Freshness Seal - or Contamination Invite?

Yesterday I opened up a box of tomato soup from Trader Joe's. I freaked upon seeing the inner seal was already broken...

I was about to toss it in the garbage when a Facebook friend alerted me to these "new" seals where the foil is broken as you twist off the lid. (Naturally I had neglected to read the writing on the label)

Convenient - YES. But also a contamination risk. What is to stop someone from breaking the seal and the buyer would never know ?

Seems like a very poor idea.

Several friends commented that they  had also encountered this on almond milk and other items. A couple had thrown them out not realizing.

Ridiculous engineering! I bet it has resulted in a lot of unnecessary waste.

Dirty Dancing Recap

The ABC Dirty Dancing special is now out on DVD (no I am not paid to promote it lol)

The review were not kind, but it was an incredibly fun production to be a very small part of. Here are a few screen caps.

The movie was filmed in the North Carolina mountains. The scenery was as magnificent as it looks! I may not have been very visible but I have some fun memories to treasure :)

Paleo Bread. Delish!

I made some delicious paleo bread today on recommendation from a friend. Very cake like. Light in texture. Yummy!

Here is the recipe if you are interested in baking some. Very quick and easy. *recipe credit:

Dirty Dancing "remake"

I was asked recently if my blog has now gone all business. Yes and No. I no longer post regularly here as a "personal blog." I have moved most of that to other social media sites.

The fact is that personal blog readership has gone the way of the horse and buggy.

Unless you are a huge giveaway blog, there is very little interest. Sad, but true.

Things were much different when I started almost 9 years ago.

I have been posting clips from some of the background work I have been doing lately, most of it to have mementos for myself and also because occasionally someone from the blog world recognizes me and emails me! This happened once and I was blown away as I had not yet posted about the show.

To that end, on Wednesday on ABC, a "remake" of Dirty Dancing will be airing at 8 pm. It was a pleasure to work on this set and you may catch a glimpse of me somewhere in the show. Not certain, of course.

The "remake" has already received a lot of negative press. Ignore the naysayers and watch it anyway!!  It is not meant to replace the classic movie. Just another take on it that I hope you will enjoy :)

If you want to look for me, here are the two wardrobe options I was fitted with. First, the cheeky STD outfit lol - complete with nerd glasses and polka dot shorts, and the more demure "going to brunch" floral outfit.

Thanks to all of you who have supported me in these various projects. I realize that it is "background" work and nothing more. Nevertheless, I am having fun with it :) and isn't that what life is about?

*obvs since I do not use my real name anywhere on the blog, this is not an attempt to build some huge "background" fan base lol

Tuesday, May 9, 2017 : A Review - and Discount! Check out the photo!

It is always fun to update your look with new glasses. In this case, my son, who I have written about since he was 12 (he is now 21!) is now wearing these new snazzy specs courtesy of

He was very much in need of a new pair of glasses especially with all the reading he is doing preparing to enter into his Senior year of University. Time flies!

These frames are honestly more attractive on him than the previous pairs he has purchased in-store. I think they are an excellent fit for his face. And to think it was all done online!

It is so easy now to order glasses online and it is generally a lot less expensive. A definite win-win. All I had to do was select the lenses and email his eyeglass prescription and pupillary measurement and within 10 days he had an awesome new pair of eyeglasses.

I encourage you to visit and try on a pair of glasses "virtually." It is fun and easy to do and can help you get an idea of which shapes work best with your face shape. As a special gift for my readers, use code GSHOT50 to save 50% for all eyeglasses and sunglasses, with the exception of sale frames. You will not be disappointed!!

Full Disclosure: I received a pair of eyeglasses for the purpose of this review. No other compensation was provided.
