Thx Jabba.I googled to see if you have these birds in North America and you dont have them but you do have that saying that new born kids are brought by the stork.
This is the original bird from that saying.
Migrates between Europe and South Africa.


Yeah, unfortunately no storks, except for every once in a while you can catch a glimpse of one dropping a newborn off down a chimney :P

Tomorrow im going to start building the 5 triangular windows on the top of the dome.
All 5 windows on the top will open and close at same time and look somewhat like a flower opening her petals.
Il be using stainless steel bolts and nuts and plates to weld and build all the hinges custom as there is nothing like this that can be bought or found for sale.

Wow, that's the way to do it!  Good luck.
