(Via Pasadena Star News)
Media outlets swarmed Huntington Hospital on Tuesday waiting for confirmation that Randy Jackson, brother of the late Michael Jackson, was being treated for chest pains.
A source close to the Jackson family who spoke only on the condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to speak publicly said Jackson, 48, experienced chest pains around noon and was taken to Huntington, where he is awaiting the outcome of tests. The source said doctors think it was a mild heart attack, but this has not yet been confirmed.
The announcement sparked a media frenzy. CBS, ABC and the Star-News were on scene, but unable to confirm whether the member of the Jackson 5 was being treated at Huntington.
"By law, I can only confirm patients that are in our hospital database," said Andrea Stalding, hospital spokeswoman.
Randy Jackson's hospitalization comes less than one year after his brother died, shocking many in the entertainment world and beyond.

Stay strong Randy.
Michael died one year ago and that is the truth.
Katherine's heart is clearly broken...but looking at her face in that photo brings truth so I am sure those who choose not to see the truth do not really see her pain, her overwhelming agony at losing her beautiful child.
Randy is struggling with the death of his brother Michael...and now he is in physical distress. Randy is one who really seemed close to his brother up to the end.
Michael's death is real, his family's pain and distress is real...and that is the truth.
Murray did kill this patient, a patient that trusted his doctor, paid his doctor very well, to keep him safe. Murray's arrogance and intense greed killed Michael. Randy believes 'others' are involved...only Murray can admit and reveal that truth...and I do not see that ever happening.
Respect Michael's death. He deserves to rest in peace.
To those who would like to help make that change, there is much need of manpower in the gulf...I posted the contacts but is was taken down. Google and find the way...'make that change'!!
Rest in peace sweet Michael.
Dance with God.
i sense an angel watching him
an angel a man and always a king
i believe i will be there its all for love love is free
Get well soon Randy
Randy ,You will be fine,because you are stronger than you know.we respect the Entire Jackson family ,and we support you All. Much Love And a million hugs ,I am sending to you today and always ..Maria C.
Get Well soon Randy. Our prayers r with u, we know ur brother is looking after you in heaven. Be Strong!
Randy is a good man.
They are all good people.
So for Conrad to do that, was definitely out of jealousy.
I hope Randy is doing well, if he had chest pains or suffered a mild heart attack. I hope the Jacksons are doing well too. I hope the best and I pray that they'll be strong this month. I actually can relate to this month is DEFINITELY a bad month, but I do really hope all is well, and that Michael has it's justice !
I just want to wish you good health and along life that god will give you and family stay strong and keep praying maybe we will get the truth about your brother michael i miss him dearly i just wish i could had told him i loved him and spend more time with him i lost my friend michael j jackson shaun T conner
Good morning everyone,
A special hello to you Patty we miss you here.
As I said on the other bloggy he had chest pains because CM is getting away with murder, we all have chest pains because he left MJ to die alone while he was on the phone. Randy stay away from CM or you might wind up like your brother. Our prayers are with you RJ stay strong for the voice of ~Michael~
Randy pleae take care of yourself...I know this is a very stressful time for you and your family...but be strong...we are here for the family...I know that the fans continue to keep you in our hearts and prayers...Justice for Michael will come but we have to be patient and let the wheels of justice turn...
Get well Randy – your mother can't take losing another child.
Sending prayers of healing and strength to Randy Jackson and to the entire Jackson family. Be blessed.
JUSTICE FOR MICHAEL 8)
DR. QUACK IS WACK
Get well soon Randy–our prayers are with you. May God be with you all at this most stressful time in your lives. This too shall pass!
Interesting the article states that the media was all over the hospital yet only TMZ and some bloggers reported it. Does anyone know if he was taken by ambulance or did someone take him there?
Prayers to you Randy =)
Hope you feel better, Randy... Michael wouldn't have wanted to see you or any of his family suffer. He is finally at peace now from this crazy world and God will always be there for him, and for us as well. Just keep praying that Michael is happy, and let God do the rest. No need suffering over something we cannot control. I miss Michael so much and wish he was still here, but if Michael is happier in heaven, then that's where he should be... we can't hold him back because of our own feelings.
God bless you.
To do nothing evil is good; to wish nothing evil is better.
i love michael so much and deeply devastated with his death!i wonder how his family is dealing with this massive heartbreak.what are we to do now without our angel here to dance and sing and take away our worries(tears!)take care randy,you've got to be strong to preserve and protect michael's legacy,we the fans will always stand by you!
take care, Randy!
It is not clear whether Randy Jackson suffered a mild heart attack; however, he is out of the hospital and resting at home.
As the time approaches the year anniversary of Michael's untimely death, the anxiety and stress on individual family members reliving and mourning his passing will intensify.
My prayers go out to the entire family, especially Katherine!
Purple Haze,I love your comment.(Smiles) to you.
Randy Jackson - Not His First Heart Attack
Originally posted Jun 16th 2010 7:50 AM PDT by TMZ Staff
0616_randy_EXD_Getty_01TMZ has learned Randy Jackson - MJ's brother - was extra cautious about handling his chest pains yesterday because he's experienced a heart attack in the past.
As we previously reported, Randy checked himself into a Pasadena hospital yesterday - but a rep from the family tells us Randy is now back at home and "doing OK."
It's unclear when Randy suffered his previous heart attack - or how severe it was.
Take care Randy...stay strong.
@KEEP THE FAITH
come sit with me my child let your worries all run free
i will comfort you my child i will keep you company
i will be your saviour child i will help you in your hour of need
my strength will be your strength my love to you i will feed
let those tears go child just let them all flow out
and if you are feeling angry just go ahead and shout
i will not desert you no matter what you do
if you have got a problem together we will get thru
your suffering is my suffering your pain belongs to me
your sorrow is my sorrow everything i see
but where as others walk away that i will never do
i am always by your side to help you to get thru
my child it may seem strange these things were meant to be
they are sent to form a test to help you to find me
oh my dear sweet child do not ever feel afraid
dont ever regret decisions or choices you have made
if you look within yourself and search for answers true
you will find a courage which you never knew
i am always watching you you just look around and see
softly call out jesus and i will set you free
Love You Randy...
Take it easy & Rest
Remember when we lit a candle for Michael on Thanksgiving in solidarity? Can we do the same on June 25? That gave me a sense of peace and felt like I was paying my own little tribute to Michael.
Suzie Q. and MMJ would participate....even if it is at midnight...it would be our tribute to Michael!
Love to you!
it flew up high in to the air
its wings spread wide without a care
so graceful and yet so free
oh how i wish that bird was me
to fly with ease to fly so high
way up in to that clear blue sky
its such a beautiful sight to see
oh how i wish that bird was me
flying free from day to day
with not one obstacle to block its way
the bird of freedom is what i see
oh how i wish that bird was me
diving gliding thru the sky
flying low then flying high
but most of all being free
oh how i wish that bird was me
Know this...The Man in the Mirror lives through business ventures like the Ubisoft deal, Cirque de Soleil, the new album, merchandise...these as well as others were initiated since 2006-07 so be rest assured that what you see the estate approve were projects and ideas that had been long on the drawing table.
I posted this on another blog, but wanted to repost – has anyone seen the documentary The Michael Jackson Trials? It aired on the Documentary Channel earlier this week. I was hesitant to watch it because of the title, but it was great. Hadn't heard anything else about it, just stumbled upon it. A couple of ammateurs started off wanting to do a documentary on MJ fans during the trial – ended up totally bashing how the media portrayed the whole thing. Has anyone else seen it?
Don't forget to download We've Had Enough on itunes or Amazon. I had never heard the song before. When you first listen to it, make sure you have the lyrics in front of you...holy goosebumps! Mike sounds more emotional in this song than any other, in my opinion.
The ignorant mind, with its infinite afflictions, passions, and evils, is rooted in the three poisons. Greed, anger, and delusion.
Michael, I'm waiting for you!
Purple Haze,quite a lot of truths in the quote you posted,thanks for sharing.(Smiles)
I had read where Michael was trying to get into video games...and he loved Cirque so I imagine he was entertaining the idea of an MJ show when he was alive. It's just sad he is not here to see all this come to fruition, and to receive all the accolades being bestowed upon him in his memory. Which begs the ?, would all this be happening if he were alive? I would like to think yes but much of the world and industry turned their backs on him after 2005. He would have redeemed himself with the O2 concerts but I wonder if anything would have been enough.
RIP Sweet MJ.
Not Invincible (IYKWIM) June 16th, 2010 1:03 pm ET
I have nos seen that doc. but have read "Michael Jackson Conspiracy' by Aphrodite and watched her show. I will try and find it...thanks.
Randy Jackson will be healthy
I posted yesterday about the Ubisoft deal, this is great news, hoping there is a lot more to come
Hi randy I hope u get well I'm an orignal jackson fan meaning the whole fam. I have collected almost everything on ya"ll I love yall and want the whole fam to know I'm praying for all of u and
I miss michael so...luv u r number 1 fan char– jacksons
if i could give the moon and stars to you
it is something that i would gladly do
if you asked for a rainbow in the sky
for you my king i would give it a try
but none of these things could ever repay
the love you gave us everyday
you opened your heart and let us see
the true depth of your humanity
to heal the world was your dream
impossible for you it would not seem
cos god was always on your side
a beauty that you did not hide
you wanted the world to be a better place
for all living things not just the human race
and this dream it can come true
our eyes are open thanks to you
its up to us to put things right
you gave us faith to win this fight
Not Invincible ,No I have not seen the documentary, but it is nice to hear that they seen through the media and gave back what they dished out,I would say it looked good on them,About time the media got bashed for their ignorance.
As for Michaels song, We've Had Enough.I will most certainly down load it from itunes.Thanks for all the information.(Smiles) to you.
@ALL, I wanted to share this; 'Eyes will open Hearts will....Listen'.
It is hard to believe Aug 23 ,is the same date , 5 yrs ago Gavins mother was charged with fraud ,and this is the next date for Dr .Murrays case? Also it was almost 5 yrs to the date that Michael was ..acquitted ,June 13 2005 .Please correct me if my dates are not correct. There are so many coencidences ,surrounding all of these matters.Didnt Randy mention there being a lot of 'Coencidences ' too? Let the truth come out ,as Janet 'tweeted'.Whatever those truths may be....Love to youAll Maria C.
babycarie – Yeah, Aphrodite's book is pheonomenal. She is actually seen in the documentary, but not exactly in a good way (does get a plug for her book, though). Definitely look for it, but I couldn't find when it was showing again. I'll let you know if I come across it...
Pixie Dust – You're welcome :)
Carie ironically and painfully, it took Death to turn around the haters...
I jast can`t stop loving you
Nothing is so strong as gentleness and nothing is so gentle as real strength.
Praying for a speedy recovery for you Randy! My prayers are also with your family! We love the Jacksons!!!
It is not clear whether Randy Jackson suffered a mild heart attack; however, he is out of the hospital and resting at home. In 2001 he was also diagnosed with Type II diabetes.
As the time approaches the year anniversary of Michael's passing, the anxiety and stress on individual family members reliving and mourning his passing will intensify.
Bless you, Randy........I wish you well.
everything will be fine!
Tweet from Dunk:
It's time the fans know the truth and ur one of the very few I trust n doing so. I got ur back all the way bro, whatever u need. I love u!

@ Not Invincible (IYKWIM)
I just downloaded "We've Had Enough" It is awesome! OMG what a song! Thanks for the information!
Little Randy Tweets:
I didn't abandon my brother in 2005, and I sure as H*** won't do it now!
7:41 PM Jun 6th via web
The will: Me knowing my brother, Yes I believe its fake. I’d love 2 talk more in depth, but can’t. Am I doing something about it? of course
7:33 PM Jun 6th via web
Oh, God! "The news also comes on the same day that Dr. Conrad Murray, who was Michael Jackson's physician at the time of his death, was allowed to keep his medical license."
All the best, Randy!
@cris June 16th, 2010 1:01 pm ET - yep, you R right, those are definitely projects well planned a while ago; I guess was fun for MJ to see the "virtual MJ" gaining shape with the help of that Unisoft :-)
its all about the tears they have cried
and all the pain they feel inside
but what about the pains in you
and all the lies they put you thru
its all about the joy you bring
and how much they love to hear you sing
but what about the life for you
how many here are really true
they have ripped apart your family
the gold pants is all they see
they think its just done for cash
and the jackson name they like to trash
and when they want to be a fake
another name they will take
i think its time some opened there eyes
start being yourselves stop living in lies
sorry if this does upset
but some still have not got it yet
and also if you do not agree
nasty words dont send to me
just take your time to think things thru
that change has to begin with you
Purple Haze,that is the ultimate quote you made at 3:20 pm.If we all practice this here on the bloggy,it would stay so peaceful,just as it has been today.Sending (Smiles) your way.
Candy! How are you ? I enjoyed your comment! Thank you ....Love Maria C.
True-To-You ,nicely stated ,you most certainly know how to get your point across as well,good for you.(Smiles) to you.
Be happy with what you have and are, be generous with both, and you won't have to hunt for happiness.
Good night! Bless you!
sorry for my english
@pixiedust my friend so true
as you know i am not blind
i state the truth and try to be kind
i have had enough of seeing lies
so i am baking up some custard pies
and if there is no love to see
a custard pie they will get from me
and i tell you i wont miss the spot
my aim is true and so red hot
cos many knifes they have thrown at me
but i am still smiling can you see
so a smile i will leave for you
many pies to bake for true
@Maria C. I am fine thank you, hope U R doing well too! I v.much enjoy your comments as well!
@cris . talking about the will being fake is a good start 4 Randy, which document comes next than? It's a long waiting line, so they'd better "rush" it a bit :-)
Sadly, there are still haters, even though there may be a lot less than before, some people will just not admit they are wrong.
I hope you are feeling well.
And yes, cris, the hate is selective...it was saturated when Michael lived and now those who turned their backs are reaching out at the memorial, on news programs, in the tabloids...for their own publicity. It turns my stomach. Michael was broken after that trial, and had zero support. Now everyone remembers him as a shining star. Where were they when???
Yes, Jan, it is horrendous...great word!!
Randy acknowledges Michael's death...he is questioning the authenticity of the will because of errors...but he does not dispute the reality...that his brother was murdered by Murray.
Janet tweets to Randy:
Hey @randyjackson8, I want to tell u that I saw ur piece on cnn and I thought u were great! 4:27 PM Jun 14th via web
It's time the fans know the truth and ur one of the very few I trust n doing so. I got ur back all the way bro, whatever u need. I love u! 4:28 PM Jun 14th via web
cris...the way you posted Janet's tweet was misleading...the TRUTH is Janet agrees with what Randy is saying...that Michael was murdered and there needs to be justice...and she has Randy's back.
True-To-You,I totaly understand where you are coming from,and yes you tell them how it is.Sending (Smiles) from the heart.
Mary-Jane,thank you so ,for sharing the video,It was most excellent and yes it sure gave me the goosebumps.Isn't that weird how some songs can do that to a person.Very moving,this is the type of song that usually tops the charts.sure hoping it does as it most certainly belongs there.(Smiles) to you.
Michael I'LL BE THERE!
And I love you so much for the rest of my life.
I'm waiting for you.
I have a special place for you in my heart.
I love you most!
jan, you are so right on that one.some people refuse to admit to being wrong, they continue to hate.Very sad it is.Talking to people like that is like talking to a brick wall,can't seem to get thru to them, to get them to see truths Hopefully one day in time they will see the truths.,maybe not today,but hopefully tomorrow.(Smiles) to you.
I just want to make it clear, that 7even is NOT me.
@7even my friend
you are pretty confident with that boast
its all believers that love him most
its not a word you just say
you show that love in every way
and here upon larrys blog
us believers have had to slog
because he is our one true king
we have defended him thru thick and thin
we have showed them all we have had enough
respect our king or we get tough
we have been doing this night and day
ever since he stepped away
and believe me it has not always been sweet
the abuse we have seen can make you weep
because he is our one true king
us believers will never give in
we keep on coming back for more
he is the one we do adore
so all believers love him most
and to those believers i raise a toast
cos for every day of this i am sure
us believers will love him much more
Thank you for posting the video for that song. What an emotional song!
@seven my friend so true
oh my gosh now i am in trouble
i do believe i am seeing double
i have only been on my favourite drink
so i am not drunk if thats what you think
there is another 7even in front of me
but only one seven there will ever be
and that is you you are my shrink
so lets go and get another drink
and as you are a friend so true
the real thing and its on you
I wanted to share this quote. It made me think of the Jackson family and especially Michael with all that they have had to face.
"You never know how strong you are until being strong is the only choice you have.."
Stay strong everyone....keep the faith....truth will prevail !!
Stay strong, Randy – we're praying for you.
@ TRUE-TO -YOU
Lol not even a good double :D
You know where to find the original one.
LOVE & BLESSINGS
We look forward to the time when the power to love will replace the love of power. Then will our world know the blessings of peace.
@The Jackson brothers ,this quote reminds my heart of you ALL.
'It is not what he has ,or even what he does ,which expresses the worth of a man,but what he IS .' Henri Frederic Amiel
Stay up ,stay tight ,stay strong ...stay united .I Love you All ,Maria C.
no double could ever do
i will always love my friend so true
after all we share a brain
both 24/7 and truly insane
you are you and i am me
or is it the other way around let me see
now i need another drink
strawberryshake it is i think
Sending lot's of Love and prayers to Randy Jackson.
I pray that you have a speedy recover and all will be well,
I thought we were double trouble :D
I´m you and you´re me ?...let me now see...hmmm
@*seven* my friend so true
double trouble you and me
i am innocent cant you see
ok i confess i am cheeky to
its just another part of you
do you want another part of me
now let me think what can it be
I heard murray wished Randy a fast recovery or something like that. maybe murray should treate Randy too, see where that leads to...
poor Randy is suffering the death of his brother and he is undere so much stress.
And five years ago Arvizo had Mcdonald at the exact same time and place as Murray did last week. what a coincidence! that proves that michael is alive! LOL
Best wishes to you, Randy, for a full and quick recovery. Please take care of yourself and relax.
I hope you are able to enjoy good health and happiness for a long, long time to come.
Please get well soon Randy...I'll still be praying for you. God bless you Randy and the whole Jackson family. Love hugs and blessings
@ missin MJ
@ "Pixie Dust"
It was my pleasure to post the video even though CNN removed it. @ Not Invincible IYKWIM.... stated, it is beautiful as well as emotional. Thank you for your kind comments.
Thank You......... (If You Know What I Mean)
Wishing all the best to Randy Jackson and his health.
That was a nice interview that Randy gave and we haven't been seeing him talking much or even that much of him. I like that smile he gave to the camera after he was talking about Michael's Will and the misspelling of the children's names.
Good to see him keeping his brother's legacy alive. God bless him and the Jackson Family.
That Murray wished Randy well makes my skin crawl. He is such an arrogant callous man. Randy really needs to take it easy...Katherine needs him. I worry about her...I cannot imagine what she is going through, trying to keep MJ3 safe ans protect them, the Murray slap in the face, and now Randy. She is a very strong woman obviously, because she survived years with Joe, but she is older now and this is quite a lot for anyone. My prayers go out to her.
Good to see you again Elly!!
Elly ,Can you expound a little on your last 2 comments,you mentioned some 'coencidences',and something about Mc Donalds? Perhaps I am misunderstanding ? Looking forard to hearing from you1 Thank you ,Love Maria C.
Beverly Chicago! Nice to see you here tonite sister ! And isnt it so nice to see the return of Peace ;.....And we hope to hear good reports about Randy ! Love /hugs to you Maria C.
Yes!! Michael actually ordered from McD's last week!!! Or was that an impersonator...hmmm...!
Randy really speaks well in that CNN interview...Michael died and Randy is both angry and heartbroken. The frustration regarding Murray keeping his license must really overwhelm the family. I could not imagine if a doctor killed my brother and was free to live his life...unreal.
no, offense honey, but you need to read between the lines.
I am worried too. I hope nothing happens to katherin or Randy. those kids need them. hopefully randy tells us the truth soon.
Mary-Jane ,yes,i know what you mean,CNN, don't allow the videos up too long.And yes I know that Not Invincible made the wonderful statements.about the song,sorry about that I was in a hurry and should of directed my thank you to you and the comments to Not Invincible.(Smiles) to you.
Not Invincible I agree with your wonderful comments about Michaels' new song.very emotional.(Smiles) to you.
Wow, they are quick to take down the videos now I see.
Well I just wanted to say from watching the video that was here moments ago..........I always love the shot of Michael sitting up in that tree at Neverland. It looks quite high up there too. That was Michael showing another side of himself. I used to love climbing trees when I was young, was a bit of a tomboy, but I don't think I could climb a tree today to save my life.
Purple Haze,wow, these quotes are something else.This one is just as good as the one before.Marvelous(Smiles) to you.
You're in our prayers.
I hope you get better soon. Take care and Blessings.
@Dear bloggers :-)
Goodnite and sweet dreams. See you soon.
MEXICO LOVES MJ!!
honey is sweet and i can be to
so no offence is meant for you
you need to wake up sweety pie
believe in him he did not die
read between the lines i say to you

