Dancing With Elephants is a weekly, family-oriented podcast magazine from Chicago. Hosts Greg, Tonya, Nikolai (age 8) and occasionally Caleb (age 6) discuss current events and review podcasts, books, computer games, movies, and television shows affecting today's 'trying-to-juggle-it-all' family. A couple of personal family stories and a featured Podsafe song round out the show. The way we see it: "Life's always gonna be a three ring circus, so you might as well enjoy it."

Okay, we're are up to Day 25.  Dennis Gray of 101 Uses For Baby Wipes offered his opinion that in the Day 19 photo, the middle plant, Plant C, appears to be thriving more than the others. I'll agree that it appears to be taller than the other as its stems are long an lanky. However, the other plants appear fuller, which is something that isn't easily discernible in a 2D photo. That said, none of the plants appear to be dying. Anyway, Dennis's observation has been logged. Do you have an comment? Please let us know. In the meantime, please stay tuned.

Okay Day 19 and no effect.  It has now dawned on me that I've now adopted 6 plants that are going to need continual care...  Almost makes me wish that there were casualties, so I've moved the plants closer to the edge of the counter where Caleb eats his breakfast and has been known to knock things over; wishful thinking.  Anyway, stay posted.

Okay, we've almost gone 2 weeks and still no difference between the plants... Other than I think they are growing.  Stay posted and let us know if you see any effect.

Right, finally caught up. This picture was taken this morning, so here are the plants (A-E, from left to right) on Day 10.  We're not noticing any differences or changes in the plants, except that they may be growing.  If you notice any change, please let us know.  And the experiment continues, stay posted.

Okay, here are the plants (A-E) on Day 6.  Once again, every 3 days the plants are receiving 50 ml of their respective experimental water.  Because this is a blind study we don't know which plant is getting which water.  Please let us know if you see any apparent effect of the water on the plants.  Alright, stay posted to this website for updates.
