Octopus Wolfi are mostly found in the Indo-Pacific region. These super-wee cephalopods measure only 0.6 inches in length and weigh less than a gram. They are also called the Pygmy Octopus, and also the Star Sucker Octopus because males have star-shaped suckers on their arm tips.

Have you ever stopped to think of how amazing it is that we are not only part of our galaxy–the Milky Way–but that the Milky Way is just one of many, many galaxies out there?

Astronomers have measured the age of the universe to be approximately 13.8 billion years old. Because of the connection between distance and the speed of light, this means they can look at a region of space that lies 13.8 billion light-years away

.But what about the size and shape of the universe? According to NASA, scientists know that the universe is flat with only about a 0.4 percent margin of error, as of 2013.. A flat universe is an infinite universe; thus the size of the universe is infinite.

Since its Monster Monday I thought I would share one of my favorite cards I made for Steve for our 13th wedding anniversary. The Clock in the Haunted Mansion attraction at Walt Disney World is possibly my favorite thing in the whole ride. I was drawing it from memory here, and I accidentally added two more horn-things to the “head”, but I did remember that terrific number 13 it wears.
