Still Gorgeous with a Warm, Inviting Personality

I just happened to catch an episode of The One Show where you mentioned that you had a new podcast! (I’m in Oregon (USA) and subscribe to a package of British Channels). What fun it was to “see” you again after all these years. I just turned 66 and you were an “idol” of mine. It’s just delightful to hear your voice and see how your life has turned out. What an amazing life you’ve lived. Your podcast makes me feel like I’m a little fly on the wall listening to you talking with your friends. How delightful. I look forward to more episodes and thank you kindly for the memories you’re sharing! Hugs from the other side of the pond...

A New Podcast to Love

Today I listened to the podcast with Phil Rosenthal of Somebody Feeds Phil. It was a very warm and fun podcast. I laughed and learned a few new things along the way. Both Mrs. Lawson and the Rosenthals sounded like normal people that I would have as neighbors. Bravo! I have subscribed and anticipate the next podcast. Cheers! Time for a snack with all that talk of food.
