Discussing chirality…and other big words.

Got into an interesting discussion on why life-molecules on Earth are of one chirality (handedness)—and lo! meteorites from elsewhere in the solar system that bring in such molecules are likewise -handed.

Heard anything on this?

Catch-22….as in…bitchy moment…


As in—I have to refrain from aspirin and blood thinners for the next 7 days because of a routine medical test…

As in—all painkillers but Tylenol are in this category.

As in—no amount of Tylenol works at all for me, except to give me an uncomfortable throat—I think I may be allergic to it.


Part of Earth’s Water is Older than the Sun

Amazing thought, but likely so, if you think about it… Earth’s Water Older…

Sheijicon pix are up…

The Pictures

I have been remiss!

Sorry, folks…these are the drapes.

I made them wide enough so that the insulated drape tucks in behind. Some of you might recognize the top part of the hangy-down. They are the runners from the wedding!


Well enough to start the walking campaign.

6:45 at the lab. Glug.

I swear ultrasound has side effects. I just fairly well collapsed when I got home. Due to that or the fact our sky is going that peculiar shade of not quite a color but verging on brown that indicates Idaho is burning.

I think I’m going to spray some Lysol about and see if that [...]

Actually got out of the house today…off to Costco.

After breakfast at the waffles place….

I knew I couldn’t go the hike around Costco, so I asked, and indeed there are wheelchairs for loan, so I got one, persuaded Jane I’d be the shopping cart if she’d push, and we whirled around Costco at a speed at which I began to protest whiplash– But [...]

Jane got this new sports energy drink…

She likes it. I’m picking up a flavor that makes me want to down it fast. But…if it’s a good, healthy way to remember the damn vitamins, that’s a good thing. Ook. I drank it before coffee. Now I want a lot of coffee. One thing I don’t think this stuff has is caffeine. Maybe [...]
