Miscellany but exceptionally relevant information about, or from Michael on, MB.

Thought I would start this thread for there does appear, at times, to be different relevant articles, tweets, retweets, pictures etc relating to Michael but not really fitting into an already recognized thread nor, each of them individually, being able to be grouped together where a relevant thread could be started and so decided on this "Miscellany" thread.   

I hope you agree with its relevance and that you enjoy everything that is put in as well as hoping that many will find interesting tidbits about Michael that can be included and help to make this, whilst a serious sharing of information, a FUN page to be able to visit too and, as is my intention, somewhere that everything which does not have a particular "home" can be placed, so that is all grouped together and can be easily found and located if someone wants to look at.

Here now, so that we can all focus on the main reason for this thread, is a beautiful picture of the "Theme" of the thread.......wonder if MB has ever been called that before ???? LOL. 



Believe this one definitely belongs in here for I would say sharing with us that coconut sorbet is his favourite dessert is both miscellaneous and more than extremely relevant to the "THEME" of this website and in particular, to this thread  !! LOL.

Hope everyone enjoys content and feels free to add their very own miscellany !!! :)

I wanted to let you know that I've deleted the pictures of Dylan and his family from our forum.  These pictures are on Taryn's business facebook page and if you want to check them out, please go there.  I don't feel comfortable pulliing them over to the forum without their permission even though her site is public.  I hope you understand.  Thanks


I respect it Gail.

Glad I let you know what I had done and checked with you Gail and of course, respect your decision.  I thought as out to the public on FB where millions see them then was possibly families way of sharing Christmas photos with those interested when they obviously were nothing to do with Taryn's shop for they are pictures that Holly has sent her sister of her families Christmas and Taryn has decided to share unless, as I said to you, she did not intend to put them out to the public but because she is so used to using her set up for Around the Rosy she had placed them there by mistake:  once before, with a picture she sent on her mobile, she forgot that mobile pictures go out to the public automatically on FB and do not remain amongst friends, as she had intended, with the photo she had posted.

One of my main reasons for bringing them over was with the knowledge that still some members on here are not members of FB and therefore would not see, so thought to share on here, but I will not bring any photos of the family over here again but will share, when they are out to the public on FB, by PM's so, if any of you, especially the European girls, the majority of who are not on FB, would like to see, please let me know and I will PM you things that are posted publicly on FB.

I'm still not positive because I don't totally understand facebook or twitter!!LOL  but I was thinking a public site could be seen by people even if they weren't members of facebook...is that not true?  I think you have to understand that Taryn and Holly are like the rest of us..they post pictures to their sites and Taryn to her business site not thinking that their dad's 1'000s of fans are going to come looking...I guess they should but they dont' think that everything they post is going to get such attention...know what I mean?  I think Taryn posted the pictures of Holly and her family because they were visiting her shop during Christmas and she was just figuring her friends and patrons would enjoy seeing them...neither thinking of all of the fans!  I don't blame the fans for wanting to see them or Sylvia for pulling them over from the public site but I think any pictures they want posted on their dad's site should come directly from them or  him.   I've worked with all the girls over a period of 20 years and know they are just typical girls (women now) and aren't thinking about all the fans when they posted those.  A little protective I guess I am!!LOL   Again thanks for understanding.

You have got to be a member on FB to see what is there Gail but there are millions of people members, not thousands as on this site but millions and if you run a "page" every post you put out has the opportunity to be seen by every member of FB which is millions of people.  A page is an advertising medium it has got nothing to do with friends i.e half or more of the people who have liked my page, MBATW, I don't know who they are for I have never heard of them or seen them but they have seen my page because they are members of FB just in the same way that millions see Michael's official FB page and look at the hundreds of thousands that have liked that and it is the same with Around the Rosy; you don't see that because you are friends with Taryn you see it because it is a page and you are a member on FB;  that page could belong to anyone and you would still see it !!

I appreciate, in some ways, what you are saying about placing the pictures on their dad's site but when they are public on FB and people who have got no interest whatsoever in them have opportunity to see, yet people here who have grown up with the girls and shared what Michael shared through his old fan clubs about them are suddenly, because of the different medium, not allowed to know or see anything just because they don't want to members on FB and that, in some respects, seems unfair to me. Hope you can all see where I am coming from and what I mean but at same time, it is not of major importance and as they are out on FB then those that do want to see them can become members of FB and we leave family off of this site unless, as you say Gail, Michael himself posts the pictures and then we are all on the same wave length and all singing from the same hymn sheet, as they say !!  


Sylvia.  Your wee Scottish friend.


