Hey thanks Richard. That was the problem.
Sorry, I am new to command line and cron jobs. 
Was probably a newb question, however, now it is saying that my database user is not allowed access.
I have a mysql connection inside my script that reads the database to get user email addresses to send a reminder email to.

Is there supposed to be a call or directive to load mysql in my command line as well?
Man this is frustrating.

Much thanks for your input!
