I've set mine to record as well - a couple of times during the day just to make sure I get the right episode.

Great news, but I can't find him listed on that day for the show. Adam has indeed tweeted that he's glad to be on Ellen next week, but didn't give a date. I tweeted him asking if he knew the broadcast date but yet no reply.

Just bought Avicii's new album that contains the new song. The album is charting as is one of the songs. Unfortunately, not Adam's - yet!

Love the new song with Niles Rogers and Avicii "Lay Me Down" and so does everybody else! It's charting in several countries. It's getting great reviews here,too. I saw a quick item that his management company says he's working on a new album. He's playing with Queen real soon in Las Vegas and Glee is on his plate. Lots of good stuff for our favorite guy!

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Back home after 11 days at the cottage and lots of swimming. Gonna miss it, but hopefully will be back up for the Labour Day Weekend. In my neck of the woods, this August thus far has been much cooler than normal (as I type it's only 18C (64F) so I'm thinking Sept. will be warmer than normal. Hate to think that in just 2 1/2 weeks the kiddies go back to school and my Linc will be starting full day for an almost 4 year old is too much me thinks so a big adjustment is ahead for my little guy!!

Have a great evening all!!!

I saw a quick clip of an interview done by Chris Colfer and it doesn't sound like he's liking the Adam addition to Glee. He said Adam was going to play his nemisis. He kinda screwed up his face. We'll see. This is either going to kill or catapult Adam.

Oh my, his version of Mad World is simply spectacular. I also love Ring of Fire. His voice is like no other. Was lucky to see him perform on his first tour and am waiting very impatiently for another opportunity. Love, love him!!

What's with this way-below-normal weather we're having in my neck of the woods - wow, a day's high of 68F (20C) just doesn't cut it for August - bet we're going to have a hot September! Still able to get in swimming here at the cottage though which matters most to me - with the high winds the water seems actually warmer than the air - amazing!!

Hope you found some time to smell roses today - have a great evening!!!

I'm looking forward to the new music he is working on. And, of course, it'll be a treat to see him with Queen again. I would love to go to the festival in Las Vegas where they are playing, but the thing sells out in minutes and it'll be expensive in any case. I'm luckier than most in that I've seen him live multiple times.

I watched his AI performance of 'A Mad World' again the other day. I'd like to hear some more stuff like that. Tightly controlled emotion.

Happy Tuesday!

Back from the cottage after 10 days where it was really wet - weather could have been worse, but it really could have been better - did have a beautiful summer's day on Saturday which was nice. Back home it's no drier, with yesterday bringing an all-time record rainfall amount - lots of flooding, trees down and power outages. Flash flooding caused many cars and trains to be trapped and people were still being rescued at midnight last night. And there's still more rain to come today and tomorrow so we can expect more flooding as ground is at saturation point. So much for the predictions of a normal summer this year. We're only one week into July and already it's a record breaking month for moisture.

Have a great day no matter what the weather!!!

Happy June everyone!

It might not have been the best Spring this year, but by the time June comes around we know that the better weather is here to stay. So here we go, another opportunity for a fresh start and a chance to get it right. Better weather means we can move more outside so let's take advantage of it. June, here we come!!

Have a wonderful day all!!!

Happy Thursday all!

For us Canuckers, the first long weekend of the season is almost here - woohoo - and my house is getting ready to go away to the cottage. My guys have already been up, but this will be my first time for 2013 Weather looks like it's going to be great, hope the bugs aren't too bad though - I'm finding that as I'm getting older they bother me more LOL! Last year at this time everyone was able to swim, but I don't think so this year. Even putting in the dock is going to be a chilly challenge. Just having lots of sunshine and warm Spring temps will be a treat.

Hope you all have a great weekend when yours' start.

I agree totally what both of you are saying. It's true, sadly, that the US is still against anything "different". (Not my words...) The funny thing is Adam's not different.
The fear this country has of the gays and lesbians is ridiculous. Yes, Adams parents raised him well. We all should be so lucky for our children to turn out as well balanced. He has a head on his shoulders and knows who he is as well as where he wants his life to go. And he's not afraid of working for balance and peace of mind.
I pray by the time my child is an adult most of this homophobia in this country (USA) is a thing of the past. I teach my child to be herself and embrace her differences as well as the things that bring us all together. This includes respecting other peoples decisions.
I really hope Adam does come around here because I would love to see him in concert. I saw he won the GLAAD award. Wonderful. He's a great performer and I love his voice.
I hope everyone has a wonderful Tuesday!!

