Not this blog...it's staying put (although it's a bit neglected and suffering from a serious case of attention deficit disorder). But the lab's physical presence is moving - from this space, to a spot about 70 miles north. Yeah, it's a long story (that's not meant for these pages) - and it's why I've been so preoccupied for months (well, it's one reason why I've been so preoccupied for months). Bottomline: as of today, all of the Microbial Lab's microorganisms were relocated to the new space - which involved a large amount of dry ice, numerous large coolers, and cold fingers. But I am happy (and relieved) to report that all of our microbial subjects are safely stowed in their new -80C freezer.
So, I suppose I've told this story by spilling the end first. Oh, it's not the end end - and I suppose I'll eventually tell the story, in pieces, snapshots, soundbytes. At the end of the day, at the end of this day - what it represents is change. Inevitable (and not asked for but perhaps much needed) change.
