Random Facts

If you are ever in Chicago, look up the Museum of Holography. A little known museum in an out-of-the-way part of town, it is well worth a visit. There are small, pocket sized holographic pictures that are amazing. And then there are rooms where you walk in and experience life-size holograms that will blow your mind. I visited twenty-some years ago so I don't know what exhibits they have now, but you can look it up on Google.

I was a student at Kent State on May 4th 1970, when the Ohio National Guard shot at students, killing four. (I know, I am giving away my age.)

I was born on my father's birthday. I was also born on Arlo Guthrie's birthday. Does anyone remember the "Motorcycle Song"?
Has anyone else seen the movie "Alice's Restaurant"? That was my generation... crazy but wonderful!

I love to learn about new things. In my huge collection of books I have 12 of the "Dummies" series and 14 of the "Complete Idiot's Guide" series. My favorite is "The Complete Idiot's Guide to Understanding Einstein". My father was a scientist and I always wanted to be a scientist, but in my generation girls were discouraged from pursuing math and science (I know, it's hard to believe now, but it was true).

That's all for today. If you are reading, thanks!

Being a visual person (I guess) I like a lot of pictures these eyewitness books are amazing and filled with great photos, illustrations, maps and charts and stuff. You may want to add some of these to your libraray.

cheers, S.
