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
It's OK, thought maybe you could come. But next time MB is in NY we will make plans for sure! Cool you are seeing Barry Manilow, I know how much you like him. Sorry your brother was affected badly by the hurricane. I can't imagine having to move out of my home, and he must have lost a lot of things. What I went through was bad, but at least I still have my home. I hear terrible stories every day from my customers at work. Some lost so much, Jersey will never be the same and it will be years to rebuild. But personally, I am doing well.
Just wondering if there is any way you could go to the New Brunswick,NJ show Feb 20th? Is it to far from you? Let me know, I got tickets already with 2 others. Would like to meet up with anyone else going, maybe have dinner someplace before the show. Would be fun to meet other Bolton Buddies! Stay in touch.
OMG Helena, so good to hear from you girlfriend! I want to respond in length and properly to your PM, but just wanted to thank you for writing now and your thoughts for me on my birthday. God bless you girl and all your family. Glad Fulvio is doing better and hope your mom is well too. I got a huge disappointment with the news of the postponement of MB's book today, but your name in my in-box put a big smile on my face, thank you Helena! Take good care of yourself sweetams, thank you so much for writing and hope to respond soon. Big warm bear hugs to you, sincerely, your still nutty friend Sylvie <3 xxx
Hi Helena, I don’t know if the news or should i say the rumor has made it to FB yet, but Camron, Michael’s backup posted that Michael’s next album will be a Motown album! So we’re starting to buzz about it and Sylvia said she’d love for Michael to cover this song, which I found by Boy George and quite enjoyed so thought I’d share:
Hi Helena, I’ve been meaning to send you this song for a long time and it’s just been uploaded on YouTube! It’s called: “When there are no words” and it was off the U.K. version of “All that matters” that was a gorgeous soulful album produced by Baby Face in '97:
Hi Helena, sweetie pie, how the heck are you? I was going to write to you today! I’ve almost caught up to my wall comments and doing well on E-mails but my PM’s, not so much. I got side-tracked yesterday because I found a blog I thought I had deleted, (it’s at the bottom of my profile page) so I’m catching up today. So good to hear from you! :D Good to hear you’ve had a nice Easter and your mom had a good birthday, I hope she’s doing well. Oh I know you’re counting the days to Barry: I checked the thread last week to check how many days you had left! :D Girlfriend, no wonder you’ve had stomach issues: you’re stressed out! You should pop over to the tour thread by the end of the week: Dianna already has one review but should have at least one more since she’s seeing Michael at the Sydney opera house twice. I’ve been lucky with allergies myself, but I feel for you girl: you need a break somewhere, poor kid! Oh I think you’d have to be in pretty bad shape not to go see Barry... :D No, Sylvia hadn’t told me about your Ipod. So how do you like joining the 21st century with your Ipod? I’m not there yet! Lol I thought you were still busy at work and that’s why you weren’t posting. I miss you around here girl... :D I’ll update you more in my PM girl, but be sure to check my blog and tell me what you think. It was great hearing from you Helena, take care girlfriend. Big warm hugs to you, sincerely, Sylvie from Canada xxx
Hiya Helena, just touching base sweetie, since we haven't heard any sign of life from you in at least a week. I almost left you a message yesterday, saying you had all the time in the world to respond, since I've heard Facebook was closed yesterday! lol In any case, glad you enjoyed the videos sweetie, I hope all is well and have a great lunch! Take care. Big hugs, sincerely, your nutty friend Sylvie
Hey Helena, how are you girl? Well, I hope. My E-mail notices from the forum are getting to be selective again so I had to do the rounds on current threads for updates, but I 've noticed that you haven't posted an update on your concerts next weekend and you were supposed to get an update on Monday. Just checking up on you sweetie. I had a fun day yesterday thrift shop hopping but today is back to business calling for technicians for updates on the computer: never a dull moment! :D Take care Helena and hope for you that no news is good news. Big hugs, sincerely, your nutty friend Sylvie xxx
There are a bunch of songs you haven’t heard yet, but they’re not on YouTube... :D Anyway, hope you enjoy it and hope you’re feeling better sweetie. Remember, you have to be well for your big weekend so take it easy... :D Have a great week Helena and enjoy your lunch! Big hugs, sincerely, your nutty friend Sylvie xxx
I’m multi-tasking right now and was listening to music on the computer and wondering if I’d ever shown you, hope you enjoy it! :D More news soon, take care. Big hugs, sincerely, your nutty friend Sylvie xxx
Hey Helena, backed up in messages as usual but wanted to thank you for your comment on my art work, I appreciate it. :D Hope you and your mom are doing well sweetie, hope to talk to you soon. Big hugs, sincerely, your nutty friend Sylvie
Hi Helena, thank you very much for your message sweetie, I’ve sent you a PM. It’s been a good while since we’ve exchanged longer messages girl, I’m a little late in news. Is this the pain your mom had been having for so long? Ah, poor sweetie... My friend had shingles not once but twice and I hear it’s very painful, my heart goes out to her, give her my best, will you? Your mom must be under too much stress, I hear that’s often related: tell her to take it easy on herself. Cool for you that your office had a Xmas party, sounded like fun! Wow, karaoke, did you sing anything? :D That’s okay, you can tell me all about it when you have time sweetie, just make sure you read your PM. I wish you and your mom the best and hope she’s better soon. I have either allergies or a cold myself, which I haven’t had in eons but I’m functional so can’t complain too much. I got all my holliday cards and parcels on the way so all is well! Take care my friend, have wonderful and relaxing holidays and talk to you soon. Big warm hugs to you, sincerely, your nutty friend Sylvie xxx
I got it, honey. How's your mom's eye? Is she seeing better and clearer out of both her eyes since their surgeries? Hope so. Most people it works with but not all. Mom wasn't that lucky. Hope you're well. I can't complain. I thought about you when I heard about Barry manilow's health issue with his heart. I'm praying as one of the Bee Gees, Robin Gibb's quite sick with his stomach, colon&abdomen.
Hi Helena, sorry I have been out of touch but I have been off-line for a week and I am having a tough time swimming laps in this sea of messages! :D Well, while you wait for a response from me, I will give you something to help you wait. Someone posted this on another thread so I will share, enjoy!
