Error 404 and so much more

Last Updated on May 9, 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 Bernal family, as featured on 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 your convenience, I’ve added an ajax powered search to the site. Ajax means it searches and updates the search as you type the words or terms. The search box is located at the end of the menu bar (see below screen capture).

I’ve enabled 3 different statistics collectors on the site, and as such, am required to let browsers/users of this site decide whether or not it is fine with them they are counted. I do and will not have any advertisements. This site will always be free. I do not make any money except for donations. I cannot see anyone’s private information such as their IP address, name, address, email address, phone number, and so forth. That being said, anyone may and can still choose to decline and not be counted as a statistic.

If anyone is interested in helping out, I need $24 by April 12 for buying a lifetime subscription to moavi software. I am using it to make Judith Barsi and Heather O’Rourke tribute videos to post on youtube. Donations can be made here or here. Heartfelt thanks to anyone who decides to lend a hand.

That’s all for now. Until next time.

Permanent hosting?

Permanent hosting?

Last Updated on April 3, 2021 by Celia

I went ahead and bought “lifetime hosting” from a webhost called rootpal.com. The site has been moved over already and appears to be working normally. Lifetime hosting, at least in theory, means for many years. I don’t want to have to shell out $100 or more per year to keep this site online. I live on a fixed, disability income and am sick of pleading with my boyfriend to allow me to spend money to keep this whole thing alive. So, PLEASE, PLEASE, let this be my host for at least 10 more years. I had to pay $100 plus an additional $20 for them to migrate the site over, so I have been working to exhaustion trying to get it paid off before the 12th of this month when my credit card bill is due. I’m nearly there. I need approximately $10 more. I’m wiped out. This has been no fun, but at least I won’t have to worry about hosting for the foreseeable future.  (sigh)

That’s all for now. Until next time.

 

The Haunting of Tionne Watkins clips

The Haunting of Tionne Watkins clips

Last Updated on March 13, 2021 by Celia

I’ve decided to add a clips compilation of an episode of “The Haunting of…” ; it is, of course, Judith related. It is a show with a physic and ghosts and the musician, Tionne Wakins, best known as a member of the lady Soul group, TLC. It is apparent Tionne and her daughter, Chase, are being visited by the ghosts of Judith and Jozsef. The clips can be viewed on this page. The full episode is here.

More updates are coming soon.

That’s all for now. Until next time.

Murder House Flip slide show video added/cookie notice deleted/Google Translate/MailPoet Subscriber

Last Updated on March 10, 2021 by Celia

I’ve a lot to cover in this update, so here goes:

  • Added a video slide show of Murder House Flip from this article posted on the New York Post website. No copyright infringement is intended here. There is no sound in the clip because the video downloaded that way from the default website settings. In the original video, there is only background music. To see the clip, please go to the linked page above.
  • I decided I did not need the plugin for the analytics integration so I deleted it entirely. No more worries about cookies or browsing privacy.
  • Google translate is available to translate the site for all non English readers. A dropdown menu is located in between the site banner and logo. See screenshot below:
translate

 

  • I’m working with a plugin called MailPoet which makes customized emailed newsletters each time I make a new blog post. It comes in handy if one wants to stay up to date with all site updates and changes. This is what the newsletter looks like:

There is a subscription widget on the right hand side of every page. It is the topmost and first one. It asks for the user’s email address to sign up.

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)

    Judith Barsi Fruit Wrinkles Commercial (1986; 1080p Upscaled)

    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! 😳

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.
