Rincón Beach Resort …. “🇵🇷 Our Favorite Spot in the World 🇵🇷 …. Before and After Hurricane María …. “!!


A PICTURE SAYS A THOUSAND WORDS

The red “*” marks the spot where our favorite spot on the world is located.

~RINCON BEACH RESORT~

Whenever we travel to Puerto Rico to visit family and friends and to get away from the daily hustle and bustle, we land in Aguadilla. We drive to Rincón and check in.

The resort is our base. We drive from the base to surrounding towns to see friends and family.

As a matter of fact, we were due for our next trip before Hurricane María nearly flattened Puerto Rico 118 days ago.

Prior to that, Hurricane Irma also grazed the island.

BEST INLET EVER

NOTICE HOW BIG MARIA WAS 

It engulfed and swallowed Puerto Rico.

According to the National Hurricane Center, hurricane-force winds extended up to 30 miles from Hurricane María’s center, while tropical storm-force winds extend outward for up to 125 miles.

Keep in mind that Puerto Rico is 100 miles long X 35 miles wide.

There was no place to hide!

NOTICE THE STEP DOWN WHERE THE BEACH USED TO BE

*(compare to the ‘before’ pictures)*

It’s all gone. My heart is hurting.

The friend who sent me the pictures told me that the beach lost its shore, the trees and the palm trees are gone as you can see.

The beach itself is deeper and not safe for swimming.

THE SOFT SAND IS GONE, REPLACED BY ROCKS AND DEBRIS

THE SOFT BEACH IS GONE

CANNOT WALK TO THE POINT ANYMORE

INCREDIBLE BEACH EROSION

Ellen DeGeneres and Oprah Winfrey …. “🏡 Catastrophic Mudslides in thier Neighborhood of Montecito, California 🏡 …. “!!

~~January 11, 2018~~ 

MONTECITO, CALIFORNIA

MOTHER EARTH SPEAKS

Mother Earth seems to be speaking through many events.

It may be time for the human residents to heed Her message.

From Category 4-5 hurricanes, significant drought, threatening wild fires to earthquakes. What more can Mother Earth say?

Montecito is an unincorporated census-designated place in Santa Barbara County, California. It is the wealthiest community in the county.

As a census-designated place, Montecito had a population of 8,965 in 2010.

~Wikipedia~

GoldSwirl

Some of Montecito’s famous residents – Ellen DeGeneres and Oprah Winfrey – are speaking out about the devastating mudslides that have ravaged Southern California.

The one-two punch of fire and downpour-fueled debris flows have debilitated the affluent, picturesque community of about 10,000 people. The slides have killed at least 17, destroyed an estimated 100 homes and sent rescuers scrambling through the rubble searching for dozens who are missing.

“This room is always so full of positivity and love and today, I really need it,”

DeGeneres told the audience of her daytime talk show Thursday, January 11.

“One of the things that I want to talk about is you know, we’ve had these terrible fires all over California and one of the hardest hit areas is where I live in Montecito,” she continued.

DeGeneres said following the blazes, she was able to return to her house at the tail-end of last month. She said she was filled with pride to see signs throughout the community of people expressing their gratitude to firefighters and first responders.

“I just love this place,” she said.

~BRAND NEW HOME~

Ricky Martin, Jwan Yosef and their twin sons, Mateo and Valentino

I must confess!

I have been an avid fan since the days when he started in Menudo. I’m old enough to be his mom or grandmother!

I’ve followed his career through many years.

It makes me happy that he has found love, has a family and now has this amazing new home.

Here’s wishing him and his family the best for many years to come.

To say that the 40-something Ricky Martin maintains a boyish appeal may be the understatement of the year. The Puerto Rican superstar seized the spotlight as an angelic 12-year-old phenom in the boy band Menudo, beloved by teenyboppers and grandmothers alike.

He has rarely been out of the public eye since. Fresh off a blockbuster 2017 residency at the Monte Carlo Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Martin’s latest star turn has him portraying Gianni Versace’s boyfriend Antonio D’Amico in producer Ryan Murphy’s The Assassination of Gianni Versace: American Crime Story, on FX this January.

Martin’s greatest joy lies in the happy home life he has built with husband Jwan Yosef, a Syrian-born Swedish artist, and their nine-year-old twins, Matteo and Valentino.

~Full Transcript of Oprah’s Inspirational Golden Globes Speech~

Oprah Winfrey was the recipient of the Golden Globes‘ annual Cecil B. DeMille Award for Lifetime Achievement, and gave a powerful acceptance speech during Sunday night’s ceremony. She was introduced by Reese Witherspoon, who compared their time together on the set of A Wrinkle in Time to a master class at Harvard Business School and a spiritual retreat all in one.

“Oprah’s hugs could end wars, solve world peace,” Witherspoon joked.

Once Winfrey took the stage, she delivered an inspirational, uplifting speech which discussed race and gender and the fight for equality. She also told the story of Recy Taylor, a woman who fought for justice in the Jim Crow era after she was raped.

“For too long, women have not been heard or believed if they dare speak the truth to the power of those men,” Winfrey said, bringing the audience to its feet.

