Good to hear from you, Mark. The " fishite" as you call them are formed by freezing, thawing and refreezing on the metal table on our deck.

I am sorry to read about your problems with car and plane, but glad that you and Gwen arrived safely home. I wish we had a bit of that cold weather. Looking forward to the rest of your report.

For the past four years the the Pueblo Gem and Mineral Show has been host to a series of lectures at the Arizona Riverpark Inn. This year was the Fifth Annual Tucson Mineral Lecture Series. Mr. John S. White started the evening with "Reminiscences of a Very Old Former Curator." Bob Jones was next with his talk on "Tucson: How It All Began." Dr. Marco Campos-Venuti was the final speaker for the evening and gave a fabulous lecture based on his book, " Genesis and Classification of Agates and Jaspers: A New Theory." The following evening Dr. Peter Megaw spoke on "An Explorer's Mineralogical Adventures in Famous Mexican Localities," and Federico Barlocher presented "Namak Mandi Peshawar Pakistan: The Mysteries and Secrets of The Legendary Gem Crystal Market Never Seen by the Public Before."

Mineral Lectures at the Riverpark Inn

I only posted three pictures this afternoon because my internet service has been so slow that it has been taking me approximately 25 minutes per picture to upload.
