    “Do you see what I don’t see…A chatroom, filled with chatters, full of Christmas cheer…Ho-Ho-Ho…This is weird!!!”

    Could be PN Chat is in the shop for repair. Could be the Chat company went belly-up, like a bowl full of jelly. If not, our last chat may have been last night. There goes Rayna’s attempt to gather past chatters to chat, if so. For now, I suggest patience. Chat was here this morning. I will try patience, to the best of my ability. As you know, I’m an addicted Chat-A-Holic. PN Chat is among the few places I still chat. Plus, PN Chat is the only hope I have of chatting with Peter Noone.

    Going for now. Hoping for the best. Will be distressed until I know for sure. Is looking like Facebook, like the Borg on Star Trek, is assimilating the human race, a person at a time. One day, we may hear Zuckerberg proclaim, “Resistance is futile!” Just one reason we need to find ways to keep PN Chat alive, if it’s not dead. :-) Can I help it, if I read Faust? Until next time, unless Forums is taken down, too. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year early—just in case. Adios! Felice Navidad! (Like me, do you ever hear this, not as Felice Navidad, but as, Fleas Love Da Dog?) ;-)

    I often announce my lunch time in chat. Today, I’m announcing my supper time here. (Is a very late lunch, as I got up very late today.) I’m busy having my daily sneezing fit, at the moment. How has your day gone? :-) A-choo! A-choo! A-choo! Bye! (Check out SandraKay’s post. Perhaps you have an answer.)

    It was fun while it lasted and I hate to see it go ….. Someone posted on FB that they had sent a message to Texxx asking about chat, the reply was, “It’s a wrap. Sorry.” I hope that in time it will be reconsidered. Wishing all of my chat friends a very Merry Christmas and a Happy Noone Year !!

    Hi all,
    So sad that some unhappy person(s) had to ruin chat for the rest. Please reach out to your FB friends and ask them to post in the forums again – this forum and the chat were the only way to hear what happened at the shows and keep in touch with club stuff if you aren’t on Facebook.

    Hello all, I’ve been away because of health trouble. To come back to chat and no chat. OH NO. How will one get to know about Peter and how’s he doing? Also getting to know the wonderful people in here has been great. This is very sad, I guess I will keep coming back to check. PLEASE EVERYONE TAKE CARE. I WISH YOU ALL LOVE AND PEACE..CINDIERS

    Why take chat away from loyal fans that have been here since day one?? Seriously, who gave any worth to what the unstable person in chat said or typed?? Couldn’t the isp be traced and blocked???Seems harsh for those whom did nothing wrong. So the loose cannon wins!

    Sorry to see Chat has gone. I know I haven’t been able to chat for a long while but because of timd differences I don’t find people there when I could chat. I do keep checking to see if anyone was in. I know it will be missed by those who could use it. Hope it comes back soon.

    Did everyone receive the latest Heartbeat in their emails? I got mine on Thursday (yesterday). Chat was also message delivery service. The place to hear of new videos posted, a new Instagram pic from Peter or Natalie, or other club news. Hopefully people are still reading the forums.

    My Heartbeat Newsletter arrived on Dec. 01, 2018. How’s that for puntual? Alice M., I can’t believe some of the people I’ve met in chat, I would never meet otherwise. Even Peter Noone in chat, on his blog, or in Forums, has unknowingly contributed ideas and direction to my blogs. I hope, if possible, to interview two non-music visitors to chat, who are of some note. An unknown person last year, posted a music video of The Crickets, featuring The Crickets first lead singer, after Buddy Holly’s death—a man named Earl Sinks. This led me to write a post on this man and his time with The Crickets—something I was totally unaware of, until the unknown person posted that video. Earl Sinks passed away in May of 2017, a few months after I wrote my post. I’ve almost given up on chat a few times, because I sat alone in chat for long, long periods of time. Yet, startling people or events in chat, convinced me to stay the course. Losing chat is losing a key resource for me. So yes, chat served many worthwhile purposes. I’m not sure if Peter Noone realizes the great value chat has to many of us, beyond routine chatting. I understand he has a bigger picture he must look at, making decisions accordingly about chat, but I sure am sorrowful, if chat must stay gone. Still, I take pride in the fact, as a young boy, I chose to follow a singer-entertainer, who has been so forward-looking and fan-friendly for over 50 years. That was a good choice I made. You’re so right, Alice M. So right. :-)

