And this year we made to organize the dinner as well as New Year's Eve ball in Controguerra. After two days of preparation, the place was ready to accommodate the more than duecentrocinquanta appearances planned for this year.
The booking system "unique", managed by the protocol of the town, it was found successful and there were too many messes in the allocation of seats at the tables. To improve the collection of money instead, which this year was organized arrival of people. But since everyone was presented on time at 20.30, this has created a line of people waiting to checkout with consequent discomfort albeit short-lived. Maybe next year is to be managed by collecting advance fees or some other form of management.
The evening will, in addition to dinner, movies for boys, a band to enliven the evening as well as music entertainment since the group is just music seventies and you must also give the guests a bit 'of group dances, rock, pop and Bali from the room.
From gourmet hand a start is very good Italian cold cuts on which we all like crazy slingshot view the abundance of food and pass again by the waiters who then improvised, others are not, except those invited to dinner requisitioned for the event
Just enough time to draw breath for a moment and talk among friends gathered at the event and here come the many excellent cannelloni with tomato sauce. Again, the abundance of food is the host even if there is to say that, unlike last year, in late evening is a lot less stuff thrown outward sign that either we have guessed the number of servings or more people ate more.
Pending the other courses, began playing the band and soon I realize that something is wrong. Despite the cleverness of the music they make is, however, more suited to a concert at an event indoors, and especially not exactly lend itself to a masked ball at the end of year where people want to dance and have fun. Just to understand, the genre was the "tramp who I am I ....".
Hoping for a change of pace below I realize though, and I'm not alone, that music is still too strong for the local indoor and also with too much bass. The mayor comes up to me and said: "Emiliano, you can tell the group to lower the volume." I go then from the guy who runs the mixer and I say, 'Sorry, said the mayor if you can lower a bit' volume. " You want to know the answer? "No". I have to comment on this kind of attitude?
Gliss then for a while 'until, stimulated by people who tell me that wants to dance a bit' of ballroom dancing and especially the fact that children have to go see the movie, I ask the group to perform the last song of the first part the evening. Piazzo so a little 'of ballroom dancing to a volume much, much softer and send the kids, over 30, watching the film in the adjacent room.
But the atmosphere does not heat up because they want to dance anywhere, either because my music that felt good in the tests before the event, now has something wrong. E 'virtually no bass and the background I hear a strange echo. Given that my music goes, for amplification, through the planting of the group I try to look at the mixer and other settings but it seems okay.
Meanwhile, the knuckle and lentils is expected in late and thus decides to pass the roast mixed, however, is served without salad, and then shows, in my opinion, too stringy.
They spend a half hour and the group decode to play again but their music disturbs the movie and the sound of children's film disturbs their music and then decide, not without complaint, to suspend for now anyway because People are still too interested in food.
Finally the knuckle with lentils latecomer arrives on our table even though, compared to last year, I found it a bit 'too fat, but maybe it happened to my table the cut worse.
However, we arrive at 20 minutes from midnight, and despite missing only five minutes at the end of the film, the group decided to return to play, forcing the children to crowd around the speakers to hear the ending. Fortunately, the movie ends and ends well for my father's interference with music.
We are almost close to midnight, and without a TV available, let the countdown, I and the mayor on stage with my iPhone which I loaded an ad-hoc software.
But you know, when something takes a bad turn drags then behind it all and also the time that, as you can see below, he had until sunset clouds on the horizon, she is putting her and cause rain, we are forced to remain indoors, celebrating midnight and losing, in part, outside the fire prepared to burn the new year.
Moreover, the group continued with their music, always in my opinion, not really suitable at the moment. I am not an admirer of the group dances but I am convinced that at midnight the people want to make a nice train. Resist up to almost one o'clock when, ill-treated by other friendly, I get on stage and asked the group to play the last song. Finally the evening party and also the train. Pee Pee PE PE PE PE ... ..
But after about twenty minutes, another cold shower. I realize that the group is taking apart the equipment. Who has managed the relationship with the group should specify that the plant was left for later music, but apparently has not happened.
At this point, mainly thanks to the intervention of the saint Ninetto and who knows him knows who I'm talking about, dismantle the plant in ten minutes of film and carry him to the stage by connecting my laptop with music "alternative."
Oddly, from that moment on, the sound of my laptop, which, amplified by the installation of the group came out so shameful, leaving more than acceptable by the installation of film and then can continue the evening well, almost, from .
Obviously the choice of DJ, the undersigned, is not very happy. But I say every year that I do not want to take the music and I am hopelessly involved. Fortunately holy Ninetto puts us back a piece with its own CD full of Latin music and dance groups suitable for the evening and then a bit 'of that and a bit' of my arrival at 3.00 am exhausted but happy.
