The following is a statement which I just posted on my page titled LIES!!! on which I had previously posted links to some of the attacks upon me:
Footnote: I have chosen not to carry forward the page titled “LIES” onto my new web site. The following statement remains just for information only.
You may have seen that I did post a number of links on this page earlier to which the response LIES!!! would apply.
I leave justice and my defense in God’s hands.
Once more, I am going to share my Cayce Thought for the Day from the ARE….Association for Research and Enlightenment.
I do read these every single morning and strive to find the inner strength and peace to live by these tenets. So many days I do fail miserably when faced with the harsh realities of this unkind and often cruel world in which our souls are presently dwelling and being tested. I can only ask God’s help in having the strength to overcome my own human emotions when faced with injustices and heartaches.
Think on This …
For the greater individual is the one who is the servant of all. And to conquer self is greater than taking many cities. For, here ye may find humbleness as against that which cries oft for expression, and the feeling of not being appreciated. Express it more in the greater amount of love upon those who may be aided through thy effort. For, remember, man looks upon the things of the day but God looks upon the heart.

My good friend, Michele found something else very special about Elvis and the numbers 8 and 16 which perfectly parallels the design of the Sundial suit.
“[Harry] Levitch made a one-off platinum wedding band for Elvis in 1967, decorated with eight baguette-cut diamonds surrounded by a border of 16 full-cut diamonds, eight being Elvis’ lucky number.”Michele
My good friend, Ron Collamore, wrote today about a photo which he saw in the new edition of the www.elvis.com.au newsletter. Here is a little of what Ron wrote: “ …Elvis and Barbara McNair sitting together. Look at his smile. Especially at the first photo. It matches Jesse and his smile. What do you think?” I do see what Ron means and I will display the photo here.
Here is the photo:
Thank you so much for bringing that to our attention, Ron.

SAFETY ALERT TO EVERYONE WHO HAS A FACEBOOK ACCOUNT:
UESDAY, APRIL 19, 2011
I have a previous page which I devoted to the topic of Elvis and Howard Hughes. Also, to the book BOXES which is based on very convincing evidence that Howard Hughes had a derelict who was his stand-in for many years while Mr. Hughes pursued his business from remote areas via telephone and through aides. When the stand-in died in April, 1976, a rushed funeral was held for Howard Hughes. Even Mr. Hughes own family did not know that they were burying a poor derelict. They actually thought they were burying their relative…a distant relative. The closest family Mr. Hughes had was an aunt and her son.
When the funeral was held, just a handful of people attended. I believe the book said 25 total.
As the real Howard Hughes alias “Nik” and his wife of many years sat in the living room of their small home in Alabama listening to the reports of the death and funeral on a radio, he made the comment shown in the below excerpt from the book BOXES to his wife regarding the funeral.
I love this quote when thought of in terms of Elvis’s “funeral“. It is wonderful to know that Elvis/Jesse watched and saw the thousands and thousands who attended his funeral in the streets of Memphis. I know that Jesse enjoys knowing how much people still love him.
Below is the copy of a letter written by Jesse for his book in which he stated that Howard Hughes helped him pull it off in Aug. 1977. Only someone of Elvis’s clout and connections would have known that Howard Hughes had faked his own death and was still alive in 1977 when Elvis faked his death… once substantiating that Jesse is Elvis. This book which was written with the total co-operation of the widow of Howard Hughes alias “Nik” was not published until 2010. She stipulated that it was not to be published until after her own death.
The book is very interesting reading. You will be astounded by the parallels to the plot of what Howard Hughes did to escape his wealth and fame and the problems which accompanied all of that to what Elvis did when he retired to get away from the same sort of “trappings of success” to reinvent himself as Jesse.
Here is the copy of a portion of Jesse’s letter from my copy of the rough draft of the book:
Here is the link to my earlier page which has more details: lindahoodsigmonstruth.com/page55
Here is the link to Amazon.com where you may purchase this most interesting book. I highly recommend it.
Boxes The Secret Life of Howard Hughes – Paperback (Apr. 22, 2010) by Douglas Wellman
MONDAY, APRIL 25, 2011
Below are the links to several very interesting YouTube videos relating to the above book: Boxes The Secret Life of Howard Hughes
Please read the page from Jesse’s letter once more taking particular note of his statement: “…this is the first time I have mentioned on paper this man’s name: Herb Wolff”…along with the Col. and Howard Hughes…and some other very loyal people whose help I needed to pull this off.”
I have often wondered who Herb Wolff was but have been unable to find any reference to him in my searches. I am sure there are others out there who do know who he is/ was…but not I. You may see how difficult it is to find anything about Mr. Herb Wolff by doing the Internet searches yourself. There are other people with the same name…but not this man who was associated with Howard Hughes.
A good friend, Deb, sent me a video today of a lecture being given by one of the co-authors of the book BOXES about which I have written above and earlier.
The lecture is most interesting and I will include the link to that video as well momentarily. But, the most important item which I am so very eager to share is another video of a gentleman who actually worked for Howard Hughes. In the very opening of this gentleman’s statement, you will hear him tell about being contacted by Herb Wolff and that he managed Howard Hughes’s ranch in Nevada.
This is so very important in once again substantiating what Jesse wrote in his book and of course further proof that Jesse is Elvis. As I have explained earlier Howard Hughes, as the world knew him, died in April 1976, but Jesse said that Mr. Hughes helped him pull off his public “death” in 1977. Only someone of Elvis’s clout and connections would have known that Howard Hughes was still alive in 1977…much less have mentioned Herb Wolff and Howard Hughes together in the same paragraph as having helped him.
I am so weary of trying to explain things in such a way that the critics cannot tear it apart. So, I will say only just go back and read the page from Jesse’s letter above and then listen to this gentlemen’s statement in which he mentions that Herb Wolff ran a ranch for Howard Hughes.

