Here is one of those wacky comedy that is science fiction. Sometimes, one would have to take a lighter side of all the seriousness of science fiction in general.
Here is the comedy show that depicts the male humanoid alien and a human female. They come together as roommates in a house. Mork is sent to Earth in order to fit into the human society and norms.
Mork is played by Robin William and Mindy is played by Pam Dawber. The show ran from 1978 to 1982.
Mork usually greet people with “Nanu-Nanu.” with the sideway “Vulcan-greeting.
My cousin Melissa ad I used to watch this sitcom as kids. We have enjoyed Mork’s strange antics and how Mindy reacts to his unusual quirks.
There is not very many sitcoms that features any science fiction theme. Whenever I have seen a few, they were short-lived due to budget and lack of interests from audiences.
The show “Mork and Mindy” was the idea taken from the earlier science-fiction comedy My Favorite Martian.
So this is another blog entry that seems to interest me when Melissa and I used to watch this show whenever it aired on television.
Anyway; I believe this is about it for now. Or should it say “we”. 🙂
This is very much about what I have written about some time ago concerning “copy-rights”
The mission of WordPress.com is to democratize publishing. We’re inspired every day by the ways creators use our platform to bring their voices to the world. Unfortunately, we also see many cases of censorship aimed at WordPress.com authors and users.
One area where we’ve seen a number of problems is the censoring of criticism through abuse of copyright law. Two recentcases of abuse really caught our attention and made us think that we needed to take action to fight back on behalf of our users and everyone who believes in the internet’s promise for free expression.
Censorship by DMCA
A common form of censorship by copyright stems from improper use of legal creations called DMCA takedown notices. The DMCA stands for the “Digital Millennium Copyright Act,” which is a US federal law that created a system for protecting copyrights online. The DMCA system works pretty well, but has a…

Greetings from the Collective; A quick word from 7 of 77; I know it is rather late, but I will be posting new blogs when I have a chance. Apparently; this Borg drone has been very busy with various assigned tasks in the cube.
We may be able to add a few quick thoughts from 7 of 77 in various parts of the Blorg site besides posting regular blog posts in order to keep it alive and running in peak efficiency. At this point; there will be a few test “Quick Thoughts” from a mobile app and will be using the voice recognition app along with it so be aware of numerous spelling and grammatical errors. In other words; 7 of 77’s syntax will change between the regular blog posts.
7 of 77 is writing this update using the online text editor, which is a poor substitute of either Microsoft Word and Live Writer.
7 of 77 has several maintenance routines done on her system which explains her unavailability. She will be getting the auditory sensor scanned later today when she returns to maintenance bay.
So this concludes the quick update for today and we will return to blogging as soon as possible.
Sorry no quote for this update at this time. 😦
So be efficient,
7 of 77
The name "Snapstur" has been assimilated! She is no longer an individual as she is added to the Collective. As the “About 7 of 77” page has been updated as new information is added.
From now on; This individual is known as 7 of 77 as a Borg.
Yes, this blog site has been changed as you have noticed sometime ago. I can hear many of you are saying, "Hey, what in the world is she doing to her blog?!?!?" The background, Gravatar and Blavatar images, title and tagline has been changed in order that the blog will be taking on a new direction or angle. Even the mobile version has been fixed and updated so that everyone can read the blogs on the mobile phones, or tablets (yes, even iPads, Apple mavens).
I have added the "Blog To Follow" Side-bar that has the variety of blog and other sites to discovers. No, it’s not just science-fiction. There is a little something for everyone.
So there will still be new blogs about my adventures in science fiction and love for science fiction characters especially Star Trek.
Speaking of Star Trek; I have added a few pages about a few websites that are devoted to Star Trek. So lets give a warm welcome to Trek.fm and TREKZONE.org as you can visit their websites to discover the adventure of Star Trek.
So there will be a lot of Star Trek and science fiction related blog articles in the coming weeks and months. As I said, a new direction.
