Update for September 2007

 

Saturday, September 29, 2007 8:00am (EDT) Washington, D.C.

Having a great time at the Out & Equal Conference here in D.C..  The workshops have been great and very informative.  The gala last night was attended by about 2,300 people.  Congressman Barry Frank was there and gave a resounding speech. We have not had much of a chance to get around town yet.  The conference ends today and we are staying tonight so will get out this afternoon to see some things.  We drive back on Sunday to New Jersey.

It is well past my bed time but wanted to add this.  Was at the amFar (Foundation for Aids Research) big fund raiser tonight at The Puck Building in lower Manhattan.  Click on the link to read more about this famous building.  Had a nice little chat with the gal below in the picture.  Paris Hilton that is.  It was really nice talking with her.  She was very nice and enjoyed having the photo taken with us.  The event was fun as always.  We had several people from the court there adding glamour to the event as only we can.  We have a nice relationship with amFar and have done fundraisers for them in the past.

Closed the house on Fire Island a week early.  Jeffrey has an event in the city this next week and I will be at a conference in Washington DC with Edward and Kevin as mentioned in the September 12th blog entry.  Did a lot with the Fire Department this last weekend.  My back has been killing me.  Need to see my Chiropractor on Monday.

Not much to report.  Business as usual I guess.  Just lots of things going on and I have been under the weather a bit.  But I am getting better now.  Lots going on at work and lots around here too.  B and I were talking and it's less than 200 days until our Coronation Ball in March 2008.  Planning is well underway for it.  Weather was terrible yesterday for the 9-11 ceremonies.  It was a deluge out there for spells with flooding everywhere.  I was caught in one and was soaked by the time I got to the car.  Have the Fire Department end of season dinner this weekend and then next weekend we close up the house.  The last weekend in September we are attending the Out & Equal Conference in Washington D.C. (www.outandequal.org).

Out on Fire Island.  Just got done with rehearsal for the show tonight.  I am running lights for the show.  Trying to remember how the board works.  It's coming back to me. This is the first production I have done out here this year.  After being on the Board of the Arts Project for a year, I decided that I had to many things going on out here.  So I try to only do Fire Department and Dock work these days.  This year I have been traveling so much, it has been difficult.  Not sure also why I have not wrote much this past few weeks.  Just have been tired I guess.  Let's see if I can fill in a few blanks.