Below is the link to a video of a speech given by the co-author of the book, who also is the gentleman who was close friends with Eva McClelland who was the wife of Howard Hughes after he had the derelict replace him in the public eye and whose death was later announced as being the death of Howard Hughes in April, 1976. Eva’s story as recounted in the book BOXESis so very interesting and certainly gives an account of Howard Hughes that only someone very close to him for their long marriage could give.
Once more, I strongly recommend this book to everyone…simply because it so strongly supports what Elvis did to become Jesse and to ramain on ths earth with all of us who love him so much.
I want to acknowledge once more my good friend, Ron, who introduced me to this book and loaned me his copy to read.
Here is the link to this 2nd video:

Lastly, here is a third video of a book signing by Mr. Miller and the comments of some of those who were present at the presentation of the book.

I ask only that each visitor takes the time to go back and read what Jesse wrote about those who helped him to pull it off in 1977 and fully appreciate the fact that he did give the names of some of those who helped him to do so.
You see, Col. Parker passed away in January, 1997 which would explain the fact that Jesse felt more at ease speaking of the Col’s part in the “death” of Elvis when he began writing to Dr. Hinton for the book around 1998. Also, the book was not to have been published until after Elvis/Jesse’s actual death initially. I know that Jesse would not have wanted to cause any media attention to Col. Parker about the plan which they carried out. However, please do remember that it has been reported by several that in a local CA TV morning show interview, Col. Parker stated “Elvis wanted a way out and I showed him how to do it.” This was back in the very late 80’s after Gail Brewer-Giorgio’s book became the talk of the day. I believe that on that particular day, the Col. thought “the jig was up”. Fortunately, that was not the case and it all blew over for the most part.
A friend has also written me that he has read that a private conversation between the Col. and Elvis was heard in which the Col. said something to Elvis like: “I got you into this, Son, and I’ll get you out.” I have no written proof of this conversation, but knowing all that I do, I certainly can imagine such a statement being made by Col. Parker to Elvis.

I wish to express my thanks to everyone who posted their Easter Greetings to Jesse on the message board. I have left it up for several extra days so others had the chance to add their messages.
I have just finished printing off the messages entered since Monday, April 18th and will be putting them in the mail to Jesse tomorrow morning.
I am certain that he will enjoy reading all of them very much.
I also want to thank those who despise me and my web site for staying off of the greetings board. I only had to remove one message the entire time the board has been up.
My heartfelt thanks to everyone…once more.

