by the Nazis.Reconstruction was a masterstroke, and Warsaw is now the most important commercial and economic center in Central and Eastern Europe. In the center of the city dominates the 230 m building "Palace of Culture and Science", despite many skyscrapers around it still the tallest building in Poland with 42 floors, 3288 rooms and almost 900,000 cubic meters of enclosed space . The monstrous building - completed in 1955 - was an official gift from Stalin and the Soviet Union to the Polish people. But the Poles rather saw it as an unloved symbol of power of the Russians for almost 45 years of oppression and called it "Stalin's thorn". Nowadays, this building is nevertheless considered a landmark of the city.
In the Culture Palace there are the Tourist Information, theaters, cinemas, exhibition rooms and the Museum of Technology. On the 30th floor is an observation deck, from where you have a beautiful view of Warsaw in good weather. Since 2000, the building has the world's highest tower clock, the hands are about 6 meters long. Across the street is the city's main train station and next to it, under a glass dome, is the new shopping center "Golden Terraces" with 239 stores, including all the world's famous labels."Stare Miasto" is the oldest part of the city, dating back to the 13th century, and the most important sight of Warsaw. The richest citizens lived here because they were protected by the city walls. The Old Town was 90% destroyed in the 2nd World War, most of the buildings have been reconstructed, the reconstruction took many decades (since 1980 Unesco World Heritage Site).
The "Nowy Swiat" is the Warsaw promenade with restaurants and stores - full of life with many passers-by. There we ate our first "Pierogi" in a small restaurant. The "Nowy Swiat" goes over into the "Krakowskie Przedmiescie", on this street is also the university, founded in 1816, nowadays consisting of many buildings, as it is the largest educational institution in Poland with about 260,000 students. One of the many university buildings is the former Potkanski Palace. Also on this street is the Church of St. Joseph, built in the mid-18th century.
On the "Krakowski Przedmiescie" there is also the Presidential Palace (since 1994). This magnificent building is also called "Palais Radziwill", after one of the owners of this building. The beginning of construction was in 1643, but it was frequently rebuilt. The palace remained in private ownership for a long time. The equestrian statue in front of it depicts Prince Jozef Poniatowski (1763-1813), commander-in-chief of the Polish army and marshal of France, who specifically supported Polish independence. Warsaw has especially many monuments, on this street you can see, among others, the monument to the Polish poet of Romanticism Adam Mickiewicz. A famous building is the Bristol Hotel, built in 1900, always a meeting place of important guests in the capital.
Then, finally, you come to the Castle Square (Plac Zamkowy) with the 22-meter-high Sigismund Column. King Sigismund made a special effort to make Warsaw the capital of Poland. The Royal Castle (Zamek Królewski) was the official seat of Polish kings since the end of the 16th century. The castle with its plain facade was also rebuilt with donations from the population after the heavy damages during the 2nd World War. Inside, the Marble Room and the Senator's Hall are the most beautiful rooms. In the castle garden we had the opportunity to have a look at the Vistula River, at least from a distance. Around the castle square there are numerous restaurants and cafes. In the middle of the square there is a bronze sculpture with Warsaw's coat of arms. This square was the center of city life from the 13th to the 19th century. The completely destroyed burgher houses with their three-striped facades, gabled roofs and colorful wall decorations were rebuilt in the 1950s in keeping with their style.
Hop-on hop-off buses in Warsaw run only hourly, and then - because of traffic congestion - they are not very punctual. So you would have to allow an hour for a stop - so one day would hardly be enough. So we had no choice but to use this bus for a city tour without getting off, to at least get an overview of the city and its sights. We passed the Alexander Church, built in 1818-25 on the model of the Roman Pantheon. This church building was realized for the visit of Tsar Alexander I because of the newly founded Kingdom of Poland. The Wisniowiecki Palace on Bankowy Square was built in the Italian Renaissance style from 1825-1830 and was privately owned for many years. Today it houses the city administration and the official residence of the mayor. Impressive from the bus was the old city wall, the construction of which began in the 14th century and lasted over 200 years, and a large part of which survived the 2nd World War. The bus passed the Presidential Palace, for many years private property. Since 1994 it has been the official residence of the Polish president.