    Is good news people are receiving the Heartbeat Newsletter. For a time, I didn’t see “The Troll” in chat. When I did, I found what was said, easy to overlook. Then the last rant or two I saw was “Something Else” to borrow one of Peter Noone’s song titles. Was crude and baffling to say the least. Peter saw this and chat was done, kaput. I felt larger crowds of people were showing up. I miss June Bug, Haig, and Sweety Pie, who are not posting in the Forum or can’t sign in to post. Over time, Forums had bugs too. Does anyone know anything about Roselyn, who used to post regularly to the Forums? Had people been able to sign-in to chat, perhaps we could have moved to the Breakfast Nook and left “The Troll” by him or her self. However, many could not sign into chat, forcing them to Central Chat. Oh well, moving back to my real world issues. I miss the whole gang. Would have been nice had Peter Noone dropped in a little more regularly to chat too. :-) Be good or be BAD enough to hold people’s attention. LOL!

    I didn’t see the last rant from the troll. I guess it was impossible to stay on top of it. People can change e mails and get back in even when blocked. Amazing to spend so much time attacking one of the nicest guys I know. More positive activity could possibly have shut them down but who knows. They have set up a chat on Facebook Messenger in the Hermaniacs group. It is a closed group so we will see. But I know many don’t do Facebook.

    Morning world…How’d you sleep last night? I think it was 2 or more people, also. Not counting minor trolls passing through. Was down to 36 this morning in Jacksonville. Not exactly the kind of FL weather that brings tourists running to FL. Sure Central and South Florida are warmer. Okay, I’m outta here!

    Something pulled me back to chat
    I cannot wonder why
    But when I got there much surprised
    I landed with a sigh
    For it was Christmas time again
    When chatters are alight
    And float in from the past
    On any given night
    And yet the place was simply gone
    With NO One there to speak
    No rattle in the balcony
    No floors within to squeak
    And as I read the forum’s news
    A tale unfolded there
    One I’d heard before on chat
    That didn’t seem quite fair
    I remember long ago
    We had some joy and fun
    a nasty chatter ruined it
    Until her deed was done
    She came in with her lies and tricks
    And hurt dear Herman so
    He ran away to Facebook then
    It wasn’t far to go
    And concert nights began to change
    No visits from our friend
    And chatters dwindled into dust
    The magic came to end
    Many years went by and by

    Some kept a vigil light
    And watched in hope that he’d return
    On any concert night
    But deja vu occurred once more
    Apparently by some
    Who came into the chat at night
    To ruin chatter’s fun
    So now I see that chat’s no more
    But Froggy still has hope
    And Alice faithful to the end
    Helping friends to cope
    But why oh why must chat dissolve
    Because of some mean foe
    Who finds a way to ruin things
    Please say it isn’t so!

    I am absent I admit
    From years of chatting here
    But I remember so much fun
    Those memories are dear
    Perhaps I have no right to speak
    I would agree with that
    But I don’t like to think it takes
    The doings of a brat
    To end tradition long upheld
    By those who deem it so
    And shut down Peter’s happy place
    He built so long ago

    For institutions come and go
    And this was surely one
    With Norman as its caretaker
    Filled with silly fun

    And as this Christmas finally comes
    I wish you all good cheer
    And hope to see your chat restored
    In this a brand New Year!

