    A friend of mine who is a publicist invited me to a house in Telluride in 2009 to have fun in the snow. There was my friends family and another family who I had never met before. My friend and the man from the other family were also close.
    So there’s three families there and my friend told me another family was showing up the next morning. The next morning two women and a man all dressed very city like showed up and seemed very serious, but nice. One of the women sat and spoke with everyone while the man just stood off to the side not speaking to anyone, I found this odd.
    Then, about an hour later Tom Cruise, Katie Holmes and Suri all showed up. Suri and my daughter immediately began rolling around with one another having a good ol’ time. Come to find out the other family is Katie Holmes extended family who my friend is associated with.
    I was shocked.
    My friend then told me “this is Tom Cruise’s house.” To say the least it was very funny as my wife was in total shock and spent the rest of the week with Katie, Suri and our daughter. It was a blast.
    Tom Cruise is the nicest person in the world and very intelligent. I don’t agree with some of his beliefs but he is a very genuine man and a gracious host.
    We were there for a week with people in and out and it was one of the most interesting vacations I’ve ever had.
    Go figure.

    Howdy would you mind letting me know which web host you’re using? I’ve loaded your blog in
    3 completely different internet browsers and I must say this blog loads a lot faster then most.
    Can you recommend a good hosting provider at a honest price?
    Many thanks, I appreciate it!
