    November 1st, 2009. This WordPress weblog is now listed in the Google search engine, and I am testing the ‘Comments’ page. Before you send your thoughts to this column, let me explain something here.

    You see what is obviously an incomplete work. Unlike other WordPress bloggers who prefer to send their works out in Finished form, I’ve allowed mine to go into search engines as soon as possible. There’s much more text and many more photos coming, but distractions with errands and other chores leave my free time constantly up for grabs. So I have little choice but to fill the pages S-L-O-W-L-Y, one step at a time. Fear not, folks…this weblog will be at least HALF complete by Thanksgiving, and the REST of it will be here by New Year’s Day.

    Check back often. Many thanks from Ralph Baker – ‘Draaiorgelfan’!

    Thank u so much for this page! I hope that this will really come true one day and all of us who love and admire Dean will get the chance to see his shows!

    Thank u!

    And I thank YOU so much, Maria! At present there is only one way to see The Dean Martin Show in the highest video quality, and that is by way of the 29-DVD set (about 40 hours worth) marketed by Guthy-Renker. Keep your fingers crossed and hope for the best!

  4. Hey pallie, likes thanks for sharin’ info on the ilovedinomartin Dinoblog….and wishin’ you the Dinobest Mr. Baker on your so important Dinomisson of gettin’ full episodes, full seasons of the Dinoshow in the hands of Dinoholics likes you and me. Dinodevotedly, DMP

  5. 5

    Well now, I am supremely Dinodelighted to welcome your Dinobest wishes to ‘Your Turn!’, Mr. Peters. Our Dinomission will be a long, hard fight in the Courts, but we surely have Dinoblessings from all believers in the Coolest Cat who once walked upon this Earth and who now sings “Everybody Loves Somebody” to the Angels in Heaven. If and when we WIN this battle, There_Will_Be! the Second Coming of The Entertainer Extraordinaire – Mr. DEAN MARTIN!

    And I can hear The Golddiggers singing the words of the great Louis Armstrong: “It’s So Nice To Have You Back Where You Belong!”.

    Cheers from Ralph Baker!

  6. Hey pallie, likes just keep fightin’ the good Dinofight…truly our Dino is worthy of all our Dinoefforts…woulda be cool it you stopped by the ilovedinomartin Dinopad and dropps some Dinopatter every now and again…we all can use more Dinoencouragement pallie!

    Hiya Ralph, Thanks for being the first person to sign the guest book at the Authorized Janice Whitby fansite.

    I see that you’re from RI. Will you be attending the Boston Super Megafest ? Janice will be making her first convention appearance She’ll have pictures available from “The Golddiggers” and “Laugh-in” to sign as well as photo’s of her fembot character from the “Kill Oscar” trilogy”.

  8. 8

    Hello, Mark…and I thank YOU for noting the first signer in Janice’s guestbook!

    Boston Center is just 40 miles from here, but two elderlies need my attention every day. So I can’t grab 6 hours predictably enough to attend the Megafest on the weekend. Nonetheless – I send sincere regards to Janice with best wishes for a successful return to acting. Starlight, Star bright….

    Cheers from Ralph!

    Thanks for some memories from the past when variety shows lived. I can’t quite get into these “new,” packaged MTV videos, though the old shows had their own packaging, I suppose. Maybe, it’s because I keep my radio tuned on oldies stations. You have a good Christmas over in RI and remember what every body needs sometimes.

  10. 10

    Just logged in for a few minutes after a hectic day. The current state of music and dance is all flash with lots of noise, and it’s rough on the eyes and eardrums. Today’s entertainers haven’t got a clue! So we rely on the Oldies and Variety from the good old days.

    Everyone needs something to hope for, someone to believe in, and the spirit to make a dream come true.

    And YOU have a good Christmas as well, Ken. Cheers!

    Hey Ralph-
    Wasn’t sure if you got my reply yesterday on the comment page of my website you were visiting, so if not, I’ll reply here on your site…:)
    I also have lots of fond memories of those wonderful places as well as those years – the late 60’s – early 70’s. I use to live in Southern California many years back but have been in northern cal for the past 40+ years. And yes I am aware of the Beach Boys reference to P.O.P. I do fondly remember watching the Dean Martin variety show often – and am reminded about it from whenever the 30 minute infomercials come on TV every now and then about the compilation episodes they’re promoting for sale – Dean Martin, Carol Burnett, Red Skelton, Jackie Gleason, Bob Hope, Andy Williams, Texaco Star Theater, Rowan & Martin, Smothers Brothers – all favorites of mine back in the day – so much better than a lot of the stuff on TV nowadays. I’ll have to check out your site/blog. Sounds like you’re a nostalgia buff too! – Thanks for commenting.

