In amongst all the project work that kept me so busy yesterday, there was also an announcement that an entire section (pre-clinical) here at Aptuit would be closed down in 60 days. Nearly 100 people will be out of a job.
In totally other news (reminded by nkcmike) my strawberries are producing the most berries I have ever seen in the four years I have been keeping them alive. I think the flowers are done, but there are still quite a few new berries coming in. It's only about 6 plants in a trough-type tub, but I have been getting a strawberry or two every other day or so for several weeks. Before, I was getting maybe two strawberries a season (neighborhood critters were getting a few more). Not that these are particularly flavorful - I think I have only the hardiest variety left and it seem the strawberries suffer for the hardiness.
