The Amazing Performances At The Grammy Awards

Post contributed by Patricia Singleton

I had so much fun watching the Grammy awards this year. The tribute that was sung for Aretha Franklin was excellent. I really enjoyed Martina McBride, Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Hudson, Florence Welch and Yolanda Adams. They sang several really great Aretha Franklin songs such as “You Make Me Feel” and “Sisters Are Doing It for Themselves.”

My kids had fun watching Cee Lo's performance with Gwyneth Paltrow and the Muppets. Cee Lo reminded me of Elton John in the 70s with the wild outfit and playing at the piano. Gwyneth was dressed in a skin tight cat suit and looked really good.

Lady Gaga performed for the Grammy crowd when she emerged from an egg. She sang her new single and her vocal performance was really good. The dancing was energetic and I liked what all of the dancers were wearing.

Bruno Mars performed his new song “Nothin' on You” with B. o. B and sang the song beautifully. He then sang his hit song “Grenade” and several backup singers performed with him. Next Monae was up and she performed her song “Cold War” I thought her singing was really good, but I was glad I didn't have to sit behind her hair.

I watched the Grammy Awards on my satellite TVtvbydirect.com and was able to rewind the performances that I enjoyed the most and watch them again.

The Boys on the Go!!!


After the long 13 yrs of waiting, Dallas Cowboys has finally won a playoff game! Can you imagine how the entire franchise, staffs, team and the fans go crazy about this game? Winning the seasons 3 games against the long-time rival Philadelphia Eagles stir the most exciting season of the Cowboys! Two weekends in a row, the Eagles went home with broken wings, so to speak. :-)

Cowboys are only 2 games shy from the Superbowl but the roads towards there will surely not a smooth and easy journey. Playing against the Minnesota Vikings will surely be tough. I am sure Farve and Rice won't just give up the win that easy so as Romo and his team!

Sunday game is only 3 nights away and I am sure a lot of Cowboys and Vikings fan are already anxious and nervous to know who will come out as winners!

How about you, any prediction as to which team will proceed to the championship round?

For me, no other than my dear Cowboys! How bout them boys???

It Took 2 Months, Can You Believe That?

When you least expect it, it happens.

I still remember, it was on the Friday, 25 of September, when I sent the pictures and house layout/plan to my parents in the Philippines. A month has passed and they still didn't receive it so we thought it was already lost. We even joked that perhaps the office was flooded and my letter was one of the unfortunate stuff that was not able to survive from typhoon Ondoy.

I was hopeless so as my parents that they will still receive the mail. So, I decided to scan and email them the house plan/layout in fear that if I am going to send it again through the post office it won't reach them again. I was thinking of using private courier but they charge so much to send pictures and document.

Today, I opened my Chikka account and I saw that Mama sent me a text on the 20th telling me that they finally received the mail. OMG! Yes, it took 2 months for them to receive it. The post office said that if it is a registered mail, it usually takes longer but I never thought it would take 60 days to reach them.

Well, I guess, the good thing is they finally receive it and my parents are happy to see the pictures!!!!

I am sure there are a lot of ways to save during this difficult time. It is just a matter of finding the good deals that are available in the market these days.

Yes, life is tough right now.

It's Venezuela Once Again!

Venezuela reigns again in the 2009 Ms. Universe held in Nassau, Bahamas, August 23, 2009. Dayana Mendoza crowned her successor fellow Venezuelan, 18 year-old, Stefania Fernandez. Venezuela surely made a history in the Miss Universe pageant after winning the Miss Universe title in 2 consecutive years.

The following are the winners of the 2009 Ms. Universe pageant held in the beautiful island of Bahamas.

Ms. Universe 2009 : Stefania Fernandez (Ms. Venezuela)
Ms. Universe 1st runner-up : Ada Aimee De la Cruz (Ms. Dominican Republic)
Ms. Universe 2nd runner-up : Gona Dragusha (Ms. Kosovo)
Ms. Universe 3rd runner-up : Rachael Finch (Ms. Australia)
Ms. Universe 4th runner-up : Mayra Matos Perez (Ms. Puerto Rico)

Hubby's bet was Ms. Puerto Rico that is why he was stunned when the result comes and Ms. Puerto Rico was only crowned as the 4th runner up. For me, I believe that Ms. Dominican Republic and Ms. Venezuela are one of the strongest contenders in the pageant and very much deserving to win. On the other hand, it is sad to note that Philippines bet Bianca Manalo didn't make it this year. Oh well, there is always another year and who knows next time Philippines will take home the crown...

Summer Fun at Morey's Piers

I never been up North since I arrived here in the US. I have been wanting to spend couple of days in New Jersey and New York. I want to experience the glam and the rush of the bigger cities. I bet it will be a new and remarkable experience for me and hubby. I have a friend who lives in New Jersey and she promise that she is going to give me a tour to New Jersey attractions if I will pay her a visit. She added that New Jersey Shore beach vacation at the Moreys Piers is also a superb option. June to August is the perfect time to spend in Moreys Piers since it is during this time of the year when FREE Radio Disney Summer Concert Series are held. If you want to see Top Radio Disney artists then surely this is an opportunity that you won't miss. So for your next summer vacation, consider Morey's Piers.
