Sweet Smells of Spring
Speaker: Margareta Sequin, PhD
Thursday 6 March 2014, 7.30 pm
SF County Fair Bldg
9th Av & Lincoln Way in GGP
Sweet smells of spring blooms, flowering bushes and trees announce to us - and to pollinators - that spring has arrived.  In this lecture we'll look at some of the amazing compounds that compose plant scents in a gentle introduction to their organic chemistry, illustrated by many plant pictures.  
Margareta Sequin is the author of the book The Chemistry of Plants: Perfumes, Pigments, and Poisons, published by RSC (Cambridge, UK) in 2012

Chik Con 2 Union Square,  333 Post St., SF Sat April 12 at 3:00pm
It's time again for the bi-decadal Chik Con! Dust off any cocky, chicky, birdy, feathery, loosely related whatevers and come join us for the fun and games. There will be things for all, but of course chickenin' ain't easy and makes for some thirsty work.
Find the coup in Union Square for a soft-boiled start at 3:00 and the hard-boiled start of 4:00.
Everyone will be on their own, but there is safety in numbers. Predators are always looking to pick off the strays.
The first rule of chickenin' - you can be a big cock, but don't be a big dick.
Some of things you might find on our chicken adventures:
“Chicken and Bunny petting Zoo”- Who doesn’t want some lovin?
“Egg and Chicken arguments”( Who came first?)
“The chickens are pissed off! The Easter bunny is putting a high demand on their poor lil bums to produce high volumes of eggs this time of year...they might need to go on strike!”
“We all know that Cocks are very territorial...see which cock is the cockiest! Cock fights will determine the winner.. You might even win some money!”
Please come prepared to join in the games and create your own little scenes along the way. We will need some Bunnies and Eggs to help us out..... EARTH DAY S.F. FESTIVAL Sat Apr 19 2014

 240 miles north of Los Angeles 20 miles inland from the Pacific coast, situated in the hills and surrounded by nature for miles in each direction. This remote location will likely effect how late into the night the festival is allowed to play music
While swimming was not permitted at Lake Skinner, it is allowed at Lake San Antonio. (Unfortunately, the lake is currently dried up due to the state-wide drought.)
