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.
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.
I have made a few huge updates today to the website. Besides the tweaking of the overall look, I have assimilated my Network Blog postings onto the new Jekyll blog and will post about both on here. I brought most of the posts from the former site here - but I did do some “Spring Cleaning” by removing ones that were time-related (webchats and so forth) and kept the old URL if possible.
This is my summary posting of my May 2014 fitness activities. Most of my workouts and tracking is available on the main page of this website under the Fitness Log tab. This contains my Walk/Jogging activities.
For the month of May, I tracked that I walked or jogged approximately 30 miles in monitored activities (i.e., I did a planned walking/jogging workout; this does not include the incidental walking that I do during the day).
No MP3’s are available for this concert. I didn’t release the hold button for the first part of the concert and the second half was ruined by the sounds of the fountain. (Well, I could post them, but there would be a very loud water noise throughout the entire concert.) I don’t think there was anywhere else where I could have put the recorder to avoid it. Sorry guys.
I’m in need of finding an Accountability Partner for multiple things (one person could satisify both needs). I need someone to kick my butt to help me keep down on the fitness path - someone who won’t take my excuses when I hurt too much or just don’t want to do the things that I need to do. I promise I’ll provide the same support to my accountability partner.
The second need is keeping more with the traditional role of the Accountability Partner.
(includes updates from May 25, 2014 - JER)
I’ve gotten this website to a functional level, so I guess it is time to do an update on what is going on in my life right now. It’s been a busy time, but I’ve been enjoying myself working on some interesting projects at work. Life is different in the non-engineering world and I think it would have been better if I had changed a few years earlier than I did.
This will be a sticky post that I will update as I change things on the site.
As of May 12, 2014, I have finished the following:
Imported all of the old postings from Wordpress and migrated them to the new system. Implemented Blog Roll. Got MediaElements.JS to finally cooperate. Photo Galleries online. Set up GDrive CDN Work to be done:
Finish Templating (Author) Twitter Card Open Graph Collections This has been a fun project.
I played in the orchestra on this one (Tuba).. The recording is from the 10:45 AM service. I’m sorry about some of the ambient noises (talking, coughing, etc), but this recording is taken from the room and not the internet stream which may be missing a few instruments. For those with kids, the Kid’s choir sang the last three songs.
Please note that Jeff Owen has posted the official video of the concert on the church website (and linked below).
