Happy Birthday to Robert Bunsen!

Where would we be without this gentleman?

Teacher, inventor, pioneer in photochemistry, discovered two elements (caesium and rubidium), investigator of emission spectra and finally an early worker in the field of organoarsenic chemistry.

Obviously, for someone who lived in the 1800s, I could never have met him, but I feel I would have enjoyed meeting him, and getting to take a class under him would have been a major bonus.

Robert Bunsen, thank you for making the world a better place for your having been here.

Plugging a new book by a great author!

Today is the street date for Seanan McGuires newest book in her October Daye series, Late Eclipses. The series is great, the books are a fun read and I strongly suggest that everyone in the world needs to go out and buy this book today.

(Full disclosure, I am a email pal with Seanan McGuire, and also enjoy her music and art, so I just might be a bit biased)
