Rich Boban and Mark Biegel at Paul Henry’s Art Gallery last night. Just beautiful. I love the way they sound together.
Some friends of mine from the Celebrating Tradition ensemble at the Old Town School of Folk Music got together for a party last night, and we sang this song by the band Clem Snide. I’m told it’s not as sweet as their version.
My friends and I practicing for our upcoming gig at the Grinders vs. Shriners game in Deep River Park on August 10th, 2014. Brian Conner on lead and Kathleen Soler on rhythm guitar, Chuck Detmar on mandolin and Lee Fiorio on bass. This was my first time playing it. Damn but we had fun last night! (The photo was from last year’s game.)
In 1907 the artist Lorado Taft proposed creating a waterway on the Midway Plaisance, connecting the bodies of water in Jackson Park to those in Washington Park.
This water canal would be traversed by three bridges, the Bridge of the Arts, the Bridge of Sciences and the Bridge of Religions.
On the east end of the Midway would be a scultpture called the Fountain of Creation and on the west end one called the Fountain of Time.
Of course, the latter would be the only one realized which stands today at the western edge of Midway Plaisance Park and the eastern edge of Washington Park.

Kool-Aid, although invented in Hastings, Nebraska in 1927, it’s production was moved to Chicago in 1931.
The plant, located at 7400 S Rockwell, would make Chicago the home of Kool-Aid for the next 70 years. Kool-Aid is now made in Mexico.
