I stiched together some photos.

I went to the Star Wars Exhibit at the Science Museum of Minnesota and they allowed photography.
Living in Como Park is great. I am within walking distance from a conservatory, a zoo, a lake, a golf coarse, a wonderful natural woods, and many, many activities that are going on almost nightly.
Como Park is almost too much of a good thing judging from the traffic and parking congestion.
I just wrote about joining a group of people called the Como Park Alliance on my comopark.us website.

My wife, Ann Mayhew, and I went to a Schweiss Reunion in Minnesota the first Saturday in August, 2008. Ann’s mother was a Schweiss and had lots of brothers and sisters. Dick Schweiss has a Schweiss genealogy website if you want the total picture.
To see photos and videos of the Schweiss reunion go to our Schweiss Reunion web site. You can sign up and have your own page where you can upload pictures and tell us about yourself and your family.
I went to help with the Burdock Bust behind the Como Park Pool this morning at 9 am. I decided to video tape what they were doing instead and write it up for my COMOPARK.US website. The video can be seen by clicking below.

EcoPartners youth crew, Community Service Stars (from METP), and Jonna’s summer Youth Job Corps crew did some digging of burdock plants today, but mostly removed burdock flower heads to keep them from reseeding in the Como Woodland Outdoor Classroom project site.
The Como Woodland Outdoor Classroom project site is located just west of the Como Park swimming pool parking lot.
Kare 11 just featured a video of the Como Woodland Outdoor Classroom on Minnesota Bound (click the link to watch it). The Classrood segment start about 12 minutes into the show.
The weather was perfect. The food and drink were plentiful. We all had a great time.
Ann Mayhew gave me a copy of her speech that introduces everyone who came to the Schweiss reunion (click to read it).
I hope Dick Schweiss is able to enjoy what he had to miss because of a cancelled flight. Be sure to check out his Schweiss genealogy website (click on the link).
