Ruby was (fairly) well behaved while we all enjoyed a fantastic brunch. There was a lot of discussion about actinides, natural organic matter, and colloids (topics that make most non-scientists' eyes glaze over), but Ruby took it all in stride. Here is a photo of her in a very nice "down stay," worthy of a Nobel Prize:
Of great interest to Ruby during the course of our science brunch was the Law of Gravity. Wanting to make a contribution, she re-enacted a scene from the past, her tribute to Sir Isaac Newton and his great discovery:
This led Ruby to happen upon her own great discovery, also involving a fallen apple:
Thanks Jim, for a wonderful brunch. Ruby not only enjoyed learning about field-flow fractionation, and participating in a heated discussion about hematite colloids, she also found the plums in the back of your garden most intriguing!
