07:56 – Despite all the problems with Barbara’s mom over the weekend, we managed to get another batch of forensic science kits built. Barring a bulk order, we should have enough of those in stock to last for a month or more.
I got email yesterday from one of our favorite authors, Alan Bradley. The latest in his delightful Flavia de Luce mystery series, The Dead in Their Vaulted Arches, releases Tuesday. He’s sending me a signed copy as a thank you for the small technical assistance I’ve provided from time to time. Flavia is an 11-year-old amateur chemist in the early 1950’s. I was an 11-year-old amateur chemist in the early 1960’s, so I can identify with Flavia. If you enjoy cozies, read this series. You’ll love it.
