The open slot on the judges table at the Fox reality show, X factor, has a very interested party in the person of LeAnn Rimes. The popular singer says that she is interested in being a judge on the show and that her “people” have contacted their “people” to inquire about the possibility. In fact, Ms. Rimes said that she has met with the co-producer of the show FremantleMedia North America to discuss this opening as well as other spots that might suit her. Simon Cowell, the incorrigible Brit that runs X Factor has been looking for judges to replace Paula Abdul and Nicole Scherzinger before the second season of the show begins and rumor has it that he is looking for two female judges only. Ms. Rimes would seem to fit the bill very nicely but Cowell has been known to dance to the beat of his own drum when it comes to the show so it remains to be seen if he and music producer L. A. Reid will offer her the position on the X Factor judges panel.
Media types following the story say that Ms. Rimes would bring a few positives to the show, including a background in country music, which remains one of the most popular TV type of music in America. She also has experience with these types of shows having been a finalist at the age of eight on Star Search in 1991. And while she also has other less attractive issues that will follow her, including weight issues and her marriage to Eddie Cibrian, these things are also seen as being a good source of attention-getting headlines for the show.
Prior to her death last week, Whitney Houston is said to have been considered for the open spot by Simon Cowell. Other names circulating for the open judges spot on X Factor are UK Factor star Kelly Rowland, who recently quit her position in the UK version of the show to pursue her solo singing career in the U.S. Vanessa Hudgens and Britney Spears have also been mentioned for the open X Factor judging spot.
I’d like to say that I care or that I actually even know who LeAnn Rimes really is, but I’d be lying. Perhaps I’ll go to You Tube and check out some of her music but I have a feeling that shortly after doing so I will probably have to run for the safety of my Tom Waits music collection and just sit back and imagine what a fantastic judge he would be for the show.
Expanding Community Sports Options
The dusty field that kids use for playing baseball is often a place filled with great memories when those kids grow up but in an increasingly urban world it is becoming important for kids to play in safe environments and this often means having facilities built in such a way that they can accommodate all ages of play. This usually entails the installation of various safety options such as equipment that can be used by any child for safety padding, field padding to make sure the exterior of the field is made safe and a well-lit area for times when it gets dark early.
Tipping a Boat Crew
When going on a cruise or a water based trip, one item that some people might not realize is polite and standard within the world of Brooklyn cruises is the idea that the boat crew should be tipped after the journey is concluded and this might happen in a few different ways. One method is for the buyer to give a particular amount in one lump sum to the captain who will then distribute the tips amongst the staff. Another method is the use of envelopes for each member of the crew which can be filled individually.
Old Fashioned Party
One fun type of party that a person can plan for their friends is an old fashioned one where the decor and the food is something out of a 1950s cocktail party. Many party planning suggestions these days will offer up some great modern foods, but if a person wants to get some really great ideas for old fashioned dinner options, some of the great types of food that would look somewhat hilarious today but would be completely normal back then might be donuts, a bagel and lox platter and even small sandwiches with the crusts cut off.
Rainy Areas and Kids
When a place that has a lot of kids at it is otherwise in an area where a lot of rain happens on a regular basis, it can be difficult to figure out the best place to put some commercial playground equipment so that the kids will get to play on it often and they won’t otherwise be forced to stay inside and stare at the equipment without getting to enjoy it. There are a number of options for indoor play equipment and equipment that’s under a canopy or other outdoor structure that has a roof over it where kids would be able to play no matter the weather.
Creation of Cotton Thread
When utilizing cotton thread for a quilt, it can help to know the manufacturing process for such an addition as it is one of the most popular types of thread to use within quilting fabric these days. For the most part, a piece of cotton thread was originally crafted from the spinning of the fibers of the cotton together after which a rather thin piece of yarn would be twisted away from the bunch of cotton. Sometimes a few cotton threads are twisted together to make stronger thread which will usually be thicker as well for quilting.
History of Sports Betting
While most people associate colonial America with the Constitution, the Declaration of Independence and the Revolutionary War, one of the interesting things about life hundreds of years ago in America was the sports betting system that was already in place in many areas even before the founding fathers considered breaking off from Britain. Citizens would bet on many types of sports and events back then that included things like horse racing and fighting that was both arranged in official bouts and fights that simply broke out between some citizens in town. Gambling was common in England and the colonists brought it across the Atlantic.
Extra Bathrooms and Rentals
Many people tout the home-like atmosphere that someone can obtain for their family when they forgo the experience of a hotel in favor of staying in vacation home rentals that are great for larger families or people who want to spread out. And one of the greatest things about getting a vacation rental instead of staying in a hotel is that there are actually more bathrooms generally speaking as far as general rentals are concerned and this is often one of the best types of luxuries available to people as far as comfort during a stay is concerned.
Portraits or Not in Business
When a company seeks to have pictures taken of all its employees that aren’t otherwise just to be small photographs placed on identification tags, one decision to make with the Lake County Illinois corporate photographer is whether the photographs that are taken need to be a type of portrait or whether something less formal might be appropriate. In the case of something like a law firm, the best types of photographs will probably be formal portraits whereas a less formal business where employees don’t usually wear suits to work might have a much more casual style of photographs.
Easy Trading of Games
For a long time one of the only ways to play games that a person couldn’t otherwise trade for was through the act of going to a video store and paying to rent the game for a few days, but these days it’s possible to actually own the game for a little while and longer for just a few days by engaging in some sites that seek to allow people to trade video games. No longer is it required that someone show up at their video store right when it opens to try and get the first crack at a rare game.
