We drove through the busy streets of Cleveland OH to see the houses where Joe Shuster and Jerry Seigel lived. The first illustrated the Man of Steel and the second invented him. Posters of the first edition (April 1938) of Superman surround some of the front yard fence of Shuster’s house. The city also provided a nice plaque for being the birth place of Superman. What a kick!

If you’ve ever owned a metal one or played it then this is where it came from. The Original Kazoo Company was established in 1916 and the original tin making equipment is still in operation. It is located in the town of Eden NY. The factory is operated by SASI, a non-profit organization whose stated mission is to transform lives through creative opportunities and excellent supports for people with disabilities and special needs.
You will see through our pictures that we took a helicopter ride to see Niagara Falls. The tint on the helicopter windows may explain why all the pictures aren’t crystal clear. A poor excuse, Jorge!