At the time of the Nazi invasion in World War 2, there were about 350,000 Jews living in Warsaw, which was one third of the population, west of the Old and New Towns. This area later formed the ghetto when all Jews had to move here. In November 1944, a wall was erected, thus sealing off the ghetto from the rest of the city. Almost half a million people had to live here under terrible living conditions (epidemics, hunger, arbitrariness). From 1942, most of the inhabitants were taken from the Umschlagplatz (a memorial wall was erected here in 1988) to one of the concentration camps.
The Monument to the Ghetto Heroes was unveiled on the 5th anniversary of the Warsaw Ghetto Jewish Uprising in April 1948. Willy Brandt's genuflection on the occasion of his visit to Poland in December 1970 also took place here. Next to it is the Museum of the History of Polish Jews.
We also passed the monument to the "Warsaw Uprising of 1944". After the bus passed the new large shopping mall "Arkadia", we also passed the oldest Catholic cemetery "Cmentarz Powazkowski", which has existed for 200 years, where some of the most famous Poles rest, and then the Jewish cemetery from 1806. Here there are about 200,000 graves on an area of about 33 hectares. This cemetery was hardly damaged in the 2nd World War.
The Monument to the Poles who died and were murdered in the East, to Poles deported to forced camps in Siberia and to the victims of Katyn was erected in 1995.
In retrospect, Warsaw surprised us in a positive way. It is a lively city with many young people.
Our trip continued in the direction of Masuria.
The region of Mazury in the northeastern part of Poland borders on the Russian enclave of Kaliningrad, the southern part is in the former East Prussia. It is the land of 3000 lakes, in the middle of the large lake plateaus lie the towns of Gizycko and Mikolajki.
In the untouched nature there is a unique flora and fauna: mixed forests, clear lakes, numerous rivers and canals, ponds and swamps, many species of birds and species-rich wild meadows with rare plants.
The history of Masuria is similar to that of many border regions of Europe, influenced by different ethnic groups and cultures. From the 9th to the 14th/15th century, pagan Pruzes lived here. With the foundation of the Teutonic Order, the bloody crusades against this people began.
Craftsmen and merchants from Germany and Holland settled here. In the middle of the 16th century came the Reformation. Masuria suffered from the Nordic Wars and the plague. Since 1870 there was an increased Germanization. With the 2nd World War and especially after it began the expulsion and persecution of the local population, and other expellees arrived from the Polish Eastern territories, Belarus, Ukraine and Lithuania.
After a good three-hour drive from Warsaw - partly highway - we arrived in Olsztyn (ALLENSTEIN) around noon. With a lot of traffic on the normal roads, we sometimes were overtaken "criminally".
Allenstein has about 175,000 inhabitants, the capital of Masuria and Warmia is also the cultural and economic center. The city is embedded in a charming landscape with 15 lakes, the river Lyna and many small canals. The largest lake with 412 ha is the so-called city lake "Jezioro Ukiel".
The center of the city is the picturesque Rynek with baroque town houses, arcades, numerous cafes and beer gardens. The High Gate (Brama Wysoka), built in 1378, was at times an armory and prison. This is the only preserved of the original three gates - the town's landmark. Nowadays there is a simple hostel there. The extensively renovated 14th century Order Castle an is the historical core of today's town. From 1516-21 Nicolaus Copernicus was the administrator of the cathedral chapter here, and he defended the town against the Knights of the Teutonic Order in 1521. Some exhibition rooms commemorate the famous astronomer. The complex has been accessible from the city only since the middle of the 18th century. North of the old town is the Lutheran Church built in 1877 and the Jacobi Cathedral built at the end of the 14th century ,
We continued to NIKOLAIKEN (Mikolajki), originally a small fishing village, now a well-known vacation resort in Masuria. our hotel is located directly on Lake Nikolaiken, very idyllic and quiet.Nikolaik is a small town with only 3800 inhabitants, but nevertheless it seems to be the "sailing capital" of Masuria. Water sports are possible on three lakes around Nikolaik: Lake Nikolaik (Jez Mikolajski), Lake Spirding (Jez Smiendwy) and Lake Talty (Jez Talty). The town is a base of the "White Fleet" and an important water sports center, which can be seen in the marina with many boats. There are numerous hotels, guesthouses and apartments in all price ranges, as well as camping sites. On the lake promenade and around the market square with its fountain you can find stores, restaurants and cafes. Boat tours are offered on the lake, but only in good weather and if enough people want to go.
