Unless you've been living under a rock lately, you've probably heard about Susan Boyle, the ordinary lass with the extraordinary voice. She wowed the judges on Britain's Got Talent back on April 11th. Talk about judging a book by its cover. At first everyone thought she was a joke, but then she opened her mouth and this beautiful sound came out. What you may not know about Susan is that she's from Blackburn, Scotland, 10 miles west of Aberdeen. I love this picture of her because it reminds me so much of the Aberdonians we got to know during our time there, a little shy but warm and friendly, hearty people who lack all pretension. Well done, Susan!
