Places part 2
I used to have a bucket list with things I really dreamed about doing, but I’ve realized bucket lists are only for people in the movies. Now I only do things on my bucket list vicariously or in my dreams. When I was young I didn’t have a bucket list. If I wanted to do something I just did it.

Medoff digs deep into the lives of five exceptionally ordinary people, and turns their trivial work dramas into humane comedy. It’s also a brilliant how-to book about what it takes to be a great colleague and a good manager. —David Plotz, CEO
The Rubber Chicken Museum almost didn't make the list. It looked like it might be too exciting. Maybe I would go there when I have a tooth ache.
Isaac Newton Tree
My great grandfather was named Isaac Newton Dalrymple. I will visit this tree in Cleveland in July of 2018. While there I plan to think, eat a fig Newton, have a glass of apple cider, and drop an apple on my head. Or maybe that will be too much for me.
This is not what it seems. It sits alone. Vandals decorated the small building to look like this. The building is empty.
Unfortunately it is in Texas. I'll have to wait until the state turns Blue.
Who wouldn't want to see this? The tree that owns itself.

Little Diomede Island village:
Today there are about 30 buildings on the island. A washeteria has been built to serve the community with a laundromat and showers. A clinic for basic health care is located on the upper floor of the washeteria building. The island also has a school. There is no bank or restaurant. Snacks, clothing, diapers, and other items are ordered from the Anchorage Walmart.
This place: I’ve been there and can recommend it highly.
