I’m headed to Germany to lead a class on the German Auto Industry. We’ll visit Porsche, Mercedes and BMW, among other companies.
Ann and I had the adventure of a lifetime exploring the Canadian Rockies with Road Scholar in July. We also camped throughout the US Rocky Mountains. Here we are at Moraine Lake. Notice the emerald water – it is from glacial “flour” – ground up rock.
Ann and I went to the Wellsville Airport for a fund-raiser for the Hart Comfort House of Allegany County. The Hart Comfort House is a place for people to live in in the last stages of life. The fund-raiser included a pancake breakfast at the airport, and there were helicopter and fixed-wing rides available. Ann […]
I’ve been watching Adirondack guide boats since the late 1970s, and recently got serious about looking for a good used kevlar / fiberglass model from the Adirondack Guide Boat Company of Vermont (http://www.adirondack-guide-boat.com/). A clean used Vermont Fishing Dory (one foot shorter and a bit wider than their guide boat) turned up for sale in […]

I recently learned of a society of descendents of Fielding Lewis and Betty Washington. Their Fielding Lewis was a first cousin of my Robert of Belvoir. I am interested in their society as they have annual meetings to learn more about their history. In 2011 they met in Williamsburg, VA. They will meet again June […]
Finals are done and grades are posted! Nearly all my students at Alfred University’s College of Business did very well, and I sure learned a lot from their questions. Excel pivot tables were one of the most interesting things we worked on in MIS. We have a four-week time to refresh and then Spring 2012 […]
Well made custom knives are a delight to hold, admire and work with. My brother recently bought a bird and trout knife by Claude Montjoy, a deceased knifemaker from Laurens County, South Carolina. The knife fits my hand perfectly, and is well proportioned for using. If you are a fan of Claude Montjoy, I’d love […]
After years of being asked to write a book about my Lewis family history, I finally did it. The book is available for $17.50 including shipping to the lower 48 states, and you can get a copy by writing me through the “Contact Us” link above.
