Slog-Along Sunday

Today has been full of questions for my classes, on top of the dull paper that I'm writing.
Question 1: If a yacht purchased in Connecticut in October of 1980 isn't delivered until May of 1981, and it is delivered to Rhode Island to someone who has paid cash for it back in October and received a marine bill of sale at that time, when does the title pass and does the seller owe the state of CT sales tax in October, May or not at all?
Answer: this chart looks Connecticut-y to me. It's "Let's Dance by the Light of the Moon" by Primitive Traditions. Let's get it out and start it instead of answering the stupid question about yachts and sales taxes.



I'm stitching it on 36 count pearl gray Edinburgh using Crescent Colors. The designer's picture doesn't do it justice (nor does mine). Her picture though shows a darker blue fabric. I looked and looked and didn't see anything I liked quite as well without changing the floss colors, so I went with the silvery gray instead. I love this designer and hope to see more from her; in fact, I love her Nantucket sewing chest--the chart is amazing, but I simply can't spring for such an expensive project right now, and unfortunately, it comes as a kit with the box and a lot of nice goodies. I tried to talk her into selling me just the chart, but although she was quite nice about it, she didn't want to split up the kit pieces. Understandable but oh, so regrettable. Speaking of regrettable, what's been troubling me about Charlotte Clayton I think I will fix. I'm a bit confused about which kind of silk the new version of the chart intended to use. I think there are a couple of options. Most of the colors I'm using seem pretty true to the photograph, but I think the teal color I'm using is just wrong. It's jarring. So I'm going to frog it out and use a yellowy-greener color instead. I hate frogging, but better to do it now and not feel antsy about the mismatch every time I pick the project up.


Question 2: which scenarios constitute a breach of implied warranty of fitness for human consumption in a restaurant meal: glass in soup; an olive pit in an olive; an olive pit in the mashed potatoes, a chicken foot in the chicken salad, a cow bone in the ice cream, and some fish bones in a fileted fish? This question made me queasy, so I moved on to Deb's Neighborhood RR:



Question: The current I in an electrical conductor varies inversely as the resistance R of the conductor. The current is 6 amperes when the resistance is 800 ohms. What is the current when the resistance is 358 ohms?

"Oh! I know! I know!"

Uh-oh, is somebunny a cord-chewer? I suspect Pink also modeled for those bunnies on the hill in that needlework. :-)

The Moon Dance is fabulous, and it has rabbits to increase it's wonderfulness. Not OK would be glass in soup, olive pit in potatoes, Chicken foot in chicken salad, and cow bone in ice cream. OK is pit is olive, boderline OK is bone in filet. How did I do? I am trying to learn Chinese this summer......Pink looks great!

Nice start on your new design! But those questions, ohmygosh, they have my head spinning. And all those yucky food bits, lost my appetite now too.

Wow, Professor Pink, you sure are one smart bunny!

Pink looks *exactly* like my bunny Jack. Mostly like a Florida White, but with a bit of...Lionhead? Jersey Wooly? mixed in. He's fluffy up front and has bangs that cover his eyes, a bit of a beard around the sides, and the rest of his fur is generally longer and, well, woolier, than my other shorthaired buns. Out of curiousity, how big is Pink? Jack is about 6 lbs, perhaps slightly more.
