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.

Bindi Irwin and pro partner Derek Hough take on Halloween on Dancing With The Stars on Monday night (October 26, 2015) in Hollywood.

Team Crikey performed an Argentine Tango, which earned them a total of 30 points from the judges, topping the leaderboard!

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.

Watch Bindi become an adorable vampire queen in the accompanying video.

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.”

CHILDHOOD CONNECTIONS

We all have our childhood memories …

the favorite bear, the softest furry friend, our neighborhood, our childhood friends, the house were we lived in, a tree house in out back yard.

Those memories are forever etched in our minds.

We also remember the times when we may have had the need to leave those behind.

For a child, this can be difficult and maybe even devastating.

But … would you think it could also be the same for the “object/memory” we are leaving behind?

Take a look!!

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.

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.

THE RED CUP THAT WON’T GO AWAY

According to Starbucks, the holiday cup began in 1997 with a “jazz-themed design in jewel tones of deeper reds, greens and blues.” Each year since then, the coffee giant’s holiday cups return, and have become a corporate tradition in the process.

The cups make the transition from plain white to holiday-themed in November; this year they changed over on November 3.

Ellen’s Hilarious Response to the Red Cup Controversy

Over the weekend, Starbucks introduced new plain red “holiday” cups, which prompted some serious backlash from people who called the move part of the “War on Christmas” in America, and an overall assault on Christianity. It raised such a controversy that even presidential candidate Donald Trump addressed it.

Comedian Ellen Degeneres also had something to say about the holiday cups during the airing of “Ellen,” on Tuesday, November 10, 2-15.

“The old cups had snowflakes and santa’s sleigh and elves. You know, all the things you find in the Bible,” Ellen joked.

RedLineBElSipRedLineB

PROOF THAT THERE’S NO “WAR ON CHRISTMAS”

Starbucks released a statement addressing the controversy, saying in part that diversity and inclusion are important to the coffee company:

“Creating a culture of belonging, inclusion and diversity is one of the core values of Starbucks, and each year during the holidays the company aims to bring customers an experience that inspires the spirit of the season,” the statement from Starbucks continued.

“Starbucks will continue to embrace and welcome customers from all backgrounds and religions in our stores around the world.”

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.”

GOOGLE DOODLE HONOR HEDY LAMARR

Google honors Hedy Lamarr, inventor of technology behind Wi-Fi and Bluetooth

Renaissance woman Hedy Lamarr could not be accused of living a dull life. Even before fleeing her loveless marriage to a Nazi arms dealer to become a Hollywood star, Lamarr had captured international attention as the first female actor to simulate an orgasm in a non-pornographic film.

But none of this, presumably, is why Google has chosen to honor the Austrian-American with a Doodle on what would be her 101st birthday.

“Any girl can be glamorous, all you have to do is stand still and look stupid.”

Hedy Lamarr

BLine

She is remembered for her beauty on the silver screen, but the Hollywood actor spent her nights inventing a weapons communication system that was a precursor to wireless technologies including Bluetooth and Wi-Fi.

Born Hedwig Eva Maria Kiesler in 1914 in Vienna, Lamarr began acting as a teenager. At the age of 18, she starred in the scandalous 1930’s Czech film Ecstasy, in which she goes skinny dipping then, still completely nude, chases a runaway horse. Later on, she simulates an orgasm – the first female actor to do this in a theatrically-released film.

Married at 19 to a Nazi arms merchant – one of the richest men in Austria – Lamarr was virtually a prisoner in her own home, according to Trina Robbins, author of Hedy Lamarr and a Secret Communication System. It was during this time that Lamarr was first exposed to weapons technology – at numerous dinner parties where she listened to her husband and his guests discuss the technical aspects of weapons design.

She eventually fled the marriage and went to Hollywood, landing a seven-year, $3000-a-week contract with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer. An immediate sensation, the hugely popular actor starred in films including Tortilla Flat, Lady of the Tropics, Boom Town, and Samson and Delilah.
