A word about May 14






We remember May 14:

US history:     On this day in 1787, the story of the US changed when delegates from the 13 states met to amend The Articles of Confederation.    The sessions did not really start until May 25 when everybody was in town.   By September, the gathering produced the US Constitution that we know today.    It was subsequently sent to the states for ratification.   The Bill of Rights, or the first 10 Amendments, were added between 1789-1791. 

The story of the West:    The Louisiana Purchase was completed in 1803.    A year later, Lewis & Clark began their mission to explore the lands of the West.   The men returned on September 23rd, 1806, after almost two and a half years.  They brought back tremendous information that led to the settlement of the West.  It must have been an eye popping trip for the men in that mission.

Music files:    Time flies and we recall that Frank Sinatra died many years ago this week.  It seems like it was yesterday that I was driving and heard the story about Sinatra's death on the radio.

Rock groups:   We remember Jack Bruce who was born on this day in 1943.   He died in 2014.  CREAM was one of the super groups of the 1960s.  They were Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker and Jack Bruce.    

Hall of Fame: We remember today Atanasio (Rigal) Perez, the pride of Ciego de Avila and member of the Baseball Hall of Fame.  He was born in 1942.  Tony broke with the Cincinnati Reds in the summer of 1964.   He went on to have a wonderful major league career:  2,777 games, 2,732 hits, 379 HR, 1,659 RBI and a very good .279 career batting average.

Baseball notes:    We say happy birthday to Dennis Martinez who was born in Nicaragua on this day in 1954.    From 1976 to 1997, Dennis was a very successful major league pitcher:  245 wins, 3.70 ERA, 122 complete games and a perfect game in 1991.

We say happy birthday to Dennis Martinez who was born in Nicaragua on this day in 1954.  

From 1976 to 1997, Dennis was a very successful major league pitcher:  245 wins, 3.70 ERA, 122 complete games and a perfect game in 1991.

Dennis broke with the Orioles in 1976 and played for Baltimore in the 1979 and 1983 World Series.   

He was eventually traded to Montreal where he enjoyed some very good years with the Expos:  100-72 with a 3.06 ERA.

His 245 wins are # 2 among Latino pitchers.
 

Happy # 79 Tony Perez




La Vida Voices: The Journey of Tony Pérez
(You can listen to my show (Canto Talk).  If you like our posts, drop a dime here.)
We remember today Atanasio (Rigal) Perez, the pride of Ciego de Avila and member of the Baseball Hall of Fame.  He was born in 1942. 
Tony broke with the Cincinnati Reds in the summer of 1964.   He went on to have a wonderful major league career:  2,777 games, 2,732 hits, 379 HR, 1,659 RBI and a very good .279 career batting average
Tony’s career was more than numbers. He was the steady bat in a Reds’ team that won 4 NL titles and the World Series in 1975 and 1976. 
Willie Stargell spoke for many of his fellow players:  
““With men in scoring position and the game on the line…Tony’s the last guy an opponent wanted to see.”” 
Tony had many big hits for the Reds Machine in the 1970s.   He is best remembered for a big homer in game 7 of the 1975 World Series.    After playing, Tony was a coach and baseball executive.

A word about May 13




1917:  We remember Our Lady of Fatima today..........the movie "The miracle of our Lady of Fatima" is very good.

1981:  Do you remember the day that Pope John Paul II was shot?  It happened on this day in 1981.


Music:   We wish a very happy birthday to Stevie Wonder who was born in Michigan on this day in 1950.


"La Bamba":    Richard Steven Valenzuela (Ritchie Valens) was born on this day in 1941 in Los Angeles.  He became one of the first Mexican-American rockers and the inspiration for "La Bamba", a great movie from the 1980's.   


"Motown story":    Motown had 32 # 1 hits.     Who recorded the first one?   The answer is Mary Wells who was born on this day in 1943.      She died in 1992.   Back in 1964, she recorded "My guy", a song that later showed up in the soundtrack of "Sister Act"


"Hall of Fame:  The great Stan Musial got # 3,000 on this day in 1958.    It happened at Wrigley Field.    Musial came into the game as a pinch-hitter.    He may be the only player to get # 3,000 as a pinchhitter.   Musial went into The Hall of Fame in 1969.   He won 3 NL MVP's and retired with a .331 average, 3,630 hits, 475 HR & 1,961 RBI.

