Andrea, you know what happens when you aren't present at the meetings - We Talk About You ;-) You've been warned...and I have LOTS of things to talk about where you're concerned. Just sayin'. Since I will be in town, I'll be there.

You're right Eileen, I won't be at the meeting. I will be in Russia. Okay, not exactly Russia. I'll be at the Russian River. Close enough. Okay, not that close to Russia. At least I'm going somewhere. I'm leaving tomorrow to make a quick trip to L.A. first. Since wifi at the river sucks so I can't Skype into the meeting I will have my own version of the KGB reporting back regarding your conversations. Don't check anyone for wires.

I'll be there. I've invited Vivian from Elk Grove. She inquired about the best airline to fly to Italy. I'll bring some of my Italy stuff.

I'm bringing Alexis, who is going to Paris in Oct. for the first time. Any info, books, etc. would be appreciated.

Katbest book for Paris would be ones titled: London or Rome..... Andrea will get me for that one...... I'll see what I can dig up on Paris. I have loaner Rick Steves dvd's of France/Paris if your friend wants them. Larry.....3 realistic "nice" choices: SFO to London to Rome via British Airways SFO to Paris to Rome via Air France
SFO to Dulles to Rome via United Many strongly dislike the hassle of going to SFO to fly out (perfectly understandable)but US to Europe in one shot really eliminates the odds of domestic flight delays causing missed connection, lost luggage....late getting into London or Pairs, no big deal...flights almost on the hour from those airports to places in Italy...miss a connection with a delay on the Sacramento to Atlanta flight and you might be stuck over night in Atlanta waiting for the next "daily" European bound flight.

Well, we're home! We both had great trips. We hope to come to the meeting, but unfortunately, I came home with a bad cold. So, I'll have to see how I'm feeling tomorrow. Monte may have to work. But, who knows, we may both show up!

Susan and Monte, I'll bring a couple of those 'won't keep us from getting sick' cheapo masks that you two can wear...Susan/for germs, and Monte/just for our amusement ;-) I'm glad your trips went well! Larry and Vivian - FWIW, we travel on American Airlines to Europe from SFO, non-stop...Paris, Rome, Zurich...there's a great hotel we stay at (across the street from SFO) - they have their own shuttle, allow you to park your car there for the best price around (and believe me, I've checked!), and it's great for early flights! I'll tell y'all about it Saturday! I look forward to seeing everyone!

I just got home from the Russian River. Sorry I missed the meeting. I'm not sorry I missed the heat. We went to a Civil War reenactment on Saturday and we were cold!! No offense to my Sacramento Home Boys and Girls, but I'm just seeing that Atlanta was THE place to be on Saturday. Ed AND Ron-In-Rome? I would've paid to be there!! See you all next month. David, did you get tickets for DC yet?
