THE JIVE ACES: BRING ME SUNSHINE
The 1947 UFO crash in Roswell, New Mexico was no accident! It was a diversion whereupon Victoria, the pregnant alien from Antares journeyed to Canada assisted by Navajo Indians who were close friends to a Captain in the Royal Canadian Mounties. Her son, Ontario Rose, was born on his ranch. The Captain raises the extra-terrestrial genius while Ontario's real father is an elderly planetary forefather. Their homespun adventurewith a touch of humor unfolds the story of alien inhabitation of earth today.

EXPLANATION OF TLS BESTOWING KNIGHTHOOD
Recently on the 94th Birthday of SPEC CAMPEN (born August 5, 1920), I in behalf of THE LINCOLN STUDIO for the fine arts and film production bestowed upon our prestigious friend "KNIGHTHOOD" Notice the word in quotes. I do not have the official authority to such a dubbing other than to bring to the attention and formally recognize to my fellow human beings the laurels that should be given any outstanding citizen, perhaps if a Britain, would be recognized as such by the King and Queen of England worthy of officially bearing the title of SIR or DAME or even LADY. Hypothetically speaking, such criteria a man like myself could never qualify for even a subtle nomination, though I suggested such laurels be given to outstanding human beings in our country and throughout the world! I realize that the world offers the Noble Peace prize and gives recognition and money but no such title. I was hoping in initiating bestowment of knighthood would stimulate such a discussion among world leaders to consider ending the monopoly the British have on "DUBBING" for outstanding people in humanity and the fine arts. For now I will limit myself to candidates of The Lincoln Studio Associates, though just about all are outstanding, so few should garner the title lest it bear little meaning. A person who continues to inspire his fellow ladies and gentlemen and children too, continually for 94 years I bet few of my colleagues would challenge. It can be said that Titles are moot, two dollars and a title will buy you a cup of coffee ... I remember well the closing scene of L. Frank Baum's "The Wizard of Oz" that the old geezer's wisdom made his black bag "magic" by the ability to make the wanting ones and their neighbors truly "SEE" the inner qualities and strengths within us by giving such appropriate titles.

SIR SPEC CAMPEN SERVING HIS COUNTRY IN 1942
Just a Typewriter... He lived at Rose Haven Nursing Home (Roseburg , OR ) for years. Paul Smith, the man with extra ordinary talent was born on September 21, 1921, with severe cerebral palsy. Not only had Paul beaten the odds of a life with spastic cerebral palsy, a disability that impeded his speech and mobility but also taught himself to become a master artist as well as a terrific chess player even after being devoid of a formal education as a child. "When typing, Paul used his left hand to steady his right one. Since he couldn't press two keys at the same time he almost always locked the shift key down and made his pictures using the symbols at the top of the number keys. In other words, his pictures were based on these characters ..... @ # $ % ^ & * ( )_ .
Across seven decades, Paul created hundreds of pictures. He often gave the originals away. Sometimes, but not always, he kept or received a copy for his own records. As his mastery of the typewriter grew, he developed techniques to create shadings, colors, and textures that made his work resemble pencil or charcoal drawings." This great man passed away on June 25, 2009, but left behind a collection of his amazing artwork that will be an inspiration for many. When life closes a door, God opens a window. "I Shall Look At The World Through Tears. Perhaps I Shall See Things That, Dry-Eyed, I Could Not See"

THE LINCOLN STUDIO for the fine arts and film productions just introduced on its website for your visual enjoyment THE WALL OF PASSION. It will be divided into three categories: THE LOVE OF KISSING (a subject dear to my heart) commences with two photos of the sculpture by Auguste Rodin entitled THE KISS. This category with all photos numbered will feature famous in screen kisses and most adorable photos of our KISSING COUSINS with hide and fur engaged in pressing lips in fond friendship. The animal photos will also be showcased on our ZOOPA page! We welcome any photos that are appropriate for posting. Keep in mind we strive to continue publishing materials suitable for ALL GENERAL AUDIENCE IN A POSITIVE LIGHT. The second category will come a little later THE LOVE OF CULINARY DELIGHTS and the third category THE ART OF EMOTION all three intertwined in our daily course of life. The idea came to me what I will do to the walls of a physical place housing TLS perhaps in the near future that will also be an annex art gallery to ANNE'S VISUAL ART STUDIO in Richmond VA the past 17 years who currently has a page on TLS on the world wide web: www.TheLincolnStudio.com/Anne_Visual_Art_Studio.html
The entire TLS building will be a museum to classic media and house a romantic cafe and gift shoppe.

WELCOME ONE & ALL TO THIS MY NEW COLUMN!
It's well known that film historians and film buffs of all stripes are quick to submit a list of their supposed GREATEST films based on their personal criteria of excellence in creativity and technical achievement.
To present a list of FAVORITE films is a more subtle matter. A wisp of memory - a silent smile to ones lips - a catch of ones breath in sadness or joy - an emotional attachment not predicated by empirical study - even cynicism is what this sort of list is created by.
And because of the list's PERSONAL nature - in turn, reveals as much about its writer as the aforementioned list.
I PROPOSE THE FOLLOWING:
This can be done singularly as a self-examination or better done among friends - each submitting their lists for scrutiny and cross-discussion. Determining the nature of YOUR PERSONALITY that prompted your selections will bring a new self-awareness and if done in a group can be insightfully and hopefully FUN! All best! Patrick Symes
(my personal favorites NOT in order of my preference):
Your Assignment should you choose to enjoy a fun and insightful time ...
Plenty of paper and pen for you and your friends make a list secretly at first of your ten favorite films.
Then share with each other why you like them. Keep it pleasant!

