the heat, the horse, the hat, the hot

It's 11:45pm and 86°F. I'm swimming in humidity.

Somewhat miraculously, the FDIBS budget worked out today. Never co-organize a conference. It's a lot of work. Although I am getting reimbursed for the six stakes. We bought the secretaries flowers.

And in other Indiana HPS news, Prof. Bill Newman makes the NY Times today in an article about a conference on alchemy at the Chemical Heritage Foundation. Pretty cool. Cesare Pastorino gave a talk at the same conference, but is not mentioned in the article. Also, I met a historian from the Chemical Heritage Foundation at FDIBS. He is from Newfoundland. He was a very nice guy.
