Yes, agreed. I had a horrible chemistry teacher in high school--put me off chemistry until well into my adulthood, when for reasons that I can't recall now, I decided to take a chemistry class at a community college. I was fascinated by it.

Thanks for the suggestion! I signed up yesterday, read the guidelines, and then proofed a couple of beginner pages.

Don, Thanks for info. Originally I did mean contributing, but the distributed proofreading is more my speed for now. I hope I'll be back to take up your offer of advice before too long.
