Fortune and fame to the watchful and patient!

For this event I have patiently waited! Dry Rivers is one of the legends you so creatively constructed for Spider Silk to bring the events of the past to the forefront of the first home hinted in your wonderful epic. Interwoven in this particular story are the references to the Minoan culture after ...

Boldly go to the theater and catch this flick!

I will enthusiastically agree with Caliban’s assessment of the new Star Trek that hit the movie circuit this weekend. Although, I am a trusted supporter of the original series and cast, this was a fine prequel that alluded to many of the factors presented in past scripts. I found that the selected a...

Large Hadron Collider

I saw an interview the other day with Dr. Michio Kaku (Physics of the Impossible-great book, thanks Calvin and Athena!) that the initial particle beams were due for injection in the Large Hadron Collider this weekend. Has anyone been able to corroborate this action? The theory behind this applicatio...

The Physics of the Impossible

Thank you both for your thoughts and encouragement. While checking my e-mails not ten minutes ago, I noticed a confirmation and immediate shipping notice for this very book. Sheesh, I must have placed the order subconsciously in the dead of night because I never remember pressing the yes icon! If it...

Physics of the Impossible

Below is a brief synopsis of a book I found on a topic that is very interesting and would like to read it. Has anyone reviewed or glanced through a copy? I am a member of the Scientific American Book Club and it is a featured selection. It says it is for all readers and since I had not studied physi...

Addition to the Gallery

GASP! Heather, this newest installment in your ever expanding portfolio of Spider Silk art is absolutely stunning. Of course, it is 12:20AM in the morning and I nearly slid from the chair at the beauty of your usual extraordinary detail. Give me a day or so and I will give it my fullest attention an...

Happy 41st Anniversary Star Trek

I am really showing my age today. While glancing through my shelf of Star Trek memorabilia I saw my old TV Guide from September 8, 1966 and sighed. On this day, 41 years ago the first episode was featured and I remember sitting in front of the tube with a "Do Not Disturb" sign prominently ...

The attraction of Science Fiction

Calvin, I know your lecture was today about “Why to write or read Science Fiction” and I hope you had a receptive audience. If you have a moment, I would love to see a note commenting on your subject. I, like Rene, am a romantic at heart and hope for a better tomorrow either in life or through the g...

Rowling Redux

As usual, another clever and extremely insightful composition by Caliban! I too, have enjoyed Rowling’s Potterverse and am in agreement that the first 3 volumes sparked my interest. So much so, that I followed the link to the web site, got sorted into Gryffindor House, moseyed on over to Olivander’s...

Kathryn's newest addition

By the gods, Kathryn! This is truly an outstanding depiction of the opening scene from “Husked Grain”. When you first posted the sketches of the Shiprender, I was almost completely baffled by the position, scientific explanation and designation. However, I never lost sight of the destructive purpose...

Bioart, et al

Well, I followed the links you suggested and for a non-biologist, this review was an eye-opener. I will not go into the scientific details because I will sound like an ignorant boob. However, the concept of Bioart using DNA technology, tissue engineering and other odd gizmos is an education for the ...
