Music With Muscles in Old Spice Video

Help Terry Crews play music with his muscles in Old Spice video. TODAY 

 

Terry Crews — former NFL player, "Expendables" star and totally ripped Old Spice pitchman — plays music using his muscles — yes, his muscles — in his latest ad for the men's aftershave on Vimeo that has been played more than 1.7 million times in the last two days.

Not only does Crews use his muscles to trigger various instruments, but after the ad is over, viewers can use their own keyboards to control Crews' muscles and make their own "muscle-powered musical creations." (Hint: Press your "a" key -- it makes sausages!)

Hard Boil Eggs in the Oven

How To Hard Boil Eggs In The Oven. Huffington Post

 

Next time you want to hard boil eggs, don't start a pot of water to boil. Instead, turn on the oven. Even though the name of these eggs suggests that they should be boiled, it's so much easier -- and some say better -- when baked.

While you could go through the challenge of poking a pin hole into each egg to get it perfectly hard boiled, wouldn't you rather use Alton Brown's much simpler method? Sure, it takes longer to make boiled eggs in the oven, a whole 30 minutes vs. the nine when boiled, but there are perks to this hands-off method. When baked, hard boiled eggs have a creamier texture. Some say that they're even easier to peel.

But the real appeal of baking eggs rather than boiling them is when you need to make a large amount -- like when feeding a big crowd. It's so much easier to cook two or three dozen on an oven rack than in a huge pot of boiling water.

Heart Healthy Valentine's Day and Brownies Recipe!
Feb 12 2010

Heart Healthy Valentine's Day and Brownies Recipe!

Heart Healthy Valentines February is National Heart Month, so let’s be good to our hearts this Valentine’s day.

Gluten Free Chocolate Raspberry Brownies 139 calories, 25 g Carbs, 3 g Protein, 5 g fat (per 3 oz. brownie!!) Get the recipe by clicking this link!

http://www.christineavanti.com/Recipe16.php

Christine’s suggestions for a Heart Healthy Valentine’s Day Dinner

1) Lean protein such as grilled beef tenderloin (the leanest cut of beef).

2) Quinoa with artichoke hearts and fresh parsley. Quinoa is a staple of the ancient Incas and means “the mother grain”. It’s high in iron and loaded with fiber (4 gm per ½ cup).

3) A small glass of seltzer water with a splash of pomegranate juice and twist of lime. This is better for you than diet soda or champagne and much more romantic looking to the eye when poured into a wine or champagne glass.

4) Chocolate raspberry brownies. These are my newest creation and are beyond blissful…they are chewy, gooey, chocolately with a unique burst of tart raspberry…so unique and heart healthy.

For our anniversary one year my husband wrote a song for me as a gift and I love the song to this day.  Even though it wasn't for Valentines Day it was a romantic thing to do.  He dosen't think that his singing voice is good (I do) but I guess that I think whatever he does is good.  What I'm trying to say is even if you can't sing write out your feelings for the one you love and and try to put them to music by using a guitar or even just back-ground music from any song. I still the song Rob wrote for me 20+years ago.  You don't have to be a song writer or a good singer to tell someone how much you love them in a song.
