Welcome, My Dear Shoevians, to ‘Journey to LA –August 9th, 2106’ right here at ‘The Other Shoe’! It is great to be back here writing and publishing on my blog. The Democratic Primary is now over so I can feel free to write and post what I really feel with (less) fear of recriminations. Secretary Hillary Clinton is the ‘Democratic Party Nominee for President’ and (at this moment in time) she is walloping the (dubious and nefarious) Donald ‘Thieving’ Trump by double digits in most polls. However, that is not the thrust of today’s article.

.

 

.

Today I am here to relay the events, and videos, of my most recent trip form (my home in) Orange County all the way into Rolling Hills Estates/Rancho Palos Verdes of Los Angeles. It is a long and, often, arduous journey for myself and Allen (my caregiver/roommate).  For your viewing enjoyment, today, I have several ALL NEW pictures. These images were taken at Disneyland and in Rancho Palos Verdes during my journey. As well, there will be four All New Videos for your viewing pleasure. I hope that all of you, My Dear Shoevians, enjoy reading this article and viewing these videos and images as much as I did providing them to you!

.

 

.

The video, above, was taken in the parking lot of the building I live in just prior to the OCTA Access bus arrived to transport me to Disneyland. For those of you, My Dear Shoevians, those are new to this site (and my ‘Journey to LA’ series? Once each, and every three months, I make a very long (and tiresome… often upsetting) journey from here in Orange County (Huntington Beach to be exact) all the way (past Long Beach and San Pedro) into Los Angeles. My final destination is the Promenade on the Peninsula. In the image, below, you can get a good idea of the journey I make… via Public Transportation (for the Disabled). I start from the right side of the image where you see ‘Westminster’ and travel all the way to the left side of the image to the red marked above ‘Dr. Gorlick’ in Rolling Hills Estates.

.

.

Now some of you, My Dear Shoevians, might (reasonably) wondering “Why?” do I make this long and tiring journey every three months, and with good reason. Dr. Gorlick is my doctor. I started under his care back in 2005, when I was approved for Medicare (finally) and was able to pick my own doctor. Since I have been under his care I have; undergone surgery (Cervical Fusion) on my neck, fell victim to a TIA (Transient Ischemic Attack) (a type of mini-stroke), developed ‘Left Foot Drop’, become confined to a power chair, been diagnosed with Non Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, undergone chemotherapy, and (most recently) been diagnosed with (now) “Severe Degenerative Disc Disease” “Severe Spinal Stenosis” “Multiple Herniated Discs” and (now) the discovery that the degenerative disc disease is now in my lumber spine, too.

.

.

Through it all Dr. Gorlick has ‘had my back’! When I come to him needing a power chair, he helps me get all sorts of paperwork to a prosthetics doctor (even though that… nut case REFUSED to SUBMIT the paperwork) Dr. Gorlick HELPED! When I discovered a lump under my chin, he examined it and referred me to a doctor that helped diagnose my cancer. When I was diagnosed with cancer Dr. Gorlick (again) gave me the name of an Oncologist that he personally knew!   When I come to him and I am unable to bear the level of pain, he helps by increasing my pain medications… time and time again!

.

(Danny @ Disneyland with Matterhorn in Background)

.

THAT is “Why?” I make this (often arduous) journey ever three months! I am very fortunate to have found a doctor as experienced… as knowledgeable… as compassionate… as caring and considerate as Dr. Gorlick that accepts Medicare! I was lucky to have found him, some eleven years ago, and I am fortunate that he continues my care. Now back to the journey, itself. My Dear Shoevians, I have to be honest (as I am in all things) and tell you that this journey? Well, this journey was one of the most uneventful… quickest and most enjoyable journeys of all that I have made to Rolling Hills Estates in the past five years!

.

(Danny at Dr. Gorlick’s Office August 9th, 2016)

.

For five years I have sat at Disneyland, dropped off by OCTA Access, to be picked up my LA Access. Every single time we have made, at least one, stop during our journey into L.A. However, not this time! This time the driver was a Trainee and there was a supervisor in the back with Allen. There were no pickups. There were no drop-offs! We traveled, quickly, from Disneyland to Rolling Hills Estates and made it there in about an hour! That gave Allen, and myself, time to pick up a little lunch at the Subway in the mall next to where Dr. Gorlick’s office is located.

.

.

