OK, time to blow my own horn. Back in 2013 I wanted to make a video documenting Jackie's career, with pictures in chronological order, so she could be seen as she grew. Some few errors were made in the sequence, I'm sure, and it was relatively crudely made with Windows Moviemaker, but it was a labor of love. Later, I made the sequels, 2013 and 2014 along the same lines, having learned a little more, but even then others had left me in the dust for video-making skill!
Thanks for this video, Bucsfan! I enjoyed both the music and the skating! It is interesting how they permit vocal music in some skating competitions but not in others -- not sure why that is. Jackie's voice lends itself well to this kind of thing, definitely! The skater did nicely in timing her various moves to Jackie's vocals in "To Believe." The announcer mispronounced the name "Evancho," and instead of saying the song was sung by Jackie Evancho, he merely mentioned Matthew Evancho as the composer. Oh, well.... This was very enjoyable!
rickolsen: I just gave my cats some gravy dinner. They are gobbling it down. I have to go to Walmart soon and get them some more. Maybe I'll do it today. I can't run out. They like it too much. I don't want to disappoint them.

rickolsen: I got my cats more gravy dinner. I got more roast beef and pastrami for me and a loaf of bread. My diet is working well. I've lost about 45lbs. in the last year. My doctor says whatever I'm doing is working. I just cut out starch like potatoes.

rickolsen: I'm eating no bake cookies while I watch Super Bowl 42. There is no better taste combination than dark chocolate, oatmeal, and peanut butter. I really feel good today. No more dizzyness. I didn't look drunk walking into Walmart. I hate that.

rickolsen: Gas was only $1.87 today so I filled up my tank. Cost $7.75. I don't know why gas prices have dropped so much, but I won't complain. You have to get a break once in a while in life.

rickolsen: I just went to Walmart and got some cucumbers and green peppers. I think eating these things helps my diet. They are tasty and they have low calories. I'm eating green peppers now. I put salt on them. Salt makes everything taste better.

rickolsen: Phoenix is sleeping. Brandie and Sampson aren't sleeping yet. I took a long nap so I'll be up all night. I'm watching the 2007 divisional game between the Giants and the Cowboys. I might make a roast beef sandwich later. I'm not really hungry now.

rickolsen: Sampson is sleeping now. So is Brandie. I hate it when I know I should eat something and I'm just not hungry. I can't force myself to eat when I'm not hungry. Can you?

rickolsen: I ate a pastrami sandwich. I've never gotten pastrami and roast beef before last time, but I really like them. I'm a meat and potatoes man. I don't eat potatoes anymore because of starch, so I'm just a meat man. I could never be a vegetarian or a vegan.

rickolsen: I'm eating chips and salsa while I watch the divisional playoffs between the 2011 Giants vs Packers. The Giants win. I really like salsa.

rickolsen: I have to shut my window at night now. I don't want my furnace to kick on. My cats and I like to be warm though.

rickolsen: I just gave my cats some gravy dinner. It is seafood and they are gobbling it down. I feel really good today. I haven't felt dizzy for 2 days. I just ate 2 bowls of potato soup. I don't eat potatoes very often, but I like potato soup.

rickolsen: I just opened my livingroom window. Sampson is already in it. I have to close it at night now, but I open it during the day. My furnace hasn't kicked on yet. I don't want it to. I have covers at night now. Phoenix always sleeps with me. She likes covers.

rickolsen: After I gave my cats some gravy dinner they all went to sleep. They are sleeping now. I'm eating green peppers while I watch football. I really like green peppers. I put a little salt on them. Earlier I said salt makes everything taste better. It doesn't.

rickolsen: You wouldn't put salt on your chocolate pudding or chocolate cake. But salt does make most regular food like meat and veggies taste better.

rickolsen: My cats and I are well. Phoenix and Brandie are sleeping, but Sampson isn't. I just went to Walmart and got some more sandwich meat, roast beef and pastrami. I like to eat it without bread. I'm not supposed to eat bread.
