    Seriously? I think skaters need some better transition plans, none of them seem to know how to move on. But I like Johnny's skating, so if he can't move on, let's see him bring it.!

    Yes, they both look so happy together, and that's great. I hope their union will always be happy.

    In regard to Johnny's comeback, I didn't expect to hear his decision this soon, but the timing must be right for him. I recall he did say that he was going to train hard after the holidays and then make a decision with his coach regarding a comeback.

    Wonderful for Johnny that his off-ice dreams have come true and he feels ready to meet the difficulties of on-ice competition head on. :saint:

    I take it he's remained with Smievskaya? I really, really hoped he might chose a different coach if he came back.

    in general I would agree with you, especially if they're no longer in their prime..but honestly I feel like there's this age discrimination in figure skating that's kind of unnecessary. it seems like every year more and more people are breaking boundaries by skating past their teens or early 20's..and if people these days can push the envelope technically by doing so many quads in a program..why can't we similarly stretch the amateur skating age a bit further so that a female skater at 24 and a male skater at 27 aren't necessarily considered old fogeys anymore?

    Thanks for the updates. Very nice photos of the happy couple. Johnny does love to clean. I remember on his TV show he talked about his obsession with cleanliness in the home. He is my kind of guy!

    Johnny skated to a new program for the charity show, Re-Born Garden, in rememberance of the devastating earthquake that hit Japan a year ago.

    The program included 3Lz, 3A, 3S, spins and step.
    My friends told me that he looks fit and in good shape.

    The music is Chopin’s Nocturne, which seems to be this piece:

    Thanks for the link. Victor has a very sexy voice, and he's quite handsome. Johnny and Victor look so good together and happy too. Seems a great match. Interesting how they first met (seems there is more of a story behind that first meeting), and then reconnected much later. The time must have been right for both when they reconnected. :)

    Johnny and Victor made an appearance at the GLADD Media Awards last night and spoke to the audience, kudos to them for making a difference.

    From Johnny's tweet

    A great skating day. 3 Quads, one quad triple combination, a good start on my free program and a finished short.