Yes, I will continue to post some real life blogs about myself and my family. Since I have another poignant blog entry to post. I will be posting each entries about 2 to 4 times a week, rather than every day, depending on the situation.
Another few things are the additions of poetry and humor blog entries. They will be posted when appropriate. So I will endeavor to "assimilate" as much poetry and humor as possible. So it will not be a be a depressing, technological, or science fiction heavy blog-site as I love to share about my life, my thoughts, and my imaginations.
So there will still be a variety of blog entries for me to write and post. Science fiction, fictions of other genres, non-fiction, poetry, humor, and my real-life journey of adventures.
I prefer that change will be good here and hoping to be as adventurous as possible besides being a beacon of hope for everyone to come to.
Oh, and guess what!?!? I will be adding little surprises at the end of each blog entries. So you will have to guess what it might be. So starting this month of August, I will be implementing this addition at the end of each blog entry. So be on the look-out for them at the end of each blog entry.
Anyway; that is it for now till the next update in September. I hope you will enjoy the newly assimilated blog site as it has changed and will continue to be updated as you read about my life journey and adventures.
We hope you will enjoy this revamped blog-site as you visit.
I remember a show that I used to watch for a long time as a kid. This time it’s not a science fiction TV show. Surprised? I bet!
Well, I remembered whenever I watched this TV show I recall how those two men have been called to various emergencies when they get the call by a dispatcher.
So for this 51st blog entry, I would like to devote this to the TV show that I used to watch on TV. I don’t remember if I missed an episode or a few, but I do remember watching this show on television.
It is a show based on the real-life emergency scenarios whether it is rescuing a cat from a tree to rushing to the “Five-Alarm” fire in progress. Each episode has the lesson in safety which I really like and they kept my attention and very educational.
Guessed it yet? Well, it’s about two gentlemen, Roy DeSoto and John Gates, who were often alerted to the various emergencies being their unit numeral, “Squad 51”.
Yes, I’m dropping a lot of clues here and you could have guessed it by now that it is called “Emergency!”. The blog entry title should have been an obvious answer as I write about them.
So now I have the DVDs of this show so that I can watch them again. I have not gotten around to doing so yet, but I will soon enough.
So I was growing up learning the terms like paramedic, CPR, IV, oxygen, etc… Even one of my uncles was a paramedic for years before he has retired. I will re-post that blog later when the time comes.
Anyway; this show “Emergency!” has been one of my favorite TV shows that is not science fiction. They also had an aminated show based on the similar format geared for children so they can learn the lesson in safety, which is pretty neat.
It’s funny that I’ve always wanted to get a fire-engine and now I have it many years later as a collective for nostalgia. Something to remember the show with.
I think this is about it for now. I decided to write about a show that a numeral 51 in it and it’s called “Emergency!”. This 51st blog marks the next goal in writing the blogs. So we will meet again next time.
This is an old blog that I have posted a few years ago. I think it bears re-posting from previous posts. It is one that I hope that people will learn and understand that I have a purpose here on Earth. I am also hoping this will touch everyone’s heart as well. Yes, It was one of those “heart-stopping” moment in my life that I wish to share with you.
I thought that I would begin this Spiritual Juorney with a story or testimony. I was led by the Cosmic Guidance to share this with you in this blog.
It all began many years ago (About around 19880 to 82 I cannot recall the date). I was a teenager sitting on the floor very close to the TV set for I was visually impaired. I was in the living room surrounded by several unsavory people. I was not aware of the danger that was very present at that moment in time and place. I hadn’t paid attention to the drug deals in progress between Jimmy who was married to my mother and the other drug dealers until I heard loud arguments from them. Well, I simply shrugged off not thinking it was another one of those normal drug deals going bad. Then, all the men went out tho mobile home through the back door with Jimmy chasing them. The next thing I knew was that I heard loud popping, They were gun-shots ranging outside. Then, I heard a voice, "Get down!" and a hand gently and firmly pushed me down to the floor. As I was splayed face-down on the floor; I’ve heard more gun-shots. Some bullets have penetrated the thin walls of the mobile home. My mother is no where near me when all this has transpired. She was in another part of the living room when this incident happened. When it was all over; I have no idea that there is a presence whose hand has pushed me down to shield me from the cross-fire. We did some investigating on our own and have found that several holes have shown that the projectile has narrowly missed my head. I wouldn’t be here if I were still sitting up.
