A Message from Ken Regarding Scribbles.co

Hello Everyone,

2023 marks 44 years of Scribbles. That’s over 4 decades of entertaining & informative magazines, posts, videos and cool contests (heck, our annual contest Find Frosty has been around since 1981...that's longer than several Scribbles friends have been alive!!). 

We also continue to publish info and free ads about our Scribbles friends businesses and social events. 

There are some costs associated with Scribbles. Obviously I need a computer & internet access and there’s an annual renewal fee for our "Scribbles.co" domain name. Our contests also cost me, both for the prizes and the shipping fees.
 
My laptop runs a bit slow and the fan sometimes makes a noise. Experiences with  previous computers have shown me that at any given time my laptop could die and I would be in dire need of a replacement.

Could you possibly make a donation to be put towards Scribbles computer fund?

Perhaps you have gift cards that you received as a present but don’t plan on using. Maybe you have a business and would like to offer a gift certificate for good or services. Scribbles would be thrilled to receive those gift cards and certificates and other items that may be used as prizes for future contests.

And hey.. if you just happen to have an extra computer laying around, well.... LOL!

If you can help in some way, it would be greatly appreciated. But no worries if you cannot, I totally understand. 

Thank you for your continued support for Scribbles. Rest assured I will keep bringing you Scribbles for as long as possible and there's lots of ideas for future fun. 

E-TRANSFER...

SCRIBBLES ENCORE | A Rare & Tender Moment

ORIGINALLY FEATURED AUG. 2022

SCRIBBLES ENCORE | Play miD | Way

   ENCORE POST         

I'm an avid fan of TV game shows, and after watching a sickening amount of them online lately, I was compelled to come up with a game show for Scribbles. I call it Midway (stylized as "miD | Way") and the concept is fairly easy to pick up on.

What wasn't so easy was putting it all together. That's not a complaint. I chose to do this and I enjoyed the challenges I faced, or more accurately, challenges I created...LOL. There's all the bells and whistles associated with a genuine TV game show. Moving graphics (created using lots of individual images) gaming sound effects, a theme song jingle, a colourful host and lots of (pretend) prizes, Midway has ALL of these.

You're cordially invited to play Midway. You'll need paper and pen or pencil to write down your answers to our 10 questions. We suggest you choose a time when you can devote 12 minutes to playing a fun little game.

Our wild and crazy pal Klyde joins the fun popping up throughout the game and presenting the (pretend) prizes when the game is completed.

We even have a few brief ads "midway" through the show. These are also exclusive to Scribbles and almost as entertaining as the game itself....almost. And as an added cherry on the top... We have a few new bloopers that reveal it often takes me several attempts to properly read the game info I wrote. There's no furniture breaking in this collection of flubs, but there's still a few chuckle-worthy moments to take in.

Without further ado, grab your paper and pen, sit back and play Midway.

PASSAGES |

I
really liked Lisa Marie Presley. I remember buying her albums and playing them over and over. She had such a unique voice and her music helped me through some very rough times.

And rough times were something Lisa Marie knew only too well.

The daughter of The King of Rock & Roll, Lisa Marie was in the public eye since the day she was born. It was a spotlight she often fought hard to keep out of, amidst persistent paparazzi and the tabloids who hounded her constantly.

She shocked the world in 1994 with her short-lived marriage to Michael Jackson, something many considered a publicity stunt, more than a display of their love for one another.

Lisa Marie was once again in the news in 2020 following her son Benjamin Keough's suicide. He was only 27. Lisa Marie fought addiction to cocaine and pain meds, and was very open about her many stays in rehab over the years.

Lisa Marie Presley was involved with many charities including World Vision and children's charities and philanthropies.

Lisa Marie was at the Golden Globes on Tuesday night, to support Austin Butler who won an award for his amazing portrayal of Elvis, and she made an appearance at Graceland on Sunday where fans had gathered to celebrate what would have been Elvis Presley's 88th birthday.

Another shocking celebrity passing, gone far too soon. Rest in peace Lisa Marie. You will be sorely missed.
