    Hiya, Phil!

    Had a Guiness last night while gaming and thought of you!

    These are some interesting worms. They remindme of the pogonophorans that hang out near hydrothermal vents, and their endosymbiotic bacteria are reminiscient of this.

    Yup, Monterey rules!

    what thrilling lives they must lead.
    "you not talking to me ?" thinks one to his "partner"
    "where's dinner ?"
    "where should I insert my dinner ?" etc etc :D

    Whale fall, now there's an interesting term.

    It brings to mind the one from the Hitchhikers guide.... "...gggground I wonder if it will be friends with me..."
