Sorry for the small interruption in posts. As it turns out, things have been interesting. There will some changes to blog content, when and how it is posted. The small gap in posts is in part due to the fact that I’m trying to improve the quality of posts, as such, I want to re-read and edit them after giving ample time to let them “cool.” In addition, I’m also going to try to post more consistently.
Some of the delay in posting was also caused by work on Stones Throw CMS (the CMS for Giant Slayer Development), as I have done some basic updates for the bible study module, will be adding recurring events and improving the administration side of the photo gallery. In addition, my wife went to a ladies retreat with church, and so I spent some quality time with my daughter. On that note, I’ll also be posting some thoughts on the “Strong Fathers, Strong Daughters,” in the near future.
One of my dearest friends has also been in town recently, and had the pleasure of spending some time with him. Lots of Custard was consumed, as they don’t have custard in Afghanistan or in Arizona. He has recently returned to the United States after being stationed in Afghanistan for the past year, but he is now home in Arizona. No matter what your thoughts are about the politics of the war are, please take time to remember that we have brave men and women putting their lives at risk on a daily basis. My friend, for instance, was on a demolitions team finding and disarming Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs) so that soldiers and civilians alike would not be harmed. There are many soldiers in Iraq and Afganastan today doing the same thing.
On a completely different note, I’ve been keeping an eye on the stats for the sheet music, midi and mp3 of the piano track(s) for the Come and Join the Chorus project, I know there are some people who are likely working on videos for the project. Our church’s choir will be doing a video sometime this summer, and I know a few people personally who have said they would join the chorus by posting YouTube Videos. So, expect to see me commenting about some of the submissions as they come in.
