Hello there! I am sorry to say that I do not have a good segue from silence to vacation, so let's just drop in. Vacation!!!!!! I am not quite sure what to say about Washington DC.

As happens every time I … Continue reading Mousie Hits the Beach

I had a paper that needed publishing, and the conference … Continue reading Like the Pictures
