    Let me thank you all for joining me for this fun Sunday morning tour of Getty Villa. To say that our spirit was high would be a gross understatement. We had a blast would be a more accurate description. .

    In a typical museum tour, we expect to learn something about antiquity, but our inquisitive nature made it a thoroughly informative experience in more than one ways. .

    Let me take this opportunity to thank the Getty educator for sharing her expert knowledge in ancient Roman behavior with us. It was quite satisfying. .

    Next Saturday, we plan to pay Brewery artists a visit to check out their latest creations. I look forward to seeing you all there.

      We both post interests and I'm a smart ass for it (shrug) Maybe it's a case of contrasting principles.
