I'm sure there's music in Heaven. It just couldn't be Heaven without it -especially for Frank Howard! The Mills Brothers, the Dorseys, Helen O'Connell, the GREAT Glenn Miller, Bing Crosby, the beautiful Alice Faye...

 

There just has to be! I was a music major for about three years (I played ttrombone from the time I was 10) so it's always been special to me. That line up would be one great concert!

 

So much great music! To me, Glenn Miller has to the best of all.

 

As I mentioned before, I played trombone so I am required to love Glen Miller. Sad end though! At least he wasn't to good for military; he took his chances like everyone else in a B-17. Can you imagine Paris Hilton signing up for a hitch in military for duty in Iraq? Not that we would want her! Another favorite: Artie Shaw.

 

Bing Crosby's White Christmas makes me use a whole wad of kleenex every time I hear it.

 

Once again, right on! Bing has become sort of a tradition at our house. Of all holidays, this is one we love to spend as a family (me, my wife, and the two boys.) I can go visit my extended familiy for the Fourth of July or something.

This Christmas it will be especially bitter/sweet because I will be leaving for Iraq in January and it looks unlikely that I will be back before the next Christmas. But I will be like millions of other service men and women who have missed Christmas over the years so I don't feel too bad for myself. My grandfather (and most of you guys what hung out in the Med.) was gone for almost three years. I just feel bad about the kids because they didn't ask for this. I will be in excellent company, at least!

Rocky - here's the flip side of "Green Eyes (Aquellos Ojos Verdes)" and another of my Dad's favorites :"Maria Elena". Written by Lorenzo Barceleta for Mexico's First Lady, it was recorded in 1941 by the Lawrence Welk Orchestra.

 

This is one of my favorite instrumental versions by Ry Cooder.

 

Thought you might enjoy it.

Updated the music page again. We now have 260 tunes for your listening pleasure, plus a complete PDF songlist with artist (where known). Hope you love it. There's quite a variety now!

Completely revamped our music site today; it got a face lift. Guess I was inspired by getting our forum back up and running today. So enjoy the new site.

 

And as of Wednesday morning, October 22, 2008, we have had 325, 600 visitors to our music site. This is fantastic! Thanks everyone for making it a smashing success. Beat me daddy, eight to the bar!

Music site will be moving to a new server this weekend - November 8th, 2008. This is our last of our BIG MOVES this year, and now all our STUFF will be residing at HostMonster, and we will no longer have anything at GO DADDY.

 

I do not like the service we get at Go Daddy, and after the last FIASCO with our main site (forum), I will never again host with them.

 

The one good thing is they agreed to refund my money for our music site, when I decided to move it. That is after I got a bit pissy with them about charging me $150.00 to restore our forum. I told them I would pull our remaining account (music), and I have their word IN WRITING, I would receive a refund. You can bet I will hold them to it!

 

So if you go to the music site this weekend, and it is down for a bit, please do not panic; it's going to a better home.
