Gosh, folks, we already have a winner for the nascent 'Name the Diatom' contest. First prize goes to (fanfare and drum roll, please) Queen Big O of the sunny state of Fla. The winner receives a Diatom designed with her choice of color and shape, and delivered to her via email (when it is finished, of course.) Congratulations!
(Damn! I forgot! (sigh) The winning name is Purple Fusion!
