    No explanation needed. And yes, all on this group share a love of thinking. As I like to say, I'm GREAT at thinking. DOING?  Well, that's another matter entirely!  Recently, I've been searching for the back-story of errors in math tables and have learned a tremendous amount from wonderful people on the web, this group and my own searches. That's how I first found this wonderful celnav group.  It's been a great adventure, and I've tried to make it  entertaining enough for 'civilians' and do some 'outreach'.  I have many amusing stories re: this endeavor, which I would love to share, but they would be so far in the OT category as to be classified as clutter.  Remember, this is the 400th ann. of Napier.  Afford him appropriate homage, as I am sure you are wont to do.
