For Suzanne

Sunset Sprig

My dearest Suzanne could use some beautiful things right now. So I shall give her (and also you, dearest readers) some flowers and a sunset from Oregon, 2010, when Lockwood took us round to investigate the glories of Oregon geology for the very first time. I have no idea what this is, but it can …

The Truth About Guys and Gals

Last night was completely fucked up in all the best ways. Well, most of them. And it’s led to semi-deep thoughts. Mind you, I hadn’t had enough sleep. I’d had a shitty day at work, following the shittiest four-day weekend I’ve had in forever, and just that afternoon our call center director had asked me …

Subterranean Homesick Blues, Here I Come!

I just got my package of books from Wayne Ranney.  (Actually, I probably got them a week ago, but I’ve only just now checked the mail.)  You know what this means, don’t you? Pain, that’s what. You see, Wayne’s a wonderful writer, and he’s got all of Arizona’s delicious geology to go play in, and …

One (or Two) For the Road

Silver Fox has a post up about road songs: So one day, I’m in the passenger seat of some other geo’s truck, being driven from place to place through thick trees and over rutted and roily dirt roads somewhere in central Idaho, in search of particularly fascinating outcrops — any outcrops would do, given the …

Sit and Watch the Sunset

It’s Monday.  Moreover, it’s the Monday after a holiday.  I know all you all need a little something beautiful right now, so go over and watch the sunset at Suzanne’s: That’s just the first of many gorgeous images.  Go on.  Go enjoy.  You’ve earned a beauty break.

Stuff Comes from Somewhere

Back before I distracted by the shiny new car and purchasing of same, our own George W. had a post up that really forced some thinking.  And it’s all because he was up at 4 in the morning thinking about bolts: Where’s the nickel (which plates the bolt) mined? What’s the state of mine-safety technology? …
