A Fun Time Was Had By All!

One of my favorite things about being a David fan is all the amazing friendships I’ve made over the years.  This story plays out over and over, across the country and around the world – how the magic of David and his music turned strangers into life-long friends!

2012 brought us many happy memories, including numerous fan/friends get -togethers featuring a variety of David inspired themes.  Put on your dancing shoes, because we’re taking a walk down Memory Lane!

Closing this ArchuBuddies post with a vlog from David titled “Friends” – he expresses how he’s thankful for friends and how he wants to be a good friend to others – pretty much corners the friendship market lol – we’ll always be grateful that David connected us to each other in friendship, and looking forward to 2014 when we can all gather together on tour!

Have a Super Duper Saturday!

    Good morning and HAPPY RAINBOW Saturday!

    FABULOUS post Kalei! LOVE all the fan meetups! What FUN! Thanks to all for the GREAT pics and recaps! Cindy you are the COLLAGE MASTER! Thanks!

    Off to vote! ENJOY YOUR DAY and your David time! :)

  2. LCT DA#2014 says:

    so you guys call this “scalling” down? LOL! Have to admit they’re nice than reading Saturday morning paper! :)

    Jackryan, If you are lurking I live in Germany and any music put out on youtube that is/was Jive is not accessible to us over here! I don’t think my computer/email can take such a huge download! So I was trying to learn how to download it on my IPAD. It has 64GB of storage – I just don’t know how to do it! I also wanted to do the same with NA videos on Dailymotion! I treat myself to watching one very nite before bed time! :) NA has been my salvation since David’s leaving us!

  3. Good morning Va Beach & Lct#,
    Kalei thank you for a great RAINBOW post.
    The fan gatherings look like so much fun, maybe one day i will be able to join you in one.
    The collages are great Cindy. We are so lucky to have all you talented fans with us.
    I’m off for the next 3 days, so i will be able to vote as much as i can.
    All the polls need our votes. I have to wait until 9:00am PST to vote for RAINBOW on MYX because i only have one acct and i already used it up.

    How do i vote on Both? RAINBOW MV & EH MV? Help!!!

  4. LCT DA#2014 says:

    Hi Linda, You can try opening up another account for voting or if you have another computer sitting around? :)

  5. Hi! Lct, i don’t have another computer around so i guess i will have to vote one day for RAINBOW and next day for EH. Hate to do that but i don’t want to neglect either.
    I really need another laptop.

    Sarahhazel, if your lurking, just put in my 1st 100 votes. Going to vote on other polls now, BB

  6. David lost his lead on Entertainment poll. The Phils are really power voting.
    Need more voters to keep him up there.

  7. VaBeachArchie says:

    Hello LCT and Linda! Checking in before work…..long day today!

    Will work on voting again tonight….get home late!

    Enjoy your David time guys! :)

  8. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Sweet Rebecca who is seen here eating the piece of cake with David’s face on it at the Utah fan dinner, left for the MTC Wednesday. She will be serving in the Eugene, Oregon mission. Congrats to her! She said she’ll be returning in July of 2014 (18 months for sisters) and she said she’s worried she’ll miss a David tour. She is hoping for a tour after she returns!! http://twitpic.com/ajqjjm

  9. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Oops, I spelled her name wrong. It’s Rebekah

  10. kimk says:

    hey guys.
    on my phone but JackRyan just tweeted
    David is now losing on a poll now?
    can’t vote from my phone.

  11. jeani/ut says:

    Rebekah’s pcture is so cute. She is an amazing young lady.
    I remember we were all astonished she would eat that piece rather than take it home and freeze it.

  12. jackryan4da says:

    LCT — re 10:34am post – email me at JR4DA2012@gmail.com

    :)

  13. meganloves2lol says:

    rebekah is beautiful! got to love anyone who serves the lord like that. i know a couple in my church who serve as missionaries in another country. but they live there, i mean they don’t stay for a couple years, i guess they’ve been there for like 5 years. got to love christians who are willing to leave all great things we have here :)

  14. Hi! everyone, i have been voting on Entertainment poll. The Phils power vote when we are asleep, so now we are ahead but not for much. We need to get David a lot of votes before tonight. There are more archies voting right now, but we need more to power vote, before we go to bed tonight. If you want.

  15. Janel aka Nellie says:

    I know Jeani, we were all wondering why she wouldn’t freeze it! I like how she was carefully eating around the edges of his picture until she couldn’t avoid it anymore. The cake was way too good, for more reasons than one!

  16. glitter*girl says:

    hopefully the new season of idol will bring us someone new and exciting to obsess about this year!

  17. angelbymyside says:

    Greetings and Happy Saturday :D

    Hope everyone is well. Super post Kalei. Thank you!

    I have been swamped at work and feel out of the loop on anything concerning David. I didn’t know until I just read Kari’s “clarification” tweet that there was even anything to clarify lol! I was thrilled to see the Matt Clayton photo (love it!!) and David’s New Year’s greeting. I must say David’s team has thought of everything. I am sure they have lots of goodies in store for us in 2013…maybe even a new song (crossing fingers!) :D

  18. angelbymyside says:

    glitter*girl ~ I can only obsess about one person at a time hahaha :lol:

  19. LCT DA#2014 says:

    Ok, Jackryan, I will! I was busy voting and just checked in! come on guys we’ve got to step it up! I’ll send another tweet for more voters.

  20. angelbymyside says:

    . ‏@WWEArchie
    @kariontour is there ever going to be a nandito ako dvd?

    ‏@kariontour
    @WWEArchie not right now.

    :(

  21. Janel aka Nellie says:

    ABMS….oh sad!

  22. Lucy says:

    Well she didn’t say never…. I’m not giving up on that yet:) Off to work, talk to you guys later.

  23. kimk says:

    well at least we know. :(

    thank goodness folks recorded it!!

  24. glitter*girl says:

    angel~ good afternoon :) i would like to respond to your comment but unfortunately i cannot since i’m very busy “focusing on my own commitments” such as eating the rest of my holiday cupcakes and drinking vanilla biscooti coffee! LOL!

  25. angelbymyside says:

    I’m glad I downloaded those NA episodes last year!

