To The Huntington

We went to the Huntington Library with Brian and Jan Finch.  We saw NASA’s Orbit Pavillion and it was quite interesting. Apparently some musicians looked at the missions of the satellites and developed “sounds” for that particular mission so when the satellites are overhead, the music is played form any of 24 speakers located on the inside of the sphere. Join the fun!

While walking through the gardens Brian and Paul stumbled up the “sausage tree” and our thoughts immediately went to Hans!

We walked the Japanese and Chinese gardens before heading for home and sushi!  Brian attacks the sake and sushi!  Great fun for all.

Oh oh....

Oh oh….

We then headed for home to watch a Hallmark 2016 Christmas Movie called “A Christmas Melody” before watching Star Trek.

“A Christmas Melody” revolves around Kristin (Lacey Chabert), a beautiful, stylish divorcee who is a talented clothing designer and her young daughter. Kristin has just had to close her small Manhattan boutique to return to her Ohio home town and live in her parents’ former home. It’s an adjustment for Kristin and Emily – especially when she runs into her former high school rival Melissa (Mariah Carey). Melissa is president of the PTA and tries to make Kristen feel as unwelcome as possible. Kristen and Emily struggle to find their new normal with the help of the music teacher Danny (Brennan Elliott) and Kristin’s Aunt Sarah (Kathy Najimy), the local coffee shop owner. With a little holiday magic and music, Kristin and Emily find that home is where the heart is.

Cute movie...

OK Star Trek… Here we come!
