    Hi guys! Great work on the Daily Goo, and on the relaunched site! Yesterday's Daily about a horse named "The Goo" inspired me to send you a pic of MY horse, JohnnyGoo. :o) (click on picture 1)

    And there my friend is a horse named Johnny Goo. . .that is something else. . .thanks for sharing that with us. . .pretty cool. . .

    And here's one from Fiona Sakki of Cambridge, MA . . .she writes. . .

    I just saw _World Music Awards_ second time around. The first time was when I wasn't really a "fan" so this rerun was very special to me. Anyhow, I have a question: Do you mind sharing with us what exactly was so funny while you were performing "Broadway"? Johnny was heroically fighting to suppress giggles (and you pulled off well!). C'mon, tell us. Ciao/Good nite/'morning Fiona*

    Thanks for the letter Fiona. . .If you watched the World Music Awards. . . It's a tracked show . . .no actual live performances. . . which they do almost all of the time in Europe. . .Monaco being no exception. . .so. . .we opted to actually sing to a track of the music . . . .but there were only 3 of us there and the track had a lot of keyboards on it. . . so we had our tour manager, David, play keyboards. . . or pretend to play keyboards. . .he doesn't actually know how. . . . pair that up with the fact that we just met the prince of Monaco and Michael Jackson was sitting about 40 feet away from us next to some supermodels and it just seemed funny. . . that's all. . . .no specific event. . . just a very very surreal evening in general. . .in fact a few evenings. . . . wow. . .you can catch repeats of the show all week on VH1. . . the next being on the 31st at 10 AM est. . . . . .cool. . . .

    Happy Birthday to Aolani Buckhout from Hadley, MA, Dena Fillippa from Crescent City CA, Kara Shemenski from Cincinnati, OH, Timea Csiszar from Munich, Germany, Twyla Barnett from Plainview, TX, Mallory Peters from Chatham, Canada and Michele Pittman from Houston, TX. . . .
