In Memory of John Lennon …. “Dared to Imagine …. SENSELESS LOSS …. “!!

~~December 9, 2019~~


On the evening of 8 December 1980, English musician John Lennon, formerly of the Beatles, was fatally shot in the archway of the Dakota, his residence in New York City.

The void is still felt.

We will always wonder ‘what if‘ …

Having his family, friends and fans in our hearts.


John Winston Ono Lennon, MBE was an English singer, songwriter and peace activist who gained worldwide fame as the founder, co-lead vocalist, and rhythm guitarist of the Beatles.

His songwriting partnership with Paul McCartney remains the most successful in history.

“Saturday Night Live flatters Jennifer Lopez, who sort of deserves it”

A proud jewel in the Puerto Rican crown/universe … “her diva star power comes yoked to actual talents.”

Repeating Islands

jlo-snl-2019-thatgrapejuice-600x358Dennis Perkins (A.V. Club) reviews Jennifer López’s guest appearance on Saturday Night Live (SNL) emphasizing her talents and beauty. Comparing J Lo to Raquel Welsh, Perkins explains that “her diva star power comes yoked to actual talents.” I agree with his reference to her Oscar-worthiness, “Her performance in Hustlers might not eclipse her still-stellar turn in 1998’s Out Of Sight, but she’s getting the Oscar buzz.” However, I would add to this her outstanding performance in the much-maligned 2003 film Gigli (which received a 6% on Rotten Tomatoes and was called “Abominable” by many—but check her amazing monologue). Perkins provides a very entertaining read that includes clips of several SNL skits—the best and the worst. I needed a good laugh today, and this certainly helped!

Jennifer Lopez is 50. That’d be a rude thing to start of a review with, if Jennifer Lopez hadn’t come out for…

The Journey of Mallorcas, Puerto Rico’s Legendary Breakfast Buns

MALLORCAS!! … I grew up with them!! … “From Spain to Puerto Rico and beyond, the legacy of these sweet, spiral breads is still on the move.”

Repeating Islands

mallorcas[Many thanks to Elba Morales Rivera for bringing this item to our attention.] Just when I was feeling homesick, here comes an article on the historical trajectory of Puerto Rico’s Mallorca buns. Illyana Maisonet writes (for Saveur), “From Spain to Puerto Rico and beyond, the legacy of these sweet, spiral breads is still on the move.” They certainly did. For a while, I saw that they were being sold at a local Starbucks, here in the Hudson Valley. Unfortunately, no one seemed to know that without heating and the pat of butter mentioned below, mallorcas can be dry and unappetizing. Enjoy Maisonet’s description and historical account below (for the original article, see Saveur).

In my kitchen in Oakland, California, I preheated my cast-iron comal and slipped a pat of butter onto the surface. I’d just gotten home from New Orleans, where at an artisanal bakery I’d purchased a

Decency on Display at Hearing Today

I’m re-blogging is a bit behind the time if happened … but this was historical!! … “There are wonderful and decent people working for the American people. Maria Yovanovitch is one of those decent people.”

On The Fence Voters

Hint: Not from the President of the United States

Soon out here in the Pacific Northwest, the weekend will officially begin. The wife will come home from work, we’ll crack open a cold IPA and discuss a bit about what happened in Trumpworld today.

I hadn’t planned on weighing in because I didn’t know if I’d have the time. But something occurred to me and I wanted to briefly share it with you.

As you’re hopefully ready to enjoy the upcoming weekend, I’d like to leave you with a word that kept coming into my head as I watched Ambassador Maria Yovanovitch testify today: D E C E N C Y.

Why that word? Simply put, the current President of the United States does not have a lick of it in his body. We see it every day through his tweets or press interactions. We’re nearly three years into his…
