Ok Scott,
Your instructions were good --- I now have Spyder working with scipy 0.10.1. 
However, when I ran the scipy.test(), I received the following final outputs:

  Ran 5103 tests in in 47.160s

  OK (KNOWNFAIL=13, SKIP=24)

Is the the expected results for a working scipy 0.10.1?

Thanks very much for your help Scott,
Have a good day!