Arrived at this point there is to say that in fact the evening is not so bad as it seems to describe this account told from the perspective of someone who has organized this event and therefore has seen and suffered every little imperfection.
Maybe the other 99% of those invited these problems has not seen them or they were not considered problematic, but this is my blog and this is my new year and I lived like that.
Sure I also enjoyed the contrary, it's fun to organize and solve problems is even more. Besides my kids have enjoyed it a lot more than last year dancing and laughing until 3.00 and that counts much, much more than all the rest.
Just .... ... Emiliano. Reminders for next year. No to live bands. No to the cinema for children, but much better, like last year, a magician or animation content. But above all we do not "cheat" for the third consecutive year with the speech "music." If someone has to put the music, which you call a someone who can make a craft. Ok?

A very good round of applause to the photographer.
October 30 The streets of Controguerra on OpenStreetMap
A bit 'of days ago I noticed that the street maps of the territory of present Controguerra on OpenStreetMap were very scarce as to be practicable only through the SP2 and a piece of the ring
For those who do not know, OpenStreetMap is a free editable map of the world, built largely from scratch using GPS traces, and released under a free license.
The OpenStreetMap License allows free access and use of images of the map and all the data used to create it.
In the final version is an "open" and "non commercial" of the various maps such as those present on the waterway, or Google Maps. The difference is that, being free, anyone can use it to create, for example, a navigator, or to insert a map on its website.
Because OpenStreetMap provides all the tools to edit the world map, I decided, in my small way, to add any information of my country.
Behold, as it is now the map of the same area
Sure, there is still much, like the whole street that leads to Tronto and Colonel, now, does not exist and there are still a bit 'narrow streets controguerresi but if you go to see the live version Enlarge definitely notice many more details than the photo above.
Therefore if you see a fool around the streets of Controguerra without any goal, Never mind, he's just doing a little 'healthy GPS tracking

July 05 Sighting of the orange scarecrow
Some months Controguerra has acquired, along some streets, totem for detecting the speed limit.
Apparently, however, the system is slow to take off and the "people" hums. This manifest was found affixed to one of these totem
The saddest thing is that it becomes difficult to give wrong this discontent. Even the philosophy of "let's pretend that work, so who will know standing given the conditions in which they are" already "been reduced some totem
where it is so obvious even the most inexperienced driver who is inside the totem, for now, only hot air.
Certainly, we expect everyone, from those responsible, a nice jolt to this unfortunate situation.
Tues 02 E 'nata Controguerra TV
Ten days of absence from the blog is a lot for myself and of course, deep down, why was there and who knows me well he certainly sensed that something was cooking in the pot when we take account of my recent blog post where he announced the creating a theme for WordPress to publish movies online.
The rationale was the need to brush up on old projects that two of the closet now that you see the light.
It 'the first is just born. E 'online a few hours before it CONTROGUERRA TV, WebTV, the first of our beautiful village.
Finally in a single portal, all shots of local councils, footage of the demonstrations, events and any associated media contribution to our beautiful country.
The effort made in terms of development and graphics has been remarkable, especially for someone like myself who is considered a graphic emerita duffer.
However, in the end, I must say that the result seems quite nice, straightforward and simple in content research. What do you think?
Obviously, if someone wants to work with this project, we will welcome with open arms.
February 10 Results appearances streaming Radar 09/02/2009
Great evening of live web streaming for the town of Controguerra. This evening the scene is not the usual city council but the presentation of the new road speed control system recently installed on some of our "roads" principal.
Presence of large public hall, I believe over 60 people, but especially on the web. Very stimulating chat with 8 friends and fellow citizens who, at the end of the intervention, those relating to applications were the most exciting of the evening.
Regarding the number of people who attended the event, making the usual comparison between who is usually present in chat and those who follow the event thought to have had a significant number of admissions via the web instead remains at around 10 spectators.
Virtually all those who were viewing the live event were then also present in the chat.
However a big thanks goes to them for their presence, for their perseverance, and for making the last part of the event very interesting.
For my part I hope to post about the event in version "full" even with mounted slides shown during the event itself.
February 01 Movie of the City Council of 30/01/2009
City Council lightning, that of 30 January 2009 with a single agenda item and, moreover, approved unanimously.
Began at 21:10 ended in less than twenty minutes. Perhaps the brevity of the board associated with this not really interesting at all has caused the low turnout of spectators streaming in any case there was, as is evident from the chart below
Too bad that none of these six spectators have also participated on the chat.
Soon I hope to publish the video of the board for future reference. Update after a few hours. The movie is published on the site of the town and, given the brevity of the movie in full on YouTube.
