Michael has a milestone birthday coming up in February 2018. I ran an idea past Gail that passed with approval. I have small cards that are 2.5X3.5. The idea for the card is not to say happy birthday, but you have room to put a few sentences to tell Michael why you love him, his music or how his music helped you in hard times. It’s should be big enough for a wallet size photo if you would like. Then when he’s home sitting at his desk, he can pull 1 or 2 cards to read when he has the time. Our words will be with him all year. I request a SASE, and I will send you a card. Write your note and put in your picture. When your finished, mail it back to me. You could even send your note on a 2x3 size paper and I’ll attach it to a card. Send your picture to if you like. That would take out the SASE step. For those out of the country, I checked with my postmaster and she said you can put your own postage on the return envelope equivalent to $1.15 US. Email me, Sally, at MYSCRTPSSN@gmail.com and I can give you an address to send your SASE (self addressed stamped envelope). A second option that isn’t as personal, is to email me a short note and I can cut and paste it onto a card for you. I don’t want to handle pictures this way because I’m not that computer literate and don’t want to make errors with something as personal as a picture. Just let me know the option that works best for you. When all the cards are gathered, I’ll put them in some sort of decorate box. And the box of cards will be Michael’s birthday gift from us. It might seem early, but it’s something that we can work on Now through January. I’d like to be finished by February since I would need to get a box and mail it off to Michael. Your welcome to share my email with anyone you think may be interested in contributing to Michael’s milestone 65! Looking forward to hearing from you, Sally
Hi Betty and WELCOME to the website and I do hope you will join us in the forum section we have here which can be found by going to the "Connect" heading on your page and then clicking on "forums" when that appears above and that is where we all come together and discuss everything to do with Michael and below I have given you links into three of our more popular threads that we have and the first is within the section called "Tours, Gigs & Announcements" and in it we leave reviews of shows we have been at and we also place video links that people have uploaded to youtube from shows they have been to as well as photos that maybe taken......basically everything that Michael does whilst on tour we try to capture in this thread and then secondly is a link into a very popular thread of the moment as it is to do with Michael's autobiography which will be published on 29th January and where we are now discussing book signings etc.....very exciting times ahead on that one as obviously there are on the third one too which is to do with MB's new CD which is due out on 26th February and which we have been looking forward to for just about a year now so I do hope you will take the time to look through and enjoy as well as looking through the rest of the forum and enjoying also. Obviously as we are into 2013 a new thread has been started for the Tour Reviews but obviously, very little there so far and that probably will not kick off until nearer 25th January, when Michael is playing at the Jamaican Jazz Festival, but do hope when that gets going you will look in and follow what is going on !! :) I have given a fourth link which is into a thread which gives various hints on how to use the website/forum and I do hope you find it useful and it can be located within the Section called "Off Topic"
If you have any questions about the website or forum please do not hesitate to come onto my page and I will try to answer as best I can and I have to advise you that Gail Atkinson is the moderator of the website so, obviously, you can approach her too if any questions and I should also add someone else's name on here and that is Sylvie Boisvert who is affectionally known as "Sylvie the Solver" ....believe her nom de plume speaks for itself.....and you can also go onto her at anytime to ask any question as you can with any member on the website for we really are a friendly bunch and do help each other when we can !!! :) I should like to make it clear that I am in no way connected to admin, it is only Gail that holds any admin position on the website but I just like to welcome people onto the site and let you know that if you have any questions you do not have to hesitate to ask !! :)
As I say I hope you enjoy being with us and please feel free to leave any contributions you feel are relevant on anything pertaining to Michael in any of the threads that we have for that purpose.
Please enjoy your look around website and most of all, please consider staying with us and giving Michael all the support he so richly deserves !! :)
