My wife Sally (also a chemist and ACS member ) and I give fun talks on the chemistry of chocolate as public outreach, Chocolate -Food of the Gods

I have been an ACS tour speaker and we have been enrichment lecturers

on Cunard's Queen Mary 2 and on Princess Cruise ships.

The talk (with Howard's voice over) and most slides were recorded by the national ACS at the meeting on Aug 17 in Washington DC. That version is on the web.

We will jointly share the Harry and Carol Mosher Award on Jan 21, 2010 iof the ACS Santa Clara (Silicon) Valley Local Section

See for the next Jan 21 meeting.

For those attendees who stay to the "bitter" end, there is a free drawing for a ten pound bar of dark "bittersweet" chocolate.

See or GOOGLE "howard peters" chemist or chocolate for many hits.

We also talk about celebrating our immigrant , diversity and women inventors.

The grandfathers of our grand daughters are Ph.D. chemists now with 98 years of ACS membership.
