Whatever you can...

I know it is easy to have 'aid fatigue', but if you have been watching the news, reading the paper - you know how desperate matters are for the people, the children and mothers in particular, of Somalia. I know times are economically a bit techy in the West of late, but we are not dying, our children are not dying - by the hundreds, by the thousand. I urge you to find it in your heart and pocket to donate whatever you can - these are my go to people for desperate situations around the world.

I am someone's mother; thank you from me and someone else's mother.

Helen Mirren Has 'Body Of The Year' At 66: Actress Tops L.A. Fitness Poll

What do David Beckham and Helen Mirren have in common? Aside from being two famous Brits, they also have the most desirable bodies. That's right, 66-year-old Dame Helen Mirren has the hottest bod in Hollywood.

The Oscar-winning actress was named “Body of the Year" by 2,000 people who were apart of a L.A. Fitness survey. She beat model Elle MacPherson, who came in a not-even-close second place, singer Nicole Scherzinger, Kelly Brook, who came in third, and even Jennifer Lopez, who came in fourth place. The Dame even bested Pippa Middleton, Kate Middleton's little sister, who came in eighth place with only four percent of the vote.

Mirren’s win should came as no surprise to people who have seen pictures of the Dame topless in New York Magazine. Looks like Mirren's proving that age is certainly nothing but a number.

As for the hottest male bodies? Well, soccer stud David Beckham came out on top, putting him ahead of actors Daniel Craig and Johnny Depp in second and third place respectively.

Helen Mirren is currently set to film the controversial Phil Spector biopic, starring Al Pacino as the famed music producer. The actress will play Spector's defence attorney Linda Kenney Baden.

I love this century!
