A good day for napping. Mark attended a lecture on “leadership Under Fire” by General Nick Halley.
Went to a show tonight. Karen Grainger bills herself as a vocal impressionist. She performed as Cher, Celine Dion, Dolly Parton, Shania Twain, Reba McEntire, and several more, both male and female. It was an entertaining show.

We attended a few lectures today. Dr. Wolff spoke about “Midway – the Unsung Heroes Who Saved the World.” Another speaker presented on “The Islands of Tonga.” We also attended a presentation on making several types of martinis: traditional, 007, and dirty. I was inspired to try one myself.
Tonight’s show was very good. Chris Watkins is a violinist who has turned classical music into quite an exciting show. He uses an electric Yamaha violin which has been decorated with over a thousand Swarovski crystals.
