God bless everyone.

Guest comment on John Walker's death:

I grew up with this incredible talent singing on the radio in the 60's. I graduated high school in '67 and this is one of the groups, and particularly him, that gave us the music that is still played today. I'm an older dad with 14 and 15 year old kids. When I saw news of his passing yesterday, I played "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine Anymore" for them before they got on the school bus. They sat in awe of his voice and I said, 'now that's music". (They both agreed.) This type of news hurts my heart because of what his music meant to me. I mourn his passing and hope time helps his loved ones' hearts heal.

I learned the 10-step to "Lousiana Saturday Night", I learned the 19-step to "Baby's Got Her Blue Jeans On" at Silver Dollar Saloon in Las Vegas, Nv. and "Stand Up" was one of my all time favorites. My prayers go out to your family for their loss, and my congradulations go out to u for being called home by the Father.

Happy Thanksgiving

Happy Thanksgiving everyone. I hope you will have fun. I was home alone for last 2 Thanksgiving days. This year, I will be home with 2 guests. I am so looking forward to relax and eat. There will be a lot of food. I will be doing most of the cooking (including turkey). I plan to impress the guests with my cooking skill. I am excited and nervous. Wish me luck~! I am sorry if some of you are home alone or if you have to go to work. I've been there many times. :( The day after Thanksgiving, I will put on a Santa hat... I plan to wear the Santa Hat until Christmas. (I bought 2 hats, just in case the first one would get dirty, etc...) I am thankful that I have an able body to go to work, exercise, and play. I hope to become financially stable so I can give back to the society. For now, I can use financial help. :( God bless everyone. Enjoy the magic moment. 2010 was fun so far - little more to go... Happy Thanksgiving John

Sorry about late addition.

I wasn't sure how popular the band was (I am not up to date with current music)

Again, sorry about late listing

Ruby And The Romantics

Ruby & the Romantics was an American R&B group in the 1960s. They had several pop and R&B chart records but are sometimes considered as a 'one-hit wonder' for topping the charts in 1963 with their first recording, "Our Day Will Come", written by Mort Garson and Bob Hilliard. 

Ruby Nash Curtis (born November 12, 1939 - 70 years old) - Born in Akron, Ohio, Nash didn't start singing until she was a senior in high school. She joined a group of male singers touring as "The Supremes" in 1961. After they got a record deal with Kapp Records, they changed their name. In 1963, they scored a #1 hit with "Our Day Will Come", and had two more modest hits, "My Summer Love" (#16) and "Hey There Lonely Boy" (#27), but they never emulated that success despite personnel changes in 1965 and 1968. The group disbanded in 1971.

Nash returned to Akron and worked for AT&T. Ruby & The Romantics were given a Pioneer Award by the Rhythm and Blues Foundation in 1997. As of 2001, she was working at a large retail chain and had received no royalties for her records.

And the "Romantics" were:

Ed Roberts (second tenor) - Worked as a bank teller. Died of cancer on August 10, 1993.
George Lee (first tenor) - deceased (cancer)
Ronald Mosley (baritone) - deceased.
Leroy Fann (bass) - Died by violence in New York in 1973

"Our Day Will Come" was sang by many singers such as Frankie Valli and Johnny Mathis.

The latest popular version of "Our Day Will Come" was released in 2005 by a British Jazz Singer (pianist) Jamie Column.  He was 26 years old at the time of album release.

Magic Johnson HIV

Magic Johnson discovered that he was positive for HIV in 1991 (physical before the 1991–92 NBA season).  He made a public announcement on November 7, 1991.

We all thought it was a death sentence for Magic Johnson.

As of now, Magic Johnson's HIV virus is at undetectable level. (he's not virus free).  Magic Johnson doesn't have AIDS. Magic Johnson is not cured from HIV.  Magic Johnson still has HIV virus.

Magic Johnson is not the only person living healthy life with HIV.

The key point was that the virus was detected very early.  And he took very strong medication.  With early detection & drug treatment, a patient has 90% chance of holding down HIV virus.

 Magic Johnson announces retirement Nov 7, 1991

Earvin "Magic" Johnson Jr. (born August 14, 1959) is a retired American professional basketball player who played point guard for the Los Angeles Lakers of the National Basketball Association (NBA). After winning championships in high school and college, Johnson was selected first overall in the 1979 NBA Draft by the Lakers. He won a championship and an NBA Finals Most Valuable Player Award in his rookie season, and won four more championships with the Lakers during the 1980s. Johnson retired abruptly in 1991 after announcing that he had contracted the HIV virus, but returned to play in the 1992 All-Star Game, winning the All-Star MVP Award. After protests from his fellow players, he retired again for four years, but returned in 1996, at age 37, to play 32 games for the Lakers before retiring for the third and final time.

Get over it people. David died while pleasuring himself. Best way to die.

I hope David Carradine's family members and publicists will not try to cover up David Carradine's death. A lot of people die of autoerotic asphyxia. It's about time we raise awareness. Please don't cover up his death. There is nothing wrong with people's desire for physical pleasure. We all pursue physical pleasure. What's wrong is the fact that society is not talking about autoerotic asphyxia. What's wrong is that David's death was not prevented. The society looks at this as something so wrong and twisted. Remember back in the 40's? Your hands supposed to fall off if you do "it". I guarantee you that public awareness will be raised in the future regarding autoerotic asphyxia. It's sad that now is not the time. We'll have to wait for more deaths, possibily more famous deaths, so people will talk about it again. I hope their family will openly talk about it without covering up. Knowledge and awareness is power. It will save lives and create better world. Imagine INXS still has the original member. Imagine David Carradine would live to make several more movies and host more TV shows. We are losing good things in the world, because we refuse to raise awareness. We sell "Girls Gone Wild" "Viagra" and "Extenze" on TV. But we refuse to talk about what's killing people. We see a lot of campaigns saying "Talk to your kids about smoking & drugs". A campaign like that might have prevented David's death. Get over it people. David had a healthy life. I hope he's death will raise awareness to save countless others who didn't know the danger. So, I say this now: Hanging is a dangerous act. Media won't tell you, but a lot of people die from it. Most people do it sitting down and die sitting down. If you must experiment, have your partner with you. If you have done it many times and if you think you have a handle on it? That's when it's going to kill you. Thank you for reading my rare personal blog. God bless.
