We believe this poll is the easiest way for people to let us know if you plan on attending the May 13th event in Maggie's Garden in memory of JB "TLOZ LInk5" Hehman. The hours of service are from 10:00AM to 12Noon. We are working out the details, but refreshments will likely be served immediately following the project.

Please let us know via the poll if you will be there and how many people will be joining you.

There is no need to announce who you are. Just PLEASE use this poll to respond and let us know if you will attend this event. We have four days and it is extremely important that we get an estimated head count.

I think I'll have another warm body.

I'll take the PATH in so you can count on me being there.

I do plan to bring a camera (artistry not guaranteed).

Bravo, ManhattanKnight, thank you!

Now is a good opportunity to send positive vibes from Oz for a perfect day on Saturday, when we can finally reinforce our collective love for JB in a tactile way and celebrate the realisation of a perpetual reminder of JB's love of his city in Maggie's Garden.

I'm very sad that I can't be there in person, but I'll certainly be with you in spirit and I'll be thinking of you all and be content that I was able help a little. I'm thousands of miles away but I know I''m going to feel as if I'm really close at 10.00 a.m. on Saturday because of the amazing atmosphere generated by the inspirational efforts of certain members of this virtual community to make this happen.

May the sun gods shine.

Oh it's such a perfect day,
I'm glad I spent it with you.
Oh such a perfect day,
You just keep me hanging on,
You just keep me hanging on.

I think I will be there.

I do not know 100% because of work this weekend, but I will try and make it.

Full moon tonight and it looks like a break in the heavy rains will make for a terrific planting day on Saturday ...

Tomorrow it will be sunny in the morning - because I say so!

Anyway, just got off the phone with Brian at NYRP. Coffee and donuts will be provided by NYRP as will water. The plaque is not ready, but a tempoary will be there for us to have closure with this project and a prope send off.

We will be planting - so be prepared.

I'm kind of buzzin' on all of this. It's going to be great!
