  • Ugh. Thanks Justin...really.

    Posted by Jessie B Hawkins

    Thanks to the Big Deals blog post about how far you'd have to walk to lose what you gained from eating Thanksgiving dinner... Here's what it had to say for me and my consumption.

    one glass of wine, one cup of coffee with cream and sugar, celery with dip, half a cup of raw veggies, one ounce of tortilla chips, six ounces of white and dark turkey, half a cup of stuffing, half a cup of mashed potatoes, half a cup of gravy, a dinner roll, a pat of butter, an open face turkey sandwhich for left overs equals:  1655 calories.  (Keep in mind I'm going just off their measurements...I'm pretty sure I had way more than six ounces of turkey, three times a half a cup of mashed potatoes and gravy, but their estimate looks better than my actual!) I think if I tallied it honestly I would have consumed about 3,545 calories.  How many calories are in a pound you ask?  3500.  So I banked 545 calories over a pound LOL

    Ok...now time to hit the treadmil!

  • PLease Little Debbie...don't ever disappear like Hostess!

    TWINKIES: Are They Gone Forever?

     

    With the closure of Hostess Brands, such snack-time favorites as Twinkies, cupcakes, Ho-Hos, Suzy Q's, Donettes and Ding Dongs will be disappearing from store shelves. 

    But probably not for long! Though the Hostess Company has closed, it is actually going to be liquidated, with the recipes and trademarks for its popular products being sold to another company that will revive them before long. So no need to stress, we'll get those nummy yummy twinkies back. 

    Here are a few fun facts about Twinkies:

    • The Twinkie was invented in 1930.
    • The bottom of a Twinkie is actually the top during baking.
    • Twinkies cannot last 25 years. The shelf life is actually less than a month.
    • The original filling was banana creme. It was changed during World War Two due to banana rationing.

     

    Did you even care that Hostess and their snacks were going to be missing from store shelves?  I honestly wouldn't have noticed...I'm more of a Litte Debbies fan.  LOVE their swiss cake rolls!

  • Kenny announces dates for his 2013 No Shoes Nation Tour

    Posted by Jessie B Hawkins

    Kenny Chesney announced the 17 stadium dates for the 2013 No Shoes Nation Tour lastThursday on NoShoesRadio.com.

    The trek kicks off on March 16th in Tampa, Florida with openers Eric Church, Eli Young Band and Kacey Musgraves. Zac Brown Band will sub for Eric in Atlanta, Minneapolis and Columbia, South Carolina. The tour wraps for a third consecutive year at Foxboro, Massachusetts’s Gillette Stadium on August 24th.

     

    Kenny Chesney talks about how he came up with the tour name.

     

    “I’ve been looking for ways to give my fan base a name and for everybody that’s bought a record and the people that have been coming to shows for awhile, but everybody has built No Shoes Nation. And that’s what we’re calling it because it is. It’s very special, and it’s a village of people that we have touring down the road. And but it’s really the fans. It’s the people that have given all of us a really wonderful, unique life.”

    Additional dates will be announced in the next few weeks. Tickets for all the stadium gigs go on sale Friday December 7th, and tickets for the June 8th stop in Philadelphia will be available on November 16th.
