Just about ready to head to Japan to visit CJ. We’ll be flying into Tokyo Narita airport and staying in Yokosuka for a little over a week. We’ll get to check out CJ’s ship on Family Day and have several days afterwards to see the sights. I may not be able to blog or post photos until we get back unless we can do it from CJ’s laptop. But I’ll definitely post them and all our adventures.
I shipped my new march to the band in Wisconsin today. I finally chose the title “Heartland Journey” after getting feedback from many friends and family, only to have my benefactors reject it. The preferred “The Midwesterner” which is a pretty good title as well. Click here to listen to a computerized playback. This playback uses the Garritan Concert and Marching Band sample library, which is amazing especially considering its very reasonable price. I’m a huge fan of their products. More on this later.
