Omaha waits while Nellie Tools Up

Omaha fans are waiting for Omaha material old and new to appear here, but that's going to have to wait.
What I'm waiting for, is for Jim Vance and Jo to give me the keys to the site so that either it can be updated or I can move some material to my site and add links. Due to health reasons, there hasn't been any update on the "Omaha" official site since 2008. So visitors there may not even know that the story was finished, and the full set of Omaha is available from NBM Publications.
When Jim and Jo get better, they'll get back to me, and we'll talk about what to do with the Omaha web presence. As I said before, I do intend to have sketches, pages, and unavailable material up for viewing and eventually, for sale. But there's still a lot of work to do before any of that is possible.
Meantime, the "Cat Dancing with Omaha" yahoo group is still active (although there havent been any posts for a while). Sign up if you're not a member.
In the meantime, the entire Omaha the Cat Dancer Picture Disk is on my site available for listening.

Meanwhile, Nellie and the Drummers, idle for 12 years, are hard at work on their new album, "Backstage Musical."
Between 2004 when I completed two numbers for the new album, and now, I've had to upgrade my computer and all my software. Additionally, the more ambitious project I'm beginning requires better instruments and better equipment, so I invested a little money I didn't previously have, into big band and orchestra instruments and an upgrade for my Digital Audio Workstation. Nellie's voice works just fine the way it is.
Watch the Nellie section of my website for developments, and new tracks as they are finished.

A New Period Begins

Yes, it's pretty much a new period in my life.

With Omaha the Cat Dancer finally finished, I'm retired. Now it's time to start cleaning up the mess online.

This blog has never been kept up, and it's likely that it will be closed down after I make some progress on my new site, at

The Omaha the Cat Dancer Yahoo group has been closed, Mark is finally used up, and I can't do anything with it myself, because of confusion with my Yahoo account. Oh well, it has served its purpose.

Likewise I lost control of this blog when Blogspot switched to Google and i couldn't get logged in here either.

Then all my online files, such as blog images and Nellie and the Drummers music and my Furry Sex Panel video, all got erased when Consolidated Communications (who bought Enventis, who bought Hickorytech my ISP) decided to discontinue offering personal web space two weeks ago.

So I am starting my own website for the first time in 15 years. There I hope to be able to offer my artwork for sale, records and memorabilia, the Nellie and the Drummers music, and just generally be present. But mostly just for fun.

I will be contacting Jim Vance and see if he would like some help in bringing back up to date.