    Silent Nights, it is indeed, Fancy H. Nice to hear a Bellringer of Christmas Past sound cheer anew, here. The Grinch couldn’t steal Christmas, thanks to Anti-Grinch software. Alas, The Grinch stole Peter Noone Chat instead, passing chat to Scrooge. Hopefully Scrooge will be filled with Norman Nightmares, then return, what rightfully belongs to this humble abode. It’s said, Santa sat weeping, when he arrived, finding neither door nor chimney to sneak in for a merry chat. With a heavy heart, he uploads gifts to deliver, on his favorite night. He shakes his head in sorrow, knowing one of life’s great gifts has disappeared, departed ways, has been cast to oblivion like all things unfound, beyone the Wayback Machine. May Sherman and Mr. Peabody come to our rescue, as he once did for a young bloke in need of a good band name. Sigh! Ribbit! Lonely Teardrops. ;-)

    I remember when Fancy H used to write poems that found their way into the old Heartbeat Newsletter we received in the mail. I believe she not only left poems in the Forum too, but posted live poems in one of the old chatrooms. We were blessed with her poetic mind. Hope she returns when she can. Pushing this back to the top. Ribbit! ;-)

    Much to my surprise, I discovered that chat no longer exists. I can’t remember when the first time I went to the chat room here – but at least 10 years ago.The first HH show I saw was around 1998 at the Treasure Chest Casino in Kenner LA. I remember back in 2008 or 2009 being at the show at the Star Plaza and people were in their hotel rooms at the Raddison chating before the show. I realize that there were problems in the chat room recently – I saw it. However, over the years the number of people in chat has declined. As would be expected, a few passed on to the venue in the sky. But the real problem is “change” in peoples on line behavior and lifestyles. Back in the day, we were all on desktops in chat – and you could stay for hours. Now there are a lot more online options to replace time in a chat room. For example, Netflix and the streaming services, Amazon to shop 24/7. Texting instead of talking. Plus Twitter – which PN seems to have recently started posting and replying. And, my favorite, Uber Eats which allows me choices from about 50 restaurants in New Orleans and it takes time to decide.

    There are options for the chat room – such as additional password for access to chat. But that still doesn’t solve the problem of lack of people or sometimes the silence in chat even with people. (Excluding Frogprince and I talking football – #WhoDat?). Gone are the days when some “newbie” would log on and go to chat after their first show. Or the days of people planning on attending the same shows.

    Id this the end of an era ? Who knows…

    Would you believe, I was so busy and happy celebrating my birthday (Feb. 2), then writing and posting the depressing news about The Day The Music Died (Feb. 3), I completely failed to notice Heartbeat did not arrive on the FIRST of February, like it should have? Life happens swifter than you think! VALENTINE’S DAY is fast approaching. Think I’ve posted all my good songs, over the years, for that day. Can you help me by naming a few? Might be repeats I’ve done, but beats, knowing of none. Might be no Valentine’s Day musical post this year. Looks like Heartbeat Herman turned 2019 into a Lept Year Feb. Out. :-)

    NOF, have you tried signing up again. Think many had to sign up again to get Heartbeat Newsletter in their e-mail. Until February, got them all, once Herman restarted them.

    You in New Orleans, are sore losers. Just because the Refs had money riding on the outcome of the game, so cheated to make sure the Rams made it to the Boredom Bowl, is no reason to get upset. Refs have to make a living too. Even though I concede, they failed to earn their paycheck on a few plays or non-call plays, should I say? Should have the Consolation Bowl between Chiefs and Saints. Couldn’t be more boring than I hear the Rams vs. Anointed Patriots, Boredom Bowl was. Let’s hear it for Old Men. Al Bundy must’ve been thrilled to see he’s still relevant. :-)

    To all, particularly you, Froggy…please join us on rockandrollheaven.net some evening. We had a nice chat last evening and would love for more to join us. Good people there and Mason was playing some terrific music (early oldies) and taking requests.
    We could try to meet up on the site at 7:00 central time on certain days if that helps.
    Froggy, if you’ll be on you could let us know on here (I’ll check Noonesense) and I can post on the Noonatics FB chat for folks to join or can PM some folks.
