An interactive Table no less.


Table of Elements on the Web

Here is a site that has history and news of the Table of Elements.

Webelements: The Periodic Table on the Web

New Book

Well its time to start on a new book. We agreed on Monday that the next book would be scientific but in a readable fashion. We whittled down from 3 books to the one we picked:
"The Disappearing Spoon: and Other True Tales of Madness, Love, and the History of the World from the Periodic Table of the Elements" by Sam Kean.

Just in case you are interested the others we looked at were:

The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks

Here's Looking at Euclid: A Surprising Excursion Through the Astonishing World of Math

We will be having the next meeting on September 19th at the same bat time (7pm). Have fun reading and I look forward to talking with you about it.

Another Book by Donald Miller

I also read "Searching for God Knows What". This was fantastic to read especially if you would like to think about why we do certain things and how they fit into what Jesus really said. Powerful ties to relationship while distancing from "right" and "wrong" answers. Definitely challenges you to think about what following Jesus really means and if living for Jesus is exactly the point when we could live with Jesus. Or is there a destination or instead a person that is the goal, Jesus? I would highly recommend it as a good read.

Looking for God Knows What

I am reading another book by Donald Miller and I think I am even more impressed by this one.
