To all my Dearest Followers and Blogger friends.

I have been absent from ADDGRAINONEARTH for more than a month.

The Reason is that I was drown in my newly set up 3d printing company that focus and time is the main issue to build a strong foundation for a long journey.

But ADDGRAINONEARTH is not far away still, Sydney is still strolling his garden trail while whispering to all plants and trees.

At the same time, also hope you all can feel and hear what he was like to share with you.

He will be back surely as he promised, vowed to this greenland.

We shared this  piece of holy ground without ranking.

Meanwhile, watch him and Rock Solid 3D in action.
