Alas, you will be swinging by just close enough for me to see your plane go by overhead, but not close enough to make a trip with toddler in tow. I will wave to you as you pass, thus. :)

Where is the Los Altos Morning Forum? Because I think I have the time free to attend.

Alas, and alack (sort of) that my seminar in Boston cancelled on me, and so I am not going to be speaking in Andover, which means my trip to Boston, 207 Nov, is going to be rather to New Jersey.

Good question... I have no idea. Some place in Los Altos, no doubt, which is nowhere near Los Angeles. (I will be flying up to San Jose for the day, and someone is driving me to the event.)

As with all these events, if you would like to attend, my best advice is to google them and see where and when, and if they're open to the public. I make no guarantees!

I live in Palo Alto, my classes are in Los Altos. I shall try to figure out where they are.

According to their web page, The Morning Forum of Los Altos meets from 10:15 AM to 11:45 AM on the first and third Tuesdays of each month, starting the season in September and continuing into June of the following calendar year. Our meeting location is in the chancel of the Los Altos United Methodist Church (LAUMC).

Morning Forum of Los Altos membership is required for attendance at the presentations.

There is a Jesuit retreat center in Los Altos. Is it being held there?

I'm sure you'll convey my regards to Lyon College!

I work at a restaurant/bar near Kendall Square if you want to drop by while you're here in Boston. I'll buy you lunch.

Or, if there's any sort of blessing for an establishment that monks can do, my boss will buy you lunch in exchange for a blessing. (I'm really dubious about the theology of that, by the way. His goal is to try to get as many blessings from as many religious traditions as he can get, just to hedge his bets. . . )

But, yeah. MIT/Kendall/Tech Square area restaurant/bar/nightclub, which I work days. Bring friends! We can make it a party!

How morning is Saturday Morning Physics?

I guess I can break my rule about getting up before noon on the weekend just once if necessary.
Oct. 1st, 2010 11:59 am (UTC)

From the web site: Each talk begins at 10:30 A.M. in 170 Dennison. All lectures are free and open to the public.

Saturday Morning Physics
Comets and Cappuccinos: How a Coffee Break Helped Change the Way We Understand the Solar System

Date: 10/16/2010; 10:30 AM to 11:30 AM
Location: 170 & 182 Dennison Building
Host Department: PHYSICS

Speaker: Br. Guy Consolmagno SJ (Curator of the Vatican Meteorite Collection, Vatican Observatory)

Learn how a cappuccino at the Vatican fifteen years ago inspired a new, efficient way of measuring meteorite densities. Startlingly, comparing these measurements to the densities of asteroids and comets has completely shaken up our understanding of small bodies in the solar system. It's altered our way of understanding the formation of planets, our ideas of defending ourselves from killer asteroids, and our definition of dwarf planets like Pluto.

The lectures are held on the U-M central campus (Ann Arbor) from 10:30-11:30 a.m. and are preceded by refreshments and followed by Q&A sessions. The Church Street Parking Sturcture is available at a cost of $2.00 per vehicle.

By the way, if you are ever in the Amsterdam area...

Too busy this time, but one of these days I'll try to see you when you're back in the Boston area. (It's been quite a while since we ran into one another at a con. I don't suppose you're coming to Arisia or Boskone in 2011?) Or maybe I'll book you to speak at the high school where I teach... 8-D
