James Corden …. “🎼🎼 Crosswalk the Musical: Hair with Lin-Manuel Miranda 🎼🎼 …. Hilarious …. “!!


~~August 21, 2017~~ 



Once again, during these times of angst and almost despair, humor, music and fun will help take the edge off.

James has managed to do it for me, at least momentarily.

Please, take a bit of your precious time and watch this awesome skit!



Lin-Manuel Miranda gets naked with James Corden for wild Hair musical

As James Corden says:

“It’s one thing to be on a stage, air conditioning, Broadway, lights.

It’s another thing when people are shouting obscenities out of a window at you because they don’t get it.”

This is the high-stakes, make-or-break world of Crosswalk Theater, and Hamilton‘s Lin-Manuel Miranda got a taste of it.

For the big finale, Corden and Miranda did what no one thought they could do:

dance nude on the crosswalk.

“In the original production of Hair, the entire cast got naked, but both CBS and the state of California told us we can’t be nude in the crosswalk,” Miranda explained.

“Then again, people told me that Alexander Hamilton wasn’t a Puerto Rican rapper with beautiful brown eyes.”

This Is Exactly What You Need to Hear Today

I follow The Piano Guys faithfully.

I’ve even seen them perform live.

It was an amazing experience.

Scrolling through the pages of my ‘internet’,

I noticed some incredibly awesome news.

They have a new CD on the way.

Yesterday, they posted a new video.

I hope you enjoy it!

Story behind the song

We’ve all had that phone call. That email or that message. That conversation.

Bad news.

We’re all struggling with something – a debilitating weakness or illness. Or someone we love is barely holding on. We watch the news. We see the tweets, the Facebook posts. The YouTube comments!

We hear about hate, terror, and despair. But just because what sells, what goes “viral,” or what gets attention may try to drown out the good in the world, it doesn’t mean that goodness is gone. Just because choruses of controversy and scandal shout louder than quiet symphonies of service, it doesn’t mean that inside most of us still genuinely want happiness not only for ourselves, but also our family, our friends, and our fellow human beings.

Media can make the world look bleak.

They’ve given themselves this job description, in part because there’s a darker side on the surface of human nature that feeds on fear and cynicism. But deep down, we are beings of light. And in the end, since darkness is merely the absence of light, light will inevitably overcome dark.

This is the essence of hope. And the essence of this song.

“No matter what you’ve been through, no matter if you think you’re falling apart, it’s gonna be okay.”

Maybe not today. Maybe not tomorrow. But we believe that someday, somehow, all things will be made right.

And as the Psalm says, “They that sow in tears shall reap in joy.”


In the meantime, there are so many more things to hope for and to work at while we yearn for the outcome we want so badly – more gratitude for what we have, more love for those we’ve taken for granted, more faith in ourselves and those we hold dear, and more confidence in a Divine purpose.

We felt like the best way to spread the message of this song was to supplement our standard classically-influenced instrumental niche with a more pop-driven tune featuring Al’s superb vocal skills.

As Oscar Hammerstein once said:

“It is a modern tragedy that despair has so many spokesmen, and hope so few.”

Please share this song with someone you think might need it today.

Thank you!

To start the day …. “The Power of One”!!


~~January 15, 2015~~ 

This video has been presented before in this blog.

The message is so intense, real and to the point that we wish to share it again. I read a post by Mavadelo this morning which reminded me of this video. A previous post about perpetual war has taken me down the path that something needs to happen to change our world. They say …. “be the change”.  

It all has to be at the personal level. Many times it seem like an impossible task. Many times despair, doubt and disappointment set in. Yet … what will happen if we give up. The battle to improve is endless and against immense foes.

Never give up!

“You are one. You are unique. You are important. You are special.

One song can spark a moment. One flower can wake the dream. One tree can start a forest. One bird can herald spring. One smile begins a friendship. One handclasp lifts a soul. One star can guide a ship at sea. One word can set the goal. One vote can change a nation. One sunbeam can light a room. One candle wipes out darkness. One laugh will conquer gloom. On step starts each journey. One word must start each prayer. One hope will raise our spirits. One touch can show you care. One voice can speak with wisdom. One heart can know what’s true. One life can make the difference.

It’s up to you. Be bold. Be courageous. Be proud. Be yourself. 

Learn. Grow. Teach. Dream. Inspire. Explore. Hope. Pray. Listen. Create. Help. Serve. Motivate. Discover. Share. Believe. Achieve. Wonder. Pursue. Love. Protect. Experience.

You can make a difference.