HISTORY OF THE HUMAN RACE IN JUST 2 MINUTES
At birth we boarded the train and met our parents, and we believe they will always travel on our side. However, at some station our parents will step down from the train, leaving us on this journey alone. As time goes by, other people will board the train; and they will be significant i.e. our siblings, friends, children, and even the love of our life. Many will step down and leave a permanent vacuum. Others will go so unnoticed that we don't realize they vacated their seats. This train ride will be full of joy, sorrow, fantasy, expectations, hellos, goodbyes, and farewells. Success consists of having a good relationship with all passengers requiring that we give the best of ourselves. The mystery to everyone is: We do not know at which station we ourselves will step down. So, we must live in the best way, love, forgive, and offer the best of who we are. It is important to do this because when the time comes for us to step down and leave our seat empty we should leave behind beautiful memories for those who will continue to travel on the train of life. I wish you a joyful journey on the train of life. Reap success and give lots of love. More importantly, thank God for the journey. Lastly, I thank you for being one of the passengers on my train.

CARS THAT NEVER MADE IT...
They were pure fantasy on wheels, machines designed to make the heart race and the mind ask, "What if?" These 1950's concept cars were automotive art built to attract public attention, test wild engineering ideas and give motorists a fleeting glimpse down the highway of tomorrow.
1956 OLDSMOBILE GOLDEN ROCKET
On an ordinary morn in the city that never sleeps ... was awakened by a thunder not caused by rain clouds but by haunting weeps.
Two brave towers standing invincible guarding a Manhattan skyline took a mortal assault ... at first, was this an accident or was someone at fault?
Not since Pearl Harbor did foreign foes pierce our nation's heart but this fateful pre-autumn day you could not tell Americans apart!
For whatever creed, race or diversity we were ... We stood proud Americans one in accord, clear and focused one nation united without any blur!
We were harmed but not broken and the ordinary became heroes who died saving others ... because in these times of turmoil we realize we truly are sisters and brothers.
More than a decade has passed and Freedom Tower thrusts against the scarred sky ... We will always remember the fire fighters, police, and common folks who before their time all came to die ... Many who had a chance to call their loved ones just to say Goodbye!
And we love them too ... Those thousands in the Twin Towers of 9-11 in the Nation of red, white and blue!

"AMERICA UNDER SIEGE ... 9-11" by RICHARD C. BURRIESCI
When the world was young was there murder, lies and deceit ... Indeed there was! There were sins of ordinarily decent Men and Women too, when the world was young. There were rainbows that trumpeted the skies after a violent storm and always without fail or exception, there were daily serene sunrises to greet us forever always new and gloriously divine painted sunsets to bid us adeiu. Violence always had its counterpart to make us pensive and cope with our turmoils making us get through. Nature was and remains a nurturing mother always yielding the very best of refreshments in spite of human beings violence towards her trees, waters, wondrous wildness and beloved animals!
When the World was young it was really not much different than the Earth becoming a senior citizen; maybe perhaps a few billion more human beings, many from all races and creeds self righeous and arrogant exercising control over our most obedient mother and partner with her Creator. Indeed, God reminds us forever daily that when the world was young it remains young and vibrant always fresh and forever hopeful even in
Death because We are one with Him and we too remain young. Nature has always and continues to forgive our tresspasses against her and she continues to nurture us because we truly ARE forever young!

MANHATTAN ONCE CALLED MANNAHATTA 400 YRS AGO
IS GARDEN OF EDEN TO SOME
"New York City seems about as far removed from its natural state as any spot on the planet. Now a new study reveals what Manhattan looked like before it became a concrete jungle. Once known as Mannahatta — the land of many hills — in the Lenape Native American dialect, New York was a lush island paradise 400 years ago. Times Square used to be an old-growth forest, Harlem was a ranging meadow, and downtown was wetlands. Streams teemed with fish. Wolves, mountain lion, elk and deer roamed the rolling hills." -WIKIPEDIA (Secrets of New York)
This was the Manhattan Giovanni da Verrazano saw as he passed by it in 1524 and what Henry Hudson explored in 1609. I imagine it looked much the same way when dinosaurs tromped the future Fifth Avenue 10,000 years ago! The Lenape Tribe were not real estate moguls selling their island paradise to the Dutch in 1629 brokered by Peter Minuet for supposingly the equivilent of $24.00 which has since been disputed. Still the value was a real steal. If you think about it, this may very well have been the first crime in New York City. Any killings prior to the Europeans coming to America here in the future Gotham City may have been solely for self-preservation. The fictitious Fred Flintstone was not around to confirm this so this remains up for speculation. What is a fact is that literally millions and millions of men, women and children in the past four centuries tromped and often desecrated a once near Utopia making it a concrete jungle today. Yet we love and remain faithful to our fare city as so we should. In a different sense it has become a unique Utopia supporting and nourishing a melting pot of our civilization. Its metaphorical darkness has been overwhelmed by its light in culture, diversity and genuine richness. I am one born on Manhattan Island in 1954 and continue to remain loyal and proud to be a New Yawker! With its many flaws it has remained a garden of Eden to those of us who see perfection among the rugged turf and blemishes of life quick to forgive and make anew with each sunrise.
FOR THOSE OF YOU WHO HAVE THEIR HEART IN NEW YORK CITY!
