‘Thoughts and Prayers’ …. “😡 Every Time it Happens …. Over and Over and Over …. Blood Money 😡 …. “!!


There’s not much more I can add.

The video explains itself.

Tired of this vicious cycle of repetitive violence and death.

It’s time for action … not thoughts and prayers!

Hallelujah

YET ANOTHER ‘HALLELUJAH’ COVER

CHILL FACTOR

Music for the Soul

As I’ve said before, for some unknown reason, covers of this song keep ‘popping up’.

My tattoo artist, Stacy, showed this cover to me three days ago.

This song soothes my raw feelings.

It calms me, it centers me.

In the days after another mass shooting in Florida, this song comes to mind.

This song has attained a new meaning in my personal musical library.

It reminds me of so much …

Jeffrey Scott Buckley (November 17, 1966 – May 29, 1997), raised as Scott Moorhead, was an American singer-songwriter and guitarist. After a decade as a session guitarist in Los Angeles, Buckley amassed a following in the early 1990’s by playing cover songs at venues in Manhattan’s East Village, such as Sin-é, gradually focusing more on his own material.

In 2004, Rolling Stone Magazine listed him at number 39 on their list of greatest singers of all time. In 1997, Buckley moved to Memphis, Tennessee, to resume work on the album, to be titled My Sweetheart the Drunk, recording many four-track demos while also playing weekly solo shows at a local venue.

On May 29, 1997, while awaiting the arrival of his band from New York, he drowned during a spontaneous evening swim, fully clothed, in the Mississippi River when he was caught in the wake of a passing boat; his body was found on June 4.

Jeff Buckley

Well I’ve heard there was a secret chord
That David played and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do you?
Well it goes like this:
The fourth, the fifth, the minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah
Hallelujah

Well your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew ya
She tied you to her kitchen chair
And she broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from your lips she drew the Hallelujah …

Composite Photo …. “🇵🇷 Honoring my country, Puerto Rico 🇵🇷 …. ‘Proud Boricua Woman’ …. “!!

HONORING PUERTO RICO

Some of you may know, others not.

I am a fan of tattoos, having a few of them myself.

I’m also Puerto Rican, born and raised, living in the mainland.

Since September 20, 2017, when Hurricane María battered and almost flattened my country, my personal feelings have come to the surface.

My heart and soul ache for Puerto Rico.

Yesterday, I visited my tattoo artist.

I had an idea in my mind but Stacy showed me her idea and this is what she came up with.

I instantly fell in love with this image.

This is a proud Boricua woman, holding her head up high, ready to hold her stand and give the good fight. This happens in Puerto Rico every minute of every day.

The fortitude of the Puerto Rican woman has been tested during the trying times since the hurricane. 

There are still some details and colors to be added to the artwork.

I wanted to share this with you today.

 More will follow when completed.

Tencha, you rock!

That looks like a Puerto Rican statue of liberty on steroids.

💟 💟 💟

Comes to mind the last part of “En La Brecha“, de José de Diego.

Jeannette P.

My Facebook friend saw the image and commented as noted above.

I asked her about “En La Brecha” and here it is.

Jose

~En La Brecha~
Poema

José de Diego
¡Ah desgraciado si el dolor te abate,
si el cansancio tus miembros entumece!
Haz como el árbol seco: reverdece
y como el germen enterrado: late.

Resurge, alienta, grita, anda, combate,
vibra, ondula, retruena, resplandece …
Haz como el río con la lluvia: ¡Crece!
Y como el mar contra la roca: ¡Bate!

De la tormenta al iracundo empuje,
no has de balar, como el cordero triste,
sino rugir, como la fiera ruge.

¡Levántate!, ¡Revuélvete!, ¡Resiste!
Haz como el toro acorralado: ¡Muge!
O como el toro que no muge: ¡Embiste!

Steve Irwin Family …. “Returning to Animal Planet …. ‘🐊 Dad was a SuperHero’ …. ‘Crocodile Hunter’ 🐊 …. “!!

