New blog address!

Sorry to mess everyone up, but I have changed my blog address and shortened my screen name. My name is now Addy N. and the address (which is much more logical) is untenured-no-no!

I'll comment on as many blogs as I can to get the new info out there!

I was put to shame by Deb's post yesterday, so I dragged myself out for a walk today- the ONLY one this week (3.89 miles with a SLOW 16:28 pace).

Love the new URL, Addy.

All junior faculty, myself included, should have one like that.

Thanks for the heads up on the change. But why????

Thanks! I've updated my blogroll.

Found you!

Did you ever explain why you chose "adenostoma" in the first place? If so, I missed it.

Thanks for the comments, everyone! I decided to change my blog address to reflect the name of the blog (rather than my user name) and change my screen name to be shorter. I was just imagining everyone trying to figure out how to say or spell it and thought it would be easier to just shorten it. USJogger asked about why I picked that name in the first place. When I was a grad student in Southern California, I did research on a plant called 'chamise'. The scientific name is Adenostoma fasciculatum. I use adenostoma as a name a lot, because usually nobody else has picked it! When I first started blogging, I didn't know what my blog would be, so I just used my screen name as the blog address. Now that I have established the content, I thought it was time to make a change.

Thanks for the heads-up, Addy! I liked Adenostoma, but I'm a big ol' nerd.

Hey Dr. BH: Of course, you mentioned you are in the life sciences, so you would appreciate a geeky plant name! I bet you never stumbled over the pronunciation either (I 'hear' words in my head when I read, so unfamiliar long names trip me up). Nobody complained about the long name, but I figured I would simplify things. The "N." is for ...nostoma (if you hadn't figured that out!)

Are you still in "big 10 small college town"? I bet it isn't as small as Oxford! If you can get past the culture shock, small towns do have some advantages- you can forget to lock your doors, there's almost no traffic, etc. It does take some getting used to. Hopefully, you are not too far from a decent size city- we can drive to Cincinnati in 45 minutes to get our fill of Indian and Thai food.

I am indeed still here. It seems small to me (compared to NYC) but I'm sure Oxford is WAY smaller. We are pretty close to a decent sized city, too, but as it turns out, it seems all of our needs will actually be met here! A very pleasant surprise.
