We are also lucky enough to have, not too far away, some of the richest gold mines in the country and the mine dumps produce some fantastic specimens. My house is full of rocks.

If you ever need a custom cut gemstone for that special someone, hit me up. I cut everything except diamonds.

I'm jealous. I would love to go on a dinosaur dig.

The only interesting rocks I've found around here are some large pieces of fossilized wood. One piece is so heavy that it takes two people to pick it up.

There's an area just about 15 minutes away alongside a river that you can find lots of little fossils. The occasional megalodon tooth too I've heard. But those finds are pretty rare.

Have you ever stopped in at the chatroom over at mindat? There are some old miners that hang out over there. Good place to discuss rocks and minerals. One member, who sadly passed away not too long ago, even wrote a book about his adventures collecting over the years "The Mineral Gods Must Be Laughing".

I'm going to have to check that out. Mindat is a great site.

So you're telling the kids that you're having the steps replaced, but you're actually having the steps removed. Wink Shades
"Well, evolution is a theory. It is also a fact. And facts and theories are different things, not rungs in a hierarchy of increasing certainty. Facts are the world's data. Theories are structures of ideas that explain and interpret facts. Facts don't go away when scientists debate rival theories to explain them. Einstein's theory of gravitation replaced Newton's in this century, but apples didn't suspend themselves in midair, pending the outcome. And humans evolved from ape- like ancestors whether they did so by Darwin's proposed mechanism or by some other yet to be discovered."

It's Scottish slang.

braw
(br·aww) Dialect, chiefly Scot -adj.
1. fine, pleasant, esp. weather (“It’s a braw day the day” or “It’s a braw, bricht, moonlicht nicht the nicht“).
2. attractive, pretty (often in “You’re really braw, hen. Fancy a Ruby Murray?“).
