fourth photo of the fourth folder

Greetingarts.typepad.com issued a challenge to blog and describe the fourth photo of the fourth folder on my computer. While she had a cute photo of her little girl (my niece), I had a very different photo!

This is a block of serpentine rock which is also a good example of “slickenslides” which is the shiny, “scratched” surface which is created by geologic forces. When two rock faces are pushed against each other, the pressure alters the minerals slightly.

Fine print: photo was taken in April 2008 from McLaren Park in San Francisco. It was a block which had been moved and placed around the pond so it was not in place. (As a geologist, I feel obligated to state that!)

made moocards and stickers today!

I re-signed up for Flickr today and in doing so, got an offer for 10 free moo-cards. I’ve been coveting them for some time because both my SO and sister got some and I’ve been just drooling over them.

In the process of making ten for free (because I don’t know what I’d do with 100 … yet), I found out you can make sticker books too! I couldn’t help it and ordered a book of 90 stickers for $10US. Can’t wait to get them!

If you want to see what I’m referring to, here’s the link www.moo.com
