On the plus side - I have been more active in Twitter - so I am still alive, but apparently only able to communicate in 140 word bursts. Sigh.
I have been working on some new research in addition to lots of administrative planning/drowning in a sea of paperwork.
This is cool stuff ... remotely controlled underwater vehicle that I can videotape with as well as collecting samples (water and soil and grabber arm) ...
So still alive but goodness knows when I can get back to more regular blogging. Probably not while stuck in admin mode.
