We are back from NC – oodles to catch up on,

Amazing how we went from 23 degrees in NC when we left to a beautiful 70 degrees in FL when we got home a mere (HA!) 13hrs later.

Have loads of photos from up there (was on dial-up at the cabin!) will upload them to the web site this week, check back.

Here is one photo (I LOVE this one) that I used as one of my flickr POTD (Picture of the Day) and you can click on it to see a few others I used while up there

Watch Today's Blog Video

Personal Video Message from Alice on what’s happening around here!

Sorry about all the eye blinking, makes me look a bit weird!

Tip for your viewing pleasure 😉

Let the video run through (ie download) once first – it is often jumpy and disjointed as the playing bit catches up with the downloading bit if that makes sense… so once it is all downloaded, hit replay this video and it will run through smoothly the second time.

I just LOVE Broadway Shows!

Hob-Nobbing with the rich and famous!

Alice and Yes this is Harry Wayne Huizenga, Jr

Actually it was my photographic skills, the fact that I always have my digital camera on me and a perk of being at every single WayFM Sharathon for the last 13 years that meant I got to go with the Station Manager Jim Marshall (here) and Senior Vice President Dusty Rhodes (Colorado) to personally thank Wayne for his $50,000 donation to the station.

Actually $25K was a straight donation and the other $25K of it was a challenge match to other listeners who called in to pledge – he added an extra $100 onto 250 callers, which meant his $25K match brought in another $70K plus – cool eh!

Harry Wayne Huizenga, Jr signed my shirt!

Yep that is Harry Wayne Huizenga, Jr the owner of the Miami Dolphins and he even signed the back of my shirt. He is a really nice guy.

You can see the rest of the photos from Sharathon HERE.

The photo of Me I used

So here is Today’s fun thing to do

You can go to myheritage.com and upload a photo of yourself (just your face really, close up, high resolution and facing forward is best)

Then they (the little men inside your computer who work for the web!!) quickly and deftly analyze the photo and match it against their celebrities database then spit out the results of who you look like….

I got a 10 results (graded by percentage) but not one of them was one of the 2 people that I often am told I look like.

I used this photo of me and here is what it kicked back

Drew BarrymooreKatherine HepburnAshley JuddMadonnaKate Hudson

Rachael Lee CookMarcia CrossSarah FergursonCharlotte ChurchMeryl Streep

72%  Drew Barrymore
68%  Katherine Hepburn
61%  Ashley Judd
60%  Madonna
59%  Kate Hudson
58%  Rachel Lee Cook
57%  Marcia Cross
57%  Sarah Fergerson
53%  Charlotte Church
52%  Meryl Streep (who incidentally I think my sister looks like!)

Well I don’t think I look remarkably like any of them, but I DID notice that most of the 11 results are ladies with, how shall we say it “strong chins”

So then I uploaded THIS photo of me instead – Got  10 results again – some repeats

73%  Marcia Cross
72%  Kate Hudson
70%  Lisa Kudrow
68%  Shania Twain
67%  Helen Hunt
66%  Meryl Streep
66%  Michelle Pfeiffer
64%  Madonna
64%  Michael Howard – HUH ???????????????
63%  Julianna Moore

Marcia CrossKate Hudson

Meryl StreepMadonna

So is that some kind of joke to throw in Michael Howard in there ????

and notice lots of ‘strong chins’ again – but MICHAEL HOWARD is a MAN !!!!

If you are wondering, I get told I look like Phoebe Cates and (a young) Ali MacGraw 🙂
