Gluten Free and Sugar Free starts today

Here is what led up to our decision and it’s mainly because two people in my life suggested too go with this.  We do feel good, but there are nagging aches and pains that keep coming and going.  My sleep is not so good and we are scheduled to take the sleep analysis test in February, and we will, but we are still going to do this.  My niece listed about 10 things that made her life batter and our other friend said it changed her life.

Normally we would not announce a major life change, but we will be posting our progress along the way and we will include any “hiccups”.  Hey humans are not perfect so straying is part of the journey.  We are going to apply the same procedure that we used to quit smoking.  Any urge or decision on a type of food will be handled with a mindfulness meditation, just like handling smoking urges.  (We have been smoke free for 6 years this month).

The sugar free is a huge change for us.  Good grief!  We love our junk foods like Gold Fish, Sugar Frosted Flakes, Honey Nut Cheerios, or any cereal that is “sugar saturated”.  Then the candies out there like Butterfingers, Snickers, and just about any candy on the market.  Then the hidden foods with sugar will be a challenge and this is something we want to report.  If we find a food that says “Gluten Free” and is not, we will report it to you.  So to the companies that say they are Gluten Fee, we are telling you now that we will find you and expose your “fake” claims.  Sure it sells food, but not with exaggerated claims or in English, your lies.   If you are invested in the market on junk food stock we suggest you sell soon.  Please take your profits and donate to a nonprofit organization of your choosing.  If you stay in, then it’s your own risk and we can not be held accountable.

So we started by dumping all our stash’s of sugar and right now we are drinking coffee without sugar.  This is huge in itself! 🙂 We are now appreciating the taste of coffee and need to research is this coffee is gluten free.  We think so, but hey, we will check it out.  Then there is my all time favorite junk food a Quarter Pounder with Cheese.  (We are sitting here thinking about this one)  Bye-bye quarter pounder, our health is more important.  (I can hear my arteries cheering).  Then there is pizza and a zillion other fast foods.  Compared to smoking this will be a challenge and we are thinking that maybe becoming vegan would be the way to go.  (Something to consider)

We do love pasta and that will soon become are new friend.  The sauces will be checked but we like butter as a topping. No cheese of course.  Anchovies are another topping that is a long time favorite.  We doubt if gluten can exist in anchovies, but we will check.

Looks like we are starting a new and exciting adventure and our intent to the universe is to send us someone or a mob or two to guide us as we progress along.  We will be doing some heavy meditations to keep our mind clear so we will see the answers or the people who will be sent.  There has to be a few gluten free souls that came down with us in our soul group. (This where they will surface to join up in our happy journey)

We thank all our subscribers and followers for stopping by an checking out our posts, and to the friends that know us personally please pick yourself off the floor and continue with a great day.

We have nothing else to report at this time except to thank “Ladi” and Jane for their input and support.

American Idol 2018 – Audition #1 Day 2

Another entertaining episode and we did enjoy each contestant.  We usually pick one contestant from the early auditions that we think will be the next American Idol or at least in the top ten.  So here is our choice:

Laine Hardy American Idol # 50098

We liked his voice because it is very unique and his singing seemed like he has been singing forever.

The other person that we remember is the girl friend of the guy who has a crush on Katy Perry.  Why her?  Because she had her ear to the door when he was auditioning and couldn’t get through the door fast enough when he stopped singing.  She is cute, but hey, we are Katy Perry fans.  What is she going to do when her boy friend is in Hollywood?  Probably go with him.  We send her the best.

So here is our second choice from tonight:

David Francisco American Idol # 20098 and a link to his story David Francisco bike accident

So great show and we will continue next week.  Thanks to all for stopping by.

We have nothing else to report except we wonder if they went up against The Voice on purpose?

American Idol 2018 – Audition #1

Filed under: TV Shows — alaboutnothing @ 10:12 pm

Judges Katy Perry, Lionel Richie, and Luke Bryan were beyond awesome in their debut of American Idol 2018.  It was entertaining in every way. Funny, drama, interesting, and even though we did not have any expectations,  we were happy to see that it will be a great season.  Thank ABC for bringing back an entertainment icon and inviting hundreds of young people to follow their dreams.

We do have a suggestion, though.  The blonde screamer who though she is gods gift to music did make us happy to hear her stop singing/screaming should get together with the Russian Dude with the ultra high voice.  Then get married, and go rent a Mustang convertible and drive around neighborhoods singing together breaking windows from NY to LA.  When in LA there is a little know religious sect up in the mountains of Irvine East that praise the high voices of the God Screamy-Mimi.  They both would probably rule this sect and have a constant audience of fans.

We were so entertained that we and an inkling to tryout for American Idol, but we beyond the age limit so far we need to wait for American Idol for Seniors with walkers.  Even if we were the right age, because Katy Perry has been our female favorite singer since she was born would have been an issue.  Without first drinking two or three six packs of beer, we probably could not have made a sound just seeing Katy.  So maybe in our next life we will do some Kundalini Meditations and be ready for singing in front of Katy, Lionel, and Luke.

