Just like the old movie story - a group of friends got together to “put on a show” for the church fun fair way back in 1992. They presented a program of Cole Porter music. The 3-day gig stretched into many years and many shows as the phone never stops ringing. Everyone wants to book this group for a retirement home, church dinner, women’s club, lodge meeting, holiday party.
The Original Class Act will be doing our American Salute show this summer as soon ar the Coronavirus quarantine is lifted. It is the only one of our 18 shows we will offer since we can do this program outside and with no costume changes.

I know a few people who say they won’t vote for Donald Trump and the only reason they can state is: “I just don’t like him.”
What exactly is it about him that people would dislike? His accomplishments as a non-politician in the past four yeas have been unprecedented.
Do you dislike that he is the most pro-life President in our history? Or do you believe like Joe biden that it iso perfectly OK to murder an innocent baby??
Do you dislike all of the support he has given to religious freedom and religious organizations like the Little Sisters of the Poor? Or do you also want to pay people to have abortions?
Do you dislike that he wants to make it illegal to force taxpayers to fund abortions both here in the US and in foreign countries?
Do you dislike that he wants to help fund parochial and charter schools so that ALL children have an opportunity to go to a GOOD school? You say it is taking money away from Public schools - but we spend more money than any nation on earth on public education and still have crappy schools. Throwing money at the problem has not solved it. Trump wants to solve it.
Do you dislike that we are now energy independent and the largest producer of energy in the world or would you rather pay high prices for gasoline?
Do you dislike that he destroyed ISIS, killed countless terrorists without going to war (even though everyone said we’d be in World War III by now) and kept the peace? Or did you enjoy seeing people in orange jumpsuits having their heads sliced off or being burned alive in cages on the news every week? Remember that? Trump put a stop to that. Is that why you dislike him?
Do you dislike the fact that he's brought home 40 Americans held captive? Two more just this week.
Do you dislike that he earmarked billions to stop the opioid crisis? Do you know anyone who died from an opioid overdose?
Do you dislike him because he is building a wall to keep criminals and illegal drugs from coming into our country and because he respects and defends our country’s borders?
Do you dislike him because he slashed the price for prescription drugs?
Do you dislike that he made cruelty to animals a felony? Or don’t you care about animals?
Do you dislike that he got us out of the job-killing Climate accord that allowed all other countries to pollute and make money or would you rather pay high prices for everything?
Do you dislike that we now have cleaner water and air than before he pulled us out of the job-killing Climate Accord and that our water and air are cleaner than all of the other countries still in the Climate Accord?
Do you dislike that he respects cops, veterans, ICE and all first responders?
Do you dislike the fact that he funded HBCUs (Historically Black Colleges and Universities) for the next 10 years so those folks don’t have to come begging every year as Obama forced them to?
Do you dislike that he made a gay man the ambassador to Germany and that he has many women and gay folks in his administration? I can give you their names - the list is VERY long.
Do you dislike that he works for free, donating his salary to a different charity or government entity each quarter?
Do you dislike that he signed the biggest wilderness protection and conservation bill in a decade designating 375,000 acres as protected land, making him the most significant conservation president since Teddy Roosevelt?
Do you dislike that he brokered the first meaningful Mideast peace deal in decades (and was nominated three times for a Nobel Peace Prize)? Everyone said it would never happen.
Do you dislike that he met with the leader of North Korea, averted war with that country and brought a halt to their aggressive missile testing?
Do you dislike that he signed a law ending the gag-order on pharmacists that prevented them from sharing money-saving options on prescriptions?
Do you dislike that he signed the Save Our Seas Act which funds millions per year to clean tons of plastic and garbage from the ocean? Most of it came here from China. Does that bother you?
Do you dislike that he signed a bill for airports to provide breast-feeding stations for nursing moms?
Does it irk you that he loves America, and puts Americans first? Is that the problem?
