What's NEW?

I know that when you go to a web site, you're usually wondering,
'Has anything changed??' and 'What's NEW?'
Here you will find the latest updates to our fan club website.
Hopefully, this will help to make the site more user friendly.

Check in often for the latest NEW pages, or information.

Just a note..
Sometimes when opening a web page that has lots of graphics (or large image or sound files),
it may be necessary to refresh the page in order for all the images to load...especially with the newer systems.
If you are accessing our website via a mobile phone, you probably are NOT getting some of the intended effects.
On some phones, the background music will not be heard...also...the different styles of scripts such as 'Java' may not be available.
So, when possible, please view our website via a computer, for full enjoyment.
The pages I build for our website include different types of scripting and lots of graphics, so...
for BEST performance, I do suggest using 'Internet Explorer' for browsing.
It has been brought to my attention that other browsers (Firefox, Google Chrome, etc.) do NOT allow the background music, and some of the scripting
that MOST of these pages will include. SO sorry about that!
WHEN I GET A CHANCE, I will try to find out how to make my pages adaptable to at least MOST browsers.
I am NOT a PROFESSIONAL by ANY stretch of the imagination, Ha!...but I will do my best to make this website work for as many as I can.
So sorry that some of you haven't been able to get the 'full effect' of some of our material.
If you see problems with viewing of our website, please EMAIL ME.
Thanks SO much to so MANY of you, for your support in my efforts to keep this site up and running.

I'm very excited about the James Rogers show for Shriners at the Shrine Temple in Chattanooga, TN.
Since James' retirement from Dollywood, he has been enjoying the new world of 'Grandparenting'!
This has had an impact on his traveling performances.
James has canceled his annual Christmas concert to instead do this event for the Shriners Hospital at the Shriners Temple in Chattanooga.

NOTE from Debbie: "It is a very worthy cause and we hope everyone can come.
Not saying for SURE...but we are enjoying retirement and the grand kids so much, this may be one of his last ones."

Below you will find all the details about this special show.
I do hope to see MANY of you there!
