is this thing alive? I guess it has been a while. Though two months isn't that horrible and with all of these new internet technologies people can still listen in.

Last weekend while in DC at the Museum of Natural History I saw this nice sized piece of copper


Reminded me of the huge piece that is in the Quincy mine. Though this one is also in the room with the Hope diamond.

Anyway a long way to say that it reminded me that I will be up in the UP from August 2nd to the 5th. Let me know if you will be in the area and we can get together.
