Boy does it feel good to be back in Texas!!! It has been too long.  Almost 14 months since I had been here last.  The weather here has been 62 degrees and windy, while back home 4-6 inches of snow fell.  Meghan is not happy about about all the shoveling that she will be doing.

As my day of meetings in Houston draws to a close, it is a great time to reflect on the opportunity that I have to work on such as awesome project.  I will be able to share more details in the coming months with the rest of my friends.    Two of my German colleagues and I went to eat at Saltgrass steakhouse.  It was fun helping them convert ounces to grams of protein, and their reaction to portion sizes drove home the ridiculous portions of US proteins.  While I was helping them with unit conversions, they were helping me with my German.  They taught me two new words that I feel are very important.

Unfortunately I was unable to grab a meal with my good friend Megan.  It looks like I will be back in Houston during the next two months so I am not worried that we will be able to grab that meal.

The most unforgettable experience of this trip has to be the giant cow that was in the parking lot of the hotel in Houston.  The three of us were trying to figure out if a cow of this size would taste good.  

I have an early flight in the morning, and then a full day of work tomorrow.  It will be a long day for sure.  Gute Nacht
