Change the Way You Eat- the J. J. VIRGIN DIET- 7 Foods that Cause Food Intolerance- Drop 7 Foods to Lose 7 Pounds in 7 Days-

April 1st, 2013 • by Sandy Zimmerman

Pasta-Bad Foods

Milk-BAD FOODS

BAD FOODS


Peanuts-BAD FOODS


Eggs- BAD FOODS

Many people try one diet after another. There are so many diets but which one will really help you lose weight?

J. J. Virgin has found food intolerance is the real cause of weight gain. The seven foods most likely to cause food intolerance (or high-FI foods) are components of traditional “healthy” weight-loss programs: Gluten, Soy, Dairy, Eggs, Corn, Peanuts, Sugar and Artificial Sweeteners.

This is another theory contradictory to the traditionally accepted theories. You don’t have to count calories anymore with J. J. Virgin’s 21 day diet to reset your metabolism.

J. J. Virgin, CNS, CHFS, nutrition and fitness expert, feels, “Your body is a chemistry lab. Symptoms of corn sensitivities are similar to other food intolerance reactions including rashes and hives, migraines, joint pain, mood disorders, temporary depression, insomnia, eczema, fatigue, joint pain, hyper-activity in children.”

J. J. is a fan of grass-fed beef. She feels that Grass-fed beef is harder to find and more expensive than corn-fed beef. But the health value of Grass-fed beef is very important as it is lower in total fat, higher in vitamin E, vitamin B thiamin and riboflavin, calcium, magnesium and potassium. Grass-fed beef is also 2-3 times higher in anti-inflammatory omega-3s, lower in calories and leaner.

There are some very interesting food facts in J. J.’s diet plan, eg., dairy is bad for your bones. The Nurses’ Health Study showed those people who consumed the highest amount of milk had the highest risk of bone fractures.

Many people will be unhappy to know popcorn is not a healthy snack because it is made from damaged fats and it is high-glycemic which makes your blood sugar spike. Popcorn is a trigger food which makes you crave for more salt, starch and fat. Microwave popcorn may have toxins in the bag liners.

The Virgin Diet is divided into a three-cycle plan including elimination, reintroduction, and the Virgin Diet for life. Learning which foods cause reactions is very important.

J. J. Virgin has compiled her diet plan into a book- The Virgin Diet, drop 7 foods to lose 7 pounds in just 7 days. For more information, please see J. J. Virgin’s website: www.thevirgindiet.com

Hertz Car Rentals- celebrating their 95th Birthday!

January 1st, 2013 • by Sandy Zimmerman

Hertz Car Rentals is celebrating their 95th Birthday!

By Sandy Zimmerman

(Classic Photos by Hertz Rental Cars)

The story began back in 1918 when 22 year old Walter L. Jacobs opened a car rental company with 12 Model T Fords in Chicago. He repaired and repainted the cars himself.     

By 1922 Walter’s yearly revenue totaled $1,000,000 which was considered big money then, maybe not now. His car rental company was sold to John Hertz who was the president of Yellow Cab and Yellow Truck and Coach Manufacturing Company.   

Paula Rivera, Hertz Manager of Public Affairs, reminisced, “At that time, owning a car wasn’t a main-stream American thing. If people wanted to get around besides using a bike, bus or train, the only other option was to rent a car. I believe he only charged .10 cents an hour.”  (Continued)

A Dinner can become a Feast

November 4th, 2011 • by admin

 

Gaviotas Restaurant inside the Sheraton Buganvilias Resort

(Photos shot by Sandy Zimmerman ) 

When we arrived at Gaviotas Restaurant, their setting was startling. Just a few steps from the beach and beautiful Bandaras Bay, Gaviotas was the perfect place to watch the sunset. As we walked in, the atmosphere had touches of elegance with their unique mega- man-sized candles created by overlapping melted candles into an enormous base to place smaller candles. The pianist played ballads and love songs to set the mood. We were already beginning to enjoy ourselves.

Man-Sized Candles made with overlaping melted wax for a Giant Candle Holder

Gaviotas is truly everything you would want in a gourmet restaurant. Instead of simply ordering an appetizer, entrée and dessert from the menu, Roberto Cortez Rosendiz, Maitre Sommelier, and Executive Chef Roberto Alcaraz Linares, created a special five- course menu which provided a sampling of several dishes paired with international wines. What a feast!

You can eat the tree, branches, flowers and cakes!

Sommelier Roberto presented the first course their False Ravioli included scallops, mango, vinegar, Chile and lime gelatin. The light Sauvignon Blanc Rincones Wine from Chile had a fruitiness that paired well with the appetizer. Roberto discussed the details about the preparation of the False Ravioli and the qualities of the Chilean wine which he called “aromatic, soft and sensual.”

