Please join me:


After a lot of thought I have decided that I would prefer to host my blog at Blogspot instead. It has far more free features and functionality. I will leave this stuff up for awhile but in the future you can find me here. Thank you!

However, it’s only 20 inches high. Is it too short to use it this way?

Elephants are Cool

Also, did you know that along with having crazy complex social structures, elephants can feel grief and make music?
