Comments:

Happy making ethanol from sugar cane on several different continents. Dedicated to planet friendly energy development and supply. Forbes Energy will be producing bio jet fuel from sugar cane this year in the USA and proud to be involved in the change of the politics of energy here at home.
Developing a new project in Puerto Rico this year and plan to be producing diesel and Jet-A from sugar cane on American soil.

School Story:

Arrived at Cubberley High School from a German Gymnasium and the French School in Berlin, Germany. We lived through the blockade and the building of the wall separating East and West Berlin, most of the family at Checkpoint Charlie when the Russian and US tanks faced off at the only official crossing, never thinking that WW III could have started there, that very day!!
From Cubberley, I went to prep school in East Cornwall, CT for the Winter and Spring semester. I spoke at graduation about change and dislocation, two topics close to my heart, as Marvelwood School was my 5th high school experience, taken in 3 different languages. My high school was Cubberley and I had not been allowed to graduate from my high school! I went to school in Santa Cruz for a couple of semesters but never found my niche.
The pattern was set, as I have traveled the world for the past 50 years, lived in 15 different countries and founded several natural resource companies from New Guinea to Kenya to Brazil and Chile among others. I bought and sold a small bank in Uruguay in 1984 and came back to the States with President Reagan, settling here in Rhode Island and starting a family. My businesses have all remained overseas, principally in Russia, both as the Soviet Union and today's iteration, Africa and South America.

Hi Steve,
"Chris was a genius and later head of the New York City Opera". Which Chris are you talking about? I worked for Eichler, lived in an Eichler and never knew you were related to the Boss. Sure it would not have changed anything, but nice to know. Hope the years have treated you well, and I do not remember if you were at the 50th in Santa Cruz as we never talked, sadly. Hope Covid missed your house as well. Regards. Lucien

Happy happy birthday with many healthy returns. Hope you and yours are well and untouched by Covid. Just got my second needle and feel so relieved. I do hope we can put both Trump and Covid behind us forever.

Wonderful to see I shared my high school years, even if truncated, with a great American citizen. I have been disillusioned with our leadership recently but hardly with our citizenry. Bravo on a life well lived and thank you for your service. Merry Christmas and healthy New Year.
