I have opened the “Messages to Jesse” page for Christmas and his birthday messages to be posted by the visitors to my website.  Below is the link to the new page.

I invite everyone to participate and to post multiple messages during the coming weeks.  I thank everyone in advance for your expressions of love and caring to Jesse during this holiday season.

I also encourage you to invite others to visit and take part in the messages page.  As I am no longer on Facebook, I haven’t a way to announce this option as I have in the past and so I hope my visitors will help by passing along this invitation to your friends.



Jesse called us earlier this evening and we had a very good phone visit.  He is still not feeling very well and will be seeing his Dr. tomorrow.  He feels that it is just due to his age.  He is very disappointed because he has not received my package as usual this week.  We did a search for the tracking number and learned that it has been delayed in transit due to postal errors.  Jesse told me to tell them that he is mad at them…I added that I am mad at them too.  He and I agreed that they are really in trouble if he and I both are mad at them. We’ve both got #9 tempers (that’s  a numerology thing) ha, ha.  I am very concerned because he does not feel well.  His call was still the highlight of my day as always.


‘Blue Christmas’: The Story Behind The Classic Holiday Song

Blue Christmas” is one of the all-time holiday classics each year during Christmas time. The heartbreaking song about unrequited love perfectly captures how lonely the season can be without the one you love, which is probably why it’s been a staple for over 70 years. Though the beloved tune is now most frequently associated with Elvis Presley, it was originally recorded by Doye O’Dell in 1948.

According to Classic Country Music Stories, songwriter Jay W. Johnson first wrote the song on his commuter train from his home in Connecticut to New York City. He had been working writing jingles for the radio and was inspired by some of the other hit Christmas songs at the time like “White Christmas” which blew up thanks to Bing Crosby. He took his lyrics to his composer friend Billy Hayes and together they put the finishing touches on the song. But initially, no one was interested in recording the song when it was offered to various artists around Nashville.

Country artist Ernest Tubb recorded the song after O’Dell and his version ended up hitting number one on the Billboard chart in January 1950. Throughout the ’50s, Tubb helped popularize the song and generated interest among other country artists to cover the song. But when the King came around in 1957, he would put his own spin on “Blue Christmas” that would forever associate him with the holiday tune. What’s interesting is he reportedly didn’t even want to record it at the time.

According to backup singer Millie Kirkham, when they first entered the studio to record the song, Elvis said “Let’s just get this over with.” Kirkham added at an interview at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum that everyone in the recording, including backup singers The Jordanaires and guitarist Scotty Moore, felt the same way and didn’t believe the studio would actually release the song. But the rock and roll version of the country Christmas song became a major hit on Elvis’s first Christmas EP, Elvis Sings Christmas Songsalong with other classics — “Santa Bring My Baby Back (To Me),” “Santa Claus Is Back in Town,” and “I’ll Be Home for Christmas.” It has since been covered by some of the greatest musical acts across all genres from The Beach Boys to Martina McBride.

“Blue Christmas” Lyrics

I’ll have a blue Christmas without you
I’ll be so blue just thinking about you
Decorations of red on a green Christmas tree
Won’t be the same dear, if you’re not here with me
And when those blue snowflakes start falling
That’s when those blue memories start calling
You’ll be doin’ all right, with your Christmas of white
But I’ll have a blue, blue blue blue Christmas
You’ll be doin’ all right, with your Christmas of white,
But I’ll have a blue, blue Christmas










This video was shared with me by a lady who felt it is wonderful that Elvis is still “working to help others“… as shown by his inspiration and example to this young boy.

Michigan boy with Down Syndrome becomes an ‘Elvis Presley Tribute Artist’

Tom came across the below photo of the Statue of Liberty recently and brought it to my attention.  Back many years ago, I was very active in my interest of the fact that the Statue of Liberty has the face of Elvis.  Way back in 1992 when I was first in touch with Jesse, I wrote a lot to him about my findings and my beliefs related to many aspects of his life…the Statue of Liberty was one of those topics.  I posted several times on my website about this topic also.  I just did a search for Elvis and the Statue of Liberty and I see that now there are many, many results regarding the fact that Elvis/Jesse looks just like the Statue of Liberty.  At least one of the results was actually from my own website.  

