    Thanks everyone for making it such a fun day. Thanks especially to Dave who ask me to help lead and Debbie who volunteered to help lead, sweep, and navigate. Denise, I love the photos. The 3 turtles in the snow is my favorite. Thanks for posting.

    Denise, Thanks for posting the photos! Lots of great shots of art, food markets, the ceiling of 30th St. Station, the staircase at the Bourse, the skyline from different angles--lots of interesting shots. I wonder if I can make one wallpaper on my computer?

    Wow! Great group to share one of the first sunny days in Philly with. Thanks to Martha and Dave for this well thought out and unique view of our city. Those of you who were interviewed by the guy making the What Makes You Happy film, here is a 24-hr video dancing happy to Pharrell Williams. Enjoy!

    I enjoyed walking with you all. You were a great group! Thanks for posting the photos, Denise. I love the picture of the phone booth--I don't remember seeing it. You captured Independence Hall very nicely.

    Weather is shaping up fine for this hike! Snow and ice melting from the sidewalks should continue tomorrow. Please remember to meet indoors at the 30th Street entrance of the Train Station (on the west side). There is a lot of construction on the 29th street side.

    If you are "on the fence" about attending and may cancel, please do so tonight or by tomorrow morning. Someone on the wait list and this is a big group! Thanks!!!!

    I will be attending as a PTC member, not a Meet Up member - if there is anyone on the wait list they can move into the spot.
