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 am not one who puts a lot of store in The Supremes. And, no, I am not talking about the 50s singing group. I am talking about the Supreme Court Judges.
One of them died last night - the notorious RGB - Ruth Bader Ginsberg - at the age of 87 after a long battle with pancreatic cancer. Sympathies to her family.
That being said - I am not too upset seeing her go because Ginsberg was also notoriously left wing liberal. She voted in favor of everything I am against and against everything for which I am in favor. So - sorry, not sorry.
But now there is the issue of replacing her on the highest court in the land. I, of course, want to see an originalist on the court - someone who abides by the Constitution not one who wishes to interpret the Constitution to mean something which is progressive.
I want our laws to reflect the original intent of our founders.
But appointing a Conservative to the bench does not mean we will get Conservative votes. I will never forget the day that George W. Bush swore in Chief Justice John Roberts. We popped champagne corks. I actually cried tears of joy. At last an “originalist” … or so we thought. Most of his rulings up to this Supreme appointment had been conservative - but once on the bench Roberts turned into a raving left wing lunatic.
I attribute this to the fact that while President Bush vetted Roberts himself he failed to vet the wife - a progressive. Mr. Roberts has to go home each night and face liberal Mrs. Roberts - so how do you think a man who wants some “affection” is going to vote?
And don’t tell me that his bedroom activities would not affect his vote. SEX rules everything. Sex and money. And so my joy at his appointment soon turned into dismay and disgust.
I could go on and on listing all of his decidedly dopey decisions but that’s water over the damn. A done deal. We have to move forward.
And so President Trump now has the opportunity to appoint a third Supreme which is driving the Democrat loonies insane. They are demanding that the appointment be made by the “next” person elected President because they think it is going to be the left wing lunatic Sleepy Creepy Neck-Sniffing Very Confused Hidin’ Joe Biden.
I would like to remind all the Dems that Donald Trump was elected to serve as President for FOUR years. Not three years and eight months. (Although Trump technically has not had ANY months of being able to be president thanks to the Dems constant attempt at a coup with the Russia BS, the Ukraine BS and a hundred other things they have tried to drum up to drum him out of office.)
One of the main reasons some people voted for Donald Trump instead of Hilary Clinton was his promise to appoint originalists to the Supreme Court. And so President Trump has the absolute right and responsibility to name the next Supreme Court Justice and he must do it immediately. We cannot have a split court going into the November election.
It may be that the court will have to umpire the contentious election because the Dems have insisted on cheating by mail-in vote and ballot harvesting. Right now there are technically four conservative judges and four progressive moron Supremes. If there is a tie - then what? Are we going to have President Nancy Marie Antoinette (let them eat ice cream) Pelosi as president (but only when she is not getting her hair done in a salon closed by Covid restrictions but open to just her).
This appointment must be made now and confirmed before the November election.
I strongly urge Mr. President to pick Barbara Lagoa. Born in 1967, she is a United States Judge of the Court of Appeals for the Eleventh Circuit. Prior to becoming a federal judge, she was the first Hispanic woman to be appointed as a Justice on the Supreme Court of Florida.
You may remember her as one of a dozen pro bono lawyers who represented the Miami family of Elián González in 2000.
Then I want to see if the left would dare try to destroy a Latina Woman like they tried to destroy Brett Kavanaugh.
This is the most amazing chocolate cake and it is do easy to make. Just be aware that this is enough to make THREE deep 9” layers. You can use two layers for one cake and save the third for another time. It freezes well.
1 1/2 cups milk
1 1/2 tsps. lemon juice
3 cups all-purpose flour
3 cups granulated sugar
1 1/2 cups unsweetened cocoa powder
1 Tbsp. baking soda
1 1/2 tsps. baking powder
1 1/2 tsps. salt
4 large eggs
1 1/2 cups warm water
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1 Tbsp. pure vanilla extract
How To Make It
* Mix together milk and lemon juice - let sit for 5 minutes.
* Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
* Grease and flour THREE 9-inch cake rounds.
* Mix together flour, sugar, cocoa, baking soda, baking powder, and salt in a stand mixer using a low speed until combined.
* Add eggs, sour milk, warm water, oil and vanilla. Beat on a medium speed until smooth. Be sure to scrape the bottom of the bowl.
Divide batter among the three pan. I found that it took just over 3 cups of the batter to divide it evenly.
* Bake 30-35 minutes until a cake tester comes out clean.
* Cool on wire racks for 15 minutes and then turn out the cakes onto the racks and allow to cool completely.
* Frost with your favorite frosting.
Cream Cheese Frosting
This is one of my favorite frostings. This amount makes enough to do just the middle and top of a double layer 9” cake.
8 ounces cream cheese
1 cup confectioners' sugar
2 tsps. vanilla
1⁄2 cup heavy cream
How To Make It
* Place cream cheese, vanilla and confectioners' sugar in a mixing bowl, and whip with an electric beater until smooth.
* Add cream and beat again until you have a spreadable consistency.
* Refrigerate until firm.
