Just talked with Reggie and he had a phenomenal time at the book signing event last night thanks to Greg Gorman. Reggie said he met a lot of great people and took a lot of photos. He’s going to try to email me one or two to put on the site until he gets back. PHOTOS
In any event, if you were at the party on Wednesday, please leave a comment so we can live vicariously through Reggie’s amazing life!

Tonight was another great night at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo!
I started out with the live stock show and all of the other fun things. Oh, my God! Did I enjoy the FOOD. Everything was to die for. Deep fried Oreos, steak burgers, foot-long sausage sandwiches, giant cinnamon rolls with lots of icing. But don’t take my word for it, check out the photos for yourself.
I went to the Rodeo to see Martina McBride. She was great and the music was terrific! She really sang her heart out. She sang all of her best songs and the crowd loved it. Of course, so did I. Martina loves Houston and she looks forward to her show here every year.
I know why she loves Houston. I feel it every time I go out. So many people here have been so kind to me. I’m thankful to be in a great city like Houston. It made me feel so good when people I never met came up to be today and spoke kind words to me. You will see them in my photos. People like that are heroes to me!
I spoke with Mari Garcia administrator of Gillian Anderson’s Official Web Site, I was asked sometime ago to help out and to contribute a doodle for NF, Inc’s Second National Doodle Day Auction. I was happy to post a blog and do what I can to be of help. Please check out the links and see your favorite Actors and actress and others who have support the fight against NF.
The auction will start on May 8 on eBay. So far there are two pages and more doodles will be added as they come in. Be sure and blog your favorite doodle.
NF, Inc. is raising money for neurofibromatosis through their annual National Doodle Day! As part of NF Awareness month, celebrity doodles will be available for auction on eBay.
Neurofibromatosis is a genetic disorder that affects one in every 2,500 births. NF is more common than Cystic Fibrosis, Muscular Dystrophy and Huntington’s Disease combined. Funds raised from the Doodle Day auction will go to support education, advocacy, coalitions, and research for treatments and a cure.

I received a wonderful letter from my friend from years back. At the time I met Mike Moncrief, he was Senator Mike Moncrief for the State of Texas. And now he is Mayor Mike Moncrief of Fort Worth. He and his wife Rosie have been very supportive in everything I have been involved in. You will see that in the photos in my picture section on Flickr. Mike and Rosie also wear one of my JUST ASK t-shirts. I’m honored to call them my friends!
Here is the email that he sent me today:
“Hey Reggie, I just visited your website and i was most impressed. The ongoing
challenge of raising awareness of NF and search for a cure is made easier by your efforts. By the way, I wear my Tshirt every chance I get and have had numerous folk come up to me and ask about it. Keep up the great work and you are more than welcome to post this email on your blog.
Today I went to the Harris County Court House and filed JUST ASK! as a DBA in the STATE OF TEXAS. I am so happy! This is terrific news because it makes me feel that what I’m doing is very real: To the State of Texas and to the people who are affected by neurofibromatosis.
Not only did I file a DBA but I also opened a business checking account at Compass Bank under the name “Just Ask!” The checks will have my logo on them (drawing of my face) and “Just Ask!” Continue reading
People are beginning to JUST ASK! This is GREAT! Friday night my family and I went to one of our favorite restaurants. Taste Of Texas.
We had the best time I can remember. It was 15 of us. Sisters, nieces, nephews, brother sister in-law,and Mom. Of course ME ME ME! We all sported out JUST ASK t-shirts. We felt like stars. We got a lot of smiles and people commenting on our t-shirts. Lots of you ASKED. I thank all of you that wanted to know. It was a wonderful family night for us. Thanks to the Staff of The Taste Of Texas. You did a TREMENDOUS job as always!
NZ bee compound gives tumours the buzz-off
A bee product from New Zealand has been shown to suppress tumours in mice, says a study presented to a scientific conference in the United States.
The researchers at a German hospital tested propolis against tumours that can occur in the nervous system and on skin in a condition called neurofibromatosis. Continue reading
Last night I was invited to speak with Net 2 about my website, and neurofibromatosis. Wow! What a tremendous experience it was FOR ME. A great group that was very interested in neurofibromatosis and my campaign. I was able to share what it’s like to live with nf , and how I deal with it. I learned a lot from the group as well as I hope they learned more about nf. I feel blessed that the group received my message. Meeting Net 2 was just what I needed. Maybe if I hang around the group, I can learn more tips about making the perfect site for neurofibromatosis.
GREG GORMAN – World famous photographer, great supporter of Reggie Bibbs and one hell of a nice guy!!!
Meet my friend Greg Gorman. I have been friends with Greg for 20 years. I met Greg through Carolyn Farb when Greg came to do a special exhibition in Galveston.
Greg is a world famous photographer who shoots a lot of celebrities like John Waters, Alfred Hitchcock, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrisson, Janis Joplin, Robert De Niro, Johhny Depp, Beyonce, Sharon Stone, David Bowie, Sophia Loren, Marlon Brando and Reggie Bibbs.
I just wanted to drop you a line and say how great you are! I have NF1 too and although it’s not too severe other members of my family have it pretty bad. Having the disease isn’t fun and the tumors cause a lot of pain. It doesn’t help that doctors over here in the UK know so little about it, I feel I’m teaching them sometimes! It’s put me off having children so I think I’ll stick to dogs!
I saw your video on You Tube and had a look at your website. It’s very cool and I loved the photos too. You have a gorgeous family and a good group of friends.
If one thing NF has taught me it’s never to judge anyone on the way they look and I get so mad when I see it happen on the tv or in the street. Anyway, congratulations on all that you have achieved and for making people more aware. You are an inspiration!
Yesterday, I took my nephew to the bus stop. We stopped at a traffic light. You know that feeling you get when someone is looking at you? I felt that. When I look to my left, I saw a car with four people looking at me laughing.
I was bewildered. Why is someone’s outward appearance funny? I can understand a person being afraid to look at me, but to think I am funny? I do not understand.
Has this ever happened to you? If it has, I am really sorry. Please write and tell me about it. Believe me; I will sympathize with how you feel.
This Web site will be good because we can encourage people not to look at our outward appearances, but at our hearts.
