Greetings from Kelowna BC! I've been teaching at UBCO for a couple weeks now, and it's been going quite well so far. Teaching is quite a bit different from research, I must say. I can't decide which I prefer, but given I want to be a professor someday I should be good at both.

The week before teaching I spent just down the valley in Naramata with a bunch of radio astronomers and grad students for a summer school on the Interstellar Medium. It was so much fun, and a great way to get back into the Canadian astronomical community. I'd better send Eric my travel claim form though before I lose it under a pile of course notes or something.

There was a UFO conference in Edmonton Alberta this past weekend. A friend of mine works for the Telus Science Center up there so she was all excited about getting to meet Stanton Friedman. I wish I'd known about it sooner; I might've tried to get some SETI@home representation there. Apparently over 1000 people attended it.
