It's Time For Me To Quit Watching Chopped


May 19, 2015

I have been a huge fan of Chopped, on Food Network since I can remember. I started watching the show years ago. The way I see it now, it can be annoying the way the judges/critics of the contestants judge the food. When a contestant doesn’t put enough food on the plate it is not good enough to be an appetizer, entrée or dessert. 

When it has too much food on the plate they’ll complain it is too much. When can they agree altogether as long as the food tastes really good and not by judging how much that’s on the plate? You can judge the food by not criticizing like an asshole. Like Maneet Chauhan, competed in the Chopped All Stars, she didn’t even make it to the entrée round got chopped on the first round. 

But when she judges on Chopped, she thinks she’s better than anybody else. Same with these judges: Alex Guarnaschelli, Aaron Sanchez, Chris Santos, Scott Conant and Marc Murphy. Maybe it’s time for me to quit watching Chopped, on Food Network, just like with what I did with Real Housewives of Atlanta and Shahs of Sunset. Not watching these shows are not missed at all.

Already Bought The Tickets


May 14, 2015

A few days ago, Doug, told me he was thinking about us going to watch an Indy Car race, at the Texas Motor Speedway. That being said, I was contemplating whether we should go or not as I am thinking about a 6 hours drive on the road just to see the race. Well, last night, I just went to bed for a couple minutes and when I got up he told me he already bought the tickets, got our hotel room reserved. 

My hubby would be willing to drive rain or shine just to watch a game or race which I don’t necessarily like to do. He always calls me a wimp which I’m not!  I just don’t like going to places and doing things that I don’t really like especially now with my migraines and allergies. I really like racing I am just worried about the long drive. 

Anyway, Charles,’ Kindergarten End of Year Celebration, is on May 26, and last day of school is on May 29. I cannot believe he’ll be in First Grade already. Time flies very fast which is a good thing and getting up each day has been very difficult for me especially when I don’t feel like getting up but I have to. Well, summer is just around the corner. What are your plans for the summer? 

For us, my son, Charles, is going to visit his aunt Connie, to do his summer lists which sounds fun. Though this would be interesting for the three of us being away from each other but I think Charles will enjoy himself without us.

Finally, I Saw Their Team Win


May 03, 2015

With a big weekend in sports history which sports did you watch? From Kentucky Derby, NBA Playoffs, NASCAR Xfinity, NHL, MLB, NFL Draft, and Boxing, you probably were glued to television watching one of these sports. As for me, I only watched a few minutes of the Kentucky Derby, and never watched other sports mentioned above. Probably, you’ll say to me, how could I have not watch boxing? Well, I am not really a super-fan of boxing and I don’t want to spend a dime by watching the fight on Pay Per View. Tried to watched it online, but with so many ads popping up every second it was so annoying so I decided to go to bed it was already late at night. 

Anyway, I have mentioned on my blogs that my son, Charles, is playing soccer. Finally, I saw their team win yesterday, 9-4. Charles, made 4 goals and 1 goal hit the post which doesn’t count. Just made this mama so proud and so was Charles, and Doug. As always, the coach was late and the game has already started before he arrived, thanks to his assistant who’s always there for the team. At least tomorrow is their last practice and Tuesday, is their last game at 6 o’clock. Hopefully the team can win on their last game. Also, this week is Charles’, Gentry Safari Field Trip, and we are both looking forward to that.

The Guitar Center

So if you are serious about your electric guitar and want to really be heard you need not just a great guitar and amp, you also need other accessories. One of the most important of those is a good preamp. The guitar center is a great place to find a great line of Focusrite preamps that are sure to fill and satisfy all your needs.
