Chinese active in Cuba

Image result for china and cuba images

Guess who is hanging around with Raul Castro these days? The answer is China, as we see in this report from Pan Am Post:    
Chen Xi, China’s Ambassador to Havana, signed agreements with Cuban Foreign Trade and Foreign Investment Minister Rodrigo Malmiera to expand economic relations between the two countries.
China pledged to make a US $1 million donation to help with Hurricane Irma recovery efforts. 
Additionally, China will provide more than US $12 million in supplies, including generators, water pumps, purifiers, folding beds and other resources.
The agreement granted China a credit line for a project to remodel and modernize the island’s electric grid and solar power infrastructure, according to the state-run publication Cuban News Agency.
Though China surpassed Venezuela in terms of trade with Cuba last year — with total of US $361 million — the agreement means that China has officially become the island’s largest trading partner. 
Chinese-made buses, trucks and cars already frequent Cuban roads.
So what is China looking for?   
Selling trucks and cars to Cuba? Where are the consumers?    
Buses? It may be that Cuba could use some new buses but that’s not a very big sale either.
As Mexico, Canada, European countries, Brazil, and so many others have learned, doing business with Cuba is rather difficult because there is no market to speak of. This is why so much of the foreign investment is about building hotels.
China has to know that doing business with Castro’s Cuba is an automatic trip to “a loan rescheduling” meeting.    
Who hasn’t been forced to restructure their loans to Cuba? A few months ago, the Paris Club agreed to waive $8.5 billion of Cuba’s outstanding $11.1 billion debt!
It works like this:  Cuba buys on credit and then can’t pay off the loan.  
So China must have a different motive. How about national security or military? How about Chinese warships or submarines visiting Cuba in the future? Military outpost for intelligence or Chinese jets?
Maybe President Trump should talk about Cuba when he meets with China soon.

We remember Dave McNally (1942-2002)



Image result for dave mcnally images


Dave McNally was one of my favorite Orioles.    He broke with Baltimore in 1962 and won 184 games.   

Along the way, Dave pitched in 4 World Series, 2 LCS and won 87 games over 1968-71.

Just a great lefty who kept you in every game.    

McNally won game 4 of the 1966 World Series with a 1-0 shutout of the LA Dodgers.    He hit a grand slam in game 4 of the 1970 World Series against Cincinnati.

He was 7-4 with a 2.49 ERA in 9 post seasons series with Baltimore.

Still the best Halloween song after all these years!


My sons don't "trick or treat" anymore but it's still great to see the next generation with their costumes knocking on your door.

To say the least, Halloween is a great excuse for us adults to eat those chocolate treats.    I've had my share of "treats" over the years. 

Over time, we've seen movies, TV specials and have heard songs about Halloween.   I guess that The Charlie Brown special is my favorite.  The Disney stuff is usually good.  I don't care much for the "Friday 13th" movies.  They're a bit too scary for me!

Halloween song?  My favorite, and # 1 after all of these years, is Bobby Pickett's "Monster Mash".   It gets a lot of airplay every year:



Monster Mash

"I was working in the lab late one night When my eyes beheld an eerie sightFor my monster from his slab began to riseAnd suddenly to my surpriseHe did the mash He did the monster mashThe monster mash It was a graveyard smashHe did the mash It caught on in a flashHe did the mash He did the monster mashFrom my laboratory in the castle eastTo the master bedroom where the vampires feastThe ghouls all came from their humble abodesTo get a jolt from my electrodesThey did the mash They did the monster mashThe monster mash It was a graveyard smashThey did the mash It caught on in a flashThey did the mash They did the monster mashThe zombies were having fun The party had just begunThe guests included Wolf Man Dracula and his sonThe scene was rockin', all were digging the soundsIgor on chains, backed by his baying houndsThe coffin-bangers were about to arriveWith their vocal group, "The Crypt-Kicker Five"They played the mash They played the monster mashThe monster mash It was a graveyard smashThey played the mash It caught on in a flashThey played the mash They played the monster mashOut from his coffin, Drac's voice did ringSeems he was troubled by just one thingHe opened the lid and shook his fistAnd said, "Whatever happened to my Transylvania twist?"It's now the mash It's now the monster mashThe monster mash And it's a graveyard smashIt's now the mash It's caught on in a flashIt's now the mash It's now the monster mashNow everything's cool, Drac's a part of the bandAnd my monster mash is the hit of the landFor you, the living, this mash was meant tooWhen you get to my door, tell them Boris sent youThen you can mash Then you can monster mashThe monster mash And do my graveyard smashThen you can mash You'll catch on in a flashThen you can mash Then you can monster mash....."

