Did You Know?


Faith Shawn is supposed to give herself a shot of insulin for her diabetes, but she gives the shot in a vein in her forearm. Diabetics take insulin shots in subcutaneous tissue. There is no fat in the forearm, therefore she would not have taken a shot of insulin there. See more »


Faith Shawn: Get in. Get in. I was afraid you wouldn't recognize me.
LeAnn Rimes: Are you kidding?
Faith Shawn: Get in. My lord child. You are slow. We got a lot of ground to cover.

What about a DVD?
19 June 2006 | by (Devon, UK) – See all my reviews

I watched this movie on TV in the middle of summer, and really enjoyed the characters, narration, dialogue and songs. For me, the tone was spot on - neither light nor heavy. I thought the Grandma character was rather special. True, Father Christmas appears, but it will be a shame if showings are limited to the Christmas period. I found this title edifying and uplifting, and was most disappointed to find there was no DVD.

How about it, you folk who can correct this deficiency? I don't have a music collection, but did look on the Internet for LeAnn Rimes CDs to hear more of her work. These cost somewhat more than the average price I pay for a DVD, so I will be checking the sites at intervals for special offers.
