    WOW! That was awesome Kate.

    First I felt real small, then I felt real big.

    Kinda like real life at times.

    Hi, hub--Bruce is a map addict, and he discovered the google map thing a couple of weeks ago. It's like his version of Monday night football or something . . . totally absorbing.

    It's interesting to think that at the molecular level, it becomes more like outer space as we approach the electron cloud.
