Ed and I went to the NASA Goddard Memorial Dinner last night. We got all dressed up and drove to Washington DC for the event. We enjoyed the keynote speaker, Robert Ballard, who was the discoverer of the Titanic. It was unusual, but interesting, to have a deep sea diver speaking at a outer space event. The food and service wasn't spectacular, but after we ate the lava cake for dessert, all was forgotten.
We had considered staying overnight in Washington to go see the cherry blossoms, but the weather was cold and rainy, so we decided to drive home at midnight and get up Saturday morning and do our taxes instead. This was a pretty sorry trade-off!
