I tried voting in the link provided but there's a problem: did not go through. Filled out the ballot form. But the very last question/putting in the code puzzle # did not show what so ever!?! OH, WELL I hope the legendary Theatre-Drama Actor Johnathin Frid will be nominated for the Canadian Walk of Fame. Mr. FRID is quite the Mysterious Thriller-bite Threatre Actor.
