Yeah, Amanda, I definitely didn't like Blake's hair color either. He looks SOOOOO much better with the blonde hair.

Did anyone else think that Ford commercial last night was weird? I thought it was right up Blake's alley though. Also, LaKisha looked awesome with the red streaks in her hair. Too bad she didn't keep them in after shooting the commercial. I thought they really made her look kind of sexy and current.

I think Lakiesha should be in movies after AI. She is funny, has a dead pan sense of humor and a great look. I would rather see her than listen to her sing... She sings ok, but I like her more than I like her singing. I am glad blake changed his hair. I think he is too plain looking with the blonde hair. He needs to shake things up. Too many men who are stars never invest in their looks. WOmen have to constantly change hair styles, update trends in style. It is nice to see a male performer who feels the need to shake things up. I like to see a man work as hard as a woman!

I'm a fan of Blake's and I think he might be going home tomorrow. I hope he has enough fans to keep him in. Jordin as usual was great. I hope she goes to the finals.

I really like Jordin! She has this positive energy that just seems to surround her, she makes you want to watch her.

Hubby thinks LaKisha will be going home tonight. I'd be happy if he were right, she bores me to tears. I just tune out when she's singing. She chooses the most boring songs. Ugh... I hope that Blake stays. I really enjoy his music. It's really exciting for me to hear what he's going to do. He's so talented. I really wish he would change his hair back though. He just doesn't have the same effect on me with the brown hair.

I didnt like last night show very much. None of them did an awesome job. I actually hope melinda goes home, i would be so happy. Yes she can sing, but that is all she can do, she cant dance, she cant perform and she cant make me want to buy anything she produces.

I think jordins first song was awesome. I would like for her to win, but im not sure she will. But i do think she will get an record deal no matter what.

I love blake, i like he is original, his songs werent awesome last night, but i still love him, I voted for an hour straight for him last night lol.

I like lakisha, i really dont want her to go home.

I think i will be sad no matter who goes home, unless it is melinda but i doubt that will happen

I wasn't too impressed with the performances last night...or I should say the songs...I actually didn't WATCH the performances much because I wanted to just hear the songs without any other distractions. I have to honestly say that I don't think I would have bought any of them except for maybe Jordin's first song. That was awesome.

I also really don't like Blake's dark hair...he almost reminded me of peewee herman last night. :P I still really like him though. I do think that he should not do his thing on every single song. That was one of the things I was listening too last night...couldn't imagine buying a C.D where every single song had that on it.

I also think (boy, I'm full of opinions today :lol: -- just ignore me :lol: ) Paula should shorten her comments--the more she talks the more it doesn't make sense sometimes. :P But, I still love her. ;)

Phew, where did all that come from :lol:

Blake is the only reason I'm watching the show, so I really hope he doesn't go home. I hope it's Lakisha. I'm not a big fan of Melinda but at least she's not boring every time. Not once has Lakisha sung and I was interested. Some of it's song choice, but a lot of it is delivery. I doubt Blake can win, so I hope it's Jordin.

I don't know what it is but Blake has lost my interest. I differently think his hair color makes him look plain and just dull looking. He wasn't great at his first song but I thought he could of easily won over the judges with his second but he choose a song that nobody ever heard of and I always think that's a risk. That set him up for the b-box criticism.

Lakisha is my choice to get the boot tonight. She been hanging on by a thread,...time to take the scissors to it.

Melinda's always good but that's can be boring too, she's to predictable. I like her yet I don't think she'll be a big hit with record sales. She doesn't have that youthfulness about her. She looks like a well preserved 35 year old and isn't that what we got last year with Taylor Hicks. :( I just realized how mean that sounded....sorry.

So my vote goes to Jordin to win now. I always loved her and her first song was great. She was off pitch with the second song but I think she is so young that she probably hasn't heard it that many times. I really think it's between her and Dolittle.

I didn't care for the BeeGees then or now, lol. Not my favorite night of songs at all.

I thought that Jordin did the best, and she'll be who I root for to win. I agree that it's LaKisha's turn to go home tonight.

Is Taylor Hicks even around anymore? I couldn't stand him last season. I haven't heard any of his stuff on the radio or TV or anything. Granted, he probably doesn't do any of the kinds of music that I like...

I actually really liked the way he did the second song...I'd not heard it before either but I really liked it...too bad the judges didn't. :P

Taylor Hicks annoys me, he looks too old for what he really is. I cannot stand to look at him.

I really liked the second song also. I hadn't heard it before either, but I thought it was really good, very modern. I was shocked that the judges didn't praise him.

Taylor Hicks annoys me, he looks too old for what he really is. I cannot stand to look at him.

I am so glad that I'm not the only one that feels that strongly about Taylor Hicks. He is the embodiment of nails down a chalk board, grinding teeth, metal on metal...

Hicks drove me nuts! Always acting like Ray Charles, it was insulting. Charles did what he did because he was blind, it was just wrong to watch a man who can see do it. My kids admire me, but they don't sit on the pot pretending their poop is toxic.

