Here are some of the most interesting science news articles I read this week:

Have a good weekend, everyone, and I hope it's not too busy for you. (I have Homecoming activities, a bridal shower, and two birthday parties to attend this weekend. I'll be lucky if I get any housework done, let alone proofreading!) See you Monday.

Just enjoy your weekend. Housework is overrated.

I do too, but apparently I should switch to Granny Smith. Humm, they do make good caramel apples...
