A positive note ~ Susan Boyle ~ And Americas got Talent

Wednesday, July 22nd, 2009

UPDATE:…Looks like this post¬†is going to be a moot point…¬† well not exactly but most of it will because everyone is going to get it AFTER the fact¬†AND the¬†President pre-empted the repeat show …….¬† and tonight it really wasn’t very good….¬† I was disappointed …however the message in this post is still the same … read on to the end to find out what that is¬†…..¬†

This is a real quickie…. another post to follow soon….

I dont know how many of you are watching Americas Got Talent….¬†but I have been glued to my set on Tuesdays and Wednesdays while trying to sew ….needless to say … I havent gotten much sewing done…with good reason…..¬†¬†I¬†must say I have never seen more creative ….. amazing…. inspiring¬†……. extremely¬†talented¬†people in my¬†life…. many who brought tears to my eyes…. some with extraordinary stories….

There is the guy from KY whose looks belie his singing voice in that you would never imagine the¬†heavenly way he sang….the 60 something woman who¬†always wanted to dance and by golly she did¬† …¬† the 75 year old grandma with a humorous side…. the guys from Richmond, VA with ages ranging from to 60 on down whose harmonies will melt your heart…the¬†beautiful mother who survived cancer to fullfill her dream of singing…. and the lovely young lady from last night who applied for a job on a cruise ship only to be shot down because of her looks (she has scars on her face) …. she was rejected because they couldnt get past them¬†…. wow can she belt out a tune!!!

All the above made it to the finals in Las Vegas ….¬† there are so many more who are just as talented and just as phenomenal¬† (I couldnt name them all …the ones I did are just a small sampling ) …. and I know I sound like a commercial for this show but seriously if you get a chance …. cop a squat and watch an¬†hour of pure entertainment¬†that will keep you completely glued to your seat for the duration….. then watch the¬†elimination process that leads up to the Grande Finale¬†in Vegas starting next week…. oh yes…. they usually have a repeat of the show from the night before an hour ahead of the current one… so if you wish to see last nights show and the young lady I was talking about …. then tune in tonight at 8 pm EST with the current show to follow¬†at 9¬†¬†EST…. for those not in Eastern time slot of course check your local listings ….

And ……for those who may be interested…. the lovely singer that captured our hearts from Britains got talent¬†¬† ….. none other than Susan Boyle….. is going to appear some time tonight¬†on the show at¬†9 pm¬†¬†EST….

Ok… so I know you are saying… why…why is she writing about this?¬† well… one of the main reasons is to instill a bit of the positive¬†¬†¬† …….¬† I know this is going to sound a bit sappy but¬†¬† ….¬† all of these people had a dream… many were shot down but did not give up … and they are persuing that dream…¬† to make it as far as they have…. well thats an accomplishment ….. so …. if one needs to be inspired…. if one needs a little shove in the right direction…. I believe this¬†program is one that shows you that there are people who believe in themselves ….. who didnt give up¬†…….. and with a lot of encouragement can make it…. that goes for all of us with our dreams too…. no matter how tough things might get…..¬† keep that dream alive…. it does work….

Watch the show you wont regret it…

PS… if you do … come back and let me know what you think… and don’t be shy if you dont like it… tell me so…

Ciao for now!!!

A Little guest/s part 2

Tuesday, July 7th, 2009

I can not¬†begin to tell you how much fun it has been to watch with wonderment from such a close proximity ….nature in action….. the comings and goings and doings of this darling family … have been ….. in an understatement …..completely fascinating…..¬†

To see these¬†babies with barely a feather begin to morf into little nubbies is pure joy….. watching mom and dad feed them… rotate them …..¬† warm them …. its really hard to put into words the amazement of it all…¬† Mom has gotten so used to me now that she doesnt even blink when I stand with camera in hand to capture every moment that I can…. too bad I cant give her a photo album eh??¬†

Now my little ones have been aptly named…. winkin, blinkin, and nod…¬† you will see from the photos ….just how appropiate the names are….¬† For those who havent seen the first edition of this continuing saga please read the post below…. those who have … I truly hope you enjoy the photos….
