Friday July 9, 2004. I donated stuff to Steeple People Thrift Store. Yes, I did buy also -- but less than what I donated.

To the HealthPartners Uptown pharmacy, to pick up ADD pills.

I began thinking about distinctive wedding rings for different types of marriages. I decided on rings which would display the number of people in the marriage. Non-restrictive marriages would also have plus signs.

Global team of physicists upends standard model with discovery of neutrino oscillation, mass
A team of nearly 100 physicists from around the world have achieved results verifying that the elementary particle known as the neutrino exhibits a distinctive pattern of oscillation. This discovery shows that it is likely that the Standard Model of particle physics is incomplete. The findings provide the needed confirmation to their previous discovery of neutrino oscillation and give the most precise measurement yet of neutrino mass.