I didn’t know that the Cosmic Guidance has sent a messenger here. I begin to understand the significance of this testimony when I learn of my purpose of being here on this planet Earth. Now I learn that the Higher Power is always there to protect me. I now know that He has something greater in store for me such as ministering to the mentaly challenged folks and of those who are in the Inter-Relay Chat Network. Yes, I was a teenager who has been in such an unfortunate situation, but I have come out of it as a better believer. If the Presence wasn’t there to protect from those bullets, I would have been in the wrong place at the wrong time. It goes to show that we are all here for a purpose. Don’t treat it as if nothing exist.
I hope that you are encouraged by this and be encouraged that the Cosmic Guidance is with you wherever you go. I have shared this testimony on several websites and I really hope that the people would be encouraged by them.
Well, I believe this is about it for this blog entry. I hope you are encouraged and warmed by this miracle. Until next time, I’ll write again.
There are some things that we have to keep to ourselves, and not tell everyone about them. Some secrets are good and some secrets are bad.
I have been hiding from the world because I was hurt for so many years and I have suffered. I didn’t start hiding till 1976 when the “hell” began. So that was when I really hid within my mind in order to escape the harsh reality of being violated and getting hurt.
As you read this, notice that I have never had any crush on any real human being especially the male until at a much later date.
Well, I have a lot of secret fantasies as I have been growing up. Some are good and some are bad. I started having these imaginary friends when I was about eight years old. And I have continued to this day to have friends who are imaginary.
When I was about eight years old; I have fantasized about the TV series characters from the show “Emergency!”. I’ve thought of them as such cute guys, and that they’re heroes. Well, then, moved on to the Star Trek characters between Spock and McCoy. I sometimes; fantasized about the “Six Million Dollar Man”. I think those are pretty normal fantasies.
Then, I moved on to Maya of Space 1999, which was an oddity since I usually fantasized about the men.
Then, came my first love fantasy in 1978; when the TV show, Space Academy aired. I’ve started with one of the cadets on the show named, “Chris”, and then “Irgo” who was an RF silicon-based life form. Irgo was truly my first alien love interest. I did not think anyone would believe me when I tell them that I was in love with “Irgo” So that was one of my secret love fantasies. Then, there was a number of alien beings that I was in love with and been hiding my real love for so long because I’ve feared ridicule. For I’ve been ridiculed because of my hearing and vision deficiencies.
I did not realize that I have such an affinity for such fantasy creatures. Maybe it was because I’m an outcast of the society? I had wanted to fit in with my peers and I have difficulty feeling included in their activities.
Well, then, I fantasized about the computer named “Hal” in the movie 2001: Space Odyssey. I did not realize that I have also such an affinity for artificial life forms until at a much later time. Then, there was “Kitt” of Knight Rider that I have thought of for a while but have not really gotten interested in him till at a much later time.
Then, there was “Mxzoplk” (sic) of both the Justice League and Superfriends. This time; he was an ancient alien villain. I have fantasized about him for quite a long time till about 1986. Yes, that was a very long time; and yes, I’ve had other imaginary friends to fantasized about along with Mxzoplk (sic).
Then, in 1986; there was a cartoon show called the “Silver Hawks” and I know this sounds crazy, but I fantasized about one of the Silver Hawks characters. He was an alien, of course. Now, that fantasy was over and I’ve moved on to yet another fantasy character.
In about 1994; I was head over heels in love with “Data” of Star Trek: The Next Generation. I have been with this character for a long time and that was about when I began to realize my affinity for artificial life forms along with the different alien life forms. I have sometimes wondered why I was so different from a lot of people. Am I the only person with such weird fantasies?
