Mickey Mouse Tie by Cervantes – Made in USA

Scored these two “near mint” vintage Mickey Mouse (basketball) Ties by Cervantes this week at a local thrift store.  Did a little research, and very happy with our finds!

Walt Disney Productions Made in USA 100% Qiana Nylon

Qiana: a silky nylon fiber developed in 1962 at the DuPont Experimental Station by Stanley Brooke Speck and introduced to the public by Dupont in 1968.
Qiana is described in US patent 3249591 as a polyamide fabric having improved resilience and silk-like hand, combined with superior wash-wear performance.

Walt Disney incorporated as Walt Disney Productions on December 16, 1929. Four companies were brought under the corporate name replacing Walt and Roy Disney’s partnership: Walt Disney Productions, Ltd.; Walt Disney Enterprises; Liled Realty & Investment Company, Ltd.; and Disney Film Recording Company, Ltd. The company retained the name for more than 50 years until it was renamed The Walt Disney Company in February, 1986.

NOTE: Items marked Walt Disney Productions (WDP) are vintage and made before 1986. It’s a great way to date Disney souvenirs.

king

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Born on January 15, 1929 – Murdered on April 4, 1968

Martin-Luther-King-Jr.-Day

“We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools.”

Abraham, Martin And John
written by Dick Holler in 1968
Has anybody here seen my old friend Abraham,
Can you tell me where he’s gone?
He freed a lotta people, but it seems the good die young
But I just looked around and he’s gone.
Has anybody here seen my old friend John,
Can you tell me where he’s gone?
He freed a lotta people, but it seems the good die young
But I just looked around and he’s gone.
Has anybody here seen my old friend Martin,
Can you tell me where he’s gone?
He freed a lotta people, but it seems the good die young
But I just looked around and he’s gone.
Didn’t you love the things they stood for?
Didn’t they try to find some good for you and me?
And we’ll be free,
Someday soon it’s gonna be one day.
Has anybody here seen my old friend Bobby,
Can you tell me where he’s gone?
I thought I saw him walkin’ up over the hill
With Abraham, Martin and John.

HAPPY HANNUKAH 2017!

Happy Hannukah 2017!

“Chag Sameach!” (Happy Holiday in Hebrew)

15781451_1630519140307979_5879434707419914438_n

Happy Hannukah 2017!

Wishing all my friends and loyal readers
a very happy, safe and celebratory holiday season!

25289526_2059701027389786_7665211535962351863_n

Happy Hannukah 2017! It’s beginning to look a lot like latkes!

How to make Potato Latkes (potato pancakes):
3 potatoes (peeled and grated), small onion (1/2 grated, 1/2 finely chopped). Add 2 eggs (beaten), 1 tsp salt, 1/2 tsp black pepper, 1/2 cup flour and 1/2 tsp baking powder. Mix ingredients well. Heat cooking oil to med high in large frying pan. Spoon 1 large tablespoon at a time into oil. Cook until crispy golden brown on each side. Drain and pat dry on paper towel and serve warm with applesauce and sour cream.

On the first night of Hannukah we also made a tasty meatloaf and steamed broccoli & carrots with our potato latkes for Hannukah dinner:

 

And then we sat down and ate our lovely meal while we watched the election results from Alabama come in.

And of course don’t forget your Jew attorney!*
(now time for some POLITICAL COMMENTARY!)

 

The Hannukah Miracle of 2017:
RACIST REPUBLICAN BIGOT AND PEDOPHILE ROY MOORE LOST THE ALABAMA SPECIAL ELECTION FOR THE U.S. SENATE to Democrat Doug Jones tonight!

Let’s review where the United States is now since the Russians stole the 2016 election:

 

*Trump endorsed a racist Republican pedophile for the United States Senate
(and the Republican party supported this criminal’s campaign).

Roy Moore’s wife Kayla’s election eve soundbite — “One of our attorneys is a Jew” — became an instant punchline, summing up “good ole boy” Republican Roy Moore’s long history of hate, bigotry, anti-semitism and racism.

171212_pol_kayla_moore_jews_16x9_384

Kayla Moore: “One of our attorneys is a Jew”

“Fake news would tell you that we don’t care for Jews,” she told supporters, reading from notes as Roy Moore stood behind her. “I tell you all of this because I’ve seen it all, so I just want to set the record straight while they’re here.”

She waved to the reporters in the back of the room — many of them from New York and Washington — as the audience laughed, applauded and whistled, and Roy Moore smiled.

“One of our attorneys is a Jew” she said with a smirk and a sarcastic tone.

tenor

Thank you Kayla Moore (you ignorant @#$*)

NOTE: Huge thanks to the African-American population of Alabama for coming out and voting to save the United States from a “cracker, ass, cracker” like racist Roy Moore.

What the f*ck is he talking about?

May Day is an international public holiday celebrated specifically as “Labour Day” or “International Workers’ Day” around the world.

1-May-Day-2015-Wishes-Ecards-Quotes-Message-SMS-Images-4

In 1904 the International Socialist Conference in Amsterdam, the Sixth Conference of the Second International, called on “all Social Democratic Party organisations and trade unions of all countries to demonstrate energetically on the First of May for the legal establishment of the 8-hour day, for the class demands of the proletariat, and for universal peace.” The date was chosen for “International Workers’ Day” to commemorate the Haymarket affair in Chicago on May 4, 1886. May Day has always been a day for demonstrations by various socialist, communist and anarchist groups since the Second International.

Mayday

May Day is one of the most important holidays in the People’s Republic of China, North Korea, Cuba and Russia. May Day celebrations usually include large parades with displays of military strength.

TELL THE USA TO DUMP TRUMP!

http://www.facebook.com/usadumptrump

The United States has elected a CRIMINAL CON MAN with no morals or ethics. Trump is ignorant and can barely read. He doesn’t know history, politics, world geography, science or correct grammar. He surrounds himself with the worst people. He has ties to Putin and Russia. He is guilty of treason, fraud and sexual assault. Trumpsters take your victory lap today, because the future doesn’t look good for people who won’t wear a red cap and everyone else. Trump belongs in prison not the White House.

“SHUT THE F*CK UP DONNY!”
10 Reasons to DumpTrump:
Trump is an Ignorant, Racist, Sexist, Anti-Semetic, Pathological Liar!
Trump mocks the Disabled, war heroes, POWs, Veterans and Gold Star Families!
Trump disparages Women, Mexicans, Latinos, Muslims and African-Americans!
Trump sexually assaults women and is an alleged rapist!
Trump lies, cheats and steals from hard working people!
Trump insults world leaders and threatens our international alliances!
Trump has business dealing with Russia, China, Mexico, Cuba and Saudi Arabia!

These recipes are collected from our computers’ hard drives and these pages and Blogs will remain “UNDER CONSTRUCTION” as we continue adding fun stuff to each one as we find it. Enjoy!
