Hello, I am bluepanishlady and I joined this forum yesterday. I quite enjoy reading all the posts and troubling through some of the questions and problems posed. It is really cool that so many different topics are discussed here. It is also heartwarming to see so many young people interested and involved in the sciences. I am an older lady myself who has never lost interest in the sciences. As a kid I was a member of the school science club and now grownup I frequently use my garden as a teaching tool for kids walking by who take an interest in the flowers and vegetables and how things grow and are interrelated in nature. I read and am basically interested or curious about almost everything. (I have never suffered from boredom) Science and physics give structure to my understanding of how things work and interact. I am very happy to have discovered this physics forum.
