Ladies, YOU'RE KILLING ME!! When the comments reach about 100, I will try to post a new blog-that takes about 1 day now!! But keep posting away. 99% are great, and we really don't worry about the other 1%. Believe me!! Here's the Scoop. A new "Special Newsletter" is coming tomorrow. If you attended the impromptu meeting last Sunday morning in Chicago, you'll know what I am referring to. One of the main themes was "How can we have more men attend some of the events, like Manhattan Beach or Chicago, or the cruise to Alaska next summer, and many other events we have planned??" You will see some fantastic new pages on tomorrow, and the ball is in YOUR court now. Joe and I have established the structure. You will read how you can make this happen. Best wishes, Richard Roe

PS- From Joe. We'll keep the previous post open for your comments as well.

Great Richard! We can't wait to find out the scoop. Since we can't clone you, it will be nice for these wonderful ladies to have other opportunities to meet their soulmate. I am sure you are cooking up something great. I am anxiously awaiting the "12" names. Oh, I hope my mom-in-law is one of them. :)

thanks RICHARD, and thanks CLICKGIRL... i'm housebound today, with too much time on my hands...but, point well taken: and i will NOT sweat the small stuff!! shut the last blog off just as i was editing this post...i will try not to ignore the other 1% of the comments, just as i will try NOT to BE the other 1% -- o.k. richard baby, bring on the men!

did not proof read previous comment very well, should read: "...will TRY to ignore the other 1%, " etc. and hope that i am NOT the OTHER 1%...100 years from now all that will matter is that i was able to spread joy and love...looking forward to seeing the 12 names published...HURRY UP!! my Curiosity is getting the better of me,

p.s. clickgirl - just saw a story about a guy with no legs who has special prosthetic feet made for him so that he can go mountain climbing!!! -- some people really are amazing...

U 12, keep your eyes on the gold ring (ops, another maloprop, i think that should be brass ring...oh never MIND! U know what i mean)

Aloha ROEMANCIN' ROEmeo..jOE....UmbertO;) Posse and Bloggettes!

DRAGONFLYFILLY: I have never been inside a Sweat Lodge, sat outside and waited with a Medicine Woman/Friend who is Meti. I was so surprised when she too said that she has never been inside one. I lived with her for well over a year observing the ancient ways as she lives traditionally, only thing missing was the TEEPEE:) One learns a lot in the silence, there were times that she would not talk for hours, I'd feel restless and have to find something to do:) I refer to it as an 'apprenticeship' of sorts!
She shared many Sacred Stories with us in Circle on Sunday nights. She told me my Heart is half Hebrew and Half Aboriginal! It makes sense as I learn from both. My 'Judaic Soulfood' is drawn from the wellspring of the teachings of the Kabbalah and to balance I connect to Mother Earth Energy. I refer to it my 'As Above, So Below'
Well to get back to 'The Scoop' and stay in 'The Loop':) let us see what our 'Leading Man' and 'rangers' have in store for the bloggettes:) I so look forward to a Cruise with this crowd, afterall we are establishing 'kindred spirit' connections here!
I am still 'locked into Cruise Control'

dragonflyfilly Just read your comments and am so happy that I didn't offend you. I love your "Spirit Cloud" picture on your site and I really think you do such a great job on your pages that you certainly don't need any help from me. Your picture with the wings behind you are adorable.

Dreamweaver I thought I had read sometime ago that you were from Toronto. Looks like we have quite a few lovely ladies from Canada. I know we're all going to be on pins and needles until we hear what the scoop is.

RichardI mean really, you just can't drop something like that in a woman's lap and expect her to be patient. Now I'm going to have to take sleeping pills to sleep tonight.

I wonder what time the newsletter will be out - and what Richard means that the ball is in our court now? I hope it doesn't cost me anything. LOL

Just when I was tring to catch up on the blog from Friday with 123 postings, along came two more... so if I may, I'd like to comment on some of those postings...

dreamweaver18 AKA Val the Gal

Oops! I forgot to mention that I don't speak Dutch! But I did understand your note and I printed it out for my mother to read to me (just to be sure I didn't miss anything)
Ik begrijp alleen een klein beetje...het allerbeste
Good choice in music...Aerosmith

The Mickey Mouse incident sounds like something we'd expect from our Nancy... ;) You're such a cute couple...Keeps life interesting and fun doesn't it?

