NASA's Green Initiatives

Merrilee Fellows and I were long overdue for a get-together over breakfast to catch up with each other's professional and personal goings-on.

We did just that last week at my favorite spot for breakfast meetings: Ventanas Restaurant at the Westin Hotel.

Merrilee is NASA's manager for community involvement for environmental remediation.

I have known Merrilee for years, ever since outreach regarding treatment of some city-owned wells near JPL was added to her many responsibilities at NASA.

Not to mention the fact that Merrilee is a member of the sterling Pasadena Follies alumni!

She caught me up on the "green" initiatives she is working on from an outreach perspective.

It's exciting to know that the water treatment work NASA is conducting at our wells is given equal importance to bringing solar power to the John F. Kennedy Space Center!

She is so very cool. We, of the compost pile, think she's an asset to NASA.

The Venetanas certainly looks very businesslike. Doesn't look lika welcoming joint for a canine.

Ann, where's your fav spot for breakfast non-meetings?

Margaret said...

I think I want your job, Ann.

Petrea said...

I don't want your job, I just want to tag along and listen.

I'm glad to know they're greening the earth over at JPL. In the past I've seen some creepy-looking water rushing toward the Devil's Gate Dam. Boz adores it, but he'll ingest anything.

Dianne: She's absolutely cool!

Mike: I don't really go out for breakfast very often unless there's a meeting involved. Does my front porch count?

Margaret: Down, girl. This job's taken!

Petrea: You can tag along anytime. I'd love to have a "shadow" for a day.

PIO, the porch sounds ok. And, the prices sound even better!
