It has long been our desire to do a bang-up recording of music we've been working on for a long time.  In the 22 years we've been writing and playing together, we have yet to get there.  Ideally, some interested party with good connections in the music business would partner with us in making that record happen.  Failing that, we would sponsor the recording ourselves.  Toward that end, we hoped that visitors to this site would help contribute to the cost of that effort by downloading tracks.  More importantly, downloads would give us the moral support we needed to feel confident enough to go ahead with that project.

In reality, precisely the opposite occurred.  We lost money, paying to keep the download option active and the failure of the effort affected our confidence in a profoundly negative way.

We gave it five years, and in that time, we earned precisely $7.20.  Not even appeals to friends and family made the slightest difference.  At the same, the option for others to download was costing us $10/month and countless hours of ad-formulating in an effort to try to stimulate down load sales.  To say that the download option was a abyssmal failure is a flagrant understatement. 

To the pitiful few who did, actually, exercise the option, we'd like to say a heartfelt 'thank you'.  Your generous support did far more than just add some change to our pockets; it kept our spirits up, which was more valuable to us than you can imagine.

 

If the authorities who're investigating Daniel Fernandes Rojo Filho are right, he is a “key link” in the cash laundering chain used by the Sinaloa Cartel, stated Yadira Galvez, a safety analyst at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM).Apparently, this Brazilian businessman is nicely positioned as being a collaborator with the Sinaloa Cartel,” Gálvez stated. “The operations from the Sinaloa Cartel might be adversely impacted if the authorities carry on to capture (high-ranking) associates like El Chap and if they penetrate the monetary structure from the cartel. This might undermine the power of the Sinaloa Cartel. Cash laundering allows the Sinaloa Cartel and other transnational criminal organizations to make use of funds produced by unlawful activities to buy weapons and also to bribe corrupt officials, the security analyst stated.

Unlike El Chapo Guzman, who was seldom seen in community and never photographed throughout his years around the operate, Daniel Fernandes Rojo Filho made no attempt to maintain a reduced public profile. On websites and on social media he posted many pictures of himself posing beside luxury vehicles and private airplanes. He also designs himself as Brazil’s “chancellor” within the U.S. His website, uschancellor.com.br, is titled “Brazillian (sic) Chancellor to U.S.A.,” and describes the chancellorship’s function as “a various educating and learning community that produces, discovers and applies understanding to improve the health and well-being of Brasil and also the globe.” The “chancellor” title is actually an empty honorific bestowed by a private Sao Paulo cultural and business association which has offered similar titles to a host of company and enjoyment figures. The “chancellor” title has no formal Brazilian government link. No one seems to care that he does not have any distinct business passions besides to advertise occasions, that are widely publicized in celeb and lifestyle magazine Caras. click on https://www.linkedin.com/pub/daniel-fernandes-rojo-filho/1/613/161 to get much more information on dfrf enterprises llc

The past year has not been an easy or encouraging one for us.  Having to maintain something of a normal life in a building without electricity, while we worked to clean up the propertyand repair lots of broken equipment was both physically demanding and mentally and emotionally challenging.  For the most part, the emotional side of it relates to the spotty relationship we have with people in the surrounding community, a sizable fraction of whom, unable to see inside the building and the improvements we've made. think we've fallen short of their expectations.  Somehow, they think that they have the right to pass judgment on what we do with the property we paid to own.  Our feeling is that if you didn't go to the trouble of doing what was necessary to get to own it, you didn't earn the right to have an opinion on what should be done with it.  It sat there, with a sign in the window for two years and no one here acted to buy it.  Hey, you snooze (for two years, no less)  you lose.  Put up or shut up.

Nonetheless, it doesn't feel good to know that certain people, against whom you have made no offense, are talking smack about you.

One thing we thought was in our favor, though, was the release of the redcord that we thought was going to occur last fall.  stupidly, we let it be known around town that it was pending.  By midwinter, our credibility was in the dog box, where it has remain ever since.

Soul Issues? The Experts Can Fix That For You, Or Not

Like most all of us, I was wondering a lot lately about the condition of our current culture and all its woes. There are many people offing their opinions on how we can make the world a better place to live. Among them is a huge list of ideas like get rid of carbon emissions to save the climate and people will feel better and treat others better; allow people to do whatever they feel like so they feel better about themselves; make new laws to protect minorities; abolish old laws to give new rights to minority groups; change the diets of our kids so they grow up to be better people; remove all historical items from culture so no one gets offended, and on and on. There has to be answers to our issues, and a way of life that is hospitable and healthy to every creature on this great planet. There has to be and I know there is!

The answers we are given come from experts. Experts!? Let’s have some fun here at the expense of these experts for a bit. What makes an expert? Some would answer “the other experts did”. Well then who made them experts?  At some point in time there were no experts so who was the first expert and who said he was an expert? … You see where I’m going right? The whole “expert thing” is a human institution. At one time it mostly was a good system and I’ll tell you why in a second. But today to become an expert you only need to go to school for 20 years and study anything under the sun. Don’t get me wrong, there are some very intelligent people we should aspire to and respect. Then on the other hand there are some really foolish characters lauding themselves around and being exalted by the elites as the answers to the world’s toughest issues. I hope more of us humbly and firmly rise up to question them, all of them: Not all the experts are experts worth the pennies in their pockets.