Merry Mary
I hope your sister feels better soon. I have heard that shingles can be very painful...

Jayne AKA janiegirl
Glad to hear that you found the earthquake info interesting. Like you, I learn something from these blogs every day...Are we ready for Jeopardy ladies?

Was it me that said Denver is beautiful this time of year? Well, it is if you like 20" of snow...I spoke to my son yesterday and 2 days ago it was 82 degrees and now it's snowing...and they expect the temps to rise back up to the 70's by the end of the week.

DREAMWEAVER, DESERTFLOWERS...thanks for your positive and uplifting comments...yes, i feel really fortunate to have met the person who photographed "Spirit Cloud",,as i said her husband was in one of my Human Resources courses at college.

i went back to school in Chilliwack, a very conservative suburb of the GVRD...I really learned a lot as a large portion of my class mates were First Nations people - at first it was very disconcerting the way they are so quiet...not saying much, just listening and observing...i was also extremely blessed to have as one of my practicum supervisors a very strong and wise first nations woman from the Sto'lo band...she taught me a lot...and now, at work, one of my best friend's is first nations...and she keeps me in line...she just has to look at me and i know what she is thinking: "'re talking too much.." hah, hah, she is so kool.

a friend of mine on Gabriola attends "Moon Lodges" these are for 'women only' - one day i may attend one of these

I think when RR says the ball is in "your court" he wants to be chased, lol...that is what that expression tennis, you receive the ball, then when it lands in your court you have to hit it there, it means the decision is YOURS! - if you see what i mean...

yes, i certainly feel the 'kindred spirit connection' - it is very nice, eh..

Kitty is hanging around my chair, meowing and touching my arm with her paw, better go and see if she needs food or clean water...or maybe she is telling me it it TIME FOR ME TO BE SILENT FOR AWHILE. Yes?

Sweet Dreams, everyone,
a.k.a. "Shewolf Who Runs Wild In The Neighbourhood" lol

p.s. 40/30, Advantage Richard! lol

Well good evening Richard, Joe and my friends of the blog..
wow sounds like the time is growing near..

Richard you do not have an easy job
as we all have known from the beginning!

there is no advice I can give you.
I would have liked to have suggested that you follow your heart, go with your 1st instinct.
but I am certain, that, that has been confused and changed so many times, you can't remeber what that was, I know the feeling, I have been there a time or two. just a feeling I have about you. Now you probably have a headache, another neckache, shoulders, and your lower back.

my only comments would be I wish I had gotten the chance to meet you in person.
soon I will be off living in the real world again, maybe who knows, climbing into another upside down van again..
but at any rate I do want to say thank you for allowing me to share such a wonderful journey with all of you. I have grown and learned from this experience, I, even though do not know any you in person have met some of the most beautiful women through blogging, and am very blessed to be able to call them friends.
Thank you.

Sending Hugs to you All,
Have a Wonderful Night

To laugh is to risk appearing a fool.
To weep is to risk appearing sentimental.
To reach out for another is to risk involvement.
To expose feelings is to risk rejection.
To place your dreams before the crowd is to risk ridicule.
To love is to risk not being loved in return.
To go forward in the face of overwhelming odds is to risk failure.

But RISKS must be taken because the greatest hazard in life is to RISK NOTHING.
The person who risks nothing DOES NOTHING. HAS NOTHING, IS NOTHING.
He may avoid suffering and sorrow, but HE CANNOT LEARN, FEEL, CHANGE, GROW OR LOVE. Chained by his attitudes, he is a slave. He has forfeited his freedom. ONLY A PERSON WHO TAKES RISKS IS FREE.

Richard, relieve yourself of blog worries from your chickadees and give your heart a chance to sort through the last few weeks of flurry. It'll tell you what you need to to do and don't let anyone rush you as even the six trips can just become preludes to the future,you might have to take more and that would be alright, wouldn't it? My best to you with all of this, Lynn in Sacramento

