The 2016 Al Smith Dinner, a HUGE annual New York city fundraiser for Catholic causes (started in 1945), was ‘one for the ages’ with both presidential candidates, Hillary Clinton & Donald Trump, delivering speeches (or ‘roasts’ to be more accurate) — as is a longstanding custom on election years.

This year, i.e., 2017, the keynote speaker was House Speaker, Paul Ryan, a practicing Catholic from Wisconsin, his father of Irish descent. Ryan, as was to be expected, did make some jokes at the expense of Trump. Whether he cleared them with Trump ahead of the dinner has yet to be established. We will have to see if Trump reacts.

But, here is the whole story — so to speak, video and transcript.

Last year as you must remember it was the memorable ‘Oxford University Women’s Rugby Team’ Nude Calendar.

Deanna is still using hers.

This year it is the competing British University — Cambridge.

And it is Unisex and there appears to be more men. I ALREADY ordered a copy for Deanna. See below.

Blues“: no, NOT the music.

And yes, the British media has already made all the jokes about “blue (orbs)“! Crude.

merch_cap_largeBlues” in this context is University ‘colors’ (or what they refer to as ‘Letters’ in the U.S.). It means that the person has represented Cambridge at one of the recognized sports. The term goes back to the “Blue Cap” one got when one was selected to play cricket for the elite Cambridge University cricket first XI.

Bernie Sanders Cashing In (Already) — ‘Capitol Center for the Arts’, Concord, N.H.!

Click to access the official ‘Capitol Center for the Arts’ Website to BUY tickets.


I appreciate that it is the American thing to do.

But didn’t Bernie rail against this when it came to Hillary. That she cashed in on her fame and made millions in speaking fees.

Confused by the HUGE “Donate” button. So buy tickets, buy the book and DONATE too?

What for?

Who or what am I donating to?

Bernie Sanders’ Private Wealth Fund?

I looked. Couldn’t find mention of ‘giving to charity‘.

If I recall he gave 4% of their income to charity last year.

Just thinking.

This is something WE should try and help out.

I just happen to come across it, Tuesday, online. I need to look into it more.

I know there are organizations that send unused spectacles from developed countries to developing countries. I will have to start making some inquiries.

That the government, now that the War is over, cannot help out is somewhat disappointing.

But, I just wanted to bring it to your attention.

IF unlike I, you do not follow U.K. news you might have missed this. Ameteur choir of British National Health Service (NHS) employees wins the 2015 Christmas #1 spot with “Bridge Over You”. All proceeds to CHARITY. Even Bieber pulled for them.

Great story. Very heartwarming. Very British. Shows everybody in a GREAT Light. A lovely way to wrap-up Boxing Day.

It is from Canada and it is for Charity — ‘Colon Cancer Canada‘ to be specific. I guess butts are INDEED appropriate for a Colon-related promotion. Right? Agreed? Plus it is Canadian and as we all know ‘non sequitur‘ probably is the best way to think about them. I actually think it is the bitter cold.

Anywho. It is clever, it is funny and it is Merry and it is CLAIMED that it isn’t too sexist because there are at least TWO (2) thong clad male butts involved. Yikes. Canadians! But to be on the safe side they have included a well tanned female butt.

My feelings. I can’t say that I find it unacceptable or unsavory. I am known to be a PINCHER & PATTER of female butts. So IF you are a female and your butt has not been patted or pinched by me I feel bad for you. You have not lived! What can I say. And I am not Canadian.

SMILE. Laugh. It is the Season to be Merry.
