    If you are at all interested in flight/military/naval things the USS Midway museum is highly recommended. It's the most interesting museum I've ever been too, because it's a relatively modern aircra...

    Speaking of brands. Has anyone gone to a mall lately? Holy $%^& is it a ghost town over there! It's almost as if there has been a fundamental sea change in retail, or something.
