    Default The Fat Lady Hasn't Sung Yet!

    I got a giant "Whoa, whoa, whoa!" PM from the Minster this evening!

    He thinks he sees activity in the gaskelliana pod parent flasks!

    I let him deliver the details...take it, Aaron!

    Well, just before skipping off to Russian class, I tipped the jars slightly...helps to see the development against the dark background. And what did I see? A few little dots of green in one of the gask pods...very exciting news since we both have been anxious to know whether or not we will see the opposite pod parent seeds produce. Lets keep our fingers crossed.

    And now it is official...what I had hoped was the case appears to be so...we have life in both pod parent gask flasks <phew!>.

    Hey, it's early here, and I'll sneak a celebratory drink!

    I really had figured it was too late to hope! But the Minister, he's da man! He didn't abandon faith.

    Thank you, Aaron for such lovely flasking! We got 'em drunk, but we didn't kill 'em!

    Hey there, Mr. Minister, Sir...

    How about some pictures of the corms? Surely there's something we can look at by now.
