I might even publish a picture of something delicious.

It might be next week. It might be next year. Who can predict these sorts of things?

I hope you are all well and--in the northern hemisphere, anyway--enjoying the anticipation of spring. More as it comes.

There have been at least a couple of abstracts presented that I wouldn't mind blogging about; I just haven't gotten to them yet. I also haven't forgotten about…

A sighting! Miss you.
