The local celebration of an Italian tradition features rides, music and food, but it came under scrutiny last year when undercover police cited bartenders at the festival for serving alcohol to minors.

The Bells Of San Juan Capistrano – LA GOLONDRINA

* From my collection with more than 800 versions of “La Golondrina” , instrumentals and songs, world-wide, I am posting here one interesting and rare version with Old Mission Bells – San Juan Capistrano. *
-A 25 Note Maas-Rowe Vibrachime and Old Mission Bell”

Nestled in the hills of Southern California is the beautiful Mission San Juan Capistrano called “The Jewel of the Missions”. Here on November 1, 1776 Fra Junipero Serra first celebrated Mass on a hastily constructed altar, believed to have been in the same spot where the present Mission Church now stands.

A great stone Church which was considered the finest of all California Mission structures was started in February of 1796 and completed nine years later. Four bells which hung in the tower of this Church now hang in the “Campanario” or bell wall at the Mission.

The bells crashed to the ground when the great stone Church was destroyed by the earthquake of 1812. All the bells except one are cracked to-day, either from the fall or from years of use. The only bell which is not cracked is the bell named “San Antonio”, the second smallest of the group. This is the bell used for weddings in the Mission Church, and its tones are well-known to the villagers of San Juan Capistrano; as couples in ever increasing numbers come from near and far to be married in this most romantic spot in California. San Antonio, the happiness bell, cast in 1804, is heard at the end of this record. The other three bells, though cracked are still used to-day. The two largest bells are used to ring the Angelus and for Mass calls. The largest bell, named St. Vincente, was cast in 1776, and is estimated to weigh about 800 pounds. This bell is known as the memorial bell of the Mission since it has an inscription on it commemorating two resident priests of the Mission, Father F. Fuster and Father San Juan Santiago.

The second largest bell was cast in 1796, and is the only bell in the group to carry the name of the bell founder, Ruelas. The workmanship and lettering on the bells indicate that all four of them were cast in the same foundry.

In 1952 a modern 25-bell Vibrachime electronic carillon was installed in the mission. The Vibrachime carillon is equipped with an automatic player which plays both hymns and secular melodies that have long been favorites at the Mission. Eleven of these selections have been recorded here.

The Mass-Rowe Vibramachine uses accurately tuned metal rods to generate the bell tones. These rods are struck by small electrically actuated clappers, their tones are amplified and sound through special sound projectors concealed near the old bell wall. The effect is so realistic few visitors realize the beautiful carillon music does not originate from the old Mission bells until it becomes apparent that the four bells in the Campanario could not possibly cover the range of the music being played on the 25-bell electronic carillon.

The hymns and melodies were arranged for carillon by Paul D. Peery and Del Roper, staff carillonneurs of Maas-Rowe Carillons.

Since this record will find use on automatic tower music systems, which in many churches serve as a substitute for a carillon, tone quality and reliability of operation were given primary consideration in the cutting of the record.

The space on the rim of the record, where the needle is dropped by automatic mechanisms, is wider than on the usual record. That insures proper starting even though the turntable mechanism is not in perfect adjustment.

The universal groove is somewhat deeper than the usual micro-groove. It should be played with a micro-groove needle, but can be played with any good standard needle. Wide groove spacing is used to prevent breakthrough and to eliminate any possibility of echo. The original tape was recorded by Mr. J. W. Klein of Maas-Rowe Carillons, who supervised the installation of the Vibrachime carillon at Mission San Juan Capistrano.
* So, listen here this old mission bells’ version of “La Golondrina” of Narciso Serradell Sevilla. Enjoy! *

San Antonio Food Bank Aquaponics Garden – Service for the Community

Early 2015 Michael Freckleton M.D. a radiologist, and also the San Antonio, Texas West Stake, Stake President, was able to attend a presentation of an aquaponics system at a gardening exposition. With being to participate in medical humanitarian work around the world Michael Freckleton M.D. wondered if this could be the answer to a solution to help bring protein and calories in imbalanced diets that will cause medical problems with lifelong consequences.

Michael Freckleton was familiar with the excellent work that was being done by the San Antonio Food Bank in feeding needy people throughout south central Texas. With the support of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter day Saints, Michael Freckleton approached the San Antonio Food bank and offered if they provide the land, they would build a prototype aquaponics systems with the following objectives:

– “Provide a working aquaponics system that would grow plants and fish for use by the food bank.

– Allow the San Antonio, Texas West Stake with hands- on experience with system development, that they might be able to create designs that would be appropriate for use in needy areas, including the developing world.

– Create a beautiful garden for the food bank, where people be able to come and imagine a home-based system in their own back yard.”

Michael Freckleton has referred this is as an “imaginarium” where people could envision what they could do to provide for their own needs.

In the fall of 2016, they began the design of the system and they received approximately a hundred people helping in labor. They also had help in design, and materials from good people who supported their goals. Many provided knowledge and information to help the process. Although the process took longer than expected to be complete by late spring of 2017 the system was ready to “cycle.”

“Cycle is a the process in wherein the water runs from the fish tank into the grow beds and then back again, allowing a culture of naturally occurring bacteria to grow in the beds and maturing the water so that it would be suitable for the fish.”

In the early summer of 2017 over 500 tilapia were introduced and herbs planted in the grow beds. The process will take several months for the grow beds to support a broader variety of pants. In the fall of 2017, winter crops will be introduced. The fish will take nine to twelve months to be able harvest. Tilapia fish are easy to breed in captivity and the hope is to have a renewable source of fish into the future.

San Francisco – Scott McKenzie

“San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Flowers in Your Hair)” is a song, written by John Phillips of The Mamas & the Papas, and sung by Scott McKenzie. It was written and released in June 1967 to promote the Monterey Pop Festival.

McKenzie’s song became an instant hit. The lyrics tell the listeners, “If you’re going to San Francisco, be sure to wear some flowers in your hair”. Due to the difference between the lyrics and the actual title, the title is often quoted as “San Francisco (Be Sure to Wear Some Flowers in Your Hair)”. “San Francisco” reached number four on the Billboard Hot 100 in the United States, and was number one in the United Kingdom and most of Europe. The single is purported to have sold over 5 million copies worldwide. The song is credited with bringing thousands of young people to San Francisco, California during the late 1960s.[citation needed]

In Central Europe, young people adopted “San Francisco” as an anthem for freedom, and it was widely played during Czechoslovakia’s 1968 Prague Spring uprising against Soviet rule.[citation needed]

The song has been featured in several films, including Frantic, The Rock and Forrest Gump (Wikipedia).
