Ahhhh. Back again after a somewhat busy and rather difficult June and July with the passing of my father at the ripe old age of 89.
He was a great man who contributed greatly to the Italian-American community of Rochester, NY by not only sponsoring many Italian immigrants in the 50s and 60s, but also was a HUGE fan of soccer and was a manager of the Italian American team which won the US National Amateur Cup in 1963, and was instrumental in helping bring a professional team to Rochester, namely the Rochester Lancers of the NASL. He was also an excellent chef who made pasta sauce which is considered one of the best in our city, and made real home style Italian sausage. I will now try to carry on his legacy in the cooking department. My family and I will miss him dearly.
Now that the dust has settled, I’m in a more comfortable position to write this blog, something which I very much enjoy doing. Summer here in Western NY has been rather toasty and an 82° day actually feels rather comfortable compared to the record breaking 98° day we had a few weeks ago (that’s about 37°C ). Hopefully August will be much quieter now that the heavy stuff is behind me. As far as this blog goes, I will be switching over all old links to Mediafire a little at a time. I previously thought Multiupload was a better way to go, but apparently the links don’t hold up for very long, except for the Megaupload link which you can still download from. I know it works, I’ve tested it myself. Some of you may balk at Mediafire, but it’s the best way to go for a blogger on a tight budget. In the meantime, I’ve been getting all sorts of great records and the last box I dipped into had some nice gems in it too, so there’ll be lots of great tunes to be heard in the future as this series keeps rolling on towards a possible 100 volumes. Wouldn’t THAT be cool! Have a great day and enjoy life.
