    I’m pretty sure they shot a documentary…..will be fun to watch:

      Basically, 5% of the island’s population turned out to attend.

      • March 28, 2016 at 11:17 pm

        What is the population, LL? I heard there were a few million that came out…am I in the right ballpark 😕

        • March 28, 2016 at 11:21 pm

          11.27 million. I heard it was 500K who came out.

            Gotcha! Ol Fidel threw a hissy fit today didn’t he 😀 😀 😀 …..even CNN Havana chief said that Castro Bros were taken aback at how adept President Obama was running circles around them and cited the comedy sketch as one example…..

            • March 28, 2016 at 11:30 pm

              Fidel is a pendejo. Which is why this talk about “revolution” gets my panties in a bunch. My family went thru revolution. It’s not pretty.

                Dan le Batard was pretty upset all last week but held his emotions in check and was somewhat open minded about the visit. Papi never mentioned anything on ‘Highly Questionable’ but it is impossible to be in your shoes and really know what families went through.

                  I’m fully supportive of the normalization with Cuba, as the embargo was not working. But yeah, my middle class dad had his barber shop expropriated by the Communists, which I’m sure led to his decline in health once they made it to the States. Because of that history I have no love for revolutionary fantasies.

                  • March 29, 2016 at 1:43 am

                    As an observer and one who lived through the Cold War, I remember when Castro invited the Soviet Union to place nuclear tipped missiles pointed at US cities,thus provoking the crisis that almost brought WWIII. I remember telling my mother we should pack the car and leave our home, heading into the wilderness because our home town and the SAC base located there would be nuked. We were that close. So when Bernie sings accolades of Castro’s revolution and dictatorship and how it should be model for the US and the world, I want to puke. These young people don’t read history and they didn’t live through any of this. They just shrug this marxist history off.

    [I’m so OT with this comment, but had to share. Sometimes you talk-talk w/ your kids (parents, you know what I mean by this), and think it’s in one ear & out the other for your child. Here’s proof that you should just keep the talk going, no matter what! My child blew me away with this post he did a while back & still on his website, which I’m now enjoying, I love a beautiful turn of words, and that in our time, through simple chores, I opened up life’s quirks and magnificent possibilities, if one allows their entry. It was those simple things that were memorable to him, not the great trips, or the the childhood events marathon-ed from work to get to, etc. It was those chats in the kitchen, while cooking something together. …. In his words] :

    One of the best pieces of life advice my mom gave me was writing advice. I was at her house in DC back in January. She was cooking a meal. I was venting writer’s block related frustrations when she told me this: Don’t worry so much about the final outcome of a piece. You’ll get hit with inspiration every day, whether it’s a word, a phrase, a picture, or whatever. Just make sure to jot it all down. Even if it doesn’t make absolute sense yet in terms of the bigger picture and all you have are a bunch of unconnected dots in front of you, document every little thing that sets off your lightbulb. They set it off for a reason. Reasons will go about their day unmoved by your schedule and are prone to being fashionably late. Trust that that reason existed before you were able to comprehend it. Eventually the dots accumulate and their connections begin to present themselves. Words grow into sentences, sentences into paragraphs, and so on. Those connections should never be your concern.

    This really put me at ease because, I don’t know if this sounds weird or not, I believe everything’s connected and follows the same basic law. She’s a single mother and taught me how to cook for myself when I was a child. I started off going step by step with recipes she printed out. Eventually I became more like her and less concerned with following a standard. I lost all sense of expectation. It used to be “I’m going to make this specific thing and need these specific ingredients to do it.” Now it’s more “I’ve grabbed all of these ingredients that I think will go well together, now what do I plan to make with them?” I learned to allow things to become what they become. Trust your intuition and knowledge. If you go in without expectations, the two are left with the room to do what they do. Now you can drop me in any kitchen and I’ll make do with what’s in it. I believe everything’s connected and follows the same basic law.

    While she was explaining the writing process, she was also explaining the cooking process. She was also explaining relationships, friendships, business, or really just fucking anything. Allow things to become what they become.

    PS: This isn’t advice you’re supposed to follow through and through, by the way. Planning is also important. There’s a time and place. Play it by ear. And that’s the point.

      Aw now that put a tear or two in my eye this morning.

      That’s quite a wise young man you’ve got there Gazelle… and a beautiful writer. You must be pleased beyond measure. Hugs to you both!

        Dearest Dudette, hope you get this message. I’m so behind in catching up with TOD. Chips is going to give me a ticket for “drive-by posting” soon! I thank you so much for your lovely comment. Yes, my son is my heart, & a pretty amazing young man (not just Mama talking here!). That piece is beautiful to me because of it’s unpretentious honesty. It meant so much to me because it was “cooked” in a lovely eclectic dish of love. 🙂

      What a wonderful story. It’s so amazing when our children show how adult they are.

        Hello there, MT! I’m still pinching myself sometimes. My Mom always told me, grow a thick skin when they’re in those terrible teen years, watch, wait, and they’ll be human again around 19 or 20. YIKES!, I said to my Mom, who can survive 12 years of this. Her response: I did! LOL!

      This is a cool piece of writing, Gazelle. Well done to both your son, and you!
      Man, I wish I had had access to this – especially the cooking part 😉 – when my offspring was younger. 😀 😀

        Awww, VC, my dear, I have read all the back & forth about what I think might be considered food in some parts of TOD ({doing the whisper voice} cheese puffs?) Joking aside, it’s never too late to do the cooking part — learning together, & laughing at the mess-ups together. We’ve had more fun trying out stuff, chit-chatting about everything as we did, and then cracking up if something didn’t quite come out as we expected, but we were going to eat it anyway. And create a “sauce” or topping by blending all the fruit in the house that could work in that experiment & make that that dish a pièce de résistance. Some of those “blends” we should have written down, including the conversations that created them! LOL!

    Coming in here late, Gazelle, but I enjoyed your son’s story about how he was inspired by both your cooking and your writing advice. I am a writer and a recipe inventor and I never realized the creative process shared by both of these arts until I read this excerpt from your son’s post.

    Bravo!

          I am so sorry that the landlord can’t be accommodating especially if the windows let in cold air. My windows are supposed to be energy efficient and I guess they are compared to the previous ones that were like sheets of paper. I still use more heat in the winter and air conditioning in the summer. I have wood slates that I leave and wood shutters that I leave closed in extreme heat and cold. At the hardware stores sometimes they carry a product that you cover the windows with plastic and use a hair dryer to seal it to keep cool air out and it really worked. Or just use an old blanket or flannel sheet to cover the windows. It’s no fun being cold especially when you don’t feel well.

    Thanks for the Frank Sinatra. Never gets old
