I don't know, but I'm thinking of taping a bunch of 'em together to use as a shower curtain. Or maybe I can cut a hole in my roof and make a skylight. The possibilities are endless

;)

But it's nice to know that some boxers out there really give a sheet!

The description says A7, so I used 4" x 3" for my calculations.

Yes, I missed that in the title. A7 = 74 × 105 mm = 74 / 25.4 × 105 / 25.4 = 2.9133 × 4.133 = 12.04 in2. So, 4" × 3" is a very close approximation.

$44.79 / 12.04 / 10 (pieces) = 37.2¢/in2, which is what you had. Sometimes I just like to work it out for myself, even though it comes out the same.

I think that would be so cool to have a tracker and make it from natural sources! I'm very big into recycling everything so I try to reuse everything too.

I thought it would be fun to do another greeting card exchange. The ones from the previous exchange have been loved by a family member battling cancer, and I am needing some more. So lets try this again.

Since you mentioned you are already underweight, I would think getting another opinion is important. Can't just live with it if you keep losing weight. I'm so sorry you been sick, and I hope you find a solution.

Indeed! The only two weekends were that one and mid-November. The locals thought that November might be too cold at night, and the leaves might be changing by October.

So I was searching my old posts to find the name of a book I had read with the AQ book club (turns out it was way back in 2010). Have you ever read just your own posts? It can be quite entertaining.

stamps that related to "wind" as in wind-up not "wind" as in windmill.

What about a wind-up windmill?

"Maybe the school's art teacher could use them. Art teachers save everything"

got me thinking ...

I could probably make very lightweight 'stained glass' shades for my front windows ....

Our windows face the woods and/or reservoir on three sides of the house - only if you look out the front windows do you see the road and one other house.

I've jokingly said that if I had the money, I'd install stained glass windows in the front of the house so we could really feel away from it all.

Hmm .... what would I use to make the different colors? Sharpies?

I don't disagree, but that seems like a lot of trouble to go to...to dig up the old image...to print it off, to research it.
I lean more toward copying the old direction or clue and amending or appending with a notation crediting the original.

But I'd like to hear more thoughts on this.
