May You Finally Rest In Peace Soul Brother #1 - Don Cornelius

 Donald Cortez "Don" Cornelius 
(September 27, 1936 – February 1, 2012)

On Saturday mornings we would turned on the TV & watch Soul Train as we cleaned. We learned the new dances, laughed at the outfits and never missed the Soul Train line.


We got to see African American performers we wouldn't see otherwise on TV. We were introduced to & inundated by all the products for our skin & hair....things that otherwise we'd never hear of... Soul Train taught us how to have a good time at parties. After all, who has never done the bus stop or made a soul train line?

No matter what was going on in our lives, we made time for the program that made time for us. Don was so cool...he made us proud. He'll be missed but never forgotten. :/

I'm in South Beach Miami Biotch!

Well not right now... but I had the chance to go this year..... TWICE! The first time was in the dead of winter... NICE! I went with my sister on one of her business trips. We were "stuck" there for 2 extra days due to the snow storm back East. The second time I went with my hubby for out 13th wedding anniversary. It was as beautiful and expensive as ever! I won't bore you with a lot of words... but I posted some pictures....

Me and my sister, Regina, spent little time together as she was working. We stayed at the fabulous Shore Club. <== Yea THAT hotel if you clicked the link. It's beautiful, expensive and not without drama!. Ha! However, during our stay extension we got to do 2 amazing tours with Ken Be Tours.. and our lovely driver Oscar... who talks like Marlin Perkins from Mutal Omaha's Wild Kingdom.
Yes, the Shore Club is a beautiful establishment... just not so sure it's worth $500+ a night. Good thing it was a business trip!When left alone, I went out shopping... I got beautiful things like this Liquid Metal bracelet from the Heart & Soul Boutique on Espanola Way by designer Sergio Gutierrez.I got these lovely D&G shades...;) Had to buy Jason a pair of Ray Ban's from Lord & Taylor to quiet him down about the cost.. LOLI got my Faith tee with the Angel Wings in the back!We sought the South Beach Wild Life... LOL This guy was really funny. He dressed in a dress and asked old Motown Trivia questions. He would barely stand still... I had a time getting this photo!Of course I did the Art Deco District Walking Tour. I saw Gianni Versace's house.During our trip to Little Havanna, Miami we got to see a real Cuban making a cigar! Not like on Seinfeld! HahahaaaI bought one!We taste Cuban Coffee.... Taste like cigars!I also took the Gator tour and held an alligator! That was fun!I returned to South Beach with my husband the end of July. The weather was nice. It was hotter back East! We had beautiful weather. We did the Everglades Tour... and even ate gator bites! They taste like chicken with the flakyness of white fish. It was actually good.I even got Jason to hold a gator!We perused Ocean Drive...We watched all the party goers....We even got dresses to find a few parties.... Too much Hip Hop... do you know of some true House Music Clubs in South Beach? Hit me up before I go again next year.I got a Henna Tattoo!We checked out how the other side lives. That will be us in a few years... LOL (I wish!)We chilled by our pool....Ahh this is the life! Hahahahaaaa!
Where did you go this summer?

My Birthday Wish.....

Is to have a relaxing good time.... and I am having a ball! For starters, my sister, Regina, took me out to dinner at Luciano's. We sat in the lovely Tuscan Lounge near the fireplace. It was quite cozy. I enjoyed a glass of Pinot Grigio with my meal; Pappardelle Taormina. Everything was delicious.

Then she wisked me down to the NJPAC, where we enjoyed Oprah presents The Color Purple Musical about Love.

This soul-stirring musical is based on Alice
Walker’s Pulitzer Prize-winning novel and the Oscar-nominated film adaptation by
Steven Spielberg. The Color Purple tells
the unforgettable and inspiring story of Celie, a woman who triumphs over
tremendous odds to find joy in life and her true inner beauty. Nominated for 11
Tony Awards, this landmark theatrical event is fueled by a roof-raising score
that melds jazz, gospel and blues. “The Color Purple is a
soaring, epic tale that made a joyful noise in my heart,” says Time.
This is an exclusive Metro area engagement!
I truly had an amazing time. The play was absolutley wonderful.... probably one of the best I've ever seen. It was colorful, lively, filled with talent and joy. WOW!

Regina, thank you so much for starting out the celebration with such a bang. I really, really enjoyed myself! Thank sis!
My actual birthday is on the 26th.. and I am expecting a few more 'surprises' I'm psyched!
That Girl,