    Hi, Ralph:
    Best wishes for your success in the development of your Blog Site. This time of the year always brings back warm memories of the many Christmas TV Specials that I did with Dean Martin while I was a member of The Golddiggers.
    Experiences with Dean Martin, The Golddiggers and the ‘real’ Rat Pack are sentimentally etched in my mind. I’m sure you had fun reading some of the messages that my “Golddigger sisters” have left on my Blog Link entitled, Dean Martin: Memories of The Golddiggers. Some of these amazing ladies have performed with me in The Golddiggers within three decades, 1973 till 2003.
    The Golddigger group that I was blessed to be a part of shared wonderful memories that are being documented in a book: http://www.BeyondOurWildestDreams.com
    Below is a little trivia of some of our credits as The Golddiggers. Did you know? …
    * We performed on countless episodes of the Dean Martin TV Comedy Hour and Dean Martin TV Specials.
    * Toured with Bob Hope, Louie Prima, Jerry Vale, The Rat Pack tour with “Ole Blue Eyes and Ole Red Eyes” and many other Legends.
    * Performed as Dean’s opening act, starting at the grand opening of the MGM in Las Vegas in the 70’s until the Bally’s years through the 80’s. Las Vegas Visitor, December 5, 1975: “ … the lively assemblage of beautiful ladies are a showstopping treat.”
    * Many of us have never stopped performing as soloists and as a group. Our group continues to perform today, paying tribute to the legends that we co-starred with in “Showstoppers” starring former Dean Martin Golddiggers.
    * There were three sisters, the Alberici Sisters (my maiden name) who were a part of The Golddiggers during the late 70’s.
    * Today, my sisters and I continue to be advocates of Health and Fitness.
    Ralph, thanks for writing on my Blog: http://www.YourPowerfulLife.com
    You can find out more information about my times in The Golddiggers, including pictures on my Site at: http://www.marialauren.com/
    Have a Blessed Holiday season!

    I’m sorry, but I must disagree with your opinion of Dean Martin impersonators. I have seen Andy DiMino, Russ Lonielo & Joe Scalissi. The other ones you have up I have never seen and by the look of them never will. By far, Joe Scalissi is the best. He performed at the annual Dean Martin festival long before Russ Lonielo & can’t do it anymore because from the time he arrives in town to the time he leaves, he has people all over him trying to get a piece of him. You really need to see these guys live before you make a judgement. Joe Scalissi looks so much like Dean Martin in the Rat Pack days. He has the voice down perfect. And he has that certain magic that Dean had. None of these other impersonators even come close to having what Joe Scalissi has. Some impersonators have either the voice of the right look. I’ve said about other impersonators before, “if I closed my eyes he sounded like him”, or “he kind of looks like him, but sounds nothing like him”.

    Joe Scalissi has both the best look and voice, he is the full package Dean Martin impersonator.

    Just so you don’t think I am speaking about something I know nothing about, I have been a Dean Martin fan since the early 1950’s when he was with Jerry Lewis. I saw him perform 17 times between 1966 and 1988.

    I would suggest you see these people perform live (as I have) before you decide who does the best job.

  15. 15

    Hello, Denise. To be perfectly honest, I can’t disagree with you because I never had time or travel expense to attend the performances. In the currrent state of the economy I must win a lottery nd get a home of my ownbefore I opt to see a show by any of he listed performers.

    I’m using a neighbor’s PC tonight because mine is having ‘Settings’ problems. It’s been like this fo more than a month!

  16. 16

    Hello-o-o, Maria! Thank you so much for writing. I’ll catch up to you on your WordPress blog pretty soon. I’ve been off of my blog for over a month due to Settings problems, tonight I’m using a neighbor’s computer.
    Here’s wishing you a very Happy and Successful New Year!

