    I remember having a third grade student with ADHD. We didn't have fidget spinners at that time. He had a small, smooth rock that he would hold in one hand and "fidget" with it. It did help him to focus. At the end of the year he gave me the rock. I collect heart rocks and keep them in a ceramic bowl. But, there among the heart rocks is a small, smooth rock.

    Yep!! Here I am back again after a few years away!! Always loved this board and happy to be back. Couldn't get in last time--no longer had the right link. So, thanks for posting it, ldyjocelyn. You mentioned The Handmaiden's Tale. Have never read it and think I will try it. Another book I want to read that was mentioned again on BOLD today is Hillbilly Elegy. Wonder if anyone here has read it? Will miss our other board and hope to see some familiar faces here. I am one who is enjoying Clay on BOLD and even though I miss his singing, I hope he succeeds with this new career path. He's just so darned good at it. I find I love hearing him on BOLD and other shows.

    Well I just got home from the March on Austin. What a day! It was amazing. It was fascinating that there were all ages, genders, orientation and ethnicity. Everyone just bonded together in a common cause. There were so many people it took us an hour and a half to just get out of the park and begin to march. People were on roofs of buildings waving signs, people giving out free hugs and a baptist church, not even on the parade route was giving out water!I am so glad I went because it was such an empowering moment. I got to hear Wendy Davis speak.....very inspiring. I'm also sunburned and exhausted. It was 78 degrees with no shade or breeze but so worth it. Before Clay ran for office I had no interest in politics but now I'm marching in parades. Thanks Clay!

    Thanks to Google, I have fixed the "Like" problem! You may now like up to 25 posts per day. Sadly, as if we have 25 posts per day...c'mon Clay, give us something to talk about...

    ldyjocelyn - sounds like you had a great time at the concert. Hope you enjoy your week off! I have to agree with soulsista4clay - even though I don't post much, this seems to be my home board since CAT closed down. I've been at CV since it started (my membership number is 2!) and CB since 2003, but the bigger boards don't really work for me at this point in time. If all Clay breaks loose, then all bets are off! But for now, FCA is a good place to be.

    I remembered my password. I used to read here all the time. I'll try to post more often. It looks like I need to change my picture...that picture of Clay is probably 8 or nine years old.

    Sleeping in the afternoon, in the Park Hyatt hotel, the door is open , no bugs, it's raining a gentle rain and no humidity in Colorado! That's wonderful but you know what makes it better? It's free! We are on our free trip to CO, that my daughter won. It feels so good and is really what I needed!

    Just popping in to say thank you for all the good thoughts. It helped a lot knowing people cared. He is no longer suffering or unable to live a normal life and that's what I am choosing to focus on. I am telling everyone that the saying "Life is short eat dessert first" should be heeded by all! So many things got put off for later, because life got in the way, and unfortunately for him there was no later!

    So, Friday I took the afternoon off to shop for my mom's birthday present, and cut the grass. I started some light cleaning and then Saturday got into the heavy stuff. Also went to the market and grocery store for all ingredients needed for what cindilu2 coined our "Thanks Birthday Going Away" party. My daughter arrived Saturday with a steam cleaner, and we proceeded to do the couches that the dogs have destroyed (what a chore!) and the carpets upstairs. Then I made a broccoli casserole, pumpkin pies and two batches of cupcakes. By the end of all of this, I wasn't even thinking straight, I was so tired, so no wonder the cupcakes didn't exactly turn out the way they should have. Sunday was more cleaning (yeah, it was dirty!), preparing veggies, icing cupcakes, and of course the turkey, which was stuffed and in in the oven by 6:10 a.m. There were 10 of us in all at two tables, and we ate on schedule at 1 p.m. Craziness! But we celebrated my mom's 78th, my ex's 50th, my daughter's impending trip to England, and of course, an early Canadian Thanksgiving! It was a great day, it all went off as planned, and I think everyone who was being honoured really enjoyed themselves. I went to bed for a nap yesterday about 4 p.m. and was in bed for the night by 9:30 p.m. I plan to lay low this week and eat left overs.

    Well we get another day off work! The overpasses are really iced over and they are dangerous to drive. I’ll suffer and binge watch something.

    I’m baaack! Did ya miss me? I had a really restful cruise. We staked out a spot where no one ever went and read to our hearts content. Just watching the ocean go by is so peaceful. I forgot it was thanksgiving. No cooking, no dishes and someone to clean up after me.

    Hey everyone I started a new job this week at a thrift store after being laid off at Walgreens this summer for having to cut hours. I think I'm going to love it. I'm getting use to s bit of a new schedule. Boldtv this this morning was excellent! Love Clays latest tweet!Loved the hashtag. So I've been taking my time re reading LTS anther fan gave me the idea. I did re read it at the beginning of 2014. It's almost been 15th years since this whole journey started so much as happened. Reading LTS you can just tell how much Clay has grown and as become comfortable with himself. Reading LTS does make me want anther book by Clay. Hope everyone has a great weekend!

    I didn't get to see anything of the eclipse! Everyone in the office just left and I can't leave the phones. This is nothing new. It that's a whole different story. So I looked at this eclipse today....it was my cat whose name was eclipse.

    I was on the tour with a Russian guide who was making fun of trump and there were a lot of trump lovers who weren't happy! So I just kept my mouth shut and looked at the pretty scenery. Oh and the guide wasn't too bad to look at either.

