    which I had missed. I have a couple of small bits of iron meteorite that originated most recently from the boring old asteroid belt.

    We are now seeing things we only dreamed of seeing a brief lifetime ago!

    Off topic: I also have a collection of paleolithic tools. I bought them years ago from a German couple I knew who spent their vacations walking French farm fields and North African sands. They also used to resift the spoil of turn of the century digs. I suppose now that I'm an old guy I'll need to find an anthropology department somewhere that will put the collection to some use after I've gone to join the toolmakers!

    The best lack all conviction, while the worst Are full of passionate intensity.
