I thought maybe it would be good to give you faculty
updates, one each year. I’ll go first. Life is pretty good! My two sons Mattie, now age 30 (wow…) is
gainfully employed by Lutron Corporation and works on their new product design
team. His new band, Tithonus, is mixing
their second EP. His wife, Hannah, works
for DeVry University and is a big-time slam poet. They live in Phoenixville, PA, outside of
Philly. My younger son Jim (age 23, JimBob,
he doesn’t like it when I call him that anymore…) just graduated from PSU where
he majored in electrical engineering.
He’s now at Case Western in Cleveland, OH where he’s in grad school in
electrical engineering in his first year.
For fun, the kid likes to program, how nerdy is that?
My wife Holly (see above, whiffleball pitcher and
organometallic chemist extrordinaire), and I live in the woods 1.5 miles from
Rose Valley Lake. We just “finished” a
new screened in deck/porch, which is a way fun place to hang out when it’s nice
(or thunderstorming). I just purchased a
Honda ATV, which Holly assumes will put me in the hospital. I still like mountain biking, ping pong, and
basketball. My knees are turning to
jello so the last activity is becoming problematic. At the Christmas dinner this year I’m getting
a watch for being here for 2.5 X 101
years. I fear a roast will take place…… Here’s a summary
of what we’ve been up to in
the research lab. We are prepping a
paper right now, has the best stuff in it we’ve ever done!
