    ????????                        CURE FOR AIDS?                  ????????????
             By MARK SCHOOFS


The startling case of an AIDS patient who underwent a bone marrow transplant to treat leukemia is stirring new hope that gene-therapy strategies on the far edges of AIDS research might someday cure the disease.

The patient, a 42-year-old American living in Berlin, is still recovering from his leukemia therapy, but he appears to have won his battle with AIDS. Doctors have not been able to detect the virus in his blood for more than 600 days, despite his having ceased all conventional AIDS medication. Normally when a patient stops taking AIDS drugs, the virus stampedes through the body within weeks, or days.
[Dr. Gero Hutter] Sixten Koerper

Dr. Gero Hütter isn't an AIDS specialist, but he 'functionally cured' a patient, who shows no sign of the disease.

"I was very surprised," said the doctor, Gero Hütter.

The breakthrough appears to be that Dr. Hütter, a soft-spoken hematologist who isn't an AIDS specialist, deliberately replaced the patient's bone marrow cells with those from a donor who has a naturally occurring genetic mutation that renders his cells immune to almost all strains of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.

The development suggests a potential new therapeutic avenue and comes as the search for a cure has adopted new urgency. Many fear that current AIDS drugs aren't sustainable. Known as antiretrovirals, the medications prevent the virus from replicating but must be taken every day for life and are expensive for poor countries where the disease runs rampant. Last year, AIDS killed two million people; 2.7 million more contracted the virus, so treatment costs will keep ballooning.

While cautioning that the Berlin case could be a fluke, David Baltimore, who won a Nobel prize for his research on tumor viruses, deemed it "a very good sign" and a virtual "proof of principle" for gene-therapy approaches. Dr. Baltimore and his colleague, University of California at Los Angeles researcher Irvin Chen, have developed a gene therapy strategy against HIV that works in a similar way to the Berlin case. Drs. Baltimore and Chen have formed a private company to develop the therapy.

Back in 1996, when "cocktails" of antiretroviral drugs were proved effective, some researchers proposed that all cells harboring HIV might eventually die off, leading to eradication of HIV from the body -- in short, a cure. Those hopes foundered on the discovery that HIV, which integrates itself into a patient's own DNA, hides in so-called "sanctuary cells," where it lies dormant yet remains capable of reigniting an infection.

But that same year, researchers discovered that some gay men astonishingly remained uninfected despite engaging in very risky sex with as many as hundreds of partners. These men had inherited a mutation from both their parents that made them virtually immune to HIV.

The mutation prevents a molecule called CCR5 from appearing on the surface of cells. CCR5 acts as a kind of door for the virus. Since most HIV strains must bind to CCR5 to enter cells, the mutation bars the virus from entering. A new AIDS drug, Selzentry, made by Pfizer Inc., doesn't attack HIV itself but works by blocking CCR5.

About 1% of Europeans, and even more in northern Europe, inherit the CCR5 mutation from both parents. People of African, Asian and South American descent almost never carry it.

Dr. Hütter, 39, remembered this research when his American leukemia patient failed first-line chemotherapy in 2006. He was treating the patient at Berlin's Charité Medical University, the same institution where German physician Robert Koch performed some of his groundbreaking research on infectious diseases in the 19th century. Dr. Hütter scoured research on CCR5 and

He was treating the patient at Berlin's Charité Medical University, the same institution where German physician Robert Koch performed some of his groundbreaking research on infectious diseases in the 19th century. Dr. Hütter scoured research on CCR5 and consulted with his superiors.

Finally, he recommended standard second-line treatment: a bone marrow transplant -- but from a donor who had inherited the CCR5 mutation from both parents. Bone marrow is where immune-system cells are generated, so transplanting mutant bone-marrow cells would render the patient immune to HIV into perpetuity, at least in theory.

There were a total of 80 compatible blood donors living in Germany. Luckily, on the 61st sample he tested, Dr. Hütter's colleague Daniel Nowak found one with the mutation from both parents.

To prepare for the transplant, Dr. Hütter first administered a standard regimen of powerful drugs and radiation to kill the patient's own bone marrow cells and many immune-system cells. This procedure, lethal to many cells that harbor HIV, may have helped the treatment succeed.

The transplant specialists ordered the patient to stop taking his AIDS drugs when they transfused the donor cells, because they feared the powerful drugs might undermine the cells'
ability to survive in their new host. They planned to resume the drugs once HIV re-emerged in the blood.

But it never did. Nearly two years later, standard tests haven't detected virus in his blood, or in the brain and rectal tissues where it often hides.

The case was presented to scientists earlier this year at the Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections. In September, the nonprofit Foundation for AIDS Research, or amFAR, convened a small scientific meeting on the case. Most researchers there believed some HIV still lurks in the patient but that it can't ignite a raging infection, most likely because its target cells are invulnerable mutants. The scientists agreed that the patient is "functionally cured."

Caveats are legion. If enough time passes, the extraordinarily protean HIV might evolve to overcome the mutant cells' invulnerability. Blocking CCR5 might have side effects: A study suggests that people with the mutation are more likely to die from West Nile virus. Most worrisome: The transplant treatment itself, given only to late-stage cancer patients, kills up to 30% of patients. While scientists are drawing up research protocols to try this approach on other leukemia and lymphoma patients, they know it will never be widely used to treat AIDS because of the mortality risk.

      In just four days it will be my Brokeback Mountain two year anniversary..   Something that has turned
my life on its ear.  I have gotten thru the devastation of the first several viewings of the movie.  I cried
and listened to the cd.  And went back and saw the movie again five more times at the theatre.
      Then I went to the local video shop and put my order in for the dvd when it came in...I then searched
the internet for anything I could find to give me a further connection to the movie...
      That is the beginning.  All the wonderful trips I have made, and all the glorious friends I have made.
That is the rest of the story...I have gained what I consider brothers and sisters, and a son.  Through all
of this...What a glorious outcome from two young men, that went up on a mountain, with 1000 sheep.
It has made a world of people into a family.

          My grandmothers family settled Texas...so they were from everywhere....The last few living from
  Mexia, Stamford, to all points.. 

          I guess I could tell you the story of my grandmothers connection to Cynthia Ann Parker. 
          I am sure you have all heard the story of the capture of the white women and children by the
   Native americans from the fort in Texas.  They were taken from fort Parker which is the family name.
   The movie "The Searchers" and many others of that same story being based on that event...
          The town that Leslies story is set in "Quanah" is about the young son of Cynthia Ann Parker, who
   grew up to become one of the most famous Indian chiefs who fought against the white settlers. 
   Eventually he surrendered, and moved his people to fort Sill Oklahoma.  When he was living there he
   finally moved his mothers body there as well before he died.

all the different candidates.  The media is sick to death of it, it seems.  So the only thing they can find now
is to try and create fights among the candidates in order to have something to say about it.
     I am beginning to think that is what is causing all the division between candidates, parties, and people.
How everyone got to the point of polarization.  Its you are either for me or against me attitude, and it is
filtering down into every single issue in our daily lives.  Its very hard on us as individuals and as a society as well.

Preserving the environmental integrity of the forest is our first and foremost priority at Pacific Tree Climbing Institute.


We offer guided tree climbing expeditions in magnificent trees found in the legendary forests of the Pacific Northwest .  Our purpose is simple: we hope to demonstrate that the remaining old growth groves have greater value as intact forests than as lumber. If by facilitating your visit to our endangered eco-systems you find yourself inspired by the beauty and wonder of the trees, then we will have succeeded in our purpose.

Whether you are a novice to the outdoors or seasoned adventurer, tree climbing is an activity that will fully enrich your life. Once you have climbed into the reaches of the canopy, you will experience something truly unique to the world of outdoor adventures.  Our climbing expeditions are well suited for families, friends and couples. Leaving this experience, you will have a new sense of trust in your self confidence and understand your capabilities. Whether you are an employer seeking interactive team-building activity designed to gain confidence and trust in your employees or a teacher looking for the perfect opportunity for environmental education, Pacific Tree Climbing Institute is the right choice!

Post by: ifyoucantfixit on January 04, 2008, 10:35:40 pm

        I started today listening to my cd of Brokeback Mountain.  I realized how that music can take me
back to the very feelings I had in the beginning.  The tears and ache in my heart.  It is such a palpable
thing.  It is like posession.  I don't know the why or the wherefore that it has over me.  I thought I had
gotten to the point where I wasn't going to be hit like that again...But here I am again in a flood of tears.
         I started reading some of the  older posts.  Some from right after the BBQ.  I read Chrissi's post
about how she still had the feeling of euphoria, even three weeks later. My heart smiled.   I read how Lee
was having a hard time focusing at home and at work.  I understood and my  heart smiled. 
Later I found a post by Jack Stephens, and he is such a sweet and wonderful guy.  My heart smiled. 
Then It came to me.  The feelings I now have when I listen to the music, is related to the Brokies I have
met.  It is now the sadness I feel..Missing the people I have come to know and found so dear.  I have
had such an experience this year, as to have rooted itself into my psyche.  I can no longer separate the
movie, the music, and the people from each other.  It is all one large whole.  Made up of bits and pieces of the
puzzle.  Every person, every post on Bettermost, every song.  Every sad story and every Wonderful new
blessing that people have experienced, is in there.... 
        I just want to say how greatful and blessed I am to have gotten to know all of you and shared this
unique and soul shaking experience with....I love each and every one of you....
                                                              Thank you from the bottom of my heart.       Janice

        People with Grandparents still living.

      As I am ever trying it seems.  These days as to find anything that i could put here that would interest
others...

      I was over at Trumans place, and he posted a notice about his friend that had died.. An older man
who had evidently lived a rather colorful life.  It set me to thinking...I wonder if they had ever set a tape,
and asked him questions about his life.  Thereby having a recording forever of the man and his thoughts and
feelings. 
      I had a grandmother who I was very connected to.  She used to have me come and visit during summers, and we used to do her sewing and craft things together.. She was a prize winning crochet maker.  She tatted and made lace as well.  She made beautiful handmade quilts, and told many many stories..Old stories, that
I never heard from anyone else.  She had this one very long poem that she used to tell about a little girl at
her grandmothers house...Of course I always asked her to tell me that one...at least once while i was there.
      So back on topic...I just have wished and wished over the years since she passed.  That I had of made a
recording of her and that story...as well as many other things she used to tell me.
      She was the one that had first told me the story of Cynthia Ann Parker, and her son Quanah Parker.  She
was a teacher and knew all the family history as well...Now that she is gone, There is only sketches in my
mind of it all.  A recording would have been so valuable...Plus just to hear her voice again would be like
magic.. I dont even have a recording of my mother either....Those are irreplacable things..So if you get the
chance and are so inclined..maybe it would be a good thing for you to do also...

       Sure wish I could have...That was before the electronic wave, and it wasnt so easily done.

Wonderful advice, Janice. Years ago I made a video of my grandmother and her sisters talking about times when they were kids. There are occasional fits of laughter that only the sisters shared. No crying. Even tho they lived through hard times with a mother who died in childbirth and a mean alcoholic father. My grandmother didn't cry. She sometimes told me that she wished she could cry.

I'm so thankful to have the video, so good for suggesting it, Janice.

that is a good idea, Janice. One thing I have noticed that I already regret is that there are very very few pics of me growing up. My son has some bitterness toward my siblings and mother about it.....because they never had the idea that someone would want to know what I looked like growing up. So from about ten til after I was married there are about six pics of me. I guess it was a good thing I was never kidnapped or anything....they would have been hard pressed to find a pic to put on the poster! LOL!

Of course now I am the photographer in the family but since he has started asking I have tried to make a point of including a picture of myself in every situation.

On a side note; I wish I knew how to TAT!!

        I am making a direct 180 here from the type of things I usually discuss.  I wonder how many of you are
still in the league with the Writers guild now.?  Do you think that this is about big business trying to choke the
lowly writers, and not pay them their proper due.  Or is it the Big Business trying yet again to charge for things
we have previously gotten for free.  They will have the logical reason to up the prices of all different forms of
things we are using. Myfirst reaction, way back in the stone age.  When they were negotiating for the right
to put cable into effect.  They were selling shares thru investment.  In order to get working capital.  Now we
are seeing the end of free through the air television.  It will be impossible to get any television without cable,
satelite, or some such connection to the market.  Someone may correct me if i am wrong here...
       What is next.  What do we further have to be tantalized and charged for.  There is a point to where
people either are so addicted to a service, that like drug addicts they will pay whatever the server  charges.
In order to have their particular form of (crack),  be it televised shows or internet search and  conversation.
        I am sure we now pay for everything from cradle to grave.  From water and food, to disposal of our
wastes.  It is all starting to become so expensive that many people with a full time job, can not make a decent\
living, and pay for the basic needs... It is my considered opinion that if this country is fractured and destroyed.
It may and probably will have more to do with corporate greed, than any perceived opponant.  Such as Al Kaida, or Iran.  It will be from Greed..Plain and simple greed.
        We have been pampered and cajoled into desiring things we do not need.  Such as wii, and i pods, and
smaller an smaller electronics.  Fancier and fancier this or that...Not needs,but simpy things that we like. but don't really need. 
         Don't get me wrong, I am just as guilty of this greed of habit as the next person.  I am speaking to you from a laptop computer, not attached physicaly to a cable or land line.. However I wonder with the present state  of new and better gadgets.  How long can we continue to use our disposable income toward the items, without reaching further and further into the necessary items of life.??     Will we someday become just sit at home users of communication or entertainment.. having no income left to go out into the real world and meet and get to know our fellows...?     Just asking......
Title: Re: Notes for Janice!!
Post by: injest on January 08, 2008, 09:11:16 am
nodding.

I agree, Janice. One thing about the continual push for these electronics is that they expect you to just throw stuff out...disposable...everything is disposable. Even when you find something that works for any reasonable time you are 'expected' to want the new and better! And the old working model is either thrown away or left cluttering up your house.

cell phones are the worst IMO. I know people that are always getting new ones cause the new one is 'cooler'

we are a greedy people.

Title: Re: Notes for Janice!!
Post by: BelAir on January 08, 2008, 02:08:32 pm
right. but i think sometimes sci fi is like that - takes very possible future realities to the extreme to illustrate what may happen if we don't change our ways?  but I am not a real sci fi buff or anything, just blabbing more or less.

       Good day today, Bettermostians.  I dont really know what I will have to say today, so I thought I would start
the day with a cartoon..I have gotten into the political satire humor now, since the campaign is cranking up/

                    This one gave me quite a chuckle
(http://i209.photobucket.com/albums/bb162/ifyoucantfixit/cartoons_04leapfrog.jpg)




        It is just wonderful to see the process at work..Shoving the pollsters in the snoot and making the real differences..  Not letting the media make all the decisions.. Reading our minds before we know our own decisions.
I hope this really continues.  The race gets a full across the board decision made.  Not just the beltway boys
telling you what to think and how to want the choices that they have pre decided for you...

