from the realm of the absurd...
Full morning of errands down south. Home in plenty of time to ponder the next phase of roofing. Pondered away the afternoon then took a baby step by affixing one strip of end closure to a metal flat with Lexel caulk (the best caulk on the planet!). Critical to get the first piece of polycarbonate lined up before proceeding with the rest of the "big window" on the greenhouse roof. Side note: the wheat grass soil test is progressing well.
Now for the ABSURD... as if all the other current world news of the day isn't bad enough. This "alert" on Yahoo struck me because of my early days in the fashion industry. "Honeysuckle has been named as Pantone’s color of the year for 2011. The reddish-pink shade of the color reflects an energetic and uplifting mood hoped to be felt in the new year. The 2010 color was Turquoise, and with its bluish hue, it served as an escape for many¸ encouraging feelings of peace and calmness. Now, with the introduction of Honeysuckle as the new color, it establishes a stimulating influence to lift spirits." good luck with that!... 54,74,26,0,B
