Back to Normal

I test negative! Hooray! After 2 weeks of isolated languor I can get on with life again.

The Government sends me lots of free antigen tests.

We take down the barrier between my room and the one behind, creating a luxurious 2 room suite.

Original doors appear
I can drive the truck around in here.

It is a great space.

Two room Calder. I am coming up in the world.
Very nice

It costs $100 to fill up the truck! Used to be $50. I blame everybody.

James gets new collapsible Kayak. Lots of fun ahead!

I find Greta hanging around in San Francisco. We used to work together.

We have a wonderful day, eating and driving around the city in the truck.

She is the best.

I give a talk at the University of San Francisco on the History of CERN, my part in its downfall. Robert Cailliau (Zoom) and Bebo White (in the flesh) also speak. I could not remember anything and so reread all the Press Releases that I had written for CERN since 1989. Amazing! I was so lucky to have been involved in all that stuff.


So much fun working with Roberto and Bebo again.

    Hey, he’s back! Was starting to wonder if the infection had killed off the blog.
    Interesting looking kayak that James is sitting in – can’t help wondering how it would cope with bashing against some riverbed rocks!
    Good to see Robert Cailliau again – must be years since I last saw him although I have noticed his name a couple of times in the New Scientist letters section.
    Hope that post-Covid brainfog didn’t hamper your talk too much – age and distance in time is bad enough. Gosh, how much fuel does the truck hold? How many US gallons do you get for $100?

    • Kayak does look a bit fragile but it is super light and foldable. Robert in great form – very polemic about everything. I just told anecdotes about Carlo Rubbia; works every time. Gas is about $7:00 a gallon. I expect civil unrest.