“But their time is up.

Their time is up.”

MAJOR ELECTION IN ALABAMA DECEMBER 12, 2017

~VERY SERIOUS TOPIC~

“Laughter is the best medicine.”

Thanks for keeping us kinda sane with these videos during this endless fuckery that it is Drumpf.

Now we need to add an alleged pedophile who seems to be inches from a Senate seat from Alabama.

RANDY RANDY RANDY!!

“So-called President Drumpf endorsed Alabama Republican Roy Moore in a US Senate special election, despite allegations from multiple women who accused the former state Supreme Court justice of sexual misconduct.

“Democrats refusal to give even one vote for massive Tax Cuts is why we need Republican Roy Moore to win in Alabama,” Drumpf tweeted on Monday.

“We need his vote on stopping crime, illegal immigration, Border Wall, Military, Pro Life, V.A., Judges 2nd Amendment and more.

No to Jones, a Pelosi/Schumer Puppet!”

The president was referring to Moore’s challenger, Democrat Doug Jones, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.

At times as serious as these, humor always lightens up the situation, even though momentarily.

These are very serious topics.

Humor is the best way to get through this in spite of the seriousness of it all.

Once again Randy Rainbow provides much of it.

Ashley Judd …. “✊🏽 Incredibly Fiery Speech at the Women’s March, Washington, DC ✊🏽 …. “!!

NASTY WOMAN

~~WOMEN’S MARCH ON WASHINGTON~~

JANUARY 2017

The current climate in the nation isn’t healthy. Ugly spots and sores are coming out. Women are telling their stories of abuse, powerlessness, harassment, assault at the hands of men who have a position of power in their lives, careers and government. It’s all coming out and the results aren’t pretty.

I’m including the full scrip to make sure you don’t miss one word.

It’s perfect for this moment in time.

“My name is Ashley Judd and I am a feminist.

And I want to say hello to Independence Avenue in the back, all the way down to 17th Street, and I bring you words from Nina Donovan, a 19-year-old in Middle, Tennessee.

She has given me the privilege of telling you what she has to say:

“I am a nasty woman. I’m as nasty as a man who looks like he bathes in Cheetos dust. A man whose words are a distract to America. Electoral college-sanctioned, hate-speech contaminating this national anthem. I’m not as nasty as Confederate flags being tattooed across my city. Maybe the South actually is going to rise again. Maybe for some it never really fell. Blacks are still in shackles and graves, just for being black. Slavery has been reinterpreted as the prison system in front of people who see melanin as animal skin. I am not as nasty as a swastika painted on a pride flag, and I didn’t know devils could be resurrected but I feel Hitler in these streets. A mustache traded for a toupee. Nazis renamed the Cabinet Electoral Conversion Therapy, the new gas chambers shaming the gay out of America, turning rainbows into suicide. I am not as nasty as racism, fraud, conflict of interest, homophobia, sexual assault, transphobia, white supremacy, misogyny, ignorance, white privilege … your daughter being your favorite sex symbol, like your wet dreams infused with your own genes.

Yeah, I’m a nasty woman – a loud, vulgar, proud woman.

BLineAsh1BLine

“I am not nasty like the combo of Trump and Pence being served up to me in my voting booths. I’m nasty like the battles my grandmothers fought to get me into that voting booth. I’m nasty like the fight for wage equality. Scarlett Johansson, why were the female actors paid less than half of what the male actors earned last year. See, even when we do go into higher paying jobs our wages are still cut with blades sharpened by testosterone. Why is the work of a black woman and a Hispanic woman worth only 63 and 54 cents of a white man’s privileged daughter? This is not a feminist myth.

This is inequality. So we are not here to be debunked. We are here to be respected. We are here to be nasty.

“I am nasty like my bloodstains on my bed sheets. We don’t actually choose if and when to have our periods. Believe me if we could some of us would. We do not like throwing away our favorite pairs of underpants. Tell me, why are pads and tampons still taxed when Viagra and Rogaine are not? Is your erection really more than protecting the sacred messy part of my womanhood? Is the bloodstain on my jeans more embarrassing than the thinning of your hair?

BLineAsh3BLine

“I know it is hard to look at your own entitlement and privilege. You may be afraid of the truth. I am unafraid to be honest. It may sound petty bringing up a few extra cents. It adds up to the pile of change I have yet to see in my country. I can’t see. My eyes are too busy praying to my feet hoping you don’t mistake eye contact for wanting physical contact. Half my life I have been zipping up my smile hoping you don’t think I want to unzip your jeans.

I am unafraid to be nasty because I am nasty like Susan, Elizabeth, Eleanor, Amelia, Rosa, Gloria, Condoleezza, Sonia, Malala, Michelle, Hillary!

“And our pussies ain’t for grabbing.

There for reminding you that our walls are stronger than America’s ever will be. Our pussies are for our pleasure. They are for birthing new generations of filthy, vulgar, nasty, proud, Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Sikh, you name it, for new generations of nasty women. So if you a nasty woman, or you love one who is, let me hear you say, hell yeah.”