As well, on the ride back there was only one person to drop off, and then it was a quick ride into Orange County. This time I even convinced the driver to use the Carpool Lane (I know… you would think that they all would want to use the carpool lane!!… Not so!) The drive home was quick and uneventful and that left us (Allen and I) the time to make the Final Video that you see above! My Dear Shoevians, that video was one of the very best I (feel) I have ever made! It was fun! It was spontaneous! And, I enjoyed making the video.

.

With that, My Dear Shoevians, I will bring this edition of ‘Journey to LA’ to a close. Oh, yeah, Dr. Gorlick improved my pain medications! So, YES! YES, I will be working towards writing and publishing on a regular basis, again.

.

I would like to express my deep appreciation to you, My Dear Shoevians, for your interest in my blog(s), my writing, my stories and hope that you drop by often and SHARE my blog and articles (via your social media) so that others can enjoy, too!

.

THANK YOU!

.

Adieu!

Danny Leaving for L.A.
                                                                                                       Danny Leaving for L.A.

Welcome back, My Dear Shoevians, to The Other Shoe. I am dropping by, today, just to keep all of you, My Dear Shoevians, up to date on the status of my; writing, blog and publishing. Today, at about 1PM, I dropped off my ‘Writing Computer’ (the computer that I have all my writing, publishing, and animation software… on) at HB Computerz for the replacement of the motherboard. I am holding my breath… keeping my fingers crossed… and thankful that (prior) to dropping it off I backed-up all my documents and pictures.

.

This is a very tense and trying time, my Dear Shoevians, for this budding writer/publisher. This is THE computer that I wrote; ALL 675+ articles that are The Other Shoe, every page of ‘The Horror in Smithville’ (my teen-preteen scare novel), and every single line of ‘The Adventures of Princess Nadia’ (including the creation of Rattopia back in 2009). This computer holds a very special place in my writing zeitgeist and I am hoping beyond hope that it is returned to me working and ready for another ten years of writing.

.

Well, that is the end of this Status Update and I am hoping that I get the computer back, soon, so that I can continue my writing. I am very happy that, at this point, I have written and published THREE articles, this week. I am going to try to write… with my tablet… or a ‘barrowed’ computer, over the weekend. If not, just as soon as I have my computer back, I will push to get off another status update, and return to my regular writing schedule.

.

Thank you, all, for your; kindness, understanding, and support while I am working to reestablish my blog… and my writing and publishing endeavors.

.

Thank you!

                   Welcome back, My Dear Shoevians, to The Other Shoe. First, I would like to say “Thank you!” to all you Shoevians that keep coming back… and viewing… and reading… and sharing. You ARE the BEST! Second, I would like to express my heartfelt apology for not“returning to publishing” as I stated in my last article back on February 13th, 2016. Finally… an explanation.

.

When I wrote my last published article, it was my real and genuine intent to work towards returning to my regular writing and publishing schedule. However, as most of us know, between desire and reality lives a gulf of possibilities… and a world of tears and broken promises. The fact of the matter is; on the morning of February 14th (Valentine’s Day) I started up my computer (with the intent of writing several articles, to be published over the next week), as I have thousands of times before, launched Google Chrome and brought up the admin pages of my four blog locations.

.

I had just logged on to all four admin pages… and… BAM! BSOD!!! (Blue Screen of Death). The computer rebooted, after saving the dump file, and…  it… was… dead! The video adapter was not working. The computer ran incredibly slow, and I was unable to connect to the internet… regardless of what I did. Over the next two weeks, whenever I was out of pain enough, I worked on the computer. I did everything I had ever learned about video cards, and Windows errors… to no avail. My Dear Shoevians, within hours of publishing that promise… I was unable to honor my commitment.

.

The following Monday, not the 15th but Monday the 22nd, I took my computer back to the people that had fixed it the last time. They kept the computer for TEN DAYS! Only to return it to me… unrepaired, explaining that “the motherboard needs to be replaced… it is on backorder.”I am to bring my computer back (again) Thursday and they are going to have the motherboard effect the replacement. At least… that is what I am being told.

.

