Blogging hiatus

My younger daughter is getting married later this week and I am having a lot of friends and relatives visit over the next week, some as houseguests, so this blog will be on hiatus for a while.

I will of course be monitoring the blog from time to time. If something really compelling comes up and I have a few minutes of time alone I may blog about it. Otherwise, I will return towards the end of next week once all festivities are over and all the houseguests have left.

    Enjoy your break and best wishes Mano. (Yes I do mean that despite some of the things you’ve said about me recently and our disaagreements on a couple of political issues.)

    If you do get the chance this :

    The launch of NASA’s Orbiting Carbon Observatory-2 (OCO-2) aboard a United Launch Alliance Delta II rocket is scheduled for Wednesday, July 2 at 5:56 a.m. EDT (2:56 a.m. PDT) from Space Launch Complex 2 at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.

    May be worth noting and watching – no doubt this’ll be screening live on NASA TV online.

    Nothing has made me appreciate strangers so much as spending times with relatives.

    Your blog is my daily tonic, Professor. Having said that, congratulations to the happy couple.

    @#8, Iorn: Good one. Reminded me of, “where there’s a will, there are relatives”.
