    Efficient use of the sun's energy is not necessarily a modern phenomena. Many centuries ago the Anasazi Indians of Southern Colorado found a way to capture the oblique rays of a winter sun. They simply built their stone houses against the south slope of canyon walls. The remains of their solar dwellings  are still with us today.

    For a change, here's something different my friend. Let's observe how humans interact with their pets ok?  Just watch this....

    Here's another creative art form that humans are capable of using both the hands and fingers, which I'd love to share with you. What do you think of this???
    Well my friend, hope your weekend rocks - hehehe!