  17. 17

    Today I regained access to my blog after making some ‘Settings’ changes in my computer. Apparently I overlooked the cookie allowance in my Privacy options when I changed to the new Windows 7. Many bloggers are using Internet Explorer 8 for their preferred browser, and I’m satisfied enough to stay with IE8 as well. So be it!

    OK, I have much to catch up on and some revisions to make before I expand these pages further. The various Dean Martin Impersonator sites were listed without my personal attendance to gain knowledge by, so I’ll revise the list later tonight. And I certainly thank Denise for her notation regarding Joe Scalissi; his act would be a great one to follow if I lived close enough to be in his audience.

    To all readers following Raynee Ashman Steele (Micki McGlone): that singular newsfeed went out to many more newspapers around the eastern half of the country; I listed just the one because it’s the same article from Florida to Oklahoma to Illinois to Massachusetts. The item was listed on at least 22 local newspaper sites in the Google search.

    There’s so much to catch up on, and lots more to do on this blog. Be patient, readers…you’ll see improvements pretty soon.

    Cheers from Ralph Baker – ‘Draaiorgelfan’!

    Tonight is January 24th, and I added a secondary note to the front page titled “In Living Color!”. Someone from the ‘Rosedalegardens’ blog sent a message to that page; I’ll remove from there and reprint it here.

    His/her letter reads: “One of the Huntsville (Alabama) stations channel 48 waff.com has a digital channel 48.2 that has nothing but the old shows on. Jack Benny, Patty Duke, Mister Ed. I just upgraded one of my analog TVs so that I can get a local channel in bad weather; haven’t had time to check out the full schedule. Satellite goes out in heavy rain.”. (The message was submitted on January 21st or 22nd.)

    I reply here; Well, sir (or ma’am) at http://rosedalegardens.wordpress.com, – Good for you! Now you should be able to get that channel – and others – far better than you could before. If you happen to find The Dean Martin Show airing on those digital channels – PLEASE write back as soon as you can.

    I just might move to Huntsville!!!

    Thanks for visiting my blog…today’s kiddos are definitely missing out! The cowboy and I are raising our kids the way we were raised….as kids. Not little adults.

    I love Dean Martin, and enjoyed reading your blog….the kiddos and I spend a lot of time watching some of the great shows like Dick Van Dyke, Beaver and Lucy…I never have to worry about what the kiddos will see.

    Good Luck!

  20. 20

    And I thank YOU, Lily…or should I address you as ‘Mama Kid-o”…for noting my comment and for reading my blog.

    The Dean Martin Show was clean-cut like so many other TV shows of that era. Today’s programs are way off the mark in terms of quality; there’s no redeeming value to be remembered with passing generations of screenwatchers. NBC-TV made a deal that Dean couldn’t refuse; he accepted, and for nine years his devoted fans came out as the Grand Winners. Let’s hope that The Dean Martin Show/Golddiggers will be available so YOUR kids can be Winners, too.

    While we’re waiting, bring on the snow. Cheers!

    Hi!
    How are you? Hope you had a great start of the new year : )

    Maria

  22. 22

    Hi, Maria! And welcome back. I read at your blog that you were going on vacation for a while.

    I added more to this blog while you were away, and you may see from my past comments that I’m a month behind. I changed to Windows 7 but kept the Internet Explorer 8 during the changeover, and I forgot to look at the ‘cookie’ settings. W7 wiped out the settings with a whole new copy of IE8!

    Anyway, I’m still here and I’ll be over at your blog pretty soon. Happy New Year – on February 1st – grom Ralph, a.k.a. Draaiorgelfan!

  23. 23

    Oh i see, i had a computer problem my self after x-mas, mine was stollen, with external hardrive too… so i lost a lot of songs, pictures, movies etc.. But i think i’v got all of them now again 🙂
    So now i’m blogging again : ) So hope to be seeing you on my blog soon : )

    Maria

  24. 24

    To Maria Jensen AND Maria Lauren…plus anyone else —

    Your letters are posting at random out of sequence. I don’t know why this is happening, but I’ll figure it out some day.

    To Maria Jensen – you can certainly list me on Facebook if you want to. I myself am NOT on Facebook, but thanks for asking. I’ll visit your blog in a day or two.

    Cheers from Ralph!

