See the Molecule

This is very cool - I spent years learning about chemistry. The thing was, it was all lines and drawings on paper. Other than mixing stuff in test tubes - you could never really see chemical structures...but now you can!

Dog Days of Summer

I didn't know this, did you?

"The Dog Days of summer, or caniculae dies, was the term used by ancient Romans to refer to the hottest days of the year falling between early July and late August, presaged by the rising of the Dog Star, Sirius, just before the sun."

...sounds like the dogs in Rome are getting a break from the heat now though...check it out here

Mom's Apple Pies

Increasingly when I walk into pretty much any establishment I have a habit of asking myself

1) Is this the sort of place that could use e-marketing (emails, Facebook, Twitter, etc)

2) I wonder if they are

Earlier today I dropped by Mom's Apple Pies in Leesburg, VA - they make awesome pies. As I stood there debating which pie I needed to have - I asked myself those two questions.

It occurred to me that a little pie shop could DEFINITELY use e-marketing really effectively. And then I saw the little sign "Follow Us on Twitter" - it wasn't a huge sign - but it was there.

I thought to myself, "I'll have to check them out"

Sure enough - they're on Twitter: @MomsPies - not bad! And it looks like they're actually Twittering. Good for them!

Now they need an email newsletter/sign-up on their website!
