As in any month, there are good things and bad things happening. Bad: COVID19, NSF proposal rejected. Unseasonably early ice storm with power outage. And COVID 19. Oh well.

Good: my book was submitted to OUP and is now in production. That feels good. Also, the collection of species we house here at OU is now officially a stock center, the International Stock Center for Livebearing Fishes (ISCLF). I’m actually very excited about this, although I admit that the acronym is terrible….

Also good: I am looking for a new Graduate student to join the lab in 2021. Let me know if you are interested!

Finally, it is time to spend more time outside again! Watch some birds!

Six gulls over Texas (actually a few more…..)