I want to say to everyone who lives in the areas which were so devastated by the tornadoes that my heartfelt thoughts and prayers are with those people. May God comfort and heal them from their losses. I have spoken by phone with a good friend who was only a very short distance from the town of Tuscaloosa which was destroyed and he and his family are all OK. I have received Emails from others who live in Alabama and, thankfully, they too are OK.
I visited Larry Geller’s MySpace page for the first time a few minutes ago and I want to recommend it to everyone. On there you may watch several very good interviews with Larry which I thoroughly enjoyed. As always, I wholeheartedly recommend everything done by Larry. He is a beautiful soul who shares the very essence of Elvis with all of us. Bless his heart.
A friend told me recently that one of the tabloids had a front page story about “The last days of....” and Jerry Lee was one of those written up in the article. It was a very sad account of his life now. So, when I saw the below article, I felt good that, once again, the tabloid story may have been wrong.
Goodness gracious! Jerry Lee’s still rocking at 75
More than half a century after he first pounded the piano and belted out a rock ’n’ roll number, Jerry Lee Lewis is still going strong.
The 75-year-old former hell-raiser has retained his trademark wavy hair and can still put in a mean performance on the keyboard.
The singer appeared on stage at the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekender festival more than half a century after he found fame with hits such as Great Balls of Fire.
In 1957, Lewis was a huge star alongside the likes of Elvis Presley and Johnny Cash.
However, his career faltered a year later during a tour of Britain after it emerged he had married his 13-year-old cousin, Myra Gale Brown. He was 22.
Lewis went from earning $10,000 a night to only $100. Despite the scandal, he was inducted into the Rock ’n’ Roll Hall of Fame in 1986.
Going strong: Lewis found fame more than 50 years ago with Great Balls of Fire
Back in the day: This picture, taken in 1956, shows Jerry Lee, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and Elvis at a jamming session in Memphis. The following year Jerry Lee had his hit Great Balls of Fire.FRIDAY, APRIL 29, 2011
I want to share the Edgar Cayce Thought for the Day while asking God to please grant me the grace to live by these precepts in the face of the actions of those without understanding of what they do unto others:
Speak gently, speak kindly to those who falter. Ye know not THEIR own temptation, nor the littleness of their understanding. Judge not as to this or that activity of another; rather pray that the light may shine even in THEIR lives as it HAS in thine. These are the manners in which the sons and daughters of men may KNOW His way. In this mundane sphere there comes to all that period when doubts and fears arise. These may EASILY be cast aside by knowing that He is IN His holy temple and ALL is well.

Become part of the legacy.
In the same vein of thought as the above, my dear friend Susan sent me the following lighter version of the above truth.
My thanks to her for brightening my day.
Law of the Garbage Truck
One day I hopped in a taxi and we took off for the airport �
We were driving in the right lane when suddenly
a black car jumped out of a parking space
Right in front of us. My taxi driver slammed
on his brakes, skidded, and missed the
other car by just inches! The driver of
the other car whipped his head around
and started yelling at us.
My taxi driver just smiled and waved at the guy.
And I mean, he was really friendly.
So I asked, ‘Why did you just do that?
This guy almost ruined your car
and sent us to the hospital!’
This is when my taxi driver taught me what I now call,
‘The Law of the Garbage Truck.’
He explained that many people are like garbage trucks.
They run around full of garbage, full of frustration,
Full of anger, and full of disappointment.
As their garbage piles up, they need a place to dump it
and sometimes they’ll dump it on you.
Don’t take it personally.
Just smile, wave, wish them well, and move on.
Don’t take their garbage and spread it
to other people at work, at home, or on the streets.
The bottom line is that successful people
do not let garbage trucks take over their day.
Life’s too short to wake up in the morning with regrets,
So … Love the people who treat you right.
Pray for the ones who don’t.
Life is ten percent what you make it
and ninety percent how you take it!
Have a garbage-free day!
“Faith is not believing God can,
it is knowing that God will.”

Someone has said that if Christians really understood the full extent of the power we have available through prayer, we might be speechless. Did you know that during WWII there was an advisor to Churchill who organized a group of people who dropped what they were doing every day at a prescribed hour for one minute to collectively pray for the safety of England , its people and peace? There is now a group of people organizing the same thing here in America . If you would like to participate: Every evening at 9:00 PM Eastern Time (8:00 PM Central) (7:00 PM Mountain) (6:00 PM Pacific), stop whatever you are doing and spend one minute praying for the safety of the United States, our government, our troops, our citizens, and for a return to a Godly nation. If you know anyone else who would like to participate, please pass this along. Our prayers are the most powerful asset we have.
Please forward this to your praying friends.
I just came across a song with the title “Elvis is Alive” available on Amazon.com. It may be purchased as an MP3 download for only .89 cents. I have not listened to it yet. But, I thought that others may be interested in hearing this song. I am curious about whether it is done in a serious vein or a tongue-in-cheek manner. Below is the link if anyone wishes to check it out:

