But when will we get the one on the dewatering project?
I might agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong!

Stan you sound like a cracked record! You have not attended any of the lectures so far this season. Short term mission visits will obviously have priority over someone who is here year round.

My suspicion is that the dewatering lecture was postponed indefinitely after someone here started talking about cracks in walls.

Strange you should say that Glyph, I was at a certain establishment here in London the other day, and would you believe it, the very subject was brought up in a general discussion, cracks and all. Yours trully said nothing, I thought it would be the best thing, to keep it that way......... :roll:

P.S.- Any one got an idea how much USAID pay towards that litle exercise.

Now,now BB we all try to be nice to each on in this section. I suppose gone are the days when we all just turned up, greatful there was a lecture, and simply hoped that it would not be in French.

Some of the Italian was hard to decipher, but the 4 lectures that I attended this winter were all interesting in different ways.
