It was the tagline of every cereal commercial, even the ones with cartoons. Lucky would be climbing out of the prying fingers of the greedy children chasing him through keen use of his treasured marshmallows only to somehow fail comically, and have the cereal land perfectly in range of the final shot, with a grapefruit, a glass of orange juice, a glass of milk, toast possibly with grape or strawberry condiments, sometimes even eggs scrambled, and whatever else could be thrown in that would somehow balance out all of the decided nutritional needs at the time the commercial was shot.
|The only problem with "part of this complete breakfast" is that you could only reasonably complete part of it. It's within reasonable assumption that, especially in high school, children were not cutting grapefruit or flipping eggs, but were instead rolling out of bed five minutes before the bus came.|
Let's face it. NASA finds some incredible things.
'Scroll right and gaze through the dusty plane of our Milky Way Galaxy in infrared light. The cosmic panorama is courtesy of the Galactic Legacy Infrared Mid-Plane Survey Extraordinaire (GLIMPSE) project and the Spitzer Space Telescope. The galactic plane itself runs through the middle of the false-color view that spans nine degrees (about 18 full moons) across the southern constellation Norma. Spitzer's infrared cameras see through much of the galaxy's obscuring dust revealing many new star clusters as well as star forming regions (bright white splotches) and hot interstellar hydrogen gas (greenish wisps). The pervasive red clouds are emission from dust and organic molecules, pocked with holes and bubbles blown by energetic outflows from massive stars. Intensely dark patches are regions of dust too dense for even Spitzer's infrared vision to penetrate.'

So you and I both have something in common, (no, not our great looks & charm)... our love for color! But the sad thing is that not everyone knows about COLOURlovers.com and that is what this contest is all about. We're making this the Summer of COLOURlove!
This contest is closed and we will be going over all the entries and deciding our winners in the coming week. Even though the contest is over, you can still let others know about COLOURlovers.com.
You know why you love this site and you do a better job of explaining it to other creative people than we do... So we want you to reach out to the groups, schools, clubs, gangs you roll with and tell them why they should be a member here at COLOURlovers. It could be writing a blog entry about the site... hand knitting a COLOURlovers scarf and wearing it around... throwing a COLOURlovers party... naming your next child COLOURlover... putting up COLOURlovers posters around your town... Use your imagination and take photos of anything you can easily link us to. Post your photos someplace like www.Flickr.com and link us to your creative expression.
Some of us were born into the internet on a T-1. Some of us still call Dell for help. Some of us built our own way into this place. Some of us get calls from relatives about how to fix the internet. Regardless of how, we all stepped in here at some point.
Today, I'm asking you to show me just that.
How do you get online?
Hair colouring is a style choice as old as four-thousand years ago, as Assyrian herbals have been found dating back to 2177 BC. Seemingly because women feared going grey before 'their time,' hair colouring has carried itself into our time for a number of reasons.
A method to remove the yellowness of grey hair popularised in the 1950s was such that applying too much would turn the hair blue, giving way to the trend of 'blue haired old ladies,' or 'blue hairs.' Blue hair is one of the few colours that don't occur naturally among humans and other mammals, yet it surfaced so often because of an eagerness to look younger and the debacle of grey-removing blue rinse.
Knitters truly are color lovers. These aren't your average socks... these wonderfully colorful knit socks show a wide variety of the endless possibilities for crafty knitters.

A Collection of 20 Colorful Knit Socks
by tua bella
Started 2/10/07, completed 3/6/07, but I wasn't working very much on them. The first sock went fast. I dawdled on the second.
The yarn is from KnitPicks, and was dyed specially for me by my awesome Secret Pal, Rachel. The stripes turned out perfectly!
The month of June marks the 100th Anniversary of Colour Film being widely available in the form of specialised plated designed by the Lumiere brothers in Lyons, France. In the shadow of many unsuccessful attempts to accomplish colour in common hands, the Lumiere product, called Autochrome plates, were turned out of their factories in numbers barely ducking below six-thousand a day.
It seems like anytime computers or video games are mentioned, somebody ends up talking about bits. Both processors and colour palettes can be measured this way, but what it means is less often received rather than an obscure idea of where in time something might have come from in time when someone says, for example, 8-bit.
The general rule of colour bits is the number of variations in a colour palette according to how many bits it is. In 4-bit colour, you have four base colours (greyscale, red, green, blue) and the variations of those colours are sixteen, as is four times four, and the palette becomes the series of bars below.
The world has seen thousands of artists and millions of great pieces of art, but we chose just a handful of pieces of art from some of greatest masters of painting to show a little of how they were inspired by color... or perhaps, how they inspire us with color.
Your kidneys & liver are where the magic happens. Pee is made up of water and dissolved waste material from what you have been drinking and eating. It also includes material the body wants to eliminate, like dead blood cells and other things.
Urochrome is a yellow pigment that comes from the processing of dead blood cells in the liver. The liver protects your body from harmful substances by screening out the stuff in your blood that flows directly from your stomach and intestines.
