Due to popular disgust with the spider photo, here is a file photo from the Grand Canyon. This is interesting orange stuff growing on the rocks at the observation platforms. The tour guide had an interesting name for it, which is long forgotten now. Anyway, I think it's lichen or perhaps moss or something.

So Mary gave me this Mushroom Adventure kit for Christmas. Using it, one can grow mushrooms in one's own home! Tasty fungus for the eating. I opened the box, took out the instructions and all the icky bits, and set to work. Also pictured in background: Seagram's gin industrial sized bottle: 'it's the smoothest.'
