Thanks! I'm going to bookmark that one! Ryan has, particularly of late, become very interested in stars, galaxies and planets. I'm sure he's going to really enjoy that site!

And Folks in this image you will see the amazing Eggestential Element Galaxy. Note the oval shape that very closly resembles a chickens egg. Look hard and you will see the elemental rings surrounding the galaxy. This is the most rare kind of galaxy known to man because as soon as it is spotted in tends dissappear in someones Egg Salad sandwich and there is no other proof that this Eggistential Element Galaxy ever existed as they vanish almost as quickly as they are discovered!!

Man!,...

This is the second time tonight I wanted to post an image.

Sooo. I guess I'll just change my Avatar for the holiday, and look into
smugmug in the morning.

Anyhow, If you can see them, my wife and daughters have just started doing
these "pysanky' eggs.

You drip bees wax on an egg, then dip in a light color. where the wax is no dye goes. More bees wax, a darker color and so forth....
When you get all the layers you want melt off the wax...

Go to http://ukrainiangiftshop.com/ so see some incredible eggs.

(That's where Kathy gets her supplies too.)

Yeah, the Galaxy is really Fabulous!

RRRRRRRRRRRR

WHOA!!!!! I didn't see bodan bobs post. Took me a minute to shoot the eggs, then change the Avatar.
THAT's what i'm Talkin' about!
Can't wait to show the kids in the morning.

Cool website here. You guys are great

Bohdan,

Your wifes work is nothing short of fabulous!

We were introduced to it by my daughters girl scout leader.
She and my wife have since become good friends.

Thanks for the link to your page.

My wife thanks you for your kind words. She says to warn your wife and daughters that making pysanky is addicting and therapeutic at the same time.
