Ray and Kerry Postolovski

Ray Postolovski, GIS Industry manager for Hyland Software (Westlake, Ohio), and his wife Kerry recently explored ancient Egyptian sites during a 10-day excursion to Egypt. Among the highlights were wearing their Esri T-shirts at the Great Pyramids, touring King Tut's tomb at the Valley of the Kings, and taking a cruise on the Nile River.

Doug tells us there are 275 individual cascades along 2.5 miles of border between Brazil and Argentina.

David Allen, GIS manager for the city of Euless, Texas, poses at the Longmen Grottoes of Louyang, China, in his Esri shirt. The Longmen Grottoes were first chiseled into the hillsides along the Yi River around 490 A.D. and took more than 400 years to complete. They include more than 2,400 caves and more than 100,000 Buddhist images. The prominent carvings in this photo are Bodhisattva (left), a heavenly king holding the Divine Pagoda and standing on a ghost, and Vajras looking unruly and ferocious.

Elayne Warren, sanitarian, Environmental Health Division, Allegany County, Maryland, Health Department, visited the Equatorial Monument outside Quito, Ecuador (latitude 0'0'0'), being sure to wear her Esri T-shirt. Elayne tells us, "They say that if you stand on the line, your balance is improved and you'll weigh two pounds less!"

Expanded T-Shirts

Jeff and JoAnn Michelsen
Jeff Michelsen, GIS manager and vice president, LandAmerica Lender Services (corporate office: Atlanta, Georgia), and his family spent some time in Death Valley, California, recently. Here, he and his wife, JoAnn C. Michelsen, are posing for the camera, and obviously they are extremely happy that Jeff remembered to bring his Esri T-shirt! It bears noticing, while we are on the subject, that Jeff and JoAnn named their children Jay, Jennifer, Janson, Joshua, Joseph, and Jonny. Anybody notice a pattern?
Ray Boswell
Ray Boswell, GIS manager, Blount County, Tennessee, found a very tall friend at the Bonnaroo Music Festival in Manchester, Tennessee. He tells us a good time was had by all the 100,000 plus attendees during the three days of music and mayhem in the sweltering June Tennessee sun. Of course, Ray planned ahead and brought along his Esri T-shirt.
