Back in Happy Valley

Happy Valley looked as great as usual when I returned last night after the APME conference in St. Louis.

I must congratulate the Oklahoman in Oklahoma City for winning APME's prestigious Innovator of the Year award. One of the highlights of my year is overseeing that contest and presenting the finalists at the national conference.

It's great to be back. Many friends are in Chicago this weekend for the Northwestern game. Here's a salute to them and a wish for a Nittany Lions win.
