World Batch Forum (May 2004)- The World Batch Forum, (WBF) is a meeting of the minds on the S88 and S95 standards for batch production. It's always a chance to catch up with people in the my professional community.
It was a re-union of sorts. The original Dow Corning S88 team, Phil Schreiber, Don Smith and Darrin Flemming. We were also joined by Dick Lanier, a project leader for the South African Breweries (SAB) project days. He was one of the key contributors during the Sequencia period.
Rockwell's RSTech Ed (June 2004)- This year Rockwell holds their big technical conference in Phoenix, Arizona. It is attended by over 900 registered people with 130 technical sessions. The number of rental pc's we set up was amazing.
Marcus providing his technical expertise!
So, I challenged Phil to a race. The game is to run as far as you can. The catch - you have a bungee cord attached to your back so you are pulled back on your bum when the reach the limit of the pull versus your weight. Needless to say, Phil has 100 pounds on me, so he won. But a good laugh.
Jeanie and Glenn's Wedding (June 2004)- A cousin of mine got married in St. Louis. It is a chance to see some relatives and family I have not seen in a while..
Ed and Dot, proud parents of the bride.
My dad and his brothers and sisters.
My dad with his brothers and sisters and spouses.
We had a small family reunion after the the wedding.
Since we are in St. Louis, my family takes a day to see the sites. Of course, we had to go up in the Arch. Be prepared for the new security to see the national sites. Full metal screening to get in.
My sister, her husband and Ryan.
The elevator to take you to the top of the St. Louis arch is a bit of a tight fit. But, it does not take to long to get to the top.
Once at the top, you have great views of the city of St. Louis.
It was a great chance to spend some time with my nieces and nephew.
We also go to Grants Farm.
Grant's Farm, operated by Anheuser-Busch, Inc., has been a St. Louis tradition for 50 years.
The Farm takes its name from our 18th President of the United States, Ulysses S. Grant. In the 1850s, Grant founded and farmed a portion of the 281 acres.
It has a very unique fence on once side. The fence is made from Civil War rifle barrels. You won't see another one of these anywhere in the world. The fence across from the cabin was constructed from 2,563 rifle barrels as a Civil War memorial.
