OMG Bob you're right. Not only did it make perfect sense upside down but I discovered Chrissy is a natural Blonde.

I keep receiving offers to shake, bake, and dump me in a lake from the Neptune Society...you wouldn't be the one who shared my name with them would you Chrissy. Still that might be a nice place to spend my reclining years. It's easy to see why you've chosen it.

I love your spot and hope you can enjoy it for many years to come before you live there. They did a beautiful job with the clip. It was great to see you and hear your voice.

The shock of seeing myself portrayed in such a positive way is overwhelming. The film makers did such a professional job. I am pretty humbled today and realize how lucky i am. Thank you all for your kind words. I have also got the article that they will be putting in the paper, when that is released i wwill put that up as well, it is more about how we benefit from the new technology. That should happen next week. It looks like it will be an online thing as theuy have got lots of informative links in the piece. It will be in the New York Times.
