        Yeeeeha! My song "Walk Away" is getting regular airplay all across
        Canada!

        And

        Looks like my girlfriend and I will be going to NYC early in December to
        spend a few days volunteering. We don't know exactly what we'll be
        doing, maybe something as menial as making sandwiches for Police and
        Firemen, but we wanted to do SOMEthing!

        Here's a quote from some friends of my parents who were there October
        11-18:

        5. We attended a fireman's funeral at an Assembly Church - its
        something to see. Service was over 2 hours starting with all the
        firemen standing on the streat in a long line of 3 abreast - probably
        300+, 2 large firetrucks with ladders crossing high to make an arch and
        a
        large flag joining. Pipe band playing walking by all the firemen and
        they all file into the church, family, friends and guests went through a
        side door. The fireman was only 34 years old, Trevor was with us and I
        mentioned that he was same age. Mayor Guilliani walked right by me (I
        didn't see, but Bob noticed) and joined the procession - he gave a great
        talk at the service, I was impressed.

        6. We went to Times Square Church on Sunday - about 8,000 for all 3
        services. 10:00 a.m. 3:00 p.m. 6:00p.m. For the first service we had
        to be in our seats at 9:00 to get a seat or have someone reserve it.
        The church was so full that there were people in the overflow watching
        on a screen. Others stood along the stairs up the balcony for the whole
        2 hours service. Its really something. We then took the train to
        Ground Zero and walked around. Its cordoned off about 1 1/2 blocks
        around the whole area, but you can see at each street leading to the
        twin towers and take some pictures. There were 2 streets where the Army
        was located and pictures were not allowed as they said it was a crime
        scene. They also had 2 flatbeds with beams from the tower and they were
        so large and strong - hard to believe something that strong could melt.
        As we walked around the perimeter of Ground Zero, it was quiet even with
        so many people walking - very somber in that area.
