>We made it-the family is officially established in the new house. The park across the street has been deemed acceptable (there are swings and a merry-go-round), and at least some of the boxes are unpacked. Whew! Now if only I could find something to wear other than a sweater, things would be golden.

          Here we are in the park across the street from the new digs!

As for settling in here in the blogosphere, I've decided to start going by GertyZ (maybe GZ for extra-short). This name is an unnatural mishmash tribute to two of my favorite women scientists (historically, I have many contemporary faves but it felt weird to use any parts of those names): Gery Cori and Barbary McClintock (Zea Mays, get it? sigh. No fears, I won't quit my day job). Anywho, I am too lazy busy to write out Balanced Instability every time I comment on a blot. I assume I haven't been around long enough for this change to really confuse anyone. Sorry for the inconsistency.

On a totally unrelated note: this is one of my favorite quotes from Werner Heisenberg:
"Natural science does not simply describe and explain nature; it is part of the interplay between nature and ourselves; it describes nature as exposed to our method of questioning."
