You may have noticed that Sponge-Headed Scienceman over at These Things Happen has not updated for over a month. He not only has work projects going, he also wants to put whatever spare energy he has into a book. He has one already, which you would only be excited about if you needed to know a lot about ISO 14001 fast. Which is why I haven't read it, even though he's one of my best and longest friends; and have no intention of sampling even a paragraph.
The new one looks a bit more interesting, but I'm not teasing it until it's much closer to completion.
You will have to find your New England curiosities, geo and general science updates, and Moxie news elsewhere for awhile.
