The Ediger family has a new pet!

I’d like every one to welcome…

Well Digging

Bruce Ediger

When I was maybe 11, some folks bought the hillside north of my parents’ house. The head of this new household, named Monte, had a 1940s bulldozer. He carved out the hillside to create a flat zone, maybe half an acre, for their house.

As part of putting in a dwelling, Monte and some friends and/or relatives dug a well in that flat zone.

How I learned about Bob Marley

Bruce Ediger

I grew up in Kirksville, Missouri, the largest town within an 88 mile radius. Had to go to Hannibal, or Quincy or Columbia to get to a larger town.

But I’ve also had a life-long love of Bob Marley’s reggae music.

Ordovician Extinction

Bruce Ediger

The End Ordovician Extinction seems weird to paleontologists. There’s a lot of agreement on the earth cooling at the end of the Ordovician, right up to evidence of major glaciation and a harsh ice age, but there are serious suggestions that will boggle your mind.

Dakosaurus reconstruction

Thalattosuchians are an under-rated clade of mesozoic animals. Part of Pseudosuchia, the crocodile-like archosaurs, they were completely adapted to a marine lifestyle.
