One of our biggest social things is going out to dinners.  We have a group of four couples from our church that we’ve been together forever.  And about every six weeks or so, one of the couples chooses the place.  We try all different ethnic places, and the stipulation is wherever they choose, the group goes.  So, if you don’t like Chinese food, suck it up, you’re going to go to the Chinese restaurant.  And it’s just a great social outlet.  One of the things my wife and I got into years ago—we were taking a trip, I think, around Lake Michigan, and we noticed all these lighthouses.  They’re all so beautiful; they’re in beautiful locations by the waterside.  And we thought, “Man, let’s see how many we can…”  So, we started kind of building our trips around where the lighthouses were.  So we’d drive around the coast, “Okay, we went all the way around Lake Michigan.  Well then, there’s Lake Superior, that’s a pretty big lake.”  So then we drove on the state side of Lake Superior.  Well, as of today, we’ve probably visited 150 lighthouses in about 15 different states all down the east coast from Maine to Florida, and it’s been fun.
