    That is too funny :)…As I was reading, I wondered how you came up with all of those scientific terms…then I got to the end. 🙂 Don’t take that comment to mean that you aren’t science minded though…your Pluto book review and Einstein theory bit in an earlier blog makes you more than qualified. 🙂

      I do take credit for boson and microfarad, though. When you have engineer and scientist friends, you sure do glean a lot.
