HOUSTON CHINESE PROFESSIONAL CLUB April, 2008
A presentation about Chinese Laundries and Southern Fried Rice to over 140 at a dinner that included many Mississippi Delta expatriates. It was a great chance to meet many people in person with whom I had had many prior e mail and telephone conversations about the Delta Chinese, especially Bobby Joe Moon. A bonus was being hosted by Phil Sun and his wife Chen. Phil is the brother of my Stockton fried, Sylvia Sun Minnick, And it was especially nice that one of my brightest former students, Adriana Alcantara, now a professor at U. of Houston, attended with her teenage daughter.

It was wonderful to get to see many of the friends I had made from my Houston visit during the previous year and enjoy making the acquaintance of others,
