Elton John Called On To Help UKrainian Boy He Wanted To Adopt

The family of the boy Sir Elton John desperately wanted to adopt from the Ukraine has urged the star to help them as violent unrest continues to rock the country.

The Rocket Man hitmaker and his partner David Furnish tried to adopt little Lev Ageyev in 2009 after meeting him in an orphanage in Makeeva, but his bid was rejected, because same-sex couples are forbidden to adopt in the country.

Five years on, Lev is living in a squalid apartment with his grandmother, Yulia, after she saved him from the orphanage - and now she has called on Sir Elton to help them escape their hellish existence as trouble continues to spread across the country due to ongoing conflicts between the Ukraine and Russia.

She tells Britain's The Sun on Sunday, "I know he (Elton John) felt something for Lev. We're worried what will happen so any help he could give us would be appreciated... I can't take the boys (Lev and his brother) anywhere. We went to the zoo and they were so happy - a rare treat. Money is really tight."

The Rainbow colours' as I saw it and drew the animals later to match the Rainbow of that May 9th, 2014, here is my feeling of how a rainbow looked in the valley lovely as it was interpreted by animals because it co-insides with nature : duck, grizzly bear, crocodile, coyote, and mouse, and the two humans I draw in front of the animals, are a sensed reasoning in my own thoughts that some other creators' humans are in front of the animals, so you can imagine what animals are off the Rainbow. this is my interpretation of the May 9th Rainbow. Lilac is very pretty to smell but he colours of the rainbow so illuminating was really capturing. Lilac comes first, vVvery lilac lilac baby blue that's how it goes, no baby blue comes second the next colour of the rainbow that day. My father and mother lived on 165 Prior RD. a motel, with Pat and George family, all their kids, I dont' thnk Ramey was born yet, and then we moved to 715 Kennedy rd. and later on bought the 1342 Bertram St. house where we all lived and then we went some of us back to work ther and back to the Sundown farm. haying. dad resided on the beachhouse, keeping Geroge Borden, Russell at work, building highways. and farming, and orchard work, we all worked.

the weather is getting hot out. I have a question for Sir Elton John, and I would like him to know this that Tony Bennet is coming to the Okanagan to the Mission Hill Winery for a concert and made another concert so there will be 2. I was wondering if sir Elton john is coming or would like to know so he could come out? He' s probably seen him so much I thought now, yeah he's probably saw him sing right? to me he's one and the only icon of today, at his Hollywood status, I was hoping to go see him when he comes out in August 1st. On the 9th of August is the Easter Seals Regatta in Vancouver where all the sailboats are entering the contest, as I too have gone to Regattas' I thought this is nice to be safely going and watching all these things to see. I was reading magazines in the library. I got this bad cold I can't seem to shake it, so I take in the sunshine. In the park yesterday I didn't like that where young bad men were acting fool drunkiness and beating someone I stopped it, but had to leave so they wouldn't attack back, and I yelled at them to go away from each other so the white shirted drunk wouldn't beat another boy hitting him in the face punching him and then trying to kill him with the skateboard. I could not call valley anyone, cuz I dont' have my phone. so I separated them as best as I could, and walked away from a horrible could have been violent beatings. they walked back into the park, drunks, young people one with a red hat. maybe by today he's grown a beard, and he's hiding from do you think Surrye? long time ago, gosh I an't freightended now, but I was, and went away, we never seen drunkards in the park before, we had Regatta , as a family my dad and I and brothers or sisters, and my own children went out but I never seen such bad violence now. dope addicts and drunkards. It's shameful to me, and embarrassing. I hope you also would know sir Elton JOHN that Englebert Humperdink is coming on the June 14th, to Penticton, I saw this morning the Bald Eagle captured on photograph front page news, awesome that is! The Bay area of a raccoon as we too this area of wher my brothers house was when we visited, its called THE BAY. I worked in the BAy in Keolwona ,at 15 and 16, now I liked the raccoon in the area near the Mission CREek. so interesting, I know we have to keep our distance with wild animals. but its nice to capture them on camera. I shouldn't say very interesting too much. In Hunt magazine there is the story of us, me and Clarence Joesph fishn' gone fishn' together! they can't have all that stuff of mine! I made that. BUt the yeah the fishing, was pike, bass, pikcerelle, pickedled is nice hu? cucumbers, can you remember when your mother and FAther, would can orhorke? pickle from the gardne3? as I did too? yeah, yes I did, I canned processed cucumbers from my garden we me and clarnece josepsh Parisine I made him make me the garden. I am still renting, the sun is shine, I went to look for work, am taking care of myself, and my old injury, thngs are getting better. No, I dont' cry over her pillow, that Aunti Sonjia made. wow, what an incredible art she designed herself, I have lovely memories. of my sister Sonjia. I have to do some other things. take care. be safe . eat healthy

