Story, Page A8 TUESDAY, DECEMBER 2, 2014 POST REGISTER A 2 people talk LONDON (AP) — The magnif- icent and shy singer Susan Boyle has her first boyfriend at age 53 — a Connecticut doctor she met on her recent U.S. tour who may soon visit her in Scot- land. “That’s the plan,” Boyle’s spokeswoman, Nicola Phil- lips, said Monday. “She met someone when she was in America and the idea is that he can come here.” Boyle and the doctor met at a hotel in Clearwater, Fla., Phil- lips said, adding that Boyle is “definitely” happy to have met someone. The church volunteer from a small Scottish town became a global sensation when she sang the “Les Miserables” number “I Dreamed a Dream” on TV contest “Britain’s Got Talent” in 2009. At first she seemed uncomfortable on stage, but she silenced skeptics as soon as she started to sing. ‘Cake Boss’ admits driving while impaired in NYC NEW YORK (AP) — “Cake Boss” Buddy Valastro admitted Monday to driving while impaired, saying he’d learned a valu- able lesson from his arrest last month. “One is too many, and that’s what I’m going to prac- tice” when it comes to drinking before getting behind the wheel, the reality TV star said after pleading guilty to driving impaired, which is a viola- tion, not a crime. birthdays Actress Cathy Lee Crosby is 70.

NEW YORK (AP) — The lyrics of two early unrecorded Bob Dylan songs are going on the auction block. Christie’s says the typed lyrics being offered Thursday include handwritten annotations. The original 1962 “Talkin Folklore Center” manuscript could fetch $40,000 to $60,000. The “Go Away You Bomb” lyrics from 1963 could bring $30,000 to $50,000. Dylan gave the lyrics to the founder of the legendary Folklore Center in Greenwich Village. Izzy Young produced Dylan’s first important concert in New York at the Carnegie Chapter Hall on Nov. 4, 1961. Dylan wrote “Talkin” after Young asked him to write a song about the Folklore Center store. “Go Away You Bomb” was written for an unpublished book Young was compiling of anti-nuclear songs. Sale proceeds will support Young’s current venture, the Folklore Centrum in Stockholm, Sweden. today’s quiz Isaac Asimov’s Super Quiz Subject: DRAGONS (e.g., The only mythological animal on the Chinese calendar.
