Welcome to the Sisterhood of the Traveling Igorota

Miss Iggy at the "Cloud Gate" sculpture at Chicago's Millennium Park last September 2009. Locals like to call it the "Bean" because it's shaped like one, but shiny and silvery. It's created by British artist Anish Kapoor--his very first public outdoor art installation in the United States.
The "Bean" weighs 110 tons, measures 66 feet long and 33 feet high, and is made up of polished stainless steel plates forged together to become this fluid-looking metallic masterpiece.
Miss Iggy can proudly spill the beans that she's "been to the Bean!"
And speaking of beans, the sisterhood would like to wish a Happy Valentine Birthday to our correspondent in Ireland, Little Ms Firefly, with these conversation Jelly Belly beans! Cool Beans!
