Neil Diamond - Hot Night In August/ NYC 2009

Caught a peek at the Neil Diamond NYC 2009 special while channel surfing... What a voice! What a guy!

Neil Diamond can still pack the house at his age ;) His voice still sounds as great as it did the very first time I listened to one of his songs. It almost brings tears to your eyes.

The camera crew took him to his old neighbor hood and to the home he grew up in. Some people didn't have a clue who he was and others welcomed him with open arms.

He didn't have a hard time filling the venue to capacity and the crowd was on their feet singing and dancing the entire show! Good for him... you go guy; :)

To see more check out his official website:


Candy Spelling Speaks Out On Regis and Kelly

Candy Spelling is on Regis and Kelly right now speaking out against her Daughter Tori Spelling.

The long on going feud between Mother and Daughter has came to a head. She is accusing Tori of "making her the butt of a joke" on the reality show Tori and her Husband Dean star in.

Candy has also announced that she has not met her Grandchildren and did not go to the Birthday parties because she didn't want to be part of the reality show. She also said that she texts and calls Tori with no return response. She is hoping that being on this show and speaking out will be a "wake up call" to her Daughter.

Hummm.... what do you all think?

Did I also mention that she has written a book?

Shopping in Chicago - The Lego Store

My Son and I tagged along on a business trip with the Husband. We headed off to the Lego store. Jack 4 1/2 was in Lego shock. He didn't know what or where to look. He ended up playing at the Lego table where thousands of other little hands have been.

My Husband tried to head him off at the pass but failed. So we just let him play. Trying to scope out where we could find some hand sanitizer (which we left in the car).

Fun, fun stuff! They had a area where you could get a large plastic cup to fill with different Lego pieces in every color shape and size, kind of a buy by the pound thing. Jack had fun filling his cup with stairs, flowers, wheels, tree branches pieces he somehow knew he would need someday.

The Lego store is for Boys like the American Girl store is for Girls. We left with two very large bags of Lego's, so that's what a million pieces to get sucked up by the vacuum.

Then it was off to Giradelli's for Chocolate and Ice Cream ;) I picked up some ground chocolate! I am so excited to try it. It's one of their original items. You can use it in baking, hot chocolate, coffee the list is endless ;)

Jack finally fell asleep in the stroller, so I popped into some clothing stores and grabbed a pair of dark boot cut jeans and a gray wool jacket for fall. I enjoyed the attention from the Sales gals willing to help the Mom with the sleeping child. Life is good ;)

Paula Abdul's Exit From American Idol Why?

Paula Abdul is no longer on American Idol? Rumors say it was money related.

Paula Abdul an Idol judge for what, the last eight years has left the show. They are saying she had a history of being late, undependable, acting loopy, not paying attention as well as other issues. If this was the reason then why keep her for so many years?

A new gal (I don't even know her name!) was brought in as judge what last year? Was it a warning to Paula to get it together or leave? Did it work?

Rumor has it that it was all over money. The other two judges Simon and Randy apparently were making $15 million compared to $2 million Paula was bringing in (or something around that). Paula was asking for a raise, $12 million. She is or was on the show as much as the others, as a judge so why not?

I think she should have received a raise! Why were the others making so much more? Do you know the name of the "new gal"? I think it will be strange to watch the show with out Paula. I'm not a die hard fan but with out Paula sitting next to Simon arguing over the new up and coming talent just won't be the same :( It will be interesting to see what happens this Season.

There are rumors of Paula moving to a new show "So You Think You Can Dance". Maybe that's why she left or for another job. Let's hope so! I think Paula will be missed on American Idol. It's kind of like when all of a sudden they changed "Mr. Brady" the Dad from The Brady Bunch show. That didn't' sit well now did it.

Let me know what you think ;)

Happy Summer!
