VICTORY TOUR/EGO TRIP

I couldn’t believe it when I saw the news last night.

Hey, then again … you can expect anything from this clown.

He proved it during the campaign!

Some say, give him a chance, you don’t know what he will do.

Well, I respond to that … leopards don’t change their spots.

Trump victory tour: ‘Thank you’ or ‘ego’ trip?

Donald Trump is the first president-elect ever known to go on a nationwide victory tour, which kicks off this week in a key swing state that helped the real estate mogul pull off his surprise victory.

The Republican is scheduled to be at U.S. Bank Arena at 7 p.m. Thursday for a campaign-like rally. Vice President-elect Mike Pence is scheduled to attend the kickoff of what the Trump campaign is calling the “USA Thank You Tour.”

( … after the Carrier Company ‘business deal’ is settled … )

(Look it up!)

Political experts aren’t surprised Trump is taking a victory lap before his inauguration on Jan. 20, nor that he’s launching the tour in Ohio.

Watched last Monday’s, May 16, episode.

It was a hard decision.

All five contestants did a good job.

Any of them have the potential to be in the finals.

At the end of the episode three couples remain to battle it out next week.

All are deserving of the title of champion and receiving the mirrored ball.

It was almost a five-way tie heading into tonight’s semi-finals on Dancing With the Stars but that doesn’t mean it hurts any less that we had to lose not one but TWO couples after such a solid night of dancing.

It hurt pretty badly, to be honest.

Everyone brought their A-game, but unfortunately, despite Antonio Brown losing his shirt (we hope he never finds it again) and Wanya Morris continuing to be an awesome bundle of positive, happy energy, both of them went home.

That means we’ll see Nyle DiMarco and Peta Murgatroyd, Ginger Zee and  Val Chmerkovskiy, and Paige VanZant and Mark Ballas competing for the Mirrorball Trophy in next week’s finals.

HOPEFUL

Hopeful, hopeful,
That’s the feeling I get when I hear her name.
Not knowing when;
Or why she has chosen me.
But knowing in my heart that I will never let her down.
Condescending;
Of all these ideas I have of her.
My walk with her has been one I’ll never forget;
I will not
Loose her.
In all the chaos in this world,
She is the one I seek  for guidance
Please, never let me go.
Forever with her,
I am,
Hopeful!

The last few days have been harrowing and mind-boggling. The security of what we know as our life, our world and our safety has been shaken to the core.

We frequently think:

“It won’t happen to me, it won’t happen here, it won’t happen to us.”

The only thing that we know for sure is that life, as we know it, can change in a flash.

Here’s a balm, a beautiful song to transport us to a warm, beautiful place …. if only for a moment.

WHAT HORROR WE HAVE AWAKENED TO 

Paris Attacks Kill More Than 100, Police Say; Border Controls Tighter

The Paris area reeled Friday night, November 13, 2015, from a shooting rampage, explosions and mass hostage-taking that President François Hollande called an unprecedented terrorist attack on France. His government announced sharply increased border controls and heightened police powers as it mobilized the military in a national emergency.

French television and news services quoted the police as saying that around 100 people had been killed at a concert site where hostages had been held during a two-hour standoff with the police, and that perhaps dozens of others had been killed in apparently coordinated attacks outside the country’s main sports stadium and four other popular locations in the city.

But estimates on the total number of dead varied.

TODAY IS FRIDAY THE 13TH

My black kitty was a rescue from the street.

From the beginning, she was a handful.

At the beginning. we couldn’t decide on her name.

Options included Panther, Midnight, Blackie.

My favorite was “Double Trouble” which remains her official name.

However, the grand-kids decided on “Kitty” (easier for them) and she answers to that.

We firmly believe that she thinks she’s a dog.

Her behavior, even thought basically cat-like has definite signs of canine.

Several times, we’ve thought about giving her away, finding her a new home, taking her to the pound.

Yet, with the help of friends, we have come to terms with her and she has become part of the family and she will remain as such.

Have a good Friday, the 13th …. from Kitty.

CHILDHOOD CONNECTIONS

We all have our childhood memories …

the favorite bear, the softest furry friend, our neighborhood, our childhood friends, the house were we lived in, a tree house in out back yard.

Those memories are forever etched in our minds.

We also remember the times when we may have had the need to leave those behind.

For a child, this can be difficult and maybe even devastating.

But … would you think it could also be the same for the “object/memory” we are leaving behind?

~~November 11, 2015~~ 

THE RED CUP THAT WON’T GO AWAY

According to Starbucks, the holiday cup began in 1997 with a “jazz-themed design in jewel tones of deeper reds, greens and blues.” Each year since then, the coffee giant’s holiday cups return, and have become a corporate tradition in the process.

The cups make the transition from plain white to holiday-themed in November; this year they changed over on November 3.

Ellen’s Hilarious Response to the Red Cup Controversy

Over the weekend, Starbucks introduced new plain red “holiday” cups, which prompted some serious backlash from people who called the move part of the “War on Christmas” in America, and an overall assault on Christianity. It raised such a controversy that even presidential candidate Donald Trump addressed it.

Comedian Ellen Degeneres also had something to say about the holiday cups during the airing of “Ellen,” on Tuesday, November 10, 2-15.