The GPS was programmed to get to Lötzen (Gizycko), because the roads are sometimes not signposted or only in Polish. We passed through small villages with old farmhouses and drive on small roads with avenues of trees, mostly lime trees - where else can you find something like that? It is said that Masuria is rich in landscape but poor in economy.
The place LÖTZEN between Lake Löwentin (Niegocin) and Lake Mauersee (Mamry) is a popular place for sailors. GIZYCKO - also called the summer capital of Poland - is the biggest town in the middle of the Masurian lakes. There are 100 lakes all around, partly connected by canals. So the best conditions for water sports - sailors, windsurfers, canoeists, etc. Of course there are also many hiking trails.
From Nikolaiken we went on to ELBING (Elblag). Our GPS sent us quasi "through field, forest and meadows". The streets were partly in bad condition, thereby quite narrow, fortunately hardly traffic. But on the other hand it was so that we could really enjoy this beautiful area: the forests with birches and oaks, the linden avenues, now and then a small lake and tiny villages - it was really somehow "between nowhere and nowhere"...
The city of Elblag has 130,000 inhabitants, it is located not far from the Vistula Lagoon. The Vistula Lagoon is separated from the Gdansk Bay by the Vistula Spit. As early as 1237 the Crusaders established a fortified settlement here. Elblag - as it was called then - received the town charter in 1246 and became one of the Hanseatic towns on the Baltic Sea. The city was the second largest in East Prussia, and experienced an economic boom in the 19th century through tobacco cultivation, as well as ship and locomotive building.
During World War 2, Elblag was completely destroyed, and reconstruction is still ongoing. There are only a few restored streets and still many gaps between buildings. The new buildings must be architecturally adapted to the old style. Some of the streets and alleys in the old town are still in poor condition, with large puddles forming everywhere during heavy rain. On the other hand, one can see the upswing in the number of new restaurants, all of which are run by young people.
In the course of the last few years, more industry has settled here again: Machine and turbine construction, clothing, wood and food industries. Also important is the inland port on the Oberland Canal south of the city, from where ships also sail to the Vistula Lagoon and on to Kaliningrad.
Our hotel is also located in the historical core of the city in a beautiful reconstructed burgher house. From the middle of the 16th century the kings of Poland, Sweden and Prussia as well as the Russian tsar stayed here. In the "Stary Rynek" you can find restaurants and stores as well as the town hall.
A landmark in the city is the massive Gothic Church of St. Nicholas from the 13th century with its 96 m high tower. The church got its name after the patron saint of sailors. The interior of the church is well worth seeing with beautiful colorful windows, the Renaissance pulpit, the bronze baptismal font and the triptych from 1510.
Not to be overlooked is the Market Tower (Brama argowa), a remnant of the former city wall. The tourist information office is located there on the upper floor. In the summer, various events are also held in the tower. From the tower we saw the mighty former St. Mary's Church, built by Dominican monks, which today houses a very famous contemporary gallery.
Elblag is also famous for the Upperland Canal, which runs 82 km from here to Ostróda. The canal from the 19th century connects several lakes, and the height difference of 99 m is overcome with locks. Ships are loaded onto rail cars and transported by elevator to the next body of water. The trip takes a total of 11 hours.
