“If you can’t love yourself, how the hell you gonna love somebody else?” - RuPaul - - - - - - - - - - - “if by a "Liberal" they mean someone who looks ahead and not behind, someone who welcomes new ideas without rigid reactions, someone who cares about the welfare of the people -- their health, their housing, their schools, their jobs, their civil rights, and their civil liberties -- someone who believes we can break through the stalemate and suspicions that grip us in our policies abroad, if that is what they mean by a "Liberal," then I'm proud to say I'm a "Liberal.” - John F.

And you couldn’t have that special day the way your friends do – you know, wear the ring on your finger and have it mean the same thing as everybody else. Just put yourself in that person’s shoes. It makes me feel sick to my stomach …. When I shared a picture of my tattoo on my Twitter page and said, ‘ALL LOVE is equal,’ a lot of people mocked me – they said, ‘What happened to you? You used to be a Christian girl!’ And I said, ‘Well, if you were a true Christian, you would have your facts straight. Christianity is about love.’ The debate resulted in a lot of threats and hate mail to people who agreed and disagreed with me. At one point I had to say, ‘Dude, everyone lay off.’ Can’t people have friendly debates about sensitive topics without it turning into unnecessary threats?” - Pop star Miley Cyrus on her marriage equality tattoo - - - - - - - - - - -

Raised by a Mexican Mom? Then This is For You!

It's been forever since I posted a blog, so here it goes.

Javier Moreno over at Buzzfeed listed 28 things people who were raised by a Mexican mom know to be true,  And I'd have to say he's on point with some of these.  

We were not catholic so the candles didn't exist, and the quinceaƱera? Not so much.  Lol.  But trust me, I have family who represent this entire list and you know who you are!  LMAO.

Thank you sharing Michele!

1. She believed VapoRub (or Vick's) was a cure for everything.

2. Along with Sprite.

3. If you scraped your knee, you could always expect the “Sana, sana” rhyme.

You would feel the wrath of the dreaded chancla.


There was no way you were leaving the house without finishing your chores.

Whenever she watched novelas you were given a play by play.

Check out the entire list here. And if you haven't seen "The Secret of the Chancla" you can't catch that here. Hilarious!