I am glad Jordin is still in the competition, she is very talented and she has a great look. She always has outfits on that compliment her personality as well. John says he likes her hair better when it is curly and for awhile I agreed but last night she had it straight and then curled at the ends and it had some bounce and looked great.

You guys are funny about Taylor Hicks... He wasn't my favorite last time either!

I'm glad that it was LaKisha to go home last night.

Do you all think that they pick their clothes or someone does it for them? I just thought that most every week her outfits were awful. Someone with as big as chest as she has should NOT be wearing the things she wore!

I was sad to see lakisha go home, but i figured no way they were going to let an single mom win again. I think they want a new type of person every year. I hope it will be blake this yr, but i have an feeling it will be a girl, and how i pray its not melinda, i will not buy her music if she does.

I liked taylor hicks, just liked i like rueben, but i dont hear much about wither one of them and its kind of depressing. All i ever hear of is carrie and kelly.

paula

I seen ellen the other day, and phil and chris were on, Phil said he might not tour this summer cause of the navy, which i think is sad. I know i was upset when josh gracin didnt tour either.

    • Mashed potato soup during healing
      I was on pretty much a liquid diet for 8 months waiting for my nausea to go away completely. I mostly had mashed potato soup, 1/2 fat ice cream (mostly whey, not milk), chocolate drink (no added milk) and gummy vitamins. The soup tasted yummy and I'm still alive so I figured I'd share it for people not feeling well in the beginning. I've been noticing people with alot of trouble keeping food down in recent posts. I couldn't have milk or eggs, but the cheese in the recipe didn't bother me at all. Notice the lack of spices. Makes it easy on the stomach.   Mashed potato soup: Boiled yukon gold potatoes (5lb bag) 1 package cauliflower, steamed 4-6 slices of Land O'Lakes white American cheese 4 tablespoons butter salt 16 cups homemade chicken broth, salted   Chop steamed cauliflower into teensy bits (pureed is better). Put in mixer with butter, cheese and a potato or two. Blend while slowly adding potatoes. Keep whipping for a few minutes to insure the cauliflower and potatoes are not lumpy at all. Salt to taste.   Combine 1/2 cup mashed potatoes to 1 cup salted chicken broth. Mix with spoon until mashed potatoes have completely dissolved. Enjoy. Individual servings can be frozen.   Homemade chicken broth: makes 8 - 10 cups of broth   1 organic chicken (regular chickens are too big) 1 stalk celery 1 carrot 1 large bay leaf 1/2 package fresh thyme from the  herb section of the vegetables area   Put all ingredients in pressure cooker along with 1.5 liters water. Bring to pressure. Cook for 35 minutes. Separate broth from solids. Separate broth from fat. Add ridiculous quantities of salt until it tastes like soup. Sorry I use a salt grinder so I don't have precise salt quantities.    
    • I have kidney stones...spent last night at the ER
      Hey ArtG, I saw the urologist today...unfortunately for me they can still see my stones on an xray.  Sigh.  The largest is 3x6 in my right kidney.  He does not believe I can pass this one on my own.   All of my bloodwork came back fine.  Nothing alarming in the urinalysis either. His recommendations...keep drinking tons of water.  I had 4.2 liters of urine output when I tested.  Add in a fish oil supplement.  Decrease sodium intake.  Limit meat to 10 ounces per day.  Increase dietary calcium.   Work at lowering oxalate consumption...my urinary oxalate was 45.  They want it between 20 and 40.  But he gets people that are over 100 so mine is not all that high. 3 options...1. watch and wait.  Recheck in a few months to see if there is stone growth.  2. Shock wave lithotripsy.  3. Let it come out when it decides to and see what happens. I just don't know.  I hate the idea of being put under as they would do for the shock wave thing.  I've had too many surgeries already.  It scares me to be honest.  I also don't want to deal with another episode.   I don't know what I'll do.  We've got a vacation planned at the end of the month and I just want to go and enjoy that.  Not worry about kidney stones. I'm sorry to hear about your upcoming surgery...it really is always something!
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      I know what food products are. Probiotics was a recent example I saw on the news about things labeled gluten free that were not gluten free. So, supplement labels in addition to food labels.
    • celiac disease is psychosomatic
      Probiotics are not food products and are not governed by the same laws.    
    • I have kidney stones...spent last night at the ER
      Iceland Girl, I discussed with urologist my celiac diet, and items mentioned on this thread, spinach, chocolate, and nuts, with nuts being the item of the three  eat the most of, and he was not overly concerned, suggested that I drink more water (which I am needing to do anyway).  I am glad there is no more treatment needed as I just found out cataract surgery in one eye is necessary, damn, enough already!  How did your follow-up go?

      Hi There, I don't know if there is a place for videos in the forum. I just watched "The Truth About Gluten" I think it is a good video. I would like to share it somewhere but don't know where it should go. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
      Here is the link if you have never watched it.

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!
