Tales of Passion

February 28, 2008

Novelist Isabel Allende talks about writing, women, passion, feminism. She tells the stories of powerful women she has known, some larger-than-life (listen for a beauty tip from Sophia Loren), and some simply living with grace, dignity and ingenuity in a world that, in too many ways, still treats women unjustly.

Listen and be inspired!

John Smeaton.  What a guy!

In response to the terrorist attack on Glasgow Airport at the weekend … my favourite quote:

“John did an interview on cnn and they asked how he restrained the guy and he said “me and other folk were just tryin 2 get the boot in and some other guy banjoed him” !

Pure genius and only in Scotland! 

John Smeaton you have summed us up quite beautifully.  I’m so very proud!!!
