American Idol discussion on Entertainment Board (nm)
It's the chat board version of a smile

:D is a wide open smile.  :) is a regular smile.

Yea - someone agrees with me
I have thought that more times than not.  Again contracts might be important to some but to me they are not.  Had them when I first started, agreement/contract and found that either side could still quit due to "cause" or "no cause", non payment could still cause  you go to court with or without a contract and it was simpler without.   I pick up the dictation, do the work, return it in my timely manner, invoice once a month, they pay within 3 days and that goes on for now 18 years with some accounts.   But to pay all money for things I can do, advertising, mailings, writing of agreements if that is what you want even before you land the account -- cannot see it.   But again to each their own.  
As an IC you are in business for yourself - you are your own company. This has responsibility- Think about it - if the people you worked for closed their office and had no coverage to dispense work, you would be out of work for a week -you do the work for them so you need to have coverage - it is the professional thing to do - and shows them you handle your business well.

Another item that I notice so often on this board - very very often - is the conversation about specific pay rates - most I feel are exaggerated, and I find it unprofessional to talk about any salary - but you also leave open the possibility of others underbidding you on your projects etc. I think keeping what you earn to an approximation is more professional. I have to tell you that I have gotten many private clients telling me they check the boards 0- this and others for what they should be paying and when I go just a point or 1/2 point lower they think it is great. So if you all want to continue - be my guest, but you open up a can of worms with potential clients. I do not know of any other business that would give up their rates to the open market so freely.
yeah, someone agrees on consultant!!
Thanks for the vote!  I just can't believe people can be so rude.  Thanks for the advice and,oh, I am a woman.  I thought the sensitivity would have given it away! LOL
I believe the world agrees that you don't need kids. You probably can't have any. Yeahhhhhhh
Here are rules from grammarbook.com and it agrees with BOS on the caps with apostrophe
Rule 8 The plurals for capital letters and numbers used as nouns are not formed with apostrophes.

She consulted with three M.D.s.
She went to three M.D.s' offices.
The apostrophe is needed here to show plural possessive.
She learned her ABCs.
the 1990s not the 1990's
the '90s or the mid-'70s not the '90's or the mid-'70's
She learned her times tables for 6s and 7s.

Exception: If the apostrophe is needed to avoid confusion, use it and be consistent within a sentence.

Example: Her 0's and 6's looked similar.

I love Paula!!!! nm

hey, do you like Paula Dean?
I LOVE HER!!! She makes everything look SOooo delish! And, of course, the more fattening the better. I've tried quite a few of her recipes and never been disappointed. I would love to visit her restaurant one day.
Paula Deen
I love watching her shows. Recently, she made a red velvet cake that I cannot wait to try (although it will probably be Christmas before I get around to it). My mom used to make red velvet cakes a lot when I was a child because my dad loved them. She would usually make them in December, either for Christmas or my dad's birthday, which was also in December. However, I've never seen anything like Paula Deen's version. She put pecans, marshmellows and cocconut in the icing--it was absouletely beautiful! P.S. I checked out that link....thanks!
Great site, Paula!
Thank you for sharing!
As Paula would say, Taylor is infectious!!
Yup, and Paula is no longer clapping like
Thankfully on both!
I think Kevin is truly in denial! Paula has said too much!
Me too and I got it wrong, Paula Deen. nm
I have to know....how whas Paula Deen's

I agree, paula looks drugged out 24/7...sm

she admits she is on *pain medications due to back problems* but it's ridiculous while she is on American Idol...she becomes sloppy, falls all over either Simon or Randy and then gushes over ALL the contestants.....I *heard* that when her contract is over, they are thinking of asking Cher to take Paula's place, and that would be so refreshing. 

Personally, I am more sick of Paula Abdul on this show than Simon Cowell. 

