So You Think You Can Dance

Without a doubt, my favorite summer reality television show is So You Think You Can Dance (SYTCYD). Aired on Fox (which is channel 29 on our Directtv), this is like American Idol for dancers. There are the open auditions at the beginning of the season, then the next round in Las Vegas that puts the dancers through a rigorous week of challenging routines, and then the choosing of the finalists. This year, SYTYCD changed things up by only picking out five gal finalists and six guys (rather than the usual ten and ten). Also new this year is the presence of some All-Stars; these are twelve dancers who were contestants in the past and were fan favorites. How awesome it is to see Twitch, Mark, Neil and Ade each week this year! This new format where the finalists from Vegas are paired with the All Stars was a little iffy at first but seems to be working; it’s certainly entertaining. There’s also a wide variety of routines the dancers are asked to do from hip-hop and crump to salsa, jazz and Bollywood. This really is a show for everyone.

Online Shopping Revolutionized

I found this post that I copied and pasted below (in quotes” that I had written back in March of 2009. I have to laugh at the way I sound being so thrilled with the benefits of online shopping. Eight years ago many of us were just beginning to learn our way around the Internet and starting to take advantage of the knowledge that is now available with just a few key strokes . Knowledge certainly is power.

So not only can we find information about the companies that are still working in the old brick and mortar stores, like finding what our local guitarcenter hours are at their various stores located all across the country, as well as being able to stay put and do that shopping without even leaving the house. Using the Internet for all that it has to offer these days.

“Online shopping is definitely going strong these days, people are doing all that they can to save their money in every way possible. The Internet makes it so you don’t have to leave the house, so there is no need to pay the high prices for gas to go running all over town with. Not having to deal with parking issues and grumpy sales associates is a major plus also.
Many of the shopping sites only list stores that have paid them to put their link on them, while ShopWiki has all of the stores listed for your use in reviewing and purchasing numerous items online.
With golf season fast approaching I have found the need for a new pair of golf shoes, so I’ve been spending some time looking around and comparing prices and styles from various merchants, wanting a good looking and good quality foot wear for the sport, but not wanting to pay the high prices that I had seen at the mall the other week when I had the misfortune of spending a few hours there with a friend. So ShopWiki has made the task so very much easier with the way that they have revolutionized online shopping.”

The Slurpee

I was speaking the other day about the amount of 7-11 stores that are seeming to take over. I remember a song back in the 70’s that came out about the Slurpee. I thought that I might be able to find it on YouTube.com, but to no avail I couldn’t find it. This is the first time that I have not been able to find a song on YouTube.com, bummer. But I did find a funny video that I wanted to share here.

Myrtle Beach – It's All Good

I hear that people that want to go to the beach have found themselves in dire straights due to BP’s issues with their oil crisis and that the Myrtle Beach best hotels are booking up very quickly. The east coast is such a mess so I’m glad that at least Myrtle Beach is now thriving. I have always enjoyed North Myrtle Beach to visit and get some nice golf games in when I’m there enjoying all that the beach has to offer.

At this point I would definitely utilize the Internet to find a Myrtle Beach hotel that has vacancies for this season. A great website to use is http://www.horizonmyrtlebeach.com/default-en.html, I have used it in the past and it has always been a great resource for my needs and wants. I’ve been going to Myrtle Beach since I was a kid. My family got us kids into golf at very young ages and we always had a blast on family vacations when it came to having water activities and golf.

I’m glad that Myrtle Beach is now getting some hard core visitors, they have been advertising very heavily these past couple of years since people have been cutting down on their expenses, thanks to our government and the economic issues that have impacted so many of us.

Oakley Sunglasses

Having one good quality pair of sunglasses and several pair of cheap ones is the way to go. I have a habit of losing my sunglasses and get tired of dishing out my hard earned money each time I miss place those suckers. I have been purchasing Oakley sunglasses for a long time and wouldn’t even consider owning another brand. Oakley is a good company that is known to sell top notch eye wear and they stand by their products.

I’m glad to see that you can now go online at heavyglare.com/oakley-sunglasses and purchase their products (along with other brands as well) instead of having to go down to the local mall and pay out the nose for a decent pair of sunglasses. I’m glad to see that they now offer digital prescription lenses, which is way cool for folks that need that type of eye wear. It’s an easy site to get around in and they have a huge variety to choose from. You can check out the testimonials and see for yourself what they are all about.

The only good thing about going to mall is that there is usually a nice looking girl behind the counter that makes the process easier to deal with. But I still prefer to do my shopping online if I have the opportunity to.