~Steve Irwin’s family returns to Animal Planet 11 years after his Death~

No question: Animals are the Irwin family business.

That’s why we’re so excited to learn that Terri, Bindi and Robert Irwin are returning to create shows and projects for Animal Planet, 11 years after the tragic death of family patriarch Steve.

According to a press release, the Irwins will be global ambassadors for Discovery Communications, which owns Animal Planet. On the channel, they will develop and produce television projects.

The youngest Irwins (Robert is 13, Bindi, 19) basically have their interest in animals and most especially crocodiles in the blood. Their parents, Steve and Terri, made footage of themselves trapping crocodiles on their honeymoon for a special that aired in Australia in 1996. “The Crocodile Hunter” became an international sensation for Animal Planet, which aired the series from 1996-2007.

Lin-Manuel Miranda Releases Salsa Remix of “Almost Like Praying
The song was first released in October 2017 to raise funds for disaster relief in Puerto Rico.

GoldSwirl

This is what makes Puerto Ricans Puerto Ricans.

The undying spirit against adversity. My heart and soul have been aching since Hurricane María battered my country. The days after have been sadder as images come out of the utter devastation of a beautiful Caribbean Island.

The Puerto Rican spirit is battered but not broken after Maria.

At 10:30am this morning, Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda released a salsa remix of “Almost Like Praying,” his single benefiting the Hispanic Federation’s “Unidos” Disaster Relief Fund for hurricane recovery and rebuilding initiatives in Puerto Rico. Spanish Broadcasting System teamed up with Miranda for a world-premiere radio launch of the remix in New York (Mega 97.9FM), Miami (El Nuevo Zol 106.7FM), and Puerto Rico (Estereotempo 96.5FM).

Miranda himself introduced the single, followed by an interview live from the SBS studios in New York City.

“The benefit single ‘Almost Like Praying’ has had tremendous success with audiences worldwide,” said Miranda. “As we now continue to help establish long-term self-sustainable initiatives to rebuild Puerto Rico, we are thrilled to bring this new version to Salsa-music fans. Although it has been over four months since Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico, the island still needs much help to get its most basic infrastructure up and running – including electricity, roads and bridges, healthcare and other vital programs.”

The original “Almost Like Praying” was released for download and streaming on October 6, 2017, and within its first week, hit No. 1 in digital sales in 17 countries. One hundred percent of the proceeds have gone to the Hispanic Federation’s “Unidos” Disaster Relief Fund, which has sponsored hundreds of initiatives to assist in the relief, recovery, and now rebuilding of Puerto Rico, a U.S. territory since 1898.

Tesla Roadster …. “🚗 Rode SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy Rocket Into Space 🚗 …. Yes, it did …. “!!

WHAT WILL HAPPEN TO THE TESLA?

Experts predict smooth sailing – and, ultimately, salvage

The Tesla Roadster that rode SpaceX’s Falcon Heavy rocket into space Tuesday afternoon, February 6, seems poised to overshoot its mark as company CEO Elon Musk tweeted.

Experts nonetheless predicted smooth sailing for the cherry red convertible and the spacesuit-wearing mannequin, Starman, positioned behind the wheel. Even in the asteroid belt, it seems the car is unlikely to encounter anything beyond ultraviolet radiation, cosmic rays and other highly charged particles, and the occasional micrometeroid.

With no oxygen and no water, there’s no chance that the Roadster will rust. But given the ongoing exposure to UV light, the car’s “paint will start to fade over time just as any car does here in Phoenix in the desert,” said Dr. Jim Bell, a planetary scientist at Arizona State University and the president of the Planetary Society.

In a press conference held after the launch, Musk said he expected the car to be “out there in space for maybe millions or billions of years.” But Bell isn’t so sure. He said that at some point – perhaps 50 to 100 years from now – it will be “a juicy target for salvage,” and someone will mount a new space mission to recapture the Roadster and bring it back to Earth.
