    My Mom was a great cook and one of the requirements before leaving home to go to college was I had to establish cooking competency.

    Oh dear. But think I saw him once on one of my trips. He was really happy and had steak to eat every day. I'm pretty sure about that, yeah.

    My question is, would you name at least one time (more than one is welcome, if you wish) you would like to have been that fly on the wall to see/listen to, etc an event or events that would be so cool to have witnessed?

    I'll start by saying being present at the Beatles Sgt. Peppers album sessions at Abbey Road Studios. Also, at Mission Control for the entire flight of Apollo 11.

    Any takers?
    In keeping with your thought, I would like to be a fly on the wall when Pink Floyd was recording Shine On You Crazy Diamond... a song about Syd Barret and also at Abbey Road Studios. When coincidentally in walks a physically and mentally disheveled Syd Barret that they had not seen for years and they did not, at first, recognize.
