  •  I visited DC several times in my teens when my (0+ / 0-)

    mother moved there.  All I wanted to see then was the new Air & Space Museum - yes, I know that dates me!
    Just last year I finally got a chance to go back. Since I had to get work done there was only one afternoon/evening to actually play tourist.  I spent about 8 hours walking the mall, seeing all those things I'd ignored before; the Washington, Jefferson, and Lincoln memorials. We saw the new WWII memorial,as well as those for Korea & Vietnam that hadn't existed way back then.  A bonus was that the cherry trees were in full bloom and the mall was swamped with kids of all ages on spring break trips with their schools! The kids annoyed my co-workers, but it thrilled me to see a significant fraction of them actually enjoying and learning from the experience!

    -7.38, -5.38 (that's a surprise)

    What is the sound of one hand clapping? Just listen!

    There are no luggage racks on hearses.
