I saw this sign outside the children's nursery at our church this morning...
Warning to parents to pick up their children from the nursery or else...

Tonight, after the NASA KM conference, many of us went to dinner at Burger Continental, a local hangout for CalTech folks. Wendy joined me, Jeanne Holm, David Pender, and others for dinner.
