January 7th Old Rock Day

We aren’t talking about Kiss, The Doors and The Rolling Stones here… well, maybe the Rolling Stones. We are talking about fossils, those rocks so old no one on earth remembers the creatures that made them. Some people have even become fossils, not that we look for them much. (And no, it’s not your grandma or grandpa.) Anyway, today we celebrate old rocks in our lives. (So I guess that means you can listen to the Rolling Stones after all!) It’s funny, as we get older the rocks seem to get younger to us!

How to celebrate – See if you can find a real “gem” in those rocks you look for. Remember a lump of coal is basically an old rock. Join a fossil hunting group.