    Cute pics from Bold. Clay sure enjoys seeing B-way shows - wish they'd invite him to be IN them!!!! I agree about AI manufacturing drama. At the time, no one knew how manufactured it all was, so it seemed new and interesting. The bad auditions and Simon's cutting comments were so different that they drew people in to see the real talent. And those talented people weren't on their second or third chances in the music business - they were real unknowns. That didn't last long on AI - it became about professionals with lots of orchestration and sets and lighting plus increasingly famous judges who were on there to plug their own tours and projects. The contestants weren't important anymore, and no one cared who won - very much like The Voice now.

    Aww, what a nice pic! The guy has so much going for him. When things come up in the news he has so many of the right credentials to be called upon. Trump-check, idol-check, politics-check, gay-check, entertainment-check, intellligent-check, articulate-check and finally the camera loves him-check!

    Twilight - sounds like your puppy may have gotten a little dehydrated - glad he got some water and food down. I see so many familiar names here, so it doesn't feel like a strange place at all. Thanks again for the welcome!

    Love that picture of Clay with that family ^^^ Also, your banner rocks!! So glad to be welcomed here. I very much dislike the fact that Clay's fan boards are fast becoming fewer and fewer. I'm very happy that this one is still here. I'm pretty sure I joined here a long time ago, but now I'm a new member again. I'll try to post when/if I ever have anything interesting to say. *Waves to everyone*

    Just a heads-up to anyone that drops by and is shocked at the colors--I mean more than usual - haha. Ldyj has made a gorgeous new banner and it isn't going to match anything that's already here. For the next couple of hours you may see some strange combinations as I work my way through the changes. Don't worry; it's temporary!

    LadyJ have a wonderful trip. I just can't take all of these mass murders. We mourn for a week and then we wait 2 weeks for the next thing to happen and ultimately nothing is ever done. This latest thing hurt my heart but I had to just check out. Just too painful. So I've turned back to music to help me get through ithe days. And Clay is a big part of that. He seems to be the go to person on a lot of different topics. He's a smart guy. Always thought Clay could have his own show that dealt with social and political issues. But I like that he is busy across so many types of media. Good for him. He's found his calling.

    You know apart from little insurance thing that can be solved even if I have to pay, since Sunday I had a leak in a new toilet and accidentally left the freezer door open and almost lost all the food. And to top that off I had to get a new battery in my car. So today I'd had enough and I consoled myself with a new tv. Did I need one.....no. Did I want one .....yes! So I bought a 65" smart 4K tv. I can't wait to see Clay on it. Do I feel better.....maybe!

    I'm trying my best to be that person who ventures out. However -- let's just put it this way -- thank goodness for FaceTime and Skype, as I've had to use that technology to vent in the past few weeks. That emoticon is soooooooo the way I've felt. BWAHAHAHAHAHA! And also to jamar's post too! Negativity breeds negativity. What a concept. I very much agree with that, and your entire post. If he "leaves" (and I put that in quotes, more on that in a minute), I've gained so much from being a fan of his. I've learned about technology (how to navigate message boards, make DVD's, download clips, etc.). I've learned about Inclusion and situations far away in the world that UNICEF covers. I've made friends from across the world that I hope I will stay in touch. I can't be sad about any of that. (Oh, and the clack! Can't forget about the wealth of clack we have!) You did like it, or at least it showed up for me... jmh is a wise woman. I'm not sure what the future holds for Clay, and honestly, it's not for me to decide -- it's up to Clay. I think as much as the uncertainty is killing some...well, life is like that. None of us know what the next day will bring for us, even if we keep our calendars up to date! Things can change in a blink of an eye. Therefore, I cannot worry about what's going to happen, I just put my faith in a higher power (in my case, God). If I didn't, I'd go bat-shit crazy! I too believe he'll never give up singing. Having said that, it might not be for US all the time. It may be for private, fundraising concerts. Nothing can stop the voice, but also...nothing can stop the man. If nothing else, I believe he'll continue holding the Gala every year, and he'll sing at that. For those who aren't happy about that -- I full believe in facing your fears. (I remember a long time ago how many fans said they had never gone on a plane, and never stayed in a hotel by themselves...until the AI tour in 2003.) Travel can be done. Money can be saved. (I'm working on that one myself right now...) And finally...the choice is yours. I will not begrudge anyone who chooses not to see Clay; I also will not begrudge those who spent the money to get the piano and concert. Live your life as you see fit. Clay -- you too. Live your life as you see fit.

    Are they cutting it back down to 3? I would definitely start watching again if Clay was on.... dunno if I'd listen to much else of it though. LOL So I have some news!! I know I've been more of a lurker lately but I just haven't had much to add to the conversation and I've been had plans just about every weekend for a few months. But I digress...the good news! I officially have enrolled back in college! I turned in my admission form on Monday to a local community college and I'm just waiting for my welcome letter. Once I get that I can go through all the rest of it, getting my student ID and registering for the class I want to take. And no, that's not a typo.... I want to start slow and just see how I do with this one class before I start piling stuff on myself and getting overwhelmed. I'm going to take Marketing 1010 which is the first and most basic marketing class. Eventually maybe I'd like to go back to taking French as well, the first 2nd language I learned which I still absolutely love but it's so rusty since I haven't used it in years. I'm SO looking forward to this fresh start and a new chapter in my life. I really hope this little step turns into something bigger.
