    USFS announces Alysa Liu's coaching change to Barkell & Nichol in Toronto and Massimo Scali in Oakland, CA

    A girl can get her period as early as 8 or as late as 18. As to the shoe thing, I wouldn't know, but I vaguely remember an article on the actress/model Brooke Shields. Apparently, as a newborn, the doctor took one look at the infant Brooke's large feet and exclaimed to her mom 'Your daughter is...

    USFS announces Alysa Liu's coaching change to Barkell & Nichol in Toronto and Massimo Scali in Oakland, CA

    Goodness, all the Negative Nellie's! Why don't we give Alysa's new coaching team a chance? She's not the only athlete who has to train virtually with coaches, as well as pretty much self-train off ice. Like other elite skaters, she's obviously unable to train as she wants to with all of the...

    USFS announces Alysa Liu's coaching change to Barkell & Nichol in Toronto and Massimo Scali in Oakland, CA

    I think this will be a great move for Alysa. IMO, with a world class ice dancer by her side, her edge work, speed, quality of movement, etc. are going to improve by leaps and bounds. She already presents very nicely, and has a bit of the show biz in her. That too will only be further enhanced...

    Mirai working to help keep her family's restaurant going

    I'm so proud of Mirai. The way she took the initiative when her parent's restaurant business was in trouble no thanks to the ********* nightmare that we're currently living in. What a stand up daughter! ๐Ÿ˜

    Royalty Thread#12 Tiaras, Palaces & Gilded Cages

    Super high, spiked stilleto heels weren't the fashion in the '80s. At least not for tall Diana who I believe was concious of trying not to dwarf her then husband. She wore flats for her wedding too. I think she and Charles were the same height. And she did have someone come in to do her hair and...

    Royalty Thread#12 Tiaras, Palaces & Gilded Cages

    Fortunately, the 2013 act which replaced the Royal Marriages Act of 1772, was retroactive as far as Royals marrying Roman Catholics - which is why Prince Michael of Kent is now restored to the line of succession. IMO, it should have been retroactive to all females in the line as well! I'd like...

    Royalty Thread#12 Tiaras, Palaces & Gilded Cages

    Yes, the Prince of Wales is indeed always red in the face. When I was young I thought it was sunburn lol! Anyway, I wish HRH a full recovery, and continued good health for HM the Queen and all the members of the Royal family! I wish the same for HSH Prince Albert of Monaco and all other Royals...

    ISU Cancels 2020 World Figure Skating Championships

    There's some part of me that still can't believe that this is happening. In our local programming they've been rerunning this year's US Nationals in what would have been the 2020 Worlds slot. :(

    How are skaters training?

    Yes, that's what I was thinking too. Here in Florida most everything is closed except for grocery stores, pharmacies, etc. - and the beaches. Ask Florida's governor how come... :shuffle:

    How are skaters training?

    TomZ posted some videos of some skaters practicing in a 'private rink' on his IG. I wonder if some other skaters are doing this if they have the option? Anyway, I just hope and pray that everyone stays strong and healthy!

    Chris Reed has passed away

    It's been a few days now and I still can't quite believe it. Rest in peace Chris. My heart goes out to his friends and loved ones. โค๏ธ๐Ÿ™โค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ’”

    With this year's worlds cancelled because of the *********-19 *********, Rob Pizzo looks at the time the event didn't happen.

    I watch 1961 Nationals too sometimes. It's haunting - knowing the fate of most of those top skaters, their coaches, and their loved ones who shared that fatal final flight. The skaters are all so heartbreakingly young. I'm old enough now to be a mother to the eldest of them. ๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”๐Ÿ’”โ›ธ๏ธโ›ธ๏ธ
