To all my members and anyone who has applied for membership for this website,


I am no longer able to post, add, or delete material on this website.


Webs.com claims that at some point in 2016 they sent a notice to all people having a website with them that they were changing their software.


I never received any notice.


Unfortunately, once I realized I couldn't access my website (except for posting this notice) to make any changes, additions, or deletions, the folks at webs.com told me there was nothing they could do about it, except have me watch a very limited and quite uninformative YouTube video about their new software. 


I was further informed that the ONLY thing I could do, in terms of having all my writings, essays, photos, and videos on their new software was to copy every single one of those items and then transfer it to the new software.


Considering that I find how to use their new software quite confusing, challenging, and off-putting, I find that to be an unbelievable amount of work, and frankly, at this point, I don't have the inclination and patience or ability to attempt such an endeavor.


What irks me the most is how webs.com didn't even have the courtesy to offer some type of conversion/transfer of the old website to the new website software for its customers.  It was like, "tough luck, buddy, that's the way it is".  I have been a loyal paying customer of theirs since 2010.  I really enjoyed my website, and it was so easy to use.


I'm still paying for the website, so I hope they don't disable it, and that folks can still view it in its original form.  Even though I no longer can do anything with it.


In case you are interested, my new book, "Until The Birds Chirp: Reflections On The Sixties", did moderately well in 2016.  I'm proud of it, and for the most part the book has received good customer reviews and articles about it.


Here is the amazon link:

Thank you all.

Of course I remember you Helene.  I don't think we had too many classes together in that big old high school.  I think we first met at the United Jewish Center when we around ten years old.  I'm gonna write to you privately.

Thanks for joining my website..take care.

Hi, Marc!  You probably don't remember me but we were THE FIRST class to complete the first 4 years at the NEW DHS!!!  

I, also, was at the Doors concert that night that Jim Morrison smashed the mic stand on the stage and Mr. Murnane came out very upset!!  What a night that was.  

Do you recall when Paul Newman came to town to shoot his movie, "Rachel, Rachel"?  A lot of the locals were in that movie.  When it came out, Fran (Recine) Quinn and I went to school in Boston and couldn't wait to go and see it in the theater in Boston!!!  

It's nice to see all your writings of days gone by which brings back memories to us '60's flower children!!  Have the happiest of New Year's and keep those memories coming .... you do fabulous work.  :)

Dear Marc,

I am the archivist at Madison Square Garden. We are working on displays of some "Defining Moments" in MSG history. Concert for Bangladesh is one of the moments. I loved reading your recollection of the event and seeing the ticket stub. Is it possible to email or talk directly? My email is [email protected] and tel 212-631-4327.

Thanks, June

Hi Marc.  You probably don't remember me, but we were in house choir together in 1967/68.  There 's a picture in the "68 yearbook.  Sue Hanson and I hung out in the music department.  I left Danbuy in December of '69 when my father took a job in Florida.  Middle of my junior year.  This is an interesting website and congratulations on all the information you have here.

Hi Evi,

I'm wracking my brain trying to figure out who you are, and feel that I should know.

Anyway, whenever I get back to Danbury, although the city has changed quite a bit since I left in 1973, it is comforting to know that mcuh of that South End remains basically the same.  I do miss seeing Angelo's Pizza at it's old location near the old Nejame's IGA store, when I used to catch a bus to the Lake in the summer when I was a teen, Carvel's, and Buddy's Mobil gas station. But yes, I have noticed that the old Wooster Hose volunteer firefighters are still there.  At one point in the 1960s, there were about five or six people on Putnam Drive who belonged to it.

Thanks for stopping by.

Marc

Hi Marc!  I grew up a couple of blocks away from you.  My mom taught at South Street and I was a '71 DHS grad.  Was so pleased to find the link to your page from Elaine Lagarto/Danbury Fair friends.  Cannot WAIT to read "The Giant's Chair"!!!  I used a photo of the former Penyak's Liquor Store during last January's snowstorm to give you an idea of the drifts here on "the South Side"...  Merry Christmas to you and yours!  Evi

PS:   Just got home from the Wooster Hose Christmas party.  Bet you remember our little green fire house, too!

Welcome to all who stop by here to read, look and see.  It's been exactly one year since this website began.  Glad that so many people have enjoyed coming here to this hodge-podge of writings, videos, and photos.  Special thanks to those who have registered and left comments.

Many of you have noticed my expansion into comments about Occupy Wall Street, and the Opinion and New Book sections.  Speaking of New Book, I've been writing a lot lately, adding chapters to what I hope will someday become a book.  Thanks for your encouragement.

Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year 2012.

Marc