Thanks again ABC, we are looking for a great season for American Idol.

We have nothing to add except we are putting together a new Katy Perry song list.

American Idol and The Voice 2016

AI 2011 logoThis is the last year for American Idol and since we have been watching since day 1, it will be like losing a friend.  I am guessing it’s due to falling ratings, but we are just guessing.  The sad part is that American Idol was the 1st to start the reality talent show format and when they leave there won’t be another show to replace their format.  The loss of a format for new talent like American Idol uses is not duplicated on any other show that we can think of.  The Voice pre-picks, America’s Got Talent is not a format for singers, and the X Factor currently is only in England.  Maybe Fox will come up with some kind of replacement for pure singing contestants similar to American Idol.  One thing for sure is that up until this season the viewing audience never know who stayed and who went home before the telecast was completed, but this year there have been several “leaks” about results already.  Guess some of the soon to be unemployed employees don’t give a hoot.

voiceThe Voice 2016 started this past Monday with the “Blind Auditions” and once again it is looking like an awesome season.  We say this every year, but it’s true every time.  With Adam, Pharrell, Blake, and Christina as the judges it for sure will be entertaining watching the judge banter.  Tuesday was the 2nd “Blind Audition” and so far we have picked three of four possible winners. Have you picked anyone?  We wonder if the N. Michigan “car-poolies” will be following The Voice this season.  (We won’t know because our source evaporated).  (We think yes).

We have nothing else to report except that even though we never get involved with political news, we can’t resist whats going on this year in the U.S.A.  After all we guess these guys and gals running for the presidency  also are chasing a dream.  (We are not sure what the dream is but maybe we will know by next November).

The Voice Fall Season 2015

voiceIt’s official Blake and Gwen are dating even though a few weeks ago when rumors were flying they said they were just friends.  That goes to prove you can’t trust what two single people seen sneaking around say.  Will this tip the scales when it comes to judging?  They are now on the same team so to speak.  It will be interesting to see if Adam or Pharrell will even mention it.

At least the talent is awesome this year and it’s really getting intense as the “live” shows get near.

We also have been following X-Factor except it’s tough to follow their scheduling on Sunday and Monday at the start to Saturday and Sunday now from what we understand.  Simon Cowell is a judge there and will be coming to the US to be a judge on the next season of America’s Got Talent.  Kind of a long commute from London to New York,  but he probably has his own private jet to cruise around in.

We have nothing else to report except to give a shout out to the Northern Michigan folks.  Because I spent so much time in the Upper Peninsula I been following a sight that posts various sightseeing photos of places like Copper Harbor, the end of US 41, the copper mines, etc.  and now I want to go back and visit.  Maybe next summer.

To all the veterans out there in cyberland we say THANK YOU!

The Voice 2015 Fall Season — The Knockout’s

Filed under: The Voice — alaboutnothing @ 4:16 pm
Tags: , , , , , , , , , ,

voiceNow we know why they call these shows the “The Knockouts”, it’s because as a avid viewer we are just plain knocked out by the concert level vocals by the contestants over the past two nights.  WOW!  We are sure glad we are not judges.

By the way did you see Blake, Adam, Gwen, and Pharrell on the Jimmy Fallon Tonight Show Tuesday night?  If you missed it we are sure you can catch it on YouTube, it was a roar watching Blake sing Y.M.C.A.

This season has certainly not disappointed us, in fact we think it’s way better than any other season, but then again, we say that every season 🙂

We are wondering if the car pool crowd is still watching? Have not heard anything, but they are a fairly quite bunch anyway 🙂

We have also been watching the X Factor – England, but it’s on such an odd schedule, we have missed many episodes.  Sunday and Monday shows and without a doubt Monday is The Voice night and there is no way we are watching the X Factor other than recording it on the DVR.  Then we play catch up because we have recordings from the weekend, and of course Tuesday is out because The Voice is on that night also.  Oh well, the X factor does not get very interesting until the “Live Shows”.

We have nothing else to report except to wonder how many folks have quit smoking recently.  If you used our advise from a few weeks ago have you noticed that it feels like a load has been removed now that you don’t have to worry if you have enough cigarettes? No more searching the entire house, rifling through all your old coats sweaters, drawers, and dress suits looking for a smoke.  No more needing to run to the 7-11 in the middle of the night to get a pack of smokes because your search came up empty.  No more planning an evening out based on if the restaurant has a smoking area and no more yellow junk on the paper towel when you clean your car windows.

The Voice 2015 Fall Season — Let the Battles Begin!

VioceFinally our favorite format of The Voice – The BATTLE Rounds.  The blind auditions we great, but our favorite part of The Voice is the battle rounds.  This is what sets The Voice apart from other vocal reality shows and with the great talent this year is going to be way over the top.  The judge / mentor steals are also going to be interesting.

We have nothing else to report except to say to you all out there in cyberland, see you tomorrow night for the start of the battles.  Thank you for not smoking while visiting and if you were smoking, why don’t you think about quitting? (Scroll down to the Quite Smoking the Easy Way Post a few days ago)
