What I learned at Ecofest

1.  Anything with the suffix "-fest" is awesome.

2.  Solar powered I-Pod chargers are super cool.  (Now I can play Plants vs. Zombies almost guilt-free.)


3.  I want a shipping container house.

4.  Anyone can grow oyster mushrooms in a box in their house. ----->

5.  I am a sucker for all products eco...

6.  ...but I'm not fooled by green-washing.

7.  Free swag is great.  (Well, I knew that from before...)

And here are a few pictures of the babies from a few days ago.  I brought them outside because I thought they might enjoy the warm sun.  Well, it turns out they hate the sun.  I think it was too bright and it made them feel vulnerable.  I took a few pictures and put them back into the safety of their box (which we upgraded a few days ago because they outgrew their first one.)  I took some more pictures today, they don't really look like this anymore.

Elsa pants when she's nervous.

Hard to get close ups while their moving.

Elsa's beautiful wing feathers.  I think they look like the markings on a moth.
 And a video.  It's a little long.  Sorry.  You can skip the last 30 seconds or so.