Happy Halloween cubano!





Fidel Castro died in 2016.   So we remember him this Halloween.

This is the story of a Cuban Halloween!

Happy Halloween: Our first Halloween in the US many years ago

Image result for halloween images

Another Halloween and another time to remember our first Halloween in the US.

We had been in the US about 6 weeks when Halloween came up on the calendar.

My Uncle Orlando and family told us about the night.  They told us to put on a costume, walk around and say "trick or treat".

We followed his advice and got lots of candy.  Our mother came along to help our little sister who was dressed up as Cinderella.  My brother and I went as cowboys. 

It was a wonderful night. 

My favorite part of Halloween is hearing my mother say "trick or treat".  It sounded a lot like "tri tri tri".

The trouble with Mueller

Related image
We’ve been hearing a ton of predictions about Monday, the day that Mr. Mueller is supposed to announce some indictments. 
No matter what, Mr. Mueller’s work is under intense pressure, as we saw when the Wall Street Journal called for his resignation, along withGuy Benson’s interesting analysis
The Washington Post revealed Tuesday that the Hillary Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee jointly paid for that infamous “dossier” full of Russian disinformation against Donald Trump. 
They filtered the payments through a U.S. law firm (Perkins Coie), which hired the opposition-research hit men at Fusion GPS. 
Fusion in turn tapped a former British spook, Christopher Steele, to compile the allegations, which are based largely on anonymous, Kremlin-connected sources.  
Strip out the middlemen, and it appears that Democrats paid for Russians to compile wild allegations about a U.S. presidential candidate. Did someone say “collusion”? 
This news is all the more explosive because the DNC and Clinton campaign hid their role, even amid the media furor after BuzzFeed published the Steele dossier in January. 
Reporters are now saying that Clinton campaign officials lied to them about their role in the dossier. 
Current DNC Chair Tom Perez and former Chair Debbie Wasserman-Schultz deny knowing about the dossier arrangement, but someone must have known. 
Perhaps this explains why Congressional Democrats have been keen to protect Fusion from answering dossier questions — disrupting hearings, protesting subpoenas and deriding Republican investigators.
And it’s only going to get more confusing as more information comes out next week and after.
So it’s time for Mueller to do the honorable thing and resign. How can Mr. Mueller, or anyone else who has worked in the deep state, honestly look at all of this without bumping into a conflict of interest along the way?
As the expression goes:  when all else fails, read the instructions! In this case, “the instructions” are in the U.S. Constitution that gives the Congress oversight responsibilities. 
It is the Congress, not Mr. Mueller, that should be conducting this investigation. The U.S. Congress has its flaws, from grandstanding to partisanship, but it is the best place to conduct these hearings and to ask the questions that need answers.

We remember John Adams (1735-1826)




We remember John Adams, who was born on this day in 1835.


This is what John Adams wrote to Abigail about July 4th:
"I am apt to believe that it will be celebrated, by succeeding Generations, as the great anniversary Festival.

It ought to be commemorated, as the Day of Deliverance by solemn Acts of Devotion to God Almighty.

It ought to be solemnized with Pomp and Parade, with Shews, Games, Sports, Guns, Bells, Bonfires and Illuminations from one End of this Continent to the other from this Time forward forever more."


