Happy National Nut Day!!!


This day is NOT about the neighbor that lives down the street or the crazy co-worker, it is a food holiday that celebrates a healthy and nutritious snack.  National Nut Day is celebrated each year on October 22.

Nuts are a highly prized food and energy source and are an important source of nutrients for both humans and wildlife.   Many of them are used in cooking, eaten raw, sprouted or roasted as a snack food, pressed for oil that is used in cookery and cosmetics.

The fats found in nuts, for the most part, are unsaturated fats including monounsaturated fats.

Many nuts are good sources of vitamins E and B2 and are also rich in protein, folate fiber and essential minerals such as magnesium, phosphorus, potassium, copper and selenium.

Nuts are important to animals, especially those in temperate climates, such as jays and squirrels, to name a few, as they store acorns and other nuts during the autumn months to keep from starving during late autumn, all winter and early spring.

Several studies have shown that those who consume nuts on a regular basis are less likely to suffer from coronary heart disease. (CHD)  It was in 1993 that nuts were first linked to protections against CHD.   Since that time, many clinical trials have found that consumption of various nuts such as almonds and walnuts can lower serum LDL cholesterol concentrations

One study has shown that people who ate nuts lived two to three years longer than those who did not. The results of the longer life may be due to the fact that because they were eating more nuts, they were in turn, eating less junk food.

Nuts are most healthy in their raw form.

David has often mentioned his love for this healthy food

A Friday “Glorious Surprise?”

Tweets that make you go hmmmm or ohhh!! ahhhh!! @MeettheMormons caught the fans attention last evening with the following tweet:

Tweet MTM Glorious Surprise coming

So, the above tweet from MTM is technically a tweet that was directed toward David, but because of the (dot) before his twitter handle, it was allowed to reach a broader base of twitter clients. Do you know about “the dot?” I didn’t (am I the last to know?) but I do understand its use now. Read about it below.

Although the tweet hasn’t yet received the prompted RT from David, there are a number of fans who have seen it, RT’d it, and are now curious as to what they’ll find on the MTM fb page this coming Friday! What are your thoughts??? Let us know what you’re thinking about this “surprise” in comments! Thanks!

With today’s quote regarding loving your present life while also pursuing your dreams, a look back at this special event in Orlando 3 years ago seems appropriate. It was a night of celebrating lives, struggles, obstacles, and hurdles, while continuing to pursue dreams, and achieve.

Two Performances By David accompanied by Sunny Hilden perfected the night and celebration.

Sunny and David DSH CMN awards 10-22-2011
Dream Sky High~The perfect song for this occasion! So meaningful and sublime with a lovely and honest intro by Meredith Vieira. David’s words prior to singing regarding the children of CMN and the event were so articulate and lovely. He spoke with humility, gratitude, and grace. What a beautiful night for him, Sunny, and his mother, Lupe was also there in attendance. ♥ The spontaneous standing ovation following his performance was offered in greatest admiration and appreciation.

Lean On Me ~Sweet and Sooo Soulful~

Folks from the South

DA Southern Hospitality

I love the A-Ok emoji!  Seems David was headed somewhere (perhaps back home to Utah?) when he encountered some Southern Hospitality along the way – though I can’t imagine anyone being anything but hospitable if they met up with David!

David’s no stranger to the South

The Idol Tour visited several Southern States, and while David was there, he took some time to film his very first music video – Crush!  Filmed at Wynn’s Pond in Coweta County, Georgia, David and a cast of lucky teens celebrate the end of summer at a Lake house before returning to school.

Read the Times-Hearald.com article: HERE

That’s Pretty Dang Exciting!

David filmed a vlog “Behind the Scenes” on the set of Crush!  He has nothing but good things to say about the crowd that attended the Idol Tour show the previous night – that Southern Hospitality shining through!

Entertainment Tonight (ET) also filmed a “Behind the Scenes” episode which was aired on national TV!  I remember watching it and being so excited for David and his future music career!

And with over 44 million views to date - Crush has once again put Wynn’s Pond on the map.  This location was also used in the Reese Witherspoon movie Sweet Home Alabama - a sweet southern romantic comedy that I watch every chance I get!  Here’s a trailer from the movie that features Wynn’s Pond!

Ok so Crush has over 44 million views – how about we give it a few more!  Maybe get it to 45 million!

Here’s a slideshow of pics from the filming of Crush!  Coweta County, Georgia is beautiful!

Vote Glorious to #1 on Musiqtone!

Screen Shot 2014-10-20 at 11.28.51 PM

Glorious sits at #2 from the last cycle, but going into the new cycle, Glorious has fallen to #3 behind the new video from 5 Seconds of Summer and of course Taylor Swift is still sitting pretty at #1.

Let’s rally and vote Glorious to #1 where it belongs!

Birthday Card Extension!

Shelley has given us a reprieve!  She has decided to leave David’s birthday card open for a few more days to give all Archies a chance to send their special birthday wishes to David.  Like in previous years, Shelley will be creating a birthday book for David from the sentiments in the card.  Attach a photo if you want David to see who’s sending the birthday greetings!
