Does Steve really show up in iron man noir?

no, unfortunately he doesn’t! putting him in noir was the genius idea of a select few very talented authors and artists. if you go through my noir tag you’ll be able to find recs for some amazing fics in there.

Hello again.

I wrote to you a lot a while back about advice for my munchkin with her turn out etc, I just thought I’d let you know how much she’s progressed. She’s almost seven now and joined an associates programme, been selected for gifted and talented at her dance school and just recently did a show where she was the youngest and only one chosen from her ballet class to perform with the older girls on pointe… She wasn’t on pointe naturally, but she has been working super hard. She’s studied her grade 1 barre work so much that her teacher is now adding grade 2 steps into her private classes. The dream for her is still very much alive. I want to say a thank you for your advice and also I still use the pictures you post as inspiration for her.

I also thought I’d let you know, my son who has ASD has also just started ballet, he’s the cutest 5 year old in a leotard I’ve ever seen. His teacher said his turn out is great and he loves to jete haha!!

I hope all is well with you.

AMERICA’S GOT TALENT-JUDGE CUTS #2 RECAP

Tuesday night was the 2nd night of Judge Cuts on season 10 of America’s Got Talent. 20 more acts performed for the judges, and 7 of them are headed to Radio City. This week’s guest judge was singer Michael Buble, who I do not like. Let’s hope he’s a better guest judge than Barney Stinson was. On with the show!

Aiden Sinclair-He passed a deck of cards to the judges and asked them to randomly pick a card. Howie tossed it back and missed, so Aiden asked them to put their hands up and put them down if he said their card. He got all 5, which was quite impressive. I think he has a really strong chance of making it through.

Next we see a montage of nervous singer Jenna Ranae singing “Can’t Help Falling in Love”, who I don’t think we’ve seen. She’s got a good voice though.

Shirley Claire-I’m not sure what she sang, but I wasn’t overly impressed by it. She’s an adorable lady with a lot of personality, but her singing really isn’t anything to write home about.

Daniella Mass-She sang “Don’t Cry for Me, Argentina” and it was good but it felt really restricted. I get that she was nervous, but I could tell she was holding back. It was good and the judges loved it, but I wasn’t overly impressed.

Ira Fennelbloom-This dang puppet is back again. This time, his mom accompanied him on bass guitar. Oh and dude, you can’t win Mel B’s heart, she’s married! He sang “Let’s Get it On”, which just creeped me out so much!! He sang it okay, but the song choice was just enough to knock me out of it. His mom told him that “getting it on” means getting ice cream.

Benjamin Yonatton-He’s lost some vision since his last audition, gone from 4-7 degrees down to 2-5 degrees, which is very sad. He’ll be completely blind fairly soon, which is even sadder. He did a good job this time once again, and he has probably the saddest story of the season. I figured he was a lock for the live shows anyway.

Uzeyer-He did the ladder thing again, but stands right at the top while it’s wobbling away. Like I was seriously scared for him. I think he could go through, but people will get bored with him.

Next we see a montage of singer Ryan Shaw singing “I Can’t Make You Love Me”

Craiglewis Band-They sang “I’m Going Down” which is verging on overdone on these shows. They decided to actually sing more like a duet this time, and it was okay but I still don’t like their voices and I thought the harmonies needed to be be a lot tighter. It was okay, but once again, I didn’t love it. Michael must have loved it though, because he hit the Golden Buzzer for these two so they’re off to the live shows.

Dr. Danger’s Daredevil All Stars-I was wondering how they were going to top their audition terrifying auditions, but they decided to go small this time around. The little one jumped a ramp on a motorcycle, not scary at all. Howie and Howard both buzzed him, and then he rode right into a flaming fence and had to be put out!! He was okay, but I didn’t love it.

Next we see a montages of dance acts. Center Stage, whose audition wasn’t shown. The other dance acts backstage seemed impressed. We also see a montage of Daditude!, whose audition was shown but I’m guessing we won’t see them in the lives.

DM Nation-They danced to Lorde’s version of “Everybody Wants to Rule the World”, and it was really good!! I loved their auditions, and I liked this dance too. High energy, strong, and they danced really well!!! They’re easily a favorite of mine and I will be devastated if they don’t advance.

The Chippendoubles-This is the first time we’ve seen them, and I figured it would be the last. They came out in black robes and masks looking like the Grim Reaper, and then stripped down to reveal powerful women. It was really a waste of time, and they got 4 X’s so it is the last time we’ll see them (thank God).

Chris Jones-Instead of hypnotizing Howie this time, he decided to hypnotize Mel and Michael, or at least attempt to. Neither of them fell for it, and Howie hit his buzzer. It was really a waste of time, I can’t believe the other 3 didn’t buzz him too.

Scott Heierman-The bearded drag queen comedian came out dressed a bit more casually this time around but still cute. At one point, he forgot his routine and broke down. That was really a hard thing to watch. Howard felt sympathy, but Michael did not. I kinda side with him because every performer has off-days, but he kinda cracked under the pressure so that probably ruined his chance.

