Alone in the cold blues and soft pinks, I melted away into the snow. Looking on it now, it seems another time, another life, even another place. You sometimes forget, but my pictures help me to remember. Otherwise the experience just slips away, like so many other less important things.

& I'm posting it here too. I need all the good vibes I can get. So, I never graduated high school. It's not something I really like to advertise because of any stigma associated with it. However, tomorrow and Friday I will be taking the TASC test and hopefully getting my high school equivalency. Wish me luck! I'm going to need it for the math, yikes!

That was a tough processing challenge working through all that light pollution to reveal the Horsehead and Flame nebulae. This is the best I could produce with my minimal knowledge of Pixinsight, switching between Harry's Astroshed tutorials and scavenging online for other tips and tricks to editing DSLR images in PixInsight. I'm pretty pleased with this as it is hard to pull out much detail after removing light pollution without adding too much of that blotchy grainy noise in the background.

Hi there! From the preliminary research I have done I kind of think I need your expert advice.

What I think I've discovered thus far :

1. At first I thought it was macrame but now, I'm pretty sure it's crochet.

2. It's some sort of vintage thread, I am not sure how old though.

3. I have no idea how to find the pattern :( but it might be "edging"

4. I need a teeny tiny crochet hook.

5. I'm not exactly great at crocheting, I have an exceptionally hard time reading patterns, but I'm willing to try so I can finish these beautiful strips.
 
Crochet mystery? Any ideas?

I got this little bag of lace a couple years ago at a garage sale. I tucked them away and never took a detailed look, but most recently during Christmas decorating I examined them further and came to the conclusion ×they were handmade× but never finished. If that's a correct assumption, then I feel they should be finished. I don't know how or what the pattern is or what techniques were used to create them but there is yards of finished lace strips. It seems like a shame to have this beautiful work left unfinished (for whatever reason) if I can figure out. Anyone have any helpful advice?

I imagine Icebreakers gum is just about as dangerous as the sugar free Haribo gummy bears. I have not experienced the hell bear myself, however in the midst of a lapse of self control I nommed on the delicious juicy gum. Don't nom on the delicious juicy gum. Your whole digestive system will thank you for it. The sugar alcohols have a laxative effect. Oh, the crippling pain, the bloating, the inhuman rumbles of intestinal distress. Laxative effect might sound polite, but the experience is anything but.

Xylitol is known to have a laxative effect when consumed in large quantities. Years ago, we bought a 1-pound box of sugar-free chocolates for my grandmother, and the confectioner cautioned us about the xylitol. But, I think, she would have had to eat the whole box in short order to feel the effects. That being said, every body is different, and what has little-to-no effect on one person, can have horrendous consequences for another.
