Thanks so very much for giving me an opportunity to take my various messages directly to the NACHI members. I thoroughly enjoyed myself every minute I was there.
I think you and I had some very worthwhile and frank chats, and I think the future looks good. Once I get a rest from the past three hectic days I’ll contact you and we can discuss a few more ideas.
It was an honour and a pleasure to meet your lovely wife and well-mannered, polite son. You are a lucky guy !!!
I met so many very knowledgeable and helpful people I don’t know where to begin, but Joe Ferry, Mike Crow, Russell Buchanan, Valerie Green welcomed me and treated me like old friends.
I met lots of my new and old colleagues and I hope I was able to advise a few of them on a number of matters. I also received much good advice.
Last and certainly not least, it was a profound pleasure to meet John McKenna and sit in his Infrared Course for two days. The amount of information he threw at us in a short two days was amazing, but with his old boy, quiet humour and wit, he kept the class alive and interesting. Thanks, John, and I sincerely hope our friendship lasts many years.
I also have some pictures from our class that I took from the rear of the room and with any luck, I’ll upload a couple just to show you I learned something.
On a more serious note, it was nice to meet old friends and meet new ones; many thanks to John for teaching me so much in such a short time and to Nick and team for providing us such a great association with resources to die for!
He’s pretty beat up. But that is the point of it. This is the second year I sent him (my 15 year old son) up there.
As a former slave (I was sold into slavery when I was 12), I try to give my kids everything I can. That’s a mistake that I had to unravel with my younger son. These trips help do that, and also keep him away from video games and TVs.
