Just for my troll(s) who have asked...

...what I have ever done for Chicago, or even Rogers Park.

Well... in 1979 I was sent down, by the stagehands union, to Chicago from Milwaukee...because I was well-known as a PRODUCTION ARTIST.

In the 87 days I was here in Chicago, I worked a week painting at this mall, including the piece in 'Toys R Us'--my signage.

Continue to ask, perverse troll(s), what I have done for 1982, even in Genova, Italy, 'The Blues Brothers' was playing, demonstrating a heckuva lot of my works to the world!

And you were...where?

Pie Jesu = Lord, have mercy

Although I have never cared for Sarah Brightman's visual presentation, I do really appreciate her voice, which can be close to angelic.

Live performance by Sarah Brightman and Ben De'ath. Taken from 'Andrew Lloyd Webber: The Royal Albert Hall Celebration'.

But I would also like for all of you to know the lyric--just exactly what is being sung in Latin, a language many of you were not schooled in.

Pie Jesu, Pie Jesu
Pie Jesu, Pie Jesu
Qui tollis peccata mundi
Dona eis requiem
Dona eis requiem

Lord, have mercy
Lord, have mercy
You who take away the sins of the world
Grant them rest
Grant them rest

Agnus Dei, Agnus Dei
Agnus Dei, Agnus Dei
Qui tollis peccata mundi
Dona eis requiem
Dona eis requiem
Sempiternam, sempiternam requiem

Lamb of God, Lamb of God
Lamb of God, Lamb of God
You who take away the sins of the world
Grant them rest
Grant them rest
Rest everlasting, everlasting

For those ALL who have lost their lives, especially in this past year:

Rest in peace.

Requiescat in pacem.

This is in honor of those who were injured and perished in Tucson, Arizona. You are all loved, far beyond the borders of your state.

This pretty much describes...

..the Obama Administration, doesn't it?

The Obamas are both rather hedonistic, aren't they?

From Wiki:

Hedonism is a school of thought which argues that pleasure is the only intrinsic good.[1] This is often used as a justification for evaluating actions in terms of how much pleasure and how little pain (i.e. suffering) they produce. In very simple terms, a hedonist strives to maximize this net pleasure (pleasure minus pain).

Personally, I sense they are both 'poseurs'...and should be ousted ASAP!

For my Troll(s)

You thought you could take me down--through slander and libel. How nice.

I think, shortly, you will be whistling another tune, Mikey!

For those of you enamored of Betty White... are my troll(s)...I'd like to say that, unlike Betty, who grew up near the fantasy of Hollywood, I grew up in Milwaukee, Wisonsin, the only daughter of a Milwaukee Police Department officer who became a somewhat-celebrated (for his powers of both inductive and deductive reasoning)Milwaukee Police Department Detective.

As a Milwaukee Police Department detective back then, my father retired in 1965, after having been 'on the force' since 1940, with a salary of $9,600 per year. With that and less, he had supported his loving wife and four surviving children...sent us all to Catholic grade and high schools, and all of us to Marquette University.

His and my mother's sacrifices to make better lives for their children have not gone unnoticed by me, their only daughter.

One of these trolls says I don't look as good as Betty White--that I must have been 'beaten up' along the way. And, they have gone so far as to place my NAME on a pornography site.

We are only as good as our genes allow us--and as MONEY allows.

The comments (which I refuse to publish to you) I have saved from this obviously hateful troll(s) will be very useful when I present them to the authorities, won't they?

One, and only one, human being has seen these comments, which I keep in 'Comment Moderation'--and she was appalled, because she knows me well, and knows who I am and what my goals are.

There are laws against libel and slander in the United States of America.

And I plan to utilize each and every law available to take down this (these) perverted pseudo-citizens!



It's time NOW! Bear down, Chicago Bears!

I don't watch the games as much as I used to...I prefer to wait for playoffs and the Superbowl.

In 1985, I was still living in Milwaukee--and was probably the ONLY Bears fan there (perhaps because I had short hair, wore sunglasses due to an eye injury and had wide shoulders for a woman--my somewhat crazy cousin Bob tried to pass me off as Jim McMahon!), and I just thought Jim McMahon and Walter Payton were the BEST!

This is a great tribute to Mike Ditka and the 1985 Chicago Bears. There are a lot of good memories here, so please, try and watch the entire video.

And Mike, though I've never even had the slimmest chance to meet you, you are still the best coach--evah!

Peter Tork: "Be a hero to yourself."

"Hey, hey, we're the Monkees!"

If you're a 'boomer', you remember the tune. And, if you're a 'boomer', you're classified by some younger punks (who don't realize their faces will change also over forty or so years) as OLD.

Peter Tork has fared quite well, even after beating cancer in the past few years.

What I ask you, my readers, to do, is ask yourselves these questions that the interviewer asked Peter Tork. Write down both the questions AND your answers, put them away for a few years, and bring them out to read them again...and see just where you are in this marvelous journey called 'LIFE'.