  26. kimk says:

    ha glitter girl.. you are bad.

  27. kimk says:

    ha.. I like that she ate David’s head right up.. go for it!
    live well and full.. never know!
    good luck to her and my guess it will take time to get a tour together.
    maybe record new music, NA2.0, grow his hair out.. new Bench stuff..
    then whapp!!
    we get to hear and see that latino hottie once again LIVE!

  28. glitter*girl says:

    kim~ :)

  29. kimk says:

    think this is the poll David was losing on?
    but he is back to #1.. but it is CLOSE!!

    http://www.theentertainmentlifestyle.com/2012/12/vote-now-your-newsmaker-at.html

  30. angelbymyside says:

    glitter*girl ~ ROFL!! :lol: ….save me one of those cupcakes ;)

  31. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Looks like the mission site is getting a face lift. No conversions showing. Maybe some bugs in the site being ironed out. Certain pics/story we saw recently are no longer there. MISSION LINK WARNING http://chilerancaguamission.org/index.html

  32. kimk says:

    David’s Rainbow MV premiered a little while ago so we can now vote!! :D

    Let’s get it on the charts!!!

    Login
    Rainbow David Archuleta
    on the right!
    thanks guys!!! :D

    http://www.myxph.com/default.aspx

  33. glitter*girl says:

    angel~ they are the ones i made from the recipe linda shared here! 1 cakemix + 1 can pop. i used strawberry cake mix and grape pop and they turned out so sweet and moist and flavorful that i was shocked! i’ve been trying my whole life to find out how to make moist cupcakes and who knew it could be this simple :)

  34. angelbymyside says:

    glitter*girl ~ i LOVE cupcakes :)

  35. kimk says:

    Janel so looking forward to The David Archuleta coming back to us so we can get back to business… spazzing and having fun all we wish! WORLD TOUR 2014 my hopes!!!
    not that I mind Elder Archuleta but it is really tough trying to act like he doesn’t exist!
    thanks for the link!

  36. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Today’s video pick of the day Barriers, Columbus, OH, March 2009
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=unyfXlPWayA

  37. glitter*girl says:

    kim~ yeah i agree. this whole concept kari spoke of in her long tweet~ 2 davids, one we can talk about and one we can’t is very strange/sad to say the least. a few months ago she said we could do whatever we want and now it’s like we can’t. i don’t get it. and i’m really tired of trying to figure it out. at this rate david will be lucky to have fans left in 2014 :(

  38. glitter*girl says:

    people in MN and WI are gonna get wild tonight~ vikings vs. packers! my friends and family are already flipping out! lol

  39. Janel aka Nellie says:

    LOL Kimk, not sure why but your post reminded me of the M&M’s commercial when they see Santa and the one M&M character says “He really does exist” and faints, then Santa says “they really do exist” and faints too.
    David the missionary is who exists right now, but to me all of what he is, is who is is. David the American Idol finalist, David the son and brother to his family, David the LDS missionary, David the musician and pop star. It’s all of who he is. We don’t have to be obsessed over his mission but still acknowledge that that’s who he is right now and we are proud of him for it, we respect his space. I believe seeing and sharing his pics is not disrespecting his space. Following him around with cameras, flying to Chile to see him, calling the MTC or the mission or sending stuff directly to the mission or oversending him stuff (I for instance usually send him a card once every 6 weeks or 2 months. That’s not bad at all I think). I know people have their own opinions about what respects David and what doesn’t and I respect everyone’s views. I just think all of us need to have that as a New Year’s resolution, respect everyone’s views even if we disagree. It shouldn’t be a topic we argue over. Celebrate all the pictures, performances, music David has given us in the past and even during his mission. That’s something we all can agree on!

  40. kimk says:

    glitter girl you know what.. just do whatever you feel you must? lol I do.
    for me not into the religious side of David so it doesn’t bother me all that much not knowing things about him or what he does. do hope he is safe though! I just
    want the old David or lol new improved David back whenever that is.. and plan on waiting how ever long that takes. so
    just going to have fun and enjoy if things are posted and spazz and vote and plan as best I can. like always!
    as for Kari.. she has a job to do.
    there are reasons for things we do not know my guess?
    anyway just plan on being the fangirl I always am and
    probably not always the best fan in some folks eyes. that is ok too
    at least for me I try to do the best I can.

  41. glitter*girl says:

    well said kim! :)

  42. Janel aka Nellie says:

    oops, wrong wording. Every part of David is who he is. Not who is is. Wow, finger slip. LOL

  43. glitter-girl, glad you liked the easy cake mix & soda recipe. I can’t believe how easy it is.

  44. kimk says:

    Janel true.. speaking of sending David a postcard.. lol is it ok to send him a Valentine one? not too sure but seems like a funny or cute thing to do?
    don’t mean love ones but tongue in cheek waiting for our mish to come back ones?
    ha sorry I am babbling again!!
    was thinking around April 1 if not as it will be less then one year and can’t wait to say..
    WOO HOO CAN’T WAIT TO SEE YOU SING LIVE AGAIN SOON!!!!

  45. glitter*girl says:

    janel~ well said too. i think we were all at that point. agreeing to disagree and all that. so i just wonder why kari felt the need to make that statement cuz it just started up the whole discussion again and makes fans feel kinda bad like maybe we are doing something wrong? but we don’t even know what it is. so i find it confusing. was she trying to say david is receiving too much mail and he doesn’t have time to read it? if that’s the case just say it. her statement was long but in the end don’t really even know what she was trying to tell us.

  46. Going back to voting, been voting all morning, i need to vote on musiqtone again & Chart hit. I just focus on 4. Entertainment poll, musiqtone, chart central. MYX. I can’t handle anymore polls. BB

  47. kimk says:

    off to Lowes again!!
    ha I swear I live there sometimes.. was voting a ton and hope David gets on the charts
    at MYX and wins that NA award!!!!
    BBL!!

  48. glitter*girl says:

    linda~ yeah it is so simple it’s hard to believe! thanks again!!! :)

  49. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Kimk, I would just have it say “Happy Valentine’s Day” Avoid the “Be Mine” ones and the like. LOL

  50. angelbymyside says:

    People sent David things directly to the mission and not to Kari???????? WHY???

