A Picture Says a Thousand Words …. “🤦🏽‍♀️ This One, a Cartoon, Screams, #119 …. ‘Hawking Beans’ 🤦🏽‍♀️ …. “!!

~~July 16, 2020~~


By now you must know about the hoopla related to Goya beans!!

This is one who kinds hits close to home because I grew up on the Goya products. As of the CEO’s statements, whenever they we stated, my household is now definitely a Goya-free zone.

Anyway, it was totally galling to see both Trumps attempt to appropriate this as a matter of self-centered, putting the light on them.

Another reason to abhor and loathe them more, if possible.

Added two picture meme which I find appropriate!


Ivanka Trump Promotes Can of Goya Beans, Violates Ethics Standards

The Trump family has long struggled in their promotion of food products – and even their efforts to make menu items look vaguely edible – but that didn’t stop Ivanka Trump from endorsing a can of Goya Foods black beans on Tuesday night.

The post came in response to boycotts of the brand and social media outrage from consumers and some Hispanic leaders after the company’s CEO Robert Unanue praised Trump in a Rose Garden event last week.

“We are all truly blessed … to have a leader like Trump who is a builder,” Unanue said. “We have an incredible builder, and we pray. We pray for our leadership, our president.”

Mask Conspiracy

#WearAMask … “Conservatives still don’t get it. They think wearing the mask is a personal choice. They think if you feel safe, then you shouldn’t be forced to wear a mask. But it’s not your choice to infect me. MAGAts still don’t understand how the virus is spread. Wear a mask, you stupid motherfuckers. Wear a mask! Wear a mask! Wear a mask! Wear a mask, goddammit!”



The grocery store I shop at the most in-person is Giant which is in my neighborhood. It’s not the most uppity place in the world, like a Whole Foods, nor is it like an Aldi (where I have groceries delivered from) where there aren’t a lot of name brands (instead of Cheerios, you get Cheery Oats or something like that). Giant is a nice clean place with fair prices and most of the customers aren’t nose pickers and they look like the kind of people who bathe daily, and yet even Giant can’t convince all their customers to wear a face mask.

In Virginia, face masks are required at every business. Giant has signs that forbid shopping without a face mask yet, every time you go in there, you will see fuckers without face masks. I didn’t want to start any trouble, but me being me, as I was walking…

Struggling with Latinos, Trump hypes Goya food fight

I’m Hispanic … I’m Puerto Rican. I grew up with Goya!! He doesn’t have and NEVER will have my vote. He doesn’t know Hispanics at all … nor does he care!! … All show, as always!! … ““It’s a complete misstep. In the long run, it will end up backfiring,” Barreto said. “People are going to realize he’s not sincere about this effort and that that’s the sort of window dressing he’s offering Latino voters: ‘hey, I’m friends with the guy who sells black beans in a can.’

Repeating Islands


A report by Marc Caputo for Politico.

It’s the latest cultural wedge issue in an effort to persuade Hispanic voters that the left is too radical.

The culture war is officially a food fight.

For the past week, Latinos have warred on social media after the CEO of Goya Foods effusively praised President Trump at a White House event. Democraticcritics like Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez called for a boycott and other liberals posted social media videos of themselves dumping the iconic brand’s signature spices down the drain. Conservatives fumed about cancel culture or mocked the boycott on Facebook with memes like “Black Beans Matter.”

On Wednesday, Trump fueled the controversy, posting an Instagram image of his trademarked thumbs up sign of approval as he sat in the Oval Office with an array of Goya products in front of him — appearing to provide an endorsement to a private company…

Meet Martin van der L …. “💞 ‘My Brother from Another Mother’ 💞 …. “!!

~~July 6, 2020~~



Meet Martin. I meet him a few years ago (maybe 5-6) through the wonderful world of blogging. I started blogging after my retirement. Somehow, our blogs connected and we have stayed in contact since.

He’s an unique human being who lives in Utrecht, Netherlands. Since we connected, he’s helped me in many, many ways … in the world of blogging, computing, Snopes and truly in a personal way. He’s a rock I can count on in spite of the physical distance. We’ve never met in person but we message back and forth. I’ve heard his voice only a few times. I can feel the special qualities he possesses and I treasure this friendship as one in a million!

He has an incredible story that I would like to share with you.

He doesn’t know I’m doing this but he will find out soon.

Anyway, I don’t think he will mind because he shared with me a wonderful video that was filmed as part of a program in his country.


This is Lijda van der Louw-Elbertsen. his Queen, his wife, his life!

Married since June 22, 1999.

#TBT …. “💞 ThrowBack Thursday …. ‘Two Together Through Time’ 💞 …. “!!

~~July 16, 2020~~


This is a story that began in the late 1940s and early 1950s.

Two girls born on the same island but in different zones. One moved to the USA as a 12 year old, the other stayed behind ann grew up there.

In 1969, they were in college and by a strike of luck, one returned to the island and they met.

Life was simple and innocent, it was awesome. But it got in the way until 1996 where life came full circle.

Together since then!
