ďThe production of motion in the steam engine always occurs in circumstances which it is necessary to recognize, namely when the equilibrium of caloric is restored, or (to express this differently) when caloric passes from the body at one temperature to another body at a lower temperature.Ē
Nicolas Leonard Sadi Carn: French Physicist

Nicolas went the long way around to say you mix some hot temperature with a cooler body and you can get a caloric shift that enables work to be done. (Iím glad I didnít have him as an instructor in engineering in school).

We are not trying to be complex, but we are sharing the talents that we have within CAGRS. I am talking about sharing leadership roles The first ones this season are the president and secretary and are elected by the club members. Not only do we need people to be on the executive committee, but people to be on the nominating committee. These are appointed by the current executive committee. Their terms expire at the Annual Meeting. If you are interested in either one of these committees, contact me.

On the light side, we are already in the process of planning the annual potluck and movie to be held April 18. Mary Fiorito is the lead person. Contact Mary if you would like to be a member of this merry group.

Thatís all for this time around.

Our next meeting will be Sunday, January 26, 2020 at the Holiday Inn in Itasca.


Please note: There will be NO December meeting.
Merry Christmas to all and have a safe and prosperous 2020!


Keep Ďem turnin.
