    Well, you'll be a LOT closer to home! :)

    I've been to Kansas City just once (a medical meeting years ago) - famous for early jazz in the 1930s, e.g. Count Basie, Lester Young, Charlie Parker, and many others - a friend & I went to a 'blues club' one night - Dave :)

    In 1984 I went to the first digicon in Vancouver. There were hardly any people attending, just a smattering! But up on stage was George Lucas and co computer graphics guys! It was amazing to me! I had just finished 2 courses in computer graphics programming and design! I was SO psyched !!! A month later I broke my back:(.
    Oh well, my dream of laying down and using a computer has finally come true!:) You must be having a WONDERFUL time scifan, I'm not envious but it brought back a great memory!! Thank you for including us!:):)