And at last; there I come back to “Kitt” of Knight Rider. He is yet another fantasy love interest that I have written so many books about these characters to this day. Most of it are science-fiction and fantasy.
Right now, I’m putting poor Kitt in the background as I fantasized about another fantasy character, which is yet another alien life form that is microscopic in size. Of course, I have thought of B-4 of Star Trek: Nemesis and Gollum of The Lords of the Rings.
So I wonder sometimes if I’m drawn to such characters. I believe that I have such an affinity to such life forms. There were times, that I have felt that I really don’t belong here on this Earth. That was just my strange concept that I’ve lived with.
And that’s not all; I have fantasized about the two alien characters from Aliens In The Attic. One of which is Sparks, a male and Razor, a female. Oddly; here I was thinking about the females and I have thought that I was done with them. Well, I know that they are just fantasies and they are not real. I just can’t help but day-dream about them.
And then, back into the Star Trek world and I remembered fantasizing about a number of characters from different series like Spock, Data, Odo, and a few others along the way until a female has come to my attention. At first, I didn’t even bother think and let alone fantasize about her. It was Seven of Nine.
I have often chosen these characters mainly for their intelligence, their strengths, and how they have dealt with the challenges of being an outcast and how they learn to fit in within the societies that they live in.
So now you know just about all of the characters that I have fantasized and day-dreamed about whenever I needed to get away from the stress of ridicule, pain, heart-aches, I did not live a very easy life for I was a loner and I was picked on because of my hearing aids and glasses that I’ve worn when I was a kid and being taken advantaged of and being violated by someone who has destroyed my innocence and sense of trust. So this is how I have coped with all those challenges and having to live a difficult life. Not many people know this.
Now, you know I keep my love fantasies in secret. I’ve kept most of them in secret because I feared being ridiculed and shunned and be viewed as an outcast so unfit for society at large. So that is why I hide within my fantasy world in order to cope with the harsh reality of this planet Earth, and that I have been hurt so many times over the years.
Now I am able to find a place where I can share with only those whom I know and trust. I can only share with whom I love. There are just only a few select people whom I would like to share this with, and I’m not quite ready to do so now.
I am a bit afraid of the reaction that I get from those who has read this. I’ll have no way of knowing till I allow someone to read this. I really don’t want anyone to treat me like I am unfit or the one who is very sick in my head. Well, maybe I am for I have dealt with depression from time to time.
I have used my fantasies to escape from the harsh realities. Sometimes; I have used the fantasies as the defense mechanism.
So this is the only place where I can just hide myself, especially my love fantasies. I have many fantasies some were young and some were old, male and female, and currently; I’m having one of those love fantasies as I write. Yes, it is one of those fantasy human beings. But then, I would just revert to my old fantasies, and continue to hide from the world. Maybe that is why I am afraid of being hurt again.
My husband, Ken, is the only person that I can trust knows this, and he understood where I have come from and that I was hurt and had to hide from those pains. I love him for that. He stood by and listened as I have talked to him about them. He knows that it was the one of the ways that I had to cope with the harshness of life on Earth. I am glad that I have Ken who would simply take his time to listen.
Well, that is about it for now so take care and many blessings. Cyas.
Jacklyn Mitchell Reinhardt Perry… She is also known as Aunt Jackie to some of us. I have nick-named her “Big Jack”, and I still do not know why I’ve nick-named her as such for she is a small woman. This is the name that we hardly hear in our family nowadays for she has been taken from our lives in January 5, 1985. It has been very difficult for many of us to talk or write about her. So there is one thing that is very prominent about her life, and they are owls. She loves owls. She collects anything in the form of owls. Some of them are large and some of them are small. Some of them are beautiful and some of them are not so beautiful. She breathes anything of owls. Not one conversation goes by without mentioning a word “owl” in her vocabulary. And, yes, she even has a pet owl just before she has passed on.
