Wow, isn&#39;t this too amazing? Tell us more, <a href=\"http://blog.pixiehill.com\" target=\"_blank\">Nichola</a>!</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">&quot;<strong id=\"docs-internal-guid-86c0f01a-56f3-1bfa-5a01-a8ae344506e1\" style=\"font-weight: normal;\">I’ve been meaning to expand my fleet of amazing flying machines so and when I created the template for my Old School Rocket, I knew this project was in my future. The shape of the rocket body can easily double as a zepplin. The addition of a paper boat, trims, chains, gears and propellers turns the rocket into a fabulous sky pirate vessel. The images and colours of <a href=\"http://www.g45papers.com/typography-category\" style=\"text-decoration: none;\">Typography</a> lend themselves perfectly to steampunk projects so it was a natural choice. The ‘rope’ used to attach the boat to the zeppelin is a sturdy gardening wire that has a natural covering. Hot glued firmly into place, these ‘ropes’ keep everything exactly where it should be without causing too much stress to the paper. Copper, brass and bronze accents are in keeping with the steampunk feel. A bit of metallic acrylic paint can transform chipboard with very little effort. Distress with an old ink pad and you can add years to those new ‘metal’ gears and cogs. I added a couple of small light bulbs which should easily available (I got mine from the grocery store!) and a snip of tea stained cheesecloth to the inside of the boat. Finally I glued an eye pin in the top so that my little vessel can hang proudly and fight off any lightning thieves.</strong>&quot; ~Nichola</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01b7c6dc1ff9970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39;

Wow, isn&#39;t this too amazing? Tell us more, <a href=\"http://blog.pixiehill.com\" target=\"_blank\">Nichola</a>!</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-family: book antiqua,palatino; font-size: 10pt;\">&quot;<strong id=\"docs-internal-guid-86c0f01a-56f3-1bfa-5a01-a8ae344506e1\" style=\"font-weight: normal;\">I’ve been meaning to expand my fleet of amazing flying machines so and when I created the template for my Old School Rocket, I knew this project was in my future. The shape of the rocket body can easily double as a zepplin. The addition of a paper boat, trims, chains, gears and propellers turns the rocket into a fabulous sky pirate vessel. The images and colours of <a href=\"http://www.g45papers.com/typography-category\" style=\"text-decoration: none;\">Typography</a> lend themselves perfectly to steampunk projects so it was a natural choice. The ‘rope’ used to attach the boat to the zeppelin is a sturdy gardening wire that has a natural covering. Hot glued firmly into place, these ‘ropes’ keep everything exactly where it should be without causing too much stress to the paper. Copper, brass and bronze accents are in keeping with the steampunk feel. A bit of metallic acrylic paint can transform chipboard with very little effort. Distress with an old ink pad and you can add years to those new ‘metal’ gears and cogs. I added a couple of small light bulbs which should easily available (I got mine from the grocery store!) and a snip of tea stained cheesecloth to the inside of the boat. Finally I glued an eye pin in the top so that my little vessel can hang proudly and fight off any lightning thieves.</strong>&quot; ~Nichola</span></p>\r\n<p style=\"text-align: center;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://g45papers.typepad.com/.a/6a011570479cdc970b01b7c6dc1ff9970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39;

The produce guy talked me into trying them out, and ever since then, I&#39;ve loved eating and incorporating them into different dishes. I feel like I missed out on so much by not trying things! I don&#39;t even consider myself a picky eater. I just thought I didn&#39;t like certain things for some weird reason.

