Len, that's so gallant of you; it wasn't necessary. ;-) (Arlo, you hear that? That's *my* slot. Or not -- as you wish.)

Yeah, most of the friends stuff goes on the fans page as well, but every once in a awhile there's something that doesn't -- like the recent entry on Capitalism A Love Story. So here's my say on that: Agree it's a good movie and definitely worth seeing, but I thought it lost a lot of its power when he (Moore) got sidetracked on the Jesus thing -- a "preaching to the choir" moment that just felt out of place to me. I also thought the most interesting point he made, but didn't really develop, was the idea that we don't have to just continue debating capitalism and communism/socialism, that we could have something new. I don't know what that is either, but it'd be worth talking about.

On celebrity: I've always been very reluctant to approach famous people in person, partly due to shyness and partly because I'm myself a very private person and understand it can be difficult and risky to just be that open with the world. I will do it if I think I'm doing something positive -- so, for example, after I saw Tao Rodriguez Seeger and his band perform at a very poorly-attended show last week, I walked up to both Tao and one of the other band members to say I thought it was a great show (which was true, and if I hadn't thought so, I'd've snuck out early and unseen or found something else nice to say). I doubt I would have done that if the show had been crowded, but when there are only 10-12 people at a show, including me, it feels wrong to walk away without expressing some appreciation.

On fame: Yes, it's fleeting...I guess the question with Felicia is: will she be the William Shatner of her generation, or the Leonard Nimoy? We'll see, in time.

Yeah, he came to me one nite last week, I think it was. I was in bed trying to get back to sleep & I felt a presence come into the room. At first I thought it was my mom coming in to check on me but then I realized it wouldn't be her at that time of the morning. I got scared & felt like screaming but couldn't. I realized it was Mike. You couldn't see him but it was more like he was a spirit visiting from heaven. Awhile back he came to me when I was in bed & tapped me on my shoulder twice. Weird. I sure miss him alot.

Welcome to the new folks. Arlo is a wonderful man & groovy person...

Made it to Nags Head just fine yesterday. Yesterday Sat I was sitting out on the deck watching the ocean & talking to Mike. I told him I loved him & missed him. I told him if he could hear me please send me a sign. Well it was kind cloudy cuz it was gonna rain later & had suddenly gotten gloomy even tho it was unusually warm. When I said that to Mike, immediately the skies opened up & got lighter & sun started coming out & a beautiful rainbow came out over the ocean. I just know that was Mikes answer to me & that he hears me from up in heaven & still loves me. I was so touched & felt such love. I think it was even neater than the rainbow I saw in Hawaii in the 70's.

I took some pics of it & video filmed it too to havea record of it. It eventually faded away sadly. But I know Mike made it happen.

I put one of the pics of it on the internet for everyone to see. It is here:

Yes, that was a beautiful story, thanks for sharing Cheryl H!
I like the picture you have for your icon (or whatever it's called) too.

He is so sweet to me even in death. The pic is one of him eating pinto beans in WV. Man, I miss him so much. He is my rainbow and my guardian angel...
