who passed away on this day way way back in 1844, you know before we had iPhones or debt ceiling squabbles.
Any of us that do protein know what a Dalton is and today is the day for us and anyone else who uses atomic mass to pay homage to the deceased English chemist and physicist. Dalton was also an accomplished meteorologist and even did a little work on colour blindness. But a big knock on the Brit was that he was not such so meticulous at measurements and played a little fast and loose, but otherwise he was a decent bloke.
Thanks J-Dog! I'm going to pour out some marker ladder for my homie and celebrate with a little Zeppelin..
You gotta love the old Gospel song that was popularized by Blind Willie Johnson and masterfully played by Zep. Page playing in the open A-chord slide guitar, JPJ rocking a fretless base, and John Bonham's rapid machine gun firing of the drums, and plant ain't so bad either.
