that was AW alum Kim Rhodes (ex-Cindy, who also appears
from time to time on "Supernatural") — a cancer survivor — in a Chevrolet
commercial in support of World Cancer Day on February 4 that aired
during the Super Bowl. "Thank you so much," she tweeted in response to
the spot airing. "I’ve survived an 'easy' cancer but lost my mother
after a long battle. Thank you #chevycommercial for work I am proud of.
The amazing @tedmattison conveyed so much we never talk about. The
burden and joy of supporting someone with cancer. So glad he was my
hubs." She later explained her initial tweets, noting, "In regards to
'easy' cancer... the quotes were because so many I know had it so much
harder. I got all of mine with surgery... I sat with my friend Kevin in
his last months, after a year of not being able to eat solid food,
seeing his mother weep... I had it 'easy'. But there is NO easy cancer.
We deserve a cure. And may blessings be with those fighting it and those
who love them."

Wasn't Charles Keating great in the
final episode of Hercules as Zeus???
Gift Maker <email@example.com>
Hi! My name is Melissa, and I am an avid AW fan. I
wanted to pass this along to you in hopes that you could also spread the
word. In order to honor the contributions the cast and crew of AW has made
for the past 35 years, I established two memorial funds as a way of giving
back. Most recently, I had the honor of attending an online chat with
Victoria Wyndham and Charles Keating. When I told them about the two funds
and the possibility of a dedication ceremony next year, they immediately
said they wanted to attend! Now, it is up to us to make this a reality.
The first is a bench that has been designated for us (provided we raise
the necessary funds) in Central Park, New York, NY. The selected bench
(#03836) is located on the Lake under Cherry Hill. The bench sits under a
shady tree, which offers some privacy in this otherwise popular place. To
the right is Bow Bridge, a landmark that many call one of the most
beautiful small bridges in the world, and in the distance, part of the
Manhattan skyline. This truly is a beautiful place, and to me, offers a
mixture of quiet reflection and inspiration. A plaque will be placed on
our bench with an inscription dedicating it to the cast and crew of
Another World. In order to secure the bench in the name of AW fans,
we must raise $5,000. Don’t fret at that large amount! We already have
10% of that in! All donations are fully tax-deductible, and the money
raised will contribute to the maintenance of the bench and the surrounding
area. NO gift is too small (or too large!) Just imagine if every AW fan
donated just $5 to this last tribute. This is one way that we can show the
world how much AW meant to us and show the cast, the crew and all who pass
in the park that AW lives on. If you would like to contribute,
please make your check payable to: Central Park Conservancy Bench Fund,
and write on it "AW Fan Gift." Please mail your check to:
Central Park Conservancy, 14 East 60th Street, New York, NY 10022.
The other fund is a memorial fund that has been established in the name of
Another World for the benefit of the Actor’s Fund of America. This
not-for-profit agency provides for the welfare of all entertainment
professionals. Founded in 1882, the Fund provides comprehensive human
services, in addition to emergency grants for essentials such as food,
rent, and medical care to individuals who have spent five qualifying years
in the entertainment industry. The Fund also provides supportive housing:
1) Nursing Home and Assisted Living Care Facility for aging entertainment
professionals, 2) The Aurora for special low-income groups, and 3) The
Palm View for entertainment professionals with HIV/AIDS. This agency
was selected due to its leadership in the entertainment industry, the
extensive and encompassing resources they offer, their national presence,
and in honor of the contribution that the cast and crew of AW have given
to the entertainment industry for 35 years. Your contribution is
fully tax-deductible and will be used to support the agency is both
programmatic and operational costs. For more information on the Fund,
please visit their website at www.actorsfund.org
If you would like to contribute, please make your check payable to
"The Actor’s Fund of America," and write on it, "AW Fan
Gift." Please mail your check to: The Actor’s Fund of America c/o
Development Department 729 Seventh Avenue, 10th Floor New York, NY 10019.
For all of who have already given, thank you. Please do not feel pressure
to give, but remember every little bit helps! If you have any questions,
please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
NBC has canceled Another World! Boo-hoo!!!

everyone must help. We need to convince CTV (in Canada) to buy the show

syndication around the world (like many of the talk shows) & make a
large profit much like CBS does with B&B.

Hey, everyone. Last year, Charles Keating (Carl) was on
Delphi to chat. We got to send him email, too. I sent him an email
telling him how much I loved him in the 80's miniseries "Fresno"
(a Falcon Crest/Dallas spoof with Carol Burnett; he played her butler and
he was really funny). He replied!!! I am so thrilled. He said:
Date sent: Sun, 01 Mar 1998 21:30:15 -0500 (EST)
Yes, that last scene with Carol Burnett, playing her chauffeur in Fresno
was one of my favorites. Thanks for watching.
