Where is April’s baby? That is what thousands of people are asking concerning the New York Zoo’s most famous resident – “April the Giraffe”. For nearly two months people from around the globe have been watching and waiting for the impending birth of the predicted five foot baby calf that is suppose to pop out of her … at any time.

I write this with a heart that is still so heavy with sadness for those who have lost their loved ones as a result of the terrorist acts on September 11th.

Not too far from Pittsburgh or the West Virginia border in a little town called Mill Run, Pennsylvania sits one of the most unique architectural treasures in the United States – Fallingwater.
