I think the whole Amber debacle has been an awakening for Johnny. I am not sure how much of this financial thing could have continued on until more and more damage was done if the divorce hadn't forced his legal team to make an accounting.

And all of this mess without a written contract? Is that right? What reputable company deals with this sort of financial empire with nothing in writing? Johnny came from nothing and on some level I think his inability to comprehend the wealth and complications can be understood and forgiven. But a m...
I am sure that most of us can't even imagine the kind of finances Johnny's world entails. I am happy if I can pay the electric bill each month when it arrives and have money left for groceries and a little extra for fun. Millions of dollars would be beyond my comprehension, and I am sure it has been...

:applause2: Not much longer to wait, I need to start reading the book soon. Intellectual property is such a complicated and fearsome topic. I think I see both sides of this, but I probably lean more to thinking that if nothing he wrote is used in the film, he shouldn't get paid for contributing to t...

I hope we will get some sort of word about the 2014 unofficial project. I included a note with my donation to tell them it was in honor of Johnny's birthday.

I successfully uploaded 90-plus photos to a Photobucket album today. However, they still upload in a rather random order. I really do not like that development since I put my photos in the order I want them before I upload. For instance, the birthday candle is lit, then it is blown out, then the cak...

Thank you Part Time Poet and Theresa for giving us a chance to show our love and appreciation to Johnny in a tangible way. It warms my heart, and I hope it warms his, to know how this wonderful man inspires us to be better and better than we were before we knew him.

When I followed the link given in part-time poet's announcement and I clicked to look at pictures of the hospital, I got a warning that the website was a "reported attack site", one that steals personal information. I certainly hope that was an error!
