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
ansonsten sieht ja kein Mensch, alles Gute! schön, von Deiner tollen Erfahrung gelesen zu haben. Ich habe gestern in Erlangen das gecancellte Konzert erlebt :-( aber ich hoffe sehr, dass es noch für München morgen klappt..es wäre so toll.....Christine
Hi Christin and have eventually found your blog at foot of comments but the blogs are not published to everyone and believe you have to invite people to come and look at your blogs because nobody gets notified about them and personally I don't understand the reason for them. Thanks for your review and I am so glad, as I said before, that Michael did hold your hand....wonderful and thanks for sharing !!! :)
Just touching base because haven't heard from you for a while and just wanted you to know that I hope everything is okay with you and that you are enjoying and keeping track of everything that is happening on the MB front and that you are enjoying the summer too !! :)
Take care Christin and I do hope everything is well with and your family !! :)
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you, after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me My E-mail address (email@example.com ) for the full details. Have a nice day. thanks, Path.
Hi Christin, I've just read your comment on the "Promo tour " blog, about the low cost of the new U.K. CD. My guess is that it's because it's a compilation and the packaging must be less elaborate than the one that was made for "Gems" alone. I hope that answers your question. Take care sweetie and have a great day. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada
The reason they (MB CD"S) are so cheap is because he is not as popular as he was 20 years ago, and the songs on various CD's are repeats from previous earlier released CD's. I like MB, too, just tired of buying a new CD and it has all older released songs on it. Really??? Waste of money.
Wow, Christin, Deine Wallpapers sind ja toll - ich habe keine Ahnung, wie man so etwas macht - LOL. Aber ich habe in den threads gesehen, dass Du einige youtube videos nicht sehen kannst. Falls Dir noch niemand dabei geholfen hat, dann schick mir eine friend's request und ich gebe Dir die Infos, die ich auch habe.
Thought I would let you know that Gail has started a new thread in the section General Chat about MB and it is to do with a new book Michael has coming out in November and you can pre-order from Amazon.
Hi Christin, sorry for the delay responding. To answer your question, Orrin is Michael’s older brother and they have a sister between them: Michael is the baby of the family. I met his mom Helen and his daughter Holly in ’02 also. You know Christin, I don’t own a digital camera, so I don’t have many digital pictures of myself, that’s why I used that one, but I’m really glad because it’s a great conversation starter. Some people have asked if this was Michael and some thought he was even my husband! Lol I don’t know if I’ll ever meet Orrin again, but I keep writing to him and he’s always been very kind to me. Oh I do hope you meet Michael someday too! He’s supposed to return to Germany this year so keep your fingers crossed. Oh Christin, you should check the “On-line updates” thread, Dianna uploaded more issues. Well, I gotta go, I have a busy day today. Take care Christin and talk to you soon. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada
Thought I would let you know about this thread that has just been started and if you have found it already sorry for duplication but it is in the section General Chat about MB and it is called "On Line" and it was started by Dianna who is a girl from Australia and what it consists of is links into a lot of things from Michael's previous fan clubs that because those girls were members of they received and have kept all of the items and Dianna is sharing with us what she has kept over the years. Thought you might be interested in having a little look at !! :) I love your picture above - gorgeous !!!!! :)
Hi Christin, you’re very welcome for the info. Yes, the man next to me on my picture is Michael’s brother Orrin and he’s a musician/singer too and he’s a sweetheart! If you want to know more about him, go to www.orrinbolton.com
I met him twice, at the old MBC fan reception in 2002 and 2004. The picture was taken in 2004. I bought Orrin’s first CD in 2001 out of curiosity and wrote to him to let him know what I thought of it. He responded to my message so he knows I support him in whatever he does and he’s very appreciative. He released a second CD in 2010 and you can listen to sound samples and also buy it on his site. He’s always been very nice to me and I love my picture with him. Take care Christin and thank you for asking. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada :D
Hallo Christin, in response to your comment on the "Michael's birthday, sending cards" thread, you should just wait until Gail, the moderator of this site, posts something official about it. Since this is supposed to be for next year, we have plenty of time to get prepared for it. I just thought you should know. Take care sweetie. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada
Hallo Christin, thank you for the friend request! I'm glad you've already found friends and at least one from Germany already! I hope you're having fun on the forum sweetie. Take care and have a great weekend. Hugs, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada
