    This text is meant to assist all those of you, readers, to inform yourself and to come to a conclusion that is founded on clear discernment, knowledge. I’ve shared the content with numerous people and organisations, in the US, the United Kingdom and The Netherlands. Here's a tiny library I'm sharing below a video related to this comment. It's valuable to study scientific resources as well as reports from those working in the medical system testifying their experiences in real life, with human beings, patients. And to study patient's stories, hear their testimonies. 💎 The year 2020 has offered us numerous testimonies from doctors and nurses, related to the C-19 virus. Censorship is enormous on THmy, the BBC, and I'm sure in The Netherlands, where I am now, censorship is present as well. 💎 Numerous courageous healthcare workers lost their job, and doctors were forced to shut down their practice. We've got a large group of healthcare workers called "Doctors for truth" in The Netherlands. Eelke de Klerck is the spokeswoman. Here's her announcement @t Somewhat similar to "The American Frontline Doctors" with Simone Gold as spokeswoman. You will find much of this online. Find the list of free speech social media for yourself I suggest. 💎 Next to Simone Gold's testimonies, there's Judy A. Mikovits, a virologist who has presented her "AFFIDAVIT REGARDING SARS-COV-2" here: @t Some more recommendations: 💎 THE MESSAGE OF THE GEORGIA GUIDESTONES 1. Maintain humanity under 500,000,000 in perpetual balance with nature. 2. Guide reproduction wisely - improving fitness and diversity. 3. Unite humanity with a living new language. 4. Rule passion - faith - tradition - and all things with tempered reason. 5. Protect people and nations with fair laws and just courts. 6. Let all nations rule internally resolving external disputes in a world court. 7. Avoid petty laws and useless officials. 8. Balance personal rights with social duties. 9. Prize truth - beauty - love - seeking harmony with the infinite. 10. Be not a cancer on the earth - Leave room for nature A little about the construction and purpose, with interpretations of the writer. The Georgia Guidestones are a mysterious structure, and therefore lots of interpretations and conclusions have shown up through the years. Will we find the true purpose one day? @t 💎 Andrew Wakefield's article in The Lancet on MMR vaccination and autism Sept. 11 1999 @t This article is withdrawn by The Lancet in 2010: @t 💎 The book "The Poisoned Needle: Suppressed Facts About Vaccination" 1956, by Eleanor McBean M.D., N.D. (shows the many dangers of vaccinations, manipulated statistics throughout history, how polio arose, and the nature of virus and disease.) 💎 Jeff G. - Viral Misconceptions - Presentation on The True Nature of Viruses Jeff G's website: @t @ Quote related to the vaccination program worldwide, one of the slides in Andrew Wakefield’s presentation Andrew Wakefield - THmy Andrew Wakefield at LIFE Vision May 2018 at Life University “Sooner or later we must all sit down to a feast of consequences” A Dutch doctor Tinus Smit has created a homoeopathic remedy for autistic children, since he began to see a rising number of mothers with their children, who showed such symptoms, in his practice, Google his name and you'll find more info. His CEASE-therapy, was successful. The ingredients mercury, formaldehyde, aluminium, were gradually removed from the patient (child) by this treatment. For children who had lived with autism for 7 or 10 years, the process took longer, with gradual improvement, at least, a better quality of life brought relief. The Dutch medical industry learned about this and they made sure that Tinus Smit was called to court and accused of misleading parents, sentenced to stop his practice. He died of cancer in 2010. Fortunately, Tinus Smit has trained many homoeopaths to practice CEASE-therapy, and you'll find them in Europe. Not sure about the US. Do your own research and find out. Another remedy to use as a detox from vaccines, is MMS. Jim Humble will explain in great detail what it does and how it works: @t. He's not a practitioner now, since he has reached very old age. Below, in the link, there’s a similar source about MMS, and the practitioner, Kerri Rivera, is treating autistic children and other diseases with infections at the core @t The scientific name for MMS is Chlorine Dioxide. Here it's explained what it is and does: @ I hope some of this may be helpful for you in this time and the time to come. Around this time, at the start of March, many reports are presented about the succesful application of Hydroxychloroquine, a remedy that is known as "Sunday-medicine" in Uganda, for many decades. Since the Ugandese population lives with malaria, this remedy is taken every week on Sunday. On millions of the Ugandese population, there's only about 50 COVID-19 deaths, due to this remedy. The American Frontline Doctors publish testimonies and video presentations with doctors who keep their COVID-19 patients alive, and recovering, with this remedy, also called HCQ.This is often combined with zinc, since zinc is a great detoxifying mineral, helping to release pathogens from the body. Here's where you can order this remedy. How Do I Get COVID-19 Medication? - America's Frontline Doctors I've received a few packages from a friend in Greece, where it's sold over the counter in pharmacies. In Greek hospitals HCQ is used with good results as well. Why this remedy was denied and suppressed is a mystery to this day. Wishing you reader good health, and the courage to think for yourself, making up your mind, finding peace.

    Not only did she get the gig, Johnny liked her so much she had the honor of being asked to be his last guest. The look on Johnny's face when she sings to him pure admiration. Always regret that I was never able to see her in concert. Love her.

  • Pete Michael

    Pete Michael


    Robin, The song she sang for Johnny as he was ending his run was "Make it one for my baby, and one more for the road". It was a wonderful moment. As you know, many performers are even more wonderful when we get to see them in person. If you had that opportunity it would have only reinforced what you feel about her.

    I remember something she said that stays with me, it goes something like this. If people live in beautiful surroundings, maybe they will behave in a beautiful way. This statement was made prior to her opening gardens for the poor. I think that concept could work in impoverished neighborhoods around the world. Beautiful doesn't have to imply expensive. She's amazing....
