I wanna try something quotes they are a wonderful way to express a feeling your having or just plain fun sometimes.Keep in mind they are your inner thoughts sometimes and the meanings need no explanation.Mine for today was taught to me by my grandmother beware of false prophets and liars.I didnt realise what it meant at the time but very true.

Steven...I hear you on the fear of losing liberties and having that become more acceptable or a way of life. It's a fear here for some, as well. I have to admit, as an independent person I don't like anyone telling me what I can and can't do!

Chevy, I think it's fine to put a little bit of bleach in the bird water, like maybe a capful to a large bird bath. Birds will drink out of swimming pools and be fine, and cities add chlorine to the water systems to cleanse it too, so we are usually drinking it ourselves. Funny...when you mentioned a witch doctor the other day it reminded me of the Bewitched show...when Samantha used to call Dr. Bombay. I loved that show! And when I first started hearing Freddie speak years ago I always thought his accent reminded my of Dr. Bombay....especially the way he said "oh dear". Weird, the things that come to the mind randomly!

Katydid, how cool is it that you got the puzzle! Oddly enough, as I was looking at something the other day an ad came up for Zazzle, and that you can custom order puzzles through them. So I guess if you have any future puzzle picture needs, you know you can go through them! I watched Rudi yesterday and his show was done so much better. I will say though, I felt like we got a little less information, since now he is able to show videos more easily he defaults to that. Sometimes when he was rambling he spilled good info! I subscribed to his YouTube channel and saw an interview with Roger Taylor for an online concert that Roger did a few years back. I'm listening to it now, and it is really good! I think I will have to invest in some of Roger's albums, I like his voice and his lyrics are always so good...very deep and ironic. Rudi directed the concert and I think he did a great job on it.

Mhz, Thanks I was so worried about those birds I just knew she was gonna kill them.Maybe she is doing it to keep the baths clean.I feel so much better.Im with you on my rights I like all mine too.Here in the US we got that dumb president that lacks human intelligence and is a insult to women.The whole time I'm looking at him all I see is his makeup I got no problem with a dude in a little makeup but around his eyes are extremely light and the rest of his face is red.Its foundation and the wrong color.I just can't take him seriously.Well that's enough of that hope you are well and finding something to keep you busy.Tape yourself singing bohemian Rhapsody we want to hear you I bet you are a hoot.

I pay attention to detail I have since I was very young.Nothing gets past me.I was looking at pics of Freddie and his female friend companions and how did this get past me.Oh those companions were drum roll please Mary and Barbara in those pictures of course being the little charmer he must of been was kissing them.But there was a huge problem tight lips in all pics no tongue.Did noone ever notice this.Thats how you might kiss a friend or maybe your mom , sister, I just thought if you guys had time you could look back at some of his picks with these two ladies.It's definately not how a guy would lay one on a female he is with.I'm sure some of these photos were taken without prior arrangement or unexpected.

However, I hope they still keep larger states closed and flights to these larger states closed or we will see a second wave of this and might not recover.Or at least keep it detained by not allowing flights in or out that would be awesome!I'm so thankful I come from a small state like Oklahoma , surrounding states Arkansas, kansas,they seemed to not get hit as hard thank goodness.

You don´t need to wait anxiously for a vaccine. An effective drug treatment would be a game-changer, too. Right now a lot of studies and test trials are being undertaken with some promising results (with Remdesivir, for example).

Probably inevitable, but I just saw on FB that the Freddie birthday celebration in Montreux has been canceled. I think it's the right decision, but so sad.

Hope you are all well.

I saw that Katydid, it seems kind of early to cancel but I guess people have to make plans so they needed to decide. I was considering going to the Breakthrough thing in Cleveland, I haven’t heard anything on that yet.

I am hopeful our state will be opening Monday, we’re supposed to get an announcement tomorrow. We only have 30 cases and one death in my county, we have maybe 70,000 people here.

MHZ. I think they canceled so early because so many will need refunds on plane and hotel reservations. I actually look for Breakthrough to be canceled too but maybe I'm just pessimistic. Normally I'm optimistic about everything, but I'm still adjusting to the changes.

We will have a partial opening tomorrow, with more opening on May 12. I'm going to stay in til then, but I do hope to venture out on the 12th for the hanging baskets for my deck. We have horrible numbers of deaths and infection here, but the curve is leveling. I'm getting at least one more grocery order from Amazon Fresh, but after the 12th I may venture out to my grocery store. I'd be there when it opens and shop quickly in and out.

