    I want to thank everyone who came out to support the Gary J. Lynn Foundation. Everyone worked so hard and I wish everyone could have come in first place. Dr. Aisen said she had such a good time and was happy to have met everyone.
    Cerebral Palsy International is flying my mom and me to New York City on Thursday and I am being honored by CPI at the Plaza Hotel on Sunday night. I was named Ambassador for CP. I have not told everyone but thanks to Texecutioner and his gilrfriend Stacie, who is now a good friend of mine, I was invited to present my foundation to Stacie's company. They made a very generous donation and I have now raised, with everyone's help close to $14,000.
    Thank you all and Jeremy, I am going to put you and your wife to work soon. I appreciate all that everyone has given to me. I am also so lucky to have Eric. If anyone has any ideas for fundraiser where everyone comes out happy, please let me know. Our motorcycle ride with City Line Cycles will be April 19th. If you know people who do these rides let me know and I will send the names to Rich.

    I completely forgot to mention that to you the other day in person Gary.

    I had a strong feeling if we had gotten you guys before the committee that you would steal the show, and you got it!

    I'll just put my 2 cents here. Gary and his brother saw a snowstorm and loved every minute of it. No doubt you will hear about it sometime today and he will have pics to show "you guys" as they say in NY.

    The trip was great. I went all over NY. I was on TV. We went to the Early Show and Ann Curry came over had put me on TV. The we went to the Morning Show and saw Chris Ragge. He started yelling when he realized it was me. He brought everyone over from the show. Chris did a couple of sports shows with me and took me to a Rockets game. The cameraman who came to the cook-off was Chris's cameraman when he was a sportscaster. I went to the Carneige Deli and they were filming a documentary and put me in the film. You should see the size of the sandwiches they have. They are so big you cannot even hold them.
    The Plaza was beautiful. John Amos spoke with me and introduced me. He was the father in Good Times with JJ Walker. I met Paul Volcker and Michael Hausman. He was the executive producer of Brokeback Mountain, Silkwood and Amadeus. He gave me his number and I am trying to get him down here to do a movie premier in Houston.
    I would love to go back. I was in the snow and we were lucky to get out. Laura Bush walked off the plane we were going on. There were only two planes that left Laguardia and ours was one of them. I will post more pics later. My aunt has the other camera cord. I forgot, I also went to Madison Square Garden.
