It’s Friday, December 9, 2005 and everywhere I look there is snowfall. It’s truly Christmas in New York City. Now for those of you who love this winter weather, it’s the place to be, but for those of you who don’t, you’ll love my new weekend adventure. I am getting ready to head off to Los Angeles for the weekend (on business mostly)! Before I depart though, I want give you a quick recap of the past few weekend adventures.

First off, Happy Holidays to everyone and my apologies for not getting them out sooner. Trust me, you all were in my thoughts but it was just all the traveling and cooking that kept me away from the computer. My girlfriend, Sarah, and I traveled down to the Richmond area for the Holiday and split our time half with her family and then the other half with mine. It’s different though, you know, being so close to someone that you start to share holidays. It takes some getting used to, but I have to say that TWO dinners are better than one! Besides lots of family bonding and sleeping (as I specialize in that primarily), I spent the remainder of my time horseback riding. It’s kind of a new fad for me that Sarah’s family has helped me with, and now I can say that I can officially ride “bareback”, LOL! This may not be the prettiest sight yet but at least I am staying on. Overall, my Turkey Day/Weekend went pretty well. Please let me know some of your HOLLA-day stories or some of your Horror-Day Stories, all are greatly appreciated.

This past weekend I was able to go down to Richmond yet again as I was extended the invitation by the CBS affiliate (who also put on our Paramount’s Kings Dominion weekend) to take part in their “Kick-Off Christmas Parade”. Although I am not originally from Richmond, I have been down there quite a bit so they (CBS-Richmond) figured just being from Virginia was good enough, LOL. I am sorry that I didn’t put a comment about this up sooner, giving those individuals who were close enough to travel to the area sufficient notice. For those of you who were at the Parade, you all were so kind and fun to spend the afternoon with. Now before I go any further, I have to say thank you SO much to both Sheryl Miller and Rob Cardwell for being awesome yet again! Thanks for the gloves ya’ll and let’s do this again SOON! The whole crew down there was amazing and I wish I had more time to go through and mention everyone by name, but I must begin to wrap this entry up as I need to head out the door in a moment.

I have finally received word about the airdate of the new NBC show “BOOK OF DANIEL” that I was fortunate to work on in my spare time from GL. The kick-off date is January 6th (Friday) at 9pm and will be followed up by a second episode at 10pm. From then on, the episodes will air Friday nights at 10pm. Please watch and send me your feedback. Speak as freely as you wish, no offense will be taken, I PROMISE! I will just say that it is a different character from Coop in some ways.

As far as what’s to come on GL, what did everyone think of the new Ava/Coop story line twist? Love to hear some feedback! I will mention, as I have seen some buzz about me needing to be shirtless again (always makes me blush), that Lizzie and I have some very sensual stuff coming up SOON! It was definitely HOT enough to make me blush a few times WHILE we were still shooting it. Crystal Hunt is so much fun to work with and professional too, YOU ROCK GIRL!

Anyway, that’s all for me now, I must head out to the sunny West Coast for a few days, but I will return next week with some fun stories to tell, I’m sure. Happy Holidays again everyone and I will speak with you all again soon.

P.S. I hope that everyone who has been asking for autographed pictures has received them??? Please let me know if there are any problems with this and I will thus have to let my Thunderous Voice Rain Down upon those in charge…..or maybe just ask nicely???!!!
