I don't post much about our pets, but they do mean a lot to us. If it wasn't for Katerina, I would have no bite and scratchmarks on my hands, for example. So here is my tribute to our cat, and two of the fish.

Geology 101

I spent the whole of yesterday getting an introduction to Geology, from what geologists do, through drilling, sampling, QAQC, geostatistics and many other interesting tidbits. Not much one can learn about a specific subject in a packed day, but it was still good. Gave out lots of business cards, and had to teach the whole class about shallow offshore drilling, as the presenter did not have any experience in the subject field.

So I mentioned sonic, vibrocoring, and of course the mother of all systems, the MACC.

It was an interesting experience paying for the course myself, and I found myself wanting to learn everything there was to learn, and I did. It was a good course, presented by Snowden Perth.
