Celebrate Hispanic Heritage with LATINO AMERICANS #latinosPBS #latinosford

This is part of a compensated campaign with Latina Mom Bloggers and Ford.  However, all opinions expressed are my own.


Celebrating my roots has always been a hard thing for me.  My parents raised my brother and I in a very Americanized home.  To this day I only know enough Spanish to get me to a bathroom.  It was never an issue growing up that my grandparents spoke Spanish to us fluently and we would answer them back in English.  The barriers where always there and that’s just the way it was.  As an adult I find myself trying to play catch-up,  learning about traditional Hispanic Cultures that I had no idea even existed.

Now that I have my own children I want the barrier to be broken.  I want them to see their heritage as an extension of who they are everyday.  Homeshooling has made this easier for us to bring our culture to the forefront.  Learning and celebrating past and present Latino’s who have molded the Culture.  From Musicians to Politicians, I want my boys to have a better understanding of who they are and what they come from.

I encourage you to join me tonight as Ford is sponsoring a series LATINO AMERICANS (9/24) tonight on PBS.

The series will document the history and experiences of Latinos, who have helped shape North America over the last 500 years. Narrated by Benjamin Bratt, LATINO AMERICANS is a story of immigration and redemption, of anguish and celebration and of the gradual construction of a new American identity that connects millions of people today.

The three-part, six-hour series airs September 24th, and October 1st from 8:00 – 10:00 p.m. (EST) and will feature interviews with Puerto Rican star of West Side Story, Rita Moreno; Mexican-American author and commentator Linda Chavez, who also became the highest ranking woman in the Reagan White House; and Cuban singer and entrepreneur Gloria Estefan.


Also follow me @athriftydiva on twitter as I will be Live Tweeting from 8-10 pm EST with the hashtag #LatinosPBS‬‬ #LatinosFord and @FordEspañol Twitter

The Ford Motor Company provided funding for this series.

  1. I just want to mention I am all new to blogs and honestly loved this web page. Probably I’m going to bookmark your site . You surely come with tremendous writings. Kudos for sharing your webpage.

  2. I have realized that over the course of building a relationship with real estate owners, you’ll be able to come to understand that, in every real estate financial transaction, a commission amount is paid. Ultimately, FSBO sellers do not “save” the commission rate. Rather, they try to win the commission through doing a agent’s work. In the process, they expend their money and also time to complete, as best they might, the tasks of an adviser. Those tasks include disclosing the home via marketing, showing the home to buyers, making a sense of buyer desperation in order to induce an offer, organizing home inspections, taking on qualification inspections with the loan provider, supervising maintenance tasks, and facilitating the closing of the deal.

  16. I have figured out some new items from your internet site about computers. Another thing I have always thought is that laptop computers have become a specific thing that each residence must have for many reasons. They supply you with convenient ways in which to organize homes, pay bills, go shopping, study, hear music and in many cases watch shows. An innovative solution to complete these tasks is with a mobile computer. These personal computers are portable ones, small, powerful and transportable.

  17. I haven’t checked in here for some time because I thought it was getting boring, but the last several posts are good quality so I guess I’ll add you back to my everyday bloglist. You deserve it my friend 🙂

  18. A few things i have observed in terms of laptop or computer memory is the fact there are specific features such as SDRAM, DDR and many others, that must go with the specifications of the mother board. If the pc’s motherboard is very current and there are no computer OS issues, changing the storage space literally will take under 1 hour. It’s one of the easiest computer upgrade treatments one can envision. Thanks for expressing your ideas.

  19. Thanks for the points you have shared here. Something else I would like to state is that computer system memory demands generally increase along with other improvements in the technological know-how. For instance, any time new generations of processors are brought to the market, there’s usually an equivalent increase in the size calls for of both the pc memory along with hard drive room. This is because software program operated by way of these cpus will inevitably boost in power to leverage the new know-how.

  20. One thing I want to say is that before buying more laptop or computer memory, have a look at the machine directly into which it will be installed. Should the machine can be running Windows XP, for instance, a memory limit is 3.25GB. Setting up above this would purely constitute some sort of waste. Make sure that one’s mother board can handle an upgrade amount, as well. Thanks for your blog post.

  21. One thing I’d like to say is always that before obtaining more pc memory, check out the machine directly into which it will be installed. If your machine is running Windows XP, for instance, the actual memory limit is 3.25GB. Setting up a lot more than this would easily constitute a waste. Make certain that one’s mother board can handle the particular upgrade amount, as well. Interesting blog post.

  22. One thing I’d like to say is the fact that before acquiring more computer memory, look into the machine directly into which it could well be installed. If the machine is definitely running Windows XP, for instance, the actual memory ceiling is 3.25GB. Using a lot more than this would purely constitute some sort of waste. Make sure one’s motherboard can handle an upgrade amount, as well. Thanks for your blog post.