  51. angelbymyside says:

    Has Kari said when she will send the next package off to David??

  52. Janel aka Nellie says:

    glitter girl I don’t think there was anything wrong in what Kari said. I guess everyone reads things differently. I think maybe if we look at things in terms of Kari, David is not the only person she manages and she is a busy girl. She can’t just focus on him and getting our letters and packages to him. So when we all have other things to focus on she wasn’t just talking about us. And to scale back on sending things, she may have also been talking about her time, not just David’s. I love Kari and all that she has done for us. She said she will be here for us and for David as long as we need her. I hope that is a very long term commitment during his mission and beyond. She was well placed as a good match for David as his manager and his friend.

  53. glitter*girl says:

    angel~ my theory on that is i think alot of fans don’t even know who kari is or follow her on twitter. david allegedly has millions of fans and only 4000 of them follow kari. how strange is that?! so maybe they don’t even know about the p.o. box in FL

  54. glitter*girl says:

    janel~ well if that’s what she meant she should have stated it just like that, like u just did. cuz apparently lots of fans were confused. maybe she wrote it in a hurry or something.

  55. Janel aka Nellie says:

    abms, I’m not saying that happened, but I said that in the event that it has. I wonder if it has. If people are persistant enough to find info about David’s mission, finding the mission address is easy. I know it, but would never send anything to it. That’s why Kari and David set up that address in Florida where she lives, so she can manage it all. Someone else made a point the other day. Look at how many fans follow David, then how in comparison, how few follow Kari. I’m willing to bet there are a lot of fans out there that don’t even know about the address or the amount of mail Kari got for him would be 100 times more.

  56. Janel aka Nellie says:

    glitter, great minds think alike. LOL.

  57. glitter*girl says:

    janel~ true :) lol

  70. meagain says:

    why miss glitter you keep bringing this issue up again and again and her I am adding to things but come on….it was clear to me she was just saying it was a new year and told people nothing was changing.We do not know and will never know i am sure what they are dealing with and have to deal with and I guess everyone reads things differently. I feel sorry for her and David even if it might be her job. I hope he keeps her around even when he returns i think she has been so good to us and him and i hope he know how much she does for him. i am just happy and surprised with all the stuff we are getting from him. never expected these jems. you bring up the number of people she has on twitter then david its sad but i feel maybe those are the real devoted fans the ones that votes like we do and buy what he has and sends the letters to him. i have to admit i have 3 maybe even 5 at onetime and all of them follow davidarchie but one follows her. what about you? i think he was the one that posted the address right and talked about it in a video and this was his time he needed and he hopes we all could understand that. Don’t get me wrong i have looked at some of his missionary photos and video and was happy to read the girls letter about an event she went to until i found out she flew from a different place and sent a lot of letter asking to go after she got turned down for something that was for the youth and believe she could be a golden archie that to me is pushing the “P” word i think. since he has not asked kari to post anything and she really does not talk about much about it i do question that and yes i will use the “R” word respect and maybe they felt like they just needed to refresh things so we would not forget. We all have commitments well I know i do and i think it was nice of him to remind us like he has always does and wants us to not always devote all our time to him. thats all i have to say just felt like i needed to say it even if no one cares or reads it.

  71. glitter girl don’t believe everything you read. If you look for negativity you will find. Just rely on your judgement.

  72. meagain says:

    do you really think if he did not want the picture posted then he would have not posed for it and then sent it to kari. come on people looks like some people have nothing better to do

  73. kimk says:

    way I see it we got probs new music and Matt Clayton pics coming our way and hey never know maybe a new MV!?
    so not sweating anything.

    glitter girl lol you need a new hunk to spazz over.. me too. hope Idol is decent this year and yes a lot of fabulous talent not to mention a ton of gorgeous guys!
    only way we’ll get our mind off no D.

  74. What do you click to vote again on polldaddy. It is faster then the other one?

  77. glitter*girl says:

    #Top10GreatestVoices David Archuleta. EVER!

  82. kimk says:

    David can dance.
    think if he had guidance, lessons he would be very good at it.
    acting as well.

    really if I think about it he can do it all.
    just up to him what he wants to do!!!

  83. sarahhazel says:

    Can we just enjoy David goodies a day at a time and focus on our PROMOTING and VOTING duties instead of talking about the “P” and the “R” subject again & again?
    IMO, the merrier, the better! :D
    OK, gotta go, BBML, take care!!!

  84. glitter*girl says:

    meagain~ i’m still holding out hope that when he returns he will be fearless and go on DWTS! how awesome would that be to be able to watch him on our TVs like that and be in our living rooms clapping and squealing??! :) lol!

    glitter girl – i am so for that but do you think he would do something we would all have to vote for him on to win again?
    sarahhazel – ok that was my point to my post and then got away with things back to doing my voting duties on all the polls. i wonder if he knows all that we vote on and he wins? maybe that is something i will tell him in my next letter to him

    David archuleta is a cutie..

  87. Anita says:

    To me, what Kari said regarding David while on his mission and having privacy is what she has stated from the very beginning. That’s how I interpret it anyway. I will continue to respect David’s wishes, and am so very grateful to have Kari! She’s been so amazing to us!! David has been incredible, thinking of everything possible to show us he cares, and will not forget about us. He even made a New Year’s greeting for us before he left! I don’t know that there’s anyone who has done so much for their fans as David has. He just blows me away!!!

    Glitter*girl-I’m am excited and a bit nervous about the Packer/Viking game tonight. I’m hoping the Packer’s will win it!!!

  88. violet4ever says:

    Re the fan mail BOX address – it’s easy for people to find it. Kari’s note about fan mail was posted to the OS Jan 3 and after that Disney Dreaming and BSCKids both posted it. I was surprised it says gifts since David has limited space and limited in the types of things he can possess or wear.

  89. kimk says:

    Julianne Hough is mormon.. so is Derek!

    she would be a great partner for David if ever he does DWTS!!

