  1. I just want to thank you for all of this. My name is Mary Dobish. I am a 60-year-old middle school counselor, married with two grown children, and I live in Gambrills, Maryland, between Baltimore and DC. I love Susan Boyle and have been following her career since I first saw her on You Tube. I am especially proud of her now as she has overcome some obstacles and is now singing better than ever on the BGT tour. I would like to remain in touch with you, so that I can learn any current news about her plans to come to the US. Thanks so much.

  4. I really enjoyed an outsiders view of West Lothian. Living in Canada, but having been born, brought up and worked in and around the area, I can actually picture your journeys.

    I smiled when you said the bus driver couldn't identify Bridge Street in Bathgate: those of us who know the town only recognise the streets by places of interest, eg "The street where the baths (public pool) are, or the street where Boots (the drug store) is. I'm not making this up!

    Thank you for allowing me to revisit my youth.

  5. Thank you for the pictures. I think I wrote on this yesterday but it didn't show. Hope you see this one. You did a great job! Thank you sooo much. I hope you got to meet the Priest and I'm glad you saw Jackie and her stopping ground friends there.

    Thank you! I greatly enjoyed reading your blog, and I loved your wonderful pictures. I've been one of Susan's millions of enthusiastic fans since her audition wowed me in Mid-April.

  7. Dear Leslie: I am thoroughly enjoying my vicarious journey with you, as you allow me to absorb your experiences with Susan's customary surroundings. I have recommended your blessingblackburn site to numerous other Susan Boyle fans, as I blog on various sites. Here's hoping they "tune in" to enjoy your gifted writing along with me. You certainly are not "hiding your candle under a bushel". Thank you, and your husband, for lovingly sharing your travels...for all the world to enjoy. May God continue to bless your efforts to introduce us to the world of Susan Boyle. ~Trish (Pat Pierce) CA USA