First of all I will show pages from the book concerning Ellen Marie Foster. You will see in these pages that my account of having photographed the ring and the letter written by Ms. Foster during one of our trips to Graceland is true….there is a report of the ring and letter being on display there in the museum.
And now, I turn to some very interesting facts concerning Elvis’s/Jesse’s trust in the tenets of Numerology…also found in Ms. Dundy’s book.
Below you will see the two excerpts from Cheiro’s Book of Numbers explaining the meaning of 24 and 42.
As you can see the #24 was completely in harmony with Elvis’ plan for that day. The first words of this just give me chills….”assistance and association of those of rank and position with one’s plans”…”favorable number when it comes out in relation to future events”. This was truly a date with God’s blessings upon it for Elvis.
Also, refer back to the written words of Elvis/Jesse above in which he points out the significance of the date of birth and the date of death as it relates to his having been born a twin.
Then we have the number 42 (Elvis’ age) below: as you will see, it is simply the reverse of 24 and has the same meaning as the 24. Therefore it denotes all of the favorable aspects of the above written facts about 24.
And at last….here is the page from Ms. Dundy’s book with the facts about Glady’s age at the time of her death and the significance of 42 in that respect.
Once more, for those who may have missed it on earlier pages of my site, here is the copy (from my copy of the rough draft of his book) of Elvis’s/Jesse’s handwritten introduction to his book in which he emphasizes several times the immense importance of Numerology and “the perfect day“. Take note of the numbers 24 and 42 in his introduction.
(Please excuse that this last page is larger…it scanned that way because it is not a whole page).
Below is more evidence to support the fact that there actually was a lady named Ellen Marie Foster who was friends with Elvis both before 1977 and probably after 1977.
While I have never known everything about the Chanzes and Crown episode and have forgotten much of what I did know 20+ years ago, I do know that their credibility was suspect and I think that one of them…probably Chanzes later came out and claimed that it was a scam. I do have to wonder why he did that after such a long time, though, if my memory is correct regarding the timing.
Also, he chose the date to leave so methodically for many other reasons…many of them in sync with his Numerology calculations. The fact that the indictments of the participants in the plane fraud case were going to be handed down at the same time may have been a fortunate “coincidence”.

May God grant me the strength and grace to forgive according to today’s admonition in the Edgar Cayce Thought for the Day:
Think on This …
For only as ye forgive those who have blamed thee without a cause, who have spoken vilely of thee without reason, can the giver of life and light forgive thee–even though He came into experience that ye, even ye, might know thy place with God, with thy Maker.

|I am going to repeat myself about a lie/misconception which I have already refuted once before on this site. There are two “mug shot” type photos of Elvis which were taken during the visit in which he was presented an honorary police badge in Denver, Colorado. There is a web site which displays these photos as if they are part of something negative about Elvis and about Gail Brewer-Giorgio and Monte Nicholson. These photos of Elvis have absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with the story and yet they are displayed at the very top of the article titledThe Elvis Files.Once again here are the photos along with the title of the article:
The Elvis Files
“The Elvis Files” is written by Gail B. Giorgio and Kevin Gershan. Produced by Melvin B. Bergman, Stan Corwin ,Laurette Healey, Paula Miller, and William M. Speckin. It is directed by Laurette Healey , features music by Jonathan Wolff, and edited by Robert Boucher. It is represented as a documentary, and not represented as fiction.
Please take note that the above caption in yellow detailing when and where the photo was taken does not appear in the article by DiscoveringElvis titled The Elvis Files.
|SATURDAY, MAY 7, 2011ANNOUNCEMENT – PERMANENT MESSAGE BOARD
My heartfelt thanks to my dear friend, MJ, for the beautiful drawing of Jesse reading his messages.
There will now be a permanent message board on which everyone is invited to post their messages to Jesse.
I remind everyone that the Internet is a dangerous place and therefore I admonish everyone to be very careful about posting any contact information. Jesse does not call nor write to anyone with whom he is not familiar. He does not use the Internet at all.His contact with anyone is strictly guarded. Anyone on the Internet who claims to be Elvis is a fraud and should not be trusted. This includes ALL YouTube, FaceBook, Twitter, forums, message boards, Emails, etc.
I will print off the messages and send them to Jesse on a weekly basis. He has enjoyed our earlier messages to him which were written on our special occasion’s boards in the past and I know he will enjoy hearing from those who miss Elvis and love him in his new life as Jesse.
Memphis, Tennessee Floods 2011: Nearly 1,000 Homes Urged To Evacuate
From this article:
Graceland, Elvis Presley’s home and one of the city’s best known landmarks, is about a 20-minute drive from the river and in no danger of flooding, spokesman Kevin Kern said Friday.
“We’re on a hill, high and dry and open for business and will stay open,” Kern said.

