Beautiful puzzle, beautiful story. I was not aware of this aspect of her life. Of course, this was during the time when Hollywood controlled the lives of its stars and you only heard what they dictated, true or not.

Excellent image and wonderful story with a super title. Thank you. My granddaughter's favourite school subject has always been science, but at almost 10 years old she hasn't decided what she'd like to be when she grows up -- to either follow in her uncle's footsteps and be a biomedical engineer, or to be a pop star, lol.

The world needs more female scientists!

I am reminded of the time decades ago when my sister was in university and couldn't decide whether to be a plant biologist or a dancer, and my mother told her, "You can be both, but first be a biologist and then be a dancer." She actually became a physician and then when she could afford it she built a mirrored studio with a barre in her home. Do you think my granddaughter would follow my recommendation to first be a biomedical engineer and then be a pop star?
#11: Norma Dee (norm0908) on Sep 16, 2013
When you look at pop stars today, it is very discouraging. Sadly, so many become jaded drug addicts with no morals. I would strongly encourage bio-medical engineering. At least in that field lives can be saved.

life is different for each of us, and it depends on the individual. I would say first find peace with yourself, then go from there. after that, whatever happens happens.

Fabulous puzzle. Terrific story. Great comments.

I think I learn more here than any other site on the internet.

Hey Lollipop? Your granddaughter must be about 19 now. Has she decided yet between biomedical engineer and pop star? Inquiring minds want to know!
#25: Jill Tallmer (Yidl) on Aug 6, 2022
This is stunning
#26: Lollipop (lollipop) on Aug 10, 2022
Oh my goodness, Valerie, what fun to find your question almost ten years later! Yes, my granddaughter will be 19 next month. She has a different plan now. She earned loads of prizes, awards, and scholarships at her high school graduation last year, including the overall achievement award for various courses in Equity and Social Justice. At the moment she plans to become a clinical psychologist and is heading into second year undergrad at McGill U in the honours psych program, having decided against neuroscience, but she allows for a possible change in her path before grad school, potentially environmental or immigration law, i.e. some other professional pursuit that will help people. (I have said since she was a toddler that she has the kindest heart I know.) As for being a pop star, Covid put a pretty big dent in her aspirations and her ability to follow through at a critical time, but she still sings and is a songwriter. Her mom, my daughter, organized a recording session for her as her high school graduation gift, so she now has some of her songs on Spotify to join the less professional videos from her younger years on YouTube.

I like/enjoy everything about this puzzle. Just so lovely, Kristen! It was also fun to "catch up" on your Grand's accomplishments, Lollipop! Talk about a feel good puzzle and feel good comments!
