The first of the new buds on my orchid opened today!
The kids helped daddy program an Arduino to cycle through the color spectrum on an RGB LED.

We really enjoyed our visit to the L.A. County Fair this year. The two exhibit halls we enjoyed the most were the animation exhibits and the marine life exhibits.
Above is a collage of pictures I took of the animation exhibits: top row, two food animals from Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2, the family on the “set” of The Simpsons; middle row, Robotech paraphernalia (Kevin called me a fan girl for taking this shot); bottom row, Kung Fu Panda and the castle from Shrek.
Here’s a collage of the marine life exhibits: horseshoe crabs, nurse sharks, a real live mermaid ;), and a sea lion.
If you plan to go this year, be sure to stop by their website at http://lacountyfair.com, where they post special deals, schedules, etc.
