The Praise Symphony Orchestra

On Sunday evening, The Praise Symphony Orchestra came down from Orange County to do a performance at Hillside Community Church. Only about two-thirds of this chamber orchestra was able to come on this trip, which put their number at around thirty-five people.

Not only was I able to get a front row seat, I got the whole front pew all to myself. Which was exceedingly useful for taking pictures, videos, and a number of audio clips as well.

The orchestra happens to be celebrating their 30th anniversary this month. There are only two or three people left from the original group, but the ranks have clearly been swelled with replacements along the way. In fact, one of the cellists is only twelve years old!

The only thing that topped the quality of the music was the price. The concert was totally Free. Plans are already under way for a return visit next year. All I can say is give me a date to reserve.

I Love Free Food

I couldn't let both a free lunch, and a good photo go by without posting (and besides that, it's been over a month since I last did anything on this blog. And I find that not only annoying, but also dull, so I took just a few minutes to write-and-rotate [the picture that is] -and-post.)

Anyway, The "New Person" at work (one of two actually) has brought food in to share several times recently. And on Tuesday, she brought the sandwiches to the right.

Good stuff.
