Have you ever wondered how news crews get such good shots from a helicopter? How they can zoom in on a backyard while flying in a machine that rattles your teeth? Well, Huell goes in the air with Helinet to see the latest in cutting edge helicopter mounted cameras. You'll be amazed at how close they really can get and you may never walk around in your underwear in your backyard again!

Tuesday @ 7:30PM -- "Ferguson's Shells"

Huell's off to Wilmington to visit Ferguson's Marine Specialties, which is owned and operated by Ralph Ferguson and his daughter, Lupe. Once inside, Huell is literally surrounded by beautiful seashells from all over the world. Ferguson's has a wonderful, authentic, old-time feel to it.

Located 5,300 feet up in the San Jacinto Mountains above Palm Springs, Idyllwild offers a well-balanced mixture of natural, cultural and historic wonders.

Thursday @ 7:30PM -- "Tear Drop"

Step back in time with Huell as he visits a weekend gathering of classic teardrop trailers. A little more than eight feet long, they sleep two and have a built-in kitchen on the back.

Friday @ 7:30PM -- "Hollywood Ladies"

Huell visits with five ladies who were all actresses in the 40s and who have remained friends and walked together every Saturday for 50 years.

Saturday @ 5:00PM -- "Fairplex Railroad Museum"

Fairplex Pomona's historical train exhibit is the only place in the world to see both the largest steam engine and the largest diesel locomotive ever to ride the rails. The Union Pacific's 594-ton "Big Boy" shares the spotlight with the Union Pacific Centennial DD40X diesel powered locomotive, which measures nearly 100 feet in length. The exhibit is open free of charge to the general public the second weekend of each month.

Saturday @ 5:30PM -- "Griffith Park Live Steamers"

Huell goes to Griffith Park to enjoy a day of riding the rails with the Los Angeles Live Steamers. Founded in 1956 by train enthusiasts for the purpose of educating people in railroad history, the club operates 71/2" gauge model trains for the general public from 11:00 am - 3:00 pm every Sunday. You'll get a real kick out of these little beauties.

Sunday @ 7:00PM -- "Dental Museum"

The Orange County Dental Society has an impressive collection of vintage dental objects housed in its Dental Museum in Orange. Huell sees firsthand what a visit to the dentist might have been like decades ago as he examines display after display of chairs, tools and other devices. There are items dating back to the 19th century, and even a denture belonging to George Washington by some accounts.

Sunday @ 7:30PM -- "Egg Collection"

Have you ever wondered what one of the largest collections of eggs in the world looks like? Well the San Bernardino County Museum has just such a collection. Huell takes a close up look and some very beautiful and very unusual eggs.