Post by: Kelda on January 12, 2008, 01:41:11 pm
        I started today listening to my cd of Brokeback Mountain.  I realized how that music can take me
back to the very feelings I had in the beginning.  The tears and ache in my heart.  It is such a palpable
thing.  It is like posession.  I don't know the why or the wherefore that it has over me.  I thought I had
gotten to the point where I wasn't going to be hit like that again...But here I am again in a flood of tears.
         I started reading some of the  older posts.  Some from right after the BBQ.  I read Chrissi's post
about how she still had the feeling of euphoria, even three weeks later. My heart smiled.   I read how Lee
was having a hard time focusing at home and at work.  I understood and my  heart smiled. 
Later I found a post by Jack Stephens, and he is such a sweet and wonderful guy.  My heart smiled. 
Then It came to me.  The feelings I now have when I listen to the music, is related to the Brokies I have
met.  It is now the sadness I feel..Missing the people I have come to know and found so dear.  I have
had such an experience this year, as to have rooted itself into my psyche.  I can no longer separate the
movie, the music, and the people from each other.  It is all one large whole.  Made up of bits and pieces of the
puzzle.  Every person, every post on Bettermost, every song.  Every sad story and every Wonderful new
blessing that people have experienced, is in there.... 
        I just want to say how greatful and blessed I am to have gotten to know all of you and shared this
unique and soul shaking experience with....I love each and every one of you....
                                                              Thank you from the bottom of my heart.       Janice

        Ok folks:  I am here to clarify a situation that I accidentally have encountered.  I have been using as my signature,
a beautiful picture as you have all seen.  I was under the impression that it was by our friend here on Bettermost.. TOAST!!
I had asked him if I might use the picture as a signature piece.  He said that I could use it.  Then later he asked me if could
show him the original.  I only had the downsized version.  He then returned me a new inquiry if i might have known that
it might be someone elses work...To which I had to say, of course not.  I had totally assumed it was his work. 
         Now yesterday some of you may have seen the the post that was made from Jimmy knash.  He said that the picture
was indeed a picture he himself had painted.  He even showed me the sketch before he had added the color.. The obvious
incontrovertable answer was that he was the creater of this beautiful piece of art.. It is not a manip, with a piece of software,
but a genuine piece of executed art...
          I have told him that I would like to get this situation ironed out to both of our satisfaction..If he wishes me to
remove that picture from my signature, I will do so.  Absolutely.. Or whatever he would like me to do, i will.
           So now my first thing I am doing is:: to let you all know about this situation.  Allowing you to get the right
knowledge, as to the true creator of the beautiful piece.                  
                                                              Sorry for all the hassle and misconceptions caused          janice..

Janice, that is a beautiful painting. And I did have a strong feeling that it was painted by hand and not manipped.

I was going to ask if there was a non BBM story section here where I could post part of a story I've started writing so people can give suggestions and what not so it doesn't get lost in my Blog thread. But then I realised I should look my self. And there is, so nevermind. I'll post it there.

Sincerely, Kat.

         yes honey there is.  it is in the Creative Writers corner.  You can place anything there that you want to.  Story,
poem, or anything of that nature.  And of course you can put anything you wish in your own blog.  That is what it is for.

         Of course it has to adhere to the guidelines of all the advertizers and Bettermost.. Those are pretty loose.  If you
want a full accounting, pm either the mods in that forum, or Ellemeno, or Philip in order to make sure.     good luck honey.

I sense there is a great deal of wisdom in your spirit and I need to know what you think of this..

ALL of my close girlFriends in RealLife can't handle what is happening to me right now and in there own ways are distancing themselves from me for reasonable reasons like extra work, etc..
But one said that I am frightening her.  She is into Reike and is protected against 'unfriendlies' as is everyone here...

I'm glad that has not happened on BetterMost.

So, my dear Butterfly, What's Up?    I asked the One Who Is and I was told that YOU would know..  U R LUV'd

If you feel pressured in anyway then forget I asked.   When the time is right, the answer will just 'appear' in your mind and you can share it with me~!

            Honey i can't tell you for certain.  But my first thought would be.  General human nature.  If a person has
a different mindset.  It is often difficult for them to understand the things they are unfamiliar with.  If they haven't
seen the things that you say you have seen.  Then there is always going to be a large portion of skepticism involved.
What you are discussing tends to have a mystical element.  Many people are not comfortable with that reference
either...In the past people accused people with experiences like that as bewitched, or posessed.  There is lot of  different reasons for the whole thing.  in short, it is just a lack of understanding...you will need to be patient
with them..They probably have a great deal of fear involved.    patience would be my advice.  Try not to
be confrontational.  As you accept them, and you act normally then perhaps they will start to accept you as well..
             There is no reason why you can not use both the therapy they like and have your own beliefs as well.
There are as we know, many people that would think of the Reiki therapy as odd as well...We need to be tolerant.

Thanks for all that you have helped me with and thanks for directing me to Scott's non smoking blog. The support here on Bettermost has been awesome, wonderful, and a bit surreal thanks to people like you!

Every time I hear this one I am in his car riding back from Lombard street through a deserted San Fransisco. It's about 2am. My Head is on his shoulder his arm is around me and he is softly singing along with George on the radio.
I was so happy, warm and content.
On a side note, he had his first rodeo event yesterday. He didn't place but he held his own. I'm proud, just wish I could have been there to see it.

Hi Janice,

Love your guardianship and or adoption papers. Maybe if I was a tad younger, I might want to sign up. :laugh:

We had 2 great nights of chat. Yay!!!! I had fun both nights, and it was nice meeting and chatting with so many Brokies at one time! Wow- it was great!!

Wish I could chat tonight, but got to get up early in the morning for work. Will talk to you later. To add, that was a lovely poem that you put on the Sending up a Prayer of Thanks page. :)

I'm loving the Rod Stewart concert here, Janice. He's the mega rockstar, huh? I still have several of his albums -- I like the one that looks like a shot glass.

i
          Thanks Deb for the interest in the adoption thingy...They better behave, or they will have to dance....
I am glad you liked my poem Deb.  Thank you very much.        :-*

      Shasta I am glad you liked the Rod Stewart music videos..I have always been a big fan of his.  I have rather eclectic
taste in music.. I like nearly all music.. The only exception is Rap...not much for that.. I think M/M is a veritable
genius.  But i dont even like all of his stuff.  I am trying to find things that will be different than just the regular
things that normally get posted.. kind of mix it up too. 

          So thanks to all for coming by...

Did you see Rod kicking around the soccer ball with Ronnie in the Faces vid.  Yeah, if you are a fan then you know that his first love was soccer..But he wasnt as good at soccer as he was to rockin.  I saw him at the Cow Palace in San Fransisco back in the '70's.  Have no albums though.

                                    They say

                     The world has gone upside down.
                      We are waiting at your door
                      To see if the things we've heard,
                      Are truth or facts unwound.
                     
                      They say the sun won't rise tomorrow
                      it has perished on its route they say.
                      Lay down to rest with tired eyes.
                      So quiet and in need of rest

                      The sun forgot to rise today
                      While on its daily tour.
                      They say it has lost its way
                      It wil not rise again, today.

                      We still are waiting for the sun
                      To bask in its light
                      It needs to come around so we
                      can lay and rest as is our daily right.

                      They say the sun won't come out today
                      It is staying way down under.
                      It is headed for the place it started.
                      In order to warm and heat that distant way.

                      The sun won't be seen again, they say
                      It has lost its light
                      The sun is gone, for all and all
                      We will no longer see it play

                      The sun will never rise again
                      it will stay down under
                      it will stay at rest for all our days
                      While we  who love it deeply pray.

          Well Chuckie to tell the truth, im starving right now.  How are you sweetie pie.?

      jess you sweet thing,, how are you these days?   
       Truman how would i get by without you.....and dear joeann and dev..you mean so much         me more than you can ever know.
      I have been in contact with Scott he is struggling with some personal issues, but he is

        working it  out.  But i just want you all to know  that he is throughout it all remained smoke free.  He is almost three weeks now.........Amazing isnt it how time flies.  This has been such a difficult time for all of us here.  It is difficult for anyone dealing with other things more so.  So lets
      just take a moment of silent thought, for those now that need our prayers, 

                                         Things to do
      There is something else that i have begun thinking of lately since Heath has passed.  i too
       have had the total displeasure of having to go thru all the sundry detritus of people we love
       who have died.  We end up keeping from all that detritus, some of the oddest things.
       Why do we keep what we do and rid ourselves of the other things that seem to first
       glance much more important.  And why do we keep these particular items.?

        When my mother died, I had to go thru all of her personal items, and the contents of a large
        three bedroom home, and detatched two car garage.  Sorting out things giving away things
        And now i look back after all these years, and wonder about some of the things i kept, while
        discarding others.
         
        My brother died withing 14 mos of that time and i had to repeat that process over again.
        I had already done some of it before right after his first attempt at suicide.  But most of his
        stuff including his furniture was in storage, wherre i had placed it over two years previously.

        I still hadnt gotten rid of all my moms stuff when i had all of his to go thru and sort and
        find out what to do with that.  in the meantime, i have gotten to the point where doing
        all that is too difficult for me to do anymore.  So now all of those items, my mother, my 
         brother and my own things are stored for my kids to have to repeat that same rictual.   
         I am now placing that most horrendous of tasks on them.  And they will now have to
         deal with what i could not.  Its unfair and painful.  Making death worse than it has to
         be for the survivors.  And still we hoard mementos, and trivia.  i suppose it gives us a
         grounding point.  Some proof of where we came from, where we are, who we are, and
         how we too are ultimately going there as well.  I dont really know.  But this has ever been
         the way of the ones that loved and have been left, to do.  God bless you when it
         becomes your time, to deal, with this most difficult of lifes duties. 

         i guess this all just sounds like rambling, but its what i felt like saying...sorry if i made
         anyone feel worse.

          I have been wondering how to say anything that is of benefit.. I dont very often like
centering on myself.  I have posted mostly my interests, and likes and dislikes.  But i am not
sure what else that needs to be said.  There are times when i feel like the most important
thing i am, is what i do.  Not who i am.
          I have many strong opinions, some popular and some not.  Just like anyone else.  I have
never been shy about telling those.  I have always tried to be honest and at the same time,
to be kind and considerate.  I think that the world and our communities function better when'
opinions are expressed and decried.  It is how we reach a norm....Be patient i am going to
have a point here eventually.  However I dont think that the laws of discourse are ever meant
to allow attacks and anger when two parties that on ordinary subjects agree..When they finally
find and issue on which they do not agree.  The rules and regulations of propriety require that
we dont snipe and snark at each other in these times.  If we as true believers in a certain
thought and like mindedness cannot treat each other with kindness and respect.  Then how
can we ever expect that of arch enemies. 
       This most difficult of times, has seemingly started to creat such division and anger as
to cause serious harm to this place we all call home.
       It seems to me that there are those that have aneed to show that they are the most grevious.
In the most pain, and have the greatest loss.  There is no way you can measure such a thing.
everyone feels what they feel, and it is all valid.  To discount anothers grief at the showing of
your own is meanspirited.  To discount other peoples ideas about how to express that grief
summarily and offhanded.. is also condescending and rude.  I personally think we should all
be willing to accept that all others in this Brokeback Mountain universe are suffering, and in that
suffering, should be allowed to be fostered and cared for in the same way that we would wish
to be fostered and cared for during this most difficult of times.  Lets try to be understanding and
caring..Instead of sniping and hurtful...              its just my opinion......but its how i feel

Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate.
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date.
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimmed;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance, or nature's changing course, untrimmed;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade,
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest,
Nor shall death brag thou wanderest in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time though growest.
So long as men can breath or eyes can see,
So long lives this, and this gives life to thee.
-William Shakespeare, 1592.


This is the sonnet that Michelle Williams is said to have recited at the
private ceremony for only ten members of the family at the burial.

Hi Janice,

Hey, this is my very first visit to your notes thread. I'm a bit slow.

Brought my own eggs and ham and toast. Actually, that's lunch today. A bacon and egg toasted sandwich  :)
Very good source of energy (so I keep telling myself).
Ummm. I did save you some. With chips.
But it's going cold, so you'd better hurry.
(It's ok once in a while. .... You just have to make up for it with bran flakes every morning, and a celery stick and apple at night, for the next month or so).

Rob  :)

Sorry Janice, I thought I wnet back and checked it. O-well here is the link:



Iris DeMent is the youngest of 13 chillins from Arkansas (I think that is right) her father was an excellent fiddle player who put the fiddle up once he joined the church because he was told it was the instrument of the devil. She never heard him play.

        Well folksies, today is a new day, and i am bound to have the new way.  I got a call from a
friend, telling me we were still on a good plain and that it is all good.  So that is how I choose to
feel from now on.  The sad and woefilled time of the recent past, is past now.  I am choosing to
move on.

        Rob, thanks for stopping by.  I hope it becomes a habit here.  I have read your messages
over on Devs thread.  I think you are a nice  man and i am blessed to have you visit, any time.

        Thank you Truman , you are a doll to come and fix that.  My computer or my internet or some
thing wont let me do vids anymore.  I guess i have to take it to the puter hospital and have its
computer appendix removed.  It seems to have a puter belly ache.

        Chuck that is so sweet.  Thank you very much, and I love you tooooo.

          Lord god almighty what a mournful song.  I think that whoever had told her father he was
a sinner for playing a fiddle is paying in spiritual depths for that stupid remark.  I cannot fathom at
so many of the things that people have done.  In the name of god.  If god was truly that kind of
a god.  He would be a god unworthy of praise.  Why is it.  What makes people of certain religions
want to take, or sap, every last bit of joy from the life of others.     
          Wouldnt you think a god would want his children to be joyful.  Happy, and enjoy all the fruits
of his and their labors.  To sing and dance, and praise life.  To shout to the heaven how wonderful
life is, or can be.  I always wonder.

          Thank you darlin.  I loved that.  Her lovely vibrato voice is a thing to behold.

Why thank you ma'am for that real nice welcome.
And the sentiment is mutual.

Wow, how about that man having to stop playing because the fiddle was supposed to be evil.
If we ever have a thread on BetterMost dedicated to discussing religious bigotry, it would have to have special rules to allow heated exchanges and lots of bad language, I'm sure. And I'd find it hard to resist.

Good thing BetterMostians are nice people.

Hope you had a great day everyone  :)

       Well I have been talking about the Vagina Monologues with Kelsey.  She is going tonight,
to see this years production at her school.  Willamette University.  They do one every year.
        She will be coming home after the play, and we are going to do the chic chic European
thing and go to dinner late.  Looking forward to that greatly.

        If some of you have never seen the Vagina Monologues at all.  Here are some lincs to parts
of it on Youtube.  They are all college productions I think.  But you can see that some are
excellent, and others are just ok.  But you can get the idea.

-----------------

  Someone told me,, for those of you who have never had any exposure to a vagina.!!
Here is an introduction to it and how it interacts with the person it is a part of.

Here is Vagina 101 The Vagina Monologues.  (in no particular order)

Hi Janice,
Hope you're feeling better, and having a great weekend.
Just popped in to say hello.

Those links looked downright scary.
I mean ... Vagina Monologues ?
Probably a mis-type, I guess, but then I'm a very shy guy, so ...
(didn't dare click on any).

BTW, isn't it early hours of the morning for you ?

I'm having one of those quiet, lonely Sunday nights.
Had to say goodbye to a friend today, so feeling a bit 'friend'less.

You're probably asleep now. Catch up later?
 :)

to hear from you.  And guess what.  The Vagina Monologues is a play, and it is funny and
serious and informative.  It has a lot of very [plays with in a play]  And Janice lowers voice no one will know you clicked it but you.   Its ok to go on and listen to them.  Might be something
you would like to know there.  But if you choose not to do so.  Your choice.  I would never
pressure anyone to do anything they felt uncomfortable doing.

           I am very sorry to hear you are sad, and down.  I know it is very bad to lose a friend.

Good morning, Janice!

Hope you have a great Sunday.  :)

How was chat? I did everything I could think of and I still could not get into chat.

That puzzles me so much because I have never had one bit of trouble getting in.

I closed my connection and re-entered.
I downloaded a Java update.
I did a system restore.

All to no avail.

I may never be able to get into chat again. LOL.

What have you got planned for today? I have some typing to do and I'd like to bathe at least one dog and watch a movie. Whooooo---exciting day. LOL

Have fun. Talk to ya later, friend!  :)

Aha, well, if no-one will ever know.  ;D

Thanks for the hug, J.   I'm not sad and down about losing friend. Maybe a little numb, but I had to make the decision, so do feel a little bit anxious for her. Her daughter was very anti because they have only had each other for a long time, and were extremely close, but their relationship was suffering. Not a good situation. Oh well, we weren't that close anyway.

Hey, is everyone having trouble with chat? I don't go in there. Only because my typing is so slow it would hold everyone up ... or by the time I wrote something they'd have gone home. Plus, the security software checks everything, and some of the letters don't register on the page, so I have to keep back-tracking to fix it.

Hope everything is OK with you. How is your family?
Are you recovering from all the sadness?

