off blog topic – a Tribute to Leonard Nimoy February 27, 2016Posted by Ruth in Dreams, Inconsistent Angel Things.
It is one year since Leonard Nimoy has passed away. It is so hard to believe that he is not with us anymore. My loss is from a fan’s point of view. My personal life goes on, pretty much unaffected. His family and friends, of course have a different loss. And I extend my good wishes to them.
Now everyone knows I have a raging fantasy crush on the fictional character Mr. Spock. But I have also always had a deep admiration for the man behind the ears, Leonard Nimoy. Since August 1966, when I first saw a commercial for “the new and exciting science fiction show, Star Trek, coming this fall on NBC,” and I saw Mr. Spock – my heart just went pitter-patter.
As the show’s episodes aired, and we viewers saw more of Mr. Spock, and the man Leonard Nimoy became known to the public, I was hopelessly and still am, in “crush” with the two. I have no answers as to how and why a 14 year old girl falls in “love” with a fictional character that isn’t even alive.
After Star Trek, Mr. Nimoy joined the TV show Mission Impossible, and then started to do some movies: Catlow, Baffled, Assault on the Wayne, and others. In the early 70’s his hobbies came to the fore, with him publishing his photographs and poetry. He wrote a one-man play “Vincent,” about the life of artist Vincent van Gogh. Also in the 70’s, he hosted a syndicated show called “In Search Of,” about unexplained phenomena. He also did regional theatre, playing Tevye in Fiddler on the Roof, and King Arthur in Camelot.
In the 70’s I became a member of his official fan club, The Leonard Nimoy Association of Fans, and through the club, I purchased a few of his photographs that he matted and signed for us fans. Those and his books of poetry are among my most treasured possessions.
I was fortunate to meet and speak with him a few times. He was always so warm and gracious. The last time was May 19, 2003, when he was doing a book tour of his book Shekhina. My late friend, Michelene Biber and I, ran a small Star Trek discussion group, The USS Ari, at the time, and we presented Mr. Nimoy with a “Friends of the Ari” certificate that Michelle put together. He got a kick out of it.
Leonard Nimoy was much more than Mr. Spock of Star Trek. He was an actor, a photographer, a poet, a writer, a musician, a singer, he directed and produced some movies. He was also a deeply spiritual man.
When I spoke to him in May 2003 I told him how much I admired the quote he chose as the foreword to his Shekhina book. He said (paraphrase) “Isn’t that the most profound and beautiful thing you ever heard?”
That quote is: “We are not human beings having a spiritual experience. We are spiritual beings having a human experience,” by Pierre Teilhard de Chardin.
Mr. Nimoy left us a year ago today to continue a new phase of his spiritual journey. Godspeed Mr. Nimoy.

Joan M Wheeler would NEVER accept any of these scenarios, where a child would have to be sacrificed; Judgment of Solomon, Sophie’s Choice, Burning Building test. February 19, 2016Posted by gertmcqueen in Uncategorized.
NEW POST check it out…
Joan M Wheeler has recently stated that she is mentally ill! would you believe anything she has to say NOW?
No, she sees no scenario where adoption is an answer, ever! She’s totally against adoption no matter what! Foolish woman! Dangerous woman! Life is full of tragedies where people MUST make hard/difficult choices and sacrifices, including those related to one’s own children. She herself gave her children up, in their daily lives, for the CAUSE OF ADOPTION.
BUT before we continue I want to share…

Birth siblings of, Duped by adoption, Joan M Wheeler, say COME VISIT US… February 12, 2016Posted by gertmcqueen in Uncategorized.
yep Joan gets around…trying to get support while she slanders family
Come, spend time with those that have been lied about and harmed by her! Come met those real birth siblings; we’re part of that adoption triad!
Joan is, and has, NO celebrity, except in her own mind. Joan has done NOTHING to help other adoptees. Joan HAS written several good articles! Joan also HAS written two books of lies, hate and rage over, and about, two families. Joan is a con-artist and a liar.
In Sept 2015 I first saw the following post, in which Joan tells others about her NEW book, ‘Forbidden Family: My Life as an Adoptee Duped by Adoption’ and well I couldn’t get to it before now!
But note THIS; that this post is from June 2014. Sure, Joan had been saying, ever since the first book was pulled from publication, in 2011, that she’s rewriting it. Obviously, it took her some time to figure…

#JoanMWheeler was ‘spared from living in an American orphanage’! Her siblings were NOT as lucky. #flipthescript February 12, 2016Posted by gertmcqueen in Uncategorized.
sharing more thoughts and words about you know who…
That’s correct a year AFTER she was placed into adoption, due to death of mother, five children (4 birth-children and 1 step-child) were placed in orphan and foster homes due to illness of step-mother. Joan NEVER tells the truth and leaves MUCH vital information OUT. Joan rarely tells about the second marriage of our father and how that second wife REFUSED to take and raise the infant (Joan). There was NO other option but to place the infant (Joan) into adoption. There was NO family to KEEP her in. Our father said, if he could not raise her, NO ONE in the family would!
Her placement in adoption had NOTHING to do with the church or what a priest said or didn’t say. Sure our father sought out advice but the bottom line is; the second wife REFUSED the infant! Joan can NOT accept the fact that our father’s second…
