      Hi Guys, and Gals,

      I've added a YouTube BB code that will let us add YouTube videos directly into a post. You can find it in the tool area of the reply window.

      Here's a sample

      Enter the bold text between the brackets and you good to go!!

      you can fully understand the reluctance of the Wayne family to disclose the real burial site.Mike


      A couple of years ago the wife and I flew out to visit our son and his family who then lived in San Diego. While there, I told my son I only wanted to see two things during my visit. One was the Duke's gravesite and the other was President Reagan's library. They were both within easy driving distance of SD.

      One weekend we left early in the morning, drove up to the Reagan library, explored it thoroughly and took a lot of pictures. Then on the way back to SD, we went through Newport and visited the gravesite. His grave wasn't all that hard to find but my wife was flabbergasted and disappointed because instead of a huge and impressive mausoleum housing Big John's remains, there was just one of those flat bronze markers on the ground. As you suggested, I suppose the Wayne family didn't want to call attention to his burial place by erecting a big, imposing structure.

      Thanks for the link etsija

      Its funny I proberably haven't seen that link in its entirety since watching it live in 1979.

      As you say apart from looking thin Duke looked it great shape. You would never have known from his time on stage with the audience that he was so deadly sick.

      The strength and courage it must have taken for him to do that is beyond belief.

      By paying a small subscription fee I have managed eventually to put JW videos onto a disc which can be played separately from entering You Tube Videos.

      They look awful on TV via DVD Player but at least if they are deleted I can still see on computer.



      If you use the FireFox web browser then you can install a free plugin that will let you save Youtube videos to your computer.

      I have hundreds of youtube videos save on my hard drive.

      javimoya.com/blog/youtube_en.php and read up on it.

      etsija,

      Wow, thanks for that link! I've never been a big fan of the Oscars, so didn't watch that the first time around. It is really touching, especially when you realize that he died shortly after that.

      I just posted the video using Kevin's instructions above - coooooool!

      I made mention of this in a different thread, but want to expand on it a little here.

      Somehow, I missed Robbie's post the first time around, so I clicked on it, and there was a pretty funny clip, but when I came back and read the comments following his post, I realized something must be amiss. When I went back to the page again, there was this message across the top of the page -

      This video has been removed due to terms of use violation.

      So what I watched was not Robbie's original link - looks like some trademark lawyer has been trying to discourage the use of John Wayne's image.
      I notice that the same message appears when you go to some of the links in my original post in this thread.

      I guess we better find out how to save the rest of them to our computers, and fast!:smile:

      This is sad, because the enthusiasm generated towards John Wayne and everything he stood for is also being discouraged, whether inadvertently or not. John Wayne is someone who generates a very patriotic, nationalistic feeling, which is not something liberals, in particular liberal lawyers, may appreciate. It would seem that these trademark lawyers are not really working in the best interest of their client, IMO. Every time they curtail any type of JW activity, they are curtailing fan enthusiasm, which of course could ultimately lead to a decline in potential sales. This is a big year, the 100th anniversary of JW's birthday, and finally Wayne Enterprises is on the bandwagon - new website, "new" belt buckle contract with Bohlin's (if you happen to have a spare $2500 lying around), all kinds of sanctioned special items (guns, bullets, knives, and who-knows-what-else). Much of this is going to be so high-priced that the average fan is going to be left in the dust, which could lead to further negated fan enthusiasm. Of course, those who love John Wayne now will still love him, but this could leave a bad taste in folks' mouths. The liberal lawyer would be doing his/her job, curtailing trademark violations, but at the same time, throwing a bucket of cold water on fan enthusiasm. Who is being hurt by these clips being on YouTube? It's not like anybody can watch these things on TV anymore anyway, no royalties are being lost. And if someone was able to come out with a DVD with all these neat clips, we'd probably all buy one - if anything, those clips would whet our appetite for such an item. How frustrating!

      Youtube are not allowed to simply remove clips because John Wayne is in them, this is in complete violation what Youtube is supposed to stand for and it could be result in legal action against 'Youtube' by Wayne Enterprise.

      It is rather pathetic that vile videos against John Wayne are allowed to remain but clips of John Wayne are not. Its time to take a stand with the IMDB being infected by trolls, spurious lies being printed on 'Wikimedia' and Dukes videos being removed by 'YouTube' how much more are we going to take?

      :agent?
      Regards
      Robbie
