Gilbert Baker (June 2, 1951 – March 31, 2017) was an openly gay American artist and civil rights activist who designed the rainbow flag in 1978. Baker’s flag became widely associated with LGBT rights causes, a symbol of pride that became ubiquitous in the decades since its debut.

The colors on the Rainbow Flag reflect the diversity of the LGBT community.

When Baker raised the first rainbow flags at San Francisco Pride (his group raised two flags at the Civic Center) on June 25, 1978, it had eight colors, each with a symbolic meaning:

Hot Pink: sexuality
Red: life
Orange: healing
Yellow: sunlight
Green: nature
Turquoise: magic/art
Blue: serenity/harmony
Violet: spirit

FLAG OF THE REBEL ALLIANCE

May the Force be with Carrie Fisher and may her rebellious spirit live forever

As a direct reaction to the formation of the Galactic Empire, the Alliance insurgency conducted covert operations on Imperial garrison-worlds and guerrilla warfare against the Imperial Fleet throughout the Star Wars galaxy.

Their goal was to restore the democratic ideals of the Old Republic.

‘Good Morning’ …. Debbie Reynolds …. a sad way to start the day …. for those left behind …. “!!

~~December 29, 2016~~

THE SAD REALITY

With two more days to go in 2016, we’d thought the passing of beloved ones would have ended.

George Michael, Christmas day. Carrie Fisher, the day after.

And Debbie Reynolds, a day after her daughter’s passing.

Many have expressed how unforgiving 2016 has been.

Here’s one more example.

Strength to all those left behind.

I think we are going to need it.

~Singin’ in the Rain scene that made Debbie Reynolds a star~

Debbie Reynolds — who died December 28 at age 84 — was 19 years-old when her life changed forever.

After cutting her teeth on cabaret performances and winning the Miss Burbank pageant in 1948, Reynolds landed the part of Kathy Selden in Singin’ in the Rain, the 1952 classic that would launch her career. She was to sing and dance opposite Donald O’Connor and Gene Kelly, lauded Hollywood mainstays with decades of performing experience, while she had almost none, and zero dancing experience to speak of.

Carrie Frances Fisher (October 21, 1956 – December 27, 2016) was an American actress, writer, producer, and humorist.

She was the daughter of singer Eddie Fisher and actress Debbie Reynolds.

Fisher was best known for playing Princess Leia in the Star Wars film series. Her other film roles included Shampoo (1975), The Blues Brothers (1980), Hannah and Her Sisters (1986), The ‘Burbs (1989), and When Harry Met Sally … (1989).

Fisher was also known for her semi-autobiographical novels, including Postcards from the Edge and the screenplay for the film of the same name, as well as her autobiographical one-woman play and its nonfiction book, Wishful Drinking, based on the show.

She additionally served as a script doctor, working on other writers’ screenplays. In later years, she earned praise for speaking publicly about her experiences with bipolar disorder and drug addiction.

Fisher died at the age of 60 on December 27, 2016, four days after going into cardiac arrest near the end of a transatlantic flight from London to Los Angeles.

IOTD …. Special Edition …. “Red Baseball Caps …. more slogans …. “!!


916

~~October 2, 2016~~ 

YUUUUUGE LOSS 

Baseball caps have been a fad in pop culture for a long time.

The red baseball cap gained new popularity when it became the standard bearer for

Make America Great Again“.

Plenty people have either bought them (I’m kinda skeptical that they were simply given away) as a symbol of the candidate they had chosen for the Presidential Elections 2016.

Crooked Donald

There’s a new one!

Lost $916 Million

Hence the reluctance to release the tax returns as has been the usual procedure for the last 40 years.

Now we know!

Donald Trump Tax Returns Reportedly Show $916 Million Loss in 1995

Donald Trump’s income tax returns from 1995 reportedly show he declared a $916 million loss, according to the New York Times, which said it received three pages from Trump’s filings that year.

The Times posted three pages it said were from Trump’s New York, New Jersey and Connecticut state income tax filings from 1995, all of which declared a loss of $915,729,293.

The documents came to the newspaper by mail, with a New York City postmark, the Times reported.

The paper said the legitimacy of the documents was confirmed by Jack Mitnick, a lawyer and certified public accountant who handled Trump’s tax affairs until 1996 and who was listed as the preparer on the New Jersey tax form.

polusa

“There it is,” said campaign manager Robby Mook.

“This bombshell report reveals the colossal nature of Donald Trump’s past business failures and just how long he may have avoided paying any federal income taxes whatsoever.

In one year, Donald Trump lost nearly a billion dollars. A billion.

He stiffed small businesses, laid off workers, and walked away from hardworking communities.

And how did it work out for him?

He apparently got to avoid paying taxes for nearly two decades – while tens of millions of working families paid theirs.

He calls that ‘smart.'”

ARNOLD PALMER 

‘The King’ of golf dies at 87

Arnold Palmer, who died Sunday, September 25, in Pittsburgh at age 87, was the accessible common man who would become the King and lead his own army. Along the way he became one of the sport’s best players and a successful businessman, philanthropist, trailblazing advertising spokesman, talented golf course designer and experienced aviator.

“We are deeply saddened by the death of Arnold Palmer, golf’s greatest ambassador, at age 87,” the U.S. Golf Association said in a statement.  “Arnold Palmer will always be a champion, in every sense of the word. He inspired generations to love golf by sharing his competitive spirit, displaying sportsmanship, caring for golfers and golf fans, and serving as a lifelong ambassador for the sport.

Our stories of him not only fill the pages of golf’s history books and the walls of the museum, but also our own personal golf memories.

The game is indeed better because of him, and in so many ways, will never be the same.”

Alastair Johnson, CEO of Arnold Palmer Enterprises, confirmed that Palmer died Sunday afternoon of complications from heart problems. Johnson said Palmer was admitted to the hospital Thursday for some cardiovascular work and weakened over the last few days.

Juan Gabriel wooed audiences with soulful pop ballads that made him a Latin American music legend.
For devoted fans around the world, his romantic rancheras were go-to tunes in the soundtracks of their lives.
The 66-year-old music star died in Santa Monica, California, on Sunday morning, two days after a sold-out show and hours before he was set to perform a concert in El Paso, Texas.

LOS DUOS 2

Los Dúo, Vol. 2 is the thirty-first studio album released by Juan Gabriel on December 11, 2015. It features many artists singing duets with Juan Gabriel. A DVD will also come with the album.

Patricia Giovanna Cantú Velasco (born November 25, 1983), known professionally as Paty Cantú is a Mexican singer-songwriter and occasional actress, who rose to fame as one of the founding members of the successful Mexican pop Duo Lu alongside Mario Sandoval.

Cantú was born in Houston, Texas. The family returned to Guadalajara (Mexico) when she was a child. At the age of 16, Cantú was drawn to entertaining people; she started taking bass and guitar lessons, eventually leaving law school to pursue her musical career.