I guess it must be great being your own moderator. It did seem a bit funny before, people not having that ownership of their own blog.
Hope you're not toooo tough  ;)

Thinking of you,
Rob  :)

Good Morning Dear Friend.  I hope you had a good weekend.  I think you know about the new addition to our family.  An 07 Seabring.  I feel so free today just knowing that my car is in the driveway and I can go and do anything I want again.  Yay!!   Its back to the Y for me.  Of course this also means I have to run all the errands to keep the household functioning, but thats fine.  Bob wakes up early, works hard, and drives back and forth to the office and home in sometimes grueling traffic.  I dont mind the errands so much.  Got lots to do though.  I am looking forward to seeing you in chat later today.  Love you sweetie!

           Morning to the whole of Bettermost.  I have hopes that the days will be better now.
I have belief that it will.  I am trying to move on and let the past be over.  We will see.  we will
see.  I have chosen to " let be. " Will see how that goes.  Sorry I have been such a downer lately.
 
           I promise to do better from now on.  It is beautiful and sunny here today.  the sky is
full of light clouds scattered from place to place.  The storms "coming in from the Pacific" are not advancing
today so far.  It seems that maybe spring may be coming.  Maybe so. 
           Good morning Rob, i am glad you are feeling ok now.  Chuck love the sweet little note.
I love you too.  Dev what can i say.  You guys have a sweet ride now for sure.  Hope everything
goes well from now on for you.   I look forward to seeing you again.  You know what to do

         Interesting factoid. from msnbc news

For the love of God, get it on!
Pastor tells married couples to make time for hanky-panky every day
   
Video
  Florida church issues sex challenge
Feb. 19: A Florida church challenges its married members to have sex each day for 30 days. WFLA's Katie Most viewed on msnbc.com
Doctors group backs medical marijuana

YBOR CITY, Fla. - A southwest Florida church issued a challenge for its married members this past Sunday: Hanky-panky every day. Relevant Church head pastor Paul Wirth says the 50 percent divorce rate was the catalyst for The 30-Day Sex Challenge.

"And that's no different for people who attend church," Wirth said. "Sometimes life gets in the way. Our jobs get in the way."

Oh, and the flip side of the challenge? No rolling in the sheets for the unwed.

Church member Tim Jones and his fiancée agreed to take on the challenge, though he acknowledges it'll be a tough month. But he added: "I think it's worth trying to find out other things about each other."

Janice, that article was in the Tampa Tribune about the Pator's sex challenge to his married couples in Ybor.  Ybor is a big night life hot spot.   The things you see go on there after 10pm, damn!  It resembles the 4th quarter in New Orleans.  Very much fun for the kids.  You know 25 and younger, but it can be just as dangerous.   The streets are blocked off at night as everybody, a mob, walks down the middle of the brick roads.  7th avenue is lined with exotic clothing and accessory stores, clubs, tattoo parlors, Theatres and restaurants.   Whenever we have out of town friends or family visit who like to party, we take them go to Ybor.    :)

I have seen just about everything.  Except for a dinosaur.  I was going to say public sex.  But no--
I have seen that too.  Which i believe I have posted here on the forum somewhere.  Not the
sex, but telling the story.


           Thanks Dev for the enlightenment on that little place of open partying and fun.  I would
have liked to have seen that at some time.  Oh well.......such is life

Hey Janice, thanks for posting that. I love Tito Puente's music. I had the chance to meet him briefly a long time ago. He was a friend of my uncle (who's a musician). However, the song featured in the video (Oye como va) is not salsa, it is a cha-cha-cha. A whole different genre.

           Sorry honey.  But over here we dont seem to differentiate.  all the latin music seems to
be grouped into that catagory.  No disrespect intended.  I thought the mambo was the dance
that was done to that kind of music.  Just like the samba is a dance etc.   I love all the latin dances
and the music.  I love Miami sound machine too.


        Oh my gosh it was great seeing you here Nat.  Absolutely the best.  ((((hugs))))

No need to apologize. I was just informing you. I took no offense. On the contrary, was delighted by the video. It's normal for some people to confuse the rythms. I confuse mambo with cha-cha-cha. Samba is also a music genre. When people say let's dance a samba or a mambo they're referring to dance to that music. The moves varies because the rythm is different.

Dev, I miss the old days of Ybor City before it became Tampa Party Central. Of course it was Gay Party Central first
and always just a little bit dangerous at nite. I really enjoyed walking the Historic District with real old time shops
and restaurants. Most of that is gone but I believe a few of the gems are still around.

James Taylor Sweet Baby James.  If I may share a memory....   We were on a car ride up the Garden State Parkway coming back from down the shore.  It was my dad driving my mom in the passenger seat and at least 4 of us kids in the back seat..  My brother, Earl though we are estranged not of my will, taught me the chorus to Sweet Baby James.  It was the first contemporary song I ever memorized the lyrics to.  I will never Forget it. NEvER  I wasnt 9 years old cuz thats the age I was when we moved down the shore all year round. 

Good night moonlight ladies
Rock-a-bye sweet baby James
Deep greens and blues are the colors I choose
wont you let me go down in my dreams
and rock-a-bye sweet baby James

Love you sweetie.

         I received a card from her.  In response to a condolence card that I had sent to her.
She said to thank all of you for your best wishes.
         Saying she would come back around whenever she feels up to it..I hope that is not
too far into the future..She is a very wonderful lady.  I hate to see her down like this.  But

        Shar Pei Boxer mix.. and the puppies are Shar Pei Boxer,/ bull terrior, boxer.  So they are half boxer, and 1/4 each shar pei
and terrier...But they all have the mamas face and wrinkles,,,She is such an amazing dog...

        There are six of them.. five gals and one boy.  Two fawn, two brindle, one black with brown, and one mostly black with
brindle highlights...But we were hoping for them to look and have the temperament of the mom...so far so good..They
do look like her...Except for they have a lot of the dads color...

          An old friend of mine sent this to me.. I thought i was worthy of posting here....

                   
How do you say good-bye?

It’s never easy. Good-bye is a great big, scary kind of a word.

It so easily stirs feelings of sadness, abandonment, and loss. It can make us feel alone and afraid even before we’ve said it; even before someone we care about has gone away. It’s such a final kind of word.

Some people go to great lengths to avoid it altogether.

When people they love are leaving, they pat them on the shoulder and tell them to have a great time. They never say good-bye.  They never say, “I’ll miss you a lot!” They never look them lovingly in the eye and say, “Thanks for being here.” And of course it certainly wouldn’t occur to them to share the particular memory of the departing person that so endeared you to him or her in the first place.

They’re just so bloody cheerful!

It’s as if your departure, or the departure of one about whom you have grown to love, is of no real consequence at all. Nope, life moves on. Nothing real gets exchanged, and they’ve missed a wonderful opportunity to have what I call a “GOOD” good-bye.  Lots of us miss those chances. We hide, afraid of the intense feelings of loss. Or perhaps we don’t have intense feelings of loss because where the person or place in question is concerned, we never really allowed ourselves to say “hello”.  You know what I mean.

How many of us have moved to a new town, or a new school, or a new job, and said – almost immediately: “I can’t STAND these people – I can’t get along with them at all.” Or: “I hate this place/this school/this town. I’ll never be happy here.”  Well, that behavior is pretty normal. It’s protective behavior. But it does mean that if it is the attitude you adopt, when it comes time to leave that school, town, job, or people, you won’t feel any deep sentiments of loss because you never decided to say hello in the first place.  This is the core of my philosophy about saying a GOOD Good-bye: you cannot say a GOOD good-bye unless you have first decided to say hello.

You don’t even have to be new to the area to miss out on saying hello. How many times have we all passed through our lives so beset with worries, deadlines, preoccupations, and fragments of past conversations that we’ve held but wished we’d said a different way ringing in our minds that we don’t notice anyone or anything around us? I certainly have, and this is normal, of course, for us all.  But if your head is chattering incessantly at us all the time in this way, how can we ever look up from what we are doing and see who and what is around us at the time?
 
This is what I’m talking about. How can you ever say good-bye if you never really saw anyone in the first place?


We will never master the fine art of saying a good good-bye unless we have taken the time to see one another; unless we can remind each otherto “rest for a moment on the forming edge of our lives [and] resist the headlong tumble into the next moment; until we can look into one another’s faces and see there communion: the reflection of our own eyes.”

You see, learning to SEE is a conscious choice; it is a decision we make.

So here’s my theory: Not only do all of us need the experience of being seen, of being smiled at and being told, “I see you”, but all of us need to offer that experience to those around us; for unless you’ve really SEEN someone, you’ll never be able to engage in a good good-bye.

Sometimes we feel shy about looking someone else in the eyes, smiling and saying, “I SEE you.” But there is nothing more important in the entire world than being seen, and being welcomed with a smile that says: I am so glad you are here.

Sometimes we feel shy about looking someone else in the eyes and smiling and saying, “I SEE you”. But there is nothing more important in the entire world than being seen, being welcomed with a smile that says: I am so glad you are here.

This is the secret of a good good-bye. You cannot engage in a heartfelt good-bye with someone you have never really seen, but once you have seen them and been seen in return, once your eyes light up just thinking about seeing each other, then the best of all possible good-byes is poised to take place. For instead of thinking of good-bye as forever, you can look at each other and smile, and say, “Adieu – until I see you again.”

Have you seen anyone today?

      Well I cast my ballot for the presidential election today.  I think the whole country should have the
same system for voting that Oregon does .  Mail in ballots.  We get them in the mail and return them by
mail.  We have just about one of the best voter turn outs in the country.  Most of the people that are
elligible to vote, do so. 
     
     In case anyone cares...I voted for Barack Obama.  He is so far and ahead the most qualified candidate.
I was for Hillary to begin with, but I was happy with whichever one of them we decided to run.

    I was just listening to Michele Obama as she was speaking on behalf of her husband.  Him being in the
state of Hawaii, visiting the bedside of his gravely ill grandmother.  She was a very good speaker, and
did very well in his place.

    I have to say.  This election cannot be over soon enough to suit me.  I am this way every time we
have this election year.  I am so relieved when it is over.  Except for the two elections of GW Bush.
I was so upset after that fiasco, until I still am worried about the outcome of this one.  Even though we
are leading in most of the polls.  I just dont trust the results of the outcome to be fair and impartial any
longer.  I hope that my fears are unfounded.

     Well is anyone changing their minds about who they are going to vote for.?  Now that you have watched all the primary stuff.  The debates, and all the ads.  All the negative, and positive ones as well.
Does anyone think that any of that crap has changed your mind.?  Have you now decided that you would
rather have the person other than the one you had liked before?

     My own idea is that it is just the most expensive and ridiculous waste of money, let alone your eardrums.
I dont think it has any impact on the votes for the most part.  I think that all of the undecided, that still cant make up their mind.  Shouldnt be allowed to vote.  How dumb do you have to be.  You cant decide, after two years...you are unqualified to make up your mind...Therefor unqualified TO VOTE!!!!!

           What do you think about that?

   You may be right Scott.  I have seen the most varied of thoughts, about her wardrobe.  Some think she is the epitome of taste and lovelyness.  On the other hand, there have been those who think she dresses like an old lady.  I think she looks nice for the most part.  However, I would like her to wear separates some of the time.  A lovely pantsuit, or skirt and top.  She is a beautiful woman, and could wear more choices, besides a simple A line dress.

are leading in most of the polls.  I just dont trust the results of the outcome to be fair and impartial any
longer.  I hope that my fears are unfounded.


I agree with all that you say, dear friend. It has been a very sad 8 years and I'm so glad this siege is over!! The Bushes are finished, done, final, out of here, gone. And good riddance!!

     So I am making up a new menu for Thanksgiving this year.  Several reasons are contributing to this.  First of all I dont have
the strength to cook the enormous meal that I used to do all on my own.  Now there are some of the family that are vegetarian,
and others that have food allergies.  So the menu has needed to be adjusted to suit.  I am wondering if there are others that
are having these kinds of issues with, their traditional holiday fares...?

    If so, what are you having to change specifically? Please give me some ideas as to what you may make that is different, yet fits the
tradition of Thanksgivng choices...  Last year I made some veggie dumplings that were a big hit.  Just one of the things I had
never made before.  I just made up the recipe.

    I used bisquick by the recipe.  and added my own ideas for the herbs and fillings.  Using vegetable broth from the box.  I have
found that the new boxes of broth are excellent.

             Reproduced here with permission by the writer:   Moo the Moose



                       
               TWO WORDS

The stoical cowboy with treacle for curls
Sits on the sofa, his heart all a-whirl,
Awaiting his darlin' he ain't seen in years
He sits amid six empty bottles a beer.

A motor outside, the sweet screech of tires
He's up on his feet, his body's on fire
Longing for Jack, he ain't seen in years:
Quick, cowboy, quick, get rid a them tears.

He bursts out the door and flies down the stairs;
Giddyap, cowboy, take 'em in pairs.
Waiting below, his beautiful boy,
His darlin', his Jack: his heart and his joy.

Cowboys collide, the force almost hurts,
With wide crow's-feet smiles, and fistfuls of shirt.
Four years of yearning were four years amiss.
Four years of lonely dissolved in that kiss.

The wall took the brunt of their four years apart,
Those slats felt the force of their wild, cowboy hearts.
Breathless and giddy, they came up for air,
The scent of the mountain in both of their hair.

But the kiss and embrace, which bridged all the years
Could not hold a candle, could just not come near,
When the stoical cowboy bent to Jack's ear,
“Little darlin”, he whispered, extracting a tear.
     



                         


RETURN TO SENDER

 

Returned to sender,
M'hands how they shook.
Oh Lawdy, oh shit,
I can't bear to look

He'll answer, in Texas,
He'll answer for sure.
He's got to!  He will,
The son of a whore.

Alas.  Alas.  Lureen,
Your wife.
Her story, her tale
A godamned sharp knife.

Thrust in the heart,
Plunged into the soul.
Jack Fuckin Twist
Will never grow old.

Reduced ta ash y'could hold
In your hand.
Can't rightly be fixed...
But too much ta stand.

Let the campfire die,
Leave your bay mare bereft.
Your bull's all alone,
My Rodeo's left.

Pack up the pup tent,
Let the woolies roam free.
Brokeback is empty
Let be, let be.










 

           THE COWBOY'S LAMENT

The wind in the Rockies is the voice of my soul
The great, lonely plains - I feel just as old.
A life that knew love, but a life lived without
A life now akin to that long-ago trout.

Oh, for a scapegoat, my heart how it longs
Oh to blame somebody else for the wrongs.
I'm nothin', I'm nowhere, I can't stand to be
So hard to press on, Jack, now there's no We.

The huge, great big sadness of the vast northern plains
Rolls down on my head...goddamn, how it rains.
The rue an' regret, oh it aches like a bitch
It nags me and nags me; a fishwife shrew witch.

A banshee regret that haunts all my sleep
More often than not, I wake then I weep
But sometimes, my friend, sometimes I dream
Sweet dreams of our Mountain and all that it means.

In this sweet slumber, friend, you and I meet,
I shed salty tears, ensconced in wet sheets.
I cling to these dreams, disperse that they may
I grasp the fine fragments, they might stoke the day.

Too good were you, Jack,
A pearl 'fore the swine
So, hung from a tack:
Your shirt in mine

      Here is another poem some of you are probably more familiar with. 

     Its the source of Madlori's fanfiction soon to be published,,, Zero at the Bone






Author’s Note: A lot of people have asked me where the title of this story comes from. It is from Emily Dickinson’s poem “A Narrow Fellow In the Grass” which reads as follows:

A narrow fellow in the grass
Occasionally rides;
You may have met him,--did you not,
His notice sudden is.

The grass divides as with a comb,
A spotted shaft is seen;
And then it closes at your feet
And opens further on.

He likes a boggy acre,
A floor too cool for corn.
Yet when a child, and barefoot,
I more than once, at morn,

Have passed, I thought, a whip-lash
Unbraiding in the sun,--
When, stooping to secure it,
It wrinkled, and was gone.

