Welcome to the New Year

Ok, so I know that I that I am a few days late on this but better late than never. I was just looking as I logged on and seen that the current version of wordpress that I use is called “Parker” even though its not after our beloved Parker Williams aka David Hart but ironic to say the least.

There will be a new Heat Challenge coming in the near future. I was going to try to get one up in December but with the holidays needless to say I did not get it done. Now that things are calming down, keep looking for it and test your Heat Knowledge.

Jenny McDonald, the director of the Covington Visitor Bureau has agreed to fill us in on some of the things she seen during a recent visit with a collector who has several treasures from the show. I am looking forward to hearing what she seen.

It is our hopes that we get to see more progress for a Heat Reunion this year. Please keep looking here and on the Fan Page on Facebook.

Thanks for your support for this site. I am glad that there is a place for fans of the show to go. I am hoping to update a few things over the next year. So if any other fans are interested in contributing to helping make this site better please let me know. Keep watching and remember Seasons 1, 4,5, and 8 are all out on DVD as well as the 24 hour marathon. Until next time, (may the force be with you)!!! wait that’s star wars. Oh here ya go. “Parker, Answer that phone.”