FRAUENBURG (Frombork) - located on the Vistula Lagoon - received its town charter in 1310, it is only about 20 km from the Russian border and about 70 km from Kaliningrad. At the beginning of the 17th century, a commercial port was built, but it could not compete with the port of the Hanseatic city of Elblag. So only a landing place for fishing boats remained.
This town became famous mainly because of Nicolaus Copernicus. The astronomer lived here from 1517 until his death on May 24, 1593. For a long time it was not clear whether Copernicus was actually buried in the cathedral. It was not until 2005 that archaeologists found his remains under a floor slab during excavations there. A tomb was erected in the cathedral in honor of the famous astronomer.
in the bell tower opposite the Gothic cathedral on the cathedral hill there is a planetarium with Foucalt's pendulum. The 46.5 kg sphere hangs from a 28 m long steel cable. Copernicus developed the heliocentric - the sun is the center of the earth - theory, which states that the earth revolves around the sun once a year, and that day and night occur because the earth revolves around its own axis. These teachings of Copernicus were widely accepted over the years, including by Galileo. The latter was condemned as a heretic because he could not produce any proof, and later publicly recanted. It was not until 1851 that the Frenchman Foucault demonstrated in Paris the correctness of Copernicus' theory of the earth's rotation with a freely swinging pendulum. A heavy ball on a long rope traveled over the ground - but it is the ground itself that is rotating.
You can climb up the bell tower and from there you have a beautiful view - depending on the weather - of the small town of Frombork, the Vistula Lagoon and, of course, especially the cathedral. Next to the massive baroque bell tower you can see the small fortified tower, the oldest part of the fortification ring, here was supposedly the study and observatory of Copernicus.
The Cathedral Hill (Wzgorze Katedralne) is surrounded by a defensive wall and has a large main gate. The Bishop's Palace with the Copernicus Museum is also worth seeing.
Many died in the battle of Tannenberg 1410, but the Marienburg could be held. After political and economic crises and a revolt of the subjects, Marienburg Castle went to the Polish king Casimir Jagello in 1457. For three centuries alternately ruled here.
The cathedral with the eight-bay nave was built on the so-called Cathedral Hill from 1329-1388 and was repeatedly expanded and rebuilt over time. It is remarkable that the cathedral has only four ornamental towers at the corners. The rich interior decoration of the cathedral from different centuries is a mix of Baroque and Rococo styles.
The ceiling of the nave looks like a star vault. On the side you can see the beautiful old main altar "Mother of God with Child". The new late Baroque main altar is made of black marble. To the left and right of the nave are the many altars. Also magnificent is the organ from 1684 and the altar of St. Anne.
Almost half a million people tried to escape across the Vistula Lagoon at the end of World War II, many drowned, others died in ice and snow. Outside the park there has been a memorial stone for the 30,000 victims of this escape for several years.
Unfortunately, the weather became worse and worse, it started to rain heavily. Nevertheless, we took a look at the city of Frombork, which was 80% destroyed after WW2. In the small harbor the boats were bobbing around. And when I wanted to take a look at the Frische Haff, I got dripping wet - despite my umbrella.
From Elblag we drove in the direction of Gdansk, but on the way we made a stop at the world-famous Marienburg. From Elblag we did not have far to the MARIENBURG (Malbork). When asked, we were told that the Marienburg has about 500,000 visitors a year.
Marienburg (Malbork) - a work of art of fortified and residential architecture of the late Middle Ages - is considered to be the largest brick work built by man. The world's largest Gothic castle complex occupies an area of about 21 hectares, the volume of the buildings totals over 250,000 cubic meters. The castle is one of the most impressive buildings I have seen.
First you arrive in the bustling city of Marienburg (Malbork) with about 39,000 inhabitants, which was founded as early as the 13th century. From the center you can see the mighty castle complex from afar: the Marienburg of the Teutonic Knights of the Teutonic Order, which is of course a Unesco World Heritage Site. The town and the castle are situated on the Nogat River, an estuary of the Vistula.