  26. 26

    To the writers above – please ignore the last message. I fiddled around with the settings for this page, and the whole page straightened out completely! The messages are all in order now.

    To Maria Jensen – apparently your home was broken into, so I hope you didn’t have anything financial (no bank statements, etc.) on your hard drive. Everything else can be replaced without too much difficulty.

    Now let’s all bring back The Dean Martin Show. Cheers!

  27. 27

    Hi Ralph,
    how are you doing?
    Hope everything is fine with you 🙂

  28. 28

    Hello-o-o-o, Maria!

    I’m just fine, thank you, and recently I reached my 60th year on this planet Earth. If you and other readers wonder why this WordPress blog is stamding still, it’s because I’ve been occupied with other matters. It’s hard to get ahead of distractions when they just keep coming and coming…

    But I’m here tonight, looking over everything and wondering what to add next. There’s so much to add now but every detail must go in a certain order.

    I see that you are in the Pallies Lounge of Mike Schnitzer’s recent new blog ‘Dean Golds and Dings’. Mike is mad at me – and I’m mad at HIM, too! – so he’ll never let my good letters appear on either of his blogs. But keep watching THIS blog; there will be new information inserted pretty soon.

    And I’ll be visiting YOUR blog sometime next week. Boy, have I got catching up to do.

    Thanks so much for writing. Cheers from Ralph!

  29. 29

    Well then happy birthday : )
    Yeah same problem here as well, i have finals now at school, so there is more then enough stuff to do : /
    I got a letter from him this week, where he is asking me to stop posting original Dean Martin Show’s on my youtube channel, and if i will do that he’ll block me from all of his site’s as well. So you’ll not alone : )

    Will do that : )

    Hope everything is fine,

    all the best

    Maria : )

    I just loved Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis. They’d have me on the floor, holding my belly, and in tears from the laughter…

  31. 31

    Hello, Deena!

    Dean and Jerry were a riot everywhere they went. Their early stage act was honed in restaurants; the pair would work up a few laughs in a ‘talk-to-each-other’ monologue which got physical, slowly at first and then escalating into a free-for-all with food and dishes flying all over the place. The patrons were overcome with giddy hysteria and had a grand time; the owners got mad but nobody got hurt, and the boys cleaned up the mess – even paid the helpers – after the patrons left. Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis had won their way to stardom!

    I’ve inserted your blog in my ‘Links’ list for our readers. Thanks for commenting, and check out Maria Lauren’s beautiful writing whenever you can.

    Cheers from Ralph!

  32. 32

    Hi, Ralph:
    It’s nice to know you’re keeping up with my blog.
    Legends like Dean Martin and Jerry Lewis will live forever. Too bad there are no TV variety shows today like the Dean Martin Show. It was always a thrill to perform with Dino as one of The Golddiggers … so many memories … it was a blessing. The only TV show that comes close is reviewed on my blog … Up Close: “Dancing with the Stars.”
    Check it out in a few days: http://www.YourPowerfulLife.wordpress.com
    Continued blessings,
    Maria Lauren

    Hi, Maria!

    You’re so very welcome! In the time since I discovered “Your Powerful Life”, I’ve read the entire site three times and returned three MORE times for second looks at certain parts. That’s not enough reads, but my everyday situation doesn’t give me a 3-hour stretch without SOME distraction coming up, so I’m always playing Catch-up here at WordPress, at Yahoo!, and in various Internet studies. I have chores and errands through each day, so time is unpredictable.

    Either my last commenter clicked to your site and wrote to you, or you have my blog set for constant monitor. Either way – the message gets through.

    May God bless you!

  34. 34

    Hi Ralph!
    I’m touched and honored to be on your links list! Thank you so much! Hopefully my posts will connect with others and help them laugh at life as well. I’ll be checking out Maria’s site and yours some more.

    Regards,
    Deena

    Hey Ralph!
    You’re so right! Lagunatic is hysterical! It’s amazing how many women are out there writing about their daily lives and keeping us in stitches. It’s great to know that we’re not alone. That’s what makes the posts even funnier, the “Oh my God, me too!” effect.

  36. 36

    Hi again, Deena! Yes, Susan(“Lagunatic”) is quite the sidesplitter in her unexpected way of relating to daily life. I think she learns by the Trial & Error method. Lotsa laughs!

