Throwing My Loop... A New Perspective in Flow Balance BY MICHAEL JOHNSON WATERFLUX - You'll Never Look at Flowmeters the Same Way THE OLD FELLOW sat staring into the fire.

Hit the ball with that thought. If you do that, you will have better balance. Balance is what helps you hit the ball straight." My friend, Bronc, came to see me back in the summer. Our mutual friends were scheduled to arrive the next day, so we spent our time before company came roping (naturally). After a few runs, he said, "You're roping well." I said, "I appreciate that, but I'm really not roping well at all. I'm sliding all over my horse, I'm catching KROHNE - Process instrumentation is our world.