Several of nature's people
I know, and they know me;
I feel for them a transport
Of cordiality;

But never met this fellow,
Attended or alone,
Without a tighter breathing,
And zero at the bone.

    ????????                        CURE FOR AIDS?                  ????????????
             By MARK SCHOOFS


The startling case of an AIDS patient who underwent a bone marrow transplant to treat leukemia is stirring new hope that gene-therapy strategies on the far edges of AIDS research might someday cure the disease.

The patient, a 42-year-old American living in Berlin, is still recovering from his leukemia therapy, but he appears to have won his battle with AIDS. Doctors have not been able to detect the virus in his blood for more than 600 days, despite his having ceased all conventional AIDS medication. Normally when a patient stops taking AIDS drugs, the virus stampedes through the body within weeks, or days.
[Dr. Gero Hutter] Sixten Koerper

Dr. Gero Hütter isn't an AIDS specialist, but he 'functionally cured' a patient, who shows no sign of the disease.

"I was very surprised," said the doctor, Gero Hütter.

The breakthrough appears to be that Dr. Hütter, a soft-spoken hematologist who isn't an AIDS specialist, deliberately replaced the patient's bone marrow cells with those from a donor who has a naturally occurring genetic mutation that renders his cells immune to almost all strains of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS.

The development suggests a potential new therapeutic avenue and comes as the search for a cure has adopted new urgency. Many fear that current AIDS drugs aren't sustainable. Known as antiretrovirals, the medications prevent the virus from replicating but must be taken every day for life and are expensive for poor countries where the disease runs rampant. Last year, AIDS killed two million people; 2.7 million more contracted the virus, so treatment costs will keep ballooning.

While cautioning that the Berlin case could be a fluke, David Baltimore, who won a Nobel prize for his research on tumor viruses, deemed it "a very good sign" and a virtual "proof of principle" for gene-therapy approaches. Dr. Baltimore and his colleague, University of California at Los Angeles researcher Irvin Chen, have developed a gene therapy strategy against HIV that works in a similar way to the Berlin case. Drs. Baltimore and Chen have formed a private company to develop the therapy.

Back in 1996, when "cocktails" of antiretroviral drugs were proved effective, some researchers proposed that all cells harboring HIV might eventually die off, leading to eradication of HIV from the body -- in short, a cure. Those hopes foundered on the discovery that HIV, which integrates itself into a patient's own DNA, hides in so-called "sanctuary cells," where it lies dormant yet remains capable of reigniting an infection.

But that same year, researchers discovered that some gay men astonishingly remained uninfected despite engaging in very risky sex with as many as hundreds of partners. These men had inherited a mutation from both their parents that made them virtually immune to HIV.

The mutation prevents a molecule called CCR5 from appearing on the surface of cells. CCR5 acts as a kind of door for the virus. Since most HIV strains must bind to CCR5 to enter cells, the mutation bars the virus from entering. A new AIDS drug, Selzentry, made by Pfizer Inc., doesn't attack HIV itself but works by blocking CCR5.

About 1% of Europeans, and even more in northern Europe, inherit the CCR5 mutation from both parents. People of African, Asian and South American descent almost never carry it.

Dr. Hütter, 39, remembered this research when his American leukemia patient failed first-line chemotherapy in 2006. He was treating the patient at Berlin's Charité Medical University, the same institution where German physician Robert Koch performed some of his groundbreaking research on infectious diseases in the 19th century. Dr. Hütter scoured research on CCR5 and

He was treating the patient at Berlin's Charité Medical University, the same institution where German physician Robert Koch performed some of his groundbreaking research on infectious diseases in the 19th century. Dr. Hütter scoured research on CCR5 and consulted with his superiors.

Finally, he recommended standard second-line treatment: a bone marrow transplant -- but from a donor who had inherited the CCR5 mutation from both parents. Bone marrow is where immune-system cells are generated, so transplanting mutant bone-marrow cells would render the patient immune to HIV into perpetuity, at least in theory.

There were a total of 80 compatible blood donors living in Germany. Luckily, on the 61st sample he tested, Dr. Hütter's colleague Daniel Nowak found one with the mutation from both parents.

To prepare for the transplant, Dr. Hütter first administered a standard regimen of powerful drugs and radiation to kill the patient's own bone marrow cells and many immune-system cells. This procedure, lethal to many cells that harbor HIV, may have helped the treatment succeed.

The transplant specialists ordered the patient to stop taking his AIDS drugs when they transfused the donor cells, because they feared the powerful drugs might undermine the cells'
ability to survive in their new host. They planned to resume the drugs once HIV re-emerged in the blood.

But it never did. Nearly two years later, standard tests haven't detected virus in his blood, or in the brain and rectal tissues where it often hides.

The case was presented to scientists earlier this year at the Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections. In September, the nonprofit Foundation for AIDS Research, or amFAR, convened a small scientific meeting on the case. Most researchers there believed some HIV still lurks in the patient but that it can't ignite a raging infection, most likely because its target cells are invulnerable mutants. The scientists agreed that the patient is "functionally cured."

Caveats are legion. If enough time passes, the extraordinarily protean HIV might evolve to overcome the mutant cells' invulnerability. Blocking CCR5 might have side effects: A study suggests that people with the mutation are more likely to die from West Nile virus. Most worrisome: The transplant treatment itself, given only to late-stage cancer patients, kills up to 30% of patients. While scientists are drawing up research protocols to try this approach on other leukemia and lymphoma patients, they know it will never be widely used to treat AIDS because of the mortality risk.

There is a potentially safer alternative: Re-engineering a patient's own cells through gene therapy. Due to some disastrous failures, gene therapy now "has a bad name," says Dr. Baltimore. In 1999, an 18-year-old patient died in a gene therapy trial. Even one of gene therapy's greatest successes -- curing children of the inherited "bubble boy" disease -- came at the high price of causing some patients to develop leukemia.

Gene therapy also faces daunting technical challenges. For example, the therapeutic genes are carried to cells by re-engineered viruses, and they must be made perfectly safe. Also, most gene therapy currently works by removing cells, genetically modifying them out of the body, then transfusing them back in -- a complicated procedure that would prove too expensive for the developing world. Dr. Baltimore and others are working on therapeutic viruses they could inject into a patient as easily as a flu vaccine. But, he says, "we're a long way from that."

Expecting that gene therapy will eventually play a major role in medicine, several research groups are testing different approaches for AIDS. At City of Hope cancer center in Duarte, Calif., John Rossi and colleagues actually use HIV itself, genetically engineered to be harmless, to deliver to patients' white blood cells three genes: one that inactivates CCR5 and two others that disable HIV. He has already completed the procedure on four patients and may perform it on another.

One big hurdle: doctors can't yet genetically modify all target cells. In theory, HIV would kill off the susceptible ones and, a victim of its own grim success, be left only with the genetically engineered cells that it can't infect. But so far that's just theory. All Dr. Rossi's patients remain on standard AIDS drugs, so it isn't yet known what would happen if they stopped taking them.

In 1989, Dr. Rossi had a case eerily similar to the one in Berlin. A 41-year-old patient with AIDS and lymphoma underwent radiation and drug therapy to ablate his bone marrow and received new cells from a donor. It is not known if those cells had the protective CCR5 mutation, because its relation to HIV hadn't been discovered yet. But after the transplant, HIV disappeared from the patient's blood. The patient died of his cancer 47 days after the procedure. Autopsy tests from eight organs and the tumor revealed no HIV.

I am just dropping by to tell you how much your phone call meant to me the other day.  You are a treasure, my Friend.  And although I know it goes against your nature, please don't expend much energy worrying about me.  I am blessed, most especially with good friends such as yourself.  It will all come out in the wash, as they used to say.

 ;) :-*

Much love,
Lynne

      Hey Rich, long time since I've been here to say hello.  My fault, I have been doing things, and its just been hard to get around to it.  I have caught up on your blog, and gosh those pups have grown since the last time I saw them.  They are beautiful though.  We are a dog lovin family here however.  We have a bunch of them here.  Dogs will be there for us when no one else will.  They dont care if you are having a bad day, they still love you.  They dont care how long you have been gone, a few hours, or a few minutes, they are always happy when you return.  They always are just thrilled by your touch.  They dont hold grudges, and they kiss you all over, and keep you warm, when you are alone.  They are the best.  It was wonderful to hear that you finally got some recognition out of that danged job, and they gave you something for the extra effort you always put in...talk again...I cant type too much I have a bad case of tendonitis in my right arm, and it really hurts to type on the keyboard.  I keep my posts to a bare minimum..love janice

Hey there, Janice!  I saw your post over in Wulfie's blog and copied it here because I wanted to make sure you saw it.  I am so sorry to hear that the tendonitis has become so painful for you.

 >:(

I miss you and hope we get to talk on the phone soon.  As you've probably gathered, I'm on an odyssey of sorts with Dev to get myself to Boston to start my new old job on Monday.  Dev and I will try to give you a call in the next few days.

Much love always,
Lynne

Hi Janice,

It was so good talking to you on the phone the other night. Lynne and Dev left this morning and I miss them already. It was great meeting Lynne, Dev, and Chuck as it will be great meeting you one day. Brokies are wonderful and the connection was awesome.

I am so sorry to hear about your bouts of pain and I will say a prayer for you- a few prayers like you did for me when I was going through my losses.

Anyway Janice, I have a new blog- Deb's Daily so when you get a chance help me to get it started. I don't know what to write in it. ??? Anyway, sweetie, I hope you feel better and I will chat with you soon.

Love Debbie (Delmardeb)

        You betcha;;;   whats not to like?    Queen has always been one of my two favorites, Then,  Led Zeppelin, and then Kiss. 

          I really think that Adam is the only person in many years to come along in rock, that can fill the shoes of Freddie Mercury,
     
          not that I think he should.  I told my daughter the first week he is the best i have seen in that catagory in many years.

          Not just on American Idol.  His voice is one in two generations, at least.  Now if you dont like his kind of music, thats

          Your business.  I am just saying.  He is spectacular, and I hope he goes as far as can be.   Because he should.  It will

           be our loss if he doesnt.

This is an update on Adam in response to a post I made in the H H H forum..


     Well I have been keeping pretty close track of his comings and goings.  He has officially signed his contract with 19entertainments
RCA division.  I think he said they are already starting to find songs and try to put the stuff together in an album.
     He was presented on Sunday Young Entertainer of the year award.  Presented co-incidentally by Kara DioGuardi.
     The new issue of Rolling stone comes out on Friday, and he is the cover boy.!!!  He is really excited about that one.  He was
nearly giddy when he was doing it.  There is some videos online showing it.   He is having the time of his life.  He like Heath has
been no angel in his life.  He admits to smoking pot and not always being the square peg, so to speak.  But as afraid as I get sometimes
by the thrush of media he is encountering.  He said like David Copperfield, it is the best of times it is the worst of times...The media following him around makes him know he is popular finally, but its also the fact that the media is always followiing him around...  However that is the worst of the thing.??

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

   I am very upset at this particular juncture.  I went on the stands friday, in order to buy a copy of the Rolling Stones mag.
and have been to almost everywhere that sells them.  The first day.  They are all saying they were sold off the shelves in
the first few hours.  There is only one chance left, A large dept. store chain here hasnt received their copies yet.  I have two
on hold, if they ever do come in.  Otherwise I am left holding the shaft.  The people at Barnes and Noble say it was the
hottest selling magazine they have had in years.  Obviously he has created quite a stir.  I hope his album goes number one in the first week....

      Welcome Lee.  It is my joy.  I love his voice, and respect him for being open and proud. 

  He is a great example of be yourself and let the chips fall where they may.  But at least  he

  has done himself proud.

    I tried to put up some more videos, but my link is bull headed today. 
    Right after he took home that award, he got a gift of a new re-issued model of a watch.
    I was trying to post that.  He is the first person in the world to receive one.  It is a watch
    that was first designed and given to ELVIS..............DOH...  He was truly excited to get that.
    There are lots of extra vids on the bottom of that last post.  Including the watch presentation.
Title: Re: Notes for Janice!!
Post by: ifyoucantfixit on June 16, 2009, 06:00:24 am

      just to give a bit of a forward:  I have been looking for my Brokeback Mountain Videos for over 6 mos
now.  Not just the original version, I wanted to watch it in Jan. on my new blue ray dvd on my new wide
screen tv.  Well they were gone from the movie drawer.  I keep them in the same place all the time.  And
more maddening, not only was the original gone, but the second one I bought. and never opened, so that
I could just keep it forever unopened.  It was gone as well.  Well I almost bought another one, but they
aren't so plentiful in the stores these days.  I was about to look again on Amazon.  When I was searching
in there for something my grandson wanted to watch.  There they both were.  LIKE MAGIC...?????????
     So tonight I watched it again.  It is the very first time I watched it ever without crying.  The last time
I watched it was right after Heath had died.  A day or so.  I had the utmost urge to see it with him in it
still alive, and beautiful.  It was so hard to watch.  I cried more than ever I think, from the desolation of
the loss of Jack, and then Ennis.  It was awful.
     I think that the powers that be.  Somehow hid those videos, for my protection.   Then when the time
came for me to see them now.  There they were.   I tell you the honest truth.  That drawer isnt that
large..  And I looked through it at least a dozen times.  Thinking that maybe they were there and I was
overlooking them.  Or at one time I went thru each and every one of them to see if someone had taken the first one and put it in the wrong jacket.  But no.........?   I have no explanation for all of this.  Except to
say maybe its the little people.  Elves, or some such.?  Very weird..   I could understand missing one of
them.  But both is more than odd.  I wonder what the odds are really?

    As the saying goes," no harm no foul..."   I am  just glad its all back in its place.  But I do keep thinking of that movie that was around
 
    a while ago.  "The Borrowers."  Did you ever see it?  About the  little people that live in the walls and crawl spaces of a house.

    Of course you probably cant tell, but I bought a new ipod just so I could download all of his songs.  I
really dont care a lot for him.....boy is my nose looking long right about now.  I really think myself he
looks good anyway he fixes it, except the rooster on top look.  I " really" don't like that one......
I have always liked Bowie, and he kind of reminds me of him.  Back in the early days.  "ziggy Stardust"  etc.
Am I dating myself now... owtf.   Music has really always been a great pleasure of mine.  And I have had
to turn to strictly country to find anything I want to listen to.  But now its different.   Hooray  I had been rooting
for an Allison and Adam final.  But Kris is good too..  I certainly never saw what the judges loved about Gokey.. To
Me he was more of an advanced karaoke singer.  He never had what I saw as an ah ha moment on the show.  I
thought that Matt Girard was much better than him.. But I think they thought he was too Justin Timberlake like...?
ohwell everbody has their own ideas.... I wanted desperately to go to the show in Portland.  Its the first stop on
the tour.  They should all be pumped and raring to go...first and all.  But we are leaving to take Kelsey back to
Iowa to start Grad School.  She is getting an assistant professorship at Akron U....  We are all so distraught that
she is going to be so far away...booo hooo..  But its for her best interest.  She gets a full scholarship, plus she gets
paid as an assistant.   

   Another thing we share in common Rich....Adam, but you can at least lust after him.... oh well I love his voice.

   Nope, I never did.  It breaks my heart that I wont get one.  If anyone has seen it and wants to sell theirs, I would
be happy to buy it from them, and pay shipping and handling.

             Well thanks pal.   Music is my drug.  I love all kinds and all years.  If its good its good.  Period.

             Glad you approve...I hope more people will enjoy it too..

