My 100th Post: Just for Fun

Today I celebrate my 100th post!  I am so grateful to the visitors that have come from 62 different countries for their support and interest in my posts.  Health willing, I plan to offer more posts in the future.

I thought I would offer a glimpse into some items that have meant a lot to me over the years.  I hope you appreciate them.

This lion bank(which is empty) was given to me by Grandma for my junior high performance as Androcles in George Bernard Shaw's Androcles and the Lion.

A Kein Bottle, which was given to me by Dad.  A Mobius strip is a two-dimensional surface with one edge.  Technically, a Klein Bottle is a three-dimensional surface with one edge.(It is impossible to realize in practice.)

A Kein Bottle, which was given to me by Dad. A Mobius Strip is a two-dimensional surface with one edge.  Felix Klein tried to imagine what would happen if you sewed two Mobius Strips together to create a bottle with one side and no edge.  Since its outside is its inside, it has no volume!  But it requires four dimensions for the surface to pass through itself without a hole.

Thanks again for your ideas and support.  Hope to see you soon!