Lucero (Mexico) Good night and sweet dreams to you.Here is a (smile) just for you.
Marguerite,just sending a smile your way in hopes you had a wonderful day!
Stay Strong and Positive. Celebrate the message!!!!!!!!
hmmm,I've noticed Rock With You Horsegirl hasn't been around much lately blogging,She really must be into those tutorials to learn how to dance.Hope she is havin lots of fun.Sending (Smiles) out to Horsegirl.
doubtingthomas2010,I love your little message as always.(Smiles) to you.
Gee,I am starting to feel like Maria C,that maybe I talk too much sorry about that.Some comments are just so worthwhile to comment on (Smiles) to all.
I think the family knows more about Michael's death than they are revealing...the media are such vultures they need to be careful.
Randy was close with Michael up until his death,,,he probably knows more than anyone what happened. As Janet tweeted, it's time to tell the truth. Randy would like to see murder 1...agreed!!
Take care Elly!!
Hope to see you again soon!!!
Rest in peace sweet Michael.
Randy's message is very clear...he wants your fans to be your voice for justice!!
Elly ,Quite often ,it is the reading between the lines that has brought me here ! LOL....I just didnt understand your comment ,thats all.Love Maria C.
Lucero ,Good night and sweet dreams ,so nice to see you here again! Love Maria C.
Jessie ! Good to see you here ,and Randys concerns over the Will,very interesting .....And the mispelled names of the children ? Time will tell....Love Maria C.
Pixie Dust ,Good nite ,and sleep well...you are a good friend ! Love Maria C.
Jeesie ,I bet you could climb up into that tree! Michael looked so peaceful indeed in that tree! What a nice place to be ,and to think! Love Maria C
Hola and buenas noches Lucero!!!
Much love and peace to you!
MariaC, thanks,a little early for bed for me I was sayin good night to Lucero(Mexico).Gee if I went to bed now i would be up at 3.(Smiles) to you Maria,you are a good friend to.
In that video from the basshir interview where Michael is in the tree....he looks so sad and lost...and Katherine's photo on the previous blog...heartbreaking. We all see what we want to see I guess. You and I see the truth, much like Michael's family.
Love to you Elly!
Pixie Dust- :)
Maria C- you are too kind.
Good to hear went to MacDonalds. Some significance.
Pixie Dust- I Had a wonderful day and thank you for the smile.
Marguerite, great,not as good as fantastic,but almost.
Jessie from Auckland,NZ- be easy, watch where you are going don't fall for a trap that will lead to the opposite of where this blog should be.
Stay strong and positive, Celebrate the message!!!!!!
Mary-Jane and Pixie Dust – my pleasure, it is an incredible song. There's an effort to try to get it to #1 by the 25th. A mass download campaign of sorts.
A year ago today, I had never seen Thriller, never heard of Man in the Mirror, had no idea who sang Billie Jean, thought Michael Jackson made himself white, had no idea what a single glove was about, didn't even know Janet Jackson was Michael Jackson's sister, and thought Michael Jackson had strange relationships with kids. It eats me up inside to see what had to happen for people like me to get to know such an amazing human being. The majority of us truly didn't know what we had until
he was gone. It makes me absolutely sick. I've literally listened to Michael every day since I "discovered" him. Thanks to the true longtime fans for allowing us bandwagoners to join the fight for justice. Long live the King.
Wow, Not Invincible (IYKWIM)- it is never too late.
Stay Strong and Positive. Celebrate the message!!!!!!
of course the family knows everything but they can't probably talk about it. either because they are not ready or it will hurt the case. either way I can't wait for the truth to come out. I agree michael looked very sad in bashir's interview, one thing he said in that interview always bugs me alot. he told bashir in that shopping mall in las vagas that he does ever want to die. everytime I remember his voice saying that, it makes me cry. I only watched that interview once and I will never watch it again. every minute of it was so sad and cruel.
Not Invincible (IYKWIM),That would be so cool to see Michael's song make it to #1,I am sorry you missed out on such a spectacular man whom brought the finest music,and dance to entertain the world.It is never too late to enjoy his music and dance.So enjoy,I am sure you will like what you see.Excellence at it's best.(Smiles) to you.
What an impressive post! I read it a couple of times. It seems you have learned much in the past year. What a change in perspective regarding Michael Jackson. I am really taken back by your post and the depth in which you articulate your experience. I hope you continue to post on LKL.
I have a question for you. How or why did you decide to make all these changes in your view of Michael? What was the precipitating factor or event that took place in your life for such a monumental change? Thank You!
Carie yes you are correct. My apologies. I posted Dunk's tweet to show her support for Randy. I was a gassed as I sat and watched at the Memorial how many who were not their for The Man in the Mirror in Life were suddenly there in Death. And then those who were there in Life like Quincy and Diana not be there in Death. It is really shocking how a man must Die so that the Truth balances out...it's sad...very sad....Blessings to you Carie.
May you all enjoy the rest of your evening,and I will take that que now Maria, goodnight (Smiles) to all.
@cris-its called "face time." There will be more of that in the days ahead. No doubt about that.
Stay Strong and Positive. Celebrate the message!!!!!!!!
typo on purpose...a gassed meaning "Aghast"
cris- Michael's friends were his friends because they kept their mouths shut. It looked like everyone wanted to jump on the bandwagon when Michael died.
cris- By the way Michael did not die. He is very much alive.
Good Evening Folks –
Good to hear that Randy is back home resting and recuperating. That is what is important now for him and to be with his family. I wish him the very best and may God keep him in his care.
@ Letta –
Hello my dear friend, I hope your day went well today. Again I enjoy your beautiful words of the day in the morning. It is a great way to start the day. =)
@ Mr A –
I hope and pray your doing well. It is great to see your posts around here. Though I'm sorry that a few of your posts couldn't get thru for some reason. I hope to see you again soon some day and chat with you. This time I'll try to be more talkative lol. I just wonder why you haven't shown up anymore. I hope no one offended you but also I understand we all got our lives to live beyond the net. You just happen to be very busy. Again we miss you and please come by when you get a chance but when I come home from work. lol. I hate to miss a genuine person like you.
Again Prayers Sent To Randy
your post @1:03, was breathe taking. I am so happy that you finally, see who the media treat Michael and told may lies, to get people to turn their backs on him. It's okay that now you have finally see what Michael is all about, and you can enjoy his music to the fullest. Your post made me think about all the bad that is now throw out and all the good is coming back. It's nice to know that inspite of all the gabage that has been said about Michael, is not stopping us from Loving the true man, the Human being that is is. Thank you so much for sharing your feeling with us on the blog. I pray that you continue to post comments here, I'm pretty they will be interesting, Hug, Love and Lots
of Blessing coming your way. Letta
@Pixie Dust. Good night and pray for a peaceful rest.
Hi there, hope that your day went well today. As, I stated before so sorry that you are having problems posting. Hope that they will let your posts go through now. I wonder about your last visit, because that may cause you not to visit anmore. I hope that is not the case here. Maybe you are very busy and time will not allow you to stop by these days. I do hope that you will fine the time one day to drop by for a short or long visit to chat. Until then please continue to be healthly and get plenty of rest. Don't work too hard (smiles) ,Love, Hugs & many, many Blessings
Hello, sorry that you are not in a good place at this time. Work can become very stressful and leaves you without time to visit or even talk. But, i can understand about that my treatments take's a toll on me sometimes. Everytime it is time to go I have to talk myself out the door, or remember that at one time a promise a good friend dear to me that I would not miss any more of my treatments. So, I do know how hard it is to do more then what you can. But I just wanted to let you know that sometimes you cross my mind and I have not had the opportunity to talk with you lately. Hope, that you would find sometime, set aside to have a conversation with me. Until I speak with you again, I pray that you are in good health and not overdoing it. Love & Hugs and Plenty of Blessings., Letta

Kind words do not cost mucn
They never blister the tongue or lips
They make other people good natured.
They also produce their own image
on men' souls, and beautiful image it is. (B.P.P)
No Kind action ever stops with itself.
One kind actions lead to another. Good
example to followed. A single act of that kindness
throws out roots in all directions, and the
roots spring up and make new trees.
The greastest work that kindness does to
others is that it makes them kind themselves. (A. E.)
For this very reasons, make every effort
to add to your faith goodness, and to goodness,
knowledge; and to knowledge, self-control, and to
self-control, perserverance; and in perserverance,
godliness; and to godliness, brotherely kindless; and
to brotherely kindness, love.
For if you possess these qalities in increasing measure,
they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive
in your knowledge of Our Lord Savior Jesus Christ.

