    Like all artists, their work triples in value when people think them dead. Hopefully just testing us.

    Yes.........I've been getting offers for Ian's Corner from a lot of publishers now that he's gone missing. This stuff here is like gold now that we can't get any more of it.

    On a serious note, I haven't been able to find out anything.
    The email address I have isn't being answered, and I can't find anybody on the East Coast with that name. How can that even be?

    Maybe the Doctor gave him some new medications and was told that he could not drink alcohol with them, Then when he quit drinking it killed him.

    I have seen that happen to many people.

    In any case, he will be missed.

    Ian used to go into the corner pub every Sunday and order three glasses of stout. When the owner asked him why, he said one was for his brother Bob, one was for his brother Ken, and the other was his. He said, "They are in other parts of the country, but we always sit down at the same time every week and drink together". One Sunday Ian came in and ordered two ales. The proprietor asked which one of the brothers had died? Ian replied, "Neither, I have stopped drinking, so I only need theirs."

    Now, this will either bring Ian out of hiberation, because he will have LOTS to say about this, because he will hate this, LOL, or it will make him laugh, if he is recuperating.
    I got a question Ian, what do you think of this idea?

    Probably all a sham of nice sorts, and he found a new playground. But this qualifies the dead 'artist' anomaly.

    I don't think, he would just disappear I think, he got sick. If he is reading these I want him to know, many people would help, I would help. Believe it or not, I got connections to those in medical need. It is a love hate relationship, but, got connections to help those in need, and I offer the help, if you got your ears on Ian.

    Leave it up to the doctors, They will kill you every time.

    Send Flowers, when all is said and done.

    I think you are correct Cookie, nothing that you or I can do to bring him back.

    He will be missed...

    I learned to be my own advocate way back in 98 when they misadiagnosed me with the wrong lymphoma and put me on drugs for 18 months, which didn't work, wouldn't work, and caused damage to my heart & lungs. But, I am a fighter. I make no apology for seeking a lawyer and when, the lawyer told me, I had to prove long-term results and when I asked, what that meant, and he said, I had to die, well... I got mad. I learned to be my own advocate and hence, I do it for others. That is why I say, it is a love hate relationship, I love what the medical field can do, and hate it when they screw up and won't be accountable for their own mistakes, like everyone else has to be in this world in any other occupation.


    I lost so many people due to death, I don't even want to get close to anyone anymore.

    I hope he pops back in. So, I can yell at him.

    Idon't care what you guys all say here. Although I never wished him any harm, or illness, I miss him no more than when I flush Mr. Hankey down.

    He never did like automobiles.

    Now he will complain about all the traffic and how hard his bike is to petal.
