Last week I wrote a blog about CIPAC endorsing a friend of mine Chris Harrison which also included Chris Riley. Below you will find a commercial that was released this week with Chris Riley, currently seeking his 3rd term on the Decatur Park Board, and Chris Harrison. Next Tuesday on April 9th is the election for Macon County which will chart the course of our community. In order for our election process to work it is important that everyone gets out and votes. Quality Home Locator rents homes in Decatur, IL and I feel our parks are a great asset to the community.
Bradshaw Consulting, Inc. and Hostexa have announced last month that February was chosen for a month of system wide upgrades. Bradshaw Consulting has been working on an upgrade to its Billing system and Hostexa has performed hardware upgrades on the majority of its machines. I’m very proud of my entire staff as these upgrades were perform with little to no interruption in services. It seems the biggest issue affecting the customers related to passwords. Security measures on the machines were enhanced and this left some user accounts unable to login until a password reset was performed.

I have been so busy the last few months with Quality Home Locator that I have not been able to update my blog on some of the cool things happening at a few of my companies. The American Garage is wrapping up production on Season 1 and we have started to make some changes to the layout of the website. Stephen brought up a great suggestion that we allow for more content on the website throughout the season. There has been a great deal of discussion on forums about the project and fans of the show wanted to see more content. The latest blog, fabricating the Throttle Linkage, was posted just a few days ago. We have added a section for outtakes, field trips, and TAG minutes. A TAG minutes is very short clip centered around content suggestion. While on a forum last year, a user asked for Stephen to upload a video dealing with struts.
While I was visiting “The shark Lady” at an event for The World Aquarium, I was introduced to Natalia Pechman of Duet West East Unity. Natalia is a Russian immigrant who came to the United States in 2006 and has used her experiences to ease the process of moving to another country for others from Eastern Europe. Julia Sakharova, an accomplished violinist of the internationally acclaimed Arianna Quartet, exemplifies the type of person Natalia wishes to aid. Julia came here with her parents a few years back to further her education. Now engaged, she is a professor at UMSL as well as a violinist. I look forward to seeing her performance in March at the Touhill Performing Arts Center in Saint Louis, MO.
The World Aquarium is offering an amazing deal starting today and continuing until the 9th of January! My whole family has been on this tour and loved it. Our children range in age from 7 to 19 and they all found it interesting. More information can be found about the tour on their website. The Shark up close tour is amazing and highly recommended. For Twenty Five dollars you can also take the Discovery Adventure Tour for two. The link, which takes you to Today’s Deals, can be found below.
One of my families favorite parts of the tour was the sting rays. I don’t think I have honestly seen sting rays this size in real life. The tour starts off with us being allowed to cut up the fish we were going to use as feed and all of us wondered if the pieces were going to be to large. My kids have seen the sting rays at the St Louis Zoo and we all wondered if they were too big. You should have seen the look on their faces when those sting rays jump up to get the food, they were huge! You get to put the food right into their mouths! We also enjoyed getting to feed various other fish throughout the aquarium. Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. He took the time to answer all of our questions and to take as much time as we liked at each exhibit. The World Aquarium tour would be a wonderful teaching tool for homeschoolers as well as anyone interested in a veterinary field or for a unique date idea! Please check out this deal before it is gone. This is one of St. Louis’s many hidden gems!
I would say Andrew Brown has done it! It has only been a few months since his website launched and his debut in Julius Caesar at ENO is coming to a close. I’m not surprised at the reviews he has been getting like the one posted at Classical Source.
“Andrew Craig Brown only got to sing one of Achillas’s arias, which was our loss, because both he and his voice made quite an impact”
Shortly after his debut as Achilla in Julius Caesar ENO signed Andrew on as Colline in La Boheme! Congratulations Andrew!