Same here Janice. Music has always been my drug from the time I was born I think. I too like all kinds of music from all kinds of years. There is music I like from before I was born to what is out right now. Some people think that is unusual, but I never got stuck in a certain music time period. I know a lot of people still listen to the exact same music they listened to in high school and they know nothing about what came before or after. I like many of the songs from when I was in high school, but I sure did not get stuck there. That would be boring to just listen to those same songs over and over and over again. My early jobs were in record stores and my goal was to own a record store. That never happened, but I would have been good at it. When I worked at Sears in the record/stereo/tv department our record area became the top music place in the whole city. I had this ability to name a song from one or two words the customers would give me and I was right at least 99% of the time. Speaking of that, I heard a song in a restuarant in Chicago that I am trying to figure out who did it. This song is very old and definitely before my time. I have found the name of it which is "Somewhere Beyond The Sea" and it is a female who is singing it. I have been able to locate the song, but it always lists Bobby Darin as the singer and occassionally Frank Sinatra; however, the one I heard was definitely a female. It could be Billie Holiday, possibly. Does anyone out there know what I am talking about?

And Janice, I am so GLAD that you are posting a lot again here at Bettermost!!!

   I am not sure who you are talking about...I grew up with it by Bobby Darin.   His movie about his life is named that,
I always thought he wrote it...  It wasnt his biggest hit even...I think that was Mac the Knife..  I still love that one...
Makes me think maybe I could find one of that...............love it to death.......

                 Comcast.Net Chat w/Adam Lambert Transcript  ,  Thursday June l8,


Comcast.Net Chat w/Adam Lambert Transcript
Here's the transcript from the chat Adam Lambert just had over on comcast.net!

3:47 Victor Balta: Hi, everyone! Welcome to our live chat with Adam Lambert! We'll get started at 4 p.m. ET/1 p.m. PT, but go ahead and start submitting your questions/comments for Adam. We're expecting a bit crowd today, so please be patient as we try to get through as many questions as possible in our 30 minutes with Adam.

3:50 Moderator: Hi Everyone. We're looking forward to reading your questions and we're doing our best to get them answered. Please do NOT submit the same question more than once. It does not increase the likelihood of it getting asked and it creates a backlog. We will consider it spamming and we all know what happens to spam.

3:57 Victor Balta: You guys are firing off a mass of questions! Please be patient... we're trying to get through them as the moderator is working to find the best ones!

3:57 Victor Balta: Just a few more minutes...

4:04 Victor Balta: We're still waiting for Adam, folks... he's being pulled from tour rehearsals to do this chat, so please be patient.

4:06 [Comment From Cynthia] Thanks Victor. Glamberts are not known for their patience, but we'll try :-)

4:06 Victor Balta: LOL

4:09 Victor Balta: Here we go.... welcome, Adam Lambert....

4:09 Adam Lambert: Hey, guys... thanks for coming online today! I'm so, so excited to be able to talk to you.

4:09 [Comment From Ace (ontdai)] Adam, can you verify that your twitter is real?

4:09 [Comment From ontdai] Are you therealglambert on Twitter?

4:09 Adam Lambert: It is TheRealGlambert... that is me... Finally I got a Twitter!

4:10 [Comment From totl] When asked about what it's like to see you perform live, Kris referred to you as "mind-blowing". How would you describe Kris?

4:10 Adam Lambert: Hmm... tranquil... and I'm trying to think of the right word... and heartfelt.

4:10 [Comment From Melanie] Hi Adam! What was your favorite outfit that you wore during American

4:11 Adam Lambert: Haha... probably the outfit for... I loved the suit that I wore during Disco week. It's a Roberto Cavalli suit, and it's just wonderful.

4:11 [Comment From Judi] I love your positive outlook and “attitude of gratitude” demeanor. Have you always lived your life with this outlook, or did it develop over time? What do you do for yourself to help you maintain such a positive outlook on life?

4:12 Adam Lambert: It kind of did develop over time. You grow older and you realize how lucky you are to be in certain situations based on your hindsight and perspective. And whenever I feelt myself slipping at all or getting into a negative headspace, I remind myself of people who don't have what they want or don't feel as free as I've felt of late. And that makes me feel how fortunate I am.

4:12 [Comment From Catherine] I know it's way early, but have you thought about what the name of your first album was going to be? Do you have any ideas yet?

4:12 Adam Lambert: It is a bit early. I'm fond of the idea of taking a line from a song that's going to be on the album and taking the title from that. But it's still early. We're just starting the writing process. It'll be provocative, nonetheless.

4:12 [Comment From Kelly] How would you classify your music genre or is it a blend of many?

4:13 Adam Lambert: I think it's a blend of many. I don't think that I fit into one category, so I am inspired by many different kinds of music, so I hope to create, like, a fusion.

4:13 [Comment From Tonya from"ONE" fan group] Adam, I would cut off my right arm just to meet you, will there be a meet and greet for fans on tour?

4:13 Adam Lambert: Hahaha... yeah, I believe so. I hope so. I think that after our performances, we'll definitely be signing autographs and seeing you guys and taking pictures. Because you guys are why we're here.

4:14 [Comment From Meg] All the Glamberts are hoping you give them a shout out today on this comcast. Will you say hi to the Glamberts? They have been waiting anxiously all day. I know I am one of them. IveBeenAdamized Glambert.

4:14 Adam Lambert: Yo, yo Glamberts! I love the name and thank you all for the support. You're incredible. Thank you for the presents and the letters of support.

4:14 [Comment From GangstaGlambert] Do you wear ALL the stuff Glamberts send you? I noticed you wear a lot of fan stuff that's pretty cool.

4:15 Adam Lambert: To be honest, I wear the stuff that I like! hahaha... sometimes stuff doesn't fit, sometimes the sizes are wrong, and sometimes it just doesn't go with my style. But I appreciate it all, and if I decide not to wear something, I usually give it to a friend or someone who will appreciate it, so it doesn't go to waste.

4:15 Adam Lambert: Also, it would be really cool if we could take the money spent on that stuff and donate it to charity. My closet's getting pretty full! I'm working on setting up a charity, so I'll Twitter about it very soon.

4:15 [Comment From courtneywaller] a lot of people, myself included, consider you to be quite the sex symbol, how does that feel and how do you plan to keep yourself at the sex symbol status?

4:16 Adam Lambert: It feels really strange because I don't think of myself that way... I kind of have grown up with a slight ugly duckling kind of complex. In high school, I was overweight and awkward and didn't feel sexy. In the last couple of years, I've become comfortable in my own skin, and I do feel sexy now, but not the kind of sexy you see in a mirror, but it's more of an inside-out thing. And thank you for the compliment because it makes me feel really good!

4:16 [Comment From Debi F] Hi Adam. Congrats on being named a "Sexiest bachelor"! Did you ever mess up a song while on Idol? Not that I noticed.

4:17 Adam Lambert: I hit some bunk notes, but I think I got all the lyrics right, I think. For the most part.

4:17 [Comment From kradisonfan] Will you consider doing a video diary during the tour (as David Cook did last year), so your fans can see some behind-the-scenes things? (will be even more awesome if they involve Kris & Allison!)

4:18 Adam Lambert: Yeah, we've actually begun doing that. There's a video up already on my official web site, which is adamofficial.com, and we're definitely going to be contributing more and more to that. Not only the tour, but the creation of the album and various activities I'm involved with right now.

4:18 [Comment From Tippidy] Will you be performing Ring of Fire on the Idol tour?

4:18 [Comment From Cassidy] Adam, are you going to be singing Mad World on tour?

4:18 Adam Lambert: I am performing "Mad World." I am not performing Ring of Fire.

4:18 [Comment From Allena] hi adam!! do you think being a front runner throughout the whole competition hurt you in anyway??

4:18 Adam Lambert: Not at all. No, I really enjoyed people's support, and I think it helped.

4:18 Adam Lambert: It helped get me to the finals!

4:18 [Comment From MarielaLTB01] Can you give us a line or two from a song you've written lately?

4:18 Adam Lambert: Hmmm... I actually am not allowed to! For legal purposes, but I wish I could!

4:19 [Comment From Amanda] Adam, you're awesome and I can't wait for your album. Do you have any plans on doing any duets with any of the other idols on their or your album?

4:19 [Comment From Rachel] Hey Adam! If you could do a duet with any singer, who would it be and why?

4:20 Adam Lambert: We do not have plans -- yet. But that's not to say it's not going to happen. it's all in discussion. Basically, we have to acquire a bunch of songs, then decide which songs make the album. So as we collect songs, we'll see where a duet would fit in. As far as performing with any other singers, I have a huge list, but I think Lady Gaga would be a blast to perform with. She's innovative and brave and really, really fresh.

4:20 [Comment From Glambert #3286] On the AI site stylist Miles Siggins is quoted as saying “On occasion, we had to rein (Adam) in, plead, beg, whatever … to stop him from wearing something. And to his credit, and my relief, he usually listened!” What were some of the outfits they talked you out of?

4:21 Adam Lambert: There's actually only one. And it was just the idea that was really cool, but the actual execution just felt a little bit corny. But, for the most part, Miles and Art and I collaborated like a team and we had a great time putting outfits together.

4:21 [Comment From CoconutGhosts] why did you decide to attach a butterfly to your pants on the rolling stone cover?

4:21 Adam Lambert: I did not do that, that was the stylist.

4:21 [Comment From littleblackdress] What are the tour colors for your fans?

4:22 Adam Lambert: Blue and silver... and definitely a lot of black. And bring your black nail polish and your eyeliner, people! And just sprinkle glitter all over everything!

4:22 [Comment From Paula] Who taught you to do your own eyeliner?

4:22 Adam Lambert: I taught myself. I've been doing theater for years and you have to learn how to do stage makeup in your early days, so it's not that different.

4:22 [Comment From PLANETFIERCE] Would you ever consider acting in films?

4:22 Adam Lambert: Yeah, that would be amazing. First goal is the record, maybe a music video, and touring and everything that comes with an album. Then we'll see what happens after that.

4:23 [Comment From Annie] Hi Adam. I'm a big fan...Huge fan, actually. Do you ever feel like the media blew your "crush" on Kris out of proportion? You just said that the guy was cute. It's not like you're doodling his name on your notebook.

4:23 Adam Lambert: Yeah, I think that's kind of how the rpess works. They tend to sensationalize every little thing you say, and repeat it and repeat it. Sometimes, it's like the game of telephone... what you say gets exaggerated and changed. But I find it all very funny and I'm not upset by by that at all. That's just the way it goes.

4:23 [Comment From Dragonfly] Growing up, were you ever a crazy awe-struck fan of any artist?

4:24 Adam Lambert: I was always really into Madonna and Michael Jackson. I thought they were so original and inventive and bold.

4:24 [Comment From Kayla] Do you play any instruments, or have any hobbies we might not know about?

4:24 Adam Lambert: I do not play any instruments... except my throat. I don't really have any hobbies that you guys wouldn't know about. If I can think of anything that will surprise you guys, I promise I'll let you know.

4:24 [Comment From cassie] does it bother you that everyone made your sexuality such a big deal?

4:25 Adam Lambert: It doesn't bother me. I'm sure that it's interesting to people, but I do think that we should focus more on the music, because ultimately my sexual preference really doesn't have anything to do with me as an entertainer.

4:25 [Comment From noskerdycat] Adam, in several interviews you said you want to make music with an "electronic" sound. How will you keep that from overpowering your beautiful vocals?

4:26 Adam Lambert: The electronic element is mainly for the instrumentation, it has very little to do with the vocals. You can play an acoustic bass, an electric bass or a synth bass. It's all bass. It just has to do with the sonic aesthetic. The vocals will remain very true to the kind of vocals you heard on Idol, with added layers and harmonies. There'll be a lot more depth.

4:26 [Comment From Michelle T] Hi, Adam. Watching you finally (at the age of 26 almost 27) gave me the kick in the backside that I needed to audition for Idol. Tomorrow is the big day. What one piece of advice could you pass on to me and all of the other hopefuls?

4:27 Adam Lambert: I think that you really just got to make sure you're being true to yourself. You've got to be genuine and authentic. If you're putting on an act, people won't go for it. But at the same time, make sure that you're entertaining them. It's more than your singing voice. It's the way you look, the way you talk to them, the way you make eye contact. It's about the way you communicate the lyrics to the song. Think about more than just the voice.

4:27 [Comment From Kiera] What is your response to fans who are so upset because they feel you should have won, that they are saying they will never watch American Idol again.

4:28 Adam Lambert: Well, I mean, I think that Kris won because he got more votes, fair and square. It doesn't really make much of a difference as far as my career is concerned, if you're a fan of mine. I'm still on the Idol tour. I'm working on an album, set to release in the fall. That was yesterday, let's focus on tomorrow.

4:29 [Comment From LiLisa] Hi Adam! I'm a huge fan of you. I enjoyed watching you on Idol this season. You always brought sooo much energy to the Idol stage and amazing performances. What was your favourite performance you did of the Season and why?

4:29 Adam Lambert: It's hard to name a favorite. I thought that they were all so different and really exciting to perform. I felt like Ring of Fire was really exciting because it was kind of shocking and different and unexpected. But I also had an amazing time performing Whole Lotta Love. I love that song and I love Led Zeppelin. To be able to perform a classic rock masterpiece like that on American Idol was very, very cool.

4:29 [Comment From Massie] In an interview you said you didn't get along with one person, who was that?

4:30 Adam Lambert: I did say that? I'm not going to say, because that wouldn't be very nice.

4:30 [Comment From Marq] What were your Wednesdays like could you ever take your mind off what the results would be?

4:30 Adam Lambert: I kind of just figured that if I worried about it too much it would just make myself crazy. So I kind of let go and went with the philosophy that whatever's going to happen is going to happen. The only thing I had control over was my performance. So, what will be will be. That kind of put my mind at ease.

4:31 [Comment From Jim Diamond] What should people know about you that they don't?

4:31 Adam Lambert: Haha... I think everybody knows everything.

4:31 [Comment From Seekingproof] Adam, have you ever thought about publishing your pre-idol poetry?

4:31 Adam Lambert: No, but that's an interesting idea. Maybe I should consider it.

4:31 [Comment From KellyAnn] Adam, what do you consider sexy?

4:31 Adam Lambert: Confidence, intelligence, and self-expression.

4:31 Adam Lambert: And talent.

4:32 [Comment From Lisa Smith] Hi Adam: Your fans are dying to know what kind of cologne you wear! Please reveal! Thanks, & I love you with all my heart!!

4:32 Adam Lambert: Hahaha... I wear Dior Homme.

4:32 [Comment From Pam] Will you be doing any interviews for publications that are geared more toward children to share your story and message of encouragement to embrace their differences?

4:33 Adam Lambert: I have no plans to do that at this point. If the opportunity presents itself and it's appropriate, I will take it.

4:33 [Comment From Unicorn] Will there be a giant dance number during the tour? Like disco night?

4:33 Adam Lambert: I don't think so. We're not dancing that much on tour.

4:33 [Comment From Sheryl] Question for Adam: Besides using the steam room/humidifier, drinking lots of water and texting instead of talking, what other methods or rituals do you use to maintain your voice in tiptop condition?

4:33 Adam Lambert: Throat-coat tea and honey are really great.

4:33 [Comment From Cheri] When will you be appearing on Ellen Degeneres show? Has a date been set? I don't want to miss it. 42 & loving you in Pittsburgh

4:34 Adam Lambert: A date has not been set. I know that both Ellen and myself really want to sit down and talk, so hopefully soon. Perhaps when I am promoting my album.

4:34 [Comment From Cassidy] Adam, is it true that you met Madonna? How did you meet her?

4:34 Adam Lambert: I was introduced through a mutual friend and colleague, and it was crazy. She's one of my idols. We didn't get to speak for very long, she's very busy, but she was really connected and very present, and she had some great advice about this new-found notoriety.

4:35 [Comment From Melanie] Adam, what was your favorite moment with the other idols, not shown on camera? I wish you much success and happiness, keep smiling!

4:35 Adam Lambert: I had some great talks about life with... I remember there was one night in particular after a performance night, where Kris, Lil, Anoop and I just kind of sat downstairs in the mansion and just talked about life, and I renjoyed that. I like discussions about things and sharing feelings about the way things are, and that was really memorable.

4:35 [Comment From Bowie22] Are you in an exclusive relationship right now?

4:35 Adam Lambert: No. I am dating.

4:36 [Comment From hansley] Whats the thing you regret the most in life?

