Hook Down

Well not exactly. The anchor is still in its roller, but we have come to rest in a rickety marina about midway up the Sea of Cortez in a community called Santa Rosalia. The town has some fame as the site of an iron church reportedly designed by Gustave Eiffel of Eiffel Tower fame. It was constructed for an exposition in France in the 1880s and then dismantled and ultimately shipped to Baja California, where a French company was conducting copper mining operations. Some skeptics contend that the church may not have been designed by Eiffel, but those folks dare not show their face here.

We will be posting some fresh stuff on California stem cell matters after we work our way through nearly 150 emails and other related news.
