bertodi: I am not being awful but I think some people should read nursery rhymes not poetry, which needs thinking about.

bertodi: please note, I will not change English spellings to American. We thought over here the Americans couldn't spell till I studied Americanistics at University.

bertodi: lab st barths human research staff have taken out 10 or more stories. Quote from one of the cheats: I won a prize with one of your stories. I felt bad when I first did it. So now I tell people I am inventive. ie I changed the story of your dad to a Jew who was taken to a gulag, not a jewish boss who sent him unjustly to a gulag and all your stories are suffering poor jews, not your peoples. It is just so easy to cheat and lie now a days. Lab destroyed your art, so we destroy your writings too. It is called reducing someone. When we reduce /rob/ we really reduce.

bertodi: I would like to thank all of you who read my work from the depth of my heart. I am in the process of moving and it is not so easy at 75 yrs old alone. God willing, one day I will have enough time to answer you all and chat about my thoughts. Thank you again for being patient with me.

bertodi: Please do not think I am trying to convert or otherwise. I am writing A point of view which is what writers do. As my Literature Masters was on the Reformation, and my family religions were quite diverse, from a great uncle who was a Monsignor in Austria to my dad who was a Ukrainian Orthodox and ran the religious aspects of our refugee community in England for a while, I delved into the subject quite intensely. Hope no one takes offence. I am just a very traditional person and I really do not make excuses for it.

bertodi: someone called me anonymous. I am Renate Fekete - Kenny. I use the pseudonym of Bertodi, as this Grandmother came from Turin and I am convinced she brought the art into our family! I am 75 years old. My family and I are being used in a 'special' destruction program by St Barths human Research- to cover the crimes they commit constantly as I was a Austro - Hungarian Displaced person and have no where to run. When I came to Arkansas, though totally self supporting, cash house etc the lawyer said: how can you hope to stay here without any birthcerts etc. They were taken away from us back in 1946 and 50,000 other Hungarians exiled because my mother had Austrian citizenship /mother's mother- farmers from the Wachau/from what was our country, which the allies gave to the Slovakians. MY dad SEMEN TELEWNY,was known world wide in the Ukrainian Diaspora as a writer and political-satirist. Mum was an interpreter for Klements. I a mere teacher of languages, literature, painter and poet! and run writers' groups as well as art groups.

    Marjon van Bruggen: An incredible, very interesting life and background. No wonder you write much biographical. There is a lot to tell!
    March 18, 2020 at 11:39AM
    Marjon van Bruggen: You have a super-interesting background. And therefore able to give first-hand witness information that only few people can give. You have an analytical mind, exposing facts and revelations to us, and to who wants to listen. You are 75, I am 79. We come from two different parts of the world, but we share the same, complicated years of modern history. I am glad and fortunate to know you and read your poems.
    April 6, 2020 at 10:46AM
    Marjon van Bruggen: Many times I wrote about my admiration for your analytical poems. Against your background: we have things in common. You are 75, I am 79 years old. Although from different parts of the world, we share the same difficult and complicated years of modern history and share them with other people, each in his own way. First-hand, not manipulated memories are worth so much. I admire your way of doing it in unique poetry.

bertodi: anyone not aware of modern goings on, please read my blogs on Facebook-- I am Fletcher Bounty..I just write it as it happens there.

bertodi: I really, really want to return the compliment and review my reviewers, however, I am in a bit of a bad situation at the moment which is causing problems on my time. I PROMISE FAITHFULLY that when stuff gets sorted, hopefully by next year, I will review all those who review me. Please accept my apologies.
October 4, 2019 at 5:33AM

bertodi: will review some of my wonderful friends as soon as I can, but having some heavy problems at the moment..
May 26, 2019 at 5:51AM
    Colin Lowley : Good luck with sorting these out mate.
    May 27, 2019 at 8:30AM

bertodi: I think our reviewers are lovely, such supportive comments!
May 19, 2019 at 4:16AM

bertodi: ..Chit chat forum HAVN'T and HAVEN'T...I seem to recall at school we were taught the former, yet the latter seems ./.. me too, I was always taught the former at school..

bertodi: all artwork on my pages is my own, see Fanart review
March 5, 2019 at 5:40AM

bertodi: word of warning- I had been using Fanstory as a sort of back up for my files as it is a paid for site-as well as meeting interesting people everywhere-because people had hacked into my laptop and I thought FS was safe. Someone hacked in to my page and changed work on the site and I had no copies. Do not use it as a back-up or your work might share the same fate, have it backed up by a stick..

    DR DIP: talk to Tom bertodi I am sure Tom could retrieve them

    JanPerry: I've been printing my work out, as a hard copy record.

bertodi: the lab operatives, mainly Alyson nee Megan, have your log in, they bring up your poem put on edit take it off and repeat the poem in front - taking the one for their own use- it is called total reduction and destruction therapy, as it is called therapy it is not a crime in the UK

bertodi: amazing all the stuff people write, yet the reality is much worse for some of us, yet no one wants to know, odd -

    I am Cat: WEll, i suppose it's all in the telling... I've told some truly awful things on here... yet in a way as to NOT tell it at all... they've been very well received... I think it's mostly about writing in such as way as to not mortally wound the person reading as much as the poet might have been wounded themselves in the living, you know? ;)
    I've not read your work, but I'm happy to find out what it is you're interested in telling (as long as it doesn't re-traumatize me in the doing so...)
    But that's how I protect me. ;)
