Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Jan's Blog

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.


Date: 29th September 2008

I feel like going into Mourning.  Paul Newman was my all time favourite Film Star and now he's gone at the relatively youngish age of 83.  Well that seems young to me when my father is still alive at 93 and with all his faculties except his sight. 

Paul Newman ticked all the boxes - was a fine actor, kind and generous (gave away a fortune to charity and all from his Salad Dressing), had the same wife for 50 years (Joanne Woodward) and was incredibly good looking.  Showbiz marriages are notoriously short lived but he and Joanne were married since 1958.

His family must be totally devastated and I'm sure they will be getting messages of sympathy from all over the world.  He appeared to be a true GENTLE-man.  I only hope some ghastly journalist doesn't try to put the boot into him as so many do at the demise of a much respected Icon.  Why can't they just let well alone and leave we, the fans, with our lovely memories, and his family with their respect.

I've had the honour throughout my career to be able to interview many famous people - Omar Shariff, Joss Ackland, Andy Williams, Cliff Richard and so on and so forth.  I just wish I'd had the opportunity to interview Paul Newman.  The reason I've not mentioned any women stars is that those interviews were usually given to the men on the team.

Must dash as my feet have hardly touched the ground over the last week what with Newspaper, Radio and TV Interviews.  Was up at the crack of dawn (well almost) for an appearance on the Lorraine Kelly Show on GMTV.  She is a lovely lady and not only that but she fired a question at me and then let me chatter on, so I do hope I got across my enthusiasm for Internet Dating Sites and impressed on the public my view that certainly Kindred Spirits is a safe way of getting to know someone from the comfort of your own home and that the Site is for all ages, all persuasions, and full of interesting people.

I get my Website Analysis every Monday morning and was staggered today to see that almost 1000 folk had visited the site and from all over the world.  Heaven knows how they find me - I think some must google words like 'Cheetah' and then get brought onto the site.  If they are interested in what they read, they revisit.  Even when I appeared in Celebrity Cash in the Attic and featured the male cancer charity 'Orchid'  there weren't quite so many hits.

I told you I'm off to Barcelona for the Juice Plus Conference so I hope there will be much about which to write when I get back.  Really looking forward to seeing the Gaudi Cathedral.

So, until the next time.  Thank you for visiting and please keep coming back -life is more exciting at certain times than at others but I try to write something each week - as they used to say in the old Music Halls - for your delectation and delight.

Best wishes,  Jan
