Last Sunday was the first in this year's series of Spring Public Lectures. Terry Plank was the speaker and the Monell auditorium was absolutely packed on a beautiful sunny afternoon. As you know last season we started charging a $5 entry fee and requesting advance bookings in order to try to reduce the difficult and embarrassing over flow crowds that we had experienced - but still we are experiencing getting capacity crowds - which of course is absolutely wonderful!
And Terry's talk was fabulous - a very tough subject - the role of the earth's interior in the global water cycle - but she made it fun and exciting, up to and including spraying the Director with an effervescing soda bottle.
Too much time in meetings downtown this week - but at least no travel to more distant locales. That joy is reserved for next weekend.
Survived April's Fool Day without any unfortunate surprises - I guess Bill Menke must have been distracted this year.
Hope it stops raining - have a good weekend anyway.