Check it out.


It is a great story about the making of the US.


It is also a great story about a wonderful couple, John and Abigail Adams.


Happy # 83 to Jim Perry, the other Perry brother



We say happy # 83 to the other Perry, i.e. Jim Perry, brother of Hall of Famer Gaylord Perry.

Jim broke with the Indians in 1959 and won 18 in his second year.   

He was traded to Minnesota in 1963 and that's where he won the 1970 AL Cy Young:  24-12 with a 3.04 ERA.

Perry retired with 215 wins and a 3.45 ERA.   He was a very good pitcher.

Happy # 78 to Grace Slick


Grace Slick is 78 and that makes everyone feel old.  

She was the face of Jefferson Airplane, the legendary group from the 1960s that became Jefferson Starship in the 1970s.     Her most controversial performance was "White rabbit", a song with a reference to drug use.

October 30, 1938: Orson Wells and "The War of the worlds" radio show.


 Years ago, Sunday night was radio prime time.   Enter Orson Wells:


“The show began on Sunday, October 30, at 8 p.m. A voice announced: “The Columbia Broadcasting System and its affiliated stations present Orson Welles and the Mercury Theater on the air in ‘War of the Worlds’ by H.G. Wells.”
Sunday evening in 1938 was prime-time in the golden age of radio, and millions of Americans had their radios turned on. But most of these Americans were listening to ventriloquist Edgar Bergen and his dummy “Charlie McCarthy” on NBC and only turned to CBS at 8:12 p.m. after the comedy sketch ended and a little-known singer went on. By then, the story of the Martian invasion was well underway.
Welles introduced his radio play with a spoken introduction, followed by an announcer reading a weather report. Then, seemingly abandoning the storyline, the announcer took listeners to “the Meridian Room in the Hotel Park Plaza in downtown New York, where you will be entertained by the music of Ramon Raquello and his orchestra.” Putrid dance music played for some time, and then the scare began. An announcer broke in to report that “Professor Farrell of the Mount Jenning Observatory” had detected explosions on the planet Mars. Then the dance music came back on, followed by another interruption in which listeners were informed that a large meteor had crashed into a farmer’s field in Grovers Mills, New Jersey.
Soon, an announcer was at the crash site describing a Martian emerging from a large metallic cylinder. “Good heavens,” he declared, “something’s wriggling out of the shadow like a gray snake. Now here’s another and another one and another one. They look like tentacles to me … I can see the thing’s body now. It’s large, large as a bear. It glistens like wet leather. But that face, it… it … ladies and gentlemen, it’s indescribable. I can hardly force myself to keep looking at it, it’s so awful. The eyes are black and gleam like a serpent. The mouth is kind of V-shaped with saliva dripping from its rimless lips that seem to quiver and pulsate.”
The Martians mounted walking war machines and fired “heat-ray” weapons at the puny humans gathered around the crash site. They annihilated a force of 7,000 National Guardsman, and after being attacked by artillery and bombers the Martians released a poisonous gas into the air. Soon “Martian cylinders” landed in Chicago and St. Louis. The radio play was extremely realistic, with Welles employing sophisticated sound effects and his actors doing an excellent job portraying terrified announcers and other characters. An announcer reported that widespread panic had broken out in the vicinity of the landing sites, with thousands desperately trying to flee. In fact, that was not far from the truth.
Perhaps as many as a million radio listeners believed that a real Martian invasion was underway. Panic broke out across the country. In New Jersey, terrified civilians jammed highways seeking to escape the alien marauders. People begged police for gas masks to save them from the toxic gas and asked electric companies to turn off the power so that the Martians wouldn’t see their lights. One woman ran into an Indianapolis church where evening services were being held and yelled, “New York has been destroyed! It’s the end of the world! Go home and prepare to die!”
When news of the real-life panic leaked into the CBS studio, Welles went on the air as himself to remind listeners that it was just fiction. There were rumors that the show caused suicides, but none were ever confirmed.”
Let me recommend that you check out the whole show.   It is one of the finest audio programs ever made.  
I can understand why so many people bought into the Martian attack.
Fantastic!

