Ebola is a frightening disease for many reasons. High fatality rate, high infectious rate, rapid travel through a community, strikes at those who are needed most in a health emergency… but perhaps the worst is the way you die, your organs a bloody soup. I’ve read a lot about Ebola, and it’s cousin the Marburg… Read More The Bloody Death

I asked for suggestions on what to write about today, and got into a long chatty conversation with much silliness. This is why I love my friends. Sorry, Joe, I’m not writing about manly beards and why I like them today. Nor am I going to write about cat-rotating, Christopher, I have a dog, and… Read More Cats, Magic, and the Hugos

Rounding up links of interest into the corral for you to peruse and try out… Here’s a fun question: what does coffee have in common with the Enlightenment and the American Revolution?

The rest of the story will appear at According to Hoyt in the morning… come back for the link then! Here is the link!
Well, a little bit, anyway. Since my time travel has mostly been to pre-Revolutionary War days, and his to a Medieval society (even if one that never truly existed), taking a little detour to the 1950s was nothing. We spent most of our day visiting with the Folks in Kentucky, then headed for home,… Read More Stepping Back in Time
Ok, so I’m being silly… I was thinking ‘link round-up’ and that title is what came out. However! There’s some really interesting stuff here, and I’m going to try and do this more often, since I frequently come across blogs and articles I’d like to share. First, a link to a very important science topic. “Belief… Read More Ride ‘Em Cowgirl
This book comes too late for me. But it might be in time for my kids, and I plan to present my eldest with a copy soon, as she heads into her sophmore year of high school. But as I enter my Junior year as a college student, pursuing a dual degree in Microbiology and… Read More Review: The New School