Marienburg Castle became the most important part of the German Order's fortification system in Prussia. In 1300 the castle became the seat of the Grand Masters and was massively expanded. In the 14th century it took the form of a three-part fortification: the high castle (monastery), the middle castle (seat of the Grand Master) and the outer castle (farm buildings). Marienburg became the diplomatic, military, economic and religious center. Knights from many European countries gathered here for banquets and tournaments.
The army of the Order was defeated by the Polish-Lithuanian forces in the Battle of Tannenberg in 1410. The Polish and Prussian rulers ruled here alternately. After the first partition of Poland in 1772 the fortress went to Prussia. It was not until 1945 that Mariánské Lázn? became Polish again.
In the last phase of the Second World War, Mariánské Lázn? suffered severe destruction and was rebuilt from the ruins over time. The castle continues to be the subject of intensive restoration work. Malbork became a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1997.
Nowadays, the fortress on the Nogat River belongs to the Malbork Castle Museum, which was founded in 1961. The 20-hectare castle complex is surrounded by mighty walls and moats. The most commonly used building material was ceramic products - bricks and ceramic details made of clay. The foundations of the castle as well as the gate portals and door frames - especially exposed to enemy attacks - were built of granite - about 4500 cubic meters of granite were needed. All the material was brought by oxcarts. Foundations had to be dug, water conditions had to be regulated, bricks and roof tiles had to be baked, timber had to be brought in and processed, metals had to be smelted and glass and other building materials had to be produced. The many people who worked here had to be fed and housed. It was a huge undertaking for that time.
In the north, the Marienburg is surrounded by the outer castle, which occupies the largest area. Here there were once stables, storehouses, workshops and apartments for servants. The largest complex is the so-called Karwan, which used to be a coach depot. After extensive conservation work, it now houses a conference room and the museum library, and on the first floor a beautiful medieval hall.
The main gate for the eastern entrance to the outer castle is flanked by two towers. The Lower Rose House and the tower above the bakery, together with the main gate and the karwan, belonged to the eastern defensive wall of the outer castle designed in the 14th century.
The economic ensemble with the Laurentius Chapel, the former firmarie for servants and the bath tower was created during a castle extension at the end of the 14th century. This complex was destroyed in the 2nd World War and rebuilt only in recent years. Today it houses a hotel with a restaurant.
Bullets and cannon barrels were cast in the 14th century foundry. In different phases of the castle expansion, the Buttermilk Tower was built in 1330-40 and the Square Tower in 1310-1311. The construction of the representative middle castle started in 1309.
The central castle is accessed via a drawbridge and a system of gates. First you pass through a gate with a portcullis and over a weir bridge, then there is a system of four gates and a portcullis, which were supposed to block the access to the castle as well as protect the castle courtyard from attackers.
The buildings are grouped around a large rectangular courtyard. The courtyard leads to the Grand Master's Palace, a representative building in the form of a tower with the Great Remter. In front of the Remter there is a staircase, so that the Grand Masters could go directly from their chambers to this hall. Here banquets were held for knights who had taken part in the campaigns against the pagans. On the first floor there is the chapter house and rooms that were used as chanceries.
In the Middle Ages, in the small courtyard in front of the Great Remter, there were entrances to the most important rooms of the representative complex: St. Catherine's Chapel, the Grand Master's chambers and the main entrance to the Great Remter.
After the renovation, the palace rooms can be admired again, because especially the Summer and Winter Remter in the Gothic style with large rectangular windows and magnificent vaulting were considered the most beautiful ceremonial rooms in all of Europe at the end of the 14th century. The renovation works were long and costly.
In the north wing were the living and working rooms for the grand commander, as well as a hospital and old people's home for the knights. Today the working rooms for the castle museum are located here. In the western part there was the dining room, kitchen and pantry. In some of the halls there are collections of utilitarian art from the Polish period. On the first floor there were, among others, a bathhouse and sickrooms.
