Happy New Year From David!!

We interrupt this post to bring you an important message! YAY!! David’s here to wish us a Happy 2013!! Either his hair grows very fast or this message was pre-recorded ;))) Thank you @Kariontour for a great Thursday surprise! And Thank you David for so thoughtfully having a message ready to share with your fans as we BEGIN. the new year!!

A few caps from this happy sparkly guy, I must! Click to bigger them!


Also, A Message From Kari and David~

Just my own 2 cents~

Thankful, grateful, and very much in agreement with the message given to us by Kari and David today!! As you’ll read later at the bottom of my post, we are taking a step forward into the new year with resolve to do (here) and personally much the same that Kari and David have encouraged us to do through this message. I’m highlighting some of the points of the message here:

**David requests any cards, letters, or gifts to go through the proper channels : the PO provided by him and Kari. David made this request and he set up the PO before he left..there should be no question or confusion.

**Fans are given the privilege to continue sending mail if desired, but  Kari will be sending a box only every other month this year.

**David would like for us to focus on our own goals, priorities, and resolutions too during the months ahead just as he needs this time to focus on his daily goals and life as a missionary.

**We’ll still be getting  updates and “fun surprises” provided by Kari  in 2013 when she’s able.

** David continues to request the privacy he asked all of us for in his vlog prior to leaving. no changes there.

** Any questions? Just use the email link at the top of the post to send them our way.

Thank you David and Kari for sharing these thoughts and guidelines once again with all of us! And here’s to a bright and beautiful 2013 for both of you!!

Jen’s Project Brings Help To ChildFund

Thanks Jen, for giving all of us the opportunity to receive beautiful calendars/pictures while helping to make your project a success for the children!

From Jen Leigh Barry~

So excited to be able to donate the funds ($750) to ChildFund International raised during the calendar/photo fundraiser. This fundraiser could not have been successful without your participation. Thank you!  The donation was done on Davids birthday. Looking forward to telling David about it.

 David & “Bench” ~ a Sweet 2012 Surprise!

While David, Kari, and the whole TV5 crew were working diligently to complete the filming of Nanditio Ako last winter, Bench was also preparing to welcome a new team member into their “Bench” family. What a sweet surprise for all of us!!!

The announcement came and the pics, videos, and appearances soon followed !

David in a first time modeling endorsement gig! What an exciting opportunity for David AND for all of us!! It made perfect sense, really~

From the behind the scene vids, to the photos, and the performances and signings, Bench (along with their hair product line “FIX”) signed the PERFECT person to provide a positive UBER PHOTOGENIC and talented fun singer, musician, artist, philanthropist, actor, AND NOW MODEL to endorse their summer and fall lines!!

I could never fit ALL of the Bench fine moments and memories into one post without crashing the site, so on this “Thursday Lite” post day, I’ll give you a NICE hefty dose of David Archuleta and Bench 2012 to revisit!!!

The Photoshoot & Behind the Scenes Vids

David really seemed to have a blast as he modeled colorful, fun, fresh and trendy clothes for Bench! The photo shoots complete with props and a backtrack of David singing TOSOD couldn’t be better!!!

First, the teaser for Bench /Bench Fix set to Touch My Hand!!! It was love at first frame!!! 🙂

Then later, we had the whole bts vid!! Priceless!!!

Also the Behind The Scenes for Bench Fix and David David set to “Elevator!”
**** I am having terrible technical issues for some reason today with posting vids outside of playlists they’re associated with so I think I’ll just “link” to to a playlist of David’s “Bench experience.” JackRyan has a playlist of 22 wonderful vids that showcase both his bts footage as well as live performances at the launch etc.*** You Can Start the Play list below. BIG thanks to JR for these!!

* * * * *

SOOO Many Great pics and screencaps!!

Bench Signing Credit @nareejo ~

Mouse over the individual photos below to see credits.

And there were collages and gifs!

Bench solo shoot !! cap cred me

Bench photo crop ~cred me~

David Archuleta “Bench” cap cred Archigabbie

Sam had many great “Bench” gifs, too! Like these~


David and his “Larger Than Life” FIX Billboard Self!

Before leaving the Philippines last winter, Kari and David visited his “FIX” larger than life self! Kari recorded David’s humble and sweet  reaction.

Click above to watch on You Tube (I’m having fits with embedding vids today. so sorry :((  )

* * * * *

 David was featured in The Bench Back To School Campaign!

Back to School photoshoot This was tweeted by Kari Sellards~

The BTS vid of this Back To School campaign was great as well!

Most Recently, Bench Revealed  a Pic Of David For Their 2012 Holiday Campaign!!

I’m so grateful that David was given this opportunity while in the Phils last year! There were many “firsts” associated with his trip and along with it being a truly valuable trip for personal growth in his professional life, we as fans greatly benefited as well!!

@Nareejo, @CherryMariano, and others have more LOVELY pics of David’s Bench signings and performances during this time. it’s amazing to think about how much we received as fans and how very much David accomplished during his 5 weeks in the Philippines last winter!!!

* * * * * *

“Got T?”

