Singing in the rain - Gene Kelly
My pet peeve phrase is "these ones" or "those ones". What is wrong with just these or those, why do people need to add the "ones"?

What are those plastic colored things for on that ring? How were they used for braces?
I wondered that too and I wore braces for years.
Another way to blend color pencil is to use baby oil on a blending stump. You get much the same results with it as gamsol or mineral spirits but smells nicer. Just don't overload the stump and make the colors bleed into the area you don't want it.
At the end of your amazing challenge are you going to show us all 364?
The human rainbow; nicely displayed!
😱😡how they can walk without the pants falling down around the ankles.
After seeing a kid at a bus stop with the crotch of his pants at knee level and commenting on "how does he walk"; a man I worked with, several years younger than I, shared his philosophy of drooping pants. He said you should never wear anything that you can't run away from danger in. Make sense to me.
My husband and I raise cacao (the bean from which chocolate is made) here in Hawaii so I a bias. But I have been amazed by how "good" chocolate can change your well being and I loved this idea of using it for long flights.
I want to make you aware of some additional information though. All chocolate bars are not alike, if you want to eat healthy chocolate you should be looking for bars that are at least 70% cacao. The percentage that you see more and more on labels as a marketing tag represents the amount of cacao verses the amount of sugar and other ingredients. If the bar has no percentage on it, like most milk chocolate and other inexpensive bar, you can assume that it contains more sugar than cacao. Sugar is much cheaper than cacao.
Another thing of interest, it has been proposed by doctors that once milk is introduced into the chocolate the health benefits plummet. That makes milk chocolate less healthy than dark chocolate.
Regardless I am all for eating chocolate just because it tastes yummy, so enjoy your favorite.
The worst is over for the Big Island, I live about 12 miles north of Hilo and fortunately we are on a hill, no damage from flooding for us. In the 24 hours from midnight on Thursday the 24th to midnight on Friday the 25th we measured 26.33 inches of rain at our weather station. At one point the rain was falling at a rate of 6" per hour. Fortunately, the winds were not as strong as they could have been, so no major damage from wind. We have an agricultural berm that runs across the center of our 15 acres and at the worst there was a small lake backed up in our pasture because it was running faster than it could empty into the gulch on the edge of our property. The cows and sheep were smart enough to stay on the "dry" side of the berm.
Hilo was swimming but saw the worst on Thursday and received only a paltry 12" on Friday the 25th. There is a lot of damage but reports has been coming in slowly. Have not heard about any deaths so in all we were lucky. I wish the other islands the best of luck, they are not as accustom to heavy rain as East Hawaii Island.
I have been on the fence about Knit It Now for years; now that they are upping the price on Aug 15th I have to get serious. I will be watching the responses.

I love this kind of remodeling; I always say "give a girl a Wonder Bar and there is no stopping her". Definitely take before and after, you will even appreciate them years from now when you are settled and happy in your new place.
I have the Knitpicks set and just love the feel of the wood and they have a nice thumb groove. I like them so much I find myself reaching for them for regular crochet as well.
