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...

Yep, a little bit of hair grease and he would have been the spittin image. :lol:

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.

    • These are all low in fermentable carbs, but limit amounts to see what is tolerated (for us, 2 tortillas, two biscuits, one sandwich round) and don't load up on lots of baked goods in a day  I try to limit it to one baked good per day   Tortilla/ flat bread:  http://comfybelly.com/2013/04/tortillas-and-a-book-giveaway/#.WScABoFOmEc Sandwich Rounds (good with peanut butter): http://comfybelly.com/2013/08/sandwich-rounds-using-almond-flour/#.WScAm4FOmEc Biscuit (these are amazing. Make them sweet and serve with strawberries and coconut cream, savory and make sausage sandwiches, etc): http://healthyindulgences.net/2008/08/easy-low-carb-gluten-free-biscuits/
    • Thank you so much for sharing... we struggle with my daughters diet but it has only been 10 months so we are still learning the ropes. 
    • Also want to say that a lot of gluten free  recipes are not good for SIBO- too many starches. Also large quantities of almond flour or coconut flour have too much fermentable fibers so be careful with Paleo/SCD recipes too.  It's a bit of a balancing act in what you make and how much is eaten (that's why I like fast Tract- you can qualify things and it works).
    • My daughter is now 11 and we are finally on top of her SIBO (since she was 8).  Diet is super important. I know it's hard with kids, but a diet low in fermentable carbs is key. Especially when SIBO appears to be chronic.  I suggest looking into the Fast Tract Diet. There is a book and an app. Using glycemic index, fiber, and total carbs, the diet tells you the fermentation potential of different foods. There is a point system. The goal is to keep your fermentation potential points between 20-30 per day when you are experiencing SIBO symptoms, and then slowly increase to 40 points for the long term maintenance.  It is important to note that Fast Tract is not strictly gluten free. So you have to choose that yourself.  This system has worked very well for my daughter.  She also takes Atrantil daily and her GI at U of C suggested once a month going on a preventative herbal antibiotic.  Honestly, this is the best she has felt in years. Avoiding gluten is key...this is the other part of the equation. Incidentally, since gluten affects her nervous system, I think it has affected her motility, hence the SIBO.  So, diet is important and kids are difficult. Avoiding most grains is important since they are super high in fermentable carbs. BUT, there are some grains that are lower in fermentable carbs that help:  Jasmine Rice (cook in water like pasta and drain. Do not use left over because cooling causes resistant starches to form and that is aweful for SIBO).  Also mashed Red Potatoes (soak in salt water for 30 minutes to get most starch out, then rinse well, boil, drain, mash.  Again don't cool and reheat because of resistant starch). I have a terrific biscuit recipe and tortilla/flat bread recipe that I can post too.
