I went to last night when I had a spare moment, and they've changed it a lot! Now it isn't just word definitions, they have languages, math, grammar world capitals, identifying famous paintings and chemical symbols, and you can change subjects and levels and it keeps your rice tally.

Also, I think the last time I posted about it, they gave 10 grains of rice for every correct answer. Its been 20 grains for awhile now, and hopefully with more subjects, they'll get more interest and more advertising and can do better!

There are approximately 7200 grains of rice in a cup, so start 'freericing'!

Where did our tiny little kittens go?

Can you tell which of these cats are the kittens, and which is Kiara, the 3 year old rescued stray? (Kiara is the one in the middle, Zoe on the left, Kya on the right). The kittens have gone through a sudden huge growth spurt! It seems like no matter how many times we fill their bowls, they're always empty the next time we go into the kitchen. Instead of scrawny little kittens, they have developed quite chubby bellies. They actually weigh more than Kiara now! (Kiara had a bad life before us, she lived in cage and most likely got less than adequate nutrition, so she is very petite and skinny.)

Kiara weighs 6.5 pounds, and the kittens have already passed 7! They're only 8 months old, they're quickly catching up to Ian, who weighs 10!

We have been posting some videos of the cats to youtube, if you want to check them out here.

This new video of Zoe is particularly cute. Click here.
