Subject: "Kickstart the Knight "Address list

This is  posted with permission from Lisa and Don. :)

This is the most up to date list.please disregard earlier address lists you
might have.
..............................................................................
....................................
Write for the Knight! (this section is for snail mail writers! (VERY
important to keep doing!)

Letís redouble our efforts and really let "The Powers That Be" know that we
want more Forever Knight! The main idea is to be honest. Tell them your age,
where you live, how long you've been watching Forever Knight and how much
you'd like to see it back on TV. Do not, however, put anything on the
envelope that might indicate you are a FK fan or are writing about the show.
These letters are often considered "fannish" and you run the risk of being
ignored.Be business-like...explain why you're writing and why you think it
will be profitable to have the show back in production. Tell them what kind
of Forever Knight merchandise you have bought, and what you would like to
buy. BUT TELL THEM YOU WANT MORE FOREVER KNIGHT!

powers,
such as Bonnie Hammer and Stephen Chao. If you have already signed, then
just spread the word to others who have not. Also, if you have a FK page

Forever Knight has been dropping due to low voter turnout on  the Global 100
Charts!! We
were almost to # one!! I do send these to TPTB, lets show them how much we
love this show by voting  for it on this all important chart!
Please keep up the voting everyone, and
remember you can go back to renew your votes.they arte tabulated once a month
. Try to strive to be a High
Level voter too (can vote up to 30 points).
Keep it up and our beloved Knight will be #1!!
Voting Address: http://www.global100.com/item.asp?Item=51259
..............................................................................
................................................

There is another way to show TPTB how much you would like the FK
returned....

Thought Up By wonderful devoted fans such as yourselves.....

It's called "Operation Postcard Overload" as was told to KtK, "When
we all send letters to Sci-Fi/USA, we get postcards back, so why not send
postcards to them?" Its easy! Postcards are everyplace! How about postcards
representing the places you live? England, Austrailia, Germany, USA, all the
different states......
FK fans are all over the globe! Lets show TPTB that the World wants it
back!!!

Send the cards to:
Bonnie Hammer and Stephen Chao (addresses above)
..............................................................................
............................................
******E-mail #'s to help the cause!*******

(Just for the record) these websites are not to be confused with any of the
"Vote for your favorite this or that, these sites are very important to the
cause!)

Write everyone! E-mail's a quick, easy way! Spend that hour, you'd normally
be watching FK writing a letter(s) to Sci-fi at this address:

feedback@w.......

Why don't we make this a daily thing? Every day when Forever Knight should
be on at its time slot we e-mail Sci-fi about putting it back. Just a
thought, but if we ALL do it, it may just help get them to notice us,
especially if they start getting tons of e-mail at that hour.

http://www.ktk.op.nu  (the official Kickstart The Knight Website)
This is where to go for all the latest happenings in the world of
FK!!!(recently updated!)
..............................................................................
...........................................
One way to get some attention is to hit
the Sci-fi Channel  Bboard with posts about how much we want FK back with new
eps or movies AND how much we want it back on the schedule! We can post new
messages, even sign a post there like we did with post 1000. One note however
is that new posts are
saved alphabetically on that board so a new original post to the board will
not appear exactly at the bottom of the last page
PLEASE EVERYONE SIGN! And also spread the word to other lists or newsgroups,
just let everyone know! The Knight must continue, along with NEW episodes!!
a brand new post has started a couple of weeks ago, by Kristin,(our newest
Ktk member.)we have not had a very good response,which may lead TPTB to think
they are winning and we are slowly losing interest and going away!We really
have to show them this is not true! Please take some time while online to go
over and write a little message ,every one of you count!!! ask for the return
of Forever Knight.  We ALL would like to see it back wouldn't we? Feel free
to e-mail Sci-fi while
 The NEW post can be found here:
http://www.scifi.com/bboard/browse.cgi/1/5/1686

Please add your name and letters, and also help to spread the word about
this.

that you feel would be important, please send them to me at:

And just to let everyone know, in a week or so i will be placing the newest
KtK Ad in the Hollywood Reporter, asking for more FK.The Ad will be available

lists as to the date/dates it will appear in the Hr.so stay tuned!

Heck, that's nothing. My speakers wouldn't work for nearly 4 months. I even
had my nerd friend come over and try to fix it- nothing. I finally realized
that the cord that connected the harddrive to the speakers wasn't plugged in
:)

Hmm...on topic.

