Comments

Nice cone and needle pictures. Lets keep the "Hems have Stems" mantra going. I can't actually take (or give proper) credit for it. A teacher came up with it at a field day that we did.

"hems have stems" - I like that! I'm going to remember that one.

thanks to akanoti for giving us this saying
