Mike Snyder produces soothing tones and melodies to provide a relaxing atmosphere of sound and vibration for his individual clients and group meditations. Mike is able to channel music intuitively when working on an individual or playing for a group. He produces the “sound of the moment” so to speak as he will play music that directly reflects what is happening energetically in the current point in time. Most of his individual and group sessions start out with regular random piano notes played rapidly until the individual or group starts to get into a deeper state of relaxation, and consciousness.

Redemptorist preacher and reformer. He was born on December 26,1751, at Taswitz, Moravia, the ninth child of a butcher and his wife and was baptized John. His family name was originally Dvorak, but was changed to the German Hofbauer. He was apprenticed as a baker in his youth, and later became a hermit near Bruck, Austria. As part of his so-called Josephinist policies, Austrian Emperor Joseph II abolished hermitages, and Clement went to Vienna, where he and a friend, Peter Kunzmann, received permission from Bishop Chiaramonti of Tivoli, Italy, to live in a hermitage. Bishop Chiaramonti later became Pope Pius VII. After studying at the university of Vienna, Austria, and in Rome, Clement and another friend, Thaddeus HubI, entered the Redemptorist Order and were ordained in 1785. They were stationed in Vienna, but Emperor Joseph II closed religious foundations, so they were sent to Courtland. Peter Kunzmann joined Clement as a lay brother, and the three were sent to St. Benno's Church in Warsaw, Poland, to begin two decades of missionary labors. Clement preached, built orphanages and schools, and established a vast Redemptorist presence in the city. Napoleon suppressed all religious institutions, and Clement and the Redemptorists were imprisoned in 1808, each one then exiled to his own native land. Clement went to Vienna, where he became the chaplain of the Ursulines and pastor of the adjoining parish. He became known for his holiness and zeal. Clement died in Vienna on March 15. He was canonized in 1909.
St. Croix’s Carnival became an annual event in 1952 with the revival of old holiday traditions transformed into modern Festival. Dating back at least to the early-1800s enslaved Africans on St. Croix were allowed to celebrate Christmas & New Year’s Days. The celebrations on plantations included drumming, singing, & dancing.This month-long celebration incorporates modern-day celebrations with long-standing traditions for over 60 years.
It involved parading through the streets of town singing, dancing, & playing drums; often stopping door to door for rum & wine. Masquerading was popular during Christmas & other holidays including Easter & Whit Monday. These traditions continued into the early 1900s but saw some decline.
Social events kept music traditions & dances like the quadrille, lancers & bomboula alive. The Carnival festival collected traditions into one big event with a focus on the former holiday celebrations. The event has become more organized each year, incorporating additional events.
While most of the action happens in Frederiksted, events & venues span across St. Croix, with celebrations including nightly displays of talented bands & musicians, pageants for Carnival royalty & fairs that showcase local crafts, foods, & drinks.
The best is saved for last. J’ouvert, the Children’s Parade, & the famous Adult’s Parade are the last of the official festival events. The Parades are a beautiful display of Crucian culture with troupes dancing through the streets all-day long wearing beautifully hand crafted, vibrant, feathery costumes.
The St. Louis Blues coughed up a 3-1 lead in Game 6 and thus coughed up a 3-1 series lead against the Chicago Blackhawks.

Daniel Murphy hit an RBI single and Jayson Werth hit a three-run blast in the first as the Washington Nationals jumped out to an early 4-0 lead over Jaime Garcia and the St. Louis Cardinals. Nats' starter Joe Ross gave up just one run in six innings of work in the 6-1 win as Washington won the first series in St. Louis since all the way back in 2007. One more with the Cards tomorrow with Max Scherzer on the mound in Busch Stadium.
Washington Nationals' right-hander Max Scherzer returned to form and the Nats' bats came to life in the sixth and seventh innings against St. Louis Cardinals' starter Carlos Martinez as the Nationals swept the three-game set in Busch Stadium with a 6-1 win. It was the first sweep in the Nationals' franchise history (2005-present) and the first sweep in overall franchise history since the Montreal Expos swept the Cards thirty years again in 1986. 30 years? And Bryce Harper was hitless in the series... Nationals now 17-7.
