Oh man, thanks for that. It was most excellent! Speaking of watching something that'll brighten up a Crotchety Astronomers day, did you see the video where she solves the Hubble Paradox showing that the expansion rate is closer to 50 km/ sec/ Megaparsec.

Talk about a toe curling moment. I had to have a cigarette after that one, and I don't even smoke!! grin

P.S. Did you happen to catch the color of Lexy's eyes? Wow, talk about an Azure b..... No, wait I take that back, they were more of a Cobalt Blue. 8)