Pass it on ….. “

(The song used in this video is called “My Name is Lincoln” by Steve Jablonsky.)

“Tyler Blaine Genneken was the inspiration in making this video. Tyler was a young boy in our community in Indiana, who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia in the Summer of 2006. After a 40 month battle with Cancer, sadly he passed away. He was 14 years old. Before Tyler died, his story and his request that others help him fight Cancer, resulted in hundreds of units of blood being donated, and more than 2,000 people joining “Be The Match” (the national bone marrow registry). He is a Hero.”

Charitable Organizations to care for our veterans …. Anyone else wonder?

~~January 3, 2015~~ 

Veterans, Inc.

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) is working diligently to take care of homeless veterans, but the scope of the problem is so vast that no one agency can do it alone. Eradicating homelessness among veterans requires partnerships between a myriad of government and private entities. Think of it like the American Cancer Society or the American Lung Association. While the government funds a considerable amount of medical research, those organizations have existed for years because of the general public’s desire to see even more done in the fight against killer diseases.

In our case, the fight is against homelessness and the despair, PTSD, substance abuse and other factors that contribute to homelessness. If you agree that veterans facing these life-threatening challenges, many the result of serving in combat, deserve more help than the government can provide, we ask you to contribute.

New Report Reveals Nation Still Not Fully Equipped to Support Women Veterans

While the federal government has raced to establish programs to serve combat veterans, the current system that awaits women transitioning from military service is a disjointed patchwork of programs marked by serious gaps in health care, housing, other community support services, employment and efforts to eradicate sexual assault, according to a landmark report released today by Disabled American Veterans.

“As it appears in …. “


Wounded Warrior Project


A veterans service organization that offers a variety of programs, service and events for wounded veterans of the military actions following the events of September 11, 2001. It operates as a nonprofit 501(C)(3) organization with a mission to “honor and empower Wounded Warriors” of the c, as well as provide services and programs for the family members of its registered “alumni,” as its registered veterans are called.

MEDICAL CORNER …. Care and love!!


~~August 10, 2014~~ 

“The greatest disease in the West today is not TB or leprosy; it is being unwanted, unloved, and uncared for. We can cure physical diseases with medicine, but the only cure for loneliness, despair, and hopelessness is love. There are many in the world who are dying for a piece of bread but there are many more dying for a little love. The poverty in the West is a different kind of poverty — it is not only a poverty of loneliness but also of spirituality. There’s a hunger for love, as there is a hunger for God.”

~~Mother Teresa, A Simple Path: Mother Teresa~~

“We look for medicine to be an orderly field of knowledge and procedure. But it is not. It is an imperfect science, an enterprise of constantly changing knowledge, uncertain information, fallible individuals, and at the same time lives on the line. There is science in what we do, yes, but also habit, intuition, and sometimes plain old guessing. The gap between what we know and what we aim for persists. And this gap complicates everything we do.”

~~Atul Gawande, Complications: A Surgeon’s Notes on an Imperfect Science~~


“I have been practicing medicines for 30 years
and I have prescribed many things
but in the long run I have learned that
the best medicine for human creature is “CARE and LOVE”
Someone asked , if it doesn’t work?
He smiled and answered “INCREASE THE DOSE”

At the end of the day …. light at the end of the tunnel!!


~~August 4, 2014~~ 

The light at the end of the tunnel is a figure of speech that refers to an expectation of hope that circumstances will improve after weathering a difficult situation.


“Believe that there’s light at the end of the tunnel. Believe that you might be that light for someone else.”

~~Kobi Yamada~~

“There’s light at the end of the tunnel. The problem is that tunnel is in the back of your mind. And if you don’t go to the back side of your mind you will never see the light at the end of the tunnel. And once you see it, then the task becomes to empower it in yourself and other people. Spread it as a reality. God did not retire to the seventh heaven, God is some kind of lost continent IN the human mind.” 

~~Terence McKenna~~

“Sometimes life seems a dark tunnel with no light at the end, but if you just keep moving forward, you will end up in a better place.”

~~Jeffrey Fry~~


“If you do not see light at the end of the tunnel, consider it an opportunity to create an opening yourself, wherever you want.”

~~Ashok Kallarakkal~~

“Remember, the light at the end of the tunnel may be you.”


“When there’s no way out, you just follow the way in front of you.”

~~Stephen Mitchell~~







Hope is an optimistic attitude of mind based on an expectation of positive outcomes related to events and circumstances in one’s life or the world at large. As a verb, its definitions include: “expect with confidence” and “to cherish a desire with anticipation”.

Among its opposites are dejection, hopelessness and despair.
