richardssmiles is Happy that I may have a regular work schedule and days off like Normal? workers!
I am a happy-go-lucky sort of guy who appreciates beautiful women, good music, good food, meaningful movies whether comedy, love stories, dramas or Sci-Fy. I`m a hard worker who has satisfaction in a job well done. I`d like to find a special someone in my life (a special lady) to share life and pleasures with. Viewing the models on Zivity and observing the stories told in these photos help pass the lonely times. I wish all the models good fortune in entering these many contests. Too bad they can`t all win the prize money.,since they work so hard preparing for the sets and all look like winners to me. Keep up the good work, all!
Entertainer, classical singer, of opera, movies, pop, and standards

Hello! I am back and I have most really missed Zivity more then words can amount to. Hope you can have some time to check out some of my newest sets and give me some feed back on them! Hope all is well with you!! Thank you so much!
Thank you very much for voting for Knockout, Richard. How are you? It is great to see you back!
Hi Barb: I loved your suit and the set. I have sad news. Because of constant hours cut at work, I had to discontinue Zivity account. I`ll miss all the sets; hopefully I can rejoin later. I wish you and all the best .
Thank you very much, Richard. I am glad you like it. Sorry to hear you are having to discontinue your membership, and I hope you will be back soon. Do you have my email so we can still keep in toch?
How are you, Richard? I have been away on vacation to sunny ibiza for 2 weeks. Have a great weekend!
Glad to hear you are hopefully going to have a regular work schedule and days off.
Thank you for accepting my friend request! :)
Hi! You`re welcome and thanks for inviting me!
Thanks so much for accepting my friend request!
Hi Eleanor! You`re welcome. Thanks for asking me. I noticed you have new sets as well!
I do! :) Two are entered in the New Models Prize. Please take a look at them and my incentives and see if you deem them worthy of a vote or two, or perhaps find an incentive appealing. :)
Hope you are having a great holiday weekend, Richard. How are you? Haven't seen you on Zivity for a while.
Hi Barb: Sorry about my delay in keeping tabs. I love both "Teacher" and "Island in the Stream" sets. Hopefully now having regular work days off and on. Hope all is well your direction, too!
Lovely to hear from you, Richard. How have you been? Glad you like my 2 new sets. All is well here. I will be going on vacation for 2 weeks to Ibiza on the 13th.
How are you today, Richard? Hope you are having a good Thursday.
Hope your Saturday will be a good one, Richard. How did the banquet go last night?
Hi Barb: A disaster as I suspected. When I walked in, the area was a complete mess since there were banquets all day, and if left for me to try to dig myself out on my own, I would not have been able. A cook had to help me twice just so I could tread water, I hope David is OK. I lost my mom at 16 when she was only 48 from breast cancer. Death at any age is painful!
Oh no! I hope today will be a better day. Very stressful day for you!
Thank you very much. It is a release really, as she had been very ill since her stroke 7 weeks ago. Still a difficult time, but he is coping well, and I am looking after him.
Today there won`t be banquets in the night, Thank God, so it should go a little better. I found out yesterday that the 3 days off I had this last week is an ongoing thing thing. Great for me to get needed rest, but will be bad on my pocketbook.
Glad to hear there are no night banquets tonight, so should be less stressful for you today. Yes, less working days a week will mean less money, but it will do you good to have more time to relax. Have a great Saturday, Richard!
Hey how are you?
I have a new set that made it to editor's pick
Check it out and tell me what you think <3
<3 Please&Thank you <3
Hi Kat: It is a beautiful set; I was looking for some close up views as well since my eyes are not always dependable. Glad it made Editor`s Pick!!
Happy Hump Day! It's a rainy Hump Day here in England. How are you today, Richard?
Hi Barb: At 6 AM hump day it looks relatively nice outside no rain as yet with sunshine so far. I hope your rainy spell was just a brief hit and miss and your early afternoon is better. I`m feeling pretty good but a little tired. I know when I go back to work on Friday a banquet awaits,, so I`m trying to forget that for now. Today is cleaning day for me so I`ll start that and chat a bit later
The rain lasted all morning, but stopped at lunchtime, and it turned into a beautiful sunny afternoon. I was even able to do a spot of sunbathing! My new set has now been uploaded to Zivity, and is in editorial review. We have called it Islands in the Stream. Hope your cleaning went well. Dance class for me now, so chat to you later, Richard!
