I landed the role of Tinman in the Up in One Production of the "Wizard of Oz." It is playing at the Rhinebeck Performing Arts Center, Rhinebeck, NY. Here's a link to information about the show. If anyone is up this way, drop me a line, please, and come to this delightful show.

I know this may sound crazy, but I lost all of my yearbooks in an unfortunate incident years ago. I remember some of the names on the list but it would help if we had pictures of us when we were young (yearbook pictures) I would upload them myself but I can't.  Is there a way to get this to happen?  It would help us to remember because some of the pictures now don't really look like us when we were 17 or 18.  I personally am blonde now but I had dark hair when I was younger. I see that there is a place for the pictures that you can click on but most of us are not there.  Any ideas?

Hi everyone. I just wanted to share with you that I am going to be a great grandmother. My 1st granddaughter, Brittany, is having her first child in August. Her and her husband are very excited to know they are having a girl.... this will be my 4th girl. I only have 1 grandson and he's feeling a little closed in by all these girls...haha. But he loves them and is very happy for Brittany. Does this mean I'm getting old??? or what....I never thought I'd see this day, but am thankful I am here to experience the joy of having grandchildren. They are so precious and I am blessed to be able to hold them and love them in this life. God BlessHi everyone. I just wanted to share with you that I am going to be a great grandmother.

ALoha from Haiti!

i'm posting a picture of the little boy, Nixon, who dragged himself up the hill past the rubble of his school.... with an old walker and legs which hardly work, a big smile on his face. YES WE CAN!  (See Danny's profile page for the picture at http://www.khs68-69.com/class_profile.cfm?member_id=1012883)

150 of his classmates and 4 nuns died in the earthquake which leveled his school...

with aloha from Danny Susott, MD,MPH, Medical Director, Airline Ambassadors International, www.airlineamb.org

Yesterday I auditioned for the "ANUNCIO", the highest officer of the Vatican here, with "Ave Maria" for the nuns. it was a success, and I even had a choir of nuns backing me up. so if the POPE does come, i'll be like Whoopi Goldberg in SISTER ACT, singing for the Pope with the Nuns,... we'll call it "Sister Act 4 Haiti"!! love, Daniel

Port-au-Prince, Haiti

hoping to flood the country with volunteers!

PS we're getting the Mexican UN soldiers through the Mexican Embassy to help us clear the rubble of this school to build one for the community with the nuns as teachers. and volunteers from Columbia U on Spring Break to clear rubble...

We open March 19 and play through the weekend. Great stuff!!  The director is Lisa Baldwin, an alumnus (?) of one the high schools in Newport News. Small world.  And, another happy note, I am finally divorcedafter a grueling five and a half year ordeal. Hooray!"
