    wow! I know about CJ but never met him! It’s so cool to watch the live video clips!

    May I ask you? Is CJ okay with that? About his butt shown on the clip?

    I think I saw Dino while playing the baskeball, is that him?

    Thanks for sharing! It sure brings us a big smile!

    Have you forgotton to request Bernard Bragg’s autograph? If you did not, then it will be your loss!


    I think you guys are too jet lagged from all the 24/7 parties. You are excused for this.

    Looking forward to see many of your vlogs.

    Deb Ann, it is my another brother, James who pass the ball to CJ Jones. Find me yet? You can see me talking to CJ Jones. 😉 Be honest with you, he is fun person to play basketball and I am glad that I have a chance to play with him.

    White Ghost, actually, my dad (Jimactor) is a good friend with Bernard Bragg so they both email each other.

    Yes! I got YOU talking to CJ! Yes, yes, yes!! You got to have Bug on the video, too some time and yourself as well!

    Neato, you all had a good chance to play with him. He does look a lot of fun. 😉 You, guys are so lucky!

    One question….Was Bernard Bragg a friend with Gil Eastman? I think I’ve seen Bragg some where some time ago….By the way, Gil Eastman was my teacher, I wonder if Bragg has been to Gally, too to visit with Gil Eastman because I have seen that guy… maybe it’s him??

    Eastman and Bragg both worked with the NTD in the early years. They are one of the founders.
