Well, here's another challenge. I think that I'm destined to fail at the weight loss challenge. I don't think there's an end date unless I have all of 2009 to work at it. Then I may manage to get 5 out of 10 pounds done.
The pouring of resin - fraught with bubbles. I tried the huffing method. Didn't work and I ended up streaking my hair with resin. Not a good colour. You can't see it in the picture but there are parts in the bezel that resisted taking on the resin. Thus there were other parts that overflowed on the opposite side. I have them all sitting on wax paper to keep them from sticking to the board that's underneath but I don't know if this will work. I've taken to pushing them around on the wax paper and always get my big fat fingers in the resin. I may use them anyway depending how bad they are.
Now, what is wrong with this picture... I've had this cactus for years and it has grown tall and filled out very nicely. Then, a couple of months ago, the 2 largest stalks started to bend over and, at the base of these tall stalks, are growing little nubbins. I don't think I should cut off the large ones in case this is some kind of cloning activity. It bugs me though. Looks very weird. Anyone know what's going on here? Is it a special kind of reproductive activity?