Do you dislike that his economic policies have produced the lowest Black unemployment rate ever?
Do you dislike that he created opportunity zones to help minorities?
Do you dislike that he doesn’t rape interns in the Oval Office or have sex with them in the White House swimming pool? Most of you who dislike Trump I notice LOVED John F. Kennedy and/or Bill Clinton.
Do you dislike that he passed prison reform, which gives people a second chance and has made quite a huge difference for minorities in particular? Or do you prefer that they rot in jail?
Do you dislike that he produced the lowest Hispanic unemployment rate ever?
Do you dislike that he passed VA reforms to benefit the people who served our country and defended our freedom?
Do you dislike that he got rid of the job-killing NAFTA trade deal, got tough on trade with China and negotiated new trade deals with Mexico, Canada and other countries that benefit American workers?
Do you dislike that he loves our flag and embraces a policy of unabashed, non-apologetic patriotism?
Do you dislike that he calls out the biased media unlike the other Republican Presidents who just ignored all their lies and dishonesty?
Do you dislike that he’s bringing troops home and ending America’s longest war? Do you want the war to continue? (Two of my neighbors who were serving in Afghanistan are home to stay now!!!!)
Do you dislike that he has made a commitment to end child-trafficking and crimes against humanity and his policies have brought about thousands of arrests and the deportation of thousands MS 13 gang members?
Do you dislike that he extended the offshore drilling ban along both Florida coasts as well as the coasts of Georgia and South Carolina?
Do you dislike that he’s making the world pay their fair share to the United Nations?
Do you dislike that he does not sell out America to other countries, like the leaders prior to him have done? Who? Well…one for example is Joe Biden who we learned this week (thanks to e mails on his son’s computer) sold our country out to the Chinese.
Do you dislike that Trump does not allow his children to make millions in deals with China, Russia and the Ukraine like Joe Biden did? Or would you prefer that he use his office to enrich his family as Biden did?
Do you dislike that he’s forced our NATO allies and others to finally pay their fair share to support important multi-national alliances?
Do you dislike that he moved our embassy in Israel to Jerusalem which is the rightful capital of the Jewish state? Or are you a Nazi?
Do you dislike that he signed the Right To Try law allowing terminally ill patients access to experimental therapies?
Do you dislike that he did not put our national security in jeopard by making illegal deals with the Chinese Communist party as Joe Biden did … which we just learned this week?
This is hardly a complete list of what President Trump has accomplished in four years. There’s actually more — a lot more.
Nobody is asking you to love President Trump as I do. YOU don’t even have to like him.
Any fair-minded person would respect all of the GREAT things President Donald Trump has accomplished for America while facing overwhelming unjustified investigations by treasonist liars who have accomplished nothing?
My last question is this: Can you name just ONE thing Joe Biden has done in 47 years as a politician that was good for America?
Please send it to me for publication in next week’s newsletter. I will be happy to report it as I am a fair journalist.
One of the most delicious and easiest soups to make is this Autumn Harvest recipe. When my sister and her friend were visiting two weeks ago I whipped this up quickly while helping work on a jigsaw puzzle. It was not what I planned to serve that night - I had another soup in mind but forgot to get one ingredient I needed. So…..I had some apple cider (from Aldi’s) left over from making a cake. I had pumpkin. I had apples. It had turned cold here and we all needed a nice warm up. This did the trick.
4 Tbsps. butter
1 cup chopped onion
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1 tsp. curry powder
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
2 cups chicken broth
1 cup apple cider
2 cups pumpkin puree
1 cup half-and-half
1 apple, grated
How To Make It
* Saute onion and garlic in butter about 5 minutes.
* Add the curry powder and red pepper; cook for 1 minute.
* Stir in broth, cider and pumpkin; simmer uncovered for 15 minutes.
* Puree the soup in three or four batches.
* Return the soup to the pot; stir in the half-and-half and grated apple. Cook over low heat for 5 minutes.