My Dear Shoevians, over the past year I have invested; MORE THAN $400 in repair costs, weeks of time waiting, and a tremendous amount of anxiety and frustration. I have been completely unable to write and publish! I have been lost! All the while more and more newsworthy incidents have occurred… and I have been voiceless the entire time!!! I deeply long to write and publish articles about; the debacle that is the Trump campaign, the deep division growing in the Republican Party and the violence! I am just dying to write about the; bigotry, racism, intolerance, xenophobia, hatred, and sexism that has been the hallmark of Trump’s campaign. This is very difficult for me, very frustrating and extremely upsetting.

.

If they can/do replace my motherboard, and my computer works, I will work to write and publish as often as possible. I genuinely long to write about; this election, the Trump candidacy, the tenure of narrative coming from the Republican candidates and contrast that withDemocrat nomination process. I can remember sitting, with my father, and watching the ‘Kennedy/Nixon’ Presidential debate. (The very first one with the sweaty Nixon) As well, I remember a great deal about all the Presidential elections since. My Dear Shoevians, I have never EVER witnessed a more; divisive, hurtful, negative and superficial nomination process (by either party) in my entire life. And, I am missing out on writing about this historic election… because after spending $400 on repairs… my computer still does not work.

.

There you have it, My Dear Shoevians. The why I was unable to keep my previous promise to you. The how I hope to, now, meet that challenge. And the when it might happen. Oh, how I wish I was of the means to just forget the notebook computer I have used for writing and publishing these past five years. How I wish that I had the means to just buy a new computer and all the software that I need/use very single time I write and publish. I could never put into words… the feeling I get when I hit the ‘Publish’ button, and then go and view the article I have written and published at the four blog locations.

.

The pride and joy I feel as I promote the articles I have written and published on; Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Pintrest. For you see, My Dear Shoevians, that right now in my life there are not a lot of times that I do feel pride and joy. That I can have these feelings and bring entertainment and information to all of you, My Dear Shoevians? Well, that is what has given me the desire to live that has empowered me through my diseases and maladies.

.

Finally, I would like to take a moment to say “Thank you!” again to all of you from dropping by… and for many of you… for keeping coming by and visiting throughout the many months I have been absent. I promise you, I genuinely want to return. I sincerely have a ton of ideas and thoughts, insights and opinions, entertainment and information to share with all of you, My Dear Shoevians. I will keep you informed, to the best of my ability. Hopefully, soon, I will be writing you to tell you my computer is either fixed or replaced and that I will be working to achieve my previous publishing schedule. Until then, you can find me on Facebook… look me up and send me a friend request.

.

Adieu!

.

Thank you!

Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to The Other Shoe. It has been some time since my last post, but I am back and I am ready to write. However, first things first!

.

The people who have made the repair of my ‘Writing Computer’ possible, well are just too numerous to name here today. Thousands responded with emails and messages of; support, kindness, understanding and caring. These voices reached out and gave me strength. Yet, out of themasses a handful stood out and lent a helping hand. I would be gravely remiss if I did not give them a mention here, today.

.

The following men have reached outside their own lives, and through acts of generosity bridged the miles between us and touched the life of another human being in a way that will never be forgotten.

.

Ian Cottier
Ian Cottier

(Ian Cottier)

.

Ian Cottier – I met Ian through Facebook, and my life has been graced by his friendship. When I wrote of my problems with my computer, Ian did not hesitate to dig deep and bridge the ocean between us with this generosity. “Thank you very much, Ian!”

.

William Booth
William Booth

(Kinky Friedman & William Booth on the right)

.

William Booth – Bill and I meet though mutual friends, and our mutual love of the Great State of Texas. Bill has returned to Texas, I have stayed here in California. Though thousands of miles separate us physically, our love of ‘good governance’, and a shared dream of a better and more prosperous America (for all) bridge the physical world that separates us. When Bill learned of myneed for assistance getting my writing computer repaired. Bill did not hesitate to reach out and help.“Thank you, Bill!”

.

Jack Wright
Jack Wright

(Jack Wright)

.

Jack Wright – Of all the friends I have listed here, Jack and I have just met. We are both friends of William, and when we found ourselves standing together against intransigence and intolerance a friendship was forged. I was very much surprised by Jack’s generosity, for we have only known each other a short time. It just goes to show you, that a friend that reaches out, when you are in need, is a friend in deed! “Thank you, Jack!”

.

Jason Kleppinger
Jason Kleppinger

(Jason Kleppinger)

.

