And then I gave a talk at my wife’s university, and th...read more »
I am so far behind on...well, pretty much everything. But I've come to the conclusion (and it's kind of a relief) that I am not working much slower than I ever did. In fact,the SO asked yesterday if I was "on" something given the(apparently) frantic spe... read more »

I love to garden, but having no actual yard in Boston means that I have to make my own opportunities to play in the dirt. I’ll take any excuse, really. My idea of fun is wandering through local greenhouses, inhaling the sweet scent of healthy plants, and fantasizing about my dream garden — which...read more »

Americans who follow the machinations of the British royal family, including their marriages, pregnancies, divorces, affairs, baby bumps, drug scandals, fashion pas and the like are stupid.
