    As my daughter put it I will be glamping! I have rented a small apartment but I’m not taking any furniture. Blow up bed, fold up table and a bean bag chair. Last time I did this I rented furniture but it seems a waste of $500 a month. However I already have the WiFi sorted and I’m taking a tv and my fire stick so I’m fine. I’m taking kitchen stuff and that’s it. My main computer died this week so it’s going into storage and I’ll figure it out later. My daughter lives about 100 yards away so if I need anything I can get it. ‘For Xmas I received a gift certificate to put pics on a thumb drive so I’m going to get those ready while I’m in the apt. As it’s just me I think it will be fun.

    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...

    Interesting weekend for me so far. Received an email last night — I’ve won a M&G, along with two tickets to a show, and signed merchandise for the vocal group Straight No Chaser! It was some silly “follow us on Spotify” contest, and lo and behold I won! Therefore, I’ll be going to St. Louis in December along with my husband. I’ve seen them a few times before, and they are GREAT, but this will be my first M&G with them, other than a brief autograph line. And then today — I upgraded my iPad! I also have a new keyboard case. My old iPad was 5 years old, and actually, it sitll worked pretty well. But, it’s nice to have a speedy iPad, and an easier way to type on it!

    Greetings and salutations! (waves madly at the FCA, wonders if I still have mod privileges and manfully resists the urge to jiggle everything) Since I am currently listening to Solo's recording of Kyrie in Dallas, my fingers automatically went to post on the board. Hey to all my old friends (and to those who don't know who the hell the eHP is, nothing can be proven and we have never been convicted!) I am so not a nostalgic person, but last night took me back (although I admit, for a second I was wonder why Anderson Cooper was singing to me). It was crazy fun. Clay was playing to the hard core target audience...purply-blue shirt with the gray inner button placket and gray slacks (but no tie). And they didn't fit the way they did back in the day, but hell, neither are the fans. We even got a shirt tug. We got a little of Don't Save it All for Christmas Day. I was happy and what else matters!

    It is hard to believe it’s been 15 years, time sure does fly by. I was 14 when Clay was on Idol. I didn’t have internet then honestly I wasn’t worried I would never see Clay after the show was over since I saw what happened with Kelly and Justin I was mad he didn’t win for while especially with living in the Raleigh area. All I remember about that summer is it took me a week to get the TITN / BOTW single in my hands , I couldn’t wait to go to the Idol tour my very first concert. I somehow was in the 12th row with a couple other friends I’ll never forget how loud the screaming was for Clay. These past 15 years have been filled with ups and downs, music ,joy memories and friendships!

    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.

    It really was a great show. So typically Clay and he definitely appeared to be large and in charge. I don’t do stage door any more. I have enough signatures and photos that I think it’s only fair to let someone who has never met him get the chance! ‘I overheard some not-fans saying they loved the show. One guy said you know I hate xmassy stuff but this was good. I have to be honest that it’s perfect for the time of the year because you can get away with so much more. The same type of show, just variety, would probably never make it any more. Clay just looked so happy upon the stage. Ruben was, how shall we say, a little more restrained. Oh heck a lot more restrained. ‘I do wish I could see it again but when you’ve planned a Panama Canal cruise for next week there’s no way. If they do it again next year I will so be there. In fact maybe I’ll plan my next years Christmas around that. Hmm! Christmas in New York is always good.

    Happy Thanksgiving Canada! Hope it was great for all of you! We're at the time when we need a new thread -- finally! It takes us a while anymore.... Anyway, I'm proposing this new thread title, based on something our long lost KAndre posted earlier: We're happy with Clay, and what else matters. Original quote: "I was happy, and what else matters." Thoughts?

    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!

    This weekend been so much fun! The honories were wonderful and inspiring as always. When the photographer whom the first founders a ward and when Clay and Diana where going ready to announce the second winner I had a feeling it was going to be Jerome. I don't think there was a dry eye in the place. Then I totally freaked out when Clay started singing You will be found he sang a little bit then went into the send a kid to camp aution and then finished the song once the aution was over Clay sounded so good! No More Sad Songs was a great blast from the past after Clay sang No More Sad songs is when he brought up the idea of re creating IT set list next year . I loved Ashes and finally getting to hear Falling live was so awesome! To me it felt like Clay joked a lot last night like when it was announced confounder Clay Aiken to Clay to come and speak for the first time after the program begin we were clapping when Clay was like half way to the podium it quieted down Clay was like "you don't care anymore no one cares anymore" joking like. Can't remember the title but Clay ended the night with a beautiful thank you as always Clay sat in a chair in the middle of the stage there was a spotlight on him and Ben. He didn't sing as much as last year it was a wonderful night and weekend! Its feels different in a since Nicks been director more casual and fun.

    I'm back, but there's nothing to report Clay wise. Sigh.... The wedding in Minnesota was lovely! It was at a farm near a lake, the day was gorgeous. Sadly, though -- I've got the bug bites to prove I was in Minnesota. The wedding almost didn't happen though -- for the groom's mother lives in St. John, and they hadn't heard from her the entire week. Thankfully, they got a short satellite call Saturday morning, saying she was safe and that the wedding should go on as planned! My prayers are with everyone affected by Irma, both in the US and the Virgin Islands, not to mention Cuba. (BTW, the wedding couple didn't sign any official papers on Saturday...they will renew their vows when his Mom can make it to the states and then will sign everything then!)

    That's him. I'm not an experienced capper but just happened to stop the video at the right moment. There's a bit before this when I think he's facing forward.

    The main "complaint" about the Facebook app is that it is a memory hog! It also doesn't sort by most recent posts first, but most popular. That's an annoyance, but it really works well for Facebook Live, and that's how I watch Bold Blend regularly. There's an app for almost EVERYTHING!

    My daughter came over with my favourite Mexican food and a Bluetooth speaker for my amazon echo. She showed me how to call her through the echo. So now I can contact her from the echo, cell phone, home phone, FaceTime, skype, twitter, messenger and an Apple Watch and what's the bet she doesn't answer? Hee hee.

    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*

    Hi guys. Read here everyday but do not post much. Was sad to see CAT close. I also read there but life has been busy and have not posted a lot. I enjoyed our weekly chats and we had a lot of us on it. This was my first board I joined and so happy it has survived all these years. I refused to give up on Clay. He has given me so much joy and I have met so many awesome people. I am so hoping that someday he will sing to us again.
