Christmas and family have taken up my time, and no, I didn’t plan ahead for articles on the season. Regular posting will resume soon. In the meantime, a few tidbits I’ve come across.

First, a couple recaps of “Things I Won’t Work With” and a few entries I hadn’t posted before:

What This here Compound Needs is Some Hydrogen Peroxide.

Peroxide Peroxides.





Dioxygen diflouride.

Sand Won’t Save You.

On a more holiday note, some Christmas thoughts courtesy of the Didact. And some thoughts on advertisements of old. And some hot drumming, in more than one sense of the word.

Finally, a few thoughts on the importance of having a study, as a separate space, even if you live alone.
