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: A couple of Announcements
OK, a couple of brief announcements:
First, the Operation Baen Bulk fundraiser was a resounding success, we reached our goal of $2000 within 16 hours, and closed the donation window at 26hrs with a whopping $2851.33 in donations. If you donated because of this link, I thank you. If you're wondering what I'm talking about, see Friday's blog (7/13).
Second, I have a couple of book reviews to run. Next up, WIRED - which is a book a Neuroscientist can read without cringing! I'll run that review on Wednesday. If I can manage to get some more written, they'll go on Friday.
However, after that, I will be off at a professional meeting. Unfortunately I do NOT have any filler planned, and unless I get a great idea that does not require me to do much writing, I'll have to put the blog on hiatus until August 1.
So the final announcement is that I hope you enjoy the blog. Send me suggestions, ideas and requests, and I'll try to fill them. Sometimes I get inspired while traveling, and I can write and post some travelogue material, but it will be at least Tuesday (7/24) before I can get anything posted on the trip.
Thanks for reading, and I'll be back before you know it!
