Anne's Diary
Friday, November 10, 2000
I've had post-party blues, postpartum blues (caused by baby Andrew's four a.m. cries for food) and now, along with the rest of the nation, I've got the post-election blues. On election eve, we had dinner with friends. We turned on CNN and as the evening progressed, we switched from wine to hard liquor. By the time we staggered home, nobody...

Yesterday was a typical Saturday. After breakfast, Whitley and I got in the car with a list of chores to do, but our final destination was a nearby theater, because we love the movies. We were headed for a Hollywood tearjerker that opened this weekend, an uplifting fable in which blacks and whites were all good buddies and those in power...

Unlike Whitley, I voted for a Presidential candidate, because I?m in the same situation that most of you are: I don't know the candidates personally and I feel a need to vote for somebody. I share Whitley's concern that Bush and Gore may have personality problems, because in today?s climate of scrutinizing and finger pointing, what sane and...

I was cleaning out a cedar chest today, when I found a photo of him. I hadn't thought about him in a long time; he was my first. I could feel my heart beating faster as I gazed at the photograph. He's the reason why I've been so hesitant to commit myself again, despite the fact that my friends tell me I've got to put the past behind me and...

In political times like these, I become wary in social situations. It's not just that I'm more liberal than most of the people in this town; it's not as simple as that. Most of the political conservatives I know are pretty comfortable financially. Perhaps they worked hard for it, perhaps they deserve it, but they don't seem too concerned...

Last week I had the kind of experience I've had many times in the years since Whitley wrote Communion. I talked to some people I've gotten to know recently and heard some extraordinary stories. Like most of the folks we meet every day, these people could be described as ordinary. One of them confessed that after he started photographing...

Since moving to what seems like a small town from New York City, I've found myself the object of discrimination at times. This is a new experience for me. I'm white and middle class, so I'm used to blending in. I never worried much about being accepted before. I was never on the cheerleading squad or part of the prom queen crowd. My parents...

On our September 3rd show, we talked with Janet Hull, the author of Sweet Poison, about the dangers of artificial sweetners, particulary aspartame. During the show, I noticed that many of our calls and e-mails came from dieters, mostly women, who were trying to lose weight by drinking diet sodas. It seems possible that aspartame could be...

Whitley and I have been so busy this past year writing books, thinking up ideas for movies and TV, and working to make Dreamland a success, that we usually work all weekend and we haven't even considered taking a vacation. So on the August 27 Dreamland, when Michael Glickman invited Americans to come to England and join the crop circle...

While listening to the Republican and Democratic conventions, I remembered this wonderful tale by Lame Deer that I found in a book on dogs. I loved it so much that I copied it into my computer, and I think it's worth reading now, with regard to our upcoming Presidential election. "We don't think much of the white man's elections. Whoever...

After a year of living in what was supposed to be a temporary apartment, we are finally packing up our boxes and getting ready to move into a new house. When my brother-in-law offered to build it for us, he said it would be ready in six months. I should have known better than to believe him. The place where we've been living is comfortable...

Whitley - Let Anne know how much I enjoyed her latest diary entry. I had to forward it to a friend who is having a similar problem in her neighborhood, minus the kamikazes. The little beasts started out friendly enough, just sitting on her porch staring a wreath she had on her front door. After being convinced that she wasn't just going to...

I decided to write about the newly revealed Third Secret of Fatima, because I just finished editing Michael Hesemann's new book "The Fatima Secret" for our Hidden Agendas series. It will be the third book in the series and is due out in October. Many miracles seem like wishful thinking, when you take a good look at them. But the Miracles at...

Whitley and I recently flew up to our old home town of New York City to attend our son's college graduation ceremonies. Wherever we travel, we can usually find someone in the UFO community to hook up with. In New York, a friend of ours who runs one of the original Communion groups has a friend who's the manager at a nice midtown hotel, so we...

Whitley and I don't do a lot on Sunday afternoons before we broadcast Dreamland. We've learned the hard way that we can't travel on tickets that require a Saturday overnight stay, because we've gotten stuck in airports twice and missed the show. My main regret about Dreamland is missing Sunday night football. My son is grown up now, but he's...
