Visiting Intel, Computer History Museum, Apple Co., Fry's, Weird Stuff store, Bob Rosenblooms computer collection - big day

This has been a great day here in Silicon Valley with visits to "The Computer History Museum", Intel Museum, Weird Stuff and Fry's computer stores and Bob Rosenbloom's computer collection. This is the kind of day historical computer collectors dream of - my wife and I were sure having a good time with Lyle Bickley touring us around the area. Ended the day with fresh fish meal at the "Fish Market" restaurant in Mountain View, CA.

        David tells in his own words about the visit to great things in Silicon Valley.
