"Fact of the day" from How Stuff Works:
Quicksand is rarely deeper than a few feet. It can occur almost anywhere if the right conditions are present. Quicksand is basically just ordinary sand that has been so saturated with water that the friction between sand particles is reduced. The resulting sand is a mushy mixture of sand and water that can no longer support any weight.
I find this very reassuring. Very reassuring. Just in case I ever come across quicksand.
Knitting a new headband. Not a fan of the yarn again... Lion Brand Magic Stripes. In Denim Stripes. I think my disappointment in the Micro Spun yarn is carrying over to all Lion Brand yarns. Not good, I know. Anyone have any favs from Lion Brand they can share? I just need a little encouragement that it will all be OK. The Magic Stripes is much softer in the skein than it is being knit up.
I'm working on some new stuff for the blog in Adobe Photoshop. Now if only I could figure out how to get it into the template. I'll have to ask my brother to help... it's always nice to have a computer genius in the family. What do you think about this for the title box?
I had it in the title box for a while, but the other title was still in there, too.... Help, brother-mine! Help!!!