I love chopping veggies. At the studio, we have the heaviest cast iron skillet. I think it weighs close to 50 lbs (maybe a little more.) It works, but I&#39;d prefer a lighter weight medium to large nonstick pan. (No offense, Emma!) I started out by getting the skillet heated with a bit of butter (you can also use olive or coconut oil). Then it was chopping time, starting with the denser veggies like the beet, celery root, potatoes, and carrots. They were chopped into smaller than bite size pieces. &#0160;I probably cut about a cup to a cup and half&#39;s worth of each. I threw the veggies in as I cut them. The pan was about medium to high heat at this point. After stirring the veggies in with the butter and letting them fry for a few minutes, I started on the rest of the veggies (cilantro and onion and sunflower seeds). I save the garlic for very last.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e17674d970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img alt=\"Root cake (click for more info)    \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e17674d970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e17674d970d-800wi\" title=\"Root cake (click for more info)    \" /></span></a>Stir fry the veggies on medium to high heat till they are almost cooked through. Then turn the heat way down. I don&#39;t want them overcooking while the eggs cook, and with the lower heat, it can take close to 10-15 minutes. When the celery starts warming up, it emits a very unique savory smell.

Before then, I had never tried (or even considered) eating beets and never even heard of celery root. The produce guy talked me into trying them out, and ever since then, I&#39;ve loved eating and incorporating them into different dishes. I feel like I missed out on so much by not trying things! I don&#39;t even consider myself a picky eater. I just thought I didn&#39;t like certain things for some weird reason. I only found out a couple years ago that I like peanut butter...what was I doing with my life? :/</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">Since then I have tried to try everything and anything that I might initially think wouldn&#39;t be very good. By branching out, I&#39;m able to discover that I like most everything and that there are some amazing flavors out there! Like peanut butter.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">One of my favorite dishes that&#39;s become a staple around our house is called root cake. It was a dish that I messed with when I first discovered celery root and fell in love with beets. It&#39;s a great hearty weekend morning breakfast (or brunch) dish.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e1763c4970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img alt=\"Root cake (click for more info) \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e1763c4970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e1763c4970d-800wi\" title=\"Root cake (click for more info) \" /></span></a>Root Cake, serves 3-4</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">1 medium celery root</span><br /><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">1 medium beet</span><br /><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">2-3 smaller carrots</span><br /><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">2-3 smallish red potatoes (or 1 sweet potato)</span><br /><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">1 red onion</span><br /><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">1 bunch of cilantro</span><br /><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">2-3 fresh garlic cloves</span><br /><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">about 1/4 cup sunflower seeds</span><br /><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">5-6 eggs</span><br /><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">feta for the top (feta&#39;s betta)</span><br /><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\">salt, pepper, cayenne, and cumin to taste</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e1763da970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img alt=\"Root cake - chopping (click for more info) \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e1763da970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e1763da970d-800wi\" title=\"Root cake - chopping (click for more info) \" /></span></a>Alright, so this dish is super easy, and (I think) fun to make. I love chopping veggies. At the studio, we have the heaviest cast iron skillet. I think it weighs close to 50 lbs (maybe a little more.) It works, but I&#39;d prefer a lighter weight medium to large nonstick pan. (No offense, Emma!) I started out by getting the skillet heated with a bit of butter (you can also use olive or coconut oil). Then it was chopping time, starting with the denser veggies like the beet, celery root, potatoes, and carrots. They were chopped into smaller than bite size pieces. &#0160;I probably cut about a cup to a cup and half&#39;s worth of each. I threw the veggies in as I cut them. The pan was about medium to high heat at this point. After stirring the veggies in with the butter and letting them fry for a few minutes, I started on the rest of the veggies (cilantro and onion and sunflower seeds). I save the garlic for very last.&#0160;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e17674d970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img alt=\"Root cake (click for more info)    \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e17674d970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e17674d970d-800wi\" title=\"Root cake (click for more info)    \" /></span></a>Stir fry the veggies on medium to high heat till they are almost cooked through. Then turn the heat way down. I don&#39;t want them overcooking while the eggs cook, and with the lower heat, it can take close to 10-15 minutes. When the celery starts warming up, it emits a very unique savory smell. So good!</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6e1709e970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img alt=\"Root cake - pouring eggs (click for more info) \" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6e1709e970b image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6e1709e970b-800wi\" title=\"Root cake - pouring eggs (click for more info) \" /></span></a>As soon as the veggies are ready, I flatten them out in the pan.

