Can you really build a squirrel this accurately ... with only 18 distinct pieces (plus rotating joints for movement)?

Yes! Accurate design with a small number of piece types is one of our distinctives. Check out our latest design: Squirrel (available in two levels).

"When we asked to see recipes that tell the stories of where our community members come from, we noticed that it was people, not places, that figured into your most important dishes."

"Literature is not high school and it’s not actually necessary to know what everyone around you is wearing, in terms of style, and being influenced by people who are being published in this very moment is going to make you look just like them, which is probably not a good long-term goal for being yourself or making a meaningful contribution."

- Rebecca Solnit
Best advice on writing I've read in a very, very long time. #writing

I have a couple of dear friends who regularly ask thoughtful, challenging questions. The questions are mentally and spiritually stimulating. They invigorate. They spur me on to do my own thinking and exploring. One, for example, was: "What's the best part of your life currently?" Another: "What is your dream job?"

The latter question not only helped me realize I already had worked in my dream jobs (engineer, stay-at-home mom, home educator) but also led to yet another dream job (editor).

What are some good questions you've received from dear friends? What questions could you ask them?
