Video Frealane Performing Never Too Late

 

 

Neil and Melissa of World Winder travel great distances for music.  We’ve seen local bands in Ecuador, national and international acts in Argentina, and even made a musical pilgrimage to Nashville, Tennessee.

But since we were born and raised in New York, we enjoy coming back to catch live shows.  This video features Frealane a band based in NYC.  The song is called “Never Too Late”.  For band info check www.Frealane.com.

 

 

Video The Mighty SPECTRUM Band

It is hard to believe that Melissa and I have been back from our world travels for nearly eight months.  Since returning from our exploration of South America and Europe, we haven’t slowed down much.

After returning to New York we sought business advice from banking professionals including Michael Saccardo of Chase.  Michael made us feel comfortable about our decision to go into business for ourselves.  Our background is in education, so changing our mindset from teaching to business is integral for our success.

Besides dishing solid  financial advice, Michael also gave us a tip on a local group called The Mighty SPECTRUM Band.  A few months later,  he invited us to our first Rockland Boulders game at Provident Bank Park.  After the game the staff allows fans to stay at the Bridge Bar and that is where the band was jamming.

Today’s video features a road side attraction in West Texas.  Is Cadillac Ranch an eyesore or an art project?  The song is by a band called El Atolón de Funafuti from Argentina.  Check out their website www.elatolon.com.ar

VIDEO AWOL and Her Monster Jam

We have traveled with our friend AWOL from Suburbia Roller Derby a couple of times.  We traveled to Muir Woods in California, rode bikes around ancient ruins in Thailand, and floated down river together in Laos.

But once you get AWOL on the floor at a roller derby bout in Yonkers, all pleasantries are abandoned.  She is likely to knock you onto your tailbone or to fly around you half a dozen times like you’re standing stationary.  On this video AWOL received perfect blocking and one teammate was kind enough to smash an opposing player to the ground near the end of the jam.

The ladies are skating this Saturday, June 15 at EJ Murray Memorial in Yonkers, NY.

AWOL cleans up well for her derby bouts.

How to Rock Quarry with AmeriCorps

Rockstairs Hike, Great Smokies

 

 

“Rock-bar check.  Gloves check.  Pick-matic check.  Once you have these tools along with a good attitude, you’re ready to rock quarry.”- This is an opening line written by a Rockland County Americorps service member during a blogging activity at a Build Your Future workshop.

Yesterday World Winder held a 4-hour training session with over 30 young adults in Stony Point, New York.  The members are part of the Rockland Environmental Corps.   For more information check out http://rocklandgov.com/departments/youth-bureau/rockland-county-americorps/.
