Choose who must hold the title of the king!
PLEASE DON’T FORGET TO VISIT “THE KING OF MUSIC” POLLING SITE AND VOTE FOR ELVIS EVERY SINGLE DAY FOR THE REMAINDER OF THIS YEAR 2015. WE SIMPLY CANNOT LET ANYONE ELSE CLAIM ELVIS’ RIGHTFUL TITLE. BELOW IS THE LINK TO THE SITE FOR VOTING:
They have announced the King for the Month of June…..
The King of June – Elvis Presley With 21,965 Votes.
I see that we have fallen short of the total votes for Elvis in the month of June compared to our total votes in the month of May. Let’s all make a reminder for ourselves which we will see every day. This is important.
A good friend to our site, Linda F C, discovered this week that there is a poll receiving votes for the Song of Ages. A link to this second poll is shown at the very top of the site on which we are all voting every day for the KingofMusic. Below is the link to theSongofAges voting location.
Elvis has the number 1 song presently as well as number 3. Suspicious Minds is number 1; Love Me Tender is number 3.
Let’s add this to our daily to-do list in addition to voting for the King of Music. We can keep an Elvis song in first place here as well. As you will see below Suspicious Minds is far ahead in the lead now; and was also the number one song for the month of June.
The Song of June – Suspicious Minds – Elvis Presley With 5,079 Votes.
The best song election is a very complicated issue. Because of this, election will be separated into at least two phases. In the first phase we will determine the list of songs. In the second phase election will start all over again, no more than 70 the most popular songs will be in the final voting list. You should suggest your favorite song here.
Suspicious Minds – Elvis Presley (56%, 20,014 Votes)
- Billie Jean – Michael Jackson (22%, 7,930 Votes)
Love Me Tender – Elvis Presley (13%, 4,716 Votes)

A nice friend on Facebook, Daniela S., shared the below new photo with me. This, too, is a great example of another good match with Jesse’s photo. My thanks to Daniela.
I can’t recall if I have shared the following on my site before or not. I came across it in my files recently and so I am sharing it here…maybe again?
I am so very sorry that I can’t recall who shared this with me a good while back. But, as always, I am so grateful.

Jesse phoned me this afternoon late and we enjoyed a very nice visit. He is feeling all right…experiencing the humid weather as are we all. He enjoys getting outside and looking around. He keeps abreast of the current music and entertainment happenings by reading UnCut the magazine and MOJO, another magazine. He likes to get some of the latest new movies when they come out on DVD and Blu Ray…also likes some of the old ones. He continues to enjoy music of all kinds…many artists of all kinds. He said he was so busy, back during all those years when he was working, that he missed seeing so many things. I thought that my visitors would enjoy knowing some of the things he enjoys now. He and I discuss these things very often but I never thought to share any of this as it doesn’t really seem like news to us…but perhaps it will be a small insight for others.

Amen to this!!!!

A very good friend to my web site and to me, Lucilia, shared this new photo match showing how closely Jesse’s Benjamin resembled Lisa Marie as a baby. My heartfelt thanks to Lucilia, as always. She is such a strong defender of the truth on my site.
Also, here is a repeat post of a comparison which I shared much earlier. These were both taken when Ben and Lisa were each around 2 years old:
A nice friend on Facebook, Daniela S., posted the link to this very special video on my timeline and requested that I send it to Jesse. I certainly will put this on a DVD for him this week. I want to share it here for my visitors as well. My thanks to Daniela for sharing this with me to share with Jesse.
This is from the Phoenix XP Production DVD “The 1972 New York Experience”. Elvis at Madison Square Garden, New York. This is fan footage from the Opening Show, 9th June 1972, 8.30pm.
There is about 16 minutes of footage, which has been restored. The emphasis has been to make Elvis’ face the best to look at. This may mean that other colours are not accurate.
Included are at least some of the following songs:
That’s All Right
Polk Salad Annie
Never Been To Spain

I apologize for my absence and my lack of an explanation. I thank Barbara so much for posting about our predicament so others would not be too concerned.
I have not been well for about a week…that plus the loss of our services due to the lightning strike. The lightning struck and destroyed our AT & T router which in turn allowed the strike to get to our desktop computer even though it’s power cord was unplugged. That router strike, of course, took our phone system out as well as our Internet connection. We have things pretty much restored now. The only thing is that our desktop computer has been in the repair shop since last Wednesday morning and a part was ordered to try to repair it. We learned yesterday afternoon that the part did not repair it. We have to find someone else with more knowledge to check it out to see IF it can be fixed. Of course, if not, we will have to get a new computer. So, we still have a way to go before I can resume normal activities on my site. We got out one of our old computers and Tom installed it today. So, I will be using it some until we get a proper computer in place. I don’t know when that will be just yet. I am still not feeling well…so that deters me as well.
I will be able to do some work on my site as soon as I feel better as this computer will do some of the things which I normally do.

I want to share with everyone that Jesse called me late this afternoon. He sounded wonderful and said that he is doing all right. He said that it is hot weather for him as well…but said that he does spend some time sitting out on his balcony. He received my latest letter in which I told him about our lightning strike and my current health issues. He is concerned for me and Tom as always. He understands about our computer still being out of order and told me not to worry about him…but to just take care of myself.
His call made my day (always does). We love him so much.
SENT TO JESSE THROUGH THIS POINT ON FRIDAY, AUGUST 14, 2015
