Scientists Say Life On Earth Started In Mars
"Prof Benner said the element molybdenum was thought to be a catalyst that helped organic molecules develop into the first living things."
Molybdenum? Boy, was I ahead of the curve or what? During the early part of our relationship, Mr. Cube was looking at my books, and he spotted one entitled, "Molybdenum," and he asked me, "You have a book about molybdenum?... and he married me anyway :-)

Linda Ronstadt: Parkinsons Disease Has Left Me Unable To Sing
I'd rather remember Linda Ronstadt like this when she was singing with her beautiful voice.
Her politics were dreadful, but you don't have to like the artist to appreciate the art.

Rizzoli And Isles Star Lee Thompson Young Dead At 29
Knew him only as Detective Frost on Rizzoli and Isles... what a shame that someone so young took his life.
What makes someone so young do that?
It's so sad.

For this Cat Blog Friday...
... a Mother Teresa cat.
Back story: On Tuesday, my youngest daughter had her wisdom teeth extracted. She was instructed to take a Valium one hour before the procedure, which she did. A bit later, my eldest daughter called me over to her sister's room and told me that she was acting "loopy". She was dressing our male cat in a scarf and calling him Mother Teresa.
Better living through chemistry, eh?
Happy Friday everybody!

Dogs Yawn In Response To Owners' Yawns
[The BLOG note: The above pic is one of our beloved German Shepherd, Dax , who wasn't really yawning at the time, but any excuse to see her again was a good enough excuse for me to use her photo for this post.]
