You may have noticed that there was no TTI column in the October issue. For the first time since starting to write this column, I didn’t have one announcement! So keep sending your announcements in. It is free and a great way to communicate with the CSEG membership.

We just returned from a three week vacation in South Carolina! We were in Charleston for a week then Hilton Head for two weeks. It is a beautiful place and we certainly got to experience southern hospitality. It was usually about 88 to 93 degrees Fahrenheit but with the humidity felt like 95 to 104. It was nice to get home to the cooler weather. And we missed the snowstorm. The one thing I won’t miss about South Carolina is the very large flying American cockroaches!

David and Marzena Feuchtwanger have swapped spaghetti for scones, and espressos for tea. After almost four and a half years in Milano, Italy, ENI transferred Dave to work in London, England in April this year. They packed up their belongings and memories and jumped across the Channel, leaving behind a city that they very quickly got used to calling home. The kiddos are growing and are adjusting really well to life abroad and haven’t complained once about their mandatory school uniforms. David now works in the Unitizations group, and Marzena, though still in retirement, is wetting her feet by prepping for an eventual return to work by having enrolled in a Master’s in Marketing program at the London School of Business and Finance, commencing in the fall of 2014.
