Ramblings about what I encounter within the realm of the geosciences, as well as the occasional rant about nonsense.

Getting Back in the Swing of Blogging

It has been quiet around this corner of the ol' intertoobz for a couple of weeks. What can I say, I've been busy. During this time I've also inexplicably managed to get out and about a bit. My family had a quick reunion over on Oahu, Maui, and Hawaii (I will post a series of pictures when I get the chance), I also attended a friend's wedding in Portland, OR (Powell's is AMAZING, GSA attendees should plan a visit), and helped my mom with her recovery from surgery (bone spurs on the 1st and 2nd cervical vertebrae, and also the reason we had a family reunion in HI before the surgery).

Right now, I am waiting to get access to a large scanner that can scan in several figures that are 3.5 m long. So I figured I would peruse the blogosphere. This post on early geology, and how it influenced Charles Darwin, caught my attention over at Pharyngula. It skips over Steno, but it is a decent summary just the same.

I'm sure if you follow my humble blog you probably are already familiar with Iconic Science Blog Pharyngula. So why the cross-post you may ask. Well, it is purely for selfish reasons. I wanted to place the link somewhere that I wouldn't lose it. The options were to either email it to myself or post it on ITV. Since my mail inbox is becoming increasingly difficult to sift through, ITV wins out. Enjoy (if you haven't already)!