Who knew that the CIA had hired a bunch of cicadas?

Image result for cuban cicada images

During our early days in the U.S., my father, my uncle, and a few Cuban friends were having a nice laugh about the allegations that they were working for the CIA.  It was common back then for the Castro regime, and some of their friends among the international left, to brand Cuban exiles as CIA operatives, agents, or whatever else denoted that we had worked for them.  We were allegedly on the CIA’s payroll!
It led one of my dad’s friends to say: “I never got my CIA stipend.  Did any of you?”  I remember a lot of laughter after that!
The latest explanation about the “sonic attack” is more bizarre than the story itself.  It’s hard to believe that the Cuban government has come to this.  This is from a Fox News report:
Could the mysterious “sonic attacks” allegedly waged against U.S. Embassy employees in Cuba really just be the sounds of very loud crickets and cicadas?
That’s what Cuban officials seemed to suggest Thursday in a half-hour prime-time television special titled “Alleged Sonic Attacks.”
 
The special broadcast was Cuban officials’ most detailed defense to date against U.S. accusations that American diplomats in Havana were subjected to mysterious sounds that left them with a variety of ailments — including headaches, hearing problems and concussions.
With the report, Cuban officials sought to undermine the Trump administration’s assertion that 24 U.S. officials or their relatives had been subjected to deliberate attacks by a still-undetermined culprit.
Many U.S. officials reported being subjected to loud, grating noises before falling ill. The U.S. has not accused Cuba of carrying out the attacks, but says that Cuba has not met its obligation to protect diplomats on its territory.
The Cuban regime is concerned about President Trump slandering their good name?  Who is going to defend the poor cicadas from the regime’s slander?
This is such an outrageous report from Havana.
First, why did the cicadas attack only U.S. diplomats?
Second, I don’t remember anyone in my family ever complaining of ‘cicada attacks” in Cuba. 
My father’s family arrived in Cuba from Spain in the 1840s.  My mother’s family arrived from Asturias (Spain) in the 1920s.  My parents were born and grew up in the interior of the island, surrounded by lots of countryside.  My dad had lots of cattlemen as bank clients.  He would often take my brother and me to visit their cattle ranches when we were kids.  I saw lots of bulls and cows growing up.
I’ve heard everything, from chameleons scaring little girls to crazy frogs running into your living room to roosters gone mad and attacking dogs to mules refusing to work on Sundays to parrots using bad language to sharks attacking swimmers.  Frankly, I have never heard of cicadas ever harming anyone – nor, especially, of “cicada brigades” targeting specific diplomats.
So it must CIA-trained cicadas.  What else explains what just happened in Cuba?  Who knew that the CIA had a cicada department in their building?

A "Dracula story" for Halloween!


My kids have grown up and pursuing their careers, interests and other things.   Therefore, Halloween just doesn't mean as much as it used to.  I still enjoy seeing the little kids in their costumes but it's different.

As we approach Halloween, let's hear the real story of Dracula.


Dr. Ileana Johnson-Paugh wrote about Dracula and the castle during her recent trip to Romania:
"The inspirational castle of Bram Stoker’s “Dracula,” was strategically located on a rocky bluff, difficult to conquer, tiny by any definition of a castle, and surrounded by stone turrets. The savage nature of the landscape surrounded it with mystique."

Super Bowl 2008: It was the biggest NY football win since Jets beat Colts!



As I said before, I did not have a dog in the SB fight

After further review, it was the biggest NY football win since the Jets beat the Colts in Super Bowl 3! 


Back then, the Colts were the NFL champs and expected to kill the young Jets from the upstart AFL.

The experts favored the Colts.

New York beat Baltimore and the AFL was here to stay.  Eventually, the leagues were merged and football interest grew incredibly.