And five years ago Arvizo had Mcdonald at the exact same time and place as Murray did last week. what a coincidence! that proves that michael is alive! LOL
Oh, and didn't Murray once order KFC? Proves that he liked KFC, just like Michael. There's another clue for you ;)
I have heard talk and talk, but nothing is done.
cris June 17th, 2010 12:31 am ET
Carie yes you are correct. My apologies. I posted Dunk's tweet to show her support for Randy.
I KNOW!! How unbelievably pathetic was that to post HALF the tweet several times to make it look like something its not!!! Much like all the 'research' which is bits and parts of articles mixed in with bogus youtube garbage! If looking at Katherine's face on the previous article and listening to Randy in this CNN interview does not bring reality then reality was never in the brains!! Synapsis not firing and eyes are clearly fogged with delusions!! With all the truth there is still the ignorance. And sometimes sickening sweet proverbs or self made sermons that make you taste a little vomit in the mouth!!!
We know the truth!
We will ALWAYS be there!!!!
Love you Suzie Q!!!
Dance with God.
One thing Michael hated was when people used him...and look at this blog...he is being used over and over for many to have a social gathering. But it is being done with superficial LOVE so I guess its excused.
June 25...it is so hard to believe Michael will be gone one year.
Murray wishes Randy well...can you imagine??!!
Katherine is dealing with so much...I know where Michael got his strength. I guess she should thank Joe...he put her through hell for years and now she seems to have rhinoceros skin times two!
Stay strong Katherine.
how do you survive in a world so unjust
you look for true friends in whom you can trust
rejected from society they say you are not right
i believe in the truth and for that i will fight
Hi all!I am in Hungary,so i post less,but i just want to wish Randy to got well.He realy take his brother legacy and death on his heart!
Thank you for the info.
As for the half posted tweet, I think it was done for a purpose much like the visit to McDonalds and other subtle and not so subtle stuff that is manipulative. Playing games here has gotten old.
So Murray signed 'a document' the day before Michael died...but that document was not his contract. What was that document...the acknowledgment that said equip. was needed? His contract was still being reworked 2 days prior to Michael's death...was it ever signed? If not is AEG still responsible for not providing what was requested? I am confused as to what this means. If Murray was not legally under contract, he is still negligent in Michael's death but how is AEG being connected? Sorry Susan, law is not my thing!!
'assist him in performing the services as approved by (AEG)'
So this proves AEG knew what Murray was doing...that Murray was administering propofol to Michael??
So sorry Susan...
I am nursing BC and trying to decipher that info.
So, AEG agreed to provide said equip. requested by Murray and this was confirmed in the contract that Murray signed a day prior to Michael's death?? So Murray's contract with AEG/Michael was approved and signed before Michael died...but was the equip. meant to be for the tour?? If AEG agreed to a contract for the tour, then does that cover Murray performing services in the home prior to start of the tour...will this matter??
UGH!! As I said, law is not my thing!!!
I really apologize....I am having brain spasms today!! I will have to read that info later as it really is not making sense to me. This is why the blogs need to be blogs and not filtered delays!!!
And as you can see I am not afraid to admit cluelessness!!
Stuci,Hope All is well with you and your family! Nice to see you back! Love Maria C.
'Pixie Dust' ,I was thinking back ,and rmembering why I was attracted to this blog ,and it was the Love here ,being shown to Michael.
In addition,to that ,It was around Sept,when I started seeing so many coencidences,and after many mths the coencidences added up to far too many .So like thousnds of others ,I began my own research .Admittedly through it all ,I have come to care for and Love others more .Michael has taught me many lifes lessons.
I dont mean for this to sound 'syruppy sweet ',or like a 'sermon'...no I just want to share what I feel in my heart and in my mind .Some might say theses very things are what keeps one sane! At least I'd like to beLIEve so ! Love see you soon Maria C.
Joe Jackson Blames AEG for Michael's Death
Originally posted 30 minutes ago by TMZ Staff
Dr. Conrad Murray had requested lifesaving equipment and back-up help for Michael Jackson from the promoter of the London concerts - AEG - but the company never came through, according to a new complaint filed by Joe Jackson.
TMZ broke the story - Joe was gunning for AEG by filing complaints with the California Medical Board and another agency, alleging the concert promoter abused Jackson in a way that led to his death - and he's just filed with the Medical Board.
Joe claims days before Jackson's death Murray had requested a heart resuscitation machine and a nurse in several e-mails making the request, but AEG never provided it.
According to the complaint, Joe is accusing AEG of co-opting Murray's medical judgment by enticing him with a huge salary - in effect engaging in the "unlawful practice of corporate medicine."
Besides the CPR machine, Murray also asked for saline, catheters, needles and a gurney.
AEG and Murray had no comment.
In LAYMANS terms for dummies like me!!!
Negligence beyond comprehension!!!
Okay, one more thing for now...
Doesn't this also prove beyond doubt that Murray knew what he was doing was without proper equipment yet he did it any way??? This would prove murder 2??!
I need to take a walk....my brain is out to lunch today!!!
Love and peace all!!
And sorry for my confusion on the bloggy!!
If all that was requested then it should have been a clear sign that Michael was in no condition to perform.
And that is my final post for now...feeling bad about clogging the blog but at least I stick to Michael!!
Good Morning everyone... Ah another wonderful day full of adventure....
@ Letta... thank you for the wonderful poem. You always bring in sunshine into this site. Thank you o' kind one!
@Rhonda... Hugs to you. Its nice to see you here. Sending you lots of warmth and healing.....
missinmj ... take care of yourself. I will catch you on the flip side tonight! Stay well as you work a lot of hours....
Thank you for the information. I find it interesting to say the least that Murray signed the document the day before Michael passed on.
The AP article is confusing, especially where CM signed a document and yet an AEG email said they were still negotiating 2 days after MJ's death.
When MJ died, the LAPD impounded CM's car (actually it was his sisters car). The LAPD said there was an AEG contract signed by CM but not signed by AEG in the car. I don't know what was written in that contract. It also appears from the AP article that someone from AEG may have sent a copy to CM too soon (prior to being finalized) or it was only a draft for CM to review.
AEG has always denied signing a contract or hiring CM. If the AP report is factual, that means that AEG, at that point in time, did intend to provide the equipment CM requested and in CM's contract it stated AEG "shall provide Dr. Murray for his use during the term with medical equipment requested by Dr. Murray to assist him in performing the services as approved by (AEG)." That means anything CM needed had to be approved first by AEG rather than CM buying things and charging it to AEG without their knowledge.
Whether or not AEG knew about propofol involvement is unknown. IMO, I would think AEG would question why CM needed a CPR machine and a gurney.
Yes, CM is still negligent and will be tried for involuntary manslaughter and AEG is not involved in his case at all.
The emails and document writings that Joe submitted to the Medical Board means the Board and the deputy attorney general will determine if a violation has been committed by AEG. Since AEG is not in the medical field, the Board will probably do nothing. If the deputy attorney general understands the entire MJ case, there is a possibility that the deputy could check dates on those documents provided by Joe, investigate and subpoena AEG to determine if AEG was aware of what CM was actually doing (propofol) with MJ. If the deputy can find anyone at AEG that has knowledge of what CM was actually doing, then IMO, AEG could be penalized for "intent" (knowingly and supporting) CM's activities to MJ. If that happened, AEG could be responsible for aiding and abetting and but not for murder.
Even though no contracts were signed by both parties, if the deputy can prove that the intentions were in place to hire CM (which will be extremely hard to do for the deputy), then there is a possibility that CM could be paid for his past services and Joe can file a lawsuit against AEG because AEG was CM's employer.
With AEG's money and political power it would be impossible to go up against them.
Carie, I must clarify that all of this is my opinion only. I am not a legal expert. If the Medical Board investigates and files any charges against AEG, it will become public information. It would take 5 months minimum for the Board to investigate, so it's a long wait before we have answers of what is truly going on.
Oh what a circus! Oh what a show! It gets better all the time! Akon tells Vibe magazine in an article about Michael titled "Redemption" ......"everything in Mike's life is choreographed. I'm sure he's on an island somewhere relaxing just waiting for the right time to come back. He told Teddy Riley in 2008, he was going to SHOCK the world! No, I don't think he was talking about the 50 concerts, that's what he's always done, but he wanted to do something that had never been done before! You know a real life thriller!" TII – Thriller 2 – THIS IS IT!
We love you, Michael! And YES, we will be there! :) :) :)
Akon stated it is sad that Michael died...that the world lost a legend and there will never be another Michael Jackson...so that is the truth conveniently left out of all Akon quotes!!! And I am sure he would not appreciate being used to support hoax garbage!!
There is nothing that supports Michael being alive other than irrational delusional thoughts!!
OMG!! Thank you! I really could not process that at first!!!
Akon is being coy...but that goes right over the heads of the delusional!!! Funny really...he would probably laugh his butt off thinking that anyone would take that literally!!! But Akon should really know better because there are very disturbed minds in this world!!! LOL!
Tweet Randy and the family and get their response to that article...although that would produce truth so never mind.
I think the Nashville 'singer/producer' really lives in an asylum and gets daily computer privileges!
There is something very disturbing about this one!!! LOL!
I am going to read what you provided again and try and makes sense of all this. Bottom line is Michael died, and it was senseless, blatant negligence and Murray needs to pay for his part. He should lose his license permanently.
Thank you for bearing with me Susan!! BC is a handful today!!
@ Letta –
Thank you for brighten my day to start. What a way to start a work day and that is enjoying your beautiful words. Please take care – I have to run. Got up late this morning – bye.
I've just been catching up on the blogs. I agree 100000000%, it's not even up for debate for me! Mike has been an extremely busy man the last few years. It was definitely time for him to rest for a while. Rest in peace, Michael. You deserve it! :) :) We'll be here whenever you're ready to come back and make HIStory....in the meantime, we are all dedicated to keeping your mission and your legacy alive! :) :) What's up with Connie walking the streets in Santa Monica? You'd think as bad as he needs the money to pay for his defense, he'd be in Vegas shooting craps or in Houston seeing patients in his vacated abandoned office building. :P :roll: The man sure has a lot of leisure time on his hands and vacation clothes in his possession..... :) :) :)
Assumptions and misconceptions will lead you down a life of lies and misery. Sometimes a truth is misconstrued and damaged by the readers eyes who see the words but do not comprehend the meaning of the author's intent. Enforcement of truth will only suffice if the reader has the intelligence to question the motive and meaning of the words.
Bottom line – NO ONE really knows the truth...peace everyone!
Randy – get well and you are in my prayers.
RANDY KNOWS THAT HIS BROTHER DIED and speaks in his own voice with his own words!!! Listen to the interview he did with CNN! Lawsuits would not even begin to define the trouble they ALL would be in if this were a faked joke hoax!! Seriously??!! And Michael Jackson was not a liar, cheat, fake, joke, manipulating deceiver...maybe in your delusional evil world but not in the real world!!!
To the people who support justice Michael Jackson...light a candle in his honor on June 25...we will be his voice...and
WE WILL ALWAYS BE THERE!!! :)
Jessie from Auckland, NZ- you are very welcome.
Maria C- no need to explain yourself.
Stay Strong and Positive. Celebrate the Message!!!!!!!!
Maria.C.Thank You, for sharing with me what you have in your heart.I truly appreciate that.I still question myself why I keep coming her. The only answer I to have is the Love for Michael.I have always believed in him, as far back as when he was with The Jackson Five.Through his solo career,I watched a man bring the most incredible music and dance to entertain this world.I Do not know Michael personally,but i know in my heart he is a good man.I will always believe in him.Maria I am still holding your hand, I shall be here for you.we will stand side by side.(Smiles) from the heart.
helen,hmmm,Thriller 2.This Is It.Very very interesting. (Smiles) to you
@Marguerite....Totally random, but just this morning I received an email from Kraken Opus.....they think that the Michael Jackson Opus is the perfect Father's day gift for dear old dad....I thought it was really kind of an odd coincidence since we were just speaking about your troubles in receiving your copy of the Opus. The email included links to the website for information and ordering....but some of the information appears outdated. I think this is the first email regarding the MJ Opus that I have received from them since January. Still no word on the interactive piece. Hmmm
doubtingthomas2010,Strong and Positive as always.(Smiles) to you
Doubting Thomas,How are you ? I read your message loud and clear ,and many thanks ! I am so encouraged when I read comments that are ; thoughtful ,Kind ,hopeful....I am sorry when some feel ,the way they do .At ,least there is ameasure oe PEACE,HERE .And as always I will continue to hold my 'torch ' high and to keep it lit ,for Justice ,for all who have suffered needlessly .Love /hugs Maria C.
truth4mj-stay strong and positive. Celebrate the message!!!!!
The truth will come out. As long as you try to keep yourself away from that, is shouldn't bother you.
Celebrate the message!!!!!
Good day everyone.
It is a beautiful day here with no rain, at least for a couple days...... I hope all are having a wonderful day.
@Letta hope you are having a better day today
@Mary Jane we will connect at some point lol take care
"Life is not measured by the breaths we take, but by the moments that take our breath away.'
May we all have many of these moments.
lol It doesn't bother me. To each his own. That's what makes the world go round! I'm focused only on The Man, his message, his genius, and the show! :) :) I love you, Michael Jackson! :P
Mary Jane – In all honesty, it wasn't an event in my life that made me change my opinion. It truly (and sadly) was Michael's death and the subsequent media coverage – mainly the excerpts of the They Don't Care About Us rehearsal. Ugh, it makes my stomach turn. But how ironic is it that the media did something positive in that sense? However, I will only give it credit for sparking my interest – the rest was research. And youtube. I will say that I wasn't a Michael Jackson hater before – but the bubble that I lived in before was really more like a bomb shelter, apparently. Just oblivious/ignorant. Although, I am a little young to have been exposed to everything MJ back in the 80s/90s...no excuse, though, I suppose! Just living with the regret kinda sucks. Thanks so much for the support and replying. :)
doubtingthomas, Pixie Dust, Letta – thanks for the support, as well!
We're sendin' out
A major love
And this is our
Message to you
All the little gullible cris worshipers will eat that up...
MJ will be "remebered" as the greatest! I "was" blessed and honored to be able to sit in the same room with todays insperation for pop music! Thursday, June 25, 2009 6:46:05 PM via UberTwitter
Check out the dates of the tweets...the DAY Michael died...I know Akon along with millions wanted Michael to live.
MJ will be 'REMEMBERED"...I 'WAS' blessed to have worked with Michael...cris, you are just another player looking for attention...sad really.
I have asked this before and this will be the last time I ask.
Please stop calling bloggers names, i.e., synapsis not firing, delusional, disturbed, sick, ignorant, etc.
You have made it quite clear what you believe and nobody calls you names, so stop with the HATE and NAME CALLING.
thank you in advance
These blogs support Michal and not pats on the backs for sermons and self absorbed preaching. And to those who ASSume I am posting to them know that I post what is in my heart, and that is TRUTH!!!
I could chose to live in a fantasy world of delusions and become a stepford blogger but I have a mind and it understands TRUTH!! Randy is speaking in HIS OWN WORDS to the truth...and that truth is not media speculation, but a grieving brother speaking his own words of TRUTH!
And contributing to the truth are the FACTS: The DA, LAPD, Coroners ofiice, Tom Mesereau, C. Thompson, Aphrodite, Michael's family, etc. ALL know that Michael died June 25, 2009.
So sing kum-by-ya all the way to 'there' and smile amongst yourselves because Michael is with God!!!
I have no hate whatsoever so I smile at that comment!!
But it is so very hateful to make such mean remarks directly to me when I have not directed anything to anyone. That is not LOVE...kum-ba-ya!!!!
Oh, and if I want to post to someone I will address my posts...otherwise assume what you will.
Will you light a candle for Michael on June 25??
It will bring some peace to what will be a very sad day.
come on believers hold on tight
we know the truth keep that in sight
its time to take each others hand
an army of love noone can disband
we will keep the faith and never break
our belief in michael they can never take
we have opened our eyes we look to the light
and this time around we will get things right
we have heard his message loud and clear
and now its time for some to fear
its all for love and we are true
so michael we are here for you
you dont have to ask no more
you have our love you can be sure
please scroll up and read letta beLIEve's posts.They speak so much truths,Thank you letta,you are truly appreciated and you are such a kind soul.Sending you hugs,smiles and many days filled with sunshine.
True-To-You,great post once again and yes you speak truths.(Smile)
ooops!! cris, sorry!! I said you didn't fool anyone ... well, my mistake ... you did fool a few ...
Carie Girl! You're on a roll today!!!!!!!! Don't bother with the bloggy "Preachers" .... not even worth responding to.
Gotta get back to work. Will I light a candle on the 25th? You betcha!! Talk soon.
I found this in mjsightings very interesting it talks about the "truth"
"i am alive and here forever "
i am a close friend of michael jacksons eldest sons girlfriend i talk to her everyday she always has told me to belive her that michael is alive she says she speaks to him everyday so i told her i would also like to see for myself if she just lost her mind or is telling the truth i cant say the name of the hospital and what exactly happened on the 14th of april last month but i met him he is extreamly sick fighting his trmendous drug addition had a seizure 2 to 3 weeks back and was just released from the hospital on wednesday he is suffering from a disease called epilipsey which causes continous seizures of any kind .....i am not in a position to reveal any more info . but i'd like to end this message by saying all of you are doing a GREAT job please michael jackson would like more fans to find out the truth and with love in m y heart please do belive me because i see him everyday and my heart is broken that his fans still cry and go through so much pain although he is alive.
love your friend mel.....
Lois 48,Nice to see you again! I enjoyed your posts ,and like you i hope we can stay 'positive'.Love Maria C.
I was reading tweets from Jodi Gomes ,and she said she heard Randy is resting , so let's hope he gets all the T.L.C. he needs ! I know he will be fine,look at all the people who Love that Family, and look at home that Family ....Loves! Love Maria C.
Lois 48 ,Thank you ,for All you said! Love to you Maria C.
It definetely makes sense as to why the trials are delayed, why the jacksons are sad and why he is in hiding. The comeback was meant to be june but he's not well enough and wasnt well enough to do the concerts thus, my friends janets tweet. I think i broke the Da Vinci Code.
@Not Invincible (IYKWIM)
You can see Michael’s pain in that song (They Don't Care About Us) an excerpt of some of the words that really stood out for me.
Beat me, hate me …You can never break me
Will me, thrill me….You can never kill me
Jew me, sue me…Everybody do me
Kick me, kike me…Don't you black or white me
Tell me what has become of my life
I have a wife and two children who love me
I am the victim of police brutality, now
I'm tired of bein' the victim of hate
You're rippin' me of my pride…Oh, for God's sake
I look to heaven to fulfill its prophecy...Set me free
Tell me what has become of my rights
Am I invisible because you ignore me?
Your proclamation promised me free liberty, now
I'm tired of bein' the victim of shame
They're throwing me in a class with a bad name
I can't believe this is the land from which I came
Yes, Michael was a true victim of the media, police, law and all those around him who wanted to make money off of him. They all took advantage of his “big heart” and kindness. It is quite obvious to me that you have a “huge heart” and rather critical of yourself… by this statement: (but the bubble that I lived in before was really more like a bomb shelter, apparently. Just oblivious/ignorant) I only hope you become gentle with yourself too. Regretting is a “catch 22” as we cannot go back and change it. I must tell you, I am blown away by your honesty and very delighted you have decided to post here on the MJ site. I hope you continue to do so. I hope I did not embarrass you with this post as that was not my intent. I just wanted to express what I am feeling from reading your post. Thank you for your candor! (( Big Hug ))
@mariam – thank you, very informative and it explains alot.
Prayers for you "sweet Michael" get well soon, we will be waiting !!!
Your family is protecting you now, love WILL conquer all
Mariam ,Hello ,and I enjoyed your thoughts ...Love Maria C.
cris June 17th, 2010 11:57 am ET
Сris thank you ;)
Jun 25th – 777 !!!
I WILL BE THERE!!! :)
Don't you think it makes sense though. He may be very sick and thats why the family is so sad. He may be in rehab almost died but saved. It is the right of the family to keep it private until he gets better.
When you open your "heart" your mind will "follow"
As Michael said "anything is possible"
@ Not Invincible (IYKWIM)
Thank you for sharing your "coming around" story about MJ. I hope you are indicative of many others out there. Perhaps there are some haters who will never ever allow themselves to know the truth about MJ. However, if those who did not have an opinion of him are open to learning about him now – it gives me hope for his legacy. I grew up with MJ so I have watched him and loved him his whole career. So glad he was here in my lifetime. Thanks again for sharing and PEACE to you.
@All, 'Listen to your Heart .....IT will show you the right way .Then You can understand what THIS IS all about.' As Janet Jackson sings ..'Nothing Should come Between Us'.
cris ,I tnever hurts to Look at all the possibilities in Life ,and cris you are Loved ,you bring some fun to us ,and you are ....well cris afterall! Love Maria C
Sorry for my typos @3;29 I meant to type 'look at HOW ......' Love to All here ,come on lets be the cure not the didsease! Love Maria C.
God Bless You Randy!
I L.O.V.E. YOU MICHAEL.
I WILL BE THERE!
I hope that he feels better. Don't let your late brother get the best of you. Thanks for helping the fans give a proper tribute.
I believe much trouble would be saved if we opened our hearts more.
May you all have a wonderful afternoon,stay strong and positive.Remember smiles are sunshine scatter them.I will catch up later this evening on the bloggy, happy blogging Sending (Smiles) to all.
Randy i hope you get well soon!!!love to you!!!
i just finished scool exams and now i am free for summer!!!
i promise i will come here all the time!!!!!i love you!!!!!!!!
I WILL BE THERE!!!MICHAEL IS ALIVE!!! LOVE
@mariam that sighting story is made up...
The world is indeed a mixture of truth and make-believe. Discard the make-believe and take the truth.
I am not upset in the least...quite the contrary, I am delightful as I could not possibly take anything on these blogs personally, unlike many here who obviously have deep saturated hate that is easily brought to the surface with just a comment not even addressed to them...superficial love!! Wink-wink!! They can use a mommy hug!!! These blogs never upset me. :)
The only thing upsetting to me is Katherine's face in the photo on the previous blog...that is heartbreaking to see such pain. Your thought on that photo??
If Michael were still alive and wanted to 'augment reality' with film, I believe he would do that without the need to fake his death. Michael expressed a desire to get into film, but not by faking his death. And no one, even MJ, could get all those gov. agencies (FBI, DA, LAPD, Coroner, Attny. Gen., Cal. Med. Brd.) to go along with such a stunt. And death by propofol? Michael would never fake his death by drug od especially propofol. And he certainly would not leave his children behind, nor would he expect them to lie. Do I wish he were still alive...absolutely, but that is not reality. It has been a Sony/AEG production, but only due to Michael's death. TII was all Sony/AEG...and I am sure there will be a TII-2 coming to theaters near you!
Would I be angry if he faked all this? Yes, because he would have manipulated and lied to his fans, had his children lie, created depression in some fans that led to suicides, and he would not be the MJ that I admire and love. That is not Michael Jackson.
Michael died and that is reality.
Now, why did you ask this question? What's the game??
Timeless asked a similar ? once...
And I can see I did not win blogger of the day!!! Oh, well!!!
I swear we are cosmic twins!!
We know just when to come speak TRUTH!!
You and me...together...we have the TRUTH!!!!
I am so glad you have my back sis!!!!!
LOVE YOU MY SUZIE Q!!!!!!!!!!
A voice for Michael!!!!
There are now over 2 million, again, 2 MILLION people all over the world that believe Michael Jackson is still alive.
Are there all "delusional" or perhaps very "open minded"
Nobody knows for sure, so judging others and making fun of what they believe is definitely not the way to go !!!!!!!!!!
Peace, Love, Respect that's the way to go
Agreed! It's all about his message and his mission "We're all here because of him. May that continue with him leading the way." :)
Mariam, You are so sweet and caring I can tell! The simple truth here is ,None of us seem to really know what happened ,last June and why . As for me ,I have seen way too many things that simply do not add up.And I do have faith in due time,we may be priveleged to know , what actually happened.My curiosity began ,as I watced the 'news' last summer.Somethings just were not right or let's say didnt feel right to me.Far too many things to even begin to dive into on here .So I will say ,try to be patient as you have been ,and continue to do your part every day ,to show Love to all people ,'This TOO ...Is It'! Love Maria C.
Purlpe Haze ...Your comments are profound , thank you .Love Maria C.
'Pixie Dust ' I am here and some things are just , better left unsaid !LOL. see you soon! Love Maria C.
Susan, thank you for the info on AEG! I wonder, why would Murray order such equipment in the first place? Was AEG stalling? I don't know what to think anymore. This confusing case gets more confusing by the minute. I am more confused a year later than I was a month later .... I'm sure I'll be more confused this time next year than I am now .... :)
Thanks for all the excellent research you're doing. Please keep us in the loop!
Hey Pixie- I'm here, my posts got deleted though.
Stay Strong and Positive. Celebrate the message!!!!!!
When people put "spotlights" on others here with their remarks its because clearly there is something within themselves they have a problem with. I don't have anything to prove to anyone here and neither do you. To Randy, I hope you are feeling better and continue to spread the message that you and your family have been blessed to do.
Of course, we know why Murray ordered the equipment. What I meant to say is that his request should have raised questions with AEG...
Carie, on the 25th, I'll be here ... with my candle.
Sweet dreams love!
Maria C, I am glad you are here and of course somethings are better left unsaid.Right you are.(Smiles).
doubtingthomas2010, what a relief,I am so glad you are here.Of course strong and positive as always, (Smiles) to you.
Purple Haze,stunning quotes.I love them (Smiles) to you.
Marguerite,I hope you are here as well and had a great day.(Smiles) to you.
Randy's MESSAGE...'be Michael's voice...the voice he no longer has.'
We are Michael's voice!!!
We will ALWAYS be there!!!
We have the truth!!
June 25...I will light my black orchid candle for the 1st time.
My mom will be in LA...she will light a candle too.
You have my back sis, and I have yours!!!
Love you my Suzie Q!!!
Rest in peace sweet Michael.
Dance with God and smile.
I don't know where joe got that information that AEG did not provide that equipement for murray, but if it is true, it's a huge deal. because it's not only wierd that he would request something like, but also it's more strange that they did not question it. it sounds like everybody expected michael to have a heart failure and it finaly happened.
I will light a candle for michael on june 25th, and I will listen to his music and watch him on my computer. it will be a very sad day.
So the Kangaroo Court has filed its judgment – Michael, the King of Pop is dead...
but judiciously we know the Man in the Mirror is alive!!! :)
butterfly ,I enjoyed your comment@11;38 p.m. Nice to see you ,Love Maria C.
Mr.Anonymous,I hope all is well with you ,and your day was full,and sunny .It is time for my evening tea,how about you? Smile....Until we see you here again ...good night ,and I hope that 'marshmallow ' pillow is waitng for you ! Love and abundant hugs ,Maria C.
a year has passed and michael has not jumped out of the cake! He better jump out or the cake might go bad!
Marguerite, hoping all is well with you,I miss your humor.(Smiles) to you.
Night all,may you all have sweet dreams.(Smiles) to all.
Carie thank you for your sincere answer :) And no game, just a question because I've been curious about that for long time now and who better to ask than a very loving and dedicated fan named Carie the Disco Queen! lol!! Blessings and Peace to you.
cris– Carie is the Disco Queen? cris you are the same age as I am and to have been a real Disco Queen a person has to be either around our age or older than us.lmao
Why didn't Murray just request a board certified Anesthesiologist or a Nurse Anesthesiologist as long as he was making requests....
Still hoping for some answers that make some sort of sense...
Hello big sis :) :) I'm doing well. I hope you have been doing great. Sending plenty of love hugs and blessings
How are you cris? I hope you've been doing well lately. Nice to see you. Love hugs and blessings
@ Mr. A
I hope you have been doing wonderfully and are resting well. I miss you...but I always do. Lots of love and hugs. God bless you dear one

@shellie Hey gurly
@beLIEvers Keep the Faith
I extend my hand with love,
to show you I am always there,
No need to feel alone,
I promise I will always care,
A gift that you are,
to the world with love,
A precious little gem,
a treasure given from above,
A heart so precious,
lined with gold of the best,
A angel you are,
thank you...I was blessed!
Bless You Always~
Good Morning or Noon where it may fall in for you.
There is no garden so complete, but roses make the place more sweet. There is no life so rich and rare, but one more friend can enter there. (H.H.R.)
Three grand essentials to Happiness in this life are something to do, something to love, and something to hope for. J.S.
@Here is a little something I like to share.
Just to be tender, just to be true, just to be glad the whole day through, just to be cheery when things go wrong, just to drive sadness away with a song, just to let love be our daily key, that is God's will for you and me.
The place to be happy is here. The time is to be happy is now.
The way to be happy is to help make others happy.
Let’s not forget the most important thought.
Words may tear our lives apart and bring us stormy weather, but a compliment tucked in the heart can heal it back together.
The Golden rule of friendship is to listen to others as you would have them listen to listen to you.
With that said I pray that all have a wonderful day, be nice to one another, lean a hand or an eye that someone may need your help. It is always nice to be nice, you never know if you would need that same person one day to listen to you or lean and. Good Day
If you're not big enough to lose, you're not big enough to win.
Carie, don't believe everything you hear. You're NOT the Disco Queen. It's not enough to be a fan of "Off the Wall" and the Bee Gees to be crowned Disco Queen. You have to be a Boney M fan, and as long as you aren't, you don't deserve the title. LOL!
Ok, off to work. Tonight, I'll be singing:
Tonight, gotta leave that nine to five upon the shelf
And just enjoy myself ...
I'm going away this weekend, so wanna wish you a great one in advance. Stay strong, for you and for me and the entire human race ...
a fountain of truth i am sending in
overflowing with songs from our king
unbreakable believers will remain
got to be there for michael is our aim
in the closet we will not hide our love
it is invincible like our angel with the glove
and those who wanna be starting something and trash the man
believers will come together and put them in a jam
its dangerous to make him sad
we have had enough and we will get bad
cos tabloid junkies make us scream
they should keep the faith and join our team
cos whatever happens we dont walk away
we just cant stop loving michael more each day
our cry to him is we will be there
you rock our world and we do care
I will be off this weekend as well!!
And Boney M is a genre all its own!!!
So don't point your finger
I will burn that disco out!
So come on dance on the floor in the round
and leave that nine to five upon the shelf pty!
The planets are lining up and we've bringing brighter days...
cause this is thriller, thriller night!
There aint no second chance
against the thing with the forty eyes girl
and they don't really care about us!
but you are always in my heart!!!!!!!!!
Have a great weekend my Suzie Q!!!!!
We're taking over
We have the TRUTH!!!
RIP Sweet Michael.
Dance with God.
You are welcome...from the disco queen!! :)
RIP Jose Saramago! A very sad day for the literature and the world! I will miss you!
My mom has been in Vegas and will be in LA next weekend.
She will be celebrating all that Michael gave to this often times cruel world.
I take comfort in knowing you and Suzie will be with me on June 25. lighting our candles in memory of our beautiful Michael, gone too soon.
Be well Elly!!! Love to you!!
And a cake fight will have to wait until next year!! LOL!
Many good sayings are to be found in holy books, but merely reading them will not make one religious.

Purlpe Haze ,@ 8;48 a.m. You are right ,it is the Application ,of wht one reads ,this is where wisdom comes in! We need it ,dont we? I enjoy your comments ,thank you ...Love Maria C.
This Is it! Thank you for a new poem ,a beauty too,what would we do without you? Take care ,Love Maria C.
once again lets take that flight
magic carpet hold on tight
close your eyes and count to ten
we are back amongst the stars again
now only two will take the stage
this is a very special page
as all the planets gather around
waiting for that special sound
as pluto asks the moon to dance
and the moon says yes i will take that chance
for pluto may hold the key
to many unfolding a mysterie
focusing power its loud and clear
intuition and insight i have no fear
could capricorn be involved
eclipsing a story thats still being told

Timeless ,I enjpyed all your posts from the other day ,it was very hard to visit here ,during that time.But we made it through ,didnt WE?
In fact seeing you ,here andsome others ,I felt like I could 'Mount up like and eagle ' ..and fly again.
I drew my strength form recalling some of the horrendous things Michael has endured,and how he just kept on going like the 'energizer Bunny ' .I am convinced he prayed a lot ,as he shared this was where he got his strength from,A wonderful radio interview with Jesse Jackson ,and Geraldo he made this very clear .
And so i close by thanking you ,for keeoing your wits ,about you ,and setting a fine example on here.Yes you are still a 'gem ' .Love Maria C.