If this post has you  feeling nostalgic and would like to “feel” closer to the whole Bench experience, looks like you can still order Nandito ako sa Bench T’s and some extras!! I love my Nandito Ako Bench T (Thanks to my angel L who sent it to me!!) Click below to head to BENCH to order!!

A Lighter 2013″

Have a great Thursday everyone. As MaryLou wrote about on Tuesday, we really do intend to be entering 2013 with a mindset to become ‘lighter” in our posting volume  for 2013. Maybe not so much this week as there are plenty of 2012 memories to revisit, but more so in the days ahead.

Personally I have made a promise to myself to accomplish some things while David is away on his personal journey. I’m hoping to do a better job of meeting some of my objectives  in 2013 than I was able to in 2012. A tidier home, a “fitter more rested me,” more volunteering, and hopefully a mini mission are some things I really hope to achieve.

Our “big picture ” here, though remains unchanged. We’ll continue to be here to celebrate and support David Archuleta…always…and as we approach 2014, we plan to be fully refreshed, energized, ready, and raring to go! 🙂

  27. Candy says:

    MODS- How can we thank you for your dedication in keeping FOD up and running all this time, especially with David being away. You deserve sometime to focus on your family, and yourselves!
    Ha, just had a thought…does that leave us ” unsupervised” that could be dangerous! Not that anyone of us would misbehave 😉
    Kari is scaling back too! We will be fine with both taking on a lighter load for the rest of the year, I’m sure we can find ways to entertain ourselves!

  28. kimk says:

    hope kari isn’t leaving D.

  29. kimk says:

    Candy lol with or without folks around.. I am and will be always me. always can gab up a storm about David and well anybody else.

  30. Candy says:

    Kim-that was my first thought too- momentary panic set in…

  31. sarahhazel says:

    Thank goodness….I thought I was in the Twilight Zone….spazzing in a solitude….LOL
    Hi, Candy, kimk!
    Unsupervised???…..sounds fun….hehe….. 😉

  32. sarahhazel says:

    *in a solitary state*

  33. Candy says:

    Sarah- Ha, fun and dangerous! Hmmm, maybe I better see if I still have the taser and get it charged up! 🙂

  34. blue says:

    kimk – doesn’t sound like she is leaving, but she does have other ppl she works for i’m sure. i hope anyway.
    a box every other month. i thought that’s about the schedule it has been? i wonder if ppl have been sending things to his mission directly since they know where it is? that would be messy.

  35. Candy says:

    blue-I wondered that too, at least that is what I got from her message.

  36. glitter*girl (tami lyn) :) says:

    does kari still work for WEG ? with melinda? not clear on what she does exactly and for who?

  37. Candy says:

    Hey Glitter-I dont have a clue, dont see her mention anyone else on twitter but maybe she has a different business account she uses.

  38. blue says:

    she is a tour manager. she never worked for weg but worked a lot with their clients which is how she became david’s tour manager. although she does a lot more for him than managing his tours.

  39. VaBeachArchie says:

    THANK YOU Joanie for the AWESOME post! LOVE rhiminee’s David Archuleta 2012 Memories collage! David’s New Year vlog put one HUGE smile on my face! THANKS Kari!


    Hello sarahhazel, Candy, kimk! “Unsupervised ” …could be interesting!

    Off for another round of voting and then back to the beach and work! ENJOY your David time guys! 🙂

  40. kimk says:

    well hope folks were only sending stuff thru the pobox.
    maybe she has another client etc?
    glad she is not leaving altogether and love the message D sent!

    that is the crouching outfit from the pic she sent with Matt C!!

  41. glitter*girl says:

    thanks blue! just wondering her and melinda are close friends apparently so how did that happen if they didn’t work together?

  42. glitter*girl says:

    oh to be a fly on the wall when kari and miss m go out drinking together! lol!

  43. VaBeachArchie says:

    Hello blue and glitter *girl! Just glad Kari works for David…she’s made quite a difference for all David’s fans during his time away! We have been sooooo lucky!

  68. kimk says:


    one minute I am worrying sbout Kari and the next…


  69. Canadianarchie says:

    What fans would send D mail through the mission instead of Kari.. Some people feel so inclined.. David must have had to apologize to the mission office for receiving so much stuff.. He prob receives the most than other missionaries and you know how D is. Why couldn’t fans send it thru Kari like David asked in the first place. I plan to be less active this year but I’ll def be here fir the countdown to David’s return. Love ya all!

  70. glitter*girl says:

    i think maybe there are alot of fans who don’t even know about kari. she doesn’t have that many followers. 🙁

    One of our favorite people ever, David Archuleta, had a member of his team post a video for all his fans. While David is still on a mission trip, he’s still thinking about all of his fans and wanted to wish them a happy new year. Check out the video above!

  93. kimk says:

  106. Hello everyone.Just got home. I printed a comment, but i don’t know where it went. So you might get two comments from me.
    Glad to see some buzz on Davids New year video.