Good morning chickadees and RR and Joe and Umbreto. This is the day the Lord has made...Let us rejoice and be glad in it. I love that song. Gets you going. Flowergirl,
thank you for The Dilemia. That is so true and on a level I can understand. Some of this stuff is beyond my walnut size computer brain. I finally caught Joe's Mickey mouse after someone said Nancy was naked and pg and mashed against the shower door.....Cute, cute. I'm not pg and I could probably do it. Willy, thanks for your concern about my sister. I haven't talked to her yet this morning but will and will let you know. I am sooo close to her. She's like a second Mom.I don't know what I'd do without her. My kids call her my sisterMom. Willemina ,you are the most nicest lady in the world...a saint. If not you have me fooled. I was one of the lucky ones at the meeting last Sun. and yes. Richard has wonderful plans for the future. He is concerned for us all. He said he loved us all and I believe he truly does..... He said it with humility. Like I said...I wish it was legal for bigamy and we'd all marry him....Just kidding. Take care and have a bright sunshinny day even if it's rainning, which it's supposed to do here in Tulsa. Much Love to all, Ms. Mary

Joe and I have been working feverishly to get the Newsletter out today. There are some new, terrific pages going on the site, and this takes the webmaster and the technician time to put it all properly on the site. I had no idea how much work running a very active website is! Joe handles most of that with 2 other men who are based in Chicago. We also have consultants!! Anyway, I think you will love the new pages and the Special Newsletter. Hint: It is about MEN!!!!! RR

Morning to all.........I haven't blogged in quite sometime hope are all happy and healthy.

Desertflower your waiting with bells on your toes, I think I broke my toe yeserday. Went out on a cruise of the Delta with some friends. I layed out on the bow to get some sun, then decided to polish the railing. While doing so I was being a "goober" and tried an old gymnastics trick......cramed the two outside right toes on my right foot.....that was a big ouchie. So I too am waiting with something on my toes however, it isn't bells, it is a real pretty blue, black and purple color *grinning*

So where is the "cut" list going to be posted and when? Anyone? I am sure it states the information someplace on the site, however, I am too lazy to search. Maybe I read we will eadch be receiving e-mail's? Besides being tool lazy to search I have a 10 am at the driving range and a 2 pm work-out at the gym.

Well, may the best women (the cream of the crop; and what a harvest it was!) represent us all! It was fun getting at least this far!!!

Richard, if you ever decide to write a book on this experience you will probably be on the best-seller's list *grin*.

Just wondering Richard, would you do this all over again? If so, would you change any of the things you did, or how you did them?

Well continue your happy hunting.

Jerri from the "other" Illinois said...

I almost came to the blog at 2 o'clock this morning to tell everyone, "I did it! I did it! I did iiiiiit! I diiiiiiid iiiiiit!"

I've been busy since I came home from Chicago trying to put all the pictures from my camera on a CD that will play on the T.V.! I DID IT! Finished at 2 this morning!! It is pretty good with music in the background. It starts with a wonderful image of the globe and travel. I took lots of pictures at the Silly Hat party and quite a few on the Odessy. I also took the pictures from the blog and added them. I just emailed RedTbird what I did on her blog because I saw she did a neat job of putting her pictures on her blog. I hope you or someone here can help me with my own blog.

I would like to make the video available to all of you-Not asking for anything but friendship. I want us to stay in touch. Looking forward to the cruise next year but would like to know some of you better before we take off. I remember people well but have a hard time with names. I don't know if it is age, my daughter says, "Join the club Mom!"

I have not been successful with my blog. I have an account but for some reason keep getting booted off. Maybe it is my computer, the software, who knows. I don't understand these things but have been giving it a heck of a try! My car is in the garage after being rear ended so, I've spent my time since the wonderful Senior Bachelor event in Chicago trying more on the computer.

Joe, you asked for suggestions for Richard in making his decision! All I can say is, "God bless him." I would not want to be in his shoes. I have two favorite words, one is Swahili, "Namaskar" meaning, "the good in me salutes the good in you." The other is "Namaste'", Indian Sanskrit meaning the light in me respects the light in you." I believe Richard has the goodness, and intelligence that exists in all to do what he set out to do. I have respect for him.

He put himself under a lot of pressure. I will keep afirming he has the ability to do what is right for him. (That is what he needs to do beyond the senior movement.) I am spiritual, embracing all world religions and believe strongly in a higher intelligence that connects us all. Richard will do just fine.

For Richard. Relax into it and know that everything will come out the way it was meant to be in the end. I wish you love, peace, and fun for the rest of your life. I think your are working to that end.
Until you are through this, take time to do some deep breathing.

