    Hi Lalitha

    Very interesting informations.

    On the lighter side, I didn't know the ear and nose continue to grow the entire life., its amazing and a bit too scary... may be i'l measure them today to check after a few months to calculate the growth rate. Next time when somebody bump on me, i'l say "hey man watch out, don't spoil my skeleton making process - I don't want it to be teda...

    Thanks

    vishy
