Merry Christmas, folks!

    You might like the 10 Days of Newton article in the NYT http://judson.blogs.nytimes.co.....of-newton/

    On the tenth day of Newton,
    My true love gave to me,
    Ten drops of genius,
    Nine silver co-oins,
    Eight circling planets,
    Seven shades of li-ight,
    Six counterfeiters,
    Four telescopes,
    Three Laws of Motion,
    Two awful feuds,
    And the discovery of gravity!
