Change is coming…to your food labels!

February 25, 2010

No, not the kind you read at the stores, or perhaps ignore. Restaurants will soon be required to label all of their menu items with basic nutrition information. It’s a movement to help people become more aware of the excessive indulgence that can occur with eating out. Granted, I realize that we all go out […]

Crazy Heart with Ryan Bingham featuring Jeff Bridges

February 9, 2010

I realize it’s not really Ryan and the boy’s movie, but I went to see it because of them!  The raspy, sexy voice of Ryan Bingham just launched on to the big screen in the movie Crazy Heart.  Crazy Heart portrays a burned out, drunken country singer (Jeff Bridges as Bad Blake). The story begins […]

Is there a link between diet and performance?

February 8, 2010

Food for thought Do you think there is a link between your diet and… Arthritis? Vocal issues like GERD? Use of marijuana? Alcohol use? Stage hydration? Eating on the road? Sleep disturbances? There is. Think of how much better your performance could be with making subtle changes to your health by eating better. I hope […]

New Favorite Website

January 31, 2010

Since I can only be in Texas “part-time” I try to get my fill of Live Texas Country Music whenever I can and just about anywhere I can go!  Yes, desperation tends to set in for me.  I end up checking Myspace accounts, Facebook accounts, band websites, iLike, etc. to find who is playing and […]

January 10, 2010

Now that I can get back to blogging it’s time finish up the recaps!  It is really a challenge to find time to sit down at the computer and type away when you know all the fun that can be had down at the tent or on the slopes!  So, after the fabulous show under […]

Day 3 Updates from Steamboat Springs

January 7, 2010

Another day gone by…and wow was it a fabulous one! First off, the slopes were POWDER! We headed up to the top and down the right side of the mountain on some great blue runs.  There were very few folks on that side which made it nice. I’m not sure if it was the weather […]
