HOW DID I MISS THIS ONE?

Allison Holker and Twitch Boss – Dancing with the Stars 16 – Video

Allison Holker and Twitch Boss performed on Dancing with the Stars 16 Week 7 Results Show with Lindsey Stirling on violin.

Allison and tWitch are from So You Think You Can Dance.

 They’re such a happy couple.

Looking through YouTube … what to post for the last entry, I found this video. I’ve know about Allison from DWTS, about tWitch from the Ellen Degeneres Show, about Lindsey from YouTube.

I follow all of them.

I consider all to be accomplished performers in their respective art form.

I didn’t know about this performance on DWTS.

It was uploaded in 2013.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

THE RED CUP CONTROVERSY

Give me a Break

One of my Facebook friends lives in Germany.

Yesterday she noticed a post which I had shared related to this topic.

She was asking me what it meant.

At the same moment, she was watching the news.

She posted back to me the picture of her TV with these news and another picture showing the the raging, “former pastor” idiot who started all of this by posting his ranting video on his FB page.

I asked her how she and her fellow country men saw Americans.

She say they think Americans are funny and hilarious, among other things.

Give me a brake is perfect.

To start the day …. “Friday the 13th …. Greetings from Kitty, my black cat”!!


F13

~~November 13, 2015~~ 

TODAY IS FRIDAY THE 13TH

My black kitty was a rescue from the street.

From the beginning, she was a handful.

At the beginning. we couldn’t decide on her name.

Options included Panther, Midnight, Blackie.

My favorite was “Double Trouble” which remains her official name.

However, the grand-kids decided on “Kitty” (easier for them) and she answers to that.

We firmly believe that she thinks she’s a dog.

Her behavior, even thought basically cat-like has definite signs of canine.

Several times, we’ve thought about giving her away, finding her a new home, taking her to the pound.

Yet, with the help of friends, we have come to terms with her and she has become part of the family and she will remain as such.

Have a good Friday, the 13th …. from Kitty.

Though Bindi bared her fangs throughout, it was more likely her on-point routine that earned her and Hough their perfect score from the judges’ panel rather than her ability to channel her evil side.

Bindi Irwin & Derek’s “ArgentineTango”

Week 7  DWTS Season 21

(Halloween Night)

Published on Oct 27, 2015

Bindi Irwin & Derek Hough – ‘Vampire Queen’ Argentine Tango

It’s hard to overstate just how dedicated and positive Bindi is.

Derek’s words here give us a hint:

“Since it’s Halloween, I’ll leave you with a story that is simultaneously gross and indicative of how awesome Bindi is. Yesterday, she had her socks off and my jaw dropped to the floor when I saw her feet.

Three of her toenails have fallen off, she had huge blisters all over and bruises on her knees.

It was not pretty!

She was like, “Oh, yeah, they fell off yesterday. That one was bleeding last night.” I was like, “Bindi, you gotta tell me.” And she was like, “Oh, it’s nothing.” I said, “No, I gotta know when you’re hurting.” She was like, “No, really, I’m fine. It’s not a big deal.”

I’ve had partners who needed to take a 20-minute break if it’s one little blister.

Bindi is a badass.”

Thoughts for today, #284 .… “My Awesome Bubble … “!!


Bubble

~~November 12, 2015~~ 

MY AWESOME BUBBLE

Bubbles
Flimsy treasures of instant delight
tickling your senses in fanciful flight.
Transparent bubbles so airy and bright
reflecting glitter of sparkling light.

Glassy orbs that make children giggle
as they wiggle, wobble, and jiggle.
Sunlit shells encapsulate the air
creating crystalline balls beyond compare.

Lightly popping with a ticklish splat
while spraying a mist as if sunlight spat.
Floating flotilla of magic spheres
playfully summoning laughter’s tears.

VIENNESE WALTZ

I love this show.

It’s so much more now because of Bindi.

I think she is a refreshing ray of sunlight, a genuine child who has grow before our eyes.

She has shown stamina, talent and so much more.

I can’t help but smile when I see her perform.

As I watch this dance, I get goosebumps and feel a tight knot in my throat and feel tears of emotion start to flow.

I wish her the best now that the semifinals are upon us.

Bindi Irwin waltzes into perfection on Dancing With The Stars again

Bernard Zuel
Senior music writer

Can you improve on perfection?

It seems you can if you’re Bindi Irwin and the American TV network hosting Dancing With the Stars.

Already a favorite of viewers and judges, Irwin and her dance partner, Derek Hough, performed a traditional Viennese waltz to the song “Roses And Violets” on this week’s episode. Well, ok, “traditional” if blindfolds had been de rigueur on dance floors along the Danube 200 years ago, but this is not the time to quibble.

In any case, Irwin and Hough, didn’t just impress, they earned perfect tens from each of the judges who had been left gibbering in their wake.

