Prayers for Samantha

Samantha Buechele, a long time family friend, was recently hospitalized for congestive heart failure and she awaits a new heart. Please think of her and her family and give your prayers as they face this challenge. Samantha is very young, so I know she will be strong enough to accept a new heart. Also, remember to be an organ donor, and put that little sticker on your license.

Guide to Orchestra

The members of the orchestra are divided into four sections. These are woodwinds, the strings, the brass, and the percussion. There's also someone standing in front of all these other folks playing no instrument at all. This would be the conductor. It is generally required that the conductor is required to make musical decisions and to hold all of the instruments together in a cohesive interpretation of any given work. Not so. Rather, the conductor is necessary because the four groups would rather eat Velveeta than have anything to do with someone from another section. And, as we know, musicians are quite serious about their food.
