Hey, Froggy and others. I hope those of us who are friends on Chat can continue the fun. ~ Kathy (Kathryn S.)

“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?) ;-)
December 2, 2018 at 5:34 PM #72792
The Frog speaks wisely…patience indeed!
December 2, 2018 at 5:34 PM #72793
Oops! I meant Raya, I think. The lady from a Long Island in New York. :-) Letting you deal with other typos.
December 2, 2018 at 5:51 PM #72794
I figure that we still have contact with one another here, at least. Good to see you, AEC and Froggy!
December 2, 2018 at 6:15 PM #72795
btw FP iflychat(the chat firm) is active.
December 2, 2018 at 9:36 PM #72797
I hope chat is just out for maintenance. If not I wish everyone Merry Christmas!
December 3, 2018 at 1:17 AM #72811
I hope chat returns soon also. Let’s keep our fingers crossed.
December 3, 2018 at 1:19 PM #72846
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.)
December 3, 2018 at 2:42 PM #72861
So sadden to see chat missing. Chat is a wonderful staple to pn.com Lots of great folks and lots of wonderful fun! Hope to see chat back and the funsters back talking all things PN. Hope to see some of you at Williamsport Scottish Rite on December 14th.
December 3, 2018 at 7:28 PM #72909
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 !!
December 3, 2018 at 9:36 PM #72960
Oh, Toni, that is sad. I hope that Chat can be resurrected at some point. I miss you great people. Merry Christmas!
December 3, 2018 at 10:24 PM #72962
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.
December 4, 2018 at 3:39 AM #73022
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
December 4, 2018 at 9:26 AM #73028
Hello Alice I just posted something on The Facebook Fan Club page on you request hope it works!
December 4, 2018 at 9:47 AM #73029
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!
December 4, 2018 at 10:04 AM #73030
Not a chatter but sorry to see it’s gone. for those of you who do hope it comes back. I’m not on FB either
December 4, 2018 at 10:20 AM #73031
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.
December 4, 2018 at 4:43 PM #73047
I miss you all my friends…………..but while chat is recovering, this is a good time to express our love of our best of Peter Noone & HH. Pass the word for our friends to post here. Meanwhile………….happy shopping. Who else is going to Alma? See you there………I hope.
December 7, 2018 at 2:48 PM #73469
Toni. Saw your picture with Peter. The Jethro tie is priceless.
December 7, 2018 at 8:13 PM #73474
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.
December 9, 2018 at 3:10 AM #73596
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. :-)
December 9, 2018 at 11:38 AM #73696
I am finally receiving Heatbeat regularly. Yay for that, but still hoping something can be set right with chat. But the ugliness just seemed to be growing worse. True fans would never do that. Miss ya Frog.
December 10, 2018 at 2:15 AM #73716
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!
December 10, 2018 at 5:26 AM #73732
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.
December 10, 2018 at 9:14 AM #73785
I hope the troll gets jail terms its criminal harassment none of us or peter needs that carry on
Merry christmas snd happy holidays everyone
I hope chst is up soon with security added .take care
December 12, 2018 at 4:33 AM #73922
Yes I agree frogprince I hope everyone effected contacted the police .what a shame yes losing chat is very sad I met awesome friends through chat .it was like medicine for me and many others it was very much a support that troll is the worst I have seen in the long years I have been around
I’m just so happy that my ugly situation is easing up after long gruelling months I love peter and my noonatic family if anyone would like to see the documents that cleared my families name please email me here.here is my email everyone has to register so I feel safe and trust fellow noonatics firstname.lastname@example.org please no mean or negative emails
Everything that was said never happened i understand completely I would have been the same I was shown the scripts the thief was not nice good news to share also
I hope peter brings back chat with security features for protection of all chatters
If anyone has info on this troll or trolls please let me know
I sent peter information on one troll. This extremely nasty troll I want legal action aswel as peter and others named way out of line. Merry Christmas/ Happy holidays. Everyone is welcome to email take care
December 12, 2018 at 7:09 AM #73923
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!
December 12, 2018 at 10:00 AM #73979
Sorry to hear a few people have ruined chat but; it’s a crazy world out there. I get a chuckle when people in the South complain about temps being in the 30s! come up North, we look forward to those temps all winter long !
December 15, 2018 at 11:17 PM #74281
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. ;-)
December 16, 2018 at 4:30 PM #74302
I noticed the Facebook messenger chat seems to have disappeared. Must not have worked out. Hello to all. And a Very Merry Christmas.
December 16, 2018 at 4:44 PM #74303
I love your poem, Fancy H. We missed your visits to chat. Thank you for expressing it so well!
I hope life is treating you and Hub well, and you are enjoying time with Herman when he visits Florida. Happy holidays.
December 17, 2018 at 5:21 AM #74345
The poem was very nice. Yes I Have also noticed facebook chat is off that is a safe space well secure I enjoye that
Merry christmas everyone
December 17, 2018 at 3:33 PM #74349
Keeping this at the top. Keep coming people. :-)
December 17, 2018 at 4:08 PM #74350
Enjoyed the poem, Fancy H. feeling sad for you chatters as well as for all those of us who would post in Forums but then nobody would respond except for a few.
December 18, 2018 at 4:32 PM #74393
Thank you for the poem, Fancy H. You are talented!…and it perfectly expresses our wish for Chat to return. Merry Christmas and may our wishes come true.
December 19, 2018 at 1:19 PM #74492
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! ;-)

New Orleans FanParticipant
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…
December 23, 2018 at 6:24 AM #74678
I agree with all of you good people
What a shame it is sad for many years Peter has been generous with having a chat for us fans.I think we all have learned a valuable lesson through all this as well. I hope chat gets back up too and the troll get caught Peter and texxx and his beautiful family do not need that any of us do
Merry Christmas noonatics and all the best in health and happiness for 2019
December 23, 2018 at 6:32 AM #74679
No one should hurt anyone yes facebook is a safe space very safe everyone has to sign in so no tricks there it is very sad lets hope for a happier new year and make this work I do not like Herman being hurt or other chatters this isn’t fair Herman is so kind and generous if you do not like someone just leave them be and say nothing just continue to remain happy like old times I miss all of you so much

Thanks for the link Froggy. Sure wished I lived NJ to go see this. Everyone travel safe to Hammond this weekend
January 25, 2019 at 5:15 PM #75924
Linda, are you going to Hammond? My husband and I will be there. We’re looking forward to seeing Peter and the band again.
January 25, 2019 at 8:05 PM #75925
No I’m not Katherine. Wish I were. Thinking about Elkhart tho
January 25, 2019 at 8:35 PM #75926
I won’t be at Elkhart but have tickets for Van Wert and St. Charles :)
February 7, 2019 at 10:28 PM #76984
For those not on Facebook, Jana posted that Heartbeat didn’t go out this month.
February 8, 2019 at 6:08 AM #76985
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. :-)
February 8, 2019 at 6:23 AM #76986
New Orleans FanParticipant
Frog – I haven’t received a Heartbeat in the mail in a few years. Happy belated birthday – are you counting backwards yet ? Feb 3rd this years was the day of the Boycott Bowl here in New Orleans.
February 11, 2019 at 7:09 AM #77037
SpongeBobSquarePants does Hip Hop in his Flip Flops.
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. :-)
February 11, 2019 at 8:39 AM #77038
Froggy, happy belated birthday! I hope you had a good weekend.
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.
