It would be interesting to find out how many men still hand out al capone cigars at weddings. My husband did it at ours almost 12 years ago. And at the time, I hadn’t heard of any other grooms doing this at any of my friends weddings. Of course, that’s hardly a sufficient sample size to tell one way or the other. I was told that this has been a traditional practice in some parts in the past. Maybe it’s similar to the tradition of handing out cigars when a baby has arrived. But I can’t be sure of either.
I used to play in the high school band and so I’m very familiar with the portable music stand that was almost constantly in front of us while we played on. It was a black stand not unlike most stands that you’ll find in music stores worldwide. It was adjustable of course so that almost any height of person could read from it, and so that it could be used standing or sitting.
It makes me nostalgic for those days of playing beside my classmates at musical recitals or just sitting in class trying to get through Rachmaninoff. Those were the days.
I do have a page in Facebook about God’s word highlighting inspirational sayings, positive quotes with spiritual outlook. It’s also about God’s creation in photography!
“For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things He planned for us long ago.” – Ephesians 2:10
We’re presently living in a condominium style residence that looks after things like the outdoor landscaping and external house items – like the roof. Another thing that the condominium agreement includes are the windows. And we’ve been waiting to hear whether they are going to soon replace our aging windows. We heard about a year ago that they were considering replacing all of the windows in our neighbourhood.
Now, obviously, since they’re making it their business, we won’t have to concern ourselves with finding the actual replacement windows. But if I were the condo people I’d be seriously considering going with charlottesville windows for our present needs. But I’m not. But I can always put in a recommendation.
