A small non-frugal post. . .

This YouTube video has nothing to do with frugality or simple living, as far as I can tell, but it's making me tear up and I just wanted to share it with you.

It's the British version of American Idol, which is called Britain's Got Talent (neither of which I watch), and it's the singing of a woman named Susan Boyle, whom the audience clearly expected to fail, miserably.

And what did she do? She went out there and knocked their socks off!! You have to watch it to appreciate how courageous and talented this woman is. I'm not a fan of these types of shows (they often seem scripted to me) but this episode is a real winner!

Okay, so with that, back to the frugal issues tomorrow!

Hey

Just thought I would drop a line and say that I recently discovered reading your blog and have enjoyed your site very much!

That aside, saw this video clip a few days ago as well and was great to see how everyone didn't have much of an expectation from her, until she sang and blew their minds away. Brought a smile to my face :-).

Keep up the great work!
