    Weird! There’s a comment from yesterday up on a blog post, and I certainly haven’t deleted any (what with they’re being not at all objectionable!).

    Yeah, no coffee, danish, etc, anymore at study section. Although the members can take a collection and pay for their own catering if desired.

  3. Linda Says:

    Horsies are such fun!! Thank you for the recommendations you and your readers gave me on the Ask the Grumpies post you wrote about my original questions. I am a bit horse crazy these days. Many evenings after work I find myself on YouTube a lot these days regularly watching videos like “How to Practice Your Classical Seat in Horseback Riding.” ;-)

    It’s not just scientific review sessions, it’s all meetings funded with federal dollars. I work on a large federal grant through ACF and we are forbidden any sort of food or refreshment during our all-day meetings in DC. So fun spending eight hours in a windowless room without any coffee, tea, or snacks. It’s also fun to watch people scatter at lunch time to run and find some food and get back within an hour. Hotels that try to draw conferences/meetings do seem to be responding to this by offer snacks and beverages but at this point it is still unknown to participants whether or not that will be the case until they show up.

    Someone higher up spends buckets of money on private planes and lavish parties and it’s us plebes that suffer. Somehow I doubt the experience of the big wigs has changed much.