Jason Kleppinger – Though last in mentions, here today, Jason has been my friend the longest. I meet Jason back in the late 90’s. As with all the friends I have shared here, today. I met Jason via the internet. Funny that all the friends and benefactors, mentioned here today, I have never met any of them in person! Jason reached out all the way from Iowa, just to lend me a helping hand. “Thank you, Jason!”

.

I must admit that I am deeply moved by the generosity of the men mentioned here, today. Thoughnone of them, have I met in person, they have not… did not hesitate to help when they say a friend in need. Here with all of you here at my side, My Dear Shoevians, I would like to express to them my most deep and heartfelt… … … “THANK YOU!”

.

With every word that I write, from here on out, and every article that I publish. I want them to knowthat I think of their generosity. For, with out which, my voice would be silenced. Because of their kindness, support and caring I am able to continue my work. Continue; writing, sharing and publishing here at The Other Shoe.

.

Finally, I would like to express my thanks to the Owner and workers at H.B. Computers. Amir, the owner, gave me a great deal on the repairs that my computer needed. The work they did returned to me my writing computer in great working order. In the coming week I will be preparing and posting advertisements for H.B. Computers that will appear along the sidebar of each and every one of my four blog locations. “Thank you EVERYONE at H.B. Computers!”

.

Well, that about wraps it up, for today. My Dear Shoevians, the past two days have been terriblydemanding, of me physically. I have; spent hours out in 94+ degree heat, helped with shopping at several different stores, and assisted with nine loads of laundry.

.

This has left me sore… well all over my hands… my neck… my back, and more. I simply must rest, and recuperate, before I begin my writing and publishing in earnest. I will return, in just a matter of days, with publications of; ‘The Mars Report’, ‘Lost in Space’, ‘Election 2016’, ‘American Governance – What We Need Today!’, and ‘A Week in Review’!

.

Adieu!

.

Thank you!

                                                          Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to The Other Shoe. First, I would like to extend my heartfelt “THANKS!” to Jason Kleppinger for his donation of $25.00 to my ‘Computer Repair Fund’. This is my very first donation and I am hoping that, with the publication of this article, I might reach more of you, My Dear Shoevians, and convince you that my need is great and genuine. In this second article, regarding the death of my writing computer, I am including images of the; desktop, Device Manager, Device Tab and others as evidence that (in fact) my laptop (writing) computer is damaged and does need repair.

.

Since I first wrote of this problem I have been able to get two (over the phone) estimates for the cost of the repair. The estimates (so far) range from $225.00 to $460.00. Of course, I am going to take the computer to the repair company that offers to do the work for the lowest estimate. So far, that is $2250.00, but that is “sight unseen” and could go up (slightly) more if there is more wrong with the laptop. My Dear Shoevians, I have run several diagnostic programs on this laptop and have come to the conclusion that only one problem exists. The ‘Display Adapter’ is not working. I have: rebooted, removed the battery and let computer stand (without power) for two hours then rebooted, booted up without the ‘Repeater-Extension’ module connected, and ‘Uninstalled/Reinstalled’ the display adapter twice. All to no avail. The image below shows the ‘Device Manager’ with the error indicated with the ‘Display Adapter’.

.

In order to see the image better, just click on the image and it will take you to a full screen display of the image, this is true for all the image in this article and all images on my blog(s). You can clearly see the Yellow Triangle with the black apostrophe indicating that the problem device is the ‘Display Adapter’. This would be a very small problem with a desktop computer. Just as easy as buying a new (or used on eBay) Graphics card and installing said card into the computer. However, this is a laptop computer and that means that the ‘Display Adapter’ is built into the motherboard. That means, in order to fix the problem, the motherboard must be replaced.

.

The image, above, shows the ‘Display Adapter’ tab in the ‘Device Manager’ showing that there is a problem with that device and Windows has not/will not start the device until the problem is resolved. As I have indicated I have gone through any/all trouble shooting for this problem I could find; one the Windows web site, Tom’s Hardware web site, and the nVidia web site, too. I am very much certain that the replacement of the motherboard will resolve the problem I am having, and return to me my writing laptop computer.

.

My Dear Shoevians, I deeply apologize for this… intrusion into your life… asking for help/assistance is not something that I enjoy or relish. Matter of fact, it really rubs me the wrong way and I work very hard to avoid these situations. However, this has become an unavoidable reality in my life. Again, I deeply apologize for writing and asking for your financial assistance in this matter.

