Elenabot AWESOME list. Probably my favourite of yours. I am sure to gorge on a lot of these goodies you've stockpiled here as the years run by. Thanks for taking the time to put it together.


message 2: by Traveller (new)

Traveller I concur that this is the best list ever!


message 3: by Leajk (new)

Leajk Thank you both! (although I suspect the first comment is directed at someone else? doesn't matter, i like this list so glad it getting some votes.)


message 4: by Aubrey (new)

Aubrey Hey Leajk! Would you mind I expanded the tags a bit to reflect more accurately the different number of fields represented? For example, physiology, anthropology, neurology, radiochemistry...just in case some GR soul actually searches for them. We wouldn't want to miss an opportunity to expose them to the women of the sciences.

Elenabot Oops, thought this was one of Aubrey's lists since she invited me. Anyhow, awesome list!

Absolutely, sounds like a great idea!

No problems, it has happened before ;) Aubrey is simply a lot better at inviting people to lists than I am.
