R&P: What song would you share in tribute to the memory of Paul Hester, drummer for Crowded House?
Topic: The sisters 2005
June 19, 2019 / By Wayland Question:
Hey now, R&P: This is really just a personal question that I wouldn't be surprised not to get too many responses to. I just wanted to share some memories I have of Paul Hester, the drummer from Crowded House.
On this day back in 2005, the body of Paul Hester was discovered following his suicide. I was devastated because Paul was an amazing spirit and had been very cool to me the several times I shared his company. I used to follow Crowded House's live performances the way people followed the Grateful Dead, I must have seen them over 15 times.. From a Valentine's Day boat performance through a Capitol Records parking lot performance, I was there.. Nick Seymour of CH took a liking to me, and always made sure I had whatever backstage or special access I needed and Paul Hester was amazing to me everytime, once even giving my sister a kiss on the cheek. At one performance while I was hanging near the Back stage area, a homeless man appeared to tell us that Paul Hester had slipped him a hundred dollar bill!

I didn't realize you had seen CH so many times! What a wonderful memory of "Paulo". He was a true original and one hell of a drummer.
I always think of "Sister Madly" when I think of Paul. I remember once he said that it was his mother who taught him how to use the brushes, which are of course featured prominently on this song. I also know that we always loved it when he brought out the little drum kit to the front of the stage!
Oh, and of course "This is Massive"... although technically a Split Enz song, CH always liked to do it live - a great, high-energy crowd pleaser! Unfortunately I can't find a video where Paul is actually singing it, as he does on "See Ya Round".
RIP Hessie... I love Matt Sherrod's work, but Paul simply was irreplaceable.

Ron Paul up against a socialist majority (both dem and repub) would get nowhere. See this video:

I think we're on the very bumpy, albeit correct, track. By 2010, things will be ten times worse than in '94, only this time, people will have become so irreversibly disgusted with the dem/repub status quo as to equate them... finally.
It Seems so very fitting

Originally Answered: Can I form a corporation and deed my house over to it? What happens to my psnl credit if the house forecloses?
If you are looking to transfer your home into the corporation you may be able to transfer title (I am not a Lawyer), but you will not be able to remove yourself from the Mortgage on your home along with the personal obligation you have to repay the loan. Your best bet if you are going to be looking at foreclosure is to deliver a deed-in-lieu or to find another way to avoid foreclosure (contact your lender early and often)
Setting up a corporation, you will find that until you are well established, you will need to have a personal guarantee on your business loans and mortgages and this will also be based upon both your business plans and performance as well as your personal credit and finances.
