I loved the ending. I’m glad she changed her mind and didn’t feel tied to her first plan for the last word{s}.

Wish I could watch but I won’t be home for it. I hope it will be available on-line later of they will rerun it soon.

It took me a few tries but I managed to see the video. Not any new information here, but I still want to see the whole show.

“The Oprah Winfrey Show” comes on at 4pm EST and last an hour. looking at the info for the show for today it only states tht Oprah will be in Scotland. It doesn’t mention any other guest. So a great part of her show (hopefully all of it) will be her talking with JK. I think If you’re in Colorado it would 2pm (but ck 4pm also). I’m so excited about the two of them getting together because they both are very charitable ladies who have come from rags to riches and both tear up at sensitive issues. I have Dish Netwk and can tape it while I’m at work. My remote may be the first thing I grab when I get home from work after my bowl of popcorn. OOOOHHHH I’M SOOOO EXCITED!