Back to my lady friends: If you would like me to include your pictures on my video you can scan them (your picture with Richard on the Odessy) or download them from your camera and email them to Or, if you know how, put them on your blog and give me permission to save them to my computer. That would be the easiest thing if you know how to do it!! I don't or, I would be doing it!
Namaskar (I salute the good in you)
Namaste' (The light in me salutes the light in you) to all my new friends.

Good morning all...I think Richard's comment "Get the ball rolling" was from the Sunday session where lightbulbs went on in our heads that Richard means what he said about the "Mistress". I think it will tell us how to 1. get more men involved. 2. get the media's attention and 3. get sponsors, I.E. dove, viagra,see's chocolates, etc.....It's a win win situation for all of us. I was so glad I didn't sleep in on Sunday morning. I did nap on the underground.....P.S. Please pray for my sister, Sharon....I was gleefully telling her about my weekend Sunday night and at the end she said. "I am sick" I said the flu, cold, what. And then she said she had not been out of bed for a week, the blood test came back with enlarged red blood cells and they are doing more test this week. She is 8 years younger than me, we were separated as children and she has become the one person I can share my hopes, dreams and secrets with. I believe in Prayers. Thank you. Karen

I have said all along that each lady should bring at least two guy friends to all the up coming events, like the cruise, the parties, etc... that way there are plenty of men to meet. We all know at least 2 men who are wonderful but just not our type.

I would be proud to introduce some of my guy friends to the many wonderful ladies I have met along this journey.

Looking forward to hearing the new news,and seeing the new pages to the newsletter.

Hi Richard I've just been perusing the new pages - for men and photos. Good job! I haven't the time right now to look at all the photos, but I did notice one that would make a great "caption contest." You're sitting beside a lovely lass from Ladner (MOI) with your eyes down but with a bit of a grin on your face. Hmmmm.... j/k
Also, I noticed your first poll. How about adding a third option - either/both. I must dash - today is my afternoon to teach French to Gr 5,6,7s and I have a few chores to attend to before I get to school. Will check in again later. Caio for now :D

Hello Ladies,

I too am wondering if Richard has already contacted the ladies he selected.

In Chicago I met a lady from New Orleans now based in Houston that worked as a diversity specialist for Shell Oil. She didn't have any business cards with her at the time so I am not sure of her name. I would like to get in touch with her. Can anyone help me out?

Dear Richard, Staff and Friends,

Listening to the children:

What does Love mean?

Slow down for three minutes to read this. It is so worth it.

Touching words from the mouth of babes.

A group of professional people posed this question to a group of 4 to

8 year-olds, "What does love mean?"

The answers they got were broader and deeper than anyone could have imagined. See what you think:

"When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn't bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That's love."

Rebecca- age 8

"When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth."

Billy - age 4

"Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other."

Karl - age 5

"Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs."

Chrissy - age 6

"Love is what makes you smile when you're tired."

Terri - age 4

"Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK."

Danny - age 7

"Love is when you kiss all the time. Then when you get tired of kissing, you still want to be together and you talk more. My Mommy and Daddy are like that. They look gross when they kiss"

Emily - age 8

"Love is what's in the room with you at Christmas if you stop opening presents and listen." Bobby - age 7 (Wow!)

"If you want to learn to love better, you should start with a friend who you hate," Nikka - age 6 (we need a few million more Nikka's on this planet)

"Love is when you tell a guy you like his shirt, then he wears it everyday." Noelle - age 7

"Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they know each other so well." Tommy - age 6

"During my piano recital, I was on a stage and I was scared. I looked at all the people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling. He was the only one doing that. I wasn't scared anymore."Cindy - age 8

"My mommy loves me more than anybody . You don't see anyone else kissing me to sleep at night." Clare - age 6

"Love is when Mommy gives Daddy the best piece of chicken."Elaine-age 5

"Love is when Mommy sees Daddy smelly and sweaty and still says he is handsomer than Robert Redford." Chris - age 7

"Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day." Mary Ann - age 4

"I know my older sister loves me because she gives me all her old clothes and has to go out and buy new ones." Lauren - age 4

"When you love somebody, your eyelashes go up and down and little stars come out of you." (what an image) Karen - age 7

"You really shouldn't say 'I love you' unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget." Jessica - age 8

And the final one -- Author and lecturer Leo Buscaglia once talked about a contest he was asked to judge. The purpose of the contest was to find the most caring child.

The winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife. Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.

When his Mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said, "Nothing, I just helped him cry"
