It's supposed to hit the mid-60's here today. It gets chilly at night, but that's really only in the 30's or 40's. It means I have to wear long pajama pants with my tank top
I can't imagine ever leaving California.
Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.' - Isaac Asimov
I was thinking of the immortal words of Socrates, who said, "... I drank what?"
My sister and I used to make potholders when we were younger and I've recently started doing it again. It's so much fun! I've been experimenting with different ways of weaving the loops, different ways of finishing off the edges, etc. Today I went to Michael's to get different colors of wool and cotton yarn to try making my own loops. It wasn't as successful as I had hoped but I can still use the yarn to finish the edges. I want to try using cloth to make loops. I've found a few sites that give instructions on how to cut socks or tshirts into potholder loops.
I'll have to post some pictures of the potholders I've done.

I am making my own pot holders but I am sewing two pieces of fabric together with batting in the middle then binding it. My mother always made our pot holders.
You don't have to attend every argument you are invited to.
Pikachu, I used to make those loop potholders too when I was a kid. I bet loops cut from sleeves of t-shirts would work.
Nennie, my SIL made potholders with fabric and batting too, so I have a good supply of them.
JohnnyK, what have you decided about going to Hungary?
I don't know. My thoughts change by the day.JohnnyK, what have you decided about going to Hungary?
Like right now I am feeling COMPLETELY pissed off and I hate everybody, especially those that ignore me when I am in need of someone acknowledging me. It pisses me off and I can't stand it. I'm also sick today, physically, which makes it worse.
Try to remember that a lot of times people come here specifically to post something that has happened or to respond to another FORT member, and sometimes there's a chain of posts like a conversation that flows. So they may not be snubbing you so much as carrying on with their own agenda.
I'm so pleased the weather is finally easing off!!!
Count your blessings!
I was referring to people I know personally, actually, mainly on Facebook. If it was FORT I wouldn't have sounded so harsh.