Back in the days when I was doing my work with the Bible Codes, I found instances tying them together as well.

Call me crazy (Lord knows, many have and do) but I have to believe that there is a reason for this fact about Elvis and the Statue of Liberty.  As Elvis used to say “There are no coincidences.  Everything has a meaning.

One of the items which I found which I believe to be significant is the following scripture:

Isaiah Chapter 11: Verse 10

“And it must occur in that day that there will be the root of Jesse that will be standing up as a signal for the peoples.  To him even the nations will turn inquiringly, and his resting place must become glorious”

                       New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures

I don’t know to whom this photo should be credited…for that I apologize.  I am assuming that this photo is from the New York-New York Casino in Las Vegas.

This is the photo which Tom came across that took me down memory lane about the correlation between the Statue of Liberty and Elvis.

Isn’t that stunning?!!!  Just look at those eyes and those lips!

Below is an example of one of my Bible Code slides which included Liberty, Elvis, USA, symbol, Presley, etc.  This copy is from one of my earlier Current News Pages on my original main website in May, 2013.

The following is another Bible Code.  This one includes Elvis, Liberty and many other relevant words. Just some more food for thought…

This first image is the color-shape word code or “key” for the slide.

There are some very significant grouping of words within this large slide.  At the top of the slide, just look at the words lined up together:  symbol, Presley, & USA.

Then scrolling down there is a very clear grouping of the words Elvis, songster, and Presley.

Then below that is a grouping of LIBERTY, Elvis and Presley. 

At the top of the bottom half of the slide, please take note of the VERY strong grouping of the words musician, LIBERTY, biblical, and Elvis.

At the bottom of this same slide, please note the appearance of the words prophet, biblical, Elvis, Liberty and songster.

..Elvis, liberty, musician, etc. in Genesis 47 bottom half word keyElvis, liberty, musician, etc. in Genesis 47Below is the bottom half of this slide…it is too large for one image.

One last photo of the Statue of Liberty…

While I am on a roll with my Bible Code slides, I have one more very  important one which I want to emphasize.  This one shows the names Elvis and Jesse in the book of Song of Songs.  How amazing is that?!

To sum up my above Bible Code information, I will share the copies of the front and the back of the CD program which I used.  As you can see this CD was compatible with Windows 95/98 so it will no longer work in my Windows 10.  Otherwise, I would be looking up names in the headlines today.

Thank you for taking the time to peruse and consider my information.


This afternoon I had a very interesting and exciting call from a very good and true friend of mine of so many years, Mr. Tim G.   Tim has been very supportive and helpful to me and Jesse over the years and I appreciate him so very much.

During our conversation today, Tim told me about something he learned and confirmed just this afternoon.  Tim is a very accomplished musician who often worked at the Grand Ole Opry.  He was working there back in the mid 1980’s at the same time that Hank Snow was appearing there.  

Tim had heard the following story during a weekend when he was performing there.  Just this afternoon, he was in contact with the man about whom Tim had heard back then.  This man confirmed today what Tim had heard back in the 1980’s.

On a Friday night, at the Grand Ole Opry in the mid 1980’s, Hank Snow gave a package to a man and asked him to deliver the package to Col. Tom Parker at this home/office.  When the man arrived at Col. Parker’s home/office, a lady answered the door.  The man told the lady that he had a package to deliver to Col. Parker and she said that she would have to go ask if it was OK for her to accept the package.  While she was gone, she left the door open just a crack and the man saw Elvis sitting on a sofa watching TV.  The man said that he later asked “Tom” about what he had seen, but Col. Parker did not confirm it was Elvis.  Of course, he would never have done that.

Back at the Grand Ole Opry that same weekend, Tim heard the story from others about what this man had seen at Col. Parker’s.  So, on that Sunday, Tim went out to eat at the Quincy’s restaurant near Col. Parker’s and he saw a long Cadillac pull up to Col. Parker’s home.  He saw Col. Parker and several other men get out.  And then, he saw another man with white hair and beard get out and the other men gathered around this man and they all hurried inside.  Tim has always believed that the man he saw was actually Elvis.  Tim’s belief was pretty much confirmed today when he exchanged messages directly with the man who delivered the package and who saw Elvis in Col. Parker’s home/office.

