Our Head Cold Remedy and How to Kick Up Your Energy

Cold Remedy:

We quit smoking seven years ago and we have not had any kind of a head cold or plain cold since then.  When we were smoking we had a major head cold about every few months, so of course quitting smoking is a must.  But seven years is a long time and we even have medications that lower our immune system, yet we have not had a cold.  So here is our secret and we are sharing it because we wish all of you to be head cold free. Please feel free to send this to all your friends, family, strangers, aliens, and others.

The key is to keep your nasal passages clean. Breathing though your nose collects dust and germs’ so cleaning is a must.  When we feel a tiny nasal drip we kick into action.  You’re probably thinking “Nettie Pot” and we have talked to others that get great results from a Nettie Pot, but sticking the spout of a pot up our nose and squirting “stuff” up into our nasal passages is right up there with an enema, so we pass on that and go natural.

First we get a box of soft tissues like Kleenex, but any kind will do, even toilet paper.  We sit in a comfortable chair and start up our ancient desk top and go to You Tube.  Search for “Ellen Teacher Moments” and a list will come up.  “The Ellen” Show has been our favorite since her beginning and the great things she does for people, especially teachers, families needing help, and heroes in general.  So we have a list of her amazing action and from the first one we watch we start to mist up.  Tears start flowing because we can feel the joy in our heart and we especially like the surprise the people feel.  Then on the second one, the mist turns to full blown tears and the nasal passages begin to fill and the joy flows throughout our body.  Then buy the third we let go and plain cry and laugh at the surprised people.  Our nose is flowing like fire-hose squirting water on a fire.  We watch three or four more Ellen videos and our nasal passages have been cleaned from the emotions just watching her help people.   The cars, cash, supplies for schools in need, young talented folks getting help because they created funds for other people in need, people in “Pay Back” mode and feeding the homeless and or others needing the help.  All the awesome stories and Ellen ending by saying “Be kind”.  Great words that we live by.  We have clean nasal passages and have learned some way to help people.  We do take notes for later use.  So to Ellen we say “Ellen you not only helped all those people, but you also are keeping us head cold free and the tissue companies in business!”

Kick Up Your Energy:

When we go out and about we know ahead of time we are about to meet awesome people wherever we go.  Right off we know we are going to get a Lyft driver that we must talk to and learn from.  We seem to connect with each driver from the moment we enter the car.  Because we once drove for Uber we exchange stories and because we get hints from other drivers we pass on that information.  Then we usually start trading personal information and life experiences.  What’s interesting is before we go out we are usually thinking about a subject like the last time we were thinking about going on a cruise or renting an RV and touring the west.  About ten minutes before we left we heard a storey about how the major cruise lines don’t have life guards at the pools and many children have drowned and people do fall off the ship and drown, but the cruise lines never report these events because they fly a flag from a different country than the US.  They don’t even report assaults’ or robberies, so we decided we could wait on a cruise until we can afford a body guard.  Then off we went and the guy driving the car says “As soon as my wife retires we are going to buy a RV and tour the country.  I have been researching this for months.” Bingo!  RV rental!  So we get our answer and discussed the best way to look up what we need and where we wish to go.  The ride seemed like 5 minutes instead of the normal 30 minutes.  We exchanged phone numbers and will keep in touch.  Then when we get out of the car we always say Hello to other people and always say “Have a great day!”  All these connections kick up our energy and hopefully the people we talk to.  Just “Be Kind” and you will get it back ten times more.  Changing a frown to a smile on someone’s face is a great feeling for both of us.  Our goal is to show people they are not alone, we are all connected.  We would like all people to be happy and living a life they choose to live in joy and bliss.  It’s so simple, all we do is choose our life and take action to what we choose.  Send the Universe out intention (in detail) and then forget it knowing it will come to use when we are ready.  Everything is out there for us so go get it!

We have nothing else to report and we are happy to say we are on a cool path to healing so we can RV across the country next spring.  We still have plenty to do, but it’s easy with the help of our guardian angels and Spirit Guides.  They seem to aim us in the perfect direction.

God bless all of you and your families.  Get out there and kick up your energy and see how you can make a difference in the world.  Change a frown to a smile on someone and start a conversation.  They might have a few answers for you or visa versa.  Don’t judge, just do it.

