Two views of a fruit, probably inedible, dropped by a big ornamental tree up the street. These are 2 in./5 cm across. Heavy for their size. They feel as hard as wood, but they start to shrivel in a few days. Originally enclosed in a fuzzy, leathery, light green coat, which easily peels off. Obviously I don't know the name of the tree, or I'd just say.

Tim, that roof makes clear that architects in this part of the country have quite a bit of freedom because they don't need to worry about snow loads.

It's not a design that would work in Tahoe. Thick soupy fog (the normal weather for that location) doesn't weigh much.

About the globe
"Made in Germany, the granite sphere is precision machined to balance to the tolerance of 0.02 mm and weighs 2.5 tons. Pressurized water (25lbs/sq. inch) lets the Globe float freely on a fine film of water without danger to fingers. The Globe was weighted at the South Pole and offset by 23.5° to the sun before the continents were engraved. Left untouched the Globe eventually rotates around the Earth's axis point North towards the Polar Star."

Interesting! I've added that to my list of "things to see the next time I visit BC."

Kevin, that globe is news to me. Is a magnet inside?

Thanks Tim. It is what is called a Kugel fountain.

No magnet. It floats on pressurized water. Just a light touch will spin it....even children can make
it move.

If there's no magnet, what causes the action described in this part? "Left untouched the Globe eventually rotates around the Earth's axis point North towards the Polar Star." (Maybe it should say "axis TO point"?) Now I'm thinking the mechanism may be simply the same inertia that makes a Foucault pendulum knock down pegs.

I think the description might be a bit off. That came from the plaque that is nearby.
What happens because of the way that it is weighted and offset is that when it does stop
spinning it is pointing not to the polar star.
