I had my first business trip as a daddy this week. Umf, I felt gut pain the first couple nights from missing the kid.
I spent Sun through Wed near the confluence in Pittsburgh at a groundwater protection conference. The conference theme was the water-energy nexus. Did you know that electricity production uses about the same amount of water as agriculture in the US? Did you know that India uses 30% of its electricity generation to pump groundwater? The nexus is an HUGE story.
Bobby Kennedy Jr. was the keynote speaker. He walked within 1 foot of me, but I neither shook his hand or tripped him. He hates coal.
My birthday happened a week ago. We had caramel apples instead of cake. I hope to bake my cake tonight.Here's some reasons that I missed Clara terribly. What a funny kid!
Clara is a huge star with Jill's students.
The conference was too busy for me to enjoy Pittsburgh. The one tourist thing I did was ride the incline. I would have loved to ride a bike there and climb some of the steepest streets in the country. Maybe next time.
