I realise that reading this blog has been the equivalent of watching paint dry lately*. I've been a bit occupied and haven't quite got work and life balanced yet. It will fall into place soon.
In the meantime, here's something that might make you smile. In a recent comment, Lynsey of Marginalia pointed me in the direction of the White Island crater web cam. Check out the shots from lunchtime, when the shadows are short. Those vulcanologists are wags.
Thanks, Lynsey. That really cheered me up.
* I was going to say watching the grass grow, but that would be interesting.
