How amazing is Jake Gyllenhaal?

Contribution by German Flowers

My favorite actor of all time would have to be Jake Gyllenhaal. I started watching his movies on my satellite tv (direct tv satellite hd) as a little girl. Fell in love with all of his work. My favorite movie of all time happens to be Donnie Darko which he was the star of. I fell in love with that movie for the fact that it was so creepy yet amazing at the same time. The fact that you have to actually pay attention to see what is going on and you can watch it over and over again and still be like wait what just happened always captures my attention. Its also a very dramatic movie with some romance and a lot of horror. It has a lot of elements that I really enjoy in my movies. Jake started acting at the age of ten with the movie October Sky. He has been in a lot of great movies including The day after tomorrow, jarhead, brokeback mountain and the goodgirl. In 2004 he was also chosen to be part of the rock the vote campaign.

I don't get too much time to watch television these days, but every day during my lunch hour I make sure and turn on The Steve Wilkos Show at 1:00 pm. Steve Wilkos usually has guests that have cheated on their spouses or hurt they're children. He asks several questions, and at the end of the show, he always reads the results of a previously administered lie detector exam. I enjoy The Steve Wilkos Show so much, even if I leave the room, I pause the TV, so I don't miss a thing!

Steve Wilkos used to be a bodyguard on the Jerry Springer show. He is also a formy police officer, and was in the army. Because of his background, Steve tends to be a very intimidating talk show host. He has a big build, a loud voice, and is very passionate about what he believes in. By the end of each show, he has usually taken a chair from one or more of his guests, and thrown them across the stage. Although his demeanor comes across as a bully, he cares very much for people, and always offers his help if the guest is willing to accept it.

I cook pork adobo and menudo for our dinner tonight my husband asking me to make them. He tried this food in one of the Filipino gathering we went. I am a little bit scared to do it at first because it is my first time to make this food and the fact that his daughter was in our place also because he invited her to come made me a little bit nervous. When the food is cooked I asked them to come to the table to eat and I am really nervous hoping that they both like the food I prepared. Luckily they both said that it was a good food and they like it. Although I make a little bit changes in some of the ingredients that supposed to be in the recipe.

We are so conscious about our weight that sometimes lead us on an improper diet. Eating little each time you feel hungry will help a lot to control yourself eating too much. I have some food to recommend here that will help reduce our appetite every time we feel hungry.
Eating this food will really help us a lot without sacrificing our health. Almonds is good because it has a fiber which helps naturally to suppressed hunger. Apple is a good source of pectin, an indigestible fiber that slows down the rate of stomach emptying. Pine nuts a good source of polyunsaturated fatty acids which cause secretion of two hormones. Oatmeal is a good breakfast because it is rich of fiber and a good source of complete carbohydrates which help stabilize insulin level. Egg it contains high protein which make it a natural hunger suppressant.

Including this food in your daily meals can really help a lot to make you stay fit and healthy. The natural benefits you will get in all this food will make your stomach happy and satisfied.

After I eat my dinner, I call my husband to check on him. He told me that his father and brother are in the house cutting the meat of the deer they butcher this afternoon and he was helping them. He offered to do it in the house because his parent's kitchen is small and they need more space especially all three of them are working on it. He told me that my father-in-law asked if I could make my barbecue with the meat of the deer. I told my husband I could, but I won't eat it I can only make it for them.

On my way out in our house to go to work I saw my father-in-law and brother-in-law butchering the deer they shot. I know they had three deer to butcher and no clue how many they have done already. They need to take out all the inner thing for that poor deer and skin them. They wave and say "hi" to me and tease me to come and check what they are doing. I just laughed at them as a reply and said that my ride is coming and I need to go to work.
