CAPTAIN AMERICA NEWS: It has been officially announced that there will be a prequel to Capt America. No doubt first question for us is : "will they include Heinz Kruger in the prequel?" Query #2: Will RA have the time available from filming THE HOBBIT, if Heinz is indeed written into the script?

RANetdotcom on twitter found an RA interview from 2004 with quotes from him about N&S..
Poster Anonymous commented below that the tree sprig RA held during the traditional NZ ceremony is from the Pohutukawa tree(photo above). See comment below and a NZ website providing the tree's history. It's used as their traditional Christmas tree. http://www.nzhistory.net.nz/media/photo/pohutukawa-flowers
Comment from Anonymous: >I think it was a 'bunch of leaves' from a pohutukawa, because the Maori people of the land regarded the pohutukawa as one of the chiefly trees and individual ones were sacred.In everyday life a pohutukawa tree was planted in memory of chiefs, battlefields, or birth of a chief’s son. Healing power was recognised in bark juice and nectar for diverse complaints. <

Sue's Reply: >Thank you Anon. that sounds very interesting. I must look it up on Google. I must say that New Zealand people seem to respect the traditions of the Maori people, which isn't unfortunately true of Australia and aboriginals. We could learn a lot from these people (as we can from British folklore). Plants are amazing things and can be the answer to a lot of health problems if we only took the time to discover! <

Dancing's theme last night was 'PATRIOT GAMES':
Where are you Laura? Didn't you tell us a few mos ago that you do not receive Dancing with the Stars, and really enjoy any vids posted here? Well, my dear, check out the following clip and enjoy! The live action had me feeling verrrry patriotic..teehee. Kirstie appears to have pulled herself together and dropped the drama queen overdrive mode she demonstrated for a couple wks. Therefore, her and her partner are back - although it's really due to his performance..Maks could've danced by himself and received even higher marks:) Keep in mind that he's Russian and she's 60yrs old.
Oh, having second thoughts..maybe it's not a good idea--don't know if it will really be appreciated. Afterall, how many RA fans enjoy watching a TDH tattooed guy gracefully moving about in black leather pants....hahaha...:)
Just remembered there was actually another time when the red-white&blue looked even better...
POLL RESULT: Recent MIT study results claim MEN are more inclined to utter those 3 li'l words with a humungous meaning *I Love You.* Could an MIT psychologist be wrong? Findings sound quite official when given that imprimatur, do they not? Do you believe it? Well, when we take into consideration the fact that some men cynically utter those words if they're convinced you're more likely to 'advance' the relationship, the study results do indeed become more credible. Second reason for their declaration is an assertion that many men are more needy than most females assume them to be. That sounds plausible as well, doesn't it. (our recent poll result is the last one in sidebar)
From the below website: >A new study shows when it comes to professing love in a heterosexual relationship it’s the man that’s more likely to utter those three little words. Josh Ackerman, a psychologist who teaches at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, recently published a study that pinpoints which of the sexes fesses up to love first.
The study found that 64 percent of people (wrongly) believe women initiate the love talk. Ackerman says, “We are constantly bombarded by this idea that love is about women, in a sense. Women are the more emotional ones, and men hide their feelings. But that doesn’t necessarily appear to be the case.” No, siree.
Ackerman and his team interviewed 205 straight males and females and questioned them about past and present relationships and who said “I love you” first in the relationship. The study revealed that men “were more likely to have said “I love you” first.”<
