Contrary to what some people think, grace and poise are more than just what to wear, and how you speak; it’s how to live your life.

So if someone has ever wondered if we are living our life with love and friendship, this may clear up any doubts anyone might have.

If you grew up watching Television in America, then you may remember one of these two images. Which group are USA impostors?

The Three Stooges was an American vaudeville and comedy team active from 1922 until 1970, best remembered for their 190 short subject films by Columbia Pictures. Their hallmark styles were physical farce and slapstick.  http://www.threestooges.com/

These knuckleheads Larry, Curly, and Moe always become embroiled in trouble as their zany brand of comedy continues to offer hilarity at every turn.

Comedy should be humorous in the theatre, on film, stand-up comedy, television, radio, books, or any other entertainment medium.

The term originated in ancient Greece: in Athenian democracy, the public opinion of voters was influenced by the political satire performed by comic poets in theaters.  (LANGUAGE WARNING)

Must-see TV fighting at #Oscar night’s most harrowing incident a live broadcast has ever seen. Will Smith punched Chris Rock! 

While the show must go on, the 94th Academy Awards might have left an Oh-scar following an unscripted moment at the Dolby Theater that set the internet on fire. About halfway through the show, Will Smith took offense following a joke that Chris Rock told about his wife Jada Pinkett-Smith, so, he walked up on stage and smacked Rock during the live TV transmission.

Is there anyone you know who can show or tell you who was the very first superhero to break into the mass media world?

Latino superheroes over the years have graced this comic medium and delivered a diverse but sometimes stereotypical sampling of Hispanic characters.

Happy Fathers Day Weekend. Whether you're a father, or by marriage, or a parent who adopted. I love my kids and all my grandchildren.

However, I am a divorced dad living at a distance who at a ripe old age realizes a limited connection to my family. My adult kids are mostly married with children who know how to reach me. I always reached out to them and miss my DaD and grandfathers.

Some may decide to call it playing and trying to please the crowd, I prefer to focus on reflecting the community that we want to serve.

With its Latino cast, the arrival of In the Heights on #HBO and at local theaters was billed as a milestone for Hollywood. However, Lin-Manuel Miranda issued an apology for the film not including enough black Latino actors.
