According to the book I am reading, and contrary to my comment in an earlier post that Minnesota is not particularly well known for fossils, there have been quite a few finds from the Quaternary (Pleistocene) era, which is the most recent of geological ages and continues to this day. A lot of mammal remains have been found in the glacial drift. Apparently there were elephants (mastadons) in Minnesota (four kinds). This era began sixty million years ago and during this time, evidence of three glacial ages can be traced, rather than one single glacial age as was first believed. At one point the glaciers scraped the ground down to bare rock and redistributed it in southern Minnesota, resulting in the Canadian Shield all the way north to the arctic. Mention was made of celtic theology in church today. I got my garden planted today. Hoping for rain tonight as the soil was powdery and dry. I am still working on my sonnet. It's one of those no-no subjects. Unless I write that which is shocking and unacceptable, I am not really interested. For me that means ...well, never mind. Hoffs Rock Shop
