Rock Flipping Day update

It's confirmed; this year, our host for the International Rock Flipping Day (#rockflip) will be Heather Mingo, on her blog, At the Edge of the Ordinary.

Heather is another of my favourite BC bloggers. She describes herself as,
... a writer, blogger, and amateur naturalist living in a small town in the Canadian province of British Columbia (one of the most beautiful places in the world) with 3 cats, 700+ books, and 40+ house plants. ... a geek about plants, fungi, insects, ecosystems, and all that, and I even have a degree in natural resource science to prove it.
... and her blog:
The edge of the ordinary is a place where you can remember your interdependence with the rest of nature, rediscover your inherent creativity, and simply be.  The edge of the ordinary is not in the wilderness or far from home.  It is here, all around you: in the sky, in the air, in the vacant lots, in the cracks in the sidewalk, in the small details that most people ignore.  At the edge of the ordinary you will discover a world of depth and meaning and everyday wonder.  A world peopled by plants and animals and fungi and slime moulds and mountains and rivers and stars and atoms and galaxies.  A world in which to be human is to be both very small and also very large.

A perfect fit for all us Rock Flippers!

So the weekend of September 13/14, then, go out and flip your rocks, record your findings, and send your links to Heather by email or by filling out her contact form. I will be monitoring the Flickr group and passing those links on to her, as well. Any other links that arrive here, I will simply forward.

If your comment is on a post older than a week, it will be held for moderation. Sorry about that, but spammers seem to love old posts!

Also, I have word verification on, because I found out that not only do I get spam without it, but it gets passed on to anyone commenting in that thread. Not cool!