  107. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    joanie, thank you for the wonderful post. It sure is packed full of David. David sending the NY vlog knocked me for a loop. He sure is full of lovely surprises. That’s one of the hundredth billionioth reasons why we love him. Heart of gold!! He is our sweet hot Chile pepper. I watched jackryans video all afternoon. The photography quality is spectacular. Lorms and her captured all the great moments of him in the Phils. He looked and sounded Davidlicious. Great job!! About David and mail. I thought that it was suggested we don’t send gifts. Just postcards and letters. Why is there always someone who decides they are different? Hmmm!! The book was beautiful. That I could see. It was a card that went wild with wishes for David.

  108. Hi! SGJ, good to see you here. I just got home from work, trying to catch up on comments.

  109. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Hi Linda. Welcome home. I just came from the kitchen to the living room! 🙂 Isn’t it nice hearing and seeing our young man all shiny and smiley as usual? Take your shoes off and take it easy.

  110. sarahhazel says:

    supergrand–Hmmm…”sweet hot Chili pepper” and “Davidlicious”….yesterday, it was “hunkaroma” by cq…..haha….I love my FOD family! 😉 😆

  111. Whats this i read about RAINBOW release on MYX on Sat at 7pm. Is that EST or Phil time.?

  112. sarahhazel says:

    Anyway, got 300 votes in at Musiqtone!

    kimk–the hair!….the long hair!….I miss the long HAIR!

  116. jackryan4da says:

    GG @ 1:26 Re Kari & Melinda

    When Melinda was handling David as Manager under WEG/SEG (Sept 2010 – Mar 2011 – 7 months), Kari came on board as his Road Manager Oct 2010, up to the present. Prior to that, both ladies worked on NSYNC projects but on different timelines.

    Kari & Melinda were both in Manila during DALIM2 – that was in Nov 2010

    Soooooo….is he sayin’ that we’re too clingy and need to get our own lives? lol.

  118. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    sarahhazel- Where’s Ray?? One pic and one vlog and we are mush. 😆 😆

  119. Sarahhazel, working on my 200. right now.

  120. kimk says:

    he comes back will have to hide.. til his hair grows back!

    Linda think 7am est for the premier of David’s Rainbow MV!!?

  121. glitter*girl says:

    thanks jackryan! 🙂

  122. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    josie- Maybe we are too clingy. Fortunately we are afflicted and infected with ODD and there is no cure. It keeps replicating over and over!!

  123. sarahhazel says:

    supergrand–Ray was here….said he stocked on more body bags just in case….LOL

  124. sarahhazel says:

    josie–it’s his fault we got ODD…..which made us somewhat/kinda/sorta/ clingy….haha…..

  125. Sgj, josie, i hope ray has extra-large body bags.

    Ivory Music & Video ‏@IvoryMusicVideo

    ARCHIES!!! David Archuleta’s “RAINBOW (Remix)” music video will premiere on MYX this Saturday, January 5 at… http://fb.me/S1u4o1eP
    OK, it’s 9:57 am now in Manila, so if it’s 7 pm, it will be 6 am EST here….very early!

  127. cq#DA2014 says:

    Nice Happy New Year video, thank you David for leaving us with stuff!!
    My favorite part of Kari’s message is “continue to give updates and give you guys fun treats whenever I can”
    I’m a little confused, I just hope that Kari didn’t mean for us fans to stop continuing to keep David’s name out there so that it will be easier for him to return to his music career. A little mix message, imo.

  128. kimk says:

    jackryan wow you are good!

    josie lol he can’t see what goes on around here etc.. his team perhaps.
    as for folks sending stuff other then to the pobox well David is a pretty big star.
    will be issues.
    if you have no fanbase you have no sales.
    and I know they want that from FEE.

  129. kimk says:

    cq what I got from it she has another job.. fine by me. makes sense. where D is concerned plan on doing as I always do.

  130. kimk says:

    sarahhazel 6 am Saturday morning!? yikes!!

  131. #cq, i don’t read that at all. Could be that she has a lot to do before Davids return and David wants to concentrate on what left of his mission, but in no way do i read that they don’t want us supporting and promoting Davids name.
    We will continue doing what were doing. The reason she is only sending David mail every two months is because it will give him time to read all his mail. I don’t think he can read all the mail at once. JMO.

  132. I’m excited for Sat but if its 6am EST, that means 3am PST. Aye, aye, aye.

  133. pocoelsy says:

    Hi all

    What a great post Joanie, thank you and you can interrupt us anytime with that important super sweet vid. from D. :), what lucky fans we are, he really is a good stinking planer 😀

    4 days into 2013 and we’ve got “tons” of excitement already, at times it doesn’t seem like David is so faraway…make the wait bearable !!

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

    Hello Everyone! Hope you all are doing well this evening, just stopping by for a couple of minutes. How sweet to get New Year wishes from David 😀

  135. kimk says:

    Linda seems about right to me. we got a mv to vote for. two actually and new music perhaps coming. hope we can buy it!!

  136. sarahhazel says:

    kimk–I agree, whether he or they like it or not, D is no regular mish there….there will always be fan mail…..& it will be sad if the mail dwindles…or worse, stops.

