Error 404 and so much more

Error 404 and so much more

Last Updated on February 26, 2021 by Celia

The customized error 404 pages look like the image above. Cute, yes?

More articles were added to the articles page.

I managed to find the .mp3 sound file I took from the Murder House Flip episode. My Sirv account automatically backs up every media file uploaded to this site which includes .mp3 files–how lucky is that? Thank you, Sirv! The file is back below the mp4 video clip.

With the addition of the plugin WP Last Modified Info, it is now possible to see precisely when each page and post was last modified.

Added a link to a blog article – BTTF# 19: The Tragic Death of Child Actress Judith Barsi in Canoga Park Remembered 25 Years Later–you can see a screen capture of the history of the selling of the house from Judith and Maria’s murder on to the current residents, the Berdahl family, as featured in Murder House Flip.


Please consider making a donation of $1 or more if you want to support my ongoing efforts to keep maintain this project. I could really use the money.  Thanks much in advance to anyone who decides to contribute.


That’s all for now. Until next time.

For deeply personal reasons, I’ve added a plugin to help the low sighted and blind read this site. I am a disabled person myself; I have no problem going through lengths to adapt my site. Under the + which opens the site widgets, on the right hand side is a blue circular icon with a white figure of a person.

Click on this, and it will give options to change text size, styles, fonts, and screen contrast. It will also read the entire site aloud.

I was going through my old Judith galleries just now when I discovered an old scan I did of a Globe magazine article back in 2010. Apparently, I forgot to list it in the All Articles photo album; major blunder on my part! It is now part of the album on the articles page.

 


If anyone is feeling charitable and/or generous, I could use a donation of $1 or more to help pay site expenses. I still need to make up the $21 I spent upgrading the site’s theme. Please donate here:

Thank you to anyone who choses to contribute. I really need all the help I can get.


That’s all for now. Until next time.

Running on empty.

As per usual, I must apologize in advance for lack of updates and not updating sooner. The biggest reason for this is because I am as of this moment unable to fully pay my hosting bill. $116 still remain.
There are a number of updates this time around:

  1. A relative of Judith’s first grade teacher has been kind and generous enough to reach out. He has shared pictures of a mouse figurine Judith gave his mom in December of 1984.
  2. New, discovered commercial: Fruit Wrinkles (1986)

    Thank you so much, Tracy, for finding and posting this!

I will be painfully honest : I am reaching out to all my friends and the entire internet fan base out here. I need to pay off the credit card I use to maintain the site. I only have until the 12 of January, or 13 days time.

The amount I need is $64.

I live on a fixed income due to my Cerebral Palsy and can’t afford to spare any extra money at this time. I have already paid more than $200 since October, and I am exhausted!

To donate, please find the $64 Drive Campaign side bar widget (seen below),

or click here.

 

I am shamelessly down on my knees begging–PLEASE HELP! I can’t miss this payment!

H E L P,

P L E A S E!

Thanks much in advance! 😳

It works!

And I am T I R E D! I spent the last 48 hours deleting my entire wordpress database, installing a new wordpress and importing all site data so the theme I bought, Elation (for $21 per year), could actually display the way it is supposed to. That is the advice I received from the theme’s creator himself. I was initially terrified because I risked losing data in the transfer. I did lose pictures and videos, but have most of it back. It took some digging around and relocating media. In the end I didn’t lose much at all. And–dare I say it?–I think it works now (satisfied sigh)! Can you all see and navigate the theme/site? Please email me if you can’t.

I fixed the Kitten Chow commercial. It was previously unknown to me that neither the photo gallery nor the youtube video were working. If any of you out there know something does not work properly, once again, please email me as I am not always aware.

I had to move the Jaws 4 and Remington Steel videos to my flickr account as youtube would’ve banned the clips for copyright violations instantly. If someone wants to report me on flickr for “stealing” from NBC/Universal, be my guest. I’m keeping a sweet child’s memory and work alive. I do not profit from it; this has never been my intention. If bad goes to worse, and I have to remove the clips because lawyers say I do, I will.

Another good stroke of luck happened. I was browsing instagram late last night, and found a Jello commercial the poster says is from 1985. It is definitely Judith.

I am slowly working to pay off more debt because of the theme purchase. If anyone wants to help me out, donate whatever you can afford here. I always appreciate any help given.

More surprises soon to come.

Growing Pains gallery updated

I added a few more screen caps from Growing Pains mostly because I acquired the full episode this morning from a new friend. I captured Judith’s screen credit. You can view the updated gallery here. Thanks, Lewis, for the episode!

Still working to make the site better and easier. More updates are coming.

That’s all for now. Until next time.

I was lucky enough to quickly find on ebay February 3rd:

SEPTEMBER 25, 1988 ST

The full version is in the rare photo gallery. Notice the special was called “Losing A Sister”.

Still working on getting the money for the full theme upgrade. I should have it within the next 3 months without any site donations.

 

That’s all for now. Until next time.

I know last update I promised content on the kofi page. And I still intend to give all that content.

I am in the beginning stages of a sinus infection. I’ve slept, mostly. My schedule is completely off. I feel terrible.

There is little left to say except I’m sorry. I have no choice but to let the infection run its course. Please forgive me. Thank you all for understanding.

I will update as soon as I possibly can.

 

UPDATE: Sorry for the grammar mistake. I have done the responsible thing and corrected it. Yes, Daniel. This is a John Lennon lyric. 🙂

 

For the theme of it

For the theme of it

Last Updated on February 1, 2021 by Celia

One of my friends said last night that the site layout –the theme–is hard to navigate. I am well aware of this. As of right now, I cannot afford to upgrade the theme to make the layout easier. It costs $21 per year. I am trying to pay off $81 in credit card debt before February 12. That is exactly why I started the ko-fi page so that perhaps someone would help out with site expenses every now and then. Upgrading the theme would help all others easily navigate this site; I just can’t afford to at the moment. I have made it the current $21 goal on the ko-fi page. If anyone wants to chip in, please feel free to do so via ko-fi or paypal. Any amount given is much appreciated! Thanks in advance.

Back to work for me. Until next time.
