    Celebrate Small Business Saturday in Chicago #SupportOurNeighborhoods
    I t's that time of year! With full bellies and hopefully memorable Thanksgiving dinners with family and friends, it is officially time to kick off the biggest shopping season of the year. And small businesses want a piece of the pie too-hence Small Business Saturday, which kicked off as an initiative from American Express in 2010 to encourage patronage of local businesses.

What can we middle age Chicagoans do to promote some positive soulful popular music such was the norm in the 1970s with music like Motown, R&B, Soul, Chicago Blues. I even liked a lot of Disco like Donna Summers and I sadly note that today's youth music is not in any way couples' dance music. When did it become reality that American youth, including Black African American youth doesn't know how to dance? I did hear that there is a small "step dancing" community, I hope it includes some young people. When is this terrible rap music plague going to finally end? It's gone on longer than the Bubonic Plague Black Death lasted in Europe!

Let's try to work for decent things in our Chicago city and I would include working for decent positive music for our young people. Yes, of course people have different tastes in music, musical tastes change. I think they often change for the worse, but maybe they will soon change for the better.

Carpet & Upholstery - Great Job!

Yesterday in preparation for the Holidays we had our carpet cleaned by Double A Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning. He did an excellent job without the truck, hoses, water and mess that we have experienced with other Carpet Cleaners. The icing on this cake was that the carpet dried in 2 hours, is clean and fresh with all natural products and amazingly reasonable. This is a family owned business and the owner Darrell is a local resident. His # is 773-895-9424.
