Thanks Molly! I spent my birthday wandering the modern art museum ('cause everyone thinks of modern art when they think of Rome), on a special tour of the necropolis under the Vatican and eating Indian food with good friends (another thing that everyone does in Rome), so it was a great day.
How is Utah life treating you?

That sounds enviable indeed. Now I know to think of Indian food and modern art when I think of Rome.

Oh, I'm sorry that I missed this. My excuse is that I spent almost the whole day traveling on my way to a field site.

Anyway, happy belated birthday, I hope you had a great day! It certainly sounds like it was. Enjoy the rest of your trip!

Oh, there's the answer to my question on Sparkling Squirrel Year! Sounds like a pretty awesome birthday to me? Who are your friends in Rome? Do they live there or did you you just hook up there?

Sounds like a fantastic day in Rome!
Things in Utah are great-- I've been meaning to upload some photos I took of the mountainside covered with Balsamorhiza (not sure of the spelling). It is a neat experience to be around such large open spaces again. One of my new friends here keeps several species of Osmia at his house-- some of which are specialists on Balsamorhiza and Wyethia, the latter apparently blooming a little later. So it is especially nice, after looking at the dead specimens, to get to see some of the species alive and get to know something about their natural history.
Lucy is very happy about our fenced-in back yard and experiencing playing fetch for the first time in her life. I planted a garden and am enjoying seeing some of the seedling emerge. I started biking to work and am enjoying that a lot (much less traffic than in DC! but also MUCH hillier)
