The internet, and social media specifically, is a virtual ever-changing minefield of people vying for your money. Earlier this week I saw what has got to be the most ridiculous ad I have ever seen and decided to spend the rest of the week gathering shots of the different storefronts that have me on their algorithm.

Actually it was the reply to a tweet. The one below in fact. Suddenly, going through twitter in the morning before getting out of bed changed the trajectory of the entire summer and, in all honesty, may have helped my reconnect with a very long forgotten piece of myself.

I am lucky enough to work beyond my home department and as a result come in contact with a seemingly limitless procession of people, from all walks of life. Continue reading Well I never did.
Stepping out into the well tested waters of crowd funding for science. It’s at least well tested for others, I have never done it. But, as part of the indiegogo project, I wanted to attach it to this blog as well as the Paleo Porch facebook page. Continue reading Have Bones Will Travel
I have touched more on family here than I think I intended. But, while that train is rolling, let’s just ride for a while. There is something interesting when you start looking at your family tree. Continue reading A Regular Family Business Part Deux
Here is something that I have shared with close friends. It is so much fun that it should go out on the record. I have traced as much of my family tree back as I can find at this point. Writing and coursework have gotten in between me and finishing. Continue reading A Regular Family Business
