I was hoping to find someone to travel with from the New York area on April 12th to the Radisson.

Sorry Deborah-was there last April. I'm going to Israel this Sunday.

Hi Wendy and Dennis, love the sense of humor and I look forward to meeting you. I could be interested in some art galleries.

Wendy Cobham-Miller Mar 19, 2014 at 04:54 PM

I Stephen and Diane. I am Dennis Miller's best wife....lol

Wendy Cobham-Miller Mar 19, 2014 at 04:45 PM

Anyone interested in hitting any arts galleries. I am a landscape quilter and love to see other artists (any craft) work.

Diane Bianchetta Mar 19, 2014 at 10:33 AM

Hi all, I am arriving from NH on the 5th at 9pm. I reserved a room at the Radisson where our group is staying. I hope to find someone to share the room/cost. I also was originally scheduled for Oct 13th last year.
Stephen Yee Mar 19, 2014 at 11:14 AM

Hello Diane, no worries of governmental shutdowns this time, just snow. :>)
Diane Bianchetta Mar 19, 2014 at 01:51 PM

Thanks, Stephen. Spring HAS to arrive, along with the Cherry Blossoms! A lot to look forward to.

Dennis Miller Mar 14, 2014 at 04:30 PM

Anyone wish to talk about the Discover D.C. program?
Stephen Yee Mar 17, 2014 at 02:29 AM

Our evening performance for Thursday will be at the Ford's Theatre. Playing that evening will be The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee.
Dennis Miller Mar 18, 2014 at 03:26 PM

I have heard of the Putnam Spelling Bee on T.V. newsclips. Spelling never was one of my strong points so it doesn't sound real exciting to me.

Dennis Miller Mar 06, 2014 at 07:33 PM

Hello Stephen. My wife and I are from Edmonton, Alberta Canada and we too are looking forward to the Cherry Blossom Festival. We are staying one extra day on either end of the actual tour. I too am looking forward to taking lots of pics with my new camera.
