DANCING WITH THE STARS SEASON 25, FALL 2017 DANCING WITH THE STARS SEASON 25, FALL 2017, WEEK 4 Dear DWTS Fans:  Thank you for enjoying our blog and for bearing with us until we could enter all of the latest signups into the database. Some weeks, we receive so many signups that we have a heck of a time getting caught up.  Again, thank you!   Welcome to Week 4 of Season 25, Dancing with the Stars!  Tom and Erin hosted. Carrie Ann Inaba (CAI), Len Goodman, and Bruno Tonioli judged.  It’s “Most-Memorable Year” Night, which usually brings truly vulnerable and heartfelt personal stories and performances from the celebrities.  This week will be vastly opposed to last week’s Guilty Pleasures Night, when a few celebs’ stories/performances, such as Frankie’s and Lindsey’s, were entertaining and appeared to be genuine, while a few others, such as Nick’s and Nikki’s and, worst of all, Sasha’s, really did not work. Here’s hoping for high quality across the board tonight!   THE FULL CAST! “Property Brothers’” real-estate expert Drew Scott & pro Emma Slater Retired NFL Receiver Terrell Owens & pro Cheryl Burke (2-Time MBT winner) Vanessa (Minillo) Lachey (Nick’s wife) & pro Maks Chmerkovskiy WWE Wrestler Nikki Bella & pro Artem Chigvintsev Actor/Singer/Dancer...

WRITING: ONE WORD, OR TWO? OR … September 19, 2017...

WRITING:  ONE WORD, OR TWO? OR …                   September 19, 2017 Clarity is everything in writing and in speaking. In person you have a chance to clear things up if what you said or asked didn’t quite make sense.  But, in writing you don’t have that luxury; you have to be clear up front.  Correct and sufficient punctuation can do much to help across the board, including to indicate whether two words should be together as one or should stay separated. Examples:  Decision maker            life long vs. lifelong    eyedrops vs. eye drops Tom is the decision maker.  Becoming an author has been her lifelong goal.  I need to use more eyedrops.  As she turns around, an eye drops into the bucket. A list of words that people often aren’t sure about–one word, or two—can be found at https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/901458.One_Word_Two_Words_Hyphenated and http://iws.collin.edu/dparker/tw_class_3211/proposals/Word-List.pdf   What’s a third option?  Hyphenation.  Two words that are working together as a compound adjective to describe a noun need a hyphen between them, without spaces. Unclear:  That face licking dog is cute. Is a face licking a dog? What’s happening here? Clear:  That face-licking dog is cute. Which dog is cute?  The dog that is licking a face is cute. Here’s another sentence that is confusing without punctuation...

DANCING WITH THE STARS SEASON 25, FALL 2017 PREMIERE Welcome to Week 1 of Season 25 of Dancing with the Stars!  Tom and Erin hosted, as lively and witty as ever. Carrie Ann Inaba (CAI), Len Goodman, and Bruno Tonioli (left to right, as usual) judged.   THE FULL CAST! “Property Brothers’” real-estate expert Drew Scott & pro Emma Slater Singer/Actor/former “98 Degrees” boy-band member Nick Lachey & pro Peta Murgatroyd Vanessa (Minillo) Lachey (Nick’s wife) & pro Maks Chmerkovskiy WWE Wrestler Nikki Bella & pro Artem Chigvintsev Actor/Singer/Dancer Jordan Fisher (Disney, “Hamilton”) & pro Lindsay Arnold Former NBA champ/former Knick’s Coach Derek Fisher & pro Sharna Burgess Former Paralympic Swimmer Victoria Arlen & pro Val Chmerkovskiy Actor Frankie Muniz (formerly ‘Malcom’: “Malcolm in the Middle”) & pro Witney Carson Electronic Violinist Lindsey Stirling & pro Mark Ballas (2-Time MBT winner) Singer/Dancer Debbie Gibson & pro Alan Bersten “Shark Tank” Investor Barbara Corcoran & pro Keo Motsepe Actress Sasha Pieterse (“Pretty Little Liars”) & pro Gleb Savchenko Retired NFL Receiver Terrell Owens & pro Cheryl Burke (2-Time MBT winner) The Possible Ballroom & Latin Dances: Foxtrot, Quickstep, Waltz, Viennese Waltz, Jive, Jazz, Charleston, Contemporary; Cha-Cha, Samba, Salsa, Tango, Argentine Tango, Rhumba, Paso Doble.   Dancing With The Stars: Week...

DANCING WITH THE STARS PRE-SEASON 25 EXCITEMENT! September 17, 2017...

DANCING WITH THE STARS PRE-SEASON 25 EXCITEMENT!    September 17, 2017   NEWS Frequent Pro Sasha Farber will have less work to do on the show this season as a troupe member so that he can also work on and line up other projects. Like, maybe helping to plan his wedding to Emma Slater?  I’m eager to see Season 24 winner pro Emma Slater dance with new celeb partner Drew Scott; I think they could do pretty well. Dance veteran Debbie Gibson has been recovering from Lyme disease, which can be very serious. Pro partner Alan Bersten is taking good care of her. Her decades in fitness probably help a lot, too. It’s been said that Terrell Owens once won a Michael Jackson dance contest. He really seems to be a good, upstanding guy. I’d say that, paired with longtime Dancing with the Stars pro and Mirrorball Trophy-winner Cheryl Burke, he could have a good chance of going long toward a win. I’m guessing that they’ll stay more toward the center of the pack for a while and then move forward. Violinist Lindsey Stirling may have an advantage or two over other celeb competitors this season. One, she’s paired with ultra-creative pro Mark Ballas. Two, her knowledge of music could...
