This likely means my contract will be extended and I can continue work on a project that I've devoted most of the last 2 years on. Wheeeeeee!

    And thanks to everyone else for sharing their great news! This thread always cheers me up.
    It is so cool when the grants go though. Congratulations! Now all you need to do is hire a postdoc to help you with your work and buy a bunch of new equipment.

    Wanted to share some happy news with you all. My neighbors dog followed someone out of the driveway, and apparently got lost. We were all afraid of the worse, and went looking for her the past two days. When I came home from school this afternoon, over in the neighbors yard was the doggie. She had found a home with one of our neighbors a few miles from us, and they had been searching for her owners. They fed her roast beef and potatoes and made her a big comfy bed. We were just elated that she is home safe and sound.

    Congratulations to everyone's good news...loved your doggie story, CB.

    We found out last night that our daughter was selected Student of the Month for her senior class. They select 10 kids/year, and there are almost 1,000 kids in her class, so it's quite the big deal. The school holds a banquet at a restaurant, and her teachers, and Mr. Rose and I say great and wonderful things about her, they televise it on our local station, and pictures go in the newspaper. I'm just a little proud.

    That's so wonderful, Roseskid! You have every reason to be proud - that's quite an honor. And they televise it too - how fun! Give her hugs from us for a job well done!

    That's great news Rose. You and Mr. Rose must be very proud of her and you have every right to be. Congratulate her for us.
