Fish 4 Friday: Mediterranean Diet Halibut

This entry is part of a series, F4F 2011»

Halibut is […]

Scattering to the Winds: California Pizza Kitchen, then Home

By early this morning, the Symposium gang had scattered to their respective bases. Some had to get up in the middle of the night, as they had early flights from LAX. I can sympathize with wanting to get home, but most of them were complaining the night before that they were going back into […]

The Best Symposium Ever at ACS, and Celebrating at Buca di Beppo's

A tradition of sorts continued today as we all gathered at Molly’s for a filling breakfast. Anil, another of the Symposium speakers, was in attendance already, and he joined us after he finished up with his other friends.

Fast Taxis, Roma's for Ribs, and the Trouble with Disneyland

We made it. All the way to Anaheim. No thanks to our cab driver…

The flight from Austin to LAX was uneventful. The food was unremarkable too, a bit unusual for American Airlines first-cabin fare. Oh well; I didn’t get on that high-speed pressurized metal tube for the meal! It was a bittersweet ride for […]

Road Trip! Los Angeles, Here We Come

The American Chemical Society is holding their annual Spring meeting in Anaheim, and I’m running the show there…

Well, in a way I am. I’ll be the MC for one of the Symposia. The most important one, of course. On Industrial Problem Solving. And no, we won’t need smelling salts to keep the audience awake. […]
