Construction site ahead

Reactions:  
Now that I began working and started my PhD I am also pondering to re-work my blog. A couple of people know anyways who I am and I would like to return to my roots and blog more personally of what I do. So it might look a bit chaotic here occasionally in terms of layout and design in the next couple of months (work and PhD eat my time). Perhaps I move to my university website. Or not. Though I will keep making posts also - if my sanity is not affected by all the other things that I should be doing (microscopes, XRD training, reading, writing grants proposals, classes and whatnot). There actually is at least one night post in my head about last fridays field trip to some fantastic open pits and industrial minerals (kaolinite, quartz, feldspar, clays). If time is short I might just post photos...

Keep up the good work , thank you for taking the time to share this with people . I found your site on google images looking for " yellow Boy " ( naturally occurring humic acid ) . I am a practicing Plant Scientist , and Agricultural Engineer, with emphasis on Agronomy , and get into long conversations with Local Gardeners ,and farmers about what " real humus " is. This was a pleasant distraction for me , and relevant to my surroundings here in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Thank you again

keep up the good work I enjoyed this. I found you through Google Images looking for "Yellow Boy" (naturally occurring humic acid). I harvest this stuff from local creek beds here in the Foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains to feed my plants. I am a Plant Scientist , and Agricultural Engineer farming at 3700 ft Elevation and am addicted to information retrieval of all things related to Physical Technology ( real technology , not that silly consumer electronic smoke and mirror stuff ) Thank you for the Pleasant deviation from my mission .
