    Yes, I’m back and blogging. I’ve been at the Eastern Analytical Symposium all week. The hotel claimed to have free WiFi access but they apparently lied. We never did find a hotspot. EAS is a great meeting (I’m on the Governing Board, so I might be a bit biased). Putting on a big meeting (several thousand attendees) is a lot of hard work, but we get to play hard, too. Last night a group of us went here for dinner and some very light gambling ($2 per race split between 25 of us). What a gorgeous place! 60 feet above the track with a birds eye view through the glass wall. This picture doesn’t come close to doing it justice.

    The rest of the week was just about as good. That being said, though, I missed my family. It’s good to be home.

    That looks very interesting. What’s your field of expertise, Daryl?

    Well it certainly wasn’t trotters. My only semi-successful pick was in the 8th race. I had to go with “pH Factor.” Talk about a geeky name. He placed. Oh, you meant chemistry. I currently do GC and GC/MS, though I’ve a fair amount of experience in thermal analysis/calorimetry.
