Bother

Apologies. I scheduled this post to appear this morning, and it’s drawn a few comments. However, it also double-posted for some reason (we underwent an upgrade last night so things have been a bit wonky), and when I unpublished the duplicate, it also took the comments from the site. (I can see them here in…

So, the buzz on ScienceBlogs today is science blogger hot or not. It cracks me up that a few people have mentioned me and thanks y’all, but I was always more comfortable with my identity as a quiz bowl nerd anyway (and apparently a picture on technorati was the inclusion criteria, which I never bothered…

“Vacation”

…or, really, another swing to Ohio to drop off the kids. Their school-based daycare ended today, so I’m currently somewhere in a little place on Lake Huron to camp for two days, then I’ll be in Ohio for a few hours to drop them off with relatives, and then back to Iowa on Monday. I…

Swabbin’…

(The title should, of course, be hummed to the tune of “Strokin’…”) I’m out playing with cows again this afternoon. In the meantime, a few good posts from elsewhere: Ed talks about the excuses Dembski’s given for why research into intelligent design isn’t being done. Revere notes a cull of 50,000 dogs in China due…

Programming note

Just a note, since yesterday’s post on Gallagher generated a lot of comments. I have a few posts on tap today (well, really tomorrow, as I’m writing this Thursday evening), but they’re all scheduled and I’m not near a computer (and won’t be until late this afternoon). So should there be some blow-up or comments…

Sick kid day

Even a microbiologist can’t keep her kids well 100% of the time. Have a post scheduled for later today but that’ll be it; hopefully things will be back to normal tomorrow. In the meantime, check out the newest edition of Pediatric Grand Rounds.

Back!

7 days, over 2000 miles, and 32+ hours on the road (half of it with 2 kids and a dog). I need a vacation from my vacation. Thanks to most of you for your patience; I see I’ve already been accused of “censorship” for not being around to approve some comments that got stuck in…

On the road again…

It’s “vacation”–sort of. Thanks to the magic of scheduled posts, even as this pops up I’m probably somewhere in central Illinois at the moment. I’ll be in Ohio for a few days to play with my new nephews, and yet a third new nephew who was just born this past weekend. Then it’s off to…

Apologies…

I was off this weekend, so I’ve just now published some of the comments that got caught in the junk filter. My apologies to the authors–contrary to what at least one of you mentioned, I’m not censoring you, and a few comments I agree with also got stuck. Swamped today, but I’ll have some new…

Let’s talk about me

Sorry in advance about the shameless self-promotion. As mentioned, I’m hosting Grand Rounds next week (so be sure to get your entries in). Each week, the originator of the carnival, Dr. Nicolas Genes, posts a bit about the host on Medscape (“Pre-Rounds”); here’s my interview for anyone interested. Additionally, for those of you in the…
