Just a reminder that I'm looking forward to speaking about A Sixties Story at the Lifelong Learning Institute's Lunch 'n' Learn on Wednesday, May 30. Here's some info:

Lunch starts about 11:45am. The lunch is in Room 464 at 5202 Old Orchard Road. Parking is free.

Here are directions:
If you're taking Edens expressway -- get off at Old Orchard Road and then turn right if you're coming from the north and left if you're coming from the south to get to the building.  You take the first right west of the expressway and then follow it to the 2nd building which is 5202. There is usually parking right outside but there is also a garage.  Signage is bad but you can definitely see the two buildings --- the building is just the furthest north and east.

Hope to see you there! It would be great to see some friends in the audience.

We're back ... traveling in Russia was amazing ...

Joe Maltese--a dear friend to so many of us

Joe's Sun-Times obituary

Joe Maltese was one of those larger-than-life men who was filled with joy and stories and kindness. Whenever we came into Andy's, there he was, always greeting us with a smile. No evening was complete without talking with him. He could talk on any subject and always be interesting. We will forever treasure the memory of the night were lucky enough to have dinner at the Maltese's. They made a great feast for us and Joe wove the story of his life in Chicago into it. We were blessed to know both Joe and Mimi. Our hearts go out to you Mimi. We will miss you, Joe, but hold you close in our hearts always.
