Yep…. coronavirus globe glass and polymer clay ornaments that are made to be accurate representations of the surface look of the corona virus. Just for fun and remembering the headaches of this particular pandemic. Order from the website here.
The complexities of biology, physics, math, etc may never be completely understood — thus it is better to have questions that cannot be answered than answers that cannot be questioned.

When I speak to my colleages, even those with whom I have published scientific papers in good journals, I find they don’t really understand me or my “points” and I don’t really understand them and their field, not because of the complexity of concepts, but mostly because of the additional definitions that words gain over time, the infinite amount of information available, and because of word useage, order, definitions and language nuances.
This was just so cute that I had to abscond it and repost
Per Rosanne on the news this 30th day of May, I heard on NPR one of the best retorts to a comment attempting to reassign blame for a racist comment from self to Ambien……. Reply from the drug company was spot on and i am sure it will become a classic quote. It went something like this….
