Alas sir Richard- Is that a CHICAGO BEARS necktie I see before me? Come let me clutch thee (It's Annan's fault!)

Outside the restaurant festivities

Olvera Street is always crowded with tourists.
Next STOP of the day......

The California Science Center for The Human Body IMax movie and a tour of the Body Worlds exhibit!

What is Body Worlds?
In case you can't tell from the pictures here, it is plastinated real dead bodies.  (Have to look at their web site to understand plastinated.)

Our classmates in the Chicago area will soon have the opportunity to see this amazing educational exhibit!

The spinal column and nerve passageways

The Lone Ranger NOT!
Hi Hooo Silver....NOT!

More like THE Skinned Ranger.

Be sure to click on these three pictures.

They are the 800 by 600 pixel free screen savers you can download from the Body Worlds website.

If you go to the Chicago exhibit be sure to ask for those Senior rates! 

Also be sure to rent the the audio devices for touring the exhibit.  Well worth the $2 senior rate.



Ken Solovy's daughter, daredevil JoAnne Riss is riding and balancing a high wire bicycle some 3 stories above the ground (note safety net just in case).


Ken chose to ride the mellower version of the high wire bicycle that uses a giant counterweight for stability (like the keel on a boat). 

He wants to make it to his 65th birthday on Valentines day 2005 - yes - February 14th!

During the last 3 Southern California & Chicago Mini's
we started compiling a master birthday list.
Namely WHEN do we each hit the dreaded Medicare age of 65. 
Can you believe it?