Lincare – Respiratory Specialists – UPDATE on Portable Unit

lincarelogoWe just received a phone call from my sister in Sedona and she reported that the portable unit she has been waiting for a year and one half was just delivered to her house.  As soon as we heard a celebration broke out on both ends of the phone line.  We want to thank Dan for his participation in getting this feat accomplished and to all of you who stopped by to read this post.

You might think you just read the post, but by reading the post your energy was added to the energy already engaged in pursuing a resolution.

To Lincare we say, finally thank you and if you had any business sense you would promote Dan (District Manager) to VP at least.

My sister is beyond blissful.  This portable unit gives her freedom to travel around the world or just on short trips.  We wish you all out there in cyberland could hear her voice and the happiness of being free from the heavy unit she has been coping with.

We have nothing else to report at this time except to say >>> Namaste

If you have a few minutes to watch a U tube video about “Love is the New Religion” by Brian Piergrossi you might find this to be the new Spiritual Revolution:

The Voice 2013 — Results

VioceSo Mathew was sent home this week and he has not had a good performance in the last few weeks.  So America was right on. And James W. our favorite was saved by the instant save.

Now we have found a way around the west coast being eliminated from the “instant save” and it just so happens that James was saved, possibly because our votes counted.  This is what we did.  The “instant save” opens for votes about 10 minutes before the show ends at 9:00 PM EST.  So at 8:45 PM EST (5:45 PST) we started Tweeting our saves for James and “bingo” James was saved this week.  We did our “instant save” without knowing James was in the bottom, kind of a “just in case” James winds up in the bottom two.  (It worked).

We were surprised to see Cole move on.  It’s probably because Blake’s fans are voting the last one standing on Blake’s Team.  Even though James is our favorite, right now it looks like Jacquie is the front runner.  The girl can sing up a storm.

Today on Ellen D.’s show Adam Levine was a guest and she asked him about why the west coast is not included in the “instant save”.  Adam answered with “the voting is really crazy.” and  never did answer the question.  The only answer is The Voice executives don’t give a hoot about the west coast voting.  Well, to them we say, if this keeps up we will stop watching next year and hey you guys, I am holding up my hand and giving you a west coast wave.  You know what kind of wave, it’s like when your diving down the road and someone cuts in front of you without warning.

Next Monday after The Voice episode ends another show we like “The Sing-Off ” starts it’s new season.  In fact, we have been following this show from the day it started.   Stay tuned and watch if you want to see folks singing without being accompanied by a band.  (a cappella competition ).

Other than having survived the Black Friday week-end frenzy of shopping spree, which will be described in our next post, we have nothing to add at this time.

Peace!

The Voice 2013 — This weeks results

VioceMonday was another live concert and Will doing an Etta James song just plain blew us away.  That was the 2nd “WOW” and then Jacquie the amazing 16 year old was a “WOW! WOW!”.  It always amazes us when someone that young can sing so great and with all that soul.  We agree with Cee-Lo when he asked her “Did you swallow an old lady?”. How else could sh sing with such feeling.  And then there is James W., or as we call him “The Singing Stockbroker” and still our favorite.  He kicked off the show with an amazing Queen song and that was our 1st “WOW!”.  At this point it looks like anyone can win, but the above mentioned our our top 3.

On another note are you out there in cyberland ready for the deluge of Christmas commercials coming your way.  The first we saw was the day after Halloween, Disneyland ran one and then 1 day later we saw a Walmart one.  Nothing like starting early.

Now we have to say that Monday was a highlight day because Lady Gaga was on the Ellen D. show and we are HUGE fans of Lady Gaga.  In fact as we type this post the song “Poker Face” is running through our mind.  The shocker was that we had never seen Lady Gaga without out all that elaborate makeup and outrageous attire.  She showed up on Ellen just like anyone else except for the elf-like shoes.  And you know what?  She is very attractive without all the face “paste”.  We thought the interview was also very insightful and we really enjoyed it.

Yes folks the lady in Pink / Red is Lady Gaga.

We have nothing else to report at this time except to wish all of you out there in cyberland a very Happy Thanksgiving and if your outside the USA, have a Happy and Peaceful Day!

So You Think You Can Dance Season 8 – Top 8 Performance

Tonight’s judges were Nigel, Mary, Sonya and guest judges Lady Gaga and Rob Marshall.  (Yes folks, Lady Gaga was in the house tonight!)

