    Hi,
    I first came into contact with Steve back in 1992 I believe it was on the old Prodigy internet service on their puppetry bulletin boards they had back then. That's also how I first started corresponding with the late great Jerry Juhl and Craig Shemin. I eventually met Steve for the first time when he invited me to the set of Muppet Treasure Island in 1995 since I was going to be in London anyway as part of my graduation gift from high school. I've since seen him a couple of times: once during my Henson college internship in 1999, and in 2002 when he was here in NYC for the unveiling of the Macy's Christmas windows performing Kermit.

    Not quite Newcastle, but not far away. Some of you may be interested to know that Louise Gold made her musical theatre debut in Sunderland in the autumn of 1974, in a production of Hair.....

    There really should be a UK Muppet Fan meet up, even if just an informal social event I'm sure it would be great fun.

    It all sounds great, I wish I had been in London at the time. If only it was in September I would have got to see kermit and steve too.
    I'm still hoping to see Louise Gold when I come to London though.

    And that idea of a meetup sounds great. I would love to meet some muppet fans if I was in London at the time. I tried to meet up with some people last time I was in London but it never happened.

    :)

    Hey Guys

    Muppets.com has finally updated there ''Kermits travels'' section and it now includes 4 pictures of Kermit in London, at the marathon, on the London Eye, in a red phone box, and in front of tower bridge ( although this one looks a bit imposed?).

    Nice to see it updated though.
