Subject: An important note

Hi everyone,
   I know that it has been ok in the past to talk
about my company because we're non-profit and almost
exclusively deal in FK dramas and parodies on CD and
cassette. I hope it's ok and it won't happen again if
it is.
   My site (www.dragonroar.com) is down - as well as
my server company (WebSolid.net). Both have been down
for over a week. I just wanted to let all of you who
pre-ordered "Vengeance is Mine - by Vickie Holt"
know.(sorry about the long unavoidable wait) Do not
worry we are still here and not going anywhere. My
e-mail address will always be valid (one reason why I
use a Yahoo address!). I'm looking into the problem.
    The LaCroix's Poetry site is still up and doing
well, lots of new members joining!

Good memory, Jeannie.  That was the 4everknightfanatics list, back in 2000.
I'm not sure it's a good idea to admit this here, but I was the perpetrator
of that bit of nonsense (and yes, it was a challenge).  The story is called
"LaCroix Pays Up," and anyone who is curious can find it on my website at
http://knightwind1228.tripod.com .

Yesterday while grocery shopping I saw a Duncan Hines "Red Velvet"
cake mix so I thought it would be funny and bought it.  Well I made
it tonight and it looks like something that would be served in the
It is a chocolate cake (the batter was delicious), but the color is a
deep red. (definitely NOT fire engine red)  It is kind of cool
looking.  Now I just have to wait for it to cool and then ice it.  It
would be a perfect cake for a FK gathering. :)

Judging from what is on the dvd for season 2 highlander (they have little
scenes that were 'just relocated' stuck in on a few of the episodes) they
were doing the sword fights in small snippets... just a guess.

Speaking of GWD and AP,I think it's interesting, at
least to me anyway, to compare this show with the next
time they shared the screen, which was Tracker. But I
actually found this one the much more complex and
fascinating character of the two...not that I don't
like Zin, but I think he plays the combination
good/bad guy really well and I also think it takes
talent to be able to play what basically amounts to
two different characters at once like that. I know
they had lots of breaks and stuff like that, but I
still bet that there were some times he had to go
between the two quickly. (I think, anyway.)

Mel, who likes to think of the Quentin Barnes
personality as possibly something like what Dark Nick
would be like. An evil killer with no conscience and
no remorse. And you gotta love that creepy, deep SoB
"Posessed-Nick" voice he was doing, too.But that's
just IMHO

Subject: For the fanfic writers

I came across a reference to this in an article I was reading, and
thought folks might be interested. What would happen if Nick ever went
to a psychiatrist?

"Dr. Jules Cotard (1840-1889) was a Parisian neurologist who first
described the "delire des negations." Cotard's syndrome or Cotard's
delusion comprises any one of a series of delusions ranging from the
fixed and unshakable belief that one has lost organs, blood, or body
parts, to believing that one has lost one's soul or is dead. In its most
profound form, the delusion takes the form of a professed belief that
one does not exist."

Your very humble & most obedient servant,

Gateway formatted my harddrive when i took it in to be worked on--i saved my
computer files b/c i thought they might do this; however, i didn't save the
e-mails in my filing cabinet on aol --oops!!  So, will the person who
volunteered to beta read my story that was mentioned on list about Nick and his
sons, please reply to this e-mail privately.

Ah, yes.. what a fantasy lineup!

Alou in left, Knight in center, and Sosa in right.
With the vampiric ability to fly (but making it appear
to be just a really good jump) Nick could snag down
lots of hits that otherwise would just make homerun.

And, of course, the enhanced vampire hand-eye
coordination could make for a great batting average.
He'd have to purposefully miss the ball.

To be technical, though, Nick would have had a hard
time seeing any baseball games when in Chicago, unless
he caught them after the 7th inning or so in spring
and fall, or just watched them on TV.  The sun would
still be up, although low in the sky, for the greater
portion of most night games.  Getting there (with
vampire quickness) once the sun was down wouldn't be a
problem, but there wouldn't be much of the game left.
Besides, 1966 wasn't the best year to be a Cubs fan,
even though the lineup includes Cub notables Ernie
Banks, Billy Williams, Ron Santo, Don Kessinger, Randy
Hundley, and Glenn Beckert.  The team finished 10th
for the season, a pretty poor showing for such talent.

The lights went on in Wrigley Field on August 8, 1988.
 (8/8/88)  I know because my husband has a framed
photo of the event hanging in the hallway.  :-)  Maybe
Nick flew in from wherever he was in 88 to be there.

OK, I'll stop being the Cubs baseball geek.


This is a test of the emergency signature system. Were this an actual
signature, you would see amusing mottos, disclaimers, a zillion net
addresses, or edifying philisophical statements. This is only a test.