    Hello Everyone!
    Hope everyone in the Cold & Flue Wing of the Archuhospital, are recovering well. Dont worry, the Vikings/Packers game is being shown in each room, only one requirement. Everyone must root for the MN Vikings :grin: This is non-negotiable :grin:
    GO VIKINGS!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Sorry Anita :lol:

  91. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    ***Flu, lol, not flue :roll:

  92. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Hey kimk! Dont know that David would take his shirt off as much as Derek does on DWTS, lol I think David has some great dance moves, he just needs to let go, if he so chooses. That voice of his sure has some moves, thats for sure!

  93. cq#DA2014 says:

    Kimk, love Juilianne and Derek, so much talent! I know that both came from a Mormon background, but I remember reading an article where Juilianne said about being Ryan Seacrest’s girlfriend meant she just drinks better wine. So I’m thinking that at least she might not be a practicing Mormon.

  94. glitter*girl says:

    maybe when david comes back he’ll decide to be a tattooed swaggypunk like justin! anything could happen LOL! :)

  95. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Well, gotta go, will try to check in later, Ciao :grin:

    Hey cq, Please, NOOOOOOO, lol. TTYL!

  96. kimk says:

    glittergirl lol. what is that saying.. when pigs fly?
    http://youtu.be/o-r4Z1K_LDc

    Beth umm all it would take is for once.. fandamonium!!

    cq could be I don’t know. you are or you aren’t a religion no?
    ha don’t answer that.

  97. glitter*girl says:

    kim ~ omg LOL! i’ve got that song “anything could happen” by ellie goulding stuck in my head right now! lol :)

  98. cq#DA2014 says:

    Oh gosh, what was wrong with my statement? I didn’t bash anybody or any religion.

  99. glitter*girl says:

    so derek is a mormon? if he can take off his shirt why can’t david?! must not be a church rule then! :)

  100. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Hey cq! Sorry, if your talking about my comment telling you Noooo, I was thinking you were the one that said David might get a tatoo like the Beav, lol. Back to lurking :grin:

  101. kimk says:

    cq don’t think you did. do I think David would go shirtless.. ever. lol no.
    do DWTS? he did consider it I think if he had a good tutor/teacher as I recall in an interview.

  102. kimk says:

    lol tattoos on David?
    nah.

    got none myself.. wrinkles and tatts not too appealing.

  103. cq#DA2014 says:

    Kimk, not that anyone cares, but I don’t belong to an organize church, I was brought up Catholic and I’m proud of my roots, but I have stepped away from the church and am a very happy person praying and talking to God without any middlemen.

  104. glitter*girl says:

    kim~ agree! the only tattooed guy i find sexy is adam levine! who will be hosting SNL tonight! :) but can david please be a swaggy punk just for 1 day? reminds me of when constantine called him a punk. i’m sorry but i find that funny still to this day. if david is a punk what does constantine call real punks??! LOL!

  105. cq#DA2014 says:

    Beth, lol, I hate tattos, wouldn’t wish on my worse enemy, I know they are very mainstream, but I just don’t see the beauty.

  106. kimk says:

    glittergirl I like Adam. :)

  107. glitter*girl says:

    hope adam does some skits tonight too cuz i saw him in something awhile ago and he is a good actor!

  108. Anita says:

    Beth-The Vikings? BAHHHHH! LOL!!! Hey, I’m happy you’re going to be watching, even if you’re not rooting for my Packers! The Pack has their work cut out for them against Adrian Petersen. OMG!!!

  109. kimk says:

    glittergirl not sure Adam is on tonight? Jan 26 maybe?

  110. kimk says:

    just checked. Adam Levine is hosting SNL Jan 26.

  111. Hey! guys, we just need one more power voting to keep David afloat for the night. Lee Min Ho, is not too far behind. His voters will be waking up when we get ready for bed and they will power vote to pass us. If you want to vote. Just an update.
    Entertainment lifestyle poll.

  112. glitter*girl says:

    thanks kim!

  113. sarahhazel says:

    Back in the hotel….
    Linda–voting for 300 now on Musiqtone & after that EL, etc.
    Whew! too many polls….not enough fingers…haha!

  114. Sarah, just finished my 300 going back to EL.

  115. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Hi, Just got here. Been reading all Kalei’s super post. Gee all the fan gatherings. Looking forward to one closer to N.j. Just finished reading all the comments and voted in between. Now I’m going over to Musiqtone. For some reason I had a hard time voting there yesterday. The board didn’t show up all the time. I had to keep refreshing all the time. Didn’t like that. I don’t think I was getting in my full 100 votes. Oh well, I’m going there now. BBL

  116. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–me too!

  117. mandaberry says:

    “it just kinda sucks cuz we have no way of knowing what david really thinks and feels thanks to this mormon mandated communication blackout”

    GG, there really and truly is no Mormon mandated blackout. Missionaries communicate with friends and family all the time. You’ve seen the blogs, right?

    We know what David really thinks because he told us, plain as day. And because Kari tells us clearly. There is no mystery there.

    Kim – I like your perspective on the diversity of David fans and different opinions.

  118. Hi SGJ, it does that to me too. You just have to wait until it stops on the list.
    Its kinda of slow sometimes. I have refresh sometimes too. It takes me 20 mins for 100 votes. Going back to ET. trying to get David ahead before we go to bed, The Phils vote while we are asleep & they are go-getters just like us, they don’t let down. OH! well it’s a challenge but its fun. Win, or lose.

  119. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Linda- Thanks. Good to know I’m not the only one.The problem is that I lose count.

  120. nora says:

    Linda been voting on ent all day not voting on NA just staying with David. Maybe it would be better if more people here voted, also put in my 200 votes for musiq and others come on guys help us out, we want to keep David’s name out there especially this poll when you consider who he is up against. Back to Voting on ent.

  121. muldur says:

    The privacy issue has been raised by Kari again because even though it has been brought up before, a lot of fans still don’t understand that posting pictures of Elder Archuleta or links to information about him is outside of what he asked of us. The same fans continue to state that they think there is nothing wrong with that. It’s because you want to believe that, not because it’s what Elder Archuleta wants.

