Of course I'm going to vote for you, my dear! I even have a post-it-note up on my computer to remind me.
Best o' luck!
P.S. Have you guys done anything with the pics from the screening? I got mine developed, but the quality isn't that good from the bad lighting in the theater. When I get them scanned, I'll send some your way (and to the others, too.)I think I'll post a couple, too.

Hey guys!
The news crew just left from doing a spot for the 6 o'clock news.
We spent the whole "wait time" talking about Firefly and Serenity!!!
The crew at our house, was very excited to hear about all the "craze"
I told him how all the Firefly "Browncoats" were getting together to vote for us. He said he can't wait to see how many votes we get.
They told us if we win the make over, they will talk to us about doing a promo about Serenity. they wanted to know about the web site with the fans, pre- screenings, etc.
I told them even if we do not win the contest, they still need to do the story about Serenity.
So lets hope they do!!
thanks again guys for your votes..Tomorrow is the BIG day..the day that can make a HUGE difference in our lives!
GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!!
Bob and Sue

(((HUGs))) for Bob & Sue!

I voted this morning.
You have to register by email first, so you can only vote once a day per email address. It told me I could vote again tomorrow after 9:25am. When does the voting end? I'll vote as many times as I can.

I'm going to go register on my other email address and vote there, too.

It's a shame that there can be only one winner in this (though I do hope it's you and Bob, you certainly do deserve this!). All the stories are heartwrenching. Everyone deserves to have a decent place to live. That's why I volunteer at Habitat for Humanity every weekend. (shameless plug.) Let's not forget that there are thousands of stories like Bob and Sue's right in our own neighborhoods and that we have the power to help.

the voting ends at Midnight tonight...That you can vote tomorrow is very misleading..

SO, vote until Midnight Eastern time.
clear your cookies before you vote on each of your other e-mails, some people have been having trouble getting kicked back, but if they clear the cookies each time, there is no problem
thanks everyone for all your voting!!

I for one am waiting to see what kind of response this will get here, I have seen over time how the people here will pull together and in general how kind they are to each other. Oh sure we have the random Troll pop by now and again, but once we throw them in the back forty where they belong we go back to discussing what brought us together in the first place.

Sue, I hope you and Bob do well in the voting, but most importantly I hope you do well with your treatment for that is what really matters.

Now it's time for this lurker to find his shadowy corner of the room to hide in again until something else can pull him out into the light of day

for those of you who are having difficulty with registration, if you get an error for missing info, be sure and enter a username in the top line.

if you are trying to vote with different e-mail accts, you should clear your cookies. (if using XP, click on "tools" then "Internet Options" then "delete cookies").

when on the actual voting page, when you click on "Bob & Sue King", recheck that your vote is stiil correct before entering. Sue has had a problem when scrooling down to enter, it changed her vote. So please verify your vote before entering.

Thanks Browncoats

Y'know, I keep telling my wife, the bridge could be our computer room, the engine room could be for our laundry, and isn't the kitchen adorable with all of Kaylee's vines . . .

(Which brings up the question, where does the crew of Serenity do their laundry?)

Well, realistically, I don't think it would be the most comfortable home. The cast even talks about how all the metal made for a hazardous place to run around. But if I were embarrassingly rich, I would build it just to throw Shindigs in.

I don't, but Cyberus (the ISP equivalent of Fox ) has been known to block certain domains with no warning and no good reason. Coupla' years ago it forced me to lose contact with a high school friend (with whom I'd been communicating regularly for several months --one day her emails just stopped reaching me).
