Blue and Pink -- Arizona

I hope everyone is having a great weekend!  My plan: getting everything ready in the nursery for the new baby--washing clothes, putting up artwork, etc.  Would you believe I already lost a baby sock?  Tiny things!

Does anyone have leads on a good plastic prototyping service? My husband's company has digital files for a certain model he'd like made quickly, but he is having trouble finding a good prototyper willing to make it on a fast turn. Note we already have 3D printed versions but we need something customer-quality for beta testing.

They (Shapeways) are overseas, so the turnaround isn't quite as quick as I'd like, but otherwise they do excellent work, and their site is fairly user-friendly.  Since my designs were cranked out by a program I wrote, there were a few glitches when converting the format, but I'm sure that was more about the way that I wrapped the poly's than anything on their end, and (As I said) the results were beautiful.

Neat!  Elephants can distinguish between the language used by Maasai men, who can sometimes pose a danger to elephants, vs. Kamba people, who rarely pose a danger to elephants.  The elephants can also distinguish male voices from those of women and children.

Elephants will also make a purring sound like cats (albeit louder) when they are rubbed on their stomachs.

Only a few more weeks until the bulb flowers will start to emerge from the cold of winter.  I am really looking forward to it!

Silhouette of a City

Who can recognize the city in this photo?  I'll give you a hint: there was a lot of smog this day, which made for a fun photo opportunity!
