Every art teacher hopes that what they teach will catch fire with a kid's creativity. That's what happened when Peg taught Marcy to do Ukrainian eggs. The girl can't stop! She loves doing intricate designs. And we certainly have plenty of eggs for her to use.

It's been a very busy week for Nina Totenberg, what with the Supreme Court upholding Health Care Reform. Lots to report, lots to check in on, lots of investigation.
What's that? You don't smell anything, you say? That's right, because we cleaned the entire run today. I believe it's called mucking.

We needed to do this for a while now. The earth in the run had become compacted and was not smelling very good on rainy days.
