Stargate Atlantis - NBC Nightly News: on set of SGA

Tonight while watching the NBC nightly news, they ran a news story about the US dollar vs the Canadian dollar, and mentioned that many US tv shows are filmed in Canada.

NBC News showed a clip of Martin Wood directing a scene from SGA, and later, the NBC reporter walked down the hallway of one of the SGA sets talking with a money consultant regarding the exchange rate between the US and Canada.

Here's a link from NBC News for a video clip:

It's Walk Week!!

Oct. 2nd, 2007 at 7:01 AM

As many of you know, October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month...which is one of the reasons I'm glad the New York Avon Walk happens in October... October 6-7 this year, to be exact. :)

The "We Walk" team is 10 people strong and has been training for several months now... and we're ready to get going bright and early Saturday morning!

If you'd like to make a donation and help me reach this year's fundraising goal of $20,000, you can do so at:


We've also got a lot of TV starting up around now... which may seem like a non-sequiter... until I point out that I launched a big batch of 50+ teddy bear and boxing glove auctions to support our fundraising... many of them featuring people in some of our favorite TV shows: Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met Your Mother), Joe Flanigan (Stargate: Atlantis), the cast of NUMB3RS, American Ferrera (Ugly Betty), Zach Braff (Scrubs), Michael C. Hall (Dexter), Hayden Panettiere (Heroes), Eric Millegan (Bones), T.R. Knight (Grey's Anatomy) and MANY more! We've also got some great people who have nothing to do with new TV... like Ian McKellen, Henry Winkler, Simon Pegg and a bunch of comic and Buffy/Angel/Firefly folks.

Please check out all the auctions here:


Bid early, bid often... and please help spread the word to anybody you think would be interested! (I'm disappointed that Ian McKellen's bear is at just $11... I'm counting on him pulling ahead and giving Viggo a run for his money!)
