07:55 – Work on the forensics book continues. I think we’re going to end up having two kits for this book, one kit that includes the special equipment and chemicals to do all of the lab sessions in that book, and a second kit that includes a subset, with the materials for doing only a selected group of the lab sessions.

Speaking of science kits, we shipped two chemistry kits yesterday, which took our inventory down below a half dozen. We’ll assemble another batch of those this weekend.

16:06 – Sad news. Levon Helm has died. Although younger people may not recognize his name, to my generation he was well-known as the drummer of The Band, and the voice of many classic tracks like The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down.
