I'm heading off line today and won't have any internet access for a few days. After that I should have access again, but life has conspired to hand me the "Weeks of DOOOOM" leading up to September 1st-ish. You know, the usual start of classes (with a new prep), two grant proposals (with a third a few weeks later), my reappointment dossier and statement due, starting Minnow in a new preschool, revaccinating her because apparently all the shots she received prior to 6 months old are "potentially subpotent", etc., etc., etc. So things are going to get pretty quiet here for a while.
Hopefully Alice will return from her vacation ~ August 17th refreshed and ready to share some of her excitement with you all. In the meantime, I encourage you to check out some of the blogs in our blogrolls and the newest edition of the Scientiae carnival. This edition "Summer Days, Driftin' Away" is hosted by Abel Pharmboy.
See you on the other side.
"revaccinating her because apparently all the shots she received prior to 6 months old are "potentially subpotent", etc., etc., etc."
my first thought was "wow, that's a really wide spread problem if it happened in mystery city too"... duh, that was here in Utpopia. we sure miss you around here. At least you only have to redo 6mo of shots, we've got 2 years... not sure if I am up for doing them all again or not.
hope the next month-ish goes well for you.