This man told Tim that since it was the same weekend on which he had seen Elvis at Col. Parker’s on Friday night, that it probably was Elvis who Tim saw on Sunday.  Tim and this man had heard stories about Elvis spending time there with Col. Parker.

My heartfelt thanks to Tim for calling to share this wonderful information with me.  I thank Tim for giving me permission to share this here on my website.

Below is a good comparison of Elvis to the Statue of Liberty.  One of my favorite facts about Elvis and the Statue of Liberty is that the time frame during which Elvis was in the Army was when the match was perfect…America’s most famous soldier.

Was Elvis Presley a narc? Music’s Greatest Mysteries aims to reveal all

Elvis Presley meeting President Nixon

(Image credit: AXS TV)

AXS TV’s new series Music’s Greatest Mysteries kicked off last month, and the next episode hope to get to the bottom of one of music’s great mysteries: did President Richard Nixon enlist Elvis Presley and make him a federal agent in the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs?

The odd couple originally met in the Oval Office on December 21, 1970, after Presley had written to Nixon after completing what he called, “an in-depth study of drug abuse and Communist brainwashing techniques.”

“I am Elvis Presley and admire you and have great respect for your office,” wrote the King of Rock’N’Roll. “I talked to Vice President Agnew in Palm Springs three weeks ago and expressed my concern for our country.

“The drug culture, the hippie elements, the SDS, Black Panthers, etc. do not consider me as their enemy or as they call it the establishment. I call it America and I love it. Sir, I can and will be of any service that I can to help the country out. I have no concern or motives other than helping the country out.

“So I wish not to be given a title or an appointed position,” Presley continued. “I can and will do more good if I were made a Federal Agent at Large and I will help out by doing it my way through my communications with people of all ages. First and foremost, I am an entertainer, but all I need is the Federal credentials.”

No transcript of Nixon and Presley’s conversation was ever made public, allowing the meeting’s conclusions to become the basis of much speculation (and a 2016 comedy film, Elvis & Nixon).

Now, Music’s Greatest Mysteries aims to get to the bottom of it. The show will be broadcast on AXS TV this coming Sunday December 13 at 9 p.m. Eastern / 6 p.m. Pacific.



There is a brand new book out about Elvis and the TCB Band which looks like it could be interesting and a good read.  I always enjoy reading and/or hearing James Burton and Ron Tutt speak about Elvis.  They are good guys for sure.  

‘On Stage With Elvis Presley’ by James Burton, Ron Tutt, Glen D. Hardin, and Jerry Scheff

When Presley returned to live performances after his 1968 “comeback” on NBC, he formed the TCB Band (which stood for his longtime motto, “Taking Care of Business”), who toured with him regularly from 1969 to 1977. The band members – James Burton, Ron Tutt, Glen D. Hardin, and Jerry Scheff – recount their musical and personal experiences with the singer in their 2020 book, On Stage With Elvis Presley.



Below is another match of Jesse and Elvis…can’t have too much of a good thing.






Below is a very enjoyable news article which Tom sent to me.  I love this story which correlates an Elvis song to the far reaches of outer space.


Galactic Singalong

The physicists at LIGO detected more gravitational waves. And this time, they say, the waves resonate at the perfect frequency to harmonize with an Elvis Presley song.

The waves formed a perfect fifth, Science Magazine reports, meaning they sync with the opening notes of Elvis’s “Can’t Help Falling in Love.”

The two notes are a particularly unusual pairing for gravitational waves, the LIGO researchers say — but one that could help them understand how black holes form in the first place.

Balls Of Fire

Scientists detected the waves last April, but only just presented their analysis at this month’s online American Physical Society meeting and are now awaiting academic publishing, Science reports.

When a pair of orbiting black holes creates gravitational waves, they usually emanate at a single frequency. Picking up two notes suggests one black hole is significantly more massive than the other, which raises the question of how the two came together to form a binary system in the first place.

