Quality Concrete from Crap

In working in Haiti, it became clear that one could not build a concrete building with the raw materials and technology available. Well, let me rephrase that, could not build a concrete building which would hold up to gale force winds. Gale force winds are much calmer than Hurricane force.

This started Herb working on how to take the crap that was available and make it into quality concrete. This resulted in the publication of Quality Concrete from Crap in late December, 2017. We are working on the Haitian Creole edition and talking to people who are interested in translating it to other languages.

While my Haitian friends understand the title, a common comment made in the US is, “Does it stink?”  No it does not.

About Herb

Both of Herb's parents were story tellers, so it was only natural that he became a story teller. Whether he was leading a Bible Class, teaching a continuing eduction class to engineers or architects, or discussing where to go kayaking, every conversation was punctuated with a story or two. When he retired from the corporate world, he had 44 writing projects lined up. While everyone thinks their project is the most important, Herb is trying to prioritize based on some rationale that even he probably does not understand. When not writing, he is consulting, leading kayakers on nature kayak cruises, or volunteering at his church.