The east wing was used as a guest room wing in the Middle Ages, there were large and small guest rooms and a guest chapel. In the eastern wing there is the halberd hall. Exhibits and items from amber collections are displayed here, as well as items made of 17th and 18th century amber from Gdansk and Königsberg workshops. There are also collections of porcelain, period furniture and weapons.
in the southern part, on 2 floors, there are exhibitions of military objects, including medieval armor and swords. In one room you can see a modern collection of weapons. Inlaid firearms - duelling pistols and hunting rifles - are displayed in showcases.
To the south of the Middle Castle is the High Castle, connected by two oak bridges. The entrance gate to the High Castle is the oldest in the whole castle. The quadrangular courtyard is surrounded by two-story Gothic cloisters, from here doors lead to almost all rooms in this part of the fortress. In the center of the courtyard there is a fountain.
The square four-winged high castle is the oldest part of the castle. On the first floor there are economic rooms. In the west wing you can see huge oak elements for the windmill drive. In front of the entrance to the kitchen are typical millstones for grinding pearl barley. The kitchen and bakery are located in the west wing. There is an elevator here for transporting food directly to the dining room. Next to the stove and flue you can see an exhibition of historical kitchen utensils and crockery.
On the upper floor were the most important rooms for the convent and religious state - the Chapter House, St. Mary's Church and the Great Remter. In the latter, up to 400 guests could be entertained, it was one of the largest halls in Europe at that time.
In the Chapter House on the 1st floor the Grand Masters were elected and all important decisions were made. On the walls there are benches for the participants of these meetings.
The dormitories - dormitories of the knights - were located in the south and east wings. A long corridor leads to the dansker - toilet facility of the castle built above the Nogat River in a tower above running water. In earlier times, the water flowing underneath here flushed all sewage into the Nogat. In the south and east wings there are more dormitories and an exhibition of medieval exhibits - the most precious the altar from 1504 - from the destroyed castle church,
Further upstairs is the remter with a cross-ribbed vault on seven pillars and large ogival windows. Worth seeing is the medieval tiled floor with various motifs, the chimney frieze and the painting "The Last Supper". Another large room is the convent hall.
On the second floor there is the convent room (dining and meeting room). On the first floor you can reach the "Golden Gate", a ceramic portal from the end of the 13th century, which leads to St. Mary's Church. This church was renovated only in the last few years. The choir stalls and the wooden high altar are parts from the Middle Ages.
Before leaving the north wing, we enjoy the beautiful view of the Great Werder and the Nogat River from the tower. We come to the St. Anne's burial chapel, where the Grand Masters were buried.
The east terrace used to serve as a cemetery for the friars. On the south terrace the Grand Masters had their resting place and on the west terrace the friars. A spiral staircase leads from the high castle to the bed of the dry moat. The Pfaffenturm was once the oldest Dansker and later living quarters for the priests who served in the castle church. The east and west terraces were once cemeteries for the friars, and the south terrace was a resting place for the Grand Masters.
We left the castle through the Nikolaus Gate and admired once again the facade of the Grand Master's Palace made of stones and bricks. A pedestrian bridge leads over the Nogat River.
After these overwhelming impressions we sat down for the first time in the garden of the small restaurant on the north side and had a drink before we continue our journey to Gdansk.
Actually, there is no way to describe the magnificent Marienburg - you have to see it

2023.05.12 17:05 By_Crom80 Grass seed for central MN very shady with dogs

Hi - Been at our new house a few years, and the backyard keeps getting worse. Last year we over-seeded and fertilized and came in great but by the end of summer it mostly was back to square one.
The area in question is very very shady. I plan to plug aerate this year and fertilize, but I think part of my problem last year was grass seed. I picked up some shade mix at Home Depot, but wondering if others here have recommendations for better shade mix seed. We have dogs that also do a number on the lawn, and we'll keep them off this area while we work on it. Basically looking for a very hardy shade seed for mid-upper MN climate. TIA!
