Math Is For Wieners

I'm kind of a trivia junkie. One of my goals is to go on Jeopardy and try to win some cash with the bits I've accumulated in my head over the years. That's why in the right column of my blog I have a "what happened in history on this date" gadget--to perpetuate my obsession or at least have my daily "huh, interesting" moment. Here's something to gobble on...

Today is the birthday of Norbert Wiener. Besides having one of the best names ever, he was an applied mathematician who founded cybernetics--a field that studies how anything (machine or man) processes information. He was a ground-breaking advocate of using technology like robotics, computer control, and automation to improve our lives. Working with a team at MIT, his research made pioneering contributions to computer science and artificial intelligence. (Sounds like the background story for Terminator 4: Rise of the Wiener)

Today is also the anniversary of the day King Tut's tomb was opened and doomed all those involved. It was worth it, though. I plan on seeing a bunch of his loot at the Dallas Museum of Art while it's in town. Since I haven't made it to Egypt yet, I figure this is the next best thing. OH-WAY-OH!

RRRRRRRRRRRRings...........

I've continued to tweak the e-maille.com website this weekend. For each item, I've added a section to give some insight on the process that went into making things. Also, the customization options have been improved for more flexibility.

I also added 2 new rings --
Swirl Etched Stackable Ring



Unique enough to stand on its own, but dainty enough to stack a few, you'll find these rings complement any style. A fine etched line swirls around the ring for sparkle and interest. Sold individually.