Again, ‘THANK YOU JASON!!!” for your generous contribution of $25.00. With ONLY F I V E more contributions of $50 or more I will have the funds I so desperately need to pay for this much needed repair. I have a real and deep bound with this machine. Over the past seven years I have written; over 650 articles, TWO questions USED BY Bob Schieffer on ‘Face the Nation’ (to question Sen. Mitch McConnell and Speaker Rep. John Boehner), 200+ pages of ‘The Horror in Smithville’, 100+ pages of ‘The Adventures of Princess Nadia – The Healing Light’, newsletters, business cards, fliers and a brochure design (all for Hanning Web Wurx and The Other Shoe).

With your contribution(s) (via PayPal) just use enzomatrix@earthlink.net and Daniel Hanning. The repair company HB Computers will be the company making the repairs on my HP DV9500t CTO laptop computer. This laptop computer, when new, cost me $2,000.00 and it still works incredibly well (aside from the display adapter not working), and with this repair I am certain that it will serve me another five years and another 500+ articles plus two more books in the ‘The Horror in Smithville’ series and two more books in the ‘The Adventures of Princess Nadia’ series.

.
My Dear Shoevians,
I do hope that you consider the information I have shared, look at the desktop and device manager images, and PLEASE consider assisting me in this venture of repairing my (desperately needed) writing computer. I have priced new laptop computers and found that a laptop (17.3′ screen, Geforce Video Card, three USB ports, extender port [an HP QuickDock 2.0 Docking Station – which I OWN] and a full sized keyboard with number keypad) would cost me between $2,000.00 and $3,000.00. This, investment, of $225 – $350 is a fraction of that amount and well spent.

.

Again, please go to PayPal to make your donation to Daniel Hanning enzomatrix@earthlink.net to help me get up and writing and publishing again… soon. Thank you for your time and effort… THANK YOU for your consideration and kindness… THANK YOU for EVERYTHING you do to HELP!

.

As always, if you ‘Like’ and ‘Share’ this article, via your social media outlets, it will greatly increase the chances I meet my goal and obtain my working writing laptop… Again!

.

P.S. Dear Family, Friends, Facebook Friends, and Followers of The Other Shoe​;
BELOW is a scan of the receipt for my $50 payment for Diagnosis &/or Deposit towards REPAIR of my ‘Writing Computer’ with HB Computers in Huntington Beach.
.
I am still quite berfet of the FUNDS I NEED to PAY for said repairs… … but I just HAD to FIND OUT; IF it can be repaired, HOW MUCH it would COST to Repair, and WHAT is WRONG with this (eight year old) writing computer. My Dearest Family, Friends and Followers… Over the past FIVE YEARS I have written and PUBLISHED more than 650 articles at my FOUR blog locations. ALL these articles (along with one NOVEL 75% DONE and ANOTHER Novel 25% DONE)… I REALLY DO N E E D this computer to write and publish. Without this machine… my voice WILL fall SILENT.
.
ANY amount of help WILL H E L P! I AM sorry to have to ask for help… I am just unable to work… and this month I am BACK to my Oncologist…
.
PLEASE take a moment… and PLEASE consider lending me a HAND?
.
Thank you,
Danny Hanning​

.

.

P.P.S – The Owner of H.B Computers told me he WILL “accept payments from ANYONE that calls and offers to HELP with the cost of  REPAIRS. He ACCEPTS ALL major credit cards and WILL apply ANY/ALL monies towards the REPAIR COST(S). If you want to HELP.. but not to send ME money? The Phone Number is right here.. Call and ASK FOR AMIR!

                Welcome back My Dear Shoevians to The Other Shoe. My Dear Shoevians for the past several weeks I have struggled with increased constant pain. I have tried, very hard, to overcome this pain and keep to a regular writing and publishing schedule. My reasons for this is two-fold. First, I long to write… to publish… to create! Without my ability to work a job, to clock in and work a job… a career that I love… my writing is my solace. Second, My Dear Shoevians, is YOU! For the past four years I have written an published for you! I do not do it for money… which, due to my current situation… I regret deeply. I do not put ads on my blogs. I do not make money from your; reading, learning, entertainment.

.

