Tucson Feb New York March 2006
New garden bed is constructed and well loved.
There's no controlling some plants!
New garden bed again. Did I tell you it's made from the old garage door?
Sallie attempting to eat desert.
OK, now we get to the meeting. Here's Nils preparing his talk in the cold.
Every one is getting ready.
Even the MIRC crew are at it.
Who knows what Laszlo is up to... preparing a talk maybe?
Another lovely day in Southern California.
Just for the record, the wiring at CHARA is very neat.
As are the beautiful optics.
More optics... just for show.
The visible system cleverly called the VIS.
Inside one of the delay lines.
OK, at the meeting at last. Judit gives us an overview.
PJ wins the award for the most informative and entertaining talk.
Mike even chimes in with something useful.
Off we go to Mount Hopkins to see IOTA.
But first a flash back to the Intensity Interferometer.
Up at IOTA, Dave checks out the Siderostats.
Some view eh?
Seems CHARA is not the only facility with empty bottles hanging around.
Look familiar? Guess which Interferometer we're at. Can't can you.
The Ridgway's bravely entertain the crowd at their lovely home.
Michael has found the beer.
Look! Michigan and GSU people interacting!
Nils holds court.
Our host Steve entertains Laszlo.
As you can see, this was a very pleasant evening. Ellyn and both Dave's are smiling.
Laszlo normally means what he says.
The Boss, and the bosses Boss. The McAlisters and their smiles.
Vincent and Alisa discuss the state of things in French.
John, Jason, Antoine and Ettore smiling. We have got to do this more often.
The tiger, I should add, was not real.
Back home in LA, may we present the Cactus collection?
More plants that Sallie seems to like.
Back to the new flower bed again. Can you tell we're pleased with this?
OK, perhaps we're over doing it a bit here.
Back in New York, Ben shows me where the new exhibition will go.
Nice office eh? You should see the view.
Optics lab. No view here.
Out for a walk in the park. Honestly he's pointing at the nearest bar.
I have dibs on the next bar. That's people skating back there.
At home, Sallie enjoys the new computer, care of Martin.
The new shelves are also a hit on the domestic front.