    We as fans can enjoy his music and his voice and the many gifts he has left for us, and show support for him when opportunities present themselves, without knowing what he looks like on his mission, what he does, what he says to people. You haven’t abandoned him if you don’t know anything about him while he is on his mission. You are just letting that part be his. Which is what he asked us for. It’s ok to do that.
    It bothers me that Kari continues to be picked at for how she says things, when she says them. If you would all just read what she says, it’s very clear. It’s only confusing if you refuse to understand what is being said. She has done a terrific job of taking care of the fans. I am sad to see all the sarcasm that has been used in referencing her words.

  122. SGJ, i don’t count anymore. I go by the time. 20 mins and i know i almost have the 100 votes. Then it goes to ALT ROCK. Then i know i’ve got the 100 votes in.

  123. cq#DA2014 says:

    Muldur, with all do respect, I really don’t think you can speak for David like any other fan also can’t speak for him. Your statement makes it sound like all the other fans that decide to view, read etc, stuff from Chile are disrespectful, imo, it doesn’t make them any more of a disrespect fan than you. Now if fans were taking pictures of David while he was wondering the streets of Chile and posted them on the web, yes, that would be totally disrespectful.

  124. nora says:

    All of this discussion gets you no where. just let it go. I’m going to vote and the clean toilets JMO

  125. Amanda Jane says:

    ^ What Nora said, lol.

    Hope everyone’s doing good this evening. Are you feeling better Beth? Seems like the crud going around this year is worse and longer lasting than normal.

  126. ray says:

    mulder, we are not the ones posting them,just looking at them,he would not know that if some one doesn,t tell him,so it should not bother him,now if some one writs and tells him about what is going on thats them being desrespectfull

  127. kimk says:

    nora ha.. cracks me up. toilets and David.

    will always be disagreements.. folks getting upset.
    folks flipping out posting the pic of David and Kina eating lunch, him running in the park, sleeping on the plane,
    his arm around JM her not dressed properly,
    talking about him being like Jesus 2.0 as I recall got Snarkies shut down.
    funny now he is.
    guess where David is concerned.. fans of all types these things will happen.

  128. cq#DA2014 says:

    Yes, most of the time any discussions that everyone is not on the same page, really get no where, but should those topics be stopped? imo, I don’t think so. How about talking about David’s future wife and children, does that get us any where? should that discussion be stopped also? We can respectfully agree to disagree, lol.

  129. Candy says:

    OMG AGAIN??? REALLY??????

  130. Candy says:

    I wish I had the same magical powers as some fans must possess as they profess to be able to know what David is thinking! And then they proceed to embark their divine wisdom on those of us without those powers and expect us to instantly be transposed into group think! UGH!

  131. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Candy- :wink: :roll: :cry:

  132. kimk says:

    cq stopped? not by me.. good, bad or mundane keeps his name out there.

    have been a lot of fun convos too thru the years.
    first one that really cracked me up was..

    church slacks! :)

  133. Candy says:

    The dead horse rides again! Poor thing! First time I sat down to post all day and am greeted with the same ole, same ole. Time to rally the boys and get that danged horse some cement shoes!

  134. kimk says:

    Candy lol got me.. I can’t even follow him when he is speaking!
    why he is so interesting.. his mind is so unique!

  135. Candy says:

    kimk-the first one I remember literally laughing out loud was the video for the bts for the first cd, “Lean back in the chair David…way back” Ha, that poor photographer had no idea how those words would spark a small riot among fans!! Oh the good ole fun times! Now seems like all we have are the same P&R issues!

  136. kimk says:

    Candy omgosh lol I do remember that now!
    haven’t seen that vid in ages.
    he really is a natural behind the camera.. even if he doesn’t think so!!
    case in point that last Matt Clayton pic was the bomb.
    hope there is a BTS of that photoshoot!!

  137. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    kimk- :lol: :lol: :lol:

  138. Candy says:

    kimk- I havent either, maybe we should dig it up for old times sake. We could use a diversion!
    MC is a God!

  139. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Candy and Kim I love you both!!! :) Even not on his mission people would read into what he’s saying on his tweets, his blogs, his interviews. Let’s pick apart the complex brain in David’s head.
    Nora, my toilet is sparkling do to avoidance of confrontation. Being a good girl.

  140. mango says:

    Ok, refresh my memory about the “Lean back in the chair”. I can’t remember that at all, but it does sound interesting. Maybe it was before my time. I would love to know about it, though.

  141. Candy says:

    Ha, we must have the sparkliest toilets on the planet. Better then being in one of those glass houses that seem to be so popular.

  142. Candy says:

    Janel ;)

    Mango Im going to see if I can find that video, it was a treasure!

  143. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Candy…..ROTFLOL!!!!

  144. mango says:

    Great, Candy. I’ll be watching for it.

  145. Candy, i want to see that vid too. Don’t remember that one, maybe it will refresh my memory. Back to voting.

  146. Candy says:

    I found it but its been removed by user, dang!

  147. mango says:

    Does anyone want to explain what it was about?

  148. Miss Vicki #DA2014 says:

    Hey guys….checking in on a Saturday night…..Love the article about Mark Nilan and the importance of a music education….I can only think that if David comes home and pursues a degree in music it will only benefit us tenfold….He is superhuman ya know….He can handle that plus recordings and tours to boot….No sweat for David.Miss Vicki

  149. Miss Vicki #DA2014 says:

    BTW….Is there a site where we can go watch all the Nandito Ako videos?????? Miss Vicki

  150. Candy says:

    Mango-not sure if describing the scene would come across the same as seeing it. Im hoping someone has it in their vault! I did before I lost four years worth of gems when my computer crashed.

  151. breanne says:

    Quickest way to Vote on the Entertainment Poll:
    VOTE HERE FOR @DAVIDARCHIE >> http://polldaddy.com/poll/6798589

  152. mango says:

    Candy, I’ll just wait and hope someone else has it. Thanks, anyway.

