$1,000 a Gram (meteor) HEY SOLAR

COLOMA-LOTUS VALLEY, Calif — In the week since a fireball shot across the sky and exploded, scattering a rare type of meteorite over California's Gold Country, these hills have drawn a new rush of treasure seekers.

 Once again there are lively saloons, fortune hunters jockeying for prime spots and astounding tales of luck — including that of Brenda Salveson, a local who found a valuable space rock while walking her dog Sheldon, named after the theoretical physicist on the TV show "The Big Bang Theory."

 It started April 22, Earth Day, with a blazing streak across a morning sky and a sonic boom that the next day had the older women in the "Gentle Stretching to Beautiful Music" class at Sierra Ballet comparing notes on how hard their windows shook.

You need to train your dogs to sniff out meteorite bits.

It would be easier to train the meteors to smell like bacon.
As much as I love these dogs, they are the dumbest lot I've ever had and I've had nearly 50 dogs in my lifetime.
Seriously, I think one of them is truly retarded, he only knows three words after 5 years, and the younger one follows his every move as if he is the smart one of the group.
If he walked off a cliff, she would take a running leap to catch up with him.
The smart one is ST little black mutt and she freaks out when she sees her tail. :blink:
