Dean,

Here's a tutorial/book that you should check out:
http://www.greenteapress.com/thinkpython/

How to Think Like a (Python) Programmer by Allen B. Downey

He generously has a free PDF to download, and the book makes use of
some code - swampy.py

I think if you 1) Read the book and try the examples, and at least try
/some/ of the assignments, and 2) Examine the source code of the
swampy program, you'll learn how to do exactly what you want - create
two different balls (or technically, as many as you'd like/the phone
will run).

Good luck!
-Wayne

To be considered stupid and to be told so is more painful than being
called gluttonous, mendacious, violent, lascivious, lazy, cowardly:
every weakness, every vice, has found its defenders, its rhetoric, its
ennoblement and exaltation, but stupidity hasn't. - Primo Levi