  153. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Hello Everyone! Just woke up from a 2 hour nap, I havent slept 2 hours in a row for 4 days, lol, it was fantastic. Unfortunately, I woke up with the MN Vikings losing 17-3 to the, oh, I cant say it……..the other team, lol. They need a big 2nd half. The Fine Feathered Fellows are flying all over the house, their so nervous about the game, their going a little loopy :grin: Thankgoodness I had the foresight to turn off the ceiling fans :lol:

    I want people to be able to say anything they want, but I do wish we could drop this whole issue. Messages, clear as day, David’s on his mission, respect it as we have been, send cards & letters, as we have been, we will get info from Kari when she has it, as we have been. Concentrate on the things that matter to us(family, friends, projects, etc…), along with David(such as voting on polls, keeping his name outthere, etc….) as we have been. Only change, Kari sends cards & letters every other month instead of every month, woopty doo, big deal. Maybe we could take it easy on David, send post cards, saying “Hey” we’re thinking of you, maybe a highlite happening in your life & wish him well. He only has so much time to read everything & given the fact that he sent a pic of him with his mail, with a REAL smile, not a have to smile, he appreciates it, but, we gotta give the man a break, he doesnt have alot of time to read long letters. People can send him letters of course, just maybe more post cards than letters :grin: just a thought. Remember, I’ve been ill & sleep deprived, so please take that into consideration, now that you’ve read my comment :lol: I will not be commenting on this subject again………….you’re welcome :grin:

  154. Miss Vicki #DA2014 says:

    Speaking of fan get togethers….Anyone interested in getting together in the Richmond, VA; Washington DC or Baltimore area???????

  155. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Sorry, the comment looks so much shorter in the comment box :roll:

  156. breanne says:

    Agree with what you just said Beth!! :)

    VOTE HERE FOR ‘NANDITO AKO’ >> http://polldaddy.com/poll/6798649

  157. Miss Vicki #DA2014 says:

    Hey Beth….I agree with you….AMEN………..Miss Vicki

  158. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Hey Candy! Too bad we still dont have avi pics, Joanie(not Sutty), Freuds Original Mom, lol, her pic was of David in that chair,lol.

  159. mango says:

    I also agree with you, Beth.

  160. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Hey Breanne & Miss Vicki, Thanks :grin:

    The game is getting more depressing, now MN is losing 24-3 :-( Whoa is me :-(

  161. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Miss Vicki- Hi. A Baltimore get together sounds okay to me. Maybe in springtime, though. I dislike traveling in Winter months. January and February are the worse. I think you can go to Daily Motions.com and get Nandito Ako. Linda will know, she watches everyday.

  162. Miss Vicki, you can go to Daily Motions link and see all the NA videos with subtitles.

    Good Job Beth :smile:

  163. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    ***woe is me(Is what I think I meant,lol, still waking up)

    Thanks Mango!

  164. angelbymyside says:

    Ahhhhh the chair pic ;)

    Beth ~ hope you feel better soon. Sorry about your team. My Eagles were dreadful this year and the coach was just fired….there’s always next year.

    Miss Joanie…wish she would drop by every now and again!

  165. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Hey supergrand, Are you feeling better? The Fine Feathered Fellows recommend Beef soup(they just cant recommend Chicken soup, you understand :grin: )

  166. Janel aka Nellie says:

    It is 4 degrees here in Pleasant Grove Utah. Icky tempurature inversion. I need Scotty to beam me over to Tucson!!!! Where’s my friend Vicki in Tucson?? Can you arrange that for me girl??? Sigh. I was pinning Arizona pics on pinterest and sighing every pin I pinned.

  167. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Beth- Glad to see you are feeling better, me too a little. I’m not a football person but I like people who are. They get all involved. My granddaughter who is 27 goes wild while watching games. I try to tell her that her addiction to a whole team of players is like how I feel about David. I don’t think she gets it. Oh well!!

  168. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Hey abms! Thanks, getting there. Sorry about the Eagles, its a bummer. Like you said, there’s always next year :grin: It can be difficult for a team to beat the same team 2 weeks in a row. We beat Green Bay last week, but this week……..well. Hopefully our teams will do much better next year :grin:

    Linda :grin:

  169. sarahhazel says:

    breanne–thanks for the polldaddy links!

  170. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    supergrand, Thanks & glad that you’re feeling better. I have all brothers, had no choice in following sports, lol. I have been giving myself a bit of a break from it though, not watching many Twins or Vikings games this year, you can get to worked up, too emotional, just needed a break. Plus, the hockey strike is still going. I’ve been to lot of great games in my life, including the 1987 World Series. Lots of fun. Hopefully, you’re friend will learn to understand :grin:

  171. jackryan4da says:

    If you guys are talking about the BTS photoshoot of the debut album, here u go!

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aXGULdgF4dw

    “Sit, all the way back…” @ mark 1:47 to 1:56

    And the fandom went beserk! LMAO of the memory

  172. sarahhazel says:

    breanne–it won’t go back to the blank boxes when I refresh….is it OK if I just hit the back arrow?…..will that count?

  173. Candy says:

    OMG JR-A million hugs for that gem!!!!!

  174. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    sarahhazel – Hope you are having a nice time in Delaware. My cousin lives in Newark, Del. Mr. SGJ and I travel through the whole state about 50 times , at least, going and coming to O.C. MD. all summer into fall. The Duffy’s Hope basketball game was at Lewes, Delaware. That was :cool:

  175. Candy says:

    Oh pooh, I cant watch it on either link. Maybe Mango can as shes in different country.

  176. angelbymyside says:

    Oh no! Can’t see the video on either link :(

  177. Can’t see the link either. Lol!

  178. angelbymyside says:

    sarahhazel ~ You’re in Delaware????

  179. cq#DA2014 says:

    Yay, can’t view it either, bummer.

  180. mango says:

    I can’t see the link either. And, Candy, I am in Utah…. although it does seem like a different country sometimes.

  181. breanne says:

    sarahhazel at 10:32, yes just use the back arrow. That’s what I’ve been doing :)

  182. Hey you guys :)

    Am I the only one who’d love to have an action figure of that MC foto up top…I think not :) Would love to see a DA figure( post mission) on the shelves of FAO Schwartz. We’d all turn into would-be photographers, posing David to our hearts content. Now if they had a miniature chair, was it a swivel chair? not sure haha

    Kalei, love everything related to NA on your post esp the get togethers and who can forget about Vangie and Volta. Keeping fingers crossed for an eventual NA DVD!!! What can I say about David’s collage corner…cunningly cute :)

  183. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Thanks JR, but I cant watch it either.