Good Afternoon my friend. Glad to see that you enjoying my posts, I read your comment on the previous blog. I like to say yes I drink my o.j today(smiles)plus my hazelnut coffee also too. Need, something to keep me alert since school has started back for me again. it is hard to get my brains in motion for sociology again, so I need a push in that direction again. Thank you for always supporting my post it's people like you, pixie dust and angie pie that gives me the strength to continue to share my daily word, that keeps me on the right side of the fence. Love it just like I love the King of pop Michael. Thank you more Maria for being you, Loves, Hugs, and much Blessings for you. Letta
Hi Girl. Love your post. Keep them coming. Love you. Letta
I have noticed mary u from ohio hasn't been blogging much,I hope all is well with her.She is such fun and a kind person to.Actually i have noticed a few that haven't blogged too much lately,Hope they are all fine.Sending smiles to them all.
Mary-Jane – You didn't embarrass me, haha. You're so sweet!
dianeinmpls – I agree, but I definitely don't think I'm the only one who has "made that change"...at least I hope not. It's not like it's hard, it's just called having an open mind!
Larry when are you going to have charles thomson on your show??
@ "Pixie Dust "
Mary U Ohio will be back soon.
Everything is well with her.
LOVE & BLESSINGS
have you seen one of these comments below charles article:
Jack Strieber 37 minutes ago (10:29 AM)
@ Gavin Saunders
Diane Dimond knows no DNA was found anywhere in Neverland to connect Jackson with Gavin Arviso, or any for that child for that matter. The woman's ability to reconstruct history and fact is a matter of record.
As a working journalist, I can reliably tell you none of us are unaware of the substantial leaps she took in relation to this case. In fact, to call Dimond a journalist is a misnomer.
If the object of one's work is to leave something behind that others remember, I can assure you Dimond's portfolio will be remembered as wholly compromised and without merit.
It doesn't really get any clearer than that.
I would like to see that witch on LKL and see how she trys to defend her behavior / mistreatment toward Michael Jackson.
Larry must be prepared to confront her with the FACTS, better yet, have her and Charles Thomson on together and let Charles confront her. Now that would be an awesome SHOW !!!!!
larry you are getting some requests
for your show two special guests
an angel of truth who will shine the light
and the devils wife i think i am right
how about it larry your ratings would rise
truth and justice defeating evil and lies
edge of the seat stuff this would be
exposing the evil for all to see
to see her squirm would be such fun
but be careful larry she has a forked tongue
the angel of truth is fearless and brave i can tell
he would send the devils wife straight back down to hell
so come on larry you are the host
let truth and justice be the boast
i believe i will be there its all for love love is free
@letta(IbeLIEve) June 18th, 2010 6:12 am ET
Awe, so sweet are you, always posting wonderful things to light up this site. You are like a ray of sunshine each and every morning! I hope you are feeling better today! Warm (( Hugs )) to you....
I totally agree with you!
get william wagener on with tom sneddon aswell.
Akon knows the truth :) Keep that friday feeling going hun
Mike has it all under control.We just have to sit back and watch the master at work and what a pleasure it is im so Glad im not a tabloid robot.......................Eating there fodder
MJ YOU ROCK MY SOCKS QIRBTL
MICHAEL YOU ROCK ......;)
I am delighted that I did not embarrass you. I would never want to embarrass anyone. I became worried that I might have; after I posted the comment. While it was waiting moderation I re-read what I had posted to you, and thought, I should not say so much. I guess I was just ‘awe struck’ at your honesty. Thank you for your kindness….
Excellent article. Thank you. Yes, the media were like sharks circling Michael trying to take a 'bite' out of him every chance they had....... They were filled with bias and distortion....
@ elly June 18th, 2010 12:17 am ET
That was a funny post. I started to laugh. You have a wonderful sense of humor.
@Larry- could you please have Charles Thompson and William Wagener on your show??? What about Geraldine Hughes??? Come on Larry.
helen ,thanks for sharing the video( Akon's interveiw) (Smiles) to you.
@jan – I hope Larry listens to the requests, but who knows ?
Charles would definitely come on, but Diane "Demon" probably not.
People like her, full of arrogance & self-righteouness usually fall apart when actually confronted.
@ Jan –
Great comment from the Huff Post. Dimond's popularity is definitely fading. I believe she was fired by Court TV and Hard Copy. Also note that her TV Tabloid peer – Nancy Grace doesn't have her on as a guest and neither do the networks. I wrote to her last year and asked her if she would consider a public debate with Aphrodite Jones about the "facts" and she declined. Said that "MJ is a very emotional topic and I have a lot more history covering him than Aphrodite Jones does." As if and emotionally charged topic and number of years reporting somehow make her "facts" the truth. I think her popularity and income are probably cut in half by now.
Curious Cat & Diane in Minneapolis- I contacted her as well. The first time she responded sending me an article she had written. When I wrote her back to answer me with her own words, all she wrote was "whatever." If Larry is ever to put her on, with Charles Thompson, Geraldine Hughes, William Wagener, Aphrodite Jones or better yet a Jackson- I don't think she would show up.
It would be great to see DD "crucified" will all the intensity and more, that MJ suffered at the hands of that witch.
But alas................................."cowards" like her never allow themselves to be questioned.
william wagener has uploaded some new videos.
Michael Jackson Estate, AEG Pays for Memorial
Originally posted Jun 18th 2010 11:33 AM PDT by TMZ Staff
Michael Jackson's estate and AEG have agreed to pay the City of Los Angeles $1 million to cover the cost of the MJ memorial last year.
In addition the estate and AEG will pay $300,00 for crime fighting equipment, as a make-good for the memorial expenses.
City officials determined $1.3 mil will cover the costs of police services, permits, Sanitation Department and Transportation Department expenses incurred for the memorial.
Considering all the $$$ they have made of his death, AEG should pay the bill for MIchael's memorial.
We are off on an adventure...a BIG adventure!
Packing for a baby...ugh!!
Have a wonderful weekend!!
We have the TRUTH!!!
Same to you love!!
Hope to 'see' you again soon!!
Dance with God sweet Michael.
Come on Larry- have these people on your show!!!!!!
TMZ says AEG is stumping up a million for MJ memorial last year.
Thank you for keeping us informed. It is very kind of you to do this for us.
you are welcome!
If you use your mind to study reality, you won't understand either your mind or reality. If you study reality without using your mind, you'll understand both.
its time for some magic in this place
for those who believe and keep the faith
the second star to the right and straight on till morning
we are off to neverland lets have some fun the truth is finally dawning
we will pause for a while at mermaids lagoon
to hear them sing underneath a magical moon
we can fly in to a pirates cave
or maybe be an indian brave
dont you believe that you can fly
just think of happy things and give it a try
and if in peter you have faith and trust
he will sprinkle you with some of that magic dust
its a great adventure with every emotion
and who would believe there is a magic milk potion
and captain hook made a promise to smee
i would never lay a finger on peter not me
and when hook makes a promise he says it wont break
so is hook for real or is he a fake
i believe peter pan can never die you see
a mischievous boy he will always be
and thats whats so magical about peter you know
he knows how to play and put on a good show
so just follow the shadow and peter you will find
i believe the shadow and peter are one of a kind
@jan – the costs will be paid by AEG and the MJ ESTATE
The summer breeze blows by,
as I walk on the shore,
The gentle waves roll in,
its picture perfect to adore,
The glistening sand is warm,
and so velvety to touch,
The lovely smell of the salt air,
a scent I love so much,
A beautiful peacfulness is felt,
with every step that I take,
Footprints in the sand,
a memory for keepsakes!
Bless You All~
Helen!! :D :D
GURLIEEE, thanks for posting that recent Akon radio interview, in which he acknowledges that he believes Michael is still alive! lol. :D I think it pretty much trumps what he stated in his tweets a year ago. Besides, didn't you notice the time of his tweets when he said Michael had not passed and to pray for him....after 7 P.M. on June 25th? If Akon was in the United States at the time he tweeted this stuff, Michael had already "passed" several hours before that. lol. I beLIEve we ARE now witnessing the innovative movie project which Michael spoke of to Geraldo a few years ago. This is the project that is indeed gonna take the entertainment medium to the next level! What an understatement, huh?? And Michael, being the genuinely compassionate soul that he is, found a way to give profound meaning and purpose to it by bringing a much brighter awareness of so many (alarming) things occurring in the world today, encouraging us to follow his example of making important changes for ourselves and our Planet Earth. He also has been given the opportunity to escape and rest from that fast-paced life of chaos in which he had been trapped for sooooooo long, giving his children a taste of a much more normal life at the same time! Of course, just think about how many terrible people are being exposed and, hopefully, brought to justice for their crimes against humanity....tabloid journalists, doctors, cops, etc....the very people who abused him and mutilated his good name and reputation. This whole venture is SO INCREDIBLY MULTI-DIMENSIONAL, only a stellar genius like him could pull it all off with unprecedented success. It's no wonder that so many people simply cannot process or comprehend any of this. Michael Jackson really didn't fake his death. HE CREATED THE ILLUSION OF HIS DEATH! WOW!! Can't wait to see how this great adventure ends!! Barnum, Einstein, Copperfield, EAT your hearts out, Dudes! lol. :D :D Love to you, Helen!! Have a beautiful weekend! oxoxoxox
Rhonda, Letta, Neighbor Maria,
Thank you for inspiring my days with your thoughtful, positive posts! I really appreciate what you all contribute to this blog! It is so much better for the health of all of us to read uplifting comments as opposed to the nasty stuff! God Bless you! oxoxoxox :D :D
Get better Randy you are in Our Prayers You and Your Family Stay strong
We will always Love and have MJ in our hearts forever
On you tube listen to Henry Gorman's song "Billie Jean is Waiting" – beautiful and very touching.
Hello there girl... I just have to say that I truly love your posts as well. All I can say is that this has been an amazing journey from day one. Keep up the good work.
Hello, long time no talk. Hope all is well with you. Glad to see that you are posting here. Love & Hugs & Blessings. Letta
Hi, you are more then welcome my friend. I enjoy reading what you have to say, and it keeps it interesting. You and Helen, has great comments and please keep it coming. I Look forward to reading your post. You are truly are a beautiful person. Love, Hugs & Blessings to you. Letta
Hello, hope that you are doing well. I thought we would see a post from you I assume that you are very busy at this time. Hope that you are not over working yourself, and getting of rest that you need. Just thunking about you, because of your lack of sleep. Hope, to talk soon. Hugs & Love, Lot's of Blessings Letta
Shelli! It is so good to see you my 'neighbor'! When are we going to meet ,and enjoy some tea together? LOL....one day for sure!
Shell i ,I feel when we hear the news ,when we watch the news,when we read the news of the day ,we feel overwhelmed,at least I do .So when I visit here ,at this very special 'place' ,I like to be positive ,uplifting ,and kind.Sometimes I get hurt at what is said ,as we all do ,esp when cruel remarks ,are made about Michael ,and his family. The 'world ' out there will eat you up...and 'spit' you back out! Why look at how Shirley Temple was treated ,as she grew into a young lady ! No wonder why Michael loves her ,she worked very very hard ,and where was her 'childhood'? I mention this because no one should be mistreated ,famous or not.And admittedly I write too much ,but I do try to write ,so others will feel cared for and appreciated ,as You All here have made me feel!
Shelli ,it has been almost a year ,and havent we learned so much ? You have anice weekend ,Love/Hugs Maria C. Thank you for being nice to me!
This Is It ! What a beautiful poem ,Thank you! Love Maria C.
Jan ,thanks so much for the updates,Mr Wagener should be on every News outlet! He is straight up ,and I appreciate all he is doing ,Looking forward to seeing more from him! Justice indeed for Michael.Love Maria C.
Diane in minn,wow ,This Diane D. has not told the truth about Michael,and may have contributed to the negativity ,we even see here at times! Michael shoudnt be the one missing sleep ,some feel they should be missing their sleep after all ,they do it all for Money ,as Michael,song says 'Anything For money ,' and it seems to be true ! sad but true ...I t needs to stop ! You have been missed nice to see you back! Love Maria C.
Evening all,hoping everyone enjoyed their day blogging, the sunshine or what ever the day brought to them.(Smiles) to all.
Marguerite,hope you had another one of those fantastic days,(Smiles) to you.
Pixie Dust- My day is always fantastic.lol
Good night all,sweet dreams Sending (smiles) your way.
Not long to go now.
I can't believe it has almost been a year.
How time fly's.
I will be there when the world stops to appreciate the sacrifice of an inspirational human being.
Although I am sure there will be those that will have negative things to say once more, but we just have to rise above.
Keep the faith xxx
Hi to all I have met and spoken to in the last 12 months. I could have never imagined this happening, but from a seemingly bad situation I have met some great people and again it was Michael who brought us all together. Believer or not we were brought together for a reason.
I hope everyone has a great day full of happiness, love to you all xxxx.
@ Letta –
I wish to thank you for all those uplifting words that helps me start the day. I can see it has also brightens others too. Keep up the beautiful work you do. Words can be powerful.
For a moment I thought this blog was becoming a sequel to another previous blog that needs an exorcism. Your posts makes a positive mark on the blogs which has its share of hate. Your post is like a Light shining thru the Dark. Take care, chat with you later.
@ Mr A –
Where ever you are, I hope you have a great joyous weekend. I hope to see you soon. As you can see here on the blog there are others missing you. Your pretty busy person and that is understandable that there will be days you can't be online. However, should you ever get those sleepless nights, just come right on over even if it means a few minutes. Please take care.
My prayers will be with Randy.
@ Doubting Thomas, do you know what type of Memorial they will have at Forest Lawn? Will it be televised?
One of the most tragic things I know is that all of us trend to put off living. We dream of some magical garden over the horizon instead of enjoying the roses that are blooming outside our window today. L. C.

June 17th, 2010 3:28 pm ET read full content above.
I found this in mjsightings very interesting it talks about the "truth"
This comment was so outrageous that I went to their website to research where this "truth?" was coming from.
This is part of the response the website emailed to this little girl:
Michael Jackson Sightings Wed, June 9, 2010 11:27:19 AM
Is there any chance you could snap a picture of Michael and send it to us.
The little girl emails back to the website with this response:
well my dear friend i would very much like it if you would put this on the site ,michael is sitting next to me as i write this message so he has no objection ........
email received Wed, June 9, 2010 6:12:47 AM
Notice how this little girls spelling improves 100% in her second email compared to her first email and no photo was sent.
That website is open to all pranksters. Here's more examples:
MJHOAXEVIDENCE goes on in his video to tell us of a PRIVATE concert that went on April 14 at Neverland Ranch featuring Orianthi , Michael's guitarist in the "This Is It" movie.
A sighting of MJ is written about departing from LAX on June 25, 2009 with a photo attached. Unfortunately, the poster didn't realize the photo was of a person and child getting OFF, not on, an airplane with heavy coats in the middle of the HOT summer in Los Angeles. The same photo was used by another poster, on that same website, claiming their MJ sighting was in Florida.
There are many sadistic people around the world taking advantage of fans, so be cautious not to fall into their trap.
Susan ,Thank you , some would tend to feel theses things were legitimate ! So I totally agree with you,we need to be careful! I still believe the ambulance picture ...was not it! I agree with Mr. Oxman ...
Are you keeping cool in Vegas ? It is very nice there I just Loved it! LoveMaria C.
Maura ,are you an early riser lie me?(smile) I am up baking a fat Bluelerry pie ,for a local restaurant ,I have to bake early in the summer mths ,and I enjoy every minute of it ! I wished I could do something special for the Jackson family ,that would be such a privelge ,for me! I just Love them All,and Hope Randy is up and running! You too ,are part of why I have been here for almost a yr! Love and Hugs to you Maura ,Maria C.
mother nature please dont be blue
i have something to say to you
the oceans they are killing
with the oil still spilling
why cant they just stop it
think of love not the profit
i know you are crying
our planet is dying
corruption and greed
is why you still bleed
but what use is money
if bees cant make honey
no plants can grow
no love will sow
cos deep in the soil
its polluted with oil
control is what it seems to be
noone has control of me
for this world my heart is weeping
for the truth we should be seeking
oh mother nature i will love you
my voice my choice i will be true
Maura ,I am sorry for my typos! The word should be'Like' not lie,in the first sentence! wow.....Wht a difference one little letter can make! LOL...Maria C.
June 25th is approaching very fast........and it is hard to believe a year has almost gone already.
It has been a privilege coming to the blogs, which has enabled us from all corners of the globe, to come together and express our thoughts and love for MJ. We are all grateful for this opportunity to honour Michael in our own way.
May we continue to honour Michael and not forget his message of LOVE! etc........
Wishing all the fathers of the world, a wonderful and joyous day. For me a “father” is defined by the years of devotion, loving, support, nurturing a man is willing to give to his family. I deeply admire each and everyone of them. I applaud their courage and willingness to take the responsibility! From my heart.....Thank You
Happy Fathers Day to all the fathers out there.Have a great day.Sending many smiles your way.
Maria,thanks for sharing the quote with us all,it is wonderful, Have a wonderful day Maria,shall catch up later with all the blogs,Smiles from the heart.
Happy Father's Day to all the great fathers everywhere.
Happy Father's Day, to you too, Michael, wherever you are.
Your children are a living testimony to the wonderful job you have done as a father by your showing unconditional love, support and guidance to them. The result is clear to see as they have become caring, intelligent and beautiful children. You have done a great job with them Michael.
I can't emphasize enough how important a father's (or mother's) unconditional love, support and guidance is to a child. It lays a crucial foundation that will influence them throughout their lives.
Hi MJ fans,
Please go to TMZ website and read the article about Katherine and MJS kids being lonely. I want you to read the comments they are mean and appaling. Please support MJ by supporting his mother and repel bad comments with good comments. Its so mean I can't believe it.
HAPPY FATHER'S DAY to all the Fathers.
Candy thank you for the most insightful quote! And the link...profound isnt it? Love Maria C.
Jessie ,it has been a privelege to come here to share our thoughts ,and heartfelt pearls ......A year has almost gone ,and it is very hard to believe! One thing for sure I have been in awe ,by the constant flow of Love, and support for our Michael ,he is my brother ,and I will and have always Loved him,for him..and isnt that how each of us would like to be Loved?! Some have forgotten through,thick and thin,,fame /poverty ...Black /white ..we are allfrom the same human pair,and thus ,we truly are brothers and sisters ! Isnt this so beautiful...... ? Yes......it is ....Love Maria C.
Beverly Chicago .I enjoyed your beautiful comment ,thank you ! Love your sister ...Maria C.
Happy Father's Day to all the dads, uncles, grandpas, soldiers, role models, counselors, teachers, and positive influences out there! And lets not forget the mom's who take on both roles! Happy Father's Day :) !
Hello to all my friends on the blog! I miss you guys SO much! It's nice to see you're still around. I have to start visiting more often!
June 25th is approaching fast and the pain hasn't gotten any easier to bear..... :(
No, I'm definitely not a morning person Maria. lol Lately, I just wake up at odd hours. Hours that I never woke up at before. I've got odd sleep patterns. A lot of times I don't fall asleep until morning. Wow, you're
baking :) That sounds delicious! I enjoy making recipes at times. It can be fun! Yes, it would be an honor to do something for the Jackson family. I love them all too. They are a very special family.
I hope Randy is doing better now too. I'm worried about him. Awwww Maria you are one of the bright spots of visiting this blog. Thank you for being you. Sending plenty of love hugs and blessings.
P.S. No need to worry about the typos dear. I make plenty of them. lol
That was beatiful True and so very true poor Mother Earth ! Lets hope we all can try to do whatever we can in our own small way to help our world.
@beverly – Chicago