Some more explanations regarding the “death” of Elvis.
You may recall that not too long ago, I shared a tidbit from a letter which Elvis/Jesse had written to someone years before I came to be in contact with him myself. In that excerpt he stated that the man who took his place that day was dying and had only a few months to live and that he had signed a contract agreeing to his part in Elvis’s “death” and that his widow receives money to this day even though she has since remarried.
My friend, Susan, sent me a link to a page which jarred my memory about how that letter by Jesse is backed up in some books written by several of Elvis’s former friends and associates. After I visited the link which Susan sent to me and read several accounts of how ill they believed Elvis was and what they said the autopsy proved, I recalled that letter by Jesse and how I had not yet tied the rumors and his letter together on my site. So below is the result of my realization:
Below is an excerpt from a book by Charlie Hodge titled Me’n Elvis:
Elvis: I just felt I should talk to you and let you see my side of it. Red West: yeah, I appreciate that. Yunno, thats what I wish we had done at the very first. Yunno. Maybe I could have understood it a little bit better. But ah, what’s done is done. You go on from there. I mean, I just, believe me when I tell you I wish you all the luck. I hope you go, right, stay right where you are, right on top for ah, forty more years man. I really do, I mean it with all my heart.
Elvis: Im working on it.
Red West: but I would like to see you get healthier, E. You hadn’t been healthy in awhile.
Elvis: oh yes, I am.
Red West: no you’re not.
Elvis: yes I am.
Red West: well, ok you say that.
Elvis: I just had an absolute complete physical head to toe, in the last ah, two weeks.
Red West: ok, well then I’m glad to hear you’re healthy.
Elvis: one of those things that is required by Lloyds of London, the insurance office.
Red West: well, then I don’t need to worry about it then.
As you can see below, this was before Elvis had explained to the recipient of the letter about his being Jesse…as he signed this letter Elvis:
Recall the John Doe toe tag:
Another Orion Pictures article:
With all of the news mentions now of the Navy SEALS who killed Osama bin Laden, this may be a good time for us to take another look at the Orion movie, Navy SEALS. I haven’t watched this movie in year.r.r.r.r.s, so I don’t really recall much of the plot. So, I need to re-watch it too. I don’t recall if this one had any Elvis flavored things in it or not. I do know that it involves martial arts.
Fighting the War on Terror as a Navy SEAL: “This Operation Was Their Super Bowl.”
As the death of Osama bin Laden continues to dominate the media, much attention has been focused on the elite unit of American commandos who infiltrated the heavily fortified compound in Pakistan where the al-Qaida leader was holed up.
They are known as SEALs, a special operations force of the U.S. Navy. The acronym is derived from the sailors’ ability to operate on sea, air and land. As a group, they endure months of grueling training before emerging to take on some of the most dangerous missions anywhere in the world.
Here is the storyline from Internet Movie Data Base…IMDB.com. At this site you may watch the trailer as well @ www.imdb.com/title/tt0100232/
While rescuing an American air crew captured by Mid-Eastern terrorists, Lieutenant Curran and his team of Navy SEALs discover evidence that the terrorists have come into possession of dangerous high-tech weapons.
Navy Seals (1990)
TUESDAY, MAY 10, 2011 – FOOTNOTE TO THE ABOVE ARTICLE:
I did watch Navy Seals last night. It definitely is a “guy” movie…lots of violence and military activities. But, it does show us some of what the Navy Seals go through and what they are capable of doing. It is a good movie to watch to help us all fully appreciate our military and what it took for them to find and kill bin Laden.
But, it does not have any Elvis flavored clues in it…other than a very prominent huge 8 on the front of a helicopter.

