    Downtown

    by

    October 12, 2017. I did some more work on server virtualization today, did some editing on a paper, and went downtown to pick up my Chinese visa. This butterfly was on the fencing around a construction site on Bank Street and summed up my mood for the day. http://ift.tt/2wUIrqv…

    October 11, 2017. My big Contact North paper came out late this afternoon. It occupied several months of weekends to pull together. I spent the day working on the newsletter, reading 1930s textbooks, and evaluating a funding proposal. http://ift.tt/2gxJTJ3…

    Common Yellowthroat

    by

    October 9, 2017. I’m calling this a female Common Yellowthroat, which is a type of warbler. It’s perched in our apple tree in the back yard. I spent some time today submitting my Chinese visa application and working on server virtualization. http://ift.tt/2gdGIJT…
