  1. I missed their performance too, I must have fell asleep right before they went on. I can't find anything on youtube yet. Oh well, I'm sure someone will post it soon. Congratulations Robert !
  2. I have been waiting for over a year, for the DVD of my dreams, to see Led Zeppelin live in 07. I know everyone is waiting also, but I want to know some details about why it is taking so long. Jimmy has put out some awsome DVDs in the the past so why is this one taking so long. I know that he is a perfectionist but I don't care, I just want to see it already!
  3. This was also a big debate before the 07 concert, and I knew they would call themselves Led Zeppelin and I wanted them to 100%. But now if Robert won't be there,there is no Led Zeppelin.I know that's kind of strong, but that's how I feel.
  4. please correct if I am wrong, but did'nt our beloved Robert do a fundraiser for a neighbor of his who had cancer. If I am correct about that, then you can see that no matter where you live or who you are sometimes we just need some help. If anyone knows about how that turned out please bring me up to date.
  5. ateda You are so right about fighting, and the PBS show did not go into all the details about each case, all I can say about you is that your wife is very lucky to have you to by her side to fight for her life. Everybody has different and complicated situations and nobody should have to die before their time due to their insurance policy's bottom line.
  6. I am sorry to hear that your wife had to go through such an ordeal with her health, and I do hope she has made or is making a full recovery. However I still don't know why you still think that my coments are about expecting the Goverment to take care of things. I am mostly talking about private health care and health care provided through a persons job.
  7. That's pretty cold, I used to be able to get into an real conversation on this site, boy how it has changed.
  8. If I knew how to post a picture of my lovely cat, I would and don't try to explain it to me, it gives me too much stress. But if anyone wants to talk about their cats and the things they do, I would love to hear about it.
  9. Well I guess I am dealing with a bunch of people who this subject has not effected their lives yet, and God willing it won't. If anyone would like to discuss the healthcare system in the U.S., not how the ocean can cure everything, than please do.
  10. Why don't you email that to someone who is waiting untill they turn 65 so they can get their last cancer treatment.
  11. I don't know how you got that out of what I said. If you saw the show, you would know it is not a matter of people just waiting around their whole life doing nothing and then when they get sick with a major illness such as cancer, or as in the case of of one man, who lost his leg due to diabetis, expect the goverment to help them. For most people this is not the case. This man worked his whole life,and had to stop becouse he could not stand anymore, so he had to be out of work and his health care was running out becouse they took so long to get him a permanent prosthetic leg. All he wanted to do was get it so he could return to work. This was just one of the stories in the program. So you see it is not as simple as you put it. People who have worked hard and paid into insurance their whole lives are dying through no fault of their own
  12. Thanks, that gave me some insight on your country's system. If anyone else would like to tell me about their healthcare system, please do I am very interested.
  13. Thanks for posting that, just listened to Ten Years Gone, one of my favourite Zep songs, and they did a great job!
  14. You are very smart in taking this into consideration concerning where you are to live. If you don't have a job here that offers a good health plan, or if you don't make enough to buy private insurance, which is extremely expensive you are pretty much out of luck. I would like to know about the quality of your system over there.
  15. Last night I saw this program, and I was so upset about how badly people are treated in the U.S. becouse they don't have any health care. I live here, and I must say I am very disgusted with it all. The stories of those people, just broke my heart. If anyone saw that program, tell me what you thought of it. Or if you have any thoughts on this subject, I would like to hear them.

    If anyone on this forum has had the misfortune of going through Ike, and need to talk about it, please feel free to do so, I am here for you.

    This is to all Texans, I hope from the bottom of my heart that life is getting better after Ike. It has been a little over 2 weeks, and people who live on the other side of the street of me still do not have electric. This is such a major disgrace considering we are the power capital of the U.S. The power companies are blaming downed trees that took down power lines, well if we all had our power lines under ground we would not have had such destruction in our state. For people who dont understand what we are going through, you must realize that it is very hot and humid here most of the time between March and November. So many people are still waiting on extremly long lines for ice water and food. Well I just want to let you know that I understand what you are still going through, and hoping things will get better soon. And as a side note, the place where Robert Plant and Allison Krauss were to perform was damaged so badly that it has been cancelled.

    Hey everyone out there, I live in Houston and here is an update on Ike for anyone who is interested. Well let me start by saying that ever since hurricane Alicia, 25 years ago, I have always gotten prepared whenever we have a chance of a hurricane coming our way. But I must say I did not expect Ike to be as devistating as it was. It was the scarriest thing I have ever been through. The strong howling winds and relentless rain started late friday night, and did'nt let up untill mid Saturday morning. Electric, gas and telephone all went out, and water had to be tested . After all was said and done I realized I was really blessed and suffered only minor damage compared to those poor souls who live on Galveston Island which is about 30 miles away from me. All my power was restored yesterday, and things are starting to get back to normal. But for many people it will take much longer. So many people have to wait on long lines for food, ice, water and gas. And I wish them Gods speed in their recovery.
  19. I am so sorry for your loss. I would have responded sooner, but I have not been here lately. If you ever feel like talking, please know that there are people who care, right here.
  20. To me this very upsetting, yes this is a very private matter just between him and his wife, unless you are running for the president of USA. When he made it public that his wife was batteling cancer, and that the most important thing in his life was to help her through this I thought he was such a devoted husband. But to now find out that he was having an affair during that time, well I am very dissapointed to say the least.
  21. This was truley a shock when I heard the news this morning, becouse I did'nt even know he was sick. I always wanted to see him live but never got the chance. I did like his TV show, it was for the most part, based on his life. He did raise his sister's children, becouse of problems she was having. When I found out that he stepped in at her sister's time of need, and did'nt turn his back on them, it really showed me that he was a very special person, he was a good soul, God bless him.
  22. I have never played any of those games, but I have heard of them and my kids have played them. My son asked me why Led Zeppelin is not involved in all this, and I have thought about it, in my opinion anything that would expose young people to them can't be bad. I would love everyone to know and appreciate Led Zeppelin as much as I do. But I also understand that they do not want to be commercialized spelling? like so many other bands. If they were to do this they would have to have an entire game devoted to them after all they are the greastest rock band in history, and how can anyone choose just a couple Led Zeppelin songs, that's impossible. I do want everyone to know and love our boys as much as I do, and I feel this is a good way to get that done. Well that's just my opinion.