Hi Barb: Hope dance class went well.Glad to hear the weather there finally cooperated for you. You had another outdoor set you were going to shoot? Perhaps by the time you shoot that "Islands in the Stream" will be ready.
Enjoy your days off, Richard! Are you doing anything interesting with them, or jsut relaxing?
Hi Barb: I`ve been sleepwalking today so far; that is what usually happens first thing. I went to a discount grocery store earlier today and picked up some good prices on food. Soon, I will sleep. Did the river set post yet? I`ll watch for that Chat more later.
I am sure you will sleep very well tonight. No, David hasn't uploaded the river set yet. He plans to upload it later this evening or tomorrow morning, and then it will probably be a few days before Zivity approve the set. Sweet dreams, Richard!
*Mwah* pop by my set for Cyan's birthday <3!!! If you notice my profile photo, its a cake with her name on it <3!!!
Hi Tyler! That`s a lot of Pabst Blue Ribbon Beer there! That`s a good choice. A lot of people would put Bud on display. That`s a good set with you; Kind of different as blond; I`m partial to red heads in case you didn`t know!
Haha, I drink a lot. But it's okay!
Hi Tyler! You`re a good sport with a good sense of humor! I meant that was a lot of beer on the wall. Take 1 down,... I didn`t mean you personally were going to drink it all! Cyan might have a few since I think she could feel more at ease when her birthday is over. Cheers to you and Cyan!!
Haha, thanks Richard. Doesn't look like i'll be winning the contest, but at least I did something for Cyan's Birthday <3
thanks for the friend accept!
You`re welcome! I love your sets, and there is one very creative in particular--your 2 person set of poor girl/stingy and harsh Landlord. I Love that! You have that down perfectly!
Have a great weekend, Richard!
Hi Barb! Thanks.I hope your Mother`s Day is going well with Matthew back home. Special dinner with the girls today?
I am having a great Sunday, thank you, Richard, but it's not Mother's Day here in England today. We celebrated Mother's Day back in March. I cooked a family Siunday lunch though, and we had roast chicken for main course, and i made an apricot and almond cake for dessert. How is your Sunday, Richard?
Hi Barb: My Sunday is starting off pretty well. I had a relaxing day yesterday, went shopping with a friend and did needed laundry. Today I`m probably scheduled to work. The Executive Chef did not post the new schedule before my day off as he usually does, so I`m assuming it`s business as usual, even though it wouldn`t kill me if he through in another day off without my knowledge.
Glad you had a relaxing day yesterday. My Sunday is going well. I cooked a big family Sunday lunch, and am jsut relaxing for a while now before my circuit class later. Have a great Sunday, Richard!
Glad you finally got some time off, Busy Boy ;)
Hi Tyler! Thank you. It was well deserved, and the long hours not of my choice.I kept forgetting to tell you that in your 1 set, you could easily have been Princess Leia`s twin. Why should Luke get all the attention, right?
Hello! Nice to meet you. :)
Hi! Nice to meet you as well! Your profile gives you many acclaims--Ambassador, Prize Winner just to mention 2 They should have included Model with Best Smile! You do have a killer smile! You should use it more. But all of your expressions are great as well!
Thank you very much for your votes for Military Bootcamp. I am very glad you like the set, Richard.
Happy Tuesday, Richard! How are you today?
Thank you for the love doll <3
thank you for your votes ;)
Hi Jean! You`re welcome. My mother`s name was Jean and my sister`s middle name is Jean by the way. Sometimes it`s difficult to find sets by models; you know you voted for this one but you can`t find it. But 2 things I wanted to ask before I forget: Superpower telekenisis. Can you move things with your mind? Also,your profile mentions tall. I may have asked already, but are you tall as well?
Hi Ash! You`re welcome. I know I voted at least 5 times each for both the Wooden table and the seduction set, so I`d like to take advantage of the incentives offer. Also, I hope you like the songs.
Hi Ash! The songs in the 70`s were actually homemade as were songs before 1987. The songs 1987 and newer were in actual studios or live. May 8 I `m set to record again,songs I`ve all done before but to compare. The pics- do I say like #4 or #12 example for a set I choose?
