Steve On Fox Business News

Yesterday,Thursday, I was limo’d to Burlington, VT to appear on Fox Business News. I was supposed to be on last week but got bumped when market tanked. This was the weirdest TV appearance because I could not see the Fox hosts in NYC (Chris and Lori) and they could not see me…. but everything went well.

Chief Tormentor Gets Tormented

Below is a Stave puzzle I started 2 days ago, a bit big for the tray but I’m too lazy to go find a bigger tray. This puzzle was a surprise Christmas present from Martha in 1989. She had been working for Stave for 5 years then and somehow she secretly cut it without my knowledge. Talk about a surprise!! Now I’m hoping all the pieces are there because this is the puzzle I used to creat the youTube video where these pieces form a butterfly in slow-motion, then explode into the air and form a flying butterfly. Keep your fingers crossed.
