Hello Fellow Xenites and Herk Fans!!!
Click HERE to get the Older Updates from Late April 26 on...
The Letters/Updates on this Page are dated from 1/23/98-4/26/98 from oldest to newest at the bottom. This one is From 1/23/98:
I FINALLY have my OWN website!!! This is VERY exciting to me and I hope that you all will come to enjoy this site as it comes along!!! Please continue to read this letter as I'll explain what's been going on here, why there hasn't been a recent Tube Watch Update in awhile and how this site will change in the coming weeks.
Things here have been VERY trying to say the least!!! A tree fell on my car during a windstorm and totaled it. My Grandmother was letting me borrow her car and while we were going into a Restaurant, she fell and broke her shoulder in 4 places!!! She's been staying with us while she recuperates. To make things worse…my mom was also rushed to the Hospital…Well, I've been SO BUSY between work and taking care of my Grandma, that I haven't had the time to devote to my Tube Watch Updates!!! Things are getting better though…THANKGOODNESS!!! My mom is doing better and my Grandmother is going to Physical Therapy 3 times a week and is improving!!!
With what time I could find, I've been concentrating on getting pages done about the Valley Forge Creation Convention that I went to see Renee O'Connor and Ted Raimi and to see Grease with Lucy Lawless!!! These pages were A LOT of fun to put together and I HOPE that you'll enjoy them!!! They're filled with photos, music, commentary and more!!! Please go see them!!!
I still do not have the time that I used to, but plan to do Updates to this site every day, so that it will be the latest info that I can find and I encourage you to write me with any info that you can find as it keeps things more interesting for fellow fans!!!
This Page will be a COMPLETE Index to everything concerned with the Tube Watch website. I will have a list of links to my other pages on this site and next to each link will be the last time it was Updated, so you can see Quickly at a Glance if there's anything new or not. All the actors and actresses that I have researched will be in Alphabetical order and will have 2 things to watch for. (1) If the page has been Updated, that could mean a new picture, new link, new background or new information. (2) If the page has Upcoming TV info, this will also be listed, so that you can look for those directly…
Here's an EXAMPLE:
In doing my past Updates, I have done A LOT of Research and would like to share it with you, but have found myself cutting back, due to the length of my Reports!!! I have received many letters saying that the download time to my various Reports is long and is there any way I could break it up. Where I was depending upon others to do the HTML and put My Reports on Their websites, I felt as though I needed to make it more easier for them and could not do this. Now, with my own site, I can break up the different sections and put them on their own pages or some of the smaller ones would be put together on a page, so that you'd have A LOT faster download time and wouldn't have to wade through a lot of information that you're not interested in.
My Thanks goes out to MANY people who helped me to get this far!!! 1st of all, A HUGE Thanks goes to my Professor Janet Cosgrove for helping me to learn HTML in the class I took this past semester!!!
Many Thanks to Kathy Doerr of Xena/Lucy Lawless Resource Central for getting me interested in putting my Tube Watch Reports into a website!!! She did the HTML for the first few and put them on her site. Now see what you've started!?! : )
Many Thanks go out to Michael Martinez of XOR(Xena Online Resources), who was GRACIOUS enough to take both Kathy's Xena Resource Central and the older ALWheaties Tube Watch Reports under his wing while Kathy was offline!!!
Thanks to Data Spock for helping to Create the Tube Watch Calendar and Thanks to Mich for Maintaining it!!! A HUGE THANKS to Mich for doing the HTML of the Nov. 26-Dec. 11th and the Oct. 25th Reports!!! And Thanks to Wesser for providing the space at The Hudson Leick Fan Club!!!
And a SPECIAL THANKS to my younger sister Jillian!!! She has been WONDERFUL in helping me type up A LOT of the info that goes into many of the reports.
I look forward to making the BEST possible site that I can and hope that you will enjoy my efforts!!! As always, your ideas are Welcome and I will try to write you back, but sometimes it takes awhile as my time is limited, so Please bear with me!!! : )
Things have been REALLY Crazy here for me these past 2 weeks!!! I've been having trouble getting online and when I get online...I get knocked off. Grrr!!! Oh, well. I have FINALLY made some progress!!! : )
I fixed my ALWheaties Logo, so that the Download of this page will be faster...
I FINALLY have a page done for Tony Todd!!! He was GREAT on Xena as Cecrops and as Gladius on Hercules!!! There's Upcoming TV and Movie Info on him and I am hoping to have Kevin Smith's page up by tomorrow along with Renee O'Connor's Page...There's SO MANY more in the works!!!
I added 4 more pictures to my Lucy Lawless/Grease Page!!! There's more to be scanned, but again not enough time...so, I'll announce here when the other ones are up.
Mich is on Vacation, so the Tube Watch Calendar hasn't been Updated in awhile. I plan on putting some dates here for until he comes back. I'll put some together and possibly have them up tomorrow.
I wanted to wish Renee O'Connor a HAPPY 27th BIRTHDAY!!!! If you're reading Renee, I made you a Birthday Card, so Click HERE to pick it up!!! : )
