Off to the Hole

...Woods Hole, that is, where I'm staffing a meeting for the rest of the week. Blogging will be light for the next few days.

I just found out that before Woods Hole became a center for scientific activity, it was the site of the Pacific Guano Works, a major producer of fertilizer in the late 19th century and a cause of much grief to the residents of the town whenever the wind was from the west. I find this a lot funnier than I probably should.

If you find yourself in the mood for tunes, up here in New England, drop me a line. It'd be nice to see you again!

Aw, man. Poor planning. I don't have any instruments with me, and I didn't plan any downtime into this trip at all. It would have been fun to sneak away for some tuneage. Maybe next time.
