Adventure and discovery was the enticement that drew Lee Elders to this wild lawless land; the supernatural world of the Shuara that live in a mystical realm of ayahuasca-induced visions where the ethereal world is encased within our third dimensional reality. Along the way he discovered his true self - his Kakarma. However incredible some of the incidents may seem this is a true story.

Thanks! They did a re-make of Parent Trap? Gee, I sure have been out of it. Loved that movie. Who played it first Patty Duke or was it the English girl, can't remember her name right now....boy I used to know all this stuff. I'm getting so old! HA. It's kind of nice though not being a part of all that anymore, you know?

Angry This thread is terrible

I too heard on the radio that shirley was willing to work around lohan's rehab. that being said so what if she will do this for her? everyone EVERYONE deserves and oppurtunity to get better and have a second chance. How can any of us sit in judgement over another life without "walking a mile in their shoes"? the words on these posts are truely shameful and not representative of self proclaimed "enlightened beings".

Christina i hope that you never have to face the negativity that you are giving off.

This poor girl needs to prove she wants to get well. Maybe it would humble her some and give her time for reflection if she actually had to EARN back the respect of her community instead of having a job waiting for her (I'm pretty sure she doesn't need the money by the way) and people willing to work around her behavior. Let her prove herself first. She has had second, third, fourth, (need I go on?) chances. I and many people like me feel that those in the movie industry who keep hiring these out of control individuals are enablers.

In the real world this girl would either be on the streets or straightened out. I opt for staightened out because most employers do not allow unlimited "sick" days. If a prospective employer were to do a background check on her today, she would not be hired. She would be a risk, and believe me, she would truly be motivated to straighten out her life so she could get a job.

In my state, rehab is free for the indigent. I know, because I picked up a friend the other day. There were no massages, passes out, or gourmet food. Visitation was limited. But the program focused on rehabilitation. Definately not where someone would go unless they really wanted help.

Please make your movie and get it out as soon as possible. You don't need a headlining trainwreck to promote it; that seems so beneath you. Unfortunately, people no longer watch her movies and see her character. They see "that poor spoiled kid", and it is distracting. Please hire someone who will not be a distraction from what sounds like a delightful plot line.

I agree and suport saw you on tzm.com

Cool On Lindsay Lohan

I feel her going right back to work is what Miss Lohan should do whether or not there is a money issue is not important - i understand other things may need to be looked at - but it is important to keep busy...and that is what she needs to do...

There is no reason for Ms.Lohan not to be able to work as well as be in rehab. why can't the 2 coincide?

I have never been on illegal drugs, or an alcoholic though I have other problems, and I think being idle is a big problem...

There is no reason also for anyone in todays world to be "homeless," as Peter keeps telling me being in a homeless shelter isn't being homeless, being in a residence isn't being homeless...

I am in an Apartment Program, furniture is provided, and my rent is 30% of my income - but if the program for some reason would be forced to stop operating I don't know what I would do, or what all my peers would do - but being in the system for so many years and even though I keep making efforts to be totally independent and failing to do so I consider myself lucky to have these wonderful supports that I have otherwise I never would have gone as far as I have - it isn't much by most standards of many of the people who are members of this site - but I am greatful - I just wish I could work my way out and into the so called 'real' world.

Working does help - and maybe Ms. Lohan has been getting many chances to work through her personal issues - but that is what is done in the programs I have been involved with also - it isn't unusual and I feel if people are willing to bend a bit than Lohan should 'go for it.'

Thank-you for reading this post.


PS I think Shirley is being quite graceful and very supportive and understanding about Ms. Lohans problem and I feel Shirley that these are fantastic qualities that you possess. With all the horrible things going on in the world it is great to read that you are willing to bend a bit.
