Doughnut, Freddie had one of those voices you cant replace.Think about Ozzy Ozbourne how could anybody replace that voice? Black Sabbath couldnt.Queen wont be able to either but they do have the right to do what they know and make music.

Thor I'm absolutely chuffed for you! What a relief that must be! What a crappy weekend you must've had though. Dealing with all the mess and having that worry hovering over you like the sword of Damocles.

Re Brian's guitar solos, I believe it was Gerry Stickell's who said that during guitar solos when Brian got carried away John would throw peanuts at him ! LOL! Bless him!

Thor, glad you won't be financially responsible for the plumber. Those guys make a good living! Mine has replaced several sump pumps, water heaters and garbage disposals for me. I love the guy, but he always seems to be going off on cruises after he does my jobs. Hmmmmmm…...

Please file this under "Stupid But True". I'm obsessed with prime numbers. I wear 7 silver rings. One of them has Freddie's name engraved on the inside. All the others can be easily removed. Freddie's is solidly in place. It won't budge. I suppose it could be cut off with a blade or torch. It keeps him close to my heart.

Thor -

I am glad to hear that you will sleep well tonight, and that the association was honest.

However, I am somewhat concerned and hope that your flooding has not left any significant lingering major or minor annoyances.

My coworker had a toilet valve break spewing water while away for the weekend a few years ago, and consequently he was out of the house for a few months while repairs were ongoing.

So here is my onslaught of questions ...

Does your condo need drywall or floor repairs? Does it need any special cleaning to get rid of any odors? Is there any risk of mold in the house?

Thor - glad your water issues are resolved - what will you ever do with your time now that you don't have to worry about your sink overflowing?? Gardening maybe?? I hear you can grow some good turnips.

Chevyman - I don't think you can be a pain in anyone's arse - LOL

Saint Jiub,
I have my industrial fan blowing over all the wet areas. Hopefully I have caught it in time to not have mold damage. Thanks for your concern

And all others...thank you for your concern too.

Thor- sorry- I am a little behind- no more jokes:)

On another note- I was wondering before this thread began ( including the last one, too) how many years had passed since you seriously started thinking of all those fond memories of Freddie- or did certain things always trigger memories throughout the passing years?

Thor, I'm a condo owner, too. I live in a part of the U.S. where many of us have basements - not very common in California - that are sometimes prone to flooding after large periods of rain. Mold is always a major concern. I attached a link from the CDC "Homeowner's and Renter's Guide to Mold Cleanup After Disasters" (https://www.cdc.gov/mold/cleanup-guide.html). It also recommends you take photos. I hope it helps. If there are any INTERIOR damages in your BR, the costs should be born by your housing association, because it's the complex's fault. It shouldn't come out of your personal homeowner's insurance, that would typically cover interior damages. Do I make any sense? I've been doubting my brain lately.

On a brighter note, have you all seen the awesome video for Five Finger Death Punch's "Black and Blue" (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p8NQUbLQGio) already? Brian May appears 3:25/5:14. OMG, what an entrance he makes, as he reaches for his Red Special! The man is a guitar god. You can't deny his guitar prowess. The song's proceeds go the Gary Sinise Foundation that supports American soldiers, veterans and first responders.

I need to make a Freddie-related comment. Yes, it was endearing how Freddie introduced Jim as his "husband." He was so proud of him!

Correction: "Blue on Black"
See? I can't even get a song's name right.

Excuse me for bringing this up one last time everyone but Sweet is not responding to messages apparently and I hope she sees this. After speaking with Villiers about the subject I feel I may have made Sweet truly hurt. Sweet if you see this please accept my apologies. Your jokes were not funny to me and perhaps I didn't understand the humour but I never intended for you to feel badly about yourself. I could have handled this better and I would like to extend a peace offering of a signed copy of Mercury and Me Jim sent me. One of many he gave to me. If you do see this please message me privately and we can chat from there.


I'd like to ask that everyone else also take a step back from passing judgement on her as I did so perhaps too quickly. If you must discuss it further please do so respectfully and kindly. Something I should have done to start with.

Each of us has own opinion. I think at least on this thread we can say what we think.
A few days ago I had participated in some other topic about Instagram accounts.
I also don't like some pictures and comments on some accounts which support Freddie and Jim. I think it's not appropriate. But that's just my opinion.
@Sweetandtenderhooligan, if you think there is nothing wrong with it and that it's some kind of humor, there's no need to delete your account if it's your account. Continue with that. Someone will always like it and someone will not. It's a fact. I hope you read this.
The good thing about social networks is that we can decide whether we will use them or not. So I don't have account on Instagram, I can't participate there, but I'm looking at pictures and read comments.
I saw the account of the person who is FreddieDearie here, I had what to tell her, and I'll always answer her if she wants a discussion with me here on Queenzone. I don't know, maybe that person is male, never mind.
This is Queenzone and Instagram is Instagram and I don't think it should be so much discussed about Instagram here.
Excuse me for this interrupt.

Black Queen's Kid: Mine is odd numbers. I dislike even numbers.

I live on the odd numbered side of the street, and it's funny but I noticed the first time ever last night that there are 1 to 101 house numbers on the odd side of the street but only 1 - 80 on the even side! (The road sorts of arcs round in like an elbow about 3/4 up the road) Strange!

Does anyone else notice odd patterns? I'm a devil for car numberplates! Trying to make abbreviations out if them, or associations etc)

I know it's not uncommon, we humans all do it on some level. It's called pareidolia, this predisposition for humans to search for and find pattern in random patterns of things. Like the first thing we look for in a random shape is the human form or shape. Trying to find order from chaos, I suppose. I just can't leave pattern finding alone though!

Sorry if that was boring! And it was absolutely NOTHING to do with our Freddie!

Have a great Hump Wednesday, peeps!
