I would like to thank everyone that has supported the Project, and be assured, this site will be up and running to keep everyone updated. Right now, however, there is another, important item I must post:
March 3, 1920 - July 20, 2005
To Absent Friends
When lifting your glass, whatever is in that glass, please make sure "itís green".
I had the honor of meeting Jimmy Doohan in 2003 when he came to El Paso to participate in the Great Bird of the Galaxy Celebration in honor of Gene Roddenberry. I did not get to spend much time with him, but the time was one of the high points in my life. I did get to observe him. Despite obvious health problems, he went out of his way to be with, be accessible to, and to entertain his fans. The little time I did get to spend with him, he pointed out his son, of whom he was very proud, and he talked about his pets, and asked me about myself. I am glad he came to El Paso and shared his time with us, and with me. He will be missed.
