Wakulla Weekend of #MLK & Community - I Have A Dream Celebration- Inciting Insight



HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!

January 16, the great MLK Jr. was celebrated and remembered across our nation. Martin Luther King Jr was celebrated in BB's home town Crawfordville, Wakulla County too, but here we believe in doing it with style, relevance, and heart.  No son tan over the top or loud as Babushka's Miami, but the passion is just as strong. One day is not enough, so the celebraciones started Friday con musica and culminated in community reminiscing, union, and hope for the futuro.

The schedule, the place, the sponsors, one of the many questions asked.


The theme this year was "Inciting Insight" and the speakers eloquently shared their stories.
We are all called to be difference makers. ~Eddie Metcalf  Educator
It's community- it's on us.~Simeon Nelson   Educator on Wakulla history and on values
There isn't much that separates us if we don't allow it to.~Chuck Hobbs Lawyer

The sharing of  Andrea Carter and her senior year of highschool, when desgregation became a reality, was a sudden realization of truth.  It wasn't a story just to be read in history books, it happened, to real people;  it made a difference, they made a difference. Things weren't perfect by any means, but a start had been made. Now it was up to nosotros to continue the charla and the change.

Ahora, if you thought it was all seriousness, JU SO FONII!!! Would Babushka permitir eso?  Habia comida, comic moments, y raffles.

Herb Donaldson playwright Babushka Wakulla County Florida
BB with Community Center & Palaver Tree Theater Director Herb Donaldson

Prizes won by Babushka, looking forward to reading and sharing with The Grands.


When BB says Wakulla has style she means it has an essence, and here the essence is our community, our history.  Generations of families have been born and raised here and we're proud of that. There is a feeling of community which one can sense and see.  It's the bond that makes it home.


Wakulla County Florida MLK Celebration

A symbolic gesture for the sweetness that is Wakulla and the promise del mundo 
que Dr.Martin Luther King Jr. envisioned for all.


Hoping it was a day of paz, pensamientos, and 
"Inciting Insights" for you too Beautifuls.



Babushka Besos a todos.  Cuidensen.

Mi #MonsterTrucks Monstros #promo



HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!

Gracias to Allied Contigo, my son's 3 boys got to see #MonsterTrucks.  The littlest one- HappyBaby enjoyed being with his hermanos.   Rinquincaya & PicaPica were looking forward to the show, they loved the premise.  

"Synopsis: Looking for any way to get away from the life and town he was born into, Tripp (Lucas Till), a high school senior, builds a Monster Truck from bits and pieces of scrapped cars.  After an accident at a nearby oil-drilling site displaces a strange and subterranean creature with a taste and a talent for speed, Tripp may have just found the key to getting out of town and a most unlikely friend. "


Sounds like fun verdad? Mira el cast-
"Cast: Lucas Till, Jane Levy, Barry Pepper, Thomas Lennon, Rob Lowe, Danny Glover, Amy Ryan, Holt McCallany, Frank Whaley"

A big lineup cast for a big truck!

"Melding cutting edge visual effects and state-of-the-art CGI, Monster Trucks is an action filled adventure for the whole family that will keep you on the edge of your seat and ultimately touch your heart."

But is it really good for the whole family? No muy movido? Que scary is the Monster?   Bueno, the review will be made by mi hija +Cristyl's corazon , pero BB would say these caritas say it all. 


#MonsterTrucks sale en teatros mañana- a great pelicula for a family finde.

2017 Auld Lang Syne- Feliz New Year!!

This post will also be in N.Florida's Premier Bilingual Newspaper Conexion. BB has a monthly column.


HolaHolaHola Beautifuls, and FELIZ NEW YEAR!!!  

They say that musica is the universal language, and Babushka definitivamente agrees with that. So, time to share the history of one of the most beloved and shared songs of all time- Auld Lang Syne. For the full rendition go to Scotland.org for a lovely share.

