Mayan Riviera V A C A T I O N
Our May 2016 trip to Mexico with our friends Cris and Dean included Cancun, Playa Del Carmen, Isla Cozumel, Chichen Itzal, Coba and a big sink hole for swimming and lunch with real Mayan men. All the details.
Look Who came to Dinner
Family get togethers on the Kovarik side of the family are too few and far between. This was our first time meeting Brian and Stephanie's lovely daughter Elizabeth, a dynamo child who acts shy but really seems to know what she wants. Big brown curls and big brown eyes. We were lucky they came out for a SoCal vacation and got to spend a couple of evenings together.
May 24, 2016
A more notable preamble for American politics has never been uttered. It is striking to behold the amount of rhetoric exhausted across America trying to fill the center seat at the White House and how little to recycle the self-serving and staunchly partisan congressmen that have all the power and control over policy, money and who gets to pee in which bathroom.
I can see it all now - America will elect a Democrat President and a Republican congress to fight and argue with...just like 8 years ago. Or, God forbid, visa versa.
Oh now Donald Trump may be a racist, misogynistic homophobe but you have to admit he provides enormous fodder for comedians everywhere. If Trump is elected President many worry that there will be global hell toupée. For me, I think you will see an entirely new Trump that knows how to pimp for the history books. And Hillary Clinton is so much better? We won't have to worry too much about her. She will likely be so busy paying back all the dollars that are feeding her campaign and posting her cronies in positions of power that she won't have time to accomplish anything of significance - much like her tenure as Secretary of State. Bill on the other hand will once again have free reign at the White House and plenty of time to figure out what "it" is.
And speaking of trying to figure out what "it" is, what of poor Sarah Palin? Tina Fey and Lorne Michaels really want her to get something out of all of this. On the ticket with Donald Trump they will all but guarantee a victory for Hillary. But then there's still more than 5 months before the November election and in America, you just never know what will happen. Fortunately we have countless comedians everywhere taking notes and standing by to keep us well informed. SNL will be back from summer break in time to guide us through the November madness and in the mean time we can always count on Trevor Noah and Jimmy Fallon. What an amusing summer we will have.
Bowling 4 Equality
We did it - another year of Bowling for Equality supporting HRC.
The 8th Annual HRC Bowling for Equality event, February 27, 2015 at the world famous Kearney Mesa Bowl. We highlighted the second wave from 3-5 PM under the "Guys Like Us" banner.
If you get a chance to see Kurios by Cirque Du Soleil please do. It is a terrific show. We saw it at Dodgers Stadium in Los Angeles and it will continue to travel around the country. The official title "Kurios: Cabinet of Curiosities" is aptly named and the look and feel of the show is marvelous. It's loaded with great comedy, music, costumes, stage design and circus acts. Check out the official web site and see for yourself.
We celebrated the new year with the LCCC family at the Crystal Palace - dancing, drinking, hooting and hollering were on the menu. The food was lousey but the brandy made up for it.
We celebrate independence and the abundance of freedom we enjoy as Americans remembering that equality is also a symbol of freedom, one we struggle tirelessly to achieve. Every American should have a right to a quality education, full time employment that pays a livable wage, the right to marry the partner of their choice and the right to competent, timely and affordable health care.
