Once a year, we slow the centrifuges, quit the cloning, and lose the lab coats, all in honor of relaxation. Our company party gives us a chance to talk about everything outside the lab. We grab a glass of wine or beer and salute the delicious lobsters that fought so bravely. We kick soccer balls and toss Frisbees. We compare notes on sand castle construction.

To all our readers: Enjoy the summer! Soak in the sun like a solar panel and bring all that energy back to your work. Just don't get sand in your microscope.
