Sunday Stills, the next challenge: Your Best Shot of 2010
Posted in Sunday Stills with tags Sunday Stills on December 26, 2010 by Ed

Time for an archive challenge, of all the shots you have taken in 2010, lets see your best..:-)

Happy New Year!!

I am 47 and never been kissed.
I went Down Under to look for a hunk,
A kangaroo took pity on me,
And gave me my first kiss.

Do you know who made that famous statement, "Never been kissed?"

addition: Susan Boyle

Simon Cowell sneered and the huge audience at the “Britain’s Got Talent” show made the sort of faces associated with a bad smell. The object of their disaffection was contestant No. 43212, a plain, middle-aged woman from Scotland with bushy eyebrows and a dress and hairdo that might have been stylish when Dwight Eisenhower was president.

The looks of disdain would shortly turn to tears of sheer elation, as Dawna Friesen said in a report filed for TODAY Wednesday. But first, there was the Cowell torture test for the woman to endure.

“What’s your name, darling?” Cowell said, his tone dripping with condescension.

The woman, who seemed somewhat unnerved by the bright lights and the big crowd in the concert hall where the show was recorded, said she was Susan Boyle. She said she was 47 years old, unemployed, and lived alone with her cat, Pebbles. She had never gone on a date and had never been kissed, she added in a thick brogue.

I wish you too a very Happy New Year! I wish you happiness and health!
I had a very busy week, for I had two young couples from Poland. They were all students, but one. all week we went to church with the guests from Taizé to attend a service at 8.30 then we had a meeting in smaller groups and we discussed several subjects like: trust, joy, compassion, forgiving...Then we had coffee and after that the guests went to Rotterdam to meet the other young people.There were 30,000 young people from various countries in Europe. They had lunch in Rotterdam and a hot meal and came back at 9 pm.They left on New Year's Day. We were all sad about to say goodbye..
This afternoon I will meet two Greek bloggers with their families.They will come here at 4 pm. Great, I am looking forward to meeting them!

Animals show us compassion also.

Oh that shot is just precious! I admit to big sloppy tear shedding when I watched Boyle's audition online. That was such a moment of triumph.
