  1. Hi Kimberly, I read your comment at independentsciencenews and afterwards looked up your blog just so I can celebrate with you. Wooo-hooo! I am as excited as you about this! When I read it I said to my husband, "This is it, the beginning of the end for this evil empire." He disagreed as usual but I don't care! I think this is HUGE. Anyway, just wanted to share with someone who feels the same way... Best to you...
    P.S. My 5 year old son & husband have Asperger's.
    If you want to stay in touch I have a FB page called Learning About Radioactive Fallout. Another fun-filled topic. :D
