way to go stardust! I'm down just one but that was before the pizza. I've decided I can't walk the dog, hurts my feet, but I am working on my indoor bike and doing lots of squats etc. And I've been busy which cuts into my eating time.
My dad comes home tomorrow (after his stroke rehab) he'll be living on TV dinners, lol. Don't know yet how that will affect me. Hubby and I eat about the same, kid doesn't eat, grandpa usually hungry. It's going to be interesting.
Well we are all up together. I've gotten away from my don't eat after 8pm so need to add that back in. Gum chewing is hurting my jaw so having to find something else to occupy my mouth. I got some xylitol lolipops that are sugar free as well as the xylitol being good for your teeth. I did that treadmill stress test a couple of weeks ago, they really slant the deck and go fast so you have to hang on and it's pretty jarring even if a walk is all I can do. Well my legs, especially my hips have not recovered yet so I take the dog walking but it's not that pleasant of a stroll. Here's for more positive notes from all of us next week. I'll slip myself some b12 too.
Joining in on the Shitt's Creek binge watching. Only made it two episodes so far but hubby likes it so we will probably get the series done. Had to figure out how to chromecast it on Windows 10. (Chrome not working at all on my computer so have to use DS's laptop) A bit like Grace and Frankie.
Since it is slow, I have a quick question. For the first time ever yesterday and today I had to sign in when I went to adamtopia.com
I have always just remained signed in all the time and was wondering if settings or changes have been made that will now require you to sign in each visit and no longer be able to stay signed in to the site after you close the window.
Guess this is a question for Q3, but was curious to see if others are now having to sign in also....
I stay logged in all the time and haven't had any problem lately. Use Chrome. I looked but didn't see a setting that enables you to stay logged in all the time...maybe Sizzling can tell you where to find that feature.
Usually the "keep me signed in" checkbox is on the sign in page itself. Click it before submit. But if you've done that and it's still logging you out then something is up on your computer most likely that is removing cookies. Save
Haven't weighed for a couple of days so no idea where I'm at but I think the same. Had bloodwork done last month and weirdly the last several years I'm in the good zone for cholesteral whereas even just 5 years ago they wanted to put me on statins. About the only thing that has changed is I have some Nutella everyday. Maybe hazel nuts are good for me?
Oh I know some health news. I'd been having some chest pains over the last couple of months and they put me on acid reflux pills. But still went in and did a treadmill stress test. Good results said I only had a 2% chance of blockage or heavy cholesteral in my arteries. Yeah, now on to other issues lol. Anyway that has made my knees pretty stiff. Test only takes about 10 minutes to get up to the heartrate but they move you along at a brisk clip to do that. So it's slow short dog walks for me now that the snow is gone.
My short term memory lasts about 5 seconds after I get on the scale in the morning and say "It's Wednesday, I should post". So thanks for posting so that I saw it in the recent posts list. I'm back down 2 (despite valentines) and just flirting with the number I was at a few years ago. Body seems to like jumps up or down and then finds it's happy place. So I just need to fast for 48 hours again, someplace that's not home. Yeah that home part is the kicker.
Yes, I am having the very same problem. It's like as if twitter pre-selects which of the people I follow actually get shows in my timeline. And I only noticed it now, but it must have been going on for quite some weeks, because certain people post daily and yet, at some point their tweets stopped reaching me. Not sure why?
One feed that I notice I am not getting anymore is Nate Silver @natesilver538 . I heard that twitter-administration shadows certain users, but would they do that for such an account? Would be quite alarming, if that were the case. I am trying to figure that out myself, and so it is interesting to read that you have the same problem. Frustrating. Please let me know, if you find something about that.
Well I'm not getting Queen anymore. What's with that? And creativesharka a couple of times already. gelly today also for one post. I sometimes also only find out about a tweet if someone else retweets them or quotes them while I'm following that person. Very frustrating. I've checked my setting already a couple of times. I have turned everything off that would indicate that twitter can influence my timeline, but still it somehow does that.
