Oh, and by the way…

…Happy 2nd blogoversary to me!  I just now realized it, so happily you’ll be spared the tedious introspection.

Today also marks 150 years since the publication of Charles Darwin’s On the Origin of Species.  Sharing the day with my hero (see sidebar quote)—yea!

    Sir Ted
    Once again I’m expressing envy of your writings, wanderings, exploits and the added citations. Although the debate continues regarding Evolution vs. a Higher Power; we can get educated and truly believe what we want in this country without oppression! I truly appreciate Darwin, your science, blogs and creative writing abilities! Greetings from Pullman, Wa. and do have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family!

    • Hi Rod. Thank you so much for the nice comments. Despite being an ardent evolutionist, I don’t proselytize on the evolution/creation issue too much. I figure it’s a waste of time – anybody who reads my blog already gets it, and if they don’t then they’re already ignoring far more convincing evidence than what I can articulate. Anyway, thanks for your interest and interactions!

    Congratulations, Ted! Here’s hoping for many more to come… (I say selfishly since I learn a great deal from you–and enjoy the eye candy!)