But if you don&#39;t know how to hardwire a light, it&#39;s not such a simple act, is it? I&#39;ve spent all of my adult life calling my dad whenever I&#39;ve wanted a light fixture changed. It&#39;s gotten to the point that I could never move away, or I would be doomed to live with ugly lights for the rest of my days. Or else call an electrician, I guess. But why would I do that when I&#39;m perfectly capable of learning how to hardwire a light myself?</p>\r\n<p>I had three lights that needed changed during our recent renovations, and instead of calling Dad to hardwire them for me, I asked him if he could walk me through the process. You guys, it&#39;s so easy— I don&#39;t know why I thought it was so scary! It&#39;s a good skill to keep in your mental tool box (aka brain), so read on to find out how simple it is to hardwire a light without calling an electrician.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e0de893970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"How to Safely Hardwire a Light- a great skill to learn!\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e0de893970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e0de893970d-800wi\" title=\"How to Safely Hardwire a Light- a great skill to learn!\" /></a>When we first moved into our house, I thought I&#39;d probably replace our kitchen light right away with the light from <a href=\"http://makingniceinthemidwest.com/2013/07/02/dreams-of-bedrooms-past/\" target=\"_blank\">our old bedroom</a> at my brother&#39;s house, but I never got around to it. Pretty soon, the kitchen light became invisible to me. I never really noticed it until we began renovating our kitchen, when it suddenly stood out against all of the changes we were making. So as things were wrapping up with our renovation, we swapped out the light that came with the house for the light from my old bedroom.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d061d322970c-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"How to Safely Hardwire a Light- a great skill to learn!\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d061d322970c image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d061d322970c-800wi\" title=\"How to Safely Hardwire a Light- a great skill to learn!\" /></a><strong>Supplies:<br /></strong>-wire stripper<br />-wire nuts*<br />-optional: <a href=\"http://amzn.to/1trwlAl\" target=\"_blank\">voltage detector<br /></a>-screw driver (You may need both a flat head and a Phillips head depending on the hardware for your light.)</p>\r\n<p><strong>*Wire Nuts</strong></p>\r\n<p>Wire nuts are for finishing the connection of wires from the light to the wires coming out of the electrical box in the ceiling. You can select the type of nut for your project by looking at the box of nuts and seeing what wire groupings they&#39;re rated for. These yellow nuts are rated for 1-3 12 gauge wires, or 600 volts maximum.&#0160;You are probably only going to be joining two 12 gauge or two 14 gauge wires with the nuts.</p>\r\n<p><strong>Wire Gauges &amp; Safety Warning</strong></p>\r\n<p>If you&#39;re working with a 15 amp circuit, the wiring will probably be 14 gauge, though a thicker 12 gauge wire is acceptable as well.&#0160;<strong>If you&#39;re working on a 20 amp circuit, you need to be sure the wires are 12 gauge</strong>, which is thicker than 14 gauge wire.&#0160;If you&#39;re not sure about the amps on the circuit, just check your breaker box— the number should be right next to the switch. Don&#39;t assume you&#39;re working with 12 gauge wire just because they&#39;re on a 20 amp circuit. Use scrap pieces of partially stripped wire to compare and verify what gauge wire you&#39;re working with.</p>\r\n<p>Older homes often use 20 amp circuits, which may be wired with 14 gauge wires. This is a fire hazard and will not pass inspection. Rather than upgrading all of the wiring on that circuit to 12 gauge, you can just downgrade the circuit to 15 amps to meet code standards.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e0e2959970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"How to Safely Hardwire a Light- a great skill to learn!\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e0e2959970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e0e2959970d-800wi\" title=\"How to Safely Hardwire a Light- a great skill to learn!