Scientific man...

"The scientific man does not aim at an immediate result. He does not expect that his advanced ideas will be readily taken up. His work is like that of the planter - for the future. His duty is to lay the foundation for those who are to come, and point the way." -- Nikola Tesla

Updated the blog design

Dear Reader,

The old blog design seemed a bit stale so I went ahead an updated the design and made a few simplifications.  I am pleased with the result.  Hope you are too.  Would love feedback.

Good DX and 73,

Minds develop...
