Update problems

I have been trying to update my blogroll for the past three days without success. Spercifically, I am trying to update my “drinking pals” section since I now have three new blog writers who are new drinking pals of mine; John, Brent and Jim, whose beautiful house I visited while I was in Phoenix —…

Last Day at SICB

Today is the last day of SICB. The meeting ends at noon, and since I stayed up until three in the morning, writing up summaries of the bird posters, I slept in a little bit this morning, so I am missing the last few presentations today. Overall, the meeting was excellent, with lots of fascinating…

PZ Has Arrived

Well, folks, PZ has arrived and is in fine spirits, although not as fine as me, considering that I have had a beer and already met some people I know from graduate school. I was also told that my dissertation advisor is here, and according to rumor, he is out birding somewhere so he may…

I’m Here!

Yes, my peeps, I have arrived in Phoenix, I have investigated the surroundings and am settled into my room on the 19th floor of the Hyatt Regency hotel. My room has a great view of the city, and of the Sierra Nevada Mountains in the distance, which are currently obscured by a layer of smog.…
