bartaski.jpgGuess who visited my on line store recently?

Yep, my good friend and also doctor, Dr. Bart Moore of MD ANDERSON CANCER CENTER. He is proudly displaying the items that he purchased at the “Just Ask!” online store a short time ago. Not only is he a supporter of NF and “Race Across America for NF”, he’s also a very cool guy to have on your side.

Could you get your doctor to take a photo like this? I don’t think so! What a great sense of humor. Thanks for sharing your photo Dr. Moore! You’re the best!!!

Check out what people had to say about Bart at my Flickr account.

Reggie,

Per our conversation on the phone, I would like to welcome you to the Honorary
Board of the Texas Neurofibromatosis Foundation. It is a privilege to have you on the board.
The foundation appreciates all you have done for Texas NF and NF awareness.

We look forward to working more with you in the Houston area.
Talk to you soon.

06_95_imgp1439.jpgHouston, It’s almost time to Rodeo!

Cowboy Up, America! When a cowboy’s in a pinch, he just tightens up the cinch, spurs his horse and rides right through it, cause that’s the way the Duke would do it. He’d Cowboy Up.

This year it’s going to be another terrific year for the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo. Just as I did last year, I will be there enjoying all activities for the 2008 show.

This year I plan to see more of the livestock show then I did last year. As for music, there are several performers I want to see this year. There are two I have in mind now, that I want to see Rascal Flatts and Tim McGraw I will see more then one, I hope. All that to look forward too, and I haven’t even started on the great food.

How many of you are planning to go the the Rodeo, and who will you see? It would be a great idea if any of you go, to take pictures and send me a photo and I will make a section for our photos for this year on the blog and Flickr.

reglousmall.jpgToday, Lou and I had a meeting about the blog, website and future plans. Everything went Terrific!

While at STANANDLOU, we took a few pictures after the meeting. I’m looking forward to the exciting things we have planned for the website. Of course, I came up with most of the ideas so don’t give Lou all the credit.

Anyway, I will be heavily involved helping the Texas Neurofibromatosis Foundation with their search for a cure for NF. I want to help with their events for 2008. I know I will go to the NF camp this summer.

If you are a regular on my blog, it might be a good idea to start spreading the word about the blog to your friends that have NF. The blog is a good place to find out about upcoming events and also just to share information and have fun, too!

I think people have fun here even if they don’t have NF. Just ask Shelley, Arthur and Lou. Never mind, don’t ask Lou!!!

01a-wrap-cover_splash.jpgHappy New Year 2008!!!

Well, a year has passed and we are at a new beginning. I look forward to great things this year. Maybe something new for NF research. Let’s keep hope alive. Now lets talk resolutions. Or promises, or whatever you want to call it. Something I want to do this year is build up my friends list to at least 200 or 300 friends with NF on myspace.com dailystrength.com or youtube.com Any one of the three. Oh yea, one more thing. drink more Starbucks and hopefully meet with some of my friends that I talk with everyday about coffee.

On a serous note. Please remember our real HEROS in 2008 in the U.S. ARMY, and military service members. When you see someone in uniform say thank you.