The contestants did two routines tonight one with an “All Star” as a partner and the other a routine with one of the other contestants as a partner.  The “All Star” dancers are past competitors from previous seasons of SYTYCD.

Tonight’s highlights in order of performance partnered with All Star (AS = All Star):

1] Sasha and AS Pasha – Style: Two Step                Song “Putti’n on the Ritz”
The dreaded Two Step is usually a ho-hum style but tonight this pair was amazing.  Sasha did an excellent job with the style and “nailed” this routine in all aspects.

2] Caitlynn and AS Ivan – Style: Lyrical Hip-Hop        Song “Let Me Love You”
The routine itself was not to our liking because it did not challenge Caitlynn, but she did a good job with what she was given, especially because she was out of her speciality.

3] Jordan and AS Ade – Style: Jazz                           Song “”Nutbush City Limits”
This was the best Jazz Style routine we have seen in many weeks.  Jordan absolutely “nailed” the technique, power, and danced fearless.

4] Melanie and AS Neal – Style: Contemporary          Song “Total Eclipse of the Heart”
Week after week Melanie delivers outstanding performances and this was another outstanding one.  It was simply amazing and beautifully danced.  Melanie is another fearless competitor that knows how to “bring it”.

5] Ricky and AS Anya – Style: Jive                             Song “River Deep – Mountain High”
The main theme of this routine required fast paced steps and Ricky did a pretty good job with it.  He did have one lift that was messy, but overall it was a good job.

6] Jess and AS Lauren Gottleb – Style: Hip-Hop        Song “Take a bow”
Last week Jess was great and this week he topped it.  Jess was way out of his specialty and showed he has the “swag” required for this style.

7] Tadd and AS Lauren F. – Style: ?                          Song “Another One Bites the Dust”
We think this was Tadd’s best performance of this season.  Every week Tadd whos specialty is “B-Boy” takes on and conquers the style of the week.  He always surprises us with his excellent dance technique and performance.
Note: The “?” above for style is because Cat Deeley once again neglected to announce the style prior to the routine.

8] Marko and AS Allison – Style: Contemporary         Song “I Know Its Over”
“Wow!” What a great performance and beautifully danced by Marko and Allison.  This performance brought tears to Lady Gaga’s eyes and many others.  This was one of those special dance moments and we are honored to have seen it happen.  Sweet!

Tonight’s highlights in order of performance partnered with other contestant:

1] Caitlynn and Tadd – Style: Fox Trot                       Song “Top Hat, White Tie, and Tails”
Another boring style made entertaining by this pair.  Both dancers sparkled.

2] Ricky and Marko – Style: (Soft) Hip-Hop                Song “Bad Boy for Life”
Both dancers showed “swagger” and “nailed” this routine.

3] Jordan and Jess – Style: Rumba                           Song “Set Fire to the Rain”
The chemistry seemed to be missing but both dancers did a good job with this style.

4] Sasha and Melanie – Style: Contemporary            Song “Game On”
This performance received a standing ovation from all the judges and audience, which was rightly so.  This was a double “Wow!” performance.  It had power, great technique, strength, and energy.  A perfectly danced routine created by the one and only Sonya.

Our top three best routines tonight

***** Melanie / Neal * Marko / Allison * Sasha / Melanie *****

Tomorrow night will be the results from tonight and two dancers will be going home.

We have nothing else to report except to comment on Lady Gaga’s judging ability and we think she was one of the best ever guest judges.  Her comments were exactly “spot” on.  What we liked best was when a dancer did not have the exact technique as judged by Nigel and Mary, which point out when a dancer does not do the moves according to the strict “ballroom” rules, she pointed out that the dancer was expressing himself / herself and they were making the style current.  We totally agree with that assessment and applaud her for her comments on this subject.  Have you ever noticed that if you want to see “ballroom” dancing its usually only on public television?  That’s because it not current and requires stringent rules in the techniques based on “stone age” thinking.  Maybe, just maybe, the “ballroom” community should do a little rethinking and update the rules to allow the dancers a smidgen of creativity.  That might just bring Ballroom to the mainstream on major television outlets.

By the way Lady Gaga will not be on the judging panel tomorrow night but she will be performing.  Bravo!

See all of you out there in cyberland tomorrow for the results and we hope you voted for your favorite dancer.
