    Most people have a claim to fame, mine is that I was on a childrens programme about 15 years ago as an extra (it was that exciting that I can't even remember the name of it!!!! big_smile)
    Ohhh and my husband met the chuckle brothers, does that count??

    What is your claim to fame?

      My husband and I went on the Dr Laura show about....hmmm....ten years ago, I think. Lots of fun.

      I've had some short stories published, but perhaps not on the "fame" level as far as I'd like hahaha

    I won 2 Ducks Unlimited skeet-shooting competitions!

    I also made the front page of the paper for saving a horse from EEE.

    I was on the TV news for creating and hosting a Renaissance festival at our local high school, complete with real horses and jousting "knights."

    I won several teaching awards: Best Teacher, Most Knowledgeable Teacher, Most Interesting Teacher, Most Inspiring Teacher, and Most Humorous Teacher.

    As Randy Godwin would say, I'm a legend...in my own mind! lol

    I don't really have a claim to fame but I did have my photo taken with the Queen Mother and it was  printed in the local paper in celebration of her 80th birthday.

        I was only very young and my next door neighbour served on the Royal Yacht so his family were invited to see the Queen Mother board the Yacht. She passed by many of the yachtsmen's families and it just so happened that we were photographed with her because she stopped to talk to my neighbour's family. My parents have the photos and to be honest because I was so young I didn't really think much of the occasion!

    I was an extra in the horrible movie "Empire Records"- I also met Henry Winkler (The Fonz),Shannon (evil) Doherty and Pantera while modeling in NC, I was famous for about a day when the agency commercial aired.

    Other than that the only time I was in the paper was when a murder happened in my parking lot and I tried to save the victim. Not much to be proud of there considering he passed.

        Seriously? You must be a fan of Liv Tyler.....outside the store towards the end. I'll include the link. It's at 2:02 and I am the girl with the ponytail and big hoop earrings.....Are you gonna be my first groupie?

        It was filmed in Wilmington, North Carolina and alot of fun. Paid a whooping $50.00, but it was cool!

          No, I'm not a Liv Tyler fan. I just like the oddity to the movie, not to mention, it touches on many different aspects of life in itself. smile

          Thank you for the info. I'll have to check the movie out. I've watch it a few dozen times, but I'll look. smile Much appreciated. smile

    Claim to fame?

    Well, I was one of 18 reality show contestants chosen for a new show that was to air on CBS in early 2005.  It was called Nightmare on Elm St: Real Nightmares, hosted by Robert Englund. The pilot was completed but when it got time for the air date, Jan 15, 2005, CBS decided to pull the plug on it.

    There were 18 chosen to film their worst nightmare/phobias in a re-enactment. Mine was fear of heights....you can read about it in my hubs.  I suffered from PTSD for several weeks afterward, but was glad I did the challenge.  Plus, got 2 all expense paid trips to LA! Learned the ropes of reality TV, too.

    Great experience, too bad it won't ever air.
