mice heart soil; RPS closing reception

today on boing boing, Mark Frauenfelder links to a CDC paper on geophagy I have found useful in my research, as well as a new paper connecting the incorporation of soil with happiness, at least in lab mice.

Interesting interspecies possibilities here!

In other news, First Friday at RPS was fantastic, hundreds of people, but we hope folks we actually know will be able to come back on Friday the 24th (next Friday?!?) for our closing reception. In the works are: a tasting of Starvation Seeds recipes, singing and dancing, and the debut of Rupa's sound installation. Please come! The event has a facebook page if that helps in any way.