    Your previous letter went without reply here because I chose to write “Welcome Aboard!” on YOUR blog. Someone else has you on their list, so you’re getting around. We’re in great company!

    To you and to all my readers – play safe, drive safe, and enjoy the Memorial 3-day weekend. Cheers!

  37. 37

    Oh Geez! It showed up as spam on my comments. I read it, loved the lovely comments, and was torn between calling it spam or not. I erred on the side of safety and spammed it! Argh! I won’t do that again. Thanks!! Happy long weekend!

  38. 38

    Note to all readers: The ‘Reply’ function may be sending messages to the Spam box on your blogs, so I won’t be using that function any further. All replies should be sent as original 1st ‘Submits’.

    Thanks from Ralph a.k.a. Draaiorgelfan!

  39. 39

    Sorry to hear about your technology woes! I certainly have a love/hate relationship with it! 🙂

  40. 40

    Me, too! Technology brings so many improvements, but also many more chances for something to go wrong. One minor burp…and the show’s over!

    Y’know, Deena…if I were a magician I would bring back the 1950s and 1960s and keep ’em forever. Technology was nothing like it is now, but life was easier; lower prices, less traffic, fewer headaches.

    Let’s hear it for the Good Ol’ Days!

  41. 41

    I wish for the simpler times myself, but as with all things, there are certain things for which I am glad we evolved. Nostalgia is a tricky bugger. It puts rose-colored glasses on us all. But rose can be a very pretty color…

  42. 42

    B-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l, from the soul!

  43. 43

    HI! I like the meshing of the old and the new creating something both nostalgic and innovative with music and costumes … I think I need to do a show soon!

  44. 44

    Maria,
    I think you’re on to something!
    Deena

  45. 45

    Hi, Maria! Suddenly I have a mental vision of your Showstoppers ensemble singing some of Dean Martin’s earliest songs, changing the key and words just enough to to compliment the girls’ collective vocal range and find their proper audience.

    Doing a show? Ooooh, if I could be one member of that audience…

    Yours Truly will devote full attention; just say when!

  46. 46

    Ralph, I like your vision!! As soon as my sister and I finish writing our book, “Beyond Our Wildest Dreams” we’ll be able to perform our “Showstoppers” musical review where we give tribute to true legends like Dean Martin and Frank Sinatra … sing their songs and tell the stories of a different kind of show biz that we shared. Did you see our book promo? http://www.BeyondOurWildestDream.com
    We’ll keep you posted!

    Thank you for visiting my page and leaving a comment. =]

  48. 48

    Good evening Ralph!
    If you haven’t done so yet, check out my site. It’s changes a lot AND I added the first installment of Brethren Beginnings, a precursor to my two novels. It’s getting great grades from my writing buddies. It’s very exciting! I also have a new poem – Will it Ever Come, The Rain

    Cheers!
    Deena http://www.deenaremiel.com

  49. 49

    Oh boy, this ‘Comments’ column is gaining a foothold!

    First, to Tangerineflorida – you’re very welcome! I’ll be visiting the Big Education Ape at Blogspot again soon, and I hope your post draws many more comments from concerned readers.

    To Maria – yes, I saw the Promo for your forthcoming book, and I’ll make room in my budget for an advance copy from the first run.

    And to Deena – I do see changes in your blog on or about every third day since first discovery. Next visit on Wednesday, so I’ll read your new poem then.

    Tomorrow is June 9th, and my sister is moving her belongings down to a Center for the Elderly where she’ll be a personal caregiver to an Aunt. I have U-Haul duty for this event, so the Baker household is in a temporary state of ‘Madhouse’! While I help load the truck I’ll also rearrange the garage…again…

    Cheers to all!

  50. 50

    Good luck tomorrow, and take it easy!

  51. 51

    Guess what my hubby and I have been doing the last few mornings (when it’s cool)? … Clearing out our garage!! We’re giving huge bags of stuff to a variety of charities. Guess great minds think a like. 😉

  52. 52

    In our household there’s not a lot that we can donate to charities. Any items no longer needed here are given to neighbors while the items are still worthy. We don’t keep enough for a yard sale.

    Anyway, it’s good to park the one car in the middle once again. Everything else is accessible without climbing over TWO cars!