Still not an expert on this but I signed out of my facebook account and tried to get into my page and it won't let me see anything but the cover picture...but when I put the link to Around the Rosy it took me right in and let me see and read anything there..couldn't post but can see anything there...so even if you aren't a member of facebook you should be able to see what's there.

Interesting Gail, so the term "public" means literally that; I thought it was a title FB were giving to every member to differentiate between "friends". With a page it is set to "public" but the administrator of the page can set the privacy options in the same way as you can on your own personal page or groups but any pages I have seen each and every post is set to "public" because pages are created and used to advertise and to impart general information about their subject matter: an FB page and photos contained in it, which are set to "public", is then the same as this site "open" so it begs the question more what is the difference if the photos are shown on here, as to FB, as the sites are exactly the same ? We do already have on here photos and a video from the shop with Taryn, Amelia and Olivia when Taryn gave the newspaper interview and she placed the links on Around the Rosy so if those photos of John, Holly and Dylan are in the shop what is the difference ?

I said to you Gail in my PM about wondering if Taryn had placed them on the wrong site on FB because personally, for me, I cannot see where, looking at those photos, there is any indication they are taken in Around the Rosy but obviously, if you know that for a fact, then okay. To me, when I first saw them and saw caption Taryn has put with one, I assumed they were pictures that Holly had sent the family in CT of her Christmas in CA and that is why she has Dylan dressed in his Christmas outfit and also why she is balancing a Christmas decoration on her head; a partially fun photo of the three of them and that is why Taryn has said on that photo that she can't wait to see the photos from New Year's Eve, i.e wondering what "fun" Holly is going to get up to then.....as I say, purely, my take on !!!

Back to main question of if those photos are shown on here, or not, and it boils down to you, Gail, as moderator/manager of this site what your preference is as to what is shown and that was what I meant in my first reply to your post where I said I respected your decision because you have the final say as to what is posted on these pages. I should like to ask, so that it is very clear, if it is photos of immediate family that are not placed on this site, or of all family, because we do have photos of Helen and Sandra on this site from ones that were posted on FB by MBC which is, BTW, for those not on FB, also a page. I know I am being very pedantic and probably driving you all up the wall but I have got to say that if a decision is reached on this thread what happens in a day or two when it disappears from being the main topic and we have new members coming on who are not aware of decision made on this thread, therefore, I am making the suggestion that the decision reached is incorporated into the Rules governing this site so that people can then be referred to the Rules, or we have Bye Laws to those Rules, which are given to each new member on joining. I feel strongly about this because I am getting fed up with having the feeling that I am getting my knuckles wrapped every time I do something which is either a preference of certain people, or, is an unwritten rule on this site, when to me, what I have done, is not against any rules.

Sylvia.  Your wee Scottish friend.


Sylvia, there are no rules and regulations regarding public pictures (and I guess since her site is public they would be considered public) on this forum.  It is just trying to be considerate and allow them to have a life like the rest of us do sometimes.  If you liked her site then you can reply and comment if you haven't liked her site then you can still see the pictures there and if you aren't on facebook you can still see what's there if you know the direct address that we have both posted here before. So this should give everyone who wants to take the time to go check it out to do so.

 I feel better about not bringing over any pictures unless they are specifically sent to someone and they are told no problem post...which is what the ones on the main blog are.  They were sent by Michael (Holly and new baby and Taryn's new babies and as they grow).  Michael sends all the pictures on the main blog because he wants to keep his fans up on what is happening but they still deserve to have the opportunity to post pictures to their facebook without having them grabbed and brought here unless they want them too.  So if the fans want to check her Around the Rosy site every now and then or if you want to post that there are new pictures and people can go look then I feel comfortable about that because at that point if she wants to control it another way she personally can do that.

I haven't looked at her page or store page. You can be private where no one sees your messages. If the store page is a group, it can be private also, it's a closed group. If i belonged to the group and posted a message, only the people that belonged would see it. I don't know if if it's either, just putting that out there. Twitter? I've no clue. I don't "get" that one.

Hallo everybody!

It has become quiet around our Michael. Finally, maybe he takes once a time out!?

Here a picture of him, because I have not discovered here yet! How I mean, a very nice picture!

Should it exist, nevertheless, already in the forum, then Excuse me! One says: twice holds better!

Only, so that we do not forget how well Michael looks (ha, ha).

Petra Christine (Germany)

Beautiful picture Petra and thanks for putting on here. !!! :)    I have never seen that one and it looks fairly new with the hair colouring and style and at least now we know exactly what his ear looks like .....LOL

Danke Petra !!! :)


Sylvia.  Your wee Scottish friend.


Thanks Petra. Nice photo!!

Robin in M.D. :)
