This post is an update to see where I’ve been, what I am doing, and where I should be going with updates added now as I have progressed through the annals of my life. Goals from 2014 Respect my body.

New Year New Start - Blog Relaunch

This posting launches the new and improved “Jeffreys Ruminations”. The previous blog was kept offline for so long because I was no longer able to generate new pages in Jekyll (the static site generator on the old site). I have since rewritten the entire site from scratch complete with my own new theme based on Bootstrap 3 for the Hugo Static Site Generator program. This has been a fun project and a learning experience for both HTML5/CSS3 and Hugo. Read More


This is a “different” type of music posting. On December 7, 2014, the Comal Community Band performed it’s annual Christmas Concert at Stage Theatre in Bulverde, TX.. However, since this is an open house event, it gets pretty loud. So my normal recordings do not actually work for this event. However, I was testing out the camera in my phone while on stage and took some videos of 5 songs from the Christmas half of the presentation (there are two parts - the first is normal non-Christmas music, then an intermission, then a Christmas music finale).

On October 18, 2014, I participated in the 51st Annual Longhorn Alumni Band Reunion at the Texas vs Iowa State. This was the first time I have participated in the last 10 years (I used to always do it from 1995-2002, but dropped out afterwards). This completes one item from my Ultimate Quest List for 2014-2015 (see The Road Ahead for more information on the Ultimate Quest). For this event, I decided to do a couple of videos. Read More

This is the first of two posts that I hope will chronicle my experiences at the most awesome event that I attended between September 18-21, 2014 at a camp nestled in the mountains of northern Georgia. This inaugural event was held by Steve Kamb and the crew at the website NerdFitness plus some awesome teachers who educated and motivated us to be the best person physically and mentally that we can be.

This is the music from the Independence Day celebration in New Braunfels TX at the Bandstand in the Main Plaza. The music selection includes a plethora of marches and patriotic songs. As this was an outoor performance, you will hear ambient sounds from the parade while listening to the music. The music is a bit woodwind heavy due to the placement of the recorder in an out-of-the-way space… The vocals were performed by CCB member Jacob Cantu. Read More

This is the music from the June 29, 2014 Concert held at Wesley Hall at the First United Methodist Church in New Braunfels. This was our pre-4th of July concert featuring patriotic music. This concert is given as a “thank-you” to church for allowing us to use their facilities after New Braunfels ISD shuts down for the holidays/summer. This concert is the last performance of this season with the full band. Read More
