Congratulations to Adele for sweeping the 2012 Grammys.  I was out living my life so I didn’t see any of the awards ceremony, but I will say this – I’ve met Adele on two occasions and she was so nice both times that it warms my heart.  I could not be happier for her and I wish her continued success!  She’s so talented and worthy of all the accolades she receives.  It makes you wonder why we bother wasting energy on untalented hacks when we’ve got treasures out there like Adele!  Change begins with YOU!
