    A little note to inform you that an exhibit regarding soil science has opened at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History in Washington DC. The exhibit is called ‘Dig It! The Secrets of The Soil’. It will be running through to January, 2010 and will be following a national tour yet to be scheduled.

    I have been honored to have some of my microscopy work used in the creation of this exhibit. Anyone out DC way check it out. For information http://forces.si.edu/soils

    I guess that is answers the question right there. Now if we can just get the word out to everyone about this test. They are going to write an "article" I guess about this? I would love to be able to have something with pictures that I could post on my website and possibly put a link to in my newsletters I plan on incorporating into my business soon.

Go Forth And (Hopefully) Multiply (Exponentially, My Hope) C'ya on the Green Field of Bio-Diversity (that should be a basic requirement of early learning) K