Paula's behavior gets stranger . . .
every week. I think she has serious problems. She can hardly get out a coherent sentence anymore.
Recipe by Paula Dean. LQQK
1 pound ground beef
1 teaspoon House Seasoning (garlic powder, black pepper, and salt mix)
1 medium onion, chopped
1 medium bell pepper, chopped
1 cup grated Cheddar
2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
1/2 cup sour cream
1 cup crushed crackers (recommended: Ritz)
1 teaspoon seasoned salt (recommended: Lawry's)
2 slices white bread
Sauce, recipe follows

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Mix all ingredients together, except the bread slices and Sauce. Shape into a loaf. Line a 1 1/2-quart loaf pan with the bread slices. Place meatloaf on top. Bake loaf for 45 minutes. The bread absorbs the grease and should be discarded after loaf is removed from oven.

1 (10 3/4-ounce) can condensed cream of mushroom soup
1 cup milk
1 1/2 cups grated Cheddar
Chopped onions, optional
1 bunch fresh parsley leaves, chopped, optional

Heat the soup and milk over medium heat; add the cheese. Add the chopped onions and parsley to the sauce, if desired. Pour Sauce over the meatloaf or pass at the table.

RE: I think they should send Paula home - she is so annoying........
Paula Deen's Chicken with Wine Sauce. nm
Paula just signed a 3 year contract with AI. I can't believe they want her back. She really get
Paula Deen is fabulous! I love her recipes and
the way she ooohs and ahhhs when she takes a bite of one of her dishes.  Makes you just wish YOU were the one taking that bite!  See the HomeTalkCafe cooking forum for some fun.  http://www.hometalkcafe.com or click the link below.
I am trying Paula's banana/ham casserole tonight. Will let ya'll know how it turns out...nm
I love almost all of Paula's recipes, but the scrambled eggs & oyster porch
Idol top 12
Bo seemed very happy. I think he had been careful to look cool while he was a contestant, but last night he could just have fun and not worry about a cool image. I don't think Ayla is snotty, but she's not as good as Katharine, and she also has her basketball to concentrate on. I think Melissa was shocked that she snuck through. And Kevin was blown away that he made it. I'm glad he did. He has a wonderful voice, though the music he chooses isn't exactly pop idol material, so he's not the total package. Will and Gideon leaving was okay with me. I figured Ace would make it through, though I don't enjoy him.

Now there are only one or two guys and one or two girls I won't mind getting the boot, though in the end I think the winner will be Chris or Elliott or Lisa or Katharine. I think Lisa is holding back to wow everybody at the end.

Okay, I guess I'm one of the few who have never watched this show!  However, i just had a doctor dictating, said "Katherine McVeigh is gonna do well only cause she is so bloomin' good looking.  She cannot sing worth a hoot".    I cracked up!


Idol Fan
I think Chris was just as shocked that "Cat" of all people beat him out! She has always been my least favorite! My favorite has always been Mr. Soul Patrol!! Of course you have to love Elliott too! Chris will be fine and probably have a record deal very soon.
Idol Nothing New
Unfortunately, I think the show is "fixed" every year. They latch on to a particular contestant and you can just see how much they favor that one person. It happened last year with Carrie. A few days before the finale, an article was posted on the internet from a newspaper that said when speaking about Carrie, "the winner of American Idol" even though the final show hadn't aired yet. Needless to say a day later the article disappeared
I think Katherine is great if she sings the right song.
American Idol
I missed the first 6 minutes.  What did I miss???
American Idol

I think, BY FAR, the guys are better this year. Of course, I thought that last year too...Bo was robbed!

Anyway, I just love Taylor...there's just something about him that is genuine and warm, I don't know, I hope he wins! 

What are your thoughts? Who's outta there tonight? I think either Kevin or Will...sorry to say, cause they're both cuties!

As for the girls,  eehh...who cares? They just aren't...as Randy says...bringing it this year...nuff about them.

Ace is hot , Chris is just plain good ...but Taylor's still my pick!

American Idol
Taylor is something else - but so is Chris - he sang "Broken" like he really felt it last night. I am for either of them winning - as for the girls - Mandisa has it handsdown.
American Idol...sm

Ok, last night's show...

First, I can't believe that Kevin dodged the bullet and got into the top 12...but I'm glad, he seems like such a sweet kid.  Kinda figured Will would go, but I liked Gedeon too.