But anyway I pray that all is going good for you Maira, because you are the strength of this blog and we need you here to make thing much nicer here. You are a blessing to this blog my friend, Love & Hugs & blessings. Letta
Hi, hope all is well today with you and your family. Not sure if you are a Father or not, but if you are Happy Father's Day. Hope that it is all that you hope for on this day. Hope, that you will find time to come by, when you are not to busy either to chat or posts. Love , Hugs, & Blessings. Letta
@ Mariam.....Hi Mariam....TMZ always display the negative comments on their articles concerning Michael and his family. I think those are the only ones they post. They don't want us to read the positive ones.
Happy Father's Day to all the dads here on the blogs.
Letta, I am not overly sad,I have 'duleing' thoughts ,and it just gets me down ! Thank you for caring enough to comment to me,and offer some help.And Letta you have ! Your Love ,and genuine care for all here just shines through ,on the darkest days! .I appreciate ,you ! Thank you so much Letta...typo The word should read 'duelling ' sorry Letta!
Maura ,we are opposites! I Love mornings ,to me to wake up,and to begin a new day ......it's bliss! But I now some just are little nite owls ,my son ,and youngest daughter are the nite owls ! And we all balance one another ,it works! LOL....Stay sweet Maura ...we need some sweetness in our Lives ! Love Maria C.
Maraim ,thanks for the info,these sort of comments are just plain ignorance Mariam ,sometimes,we need to respond ,sometomes we need to pray ,that these individuals ,will come to learn the truth ! It is very upsetting ,I will have alook ,and see if there is something I can say . Love Maria C. Typo 'sometimes', sorry!
Mr Anonoymous ,I hope your day was a sunny one,and arelaxing one. There were such beautiful cloud foramtions, today some even looked like sleeping bears ...LOL..They are so fluffy and float by so peacefully .
Maybe you are enjoying your day with family ,and friends ,I hope your day was Blessed ....always . Love and some more hugs ,Maria C.
Everyone here seems to forget MJ is a man, not some idol to be worshipped on a pedestal. He wants to be treated just like everyone else. It sickens me how people here talk about him as if he is some God to be worshipped.
Pat Davis! How nice to see you back,I hope to read more comments from you! As we all know ,'Good' News' doesnt sell it is as if we as humans have been 'conditioned' to lean toward the negativity ,and we can miss out on the 'truth ' and positive things tend to be pushed into the background,like blurry vision! Not always ,but sometimes! Like you and so many others ,we look for the positives ,and the truths out here ! Pat ,I was remembering this last yr here on the blogs ,and one of my fun times was when the 'guys' on here had a little discussion on Jheri Curls ' and it was so funny ! I Love to laugh ,and that topic surely made me laugh! I miss so many of the ones who were here,I hope we can have sort of a one year reunion,and be here to support one another ,regardless of what we believe! Love to you Pat Maria C.
HI Letta...I had a good day for the most part. Just catching up on all the work I didn't get done yesterday because I went to a family member's wedding. I'm still not finished with all of it!
Thank you for replying to my post. I always enjoy reading everything that you have to say on the blog. You are such a positive, friendly and inspirational person.
Love and hugs to you, my friend!
"The Secret Lives of Michael Jackson's Children "
For all of their young lives, Michael Jackson has kept his three children cloistered, going so far as to hide their faces with masks and veils. This special takes an inside look into the lives of his three children since his death.
Jun 20, 9:00 pm on TLC
Jackson kids still struggling with grief
Last Update: 6:44 am
Paris Jackson (L) Prince Michael Jackson I (R) and Prince Michael Jackson II stand on stage at the Michael Jackson public memorial service held at Staples Center on July 7, 2009 in Los Angeles, California. (Mark Terrill, Getty Images)
Michael Jackson's children are still fighting a "daily battle to cope" following the superstar's death a year ago, according to his mother Katherine.
The Thriller hitmaker died on June 25 after suffering a cardiac arrest and Katherine was named guardian of his children, Prince, 13, Paris, 12, and eight-year-old Blanket.
She admits the kids are still mourning the loss as the first anniversary of their dad's death approaches – but she hopes plans for them to abandon home-schooling and attend an educational institute with other children will help them recover.
Katherine tells Britain's Sunday Mirror, "It has been a daily battle to cope with our huge loss... (The kids) don't have any friends. They don't go to school, they have private lessons at home – but that will change in September, when they are due to enroll at private (school).
"But they have their cousins and aunts and uncles around them constantly, and that's helped them immensely. To them, it's normal, it's the life they have known. They have a certain time to go to bed, then they get up and get dressed for lessons. They practice karate and swim, which they love."
And the 80-year-old reveals Jackson's only daughter Paris still has a shrine dedicated to her late father in her bedroom.
Katherine adds: "I wanted to hang pictures of flowers or ballerinas in Paris' room, the sort of things I expected a girl would like. But she went into a closet and she brought out seven or eight pictures of Michael and she told me, 'No, I want Daddy hanging in my room.' So she goes to bed looking at him and wakes up looking at him. She said, 'I always want to be able to see him.'
"Paris has that lovely way, just like him, and I see his talent in her. Whatever she does, she is very good at it. She's a good artist, she plays the piano and she wants to be an actress."
Michael died one year ago this Friday...he died and his children are really missing him especially today, Father's Day. My baby and her daddy celebrated their first FD, and I enjoyed time with my dad...it makes me feel sad for Prince, Paris and Blanket losing the only parent they have ever known. This was their first FD without their daddy. I hope they make lots of friends and live a happy life filled with cake and holidays and laughter!! Love to MJ3!!
We have the TRUTH!!!
Friday will be the end.
You and me...together...lighting a candle to remember Michael and reflect over this past year.
I am exhausted! Friends, family and love all weekend!
BC is sleeping on daddy's chest as he naps...life is so beautiful!!
I take so many pictures...I want to capture every moment!!
Hope your weekend was delightful as well!!
Love to you my Suzie Q!!
Bath and bed for me and BC!!
RIP Sweet Michael
Dancing with God.
Paris, Blanket and Prince are probably experiencing a bitter-sweet day with the loss of their father. I do wish them well
The Investigative Reporter Fails to Show Much Respect to the Late King of Pop
On tonight's 60 Minutes on CBS, investigative reporter Steve Kroft referred to Michael Jackson, and others like him, as 'working stiffs'.
Kroft's report centered on the amount of money that deceased stars' estates are making. Kroft interviewed an agent who represents primarily dead celebrities. In his report, Kroft pointed out that at the time of his
death, about a year ago, Michael Jackson was nearly $500 million in debt and his commercial outlook had dimmed.
Since Jackson's passing, his music has seemed to capture another generation of fans and his legacy has grown. As a result, the financial fortunes of his heirs and his estate has benefitted tremendously. Large corporations have again seen their way to 'have Michael's back'.
DisneyLand, in reopening of the Captain EO attraction after shuttering it for years, is a prime example of that. From an artistic point of view, Jackson has been honored as contemporary artists such as Lenny Kravitz have talked about working with Jackson and the influence he had on their lives and careers.
So while it would seem to be logical that a show such as 60 Minutes might report on the financial success of Jackson's estate after his passing, it surely will be off putting to many, to say the least, to hear about Michael Jackson referred to as a 'working stiff'.
60 Minutes and Kroft have long been perceived as class acts. The reporting on the show is tough and uncompromising, but it has always been done in a fashion that is fair and tasteful. But in tonight's episode, the reference to Michael Jackson as a 'working stiff' seems to be a misstep to say the least.
At some point, the media has to remember that dead celebrities have family, friends and fans who will mourn their deaths for a considerable amount of time. While the business aspect of all entertainers is certainly fair game to discuss and report upon, even after their deaths, the referencing of one of them as a 'working stiff' seems to be gratuitous at best.
WHEN WILL THE DISRESPECT EVER END!!!
Michael was a human being...God, ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
i am giving thanks to my father above
who created this world for us all to love
for giving me the beauty i see all around
the stars in he sky to the trees in the ground
the birds that sing and the dogs that bark
to the sound of laughter from children in the park
the sunrise in the morning the moon at night
for the wonder of nature so much to delight
for my family around me and friends that i find
they are the treasures that i keep in mind
and in my heart there is a treasure to
its the gift to love given by you

He was so funny! Wow, that was so long ago! One of my fondest memories is from Michael Jackson's Gold Pants! There were about 6-10 of us ladies that were in MJ-Heaven posting and watching Michael's Gold Pants videos all day! OMG he's SO sexy! It was a blast! I do miss those times....they were fun times. And I agree we should have a reunion on the 25th. Right here is where it all began so it would only be natural to reunite here with everyone. On the 25th. I Will Be There :) .

@ Mr A –
From your virtual friend to another. I hope we are able to converse; however I wish you contact me at the following address:
hill dot friendvirtual at g mail dot com
My reason for this is I wish to discuss with you regarding a safe environment for you to chat with me without being bothered by others who are irresponsible. I feel that is why you have not appeared for a long period of time. We can then chat in a much more control setting without being bothered.
See you my Virtual Friend =)
Good Monday Morning to All. Hope that your week start off a good one, there will be so much goings on this weeks, let's all face it head on with Love and a smile.
Good morning my friend. Hope that your Monday start off good, since I know that you hate going to that job of darkness as you calls it. LOL.

your cleanse for a new start,
Make the sky that is above,
your inner dream to achieve,
Make the calmness of the lake,
your serenity to believe,
Make the rainbow that appears,
your precious treasure to find,
Make the cloud that floats,
your fluffy comfort so kind,
Make the ocean that roars,
your courage and peaceful fight,
Make the mountains that stand,
your strength and honest loyalty,
Make the valleys that dip,
your compassion and gracious dignity,
Make the streams that flow,
your inner peace and joy,
Make the flower that grows,
your beautiful blessing...to enjoy!
Bless You All..with Love, Faith, Peace & Courage~
The day is creeping up on us,
that we lost sight, of the precious him,
Gone from our crying eyes,
poof... gone like the wind,
A sad and hurtful year has passed,
with longing pain in our hearts,
Missing our dear precious one,
where did he go, why did he.. depart?
A grieving memory with a song,
an incredible dance to look at,
Loving words that he spoke,
with peaceful wisdom, to combat,
With the stillness of the moment,
an angel appears in my mind,
On June 25th 2010,
we lost our king of mankind!
Bless You Always Michael~
Did you read my response to you a blog or two back stating I would love to meet you in Las Vegas in August? The weather is very hot and the evenings/nights are best. Maria, I have always felt the majority of MJ haters aren't really haters but rather attention seekers just to upset MJ fans. They intentionally post to get fans upset and thrive on the reaction they receive from us. I agree with your philosophy by not commenting back to them. That way they do not receive reaction for their actions.
Hello Pat. All the original bloggers from June/July 2009 will be back on the LKL blog June 25 for a reunion. Isn't it wonderful that MMJ is going to Gary, IN. with gifts in memory of MJ from us.
@pat davis my friend
i am still here as you can see
but some have tried to get rid of me
many lies have been told
but they should know that truths the gold
and the only thing that i can do
is be myself and that is true
this is what some cannot understand
we need to come together and walk hand in hand
when one journey is over a new one will begin
for the love of our world for the love of our king
so a hug love and a smile i give to you
its all about change which some cannot do
Hi everybody!We are so close to 25. I feel horrible all ready,like the day Michael died.
Pat Davis,you are right ,we need to have abig reunion,of all those that were here originally ,I hope they will return! Gene,Superfly ,Scarecrow1958,oh,hi!, Stuci,Anon', D.O.M.E. aka 'Just an Ave Joe'............The Informer'! And all those who had Jheri Curls! LOL......I would be so happy to see themAll here ! I will bring cookies and organic tea! Beverly Chicago ,has some amazing tasting Lollipops ,and I am sure we can get everyone to bring something! .....
This yr ,has been so emotional ,so charged ,through it all ,the LOVE .....Outnumbered the Hate ,and this is why my ...'torch' is lit and held high ,For Michael,for the truth to be revealed ,for justice ,for the Entire Jackson Family !
Lets show the world what L.O.V.E. means to us ...here at this 'special' place! Love Maria C.
May God indeed bless you Randy. You loved your brother and you are hurt.
We love you all.
WE WILL CONTINUE TO PRAY OK?
Baby C is such a delight, and I am treasuring every moment. I really have been fortunate as she is a contented baby...my mom says that will mean a rambunctious teenager! Aren't they all??!! I hope you are well. Love and strength to you.
Hey lady! I am loving being a mom! Hubby was volunteering with cleanup in the gulf last week (such a sad situation) so he was about 8 pounds lighter and exhausted physically and mentally, and he just held on tight to his little girl. My heart breaks for Paris...she just seemed so close to Michael, they had a special daddy/daughter bond. Michael gave those children more in the short time he had with them then many dads give in a lifetime, so I wish them happiness and laughter and a life filled with the things money cannot buy. Love to you Pat!!
Some friends of my mom will be in Gary...they will be there to pay tribute to Michael and to light a candle in his honor.
That is a beautiful thing you all are doing! I am sure Paris looks at everything in those memory boxes!! She is so much like Michael...when he said he likes to look through drawers and such...she just reminds me of her daddy. She will love and treasure the memory box, I am sure.
Well, this will be a long week filled with many /tabloid 'memorials'...maybe after June 25, Michael will finally be left alone. The trial will stir things up again, but time to allow Michael to rest in peace.
We have the truth!
And we will ALWAYS be there!!
Friday June 25...that will be closure...no trial or prison term for Murray will bring Michael back, so Friday...this is it.
It has been a very long emotional year.
I am comforted in knowing you will be here...we have stuck it out, being Michael's voice on LKL boggies!!
We Spread 'the message' and that is:
Be Michael's voice...the voice he no longer has!
Speak THE TRUTH!!!
Continue to MAKE THAT CHANGE!!!
Love you my Suzie Q!!
Did anyone catch Geraldos' show last night? He claims that in Murrays contract with AEG that he requested a nurse to assist him and also cpr equipment and AEG denied the request? Wonder if AEG was aware of what was going on at the house? If they suspected or knew Michael was using something and denied the request I feel they are as much to blame as Murray.
solty June 21st, 2010 10:10 am ET
I agree...problem is proving AEG knew anything and Murray can only provide his truth on the matter and it would be his word against AEG...sad.
The only way to implicate AEG is if there is documented proof that they knew why Murray needed that nurse and equipment...I am sure they knew exactly what was going on but heresay is not enough, imo. The emails Joe has that Oxman (UGH!!) presented to the Cal. Med. Board may have something along those lines but not in the info presented that I have read. I sincerely believe AEG has blood on their hands but will basically get away with murder...and I fear the same for Murray.
Good Morning Everyone!
@ Susan....Hi Susan : ) !
Great to see ya! I swear I've got to get over to your blog again! I hear that's where all the girls still meet. Right now I'm doing the fb thing but I do miss chatting. I have been a mess the past couple of weeks anticipating June 25th. It's funny because last year on that day it was the last day of school for my daughter. In fact the children did a dance routine to 'Beat It' at their assembly that day. We came home all excited, ready to start summer vacation and then I got a call from a family member who said " Did you hear about Michael Jackson? He was rushed to the hospital. " I immediately changed my television to CNN and there it was. Then about 20 minutes later they were pronouncing him dead. I was on the phone at the time with a girlfriend and we both kept saying in surprise " Michaed Jackson's dead! They just said Michael is dead! " I remember saying to my friend, " Cheryl let me call you back, I can't talk right now ". I thought I was going to faint. I can barely type right now thinking about that moment. This year on June 25th I'll be attending my 5 year old cousin's graduation to the 1st. grade. It's going to be quite a day....like I said before just thinking about it makes me feel lightheaded. I'll be so proud of my little cousin but at the same time Michael will be on my mind. I am looking forward to visiting here on the blog Friday. I am going to need that support. I've gotta go now, the memories are starting to become overwhelming.... : ( .
I Hope Everyone Has A Great Monday......Blog Ya Later!!!
Michael Jackson....I Never Can Say Goodbye....MJ-FAN4LIFE!!!
Good Morning Everyone, I hope each and every one of you have a great day today.
@ Letta –
I'm in a rush here, but will read my favorite part of the blog – your daily words – at work. That is the great thing, I can read the blog at work but don't dare to post. Take care ok.
'We did not see you close your eyes,
Or hear your last faint sigh,
We only heard that you were gone,
Too late to say good-bye.
There is a bridge of memories,
From here to Heaven above,
That keeps you very close to us,
It’s called the bridge of love.
A thousand prayers can’t bring you back,
We know because we’ve tried,
And neither will a million tears,
We know because we’ve cried.
To us you were so special,
What more is there to say,
Except to wish with all our hearts,
That you were here today."
Thank you Michael for giving us a lifetime of your heart, you will always hold a special place in my heart..........A heavy laden soul, now safe in the arms of Jesus.
Thank you for the information. I concur. There will always be pranksters on the web. I guess some people have nothing better to do. It is a shame, they waste their energy and time on such foolishness.
Always so gracious are your posts with beautiful poems and expressions. Thank you
Thank you for the information. Welcome!
Thank you for your kind post! I am well. I hope you are making the adjustments to your new place and enjoying the change.
I assume that is from TMZ. I completely agree. Michael’s children are still struggling from the loss of their father. Even adult children struggle for a long time with the death of their father, especially if he was close to them. People, including many fathers, do not realize the impact they have on their family with their death.
OMG such beautiful poetry today. It brings tears to my eyes!
Rock With You Horsegirl,thank you for sharing the video of Michael's little princess.,Michael a very proud father and he he looked so happy.(Smiles) to you.
Diana77,thanks for sharing the video you posted with everyone here.Michael an exceptional father,his children look so content,and happy.Watching that video you could feel the love Michael and his children have for one another.Such a pleasure to watch thanks again. (Smiles) to you.
Letta,thanks for sharing your daily quotes and poems.They are truly appreciated.It is a great way to start the day.(Smiles) to you.
Hey girl! What a magnificent post you made! Sorry for the delay, was out of town. I completely agree! What a genius!
Interesting vid for sure!
Good to see you back! Hope you aced your exams!
You're right. They never change! :)
@ Michael Jackson
I hope you had the greatest Father's Day ever with your three precious gems! I know we're in for a crazy couple of weeks coming up, but I am thoroughly enjoying this multi-faceted show! Thanks for this incredible experience and journey!
Much love and MJ hugs to all!
I love you, Michael! And YES, I will be there! :) :) :)

Don't believe anything you read @ TMZ, most of the family says the kids are doing great.
Showbiz411.com has quite a few articles about Michael Jackson today.
Hi Pat Davis:
The ladies on our blog are only about 25% of the original bloggers from June/July 2009. Many are spread out on other websites but we keep in touch. Word is out, so many will be returning. The LKL blog will probably run slow due to overload and the mods pulling their hair out. lol The majority of bloggers that feel MJ is still alive came to this blog in Sept. Hopefully it will be a peaceful day between the different beliefs out of respect for Michael.
We will have boxes of virtual blue tissues for tears on Friday. Hopefully the media will have kinds words all day long for MJ. I'm glad MJ3 will be in Gary, IN. to avoid the fans at Forest Lawn. A large group of fans want to bring a beautiful trunk full of letters and gifts to be placed hear MJ's crypt, but FL says no way. Hopefully the trunk will end up with MJ3 and Katherine for them to treasure.
Our lady with the stamina and guts to take on the world. lol Please tell your husband thank you for his dedication in the gulf oil clean up.
His consideration towards others has been noted. Don't forget to watch Animal Plant tomorrow night at 10 p.m. ET/PT. It's about MJ and Bubbles.
Hey girl. Another lady with intestinal fortitude. Love it !! Do you still hear from DN?
Showbiz411.com reports that Janet Jackson gathered family and attorneys for a meeting re/MJ's 2002 will, they believe it is fake.
So now we have – fake amubulance photo, fake autopsy report, fake will, hmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm
what else we will found out is fake ??????????
Michael was not only the father but he took on both roles. He fed them, changed their diapers, rocked them to sleep, read them stories, took them to doctor appointments, shopping ....... EVERYTHING. Michael was their world! My heart aches just thinking about how much Prince, Paris and Blanket miss him. It's so heartbreaking....
Check out the tribute song on youtube by Henry Gorman ' "Billie Jean Is Waiting" beautiful tribute.
If AEG dnied the nurse and the proper equipment, Murray should not have been giving Michael the propofol. It was still Murray's fault since HE was the one that gave him the drug that killed Michael that night. Murray should have hired the nurse himself since AEG was paying him $150,000 per month! If he felt the proper percautions were not in place, then he should NOT have given Michael the drug that night. Joe is trying to pin it all on AEG because they have deeper pockets, but it is ALL Murray's fault......I cannot believe he is still allowed to practice medicine. He makes t he entire medical board look like fools.
Did anyone catch the show on TLC last night about Michael's children?
"Gone Too Soon" airs Friday night on the TV GUide Network ( 8 PM.) At the same time CNN also is airing a special.
Hey Pat Davis- :)

Yes Murray is ultimately responsible...and I refuse to watch anything that supports Ian Halperin.
Yes....just call me the Last of the Mohicans!!!
Who is this Howard Mann who supposedly is in business w/Katherine?? He is supposedly involved w.her new book and has in his possession over 200 Jackson songs and over 19,000 photos from a storage locker he bought ans is attempting to go into business with her to work together??? He is some gambling porn dude...??????
Katherine is probably vulnerable like Michael always was...ans trusts the wrong people who just happen to appear nice on the surface. UGH!!!
My husband is really upset with what is going on in the gulf. He plans on going back, but I fear for his health as the air/etc is toxic. Sad situation...he went to Louisiana after Katrina to help. I just feel for those families...and the leak is not stopped yet. Tragic.
You both need to be here for June 25!! I want to blog with you both one last time!!! PLEASE come back once more!!!!
Rest in peace sweet Michael.
Thank you for the Video for Billy Jean. Thank's for sharing with all of us. Letta

cris,thanks for sharing the link for the video,awesome it was.
4 days and ?????? It's okay I got the answer this time.(Smiles) to you.
Alone with my thoughts,
directed towards him,
Is he alright at this moment,
as I hum this hymn,
Carry me away,
on the wing of this prayer,
Protect him for always,
please whisper I care,
his dear precious loving soul,
Guide him forever,
with angel wings to console,
Never stop believing,
in his message he gave,
Peace, Love and Happiness,
in his heart..engraved!
Aphrodite, Mesereau, C. Thompson, Geraldine Hughes, etc. etc. etc. ALL acknowledge Michael's death!
Michael DIED one year ago this Friday...and that is truth...no message will change that, but we all can carry on his message of hope for a better world!
Make that change!!
My mom was in Vegas...I wish I would have thought and you two could have met! She is so full of Michal stories!! And she has old photos of the house in Gary, as well as many many tour memorabilia!!! She is a very cool mom!!! She doesn't like to talk about the trial, but is finally getting over my brother's death and Michael's. People are born and then they die...some much too soon.

Randy speaks the truth in the CNN interview...and the tweet from Janet attests to her belief in what Randy states and what she said during her interview with ABC.
Justice for Michael is what they are hoping for.
Listen to Randy...hear the TRUTH!!!
Showbiz411dotcom gets a few things right. In one article they said this:
"The vultures around Michael Jackson have circled June 25th–the first anniversary of his death– for their first attacks.
That’s the day Ian Halperin, sleazy tabloid muckracker, airs his “Gone Too Soon” film on the TV Guide Network. Halperin has already feasted on Michael Jackson’s remains with a book last year. Now he comes with an editorial film in which he interviews the D list from the Jackson outer circle about their knowledge of Jackson’s life. It will be interesting to see how he handles not having Jackson’ s music in his film, let alone the people who really knew him.…"
Awwww Maria, I didn't know you had a son and a daughter. And they're night owls too. :) That's really cute! Are they still little or all grown? Lots of love to you and your children. Hugs and blessings.