Happy Mayday! Summer is here! How are you today, Richard? Another beautiful sunny morning here in England to welcome in the new month. I am planning to sunbathe in my bikini in the garden this afternoon, so hoping to get all the chores done this morning.
Happy Tuesday, Richard! How are you today? It's a beautiful sunny day here in england, and i have been sunbathing in my bikini this afternoon.
Hi Barb. Just returned from another hard day at the hotel and a little shopping. 1 more working day and I`ll have 1 day off to maybe unfry my brain a liitle. So how warm has it been?
It will be nice for you to have a well-earned day off. Not that warm yet today, but hopefully early 70s this afternoon, warm enough for me to sunbathe . I have been to the supermarket and out for a walk with my dog Leo this morning, so all the errands are done.
Hi Barb. I`m enjoying my day off sitting at my computer, dozing off as usual. Busily shooting another set today? Hope you`re well and all and enjoying your walks with Leo and Thursday? I have to think so often what day it is, circuit or dancing classes!
Glad you are enjoying your day off, Richard. Yes, I shot a new outdoor set today, and been to my circuit class this evening. My cd arrived today, Richard. Thank you so much! I am going to sit down and listen to it now. How is your evening so far?
Hi Barb. Day`s been not too bad actually. I ran an errand for a friend in the house room I`m renting, did a little shopping and grabbed a bite. What`s the theme for the new sets? Glad you got the CD and excited about recording next week!
The new set has a Scottish theme, and we shot it at a beautiful location by a river. Yes, of course, you are recording next week! How long will you be at the studio?
The head technician had me place a deposit and he put a 3 hour time frame for me. Depending on if my voice decides to join me, I can use all 3 hours if needed. I don`t have actual 3 hours worth of material; songs are not new, just doing repeats.
Yes, 3 hours' worth of songs would be a lot! My shoots usually last around 2 or 3 hours.
Thing about it is, if it`s something you really enjoy doing,the expression :time fliie when you`re having fun: applies. I forgot to ask: What does David and your kids think of your singers`s friends voice? Are they open to this kind of music as you are? Also, had you ever heard Sergio Franchi or Franco Corelli? Corelli taught Bocelli and was his idol as a boy!
Time certainly does fly when i am shooting! David really likes your voice. The kids haven't heard your music yet, but I will play your cd to them. My son Matthew is open to all kinds of music, and I am sure he will enjoy it. Melissa tends to just listen to chart music, though. No, I have never heard Sergio Franchi or Franco Corelli. I will see if I can find any of their music online.
Hi Barb. Both Franchi and Corelli have songs on You Tube; Sergio Franchi appeared on a couple of Julie Andrews specials in the 1960`s-1970`s. My late mother and I would watch Franchi on Ed Sullivan Shows. Special about these 2 tenors- they were tall, slim, and handsome plus voice. Pavarotti had great voice but not so trim. Looking forward to your sets when posted, Time for sleep. Later!
I will do an online search for Franchi and Corelli. we have been without internet all morning, as the broadband engineers are doing maintenance work in our area. The internet has just come back on, so thought I would reply while I can in case it goes off again. Hope you slept well, Richard.
Hi Barb> I read you have a 3 day weekend in England ( Lucky You!) I`m a little lost on holidays at times. Which one is it? I forgot to ask before-- Do you think my voice sounds pretty much the same in the 30 year span? Also, have the internet services been ironed out?
It will be the Mayday bank holiday on Monday, always held on the first Monday in May. Your voice has bsarely changed in 30 years. Amazing! Yes, the internet is back to normal now. they were jsut doing maintenance work yesterday. Have a great Saturday, Richard!
heya, how are you? thanks for accepting my fr!
Hey, thanks for the votes. AleciaRenee and I appreciate it. Hope your banquet with the 420 group goes well today.
Hi welcome. Thanks for the encouragement, and you`re welcome for the votes. Off to get slaughtered at the race!
I hope your marathon big banquet won't be too taxing tonight, Richard. Good luck with it! Do you get the day off tomorrow?
Hi. We just crossed paths a bit! My next scheduled day off is Thursday so I should say prepare for my marathon week! That will be working 7 days in a row before a day off.
