To start the day …. “DWTS Season 22 …. Nyle & Peta: WINNERS”!!


~~May 25, 2016~~ 


It’s finally over.

The suspense has ended!

All along I’d been rooting for Nyle and Peta.

I was concerned that my wishes could jix their chances.

I watched the whole season.

It was a pleasure.

I saw this incredible young man grow and blossom into the great performer that he proved himself to be.

The competition was fierce, meaning that all the finalist had incredible talent too.

I couldn’t start this day without “reporting” on the final results.

Maybe most already know.

If you didn’t here it is.

I’m ready for the next Season in September.



Dancing With the Stars Finale

DiMarco and Peta Murgatroyd were awarded the Mirrorball trophy.

(Second place went to Paige VanZant and Mark Ballas, with Ginger Zee and Val Chmerkovskiy nabbing third.)

DiMarco — who, coincidentally, also won the 22nd cycle of America’s Next Top Model — was a favorite from the beginning, as he overcame his deafness (including an inability to feel musical vibrations) to produce some of the season’s most memorable routines.

Of course, before Nyle and Peta could overtake Bindi Irwin and Derek Hough as the reigning Dancing champs, the ABC series hosted a two-hour celebration of this season’s standout performances and memorable contestants.

The three finalists also performed their 24-hour fusion dances — a mash-up of two dance styles — which earned them one last score from the judges, denoted below:

Ginger Zee and pro Val Chmerkovskiy — Foxtrot/Argentine Tango — 27/30

Nyle DiMarco and pro Peta Murgatroyd — Tango/Cha-Cha — 30/30

Paige VanZant and pro Mark Ballas — Jive/Salsa — 30/30


And just like that, Season 22 came to a close, with Nyle and Peta swept up in a massive celebration alongside their castmates.

“I owe it all to him,” Murgatroyd said of her partner. “He’s just incredible.”

<I>Dancing With the Stars</I> Finale Recap: Which Couple Won Season 22?



Nyle DiMarco (born May 8, 1989 in Queens, New York) is an American actor and model. In 2015 he was the first and only deaf contestant to appear on the final season of America’s Next Top Model.
DiMarco was born in Queens, New York. He comes from a deaf family with his parents, both of his brothers and his grandparents all born deaf. His parents divorced when he was young and his mom singlehandedly raised him and his two brothers. He grew up in Frederick, Maryland and graduated from Gallaudet University with a degree in Mathematics. DiMarco lives in New York City. He considers American Sign Language (ASL) to be his native language and is also proficient in lip reading and nonverbal communication.
DiMarco had been doing freelance modeling for about a year before he was contacted by America’s Next Top Model producers. They scouted the 25-year-old via his Instagram without realizing he was deaf. He is the second male winner of the CW’s America’s Next Top Model. DiMarco is now currently signed with Wilhelmina Models in New York City. He is also working with Barxbell, the first all deaf company based in Pleasanton.
DiMarco acted in a leading role for an independent film On the Can … again under ASL Films production, a movie told in American Sign Language with English subtitles.He played the recurring role of Garrett Banducci in Switched at Birth on the Freeform network.
DiMarco doesn’t consider himself to be disabled by deafness and sees his media profile as an opportunity to bring awareness to Deaf culture. He views deafness as an advantage in modeling because he is accustomed to conveying messages without speaking.He also holds the belief that deaf roles should be played by deaf actors.

 DiMarco is an honorary spokesperson for the Language Equality and Acquisition for Deaf Kids (LEAD-K) campaign.

We ALL are ONE!! 


To start the day …. “Hug for the World”!!

~~June 23, 2014~~ 


Hugs are very important to me. My life would be colorless without them. They are shows of affection between family, friends and loved ones. They show support and convey feelings of love. They celebrate life’s events, sports victories.

hug is a near universal form of physical intimacy in which two people put their arms around the neck, back, or waist of one another and hold each other closely. If more than two persons are involved, this is informally referred to as a group hug.



A hug, sometimes in association with a kiss, is a form of nonverbal communication. Depending on culture, context and relationship, a hug can indicate familiarity, loveaffectionfriendship or sympathy. A hug can indicate support, comfort, and consolation, particularly where words are insufficient. A hug usually demonstrates affection and emotional warmth, sometimes arising from joy or happiness at meeting someone or seeing someone long-absent. A hug can range from a brief one-second squeeze, with the arms not fully around the partner, to an extended holding.BorderCal

Hugging has been proven to have health benefits. One study has shown that hugs increase levels of oxytocin and reduce blood pressure.BorderCal

An unexpected hug can be regarded as an invasion of a person’s personal space, but if it is reciprocated it is an indication that it is welcome. Also, a person, especially a child, may caress and hug a doll or stuffed animal. Young children will also hug their parents when they feel threatened by an unfamiliar person, although this may be regarded as clinging onto rather than hugging because it demonstrates a need for protection rather than affection.

~~Ten Reasons Why We Need at Least 8 Hugs a Day~~

The nurturing touch of a hug builds trust and a sense of safety. This helps with open and honest communication.Hugs can instantly boost oxytocin levels, which heal feelings of loneliness, isolation, and anger.Holding a hug for an extended time lifts one’s serotonin levels, elevating mood and creating happiness.
Hugs strengthen the immune system. The gentle pressure on the sternum and the emotional charge this creates activates the Solar Plexus Chakra. This stimulates the thymus gland, which regulates and balances the body’s production of white blood cells, which keep you healthy and disease free.
Hugging boosts self-esteem. From the time we’re born our family’s touch shows us that we’re loved and special. The associations of self-worth and tactile sensations from our early years are still imbedded in our nervous system as adults. The cuddles we received from our Mom and Dad while growing up remain imprinted at a cellular level, and hugs remind us at a somatic level of that. Hugs, therefore, connect us to our ability to self love.
Hugging relaxes muscles. Hugs release tension in the body. Hugs can take away pain; they soothe aches by increasing circulation into the soft tissues.
Hugs balance out the nervous system. The galvanic skin response of someone receiving and giving a hug shows a change in skin conductance.The effect in moisture and electricity in the skin suggests a more balanced state in the nervous system – parasympathetic.
Hugs teach us how to give and receive. There is equal value in receiving and being receptive to warmth, as to giving and sharing. Hugs educate us how love flows both ways.
Hugs are so much like meditation and laughter. They teach us to let go and be present in the moment. They encourage us to flow with the energy of life. Hugs get you out of your circular thinking patterns and connect you with your heart and your feelings and your breath.
The energy exchange between the people hugging is an investment in the relationship. It encourages empathy and understanding. And, it’s synergistic, which means the whole is more than the sum of its parts: 1 1 = 3 or more! This synergy is more likely to result in win-win outcomes.