The Gulf of Mexico
There once was a lovely place by the sea
Where all wildlife was bountiful and free……
The water was a beautiful pristine blue
A place where all the young species grew…..
This place was a magnificent biosphere
Until oil companies descended upon there…..
Now there’s no way to describe this place
Its water now filled with oil, all is a waste………
This place is the Gulf of Mexico
A place I once truly loved to go……
I realize this is not about Michael. But this situation is so catastrophic and just breaks my heart! So Much death!!!!!!!!! I am sorry if I am off topic.......
Mary-Jane,That's okay if you are off topic,it was nice of you to share your poem with us all.What is happening in the Gulf Of Mexico effects each and everyone of us on some level.The loss of animal species is very real,there is no reversal of the damage done.I am sure this would make Michael very sad as well,as Michael was so about our planet and saving it .Thanks again for sharing,sending (Smiles) your way.

Posted On Behalf Of Maria Copelli:
Hi there – Below is a copy of the article! Thanks for sharing with others.
"Michael Jackson, the Wounded Messenger"
By Matt Semino, Esq.
With the mask finally removed, her tearful goodbye humanized him in the eyes of millions of adoring fans and even skeptical detractors across the globe. Paris Jackson was the poignant conclusion to her father Michael’s celebrated memorial service. At the same time, her few words served as a painful reminder of the conflicted legacy that, as some proclaim, the greatest entertainer of all time leaves behind in the wake of his sudden, tragic and mysterious death. In Michael Jackson’s passing, this international icon casts as many if not more unanswered questions about the out of the ordinary life he led behind the curtain of his private stage.
Intense speculation over the star’s actual cause of death has ranged from an accidental overdose to explosive allegations from some family members of foul play and even murder. In the later stages of his life, Jackson was caught in a downward spiral of prescription drug abuse fostered through a tangled web of star-struck enablers and unscrupulous members of the medical establishment. As in his life, Michael Jackson was engulfed by complex legal and ethical dilemmas even at the precise moment of his death. Questions concerning the custody of Jackson’s three children, whether those children are connected to him biologically, control over and division of his complex estate, burial procedures and a final resting place for the star’s remains, use of Los Angeles public funding for a celebrity laden memorial service at the Staples Center and countless more controversial issues moved in swiftly like an ominous and heavy fog in the days and weeks
following June 25th.
Upon his death, the Pandora’s box that is Michael Jackson’s secretive but highly scrutinized life burst open once again and the media as well as the public’s insatiable appetite for all of the juicy details immediately became palpable. The daily headlines read like vivid medical records. ‘Michael Jackson’s Autopsy Photo,’ ‘Michael Jackson’s Hair on Fire,’ ‘Michael Jackson’s Leg Wounds and Needle Marks,’ and ‘Michael Jackson was Sterile’ are just a few. Only the most imaginative fiction writer could create a story with such high drama and sordid twists and turns. Even with all of its tabloid entertainment value, it is a monumental disservice to Michael Jackson’s memory that a thoughtful analysis of his significant cultural contributions, particularly in the realm of human rights and social justice, are being obscured in the process of examining his death and now his corpse.
Through his prolific body of work, advocacy initiatives and multi-million dollar charity efforts, Michael Jackson raised international awareness and support for some of the most complex and timeless issues confronting the human condition. AIDS, cancer, famine, homelessness, gang violence, racism, totalitarianism, environmental degradation, child abuse, violations of animal rights, restrictions on freedom of speech and other infringements upon basic civil liberties are just some of the difficult subjects Jackson tackled by leveraging the power of his celebrity. Michael Jackson’s intuitive understanding of the problems besetting the human ecological system was uncanny and uncharacteristic for any entertainer close to his magnitude.
Many have been so dazzled by Jackson’s masterful showmanship and the consistent controversy surrounding his life and death that it would be easy not to recognize the overarching social and political themes embodied in his music, videos and public interviews. The intense emotional pull, messages and raw feelings that reverberate through the lyrics and sometimes disturbing video imagery of songs such as “They Don’t Care About Us,” “Heal the World,” “Earth Song,” and “Man in the Mirror” are gut-wrenching. A deeper analysis of Michael Jackson’s work reveals an individual with a burning concern for improving the lives of the disadvantaged and persecuted around the world. The passion and verve with which Jackson digs his hands into the soil and grasps the trees in his video for “Earth Song,” an operatic piece where he addresses environment and animal welfare, is a reflection of a leader of humanity who cares deeply about the
issues he is challenging.
Global events in the weeks surrounding Jackson’s death alone directly mirror the complex problems for which he attempted to raise international awareness. In Iran and before the world’s eyes, civilian demonstrations were squashed and innocent victims like the young Neda Agha-Soltan brutally murdered by instruments of a totalitarian state. In Washington , D.C. , a white supremacist motivated by pure hate attempted a killing spree at the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum, murdering an African American security guard in his rampage. In North Korea, U.S. journalists Laura Ling and Euna Lee were unjustly sentenced to twelve years of hard labor to merely serve as international bargaining chips for an evil dictator. Michael Jackson spoke out loudly against these forms of racism and repression and attempted to ignite our passion to prevent the continuance of such abuse, neglect and discrimination. How are we now missing this message when it is even more
crucial for it to be absorbed into the public mind? Not only do Michael Jackson’s cries of awakening continue to be ignored but his reputation continues to be smeared.
With the current fixation on the gruesome details surrounding Jackson’s physical demise, we have lost focus on the social relevance of Michael Jackson in our cultural timeline. Jackson’s symbol has the power to force what might be a difficult and uncomfortable period of public self-reflection. What progress has been made on the global humanitarian and civil rights issues that Jackson brought to light for the masses? What realistically still needs to be accomplished in each of these realms to actually make future progress? These are the crucial questions that need to be contemplated in the context of Michael Jackson’s death.
Many may ask why this controversial figure, a man who has been the subject of intense criticism and public backlash, should be given such gravity in framing public discourse over the day’s most important topics. Sometimes it takes one person, not just a political or spiritual leader, who stands out symbolically from the rest of society, to make that society reflect on the principles that it follows and the values it embraces. Jackson , throughout his life and in his death, has been ridiculed and revered, vilified and vaunted. In many respects, his story represents the highest possible highs and the lowest possible lows that life can present to a human being. Michael Jackson’s tremendous talent, success, wealth and public adoration were at odds with his extreme loneliness, fear, addiction and destruction of reputation by public opinion. In the end though, Michael Jackson was much more than an entertainer. His contributions to the entertainment
field are no doubt profound. However, it is his broad cultural impact that truly transcends economic, social, political, racial, religious and generational barriers. Jackson rose from being simply a magical performer into becoming a humanitarian of historic import. He was a modern day messenger, a visionary storyteller who raised the level of consciousness for citizens across national boundaries. This level of contribution is what the social contract demands of those who are blessed with natural gifts, power and wealth. Shouldn’t we then embrace and support people who are destined for this life mission instead of deriding them? As history progresses and Jackson’s symbol and work are analyzed in conjunction with the unfolding of human events, the important cultural relevance of his persona will be uncovered. Like a piece of classic Greek literature that embodies timeless themes of human striving and suffering, Michael Jackson’s canon and
celebrity will come to hold a similar place in the modern day cultural pantheon. Why then was it necessary to shoot the messenger?
Martin Bashir’s highly controversial 2003 TV documentary, ‘Living with Michael Jackson’ is just one of the many examples of the ways in which Jackson was unfairly portrayed in the media. The documentary was a PR nightmare for the star. Bashir’s video interviews and commentary were cleverly edited as to purposely paint Jackson as a megalomaniac child molester. The film focused, in a highly negative manner, on the abuse Jackson suffered as a child at the hands of his father, the rumors behind his drastic physical transformation, his intense friendships with young boys, the nature of his past romantic relationships and questions concerning the genetic lineage of his children, among other sensitive topics. Bashir conveniently cut out footage that presented a countervailing impression of Jackson. Bashir’s documentary and Michael Jackson’s subsequent rebuttal, in the form of a TV special hosted by Maury Povich, provide a candid, never before
seen glimpse into what made this man tick. In many respects, Michael Jackson was a lonely soul who found the greatest comfort isolated behind the gates of his Neverland ranch and in the company of animals, children, carnival rides and opulent possessions. In the last years of his life, Jackson became reclusive to the point that he was unable to function even within celebrity society due to the immensity of his fame and the parasitic attention drawn by even the briefest public appearance. Examining these interviews, it becomes clear that Michael Jackson is one of the most misunderstood figures in modern day popular culture.
The incessant media backlash against Michael Jackson throughout his career and now in his death is driven by the fact that Jackson, as a symbolic figure, forces us to look in the mirror and face the difficult and sometimes intractable problems of our society and in ourselves that we may not want to acknowledge. How dare he? Jackson brilliantly shines light on civilization’s accomplishments and failures in their most extreme forms. To be repulsed by the drastic transformation of his face was to simultaneously recognize the excessiveness of a beauty obsessed culture that allows money to change even the most fundamental components of our DNA. When looking and commenting on his mask, weren’t we also secretly acknowledging both the literal and figurative masks that we sometimes hide behind? Ironically, Michael Jackson’s physical changes led him to be branded as an “oddity” or “freak” by a media culture that promotes physical perfection
through any means necessary. As Jackson proclaimed during his interviews with Bashir, “Plastic surgery was not invented for Michael Jackson!”
The child molestation charges brought against Jackson first in 1993 and again in 2005, for which he was skewered and roasted by the media and public, were baseless extortion attempts fueled by the petty greed and jealousy of his accusers. Despite settling the 1993 case and being acquitted of the 2005 charges, Michael Jackson’s commercial appeal and public image were severely damaged by the allegations. The child molestation charges against Jackson represented a modern day witch hunt in its most base form. Unfortunately for Jackson, the hunt was not localized to Salem but played out globally through the aid of modern media technology. The molestation charges were fueled by likely feelings of inadequacy in the parents of the alleged child victims who were so enamored by Jackson. Perhaps these parents did not believe that they could compete with the love and material fantasy that Michael Jackson provided to their children which caused them to lash
out in desperation. Jealousy combined with greed is highly combustible. The media’s depiction of Michael Jackson as a plastic surgery obsessed eccentric made him an easy target and an unsympathetic victim. It just wasn’t believable that someone that acted and looked like him could be kind, sensitive, compassionate and loving. What was the motivation behind it all? What was wrong with him? There had to be something askew. What if Michael Jackson’s motivation was simply to give hope to those less fortunate? Was all of this then just the senseless destruction of a human being to satisfy our insecurities and quell our fears of the unknown and misunderstood.
As we reflect upon Michael Jackson’s life and now death, it is difficult not to feel sad for the man and view him in a tragic light. With all of his power, wealth and fame, he now lays before us like a bird crushed after being pelted repeatedly by outsized stones. Dejected, Jackson continued to turn inward, fearful of what the world he cared so deeply about changing for the better was throwing at him. The drugs just served as an opiate to the pain of an artist and humanitarian that was overburdened by a mission that he didn’t believe he accomplished. Addicted, it was the greed of those surrounding Michael Jackson who continued to indulge his desires out of self-preservation. The numbness of the painkillers relieved the ache caused by knowing that despite what he sought to give and change in the society around him, the burden of his creations and the scathing critique it engendered had become too overwhelming for one person to sustain. Michael
Jackson was a modern Sisyphus, the loin clothed man condemned to repeatedly pushing a rock up a mountain only to see it roll back down. Sadly though, our Sisyphus collapsed under the weight of his struggle.
Michael Jackson was inflated to the position of a pop deity, a mythical figure, only to be crucified and stoned by the media gods who created his success. His bold eccentricities lied outside of the norm of standard, socially acceptable behavior but were they necessarily illegal or wrong? No. Most of Michael Jackson’s actions were unconventional yet, at the same time, wasn’t the grandeur of his celebrity and global status beyond anything that modern day culture has ever witnessed? His grandeur, his eccentricity, each influenced and exaggerated the other.
It is undeniable that Michael Jackson’s immense celebrity and wealth allowed him to remove himself from mainstream society and observe the world from a privileged vantage point. Sometimes though, it takes that fortunate but isolated position to be able to make the least polluted social observations and ultimately produce the most effective societal commentary through art. Throughout history, the work and lives of multiple artists have been ridiculed and scorned by the public during their heyday, only to be placed posthumously into the canon of the Greats. It is without doubt that Michael Jackson will, in due course, garner this same level of critical acclaim as an artist and most importantly, as a humanitarian.

@ Letta and Maura
Thanks ladies, and you are welcome Maura, just passing on a petition that all MJ fans world wide should sign, believer or not. It is appalling the way the media portrays some celebrities, not only Michael Jackson, but many more.Dragging ones name through the mud with sensationalism based on lies, just so they get their story sold….rarely going back to correct their “mistakes”. The media will filter out the truths before going to print, allowing only what THEY want you to see. All categories/topics/subjects/channels, are up for this type of scrutiny.
If we all stand together, side by side, regardless of beliefs, we can make a difference. Our energy should be focused on making a difference, not bickering amongst ourselves. If everyone cares as much as I have read on these blogs, then do something about it. However small.
Have a lovely day or night to everyone.
Has ANYONE read the distasteful article in the NY Post about Michael???? Please for to mj4justice and see where to protest this disgust!!
@ALL,Yes ,the hateful comments from the Media' whores' are speing there 'lets get higher ratings' 'Venom'! I think I read something about the show 60 mins,referring to Michael as 'working stiff'! I stand corrected ,if i have been misinformed! '
Now the question is ,what can WE do? Can we send emails ,call there corporate offices? Can we peacwfully ,but FIRMLY ,let them know ,'We Have Had Enough!'?
Admittedly ,I was very angry hurt ,dismayed when I read that horrible article! Carie than you for raising an awarenss about this ,'aricle.'
When will they leave Michael and his entire family alone? It is time ,we let the Powers that be ', understand enough is enough!
Please let's come together ,and think of more ways to realistically ,send the message , to these 'money hungry ' individuals and ratings people, that millions of people are tired of this nonsense!
I apologize for any typos.....Love and thank you All...Maria C.
Beverly Chicago ,thank you my sister for posting that article ! I hope spme here will take the time to read it ,in it's entirety .Bev thank you for being there ....Love and millions of hugs ,Maria C.
Maria C, My day was fine hope yours was as well,yes of course still holding on will never let go,Torches held high.Staying strong and positive.(Smiles) from the heart.
Maria C, there has to be something we the people can do to stop the media from the bashing and lies.i would say one would have to write or email,I would say phone but they would probably find an excuse to not talk to anyone.Yes one has to call the media on it and tell them enough is enough.Here In my country we did call on the media for there never ending brainwashing,trying to make people believe in everything they put out there.No it had nothing to do with celebrities, but the H1N1 virus.Yes we called them on their crap, putting fear and telling lies.It was put to a stop,it was actually quite funny as this was aired on a news channel and they could not find any means to justify their ignorant ways.It looked quite good on them.So yes I would say we have to confront the media by any means possible.Time to call them on it as it has been long over due,.Sending many (Smiles) your way.
You're welcome! It's a great article, kind of long, but well worth reading.
I also loved the Million Trees For Michael idea. That is a fabulous idea, so I just visited their website a few minutes ago. Thank you so much for wanting to share this with all of us.
Love, Your Sister, Bev
Maria C,Beverly- Chicago.Thank you both kindly for the article,a little long yes but it was most certainly worth the read.You are both so sweet thanks again, Sending many (Smiles) your way.
Pixie ,I want to move to your country! Well done ,and you have no idea ,how the very topic you mentioned ,was one my son and I talked about ,and researched ! And were our eyes opened! Disgraceful...to say the least ! This is all I can say for now!
We have to let them know we are onto their rating ,and name calling ,games ! Charles Thomson ,has done an incredible job of writng the TRUTH!
It is the time to stand and deliver. Peacfully ofcourse ,it is the only way .....But it has got to stop,somehow ,someway ,and it starts with each of us being aware of the 'Games',and refusng to support them ,as they help destroy innocent lives !
Thank you ,for sharing what you all did ,in your country ! Good for you all! It is a shame that we have to say a word ,but sometimes we have to do something dont we?
No one deserves to be lied on and mistreated ......it is very sad .Love to you Maria C.
Maria C, Thank you Maria,you would probably love it here.It is a beautiful country.Yes if we stay in silence we will never be heard.No one should be lied on or mistreated,it is actually beyond sad.Yes this has to stop.Like you said innocent lives.are forever being destroyed.(Smiles) from the heart.
Carie ,what a disgraceful 'article'.How can anyone say such horrible things ? This is the exact oppostie of the article written by Matt Semino ,which yes is Long ,but so respectfully written .
This has go to stop! Love Maria C.
Maria C, Goodnight sweetie have a wonderful evening,I am with you on all of this,holding on tight.Sending many (Smiles) your way.
Letta(beLIEve).Goodnight to you as well,sweet dreams,I look forward to the morning to read your wonderful quotes/comments.A great way to start the day.Sending you lots of (Smiles)
cris,,Marguerite, and who ever else I missed good night . Stay strong and positive.(Smiles) to you all.
Pixie Dust- Everything I could say on the blogs I have already said more than once in the last 12 months. I don't see why I should keep on repeating the same thing over and over again. I am just mainly reading and watching. Hope you are doing ok.
Margurite,I totally understand.I am doing fine just hoping you are as well,take care Marguerite and just know I am always thinking of you and and wishing you nothing but the best (Smiles) to you.
Pixie Dust- Thank you. It is nice to know people care. Smiles to you as well.
Marguerite-exactly. I see what you mean.
Stay Strong and Positive. Celebrate the Message.
@MJ HATERS LET NASTY POSTS THROUGH MICHAEL IS UP AGAINST IT, MICHAEL WE LOVE YOU WE WILL BE THERE
In Celebrating the Message, this week why don't we try to post the positive. You can try all you can, but the negativity will ALWAYS be there. Let's not bring the negative articles that will be posted this week here. Celebrate the Message!!!!!! If you are Strong and Positive you rise above the negative.
I have signed my names on many petitions and will continue to, but I ask this week, let's not bring the nonsense from other media outlets here. What looked to many on 6/25 to be so shocking has passed and it has been a year. We should all be thankful that we survived. We can't change what happened on 6/25, all we can do is wait to see the truth. And with that I hope you all will at least listen to the message and in some way celebrate.
nice poem. So you finally changed your mind about michael being alive?
Hi, dear carie unfortunately the media will keep desrespecting michael. the only thing we can do is to ignore those haters and not to buy their crap. as longs as there are people who pay for these crapy magazines they will exist. I wish we could burn them all. I see that you are calling for our dear DN. I was in contact for a while thry email but she has not been answering any of my emails for the past couple of months. I don't know what has happened to her. I am really worried about her. I am going to send her another email tomorrow and see if she responds. anyway how is your little girl doing? do you play michael's music for her? have you heard the song " scared of the Moon"? . michael's voice is so soft in it, it's like a lalaby.
Let me see you
In the sunlight
In the moonlight
Up high in the stars
All full of love
Waiting to break free
Let me see you
The eyes of an Angel
I know you are here
With me, I can feel you
I can hear you
Shed no tears
For I am here
Let me see you
The way it is meant
The gentle man that was
there with another inside
Forever hold true
Never give up
Stay strong and head up
Let me see you

Doubtingthomas- Thank you. It is nice to know others understand what I am saying and what I mean. I love MJ and want only the best for him and his family. But I see no need to repeat what I have said many many times in te past 12 months. All that is left to do now is just wait, watch and read. Plus too I am busy with my Interior Design studies.rofl
@Doubting Thomas @Pixie Dust, I've been trying to post a youtube video, but stupid blog won't let me. It's pictures of Michael with little Paris, the music is played by Steven Curtis Chapman. The songs called, Cinderella. You will cry!
@Pixie Dust, I'm glad you were able to see the video, I had a hard time posting it. I meant to put it right on Father's Day.
Ever since June 25, 2009, MJ has always been on the back of my mind.
Why would anyone post such a hatefull post from the gutter rats.Any true mj fan would need to scrub there hands at the thought of touching such an evil nasty demoralizing destructive post.Michael be strong we have your back some so called fans need a reality check they dont know you at all.Even some they know who they are only became a fan on the backs of others how sad michael take the believers hands we are with you every step of the way thank you for being your wonderful amazing self
Reach out mike i will be there
Dont let go of my hand
I heard on Geraldo's show on Sat that AEG did not give Michael a choice but to perform these concerts that were too much for him! It's absurd! Michael's death could have been prevented.
I'm doing fine Maria. I did go out today and the sunshine was very beautiful. That's sweet that your children are your best friends. I'm the same way with my mom :) I bet they have great hearts just like you Maria.
Yes, I have siblings. I have two older brothers. We have fun laughing together a lot. They are sweet. I love them so much. Yes, the truth will definitely prevail Maria. Keep your head up this rough week. Love hugs and blessings
May all have a blessed day today
Beautiful poem about the Gulf. I have been there several times myself and it breaks my heart to see this tragedy unfolding. This will have far reaching effects on us all.
May we keep "our world" in our thoughts and prayers.
Lord, bless my work today. Help me do each task one step at a time. Help me respond to the individual needs of each person. Help me treat others as I would like to be treated.
Keep my mind and thoughts clear, my speech soft and precise,, never offensive; my work always worthy; my faith proud and strong
If there is righteousness in the heart, there will be beauty in the character. If there is beauty in the character, there will be harmony in the home. If there is harmony in the home, there will be order in the nation. If there is order in the nation, there will be peace in the world.
Faith knows there is an ocean because there is a brook.
Take time to laugh, it is the music of the soul.
Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves for they shall never cease to be amused.
When fortune is against us we don’t forget to whine, but do we remember gratitude when everything is fine?
@EVERYONE re: NY Post
Do not entertain the NY Post by clicking on their website. They are using Michael Jackson fans as BAIT. They WANT you to visit their site and protest. They are using every single Michael Jackson fan for free advertisement- not to make us upset. It is a marketing strategy. This is America, so therefore it is this woman's constituttional right and freedom of speech to say whatever she wants so FB groups and petitions will never stop American journalism, especially not where Michael Jackson is concerned. So let us be part of the solution, not part of the problem- do not visit tabloid sites. The only way we know about sites like the NY Post is if we visit them.
Kind hearts are the gardens. Kind thoughts are the roots.
Kind words are the flowers. Kind deeds are the fruits.
Take care of your garden and keep out the weeds.
Fill it with sunshine. Kind words’ and kind deeds.
Safety and happiness can only come from individuals, classes and nations being honest and fair and kind to each other.
Has anyone ordered the new book that Mrs. Katherine is publishing? TMZ seems to be promoting it. I checked out the website and it looks interesting and the book is supposed to have many unseen photos. There is a 35% off coupon code too. What does everyone think?

