Books I have known and loved
And was lucky enough to get paid to read them.
I will be adding to this from time to time.

Molecular Expressions: Science, Optics and You - Powers Of 10: Interactive Java Tutorial
View the Milky Way at 10 million light years from the Earth. Then move through space towards the Earth in successive orders of magnitude until you reach a tall oak tree just outside the buildings of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee, Florida. After that, begin to move from the actual size of a leaf into a microscopic world that reveals leaf cell walls, the cell nucleus, chromatin, DNA and finally, into the subatomic universe of electrons and protons.

Accelerated doses better for head and neck cancer

. . .
Tomorrow morning I meet with my radiologist. She will go over with me what she advises I do next. MRI?, CTscan?, X-RAYS?, Bloodtests?, One or more of those anyway to determine, I suppose, if the cancer has been put into remission. What I plan to tell her is "no more treatments, no more tests".
Though I am feeling pretty good at present, I have just emerged from a summer of hell, both physically and emotionally. The emotional dimension I acknowledge resposibility for (though that doesn't diminish the pain one iota). The physical distress is beyond my responsibility, except you could argue I could have led a more healthy lifestyle. But that's water under the bridge. Disease strikes people of all manner of lifestyles, so-called healthy and not My Dad had the same cancer I have, he just got it at a later age.
Of course maybe my radiologist will scare the bejesus out of me and I will begrudgingly go along with the program. The bejesus has already been scared out of me though.
As for me: "I'm just looking for a lover but I haven't found her yet.
She'll be nothing like I pictured her to be." (Young)
Sorry, my mind started to wander for a minute. There are over 4 billion of us on this planet and it still gets lonely.
