Freddie Mercury. Yes, I know he was gay but that doesn't bother me. I love him during this time period (pre-moustache) during the 1970s. His death in 1991 was the first 'celebrity' death that affected me, the kind that "where were you when..." moment. I was, and still is, a big Queen fan as a child.

I was such a She Ra: Princess of Power fan when I was a child while the cartoon was out, I used to imitate her and would call out "In the honor of Grayskull!!!" Now I proudly own the DVDs. Some things in your childhood that you used to love never goes away and carries itself in a special place in the heart.
I feel the need to post this, you can take it anyway you want (a warning) but something came up and I think that it is important to make a note about it. It has come to my attention that both Yoko Ono and Heather Mills aren't exactly the favorite Beatles' wives to Beatles' fans. They both get a bad rap from both press and fans (in truth, all the Beatles' wives have received a negative dart at them but Yoko and Heather have received the worst of the worst) and I do understand it. In fact, Yoko is personally not my favorite Beatle wife and it will be a very rare thing for me to include her in my blog. As for Heather, well, for me, I don't mind her as much as many dislike her and would refuse her presence in Paul's life. My reasons are the fact, as Paul said in divorce court, Heather helped him through Linda's death and she's the mother of Beatrice who I think is a very adorable little girl. I remember when Linda died and I thought Paul would be very much lost without her. In the photos of Paul taken during the year after Linda's death, he looked different, lost, I wouldn't have been surprised if he decided to give up music career and be a recluse but I agree with Paul- when he met Heather, she brought him up to life and he became as active as ever and to enjoy life again. So please be aware, you'll see Heather pop up a few times here and there while rarely you'll see Yoko pop up. I just don't want to see comments saying too many negative things and figured best thing to do was offer up a heads up!
All the best!
All the best!
February 11th would have been Ringo and Maureen's 45th wedding anniversary. However they divorced in 1975 after ten years of marriage and three kids; Maureen died in 1994. I really think they were such a cute couple and I respect them alot for remaining friends after their divorce, continuing parent duties, and Ringo being at Maureen's bedside when she died. I have never heard about an ex-husband staying vigil at his ex-wife's bedside, I'm sure it does happen but it's rarely talked about.

I was looking over these photos and I realized something, when Jasper Jax was with Skye Chandler Quatermaine that was the last time I really liked him. Now Jax has been on my crap list on General Hospital for quite sometime now. It stinks when a character that you really used to like become such a sorehead. I think it's only because when Jax was with Skye, he wasn't obsessed over Sonny like he normally is, especially when involved with Sonny's ex lovers/wives. With Skye, she was neither of those things although she used Sonny to get Jax's attention. It was a happy day when they got married but once when Jax realized that Brenda was alive, it just went downhill from there. I never felt the same way again with Jax; as for Skye, well, I did enjoy her scenes with Luke Spencer! So it didn't exactly crash and burn.
