    I like to watch Artur Gachinski's 2011 Worlds LP. Just to remember that that is the skater I fell in love with, and that is the skater I know he can be again - playful, free, fun, charismatic, clean and solid and lovely.

    This set, along with Lyra Angelica 1998 Nationals, would be what I would watch

    Besides Michelle's Lyra Angelica, one that has consoled me many times is her East of Eden, the 1998 version.

    This is a long sequence from Stars on Ice with Roca/Sur and Meno/Sand starting it out and Gordeyeva/Kulik finishing it up:

    So sorry for your loss Skateluvr. Here is another Janet Lynn program that never fails to move me with the ethereal quality of her skating.

    I love janet, was there ever a better free skater? When I think of ladies in her caliber I get two names first Yuka Sato as pro and MK. Her skating is so pure. If skating has a future saint is is janet. Doris, one tech help. I've been watching buts when I can, but all of a sudden the screens on youtube don't allow me to do full screen, so I watch the little size. Its aggravating. Sometimes it goes to full, others not. I want to see the skating full size. I have a macbookpro that is wasted on me. Is this sounding like the synaptic keypad?

    Thank you Olympia. skateluvr thanks, iam so glad you are well now. sather my gosh what a wonderful thing you were able to do. Such happy news. My dad has gone through 8 chemos which was his course of treatment. We're hoping and praying his scan will be clear or show great improvement.

    I actually hadn't watched Janet before, really such a beautiful skater.

    I'm not sure that this works on Macs, but it does on PCs. There have been some changes on youtube lately that don't work well. Another is what has happened to the ability to get an automatic bookmark for a time internal to the video if there is an advertisment. A lot of the trouble, in fact, seems to be related to Google wanting to be sure you get your ads-you see fewer of them in full screen.


    This works on my PC.
    When you can't get the full screen, try minimizing the page with the small screen on it. The full screen is running behind it.

    My dad is also going through chemo. We are nearing six months. If his next scan (in two weeks) shows progress (the last one did) he will get a break before starting a second round of treatment.

    It is so difficult to watch your parent go through this. Prayers and hugs for you and your whole family.