I am going to post three YouTube videos of Elvis performing the song “Johnny B Goode” as a lead in to an Orion movie article which I will write very soon.
In the meantime, just enjoy these beautiful performances of one of Elvis’s “standards“. There are many versions on YouTube…but I picked these three because there is a variety of venues, etc. Stay tuned for the Orion Pictures parallels to this song soon.
It’s recruiting time and despite being short and scrawny, Johnny Walker is America’s hottest young football prospect. His dilemma: should he take one of the many offers from college talent scouts or should he attend the local state college with his girlfriend and give up his football career?

The Fabulous Fonzerelli
Dedicated to Fonz Monteon, the singer, the friend, the “warrior”. The “Fabulous Fonzerelli”.

The fabulous voice of this Fonzerelli By Belkis Cuza Malé The first time that I saw him I recognized him immediately. Sure, ten years back somebody had given me a flyer where he appeared with then greyish hair, although the smile was the same. Then, I did not know that behind that smile there was a “warrior”, it was in his blood, half Kiowa and half Comanche. And as if that was not enough, his father is of Italian origin and his mother is of Barcelona. The result is Alfonse Monteon Armendarez, to which all call “Fonz”.I am seated in front of him, having coffee. He talks as much as I, but also knows to listen. We talk for hours in an interchange that travels from the present to the past and returns on it’s steps. He talks Spanish like an Italian and moves his hands and laughs and only remains still when I speak to him of Cuba and the horrors of the Castro dictatorship. And I know that he has understood everything, although I know he did not need my explanations, when he tells me that he has met other Cubans.I do not tell him, but I almost cry imagining him at four years old when he went to live in an orphanage in Dallas, the city where he was born in 1945. His description of that first day in the life of a boy who would grow there between little monks and casseroles (because he chose the kitchen as refuge) transfered me suddenly to some of those stories of Dickens. How not to suffer when one knows that there he is, separated at such an early age from his little sister (also in an orphanage for girls) and from his father, a patient, shut in a sanatarium?We returned to the present, an Engineer of profession, retired now from IBM; he has traveled across almost all of the country and some parts of Europe and for twenty years, he has been famous in Dallas, singing in prestigious night clubs, until suddenly, his life gives an unexpected turn. That day, seven years ago, he lost his wife in a terrible accident where he was also seriously hurt.It is not easy for me to think that this man of eternal smiles, without tears in his eyes, is the same man that says: “I like to see me like a happy person and able to entertain”. And I would add that iron will that drags obstacles with himself and he prevails over, which some call adversity, a word that Fonz seems to have exiled from his vocabulary. He knows that God has left him on the Earth like another “warrior” from that tribe of undefeated beings, armed with his voice and not a voice any.An Elvis Presley, a Pedro Infante, a Jorge Negrete? Imagine him. “Music is my life”, he says, and I believe him. Then. there are his songs, his world of generous delivery to a profession to which now he dedicates all his time to. If somebody asks him where he learned to sing, he will say that with the little monks, in the church, singing all along. “We had to sing at force…, whether you sang good or bad”, he says laughing. Soon, he himself was first in being surprised when their friends of adolescence asked him to sing.To the other side of the ample large window of the restaurant, thousands of black birds descend on a bordering field, and we see them take off in groups. Fonz is excited with grazing of the birds, as if of some way they also intoned a maintained greating song in the air like those black wings. And while they move away, shaking the dusk, he watches me fixedly and he says to me: “I want to sing in England and Japan”. I know that there is an audience waiting for him anywhere in the world. And not only do I have faith in him, but many do, like his friend, the prestigious guitarist of blues, John Nitzinger, who baptized him years ago as the “Fabulous Fonzerelli”, when Fonz opened one of his presentations in the Bass Hall of Fort Worth.Since then, the “Fabulous Fonzerelli” has not gotten tired to show that, it does not matter what, the world can continue enjoying “happy days”, like his homonym, the personage of the series of television. Without imitating anybody, with an ample repertoire that includes thousands of songs, Fonz is a star in his own right.Do you want to listen to him sing? To corroborate what I say here? Well, Fonz, the “Fabulous Fonzerelli”, has said to me: “Belkis, bring me to all the Cubans, I want to sing for them”. And yes, he is going to sing on the 24 of February, here in La Casa Azul: Heberto Padilla Cuban Cultural Center.(http://www.lacasaazulcubana.blogspot.com/), in Fort Worth, when we celebrate the day when the last war in Cuba from it’s independence of Spain began. We will have Cuban plates, sweets and songs like when the Cubans of the other exile in the XIX century met in New York or Key West in those unforgettable evenings, dreaming like us now about the independence of the Island. Thus is. (Published in Spanish: El Nuevo Herald, Miami. February 18, 2007 & Panorama, Fort Worth, Tx.