I have tasted salmon prepared in many ways but Chef Roberto was so creative for the second course, his Salmon Tart combined the flavors of chopped salmon, green Chile, onions, cilantro, lemon and Tajin, a tangy spicy seasoning.  

The seasoning awakened the salmon without overpowering its flavor. The tart was so tasteful I would have enjoyed it as an entrée. 

Steak & Coconut Shrimp!


Enjoy a Romantic Setting- Sheraton Buganvilias-#1

What could be better? The Sheraton Buganvilias Resort is like paradise!  From the moment you enter the resort, the beautiful Bandaras Bay, the beach and the exceptionally large pool are just a few steps away. 

I especially love the pool because it is surrounded by Palm trees with one tall tree in the middle of the pool.

There is also a choice to enjoy their second pool designed with a waterfall, oversized Jacuzzi and bridge. Taking a stroll around the recreation area is romantic when you enter the covered walkway.

I was surprised the window opened in our room so I was able to take photos and feel the gentle breezes.   


Magic with a French Twist

July 24th, 2011 • by admin

(Photos shot by Sandy Zimmerman during the live show except for two as indicated.)

French-born Stephane Vanel brought a different type of magic to the Paris Resort. Stephane’s “The Magic of Paris” show is a perfect match, oh, la, la, as French as they get!

Stephane’s smooth card manipulations were amazing. Some of his classic movements were mixed with new innovations while others were his own creations. Switching from cards to coins and balls, Stephane took slight-of-hand magic to another level.

Stephane’s White Box illusion finale deserves rave reviews. The White Box is small and narrow only big enough for his petite female assistant. Once she enters the box the audience only sees her hands continuously moving. After he keeps making the box smaller and smaller, the audience wonders, “What happened to the girl?” You really have to experience this illusion for yourself.

Even though I was photographing the show near the stage, I couldn’t see how he did it!

Besides making objects or people appear and disappear at will, Stephane’s dancing talents are also demonstrated in his very sensual, hot tango that would probably win on “Dancing with the Stars”.

(Photo by Holden Jay)

Although Stephane has appeared in several Las Vegas shows, this is his first time as headliner. His credits include a seven-year run in MGM Grand’s Crazy Horse Paris, as well as appearances in “Crazy Girls” at the Riviera.  In France, Vanel gained fame hosting his own television series “Fun TV Magic” and soon became a worldwide success noted for his charm and magical skills.

But there is more than magic and illusions, you will be happy to see the show is also packed with a variety of acts-

Mark Kornhauser-

comedian Mark Kornhauser’s comedy, puppeteer Anthony Rais and a pair of beautiful female dancers.



Ricky Martin’s Show was Hot . . . Hot . . . Hot!

May 20th, 2011 • by Sandy Zimmerman

(Photos shot by Sandy Zimmerman during the live show.)

Ricky Martin brought all of the passion of his “Musica + Alma + Sexo” show to Caesars Palace’s Colosseum Theater. From the moment the show opened with a video of Ricky bound in chains struggling to free himself to the frantic beat of his finale, Ricky’s show was Hot . . . Hot . . . Hot!

The excitement built into a frenzy of sensual dancing and pulsating music. With such a high energy performance and seemingly non-stop action, each number became more explicit than the last. They named the show “Musica + Alma + Sexo” (Music, Soul and Sex), a perfect description of what to expect. The stage was “on-fire” with Ricky and his dancers in their daring interpretations of each song.

I enjoyed the uncontrollable, frantic emotion of the dancing combined with Ricky’s raw animal magnetism. His performance touched the audience and I think Ricky will gain many new fans. He really took command of the stage.

It seemed like a simple three tiered metallic scaffold bridge setting divided into nine squares but Ricky can make anything exciting. Ricky and his dancers slid down poles and moved about the squares using them as props for their choreography. Even the shirtless guitarists joined in the dancing while playing.

Your Wedding Planning Just Got Easier!


Paula Poundstone is Different!

May 15th, 2011 • by Sandy Zimmerman

(Photos shot by Sandy Zimmerman during the live show.)

I had a chance to interview comedian Paula Poundstone before

her show and felt she had a refreshing “honesty” about herself.

Paula spoke to me just as she did to the audience at the Suncoast

Hotel.

“My act is autobiographical. I talk about raising three kids and

16 cats.

Just like every other parent, I try to strike that balance.

Fortunately I love my work and I love taking care of my kids so

those are my two favorite things to do which is lucky because

that’s all I ever get to do except for an occasional game of ping

pong.”

Sixteen cats are a lot of cats and a lot of litter boxes!

She complained, “A lot of people say ‘how did you get 16 cats?’

I’ll tell you exactly how I got 16 cats, I had 15 and I got one more.

I swear, I sift litter so much I have a callous on my hand.

I’m a trained professional sifter which is ironic because I never

enjoyed the beach that much.

Sifting is my main job.
