Also, I've been going back and forth about whether to mention this, but as long as I'm going on about myself, it turns out that I won the Bergmann-Wheeler thesis prize which was awarded at the GR20 conference in Warsaw. The prize was sponsored by the journal Classical and Quantum Gravity, which I have sometimes published in, although all of my articles are also freely available on the arXiv, of course. The prize was awarded for my proof of the Generalized Second Law for black holes. In light of all the other excellent work out there, I feel deeply honored be recongnized in this way.
I have also added St. Martin LaBar of Sun and Shield to my blog roll. Not only does he blog about both scientific and theological topics, he also is a role model in that he always takes a moderate and gentle tone, even with commenters who disagree with him. His consistent tone of encouragement is commendable.
