My VERY First VIDEO Blog!!!
The start of my new Video Series!!!!

Check out the video that I recorded on September 2014. Hopefully, you sill see perhaps a tiny difference????

Just For Fun…

I am showing you the SCRIPT I used for this 2 minute talk. Notice, EVERYTHING has to be put in or I will forget to do it. Enjoy!


Hi …I am Gordon Viggiano. 

I recorded my FIRST video on my WEBSITE in September 2000 and 14…and back THEN it was VERY difficult to talk.  Don’t believe me?  …watch this 2 minute video and let me know what YOU think.  Switch Angle  You will notice the glasses as you watch this. Switch Angle

I didn’t realize how much BETTER I got; I cringe when I see that recording of me… even now!

So this ….is my very first video …Blog.  This is VERY challenging for me.  I don’t know about you, but I am excited!!!

Started Out Slowly

I am starting out kind of slow; I’m not really teched out either.  I have my iPhone…a camera holder… and a ring lamp. 

And of course, I have my script. show script   That’s it!!!

On my script,you see the words I want to TRY to to communicate with you.  But in edition to that, you will see my notes …in  RED (use RED)… to show when I want to use still pictures, ….in PINK ( use PINK picture) to show what I was feeling at the time, …and in BOLD Face (show BOLD FACE) when I want to emphasize a word.  And of course, you will see me smiling…or my Serious look…or even Laughing


The big question: How long will in take me to get my video out to you?  Back in 2014, it took me a month of saying this speech over and over again before I put it out.  Even then….I wasn’t that good.  

In future Videos, I will talk about what I was going through at the time… and how that was effecting me during my recovery process.  Of course, I will offer some humor (Smile) to break it up.  

In the meantime, I going to be practicing talking my talk in front of a camera. I’ll tell you at the end how long it took me to rehearse before I release it to you.  Switch Angle   It took me ___. 

A nerve bypass??? You need to watch this!


John Dandin sent me this.  Thanks!…

Cool video, I know it’s slightly different than a stroke but I hope for people I know like Gordon Viggiano Malik Duncan and Christo Asimakopoulos who have great faith, daily work ethic on their day-to-day while remaining positive and hopeful of some type of recovery either naturally or through technology. I also know how big it would be for their loved ones Jill Krantz Viggiano HAMZA’S PRAYER’S as well because the reward for GV, Malik, and Christo would be their reward as well.

I was awesome…

Well ok…maybe not THAT awesome.

After hearing me speak, they we’re going to class.  I can’t wait to find out how it went.   If I just went by applause, I would give it an A-.  But, I am NOT the audience….as my wife says. So, we will see!

IMG_0557I spoke in front of 400 students and faculty today and they seemed “moved” by my story.  I was watching the audience as the video played and it was surprising.  Many of the attendees  brought their hand up to their mouths…. as if they were actually living the moment. I never watched the audience before, but I think I will going forward. It made me feel close to the members involved.  I will let you know how it goes.  After years of speaking, I think it is funny that I never watched the audience!

Side note: don’t I look old in the picture Jill took?

Time For Jill To Speak!

Jill had a busy week!

We showed up at AM Northwest, and completed the interview. Then we went to our first Painful Blessing presentation:IMG_0330 Courtyard at Mt. Tabor.  The group was fantastic and they gave us lots of tips. Jill listened to many all of them.

The second one was two days later at Durham & Bates. I was a little nervous and I don’t know why!  I arrived early so I could hook up the system.  The projector was mounted on the ceiling and I found the remote to turn it on. I felt good at that point (a mistake) and just had to the right input. I couldn’t do it.  Their IT person showed up and HE couldn’t do it either!  He asked me if I had it on a USB drive so he can put it in his computer.   I didn’t. We were running on MAC and I didn’t think it was necessary.  Jill was going to have to give her presentation… without any slides. Can she do this?   It’s only her second time. Won’t that mess her up?

When I deliver my speech, I can’t do it without having my presentation!  My presentation has still photos and video clips thoughout which tie the whole thing together.  Plus, I get thirsty; I have time to drink during the presentation while the video played.  How can I help her with this terrible situation?

She didn’t need any help. Effortlessly, she delivered her speech, with NO presentation… flawlessly.  She was absolutely amazing!

And yes, when I got home I put Jill’s presentation on a USB so we will be prepared next time.
