Section 2, part 2

(1) Kathy R. in NC: I don’t know if this is going to be helpful or not.  If you want to edit or cancel something you have posted as a status or left as a comment on another’s post move the arrow (cursor or whatever you call it) and hover over the far right part of the field across from your name.  You should see a pencil show up.  Click on the pencil and it will give you two options, edit or cancel.  Choose the appropriate one and correct spelling etc., or remove your comment.

You may already know about being able to hide or remove things too.  Same basic process just hover in the same place for the particular post you don’t want to see and you will see some options.  I often just hide things I don’t want to see over and over.  Occasionally, actually more and more lately, I have strange posts pop up that are poorly disguised advertisements, I wish I knew how to stop those altogether.
(2) Roger C. in PA: Another fine example of creative expression.  Keep writing – you are #1.
(3) Les E. in CA: If you haven’t seen Déjà vu with Denzel Washington you are missing one tremendous film. I’ve seen it dozens of times and can always watch it again. I once watched it twice in a row stopping only to take a leak. He is a great actor and this is my favorite movie of his.
My favorite all-time movie is Pulp Fiction. I’ve watched that 40 times or so. Sure, it’s not family fare, but my kid loves it too–he’s 24.
(4) John D. in PA: Good catch on the Gordie Howe movie. Wife and I watched it last night on Hallmark channel. Interesting and enjoyable flick for a TV movie.
(5) Herb S. in NJ: An 80th baseball birthday card [written by Herb’s son Matt]
(6) Susan R. in NC: From photo shoot of upcoming novel, “Chimes From a Cracked Southern Belle.” Anyone

can call 828-277-0998 to pre-order a signed copy for a 10 percent discount. Soon it will be on Amazon and other links. Thanks for all of your support my friends!

(8) Lori H. in PA: Saw the Great Gatsby in 3D. Baz gets a thumbs up from me. It’s definitely filmed very artistically. The costumes are cool. Never read the book but enjoyed the story.

(9) Ruth W. in PA: STAY TUNED IN MAY: This week’s Live Your Peace guest Paul Hoyt and next week Possibility Coacheshttp://bit.ly/12Lqqnm

So honored to share these in depth conversations with transformational community leaders.

(10) Terri L. in NC (with a REQUEST FOR HELP): Believe it or not, I’m going to jail and I need your help. While it’s not a real jail, it’s even more important as I’m raising bail to help children and adults with muscle disease in my community who are supported by the vital work of the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA). I might not be able to rely on good behavior to get out so that’s why I need your help – I need you to donate to my bail! Just click on the donation button to make a secure donation – I know that together we’ll Make a Muscle and Make a Difference in the fight against muscle disease.

(11) Michael T. in NC: One of my current reads is Brain Rules by John Medina. Practical advice for daily life based on the latest and greatest in brain science.

Note: I saw the above (see next week’s issue) and can tell you it’s fantastic. Do catch it if you can. 
(6) Art A. in NC: We went to see the play/musical in  Hendersonville [Flat Rock Playhouse venue in that city], Cotton Patch Gospel. It was wonderful. Great Bluegrass music. Very talented actors and the story is very funny- a  recereation of the life of Jesus in the state of Georgia. I wasn’t sure  about it beforehand when I read the synopsis of the story, but I have to say even with my Jewish background, the play is definitely worth seeing. Great music and great acting.
Note: It runs through May 19. For more information, please click:

(8) Jeff Thompson Concert at Hanger Hall

Section 12B, PA/NJ events

(1) Pat A. in PA: I think of Gilbert & Sullivan musicals as the Monty Python shows of the Victorian era, hilariously deflating British pomposity and poking fun at the seriousness of Victorian manners and fashions.  The upcoming show by the BucksCountyGilbert & Sullivan Society is a winner in those respects: “Patience, or Bunthorne’s Bride” has two over-dramatic poets, a gaggle of ladies who faint at their feet, one sensible lass and a regiment of manly-men soldiers who couldn’t recite a couplet if their moustaches depended upon it.  It should be an extremely fun show (June 14 and 15), and my husband will suit up as one of the manly-men!  To see the poster –  I’m working on it bit by bit, you can watch the progress – and get a run-down of the plot, you can take a look at my blog at http://achillesportfolio.wordpress.com/2013/05/02/painting-patience-part-3/
