Hi GALS'

Wanna see a blast from the past??? That would be me *hahaha* :wave: I did a quick and random drive by of my favorite place and what do you know... we are now over 6000 strong! HOLY COW! I can still remember the first day we were officially "on our own". (We did some serious celebrating I can tell ya). Dana girl look what you GALS have done. A world wide meeting place for fabulous women (couple of men too huh).

Hi Swannie, and Ms. Sporran yours were about the only names that I saw and recognized (oops still cant spell) HUGS to yas!

well I'm off to look around a bit more..... sooo many drooly pics and sooo little time! Posted Image

OMG it's TONI!!!! Where the heck have you been girl????? It's really been a LOOOOONG time since we saw you here.

Barb (becozy) is still keeping us up to date on all the latest and greatest. LadyFran is still around but she's having computer issues (a dratted cable that died and the replacement is taking its sweet time getting to her) - and Bethy is still cranking out siggies in her workshop. Spot is of course still here but spends most of her time in her "comfort zone" (aka The Gutter). And Katie (Songbird) and Libby (touchmetrustme) and and Mel (Abrock) and Jill (discoveringme) and Linda (givemeabeach) among some you may recall. But others have also moved on to new interests and pursuits as is like to happen. Hope you'll stick around for awhile and catch up!

oooH...I see some NEW Gerry pix!! :wuv:

Hi Ladies!! :wave:

I am just "recovering" from three very full and busy days out with my sister. Today was Disneyland...she really wanted to take me because I have not gone to DL since 1985!! Wow, I am tired!! She drove back towards the airport so she can be near by to catch her morning flight home tomorrow, so we just said our goodbye's tonight. She lives in Nevada, so I am lucky to see her once a year.

Did you know that they just had the "grand re-opening" of Its A Small World ride? They now have added some well-loved 'new' characters....Alice in Wonderland, Cinderella, Jasmine & Alladin, Simba, Nemo, Woody, and Ariel to name a few. It is definetly for the little ones. This was the first time I got to see the addition of Johnny Depp as Capt. Jack Sparrow in the Pirates of the Caribean ride. How funny!

While going thru the Pirates ride, I told my sis that they could turn that into the Phantom Of the Opera ride, and sail thru the Phantoms lair!! Just change the boat, add an oragan, a swan bed...(and GERRY!)...and Raoul tied up.

Blue Jean, your new Gerry siggie is cute...what a cute picture of Gerry!! I guess that's a new one that I've missed...just can't keep up anymore like I used to.

Wishing everyone a wonderful week!!

Nancy

Omfg.....

I just popped onto youtube to look for something in my list of faves on my channel, and all 3 of my fanvids have been disabled by them for "a possible copyright infringement" because I used 2 Josh Groban songs and 1 Jewel song in my vids. Apparently WMG has a problem with this even though it's a compliment from the fan to have spent so many hours meticulously editing clips and placing them just so to the song which inspired the artwork. There's no way for anyone to save the content or sell it or use it in any other than manner than to simply view it. I can't even resave my own damn videos back to my computer.

:tantrum::tantrum::tantrum:

They've been on my youtube account for 8 months and just now they get flagged???? If I had any clue i was doing something wrong I'd never have put them up. People put these kinds of home-edited creations up all the damn time. I mean wtf??? GAH!!! I'm sooooo ticked off LOL.

The only reason I even made the youtube channel was because I am having difficulty burning the vids onto a cd to transfer them to my new comp. I burn them, and my new comp still thinks the disk is blank. I was thinking I could just upload em then save em on the new comp from the net but it won't even let you save your OWN work. Grrrr. :grrr: Now I'm gonna have to figure something else out cuz I spent too much time and love working on those. Talk about insulting...

My day was great til I saw that *sigh* :fook:

Stardust,

What type of program do you use for buring CD's? I was using Nero to get stuff off my dying laptop. It said it was burned & when I went back it wasn't there. So I was lucky and had 1 2G memory card & 1 4G memory card & I had to move my stuff over to my new laptop and it took forever. Should you try using a DVD to burn your vids too? Maybe too big?

Sorry that your vids got taken down.

Nancy:

Sounds like you had a blast. I've never been to DL only DW. Cept in DW they didn't update the POTC ride. Cool you got to see the update with Johnny Depp. I remember seeing that as part of the bonus footage for one of the 3 movies.

Good morning(well, it's still morning here) my friends...just a quick run through to say hi and to check on all my friends...still no Frannie??

Anna, so good to see you my dear. I know real life is so much fun for you so I forgive you for being gone so much... :kiss:

Elissa, I know it's a disappointment in ways but I KNOW you're going to be so happy having your baby back closer (I know I would!!).

