You might just enjoy my next excuse folks – I was out of the country and since this is still ONLY a fansite and not an official site, I can not give this priority over work and/or other social responsibilities. Ironically enough, on the weekend of my birthday (14 may – well pretty close after the weekend anyway) I’ll have some time to devote to the site and do some updates on it. So don’t lose your nerves and while (if) you wait, just surf to the MTV’s Movie Awards 2001 site and vote for Julia and ‘Erin Brockovich’. Thanks for the patience.
Note… DATE : 03/26/2001
Welcome and thanks for visiting. First of all, to all the people that kept coming back, without seeing any updated news, my deepest apologies. I could rant on about the reasons for that, but after all, you have not come here to read about my life story, so I’ll leave it at lack of time due work and some other issues that simply had higher priorities.

The coming days, I will try to update at least the news section and biography, so the information is current again. I’d like to thank Marjorie and Mary Pat in advance for offering their help, I appreciate that a lot!

Well folks, that’s all for now – I better not waste any time, few more hours before Julia will walke up that stage and pick up her Oscar, which she deserves more then anyone else!
Site news & additions DATE : 05/19/2000
Check out the ‘biography’ section. Currently I’m processing all the data of Julia’s filmography, all the 40 entries should be up this weekend. If you have any suggestions as to what fields/info (per movie) should be added, please drop me a note. I hope to have a messageboard up then as well.

Thanks for visiting and your patience. JROnline webmaster

As you might have noticed (or are about to), not all the sections of this site are finished as of yet. We’re still working hard to get everything online, but since this is a personal site/project and we all do have our other daily responsibilities (work.. ;-/), it might take a bit longer. So please bear with us and if you WANT TO HELP, you can by submitting news/articles/pictures on Julia or her movies. Also, it should be noted that this is NOT and official site of Julia Roberts (see disclaimer). Of course, if you have suggestions, constructive criticism or what so ever, you are welcome to drop us an e-mail.
