    Good Vibes for Phil

    My brother Phil is a deadhead from way back -- made it to 95% of all dead shows from '87 to '90 and most of the west coast shows until Jerry passed in '95 (over 200 shows). Some of you might even know him. He's currently fighting for his life with stage 4 cancer and he could use your good vibes.

    For more information, search for Phil Burkett on the gofundme site, and thank you.

    That spammers

    That spammers will even post in a thread where we're vilifying them. I think that this one is especially egregious, given the theme of the thread and the spammer's solicitation for our prayers! That is just about as low as you can get. Isn't it? Time for Marye to break out the flamethrower, once again...

don't worry TL, i'm sure everything is okay. i know it's heart-wrenching but everything will work out. you know what youngsters are like; can't get to a phone, get an offer to chill at a friend's place, living in dream land!! and then they'll admonish you for caring so much!!but for heaven's sake, when you get a chance, please keep us informed. you're all in my thoughts too. take care guys.

please ask your friends sure-she went missing in Neunkirchen, which is in Nordrhein-Westfalen. Closest bigger towns are Siegen and Giessen. 10 hours missing now and no word it is getting dark and cold and Sam has nothing with him. ********************************** I am not young enough to know everything.

hopefully, it's one of those daft things that youngster's do! seems inexplicable that they wouldn't contact you but then funny things get into their heads sometimes.

They had quite a journey, due to my daughter's cleverness. There was a network of kids assisting their flight (from her Warrior Cats forum) and they were in Cologne, Münster, Mönchengladbach, AND ended up being nabbed by the polizei at the train station on the Reeperbahn in Hamburg. Right now they are in the home of a friend of mine, arranged by another friend, Anja. Ole (where they are now) was on his way to grab them himself for us, but decided it was better to alert the police, in case the kids screamed (they don't know Ole, and didn't want him nailed by the cops as a pervert, when he was only being kind) The cops made the actual grab, and took them to the station the Reeperbahn, with the scum of Hamburg-where Ole picked them up. They did this journey on 60 euros total and I can barely wait to see her tomorrow and hear the rest of the story. I am so relieved that she is safe, that I am not angry-YET, and yes in a weird way I am proud of her adventurous spirit-we know know that it was Sam's idea and urging that the run, but once they did, she was in charge.********************************** I am not young enough to know everything.

Will triumph over anger, I think. For a while. I'm so happy that they are safe. TL, I can't imagine how frantic you must have been. Take care...

oh what a relief TL. I am so happy for you. Been fretting all day. Don't be too hard on her..we have something in common. .I ran away to Hamburg when I was 17 and it took them 4 months to find me :-) Lived in Altona just down from the Reeperbahn. 17 is a bit different from 13 though..kids grow up so fast. still beaming CB

I'll take it upon myself to report that Johnman is still in need and facing homelessness. He has given me an address to send mail to and I am dropping a check in the mail today. Since he has chosen not to post that address, I will not either. However you can PM him or myself for it and you will have the satisfaction of seeing 100% of the donation go to him. And I am also relieved that TL's daughter was found unhurt. Thank God! Perhaps she will learn something about a mother's love from this. In the US it seems like so few of these cases end up with happy endings and that is why in the last ten years first responders have moved up their mobilization to within a couple of hours and we have Amber Alerts. In these two cases please take a moment to reflect what you would have been going through if it was you... and as circumstances change all the time it could very well come to be though I hope it never does for anybody anywhere.

that I took that particular karma hit for all of you, and that such a thing NEVER happens to you. "How to make your mother into a senior citizen in 2 and a half days" by Imi Peanut. She is home now, and as the panic adrenaline leaves my body, I am alternating between hysterical tears then giggles, and body feels like I am about 90 years old. This too will pass, after some real sleep and some real food. Thanks for caring-everyone who did helped the hanging on! Now back to directing ALL positive vibes and also financial aid to Johnman. I will ask him where to send a check. ********************************** I am not young enough to know everything. Oscar Wilde

ha ha!, bet that heart was a pumpin', eh?!!such good news though. and yes, some real nice food and a good herbal tea (oh, go on then, a damn fine glass of Burgundy!) and it will all seem like a dream! and thanks lamagonzo for the johnman info; i'll PM him and do what i can. September seems to be being particularly fruity this year!! let's hope, after 8 days in, it begins to calm down a wee bit, ha ha!

Take a moment to remember those who perished 10 years ago. Thank goodness Al Qaeda has lost it's grip on effective destruction. On a much more mundane note, I think the Kansas City Chiefs suck big-time: can we send Pioli back to Boston and Haley back to Phoenix ??!! '9'rs looked good in a late afternoon game.
