Dave made it back to Saint Louis today. He gave a ride to a friend that is starting law school here, at Wash U. In other Dave news, he recently forwarded a copy of a scientific paper that he is listed as a co-author. The paper covers research on cancer in mice. Dave’s involvement with this paper’s research dates back to his early years at Rochester. He was working in Dr. Alice’s lab at the time. Interestingly, his authorship lists him with a Master of Science degree, which he does not have. Dave submitted his qualifier for his PhD this week. He hopes to hear back in a few weeks. Next weekend Dave flies to Colorado.
The sand bowl is a hollow that lies in-between the cabin and the beach. On days when it is too windy to sit on the beach, it makes for an alternative to staying inside all day. If the sun is out it is a nice compromise on not quite beach days.
