Life outside Antarctica

Here is a picture of my girlfriend, Gwen, back in California yesterday autographing copies of her first book, The Iliad, the Odyssey, and the Aeneid, which was released by Scholastic Books in January. I am so proud of her, and her work is receiving great reviews.
Today the Laurence M. Gould sailed into Palmer, bringing in most of our winterover crew, and when she leaves this Sunday she'll be delivering home a very happy summer crew, who've been here anywhere from 2 months to 1 year. I assisted some of the new arrivals with orientation, and tonight we'll be having a science lecture delivered by Maggie Amsler about life here at Ye Olde Palmer Station as it was over 25 years ago when she first came here for science.
