And yes, there is a story to the new avatar. My good friend Bob Lew took that photo about a year or so back, at Cove 2. There was an elderly, dying GPO that was out in the open and we both were able (and priviledged) to be able to get close to him for several photos. We snapped away, and toward the end, the poor fellow (the octo, not Bob) reached out with one tentacle and I swear I felt him push me, as if to say "enough, will you leave me alone?" Maybe I'm anthropomorphizing, but it was almost a poignant moment, and we moved away. This was one of the pix Bob took, and it's one of my favorite UW pix of me.

Boy, you must not be around very many out of control punners, (unlike me!) I hear worse all the time!!
Valerie, is their a story behind your new avatar? Inquiring (nosy) minds want to know!

I have absolutely NO idea... Except that Jan has pictures of "it" above seemingly "coming out of" Giant Plumose... weird... There certainly are enough of them at Titlow... I just did not connect the "stuff" with the plumose. Do compound social ascidians "come out" of plumose?
