Robert Shampain! I was just thinking about you when I stumbled onto this page and decided to watch the video - since I am a B.U. alum (School of Education). I spent 5 years in New York City with my daughter Anna and we have now returned to the great Northwest... Look us up when you have a chance. Hugs, Arlene

Was a great show similar to 2008. Hopefully will be a yearly event!