Hi, glad to see your comment and hoping that you are enjoying the rest of your summer. Hope all is well, Love, Hugs, & Blessings. Letta
Rubbing my slumber eyes,
wiping the sleep away,
My mind is still in a dream,
a place so warm to stay,
The sun is peeking thru,
with eagerness to awake,
A yawn occupies my air,
with every breath that I take,
Slowly and softy I recognize,
for another day has been given,
Another lesson to be taught,
with all mistakes to be forgiven,
Gratitude I will always feel,
and gracious love to share,
A smile placed on my face,
to thank him.... for I care!
Hi, hope all is going well with you. That you are not working you self to hard and getting the much need sleep that you need. Not sure if you are still reading these blogs, one never knows. Just hoping that you are, because look's like you stop posting, or maybe they are not going through as some of mines have not. Just wondering will you have some time to either post or stop my you know the place, lots of friend will like to chat with you, including myself. You are miss in as you called it the "House of Love", and many are wondering if you will return, especially, since what happen the last time you visit there. Just wondering if all is okay with you my friend, along with some that post on the blog as well. Hope that you will post or come by soon as I stated above. Until then I pray that you are having a wonderful day, week with many Blessings your way. Hugs, Love & Lots of Blessing my friend, Letta
The weather is really great lately. Lots of sun, the beautiful birds, and the cats. :) Made me think of you again. I miss you terribly. :( I really hope to see you soon when you're not busy and have rested. Love always
I know...it just really is pathetic that the crappy journalists cannot allow Michael to just rest in peace. He had enough when he was alive...his death deserves respect. And even here with all the 'message' crap...the message is be Michael's voice that he no longer has, and to try and make this world a better place. The 'shocking event' that happened on June 25, 2009 has NOT passed...it is still real...Michael is dead a year this Friday. The TRUTH is in Randy's voice in the CNN interview above...the TRUTH is in Katherine's face on the previous blog...the TRUTH is Michael died and it was negligent and it was senseless and that is the TRUTH!!! And the 'message' is spoken in Randy's words in the CNN interview and in Katherine's face and in the heartbreak of his children...to be Michael's voice and to hope and pray for justice and to speak out on his behalf for the end to doctors for sale! Michael is dead and that is reality. Enough of the tabloid crap and enough of the crap here!
Elly, yes, I have heard that beautiful song...and BC loves his music and all music!! She kicks her feet while bouncing in her bouncy seat! I have been thinking a lot about Paris...she was so very close to Michael, and I know she misses him terribly. I too hope DN is okay. If you do get in touch with her please tell her I sen my love and hope she will visit here Friday if only for a moment. I know she became disgusted with this place long ago.
Take care Elly. See you Friday.
@ALL, Good Morning and doubting thomas,and others I agree! Lets hold up our 'torches' ,and just march on ,right over those lies ,and window,cleaning ,and fireplace igniting ' tabloids!

I did not visit the NY Post site on a whim...I was reading tweets from mj4justice and they were livid...so I wanted to read for myself the vulgar spew...and my anger got the better of me. Nothing media is safe anymore...even the NY Times will have garbage in it that can be considered repulsive. And yes, that lovely freedom of speech. It works for trash more than for credible journalism. So by reading any media it is supporting tabloidish junk...and so it goes. Maybe someone should visit mj4justice and discourage them from their fight as it is a moot point.
As for that new book of 'Katherine's'...I will not purchase anything MJ anymore as it always seems to support someone's agenda...and who knows what the real deal is with this book or anything else MJ. Michael's children will be well provided for and money is the least of their worries...I think they would be better of without all that evil money and be left alone to live their lives and make their own way in the world. Michael raised them to be strong and independent and they will thrive with or without a huge inheritance.
'I have found that if you love life, life will love you back.'

We will always love you Michael!!!
Red or gold...on stage so bold!!
You were a stunning human being inside and out!!
And you are in a much better place.
Rest in peace sweet Michael.
I will see you Friday...let's jump together!!!!
It is always nice to see your posts. I am hoping you are enjoying the summer and taking well deserved time off. You are a very sweet person. Take care..... (( Hug ))
@ missin MJ
Thank you for your gentle kindness in your post. With so much death, and loss... it is just devastating.
@ Pixie Dust
Beautifully stated and thank you for your kind support. The tragedy tears my heart apart.... We all must stop and ask ourselves ... what are we doing? What are we doing to this beautiful planet with all the abundant life.
Someday in the future, it might not be this way....
What we take for granted today may be a distant memory.........

@ Curious Cat
It's really amazing what all is going on. In fact, there is sooooo much coming in from sooooooo many different directions that it takes a lot of energy and dedication to even "see the show!" I definitely give it a two thumbs up though! Mike, you're the greatest! We love you more! :) :)
Sorry for double posting, it didn´t seem that my first post went thru.
As a tribute to the late king of pop
Lets all pray for him regardless of race, colour, ethnic background or religion and wish him peace on earth or in the hereafter.
CuriousCat June 21st, 2010 1:54 pm ET you posted:
I can't find this comment anywhere on Showbiz411. What topic is it under? Thanks.
I will not be purchasing Katherine's book. Katherine and the children have the allowance from the estate. Howard Mann, has an internet porno game site and Marc Schaffel is a porno film producer. IMO, both men represent an industry that I would not allow in my home to meet my children. For the sake of both Michael Jackson's legacy and his children's lives today and in the future, I frown upon porno being associated with their names today and always.
Hello Baby Carie:
I will answer your questions from your above comment from what I have researched.
@Marguerite- I fully understand.
@Pixie Dust -Thank You.
@Rock With You Horsegirl-Its the thought that counts.
@Rebecka-blessings to you.
Stay Strong and Positive. Celebrate the Message!!!! :) :) :)
Thank to the those on this blog who can read and comprehend what I'm trying to stay.
Stay Strong and Positive. Celebrate the Message!!!!!
Hope is not the conviction that something will turn out well but the certainty that something makes sense, regardless of how it turns out.
I meant "say." -typo
I pressed the "submit" button too soon. Sorry about that. From what I have understood, Marc Schaffel is Katherine's business partner on her book. Howard Mann porportedly will be Katherine's business partner for the unreleased song he purchased from a storage locker that Joe/Katherine did not pay the rent on. It turns out, the 273 unreleased tracks are mostly from a 1975 variety show with the Jackson 5, some from MJ, , and a some with MJ and other singers. The estate will go after Mann for anything MJ as Mann legally cannot release anything with MJ or his name.
IMO, Katherine is not a business woman and she has excellent legal advisors like Streisand, Branca, Weissman, McClain that she could call to get background information on a person prior to establishing a business contract. Her concern should always be to protect the reputation of the children during her lifetime.
Hope you are doing great Carie. I miss you.
Indict Tom Sneddon. If that is done the tabloid media and haters will be forced to face the facts once and for all.
a round of applause i give to you
you took the dare and put me thru
you have given me some love i see
so catch a kiss to you from me
@Rebeka Davis – Recife – Brasil
Please know my thoughts and prayers are with Diego and you.
This is something Michael wrote a long time ago:
Mother Earth, not a Rental Apartment
written by Michael Jackson
I was walking along the beach one winter day. Looking down, I saw a wave push a feather up on the sand. It was a sea gull feather stained with oil. I picked it up and felt the dark slick film on my fingers. I couldn't help wondering if the bird had survived. Was it all right out there? I knew it wasn't. I felt sad to think how carelessly we treat our home. The earth we all share is not just a rock tossed through space but a living, nurturing being. She cares for us; she deserves our care in return. We've been treating Mother Earth the way some people treat a rental apartment. Just trash it and move on. But there's no place to move on to now. We have brought our garbage and our wars and our racism to every part of the world. We must begin to clean her up, and that means cleaning up our own hearts and minds first, because they led us to poison our dear planet. The sooner we change, the easier it will be to feel our love for Mother Earth and the love she so freely gives back to us.
I saw the picture in the article "Chasing the Devastation" here on LKL and I couldn't help but think how much the oil spill looked like blood. And in many ways it really is ..
@ALL, I hope everyone is having a pleasant day !
I wanted to share some info ,on the person who wrote the 'artcile' in the N.Y. Post .Ms Peyser ,can be reaced at (apeyser@nypost .com) and a telephone number is (212 930-8730) I will be sending her an email.And maybe if others wish to ,we can flood her with emails ,phone calls,to let her know ,her unprofessional 'article' was unacceptable.......The squeaky wheel ....gets the grease, as some say '.

I will keep looking
@BABYCARIE- So nice to see you... I hope you'll be "here'" on June 25th, just don't go "there" you might not come back!
@MILA- Mila thank you for posting MJ's humbling words of Mother Earth.. Not a rental apartment. It is simply remarkable, and your comparison of the oil spill & blood shed are very deep & thought provoking... thank you.
@CRIS- CRIS you are going to Gary? Wow, interesting- so am I. I don't have to pack though, I'm not very far. I'm assuming you are going on Friday? What time will you be there, it would be interesting meeting you. Are you aware of any itinerary for Friday? thanks, look forward to your response..

Thank you for the words Mila.
Stay Strong and Positive. Celebrate the Message.
Thank you for your beautiful post. The picture taken from a satellite of the beautiful blue water and what looks like blood red (oil) intertwined within the beautiful blue ocean akin to the blood from our beloved mother earth! ~sigh~ She is, indeed, bleeding……….
Michael was a visionary. He knew that if we do not protect our planet, there will be no hope for anyone or anything. All will be lost…. All will be dead………..
doubtingthomas2010,Thank You for sharing the video you posted,it was such a pleasure to watch.Michael was such an amazing artist, he so deserved to have his name in the Guinness Book Of World Records..It really makes one smile.You think back to the 80's the time of Thriller and how far along Thriller actually traveled,Thriller traveled through the 80's and then through the 90's.Thriller is still here today.People enjoy it today just as much as they did back in the 80's.Yes Michael was remarkable,one of a kind.thanks once again for sharing the video with us all.Sending (Smiles) your way.

This is something Michael wrote a long time ago:
Mother Earth, not a Rental Apartment
written by Michael Jackson
Thank you for this touching article written by Michael. It is so true what he has written and also what you said about the oil in comparing it to blood.
Los Angeles Lakers hero Ron Artest changed his # to 37 because that is how many weeks Thriller remained #1...he is in touch w/the family and is a huge fan...great guy!!!!!
@Susan....I appreciated reading your thoughts re: Mrs Jacksons’s book project.
I think the website for Mrs. Katherine book is interesting. I was wondering how many others noticed the "clue". Unfortunately I have been unable to discern its possible meanings. I hope that compiling the book was cathartic for Mrs. Katherine. I would love to see those never before seen photographs and her commentary about them. I don't think the pictures are compromised, even if some of those apparently involved in the project have allegedly shady reputations. Sadly, it seems that is the way of most business ventures... Anyway, just my thoughts on the matter. Of course, everyone needs to do as their conscience guides them.
I am sure the GAL is looking out for the financial interests of the MJ3. However, with the stress between the Estate and the Jackson Family, I would be surprised if Mrs. Jackson's counsel would want her to consult directly with Branca & Weitzman for advice, though. They would seem to have possibly adverse interests with the probate and estate matters. Generally when one is represented by counsel, one does not directly consult legal counsel on the other side of the issue. Of course this is California, so who really knows what goes on with their Rules of Professional Conduct. *sigh* Hopefully Katherine's legal team is giving her sound advice and they have completed their due diligence in this matter. I am sure she is getting much advice, perhaps even unsolicited, from many directions. Sadly, no matter what she does, it seems like there will always be those to find fault and criticize her, or the rest of the family for that matter. It makes me glad that I never had to deal with the issues that that family and Michael has had to face in their lives the past half century.
I was also intrigued by the comments I came across that Harvey made on TMZ yesterday regarding the way Dr. Murray is conducting himself while awaiting trial. Those comments interested me and I think he made some good points. Interesting perspective. Which begs the question....is Murray the ideal client? Makes me wonder how much preparation he is getting from his legal team and their media people. And how poor, insolvent Dr. Murray can pay for a first rate defense. I wonder just how much Chernoff & Co. has advanced on this matter.
I also wonder how many more years we will have to wait for answers?
Anyway I hope that the original LKL bloggers will be here on the 25th. I would be nice to check in with everyone one year later.

I am like “Orji”, the iroko tree
I have seen winds and waves
I have stood the storms and thunder,
Yet, at my feet lies “Onu-iyi-ama”
The little lovely lake of spring,
Where sits the pond of spring.
Everyday, I see kids come and go,
Happy that they can swim and play.
I am like “Duruejewe”s rock, yes!
I am like the rock of Gibraltar
I have seen the harshest weathers
And the wildest beasts of the jungle,
Yet, at my feet flows the cleanest water,
And everyday, many in need do come,
To stoop and fetch my gifts of spring
Happy that enough does flow for all.
I am like “Ala”, the Earth, yes!
I am the ground on which you stand.
I carry all that is placed on me,
Yet, I bother no one to carry me.
You may try to run the best you can,
A mile or two or a nation far,
I am, and will be there under your feet.
Happy despite your march and pounds.
I am like “Ugbua”, the moment now.
I have seen the past meet the future,
I have seen ages come and go, and
Generations of people born and die.
In me, on me, events take their place.
Yes! I am what time is to change,
I am ageless as well as timeless,
And surely too, I am always there.

My friends thanks!!!!!
I'm happy to have you in my life, I know I'm not alone, thank you for your prayers, thoughts and love sent to all
I showed your comment translated Portuguese to Diego and he smiled a beautiful smile ... Thanks!!
He asked to give a big hug for you too ... He read all the comments and was happy for a moment it seemed that neither was sick ... He said there are many people doing prayers to get well, yesterday at school, the Bible teacher asked him to God for Diego.
Reading her prayer could feel God's presence even stronger by my side
Thank you all for the love
Mila – thank you for posting the gull feather piece that Michael wrote. I took the liberty of posting it on the other CNN article comments:
"The confusing legacy of Michael Jackson". Lots of people spouting their ignorance about Michael in the comments of that article.
everyone wanted to wear the one glove
it became the symbol of the man we love
so i am celebrating with my one true king
and here is a little thank you to him
so first of all i go right back
and listen to a clasic track
we all remember a b c
but whos loving you is the track for me
i really do like all the rest
but thats the one that fits the best
then off the wall and rock with you
shes out of my life and girlfriend to
that whole album what more can i say
except that i love it till this very day
then my gosh thriller came
the sound of music would never be the same
wanna be starting something baby be mine
every single track is divine
thriller by nature thriller by name
25 years later you recorded it again
we are talking bad and i have to say
another album that blew me away
man in the mirror another part of me
smooth criminal i just played them constantly
and once again i waited to see what you would do
you showed us you were dangerous but i already knew
we all know the story so these two tracks lets share
its got to be heal the world and you know we will be there
and then go on to HIStory any track take your pick
but earth song and childhood in my mind will stick
and with blood on the dance floor you really need to listen
its it scary and ghosts was this some sort of mission
now we are at invincible the one they could not sink
maybe they felt threatened and all you did out think
it leaves me feeling speechless an rocks my world as well
i am a true believer in my king i think you all can tell
doubting thomas ,thank you for that evening treat! Yes the number one recording artist in all history ,and most of all ,number ONE ,in our hearts ! May the truth prevail ,Love Maria C.
Susie ,@2;46 yes I wish Mr Sneddon could be indicted ! I agree with you ,Geraldo said a while back ,that Mr Sneddon ,broke all kinds of Laws! Yet he got away ....how can this be? Some feel ,there were some powerful people behind him,and some wonder why Michael was frightened,and had trouble sleeping? How would we feel to believe some one was out to ruin our career ,and slander us,not just in a small town ,but WORLDWIDE! Had Mr.Sneddon won ,it may have drove M.J. to bankruptcy ,then just maybe there would be vineyards in Neverland,and perhaps some others could own the catalogue?
Yes ,there is so much more ,some feel to this than meets the everyday consumer 'eye'......
Some feel there are ;rats in the kitchen',and I hope someone gets 'them'!
Love to you Susie ,Maria C. As Michael sang 'Anything for money',lie for it 'die; for it ,sell your soul ...'
Mila – thank you for posting that gull piece Michael wrote. I took There is another CNN article on Michael today as well and I took the liberty of posting it there as well.
Jermaine to do interview with Larry for Friday...at Forest Lawn...interview conducted today and probably will air on Friday.
Joe's wrongful death suit against Murray...90 day waiting period to file is Friday.
Friday will be a somber day indeed.
Rest in peace sweet Michael.
As always thank you so much for your response and information. The complaint filed by Oxman (UGH!) for Joe regarding wrongful death against Murray stated several times Michael had, among other things, brain swelling. I cannot bare to revisit the autopsy...do you remember brain swelling? I remember basal ganglia calcification, but not brain swelling. The claim also states Michael was disoriented, forgetful, scared and very cold, etc...he must have either hidden this well or those around him were too in awe to see anything. I hope Joe wins to keep Murray form ever cashing in on Michael in any way...books, interviews, etc.
Thanks Susan...I miss you too...
cris- You are very welcome!!! Are you going to Gary as yourself or will you be going as MJ?lol Be sure to have someone take pictures.rofl Love to you my friend and take care. Be sure to take your IPad with you and keep in touch while you are in Gary.
Mila, thank you for posting what Michael wrote about caring for the earth. He is so right because the earth needs to be nurtured and cared for. I think that we take too much for granted. It amazes me to see people who just carelessly litter and pollute the earth and take no responsibility for it. They have the attitude that someone else will clean up after them. We should all feel a personal responsibility to care for the earth and all of it's beauty and never ever take it for granted.
Incidents like the Gulf Of Mexico oil spill should open our eyes to the dangers and risk involved and what we stand to lose because like I've said before, once it's gone there is no getting it back.
I heard recently that the government of Tanzania is proposing to build a highway across the northern portion of the Serengeti in Africa which would then sever a critical wildlife route and interfere with the annual migration. Why can't humans leave nature undisturbed? It seems that we always find a way to disturb the balance of nature in order to profit. I intend to contact Tanzanian government officials to let them know how much I and I know many others would oppose this plan.
I can't believe that they would even consider doing this.
It would have a disruptive influenceon the Serengeti ecosystem and greatly interfere with one of the most wonderful spectacles in the world – the annual migration in the Serengeti..
Doing a major shout out to all the LKL bloggers from back in the day.
See you all Friday as emotions are very high right now.
MMJ be safe on your trip to Gary thank you for taking my thoughts and letters with you it was hard to do. MMJ I hope this time there you actually feel his presence.Sending a angel with you to keep you safe.
Mila thank you for the gull peice it fits so much of what we are going through today lets hope a solution is found and fast.
True that was very nice the words looked like they just flowed from you.Thanks for sharing that missy.
@Pixie Dust & Maria C.- you're welcome.
@Rebeka-Thank you and continued blessings.
Stay Strong and Positive. Celebrate the message.
@judie my friend
you know when it comes to my king

there is only one king that can be number one
the one that has always been on the throne
and in my heart he has a home
and i believe we all feel the same
cos michael jackson is his name
On this Friday June 25th I will also light a candle for ~Michael~ gone too soon. I will celebrate all that I have learned from him and I will cherish all of my memories.He is pure magic when I watch him and there will never be another. I know that some how his star in the sky shines brighter then any other star.
Rest in peace sweet angel and know we will not let go of our dreams of Truth and Justice. The world is missing a true legend and I will never forget you.
RIP KOP xoxo Judie
Hags will be in da house on Friday...it would be great Lori if you could post your poem that you wrote,some people on here never have seen it and it's worth repeating. I can't believe it's been a year.You Lori are one of many that I met here and consider you a dear friend forever.
PUHALKSA IHL TNO (Remember the Time) whuut?
@maria copelli my friend so true
i see you have a problem with a certain rat
well here is a solution i am sure i can fix that
you just send that rat right along to true
and i will call on fidget the only thing to do
cos fidget is a hunter the finest you will find
he will take that rat and tease it scare it out of its mind
he will not be in a hurry he will take his time you see
he will toss that rat stalk that rat and cause it misery
it may go on for hours it could go on for years
and as it is a dirty rat fidget will get some cheers
and when he has finished playing that rat wont be the same
it wont be put out of his misery it will have to live in pain
i think you get the picture of what fidget can do
fidget is a pussy cat believe me this is true
letta,you are very welcome for the smiles,hoping tomorrow is a better day .Sending more (smiles) and hugs to.
A picture I had taken captured my attention by its immediate beauty and somber inclusions of color. After gazing at this photo for a moment I was pleased to see.... what looked like a star in the upper right region of the photo; then astonished suddenly by what appeared to be the image of Michael Jackson, (is the image of Michael Jackson) his black hair, pale face shrouded by a veil. A dark right eye, his light brow, aviator glasses, tilted slightly and positioned down onto his delicate nose. I doubted myself for weeks about what I had seen, but the image continued to reveal the unexpected.
Then tragedy, Michael died...and it became clear this was more than a moment in time or just a phenomenon, but an Obligation. The radiant Hollywood Star to his left is placed perfectly beside his face paying homage to a remarkable entertainer. The star too points to something else. A higher significance exhibiting the alignment of two stars. At the stars highest vertical point rests a promise; bearing the truth in brilliant starburst.
Incredible enough? The photo continues to communicate. Michaels black veil obscures a portion of his lower face, where black overlaps white, a revelation is born below. Michaels life long deity; Charlie Chaplins image is beneath Michael, with a joyful smile supporting him in this photo, during life and in death. Like a true friend in Gods glow. Heaven on Earth.

