I lied. Here I am again, and wanted to mention that I just sent a Private msg to you. At first I knew that you'd get email notification, but seeing as you're prolly using her account, it makes sense that you may not have access to her email.

So check your messages. I don't bite. (Much anyway.) :-)


I did, and I replied but now your origial message has gone from my inbox. I got a message from Angela earlier that disappeared before I could reply.

This place is REALLY CONFUCING for a not very bright canuck.

oh yeah and I changed the email to my account. At least i fugured out how to do that.

Thanks Allie. You gave me a chuckle in spite of my sadness.

I guess Kenzie (Shannon) would rather have it that way. :-)


I think mom would rather go with a smile than a tear. And I have to remind myself that this is a shock for everyone here but for me mom has been gone for nearly a month and I've know that she was going to go since November so we're all adapting I guess is the best way of puttnig it.

And I am sorry to everyone for taking so long in posting this but it took awhile to get enough points to make a post and to try and find a way of syaing it all.

Can you please post a link to her obituary, if there is one?


I don't know if there is one. Someone else asked as well. I am staying with a couple of other people who are members her and I will ask when one of them comes home.

Hi everyone.

Thank you so much for your kind words. I think mom would have been overwhelmed by it all. I am not really emotionly connected here but still feel a little woozy by teh response.

Just a few notifications:

to Seti-Forums:
Mom talked about her time as a moderator here. She called it her 'best of times, worst of times'. I had to google it and I haven't read Dicknes but I think I understand the feeling.

to Dan
I don't understand poetry, but mom did and she loved yours.

To Julie (and Uli and Angela) Mom referred to you three as her “sisters-in-arms.” You could hear the quotation marks when she said it.

To Bernie Vine:
I took that picture. Lovin' it. !!!

To Chris S.
She talked about you a lot and i think she was a little bit in love with you.

To Dune Finkleberry
Oh, she warned me about you! HaHa. I don't think that she was in love with you but she had a really big crush on you. I think if she had the chance shed have done some pretty nasty things with you.

To Chandorchasma
Your local cancer society seems best.


Some stuff about mom because people have been asking:

Born June 21, 1978 in Campbellton New Brunswick Canada.

Married once to a psycholigical abusive ass. Divorced him in 2004 and moved to Vancovuer. But he was a stalker guy so she changed her name, etc. Shannon was her real name. Mackenzie was her stage name.

She was in a car accident in 2005 that made even the simplist of things hard for her. She was always uncomfortable about her looks because of it no matter how much everyone said the scars were gone. I guess they were mostly inside.

She was a musician, a graduate of the Royal Ontario Conservatory and on her way to a career as a concernt guitarist before the husband and accident got in the way. In the last couple years she regained her confidence in ,music and did a lot of recording work for local artists. She even had been doing some composing of her own and I'll post some of that stuff if I can figure out how to post mp3 files here.

She loved boats and everything about them.

I wasn't actually her daughter but her niece. I came to live with her a couple years ago because of some issues my bioloigical units were having and she eventually adoped me. I never called her 'mom' just 'Sha' like everyone else did but I wish I had called her mom because I think she would have liked that.

Hi everyone

This is going to be hard to write and I'm not sure where to start.

My mom's name was Shannon but everybody here knew her as Mackenzie or Kenzie. I have to tell you that my mom died on January 12. She had got stomache cancer in January last year. At first the treatments seemed to go good but then in June it was in her pancreas and then it was in her liver. In November it was in her brain and then she and the doctor decided not to do any more treatment and she went into palative care on December 2.

She talked a lot about this place and she had asked me to start up her account and contact you and tell you what happened. It took me awhile to figure out how to make the account here work. Sorry for taking so long.

Not sure what else to say but I'll check the account every day for the next while and try to answer any questions u might have.

Posted 441 days ago by Profile Allie in Vancouver
When I was a kid I remember reading a novel wherein one of the sub-plots involved an alien species whose civilization generated so much heat that they were forced to move their planet to the far fringes of their solar system and just using their primary as an anchor to keep their world from drifting off.

Can't remember anything else about the story tho. :/

Voyager is approaching solar system's outer limit


Most astronomers set the outer edge of the solar system at the far edge of the Oort cloud which, by some estimates, is over a light-year out. It will be many, many thousands of years before they exit the solar system.

Just another example of journalistic hyperbole.

sounds like a yet another Fjernhode message. I think I'll ignore the rubbish and you can put that and many other of his personas on ignore so he cant send any more crap to you


LOL. The gaussian obsession is a bit of a give-away . :P

Chris: the ignore function is your friend. :)

Of course Atlantis is real. It is in my daughter's boyfriend's gym bag. Going by the smell, there has to be something ancient and dead in there. :P
