KX4AC  Carl : can pass through. There are interactive fountains and surf that crashes at 
KX4AC  Carl : your command.  All-in-all a fun exhibit. 
KX4AC  Carl :    However, I guess I should have worn a mask, because the Saturday after 
KX4AC  Carl : I got home I came down with an awful cold.  I am sure I must have caught it 
KX4AC  Carl : at the parks.  I missed last week's net because I just wanted to get to bed