  137. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    pocoelsy- Kari and David sure did a lot of planning ahead. Don’t know how they did it. Did they sleep ever while in the Philippines?? David looked great. Sure beats me!!

  138. sarahhazel says:

    pocoelsy–hoping there will be surprises every now & then at least till the next holiday season…..we so don’t want a total 2013 Archudrought…yikes!

  139. kimk says:

    I kind of think all this has not been bad at all. even got a lot done here in my real life.
    win win way I see it.
    also it seems David is doing well where he is plus his voice and Spanish accent is getting better!
    happy camper!
    oh and did I mention that MC pic yet today!!?

  140. sarahhazel says:

    Beth–hope you are feeling better today.

  141. cq#DA2014 says:

    kimk and Linda, good points.
    Lol, I just am so enjoying the non-drought, drought, that I don’t want it to stop.

  142. kimk says:

    sarahhazel think they knew there would be issues. why done this way my guess.
    anyway so far so good.

  143. Kimk, i will have to set my clock at 3am sat morning. I hope they follow through with thier plans for releasing RAINBOW MV. 3am is very early in the morning.

  144. pocoelsy says:

    Excited about Rainbow MV. I actually don’t have a chance to see a clearer version of it yet since I haven’t got my FEE copy…but I will…soon.. yay !!

    Kimk, good to know that there’re a lot of things to look forward to in Archuland, new music sounds great and yes hope we can purchase it 🙂

  145. sarahhazel says:

    Random thought: Wouldn’t it be awesome if David acted in a Spanish mini-tele-novela when he comes back since he will be more fluent in the language by then?!….Maybe after he releases a Spanish album and do a Latin American tour?! 😀

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

    Hey sarahhazel! Thanks. Still stuffed up & dont tell the fine feathered fellows, but I just had some Campbells Chicken Noodle Soup. Sometimes, when you’re sick, you just gotta have some Campbells CNS 😀 At least I got a little sleep here & there today. Last two nights almost no sleep at all. Interesting things on tv at 2 in the morning,lol. I could’ve purchased a pancake flipper, a blender, a steamer, a shaver, a convection oven, hair products, etc………but I didnt 🙄

  147. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Hi Beth- You’re not feeling good either. I’m just not right yet. Trying to rest. Sneezing a lot. Seeing David today sure made me feel better. Isn’t he a doll?

  148. sarahhazel says:

    Linda–wow, you’re actually gonna see it at 3 am?…..kinda feels like the Asian tour again….haha!
    (not sure if I wanna get up before 6 am….I’m not an early morning person)

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

    I dont think Kari said anything new in her message. I’m sure she works for other people, along with David. I thought sending a box of mail every other month was what she did already. It seems to me that it really meant alot to him with that last pic we got with his Birthday/Christmas mail he received. I think we’ve been treated with far more than I ever thought possible, so cant Complain 😀

  150. josie says:

    Linda~ But if he only gets mail every two months, then each time he gets it, there’d be TWICE as much mail. Right? I dunno. I’m confused. lol. I just feel like he’s saying, “I’m consumed by what I’m doing & have to leave my life behind, so the peeps who were part of that life need to let me go as well.” 🙁 Or…maybe I’m just in a bad mood. lol.

  151. pocoelsy says:

    That exactly what I think, do they ever sleep espcially during 5 weeks in Phil and before mission !! what are their secrets sometimes I’m not convince that he’s a real human being …do angels sleep…anyone enlight me?

    Somehow I’m sure that they’ve planed very well all along but they are so good.. at times too good at keep em under wrap, sure that they will throw us some bones every now and then 🙂 afterall he said he’ll come back to make music for us..right :), if he totally be quiet for 2 years people may lost interest and leave/forget him (while typing this it breaks my heart if people really leave him just because he’s been away for 2 years)

    Beth Hey are you feeling better today? I missed you yesterday 🙁

  152. sarahhazel says:

    Beth @9:39–I agree with ya wholeheartedly. 🙂

  153. Beth well said. Gee! I hope you get to feeling better. No fun bieng sick.
    Whose taking care of the boys while your sick.

    SGJ, hope you get to feeling better too. Theres lots to do before David gets back.

  154. sarahhazel says:

    josie–LOL…it’s probably just your mood. 😉

  155. sarahhazel says:

    Beth–no FFFs helping you?….what are they up to these very chilly days?

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

    Hey supergrand! Awwwe, sorry to hear you’re not feeling well too. Hope you feel better, soon, sooner, soonest 😀 Thats for sure, David’s smile sure puts a smile on your face & heart 😀

  157. sarahhazel says:

    pocoelsy–I’m still holding on to that promise of more music!….Yup, that’s all I want! 🙂

  158. sarahhazel says:

    supergrand–hope you feel better too….***handing you & Beth 2 big bowls of homemade CNS & virtual ((hugs))!***

  159. kimk says:

    Josie haven’t sent him anything lately. maybe in March? one year. would imagine a slow down?

  160. kimk says:

    hey we should shoot for April 1.. to have a lil party?
    less then one year to go!!
    April Fools Day.. makes sense
    that is us!!