  184. jackryan4da says:

    CANDY – I have over 600 videos in my JR4DAI YT channel alone, mostly in HQ & HD quality. That’s my Pre-AI & AI channel with 21 playlists for easier browsing. It would probably reach 650 vids by he time am done uploading the Pre-AI stuff.

    Had to re-upload most of them as I lost the original channel 2 years ago. That was a bummer. So I decided to create channels by the year in order not to lose all vids when something goes awry

    Anw, hopefully I will be done with this channel and JRforDA09 by the time David gets back :) The 2010 up to the present are in good shape :)

  185. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Hey idamae :grin:

  186. Miss Vicki #DA2014 says:

    Hey supergrandjudie and others…..A Spring fan get together in Baltimore sounds fun to me…..anyone else game????? LindaFromCali….thanks for the tip on viewing Nandito Ako…..Beth, glad you are feeling better……Miss Vicki

  187. Candy says:

    sorry mango-I dont know why I thought you were in the PI, maybe your screen name makes me think of someplace tropical.

  188. Miss Vicki #DA2014 says:

    Hey sarahazel….Hope you are having a good time in Delaware…..Miss Vicki

  189. jackryan4da says:

    CQ/MANGO – can you try this link

    09-18 David Archuleta @ BTS photoshoot 1st album (29 Sept 2008)
    http://www.dailymotion.com/video/k1UWfJ9SFEeaNS3wmEt

    It should work :)

  190. Miss Vicki #DA2014 says:

    Hi Idamae…..What’s Up?????….Miss Vicki

  191. Hi! Idamae. How are you, your on early today.

  192. Candy says:

    YAY the link JR posted at 10:47 worked for me!!!!

  193. Candy says:

    OMG he looks SOOOOOOOOOO young there!

  194. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Thanks Miss Vicki!

  195. Candy says:

    Ha, actually he looks close to that in the Birthday Thank you video.

  196. angelbymyside says:

    let’s not forget the ladder hahaha

  197. angelbymyside says:

    He was so young in that video

  198. mango says:

    Thanks JR. That worked. Awww… young David. Young precious David. Love him.

  199. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Thanks JR, its been a long time since I’ve seen that video :grin:

  200. jackryan4da says:

    BETH – yeah a lot of YT channels on David have been taken down… or went private :(

    Hope they get resurrected (private ones) once he returns :)

  201. sarahhazel says:

    supergrand, Miss Vicki–thanks…..the whole family’s enjoying the area!

    breanne–thanks again!

  202. sarahhazel says:

    OMJ, memories of that photoshoot….aw, he was just a little (very handsome) kid!
    Thanks, jackrayn!

  203. Beth, I hear you’re feeling a bit better…great to hear that! I was shivering this morning when I heard you guys in MN had sub freezing temp like Utah. It’s funny when the weather person comes on and starts mentioning how the states are faring, I start calling out all the fans from Fod and my hubby just shakes his head :)

  204. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Goodnight Everyone, Take Care All!

    JR, oh, thats a shame. Yeah, hopefully
    they come back. It was fun to see that
    video though :grin: G’night!

  205. Beth, The Freud, Lloyd, Boyd & Floyd #DA2014 says:

    Thanks idamae. Me too. When I hear other
    states mentioned, I sometimes think of you
    guys :grin: G’night!

  206. JR Thank you very much. He is young and a cutie!! back to voting.

  207. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    jackryan4DA Thanks a ton. That worked for me too. Love when he says Brooklyn is a little different than Utah. Is it your birthday today? I’m gonna wish you a Happy Birthmonth then. Happy Birthmonth jackryan4DA and many, many more!!

  208. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Goodnight Beth- Take care. Sweet dreams.

  209. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Hi , Idamae. It’s a little nippy here in New Jersey too. The oilman delivered oil yesterday. Pretty soon we’ll have to take out a loan to heat the house. Need to go south.

  210. Candy says:

    bwahahaha-the ladder, the chair, the belt, oh we sure amused ourselves! And yes I miss Joanie too, she was such a ray of sunshine, I miss that!

  211. Candy says:

    Ha, wish Joanie would have left her stick, there are times when comments make me want to poke my eyes out!!

  212. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Time to tuck myself in. Goodnight everyone. It’s a new day, a new year and we should all feel good. See you tomorrow.

  213. JK, thanks for that link, the one at 10:47 worked for me. Yes, he is very young in that video. I remember seeing it for the first time back then and noticed how he saw things differently…what some would call defacing pivate property, he called…graffiti art :) Just love that!!!

  214. Candy says:

    Good night SGJ, and you’re right, tomorrows a new dawn, a new day, a new year!

  215. Candy says:

    Ida-in the Bronx it is art! Was in Harlem a few weeks back and love the art I saw there. its unique to NY!

  216. Goodnite Beth, and SGJ, sorry, we didn’t have a chance to chat :(

  217. mango says:

    Now I’m trying to figure out why the “lean back in the chair…” would cause an uproar in the fandom. Hmmm…

  218. Candy, in Paterson where I taught for almost a century and sometimes it felt that way haha they had to convince kids to switch gears and instead of painting gang signs all over the place, to finally get serious and start creating beautiful art and they did :) BTW, The movie about Joe Clark, the principal of Kennedy HS was a true story from my home town.

  219. Goodnight Sgj, Beth, Been busy voting today, haven’t spent too much time on comments. Want to try and get our guy his first Foriegn Entertainer of the year award, i guess thats what you would call it.

  220. cq#DA2014 says:

    Thank you Jackryan4da, such fun going down memory lane. That lean back on the chair pose was very cool, me liky very much….even then so young, but already start to ooze a sensuality.

  221. kimk says:

    I need the BTS photoshoot vid!!

    maybe someone saved it???

    he was so handsome too all the pics!!!

    dang isn’t there someone who has it!!!

  222. Candy says:

    Ida-I sponsor a litle girl at the Harlem Boys & Girls Club, she lives in a shelter and is hoping someday to be reunited with her mom. Anyway took her out for lunch, its amazing to see Harlem through her eyes.
    Didnt know that about Joe Clark, pretty cool.

