Friday 56: All About Mushrooms

* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56.
* Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence (plus one or two others if you like) along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of this blog.
*Post a link along with your post back to this blog.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

This week's selection is from a magazine I picked up recently and it's sitting right next to my computer. It's called Mother Earth News and page 56 is an article about Mushrooms.

The thing all fungi have in common - and what distinguishes them from the other biological kingdoms - is they exude powerful enzymes to digest their food externally, absorbing nutrients directly into their cells.
