sense of humor

Take a look at the side bar (on the right) on this blog. The third image down shows a crouching lion with link to the 16th US National Congress on Theoretical and Applied Mechanics (USNCTAM) on June 27 – July 2, 2010.

Looks like pretty heavy and advanced applied mathematics to me. I won’t be going myself. It would be way over my head. I only put it there as a favor for my old time friend and one time colleague, Thomas Savarino.

Tom is a pretty brilliant mathematician in his own right and maybe he’s going to that conference. Maybe he’s even been invited!

Tom also has a wicked sense of humor which I appreciate. You can find him on facebook. We’ve kept in touch, off and on, via email for over twenty years.

Of course, it’ll be a miracle if anyone actually gets motivated by my little side-bar link to attend this conference, given the paucity of readership here.

We had a great Mem Day service in church today. That’s our UU church in Norway, Maine, pretty small as churches go, but we’ve picked up great enthusiasm in the last few weeks. Not sure why. But there you are. But getting back to the service today: Richard (that’s our minister) was in great form and had some wonderful thoughts. The thing about him is that he’s a regular person, not at all remote as some ministers, with their egos, tend to be. I get along with him great. He’s got a self-effacing sense of humor, just like me. But getting back to his thoughts, he emphasized memories, memorials, throughout the service. We were all asked to speak out and mention names of loved ones who have passed away. Many people spoke out. We must have had a good 25, maybe 30 people in attendance today. Our music went well too. Heather, our music director, led us in an enchanting and mesmerizing anthem about the Goddess, our returning, etc. Right now as I write this I can’t remember the details. So much happened today, I just can’t reproduce specifics. But we did pick up a new church member today, a very nice person named Trudi, didn’t get her last name. Our Growth Group met after church and Trudi became a new member of that. “An Inconvenient Truth” was shown at 1pm for those who hadn’t seen it. And now people are chatting and laughing upstairs while Clarissa and Eryn prepare supper so that Cynthia doesn’t have to do it.
