The celebrity birthdays just keep on coming during the “Frog Days of Fall”. It’s hard to believe after all of her hit songs, awards and international fame, Taylor Swift is only 22 years old today! For such a young woman, she seems to have songwriting talents and show business savvy beyond her years. Her new “Speak Now Tour-Live” CD/DVD debuted last month, just in time for holiday gift giving.
