Oh...Em...Gee!!! Lynn and Meghan, it's Joey from NKOTB!!
If you were a teenage girl in the mid-late 80's and early 90's then you likely had a poster of
Joey McIntyre and his New Kids on the Block bandmates on your bedroom wall. For the record, I did NOT have such posters on my wall. Thankfully, I was just old enough to have missed this phenomenon all together. But of course, as trends go, what was once old, becomes new again and another generation have discovered NKOTB. Late last year, Joey released a solo effort aptly entitled Here We Go Again.

Canada's first Asian Roman Catholic Archbishop, Vincent Nguyen.

HAVE YOU TAKEN A FEW MOMENTS TO HELP HAITI?? While poking around the internet today, I stumbled upon photographs on CNN's website. As much as video can tell a story, still photography allows the viewer to linger and have a close-up look...these images may be disturbing to some, but they illustrate the horrific reality of the situation.

Please give what you can....a little can mean alot to someone who has nothing.

People in N. America should thank their lucky stars for what they have. On the worst day, most Canadians have more than Haitians do everyday.

Barbara said...

Yes. Very true. I have been counting my blessings this week for sure. We have a lot to offer even if we thought we didn't...

Trudy said...

Jann Arden will be a great interview - she's so funny.

I'm kind of intrigued about tonight's episode with Joey McIntyre. I remember last season's premiere week where New Kids on the Block was scheduled to be on the show, then they were mysteriously dropped. George wasn't too excited to interview them.

I think there must be something to this. I knew he wouldn't have the Spice Girls on, but he has had Mel C. on the show. So Maybe he's ok with Joey.

Then again Joey does have something to promote and 1 New Kid is better than all of them!

If Joey McIntyre said "ya know" one more time...ugh.

Philip said...

I wonder what happened to tonight's episode. It's not a new episode, but a repeat of one of the "Best Of's" with Stephen King.

Barbara said...

George explained that the Canada for Haiti show is taking The Hour's time and energy so they are presenting a repeat in the Thursday night slot instead. I promise Friday at 7pm you will get a very full HOUR with emotional impact.
