I grew up where everything was smaller. We lived in a small house. The gas prices were very high so we had a small car we could barely fit into. The big things I got were clothes. That was so I would not grow out of them too fast. I applaud my parents for doing all they could to provide. Because of their dedication to get me through school, I can now support them in their retirement. I could have taken my salary and bought a big house. Instead, I looked for nicely sized apartments in Houston TX where I now worked. If you look around, you can get a big apartment for a low lease price.

I used to say as a young teenager how I was going to grow up and drive a big car and live in a big house. I told everyone that my clothes were going to be designed by a personal tailor. Read the rest of this entry »

I just moved to a new state, and I am not going to mention which one, in the interest of privacy. But I am looking into Comcast service locations to see if I will be able to get Comcast service in this area or if I will have to look for another provider. I used Comcast in the past, and so to me it seems like the easiest course of action would just be to continue service with them, but the easiest course of action is not always the best choice. But still, I am going to check that out first, and then I am going to try to see what the deals are like out here, and see how it compares to the rate that I was getting when I had their service at my last place.

It has been a big transition so far, moving to a new state and all, but I think the worst of it is over.. I have gotten everything unpacked, for the most part, but it is still kind of unorganized, which annoys me. I am kind of OCD when it comes of organization, but I just don’t have time to pay attention to that stuff, considering that I have had so many other things to take care of in the process of moving.

I am glad that I paid a moving company, because I have a bad back, and I really do not like moving heavy stuff. But that does not mean that moving was easy. It was still a bit of a pain, and I am sure glad that it is over. Now I need to get internet hooked up at my new place, because it sure bothers me that I do not have internet service in my apartment at the moment.

  1. The Chamber Music Society of Lower Basin Street is a musical variety radio program which began on the Blue Network in 1940. The magazine Radio Life described it as “one of radio’s strangest offsprings… a wacky, strictly hep tongue-in-cheek burlesque of opera and symphony.” It was a weekly half-hour of jazz, played by leading practitioners of the day. The format was a dry satire of the stuffy symphonic and operatic broadcasts announced by the dignified Milton Cross.

    The Basin Street opening, intoned by announcer Jack McCarthy, usually went along these lines…..

    Greetings, music lovers, and that includes you too, Toots. Once again you are tuned in on a concert by the no doubt world renowned Chamber Music Society of Lower Basin Street, whose members have consecrated their lives to the preservation of the music of the Three Bs: Barrelhouse, Boogie-Woogie, and the Blues. Present with us on this solemn occasion: Mademoiselle Dinah (Diva) Shore, who starts fires by rubbing two notes together; Maestro Paul Laval and his ten termite-proof woodwinds; Dr. Gino Hamilton, as our chairman and intermission commentator; and Dr. Henry Levine, with his Dixieland Little Symphony of eight men.

    The society’s low-key chairman, the witty Gene Hamilton (always introduced as “Dr. Gino Hamilton”), would then call the meeting to order, peppering his formal speech with slang: “There are those critics of the saxophone who say it is merely an unfortunate cross between a lovesick oboe and a slap-happy clarinet. To those critics we must say, ‘Kindly step outside with us a moment’ and ‘Is there a doctor in the house?'” These off-center comments were actually scripted by Welbourn Kelley, but Hamilton’s deadpan deliveries often made the musicians laugh out loud. The program then delivered 30 minutes of blues and hot jazz, with Dr. Gino stepping in between numbers to deliver such comments as, “A Bostonian looks like he’s smelling something. A New Yorker looks like he’s found it.”

    Two resident bands provided the music. Henry Levine and His Dixieland Octet offered traditional “readings” of jazz standards such as “Farewell Blues,” “St. Louis Blues,” and “When My Sugar Walks Down the Street.” Trumpeter Levine (born Harry Lewis in London, England in 1907), a former member of the Original Dixieland Jazz Band, was quite familiar with these arrangements. Paul Laval and His Woodwindy Ten (which included some of Levine’s personnel) played the same type of music on more symphonic instruments, demonstrating that such instruments as oboe, bassoon, and celeste were equally capable of producing hot jazz. In 1943 maestro Laval (born Joseph Usifer in Beacon, New York in 1908) changed his surname to “Lavalle” to avoid association with then-notorious war criminal Pierre Laval.
