Thank you Peter and Michael. I did not think about costs involved but will now. I stopped posting photos and new topics about a year ago.

I thought no posting would possibly convey no interest. I occasionally post on the Let Us Remember topic.

I love the beautiful photo of Bryan. What a treasure!

Thanks again
Johnny

Hello everyone,

Jacques is moving forward with migrating the forum to the British Library archives. He expects to have a timeline soon and I will share that with you as soon as he has a firm date.

He is also creating a new Doris Day Facebook Group in Bryan's honor and he asked me to collect the names and contact info of forum members who are interested in joining the new group. I think the best and most secure way to do that is for you to email me if you are interested in becoming a member. I have agreed to serve as an administrator on the new page and will be assisting Jacques with setting it up.

Please email me at [email protected] if you are interested.

Thanks,
Michael

I'm so sad by this news! He was such a treasure and a wonderful friend since I was thirteen years old. I cherish all the Doris memories we all had with him. He was dedicated and always welcoming to us all. His knowledge and love for our cherished Doris as well as our thoughts was unparalleled. He will be very missed!!
It's a wonderful day for Doris Day <3

Thank you, Dominque.

The forum isn't the same anymore without Bryan's chipper personality and creativity.

I reached out to Jacques today to see if there has been any progress with the forum migration. Will let everyone know as soon as I hear back.

LATEST UPDATE from Jacques re: the Forum Migration -

He is in a dispute with the hosting platform over the documentation he submitted to transfer the ownership to him. At the present time, he isn't sure when that will be resolved and the migration cannot occur until he has obtained legal ownership. I'll keep everyone posted in the hope that this will be resolved soon.

Hello everyone,

I haven't posted in a long time because I ran into difficulty with resetting my password after receiving a warning message about a data leak associated with this site. Today, I logged on with my old password because the reset function did not work and the system logged me on with my old password.

The hosting platform is still refusing to grant Jacques permission to migrate the forum to The British Library. He hasn't given up but it's proven to be quite difficult and stressful for him. So, there really is no progress to report at this time, unfortunately.

I hope everyone is healthy and on your way to being vaccinated in the very near future.

Thank you Michael for the update. I keep checking the forum weekly .

We must remain hopeful that the inspiring and important Doris Day Forum will continue. I wish more DD fans would continue to post on Doris' music and films. I certainly miss their commentaries.

Spring is only one month away and the buds are growing on the trees reminding us of new beginnings . 🌱🦋 I hope this year 2021 soon brings everyone good health and life saving vaccinations.

It is great to hear from you Michael. Take good care.
Johnny
