Road Trip: Great Lakes Science Center

We were on the road and decided to check out the Great Lakes Science Center in Cleveland, Ohio. This is a great place for children and the young at heart. You are sure to find something to entertaining here. The exhibits change frequently so check their website to see what's happening before you go.

Even before you step inside the center there is something to explore. The 168 foot long William G. Mather steamship is docked just outside. Built n 1925, the ship is now open for tours.

Inside there are plenty of hands on exhibits to teach and entertain you. The NASA Glen Visitor Center lets you experience living and working in space. You can learn all about the body at the BioMed Tech gallery. Our favorite area was the Science Phenomena galleries which had the most hands on exhibits in which to play.  Don't forget to catch a movie at the OmniMax Theater if you visit.

The highlight for our trip to the Great Lakes Science Center was the "Big Science Show" that was setup just outside. Fun with Mentos and liquid nitrogen! The performers made it all very enjoyable and a not to be missed experience.

NCL Norwegian Pearl Cruise to Alaska - The Haven Courtyard

If you ever have a chance to sail to Alaska, do it! If you can save up a little more to be able to stay in The Haven Courtyard on Norwegian Cruise Lines, do it! For our anniversary Peg and I decided we would take our first cruise to Alaska. NCL sales called us, last minute, and offered us a deal to upgrade to a penthouse in The Haven Courtyard aboard the Norwegian Pearl. We did and it was fantastic! The Bird of Paradise Courtyard Suite Room 14014 (an S5 level penthouse suite) would be our home for the seven day cruise which started in Seattle, Washington.

Photos from Craig Naff's Hotrod Body Shop with Ron Covell

It's not often that you get the chance to hang out with one of the world's best hotrod metal shapers, Craig Naff. Add to that the fact that Ron Covell, a fantastic metal fabricator and instructor, would be teaching a class in Craig's shop and you have the potential for a fantastic Saturday. I made the drive over to Craig's shop on the outskirts of Woodstock, VA early in the morning using Ron Covell's Basic Metal Shaping class as an excuse to get out of the house.