“The old cups had snowflakes and santa’s sleigh and elves. You know, all the things you find in the Bible,” Ellen joked.

RedLineBElSipRedLineB

PROOF THAT THERE’S NO “WAR ON CHRISTMAS”

Starbucks released a statement addressing the controversy, saying in part that diversity and inclusion are important to the coffee company:

“Creating a culture of belonging, inclusion and diversity is one of the core values of Starbucks, and each year during the holidays the company aims to bring customers an experience that inspires the spirit of the season,” the statement from Starbucks continued.

“Starbucks will continue to embrace and welcome customers from all backgrounds and religions in our stores around the world.”

TALE OF THE RED CUPS 

Just when you think you have heard it all, along comes a story that takes the prize.

I’ve always thought that the actual and ever-increasing commercialization of Christmas is too much and too early.

The ads, the decorations, the conversations and disagreements about Christmas start in early autumn, even before Thanksgiving’s had a chance for glory.

The motto: “The War On Christmas“.

This year is no exception and all the hoopla has appeared over the lunatic actions and crazy rants of an “overzealous pastor” whose past actions have been quite questionable.

Here’s a gist of this story. I personally think I wouldn’t want this “pastor guy” representing me in any way.

You decide.

‘War On Christmas’ Apparently Now Being Fought With Coffee Cups

The 2015 holiday season has barely begun and the first shots in the War On Christmas have already been fired in the form of Starbucks coffee cups:

Some people are angry about Starbucks’ new holiday cups. Really angry.

What is the issue, exactly?

In previous years, Starbucks’ iconic holiday cups, which the chain uses in lieu of white cups in November and December, featured wintry or Christmas-themed designs like snowflakes, ornaments and nature scenes. This year, the cups are more minimalist – a red ombre design that Jeffrey Fields, Starbucks’ vice president of design, said was meant to embrace “the simplicity and the quietness” of the holiday season.

This is a huge problem for some people, who feel that the plain red cups are oppressing Christians by insulting Christmas.

“This is a denial of historical reality and the great Christian heritage behind the American Dream that has so benefited Starbucks,” Andrea Williams of the U.K.-based organization Christian Concern told Breitbart. “This also denies the hope of Jesus Christ and His story so powerfully at this time of year.”

To clarify, it’s not like the previous cups were decked out in crosses and mangers. It’s unclear why a drawing of a winking snowman or a dog sledding, for instance, is more “Christian” than a plain red and green (you know, Christmas colors) cup.

But either way, angry Starbucks patrons have a solution.

Former pastor Joshua Feuerstein claimed in a viral Facebook video that he had “pranked” Starbucks by simply telling them his name was “Merry Christmas” — thus forcing the surely unimpressed barista to write the words “Merry Christmas” on the cup.

JoshB

Feuerstein also noted that he brought a gun into the coffee shop, in spite of Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz’ request that patrons leave their firearms at home. Ho ho, good one!

In the video, Feuerstein encouraged people to similarly claim that their names are “Merry Christmas” and to use the hashtag #MerryChristmasStarbucks. Social media users have been expressing their support for the “prank.”

While this entire “War On Christmas” meme is obviously ridiculous, especially since if there is a “war” on Christmas it’s obvious that Christmas has one judging by the fact that the “holiday” season seems to start earlier and earlier every year, it is part of a larger phenomenon on the right that plays itself out on the political stage.

Did Starbucks Just Declare A ‘War On Christmas’ With Red Cups?

~Published on Nov 9, 2015~

Is Starbucks declaring a war on Christmas?

A guy on the internet named Joshua Feuerstein seems to think so. Conservatives coined the “War on Christmas” about a decade ago, claiming religious persecution when, for example, someone opts to use the all-inclusive phrase ‘Happy Holidays’ instead of ‘Merry Christmas.’

PUERTO RICO FROM THE AIR

I found this page browsing through Facebook.

The accompanying video was presented as a thank you and recognition for continued visits and views to their page.

I can not begin to say how proud this makes me!

I feel nostalgic for my country.

I haven’t been back for a few years.

I go back home through the awesome videos this page.

I even see places that I have never been to or even knew that existed in my own country.

This is an amazing job that the ones presenting and administering this page ad their own website are doing.

It means a lot to those of us who are away from home.

My country is so beautiful.

It’s the “Pearl of the Caribbean” (“Perla Del Caribe”).

It doesn’t matter the hardships that it’s going through now. The spirit of the people is still there.

Their kindness, their knowledge, their love .. they are all there.

I’m so proud to be a Puerto Rican!!

I invite you to take a trip with me.

Puerto Rico, officially the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (Spanish: Estado Libre Asociado de Puerto Rico, literally the “Free Associated State of Puerto Rico”), is a United States territory located in the northeastern Caribbean.

Puerto Rico is an archipelago that includes the main island of Puerto Rico and a number of smaller islands. The capital and largest city isSan Juan. The territory does not observe daylight saving time, and its official languages are Spanish, which is predominant, and English. The island’s population is approximately 3.6 million.

Puerto Rico’s rich history, tropical climate, diverse natural scenery and renowned traditional cuisine make it a popular destination for visitors from around the world. Its location in the Caribbean, combined with centuries of colonization and subsequent migration, has made Puerto Rican culture a distinct melting pot of Amerindian, Spanish, African and North American influences.
