I wanted to let people know that starting tomorrow I'll be taking some vacation time. Internet access will be rather limited - I'll be checking my mail some in the evenings, but there will be no posting until the middle of next week. Science will have to march on without me for a few days!

Have a good vacation Derek. We will wait at your return for a post about antitumoral properties of injectable Vitamin C :)

My two favorite blogs, this one and Lamentations on Chemistry, both on vacation at the same time. Did I miss the memo, or is there a conspiracy? We've already lost electricity here at work TWICE this morning. Someone is trying to keep me away!

I'm sure the industry will manage to stumble from missed opportunity to corporate catastrophe and back again without you, also.

If not, we might have found the problem. ;)

Oh, wait, you were between jobs for a few months and things didn't improve. Next suspect, please.

Enjoy yourself. I'm really looking forward to hearing the rest from the Alzheimer's conference.

NOOOOOOOoooooooooooooooooooo.....

You sure you can't make a quick secret post while no one is watching? Even a story from grad school in two to three paragraphs will do.
