    Memory lane:
    While you will be sorting out solvents and aromatics in Berlin, I will be covering life- and-death pharmaceutical topics at a conference in Copenhagen. Petrochemicals… Pharmaceuticals… Italians win the fashion stakes every time.

    Best drive nominations:
    1) Dharhan to Al Jubail on the east coast of Saudi Arabia in a big Mercedes at high speed through the desert at night. Al-Jubail looked like New York City as we approached … but they were distillation towers rather than skyscrapers!
    2) Nice airport to Monaco in a taxi on the autoroute. Way better than a stomach-churning helicopter ride.

    Perhaps you have in your files some evidence, photographic or otherwise, of a Dutch and Scottish union in Belgium?

    Well all for a good cause. Thought for Today: “Fear cannot be without hope nor hope without fear.” — Baruch Spinoza, Dutch philosopher (1632-1677).

    Trivia for Prince fans — today back in 1982, he released his single 1999
