What I loved about this was the Latin name for the Red Sea. "Erythro" means red, and we see it in the lab in the word erythrocyte, meaning red blood cell.
I thought that was kind of cool and interesting, but maybe that's just me.
It was a lot of fun to join in the "anniversary chat" this afternoon and evening! I popped in for a while at 3 PM, and both Ken and I were in there for a while at 6 PM. It was fun to chat with a couple of people we've already encountered in J-Land, and to meet a couple of new friends.
J-Land is a special place, and I suppose there are some who don't "get it." I know I appreciate each and every friendship and friendly encounter I've experienced here. Happy Birthday, J-Land!
And congratulations to the US basketball team for getting the gold! Woo-hoo! Spain played them very well, and it was not an easy win by any means. I remember reading the Time article in which Lebron James said that anything less than a gold was a failure. What a great run, and what fun to see the "Redeem Team" win the gold. And Lebron got his gold. Cool.
