Happy birthday, Albert Einstein, and Happy Pi Day to all!
Last week I wrote that my husband’s cardiac procedure was scheduled for this week. Thank you for all your well wishes. But procedure has been delayed until Monday. Please keep us in your prayers and thoughts.
See ya on the Net,

American Institute of Physics: Einstein: Image and Impact
The American Institute of Physics site (my pick of the day) explores Einstein’s life through historical accounts, photographs and sound clips. The Brief Version (recommended for elementary students and anyone not wanting to read all one hundred pages of the Main Exhibit) can be traversed by following the Next Page link at the very bottom of each page. Clicking on any other links for more detail will take you into the Main Exhibit. To return to your tour through the Brief Version, use your browser back button, or start again at the home page.

That’s relativity.”
E = mc2 Explained
“Albert Einstein published his Special Theory of Relativity in 1905 and, in doing so, demonstrated that mass and energy are actually the same thing, with one a tightly compressed manifestation of the other. This mass-energy equivalence has had a major impact on all our lives, although how and why isn’t always obvious.” Take a walk through Einstein’s famous formula.