“Einstein Prevails”

The scientists are considering two ideas: that the black holes originated from two stars that were already orbiting each other and then collapsed, or that the two black holes happened to travel near each other after forming independently, Science reports.

But they do know that the bizarre resonance matches not only Elvis’ music, but also Einstein’s predictions for how such a pair of black holes would behave.

“Einstein prevails again,” LIGO physicist Maximiliano Isi told Science.


My very  good long-time friend, Lucilia created the wonderful below composite as a Christmas gift to me and gave me permission to share it here on my site.  My heartfelt thanks to Lucilia.

You will note that Lucilia used the above photos of Elvis and Jesse which I posted several days ago to create her montage. 

I love this so much!


“I love to make these comparisons with the cuts because whenever I do there is no effort to fit the parts, both sides of the face fit perfectly. As soon as I saw these pictures on the website I decided to make this montage and send it to you as a simple Christmas gift.”



I have an update about Jesse which I want to share with everyone.  Needless to say, I was VERY concerned because Jesse has not called since Dec. 2nd.  He was not feeling well when he phoned then and had a Dr. appointment planned for the next day.  

Years ago Jesse told me that if I did not hear from him for two weeks, I should call our go-between to see if he knew why.  So, this past week, I did put in a call to our go-between and he returned my call on Friday afternoon.

Jesse has been in the hospital in a city where he does not live.  He has been released from the hospital but has had to stay in that city (I assume that is so that the Dr. who treated him in the hospital can continue to see and monitor him.)    He does not have his regular phone equipment with him and so he has not yet called me.  The go-between will let Jesse know that we spoke.  Needless to say, I will be greatly relieved when Jesse is back home and we do get to speak.

I thank those who have contacted me with concerns about Jesse’s well being since they saw that he has not called recently.



This is copied from Instagram where it was posted by theelvisartist Betty Harper.  I loved seeing it and want to share it here.  Isn’t this something amazing to learn about Elvis!

I am going to break one of my own steadfast rules this time and post some quotes from Elvis’ ex-wife, Priscilla, and his temporary fiancee, Ginger Alden.   I most often don’t like what they have to say and don’t publish their comments…but this is important for people to understand about Elvis “the human being” rather than the stage presence and super-star image.

Perhaps this will convince people that I am telling the truth when I state that Jesse has NO presence whatsoever on the Internet…he is NOT on Facebook and he has made NO recorded statements nor given any interviews.

I have highlighted some text in red ink below regarding what his ex-wife first thought when she was told that Elvis had died.  This is an extremely telling statement.

Priscilla Presley Said Elvis Presley Would ‘Check Himself Into the Hospital’ to ‘Get Away From Everyone’

Fans of Elvis Presley likely know him for his on-stage charisma and catchy tunes. But he had quite an interesting personal life as well. While he seemed to have his on-stage persona down to a science, his wife, Priscilla Presley, and his fiancée, Ginger Alden, have talked about what his real personality was like. And it seems Elvis couldn’t stand being around other people for too long.

In one interview, Priscilla revealed Elvis would go so far as to “check himself into a hospital” just to get away from the public. Here’s what she said.

Elvis Presley was an extremely private person, according to Priscilla Presley

For a rock ‘n’ roll star, Elvis was certainly a private man. And Priscilla experienced his reclusive nature first-hand. The ex-wife of The King has talked extensively about how he liked to keep his private life private. She’s even joked about how if he was alive today, he’d stay far, far away from social media.

I could not see him doing [social media] at all!” Priscilla told, according to Vanity Fair. “He just never got into the fame thing. He performed, but if you look back he hardly did any interviews. He did what he was supposed to do, but he wasn’t into it. He was a very private person. I definitely can’t see him on social media.

Even Priscilla and Elvis’ high-profile wedding was a private affair. According to Vogue, Elvis’ manager had his wedding party sneak away and prepare at midnight the night before the big day. “The wedding party snuck out the back door of Elvis’s Palm Springs home, climbed over the backyard wall, and got into a car to head to the airport,” the manager noted. “Elvis had been loaned Frank Sinatra’s private jet for the occasion.” The couple was then married at 10 a.m. in front of a small crowd.

