I did join just to check out posts and have full access to rules of the thread.I understand where they are coming from by banning certain subjects politics I get that one and religion is a tough one that starts alot of fighting.I ran across sexual orientation couldnt be discussed I understand where some of this is coming from.I don't think that one should be removed totally have they not forgotten Freddie was a gay man and expressed this not to the public during those times which I understand his reasoning for that.He did tell his friends because they told us all so here.As a child I never understood why that couldnt and shouldnt be discussed.As I got older I began to understand myself and what I was and what this meant to me and how I even differed from most gay females and I knew to keep my mouth shut.I just don't think this is the answer is to remove sexual orientation completely out of this thread.That's just my opinion .I know we all might not agree here on this but noone here has ever been disrespectful to me personally and I have always felt comfortable in discussion this subject.I do think this subject can be tastfullydiscussed along with other intimate subjects.This is something people used to be made to be ashamed of and the time for that has passed.

The QZ trolls frequently use gay slurs. That is probably why.

At first that sounded like a title to a good porno flick. Saint Juib I dont know I have a special personality. They would probably be deleting alot of my texts.Here people just over look the ones they find a little strange.I definately like unique individuals and alot of these folks are gay and some of these subjects may pop up every once in a while .What do you think?Some of these folks are the smartest kindest people accepting people you could ever meet.I fit somewhere on that wheel I just dont know where but they accept me without judgement.I think the thread discusses alot of music I do love that music is my passion.Alot of women like to talk about Freddie's male anatomy others are more interested in who he shared his sheets with.I'm interested in the music he made with Queen and the friendships he formed that reporters said he never had.He was supposed to be a fun guy.His music and the man off stage are very interesting to me the rest can be buried as far as I'm concerned.So yes I can see in a way why they don't want these subjects approached or discussed.What a pity but at least the music is still with us.

We are missing a few people here! I hope you all had a good week.

Same ole same ole here. Saw a video on FB for creating a mask with a sock. Since I only have one mask, I thought I'd give it a try. I should know better. I don't like crafts and while this was hardly a craft, it did require following directions and some dexterity with scissors. After ruining three perfectly good socks I finally got one made. I will NEVER wear it outside. It makes me look like some kind of deviant. My DIL is getting me some more masks. LOL, I did post a rant on FB about the sock fiasco though and many of my friends took pity and gave me the names of people who were making masks locally. One offered to drop some by here, others just laughed because they know how I am with following directions. I'm much calmer today.

I checked out the weekly podcast about Freddie. This week they posted the new version of WATC. It took me a fairly long time to come around to AL, but I do like this version. Enjoying Rudi's YouTube channel, but I have to admit I don't have any interest in Whitney Houston. I know he's proud of all of his work, and he should be, but I just want to see Freddie.

Hope some people show up this weekend just to check in.

I'm not sure I have much of a dog in this fight. I'm familiar with the other site as it's what I originally came across roughly a year ago when this Queen curiosity developed. It was interesting reading, lots of knowledgeable people, significantly less trolling than is on QZ, but I never joined. It also disappeared for awhile, I think. It's great they they boot the trolls, so the conversations aren't polluted. But this nice group works for me, for now.

Like you, Katy, I'm not crafty. I know how to sew and have a machine, but ugh, just hate it. A neighbor is making bunches of masks and gave my hub and I each one, and a friend of my SIL made three really great masks (with pockets for HEPA filters, if desired) so those are what we're using when we're out in public spaces. I did try the bandana business, but my glasses fog up so much and I just don't wear my contacts anymore, so that was a pain. I want to spend as little time in Whole Foods as possible and that's hard to do when I can't see!

Katy, my SIL made a no-sew mask using a t-shirt and she's likes it, says it's really comfortable. I still haven't looked at the video, but have it bookmarked. I think masks in public are a thing for the foreseeable future.

Here's the link, if interested:

As for Freddie or Queen, I got nuthin'.

TUHI, thanks for the video of the docs singing a song virtually. It was beautiful. I've seen several songs done that way and it's impressive.

The link for the no-sew video was helpful because now I can see what is wrong with the one I tried to make from a tee shirt. I do have a sewing machine, but I hate it too, and the machine is buried in the basement. I'm pretty sure I know where it is under the cobwebs. So anyway, I'm going to try to re-do my no-sew tee tomorrow using ideas from your video. I'd give anything to have that rotary cutting tool she has though. She's clearly a serious sewer. The other issue, and I'm glad you mentioned it because I thought it was just me, is the foggy glasses. It's ridiculous. I'm still getting my groceries delivered from Amazon Prime and BTW, they get the groceries at Whole Foods. I've never shopped there but I'm impressed with some of the things I've gotten. I'm really pleased with the produce.

Here's a link for making a sock mask..It's so easy you'll have to wonder how I could possibly have ruined three socks before I got it right.

Katydyd...I have looked at the new Queen Forum, but haven't signed up yet. I'm sure I will at some point. It is very well done...the discussions are interesting and I like that the administrators have the ability to ban trolls. I will continue to post here though because I enjoy the familiarity of this nice little group!

Lsgp03....You mentioned some concerts you will be missing this summer. My husband and I had tickets to see Brit Floyd in March which was cancelled. I was considering seeing "Gary Mullins and the Works", a Queen tribute band, but that show was also cancelled My husband and I have plans to attend the Newport, RI Kite Festival in early July, but I doubt we will go. It's too bad the Freddie birthday party was cancelled, but I understand why the organizers had to make that decision.

