Dr. Eli Maor and his wife Dalia visited the Bruce area again this year.  Eli gave a talk on Infinity at the Bruce County Museum and Cultural Centre.

I got a chance to spend time with him as he and his wife visited Keppel Henge on Colpoy Bay.  It's a wonderful astronomical site.

We talked extensively about his life as a best selling author.  He has become quite famous because of his many books (see www.amazon.com Eli Maor).

Evidently he and Dalia get 'stalked' by people who have mathematical ideas about the world around them.  They conjure up gibberish and try to get Eli to read and certify their rants as true.  So, they have had to erect a firewall around themselves to have any time for their work and adventures. 

They travel extensively from their homes in Jerusalem and Chicago.  Being avid Eclipse chasers, they are on the run to places like the Faroe Islands and the Gobi Desert

Eli is just finishing another book on the relationship of music and mathematics.