  161. josie, I still don’t know where you are reading all this but its ok.
    David would never ask us to leave him totally alone.
    Everyone reads what they want out of what (Kari) posted.
    Around here things will just go on the way they have.
    Enjoying everything David.

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

    Thanks pocoelsy, miss talking with you guys too, I just get so stuffed sitting at my computer, lol. I think it reached its severity peak last night into this morning, so hopefully I’m back to getting better, just need some sleep. Hope you are doing well!

    Linda & sarahhazel, The FFF’s are doing ok. I recently bought a monopoly game & they’re playing it, non-stop, they’re addicted to it. It keeps them out of my hair, so that parts good 😀 They wont fix me any chicken soup, but, well, thats understandable 😆 But, they’re helping with the laundry, dishes & garbage detail, they’re swell 😀

    Thanks sarahhazel, I should clarify though, I meant that with all we received from David & Kari, I cant complain(didnt mean to imply no one else could, lol)

  163. sarahhazel says:

    Beth–no complaints here either…haha…. 🙂

    kimk–April Fools Party…..LOL….that’s us….it’s perfect….love your idea! 😆

  164. Kimk–April 1st sounds good to me for a party.

  165. Sarahhazel got 200 in. will try and get 300 before bed.

    I doubt tho that “lighter 2013” for you all have to be later than sooner…!! look at all the excitement stuffs we’ve got lately…hehe… love you <3

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

    It is just about criminal how DAVID ARCHIE IS SO SO SEXY in the Bench pics and videos…….NO ONE CAN BE THAT GOOD LOOKING!!!!!!!…..Miss Vicki

  171. josie says:

    Linda~ I dunno where I’m reading it, either. Just…ignore me tonight. lol. Beth~ Never heard of chickens playing Monopoly. That must be an interesting sight. 🙂

  172. kimk says:

    pocoelsy folks will leave perhaps.. but all it will take is that gorgeous voice, smile, face to start things going again. know it!
    besides with Rainbow and now whatever Ladyv has cooked up his name will stay out there.
    lol and us gabbing up a storm.

  173. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Thanks sarahhazel. Missed yesterday. Can’t stay away too long. Glad I got here today. Never a dull moment . David is doing great on his mission and we are trying our darndest to be good fans. Behind every great man is a great women. In David’s case he has millions of women behind him!! It’s a win, win situation. 😆

  174. Sarahhazel, Goodnight! sweet Davidlicious Dreams..

    Fellows are a trip, thats for sure. Never
    know what they’re going to do 😀 G’night

  177. SGJ, Well said. LoL! 1 million women.

  178. pocoelsy says:

    Sarahhazel, good night 🙂

    Beth, Supergrand, aww get well soon, not fun being sick. I read somewhere that if you cut some onion and put it beside your bed or better around the house, the onion will absorb the germs so fast because it has antibacteria or virus properties ( I can’t remember the tecnical term for it hehe).. you’ll get better pretty quick but you have to bear the smell of it !!! the onion will turn black !! you have to throw it away cause it poisionous and full of germs !!!

  179. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    SweetHotChiliPepperDavidLiscious…..LOL….Miss Vicki

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

    Thanks Miss Vicki, G’night

  183. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Goodnight sarahhazel 😆 😆

    kimk- April Fools, yep we are that and then some!! 😀

    Josie- I think you got it from kari’s message about the mail. You’re fine. David always wants us to do something besides adore and go gaga over him. Silly boy!!

  184. pocoelsy says:


    Yes perhaps, but like you said with that voice the looks we shouldn’t worry at all !!! i just wish to see tons of fans welcome him home when he get back not just a handful old coot like us hehe!! do i say it right “coot” ? don’t even know what it means hehe if not I apologize !!!

  185. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    pocoelsy…WOW…Never heard that before about the onion before…..Miss Vicki

  186. pocoelsy says:

    Night Beth, have a restful night

    Miss Vicky, since when David add “SweetHotChiliPepperDavidLiscious” to he middle name … haha like it, he’s excatly that !!! silly boy !!

    Linda, millions women 😀

  187. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Goodnight Beth- Feel better. 🙂

    pocoelsy- Thanks for the tip. Garlic has germ fighting properties too. Had a few onions go bad in my pantry couple of times. Come to think of it I wasn’t sick at the time! HaHa No, thanks again for your advice. 🙂

  188. pocoelsy says:

    Miss Vicky, unbeliveable isn’t it !!! I read it from some reliable article somewhere ..can’t remember!! worth a try, I think we all have onion in our kitchen and it’s cheap 🙂

    Have to go cook some lunch for the fam, talk to you all later. Have a good night/day all.

    Hey kimk….No need to worry….. we won’t leave…..David will be back bigger and better than ever……Miss Vicki

  191. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Linda, I put a couple of votes in Q102 this afternoon. David was 23.36 to 73.64 the Wanted. He’s a little behind. Are you going to vote on that one?