\" /></a><strong>Step One:</strong> Turn off the breaker for the circuit housing your light. To make sure you have the right circuit, turn on the light. Flip the switch on the breaker box, and if the light turns off, you&#39;re good to go. This would be a good time to label the breaker if you haven&#39;t yet so you don&#39;t have to guess in the future.</p>\r\n<p><strong>Step Two:</strong> Remove the existing light from the ceiling by twisting bolts and pulling it away. Remove the old wire nuts and untwist the wires. Loosen the grounding bolt and remove the grounding wire. My house doesn&#39;t have a grounding wire coming from the electrical box, so I only had to remove the grounding wire from the light. Finally, remove the screws that are securing the metal plate and remove both the screws and the plate.</p>\r\n<p><strong>Step Three:</strong> Determine which of the two wires is the hot wire. This is the one that will shock you if it&#39;s live. Usually black wires are hot wires while white ones are neutral, but my house just had red wires. We flipped the breaker back on and used a <a href=\"http://amzn.to/1trwlAl\" target=\"_blank\">voltage detector</a> to determine which wire was hot (it lights up red around the hot wire), then flipped off the breaker before continuing.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e0e0d7e970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"How to Safely Hardwire a Light- a great skill to learn!\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e0e0d7e970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e0e0d7e970d-800wi\" title=\"How to Safely Hardwire a Light- a great skill to learn!\" /></a><strong>Step Four:</strong> Decide how much slack you want in your hanging chord if it&#39;s a pendant light. This can be adjusted later. To set our chord length, we used a strain relief that was tightened by screws. Some lights just use a plastic piece that looks like an s-hook.</p>\r\n<p><strong>Step Five:</strong> Mount the light fixture&#39;s metal plate to the electrical box with the mounting screws. This is what keeps the light securely in place. Make sure the wires from the electrical box are coming out from one side of the metal plate.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e0e1178970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"How to Safely Hardwire a Light- a great skill to learn!\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e0e1178970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e0e1178970d-800wi\" title=\"How to Safely Hardwire a Light- a great skill to learn!\" /></a><strong>Step Six:</strong> This can be done at any point in the process. You&#39;ll need to strip away the plastic sleeve of the wires to expose enough wire to twist together. Wire strippers have a series of holes in them for various gauges of wire which prevents the cutters from touching the copper part— you only want to cut away the plastic.</p>\r\n<p><strong>Step Seven:</strong> Twist together the neutral wire from the electrical box and the neutral wire from the lamp&#39;s chord. Do the same with the hot wire. Like I mentioned in step three, usually neutral wires are white and hot wires are black, but that&#39;s not always the case, so <strong>it&#39;s a good idea to verify the hot wire with a voltage detector</strong>.</p>\r\n<p>If you have a grounding wire in your electrical box, connect it along with the lamp&#39;s grounding wire to the grounding bolt as shown in image two.</p>\r\n<p><img alt=\"How to Safely Hardwire a Light- a great skill to learn!\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d06200d7970c image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d06200d7970c-800wi\" title=\"How to Safely Hardwire a Light- a great skill to learn!\" /><strong>Step Eight:</strong> Twist wire nuts onto the wire connection. Then shove the wires and excess lamp chord back into the electrical box.</p>\r\n<p><strong>Step Nine:</strong> Twist the light fixture into the metal plate using whatever connectors are provided with your light fixture. Mine just twisted into place at the base of the chord.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6d8298c970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"How to Safely Hardwire a Light- a great skill to learn!\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6d8298c970b image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6d8298c970b-800wi\" title=\"How to Safely Hardwire a Light- a great skill to learn!\" /></a>Wiring a light is a great skill for any DIYer to have, but if you&#39;re uncomfortable doing this yourself, you should invite someone skilled to observe you the first time.