- Belkis Cuza-Malé
- Belkis was born in Guantánamo, Cuba. She studied Humanities in la Universidad de Oriente. In 1967 she married Cuban poet Heberto Padilla. Though initially a supporter of the Castro Revolution, Belkis later became a censor critic of his regime.

Today, I received my newsletter from Elvis Australia
This edition has a wonderful interview with Sam Tompson. Sam tells the truth about Elvis’s friendshiip with Jerry Lee Lewis and the well known incident at the Graceland gates when Jerry Lee came to visit…while a little intoxicated with a gun. You will note that the version which Sam recalls is exactly what Jerry Lee said himself in the YouTube video to which I provided a link some time ago. Elvis and Jerry Lee were definitiely friends unlike the stories which have been told. It is easy to understand that Elvis would have recorded the song with Jerry Lee prior to August, 1977 “…to help Jerry Lee out.” and also to lay the foundation for his continued behind-the-scenes recording and performing during the Orion years.
Here is the excerpt from Sam’s interview:
Also, from this same wonderful edition of the newsletter, there is a link to a rare rehearsal version of Elvis doing “What’d I Say?”. It is a really rocking version with some words changed to make it a little more risqué and also it is a long version. If you listen to Elvis on this version, you won’t have any trouble at all believing that it is Elvis with Jerry Lee Lewis on the post 1977 recording.
Again, I remind everyone that at the very end of the song with Jerry Lee, in the fade out and so faint that you really have to turn the volume all the way up and listen closely, you will hear Jerry Lee say “Man, you’re with it tonight, Elvis.” You can tell that they really were having a good time recording together. Also, the sense of humor of saying that at the end…where it is barely intelligible on the end of a song titled “What’d I Say?” is just so cute and funny.
Here is the link from the newsletter to this wonderful video:

My thanks to Susan for sharing this with us.
This is a followup to my earlier article:
There are many questions floating around about a particular song by the person who goes by the name of Jon Burrows. I am going to attempt to enter a link below where you may listen to this song, Stars and Stripes…at the end he recites the pledge of allegiance. This is a beautiful song…but, Jon Burrows IS NOT ELVIS…IS NOT JESSE. Some have speculated that the actual singer is Doug Church…or it may be the guy in the Jon Burrows photo who is actually Alfonse Monteon Armendarez, the friend ofBelkis Cuza Malé. Hers is the book titled “Elvis: The Unquiet Grave or The True Story of Jon Burrows.“
The man she knew was not Elvis…Jesse has stated that it is not him in her book.Therefore, I certainly do not recommend her book…especially at the price of $99.00
Hopefully this link will play this song. If you listen carefully, you will recognize that it is not Elvis/Jesse.
The following Email was sent to me today by a close friend who has known me for years. He has met my husband and me. We have enjoyed three long visits with him. I thank him for the following message which he wrote for my site in order that my visitors may understand some background information:

You may recall that a while back, as part of my on-going proof about the Elvis and Orion Pictures connection, that I posted the cover of a comic book from the Army of Darknessseries.
The cover I posted showed an Elvis type character on the front and the title was Hail to the King. Ash Williams, the hero in this series, is fashioned to look and have similarities to Elvis. Remember, the Jaycee’s speech which Elvis gave when he was chosen as one of the Outstanding Young Men…recall his remark in that speech: “…I was the hero in the comic books….”.
My entire earlier article, complete with all photos, is shown at the bottom of this article.
Today I learned that a new Army of Darkness game app. for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad has just been released.
Below is a snapshot from the new game showing the hero…once more you will easily recognize that the hero is fashioned to look like Elvis.

Way to go, Jesse!!!
For those visitors who may not have viewed my two pages devoted to the Orion the singer and Orion Pictures evidence, below are the links to those two pages. I have added much more Orion material throughout my Current News and Events pages, as well.
The following is a Footnote added Wednesday, May 18, 2011: to the article which I posted on Monday May 16th containing the message written by my good friend. My heartfelt thanks to my friend for writing the above knowledgeable article for my site.
