Last year was very busy, particularly during the Autumn. I visited Miami University in Ohio and spoke both at the University and at the Hamilton Campus.

I then went to Texas A and M at College Station where, at the invitation of Davis Ford and Clayton Williams, I spoke at the university to coincide with the publication of new editions of my first two books by Texas A and M Press.

It was a wonderful visit and I attended my first football game. What an experience!

The highlight of my visit was meeting President and Mrs George W Bush. Mrs Bush, seeing that questions were slow in coming, jumped in to set the ball rolling.
