A new chemist is born

I’ve been delinquent in reading other blogs as of late, so I missed last week’s arrival of Rick and Patty’s new baby, Catherine, at Science, Shrimp and Grits.

Rick is a great chemistry teacher in South Carolina who always has spot-on insights on the state of science education, together with personal insights on student performance and, always, great experiments. As a Clemson alum, he’s also quite fond of documenting his Southern culinary adventures and I often find myself salivating over my keyboard with some of his posts.

This time, it’s all about the proud daddy, his new baby girl, and the entire Shrimp and Grits families. G’won over and wish them congratulations.