We wish a very happy birthday to Stevie Wonder who was born in Michigan on this day in 1950.


From "Fingertips" to "My Cherie Amour" and so many others, Stevie Wonder was on the charts all of the time.

It's hard to pick a song.

It's not hard to pick an album.

"Songs in the key of life" was released in 1976 and belongs in every popular music collection. It sounds good so many years later.

My favorite tune from the album was: "Ngiculela-Es Una Historia-I Am Singing"!

It's a wonderful ballad in 3 languages, although I must confess that I don't understand the first one. The second and third verses are in Spanish and English, respectively.

I love the melody and the arrangement:

A word about May 12





We remember May 12:

Cold War 1949:    We recall something that happened back in 1949 or the day that the USSR lifted the blockade against West Berlin.  The US and UK broke the blockade with a massive airlift of supplies to keep the citizens fed and warm.  It was one of President Truman's finest moments.   Of course, we also remember the story of the "candy bombers", the pilots who dropped candy to children behind the Iron Curtain.  For more see my post:   "Berlin 1948: Another sad day in the brutal history of communism".

Crime of the century?:   On May 12, 1932, the police found the body of the missing Lindbergh baby.     He was kidnapped on March 1st and many believe that the baby died that same night.  

Hall of Fame:    We remember Lawrence Berra who was born in St. Louis on this day in 1925.  He died in 2015.    Yogi Berra was a great player, a Hall of Famer and 3-time MVP.   He made the AL All Star Team 15 times and played on 10 World Series champions.   Did he really say all of those things?   I don't know but they were great.

1970:   We remember the late Ernie Banks' 500th home run.   Banks is still one of the most popular players ever to wear a major league uniform:   Hall of Fame 19771958 & 1959 NL MVP, 512 HR, 1,636 RBI, 2,583 hits and twice led the NL in HR's.

Baseball:   We remember Felipe Alou who was born in 
The Dominican Republican on this day in 1935.As a player, Alou was one of the most consistent hitters in the National League:  .286, 206 HR, 852 RBI & 2,101 hits.     Alou led the NL twice in hits.   He broke with the Braves in Milwaukee and then had some great years at Atlanta.
As a manager, Alou was 691-717 with the Expos and later the Giants.

We remember Felipe Alou who was born in The Dominican Republican on this day in 1935.

As a player, Alou was one of the most consistent hitters in the National League:  .286, 206 HR, 852 RBI & 2,101 hits.     

He broke with the Giants in 1958, was traded to Milwaukee (1964-65) and then had some great years in Atlanta (1966-69).   Later, he played with the A's, the Yankees, Expos & Brewers.  

Along the way, Alou led the NL twice in hits, i.e. 1966 & 1968.  

His best season was probably 1966:   .327 average, 31 HR, 74 RBI, 122 runs & 218 hits.  He finished # 5 in the NL MVP vote.

As a manager, Alou was 691-717 with the Expos and later the Giants.  His Expos had the best record in baseball (.649) the year of the 1994 strike.    Wonder how deep those Expos would have gone that year?

Alou's two brothers, Matty & Jesus, also played in the majors.

A word about May 7






We remember May 7:

The Rolling Stones:   It happened on this day or the moment that Keith Richards got the inspiration for "Satisfaction". A few days later, Keith and Mick Jagger worked on the song and the group recorded it.  "Satisfaction" was the group's first # 1 song in the US.      Rolling Stone, a magazine that has nothing to do with the group, ranked the song as # 2 in the Top 500 songs of all time.    

From the movies:    Gary Cooper was born on this day in 1901.  He made some great movies.   My favorite are "Pride of the Yankeesfrom  1942 and "High Noonfrom 1952A great actor, an American original, who died in 1961.

Baltimore Colts:   We remember Johnny Unitas who was born in Pittsburgh, PA, on this day in 1933.    He died in 2002.  He led the Colts for many years and titles.

