I have green quartz in the shape of KY inn the top tier of the front garden and 2 big chunks of blue marble the size of my head. I had a lot of fun with the name of the place "Dick's Rock Shop"...

That 1'x1'x1' rose quartz? Wow.
Heeheehee. Whenever we take some sort of trip I always drag home a bunch of "rocks "-- my better half has grown accustomed to my rock hoarding. Lol. When my sis left the Deep South I scavenged the big rocks from her back yard, piling them in the trunk of my rental car. 50 miles from home I had to call the roll back truck to take me home. I had the truck driver stop by my house (midnight), lower the car so I could unload the rocks from the trunk then take the rental car on to the rental office. I never told the rental office I had hauled a load of rocks in their rental car. Lol

Remembering in elementary, when the teacher gave us the tray if rocks to learn. I loved the smooth, cold stones. Rosy Quartz was my favorite.
Yeah, by that mountain parkway. My daughter lived in MT Sterling for a few years. Kind of midpoint for them as they headed opposite directions every morning.
The geology classes had to identify different rocks etc and taste was an important identifying factor. Wouldn't mind tasting rocks but I wouldn't want one that everyone else licked ... Yuck!!

LOL. Rocks are great! They don't require watering or mowing. I use them where ever I can in my landscaping.

Moss covered rocks look nice. Gives a vintage feel along with cascading Ivy near a quiet stream.

We all need to stock up - water, batteries, make sure you have a heating source, food. If the New Madrid goes, transportation across the Mississippi could be affected. Stay safe, be prepared for the worst, hope for the best, and pray.
This is correct

It WILL be a major disaster. Heck, first one so bad it created Reelfoot Lake and actually felt as far away as Philadelphia!
Keep praying

I have a good sized dinosaur egg, dug it out of a footer over thirty years ago. I have a small meteor fragment too, found it in a creek-bed after a flash flood about twenty years ago. Neither are confirmed by anything other than tests I could do myself. The meteor fragment is very magnetic and passes all the other tests. The egg is a dead ringer for an Oviraptor egg. I have no idea what kind roamed these parts, but one layer drooped an egg at one point. AW may have tripped over the thing while it was still fresh, got mad and kicked it over into that creek. hehehe
