Hello to all the visitors from Skippy the Bush Kangaroo! I've been fairly bad about posting to the site, and wouldn't you know, I'd missed reading Skippy for a day, and now company has come to call. So welcome to all the visitors from blogtopia (and yes, they coined that phrase)!

The Spinning Girl

OK, check out this image.

Is she spinning clockwise, counter-clockwise, or both? Answers below the jump.

I see her as only spinning clockwise. The hubby sees here spinning in either direction; it changes if something causes the screen to change. I also found that if I look at the shadow rather than the girl, I see her spinning only counter-clockwise. Weird. For more info, check out this post at Neuroligca Blog. Enjoy!

Where Ya Been?

We found this mapping tool for listing what states we've visited - very cool! Here's the list of states that Alex has been to:

Alex's Visited States
visited 31 states (62%)

And here is Jeff's list:

Jeff's Visited States
visited 33 states (66%)

This year we'll be going to Nevada, Arizona, Utah, and Maine, so we'll be filling in a few more states. Here's the link to create your own visited states map. The rules we used for counting a state as visited is that you had to stay at least one night in that state. Simply driving through or being at an airport doesn't count.
