Mid-Winter Harvest

This is my harvest for mid winter's dinner.

Mid-Winter Weekend

This is our mid winter dinner invitation. For those of you who aren't familiar with the phrase "mid-winter", well, that's exactly what it is. It's the middle of our winter, for those of us lucky enough to leave early we only have 9 more weeks left, for those leaving in October, do the math. Just thought i'd share our mid winter greetings along with you all.

These are a few images from our science lab. Our lab is named Crary lab, the first picture explains about the explorer that the lab is dedicated to. Next is a penguin and it's baby inside a glass enclosure. The next picture is a weather screen showing wind, temperature and other weather activities that are occuring in the area. Next is a picture of an "Phonolite Bomb from Mt. Erebus". Mt. Erebus is the only active volcano in antarctica. This rock fragment was part of a 2m diameter bomb ejected from the volcano during a set of explosive eruptions in oct-nov 1984. The bomb contains visible anorthoclase feldspar phenocrysts (Erebus Crystals). The final picture is a case which holds old diving equipment that were used by many of the first divers here in antarctica.
