We raised over $11,000.00 to benefit the Leukemia Lymphoma Society at the December 30th 7:30pm Trans-Siberian Orchestra Concert with $1.00 from every ticket sold going to the cause!
Pictured at the check presentation are the "TSO Girls" holding the check at each end with (from left) TSO's Chris Caffery, Nicole from the Leukemia Lymphoma Society and me. Thanks again!
Maybe the Buffalo Common Council had it right in investigating putting up a retractable-domed stadium (like Lucas Oil stadium in Indianapolis above) on the waterfront to house the Buffalo Bills and more! I remember back in the 70's when the proposal to put up a domed stadium in Lancaster was all the rage...it would have been the 2nd domed stadium in the USA (after the Houston Astrodome) and I remember well the late-great sportscaster Stan Barron telling me we could have been awarded a National League Baseball team and MLB would have never expanded to Montreal (Expos). It could have been paid for by just charging a nominal fee to curiosity seekers wanting a "tour" of the facility in just 3 years...but we all know by now how everything turned out (and we ended up paying for the Lancaster Stadium after all the lawsuits ANYWAY). If we are going to pay million$ to update The Ralph, we should think about paying a few more million$ to put up a new stadium downtown...that should solve the problem of getting people to come downtown to the waterfront!
If you're moving to Southern California you have to check out this beautiful home in Beverly Hills that's listed for just $13.5 million! It has 6 bedrooms, 9 bathrooms and features a large crystal chandelier in lipstick red! Oh, it's currently owned by The Voice judge Christina Aguilera who purchased the home from Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne in 2008 for $11.5 million. You can read more at http://513doheny.com/.
Jennifer Hudson (above) certainly performed a touching tribute to Whitney Houston at The Grammys, and at the very last minute too! Whitney and her incomparable voice will truly be missed, and my favorite Whitney song "For The Love Of You" the old Isley Brothers song from her "Whitney" album.
