DK, many years ago, in trying to find a good career path, I sat down and wrote out all the things i love to do. at the top of the list, 1. Creating environments where life can thrive., and 2. Being intelligent/creative. =)

Hi Arnold, - I'd say a good rule of thumb is 2 mm growth in length per week, fairly consistently.

I'll see what I can do; it probably won't be today, as I am pretty booked, today. I did see Rolf yesterday, and he's growing well and looking handsome.

So I went down there, asking after Rolf, and there were whisperings. Hansel, his dark eyed brother, came up to the glass, insisting Rolf is letting the attention go to his head. So I shot a pic of Hansel, instead.

He might be a previous offspring of Mrs. Vintage Line - you can see the effect of the white stippling on his bold T-Rex markings. I just love all the variations...

If success or failure of this planet and of human beings depended on how I am and what I do. How would I be? What would I do?