Priscilla noted Elvis would ‘check himself into a hospital’ for privacy

Priscilla has talked a lot about her experience being Elvis’ wife over the years. Back in 2018, she had an interview with Australia’s Sunday Night. And she noted that when she caught wind that Elvis died, she thought he was having another one of his moments where he just needed to get away from everyone.

“He would sometimes check himself into the hospital because he wanted to get away from everyone,” Priscilla explained. “He didn’t want the demands. He didn’t want the phone calls. So, you thought it was one of those times.”

Unfortunately, when Elvis died, it wasn’t one of the times Priscilla described. Alden was the one to find him dead in his Graceland bathroom, and he couldn’t be revived.

Ginger Alden stated Elvis wouldn’t even leave his bedroom

It wasn’t just Priscilla who commented on Elvis’ reclusive nature. Alden also talked about how Elvis desired to stay in his Graceland bedroom when he was home, as there were typically many people wandering around below him he didn’t want to interact with.

When I did visit Graceland, we indeed stayed upstairs quite a bit,” Alden noted in an interview published on Elvis Australia. “I attribute it to the fact that there always seemed to be a flurry of activity going on downstairs. He would often ask me who was downstairs, which was usually an employee with a date or friends and he would say that he didn’t want to go down then.”

Alden noted Elvis was particularly shy when he was unshaven or still in his pajamas. He wouldn’t leave his room at all if that was the case.

Priscilla Presley Said Elvis Presley Would ‘Check Himself Into the Hospital’ to ‘Get Away From Everyone’

Elvis who IS now Jesse still does not go out too much and when he does he takes measures to avoid being recognized.  He has said that he does not want to be hunted down.  He has also told me that he is “paranoid” about being found out.

So, I hope this puts to rest those stories and outright lies about him being on Facebook under other names and giving recorded statements and interviews which run on YouTube, etc.  All of those instances are done by frauds, liars and fakes who get their kicks from leading gullible people on.



A very good friend sent me the link to a new interview on YouTube with Paul McCartney because he knew I would like the first few minutes of it.  You will see the bass which belonged to Elvis’ friend and fellow musician, Bill Black, sitting behind Paul and hear him talk about it with excitement.

I am having to mail out my weekly package to Jesse early this week because Christmas Eve has been declared a Federal Holiday.  Therefore, I am assuming that there will be no postal service on Thursday and Friday.






Christmas Elvis…



Jesse called me about 11:30 tonight.  He is not feeling well at all and is back in the hospital.  He could only speak for a very few minutes tonight and said he will try to call me tomorrow.  I am very sad and worried for him.  Prayers please.



I want to let everyone know that Jesse did not get to call me today as he had planned.  Of course, this worries me.  I definitely will post as soon as I hear from him again.

Please continue your prayers for his healing and well being.



I send everyone my very best wishes for a blessed and Merry Christmas.

Jesse just called me a couple of minutes ago and I was so relieved to hear his voice as I have been beside myself with worry all the time.

Jesse is not well and will be having some procedures and likely a surgery this week.  I am going to be honest with all those who truly love him and tell you that it is his heart.  He has an excellent Dr.   He is staying in bed resting most of the time.

He knows how upset and worried that I am and he said he will keep me updated as often as he can but may not be able to call frequently…he may be in the hospital for some time.

I am requesting that everyone please pray for him to be healed.

My heart is aching with caring and worry…

Jesse has asked me to keep writing to him and mailing him my news articles etc. every week just as I always have done.  So, I will keep posting some new items on here as I can…things I think he will like as well as things that I think my visitors will like.  Please forgive me if I am not as active though, as my mind is very preoccupied.



The way it was back in the good old days of 1956…

Elvis Presley 1956 – Rare Unseen Footage with fans and in concert

Apr 23, 2014
Elvis Presley 1956 – Rare Unseen Footage with fans and in concert



I am sorry that I did not get this posted last week.  It was a special day on Monday, December 21st.  It was the fiftieth anniversary of Elvis’ visit with President Nixon in the White House.  It is very special that the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum is commemorating the anniversary.

