Congratulations to Kris Allen!! The new American Idol. I thought he would win but I was still so surprised...in a great way! good for him. I'm sure Laurie will have more posting to do sharing in the excitement in Arkansas!
For those of you who watched American Idol did you love it and were you so fully entertained by all the talent as I was! I can only imagine the utter thrill they had singing with the celebraties like Danny singing 3 songs with Lionel Ritchie, and Kiss was there and Rod Stewart...fabulous!
UPDATE - I can now post Barbara's blogspot : http://www.barbaramuirpaints.com/
Its so exciting and I wanted to share with you that tomorrow, Thursday a friend of mine will be on Oprah on "Where the Skype are you?" Barbara is a faculty where I work and she paints. She paints portraits, still pictures...pics of her cat...her family. She has a lovely blog where she shares her paintings and her stories faithfully every day. When Barb paints a commissioned portrait she has the subject(s) sit for her while she paints. She shares her connection with that person and being an english teacher she writes in such a lovely, light hearted positive way.
Some weeks ago Oprah found out about her and she was contacted. Oprah wants her to sketch a picture of her and one of her puppies She had an interview a couple of weeks ago on Skype. If you watch Oprah you'll see her on Skype on Oprah! It will be aired at 4:00 p.m. my time which means because I'm off at 3:30 I'll be home in good time. Isn't that neat? Its so wonderful for Barb to be recognized in this way. I would be interested to know if you watch and see her! Way to go Barbara!