4:36 Adam Lambert: I really don't have any regrets. I'm really, very, very satisfied with my life, and so far I've had a great journey and I have no regrets.

4:36 [Comment From Andres] Do you feel dissapointed on the comments that the lead singer of Kiss made about you talking too much about your sexuality?

4:37 Adam Lambert: I disagree with him. I think that by him saying people don't care in America, I think he's grossly misinformed, because that's what everybody was talking about incessently. That's why I chose to talk about it, because it was all anybody was talking about. I also find it very hypocritical, considering that he talks about his sex life constantly.

4:37 Adam Lambert: But that's ok. I think he's a very talented guy and I love Kiss.

4:37 [Comment From citizen_vain] Astrology seems very important to you. How did you become interested in it?

4:38 Adam Lambert: I've always really just found it fascinating, and when I first started reading about my sing, which is aquarius, I felt it was pretty accurate. Then, when I did my chart to find my rising and moon signs, I thought it was extremely accurate. And the more I do about other people's charts, I also saw they were very accurate. But I know we're a product of our environment, so that has to do with it, as well. We also tend to reflect the company we keep. So it's a little bit of everything.

4:39 [Comment From Beth] There are noticeable differences, mainly in melody, in some of your AI live and studio versions. Were the studio versions the way you originally intended to perform the songs on the show or were you making a conscious decision to present a distinct live version?

4:40 Adam Lambert: To be honest, a lot of the times when I sing, I have the basic melody that I rehearse with, then most of the time I just kind of improvise certain melody options and kind of go with whatever strikes me at the moment. I kind of like singing in a fly by the seat of your pants type of way. So when recording a studio version, we do multiple takes and I'll do it a bunch of different ways and the producers of the track pick what they like the best.

4:40 Victor Balta: Two more questions!

4:40 [Comment From Ace (ontdai)] Adam, how did you first discover Glamrock, and specifically Velvet Goldmine?

4:41 Adam Lambert: Haha... I was aware of who David Bowie was. My father has his records and showed me some of the cover art and I was very intrigued by somebody in 70s rock that dressed the way he did. It was very cool and inventive. Then I discovered T Rex. I don't know how I found Velvet Goldmine, but once I saw it, I was obsessed with it. I thought it was a genius movie, both in plot and also, visually and musicially. In all elements it was just really cool.

4:41 [Comment From Kelly] Are your parents shocked by your physical transformation over the years?

4:42 Adam Lambert: It's been pretty gradual, so it wasn't like an overnight thing. I think the first time I dyed my hair balck, my mom was, like, "Whoa! Really dramatic." But I've always been playing dress-up, so I don't think it was really much of a shock to them to see me experimenting with the way I look.

4:42 Adam Lambert: Thank you guys so much for chatting with me today. I'm so excited to perform for everybody live on tour this summer. Be sure you check it out. There's definitely some new music that was not on the show. And wait until you see my outfit. It rocks!

4:42 Victor Balta: Thanks, Adam!

4:43 Victor Balta: Thank you all for coming. I hope you enjoyed our live chat, and we appreciate Adam staying a little extra time due to the late arrival

         `I am not one of those fans spouting this philosophy.  I think that Kris Won fair and square.  It was just

 the title that the article was printed under.  At this point I dont really think it matters anymore.    He is getting

 much more press, partly because of the controversy, of his sexuality.  Partly because of his voice.  He is just one

 of those kinds of people right now that is generating all kinds of buzz, both good and bad.  You may love him

 or you may hate him...But as W.C. Fields once said.  "I dont care what you say, long as you spell my name right. 

 Its all publicity in the end."

   Yes thats right Kelda.  Ryan Seacrest, has claimed that he is the one that turned him on to that group.  Simon

agreed that it was true.   They have a movie coming out this week I think it is.  About them getting together..

They are awesome.  I really like listening to them.  But I don't understand Spanish, so it shows that they are great

musicians to be able to do that.

      Of course I remember that Jack.  How can you possibly forget something like that....I never did anything like

that before,,,or thankfully since.   I am not a real big shell eater.  As much as I probably could use the calcium....lol

Hiya Janice.

A while ago, I showed you two videos (Best Of Me, and Be OK) by new singer Chrisette Michele, you really liked her music and voice.

She's just released a new CD, and here's the first video, "Epiphany (I'm Leavin')"

I can't imbed the video, here's a link.

     Thanks Chuck i'll be sure and check it out.

      Kelda you are a sweetheart.  Thanks.  You know he was in the eight men and women
      accapella choir in high school....  I think he is on his way.  I sure hope so.  There is so
      much about him to be thankful for, besides his beautiful voice..........He wants to be a
      positive role model.  For those who during their teen years feel like they dont even
      fit in.  As out of place as an ordinary teen feels notwithstanding.

      Thats why he made sure he didn't hide in the closet, and showed who he really is.
       He is out and not afraid.  But I sure hope it doesn't hurt him in any way.  So far
        it doesn't seem to be the case....Go Adam..............

Pink is great!  She's always making music she wants, not trying to stay with certain styles to get hits.  Her music is great no matter what she sings, and she gets hits because of that.

I was a fan from her first song, "There You Go".

       Well we are back from our trip.  We delivered our girl to her graduate school.  She is already taking her teaching
courses.  I sure hope she likes it back there.  The town she lives in is right next to Akron.  Its called Cahaogaha Falls.  Its
a very nice and friendly little place, very homey and filled with nice little community homes and some pretty high end places
as well.  It has a very nice mall, and some cute little boutiques also.  Some good thrifty stores as well.  Its pretty suited for
students in college.  It seems safe and quiet.  I sure hope so.
       We felt like we just took her back there and dropped her off.  After purchasing her some things she was going to
need for her years in school.  A nice large desk, and a chest of drawers.  They all match with her bed.  It makes it look like
they were all bought to match.  We were lucky at some second hand stores for her.  Very reasonably priced too.  They are
real wood.  Not that pressed wood junk.  Her dog seems pretty happy there as well.  Except for the stupid critter that
they have that has taken up residence in their drain system.   She hasnt gotten a good look at it yet, and Keri seems pre occupied with it.  Every time she takes her out to do her business. 
       I hope she gets more used to being there, than we are going to be having her there..oh hum...boo  hoo..............Six years seems like an eternity.

    She is rather homesick and lonely as well.  She has been calling every day.  To all of us, and to her college friends, as well as
her cousins and high school friends.  I sure hope she makes some good friends there.  I think it will be better when her roommates
are back from summer vacation, and ready to start school again...?

        The husband and I along with my daughter went to see David Cook, at the Oregon State fair.  It was great.

He is so natural and down to earth, he got down on the floor level and talked to some pre teens that had came and

sat in the front row.  Three boys, that were rockin their little sox off.  It was so sweet.   He gave a nice long concert

too.  Not like some of these people that charge so much and only are only on for 45 mins

       Hey doll.  Its wonderful to hear from you. I was wondering if you were still around.  I have missed our little
chats as well, as the games we played together.  That is the way of things I suppose.  I have had some serious
right wing issues, with tendonitis.  I havent done a lot of typing at all.  I have started reading books instead really.
I have really enjoyed them too.  I can read anywhere, I dont have to be connected to an internet in order to
keep up with the stories. 
      Hope to hear from you again soon, find out what ya'll  been up to.  LOL.   (hugs)

     I havent been around for a couple of weeks.  I have been pretty sick.  I spent four days in the hospital.  My husband took
me to emergency, and they admitted me right away.   I was basically in a coma.  I had a systemic uremic track infection.   My
blood pressure was very dangerously low as well.  They have taken me off nearly all my meds.  I am still pretty weak but am
doing better a day at a time.

you often.  I have even tried to call you a couple of times over the past couple of years.  \
     I agree that we had an instant connection.  It was so hard to leave people you have learned to like so much, and
then not see them any more......Kelsey has talked about you on several occasions as well.  She wanted you to know
that you started her on vegetarianism.  She has been one for a long time now.  I forget how long it has been, but at
least a couple of years.

   Thanks so much everyone, for the good wishes.  I would have liked to have had this procedure a long time ago.  If I had known the results would have been so positive.
I feel like a new person.  My husband, and daughter, not to mention the grandchildren, are all preaching at me to
not overdo.  I feel like I can do anything, but I know its not possible.  They are trying to keep me very stilll, and not
allowing me to do much at all.  I will be sure to not over exert myself, because I feel like I have the energy to do so.
    I just cant believe that I feel as well as I do after the surgical proceedure.  It is very wonderful to feel like a normal
person again.  I havent felt this good for a very long time.  Amazing how the difference is.   I bled out quite a bit, but it was not so much, as to be life threatening.  They considered a transfusion, but decided against it.   Thank god for the
new Adam album.  I dont watch tv much, so I just listened on the computer to his album...All the nurses and aids
were into it too.    Janice

      I really want to thank everyone who sent cards for Christmas this year.  I probably wont be doing that
this year.  I had another issue at the hospital two weeks ago.  They didnt put me back on my regular pills'
so the stents they put in my heart clogged up, and I had a heart attack.  This time was much worse, and
I am having problems gaining my strength back, so I am kind of reserving my energy output.... Plus??
if that wasnt enough, they have given me some meds I never took before, and I am honestly afraid that
I am allergi c to something.  I have broken out in hives all over my body.  Something I have never had
before in my life.  It itches like helll too.  Damn it  if its not one thing its two...

      But the best of Holiday Wishes and Happy New Year to all.....Love Janice

   Dearest Kelda:   
   
     Thank you for the sweet words, and I hope you are well and happy in your life too.  We tend to not think of too
much in times that are good.  Its only when we feel bad that we start to whine.... I am trying to not be too bad with
that.  I know for sure it is a thing that is such an annoying habit for people to get into... It is something that it is, and
can become a habit very easily.  I know we all have seen people like that....  I dont want to be one of them.
      I dearly hope that if I get like that, that you all will feel free to kick me in the seat of my jeans, and say "snap out
of it" you are getting tiresome....  Thanks to all the kind and caring words guys.

     And yes, my family is doing all they can to try and keep me here and well as I can be now...  If I can just get my
blood count up to something close to normal, I will be fine.  The rash is receeding quite well.  THANK THE LORD AND ALL
THE GODS.

      My favorite so far is Casey James.  I know its partly his looks, he is HOTTT.
But as Kara says, he is not only eye candy, he is also ear candy.  Both of those
count on this show.  So many young girls vote, that you need both....Thats how
Kris Allen won last time. 
     I do like Crystal too however and that other girl that played the piano.  I am starting to have trouble remembering the names of all of them, because there are so many that remind me of others that have been on the show.  \
     I hear some of Bo Bice in Casey too.  So its bound to happen I suppose, when you have so many that have been on there.

Hiya Janice.

Did you ever like Sade?  She has a new video out that is getting a lot of postive reactions.

It's called "Soldier of Love".

Post by: ifyoucantfixit on March 10, 2010, 03:51:03 am


   Yes I did like Sade a lot.  Still do.  She still sounds the same now as she did back in the late seventies. 

   I was glad to see her coming round with some new stuff.  As I have said before, I don't care for too
     
     many lady singers.  I have always liked her though...I happen to be a bosanova fan anyhow.


    I am quite eclectic in my tastes for music.   But I do not like hip hop or rap...except for M an M.  I think he is Genius.

I am very fond of Snoop also.. But not everything he does.

I know that is hard to understand.  I am all over the place, with the coices I have.

You have great taste in music.  I love all the vids you post and feel the same about Eminem.  He is a genius and he's cute too.   ::)   Snoop Dog's music isn't what draws me to him; I like his acting.  He's funny as hell.

    Thanks for the nice St. Patricks day wishes Chuck.  Guess what I got for my St. Patricks day present.  Since I dont
drink.  My husband bought me a four year old Llasa Apso dog.  We got her from the shelter.   She is so precious.  Sweet
and mostly trained, (so I don't have to do it all)  I will get some pictures on, soon as I charge my camera.  I named
her Chrissy.  She is a doll.  When we got her at the pound they had already neutered her, gave her all her shots, licensed
her, and all.  Then you get a free vet visit.  That is really a great price, since she is a pure bred.  Now I have to get her
bed, and leashes and collar, etc.  I am loving this... So much fun.  She slept with me last night.

   Sorry I have been so lazy at getting Chrissy's pics posted.  We have been kind of busy this week, doing other stuff.
We had to take her to the vet, and get her ears checked.  She had some kind of yeast infection in there.  She sure
didn't like having the medicine put in there.  It doesn't hurt, it merely tickles, and it drives her crazy.  She shakes her
head crazily.  But .. in truth she quits as soon as we stop putting the meds in there.  It is just about healed now though,
so it makes her glad.  I have found out that she is very well trained she goes out and does her business three times
a day, and no probs.  She loves the walks.  I wish I could take her farther.  She loves it so much.  I enjoy it too.

   We finally rented and watched Brothers... It was wonderful.  It was sad, and had some depressing parts in it
too, but over all the actors were great.  That little girl that played the older sister, was so great, she deserved an
award like they give to kids.  I was truly impressed by her....I loved it.

   We had a great evening yesterday.  Mark from San
Diego is here for the weekend, and we went to dinner
with him.   We went to the Claim Jumpers, he mentionsed that
he had wanted to have their pizza.  I had not even known that
they had pizza. 
    I had been craving meatloaf for a week or so, so I had that,
that is what I had.  It was great, and it had a serving of roasted
squash, with mashed red potatoes.  Yummy!!  Then dessert of
vanilla ice cream, and cup cake of red velvet cake.  I was in
food heaven.  Ken and I shared the dessert.  I was stuffed as
a tick by the time I finished.  Brought half the dinner home, to
have today for dinner.  Probably a sandwich.
    Wish you all could have been there also.  It would have been
wonderful to have a lot of Brokies there with us.

       Ke$ha.................Boots and Boys

          I don't know what it is specifically that I like about her.  But I really like
someone that goes against type for me.  Ke$ha.   She has something about her
I think its because she says things in her music, that is so unusual for a girl
singer.  She is rather straight forward, and doesn't care what people think about
her.  She is that much like Adam.  Not that they sing anything alike.  But she is
unfiltered in her statements and in her songs too.  I think the techno stuff really
goes well with her style.

        I think she is really different.  That is something I like so much, is someone
who is different.  Ninty percent of the people out there today sound the same.
If one person makes a record, the rest make  the same thing.  Thats why I fell in
love with Adam so much.  He is different, he has talent, and he aint hard to look
at either.  He is able to sing without lip syncing.  Which is my other big complaint as well.  Well my rant is over...sorry.....lol ::)

      And by the way I am doing well.  I am going to go to see Kelsey
next month after I go to the concert.   Thanks for asking..

I like Adam as well.  "What Do Ya Want From Me" was a big hit for him.  His new single, "If I Had You" is starting to get played, and VH-1 is playing the video pretty regularly.

Its too  bad you  couldn*t make it to the concert.  Its the last one.  I loved both of the ones that
I went to.  Kelsey is a  big fan now too.  She fell for him and his beautiful voice, while we were there.  She has been listening to his album, every since I got to her house.  She is in love with his talent  Right in the middle of the show, she stood up, and said  :well You've got me.  I love him....She had seen so little of him before.  She never got to watch American Idol. She had to teach during that time.  We drove to Cincinnatti on fri evening, and stayed over night.  Went to the show on Saturday night.  He was even better the night we went to the  concert.

A voice is a lving thing, and it is in better shape some days more than others.  He is never bad of course, but sometimes he is flat amazing.   Hard to believe a person can sing like that.