When ‘The King’ met the president: Elvis visited Nixon 50 years ago today

Today marks the 50th anniversary of what’s considered to be the unlikeliest White House powwow of all time: when Elvis Presley met with President Nixon.

An image of the Dec. 21, 1970, meeting — with Nixon in a staid suit and the King of rock ’n’ roll in one of his wild getups — is still the No. 1 requested photo from the National Archives.

The Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum is commemorating the occasion, and other artifacts include two family photos Presley gave Nixon, plus a series of handwritten notes from the rocker to the president on American Airlines stationary.



Elvis lives again — in songs, sales and birthday bash

Elvis Presley would’ve turned 86 on Jan. 8, and the King is having a bit of a moment again.

Graceland is celebrating the rock legend in Memphis, Tenn., Jan. 7 to 9, and Page Six reported that the Richard Nixon Presidential Library and Museum just commemorated the 50th anniversary of the mind-bending meeting between Presley and the president at the White House.

Adding to it all, Jon Bon Jovi just released a cover of Presley’s “If I Get Home on Christmas Day” as a holiday hit, and New Orleans antique dealer M.S. Rau has put up some prized possessions of Presley’s — a nickel-plated .38 Special with a gold hammer for $98,500 and a variety of over-the-top gold-and-diamond rings, including one with his initials. Also up for sale, we hear, are the singer’s gold-and-diamond watch, rhinestone cuff links and monogrammed sunglasses.

It’s also notable during the current pandemic that Presley received the polio vaccine on “The Ed Sullivan Show” in 1956 — to convince the public it was safe.


Another beautiful piece of Elvis jewelry now for sale…

  • This impressive wristwatch was once owned by the great Elvis Presley
  • It was later gifted to his close friend and backup singer J.D. Sumner
  • The Swiss-made timepiece by Ebel is crafted of 14K gold with 26 inset diamonds
  • Personal items once owned by Presley are immensely desirable and sought after

Once worn by the most celebrated cultural icon of the 20th century, this incredible diamond-studded watch was owned by Elvis Presley. The watch was later gifted by Elvis to his close friend and backup singer J.D. Sumner, along with a custom-made gold ring to match.

Elvis possessed a love for gospel music beginning at an early age — not only did it influence him as a singer, but it also provided a source of calm and support throughout his demanding career. His passion led him to form a close friendship with the American gospel singer J.D. Sumner, whom Elvis looked up to as a teenager. Sumner became a mentor to the young singer, and after Elvis launched his career, he hired Sumner and his quartet as his backup singers in 1971. The group toured with Presley for six years until his death in 1977, after which Sumner would sing at his dear friend’s funeral. Sumner continued his career as a singer until his death in 1998. He was inducted into the Gospel Music Hall of Fame in 1984 and the Southern Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame in 1997.

Elvis often gifted tokens to his close friends and colleagues, but this watch is perhaps the most extravagant gift he ever made. Crafted of 14K yellow gold, the Swiss-made wristwatch features a handsome clock face surrounded by 26 round white diamonds. The band features a personal engraving, which reads “From Elvis to J.D. Sumner, 1974.”

The best-selling solo artist in recorded history, Elvis Presley remains among the most loved and recognized celebrities in the world. Seldom does the opportunity present itself to acquire such an exceptional piece from one of the most celebrated entertainers in recent history. This incredible artifact of Elvis memorabilia is accompanied by certificates of authenticity and a photograph of the entertainer wearing the watch.

Final Countdown to Midnight DVD : Elvis Presley Pittsburgh 1976 New Years Eve


I will be printing out your messages to Jesse to mail out to him today.  The Messages to Jesse page was scheduled to be closed yesterday.  Because of Jesse’s illness, I have decided to leave that page open for a while longer in order that everyone may continue to send him get-well wishes and messages to let him know that we are all concerned and love him so much.

Please rest assured that I will post here just as soon as I have any news of how Jesse is doing.  I thank everyone so much for staying in touch and asking about him.
