I'm still so surprised and excited about winning this contest, I just can't describe it. Probably won't get much sleep tonight, but that's ok.

Nice idea to start a poem competition....I suppose the name of the winner would be dr.dip ...... ;-)

Hi Thrasher, hi friends,
just wanted to let you know, that sometimes big happiness and deep sorrow can be very close, too close.
On Tuesday, 26th, my deeply loved husband for almost 18 years, father of my four wonderful boys, died suddenly and without any warnings at 8.30 am in his office because of a heart attack.
He left the house like every morning and never came back again....
The funeral will be on Tuesday, June 2, and I don't know how to get through the days and nights....

He was the one who made the video and that day we laughed so much and had fun together. This day will always be a very special memory for me.

Now I won't attend Neils Concert in Cologne, Germany, but with my heart I will be there that evening.

Maybe Neil could sing Harvest Moon for me and Michael, like he did for the Australian family a couple of month ago.....many of my friends will be there and could tell me about it.....

Thanks so much for listening,
regards to all of you
Love, Liza
