Fascinating stuff. JFK looks so charming, almost a little rascally!

Sylvia, this is really very interesting stuff! The gloves Lincoln was wearing on the moment of the assassination are make me shiver.
I wish you a great week, while waiting for the new addition to your family! Blessings!

What Can I Say?
I'm interested in almost everything. Use to like to travel, but it's too expensive now. I take Tai Chi classes, swim, volunteer in a Jump-start program for pre-schoolers. I'm an avid reader and like nearly everyone these days I follow politics avidly. I'm a former teacher and Special Projects Coordinator for a Telecommunications company, Assistant to the President of a Japanese silicon wafer manufacturing company. Am now enjoying retirement -- most of the time. I have two daughters, one son-in-law and two sons scattered all over the country. No grandchildren.