Make sure the wires from the electrical box are coming out from one side of the metal plate.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e0e1178970d-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"How to Safely Hardwire a Light- a great skill to learn!\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e0e1178970d image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e0e1178970d-800wi\" title=\"How to Safely Hardwire a Light- a great skill to learn!\" /></a><strong>Step Six:</strong> This can be done at any point in the process. You&#39;ll need to strip away the plastic sleeve of the wires to expose enough wire to twist together. Wire strippers have a series of holes in them for various gauges of wire which prevents the cutters from touching the copper part— you only want to cut away the plastic.</p>\r\n<p><strong>Step Seven:</strong> Twist together the neutral wire from the electrical box and the neutral wire from the lamp&#39;s chord. Do the same with the hot wire. Like I mentioned in step three, usually neutral wires are white and hot wires are black, but that&#39;s not always the case, so <strong>it&#39;s a good idea to verify the hot wire with a voltage detector</strong>.</p>\r\n<p>If you have a grounding wire in your electrical box, connect it along with the lamp&#39;s grounding wire to the grounding bolt as shown in image two.</p>\r\n<p><img alt=\"How to Safely Hardwire a Light- a great skill to learn!\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d06200d7970c image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d06200d7970c-800wi\" title=\"How to Safely Hardwire a Light- a great skill to learn!\" /><strong>Step Eight:</strong> Twist wire nuts onto the wire connection. Then shove the wires and excess lamp chord back into the electrical box.</p>\r\n<p><strong>Step Nine:</strong> Twist the light fixture into the metal plate using whatever connectors are provided with your light fixture. Mine just twisted into place at the base of the chord.</p>\r\n<p><a class=\"asset-img-link\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6d8298c970b-popup\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, &#39;_blank&#39;, &#39;width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0&#39; ); return false\" style=\"display: inline;\"><img alt=\"How to Safely Hardwire a Light- a great skill to learn!\" border=\"0\" class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6d8298c970b image-full img-responsive\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6d8298c970b-800wi\" title=\"How to Safely Hardwire a Light- a great skill to learn!\" /></a>Wiring a light is a great skill for any DIYer to have, but if you&#39;re uncomfortable doing this yourself, you should invite someone skilled to observe you the first time.

They're still putting up points if they're in the red zone or not. And if they can continue doing it, and continue to win doing it, that's not really a problem now, is it? And the Eagles still have plenty of room to improve upon, does Evans really not think they will improve?

         "content": "<p>September 18, 2014<br />By Roberto Siewczynski<br /><br />Hispanic shoppers are doing a lot of their grocery buying in the mass market and club shopping channels, according to a recent quantitative survey. National manufacturers who do a big business with mass market players like Walmart and Target, as well as club retailers like Costco and Sam&#39;s Club, need to keep this top of mind when targeting Hispanic audiences — particularly if they wish to ramp up sales and achieve economies of scale within this sector.<br /><br />The survey, which polled more than 3,800 Hispanic shoppers and more than 500 non-Hispanic shoppers, was designed to understand more clearly what these shoppers are thinking when they shop for groceries. Where do Latinos shop? How much do they spend? What do they buy? We sifted the information via an acculturation screen and benchmarked it against general market shoppers. <br /><br />Hispanics are perceived as a niche market, but a large one, comprising some 17% of the U.S. population. Granted, there are cities (e.g., Los Angeles, Miami, Dallas) where these numbers skew much higher — some refer to these as &quot;minority majority markets&quot; — but if you look at this purely through a national lens, it comprises a cultural segment that still qualifies as a niche. <br /><br />The “pain points” for Hispanic shopper marketers are diseconomies of scale, i.e., factors that add cost. The issue is simple: with a smaller population (and corresponding budgets), yet a similar fixed cost structure, Hispanic shopper marketing programs on a per store cost basis can sometimes be significantly higher than in the general market. When you start looking at 17% of a large national retailer like Walmart, however, suddenly those are quite impressive numbers. It&#39;s no longer 17% of a market that represents perhaps 10% of your volume but 17% of your total volume. That&#39;s huge.