Hi Ellen,

I can not wait to see your show this week on television.You always have fun ways.Wow! the model's the eye candy.Well that is all in good but I know I like the person and personality matters mostly.You know what your up against the men want to see a women model also on your show!The singers like Bonnie Rai are great and glad she is back.Would you consider having the Tokens on your show? I had a t-shirt signed by them before they were on the Hall of Fame and it was at Seventh Feathers Casino and they wanted me to e-mail them but I was at the time getting a divorce I had been robbed in my home and that was one thing they took from me and would love it if you would have them on and let them know also. I would love it if you have them sing The Lion Sleeps Tonight one of there famous songs.I love your show so I give you three cheers and a good job at that!!!

Hi Ellen,

I had been getting a colonoscopy and unperoscopy and that was a new experence. I then resently fell in the hall way over my boyfriends foot waiting in the hall for me I did not see his foot out.I hit my face and knee and chest and trying to recover hopine that I will be feeling better but I did not let it get me down and went to a show in Ashland interpeter of patsy Cline and also small band and radio anouncer was very cute like watching as if it was in the late fifty's.I of course went home and rested but it was so much fun just watching and I wanted to sing and did a little holding hands with my boyfriend of two years now going together.I told you that I had been married for over 42 years and divorced an abuser of mental and fisical abuse.I have my home up for sale hoping to sell it has been a challange since I have to take care of fiver acres and do the work on my own having to trim bushes and cut down pasture ect.

I hope that you keep in touch and I had watched the awards and knowing you got one again this is how many so many of them now.Can you sing to?

I have a picture of me and my boyfriend but not sure if it went out right.I hope this does not disqualify for trying to win the trip to Australia. My friend sent me a picture in e-mail of both my boyfriend and I and she put the backgound of us in a tropical Iland is not were we were but we facked it.I hope that I still have this chance.It would be a dream come true I had back pain since 1994 working and stuggling and married to abusive person with one child over 42 years now divorced and selling home and robbed a contractor took off with 20 thousand nothing done but then later on robbed of things came though my bedroom window and came home late that night and noticed things gone I earned and had for years and no help since low funding of sheriff department. I had a t-shirt that was signed by the Token singers and baseball players Hall of Fame gone. On the back and singed by tokens of 60's now was stollen among other things.I wanted to get a hold of the Ttokens singers but it has been so long they would not remember me.I hope that I could win this trip rebuild good memmories.I have low income and semi retired and met my boyfriend two years ago in Feburary since both parents of my boyfiend and I died my mom and then found out his Dad died right after then my brother of cancer he is in remission.We both need this trip I hope that we could win.Thanks for your show! Sorry I wrote you so many times I guess you know by now how much I enjoy seeing you on the show with so much with a fun sprit and caring person.

WOW! I read your message Ellen and loved hearing from you.Oh, so funny you wrote a check out to a 99 cent store well I usually have a savers card for some stores and have to take time to pull them out so I know that at times people hate to wait for me to do that but I also waited for others so it evens out and if we all stick together to help each other is there is a few items and you have more let that person go ahead that has less and would rub off on to others and showing that we do care for one another.Shows we are great americans.Most times it is hurry up and wait or wait and hurry up.Thank the Lord for every day we can as life is a fast road.

You make life interesting and fun that is what we need!

You lifted my sprits when sending me a message thanks for that.

Hi Ellen,

After a snow storm and our outage gone out for a day, I did not get to watch your program i was with out power and water issues extesive repairs.I have had abuse in my marrage for several years and got a divorce that took almost four years and my home up for sale and with economy it made things worse.I only wish I could win to make things better would be for my brothers they have not seen each other for fifteen years and my foster brother did not get to see my mom before she died as he has had cancer him self and is in a foster home. I would love to surprise him and also suprise my boyfriend he has been so good to me and also wishing I could have income help I lost my job because of my back pain and also because of working with ex on a business I did not get much in income and paying an Attorney now to help me with a sale and taking out of my support money when home sells. I need your help. I try to stay strong. I worked also for three years as a caregiver and I can not lift so I was let go.

Hi Ellen, it is so nice to get something sent to me from you and your team.I needed a pick me up since I have had so much hurt though the years I wish my luck would change.To add to all the problems I got robbed went though my bedroom window I was not home but robbers took selective things from me I had for years things that never can replace memories things I worked for and high school pins ect.I also was in an abusive marrage and took me four years to get divorced and expense on that.I lost my mom of cancer and almost my brother at the same time.My moms home was not in the best shape to and bills to take on with my other brother and my dog died.I barley make it small amount of income and managed to work some and going to doctors for the pain in my back I can not do lifting to much and out of work and my doctor has been helping me with my back pain.I have to half my home since divorce it has taken so long to sell.I was supposed to get support money from home when selling and now Attorney fees would be out of that.I had gone to church for years after divorce and now got a nice boyfreind dating for almost two years.He hates to see me having so much to go though still.I was lessoning to a song yesterday and it sounds like me it is a Candy Christmas by Dollie Parton.I just some how try to be strong.I love to dance and I know you do.I try to keep a smile knowing there could be some one who else out there that had a bad day or days.

Hi Ellen,

I hope to win as I have had so many disapointments and gone though so much 43 years of marrage and bitter divorce and mom passed away and my dad early in my life and my brother in a foster home had cancer twice and got robbed in my home a few months ago besides a contractor that ran off with 20 thousand dollars when trying to add on to our home and getting a divorce at that time did not finish and trying to sell with the economy slowing down it has been hard to sell and have to half it with my ex.I worked hard and was caregiving and then had problems with my back in pain so going to the doctors with two blown dics.I finally started to date and take time off and was disapointed at first but then met some one that i have been steady with for one year and eight months.I had to put in SOS in my home to feel safe but I still have problems sleeping at night as some things ment allot to me and are gone.I have insurance but it does not pay for everything lost and memories so those who lost family or lost there home my heart goes out for them. I watched you show and has put a smile on my face and knowing you are a caring person.I wish I could win so I could have peace of mind.I pray my wish would come true.

WOW,I finally get to e-mail Ellen wished I could meet her. I love how she cares about others and gives hope and happiness. What a wonderful person.I have had my share of none stop bad luck but the Lord has given me strength to carry on.I was abused for almost 43 years a sirvior divorced took 4 years now trying to sell my home up for sale and always some repairs to be done so much to list went wrong.I had a theft and also the next month got robbed in my home and went though my bedroom window and got things I had for years even high school. My home need serious repairs and have to sell to half the sale with my ex with economy the price lowered.My brother had cancer almost died and is doing Ok is in a foster home for almost twenty some years, my other brother taking care of my moms home and massive repairs also and I lost my job and have had back problems dic are bad so I can not lift and lost a job and was a caregiver.I have five acres and to much now to take on alone.I met a nice guy and he and I have been dating for almost 2 years he wants to be with me and until I sell my home I have to put my life on hold.A contractor had not finished my addition on my home took me for 20 thousand dollars and found that the contractor also took and scamed others to besides.Now I sell my home with and unfinished additon.I can not afford to repair since I lost so much money already expenses I put into the home and having to lower the price and half the sale with ex.I think to my self I'm blessed at least I have a roof over my head right now and some do not.I love the moves and fun you give on your show and my boyfriend is a fan and loves the show to we both laughed one night watching Ellen. Thank you Ellen if you read this for putting a smile on our faces.