Today is a cloudy day, some sunshine. I noticed looking back in his seat a cop not really knowing what he's doing. Certainly I don't appreciate that as I wait by the corner of Ellis and Lawrence Ave. last week all the power was off some days, and the computers are still off in some offices. the rains really made some electrical changes I suppose. I noticed a book in the thrift shop with Judy Garland in it, noticing the Rainbow its called. then I thought this rainbow maybe you Elton could make a movie out of some idea?! these colours she has on her book is yellow-pale pink-ornage and red. my miniature pansies are doing really lovely! I slept really good last, night. I phoned cuz this rainbow I sent with all those bright colours, was really nice to look at, illuminateing changing like filtering colours it was very interesting! oh then yesterday after the drizzal rain while I was taking a transit bus home with a bus ticket transit I got the rainbow came out baby blue-yellow-pink tiny small over the valley looking above at 4f:45.pm. so hope you're doing fine, keeping safe, I see watch the news, dont' like it, too much nonsense. Will I am fine enough, I suppose, I hope you're happy and well, taking care of yourself. I am constantly paying attention to my old injury, as I know its going to take off now, get stronger real quick. thanks for listening. I am sleeping there. guess what came to Mcdonalds? this morning I found him or her, he is yellow bellied with a fluff of yellow tail, grey cuter as ever feathers several of them, yeah I think he came to me, cuz of dear big sister Sonjia leaving us and all, of us, little, oh, black tufts of two of them black spots on his stomach, grey head, yellow like a rainbow over his grey feathers strutted down his back while he has a yellow ribboned neck. So that is the canary I usually feed, I don't have feeders out where I rent, cuz I am not allowed to keep pets where I work, in the orchards. I hope to get it stuff, once I find the Taxidermy Store, where it used to be was on Springfield Rd. but moved away near the orthodox church on Kirschner Rd. cute little birds aren't they. Especially they are nice to watch, and please Sir Elton John be safe and take care of yourself. I heard on the news Boyance's sister was in bad luck when two thugs attacked her I was horrified, that she was being attacked, lucky she had on her highknee up and got a way. Poor dear! Hope they go to jail! so take care I have to go, I collected beer cans yesterday more than 3 dollars in the park, young kids threw them away, offered them to me. As it goes there were two more thugsters locking their thugster bikes on my plum tree, using crooks to get to my father's home. Unbelievable! O, did I tell you I was sitting in the Police helicopter loving this Mothe'rs Day My mother's Birtdhay event of sitting inside and looking that awesome Police Helicopter Pilot and Commander so awesome police that they magnify the persona of perfection, and its sad when other men don't follow their example, all the policeman that day scooting around the area, it was pretty cute.! so anyways, I really enjoyed this, My nephew Thomas K. is in the army and he flys, and jumps out of airplanes as the soldier of the war in Aphganastan, Yugoslavia, from Canada.

Ib ===, Mother's Day Rainbow2. May 9th. Saturday I saw this very nice Rainbow after the rains in Rutland. As I watched it ranged the sky from East to We#st I thought I would tell you about it, since it was so awesomely colourful! Ty and Tasha I have my children to tell it to too, but I was looking at it, as it changed colours, here is how it went: kukac/lilac baby blue,y7ellow, orange, redish/maroon, touch of maroon, rainbow. over 165 prior road, where we all rented at first, after WEstbank in earlier years and Rutland 715 Kennedy Rd. == before we bought 1342 Bertram st. JOHN< my dad, until and mom they passed away, we still own Bertram St. mom's birthday was on the 8th of mAY. SO ANYHOW Spring Showers brings May flowers a little poem too, begins at the Mountain there's a q there, crest hill, and falls over Springfield Rd on the other side of the Mission Creek, where my brother Russell and his wife Melody and their children Hunter and Holly owned their home up on Ziprick Rd. The Rainbow of these colours was before 8pm/9pm or so, matter of 15 minutes to lesser, it dissppeared. as I drew the Rainbow later on, after it was gone, what appears to me is this: duck/ grizzly/bear/ crocodile, coyote.,and mouse. these animals, my question is which colours do you think as it follows as I mentioned it, belong to the rainbow/animals? green/yellow to pink rain/rainbow, snow up there, light to darkened to lilac purple fusia, added colours as it often turned, yellow fishcia, baby blue green yellow, orange pink, so BRIGHT!! fusica covered yellow, change bright, pink yellow, green fiscia baby bleu blue green yellow red or orange. from right side to yellow fishia baby blue, gren yellow, orange maroon. it was so lovely I thought as I watched it was extrememly britht. the night before or more, there was a S[pade, and two arrows that way. from Theres aDel from Sundown and KElwona.
