Patrick Gannon gave a presentation about cut paper art. It was fantastic! And fun! We got a chance to make one ourselves. I did mine at home. I like doing it.
Check out his beautiful art at his website here. His art has appeared in Cricket Magazine, TIME Asia, and other publications.

The crane also lifted concrete slabs. The worker directed them over to the pile.
These concrete slabs will be the outside wall of the house. Typically, houses are made of wood here.
This netting is to protect workers from falling tools, etc.

When Big Sister and Little Brother were babies (18 and 14 years ago) we didn't use diaper pins. Diapers were held on by woolen or cotton diaper covers that had velcro fasteners.

A crane was brought in to do the heavy lifting.
It lifted metal sections of the frame. Workers fitted them into place.
Our vegetable stand man watched from below. Can you see him at the corner of his stand?w

The litter for this litter box is made out of recycled wood chips. The litter can be used for one month. Urine goes down through the grated tray and is collected in a block of compressed wood chips. The blocks need to be changed each week. For two cats more often. This system is so much easier than other cat litter. Our box has a cover so that the cats have privacy.
