congratulations to danielle for winning voice, and to pf for picking her from 'hello'. this little girl's gonna be bigger'n Kelly Clarkson and carrie underwood combined. maybe even bigger than tayler swift, if fans ever grow bored with teen date- revenge songs. Danielle and hunter hayes duoed seamlessly with an exciting new c&w sound on stage tonight. with hunter's remarkable songwriting skills, and Danielle's awesome vocals and beauty, this pair could light a hot fresh fire under Nashville that could turn country music on its okie ear....

that said, there were four winners on the voice stage tonight. this sort of thing is often said to placate the losers in a singing competition.--not in this case. we will be hearing more from michelle and from the swons in the future--congrats to them as well....

Oh yes, I plan on following Michelle! did you know, 40,000 people auditioned for the 4th season of The Voice...so they were the top 3 of 40,000...they ARE all winners.

Morning! Got my coffee and my laptop and I'm listening to the magpies and the crows yelling at each other. The crows have had their baby out the last few days learning to fly and its still a bit awkward. The magpies are ticked that the crows are hanging around my yard (good pickin's) and they can't come eat. Lots of yelling. Fun to watch though.

Lidia is going to be on PBS tomorrow night, at least on Boston PBS WGBH. If you're interested look for "Lydia Celebrates America".

goddess, are you talking about a show that is on tonight, Friday, june 21st? hope I haven't missed it.
didja see how momma bastianich called out her son, joey, on masterchef the other night? dismissed him like some pesky little urchin when he tried to help her with the pasta sauce. hah! he turned right around and lamBASTED the contestant who was trying to put his 'own spin' on lidia's pasta dish, and who got eliminated for it. so, now we know how little joey bastianich came to deal with his inadequacies in life--by bullying the next little guy in line....

Oh no! I forgot about that - it was Thursday. If you go to PBS.org, then click "Video" in the top menu, then search "Lydia Celebrates Independence" you get all the episodes in her series. The title of Thursday's show was "Freedom and Independence" but it hadn't been uploaded to their site yet. Noticed that there must be a bazillion of them though! And about "Master Chef"? I don't watch those competition/reality shows. Getting second thoughts about watching "Whodunnit". Each time I see a promo it looks just a bit more hokey.

I made them myself... they are so crispy-crunchy crazy good, if I do say so...and oh so dunkable too! and guess what? they are equally marvelous dipped in a cuppa tea, for you 'mellow' types....

Oooh, lace cookies! Yes, Vit, I'll have one, thank you! Mmm, delicious!

No more coffee for me, had 2 cups of Nantucket this morn from the Keurig, and I'm still jittering.
