    We loved the new exhibit on Mollusks at the Harvard Museum of Natural History in Cambridge, which includes some of the amazingly realistic glass models of octopus and squid (yep, they’re mollusks, like clams and oysters) hand crafted by the same German glass artisans who made Harvard’s famed Glass Flowers.
    Don’t miss it when you’re next in Harvard Square.
