Well, I'm going to *try* to get restarted on a MWF schedule. That's Monday-Wednesday-Friday, not Maybe-Whenever-Fugeddaboudit! Most of the material that I have posted for The Lab Rats' Guide to the Brain is done... written... posted. I would really like to get it compiled into a complete manuscript, but that's difficult to find the time right now.
I want to continue explaining how the brain works, finding news releases and interpreting for my readers, so I am going to go with a slightly shorter format, and go with the following:
Monday FUNNY - The GUIDE Wednesdays - SCIENCE Fridays (News & Comment).Headings:
The GUIDE: Posts from "The Lab Rats' Guide to the Brain"
FUNNY: Science and Lab Humor, etc.
NEWS: Neat stories about Science in the News
COMMENT: Opinion and Science in the News
NEAT STUFF: Interesting science pages and neat links
REVIEWS: Book reviews of fiction and nonfiction
FICTION: Original short and serialized stories

NEWS: DeepSouthCon 50 - Report
Some of my friends and readers will have already gotten a taste of the fun and frivolity that was DeepSouthCon #50 held this past weekend in Huntsville, AL. DeepSouthCon, or DSC, is a Science Fiction convention that is normally held in conjunction with regular annual convention - thus "Stellarcon", held in Greensboro/High Point in March each year can bid (and win) the right to be "DSC' for that year. For the fiftieth DSC, a group of southern fans (boosted by Baen Books publisher Toni Weisskopf - herself quite active in southern fandom for years before joining Baen) decided to bid for an independent one-time convention to be held in Huntsville, site of the very first DSC 49 years ago. When I contacteed the convention organizers about participating on panels at DSC, I was surprised and pleased to receive a reply from Toni Weisskopf, who promptly set up a schedule for me and later conspired with me regarding video recordings and eventual publication of panel videos.
