THE ULTIMATE CHRONOSTRATIGRAPHIC CHART
Ray Troll is a world-renowned Alaska-based artist, specializing in fish and paleontology art. This is from his Pancakes and Geology: Cruisin’ the Fossil Freeway.
I drew this image for the Cruisin’ the Fossil Freeway book and exhibit I did with Dr. Kirk Johnson. … I truly believe that everyone should know the geologic ages of our planet. They should be taught in kindergarten right alongside the ABCs as far as I’m concerned. I’m dead serious about this folks. And hey… they’re surprisingly easy to memorize and having this t-shirt in your wardrobe will make it even easier.

Casablanca aka the Best Goat Ever
Guys! This is my goat this semester! She likes to jump on logs and headbutt other goats and is over all pretty cool.
Monsanto lobbyists have successfully pushed a last minute change into the Continuing Resolution spending bill which was approved by U.S. Congress recently. If not vetoed by President Obama, this will give Monsanto immunity from U.S. government action regarding the safety of any and all new GMO crops and will take away the Judiciary system’s constitutional mandate to review GMO crops to ensure the safety of both consumers and the environment.
Again, this has already been passed by congress so if you are against this, the only way to stop it now is to get President Obama to veto this bill when it reaches his desk.
Food Democracy Now has a petition currently organized to tell President Obama to veto it at fooddemocracynow.org.
Tonight I was feeling motivated to cook, so dinner is sweet potato - black bean burgers and homemade ginger ale. I also have sweet potato fries in the oven right now.
Nature enthusiast and fibre artist Leigh Martin has been hard at work on an awesome project entitled 52 Forms of Fungi for which she is knitting beautiful and impressively realistic pieces of fungi each week. They look particularly wonderful photographed in natural settings.
“It’s no secret that I have an affinity for fungi, and that I am also a slightly obsessed knitter. I’ve decided to challenge myself this year (because after all, what is the New Year for if not for challenges) to take my favorite combo (knitting and fungi) to the next level by knitting 52 different forms of fungi in 2013.”
I just need this on my blog right now.

“A woman can preach. A woman can work. A woman can fight. A woman can build, can rule, can conquer, can destroy just as much as a man can.”
God, I wish I didn’t come back to New Brunswick. I’m siting in my bed and I just have this crippling feeling of loneliness.