I think that first performance had a HUGE impact on his likability. For the majority of the viewers, this was his introduction to the world. And, while support for gay rights has grown, there is still a big swatch of the country (especially the south) that think gays are evil. He turned them off big time. Not to mention, he stuffed so much performance into it that he could t keep up with his choreography and for the first time ever, was off key!

If I didn't already love him, I don't think I would have been interested. I would have thought, though, that his popularity would have picked up after Waddaya want from me was so successful. I saw him in concert a couple times. Once he came to Phoenix and once I drove to California. I feel very fortunate that I did that. At the time, I felt I needed to get into those because he was going to become an arena artist & lose the intimacy of the small venues. Now, I wonder if he'll ever another concert in the US.

He owns China - isn't that something?! He was just awarded their top honor for an international artist award! He just got a GLAAD award, too. If you haven't seen the speech, track it down. He has a great sense of humor - and continues to ask for harmony in his community. I think his parents have raised a wonderful guy.

Sorry, but I think there's still quite a lot of homophobia in the US more so than in many other countries who are by and large much more open-minded and can see Adam for the amazing talent that he is. I remember when Gene Simmons met Adam and told him it would be better for him career-wise to keep his private life under wraps, I was really put off by his comments, but in retrospect he was probably right sad to say. Thank goodness I live in Canada where he's quite popular and his sexuality really isn't an issue.

Thanks for the info on Adam. I had no idea he was going to be on TV. I'll definitely set my DVR.
I listen to his music every day. (Like now, I'm playing FYE on Spotify. ) And YES, I definitely agree with how his music gets you moving. When I wait for the tea kettle to boil in the morning I dance along to his music in my kitchen. My daughter thinks I'm nuts but I tell her he's helping me get healthy. LOL!!!
I saw him interviewed and he mentioned about how he's more welcomed in other countries. That's sad...he's American born and bred and I think he's extremely talented as well as a nice person, yet, this is how we treat him? I personally think it's not fans but the news people and the "management" of clubs and sources of publication. Was it because of the AMA performance all those years ago? Rediculous!
OK I've said enough. We all know I'm a fan. LOL I hope everyone had a wonderful Mothers Day and here's to another great week! emoticon

Welcome, I see you and I share a few teams - woohoo! Big Congrats on doing so well since joining SP - so glad it works for you - keep up the good work! It's really about eating less and moving more I think and Adam's music is sure good to move to - and just in case you didn't know, he's appearing on the American Idol finale show next Wednesday - singing a duet with the gal, Angie Miller, who came in third. He was also featured on film last week on AI with an update of what he's doing. It was a good bit, but shows that he's more popular outside the US. Wishing you well as you continue working on your goals!!!

They did a quick piece about him last week and skuttlebutt is he's singing a duet with the woman who should have won - Angie. They are a good fit as they are both theatrical and able to sing anything. He's gonna have to hold back a bit but I'm confident his direction on wardrobe, staging, and arrangements will help blow the rest of 'm away. I can't wait!

EDWARDS1411 I just found this team on your page. YAY!! I love him. I listen everyday to him( Just as I am now. LOL)
I missed his rise to fame in 2009 and 2010 because I was busy with my parents...(My dad got sick in 2008 and died in 2009 and right after, my mom started going down hill and 1 year and 1 week later, she died. I lived with her and am raising my daughter alone so, I was a little busy to watch TV. )
I'm making up for lost time. We are fans here and so glad to be a part of your team.
Been on SP religiously since March. Lost 11 pounds and losing inches. Feel wonderful. SP saved me.

Falling is inevitable. The challenge is to get up and keep the end in site.

I haven't seen anything about that, but it makes perfect sense since he hasn't been on yet this year.

"The first of April, some do say,
Is set apart for All Fools' Day.
But why the people call it so,
Nor I, nor they themselves do know.
But on this day are people sent
On purpose for pure merriment."

Happy April Fool's Day!!!

An Irish Blessing

Lucky stars above you,
Sunshine on your way,
Many friends to love you,
Joy in work and play,
Laughter to outweigh each care,
In your heart a song,
And gladness waiting everywhere,
All your whole life long!

Welcome March!

Most of us have had a real winter this year and with March now here we can look forward to:
- Spring which arrives on the 20th at 7:02 a.m. EDT.
- As well, Daylight Savings kicks in on the 11th giving us an extra hour of daylight in the evenings - woohoo!
- Easter is early this year - Good Friday is on the 29th with Easter Sunday on the 31st.

