But I digress.
The Gaylord Texan Resort was a great venue for the HSCG conference, as well as a great place for a reunion with my daughters and granddaughter. The atrium of the Gaylord was the center of activity for hotel guests who could experience family-friendly activities connected with a Peter Pan themed Summerfest, which included the roaming characters Captain Hook, Peter Pan, Wendy, and Tinkerbell. Plus it was Prom Weekend for the local high schools, and the atrium and restaurants were filled with roaming wanna be princesses and their Prince Charmings - and their picture taking parents. Quite the sight. Plus 500 soapmakers, but who noticed them?
(Here's a helpful soapmaker math hint: remember to multiply by 40 and divide by 56.1 to convert KOH SAP values to NaOH SAP values. Oh, and pay attention to the instructions on how to round the answer.)
There is the soap making universe and then there is BrickUniverse. Yep. Both have conventions - one is for building the network of soap makers and the other is for Lego builders. And unlike a basic soap recipe, creating with Legos is never simple. But for a moment at the Gaylord Texan Resort, both of these worlds collided as I stopped to admire this treasure:
Thanks for stopping by!