  223. Candy says:

    Kimk-scroll up to 10;47 that link works.

  224. kimk says:

    woah!!
    didn’t see Jackryan has it!!
    lol Jackryan you are a video goddess!!!
    off I go!

  225. Candy says:

    cq- and THAT is exactly what sent the fanbase into a frenzy!

  226. I know they have RAINBOW remix on the front page when it was released today, but its a little fuzzy, have they not released it on you tube yet? Just wondering.

  227. Anita says:

    Beth-HUGS for you since your Vikings are done for the season. That’s always a bummer! I’m so happy the Packers are going on, but I didn’t find it a very exciting game for some reason. Now it’s on to San Francisco next week for Green Bay! Woo Hoo!!!

  228. Candy says:

    Hi Anita-The Eagles had a whole season of not very exciting games, I was glad to see the season come to a close to end the torture! I’ll be watching SF/GB next week.

  229. Miss Vicki #DA2014 says:

    Hi to Va Beach Archie in the morning……Miss Vicki

  230. Miss Vicki #DA2014 says:

    OMG…That photo shoot of David in Brooklyn for his first album was awesoeme…..Just can’t beliee how David has matured so so much…..Miss Vicki

  231. Janel aka Nellie says:

    Thanks JRDA for the video. Has anyone done some good screencaps of that video? I don’t think I’ve ever seen that video or screencaps, but then I really only started to be a serious fan in 2010. Doing the video of a day is revealing too. A lot of the ones I’m choosing I’ve never seen.

  232. Candy, it’s heart breaking to hear stories like that of the little girl you sponsor. One day I hope she is reunited to her mom. Thanks to you, she’s given a chance to bond with someone who cares :)

  233. Miss Vicki, he takes great direction from photographers and directors…he’s the perfect subject for pix and film…OOOOOHHHHH JUST THE THOUGHT OF IT ALL!!!!

  234. Shanny in Australia says:

    Hey fod! :-)
    Loved looking at all the smiling fan faces. Who’s that tall guy who’s in several pictures. northern cali get togethers I think.
    Also…were there no pics of the asian fan get togethers from the past year? Archuletaphils had a birthday bash for david didn’t they? I don’t know…things get too confusing for me these days, things just blend into one big whole.

  235. Candy says:

    Bewitching hour has come and gone. Good Night all, Hasta Manana!

  236. Been voting on that Musiqtone Madness but at times when I vote for David , L2′s Insomnia gets underscored and an ad for insomnia meds pops up. Shouldn’t an ad for Advil or Aleve pop up when I vote for Everybody Hurts? :)

  237. Gonna call it a night, sleep tight, all :)

  238. Idamae i’ve yet to see a bad photo shoot of David, he has such charisma, and beautiful facial expressions, i hope it ok to say beautiful for as guy.

  239. jackryan4da says:

    SHANNY @ 12:32 Yes Archuleta Phils did have a Year-End GT / DA Bday Celeb dubbed as Charity B4 Party Year-End GT

    FIRE!!

  244. kimk says:

    don’t think Rainbow MV has been released anywhere yet?
    Premiered on MYX that is all I know of.

  245. Candy says:

    As I head off to bed Ive come to the conclusion….there is nothing worse then a “reformist”

  246. Shanny in Australia says:

    Thanks JR. third link worked for me.
    Now…we have to resurrect these pics of david running in the park and out to lunch with Kina etc. Maybe we need a front page post depicting all the ‘gems that set the fanbase on fire’? lololol

  247. Shanny in Australia says:

    Thanks for all the links JR, i’ll go and check them out. :-)
    You’re awesome. What would we do without you – I hate to think it!

  248. kimk says:

    Shanny lol you are a pip. was just a pic of David jogging in Utah I think? nothing bad just that folks thought the pic should not of been posted or taken?
    Kina and David here is that one.
    he is very handsome and she is gorgeous!
    http://24.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_kt5fi7jTHd1qarsqdo1_500.jpg
    lol think it made MTV online?
    they just got out of having lunch in LA I think?
    were songwriting I think.

  249. kimk says:

    Shanny where David is concerned there is nothing bad.. he is a sweet pea!
    http://youtu.be/nT1xwIEuU1M
    lol the pic of him running has 10000 views.
    adorbs of course.
    anyway going to stop.. I am pooped!

    see you all tomorrow!
    gosh I LOVE that Gotta Get Thru This!!!
    for the life of me I have no idea why he is not mega famous!!!

  250. Shanny in Australia says:

    Haha, you guys must have had a blast of a day. Sweet, important things. Sharing kindness, love, the Christmas spirit and then having a birthday bash and hanging out, connecting with the other Archies. It looks like it must have been an enriching and fun day. :-D

  251. Shanny in Australia says:

    Haha Kim! That running vid gave me a good laugh. I like seeing him in ‘normal’ life.
    Hmmm…would love to know what kina and david came up with that day. She’s a sweetie, he’s a sweetie…….i wonder if they kept in touch at all…?

    Thanks heaps Kim! Sleep well. :-)
    I still love that Everybody Wants To Rule The World from Myrtle beach. His song choices from that night speak sooo clearly in retrospect.

  252. Shanny in Australia says:

    My comment at 1:32am was to JR in response to her links. Probably wasn’t the clearest communication i’ve ever written. lol

  253. LCT DA#2014 says:

    NA still way behind in 2nd place.

  254. LCT DA#2014 says:

    David doing well in his but I’m sure it will get close again as soon as fans wake up. So keep voting to gain a huge lead!
    http://www.theentertainmentlifestyle.com/2012/12/vote-now-your-newsmaker-at.html

  255. LCT DA#2014 says:

    Guess Justin B was in Utah. Wonder if David would have attended his concert had he been home and would he have been invited on stage?

  256. nora says:

    Lct not focusing on NA voting too far behind, focusing on David on Ent. poll. I left voting at 12:30 pm last night did you guys find a faster way to vote or were ther more people voting? They are catching up again, back to voting for a while grandson’s BD at 2 so keep any eye on totals, will vote when I get home Thanks.
