Took a sick day today because of a mid-day dentist visit for standard cleaning. No news is good news in that regard.

I wasn't going to bother to write a whole journal entry about this, but just now I came across this recent article coincidentally: Lose a tooth? Just grow a new one! say British scientists. Since my teeth are apparently still being ground down, this news promises salvation in a few years.

More money for stem-cell researchers, I say!

Most of the rest of the day went to either reading or watching DVD because we had another 100-degree day:

Finished reading Greek Fire, Poison Arrows, and Scorpion Bombs: Biological and Chemical Warfare in the Ancient World

Started in on Secrets of Saffron: The Vagabond Life of the World's Most Seductive Spice

Viewed some of the special features on the collector's edition of "Master and Commander: The Far Side of the World" -- their combination of full-size, real-life ships, "bigatures," and computer graphics is just amazing. They show several sequences where they fade between these three elements in the same scene, blending from one to another, making it impossible to tell where one begins and the other takes over. Of course that's the whole point. Just stunning.
