PUERTO RICO’S CRISIS

There’s still a crisis in Puerto Rico and we can’t forget that.

It has become the second longest blackout ever.

Here’s a condensed version of Puerto Rico’s history by itself, with Spain and with he United States.

This video also takes us back to September 6, 2017, when Hurricane María destroyed Puerto Rico as we knew it.

Hurricane season is already under way.

Hurricane Beryl has formed and it’s too close for comfort.

Let the video speak for itself.

IOTD …. “🇵🇷 Images of the Day, Special Edition …. Castillo San Felipe del Morro 🇵🇷 …. “!!


RedLineBLying on the northeastern-most point of the islet of Old San Juan, Castillo San Felipe del Morro is named in honor of King Philip II of Spain. The fortification, also referred to as el Morro or ‘the promontory,’ was designed to guard the entrance to the San Juan Bay, and defend the Spanish colonial port city of San Juan from seaborne enemies.

In 1983, the citadel was declared a World Heritage Site by the United Nations in conjunction with the San Juan National Historic Site.

~~GARITA DEL DIABLO~~

The sentry boxes or “garitas” were used by the Spanish soldiers or guards to protect the city walls night and day. Some of these were located quite near to others but others were more distant and solitary.

At night the guards would occasionally shout a call to other guards in their boxes so as to check on their whereabouts and to keep from falling asleep.

Paulo Coelho de Souza (Portuguese, born August 24, 1947) is a Brazilian lyricist and novelist. He is the recipient of numerous international awards, amongst them the Crystal Award by the World Economic Forum. His novel The Alchemist has been translated into 80 languages. The author has sold over 200 million copies worldwide and is the all-time bestselling Portuguese language author.

The Alchemist, easily known as his most successful book, is a story about a young shepherd who travels from his homeland in Spain to the Egyptian desert in search of a treasure buried in the Pyramids. No one knows what the treasure is, or if Santiago will be able to surmount the obstacles along the way. But what starts out as a journey to find worldly goods turns into a discovery of the treasure found within.

The book has inspired a devoted following around the world, with Will Smith, Madonna, and others having declared it to be their favorite novel, and Bill Clinton having been seen with a copy of the book. In 2014, Oprah Winfrey interviewed pop star Pharrell Williams, who stated that The Alchemist had changed his life.

GOYA PRODUCTS

Side by side to “Puerto Rican Gold”

Goya Foods, Inc. is a producer of a brand of foods sold in the United States and many Hispanic countries including Spain, Puerto Rico and the Dominican Republic. The company headquarters is in Jersey City, New Jersey. It is the largest Hispanic-owned food company in the United States.

Goya was founded in 1936 by Prudencio Unanue Ortiz (1886–1976) from Valle de Mena, Spain who emigrated to Puerto Rico, and met and married Carolina Casal (1890–1984) also a Spanish immigrant, emigrated to New York City, United States.

Prudencio believed that his name was too difficult to pronounce for American customers, so he purchased the name of a Moroccan sardine company named “Goya“. The company was initially set up in the Financial District of Manhattan, importing Spanish foods like olives and olive oil.

A Puerto Rican Moment …. “It Happens …. Don Quijote …. “!!


QuixPR

~~February 27, 2016~~ 

DON QUIJOTE DE LA MANCHA

(We claim Don Quijote as Boricua)

Don Quijote, fully titled The Ingenious Gentleman Don Quixote of La Mancha (Spanish: El ingenioso hidalgo don Quijote de la Mancha), is a Spanish novel by Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra.

Published in two volumes, in 1605 and 1615, Don Quijote is considered one of the most influential works of literature from the Spanish Golden Age and the entire Spanish literary canon. As a founding work of modern Western literature and one of the earliest canonical novels, it regularly appears high on lists of the greatest works of fiction ever published, such as the Bokklubben World Library collection that cites Don Quixote as authors’ choice for the “best literary work ever written“.

The story follows the adventures of an hidalgo named Mr. Alonso Quixada who reads so many chivalric romances that he loses his sanity and decides to set out to revive chivalry, undo wrongs, and bring justice to the world, under the name Don Quijote de la Mancha. He recruits a simple farmer, Sancho Panza, as his squire, who often employs a unique, earthy wit in dealing with Don Quixote’s rhetorical orations on antiquated knighthood.

VUELVO A TI

(“Coming back to you”)

There’s nothing better than listening to good music.

I was coming back home this afternoon and had the radio blaring.

I was sharing the moment with Angelika, my oldest grandchild.

I dropped her off and went on my way when “my music” started playing.

I had the “Corazon Latino” CD in the player and this song started.

I looked for it and would like to share it with you.

These two voices are incredible and so in tune with each other.

Both are passionate and strong singers.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

This song has the “chill factor”.
