I can compile my ice skating experiences pretty much into one little succinct paragraph, but my appreciation and love for it is more than that. Winter Olympics = watching both figure skating and ice dancing. Could I be happier for the few weeks that they're on the television non-stop? Probably not. And what is my favorite sport to watch? That would be ice hockey. I really just love ice skating and most things that involve ice skating.
We went ice skating a few weeks back and it really was so much fun. Sometimes I go, and even for how much I love ice skating, I get tired rather quickly. But this last go around was a reminder to me how much I can really enjoy the activity, particularly given the right circumstance, company, and mood.
This video just popped up on the Wimp feed. It's pretty awesome. Can you imagine living someplace where you could ice skate to your destination in the morning? That would be amazing.

In the meantime I suppose I'll have to keep making my trips to the ice skating rink to get my regular fix of ice skating.
Today we'll look at the Maxilla. You actually have two bones that make up your Maxilla, a right and a left half. Your Maxilla is essentially the bone that makes up the upper part of your mouth (connected to your upper teeth) as well as extending towards your cheek bones and up along your nose a bit. When you see children with cleft pallets, it is usually an indicator of an incorrect fusing of their maxilla bones before birth.
