      Wee Mama, wxorknot

      I trust the same for you.

        It's an odd thing, because I can recall being 18 and a master of all. (sigh)

        It was a week or so ago I made the comment with regards to meteorology/science; the more I learn the less I really know.

        If it invoves science, I seem not able to satisfy the thirst. One subject matter leads to another, to another and so on.

        Just recently discovered your science tidbits and it is wonderful.
        The links are incredible and I cannot thank you enough for all the work you put into it.

        So it is I, who thanks you.

          I read these stories and many more during the course of a week.  The real pleasure comes from sharing and finding folks who enjoy learning something new about real science.  The state of the world today allows far too many people to deal in fake science or real make believe.  It is wonderful to have a small community to share this stuff.

          Please feel free to add your story findings any time at all.  Sharing science makes life better for all of us.