  192. Shanny in Australia says:

    Hi guys. 🙂
    Went to see the hobbit in 3D last night. Family has been hounding us about it for months. It was good – same quality as LOTR as was to be expected. Want to see Les Mis next.

    Such a surprise when I logged on this morning and saw dear david had left us a message. 🙂
    Kari saying she’s going to be focusing on other things does make me feel a little worried but thats just irrational emotions…i have often wondered if she was working for anyone else at the same time (as you’d expect her to be doing) and if so, why was she not tweeting about them too? So, I guess we might see some non-david related tweets from her now? That’s ok and to be expected. Also, I bet she’s under contract with david still, so i’m sure he’s still in good hands with her. It probably just means we will have to fend for ourselves a little bit more while we wait.

    As for the mail…it could be that people missed the cut off date for the Christmas/birthday mailing and so decided to send directly to the mission? If they did, hopefully they won’t do that anymore. Maybe that’s why the call for privacy was renewed and reminded again?

    And….LOVE that tweet from LadyV! Wow, if things continue like this till he gets back, i’ll be asking …drought? What drought? We have had waaay more than I had come to expect – especially the last few weeks with the devotional and the birthday book photo directly from the man himself and now the NY’s message. 🙂

  193. supergrandjudie#DA2014 says:

    Hi Shanny- Great day hearing from David! Going to have to say Goodnight to all. Take care. See you tomorrow.

  194. glitter*girl says:

    this whole privacy issue is confusing. if he wanted privacy why did he go on star search and idol? he obviously wanted fame. so maybe once he got the fame he didn’t like it? but that doesn’t make sense either cuz he seemed to be thrilled with the attention he got in manila. it’s all just too weird to even try to figure out so i’m not going to! lol 🙂 if david wants us to leave him alone he’s gonna have to come right out and say so.

  195. SGJ, i thought q102 was over. No i haven’t been voting on there.
    Goodnight SGJ Sweet Davidlicious Dreams.

    What better way to ring in the new year than with a message from @DavidArchie? Watch it here: http://bit.ly/WpblET

  197. Shanny- we went through this year, thinking that we were going to have a big drought, and wondering what we were going to do. Look what happened we had so much from Kari and David.I have faith in Kari and the ARCHULETA. We will have ups and lows again but we manage to get through them. Lots of ARCHUGOODIES coming up.

  198. Bychance says:

    Well…….just watched 2 episodes of NA!! Wow….intense and sad, and kind of weird at first seeing David act…..but love seeing him act!lol. Thanks kmb for the links! I know I am going to love this!

    Well, going to bed. Maybe putting an onion next to it?!?….don’t want to get what’s going around! Hope Beth and sgj feel good soon!

    Going to look at the gorgeous Bench stuff first……oh my heck does he look good!.. thanks Joanie! Goodnight all!

  199. nora says:

    evening everybody if anybody is still voting on the Piony ent. Poll the second place prog. is catching up with NA just a couple hundred votes behind need more votes. Going back to vote.

  200. kimk says:

    glitter girl sure he wants his concerts sold out, folks to buy his music and be on the radio when he was doing his music career? maybe not right now.. not a good idea when you are knocking on folks doors you don’t know.. too famous can cause issues I would suppose? for me not worrying about it all. don’t plan on sending him packages, bothering him where he is or for that matter never really did it at his concerts either.
    do know when I saw him at Myrtle Beach he was treated like someone pretty famous.. they were wild for him.
    hope all is ok in Chile and there are no security issues.

  201. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Night all….Miss Vicki…..

  202. kimk says:

    Shanny hubs and I got a 3D tv for xmas.. hope The Hobbit comes out soon in 3D want to see that!

    Kimk, I really think the only issue that David is having in Chile is rejection. I really think that if he was being chased by fans, we would of heard, with technology the world is mighty small.

  206. Candy says:

    Im so tired of that danged privacy issue! 2014 cant come soon enough for me. What more can we do, I think we dont a darn good job of respecting his privacy! And with mods on “light duty” it will be interesting Im sure.

  207. Ali says:

    In regards to the note on fan mail, I believe that Kari had been sending him a package with fan mail once a month so that would be what she’s talking about with only sending every other month this coming year. There seemed to be quite a flurry of fans sending him letters/cards/etc in the past couple months or so with the birthday & holiday so he was probably a bit overwhelmed at the volume. I don’t see anything in that statement indicating that Kari will no longer be working for David or that fans need to go away — just that there’s still over a year left and they have things to be focusing on and it might help things go smoother if the fans weren’t sending so much for them to have to go through. That’s the way I interpreted it, anyway.

    I know some people feel a need to send David mail quite often and if it is important to you, ok. But I don’t think that David necessarily needs mail from every fan each month to prove that they still care about him. From everything I’ve heard about a missionary’s schedule, he’s quite busy down there and knowing David as we do, we know he would feel it important to read through each letter he receives as well. It must be fairly exhausting. That’s actually one of the reasons I haven’t sent him a card or letter since he left. I did sign the group bday card though. I don’t think it’s wrong if you send him mail but I think it’s also important to think about the amount of time he has to devote to that and maybe scale accordingly. I guess I just hope he feels the good vibes I’m sending him through the air lol. I still support David 100% and promote him here at home whenever I can. 🙂

  208. meganloves2lol says:

    sometimes i tend to take things the wrong way. but when i read kari’s e-mail, it kinda sounded to me like david wants us not tot hink about him for the next year. sounded like he was saying don’t think about me all the time, move on. did anyone else take it this way? i hope i’m wrong. i’d feel so hurt if all the sudden david wants us all to just forget about him until he gets back.

