Hello friends,and welcome to my science website. Together we'll explore the infinite and the microscopic, the ancient and the not-yet-dreamed-of, the people, places, and things of science. My aim is to show you what makes scientists tick and why they love what they do. We're all scientists in a way because we all do 'experiments' in our life, observe the results, and do things according to what we find out. Scientists do exactly the same except they do it more 'scientifically'.
I plan to use this website as a combination science journal and educational tool to talk about the interesting, the unusual, and--of course--the curious. I want to tell you about beautiful and unusual plants, delicious fungi, strange bird behavior, leaping lizards, doodlebugs, scientific research, tidbits from netsurfing, and a million other items, some of which at least I hope will interest, intrigue, and entertain you. Someone defined a specialist as a person who knows an immense amount about a very little. That is all very well and I am happy that my dentist and my auto mechanic are specialists. But the mind of man seems to me to be made for wide leaps from subject to subject together with the unique ability to make connections and draw new inferences from a myriad of seemingly unrelated ideas. Plus, looking at things that way is just pure fun! I like to use my brain and I like to see new things and learn about them. If you are the same, then I hope you will enjoy my ramblings, personal, unstructured and diverse as they are, but hopefully with some bits of wisdom. And please! Comments are encouraged and disagreements--thoughtfully presented--are welcome.
So, take a moment to read what I have to say. Sign the guest book and tell me what you think. The internet is the greatest invention ever for testing out new ideas. If we spent more time talking to one another, perhaps we would find that we're all the same at heart.