<br /><br />Moreover, if you know that Hispanic shoppers over-index in your store (79% of Hispanics shopped at Walmart vs. 73% of non-Hispanics, according to the survey), then you should invest more of your dollars developing targeted Hispanic programs. In hard numbers, if you assume that 17% of Walmart&#39;s 4,281 U.S. stores have a majority of foot traffic that is Hispanic, that percentage works out to more than 700 stores, which is by no means a small shopper program. By comparison, a chain like Publix has 1,080 stores. <br /><br />If you are a large manufacturer that seeks scale with Hispanic shoppers, think first about national chains. Think about developing custom programming in Hispanic stores. Start by looking at data from these stores (e.g., by category, brand, SKU) to determine if there are notable differences that call for alternative strategies.<br /><br />Manufacturers may decide that rather than national shopping marketing campaigns, they prefer a more regional, focused approach that reflects retailer priorities, private label preferences, even weather patterns. The survey revealed that while mass market and club channels are the big sticks, when judged by specific regions the playing field tilts and grocery opportunities gain new significance. The reasons are partly structural, i.e., many retailers have regional dominance, which enables them to capture more shopper trips and dollars.<br /><br />Beyond structural factors, there is an overlooked reason why grocery chains gain importance with Hispanics at the local level: deal-seeking. As Hispanics become less acculturated, they shop more for deals and consequently make more store visits. The survey found that Hispanics visit nearly three stores a week on average vs. 2.3 store visits a week by non-Hispanics. The survey also revealed a trend that pivots on shopping for perishables vs. non-perishables. With acculturation, the behavior of buying perishables at one store and non-perishables at another is more pronounced. A surprising 63% of non-acculturated Hispanics agreed that they tend to buy perishables at one store and non-perishables at another, more than double the 30% of general market shoppers who do the same.<br /><br />Grocery buying among Hispanic shoppers at mass market and club channels is far more substantial than many shopper marketers realize. It&#39;s a phenomenon that&#39;s sure to continue to grow. If you are planning campaigns targeting this segment, enticing economies of scale can be achieved by ensuring that some combination of Walmart, Target, Costco, and Sam&#39;s Club are high on your shopping list.<br /><br />Source: <a href=\"http://www.mediapost.com/publications/article/234434/mass-market-and-club-channels-are-high-on-hispanic.html\" target=\"_self\">Media Post</a></p>",

         "content": "<p>I have one last story to share with you.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>This trilogy of articles on spiritual warfare has a price. I have asked the Lord to protect my family and me. So today, I ask you to pray over my writing and speaking to result in two things; that the Lord, Jesus, is honored and that His Saints are empowered to fight the forces of evil.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Also, I acknowledge that sharing these accounts of the spiritual realm may be troublesome to those who have never encountered what I describe. However, I began this blog over four years ago with a single purpose: To help others who are married to unbelievers. That is why I am compelled to share this story.</p>\r\n<p>It took me years to learn how to fight for my unsaved husband. After too many years and too many tears, I finally found peace with my faith and my spouse through the power of Jesus Christ alive in my heart. I don’t want one other person to live in wasted years of unhappiness and frustration when I can share the truth I know from sitting at the feet of Jesus.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>It was Christ, Himself who brought healing to my heart and marriage. I want to share what Jesus has taught me so that you can also thrive in your marriage.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>In addition, I know there are many of you who are married to a spouse who dwells smack in the middle of the enemy camp and the spiritual warfare I describe is very real in your life (I have read your comments from last week).</p>\r\n<p>Oh, how I wish I had known what I know now back in the early years. No one was teaching me. No one talked about these battles with the enemy and in fact, most Christians shy away from talking about doing battle with the enemy because it’s so controversial. But, I answer to Jesus and after serious prayer and four years of writing, He told me to share so that I can help someone else fight for their spouse.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Thank you for praying for me. Now let’s get started.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>____&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>When I speak at conferences, the audience is always interested in how my husband feels about my ministry efforts. I think that’s a great question and I always tell them this:&#0160;</p>\r\n<blockquote>\r\n<p>Today I’m going to share with you some stories from my marriage, some struggles, triumphs and the fantastic journey in which God has set in motion. I want you to know that my husband enthusiastically supports my writing and speaking. He has given me his full permission to share our lives.