    We've been talking about a glider section. If you round all the leading edges, it really makes them fly much better, and longer. The sheets of foam they sell at Michael's is perfect for making gliders. Gliders are so much fun to fly!! :)

    When you go to a site you like, click, or drag your cursor till the whole address in the search box is Blue, then right click "Copy", then "Right Click", "Paste" on the page, and the link will appear. You can also right click "Copy Link Location". Play with it. If you mess it up, I'll fix it, O.K.? :)
