Happy Life Day!
It's that time of the year again . . . to reflect on the fact that some pieces of entertainment are so bad that they actually transcend the familiar "So-Bad-It's-Good" phenomenon and fly right past bad on their way to being unwatchably horrible. The paradig...
I have first hand experience that exactly corresponds to this cartoon: a few years ago, we had a bunch of friends from out of town over for an early December holiday party. I had heard rumors of the existence of the Holiday Special years earlier, but thanks to the internets, I confirmed that it ...

Hmmm. . . . So my blog posts go to Google+? I guess that's cool.
So I've fallen off the blogging wagon pretty thoroughly. But this is blog-worthy: I was informed by the Dean of Arts and Sciences that I will be recommend for tenure and promotion to associate profess...

I finally sold my beloved Canon 350D (bought a 60D at the beginning of the summer). You and I've taken a lot of photos in the last seven years! May you have a pleasant retirement.

Photos from our trip to Yellowstone wolf-watching trip this winter. Much warmer than the last two times. This was also the first time we've seen moose in the park! Very exciting.

New Web Page!
I decided to make my life a little easier (I think) by signing up for a web hosting service . . . and domain  name. Because, why not? Behold : http://www.mhslater.com More content will appear in due course (presumably).
Welcome to "Slater Reports" in which I bring to your attention whatever it is that I'm currently finding interesting, important, funny, or depressing enough to launch into the blogosphere (in no particular order). Is anyone reading this? I have no idea. Why am I doing this?

Photos from the Galápagos
We didn't make it to the southwest islands — so no waved albatrosses —, but getting to Genovesa more than made up for it. Lots of nesting and mating blue and red-footed boobies in addition to many frigate birds with chicks and juveniles still in nest — all of which were pretty much totally ...
