During the work day I'll pull out my binders and folders full of reference data, but at the end of the day i put everything away. I do it out of habit... for the 1st 20 or so years of my career i worked in environments with classified data and kept - "a clean desk policy" at the end of the day! The rock is a piece of fossilized beach - (Intricate layers of unique sand deposits) fossilized into sand stone. I recently found it in river bed south of Hollister Ca. in the narrow rift zone between the San Andreas and Calaveras faults. My son an I go back there every few years to see what fossils are un-earthed by the river that cuts through this area. The rocks we are looking through are about 50 million years old. We have found fossilized clams, sand dollars, huge barnacle clusters and various other mollusk shells. The trees on my desk are white oaks just like the ones seen in Yosemite Valley. ( Every year I collect and germinate some acorns and keep the trees small - (bonsai)). They really begin to look like real trees after about 5 years - even the leaves scale themselves down to 1/4 the size of leaves from a grown tree. I keep their heights down to the 1.5 to 2 foot tall.