She is born in February 18, 1948. She was only 36 years old when she was killed in the hit-and-run vehicular accident on the busy highway in Deland. That highway was as known as North Woodland Boulevard during the late night while she was walking across the highway from the motel near the Kentucky Fried Chicken fast food restaurant.
The last place that she had worked was International House of Pancakes (IHOP). My grandmother, Penny, has not been able to bring herself to go to IHOP for 8 long years because that was the very last place that she has seen her daughter, Jackie, alive and well. She is also the youngest of five children.
She has such a wonderful personality and she is a sweet and gullible woman. She is the kind of woman who can just sit with you and just listens. She is the kind of woman who has the care-free personality. She doesn’t hold grudges or be angry long.
She has a difficult childhood as she grew up along with her older sisters and a brother. The family has gone through many trials throughout their childhood. So Jackie, I believe, has done her best to grow and learn. There is not much of her childhood that I can gather. So this is all I know.
She has married Mike Reinhardt and had a child together named Melissa. Melissa was born in February 24, 1968. Their marriage did not last long and they divorced in 1972(?).
Then, she has married another man named, Jim. I have forgotten what his last name was. That marriage unfortunately did not last long either. It was about only three short weeks. I think that happened in 1974(?).
Then, her fourth marriage was to David Perry. He is the temperamental man to contend with. He gets belligerent when he drinks, but he is the nice guy when he was sober. I believe that their marriage didn’t last till 1978 or so. I have no idea how bad these marriages were till I began to remember things.
So Jackie has remained divorced ever since.
Jackie has developed the drinking problem when she was pretty young, probably in her early 20’s since I knew very little of her alcoholism till she came to live with us in Tampa, Florida in 1973. I didn’t realize that her alcoholism has become paramount in her life until I was old enough to understand the affect that alcohol has on people. At one time or another, she would disappear to the bars somewhere in town to get a drink or two. Like I said, “She was a gullible person”. She would be around a lot of folks who would drink with her. I can remember that she has been in a lot of bad relationships with men in general. Things have gone from bad to worse as the time progresses.
She has hit rock-bottom one day when she has realized that she was in such a bad shape alone in an apartment. She used to go from one drinking binge after another. She had picked up the phone and called her mother to ask for help. She has realized how much that alcoholism has caused so much trouble. She was alone and scared.
Then, she was taken to the Stewart Treatment Center for Drug and Alcohol, which is now known as Stewart-Markmann-Act Behavioral. So that was when she began to turn her life around. That was in January of 1984. Jackie has diligently gone through the treatment processes and therapies in order to learn of her dependence on alcohol. She was in such a vulnerable shape and she is learning how to cope with being a recovering alcoholic. She has done very well throughout the treatment and she was slowly recovering from the harmful effects of alcoholism. When she has completed her intensive treatment program; she was moved to the halfway house and she was given a waitressing job at IHOP. Even since, Jackie has worked so hard at IHOP in Deland, Florida. She has been diligent in saving her money for an apartment and being able to live as normally as possible as a recovering alcoholic. It is a life-long process. She was much happier and she has her dental work done which was caused by the effects of alcohol. She is smiling more and she was beginning to have new friends. Her daughter, Melissa, was so happy to have her mom back as well.
Jackie has found an injured baby owl one day and she decided to take it home with her so that she can take care of and raise it as her own. She has researched and learned enough about the care of the baby owl and learning how the owls live.
Then, her life was cut short one night in January of 1985 when a car was speeding along the Woodland Boulevard. The car hit her and dragged her about 80 feet along the highway till the driver realized that she had hit someone.
Perhaps; there is something beautiful out of this tragedy. Aunt Jackie has accepted Messiah Yeshua as her King. So there is “Beauty For Ashes”.
Yes, she was known as an owl lady. She loves owls and she talks about the owls. Whenever I’ve looked at the pictures of the owls, or watch any videos of owls; I would think of Aunt Jackie. She has been and will always be known as an Owl Lady.