ETA: I filed a case with twitter help. Hope they respond or at least do something about it.
Might try something like Hootsuite to see if going through a third party brings over everything. Hootsuite is free and you can view all the multiple lists you've made from peeps you follow and hashtags or searches. Save
I think as fans we can be very bias. Just because Adele no Adam Lambert. Doesent mean we should diminish her success or talent. Adele is one of the best contemporary voices of our time. Adams screwed up from time to time on live tv. Amas cough. But Doesent make him less of a vocalist. Because of it.
Anyway, I wonder when Adam we'll start making real movements on A4. Hopefully real soon. Early March possibly. Album released after the Qal tour. August probably.
I don't think that we CAN diminish her success. The whole world KNOWS that she is successful.
I don't really agree that she has one of the best contemporary voices of our time. Sorry, I just don't. I prefer many female singers over her.
When has Adam screwed up on live TV? Do you have examples? I can't remember anything except the AMAs and that screw up was not about his voice. Thanks
and PS....don't start saying to me that I have a hostile tone again. lol I DO NOT. I am genuinely curious when he screwed up from time to time on live TV. 8 years is a long time being his fan. I might have forgot those screw ups.
As far as making real movements on A4...I think he is. He has said that he is in the studio already and just starting. Seems it will be a while though. I do however think that we will get something before QAL kicks off. I can't wait for something new from him.
lol, I'm glad you added that PS because I was getting some vibes up to that point. I'll disagree with you about the AMAs not being about his voice. But you wanted other examples and I'll throw in Divas. I think it took a couple of years for Adam to get over his nerves on one-time tv appearances on the Voice etc in other countries and the vocals skipped just slightly several times, I can't pull out exact times and dates for you. I said it at the time several times and only lately have been getting agreement from others about those past years and the nerves.
On Adele, I think she has a pretty voice and she's very good at what she does. I don't think that she does a lot of different things but then I only hear what's on the radio. Save
Wow! Look at this ad about the drones used at the Super Bowl halftime. This is great!
IntelVerified account @intel 14h14 hours ago Our drones have returned to the ground after an amazing #PepsiHalftime show #ExperienceMore
OT But these drones bring back a memory. The year was 1966 and group of friends and I were in the yard in Arlington Texas. We noticed a small light hovering above us about 40 feet in the air and 100 yards from us. No noise, nothing. It flew off and amidst crys of alien invasion one of my friends and I jumped in the car and followed. it headed toward a military base close by. So I think they have been working on drones since the '60s.
My dad saw a light like that in the 50s. No sound just hovering over a house like it was listening and then took off straight up. No military base within 100 miles or more.
For Gaga I think they should have shown at least one drone closeup. I just thought they were tv special effects. Save
My opinion? Of course Adam can read music enough to get the gist of the lyric and timing. He only has to know that notes on the bottom are lower than those on the top and that more notes between vertical lines means faster and notes with a curved line between them slide into each other. Memorize the two C positions and adjust from there. He had singing lessons for yearssss. I doubt very much that he was just given a sheet with words on it and his hired teachers would consider that sufficient for a vocalist. Doesn't he warm up singing scales?
But to Adam and Neil does that mean he "reads" music? Well I can do as much as the above and I can pick out the one note melody on a piano with my right hand and if I practice really hard I could memorize a series of two hand chords. Of course I completely forget to look for what scale it's in so if it's a bflat or fsharp or whatever those things are then that means a lot of pencil notes because I'm stuck in C and 4/4 time. My son in marching band on the other hand not only has to read music but play it while marching in multiple time signatures and patterns, he's way above me. Meanwhile another band kid hears full multi-instrumental concertos in his head and writes music for the philharmonic.
Adam has said back before Idol that he played around with songs using computer programs. You need to know some basics to add the right drum rhythm and other instruments. He can still do that today and with his phone if he's on the road and gets a melody in his head all he has to do is hit record and it's saved and he can replay it and weave harmonies around it.