  209. kimk says:

    ahh ya ya!!

    you know David does have it in his blood to dance!!


  210. Ali says:

    megan – that’s not what I got at all. but that’s just me. i just made a super long post about it though so i won’t burden anyone by typing it all out again lol.

  211. glitter*girl says:

    was reading jordan’s blog and he said they will no longer get to call home on mother’s day 🙁

  212. Candy says:

    megan-I not sure how her email or the msg from David was to be taken. But unfortunately it wasnt clear, left too much open to personal interpretation. Was David saying thanks for all the support the past year but Im busy trying to focus on what I came here to do…like I said it left the door wide open.

  213. glitter*girl says:

    what kind of religion tells people they cannot call their mother? i will never understand such a thing 🙁

  214. Candy says:

    WHAT????????????? They cant call home on Mothers Day, gessh *biting tongue*

  215. kimk says:

    megan aww.. he has new music coming out my guess so pretty sure if that were the case there would be absolutely nothing? the video we just got was an example of keeping his name out there.
    so was the BTS video. nice one too.
    guessing some dummies sent packages and such to the mission office?
    got me.
    also think Kari might have a new tour to work on or perhaps something else? guess of course but has to make money and nothing coming in much by where David is concerned.

  216. glitter*girl says:

    goodnight u guys. i feel very sad for david right now 🙁

  217. kimk says:

    Ali seems about right.

    ahh guys.. remember this is Davids choice to do this.. sure he knows what is up.

    anyway off to sleep
    pleasant dreams and hope Ladyvmusic will send us a snippet of what music she is working on for David!

    I LOVE Look Around!!

  219. Ali says:

    kimk – i’m with you on that one. they’ve worked too hard preparing things for the fans for them to be trying to tell fans to go away for a year. they want fans to still be engaged, just they could prob could use a little breathing room to get stuff done. and lol i wouldn’t be horribly surprised if some stuff was being sent right to the mission office or even being given to David in person.

    i have no doubt in my mind that David appreciates his fans and very much plans to have a music career when he comes back. which is why they worked so hard before he left. his focus needs to be mainly on what he took the 2 years for right now though. imo.

    i’m still gonna be hanging out here spazzing over him and the things that i think they have planned for us for this year and dreaming about the possibilities of 2014. i guess i’m just a hopeless fangirl but i’m ok with that lolol.

  220. kimk says:

    Ali ha.. me too. not going anywhere.
    if that was the case first time something crazy popped up I went poof.
    and from what I remember that has been from day one!

    ahh it is midnight.. yup mighty slow around here.

    maybe we can ask LadyV for a snippet of what she is working on soon?? 🙂

  221. Ali says:

    i’m super excited about the LadyV song. or songs. i really liked the stuff he’s done with her in the past 😀

    Sorry for the late video of the day. Was helping my daughter move into her new apt. today. I’m sore!!!! I love that performance. Georgeanne’s video is amazing, close up and you watch the jumbo screen behind him at the same time. Cool!!

    My battery died as soon as I posted. 🙄 Gotta little bit of charge on it now but not much, still trying to get through all of today’s comments.

    I don’t think david is telling us to leave him, just encouraging us to use this time to do something useful with our lives – thats his style. 🙂
    And yeah…sucks about the mothers day thing. Mission Presidents decision for some reason.

  225. Shanny in Australia says:

    Poco – ‘coot’ lolol
    It’s a slang type word. An old coot is an old person, slightly derogatory way of saying it but also kind of silly and teasing way of referring to an old person. When I think of an ‘old coot’ I think of an old, leathery, stooped, grumpy person. lol But as I said, it’s mostly used in a light hearted teasing kind of way.

    Battery’s just about dead again….bye! Lol

    Hey guys…….I’m reduced to going to an ARLO GUTHRIE concert in Hampton, Va in February with my old Hippie friends……Just ordered the tickets……Love Arlo….Had his love songs played at my wedding 30 years ago…Partied with him in Charleston, West Virginia when I was 18 and later in the alley behind the Mosque in Richmond, VA when I was in my 3o’s…….Love Arlo……but miss David more……Miss Vicki

  227. Miss Vicki DA#2014 says:

    Would love to have David sing some of Arlo’s love songs…..Ocean Crossing…..My Love, Chilling of the Evening….Highway in the Wind…Darkest Hour…….Miss Vicki

    Night all….Miss Vicki

    :(:( OK, that’s it. I’m hitchiking to Chile and giving him a hug on Mother’s Day.