Some fun facts about March:
- The word 'March' comes from the Roman 'Martius'. This was originally the first month of the Roman calendar and was named after Mars, the god of war.
- March was the beginning of the calendar year. It changed to the 'New Style' or 'Gregorian calendar in 1752, and it is only since then that the year began on 1st January.
- The Anglo-Saxons called the month Hlyd monath which means Stormy month, or Hraed monath which means Rugged month.

"March is an in between month,
When wintry winds are high.
But milder days remind us all,
Spring's coming by and by."

"Winds of March, we welcome you,
There is work for you to do.
Work and play and blow all day,
Blow the winter cold away."

~ Authors Unknown

Indeed, Welcome March!!!

Happy Thursday and last day of February 2013!

Where did the month go?? Albeit actually my most unfav month of the year as winter seems just tooooooo long - and it has been a real winter this year - but ironically the shortest month of the year too. Looking forward to March with hopefully less winter and a bit of Spring and with that getting to walk outside some - a challenge for me. I've been doing well in the house, but with supports - hate the idea of having to use a cane outside, but if it gets me moving more in the "fresh" air then I'll use it.

Enjoy this last day of Feb. 2013 as we won't see it again so make it count!!!

Happy Valentine's Day!

Some fun trivia about this day:

- February 14th is the second most popular card-giving holiday. Christmas is the first.
- Men spend an average of $156.22 on Valentine's Day gifts, flowers and cards.
Women, by contrast, spend just $85.08.
- The first heart-shaped box of candy was sold in 1868 by Richard Cadbury.
- The expression "wear your heart on your sleeve" comes from a Middle Ages Valentine's Day tradition. Young men and women would draw the name of their Valentine from a bowl. They would wear their selected name on their sleeves for one week.

"A baby is born with a need to be loved - and never outgrows it". ~ Frank A. Clark

Enjoy the day, spread a little love and remember to first and foremost love yourself -

“You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe, deserve your love and affection.”
~ Buddha

Happy Monday!

Whew, got lots of snow last night, more than was called for, and then we had freezing rain and now the rain has started. What a mess the yard was already and some serious shovelling had to be done or we're going to be into one very slushy mess with the dogs going in and out soooooo before even eating breakfast I tackled it. Wow was it ever heavy to shovel, but 45 min. later the deed was done - boy did I sweat - must have shed more than a few calories too. The good thing I could not have done that last year, yes I could shovel, but not that heavy stuff for that long - woohoo goes to show you I've been doing something right of late - pretty darn good for a very soon-to-be 64 year old. Yehhhhh for me!! (Sorry just had to toot my own horn LOL!)

Keep Sparking - it works! And enjoy the day no matter what the weather is!!!

Happy Hump Day!

Did you know that:

We burn more calories trying to stay warm in the wintertime - the more we shiver, the more we burn!

"The amount of time spent trying to warm up has a direct impact on the number of calories burned. According to the American Council On Exercise, you may burn about 400 calories an hour from shivering, depending on the temperature and the heaviness of your clothing." Hmmm.

Conversely, however, we burn more calories exercising in the heat -- as our body tries to cool down -- than we do when exercising in the cold.

Burn baby burn!!

Enjoy the day all!!!

Happy Tuesday!

Brrrrrrr, is it ever cold in my neck of the woods. I know there are lots of places much colder (northern Ontario is far worse), but everything is relative and it's tooooooo cold for me. -13C (9F) with a windchill of -20C (-4F) - yuck, yuck, yuck, and it's going to be like this for most of the week - more yucks. Supposedly January is the coldest month of the year in the Northern Hemisphere and conversely in the Southern Hemisphere it's the hottest - hot sounds good to me right now!

Hope it's warmer in your neck of the woods! Stay warm all and keep moving!!!

Happy New Year all!

Despite having lots of my sons' friends over and kiddies running around, my DH and I had a quiet evening. We slipped away about nineish and watched TV for awhile. But this was the first time ever that I couldn't stay awake to see the New Year in. (DH fell asleep much sooner than me LOL.) Sampled too many snack foods and goodies though which left me feeling very bloated and yucky afterwards, a good reminder why I had stopped doing that (or so I had thought) - won't do it again any time soon for sure!! Definitely time to get back on track!

So as Edith Lovejoy Piece said, "As We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day."

as well as Oprah Winfrey, "Cheers to a new year and another chance for us to get it right."

Let's do it! Enjoy the holiday everyone!!!