I'm glad Ayla (sp?) got the boot, didn't like her.  She was snotty!   Kinnik was nothing special either, so guess she had to go too.

As for Bo's performance, I don't know...he seemed kinda off or something.

Now it gets good...the top 12...who's your pick to win?  Mine's Taylor...or maybe Chris!

This weeks Idol
Hi all!  What are your thoughts on last nights performances?  I thought Kelly was just absolutely awful.  Although, Katherine should be thanking her lucky stars that Kelly was as bad as she was, otherwise, I am sure that she would be getting the boot tonight.  I thought that Elliot was the best by far last night.  Chris is my second place.  Taylor and Paris both did a good job. My final three are still Elliot, Chris, and Taylor. 
I agree with your Idol Fan!
Kelli has been needing to go home for weeks now, luckily Bucky was worse than her.  Elliott is also my favorite, has been since Day 1.  And Chris is also my second favorite.  Although I don't think Taylor has as strong as a voice as some of the others I absolultely love him!  That show won't be the same without him!  Hopefully Kelli goes home tonight!!!!  I'm SO over her blond attitude!  Elliott all the way!!!!
Idol this week
Elliott seems genuinely goofy.  I'd like to see the guys perform a female artist's songs after Katharine was required to perform Elvis songs with all the guys.
American Idol

There are only three left now.  Who will be the winner? amj

Dial Idol
It's at www.dialidol.com.  It's free to download.  I have high speed internet on my laptop but also have the regular old phone line modem.  It was so easy.  I just downloaded the program.  Plugged in the cord from the phone.  It pretty much configured itself.  Then when the show was over, I opened up the program.  This last week, they only did two lines for each contestant instead of three.  You don't have to put in the phone numbers or anything.  You just select where you want your votes to go.  You can split them if you want...but being you are Soul Patrol (Whoooo!) I don't think you will :)    It does all of the dialing and redialing for you after that. I just walked away but came back to check on how it was doing.  It also tracks who, according to it, is ahead based on number of calls, percentage of busy signals, etc.  It's been about 85% accurate, and Taylor has been on top every week.
Idol Tickets
Dress up like a major fan with Idol T-shirt and other accessories and stand in front of local supermarket with a karaoke machine singing some famous Idol songs, "I believe", "A moment like this"! Oh, c'mon, that would be good! lol
Any American Idol Fans out there ?
Brenna - American Idol
I was also very happy to see Brenna get voted off and the crap she said about making her own record.  She sucked! 
American Idol tonight!!
American Idol Results.....SOON

The results are in............who is leaving American Idol tonight?  We will know in about 30 minutes from now.  My feeling is that either Kevin or Kellie are going home tonight......I like Kellie, but she really doesn't have the voice like the others, and Kevin, well, he speaks for himself - CHICKEN LITTLE - LOLOLOLOL!

I see it coming down to Chris and Kathryn!!!!!!!!

American Idol--who are your favs?

 Mine are:

  1. Taylor (he just makes me happy)

  2. Mandisa (love her)

  3. Chris (he is awesome)

  4. Paris (so spunky)

  5. Katherine (so talented and controlled)


American Idol last night
How did everyone think it went last night?  I was again disappointed by some of my favorites.  I just love Mandisa and Taylor, yet they were not up to snuff at all last night.
American Idol Tour
Has anyone here ever gone to any of the tour shows? 
american idol tour

Do Simon, Paula, Randy and Ryan go on the tour or is it just the idols?

I missed American Idol tonight.
Wow. So Sad!!! I am not an Idol fan at all. In fact, hardly ever watch it. But a few weeks ago sm

I watched Mandisa (?) sing an awesome Christian song THAT I LOVE!!! I thought she knocked it out of the park. Of course, being a secular show, Simon detested it as it probably convicted him to no end........


I wanted to actually vote for the first time since idol aired, but I just didn't that night.  I should have.  She was voted off (so I hear) because she sang a Christian song?


Sounds to me like it's the best thing that happened to her.  Must be God's way of telling her no to be an artist in the secular world.  I hope she gets a Christian label because I will be the first in line to buy her music. 


No flames please. Unless you are a Christian, you will NOT get my post.
