Trey Songz at the Kodak on 7/28/14…Awesome!

This is why “We Love L.A.,” so my niece is in her social media zone, and drives from Long Beach to Hollywood, probably in traffic cause she heard Trey will be there. So, I’m hearing about this second-hand, she’s got iPhone video and everything of how close she sat, and you can hear the crowd screaming in the background, and she is EXCITED. Here it where it get’s good (in one breath), “Auntie he was only slated to do, three songs, he stayed on for almost 2 hours, taking requests, just singing to us, until they literally kicked him off the stage.” She was so hyped, that the energy and happiness was contagious. It was like I was there with her. So, Trey Songz, very impresseive! Her word “So, Awesome!” Were you there L.A…Say something.

The Immigration Situation

L.A. what’s really going on! The people are at the border in Murrietta trying to turn around buses of people. And the people in Texas are like, we are not processing these illegals send them to California. I’m actually torn on this one, because I think there is already a process for coming in to the U.S. legally, and real honest I think about my tax dollars, and my own economic struggle. But, yes there is a but, I’m a Mom, and if I saw a chance to get to a place where my baby (She’s grown)could be safe, I’d probably take that chance. Especially if she was in harm’s way. On the other hand I’ve heard stories of people who have lived in this country all their lives, worked and paid taxes but their illegal. And it was also said that if these immigrants get deported and they were raised here, they go back, they are targeted, they don’t survive. But, here’s the on the other hand, L.A. is overcrowded, the people who are already here are struggling to find jobs. And the people say they don’t even respect our laws, they broke the law to get here. The solution is somewhere in middle, I hope for the best compromise. Say Something L.A., What do you think?

Farewell to Some Phenomenal People

I was just thinking about Maya Angelou and Ruby Dee. Two very phenomenal women, and then Bobby Womack, they have gone on to their next journey. I loved me some “phenomenal woman” and “Still I Rise.” And Mr. Womack as I’ve gotten a little older, I appreciate your music more and more. This is my homage for the gifts you all shared with the world. I’ll treasure the gifts. Say Somethin’ L.A.
