Some thoughts on touristing...

and more thoughts on working...
I'll admit, I didn't know who Josephine Baker was before I began my research, but I'm really happy I've had the opportunity to learn about her. She was a fascinating 20th century lady: A boundary-breaking and incredibly talented entertainer, war hero, spy, activist, American ex-pat, adoptive mother of 12 children from around the world with a complicated personal life that included love affairs with both men and women and 5 marriages. She even had a pet cheetah (jealous), which she enjoyed taking for walks down the Champs Elysee. Truly a character who led an amazingly full life - I definitely will not be short on content.
The next step for me is to clean up the Development data currently floating around in Spektrix so that we can start using the module immediately after it's released to us. Hopefully, that will be at the end of this month, if their week-long beta test goes well. From previous experience, a week seems kind of optimistic for a beta test, but we shall see.
By keeping fairly quiet and watching people interact as I was taking the minutes, I also learned about the social dynamics of the group - between Council members and with the staff. It was like a more actively engaged (and productive) sort of people watching.