Suzie, you are going to have such fun...I can't wait to hear all about it and see all the pictures!

Nancy....FINALLY....you're tired from FUN instead of WORK.... :goodjob:

Hi Toni...I remember you a wee bit...lol...you must have left when I joined the support center or something...but anyways...welcome back!

Star, that is horrible....oh to have gone to all that work and now to lose it is heartbreaking and maddening!

hugs to all.

love,

Sue

Sapphyre- I use NTI cd & dvd maker on both computers, and sometimes the built in windows cd-burning program since NTI decided to download the lastest update on my old comp in JAPANESE. :bonk:

Irish- thanks honey, i'm sure I'll figure something out.

I'll figure out a way to rescue them off the old comp somehow...

:hugs:

Star, have you tried downloading one of the free programs like express burn/express rip? The one is free and the other is free on a trial period...and I use them to copy CD's and to burn data files....

hugs,

Sue

(at least you know it's still there someplace!! That's a good thing!)

I was notified by youtube that they would be taking down my one and only fan-vid which used a Josh Groban song. I still have it on my computer, plus I had Mel (Abrock) load it to her hosting site for sharing here on GALS. I only used YT to share it with people who couldn't get it from here. It is a shame that so many are being taken down, because I actually bought and paid for several copies of the CD the music came from, so it isn't like I pirated anything. Oh well, I can't even get to that site from work, and I rarely have time to from home. I hope you are able to salvage your work, StarDust. I recently bought a 250gig external harddrive for a about $80 and backed up all my pictures and videos - which only took about 10% of the space on that external. I just didn't want to lose stuff that is irreplaceable, like all my digital pictures. I lost some once before when the old computer died and I hadn't backed up everything, I don't want that to happen again.

:wave: to all - gotta get back to work!

Ok I went to walmart and bought a usb drive (flash drive). Hopefully that should solve the problem of getting the files off the old comp, stored in a safe place permanently, and placed on the new comp for my enjoyment.

Wish me luck :D

:hugs:

Star

P.S. A big hi and :hug: to everyone! I know I don't post often, but I lurk everyday and I love knowing you angels are here. You guys make the day even brighter than it already is. :grouphug:

Irish - love your siggy. I will never tire of seeing Gerry in that kilt. I was so disappointed that he didn't attend (and walk down that runway) the Dressed to Kilt affair. I guess he can only do so much and he does look very tired in those Empire pics.

Raina Snow - where are you? Haven't seen you in a long, long time.

Have a great evening, Gals.

Cheers!

CELINE!! :hug1:

What a nice surprise to see you here again!! It has been a Verrry loooong time!

How are you these days? How is life in Ireland?? Are you planning for Vegas this year? I would SO love to go but with times the way they are, I don't think it's gonna happen. :tantrum: That first year really was special, not only was it the very FIRST Gals con but there were so many there from overseas, like YOU, and it doesn't seem like we're all make it back there again...oooh, I better stop talking like this, it makes me sad.

But here's :hug: from me!!

And HELLO to everyone else,

Love, Nancy :wave:

Susan,

I wonder why youtube is doing all this? Eventually it'll be home clips and nothing more, well MAYBE movie trailers.

I mean musicians began to not allow embedding for their vids, then it went to taking them down altogether, then fan vids were ok and I saw a lot of people say who did the song & they had no copyright on it and it was just for a fun fan vid.

What's the harm in a fan vid especially when you didn't steal anything?

I want to look up songs & such & before long they'll be gone. Heck we got lucky during dance practice to find music videos for The Time and even Janet Jackson's Rhythm Nation.

Shoot I was told by our lead female vocalist to run on youtube before the Prince on Jay Leno, last week was taken down.

I'm not on myspace much any more but I like having music vids & TV clips & I have tons of friends who make fan vids for fun.

I mean what if I decide to make a fan vid (albeit nowhere near as nice as the ones I've seen) and ASK the band if I can borrow a song of theirs and make sure they get credit, etc. Will youtube yank it even though I'm with the band and got their permission?

Youtube is turning into snooz-tube.

I mean someone showed me The Coors, Breathless fan vid of Gerry. I was lucky to find the original video for the band.

We're not selling or pirating stuff. We want to share.

I know I'm a wee bit off topic but it's annoying. Don't make youtube & then take away the fun of it.

What if I make a fun video of my flesh & blood family & set it to a pretty song, youtube will tell me to remove it? I'm not going to sit there and sing it myself.

Good luck Star!!!

