Middle aged somebody rocks world

Not much in the last couple of days worth writing about ... but I have to tell you, the big surprise of this past week was Susan Boyle of Blackburn, West Lothian, and her audition performance at Britain's Got Talent, which has to rank as big of a shock as Terry Fator's audition on the American version of the show two years ago when he did a spot-on ventriloquizing of Etta James (Fator, who has four hundred or so voices in his repertoire, went on to win the competition and now has a nine-figure contract in Las Vegas).

Most of you have seen the YouTube of Boyle's stunning performance of "I Had a Dream" from Les Misérables. Due to some copyright issues, embedding has been removed, but if you haven't seen it already you have to see Susan Boyle for yourself ... this is simply stunning. She's already the odds on favourite to win it all this year, and I won't be surprised if she does. Too bad I can't vote. But this Scottish dynamo certainly deserves a nine figure contract herself.