Okay, speaking of being idiotic, what would happen if Nick accidently forgot
to buy batteries, and his remote died on him. I assume that there might be a

From:    Will Steeves <goid@i.......>
Subject: Announcing The Engagement of Two Long-Time FK Fans

I'd like to announce the upcoming wedding of two longtime friends and FK fans.

This summer, I will marry the lovely and talented and sweet and intelligent
Dr. Lynn Messing, known around FK circles as a Knightie and filk writer.
(Who ever said that you can't put a Cousin and a Knightie together?)

Lynn and I met during the 1996 "Shrewthering festival" in Toronto.  As one
of nine tourists participating in a harrowing three-car tour of FK sites,
Lynn was the unwitting victim of her tour guide's heinous act of
harrassment. (Translation: I swept her up off her feet during the taking of
a picture in front of, you guessed it, the loft).  Although I have on
occasion flirted with tourists and on some rare occasions gotten myself into
hot water for it :-), normally I don't usually "cross the line" between
tourist and tour guide by picking them up (literally or figuratively), so I
can't actually explain what got into me, other than perhaps some strange
urge to test out my recent weightlifting programme.  :-)

Evidently, my "sweep her off her feet" parlour trick must have made a good
impression, because: 1) She didn't slap me; 2) She didn't file charges; 3)
She didn't sue me; and 4) We ended up becaming pen-pals afterwards.

For almost three years, she managed to put up with my slow-as-molasses
e-mail replies (the term "Speed Of Will" evolved at some point during this
time).  For some strange reason that I have yet to understand, she made a
not-so-coy pass at me in a Christmas card, and we decided to "go steady"
around Valentine's Day of 1999.

I proposed to her this most recent Valentine's Day in the hoity-toity Green
Room of the duPont Hotel in Wilmington, Delaware, which drew clapping from
the dinner crowd, an embarrassed bow from yours truly, followed by a great
deal of giggling from the crowd (doh!!!).

The wedding is scheduled for this July, and will likely be a small affair
(so to speak).

Cheers,
W.

Well, I imagine first he'd angst about it. Then Nick would call Natalie.  I'd
hope Nat would just blink at him with a "handle this one yourself" expression.

Then Nick would get back in the Caddy and drive around aimlessly. At some
stop light, he'd turn on the radio to hear, "Tell me, gentle listeners, what
do you do when your batteries run dead? When your life needs to be recharged?
Do you find power in nourishment of the proper sort...."

That's about the time the car behind the Caddy would honk because the light
has turned green.

Hopefully, shortly after, Vachon would land in the back seat whether or not
the Caddy's top was down. The Spaniard would advise Nick that the word on the
street is that Screed has quite a stash of batteries of ALL kind and intends
to take them down to the next all night swap meet.

After Vachon flies off, Nick would tuck into Screed's place, push him around
a little bit for having the Toronto battery market cornered, then finally
feel guilty and hand a wad of bills over to Screed in exchanged for the
batteries.  Screed, of course, would immediately leave for Tunica (because
he's been banned from the Las Vegas city limits after the rat on the
blackjack table incident).

Just before sunrise, Nick would finally get home only to find that all the
batteries Screed just sold him are dead.  He'd then close all the blinds
manually before stretching out on the floor to mope all day with a Tarot card
on his head.

Wot didja 'pect from a Ratpackerish type o' FK fan, eh?

Subject: Coroner's Office Staff

Howdy;

(I'm hoping that nobody has answered this yet, but here goes...)

I noticed someone asking which government body employs the staff of the
Coroner's Office.  I confess that I didn't research this, but the trillium
symbol (symbol of the Province of Ontario) suggests that the office is
provincial as opposed to a muncipal body like the Metropolitan Toronto Police.

Cheers,
Very Perky Cousin Will, who used to guide tours there a lot and still does
so every so often on request, whenever I'm in town.

Subject: Lambert as surname

The French, German, Dutch and surname Lambert is the same in all cases. It's
a patronymic, meaning that the first bearer was the son of a man called
Lambert. The given name _is_ Old German in origin, but it became
internationally popular in the Middle Ages through veneration of St.
Lambert, Bishop of Maastricht. As an English surname Lambert may be from
this, or it can be a form of "lamb herd," the man in charge of the lambs.