"In 1788 Robert Burns sent the poem ‘Auld Lang Syne’ to the Scots Musical Museum, indicating that it was an ancient song but that he’d been the first to record it on paper. The phrase ‘auld lang syne’ roughly translates as ‘for old times’ sake’, and the song is all about preserving old friendships and looking back over the events of the year.

It is sung all over the world, evoking a sense of belonging and fellowship, tinged with nostalgia.

It has long been a much-loved Scottish tradition to sing the song just before midnight. Everyone stands in a circle holding hands, then at the beginning of the final verse (‘And there’s a hand my trusty friend…’) they cross their arms across their bodies so that their left hand is holding the hand of the person on their right, and their right hand holds that of the person on their left. When the song ends, everyone rushes to the middle, still holding hands, and probably giggling.


Auld Lang Syne:
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And never brought to mind?
Should auld acquaintance be forgot,
And auld lang syne.
Chorus:
For auld lang syne, my jo,
For auld lang syne,
We'll tak a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne,
And surely ye'll be your pint-stowp!
And surely I'll be mine!
And we'll tak a cup o' kindness yet,
For auld lang syne.
Chorus”

Ok, now who else is going to print out the words to get it right?  Quee??  JU SO FONII!!! Por supuesto BB will have them right next to her.
The rest gets very “Scotsy”, which BB adores, so if you’d like to read more click on the link and sing with your drink. For our part, Sweetie and Babushka cantamos the cancion and lift our drinks to all our friends, familia, and of course those that are la combinacion of the two.  To you Beautifuls-


Auld Lang Syne Happy New Year 2017 Babushka & Sweetie
2 Oldies saying Adios to the old year.


Babushka Besos a Todos. Cuidensen.

Crawfordville Cares- Operation Santa 2016



HolaHolaHola Beautifuls!!


They say Charity begins at home, and if there’s a town that embodies that, it’s Babushka’s home town of Crawfordville .  It’s wonderful living in a place where people come together to help others, usually total strangers. The sense of community is strong here and BB hopes to share some of the amor, starting with the unbelievable Operation Santa.

“Operation Santa is a community effort sponsored by the Wakulla County Coalition for Youth (WCCY) who with its partners build support for the youth, individuals and families in Wakulla County. In the past six years, Operation Santa has helped thousands in need of a hands-up to experience the joy of the Christmas Season. 2016 is the seventh year of Operation Santa of Wakulla helping Wakulla residents in need of a hand-up. There is no qualifying; we expect only those that truly need help, to experience a joyful Christmas, will apply.

This effort could not be done without the help of volunteers, businesses, the adoption of families, donations of new and like-new items and cash donations.” 

BB not donate? JU SO FONII!!! Babushka likes to give Thanks that The Grands and The Trio have always received gifts during the holidays and that we have always been blessed with shelter and comida, so for every child/grandchild we give at least the same amount back. That was 9 regalitos for Operation Santa, and this year we went straight to Santa’s Workshop.
Operation Santa Wakulla Florida charity
At 6'4" Sweetie is enjoying being Santa's biggest elf. 

Este año  there were 181 familias that signed up for holiday assistance. 81 of them were “adopted” by individuals, leaving 100 for Operation Santa to provide for. And that they definitely did. With help from the community, with toy drops around town, online monetary donations, 100 families will be having a better holiday. Pero it’s not only the families receiving the presents that are having a better holiday. Did you notice the volunteers (they call themselves elves) arriba? They came in different shifts, were from all demographics and ages, and the spirit of giving filled them all. Gracias to the “elves” for being part of Babushka’s home town. They fill the air with love and goodwill, raising the vibes all around, making Crawfordville a place that cares.

Hopefully BB will highlight other such giving groups and individuals, at least one per month.  Try to do the same Beautifuls.  If we all are on the lookout for givers, we will receive so much. To know there are those who care for our community helps us see the beauty there, and that in turn will spark more care and love from us. Imagínate if we all raised the vibes, how vibrant we’d all become.

Who will you highlight in your home town ?

Babushka Besos a todos.  Cuidensen.
P.S. If you'd like to know more about Operation Santa Wakulla,
to donate or maybe even start one in your hometown,