   That is definitely her Chuck.  She is such a sweety.  Adam even has said so.  What you see
with her.  Its what you get.  She is 100% the real deal.  I am sure she knows of what she
speaks.  She is still getting lots of flack, from being herself nowdays even.  She is a psudo hippie
with a single mom.  She has been raised to be "yourself"  nomatter what that is.  Don't let
other people intimidate you.  However you are is ok.  As long as you are not doing harm to others.  I certainly haven't seen any of that from her.  I like her a lot.

 something that is ordinary.  Gay or bi, or transgendered or any other sexual orientation.
 If you are fat, or touretted or anything that makes you supposedly stand out from everyone
 that consideres themself normal.  It is a case where you should stand up and not be ashamed
 or afraid to be just what you are.  Live your life in color and joy.  That way, you won't ever be
 afraid to be YOU.  Just be the best and most comfortable you, that you can be.  That way

    I always love the people that have the courage to be themselves.  Even if you are not
 something that is ordinary.  Gay or bi, or transgendered or any other sexual orientation.
 If you are fat, or touretted or anything that makes you supposedly stand out from everyone
 that consideres themself normal.  It is a case where you should stand up and not be ashamed
 or afraid to be just what you are.  Live your life in color and joy.  That way, you won't ever be
 afraid to be YOU.  Just be the best and most comfortable you, that you can be.  That way
 you never have to pretend to be anything else besides who you are.  People who are phony;
 always pretending to be sweet or kind or honest, you can feel it.   You can always

 tell sooner or later, that it was  a lie.  That is the way they have always hurt others.

Hey Janice,

That was beautiful and so true. I believe it 100% and I love " The very best thing you can do in life, in my opinion.  Is to be kind and honest.   Doing that you don't ever intentionally hurt anyone."

Its too  bad you  couldn*t make it to the concert.  Its the last one.  I loved both of the ones that
I went to.  Kelsey is a  big fan now too.  She fell for him and his beautiful voice, while we were there.  She has been listening to his album, every since I got to her house.  She is in love with his talent  Right in the middle of the show, she stood up, and said  :well You've got me.  I love him....She had seen so little of him before.  She never got to watch American Idol. She had to teach during that time.  We drove to Cincinnatti on fri evening, and stayed over night.  Went to the show on Saturday night.  He was even better the night we went to the  concert.

A voice is a lving thing, and it is in better shape some days more than others.  He is never bad of course, but sometimes he is flat amazing.   Hard to believe a person can sing like that. 
Hi Janice. I´m a fan too. Adam will perform in Stockholm on Nov 9 and I´ll be there for sure.

    Well gang, I have finally spoken to Dev.  She has been quite ill, and actually underwent
an optional surgery yesterday.  She had what the doctors think was a benign tumor on her forehead.  It was removed and it left her with quite a lot of post surgical pain last
evening.  She is going to slowly recover, and hopefully that is an issue that she won't have to deal with anymore.  She is still awaiting the finding from the clinic to find out if it was truly non cancerous.  The doctor thinks it is, but there is no guarantee until the facts are.  She is still having the pain in her neck and back, plus it is bothering her arm quite a lot.  She is having trouble receiving the meds that take the pain to an acceptable level.  She is having a lot less issues with her sleeping however.  It is because she has finally gotten something that is helping her with that on going issue.  Her daughter is still living at home with her and Bob, but she and her partner are being a great help, she says.  So
she hopes to start getting to the point where she can come back to us and take part in the forum as before.  I told her I would pass on the conversation we had and let all of you know how she is getting on.  Plus she is dealing with the new issue she had just found out not too far back, and that is her diabetes.  I told her we were all concerned about her and hope for her to get back to feeling healthy and happy soon.

   Thank you Chuck for the lovely holiday wishes.  You are always so up to date
with all of that.  It takes more dedication, than I seem to muster. 
    Our Thanksgiving was wonderful, and quiet.  It was good in that way.  It was done
almost in its entirety by Carla.  She is getting to be the one to take that job on now.
I just cannot come up with the energy or stamina to handle it anymore.  I did the
veggies, and she did the rest.  So I hope everyone had a wonderful day.  I was going
to go to the late showing of "Love and Other Drugs," but I was not feeling too well.
Even after taking extra pain medication.  So I just went to bed early, and watched
late night poker.   Plus listened to my baby doll.  I seem to never tire of that.

Hi Janice.  Thank you for letting everyone on your blog knw whats been going on with me.  I am begining to feel better from my surgery. The bandage came off yesterday. I was so scared to look but its not too bad. There's an insicion about 2 centimeters long.   Today its looks like a lot of the swelling has gone down. :)
Im still going to rest though per doctor's orders.  I hope your pain is not so bad.  Thanks for calling me.  It was so nice to talk to you.  Take care sweetie.

I know that you have some difficult situations and things that cannot be easily dealt with, but I hope also you have beautiful sunsets, warm spring breezes, blue birds singing in the trees. Allow those to balance out the bad things. And I send you a big hung.

              I think over all and all this is my favorite song ever.  No matter who sings it.
              but this is particularly unforgettable.

I really love this one and I really hate this too.  Is it possible that I'm just now getting around to really grieving for Heath?  I'd just started a new job in Seattle and I stayed away from BetterMost during those first few awful weeks.  I guess I knew if I started, I'd never stop and that job would be done before it started.

We're going on three years, now, aren't we?  I remember really hating that it (Heath's death) happened, sharing a short whiskey toast with Elle, but I was very compartmentalized about Heath not being Ennis and vice-versa.  Now I watch this and wonder what the hell I was thinking.  What a beautiful talented man, inside and out.  And a terrible loss for everyone his life touched.  I imagine there's just been too much loss this year.  And I was too busy being busy then to feel it fully.

I tried it on my guitar, playing along, but it pretty much sucks.  Maybe Ronny will help me.  I know all the chords to this one, at least.  I want my piano.

Hello Janice!  Hope you're feeling fine.  I wanted to pop in and say hey.  Also tell you my recovery is coming along pretty well.  Of course the second I felt the slightest bit better wouldn't ya know I popped open some of my stitches.  Yeah I started bending and cleaning and doing too much.  Ive been really taking it easy since then.  Bob has been waiting on me making sure I dont do too much.  He gets back to work on the 27Th of March.  We kicked out the kids and he quit his job to stay home and make sure I got the best care.

Its been really tough tho not just cuz they cut my neck almost in half lol jk, but because there's been no cash.  A little money coming in was nice definitely.  So first, he inquired if he is rehireable and second, he had a talk with the HR manager and the CEO of the company in an impromptu meeting and got his job back. That was last month. Yeehaw!  This past Sunday paper had a large ad in it looking for potential employees to come to their job fair probably to start when Bob does again at the end of March.  I think I should be feeling pretty well by then.  :)

So things are going OK.  I'm glad the kids are out.  Ashes, Linds and I are all still on speaking terms.  Of course they left their room a huge mess.  I shouldn't have but I did a lot of packing and cleaning up of the room so it would be nice for my sister to stay in when she visited us.  During her stay one morning she climbed in bed with me while I was still sleeping.  This was after Bob got up.  He never gets up before I do lol.    Anyway, Laura surprised me when I woke up, then she turns to me and says its 3:00 in the afternoon!!!!   I slept all night and half the day without waking up once.  Incredible isn't it? I must have felt so comfy and secure I just didnt wake up.  Hasn't happened before and hasn't happened since.  I mean jeez I wake up at least once in the night but not this night.

Anyway, Ashes left behind another fucking dog.  That's two she's left here. Abandoned.  Her name is Poochas and she's a huge Rottweiler.  She better go back when they get settled.  Thank God Ive got it through Robert's mind to keep our dogs out of our room and bed. JESUS they were driving me nuts.  I mean in my bed?  COME ON.  My incision isn't even fully healed yet. Whats good is that I am not in bed all day anymore, Yay!  just in my chair with a heating pad and a few pillows.  I watch a lot of TV and the dogs behave very well for me.  Its so wonderful not having them in our room at night tho.  I mean I sleep so much better.  You wouldnt believe the difference.   Its nice we keep them out of the room all the time so that no dog hair can get in my incision.  The dogs are not in the room or bed at all ever never!  Which means a much cleaner room!  Of course they go outside all the time too.  We have a fairly large backyard with a nice fence.  Doesnt matter though cause two of the dogs can get out of it anyway so they're on 30' leads. 

I love you dear friend.  Take care of yourself and keep me posted on how you're feeling lately.  And, I enjoy the vid clips that you post. They're wonderful and so entertaining. Janice dear please call, write, PM or whatever email.  Thanks for always posting on my blog.  Please dont stop.

             Yes Chuck, I am fine, just been doing stuff with hubby.   And the
beautiful Ggrandson.  Kelsey came for a week to visit him and the rest of us
but we all knew it was mainly to see him.  He is so beautiful, it takes my breath away.  He is the image of his daddy.  Jeremy, Kels brother.
         Thanks for asking.  I hope you are all well too.  I just heard this song on
you tube, and it blew me away.  Thought I would share it with all of you....huggs

            Thanks Chuckles, Happy Easter to you.

   OUr anniversary is near Easter most years.  We just hit 54yrs....my whole
family went out to a nice dinner.  Except for our dear Kels and my sons wife.
She has this week moved in with her gma, for a while until she gets more
weight on.  She has MS, and my son just started his new business, he is a
Mechanic.  He is doing so many hours, he can't take proper care of her, and
her daughter just moved out with her boyfriend.  So this should be for the
best for a time anyway.  Unfortunately she will not get better, she is getting pretty feble

Hello Janice!  Hope you're feeling fine.  I wanted to pop in and say hey.  Also tell you my recovery is coming along pretty well.  Of course the second I felt the slightest bit better wouldn't ya know I popped open some of my stitches.  Yeah I started bending and cleaning and doing too much.  Ive been really taking it easy since then.  Bob has been waiting on me making sure I dont do too much.  He gets back to work on the 27Th of March.  We kicked out the kids and he quit his job to stay home and make sure I got the best care.

Its been really tough tho not just cuz they cut my neck almost in half lol jk, but because there's been no cash.  A little money coming in was nice definitely.  So first, he inquired if he is rehireable and second, he had a talk with the HR manager and the CEO of the company in an impromptu meeting and got his job back. That was last month. Yeehaw!  This past Sunday paper had a large ad in it looking for potential employees to come to their job fair probably to start when Bob does again at the end of March.  I think I should be feeling pretty well by then.  :)

So things are going OK.  I'm glad the kids are out.  Ashes, Linds and I are all still on speaking terms.  Of course they left their room a huge mess.  I shouldn't have but I did a lot of packing and cleaning up of the room so it would be nice for my sister to stay in when she visited us.  During her stay one morning she climbed in bed with me while I was still sleeping.  This was after Bob got up.  He never gets up before I do lol.    Anyway, Laura surprised me when I woke up, then she turns to me and says its 3:00 in the afternoon!!!!   I slept all night and half the day without waking up once.  Incredible isn't it? I must have felt so comfy and secure I just didnt wake up.  Hasn't happened before and hasn't happened since.  I mean jeez I wake up at least once in the night but not this night.

Anyway, Ashes left behind another fucking dog.  That's two she's left here. Abandoned.  Her name is Poochas and she's a huge Rottweiler.  She better go back when they get settled.  Thank God Ive got it through Robert's mind to keep our dogs out of our room and bed. JESUS they were driving me nuts.  I mean in my bed?  COME ON.  My incision isn't even fully healed yet. Whats good is that I am not in bed all day anymore, Yay!  just in my chair with a heating pad and a few pillows.  I watch a lot of TV and the dogs behave very well for me.  Its so wonderful not having them in our room at night tho.  I mean I sleep so much better.  You wouldnt believe the difference.   Its nice we keep them out of the room all the time so that no dog hair can get in my incision.  The dogs are not in the room or bed at all ever never!  Which means a much cleaner room!  Of course they go outside all the time too.  We have a fairly large backyard with a nice fence.  Doesnt matter though cause two of the dogs can get out of it anyway so they're on 30' leads. 

I love you dear friend.  Take care of yourself and keep me posted on how you're feeling lately.  And, I enjoy the vid clips that you post. They're wonderful and so entertaining. Janice dear please call, write, PM or whatever email.  Thanks for always posting on my blog.  Please dont stop. BTW this surgery has been wonderful.  Although Im not fully healed, there is such a huge difference in my pain level.  See ya soon.   :-* :-* :-*

Just seeing this.. how are you doing now hun?

                No matter what your opinion is on shows like this.  If they never do anything else.  They have found and raised to the heights of popularity.  Adam Lamberts beautiful and unequaled voice.  I thank them for that.  It is the very greatest voice to come along by a male singer, in many years.  In my opinion, since Elvis Presley.

Once in a century.

    *
      INTRO_11.11.11
    *
      Power Number

      According to numerology, each number holds a unique vibration with associated traits attached to it. One and two symbolize masculine and feminine energy, respectively, with one deemed as "the creator." When repeated, one becomes 11, which is considered the Master Number, representing rebirth and, you guessed it, new beginnings.
*************************************************************
       Since this is my birthday.  It is a special number for sure to me.  I hope it
gives me the magical reward.  I have always considered my birthday a very lucky number.  __

        My greatest wish for this, is for a turn around in the economy of our country..Health for people that are ill, and love and attention to those in need of closeness.  If any or all of these things could come to pass.  It would truly be a great birthday gift, and lucky number.

       HAPPY MY BIRTHDAY TO EVERYONE !!!!!!!!!!!!!!

       The first day, was with my glorious grandaughter.  The second one, was by
myself.  The third one, was with my wonderful hubby.  They both liked it very
much.  However it never was an ah hah moment, like I had.
      I had misplaced the video.  I have been looking off and on for three months.  I have always watched it again on my Brokieday.  The first year, however, I watched it over a hundred times.  I had also listened to the soundtrack many many more times.

Hi there,

Want to preserve the internet we know and love, and keep it an innovative force for the future?

Today, Mozilla is joining in a virtual strike with other leading public interest organizations and tech companies, from Wikipedia to Reddit to Google, to protest the PROTECT IP Act (PIPA) and its companion legislation in the US House, the Stop Online Piracy Act (SOPA) -- and we need your voice.

The fact is that it's been a great couple of weeks in the fight against the PROTECT IP and Stop Online Piracy Acts -- the White House came out against them, and the growing chorus of opposition both in and outside of government has been heartening.

But the fight is not over, particularly in the Senate. There's a week left until Senators return to Washington from their districts, when their vote is scheduled on the PROTECT IP Act -- can you help make one last push while they're still nearby, by calling their local offices and asking them not to support PIPA? Get started here:

http://stopthewall.us/

And to see how Mozilla is striking -- and for other ways to take action today -- check out:

http://mozilla.org/sopa

No matter what happens, this isn't the last step -- there's currently a vote on the PROTECT IP Act scheduled for next week, once the Senate is back in session, and if it goes forward we'll be in touch with how to make the biggest difference beforehand.

Thanks for all you've done to help fight this misguided legislation. It's looking good, but we can't let up now.

Ben

P.S. -- Not in the US? Unfortunately, you shouldn't contact the senate, but please forward this on to anyone you know in the states, and the Electronic Frontier Foundation has put together a petition to get your message to the US State Department. You can sign that here:

https://donate.mozilla.org/State-Dept

  This is too funny.  (or it would be if the situation wasn't so horrific.) The captain of that sinking cruise ship, is now claiming.  "He tripped and fell
into a lifeboat."  That is his explanation for how he ended up in a lifeboat, when he called the Coast
Guard, to report the incident.
 
   Boy if SNL doesn't latch onto that one.  They are truly going to "miss the boat."

   This begs to use the line "how convenient."

I have to say, I know who Adam Lambert is but he's not that popular here.. I think just becasue he didn;t get the publicity at the start as he did in the US.
Title: Re: Notes for Janice!!
Post by: ifyoucantfixit on January 20, 2012, 05:25:49 am

   He is probably going to do some shows with "Queen this year.  I think he will become much better
known on your side of the pond then.  He just spent the past year writing most of the songs on his new
album "Trespassing."  It is going to be released on March 20th.  He has had his single "Better than I know myself," from the album, out for about three weeks now.  It is great.  The people that have heard it, are giving it rave reviews.  After all with a voice like his..why not?  He is the male version of Adele. 
   Roger Taylor, the drummer of Queen, said he had "a one in a hundred million voice,"*  Since they asked him to appear with them at the EMAs, Roger and Brian said "the phone has not stopped ringing."  Evidently there is great demand for them to do some dates together.  It seems, from what I read.  It is going to happen some time this year..  I have a linc somewhere to the EMA performance.  Queen received the Global Icon Award.  It was a stupifying appearance.  The best they have had since poor Freddie passed.  IMO.