Hi all,

I've been debating about whether to bring this up, but I suspect most of you know anyway, so here goes.

Most of the regular posters on QZ have migrated to a new site.

http://queenchat.boards.net/

I've been lurking there for a week or so, maybe longer and I think it's well done. It has some nice advantages over QZ. Probably the biggest selling point is that there are several administrators and they have the ability to permanently ban trolls. Some of the people who plagued Thor's threads over the years have already been banned. As I understand it, they use IP identification, so a troll can't simply change a name and come back in. Once banned, they are gone. I'm not technical at all but I think that's how it works. I've noticed that pictures can actually be shared in the body of posts and that's nice. I believe there is a quote feature in the post box that would be much easier to use than the invisible buttons on the current QZ site. I didn't see an edit button which is something I use frequently, but because I'm not a member it is possible that I can't see everything available to members. The posts there are interesting and informative, but to be very honest, even if I joined, I don't think I'd post much.

You may have noticed over the last week or so that they are very few new posts on QZ and it is diminishing daily. Some of the posts that are there are either trolls or bots. I don't think this means QZ is dead, but I think it is struggling. Personally I think it would be very possible to be active in both groups.

My biggest concern is that this QZ will shut down at some point due to inactivity. Unfortunately there is no Personal Forum on this new site, so there would be no home for us. They do have a book board, but it is not used in the same way we used ours. We had some lively discussions and I would miss that! That might change there with new books coming out but only time will tell.. Thor's threads, the book thread and now this one have always been unique to QZ. We have developed friendships over the years that are special to this medium because we do share more of ourselves beyond our interest in everything Queen. I'm not sure that would be as accepted at the new site.

I almost wish one of the people who post here and also on Queenchat would come in and share some thoughts. Better yet, maybe an administrator could stop by and share thoughts!

I'm bringing this up in case QZ does shut down. I hope that is not the case, but I wanted to be able to find you all again in another place if necessary. Have any of you joined them already?

Thoughts??

http://queenchat.boards.net/ has an other discussion section that perhaps could be used.

This new board seems to have a core of ethics that requires everyone to be a decent human being and be respectful of other's opinions.

As far as I can see, the only other forum rule is:

"¦ political, race, sexual orientation or religious posts/threads are not allowed and will be deleted."

Saint Jiub, thanks for the info. I knew you were posting there and hoped you might fill us in a bit. Where do you see us fitting in though? General discussion? When I started this thread I avoided that because I knew we were going to be way too personal and I didn't want it to annoy people.. I'm not sure they want that type of thing there. Here on QZ the Personal Forum is so buried that many people may not even bother to look at it.

From what I've seen the posts there tend to be fairly serious. I think I would be kinda intimidated.

This Friendly Chat thread is not buried in QZ, but rather prominantly at the top of the Personal section. Whoever wants to participate does so freely, and it is not bothering anyone else on QZ.

My gut tells me that it would be "safe" to post in the "Hobbies & Interests" or "Other Discussion" sub-boards in the "Non-Music" section of the forum .

The Queen General Discussion section on the new board might NOT be OK for general discussion that is not always about Queen. SweetCaroline trolled in the "Queen General Section" with mutliple Adam solo links (not Queen related) and immediately got banned.

Saint Jiub, I know we are at the top of the Personal section, and in fact, are currently the only really active board on QZ. What I meant was that at least some of the people currently posting here weren't even aware of the Personal Forum because it is at the bottom of the list of forums, yet it seemed the right place for us to land. It really isn't important either way. It has worked for us.

Since I'm not a member of the new site I might not be able to see every thread members can see. I just looked again and don't see the Non-Music section.That tells me I might have to re-evaluate my decision to wait a while to join because maybe as a guest I can't see all that is available. I really appreciate the information you are sharing. Thanks so much for your insight!

Katydyd - It is easy to register as a new user on the new site. There are over 500 members now, and the site keeps on getting busier and busier.

In my mind, you have nothing to lose by joining now and just being a lurker for now if you so choose.

OK, done, you convinced me. But geez, now my name appears as "newest member". I so want to be a ghost!!

Friends, I do not intend to jump ship. I'll be here as long as we can be. But SJ is right, there are boards we could use if need be.
