Welcome back. I hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend.

I will be in Washington DC over the next few days, at TEDMED, so am not sure if and when I will be able to do the nightly links - but I'll try my best. I have scheduled in advance a lot of posts for the Guest Blog, Expeditions, The SA Incubator and more, so my absence will be inconspicuous, I hope.

As it is Monday, here is the brand new Image of the Week.