Now, due to an unforeseen circumstance, I am without my computer. This computer has; my Word program, my Voice-to-Text (Dragon Speaking) program, my Animation program, my Publishing program, ALL of my 650+ articles and all of my passwords saved in memory. I have owned this laptop (HP DV 9500t CTO) computer since Christmas 2007. ALL of my best writing was done on this laptop computer. I know how it works, I know how to publish quickly and easily on this computer. Now, due to a mistake I made while panicking, the video card (built into the motherboard) is fried!

.

This laptop computer cost me (roughly) $2,000.00 eight years ago (this Christmas). Today, it will cost me about $400 to have it repaired. Another 17.5′ laptop computer; of equal power and ability, with NEW licensing for all the writing/editing/publishing/animation programs will cost me much more than having it repaired. You see, My Dear Shoevians, it is not just the cost of another laptop replacement. I can find that, at WalMart refurbished/clearance for $500-$600. However, then I have to purchase another; Word Processing program (WORD preferably… I know how to use Word… like, in my sleep), Speech-to-text program, Publisher program (for newsletters, fliers, business cards, and everything else I use and need), animation program (I am looking to replace/upgrade the ‘Sunday Funnies’ series with MY animations), Iolo System Mechanic Professional, Anti-Virus program, and ALL of the other programs I have and USE on this laptop computer.

.

All told, I would have to spend another $500-$600 on programs just to get another new laptop up to the quality and usability of my current laptop. Over the past ten days I have given this a great deal of thought, consideration and soul-searching. This is the best and cheapest course of action. Now, for the kicker!

.

My Dear Shoevians, I am in no financial position to purchase; a new laptop and all the software I need to produce and publish at the professional level I have for the past five years. My Dear Shoevians, it has been years since I have asked for any assistance. Any financial support whatsoever, and I am proud of that fact. I do not like/enjoy/relish asking anyone for any kind of help. It goes against my upbringing, against my belief(s)… and it hurts to ask… and hurts even MORE when I fail to garner much needed support.

However, without any assistance I will be unable to; write, publish, inform, entertain and share my views. This is, already, causing me grief and frustration. If you are a Facebook friend, you will have (likely) seen evidence of this in my posts. My writing and publishing is my creative outlet. It gives me center, it distracts me from my constant and growing levels of pain. Without it, I feel more pain and I sleep less and my sleep is fitful. I am in shambles. I am beside myself. I am without my center… without my creative outlet… without my reason for living.

I know that appears extreme… and I do not want to frighten anyone. I am not in a ‘dark place’ and not having hurtful thoughts. That is a reality, but it is getting more and more difficult to make it through each day. My Dear Shoevians, my need is genuine. This is not some pseudo-cry-for-help, I genuinely need financial assistance to get my writing/publishing laptop computer back up and running. I would be willing to sign an agreement to repay any funds! I could manage to pay back $50 a month, and not loose too much food… or medications.

My Dear Shoevians, I deeply apologize for coming to you and asking for help. I am willing to provide evidence that the computer is being repaired. An invoice for the repairs, pictures of the ‘Device Manager’ showing that the video adapter is not working. Screenshots of the desktop with the visual artifacts that prove it is the video card. I am willing to provide any/all evidence that all monies will go to the repair of the laptop and to NOTHING ELSE!

This computer has been at my side since Christmas 2007! EVERYTHING I have written for The Other Shoe(s) has been written on THIS computer! I have a creative-bond with this computer. Right now I am writing this article on a borrowed computer without Word or any word processor. I downloaded and installed “Open Office’ to create this article. I do not think I will/would be able to ‘barrow’ this computer often…

.

My Dear Shoevians, my back is against the wall! I am fearful of being without… it, and without my creative outlet.

.

PLEASE! My Dear Shoevians, PLEASE consider assisting me? I have TRIED and TRIED and TRIED to find a way other than what I ask here today!

.

Want to know how desperate I am? I am going to publish my PHONE NUMBER and EMAIL so that someone can help! It SACRES ME GREATLY to do so… but I just cannot think of a way to get the help I need… in a timely fashion.. without sharing this contact information. I am using PayPal to get donations, just use my email to donate enzomatrix@earthlink.net  ONCE I have obtained the help… I will remove this information HOPING that I have not invited disaster… already. PLEASE My Dear Shoevians… reach out and HELP? (714) 931-2436. enzomatrix@earthlink.net at PayPal for donations. THANK YOU!

.

PLEASE HELP ME?

.

Thank you!
