can spend two of the WINTER MONTHS up North, here in the Caribbean. It is called, "Designing MY life!" I plan on having this done within
36 months. Each of these units will have 64 year ownership rights, and can later be sold or willed to whomever I want to have them after
my life is over. "  - GEM

Our deepest THANKS to  "GO GRAPHIX"  of East Longmeadow ,
Massachusetts  for the  excellent graphics job  of affixing   the name of the boat  
to the Yacht. Special thanks to Kathy and Dustin!

It was really nice to take 5 days off at the Marina to enjoy the NEW YACHT and
all of its fine amenities. The Marina's  In-ground pool, showers, bathroom
facilities, Wi Fi, Dockside Cable TV were all appreciated. The boat's DVD's,
Fridges, 10K BTU air conditioning,  were wonderful. The Picnic tables and gas
grills  were everywhere. To add to all of this , there are superb restaurants in
quaint  little towns all around Chester. I may buy a home in this area.

As a Piano Teacher of many decades, the Town of Ivoryton was a place where
Pianos were built with IVORY KEYS.  This would work in a lot of ways for me.

The boat is huge and feels like a 50' yacht, and yet it is ONLY 31' in length.
A great time was had by ALL!

-GEM
Sentimental Journey is a song about taking a ride on a TRAIN. The dinner train comes
by the Marina every hour and blows its soulful whistle bringing
you back in time.  Thus, the reason for the name!
IVORY cutting company that was located in
IVORYTON, CT.  Cutting IVORY into COMBS
and later into Piano keys and other objects.
This last weekend, I ate at the IVORY
restaurant with that history.
The story of the PIANO KEY made of IVORY is an interesting one and it has its roots deeply entrenched in Connecticut. With Connecticut's opening up of its trade with the Netherlands
and other countries, IVORY became available enmasse and on the cheap. In Ivoryton and other surrounding towns, the manufacture of turning IVORY into combs was the intial business venture.
About 90% of all IVORY fashioned products came from Connecticut as combs were a huge market in the late 1800's and 1900's. When PIANO MUSIC became PRINTED AND EASY TO GET , the manufacture
of Pianos went through the roof. Sales were huge, and it was seen that the wafer thin Piano keys could be made and used for their strength to make a PIANO KEY TOPS that would withstand the
hammering of daily use. Elephant....walrus...were used to fashion combs.

This led to the decimation of the Elephant for its tusks and the value its tusks presented to entrepreneurs and business people. This also led to immense
SLAVERY issues, as often these HEAVY TUSKS had to be carried HUNDREDS OF MILES to a port city. Thus, slaves were used to traffic the goods to the ports and on to the USA.
To say that many died in this business, is of major consequence as the estimates were huge.

When the depression hit the USA...and other things were invented....grammaphone....and the automobile which moved people out of their homes, the Piano
industry for a while was decimated.  During the wars, manufacturing stopped to put workers to work to aid the war effort.

The effect on business in this area was huge. It employed many imported workers, many from Poland and other countries where the talent for this type of work was available.
With the decimation of the animals, elephants, prices naturally rose to a point where the idea of Plastic for Piano keys was seen as more profitable. The simple fact was
that the CIVIL WAR and the North's claims against slavery down south, had business interests UP NORTH using slavery to transport Ivory.

So, in this writer's opinion, neither the NORTH or the SOUTH had any MORAL high ground to claim. - GEM
