Found on my post-Thanksgiving recovery walk, a water-spattered composition sheet with a hard-to-make-out-scrawl:  "Tell Karen I am Really Happy she works with me. She always has my Back whether asked or not [over a good job?]. Give her a little salt water Taffy and Say Thank You. GO GET SALT WATER TAFFY."

Hooray, scallops

I love it that scallops have 40 to 100 eyes circling their mantle; however, this now means I probably won’t eat them anymore. Recommended for science heads:  Evolution's Witness: How Eyes Evolved (Schwab), out Oct 2011.
