Joe Musgrove, second from left and a San Diego native, threw the first no hitter in the San Diego Padres 53 year history as an MLB team in more than 8,000 Padre games on 4/09/2020. His catcher, Victor Caratini all the way to the right, caught for the last pitcher who threw a no hitter in the MLB last September 13, 2020 as a Chicago Cub making him the first catcher ever to catch two consecutive MLB no hitters for two different ball clubs.
But if you try sometime,
you might find,
you get what you need.

“For there is always light if only we are brave enough to see it, if only we are brave enough to be it.”
It was worth my time, hopefully it’s worth yours.

Real Presidents are respectful, have good character qualities and aren’t petty.
No they aren’t perfect, no human is. However they continually march toward betterment of themselves and of society.
Real Presidents are good people. Real presidents lead.

London gay life in the 1980s.
While I wasn’t in London at the time, I did start going to gay clubs while still in high school in 1981. This isn’t exactly my history but it’s not unlike my history.
For an Auntie Mame fanboy like myself, finding this interview in my YouTube feed this morning was pure gold.
Life truly is a banquet!

Fearsome gives it two mustache tips up!
Fearsome and I wish to personally say Thank You to Pete Buttigieg for turning his life upside down during his history making and ground breaking run for President. Pete, you are a role model. We also wish to thank Chasten for his loving support of his husband’s candidacy. Chasten, you are a role model.
We thank you both for living your truth and working to better not only our country but to better the lives for all of it’s citizens.
We know that this isn’t goodbye, but the turning of a page into a new chapter of your life changing inspirational leadership toward a better future. With you two in our world we know it’s gonna be bright!
Barbara Jordan’s opening speech from Nixon’s 1974 hearing still rings true today.
Let the inquiries begin.
50 years ago today:
Jefferson Airplane – White Rabbit – Grace Slick – Woodstock – August 17, 1969
I don’t remember Woodstock even though one of the earliest memories I have is the Lunar landing in 1969. Woodstock is in good company as I don’t remember Stonewall either. Even though 1969 is spotty in my memory bank, I am happy that I was around to at the least remember a few events that happened in that year packed with many historical landmarks.
Quite the Gay history find. Therefore we post.
Santa Monica Boulevard 1980.
Today marks the 50th anniversary of the launch of Apollo 11.
With Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin on board, Apollo 11 would land man on the surface of Earth’s only moon 4 days later on July 20, 1969. This first ever lunar landing is one of my very first memories.
The Apollo mission occurred during one of our country’s most turbulent times some 9 years after one of our greatest presidents set a simple, yet difficult, clear goal with a time limit. Good leaders challenge us to grow, great leaders bring us together. It is only together that we can achieve great things.
In honor of yet another 50th anniversary of history, I post my favorite musical memory of 1969.
🎵Harmony and understanding🎶 🎵Sympathy and trust abounding🎶
Worthy goals for a society. May the lyrics of this 50 year old tune inspire and enlighten our society toward better.
