"Freedom" from Sony - at last

George Michael is joining Island for a one-off single Christmas, after fulfilling his contract with Sony.

The single, release as a download on December 13 and physically the day after, is a new version of the singer’s December Song., which he offered as a free download to fans last year.

This will be the first Christmas single Michael has made available for commercial release since Wham’s Last Christmas.

Sony is to release a live George Michael DVD in December and this fulfils his obligations for the major, according to a spokesperson for the singer.

A George Fix

Now I'm A Very Happy Bunny
George Backstage At A Spandau Concert-
please say "Hi" to Martin for me George.
Just to see a new picture of The Greek God puts a smile on my face. I can't explain the warm buzzing feeling that I get when I see him again. To see his face on a computer screen or a mobile phone it's enough to send my hormones into overdrive. Thank KT for sending this to me....My lovely Obsession helps to make me whole. I think that someone who doesn't get passionate about something must have a dull empty life. George Your my Obsession, I'm passionate about you, you make my life complete.
Love is love is nothing without you
Love is Love is everything you do.

In the absence of security
Made my way into the night
Stupid cupid keeps on calling me
But I see nothing in his eyes
I miss my baby, oh yeah
I miss my baby tonight
So why don't we make a little room
In my BMW babe
Searchin' for some peace of mind
Hey, I'll help you find it
I do believe that we are practicing the same religion

Still On My Soap Box!!!

Felix and Charlie

Theo and Tia
I have recently been approached by a Dog Club member regarding the "charges" made by rescue centres for adopting a pet. As a staff member at Freshfields Animal Rescue and a long standing member of the Nantlle Vale Dog Club I felt it was therefore my place to put pen to paper and explain a little about how rescue works.
All too often people turn up at the centre and expect to be able to adopt a pet without paying a donation. We are regularly told "We want to give a pet home, we don't want to pay for it!" If only it were that simple...
If I use for example the costs to the charity of one 12 months old female cat who's owner decided he "no longer wanted her." The cat stayed with us for 3 months before she was lucky enough to be adopted. (We'll call her Tilly)
On arrival at Freshfields Tilly was treated with Advocate, this is the product we customarily use to treat cats and dogs for fleas, lice, ticks and worms. One week later, Tilly along with the other new arrivals was taken to the vets to be spayed. During her 3 months with us luckily, as is not always the case, Tilly needed no further veterinary treatment but 6 weeks later had her second dose of advocate. After 3 months at the centre Tilly was lucky to find a home, she was micro chipped for identification and given another advocate treatment before leaving for her new home. Some of the costs for one female cat re-homed after spending 3 months at the sanctuary are as follows:-
Neutering - £40.00
Microchip - £10.00
Advocate -3 @ £5.20 = £15.60
Total = £65.60
At the sanctuary the animals are fed on a diet similar to what we believe they would be fed on in a pet home. For cats we use Whiskas, Felix, Kitekat and similar high quality tinned foods along with dry biscuit. The bedding is regularly changed and washed on site. To prevent the spread of infection we use the highest quality disinfectant, costing around £70 for 5 liters, all these products need paying for before you think of electricity, water rates and staff wages. (In a perfect world we would all do it for free - sadly it's not a perfect world)
As a small struggling sanctuary we have to ask a minimum donation of £50 to cover some of the costs incurred. But as you can now hopefully see this in no way comes close to covering the costs on the charity of caring for one cat for a three month period, and sadly many stay a lot longer before finding their "forever home." At present we have around 50 adults cats waiting to be adopted, around 50 ferals and 25 kittens who all need feeding twice daily and clean litter trays daily.(...and cat litter is expensive!)
We always have dogs available for adoption at Freshfields, most are based in foster homes in the area. As you can imagine the costs on the charity for caring for a medium size dog over the same time period is at least three times the cost of caring for a cat. Our book-keeper Veronica (Who most of you know as she is a club member) informs me that the average monthly vet bill is over £1,000!
I hope this is pretty self explanatory, simply if people are not willing to pay a minimum donation for a neutered, microchipped pet then where are we suppose to get the money from to help the next one and the one after that……? Unlike a Larger, well known charity our door is always open to take in the needy, and we never put a health animal to sleep. I only wish we had a small percentage of their funding so we could so much more.
May I take this opportunity to thank club members Tony and Beryl for their kind donation of dog food in the Summer and also a big thank you to everyone who supported our 1st Open day. Without the support of local people who give their time to help, foster dogs and give donations of food and money the sanctuary would indeed be struggling. And One last thank you, if I may, to Ann for recently adopting 2 of our middle aged cats, without the selfless attitude of people like yourself these beautiful adults would be passed by for the "younger models." This is so sad, when as you know too well Ann, these beautiful mature cats have so much more love to give in their lives.

That's Just Made My Day

'Live in London' DVD
To be released on 7th December 2009

George Michael is to release 'Live in London' a special 23 song full concert DVD on the 7th December 2009 through Sony Music Entertainment. This is the first live DVD of George's career. Recorded and filmed at The Final Two concerts in London's Earls Court arena on the 24th and 25th August 2008 these highly anticipated shows marked the end of George Michael's triumphant 25 Live Tour and were the last chance to catch George performing on a stage of this magnitude.

'Live In London' features tracks from George's historic career including 'Careless Whisper,' 'Freedom,' 'Faith,' 'Everything She Wants' and 'Amazing.' A special behind the scenes bonus documentary, 'I'd Know him a Mile Off,' offers a glimpse behind the magic of these sold out shows even shadowing the man himself before and after his performances on stage. 'Live in London' will be available worldwide in two formats, double disc DVD and a single Blu-Ray disc.

When George first announced his 25 Live Tour tickets were snapped up in minutes. The critically acclaimed tour saw George perform in front of over 2 million people worldwide with a 49 date 25 Live Arena Tour and a 30 date 25 Live Stadium Tour. In Summer 2008 Michael took his 25 Live Tour to arenas across North America touring North America for the first time in 20 years. In London alone, 350,000 people collectively watched him performing in Earls Court, Wembley Arena, The Roundhouse and the newly renovated Wembley Stadium, where he made musical history as the first artist to perform at the momentous venue in June 2007.

His exceptional performances in the UK, Europe and North America received unprecedented praise from both critics and fans across the globe.

"George proved he is simply one of the best vocalists this country has ever produced." The Sun

"King George still reigns supreme" Mail on Sunday

"a masterclass in pop genius" The Observer

"A tremendous singer, a complete showman. All George Michael needs is a mic, his songs, and the magic on stage is instaneous" La Parisien

"As he closed with the still stirring 'Freedom', his hands raised high, testifying like an evangelist for self determination. Then he was on his knees, giving the 'I'm not worthy' bow several times towards his fans. His crowds roared back, still dancing to the music, suggesting that maybe he was." Rolling Stone "
