Glad you did it too - these are really fun to read!

DC and London sound great to me! I hope one of them is coming up soon for you.

That's a lot of things you have done on that list. What famous person have you met? Avellino? Cool, my great-grandparents are from the area...Montefalcione and Lapio.

G: I've met three famous people - Hulk Hogan in Florida while I was on vacation - he was filming in the lobby of our hotel (my kids, at the time were big WWF fans so asked for his autograph and he introduced himself to me; Bill Cosby, at a BC commencement - very nice man - funny even in person; the last was an actor (can't remember his name) actually we rode an escalator together in Liberty House at Ala Moana (long, long ago) - he starred in a TV series about either being a single dad or an uncle raising cute twins (one a girl with pigtails and freckles across her nose) ... the memory is going..

Oh- it was Brian Keith, played in Family Affair. How awful - I just goggled him - he committed suicide in 1997.
