Susan Boyle

OKAY---so it was a big setup on the show Britains Got Talent....Susan Boyles appearance caused people to think she would be an imbecile and then she wasn't....now all these shows are talking "makeovers" etc...Hey- I like the way she looks! She looks like a Scottish middle aged lady. Leave her be! She shouldn't be hollywoodized! I think she seems like a spunky intelligent gal.

A tribute to her "smarts" below...

The 47-year-old Scot raised eyebrows when she told a British television audience on Saturday that she'd "never been kissed."

"It was said as a joke, not an advert. Can we move on?" Boyle said, laughing. And as for the flood of attention -- with fans and even competition judge Piers Morgan offering to give her a peck -- Boyle said she's flattered, but isn't letting herself be carried away.

"If people want to kiss me, it has to be controlled," she said, still chuckling.

Winter of Frozen Dreams movie :-(

Based on the book about a murder in Madison Wisconsin by a  UW student who was in the massage parlor biz....For me the book was particularly appealing because of the familiarity of the case and characters, and also the areas in Madison. The movie isn't bad but I was disappointed that it was filmed in upstate NY! Anyhow, I had higher hopes for it!
