I've just found a new blog that is a must-follow: Becky Crew's Running Ponies.
Run, don't walk, over there - and read wondrous posts such as her discussion of a study that found chocolate** appears to enhance snails' ability to form lasting memories. I wonder what will happen to chocolate sales at the uni shop, when I share this one with my students...
Also, boogie-woogie aphids!
** actually, a chemical found in chocolate; the poor snails missed out on the whole mouthfeel side of the experience :)
