Lots of telescopes!
Actually they don't show well in the picture but you could see at least 4.

The number of Nobel laureates that I've had a beer with has just gone up by two: congratulations Brian and Adam! (And Saul, feel free to drop by for a pint the next time you're in London, Ontario.)

Ah, I had a student at the Gemini observatory (undergrad, there for a summer internship) that just got back. If she was still there I would have had meet you, she is cool. Anyway, observing or not, Hawaii is still Hawaii, so enjoy!

It's been a little over a year since John left us too soon. I hadn't seen Bob Kirshner's thoughtful obituary until recently; it's worth a read.

How come I get the questions about black holes and not the ones about chocolate?
— Is chocolate part of a food group? The natural tendency these days when faced with such a question is to turn to the internet.

Ah, September 1st. Or, as we call it at our house, August 32nd. We're trying to abolish September to make summer last longer. So Duncan's birthday would be August 44th, mine would be August 153rd -- what do you think?
