hi Barbara, you have an amazing memory!

> Are you the same George Por who came to UC Berkeley some years ago when I was the Foreign Scholar Adviser?

Yes I am and I think we met a few times when I was a Visiting Research Fellow or something like that at UC Berkeley but that was more than 30 years ago!

It's good to see you again! Thank you, TWC!