    Ralph 😀

  53. 53

    Hi, Ralph:

    Hope you are well. I see you have been busy putting together a page of all those connected with Dean Martin … an interesting read!
    I wanted to let you know that there was a misprint. Linda Eichberg is my sister (same mom & dad) and Linda Regan is one of my “Golddigger sisters.

    Blessings to you,
    Maria

    Would be interested to read your comments regarding the Dean to Jerry song: “You Skinny Hebrew”
    By: Dean Dino Martin
    Never before Available to the General Public
    (A 1953 humorous & satirical birthday tribute song from Dean Martin to Jerry Lewis)

    If you go to the Apple iTunes Store and type “You Skinny Hebrew” in the search line, you will see the Dino to Jerry song.

    You can also click on this link: http://itunes.apple.com/us/album/you-skinny-hebrew-live/id352134363?i=352134391&ign-mpt=uo%3D4

    Dean Martin (June 7, 1917 – December 25, 1995), born Dino Paul Crocetti in Steubenville, Ohio to Italian immigrant parents, Gaetano and Angela Crocetti.

    Martin and Lewis’ official debut together occurred at Atlantic City’s 500 Club on July 24, 1946 and they were not well received.. More than a few people dubbed them “The Organ Grinder and the Monkey”.

    Lewis and Martin agreed to “go for broke”, to throw out the pre-scripted gags and to improvise. Dean sang and Jerry came out dressed as a busboy, dropping plates and making a shambles of both Martin’s performance and the club’s sense of decorum until Lewis was chased from the room as Martin pelted him with bread rolls. They did slapstick, reeled off old vaudeville jokes, and did whatever else popped into their heads at the moment. This time, the audience doubled over in laughter. This success led to a series of well-paying engagements on the Eastern seaboard, culminating in a triumphant run at New York’s Copacabana.

    The act broke up in 1956, 10 years to the day from the first official teaming.

    Dino made a public reconciliation with Jerry Lewis on Lewis’ Labor Day Muscular Dystrophy Association telethon in 1976. Frank Sinatra shocked Lewis and the world by bringing Martin out on stage. As Martin and Lewis embraced, the audience erupted in cheers and the phone banks lit up, resulting in one of the telethon’s most profitable years. Lewis reported the event was one of the three most memorable of his life. Lewis brought down the house when he quipped, “So, you working?” Martin, playing drunk, replied that he was “at the Meggum” – this reference to the MGM Grand Hotel convulsed Lewis. This, along with the death of Martin’s son Dean Paul Martin a few years later, helped to bring the two men together. They maintained a quiet friendship but only performed together again once, in 1989, on Dean’s 72nd birthday.

    Martin died of acute respiratory failure at his home on Christmas morning 1995, at the age of 78.

    Hi, Maria! I put that page up some time ago, and I’m NOWHERE near finished with it. Same for the rest of my blog.

    This summer has been one nuisance after another. We had many days with 90-degree+ temperatures and lots of high humidity; with THAT combination the regular lawn slows down but the crabgrass and weeds THRIVE!, so the outdoor chores took up more of my time than normal. This blog has been hacked TWICE in the password department, so I’ve had to change passwords at least three times since late June. And if THAT’S not all, I’ve been handed a royal headache by the fellow on the “Dateline: July 2006” page. I’ll send you an eMail with the details-in-a-nutshell after the weekend.

    Your message is posted here after being in my ‘Pending’ box for a week or so. Yes, I’m doing quite well in spite of everything, and Thursday was my first time back here since late June. Now, if I could just win that lottery….

    Cheers from Ralph aka Draaiorgelfan!

  56. 56

    To the other Maria – Maria Jensen:

    About that letter you got from Mike Schnitzer…

    HE is not your boss. YOU are! And I’ll send an equal eMail to you with the same details.

    Keep a-posting, Maria. Cheers with blessings from Ralph!

  57. 57

    To ‘rememberthe70s’: I’ll leave that opinion to everyone who heard the song since its release last year. I heard of the song just THIS year, and before Christmas I’ll look for the CD with “You Skinny Hebrew” included. I’m not into Apple/iTunes, and I don’t download music into my PC. That action can be troublesome. Also expensive!

    Cheers from Ralph!

  58. 58

    Ir’s great, I look forward to visiting occasionally.

  59. 59
