Happy birthday to correspondguy and willshetterly!
Hello to new reader atricilla!

William Henry Harrison died in 1841, just a month after he'd been inaugurated as U.S. president. When a messenger went to Vice-President John Tyler to inform him he had ascended to the highest office in the land, Tyler was down on his knees playing a game of marbles. I'm guessing there'll be a similar scenario in your immediate future, Pisces. Big magic may come to visit you while you're in a lowly position. Or maybe an imposing invitation will arrive while you're in a humble situation.

Experts expect an announcement within three to 10 years from someone in the now little-known field of "wet artificial life."... That first cell of synthetic life — made from the basic chemicals in DNA — may not seem like much to non-scientists. For one thing, you'll have to look in a microscope to see it. "Creating protocells has the potential to shed new light on our place in the universe," Bedau said. "This will remove one of the few fundamental mysteries about creation in the universe and our role." And several scientists believe man-made life forms will one day offer the potential for solving a variety of problems, from fighting diseases to locking up greenhouse gases to eating toxic waste.
...I read too much dystopian SF to view this as a 100% good idea...
