In 1979, pianist and vocalist Lee St.Clair Gabor opened The Cellar Door Piano Bar on Stella Link in Houston, Texas. Each month a party was held to celebrate the birthdays of customers and staff. They became the "Cellar Door Family." The parties were held according to dates of astrological sun signs. To add to the fun, Lee wrote parody songs for each sign and for astrology in general. The parodies could be sung to the tunes of old sing-along melodies. Lists of the birthdays of famous people were given out. For this book, some birthdays have been added. Lee left The Cellar Door in 1983 and later moved to Dallas, Texas, where she used the parodies for private parties. Music for the sing-along tunes is not included.

About the Author
I am first and foremost inquisitive, always wanting to know what goes on globally and locally and wanting to understand WHY! Being a newspaper reporter was the career with which I began. Then, as a pianist and vocalist, I spent a number of years entertaining throughout the U.S. I also owned a talent agency during that time. After those 25 years, my next career was in public education, which was something I never intended to do. Getting "drafted" into teaching and the time I spent as an Academic Coordinator were very interesting and I do so love the students and teachers, administrators, and staff members I met. I'm very proud of our students. After six years, I left teaching and moved near my son and his family. I became a Master Gardener and Master Composter, joined local organizations, and have been able to enjoy more time with my children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. I am thrilled that my professional focus now is limited to writing. I will be publishing both fiction and non-fiction works and begin that in new venture in 2012.
