Twitter made me famous.....sort of




First I want to thank all my blogger friends for the advice about whether to take my youngest daughter E to NYC. It was overwhelming in her favor to stay home. So it is settled and she has her dress and accessories picked out for the dance. I will post pictures another time. It isn't a conventional outfit but as I have said before, one her great traits is to "walk to the beat of her own drum"

I have the greatest children ever. My oldest daughter has posted a blog on her site that about brought me to tears stop by and say hi. Something about Nothing & Everything Else


As for the title of todays blog, beause of Twitter my "name" is in Q Magazine. It is an import here in the US but I buy it every month without fail and often read it cover to cover. I was reading the Cash for Questions article they have each month and was intrigued by one of the questions submitted by someone in Massachusetts so as I read on and saw the name of who submitted the question it was none other than me!!

For those that don't know, Cash for Questions is a monthy feature where readers can submit questions to the celebrity, singer, whoever they are featuring in a future issue. Questions are sent in mostly by email and now twitter apparently. After reading the question I barely remember tweeting it. I follow Q on Twitter so for a lark must have asked the question and promptly forgot. So needless to say I was quite thrilled to see it there in black and white. I have sent in letters to the editor before but not had one published. Question now is .... where's my cash.

OH NO! I popped over to your daughters site to leave a message, only to find that she has one of those embedded thingys that I can never get onto! They are the CURSE of my life! There are so many sites that I would like to leave messages on, but I can't because of these THINGS!
Please sent her my regards, and that I tried to leave a comment.
I buy "Q" every month too, but I'm not that keen on Ant and Dec, even though I once worked with them before they became really famous on a programme called "Byker Grove". Other English readers will know it!
Big Hugs!

YAY. How exciting! I had a letter to the editor published in my local newspaper in the early 90s...I'll never forget all the hate mail it brought. I was speaking out against Newt Gingrich saying women had no place in combat and apparently a lot of old-fashioned people who believe a woman's place is in the home are prone to writing letters to those who write letters to the editor... It was the first and LAST time I did that!
