Kabu:  You have to bring your own instrument, but we will have a place
where we all meet in the evenings to relax, play music, sing and do other

Sounds nice.  Not at first, but after we are further along with the
community and other facilities, we want to have a hospice for cryoncists
waiting to go into suspension.  I'm sure your wife's music and attention
will be very welcome.  Are you both signed up for cryonics?

Many people have asked for a place like this.  And as mentioned above, we
will have a nice one.

Mike Perry will be in charge of this.  I am sure he will plan something
very beautiful.

This is a good idea.  Perhaps you could coordinate it with Mike Perry to
bring some of your ideas to completion.