MHZ...This seems like a good year to go to Breakthru...nice array of guests. I wonder when a decision will be made regarding whether it will be cancelled or not? Have you ever been before?

Steven...I have to admit that sci-fi is not a genre I've ever been drawn to. Fritz Lang's "Metropolis" was on TV the other day. As you know, scenes from that film were used in the Radio Ga Ga video. I watched the movie for about a minute and then turned the channel...maybe another time. I recall reading somewhere that Freddie enjoyed the movie "Imitation of Life" with Lana Turner. Very touching film. He was also a fan of "The Women" which I have never seen. I prefer drama over comedy.

Chevy...Have never tried buffalo meat before. My husband had a buffalo burger when we were in Wall, South Dakota which he thought was pretty good. He likes venison, another lean and healthy meat. We have a lot in our freezer.

Jo T....I am the one who likes Eddie Vedder. I discovered him while listening to the CD of "Into the Wild". Never read the book though. Hope you can do your dream "Canada to Fairbanks" RV trip someday. I love road trips. Driving through Ireland for 2 weeks was one of the best experiences of my life.

I love that Brian, Roger, and Adam recorded "We are the Champions" to raise money for the WHO health care workers fund. Great cause and the video was lovely.

Lsgp and Katydyd...Had to chuckle when I read your comments about your glasses fogging up with your face masks on. I had the same experience...darned glasses! Then my husband told me to pinch the wire part of the mask over my nose (we have those medical looking pale blue masks). That pretty much solved the problem.

Rainbow, Its to die for it's not wild tasting and good for you.I dont like a fat meat at all.I like lean meat like ground Turkey I even like Turkey bacon with avocados and tomatoes I'm making myself hungry.If I see a advertisement of a steak with nasty greasy fatty juice from it dripping off that makes me sick.How can someone eat that.I especially hate my meat red on the inside I had to eat it that way as a child.Grandparents always cooked their meat rare disgusting.I used to work in a steak house as a teenager and this guy ordered a steak to be cooked like 15 seconds on one side and the same on the other i took the order back and it was fixed that way and he ate it.Management wasn't happy you cant serve meat that way it's still cold .I will never forget that.Have a nice weekend folks.Off to treatment next week guess I will take my sketch board and draw or my adult coloring book for pass time.

Hi all! I've had a busy few days enjoying the warmer temps and sunshine, it sure raises the spirits! My granddaughters came over today and swam all afternoon in the small pond we have on our property. I figured that was a good way to keep any viruses at bay. They really had fun, and it was good exercise...although I can't believe they could withstand the water temps. I am much too wimpy to even stick a toe in!

Rainbow, do you know where I could go to see what is scheduled for Breakthru and how to sign up? I've never seen anything on sites I frequent. I really hope they don't cancel. Our governor announced yesterday that we are starting to open things up slowly in most areas, except the cities where there are the most cases. Out here in the boonies we have far fewer cases.

Katydid, how funny on your mask experience! I looked up instructions the other day, I figured I could hand sew a couple since I don't have a machine. But after looking at the instructions I bagged it, I had a feeling they would turn out strangely and then I wouldn't wear them. I have a hard enough time putting one on, I always feel weird in them even if everyone else has them on. Like I am buying into some kind of conspiracy....or I am part of a sci fi movie! It's just my brain working overtime, I think.

I have eaten Bison before, and I like it. My husband enjoys it a lot, he is not supposed to eat red meat any more due to his cholesterol levels but once in a great while he will have a bison burger when he is really craving red meat.

I have looked at the new Queen chat site, it seems all right and definitely no arguing. TUHI, I think you are referring to the Queenonline message board, it was offline for a long time around Christmas and into the new year. That is a nice site too, it doesn't quite get the traffic that the new Queen chat site seems to be getting, though. As far as moving over to Queen Chat, I have mixed feelings. I think this site will be around for a while, it's been on here for years and years, and if it stayed on through bots and endless trolls I would think it will keep on going with just a little traffic like us. One thing I don't like is that the creator of Queen chat keeps coming back to this board and continuing arguments and insults with trolls....they supposedly created the new site to get away from all that, yet they come here and keep up the insults. So I kind of hate to feed that other board when they continue to lurk and be rude on this one. That being said, it's not like I feel super strongly on it, if everyone wanted to move I would be fine with it.

One funny little thing to add...I made it onto Brian May's Instagram feed last weekend! He had an online launch party for the King's Daughters, they were all there and having a good time. Brian asked everyone to post a picture of themselves in a party hat and hashtag it...so I did. He ended up scrolling through the pictures on one of his IG posts, and my picture was one that came up. He also read off one of my questions and had the girls answer it. So I was all hyped up....I had a distant connection with Brian, woo hoo! ; )




Love is still the answer, take my hand...

MHZ....Here is the link to the Breakthru Convention:

Chevy....You are not fond of Canadians? ALL the people from Canada? WOW!!!!!

TUHI and Katydyd...I am not crafty either. The last time I used a sewing machine was in a Home Economics class around 1976 when I made a shirt (Which I was very proud of and actually used to wear) I did watch the video of making the face mask from the sock. That was clever.
