The latest Accretionary Wedge, the acclaimed gathering of the Geoblogosphere, is hosted this time by geologist Evelyn Mervine at her “Georneys” and she is asking if you “do see geology in unexpected places?

Here a bit a macabre approach to this question - a gravestone for a geologist - as seen in an old newspaper (published in 1856), the inscription reads:

"He was searching for rocks an entire life

Never to be satisfied

Now he got one big Stone

That will do in the End "
