Howdy Folks,
  It's been a while since I did this.   I know it's late notice, but for my fellow space cadets, the Star Nations group will not be meeting tonite, hope see y'all next month.  Last month our buddy Joe brought his high end binoculars for some star gazing afterwards.  We just happen to be treated to a fly by of the space station & several possible satillites, but with the binoculars we were able to see Jupiter & 4 of her moons, along with a great view of Saturn, several moons & a great view of the rings.
  The studio remains available for concerts, rehersals & events if anyone has a proposition I'm open to suggestions.  Our last show with  Patti Rothberg was a blast .  She was lovely to work with &  put on a great show singing solo, playing guitar & our new piano too.  Several peeps from Big Sister showed up & jammed with her also.  The fun part was the opportunity to discuss the return of Big Sister to the Rosendale St Fest & them backing Patti  to close out Saturday night at this years Fest.  Follow the link below & you'll be blown away by this years amazing talent from all over the Hudson Valley.   Please volunteer for the fest if you can it takes a huge effort to pull this off.  Many of the folks involved are aging out of the system & we're in desperate need of some new, young blood to carry on the tradition!
  The SilverZano gang is going strong with Sonny moving in with his lovely girlfriend Laura & enjoying his new job teaching for Abiomed.  Sarah completed her CNA certification finding new work opportunities.  Jiro just returned from another trip to Italy, where Alice (the Italian GF, pronounced: A-lee-che) took him on a tour to visit his Great Grandfathers home town, discovering Granpa Joes' brother Angelos' side of the Marzano family tree.  They welcomed him with open arms & brought him to Pina Marzanos B'day party where he meet numerous 4th cousins, once, twice & thrice removed. They were so thrilled to meet him, because they had been looking for us for a long time & had given up a few years back.  The old folks spoke of my grandfathers last visit home in which they had a huge celebration feast roasting a whole goat for the occasion.  Very thrilling indeed.  Julia had a great year at SUNY New Paltz finally focusing on her major, music.  She did jazz vocals with Teri Roiger & jazz piano with Vinnie Martucci (her advisor!) & continues to expand her horizons in all directions.  We hit a real milestone with Eli graduating KHS marking the end of an era for us.  He graduated Cum Laude with a 89.5 average, excelled in the New Visions, Music Production/Audio Engineering program & continues to be passionate about drumming professionally.  It has been such a pleasure to listen to him rehearsing regularly in the studio with his "jazz combo".  NSPT continues to thrive, but of course it's quite a struggle to keep on top of the constantly morphing healthcare industrial complex.  I must say for all the bad mouthing of "Obamacare" or ACA, it's still a step in the right direction.  Many of our patients are benefiting & according to our own research in providing health insurance for our employees & ourselves, we should be able to take a big bite out of our health insurance bill, with even better coverage.
   Keep Lookin' Up! Peace & Love Prevails:)><3~*jimbo