My understanding is that youtube isn't at fault. It is the music companies, or those holding the rights to the music, who ask for things to be taken down. Just like any site, if you are asked to take down copyrighted material you have to do it whether you agree with the request or not, because failing to do so can land you in costly legal trouble. If youtube refused to remove content after being issued a demand to do so their whole site could be shut down. So, while we may not like it, we may not agree with it, we do have to understand that whoever owns the rights, whether it is to the musical content or the photo and video clips used, they do have the right to control how their material is used. Can you imagine having to police every single fan video created to decide if you liked the way it used your music? There are some amazing, beautiful, touching videos out there but there are also some horrid ones that no artist would ever have wanted to be seen. So I guess that's why it comes down to some saying they want none of them out there, eliminating the good and the bad.

Good morning, afternoon evening Ladies,

Sooo nope I'm staying home. I will try again tomorrow. Hubby's not soo happy but he gets why I aint goin! :lalala: (I'm a big chicken)

Hey there Celine I saw ya *big squishy hugs* how ya been?

I took a quick trip to the gallery...........HOLY HANNA! Now of course I will have to mop up around my pooter before something shorts out! (Its a new pooter, can't have it dying before its paid for haha) :bonk:

I hope it works Star!

I'll be leaving tomorrow for two days...I'm going down to stay at my son's. He's having a "procedure" done Friday and he has to prep for it all day tomorrow and so I'll be taking care of B2 and taking Bryan to the hospital on Friday (this is just a precautionary thing....nothing serious we pray). I hope to be able to come home Friday night as I don't want to be gone from Dan'l for too long (but he keeps reminding me that he doesn't need a babysitter...lol)...

My kitty had quite the experience...but she's alright thank God. She must have climbed inside my car engine and went for a ride with us!!!!!!!!!!! The other day Dan'l had a doctors appt and after that we went shopping at a couple of stores. When we left the house I called to Sadie but she didn't come out and so I thought she must have gone out in the back. When we got home I called to her again and this time she cried out long and loud (which she NEVER does)....Dan and I went crazy trying to find her...I'd call for her and she would cry out but I couldn't find her!!!! Dan opened the hood of the car and we couldn't see her in there either but the noise was coming from that area. I got down once again on my knees to look under the car and called to her again....just as I was looking under the car Sadie cried again....she was lodged down under the engine in the grill of my car!!!!!!!!!!!!! My poor baby! Her only injury seems to be a scratch on her nose. But I certainly hope she learned her lesson...I mean it isn't like she doesn't have enough places to hide and enough beds!! lol

thanks Bonnie :wuv:

hugs to all.

love,

Sue

Sue - just wishing you God-speed and safe return. Enjoy being there with your loved ones.

It is just snowin' to beat the band here in Colorado. Don't know how big that cloud must have been - cause it's sure dumpin' the white stuff.

Raina Snow - I'm still wondering where you are, Toots! You and I both need to sleep tonight - maybe we could sing each other to sleep? Do ya' think?

Hope you Gals are all warm, safe and content (whereas I am freezing!).

Cheers!

Oh Sue, that must have been quite the experience for your little fur baby! Hope all goes well with Bryan and that you enjoy your time with B2. Hugs and prayers to you and Dan'l, always.

Hi again, Toni! It's great to see you here but sorry you weren't able to make it to your visit with hubby. I was in Jackson Hole for a training in October 2006 and it was just gorgeous, but the group who went through the training just before mine got snow and ice. Since a lot of the training takes place outdoors it wasn't much fun for them, I'm sure.

Sue, your fur baby must lead a charmed life! Poor scared wee mite! Have fun with B2 (I know Bryan won't be having fun!). Don't worry about Daniel. He can spend the time watching guy stuff on TV and ordering pizza and beer behind your back!

Sending hugs to all my sweet GALfriends. Loves ya all!

Suzie

Hi Gang :wave:

Star - what a drag to have your work pulled off of youtube. I know they take hours to make those beautiful creations.

Damm those video police!

Sue - OMG what an experience for your kitty! That's amazing she only got a scratch on her nose. That must have been traumatizing!

My cat recently got her head stuck in the handle of one of those plastic grocery bags for a couple of hours while we were out. When we got home she was just a scared wreck. It took her several days to get back to normal. Glad your kitties OK

Have a good time time with B2 and Brian, after his procedure. As always prayers to Dan'l.

Hope everyone is having a good week.

Hugs,

Cheryl

I know, I know, it's been far too long. Have had a very busy time of it with book launches, getting books out for review etc. It's been fun but tiring.

Missed all the goss lately too *sigh*. So now a lot of catching up to do.

Hugs to all

Cat