Wasn't that a coincidence! You were just messaging me as I was writing on your wall. Good luck with your marathon week! I am just replying to your message now.
Happy Thursday, Richard! How are you today?
Hi Barb: Trying to get myself up, around and in work mode. Today starts a busy segment of days and banquets;and I`m dreading Saturday with the 420 group. How`s your day and dancing yesterday?
My day is good, thanks. I have just got home from my circuit class. Dancing was fun last night. We practised our foxtrot, and then did a little jive at the end .I hope your day is going well.
Hi Ash! You`re welcome. That is a very hot set! I almost had to take a cold shower after that beautiful one! Also, do you need an invitation to do that site for the CD`s?
Hi Ash. I signed up for Dropbox and I wrote you to your E Mail you gave me. Did I correctly put the songs in the mail and do they play? Your set of Seduction is still Awesome!
Hi honey! Thank you very much for voting for our set with Su3d3 H4rry, we are very grateful for your support!
Enjoy your day off today, Richard! Hope you have a nice relaxing day.
Hi Barb: The disc I sent you I found out was burned in data format instead of a regular Audio CD. I don`t know if it would play in CD players or computer, so I burned another one correctly and sending this today Double your pleasure? Hope your day is going well!
What data format is it in? I can play most formats on my computer. Don't want you to have the unnescessary expense of sending another if the first one will work. Why don't we wait till it arrives and I will try it?
Off to my dance class now, so chat later. Hope your day is going well too.
Thank you very much for your support for both my new sets. I am glad you like them.
To answer your question in your comment, the boots are very easy to walk in, and I am used to walking in heels. They are stretchy, so very comfortable to wear. Do you recognise the boots? I wore them in my Junction 27 set too.
hey, how was your weekend my dear? : )
Hi Sassie #1! How was New York? Your Photographer also wrote me, I thought it was you, and asked her questions I wanted to ask you. Did she mention this? Some questions were concerning how tall you are, and another was about appearing on another website under a different name. Send me a message, please, and I1ll explain. Answering your question: Weekend hectic!
Good Morning from England! Happy Monday!I hope this week will be a good one for you.
Hi Babs. It is 1:09 A.M. my time; just got back from work. Today, I`m sending off a revised CD. My friend reshowed me how to burn discs, one song I included is the one with my impressions-total songs 24. It will be interesting how many voices you recognize, What time is it your time? Mine, now 1:13 A.M.
You must be very tired after your day at work. It is now 9.50 am, and I am going to take my dog for a walk in a few minutes. Thank you very much for the CD. I am very much looking forward to hearing it, and will let you know when it arrives.
Hi. A little tired today, but nothing compared to yesterday!! I started then 8 PM, there were extra workers, doing great, then about 8 45 PM, the dish machine broke. Technicians came, couldn't fix it. I gave up at 3:15 AM, went home after trying to do some dishes and pots by hand . This was the banquet of 150. Disaster!
Wow, you must have been exhausted, washing dishes for 150 people by hand! Our dishwasher here at home broke a few months ago, and I was complaining about having to wash the family dishes by hand! Are you working again tonight?
Hi. Yes, and I1m grateful that the technician was able to fix the machine about 7:30 AM Sunday morn. So when I got there it was normal. I work Mon and Tues 3-11PM then have 1 day off, the 24th, and start again. The hard day is Sat with a banquet for 420. Oh Joy!
Lucky the got the machine fixed so quickly! How is your day going, Richard?
Lucky the got the machine fixed so quickly! How is your day going, Richard?
Hi Babs. Just got back from a little shopping, ate a vegetarian omelette at my customary place, and mailed the CD to the address you gave me. I hope it`s cushioned enough to be safe. I was told it should arrive there in 6 to 10 days. But what a lot is required to send things to other countries!
Thank you very much for sending me the CD, Richard. i will let you know when it arrives. Yes, I send goods to the States sometimes, and it is very involved, isn't it?
Yes. They aasked me what is the value of the CD? Being a singer, I said 500,000. The girl said Are you kidding? I dropped it down to 500, and she said that`s like 75 dollars fee. I said, ok, what is 0 dollars. She said like 5 dollars to send. What a process!
