The 2008 IEEE PES T&D Expo is history now.
The very first Show Blog is history too. I picked up some new nick-names along the way too. I have been called the “Blogger,” the “Bloggist,” the “Bloggster,” and my favorite the “Blogmeister.” I have never worked so hard at a PES T&D Expo, but I have never had so much fun either. I met a lot of old friends and made a lot of new ones. My head aches with all I have learned. Now it is time to switch from the past; it was fun, but it is over. We have to start thinking ahead to New Orleans in 2010. I talked with Tommy Mayne about 2010. I even got a couple of stories (something about King Cakes and spin the bottle), which I can’t repeat here and a string of Mardi Gras beads. He is in high gear, moving like a Tasmanian devil, a whirlwind, and he is stirring everyone up for the 2010 IEEE PES T&D Expo. With Tommy involved, I know we are going to get “lagniappe” (something extra) for our show. He and his team have a lot of work to do and not much time to get it done. As Tommy always says to me, “Laissez les bon temps rouler!” (Let the good times roll!)
