HOMEMADE COQUITO

This is a Puerto Rican staple for Christmas. We’ve had several batches made.

It’s sweet, yummy and mandatory!

Coquito meaning “Little Coconut” in Spanish is a traditional Christmas drink that originated in Puerto Rico. The coconut-based alcoholic beverage is similar to eggnog, sometimes being called the Puerto Rican Eggnog.

NEW YEAR

Here’s hoping that hope arrives in the much needed change that the whole world needs. Here’s hoping the the very much healing can be attained. Here’s hoping that goodness and good will prevail.

I believe there’s a lot of work to be done. We have to do it together.

That’s the only way!

From our house to yours …

Yes, 2020 is finally over, but we can’t forget what we went through, what has been lost, the people we have lost, and the work we need to do to ensure we never have another year like 2020 or another corrupt fascist in our White House again.

#Fuckers …. she was totally correct in describing them using this word!! … “When you get that $600 relief check, remember…it could have been $2,000 but Mitch McConnell stopped it. And all the other Republicans in the Senate helped prevent you from receiving more help by not forcing McConnell to help you.”

The quote in the cartoon is direct from the tortoise’s mouth.

If you make $70,000 a year or less, you’re getting a $600 check from the government. This is a stimulus to help you get through the pandemic. Does $600 help? Sure…a little. If you’re like me, that’s not even a month’s rent. If you’re a single mom with two kids, that might be your month’s food budget. Nobody’s going to refuse $600, but it’s a joke to think that’ll solve anyone’s financial woes. If you’re months behind on rent and facing eviction, $600 might get your landlord to leave you alone…for a day. He’ll be back tomorrow.

Americans need real help and what we have been hoping for is a $2,000 stimulus check. That’s not going to solve everything either, but 2,000 is more than 600. Even Donald Trump is pushing Congress to increase the stimulus to 2,000. Now…

Lightly Child, Lightly


Daybreak … “Yesterday was one of those “amazingly quiet (and spectacularly beautiful) mornings” where “the wind seemed to love everything.”

Live & Learn

The wind is careless—

uncertain—

I like the wind—

it seems more like me than anything else—

I like the way it blows things around—roughly—even meanly—

then the next minute seems to love everything—some days is amazingly quiet.

—  Georgia O’Keeffe, in a letter to Alfred Stieglitz on October 1, 1917 in: ”My Faraway One. Selected Letters of Georgia O’Keeffe and Alfred Stieglitz. Volume 1, 1915–1933

Buh-Bye, Blubber


One of the best things about 2020 ending!! … “Anyway, it doesn’t matter how much orange blubber there is, on January 20, it’s gone. Buh-bye, blubber.”

I know. I know. Donald Trump weighs more than 243 pounds, but I’m going with what his doctor claims.

When I came up with this idea (while trying to get one on another subject, as usual), my first thought was on how much to list his weight. I do my research so I looked up the last lie that came from his physical and it’s listed at 243. We all know that’s a lie. If you have eyes, you know that’s a lie.

Political cartoons do make fun of people’s appearances but that should never be the point (even though I made an entire cartoon recently on Kelly Loeffler’s extremely long neck). But the rules on making fun of someone’s weight can change depending upon their character. Like, if they’re just generally a rotten human being, you can make fun of their weight. If they made fun of other people’s…
