Paul Rodgers leaves Queen


Paul Rodgers has left Queen after five years in the band. The singer joined original members Brian May and Roger Taylor in 2004 to form the reunited version of the group. Rodgers has no animosity towards May and Taylor and he said  that this arrangement as Queen’s frontman was never meant to be permanent one. The musician also said he would be open to work with them again. Its like an open book, if they approach me for charity, for instance, or something like that…. he would be very much into doing that. With Rodgers as a member, Queen embarked on two full-lenght tours and recorded two live DVDs. The band also released their first album since 1995 with 2008’s the Cosmos Rocks. The cosmos rocks was very historical for Brain May and Roger Taylor because they hadn’t gone into the studio with anybody and recorded something like that for a very long time. So it was quite an achivement.

Dogs in the House


We have besides Lady two more puppies, Noelle she is a mix Shihitzu x Sharpei, and Kira a German Sheppard mix. Noelle is now 6 months and we got her from a Dog kennel in Roermond, named the Kingsmill. She was so skinnie that we could not say no to her. We tought if we left her there, she would not survive. We took her to the vet the next day we got her, and the vet was shocked. Way to skinny and full off parasites. It took us at least 2 months to get the parasites out off her. She is a very happy chappi, she is so greatfull, like she nows, we saved her life. Now she is almost 6 months and she has a skin disease, she got from her mother during birth. Its something the mother has too. She needs a chemical bath, every 6 days, for a month, it reallie stinks and it makes her feel sick, we are glad that the others dogs cannot get it. I am sorry i just dont now the english name for it. I just want to say how is it possible for a Doggie kennel sell sick dogs ?? Well than there is Kira, we bought her in Sittard from a normal family and she is a little raskel. But o so sweet. Lady left the house with my oldest daughter she moved out because she got an apartement for herself. Thats what kids do when they grow up. Lady spents daytime with us when my daughter is working. So Noelle and Kira are good friends, but the always love it when Lady comes home. Lady is their role model. We are all so very happy to have dogs in the house again, It tells us how much we missed Beau and Gina, that will never stop i quess, but the pain off their loss heals now.


Are they not the cutest puppies you have ever seen. Kira cries when i get home from work and she cries when i leave in the morning. Its so funnie to have 3 pups running arround you to say hello to you when you come home.  I always want to have dogs in my life, yes its hard when they die and you have to say goodbey, but they give you so much love for the time you have them,  i never want to miss that again.

Bindi as Kirra Cooper in Free Willy 4


This is Bindi like her fans have never seen her, playing the lead role of Kirra Cooper in her first full-length movie - Free Willy 4.With her hair shorter and sporting a tan she’s looking a lot more grown up than the pig-tailed 10-year-old poppet who usually dances with her Crocmen at Australia Zoo on the Sunshine Coast. Two-and-a-half years after she captivated the world with her eulogy to her Crocodile Hunter father Steve Irwin, Bindi now looks set to captivate a whole new audience. Bindi’s acting skills have been described as formidable by the movie’s writer and director Will Geiger and they are sentiments echoed by her co-star, who is indeed veteran actor Beau Bridges. Bridges said he and his family had been huge Crocodile Hunter fans and then fans of Bindi’s Jungle Girl show. Being shot in Cape Town, the movie fast forwards from 1997’s Free Willy 3 and tells the story of a young Australian girl (Kirra) whose mother died when she was four and who is sent to live with her grandfather Gus Grisby (Bridges)  in South Africa. Gus owns a rundown beachside amusement park and when a baby Orca gets washed ashore, there is conflict over whether the little whale should be kept as an attraction or rehabilitated and sent back to his pod. Bindi is excited about the possibility of more movies. Bindi’s film Free Willy 4 is expected to be ready for release to DVD next year.
