Before this post starts tripping along the frothy path it normally takes, I want to extend my sympathy to all of those affected by the wildfires on our dear West Coast. Many have lost their lives and many more their homes; this fire season has been relentless. I would also like to thank – fromContinue reading “A new school year!”
Well, for those of us in California right now it is HOT! And how about that thunder and lightning storm last night? Happily, none of our California-born pets realized that they were supposed to get freaked out by the thunder so they slept right through. As it happens, tomorrow is the kids’ first day backContinue reading “Dang it’s hot!”
Ok friends, I could tell you or I could just SHOW YOU: What!! Our pandemic panic-purchased chickens started laying eggs this week! Now of course this was always the idea, right? But despite knowing this outcome in theory, because none of us has an agricultural background, we remain completely bamboozled and amazed. And how aboutContinue reading “#proudparent”
Dear readers, I am back! I have neglected this blog dreadfully. I think what ended up happening is that we had our June celebration for our superb HumBio seniors and then I dissolved into a heap. And then time kept going by and you know that feeling where more and more time is passing andContinue reading “Back on the wagon”

The family and I biked around Stanford to gather pictures in the sunshine to send to you all. Wishing you all a wonderful summer. Sophomores and juniors, looking forward to seeing youContinue reading “Spring quarter classes done!”

You know, the timestamp on this blog thing is brutal. The last post was May 3. Today is… a fair amount later. The delay, in part, is due to my pondering what my next post might be about when sooooo little is happening our lives. Desperation finally led to the following thought process: Hey! IContinue reading “A diversion”
Hold it, wasn’t Easter like…3 weeks ago? Easter was actually on April 12 (I just looked it up) but I’ll be honest; this year, it snuck up and caught us completely unaware. In our house, however, disregarding Easter was not popular. For the kids, it was unacceptable to miss out on an opportunity to stockContinue reading “Easter egg hunt!”
It was so sad this week to learn of the news of Donald Kennedy’s death on April 21, 2020. In addition to making key contributions to science, to Stanford, and to the nation, Don was one of the founders and early Directors of the Human Biology Program. I wrote to alumni on Friday to share theContinue reading “Remembering Don Kennedy”
