Xenaverse News - Lake Xena

Received the following from Russell:

  • I was listening to Radio New Zealand last Tuesday on "The Panel" with Jim Mora on "Afternoons with Jim Mora." They brought up a segment about a lake in Auckland New Zealand that used to be called Lake Panorama, but is now going to be called "Lake Xena" in honor of Xena herself. I posted the two addresses from the show interview. I downloaded the interview from the show and put it on my file manager since the archives are only kept for about four days before they get deleted. Here are the two addresses for the show segment. They have a part of the segment where they a bunch of e-mails on the air that Xena and Lucy Lawless fans wrote in and commented on the lake Xena name but I can't find them.  Many thanks to Russell for the news

I received a big thank you from Di Bauden the other day which was really cool and a nice note (the redhead typing madly is me):

Awhile ago, I dubbed August "Webmasters appreciation month". I really appreciate all that you do for us; whether it be for the artists, authors or just your visitors. I don't think enough thanks is sent your way, so please take this graphic and put it on your websites. Lucia made it for me a few years ago. You guys deserve so much credit for all you do. Again, thank you again, so much!


Raising Money for Breast Cancer Research - Dedicated to Michelle De La Rosa

The following is from Amy:

I only met Michelle De La Rosa once. Back in 2002, I went to a Xena event and had no idea what I was doing. She took pity on me and showed me around and helped me figure out what I was doing. She was a godsend to me that weekend. When I heard of her diagnosis, I was sure she would beat it. How could someone so robust and full of life be taken out so early? I was shocked and deeply saddened when I heard of her passing. I'm not sure what kind of cancer Michelle had but it really doesn't matter. Cancers of all types kill far too many people every year. In September, I am walking 60 miles over 3 days to raise money for breast cancer research. I am dedicating this walk to Michelle. If anyone would like to help me in this effort, I still need donations. Visit my website at for information on how you can help.

My thoughts and prayers go out to Michelle's family and friends. She will be missed. The world is a little less joyous without her in it.