The performance also secured her a place in next week’s semi-finals.

As one judge put it, “every week you’re so flawless” and another gushed that watching it had been like “watching a sunrise”. Luckily though the declaration from the third judge that the dance “spoke for itself”, didn’t quite hold, much to the relief of the show producers who still had some time to fill.

Those who have been keeping a Bindi eye on the competition so far, a perfect score is both rare, for others, and becoming commonplace for the daughter of the late Steve Irwin, who has received the honor three times now.

Bindi and Derek have won the top score in the competition seven out of the past nine weeks.

It isn’t that long ago that this pair earned perfect scores from the three regular judges and guest adjudicator Olivia Newton John, for a dance set to, and modeled on, “The Time Of My Life” from the film Dirty Dancing.

GoldSwirlBWCrickeyGoldSwirl

Breathless and beaming after her dance, and before the scores were announced, Irwin showed her shaking hands and said “this dance has meant so much and it’s so beautiful … that I can’t stop shaking when I’m doing it”.

Irwin thanked Hough via Instagram over the weekend.

“Even when I’m super tired he gives me strength and encourages me to keep trying my best and always believe. You’re the greatest big brother I could ever ask for,” she wrote.

Whisky, frisky,
Hippity hop;
Up he goes
To the tree top!

Whirly, twirly,
Round and round,
Down he scampers
To the ground.

Furly, curly
What a tail!
Tall as a feather
Broad as a sail!

Where’s his supper?
In the shell,
Snappity, crackity,
Out it fell.

Alexa PeñaVega reveals struggle with bulimia on ‘DWTS,’ sent home despite perfect night

Lucia I. Suarez Sang

Fox News Latino

It was an emotional and perfect night for actress Alexa PeñaVega on “Dancing With the Stars” on Monday, November 9, 2015.

The “Spy Kids” actress danced her way into the hearts of the judges with two perfect scores for the night, but it was not enough to bring her back for next week.

The 27-year-old opened the night with an emotional contemporary dance after revealing that she struggled with an eating disorder for many years.

“I remember shooting this movie, and the producers kept telling me, ‘You’re just too fat,’ and as child you don’t know how to handle that,” she told pro partner Mark Ballas during a pre-taped rehearsal.

“So from that moment, for the next six years of my life, I had an eating disorder.”

GoldSwirl

PeñaVega revealed she had bulimia

“I struggled with bulimia for so long, and, even though I got through it, I feel think like a lot of my insecurities still with my body is from that,” she added.

Ballas used her experience as inspiration for the choreography, and PeñaVega was more than willing to take it on. She said she wants to use her story to help others struggling with their own demons.

“This was a part of my life that I was also so afraid of people finding out, but I knew that at some point I was going to talk about because I knew I wanted to help people,” PeñaVega said.

“It’s intense, but I think strangely beautiful.”

HUG

Sometimes I get the urge to hug someone,
Really tight,
Not in a romantic way,
Just to feel someone caring for me as I do them,
Their arms like iron bars,
But as I said,
Not in a romantic way,
A way to prove that hugs are awesome,
And completely acceptable to hug for no reason,
Even if it’s longer than expected,
Not in a romantic way,
Because I love you, friend,
More than the term friend warrants.
You’re my sister.

I found this page browsing through Facebook.

The accompanying video was presented as a thank you and recognition for continued visits and views to their page.

I can not begin to say how proud this makes me!

I feel nostalgic for my country.

I haven’t been back for a few years.

I go back home through the awesome videos this page.

I even see places that I have never been to or even knew that existed in my own country.

This is an amazing job that the ones presenting and administering this page ad their own website are doing.

It means a lot to those of us who are away from home.

My country is so beautiful.

It’s the “Pearl of the Caribbean” (“Perla Del Caribe”).

It doesn’t matter the hardships that it’s going through now. The spirit of the people is still there.

Their kindness, their knowledge, their love .. they are all there.

I’m so proud to be a Puerto Rican!!

I invite you to take a trip with me.

Puerto Rico, officially the Commonwealth of Puerto Rico (Spanish: Estado Libre Asociado de Puerto Rico, literally the “Free Associated State of Puerto Rico”), is a United States territory located in the northeastern Caribbean.

Puerto Rico is an archipelago that includes the main island of Puerto Rico and a number of smaller islands. The capital and largest city isSan Juan. The territory does not observe daylight saving time, and its official languages are Spanish, which is predominant, and English. The island’s population is approximately 3.6 million.

Puerto Rico’s rich history, tropical climate, diverse natural scenery and renowned traditional cuisine make it a popular destination for visitors from around the world. Its location in the Caribbean, combined with centuries of colonization and subsequent migration, has made Puerto Rican culture a distinct melting pot of Amerindian, Spanish, African and North American influences.
