12th Annual Virginia Architecture Seminar:

Dr. Camille Wells, my former grad student, gave me a fantastic introduction - better than my talk.  I announced that "Wow, I'd like to get to know that guy!"  After the talk, somehow I lived through a standing ovation.  Then, they presented with a mint proof silver dollar commemorating Thomas Jefferson's 250th birthday anniversary (1743-1993). So it brings back those fond memories as well as the 11 years with the Virginia Architecture seminar.
