She is pretty and driving a leftist dictator crazy




She is pretty and driving a leftist dictator crazy: As you may know, Sheynnis Palacios of Nicaragua is now Miss Universe.  Based on my Latino heritage, the Miss Universe pageant is like the Super Bowl for most women in the Spanish-speaking world.    I recall my mother and….

Happy # 80 Keith Richards

Image result for keith richards

We say happy birthday to Keith Richards who was born in the UK on this day in 1943.  

Keith made a big name for himself as the lead guitarist for The Rolling Stones.  Along with Mick Jagger, Keith composed most of the group's big hits.  He is one of the most influential rockers in rock history. 

In fact, Rolling Stone ranks Keith among the top guitarists in rock music history.

Keith has also led a crazy and fast life.  Frankly, it's hard to believe that he is 70-plus!  He must have good genes because Keith "has had a lot of fun in life".

Click here for "Jumpin' Jack Flash", one of the best examples of Keith Richards' guitar.

George Strait and Merry Christmas from Texas!



George Strait has sold over 50 million records since he hit the national charts in the early 1980's.

He also recorded "When it's Christmas time in Texas", one of the best Christmas pop-country tunes.

Merry Christmas from Texas......




"When it's Christmas time in Texas

It's a very special time for me

In Texas we'll be swingin'

Around the Christmas tree

Dancin' to a Christmas melody

When it's Christmas time in Texas

It might look just like a summer day

There may not be snow in San Antonio
But it's a Texas Christmas to me
When Santa Claus crosses over the border
It'll sound a little different when he sings
Cause he'll hear those twin fiddle's playin'
A Christmas song with a touch of western swing
There may not be snow in San Antonio
But it's a Texas Christmas to me
When it's Christmas time in Texas
I love to hear those Christmas carolers sing
People on the go
Children's faces all aglow
Wonderin' what Santa's gonna bring
Grandpa's been chasin' grandma around
Tryin' to catch her neath the misteltoe
Everything is right
The lone star shinin' bright
But it's a Texas Christmas to me
When Santa Claus crosses over the border
It'll sound a little different when he sings
Cause he'll hear those twin fiddle's playin'
A Christmas song with a touch of western swing
There may not be snow in San Antonio
But it's a Texas Christmas to me
And here's wishin' you all a merry Christmas
Merry Christmas from Texas and me"

HELLO FROM TEXAS: George Strait - Jingle bell rock


GEORGE STRAIT
JINGLE BELL ROCK

"Jingle Bell, Jingle Bell, Jingle Bell Rock
Jingle bell swing and jingle bells ring
Snowing and blowing up bushels of fun
Now the jingle hop has begun
Jingle Bell, Jingle Bell, Jingle Bell Rock
Jingle bells chime in jingle bell time
Dancing and prancing in Jingle Bell Square In the frosty air
What a bright time, it's the right time To rock the night away 
Jingle bell time is a swell time To go gliding in a one-horse sleigh
Giddy-up jingle horse, pick up your feet 
Jingle around the clock
Mix and a-mingle in the jingling feet
That's the jingle bell, That's the jingle bell,
That's the jingle bell rock....."

Your Spanish lesson: A Christmas song by Luis Aguile



Here is a Spanish lesson for all of friends.....a Christmas song in Spanish......the singer is Luis Aguile of Chile and it translates to "come to my home from Christmas".....it is about the people who won't be with you this season.......by the way, it was Aguile who wrote that song "Cuando sali de Cuba".........

you can get the song by clicking HERE.

Click for the song:


"Tú que estás lejos de tus amigos, De tu tierra y de tu hogar, 
Y tienes pena, pena en el alma, Porque no dejas de pensar. 
Tú que esta noche no puedes Dejar de recordar, 

Quiero que sepas, que aquí en mi mesa, Para ti tengo un lugar.

Por eso y muchas cosas más, Ven a mi casa esta Navidad. 

Por eso y muchas cosas más, Ven a mi casa esta Navidad. 

Tú que recuerdas quizá a tu madre O a un hijo que no está, 

Quiero que sepas, que en esta noche, Él te acompañará. 

No vayas solo por esas calles, Queriéndote aturdir, 

Ven con nosotros y a nuestro lado Intenta sonreir. 

Por eso y muchas cosas más, Ven a mi casa esta Navidad.
Tú que has vivido, siempre de espaldas, Sin perdonar ningún error, 
Ahora es momento de reencontrarnos, Ven a mi casa, por favor.
Ahora ya es tiempo, de que charlemos, Pues nada se perdió, 
En estos días, todo se olvida, Y nada sucedió. 
Por eso y muchas cosas más, Ven a mi casa esta Navidad. 
Por eso y muchas cosas más, Ven a mi casa esta Navidad. 
Por eso y muchas cosas más, Ven a mi casa esta Navidad...."

Merry Christmas is the right message


Image result for keep christ in christmas images
Christmas is too commercial, too material. There is not enough Christ in Christmas.

For years, I have objected to the excessive commercialization of Christmas.   I don't like it at all.  I hate hearing Christmas music on the day after Thanksgiving.  In fact, some of our radio stations go 24/7 Christmas after Thanksgiving. I don't like it.

However, the attack on Christmas is just as crazy.

The US is a Christian majority nation. We were founded under Judeo-Christian traditions.

No one should be offended by "Merry Christmas" or nativity symbols. 

I am not upset when I see Jewish symbols related to holidays. I think that it's great that everyone can practice their religion freely.

"Seculars" have gone crazy, from "Under God" in the pledge to this massive attack on Christian symbols.

I am happy that Bill O'Reilly has made a big issue of this. I am happier that Americans are putting pressure on stores to display Christmas symbols.

Again, thanks to Bill O'Reilly for his work.
