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.

I believe Sea Walnut is no longer with us on the forum... there were some issues which rankled a few folks apparently.

I received a message today on YouTube from SeaWalnut and he is still with us... checks in regularly... glad you are still there SeaWalnut!

And thanks again for the rare melon seeds... I will plant them in the spring and give you a full report.

That's good to learn, Kevin.

Likewise I received a generous number of those same melon seeds along with a very nice written note for how to care for them asking that I please share some of them, which I plan to do since I received more seeds than I will ever have room to grow.  And that's part of what SW was hoping would happen; that some of the seeds be shared.

Cheers!

I think he had a unique viewpoint on many subjects... it's nice to get another perspective sometimes...

I was wondering what happened to SW. I miss his posts. Very unconventional thinker. D

Agree. It sucks that hostility leads to people leaving the forum just makes the ideas less diverse and the board less interesting.

Merry Christmas all....
