Blenkolove - Happy hump day although it is almost over - I'm always a bit behind with the time zone - love the camel commercial though - it makes me laugh every time I see it:)

Russia - thanks for the info about those authors-it's interesting to hear the views from other countries - it amazes me that people just won't accept the fact Freddies was gay.


Chevyman - I don't know how you do it - watching a three-year-old is no easy task for anyone. - what a wonderful grandmother you are!! Let him dance to some Queen music!!

doughnut - just curious as to when this encounter with Brian and the girl with the photo occurred - I can't imagine being hounded by fans all the time.

Squirrelly one - thanks for the insight on Queen productions - I had no idea there was a continual need to misrepresent the real Freddie Mercury - Brian and Roger seem like good guys - I am sure they had their reasons for the way Freddie was portrayed in the movie and we must remember the key word being a movie.

Thor and Lee, good luck with the Live program. You will do fine. Just be yourselves and your genuine personalities will come through. You will have friends listening, though I'll have to wait for the YouTube version.

Help! When I go to Villiers Instagram page ( where I got the link to her YouTube channel) it says the page isn't available. Does anyone have a link to her YouTube channel? I would hate to miss seeing the session with Lee and Thor even if I'm not able to watch it live.

Thank you Emdee0809. I just listened the chapter on Freddie's parents.

I wish that we had all had "perfect" families, but I doubt that any of us did. Maybe you didn't marry the right person and produce grandchildren for your parents. Maybe you didn't go down the right career path (my father wanted me to be a lawyer but I became a chemist instead).

Here is my song - you are perfect just as you are. Your message and career and contributions have value. The world is a better place because you are here. Thank you for being the person you are. The universe knows how special you are. Carry on, carry on, because you really matter.

Lee and Thor, I second everybody's positive thoughts and energy about the upcoming Live. Break a leg, boys!

P.S. St. Christopher is the patron saint of travelers. I don't believe Goodyear tires were around in his time.

I'm currently trying to ride out a cold and I lost my voice (yay) yesterday. Just getting it back. So Thor, feel free to take your time on doing the live. I sound Darth f*cking Vader.

There's no need to be nervous, you guys are going to do great and it's a very laid back chat. The conversation will flow naturally, I'm sure. As long as the wifi is strong! Lol

Thank you all of you well wishers, I really appreciate it.

Villiers, I leave on Tuesday Apr. 23rd at about noon. I hope we can do this thing Monday, Apr.22nd. On Monday I am only busy from 10:30 AM to 12 Noon. It would be nice to do the live sometime within the 12:30 pm to 6:00 pm time slot. That is Pacific Daylight Time or are we now in Pacific Standard Time...I always get that mixed up.

I'm glad your journey was uneventful. The "Tire Gods" must have been looking down upon you with favor during this trip. You were probably singing "Don't Stop Me Now" in a commanding voice and they took notice!

Hi everyone! I'm off on a day trip to celebrate the 10th wedding anniversary (and belatedly 20th year together). Happy to see Thor traveled without problems this time, I wish all of you a good weekend and for those who celebrate it in any way an extra happy one. Depending on the time I don't think I will be able to follow the live but I wish you guys a good luck and I will surely catch it up later on yt.
