Some of you, my readers, have sent money to me via Paypal or Amazon. I just wanted to tell you that even though most of these funds have been dedicated to keeping my birds and me housed and fed and me medicated, I did spend a little of it on a gift that I know all of you would want to have given me; a year’s subscription to NewScientist and ScienceNews magazines.
When I was gainfully employed, I had subscriptions to both of these magazines and not a week has gone by that I haven’t missed reading them since my subscriptions ran out a couple years ago. But thanks to you, my first issue of NewScientist arrived today and I am excited to read it on the subway, or while I wait for the pharmacist to refill my prescriptions, or one of a hundred other annoying things I have to wait in line for. So, many thanks to all of you for such a great, fabulous, wonderful gift that will last me for a whole year! And it arrived on my birdthday week, too.
