Lets Cool Things Off

...given yesterday's scorching heat (scroll down) with a little dance number from Fred Astare and Ginger Rogers.

I read an article in yesterday's Wall Street Journal about a new book, "Music Makes Me: Fred Astaire and Jazz," which discusses that scene at length along with some of Fred's other work its connections to American Jazz.

My friends know that I ask for motor skills every Christmas but never quite seem to get them.  When I played Prof. Harold Hill in "The Music Man" while in high school they had to dumb down the Shipoopi for me!  I greatly admire those that are so graceful they can dance on stage.
