Current Events

July 20, 2015:  I am currently lecturing on “Potable Water” on Saturday’s at 1:30 pm at Oregon State University’s Hatfield Marine Science Center in Newport, Oregon.  I will stress what waters are safe for humans to drink, where to get it, and how to process water to make it “safe to drink.”

June 20, 2015:  I just revised an earlier post to include the subject  “How Do We Get Enough Drinking Water In A Crisis?”   I will email a free pamphlet on this subject to anyone who asks.

June 13, 2013:  I went to the University of California Davis, California, where I attended the graduation ceremonies of this year’s PhD candidates.   My daughter, Rebecca Duerr, received a PhD in Animal Biology.  She previously received a DVM from U. Cal. Davis.

Needless to say, I am very proud of her.

My family now has 4 generations of PhD recipients.  My father would have been very proud.  He only finished the 2nd grade.  His English was better than mine, and English was his second language.

I welcome suggestions and comments.  I’ll even respond to them!

Let me know what you think.
