"Well, I'm Back," He Said

By Chris Mooney | May 29, 2007 8:24 am

Back from Italy, that is. I had a great, relaxing time in Venice and, later, in Udine and the little town of Manzano, where I’d gone for an old friend’s beautiful (and entirely secular!) wedding.

But no more on that, it’s entirely non-science related.

This post is just to let you know of my return and, above all, to thank our guest bloggers: Norm Doering, Bryan Mignone, Mark Drapeau….and last but hardly least, Sheril, who I think has an incredible knack for this. I calculate that her posts from last week generated 96 comments! Not bad for a rookie.

So feel free to use the comments here to thank our guests once again–guests who are welcome back any time. And in a bit, I’ll get back to blogging, much refreshed…..

P.S.: Bonus points if you recognize the quote in the title.

P.P.S.: Actually, while you should still feel encouraged to praise/thank her below, I’ve got the feeling that we haven’t seen the last post from Sheril yet….

    Wow, I thought all the nerds who read this blog would be jumping to answer ;>.

    The quote is the last line from Lord of the Rings. Dennis has it right.