A word about May 6






We remember May 6:

Best player ever?   We remember Willie Mays who was born in Westfield, Alabama, on this day in 1931.  He broke with the Giants in 1951 and the rest of the story is one of the greatest careers in baseball history:   .302 career average, 3,283 hits, 660 HR, 1,903 RBI, & the first 30 HR-30 stolen bases player ever.   

Tragedy:  It happened on this day in 1937 when the Hindenburg burst into flames killing 36 passengers and crew members.   Catch the audio.

1970 and the last Beatles' 45:   "The long and winding road", with "For you blue" on the B-side.  The singe reached # 1 on Billboard in June.

1915:  Babe Ruth hit his first home run or # 1 of 714..

In my book, the greatest center fielder ever and one of the top players of all time.   He could do everything:   NL Rookie of the Year award in 1951, 20 All-Star teams, won two NL MVP & 12 straight Gold Gloves 1957-68.
 
This is amazing:  Mays finished in the top-10 in the MVP voting 12 times in 13 seasons from 1954-66.

BMI Acoustic Lounge - Los Angeles: May 4, 2020 | Calendar | BMI.com

We remember May 4:

Ohio 1970:    We remember Kent State and the day that 100 National Guardsmen fired their rifles into a group of students, killing four and wounding 11It was very unfortunate.   In 1974, a federal court dropped all charges against eight Ohio National Guardsmen for their role in the students’ deaths.

Dems shut out in Texas special election

Dems shut out in Texas special election:  


My new AT post....

Let me tell what just happened in a special House election in Texas' Congressional District 6.   Let's call it our Texan version of a jungle primary with 23 candidates.  In the end, the final three were two reds and one blue:   

(R) Susan Wright: 15,052 votes 19.21%

(R) Jake Ellzey: 10,851 votes 13.85%

(D) Jana Sanchez: 10,497 votes 13.30%

In other words, the runoff will be between two Republicans because the Democrat fell short.

Let's take a quick look at the results:

First, everyone expected this seat to stay red.  It's carved perfectly for a conservative like the late Ron Wright who passed away weeks ago.  The district covers all of Ellis and Navarro Counties, as well as southeastern Tarrant County.   It is a primarily rural or GOP territory.    

Second, the Democrats were hoping to make some gains because the district covers three Northern Texas counties around Dallas, Fort Worth, and Arlington. Like 2020, the plan fell short.  It's still early to analyze the voter turnout but the Democrat base did not show up or surprise the party again.  

Third, the Democrats need to listen to their message again.  Sanchez did not run as a crazy liberal but voters in Texas do not want to hear about "common sense gun laws" and small businesses in that area are not keen on a mandated $ 15 minimum wage.   She did not say a word about school choice or the border mess, a couple of issues that everyone is talking about down here.

No matter how they spin it, the Democrats were hoping to make the runoff.

A few memories and thoughts about May 3:

"Those were the days my friend":   Mary Hopkin, the beautiful young woman from Wales who sang so many wonderful songs, was born on this day in 1950.   Mary is best known for "Those were the days", now available in a digital format. 

"Godfather of soul":  We remember James Brown who was born on this day in 1933.  He left us a huge legacy of songs and albums.

"The book that everybody had to read in school":  Niccolo Machiavelli was born in Florence on this day in 1469.   We remember him for "The Prince", or the book that he published in 1532 when he was briefly jailed.  

"Time flies":   We say happy birthday to Francesco Stephen Castelluccio who was born in New Jersey on this day in 1934.   We know him as Frankie Valli.   

"Everybody's favorite host":    We remember the great Robert Osborne, who was born on this day in 1932.    He was the face of TCM, the great movie channel that so many of us love.    He passed away in 2017.   

Once in a while, we have a little free time to catch an old movie.    Not long ago, they were showing “55 days at Peking”.   This is a story based in China during The Boxer Rebellion.

Happy # 71 Mary Hopkin


Mary Hopkin “Those Were The Days” – ELBOLSA
Mary Hopkin, the beautiful young woman from Wales who sang so many wonderful songs, was born on this day in 1950.

Mary is best known for "Those were the days", now available in a digital format.   

This is specially good for those who grew up with the scratchy 45!

It was one of the first records released on Apple Records, the company started by The Beatles.

