Rocks, rocks and more rocks

As someone who has always liked rocks, whether their for decoration in the house or a tool to impart educational wisdom, I thought that these two articles seemed particularily appropriate to be put together.

The first one is a great article over at Science Daily entitled “A Rock is a Clock: Physicist Uses Matter to Tell Time“. I enjoyed this one as it reminded me of one of my daughters early Science Fair Projects (Rocks of Northern Minnesota). Rocks are also the topic of my partially written book, the one that my kids remind me of as they continue to work on theirs.

The other article is entitled “Weathering” by Michael Pidwirny over at The Encyclopedia of Earth. Just an all around great read.

Kicking it down the road!
