This is a glass ball that sits on top of our TV. I bought it in Venice on a backpacking trip in 2001 and in Rome I dropped it down a flight of marble stairs. It developed a small crack that you can hardly see but I am still astounded that it didn't shatter.Jade in 2002. She is now very old and blind but she still loves to roll around like a little acrobat. She is called Jade because her eyes were bright green. Now, sadly they are just black and cloudy.
Tussock. If you come to NZ you will see Tussock. I am not sure where this was taken, I think it was near Dunedin.
