GIGGLES+GRINS : Thank You !!!!!

Dear AR staff and customers,

Keith and I would like to thank you all for the amazing day that you had for my son Turner. It was wonderful to see how many generous people came out to support my family and I, some of whom I had never met. The day was so nice. As I visited for a little while, I was able to see Allison and her staff at work and what a wonderful job they did!! I cannot say enough about how sweet everyone was, not only to me, but to every person that came to the studio. You all will never know how thankful we are to you for your kindness and giving hearts. The money that was raised for Turner will be saved so that we can use it to best benefit Turner and our family during this difficult time. A special word to Allison, you are an amazing woman who God does and will continue to use to bless others. Thank you all again for such a wonderful gift.

With Love,

Sarah Lee

My Geek friends...

I wanted to say a quick thanks to my buddies Matt Herring and Brian LeTendre. They do a weekly podcast called Secret Identity.

"Secret Identity is a weekly podcast focused on the world of comic books, sci-fi, gaming and other areas of geekery. The podcast is done in conjunction with www.secretidentitypodcast.com."

Last week they devoted some air time to talk about our "GIGGLES AND GRINS FOR TURNER LEE". This was very generous of them seeing as how they are located in Springfield, MA. I have gotten to know these guys well over the last year and I think their show is very entertaining. They record a 3 hour program every week and break it up into two parts. The first deals more with comic books and the second half focuses more on TV and Film talk. Brian is the evil guy who got me addicted to playing the Xbox360 EVERY night. Thanks Brian.

Brian and Matt mention our event at the 23:55 mark. Enjoy!
A side note: the guys refer to me as POPPADEATH. Do not laugh, it is my xbox live gamer tag and that is how most people know me in the geek online world.
Episode #97: itunes, via their podcast site or their website. You can download it HERE.

You can also listen via this player... it works but you can not skip forward in this player.
