Mysterious and Nearly Invisible Force Field

Zane at the National Zoo’s bird display. They have an open indoor area and these mats are used to help keep the birds from escaping—or to entertain young fellows like this. Yes, another roll your mouse over the picture trick.

We caved in last night and let Zane eat whole blueberries. Erring on the side of caution we’ve been halving anything he might choke on like blueberries, grapes, and so forth. Blueberries being on the small side and much easier to chew seemed like something he could handle on his own now. Sure enough, he sat down with an open pint of them and pigged out.
