A star is born

Well, one of the highlight of the last few days (for both Mrs C
and myself) was watching the X Factor Final. We've watched most
of the X Factor competition, and the final featured some really
amazing performances ... Alexandra Burke deserved to be the
finalist ... a superb voice and a great personality. A star is

If you haven't seen her singing, here is a YouTube film of her
final tearful performance ... not as good as her earlier one that
evening, but you'll get a good idea of how great a singer she is.
The YouTube film might expire within the next 28 days or so, and
I could only see half of it this morning.

I've been very busy in the last few days doing website stuff and
processing over 100 photos I took at a Xmas party I went to (on
Monday), and getting half of them onto a Flickr site. Taking the
photos was quite good fun, but I felt it was too intrusive for some
people there, who weren't keen on being photographed.

How would you feel if you were munching on some food, and a some
madman with a camera came along and started taking snaps of you
doing so?

If I were to take any photos in future at a social, I'd only do it
if and when invited to do so, by groups or individuals there.

The party was held at the City's Council House - my first view of
the interior which I thought was very impressive for a civic
building. The Gents loos were very good too ... even better than
John Lewis', which are among the best in Nottingham, if you're ever
taken short.

Been following X Factor myself as it's one of the few TV shows these days that gets near to the good old fashioned Saturday night variety entertainment. As it headed towards the semi-finals I honestly thought the final would be with the two kids and either a good female adult singer or that male group. Shame the kids were eventually voted out, but that fantastic voice of Alexandra's! In the end a well deserved win!

Hi Kevin ~ I thought the male group, JLS, was fantastic especially in the finals. I wasn't so fond of the young Irish lad, but I think he's got a great future ahead for him.
