CPCUG meeting in the Cleveland Park Library

I was amazed at the variety of folks who were there. NIH, Montgomery College, American Red Cross and many others. I met my friends Barbara Halpern and Alice Marshall (@prestovivace) and Jo Golden @jogolden ( who will be presenting on Saturday, December 12, 2009, 12:30-3:00 pm (Note: 2nd Saturday) on Research Skills and Strategies for Business

Since Cleveland park does not have good parking garages a lot of people seemed to move in and out to move their cars and get back.

Pamela Dunning from American Red Cross came up and told me we have a mutual friend @shonali who blogs at Network Solutions raffled two admissions to the GrowSmartbiz conference taking place in DC on Sept 29th and also we gave away A signed copy of Debbie Weil's The Corporate Blogging book.

In a hour or so after the event I was impressed to get a Linkedin Invite from one of the attendees. Nice job folks .

However in the past decade this has changed dramatically. Now `Emirates (Dubai) Etihad (Abu Dhabi) Qatar Airways (In Doha, Qatar) have taken over these routes with their new aircraft and great service. From Washington DC, Emirates is an outlier, it flies in the morning at 10.55 from Washington Dulles Airport (IAD) and reaches Dubai at around 8.30 a.m. Other flights, Etihad, Qatar and flights with European stopovers take off after 9 p.m at night.

My wife's viewpoint is that it is difficult to sleep on the Emirates flight since it starts in the morning. I enjoy the morning flight.
