Good Monday morning to all my readers, especially to the 406 who read the blog via Feedburner. Did you know, that if each and everyone of you donated a mere $10 to our DonorsChoose drive, we’d have raised a total of $5,353 and will have met our challenge goals? That’s less than three cents a day spread over a year, and overall ten dollars well spent.
You know what to do …
And if you donate (or have done so), please remember to forward your e-mail receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org to take part in our prize drawing.
And now, your Today in Science.
