Greetings! Oh how I’ve missed blogging, though I’m sure I was hanging out with a good chunk of my readers at The Amazing Meeting 9 in Las Vegas last week. Now, I’m taking some much deserved downtime at Lake Wallenpaupack in Pennsylvania with Tim and family. Of course, downtime also means catch-up on blogging time, and I have the next in my series of “South Africa Travelogues” almost ready to go. (See part 1!)
In the meantime, I have a quick but exciting announcement. If you are wavering on going to Dragon*Con, a ginormous geek-fest in Atlanta over Labor Day weekend, waffle no more. Not only will there be the lovely Skeptrack, Space Track, and Science Track, but the Atlanta Skeptics are once again having their annual Star Party in honor of Jeff Medkeff. The event will be hosted by the Bad Astronomer himself, Phil Plait, the lovely and inspiring Pamela Gay, and me! Here is a preview from TAM9, photographed by Bruce Press:
Now you know you want to be there, enjoy the stars, and kick cancer in the BUTT!
