Geology - did you know? (about Zebra Rock)

To begin the New Year of 2013, I have added a NEW PAGE to the Zebra Rock Gallery web site ( http://www.zebrarock.biz.). You will find the new page here

The new page is calledGeology: did you know? It provides information about the geological nature, location and age of Zebra Rock. 

Some of the important facts about this unique and ancient sedimentary rock are:

  1. Zebra Rock is 600 million years old
  2. Zebra Rock is a siltstone and is porous to water.
  3. Zebra Rock is found ONLY in the East Kimberley adjacent to Lake Argyle

Managing your website

If you have trouble managing your website (on Vistaprint) using Internet Explorer, as can happen, then fire up Google Chrome and search using Google for “Dashboard Vistaprint”. When the page appears click on 'My Account' at the top then look for 'My Resources' and choose Websites, then Edit Website (at the top) or Website Dashboard (on the left hand panel, where you can also choose to create your Mobile webpage or edit your Blog - as I am doing now!).
Voila! I hope this works in the future
