Home Safe

When we left home to meet the Emerald Princess in Cobh, Ireland, we knew the flooding in Colorado was bad, but we thought it was over. The next morning, the renewed flooding was so bad it was on the BBC news at Heathrow Airport. We live in the mountains just west of Boulder so, of course, we were worried about our house. As it turned out, we were able to reach our home without any problem and everything was as we left it. Others all around us were not so lucky.

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!!

Thank you to the Emerald Princess passengers who made our trip so memorable. It was great to meet old friends (from other cruises), to make so many new friends, and to indulge in fascinating science discussions. Thanks especially to those who successfully "stumped the scientist". I love learning new things, so you can be sure I won't stay stumped for long! Thanks also to those of you who shared your expertise so generously. You've provided me with insights into technologies and industries I might never have realized on my own.  I hope you enjoyed our interactions as much as we did.

Last Minute!

The Lovely Assistant and I are excited to be cruising again.  I'll be lecturing on the last half of the Emerald Princess repositioning cruise between Copenhagen and New York.  We'll be getting on in Reykjavik, Iceland and staying on until New York.  Which lectures to add to the schedule are still under discussion.  When the schedule is finalized, the lectures will be listed with the new cruise.
