Trump aboard.
  57. 2020 Wednesday: Although it won’t mollify the Democrats, President Trump and members of his administration held a news conference in which, they laid out what the government is doing to prevent the spread of the coronavirus which now is on every continent with the exception of Antarctica.  Although not killing people outside of China, there have been some deaths here and there.  It would make sense that liberal states around the nation would aid ICE in rounding up illegal aliens, housing the homeless, rehabilitating the drug-addicted, and cleaning up the streets.  What is clear is that it behooves everyone to set their politics aside and to get together to stop the spread of this potentially deadly disease given to the world by the communist S-Hole country of China.  Meanwhile, a mass shooting takes place in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, at a Molson Coors brewery operation.  We believe five people are dead.

  59. 2021 Friday: Day 38 of the Biden Regime- as you know, we await every day with awe, awaiting to see what Beijing and their bought-and-paid-for stooges in the White House and in the Democratic Party are up to today.  We know you are as excited as we are so join us for the latest throughout the day.

Beverly Carrick: The World’s Greatest Artist (1927-2012)

Pictures #0001-1495


Most musicians are on a perpetual, lifelong journey and in the world of rock, this is commonplace.  UFO band mates vocalist Phil Mogg and bassist Pete Way reunited to create their own side groups, the delightful Mogg/Way.  Their first album, “Edge of the World,” came out on May 17, 1997 and joining the musical duo were drummer Aynsley Dunbar, Matt Guillory on keyboards, and George Bellas on guitars.  Fans were ecstatic when they heard this album because it was as if it was late 1969-early 1970, 1971 and the OLD UFO sound was back.  We love this album and we know that you will, too, so we hope that everyone rushes out and adds it to their collection.  We contend you will be glad you did.

Author: Chef Hector Santanamos "El Chilote" De Soto CEC-ACF

As have the rest of my colleagues, local Bakersfield street artist, Simone, created these portraits of me that you will see over successive days here at the blog. I guess Simone did ‘okay’ in capturing my likeness; I guess it could have been worse. I was a young cook back in the early 1960's when I commenced my culinary career. I served underneath a Master Chef for many years before striking out on my own. I went up the coast of the Western United States and Canada, working all the way, until I made it to Alaska. From there, I moved to Hawaii for a couple of years (1994-1997) before I returned to Washington State and it was there that I met Stinkbug. El Chilote writes from Shafter, California. El Chilote is a moderate Democrat. Contact me at elchilote2121N@yahoo.com or elchilotegrande10@gmail.com
