The components are spherical, yes, arranged one after another with
bridging between. Rounding kilometers to miles, if you figure on about 5
miles length, the width is about 2 or 2.5 miles, so it's fairly rectangular.

Marymom: just send the note and the money to the same address, and tell
Susan the situation, saying you checked with me and it was okay. No problem.
(And just $10, please, not $11.)
