Famed guitarist and radio personality and musician, Les Paul, heard on the Mary Ford and Les Paul radio show for many years when his wife, Mary Ford was alive, just opened at the new Iridium Jazz Club (Ellen’s diner) on Broadway and 51 Street.

The show was absolutely sensational and if you are looking for great entertainment on a Monday night, by all means stop by and enjoy the sounds of Les Paul and his Trio. You will marvel at the abundance of talent. The Strum family owns this club, Irving, Ellen and son Ron. I had a chance to talk to Ron and told him, "This will be one favorite spot on Monday nights."

Wonder Bra put on a fabulous fashion show with trapeze acts and all at Cipriani’s last week. They introduced their latest "pump-up" bra that works similar to a Mae West…only not as big and bulky.

Attached to each bra cup is a tiny tube that pumps up to whatever size you wish. This certainly beats undergoing surgery for that cleavage look that is so trendy today. And, just think, you can have more or less depending upon your desired wish for the day. Check it out in stores.

At the new Haru restaurant "Rocky", who owns all the Benihana Restaurants as well as all the Haru restaurants around the city stopped by to check out our services and food. The sushi, fresh halibut, salmon, clams cervechie, oysters and shrimp were just luscious. If you are into Japanese food, this is the place for you. Even if you don’t like Japanese food, this might be a good spot for you to try out.

Speaking of oriental food, I had a divine meal at Danny’s Szechuan and Cantonese Garden last weekend on Cross Bay Boulevard. Not only is the food good, the entertainment is marvelous, nothing like live music when dining. Ernie Barry, well known to many music lovers throughout the boroughs, appears there every Friday and Saturday evening. He is such a pleasure to listen to, especially if you love the songs by Sinatra, Jerry Vale, Como and Dean Martin.

Another year added for Gladys Crowley on August 16. Best wishes for a healthy and happy birthday Gladys. I was saddened to hear Jim Uriarity, B.P.S.C. tennis player passed on July 13. My deepest sympathy’s to his wife Ellen, daughter Maureen McCabe, and his entire family and friends.

Bocce scores at B.P.S.C., so far in men’s doubles: Tom Murray and Bill Tiedmun; Jim Brady and Mat Finley; Al Donhue, Andy Abatemarco and Nick Baudelle; John Caresse and Tim Weimar; Tom Godwin and Kenny Angelos.

Keep Friday, Sept 7 opened for the VFW, PFC John G. McLaughlin Post #8540, ladies auxiliary luncheon. The funds raised will go to the needs of the Veterans. Kid’s International Fashions Show was at the Javit’s Center and the most unique clothes were displayed.

My favorite was Raggerty Ragg’s; these clothes turned inside out and were reversible. They were just adorable and so beautifully made. They are perfect for travel, even if only to grandma’s. You needn’t worry if your child stains his or her clothes, just remove the garment, turn it inside out and it is a new outfit.

I’ll be showing some of them on WNYX-TV in October. Because of a disc problem in my lower back, I have been trying everything from neurologists to chiropractors and now I have an acupuncturist working on me and have finally found longer lasting relief. His name is Dr. James Pearl, PHD in Psychology; he studied acupuncture for 7 years with one year in China.

He is now at the newly opened Olive Leaf Center on East 23 Street between Lexington and Third Avenue. Perhaps some of you caught him on television last week when I interviewed him on WNYX. He is not only good for spinal aches; he can help patients with strokes, multiple sclerosis, depression, headaches as well as other ailments. He fuses Eastern and Western medicine, and the results are astonishing.

I have finally found relief with his procedures and I just want to share this information with you. You or your friends may want to look into it if you are looking for relief from pain. Alternative medicine is the way to go these days.

The National Dental Convention was held at the New York Hilton last week and it was eye opening. There are so many innovated methods they are inventing now. The Biolase method most impressed me with their latest technique. Though it is quit expensive for the dentist, he can make it all up with the volume of patients he will draw from the pain free attack at cavities, extractions and transplants.

The Biolase uses a water laser spray that literally melts away the enamel of the tooth or the cavity without drilling or discomfort. If you have children, by all means introduce them to this type of dental technique. Your child will no longer fear the dentist and, in all probability, he will look forward to seeing his dentist as scheduled.
