Affordable Auto Parts

Auto Parts

 

High gas prices for your auto are the talk of the town. Have you been by a gas station lately? But what are you going to do? If you don’t have access to public transportation or some other form to get to school or work, you need your car. You have got to have gas to put in your vehicle to get around so you pay the price. They’ve got you over the barrel. You have exactly two options, you buy it or you don’t. I have an older model car and besides gas, it takes a little bit more to keep it on the road. My trial and error can benefit you. I have good news when it comes to auto parts. There is an alternative to the higher priced dealership parts. At OEM Car Parts you can find variety of auto parts, car parts, truck parts, import parts, performance parts and automotive accessories. They can provide original equipment parts and aftermarket parts for your vehicle. Why would you use OEM Auto Parts where you are assured of good quality auto parts at wholesale prices?

BOURBON STREET PARADE 3 TITO MARTINO 1983

“BOURBON STREET PARADE” was recorded by a public TV in the last performance of clarinetist Tito Martino with the Traditional Jazz Band, just before he changed his residence to Swiss in 1983. Martino started, named and lead the Traditional Jazz Band for 20 years. This is certainly one of the best performances of this band, one which all their members can feel proud of. At this time, Carlos Lima was at trumpet (he’s out now) Bruno Christen trombone (he is now living in Swiss) Tito Martino clarinet, sop.sax, altosax and leader, Edo Callia piano, Dudu Bugni banjo and guitar, Carlos Chaim bass, and Alcides Lima drums and washboard. Tito came back to São Paulo in 1993 and plays with his new group, the TITO MARTINO JAZZ BAND.

Mr. Carriere and Knucklehead

New Orleans

When you come to the New Orleans French Quarter you can’t help but notice the colorful mule drawn carriages throughout the Quarter streets. A relaxing buggy ride is often just the thing for foot weary sight seers, history buffs or romantic couples who want to snuggle a little closer than walking will allow.

These rides also include a narrated tour of the historic French Quarter and the renowned “Cities of the Dead”. No matter how much I think I know about New Orleans there is always more I don’t know. I love visiting with a particular buggy driver and his sidekick, Knucklehead. A virtual walking history book this guy knows his stuff. With thirty-five years of being a NOLA tour guide under his belt Mr. Carriere is as much a Big Easy attraction as the landmarks people flock to the Crescent City to see.

Twelve bucks for a thirty minute ride with someone who knows the streets and the stories as well as Mr. Carriere and Knucklehead is a hell of a deal. If you have never done the buggy ride thing or even if you have, treat yourself to a half hour with a favorite French Quarter fixture. Let Mr. Carriere take you on a scenic ride and regale you with NOLA tales of the past and present. Look for the lavender colored buggy parked in front of Jackson Square, feed Knucklehead a carrot and take in the sights and sounds of the historic Vieux Carre’ with a master storyteller.

The cadence of Knucklehead’s hoofs and timbre of Mr. Carriere’s voice are perfect compliments to the cacophony of sounds that resonant through the French Quarter. With plenty of tours to choose from this one covers all the bases. Informative but interesting, entertaining and amusing this is definitely one for your New Orleans “To Do” list. Enjoy the ride!