Mary was a beautiful 18-year old woman when she recorded this tune. It quickly became an international best seller.

I loved her voice. Let me confess that I loved her elegant look too! She looked and sounded great!

It's Sunday, and pro-abortion President Biden will take Communion again

It's Sunday, and pro-abortion President Biden will take Communion again
My new AT post.....

As a Catholic, let me deliver this message to all of those fellow Catholics who are disappointed with President Biden: what were you thinking?

Suddenly, there are pro-life Democrats disappointed with their party.  Again, didn't you know that your party is committed to a pro-abortion message?  I may be wrong, but wasn't Governor Casey the last pro-life prime-time speaker at a party convention?  That was in 1992, and a fellow named Perot was running for president.

Once again, we hear that bishops are talking about the Catholic who has never heard of an abortion he'd disapprove of.

This is from National Catholic Register:

In his first weeks in office, he issued an executive order to cancel the Mexico City Policy that prohibited U.S. taxpayer funding of abortion and advocacy for abortion abroad. The move flouted repeated reminders from the U.S. bishops about how his pro-abortion commitments conflict with the Church's clear teaching about this preeminent moral issue of our time, as well as Pope Francis' repeated warnings about "modern forms of ideological colonization," including the exportation of a progressive agenda against the unborn. 

With the stroke of a pen, our nation's Catholic president forced his fellow Catholics, and other Americans who abhor abortion on the grounds of their faith-based belief in the sanctity of human life from conception to natural death, to violate their consciences by making them complicit in funding the international abortion lobby.

Biden's executive action, undertaken with the deliberate intent to convey his complete conformity with the Democratic Party's allegiances to Planned Parenthood and the abortion industry, was followed by the confirmation of a succession of stridently pro-abortion appointees to senior administration posts. Most notably, Biden installed Xavier Becerra as secretary of Health and Human Services. Becerra, a Catholic politician who dissents on abortion even more flagrantly than the president, began his campaign to integrate pro-abortion priorities into the framework of the federal government in April by overturning the HHS' prohibition on Title X health-care funding being directed to organizations that are involved with abortion.   Planned Parenthood will be by far the biggest beneficiary of the Title X money that is now poised to flood into the abortion industry. 

Sorry, but it's time end the charade.  President Biden may think that he is a Catholic, but his actions say otherwise.

The bishops need to call him out on it and include Speaker Pelosi in the announcement.  Abortion is a major issue for the Catholic faith, and President Biden, and Speaker Pelosi, can't continue with their games.

The blues are getting worried about the border mess

The blues are getting worried about the border mess: My new AT post about the border.....

Over the last few weeks, we've heard from a lot of border mayors and congressmen about the mess in their neighborhood.  My guess is that a lot of them would have preferred for VP Harris to come to Laredo, Texas than having a virtual talk with the President of Guatemala.

Anyway, it's not surprising that blues are starting to complain about the Biden policy, especially facing reelection in 2022 like Senator Mark Kelly in Arizona.

President Biden said nothing of consequence about the border the other night and the "blues" are not happy.  This is from Bryan Preston:   

It is a border crisis. American citizens in the border states are seeing their vehicles stolen, their property overrun, and their lives endangered by chaos as about 1,000 illegal migrants, aliens, whatever term of art the government-media complex prefers to use today, cross into the United States daily. 

Needless to say, the illegal border crossers are not being screened for COVID. Coyotes don’t provide that service in the vehicles they steal to move their human cargo across the border. The United States largely doesn’t know who they are, where they came from, or where they’re going.

In Texas, it was Democrat Rep. Henry Cuellar who first leaked video of the real conditions on the border to get around Biden’s blackout of media coverage.

Can you understand why?  Who came up with the idea of letting people in in the middle of a pandemic?  We've just seen a silly scene of vaccinated congressmen wearing masks and standing apart from each other.  At the same time, we're letting people into the country who are not screened for COVID.

Worse of all, it's obvious that criminal elements have been the single biggest beneficiary of this mess.  Bad people are making money moving other people.  Don't we call that smuggling?

The blue backlash is coming because Biden's policy is putting a lot of Democrats in political trouble.
