Hillary Clinton Meets a Beatle: Paul McCartney

Last week, Hillary Clinton met with Paul McCartney and his wife Nancy for 30 minutes in Cleveland, Ohio. Later, Paul tweeted out a picture of himself and Hillary saying that “She’s with me.”

The meeting occurred before Paul’s concert at the Ouicken Loans Arena.

Hillary Secures the Democratic Nomination for President!

What can I say more about Hillary’s acceptance speech? She was excellent and well polished like a real nominee running for president. It was a million times better than Donald Trump’s shoutout last Thursday night (he simply yelled at the TV camera for 75 minutes).

Hillary’s speech had substance and meaning. She is with us. Donald Trump, on the other hand, is too much of a loose cannon and doesn’t have any substance to what he was shouting about last week.

Hillary made history. I’m with her!!!

Btw, both former President Bill Clinton’s and President Barack Obama’s speeches were great too. Chelsea’s was good as well.

Let’s face the DNC was looked more like a convention, instead of that carnival atmosphere at the RNC we all saw last week.

Back at WordCamp Boston 2016 Today at BU

#WCBOS I am once again at WordCamp Boston at Boston University right now. It’s a little bit before the 5 Ways to Contribute WordPress lecture. I already attended 2 lectures so far: 101 Ways to Rock as a Freelancer and How to Get 100 content ideas in an hour. Learning new stuff, but also hearing some familiar stuff as well.

Being an independent blogger is hard. Trying to make the jump into making income as a freelancer/self-employed individual is not easy. Been trying to do this before there was a thing called a blog.

I Am At WordCamp Boston 2016 at BU Today!

#WCBOS. Hell, yes! I’m at WordCamp right now listening to a lecture about designing and theming your WordPress site. I might make a few changes to this blog, but I haven’t decided yet where to go with changing its appearance.

I’ve been to previous WordCamps over the years. This year, I have a Mac laptop and an iPad with me as I attend this event.

Afterwards, I am heading to Revere Beach to check out the sand sculptures and fireworks.

#Pray For Dallas! Blue Lives Matter!

The last few days have been very depressing for this country. Five police officers killed by a sniper during a Black Lives Matter peace march. The sniper wasn’t with Black Lives Matter at all, even though he was a black man.

Killing innocent police officers is not the answer. It won’t help anyone. There are some police officers who should not be police officers in the first place. Also, I am not anti-police. I don’t like the fact that some police officers have used excessive force against a black suspect when it wasn’t appropriate.

How many times do I have to say “Stop the killing!” in my blog? This country is turning into a very dangerous place to live in.

Once Again, Stop The Killing!!! #Black Lives Matter!

We just celebrated the 240th birthday of the United States of America earlier this week, and then two black men have been killed mercilessly in the last couple of days. Why is this still happening? Why are the police shooting them without giving them the benefit of the doubt? They weren’t trying to kill the policemen in the first place. Philando Castile was reaching for his wallet to show his license and registration,not his gun. He wasn’t dangerous to the police. Two policemen were on top of Alton Sterling who was on the ground below them when they shot him in the back and chest. He wasn’t a danger to them.

Why are the politicians still whining about Hillary’s emails when there are real problems out there? The email case in now closed. Try to tackle things that are more serious, Politicians!

Please, check these op-eds from the New York Times Newspaper:

When Will The Killing Stop?

What White America Fails to See

Michael Brown’s Mom on Alton Sterling and Philando Castile

I’ve seen the videos, and the police brutality is obvious. Wake up, America! Stop the killing!!!

Standing With Orlando!!!! Stop The Killing!!!!!!

Once again there has been a mass shooting. It was a week ago in the early hours of Sunday, July 12, at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida. A man seething in hate took an automatic gun and murdered 49 people inside the nightclub called Pulse. Why such hated towards people you don’t even know? This killer was eventually killed by the police.

I grew up in this country and had a tough childhood that included bullying. I never wanted to pick up a gun and go on a killing spree. No one knew including me that I was autistic. There were people who hated me because I was different. I never understood why they would hate me so much.

It seems so much easier to hate than love. It’s very wrong to feel that way. If you feel hate, find a peaceful, non-violent way to get rid of it. Is that so hard to do?

Rest In Peace, Mark Parenteau of WBCN!

Sad news! Former WBCN-FM afternoon disc jockey Mark Parenteau has passed away last Friday (June 3). He was 66 years old. Mark worked at the Rock of Boston (WBCN) from 1978 to 1997. He was one of the best radio personalities in Boston for many decades. He will be missed.

See this link for more info:
http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/telegram/obituary.aspx?n=mark-parenteau&pid=180221024&fhid=6741

I had the pleasure of meeting Mark Parenteau many times during the 1990s when I volunteered at WBCN assisting weekend DJ Melissa from 1994 to 2000. The last time I saw Mark was in 2009 a short time after WBCN-FM became an internet only radio station. Charles Laquidara, WBCN’s former morning disc jockey, held a party for former/current WBCN people at the Paradise Rock Club at the time.

Incidentally, the online WBCN station went off the air in January 2016.

This is the second death of a former WBCN personality this year. Back in late April, former sidekick to Charles Laquidara, Patrick Murray passed away of a sudden cardiac arrest. He was only 52 years old.

Hillary Has Reached a Milestone: She Has Enough Delegates!

The Associated Press has declared Hillary Clinton as the presumptive Democratic Nominee for the President of the United States.  She has already reached the number of delegates.  There were enough super delegates and delegates for her to reach that magic number of 2,383.

The New York Times has reported that it is almost 8 years to the day in 2008 that she ended her campaign and started supporting Barack Obama for President.  She is making history at this moment, and it’s the night before the June 7 primaries in several states that include California.

Excellent work, Hillary!

Harriet Tubman To Be On The $20 Bill

Congratulations to Harriet Tubman for being picked to be the new face of the $20 bill. She was always a personal hero to me since I was a little girl. She was an American abolitionist, humanitarian, and an armed scout and spy for the United States Army during the American Civil War.

Andrew Jackson will be on the back of the $20 bill when the big change takes place. The prediction is to do it around the year 2020 when it’s the 100th anniversary of the 19th amendment.