True-To-you,your poem at 7:11 pm was awesome thanks for sharing,sending (Smiles) your way.
Marguerite,you are quite the character,your comment to cris,oh gee,that was very funny,now I got the giggles.Hope you had a good day Marguerite (Smiles) to you.
@Good night everybody
Ouch ! Tomorrow at 9 p.m Discovery Channel #Argentina Ian Halperin's documentary
Beverly-Chicago,I agree with your post 100%. We all have a responsibility to care for our planet earth.People needlessly toss their garbage where ever they see fit, and then they have the nerve to say how ugly it looks, but yet not willing to do their part.Why can't humans leave nature undisturbed is a good question.What happens is they end up driving the wildlife out of their natural surroundings forcing them to move,Sometimes the wildlife are forced so far out of their habitat, they end up getting a little too close to us humans. It then becomes dangerous to both. animal and human.So I totally understand how you feel and that you want to do your part in trying to put a stop to the highway being built.the wildlife have a right to their surroundings .All the best with that Beverly.Sending (Smiles) your way.
I think katherin should be very carefull with the people around her. now that michael is gone people are going to try to take advantage of her to get to the money ( I call these people, flies around the cake!). she should be more clever then that. those kids depend on her. she should learn from her mistakes and michael's mistakes. she should not easily trust people. I don't understand who is advicing her either. somebody should take care of her and the kids. I don't know what their plan is with those unreleased songs, but I hope katherin makes the right decision. michael's legacy depends on her decision too. what if micheal never wanted to release those songs. what if he was not happy with them.
Katherine is a business woman. She's been in the business for over forty years.
Goodnight .sweet dreams.Stay strong and positive.Sending many (Smiles) your way..
Hi Judie! Thanks for the compliment on my poetry. However, I won't be posting it on the LKL bloggy. I am very hesitant posting any copywritten material on a website or blog that I do not have an ownership interest in. I guess if anyone is interested they will have to stop by the hag house and/or view or purchase the book.
The flower that grows,
so gracious and strong,
Reminds me of him,
singing his beautiful songs,
The petals are shining,
with colours so bright,
The sun is capturing,
every movement in sight,
The flower stands out,
from all of the rest,
The garden bows down,
in honour to the best
Bless You Michael~
Tim Petersen June 22nd, 2010 11:42 pm ET
Touching and beautiful...'Icon in the sky'...I will look that up...thank you.
Agreed...like Michael, Katherine is vulnerable and easily taken advantage of. It has nothing to do with their business saavy, but with their vulnerability...not the same thing. Katherine has been abused by Joe for years and I believe he is in there trying to pull strings. And Katherine was not into the business side of the family...she was the caregiver and support system. Did you see the Tom Mesereau tribute to Michael? Beautiful.
I thought this was pretty cool...Los Angeles Lakers hero Ron Artest changed his # to 37 because that is how many weeks Thriller remained #1...he is in touch w/the family and is a huge fan of Michael...great guy!!!!! He was distraught by Michael's death.
Friday marks one year since Michael died. Michael died and the message is clear and straight from Randy's mouth...be Michael's voice, the voice he no longer has...carry on with humanitarian works...make that change to help create a better world for our children.
Mila...thank you so much for that piece by Michael. My husband is going back to the gulf next week. I am nervous for him but he needs to go and do something....he said it is devastating. The oils is like blood and the blood is on BP's hands...such a tragedy.
Wish all a beautiful day full of love, peace and laughter.
"You never know how strong you are, until being strong is the only choice you have."
Stay strong this week.
@ALL, Good day to everyone,and lots of wildflowers and sunshine! '
True to You'! I enjoyed that rhyme ,now sit down with some tea ,and please read mine!
'Because of you I am not blue!
Because 'Fidgets' on the case ,and he knows just what to do!'
Thank you ,and may all the Rats ' be trapped ,yes Justice for Michael,will be done........Thank you True ! Love Maria C.smile.........
doubting thomas @1;17a.m. Some would agree Katherine is very smart ,and has many yrs of business dealings behind her ,I am sure she is getting the very best counsel! She is such a pretty lady !
I wanted to share Jodi Gomes tweet from last nite,if you dont mind!?
'I see hurt (in regards to M.j.'s fans) but stay hopeful because the greatest entertainer of all time is finally resting safely'.
There were alot of tweets to her last nite ,and she did such a great job on the J5 Series ,I hope there is more to come,I remeber in one of the last episodes ,they were looing at a stage ,and told the guy in charge something like ,'oh no ! We will need a much bigger stage than this ,we're the Jacksons'! etc etc .....Tito is on tour ,and Jodi has posted some pics of him performing with his band .It was nice to see Tito with his band ,also Jodi is appauled at the article written ,by Ms.Peyser ! and there is an online form ,showing our 'disliking ' lets say of her recent 'trashy article ' on M.J.! anyway ,i am not so technocal to post some of Jodis Tweets ,but she really is a good friend of The Jacksons ,you can clearly see that !
Love to you ,Maria C.once again I see some typos ,! please forgive my mistakes! Maria
heigh ho heigh ho its off to work we go
the circle of life is ours you know
i have a fairytale for you
a reflection on what we can do
when you wish upon a star
a golden dream wont be to far
with a smile and a song someones waiting for you
there is a great big beautiful tomorrow this could be true
perfect isnt easy be prepared to wait
a dream is a wish your heart makes
you are never to old to be young whoever you are
a whole new world when you wish upon a star
goodbye may seem forever why should i worry
the bare necessities in life will come no need to hurry
the age of not believing no i am one jump ahead
listen with your heart follow the leader instead
remember the magic true to your heart
the second star to the right is where we will start
just give a little whistle youve got a friend
and the colours of the wind to you i will send
do you believe that elephants can fly
well some believe a king did die
i believe i will be there its all for love love is free
Katherine had a production company. She produced many specials, shows. That is a fact. The smartest businessmen have made bad decisions and no one questions their vulnerability. No one would be doubting her decision if they didn't hear about who her business partners were. In the end, that is for her to deal with.
missingMJ- great quote.
Thank you. When I saw this quote I couldn't help but to think of Michael and what he has endured through his life. Now we also must be strong too, and ye,s celebrate his message!
@ALL, Good Afternoon to you All! I just wanted to let everyone know Rebeka (Brasil) Her son has Dengue ,it is contracted fron mosquitos,he is in a very good hospital in Recife ,and his older Brother is keeping him smiling ! They will get results ,back soon to show his progress, so if we can remember to keep her and little Diego ,in our prayers ,and thoughts it would be so apprecaited ! Remember the 'Ants' if they help each other ,then so can we! smile....Love to each and every one of you today .Maria C.
doubting thomas ,you are right -on ! And thank you for letting your light continue to shine! Love Maria C.
Letta please have a nice day ,and keep sipping that o.j.! Love Maria C.
Pixie ! Keep us smiling ,and have anice sunfilled day ! Love Maria C.
JOE ( shameless pig ) JACKSON at it AGAIN – National Enquirer
MICHAEL JACKSON's children are being being shamelessly exploited by their grandfather, JOE JACKSON, who plans to trot them out for cash on the anniversary of his son's death, charges a source close to the family.
In a heartless grab for money, Joe Jackson, who was cut out of his son's will, intends to put Michael's three grief-stricken children on display and charge the public up to $5,000 to gawk at them, say shocked insiders.
What's more, the Jackson patriarch is desperately trying to reconcile with his estranged wife Katherine to get his hands on the superstar's fortune, say pals of the late singer.
"I think Joe's desperate to get at Michael's money,and he intends to exploit the children and make peace with Katherine in order to cash in," a close family friend told The ENQUIRER.
To mark the June 25 anniversary, the family plans an official tribute at Forest Lawn cemetery where Jacko is entombed. The event is free to the public.
"But I am sure Joe smelled a potential fortune, so he spearheaded his own event," said another family insider.
"His plan is to trot out the kids at a separate VIP gala – and he wants to charge fans up to $5,000 to meet the children and pose with them for pictures. And I believe the proceeds will go to him."
Michael's children – Prince, 13, Paris, 12, and Blanket, 8 – each inherited a staggering $33 million to be overseen by their grandmother.
Michael left nothing to his father, nothing to his brothers Jermaine, Jackie, Tito, Marlon and Randy, nothing to sisters Janet, La Toya and Rebbie and nothing to ex-wives Lisa Marie Presley and Debbie Rowe.
"Since Joe can't touch the kids' money, he wants to use them to raise cash," said the source.
"He personally cobbled together a June 26 'tribute' and booked The Beverly Hilton hotel and plans to display some of Michael's personal effects.
"Joe is confident he can charm Katherine, the youngsters' legal guardian, into letting him take them to the gala – where he will be selling the opportunity to meet them."
Tickets to the event start at a hefty $150 – and Joe also stands to make thousands by selling the face-to-face meetings.
"It is shameless exploitation," fumed the source.
@maria c my friend so true

doubtingthomas2010,Strong and positive,always.(Smiles) to you.
@ TRUE-TO -YOU
Yes, it is time for this to happen because "The Man" deserves no less than this.
NOW...THAT is a reputable magloid...National Enquirer!! I would not train a dog on that trash!!!
DN!!!!!!!!!!! I miss you here so much!! A voice for Michael and sanity!!!
Friday...Michael will be dead on year...we need your voice here!!!!
Katherine nor Michael were business people...Michael was an entertainer who after being managed by Joe had other people help him manage....and poorly for the most part. Even Tom Mesereau attested to that!
he is not just an entertainer we all know
he is the one that runs this show
you think he has no business skill
come on wake up do get real
dont ever underestimate the man
cos if something needs doing yes he can
Diana77,thank you kindly for sharing the link to Michael the humanitarian tribute song.It was very beautiful.The children just seemed to love Michael, not all the children may of even known who he really was but they could feel his love and compassion that he had for them.They knew Michael was a kind soul.Michael could seem to put a smile on any child's face.That would of made Michael very happy I am sure.As far as Michael being called Peter Pan,well to me that is an awesome name to to have,yes Michael was a child at heart,those that are young at heart seem to enjoy life more.That to me is an important aspect of life.One should enjoy life cause life can be beautiful.Thanks again for sharing (Smiles) to you.
There is nothing impossible to him who will try.
Hello my friend, Thank you caring. Well, I do feel much better today, but no o.j. for me too hot here. Drinking ice tea to help me get through the day with this dang heat. LOL Thank you for caring...hugs, love & Blessings to you. Letta
Hello my friend. Hope everything is fine with you miss you yesterday. I know you were looking for you daily word for today sorry about that my friend was too sick to do it this early morning but I am still thinking of you so here it goes.
O God of peace, when has taught us that in returning and rest we shall be saved, in quietness and confidence shall be our strength: By the might of Thy Spirit lift us, we pray Thee, to Thy presence, where we may be still and know that Thou art God; through Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen
*** hope that you enjoy Angie Pie.
Love, Hugs & Blessing my friend. Letta
This Is it, your poem at 6:05 am was most excellent thanks for sharing,(Smiles) to you
Thanks for sending the tribute song Petr Pan"...truly beautiful. There is another on you tube by Henry Gorman called "Billie Jean Is Waiting". Beautiful as well.......I think we should call our local radio stations and ask them to play ONLY Michael ALL day on Friday...and these 2 tribute songs would be great.
I'm sorry I don't believe anything that comes out of the National Enquirer. I'm not saying the accusations on Joe isn't true BUT the Enquirer is known for blowing stories out of poportion, exaggerating and at times printing complete lies. Any tabloid or publication that continues to disrespects Michael by referring to him as "Jacko" has nothing credible or nothing of interest for me. JMO
I do not go alone through the hourly of this day, for Thou art with me.
One of the sanest, surest most generous joys of life comes from being Happy over the good fortune of others.

"Using Michael Jackson's Legacy to Open Can of Whoop Ass on Youth Work Ethic "
Posted: June 23, 2010 10:13 AM By Asley Wren Collins
Business people and people who know how to manage money are two different things. The definition of a good business person is one who can make a profit, save some and pay your bills.
Late 1990's, Katherine & Joe filed $25 million bankruptsy.
MJ has financially supported them for over 9 years.
Joe is broke.
Katherine is getting an allowance and currently paying against a $10 to $11 million dollar debt per her new business partner Howard Mann.
MJ & LaToya put the Encino house in their names to avoid it's foreclosure.
Thank you very much for providing the radaronline website. I will read it now. Enjoy your day.
You said it all, Michael was extremely brilliant, and a very "savvy" business man, i.e., Sony Catalog anyone ?
I wouldn't be shocked if we heard one day that Michael actually OWNS Sony.
He out-smarted them, and we soon will see who else he was able to "out-smart"
doubtingtomas2010, thank you for sharing the video Of The Jackson 5,I absolutely loved it,Michael and his brothers are just so amazing.Can most certainly put a smile on ones face..Thank you kindly.Sending many (smiles) your way.
letta, it is so nice to read you beautiful quotes,thank you so much.You to can make me smile thank you.Sending many (Smiles) your way.
Purple haze, nice quote once again and is so true.(Smiles) to you.
Watched a video last night of Michael getting into the "Guiness Book"
he was only 24 years old @ the time, he said he had been in the business 20 years already, but felt he was "just getting started" he sure was, what an understatement !!!!
Now we know "The Best IS Yet to Come"
The Greatest Show on Earth coming to a town near you
Pat Davis! Hello ,and good to see you ! I hope you are enjoying your day.
I totally agree with you ,on the Enquirer,no not reputable at ALL! As we all know and feel.One thing that I do find coencidental ,is how in Dec of 2009 ,they said M.J. would be 'dead' or words to that effect ,and coencidentally he 'was'. That is rather.....odd .
This will be the 'week' the money hungry 'media whores' will strut their stuff ,in a manner of speaking! So this is a grand opportunity ,to show the world ,'We have Had Enough.' And will not support them in any manner ,it was them ,and the 'Powers' that be ,those of immense wealth ,.power and Yes Men ,who set out to try to ruin Michaels Life,His career ,and his good name ,and reputation!
Now is the time for the Truth to Prevail! And I believe with all my heart ,it will! Indicting Mr.Sneddon ,some say would be a part of this justice !
Love Maria C.
how is your seasonal....McDonalds holding up lol...
Hello to everyone..
A friend of mine asked someone who was very close and worked with Michael right up until he passed away about him having a clone. This was his response: 'I have known Michael for over 20 years and that story has no truth to it whatsoever.' 'It is an outright lie'. 'Don't believe half of what you read and hear about Michael, most of it isn't true anyway.' He began to laugh then said 'if Michael had a clone than I'm the Pope.'
National Enquirer may not be "reputable" but the story sounds just like something "JOE" would do.
So many articles and things happening, I can't wait to see what's next, let the show BEGIN !! or should I say let the show "CONTINUE"
Michael learned of the Sony catalog via Paul McCartney...he outbid Paul because he had the capital. Branca is in the process of trying to keep the catalog with the estate for the children.
Michael was brilliant but not a business manager...and that is the truth. I am not an enabler...it is what it is.
National Enquirer....I laugh at that rag!!!!!!!
letta (believe) thank you for posting the video,of the MMJ justice campaign.Yes it is very important for people to watch.Hopefully it will open their eyes.Thanks for sharing letta.(Smiles) to you.
You are very welcome. Just felt that people need to see this video. Glad to do this,
Hugs, Love & Blessings Letta
Michael Jackson bought ATV Music Publishing in 1985 which included 250 Lennon/McCartney songs, as well as 100's of songs by Elvis, Little Richard, Pointer Sisters, etc.
In 1995 Michael merged (not sold) his ATV Music catalog with Sony and created Sony/ATV Music Publishing, making it the 3rd largest Publishing Co in the world. Michael retains 50% owbership in the new company. Sony has publishing rights, but Michael OWNS the music.
All of Michael's songs belong to his Mijac Music Publishing and are not affected by the deal with Sony.
Very smart businessman, he knew exactly what he was doing. Sony has always wanted the rights to the music, and to this day, they are still trying to get them, who knows what they would do to get it !!!!!
Curious Cat well done with your info! Michael was very smart and observant,he would not have gotten ahead ,by being a' dumdum' junkie ,as those uninformed ones believe !
He always reads to educate himself and was known to have an 'inquisitve ' way !
Thank you so much ,and the best is yet 'to come' ...Love Maria C.
no, I did not see tom's tribute. I will search it. should be interesting. by the way I just sent an email to DN. Hopefully she will answer.
cris- Hold your head up my friend and don't let the posters get to you. Love to you and take care. Keep in touch while you are in Gary.
One evening whilst at the dining table, McCartney brought out a booklet displaying all the songs to which he owned the publishing rights. He explained that music publishing was a way to make big money. Jackson replied by telling McCartney that he would buy The Beatles' songs one day. "Great. Good joke", McCartney laughed.
Shortly afterward, John Branca, Jackson's attorney, advised the singer that the Northern Songs catalogue was up for sale. Warned of the competition he would face in buying such popular songs, Jackson remained resolute in his decision to purchase them. Branca approached McCartney's attorney to query whether the Beatle was planning to bid. The attorney stated he wasn't; it was "too pricey". McCartney had previously attempted to purchase Northern Songs alongside John Lennon's widow, Yoko Ono in 1981 for $20 million; the pair would each pay $10 million. Ono refused as she thought it was too high a price. Not wanting to spend the $20 million himself, McCartney let the sale fall through. After months of negotiating, Branca closed the deal and purchased Northern Songs on Jackson's behalf for $47.5 million.
At the time, McCartney was one of the richest entertainers in the world, with a net worth of $560 million and a royalty income of $41 million. Jackson stated, "If he didn't want to invest $47.5 million in his own songs, then he shouldn't come crying to me now".
Branca was the one who assisted Michael with the SONY catalog deal, and Michael held out because he wanted to one up Paul McCartney and to gain ownership in the Beatle's songs in addition to the money aspect of the deal. McCartney had very poor judgement at the time, and due to his flip and cheap attitude, and Branca's actions, Michael acquired the catalog.
That catalog brought nothing but heartache to Michael...I wish McCartney would have bid and won...Michael would be here today.
A good word is an easy obligation; but not to speak ill requires only our silence, which costs us nothing.
Purple Haze,most amazing quote.and very true.(Smiles) to you.
@ALL ,good morning ,and it is a difficult morning to get thru ,with Michaels music being played Respectfully 'on the radio stations,but we will still hold up those troches ,we must !
Going along with the catalogue ,thoughts ,it is said they are worth over 1.9 billion dollars ,and growing ,as E Cassanove said ,all Michale has to do is 'breathe ' and there is money made from the catalogue ,when one considers the world wide sales ,from this catalogue,there are hundreds of artists ,on there.
So some feel this may be the motivation,of some unpleasant ,thinking towards Michael. Michale as we recall ,lived at home until he was 29 (not 100% sure) but he was at home,for all those yrs ,so thus he had quite a subsatantial savings and earnings .Michael was no fool,not a drug addict ,not a Fool! there is no way one can reach his degree of international success by being oblivious to the 'Industry ',etc,etc,etc. Michael sought help for his addictions,and I am sure he was not a 'drug addict ' at the time of his 'death'.This is my humble opinion ,based on a lot of research .
I share this with you All today ,because simply put ,it makes me feel as if I am here for my Brother .The truth will prevail. And it will be avery happy occasion!
I Love you All,Maria Copelli
