@C. Michael Hogan: Hi, Michael! Thanks so much for your comments. I've listened to the prairie dog story (I see many ways to use this already); am shocked and saddened by the situation. The painted hunting dog and its amazing BFQ. The first time I even thought about BFQ was when I did some back research on the jaguar in Belize after hearing this amazing true story told by Alan Rabinowitz told at the MOTH in NYC. Challenged by 20 years of struggling with stutter, he becomes the voice for the jaguars' protection. http://themoth.org/posts/episodes/episode-0902 Would love to talk to you sometime about any connections you may have made between extremophiles and exobiology. and way more....Perhaps setting up skypes with schools and/or famliy audiences in the DC area?
