Default very cool

that's very cool man... giving...how many have called you for needing service and how many have you called you up after they have seen the news?

Did you call the news and tell them or did someone else do that? Still thats pretty cool idea. good job

Great Job Andy.

This act of generosity and the Meals on Wheels volunteering is appreciated by all. You won't hear it often, but you are a GREAT man. "All that goes unseen will be seen".

God Bless You.

John

Congrats, i was on the news before when I received my 3000$ Summer Company Grant in 2006. I don't know if I can find a clip of that somewhere but I wish I could.

Andy that is fantastic!

Can you give us some insight into all of this? How did the press find out about your community involvement? Did you send them out a press release?

What kind of reaction have you gotten since that went out on the air?

Yeah, I should've given more details. I had an ad on craigslist offering free lawn service to anyone disabled/ old, etc who couldn't afford it and also the "GreenCare for Troops" that I learned about from this forum. Someone from the news channel saw it and called me and asked to do the story. Of course I said yes! I recieved lots of calls from people needing help, people wanting to help me, and a couple people wanting to pay me for service. My pastor saw it and is showing it to the church on sunday for labor day so who knows?

I was on the news 3 years ago.

I was with my friend at the local bar & it was the night the ban on smoking took place.

My friend gave his speech & I gave the camera a drunken, "wtf is that" look, I looked soooo gone. LMAO

My friend has the recording of it!!
