Aug. 1st, 2017

I will continue with last year's conference, but for now, here's what happened on July 27, 2017. Our conference in O'Fallon, Illinois, began with an opening reception in the evening, and at least one speech, which I missed, because I took my shoes off, and lay down across one of the double beds in my room. I did get downstairs eventually, and join my friends for some informal chat.

One Georgist cut open a dragon fruit from his California orchard, and gave me a piece. This was the first time that I had eaten dragon fruit, and I liked it, but not enough to try to find and buy it regularly.

The theme of the conference was "Bridging the Left-Right Divide."
You may want to refer to my post on July 18, where I promised to match donations to Global Emergency Response, up to a limit of $250. Someone has made a $20 donation, and more are welcome; at the end of this week, I will match whatever donations I have been notified of before that time. If that's less than $250, I will be open to matching further donations.