Eli Manning is not Joe Namath. They are both southern boys but Joe likes publicity a lot more than the quiet Eli.

On the field, Eli can play. He can throw a pass. He can win a Super Bowl!

I'm happy for Giants' fans. I am specially happy for Eli Manning, a nice young man who was brutally attacked by the media dogs in NY!




2008 Super Bowl: Giants win!



We remember and say congratulations again to the New York Giants!

Who would have believed this a month before the big game? The Giants started 0-2 and they were ready to throw Coach Coughlin and Eli Manning out of NY.

I guess that this is why they play all 16 games and the postseason!


Let me say a word about the Patriots. They had a great year and 18-1 is nothing to feel bad about that.

It was a great and exciting game!




2005 World Series:: Chicago beat Houston


Image result for white sox win series images

The White Sox surprised me three times in the 2005 post season:  They beat Boston, the Angels and Astros in The World Series.

Frankly, I was very happy for Chicago's fans.  Like Boston, White Sox fans had been denied a title for so long.   Once in a while, the gods of baseball reward those who keep the faith.

It was the ChiSox's moment.  They enjoyed it Chicago!





October 1983: Quite a month for President Reagan

Image result for grenada 1983 newspaper images

We remember President Ronald Reagan as a rather consequential president. Let’s remember the events of this week in 1983.
First, a terror bombing in Beirut killed over a hundred U.S. Marines.   
President Reagan was getting ready for reelection and talking about the economic recovery underway. However, he had to deal with a major terrorist attack in Beirut when a suicide bomber drove a truck filled with 2,000 pounds of explosives into a U.S. Marine base at the international airport:   
The explosion killed 220 Marines, 18 sailors and three soldiers. 
A few minutes after that bomb went off, a second bomber drove into the basement of the nearby French paratroopers’ barracks, killing 58 more people.  
Four months after the bombing, American forces left Lebanon without retaliating.
It was a terrible story and one of the early signs of terrorism. Many criticized President Reagan for not retaliating, but I am not exactly sure what response could have followed this attack.
A few days later, President Reagan invaded Grenada. It turned out to be a major victory against Fidel Castro that prevented the USSR from having another strategic piece of real estate.   
Grenada was a small island where some U.S. citizens were attending medical school. Most people had never heard of Grenada or the Cuban efforts to turn the island into a communist beachhead, an important runway for Soviet MiGs.
However, the Reagan administration had their eye on Grenada for some time. They knew the strategic importance of Grenada and its proximity to the Panama Canal.    
We learned a lot that week about President Reagan and how foreign policy can force itself on the agenda. In Beirut, we were introduced to the type of terrorism that we saw eventually on 9/11. In Grenada, we saw President Reagan as the competent leader of the free world, or a man unwilling to let the USSR gain a strategic foothold over here.
It was quite a week for President Reagan and the U.S.

2008: Palin Derangement Syndrome and a couple of idiots in LA!



(A post from October 2008)

Palin Derangement Syndrome is alive and well near LA. (Effigy of Sarah Palin hanging by a noose creates uproar in West Hollywood)

When is something funny? When is something just plain sick? You can put me down as someone who thinks that this is sick.

Also, what if they did it to Obama?

Take it down. This is a disgusting way of celebrating Halloween. Why isn't this a hate crime?

Beyond the bad taste, this is another example of PDS and the American left.

The American left hates Sarah Palin because she had a baby rather than an abortion. 

In '91, Clarence Thomas had to be lynched because he did not kiss Jesse Jackson's ring to get ahead in life. 

In 2008, the feminists have declared war on Sarah Palin because she is not of them!

West Virginia is a good indicator of presidential elections!



John Denver had it right: Almost heaven, West Virginia

West Virginia is a beautiful state. It also has a knack for voting for the winner of presidential elections: FDR. Truman, Eisenhower, JFK, LBJ, Nixon, Carter, Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush and Trump!    It did not vote for Obama and he won in 2008 & 2012.

Not bad for little West Virginia!
