I have a lot of “Santas” to thank this year, folks who did nice things for me and made me feel special and loved. This amazing new Bug Lady logo was designed by my sweetie and rendered into coolness by our amazing friend The Dude! Many thanks to both.

I also have to give a shout out to Mrs. VerDuin’s students at Wood Middle School in Alameda. I spent eight weeks with them recently completing a student teaching assignment and these were some really polite and clever Jedi Knights of Science. We did lots of hands on experiments, and they even sat patiently and took good notes when I dared to lecture. The students and Mrs. VerDuin really helped me get my teaching mojo back, and for that I thank you!