* Roger had just spent the last year with an online promo, trying to find a new singer to be, the new front man since last parting with the former singer of Bad Company.  He found a new young man from Canada, who is quite like Freddie in his voice.  I guess that he was not as charismatic as Adam however.  He is a good singer though.  Adam is a veritable force onstage.  He is not just a singer, he is a performer.  Sings dances, and interacts in his own special way.

   One more for the Dems.  Susanne Bonamici, won the special election here in our county.  Beating out Rob Cornellies.  An admitted Tea Partier.  Like that would help his cause here in liberal Washington County.   It was a special election, filling the vacated
seat.  When David Wu resigned over questionably ethics.  He was a good representative, but its too bad that people lose track of their moral compass.

    The only problem is; we have to do it over in November.  This is only a fill in for the remainder of the term..  I wish it had been an appointment.  That would leave the money for running in the fall available for the long term use.

    I think I will tell a story here, that kind of says how I am, and was.  When I was a child, I had a photographic memory almost.  If I saw something, and or read it, I knew it.  I used to not think twice about it.  It was just how it was.  As a child, you don't question it.  It is something that you think probably if you think about it, everyone has that ability.  But honestly I don't even remember thinking about it.  I now know that is not the case for most people, since I no longer have that ability.  I remember distinctly the first time in mys life that my mind failed me.  I couldn't think of something, that I knew that I knew.  It was startling for sure..  Since then, I have had that problem, in varying degrees.  Culminating in the time after my hospital stay, this past year.  I had to do a lot of work to get my brain back.  It will never be what it once was, alas, but it is fully functional at least.  I had trouble thinking of the smallest pertinent words, in conversation.  To say that it was highly frustrating is putting it mildly.  I do feel that I am alright iin that regard now however.  I spent three months of very intense online puzzles getting here.  Thank god for the modern technology.

    My reason for telling this in regards to the Oscars.  I was one of those children that was weekly allowed to go to the Sat. afternoon movies.  My mother would go do the weekly shopping, and bill paying, and I was sent to the movies.  We had a new theater in town, and it was very nice, seeing how I come from a very small town, and lived ten miles outside of it, in the country.  It was very elegant to me. 

    But the point of it is all, to say, that I grew up, with my mind and thoughts in the movies.  I was a person that went to the magazine rack in every store I went into, when my mother shopped.  I would read all the movie mags.  There aren't many now.  However back then, there were many.  I was allowed to read them, and then buy some to take home.  I lived and breathed that life.  It was the most appealing and satisfying thing in my otherwise, not too happy life.  I made scrap books, and read everything available about the movies, and the stars.  I even made my senior project about the movies.  I think I even remarked on it somewhere here.

    Anyway, the place where we lived, was a group of houses, we lived in a single home, and the others were duplexes.  I remember there were five of the duplexes, and our house, in a row, along a dirt road.   The back of the property was a huge barn.  It had all manner of things, from farm equipment, to hay and bags of potatoes.   The point is, all the kids that lived there would kind of hang out there, and talk.  After coming home from the movies, I would go out. Often the children would ask me what movie I saw, and what it was about.  I would sit and retell the story and do all the voices, and the dialogue for the entire bill.  There were always two.  There was a "double feature," as they were called.  It would take several hours in my retelling of these stories.  I loved it and they loved it, and I felt good that I could allow those others the chance to know the stories.   Many of them, came from large families, with little extra money to send them to the theater. 
    I watched the academy awards all my life.  From the first time it was televised, until now.  I used to be able to recite also, the films, and the order they were given.  That left me quite a while ago, there were just too many at the end.  I have to admit, my largest disappointment in all these years, was the fact that Brokeback Mountain, lost to such a trite movie.  I had many favorites, that lost over the years, but never one that drove me to tears.  Even though I rather suspected ahead of time, that it would happen.  As you all are aware, the wind was blowing in that direction prior to the night of the awards.  I was, secondly devastated that Heath did not win for best actor.  I has taken me several years to be able again to care about the show.  I don't even have a horse in the race, so to speak this year, and my biggest reason for watching, is to see Michele, and all the fashions.  I would root for Michele, but I know realistically that she doesn't have a chance.  It will go to either Meryl Streep, or Viola Davis.  Its too bad, that it is another forgone conclusion.  She was beautiful as always in that part.  I am satisfied, that she will eventually get one.  She is so great in everything she does.  She has interesting choices, and never does the same thing twice.  She is destined for an amazing career, I am not hoping,  simply because she was in my favorite movie.  It is because I do believe it.

Masterpiece Classic via PBS

Will Maggie Smith leave 'Downton Abbey' after the show's third season?
By Gael Fashingbauer Cooper

"Downton Abbey" will have at least three more seasons -- the third is now in production in the U.K. But some of the stars have not yet agreed to return for seasons four and five, and one of them is a true fan favorite.

Dame Maggie Smith, 77, who plays the Dowager Countess on the hit "Masterpiece Classic" show, has not yet signed on for those seasons, the U.K. Telegraph reports.

Smith plays the tart-tongued mother of Robert, Earl of Grantham, and has offered up some of the most quotable lines on the show. (Struggling with a swivel chair, she learns from Matthew that it was invented by Thomas Jefferson. "Why does every day involve a fight with an American?" she moans.)

Advertise | AdChoices

Other major actors who hadn't yet signed on, according to the Telegraph, include Dan Stevens (Matthew Crawley), Siobhan Finneran (O’Brien) and Jessica Brown Findlay (Lady Sybil Crawley).

There's some good news for fans. Actors Michelle Dockery (Lady Mary Crawley), Elizabeth McGovern (Cora, Countess of Grantham), Hugh Bonneville (Robert, Earl of Grantham), Joanne Froggatt (Anna) and Brendan Coyle (Bates) are all signed through season five.

And it's already been announced that actress Shirley MacLaine will join the cast as Cora's American mother in season three (see her in costume, in photos leaked from the set).

   I am so cited.  I can hardly contain myself.  I must have called 100 times, and finally won...YYYay me...

   I am going to have him sign my Rolling Stone Mag.  Try and get the Details signed too....It has been a dream of

   This is Sound cloud.  It has snippets of Adams songs from the new album.. gives a taste for people who love him.  I think the album is going to be epic.  It is mostly written or cowritten by him. 
Trespassing, Naked Love, Cookoo, Never close our eyes. 


http://soundcloud.com/mindchnger/sets/trespassing-hitpredictor-clips

I am trying to get tickets to see him in person at a radio station for a meet and gree, downtown Portland Sunday.  It will be quite a big deal, and only about 100 people will be there...

AUDIO: The 911 Calls of Trayvon Martin's Death
These audio clips may be hard for some to listen to - but they give us all the best indication of what really happened.



Read more: http://www.randirhodes.com/pages/rrnews.html?feed=393046&article=9924394#ixzz1qAIyzbVM

I am appalled no less ashamed, by the actions of this vigilante.  I am equally ashamed by mr Heraldo Rivera, once again
trying to make cred, by attaching himself to another high profile story.  I am repulsed by his saying that "the hoody, was
equally at fault for Trayvons death."  What kind of a remark is that?   Its like saying that a woman is the cause of her own
rape.  Simply because she has worn a sexy outfit of some kind.  I am always amazed at the logic,, or lack of, that is displayed
when things that should never happen, do happen.

    Both...it was a short interview, and a few songs, it was not an entire set.  He took pics with about 200 people however, and that took quite a while.

  These information snips, probably seem kind of random and difficult to follow.  Sorry, I am just catching them from lots of
different sources.  So I don't lmpw if you want them or not. but they are here for my own enjoyment too.  I had been on
such a Adam withdrawal, I have been craving to hear some new songs.  It has been like giving an addict a hit.  I am giddy.

  my favorite so far.


I wish that this night would never be over
There’s plenty of time to sleep when we die
So let’s just stay awake until we grow older
If I had my way we’d never close our eyes, our eyes, never!

I don’t wanna let a minute get away
Cause we got no time to lose
None of us are promised to see tomorrow
And what we do is ours to choose

Forget about the sunrise
Fight the sleep in your eyes
I don’t wanna miss a second with you
Let’s stay this way forever
It’s only getting better if we want it to

But you know I wish that this night would never be over
There’s plenty of time to sleep when we die
So let’s just stay awake until we grow older
If I had my way we’d never close our eyes, our eyes, never!

              Never Close our Eyes.  next single

       This one has an bit of an interview.  It shows him as the true regular guy that he is.
      I have seen almost all of his interviews, if not all of them.  I really like this one...
      It is very fitting for the song.  He is so tired from all the pub travels, until he is         
      completely open and unfiltered.  (kind of like a kid that hasn't had much sleep.)

                                          Coming this summer 
               Queen   featuring    Adam Lambert           
                                                1986
                                        Queen live at Wembley Stadium
                       
   
     
          Since the concerts with Adam Lambert and Queen have been sold out.

    There is possibly going to be more scheduled.  It has taken under a week for them to sell out. 

     I am going to post this again, for my own use, and anyone else that loves this glorious band......

     I would almost give a year of my probably not too many left years.  To go to one of those concerts. 
     but alas that is not going to happen.  I will be an early purchaser of the videos and DVDs though..
       I wish it would be there.  I have a feeling that
     Queen is going to perform at the Olympics.  Just from some hints I have.  if so they will probably ask
     Adam to be with them...
                                                                               my favorite concert ever....

           I am sure you did.  I know I did as well.  That shows what I always have told my children and grand children.
Whatever is written or said, be it a book tv, or online.  It is simply the opinion of the person writing or speaking it.
I think what I saw in that article.  Was some of them were liked too well, and people got sick of them..  That is the
two edged sword that happens in music.  It can become too popular, an then people hate what they once loved...

   That is a group me and my family would gladly and proudly hang with.  I love the sense of humor, and the absolute way they live the life, they promote. 
 
   Our family is having a sort of divide. Of our reunions and meetings.  Every year the family of my husband and his siblings and the grand, and great grand children have a reunion on the 4th of July.  It is held in a large park, near Knotts Berry Farm in the southern California area.  Myself and my ex-sis-in-law started this thing back when our children were little, 50 yrs ago or so.  We moved to Ore. over thirty years ago.  In the interim period, the yearly group meets have continued.  We only attended one more of them ourselves.  It was on the occasion of my husbands fathers 90th birthday celebration.
   This year, it is supposed to be a huge celebration, and many of the  people my children grew up with in our neighborhood, are attending.  As well as the family.  I know there will probably be up to 4 or 5 hundred people there.
The issue that makes us not want to attend, is that the family has grown with the national religious right people, in their more strident ways.  We used to know more or less everyone "believed in the Pentacost."  They are mostly Pentacostal in their choice of sect.  This was the result of a grandfather, and his children in my husbands family  being Pastors, and "Preachers."  They were usually called "Preacher.  Being from Okla. for the most part.  I could cite you many instances of the depth of the belief they had in God healing and the extent his grandfather went to in order to show his devout compliance.  I might say right here, my husband hated him for many of these kinds of
actions.  He went to many a "Camp Meeting," and slept on the ground, along with every Sunday and Wednesdays at church.  But with all of these kinds of participations, they never as I would say were pushy about it.   They would, when we first married, try to make me, and the rest of the new marrieds comply with the denomination.  In my case they tried to tell me I should not wear pants, or god forbid shorts around them, or even in public.  I soon let them know "they were not going to start telling me what to wear."  "My own parents didn't do that, and they for sure weren't going to do it either."  Having never been a person to display overt clothing style, I didn't see and still don't see any need for an inlaw telling me my choice of attire.  I am always appropriate, and clean.  I think that is good enough. 
   Back to the problem,  these people now dress pretty much the way I do, and don't seem to have any particular need for cover ups beyond the normal everyday attire chosen by the people that live in the warm so. Cal area.
But they are becoming like the right wing people these days, very politically overt and expound about it at the least inclination.  My family being completely opposite of this tact, plus very overtly the opposite to them in our beliefs, will feel the wrath of some of that, when going there, I am certain.  We would all love to go, my kids would love to see again and introduce their own children, and grand children to many of these people.  Most of their cousins, and particularly the neighboorhood friends they grew up with.  But we know it would be an expensive undertaking, and logistically difficult, it could result in quite a breach of the family.  We would ideally like to go and stay for an hour or so and leave, before any problem could ensue.  The financial result of that would be silly.  Therefor we will not go.  Its unfortunate, but we do not wish to start a family scandal.  I hope they all have fun and we may send a skipe or a video to be played there...safer...its hard to cast aspersion or argue with a video..

   It does make me sad.  That the thing that should bring families together, is now causing these kinds of rifts.  Mostly it is because of the old guard becoming so strident, and encouraging the others in their group, and mindset to not only "agree, to disagree."  That being one of my favorite sayings.  But to try and say the others are unfit people, and are "going to rot in Hell."  "I don't think we will."  It is sad.  I am sure that if they know of my strong defense of the gay issues, such as equal right to marriage, equal rights to all things, and that my favorite singer is the very flamboyant Adam Lambert.  They would certainly have something negative to add to that.
   When he came second to Kris Allen on Idol, we happened to be at the home of his sister, and her daughters family.  When I asked to watch some of the televised reports of his singing, and said how much of a fan of his I was.  I was told, "I don't know, he sings ok, but there is something off about him."  I am very aware of the "off" thing.  It was before the RS article where he came out.  But we all agreed that he was different, but in the very good ways an entertainer should be.  I added he is probably gay.  They gave such a me such a look, at that remark.  It was almost like I had said he was Typhoid Mary.  I defended his singing ability passionately, and said "what difference does it make if he is gay?"  I still do not get that thought process.  Its not like he is going to infect people, with his gayness.  He is not going to molest you, or your family members.  I just don't get it.
I would come to a screaming match to defend him, to anyone making hate filled and derogatory remarks about him.  I have a great deal of love and protective feeling for hiim.  I have spent many many hours disputing the negative hate remarks made on various formats.  I would not hesitate to do that with them either.  I am an unashamed Glambert, and he puts so much sunshine in my life, I can be nothing but grateful.  That is much more
than I will ever be able to say for them.

                         Gaydar Radio-
You can install this and listen to it anytime online.

            http://radioplayer.gaydarradio.com/radioplayer/Default.asp?skip=Y&from=player&rate=128&cb2=&cb=2012627.4246586.62165180131.53535.2305

     They play a variable choice of music, and give news that is of concern and informative to the  LGBT community.  It is European based
and seems to have a much more generous attitude about the gay life.  They reported while I was listening earlier, about some guy in
Egypt saying that gays aren't even people.  I don't know what he thinks they are.  Maybe a higher glittery life form, from the Planet Fierce.  Thats kind of what everyone says Adam is.  His brother Neil started that opinion about him being an alien.

draggle \DRAG-uhl\, verb:
 
1. To soil by dragging over damp ground or in mud.
 2. To trail on the ground; be or become draggled.
 3. To follow slowly; straggle.
 
No skirts to hold up, or to draggle their wet folds against my ankles; no stifling veil flapping in my face, and blinding my eyes; no umbrella to turn inside out, but instead, the cool rain driving slap into my face…
 -- Fanny Fern, Ruth Hall and Other Writing
 
You can't run through the streets after the water baths in that thing you draggle around the house.
 -- Susan Fromberg Schaeffer, Anya
 
Draggle is obviously related to this more common word drag. It entered English in the late 1400s. The suffix -le is a verb formation from Middle English, also seen in dazzle and twinkle, among others


*i never used the word draggled before..  I always thought the term to be bedraggle.. or bedraggled.  I suppose it is all the same thing?  Maybe the difference is that you are draggled, in behavior?  Then bedraggled in appearance.  It is a difference in tense.    Perhaps self assessment, opposite
someone else making the assessment?  Anyway it has given me pause.
