  "
Keep up the good work with stretching people's  minds      
and interests, "
             
Debbie Breech; Pacific Palisades, California.
 

"...it was wonderful, wonderful, it was wonderful! Thank-you!" 
                                       
retired gentleman from Racine, Wisconsin, 
                                                           with a group with 3 generations taking part

"The group is still talking about our visit!  All the way home they kept talking 
about different things that they saw and did.  The staff and I also enjoyed our visit!
I am still thinking about that edge matching!  We will put together another trip later
to the Top Museum.  It was wonderful how you spent time with all of us. Your 
dedication and patience is incredible.    So thank you!"
