Well I have my holiday so I can spent my whole day on Elvis, play his music, crash on the couch to watch TCM whole day and night, and of course light a candle. What are your plans?

I don't see anything listed on TCM this year. In fact I just did a search on the program guide and all it came up with was a Elvis tribute on QVC on the 16th.

Things aren't what they used to be in that area. Used to be you had 2 channels that had Elvis tributes on in January and August.

I have a lot of them on DVD I"ll probably do an ELvis Marathon of my own making that way for a couple 3 -4 movies.

There I meet Elvisfriends and we make something together

You must get a different version of TCM in the UK probably like we do with your BBC. We get that channel but here in the US they're showing like Citizen Kane and other non Elvis films according to the web site. Disapointing but I can do my own with DVD anyway

It's a shame, but I won't do anything special. I listen to Elvis' music nearly every day- regardless if there is any anniversary or not. I don't light candles or send prayers. It's just a normal day. Sorry, but I'm not too sensible....

Start the day with Elvismusic. Go to work. Get back from work, listen to some more Elvismusic. Put in a nice Elvis movie (I think I'll reconnect my vcr and watch This Is Elvis).

And of course, I'll be listening to the special TCB-Radio broadcast of course (see frontpage).

Since I'm not in Memphis this year. I will be out on my back porch tonight and have my own candlelight vigil. I light one and listen to Elvis music for a few hours into the late night. Have done this a few times when I happen to not be in Memphis. Next year I'll be at Graceland again. Also I happened to be off work that day in 1977 and I have never went to work again on that day, always took it off and now this year I'm retired so I will never have worked that day.
