Way to go Professor!
We're slowly making progress on the computer front, so I should be back up and running with full posts and pictures soon. It's going to be a busy week with family visiting for a few days, Jeff's colleagues coming for dinner, a house to clean, projects to wrap up, and a vocal solo to prepare and deliver! So the computer may be last priority for a while.
One thing that is top priority is a little well-deserved praise for a certain wonderful husband. I've always enjoyed the posts of proud parents filling us in on the latest achievements of their progeny. Since our dog hasn't done anything great lately, I hope you'll bear with me while I pat Jeff on the back for a minute, instead.
At the recent international professional conference he attended in Ottawa, Jeff had been asked to serve as a session chair. This he did while also delivering a technical presentation the same week. The presentation (and accompanying paper) was awarded one of six Best Paper Awards out of 665 submissions! This is a big conference with professionals from 55 different countries and it's only held once every four years (Jeff calls it the Olympics, as it is the premier forum for fracture and fatigue research ;-). So I'm really excited and proud of my boy. Congratulations Dr. Jeffy!
