Wow! Threads been busy while I have been gone. Along with my normal activities on a day off today, I also visited the local museum. I asked the staff
at the front desk if there were any one on the staff who might be able to help me with my enquiries. Upon showing them that I was serious, by showing
them my pharmacy bag full of samples, and my photographs, they thought briefly on the subject, before underlining a number on the back of one of their
pamphlets, and asking me to contact a gentleman who manages part of the museum, who is also a geologist. He, they say, will be able to deal with the
samples and figure out what's what.
I have to wait until Monday to call him however, because that is the next time he will be available, so until then I will place the samples in my
cupboard. It's a wait to be sure, but that's a bit of a result really. I thought I would be sending samples to several places, but to have someone in
my local area be able to deal with this would be ideal in my opinion.
Edit to add:
I'm sorry if anyone was getting agitated about my whereabouts. Wednesdays are my day off, and I have people in town to visit whenever I get the
chance. I managed to see my best mate, a guitarist mate I used to jam with, and a couple of old mates from the pub I used to drink in when I was
eighteen. However I haven't got a roaming internet capability, so it's only when I get home that I can access the site and update you good people. I
appreciate your concern everyone, but my lifestyle means that I am often away from home on days off, so don't worry too much