Selected of God Choir-This time around, they sang “Survivor” by Destiny’s Child, and I liked it better than their audition. They got to show a bit more swag and it was a song that actually calls for it. The soloist sounded great, the choir was great, and I really hope these guys make it.

The 7 acts making it through to the live shows are…

  • Craiglewis Band (Michael’s Golden Buzzer)
  • DM Nation (YAY!!!)
  • Benjamin Yonatton
  • Uzeyer
  • Daniella Mass
  • Ira Fennelbloom (are you freaking kidding me?!)
  • Selected of God Choir

I would have switched out Ira for Aiden, but whatever. He won’t make it past the first live show anyway. So that’s it for the 2nd week of Judge Cuts. Judges cuts continue next week, and the guest judge is Marlon Wayans.

“I’ve been working as a creative director for two years now. I conceptualize, create campaigns and select talents for photo shoots.  I love working behind the camera. I do everything from scratch and I’m very hands on with my team. At the end of the day, it’s all worth the hustle. To God be the glory.”

“Honestly, I don’t consider myself  ‘stylish’. I just wear whatever I want. Okay, thiziz howitiz.
Black is my go-to color. I wear over-sized shirts, leggings and a pair of sneakers on a daily basis. I can’t recall the last time I wore a dress. The motto: ‘Always cozy, never girly’.”

my wand is larch and phoenix, 10 inches, supple :) thank you!

Hmm. Larch is a wand known for selecting those of unexpected talents, which matches well with the Phoenix Feather core. However the length and flexibility suggest someone not yet sure of themselves, to a much greater degree than most mid-range wands (those around 11-12″). Overall this would be the wand of someone who has much personal development still open to them,but still capable of great and interesting things, when they have the strength and confidence. However they may well not always have this, and thus find themselves not living up to their wand wood and wand cores usually interpretations, which may only serve to bring them down.

Support Local Economy, Heat Wave, & Cinnamon Ice Cream

I love farmers market season because vendors from all across the state come together during the weekends to advertise, and help support the local economy and business community. Not forgetting it creates a connection between the community and local business people as well. Currently, West Virginia ranks at #14 in the US for local food. The local farmers markets in my area provide a diverse and talented selection of farmers and craftspeople every weekend from May through October. 

Aside from fresh fruits and vegetables, there is so much more available from free range eggs; homemade butter, cheese, honey, and preserves; teas, spices, and lavender sachets; craft items like scarves, pottery, and jewelry; all natural home and body products such as body butter, salve, and linen spray; gourmet cupcakes and homemade ice cream; no antibiotics, steroids, or growth hormone meat selections. Even a local menu with all fresh ingredients, activities for the kids to learn about produce and healthy eating, and bands playing throughout the day. Oh, and outdoor yoga!

The prices are all fairly reasonable, which is ideal for those who are looking to save money, and stock up on produce for the entire week. Despite the rise in temperature, people were anticipating Market Day, and there was a great crowd ready to see what vendors were out today. The atmosphere is always energetic and vibrant. 

I managed to purchase a weeks worth of produce for around $40, which is remarkable considering if I bought it in the supermarket, it would have cost a lot more because the price of product, on top of sales tax. A majority of my meal plan consists of fruits and vegetables, and this is why local farmers are my go-to. I picked up kale, radishes, cucumbers, bell peppers, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, sugar snap peas, red potatoes, zucchini, garlic, squash, tomatoes, onions, green beans, free range eggs, and gluten-free rosemary-olive oil artisan bread.

I watched The Help when I came home, even though I wanted to wait until I read the novel first. I know the book was released in 2009, and movie adaption premiered in 2011, so I am quite late, but it was brilliant with an excellent cast. As much as I loved the movie, now I have to get my hands on a copy of the book because I can only imagine just how exceptional it will be in written format. Go Set a Watchman by Harper Lee is the novel I am patiently waiting for on my library’s eBook system. I have read numerous reviews, and while there are a range of emotions on characters development, and premise, it is a novel that I have been anticipating for a while now.

It’s six o’clock, the aroma of dinner is filling the household as it cooks, and I am reading A Darker Shade of Magic by V. E. Schwab because I officially have a copy in my hands, and An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir as well. Both novels have taken the booklr community by storm, and I can finally read them. I’ll be diving into Ben & Jerry’s ‘Spectacular Speculoos’ later tonight because it is scrumptious. I could not quite place the flavors besides the caramel ice cream, and thought it was pumpkin. After checking the website, it is actually cinnamon! I didn’t think cinnamon ice cream could taste so good. It reminds me of Fall in the flavors aspect, so I am hoping the combo is here to stay.

Regardless of the week being overwhelming, this weekend is pleasant so far. Paprika chicken & spinach with white wine butter thyme sauce is what’s cooking for dinner. A movie night is planned with The Pact 2, Serena, and The Houses October Built. Another Market Day tomorrow in another town, and outdoor yoga will follow.