  230. Goodnight everyone. I’m sticking around here until somebody runs me out.
    See everyone tomorrow.

  231. cq#DA2014 says:

    I just can’t believe that the privilege of calling on Mother’s Day was taken away. That sounds so controlling, it’s got to be a mistake. These guys give two years of their lifes to the church….I just don’t get it.

  232. meganloves2lol says:

    nice to see everyone weigh in with their thoughts. i loved what you had to say ali 🙂 and i guess we all do have to remember that a lot of times david has a hard time explaining what he means, he’s even said that. btw, REALLY random, but i never get to talk to other david fans, and i would love too. would anyone mind following me? my twitter is meganloves2lol 🙂 Have a good night all!

  233. VaBeachArchie says:

    Good morning FOD! HAPPY FRIDAY!

    Guess the luxury of seeing my family 5 days a week on Nana patrol has me spoiled! Can’t imagine not seeing my child or directly hearing her voice…..

    On the VOTE! Will keep doing my routine of David support….working, Nana patrol and life keeps me pretty busy too!

    ENJOY YOUR DAY and David time! 🙂

    @DavidArchie David Archuleta now has 3 million LIKES on Facebook. Gained about 1 mil in 2012, during “career break”!


  242. jhen says:

    About Kari message, I think it’s just a reminder. And I don’t think David want us to forget him, but to focus on our personal responsibilities. While he is on mission, which is good also.Maybe he know we are discussing the rumors of going to college, and he want some privacy, I don’t know. But Kari message is not bad.

  243. kimk says:

    over 8000 views!
    he is so stinkin adorable!

    speaking of New Years resolutions.. don’t usually do them cause I kind of have this list going thru the year that helps me keep in tow.
    did this year though.

    mine was to walk my pups even if it is cold and rainy.
    big baby with the cold for a while now.. lol think it may be my time living in NH that
    caused that.
    anyway have been doing it for about a month now.. umbrella and puffy coat in tow.
    ha been snagged in my slippers a few times.
    not sure if I will keep it up but do know my pups sure hope so!
    looking forward to the day when hubs and I get back to Florida.
    almost there.. about half way thru getting my house ready for sale.
    11 rooms.. 5 baths.
    ha what was I thinking!
    have a fabulous day folks.. wonder if we will get another hint about just what
    Lady V has in mind today!

    McKenzie Harris ‏@McKenzieHarr

    wow that is fabulous!!

  245. nora says:

    goodmorning everybody NA has fallen way behind on the entertainment poll he is about 6,000 votes behind, they must have stayed up all night to vote, when i went to bed we were ahead. vote if you can.

  246. VaBeachArchie says:

    Hello kimk, jhen and Archies everywhere! TGIF! Hard week at work…..getting ready for inventory and getting lots of stock… FOR SPRING!! LOL

    kimk….GREAT now with all the technology to be able to see and talk to family whereever they are! Whatever did we do before? lol Thought you were entertaining the idea of moving to Seattle to be near your sons and Grandkids…too rainy and cold? Know I love it here….NOT too hot or cold and have the beach!

    Hope those NEW fans that David has picked up will STEP UP and support him and his music ….always wonder why they don’t if they’re fans???

    jhen….Wonder if all the LOVE shown by the fans for his birthday and Christmas overwhelmed David? Add to that seeing and talking to his family after all those months…can’t imagine! Know I’d be an EMOTIONAL MESS!

    Off to VOTE !

  247. VaBeachArchie says:

    Good morning nora! On the vote!

  248. Penny (dangitdavid) says:

    Good morning all!! Happy Friday!! Just going through the comments and throwing in my 2 cents :). I didn’t find Kari’s message confusing at all…just a reminder to keep on trucking the way we have been for the last year. Whether she sends a package to David once a month or twice a month, they didn’t tell us to stop sending stuff! They asked right from the start that no gifts be sent..just cards and letters! I feel he doesn’t need to be bombarded with mail to know we are still here waiting for him….the Archuleta knows we aren’t going anywhere 🙂 And I didn’t really see where she said David was receiving mail thru the mission office? I guess everyone interprets things in their own way but I kind of take it as it is…try not to over analyze for any hidden message! JMO

    About the no calling home on Mother’s Day….I don’t pretend to even understand any of the rules regarding a mission and don’t try! I’m a fan of David the singer, not the Mormon… as his fan, whether I understand or agree with his decisions or not, I will support him to the end in whatever he chooses to do :).

    I’m a long time fan of this site and love the varying opionions of everyone here! David has tbe best fans on the planet :). Now I’m going to start my day….I hope you all have a great day :).

    Hello Everyone! Hope you all are doing well today. Staying home sick again today, but the Fine Feathered Fellows are a big help. Aside from the Chicken Soup boycott, lol, they’re taking good care of me 😀

    I agree with Penny. No big deal with Kari’s message. Same thing as before. OK, to send cards & letters, but like with what kimk suggested a while back, post cards would be the best, as his time is limited, difficult for him to read a ton of letters. He sent a pic of him with the mail for gosh sakes, he appreciates it. People can send him cards & letters, just maybe short letters or post cards the best.

    Well, gotta go, have a great day all, TTYL!
