a “cut and paste” post from my facebook page in the interest of some good, old-fashioned, shameless self-promotion….

Here’s some info about a special premiere night for MPBN members!
“MPBN is celebrating a special episode of This Old House shot in Bucksport, Maine and features local architect, John Gordon. The show will be aired on MPBN Television Saturday February 2 at 3:30 PM….MPBN is holding a special premiere night for its membership on Thursday, January 31st at 7 PM at the Alamo Theater in Bucksport. MPBN’s Charles Beck will be on hand to welcome attendees and introduce John Gordon. A meet and greet will be held immediately following the show for Gordon to relate his experiences filming the episode and answer any questions from attendees.” (Jessica may attend, pending the logistics of motherhood, small-business owner, wife, travel and two needy dogs!).

I have not seen the results of my “acting” efforts (trust me, I’m using the term VERY loosely, here). But, I remain confident in the words of the producer, director and crew, “Don’t worry about it, we’re gonna make you look like Robert DeNiro!” Man, you gotta like their confidence.

c'mon, tell us what you're a thinkin'!
