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 do some - not a lot - of Mexican cooking here at the Castle but whenever I need black beans I always buy the canned Goya Black Beans. They are the BEST. I also love their garbanzo beans. All of their products are the BEST.
I want to support this company because it has become a target of the “woke” left wing lunatic morons who want to boycott Goya because the CEO had the audacity to say something nice about President Donald Trump.
Goya - owned and operated by Mexican immigrants - has done more charity work in the United States than many owned by those who claim to be ”woke.” CEO, Bob Unanue has always said he felt a need to ‘give back” to the country that made his good fortune possible.
On Thursday he joined President Trump at a White House event announcing his Hispanic Prosperity Initiative, an executive order to improve Latinos’ access to educational and economic opportunities. Along with several other Hispanic leaders, he is going to serve as a commissioner of this important campaign.
Unfortunately, Democratic politicians led by that nit-wit Occasional Cortez and other inane activists immediately launched a ridiculous boycott against Goya Foods.
Goya Foods is the largest Hispanic-owned food business in the U.S., employing more than 4,000 people, many of them Latino, and indirectly supporting the livelihoods of countless more. The family-owned company is donating 1 million pounds of chickpeas and 1 million pounds of other products to food banks across the nation to help needy families during the Wuhan Virus pandemic shutdown.
So - naturally the woke weasels want to put him out of business.
Don’t let this happen. Buy Goya products and show the morons - we are not going to aid and abet their cancel culture.
On the other hand I strongly support a boycott of Clorox products. This week Clorox informed Face Book that they would stop advertising on that website until Face Book stops allowing Conservatives like me to voice our opinions.
Does Clorox know how much money I spend on their products? Does the person at Clorox who made this insane decision know exactly who buys their products? They surely must see that the woke protesters they are trying to mollify never use their products. The protestors are filthy in mind, body and mouth. And the protesters don’t have jobs and therefore no money with which to buy their products.
Four years ago Kellogg’s decided to remove their advertising from the Conservative news website Breitbart saying that we Conservatives did not represent their company’s “values.” I was among millions of Conservatives who boycotted them.
Well … we conservatives - when we say we are going to boycott something - we actually do it and Kelloggs lost a ton of money. I still have not bought even one Kelloggs product since I started my boycott. And I found the generic products I switched to be even better.
So - I wrote Clorox a letter telling them that I would no longer be buying any of their garbage since they were attempting to silence my voice on Face Book.
Cancel culture works both ways.
Let’s file this story under “How Hypocritical Is The Main Stream Media”:
In 1996, when Bill Clinton visited Mount Rushmore during his re-election campaign, ABC news called it a place where American ingenuity and American creativity came together and formed an amazing American accomplishment.
In 2008, when Barack Obama campaigned there, CNN called Mount Rushmore a majestic site and every president should visit.
In 2016, Bernie Sanders campaigned there and said he was humbled to be in presence of four of the greatest American presidents. CNN described the scene as awe-inspiring.
Last week President Donald Trump visited Mount Rushmore. CNN called it a celebration of white supremacy and Trump will stand before two former slave owners on land wrestled away from Native Americans.
I was not wild about this cake on the day that I made it. The bottom was “wet” even though I had looked it 10 minutes longer than the original recipe said and even though the cake tester came out dry. But after turning the cake aside down for a day, the moisture dissipated and the cake was really wonderful.
1 cup toasted coconut
1/2 cup toasted coconut (for topping)
1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, room temperature
1 cup sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
3 large eggs
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 cup sour cream
1 can (20 ounces) pineapple tidbits, small pieces drained (overnight)
How To Make It
* Spread coconut on a rimmed baking sheet. Broil 1-2 minutes until lightly browned (watch closely); set aside.
* Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
* Grease and flour a 9-by-5-inch (8-cup) loaf pan; set aside.
* Using an electric mixer on high speed, beat butter, vanilla and sugar until light and fluffy.
* Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
* Reduce speed to low, and alternately add dry ingredients in three parts and sour cream in two, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Mix just until combined
* Dust pineapple tidbits with a little flour to keep them from sinking to the bottom of the pan.
* Using a rubber spatula, fold pineapple and 1 cup toasted coconut into batter.
* Scoop into prepared pan, and smooth top; sprinkle with remaining 1/2 cup coconut.
* Bake on bottom rack of oven until a cake tester inserted in center comes out clean, 75-80 minutes (cover pan with foil halfway through).
* Let cake cool in pan 15 minutes. Remove from pan, and transfer to a wire rack to cool completely. Turn cake over and allow the cake to cool upside down for an hour. Cake should “set” for 24 hours before serving.
