I just learned about this great website that I urge each and every one to go to and to sign up:
http://www.armyofwomen.org/. It is a combined effot of volunteers, researchers, fundraisers, etc against breast cancer. Please check it out.
I am reading a great book - The Know It All by A.J. Jacobs. It is all about this journalists decision to read the encyclopedia and how it affects his life and vice versa. Funny, erudite. I am enjoying it thoroughly. And I have decided I need to rename my blog after a book of essays by Anglo-Irish chemist Robert Boyle because I love the title: Occassional Reflections on Several Subjects.