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>In fact, on the day I was preparing to start my blog, I went to my husband and explained what I was doing. I told him that I planned to write about our married life but wouldn’t do it if he objected. I also promised him that if I wrote something I thought might bother him. I would bring it to him to read first so he would be okay with my posting it. (Every time I have, he has always approved- I love that man)&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>After my explanation and seeking his approval, he looked at me and said this, “Honey, if you can help one other couple to NOT go through what we have been through.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Then GO FOR IT.”&#0160;</p>\r\n</blockquote>\r\n<p>Amazing!&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>I still giggle as I remember this. I giggle and delight at how in spite of my husband’s lack of acknowledging God, God uses my husband to do His work on earth. It’s a blast to watch it all unfold.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>With that said, I want to share my account of a time when I was praying for my husband.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Several, several years ago, I began to pray differently for my husband’s salvation. I was doing some study about breaking spiritual bondage. I was learning that the devil’s lies hold so many people hostage, unable to “hear” to real truth of the gift of salvation. I wanted to pray and fight the bondage that was holding my husband captive to the lie that God did not exist.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>I would lay awake at night and place my hand on my husband’s back as he slept. I would pray for him. Something similar to this:&#0160;</p>\r\n<blockquote>\r\n<p><em>Lord, right now I ask that you would break the bondage of lies my husband has around him. In the name of Jesus, I bind the enemy that speaks lies to my husband and that is fighting to keep him away from You. Lord, I ask that you would protect my husband from evil that is fighting to retain its claim over him. Lord, dispatch angels to walk with my man wherever he is goes to protect him. Free his mind and heart. Open his spiritual eyes that he can know the truth and let the truth set him free. In the powerful, life-changing name of Jesus our Redeemer, Amen.&#0160;</em></p>\r\n</blockquote>\r\n<p>My prayer was drawn from a couple different passages, which I was studying. Such as <em>John 8:32 32Then you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.&quot;&#0160;</em></p>\r\n<p>I think I prayed like this for many, many months, perhaps even a few years. I can’t really recall. I just know I would pray every night with my hand lightly resting upon him as he slept.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Well several years ago, I recall it was during the summer months because we have a door in our bedroom where you can step out onto the back patio. I remember that on this particular night we left the door open to allow the cool evening breezes to come in. We kept the screen door shut to keep the bugs out but the air could still flow.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>It was in the middle of the night and pitch dark. I don&#39;t know the time of night but I came immediately awake. I sat up in bed. I couldn’t see anything but I felt something had just come through the screen door into our bedroom. I felt alarmed in my spirit. &#0160;</p>\r\n<p>I couldn&#39;t see anything but I sensed it and……It was seething.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>I could feel its hatred and anger. In a split second, I understood that I was facing an evil spirit who had a claim on my husband. It was seething mad that I was praying it’s claim away. I don’t know how to explain this but to say I just knew….. I knew this thing had “owned” my husband for a very long time.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>What I mean by this is, I think it was assigned to my husband to keep him from finding the truth. And for years had been successful. However, my prayers were making a difference and it arrived to have it out with me.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Oh my gosh, I started praying like crazy. Out loud and with fervor, I prayed, binding it by the power and blood of Jesus Christ. I spoke and said it no longer had a hold over my husband that Jesus was the truth. I prayed scriptures but I can’t remember today which ones. I also don’t know for how long I prayed like this. It could have been only a minute or many minutes.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>All during this pivotal battle, my husband never woke. Don’t ask me why. I don’t know how loud I was speaking; I was just doing what I knew to do. Pray with the authority of my Lord, Jesus.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Then suddenly I sensed “felt” it turn and with what I would describe as a great rush like wind, it fled in a hurry back through the screen door.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>It has never been back.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Whew!&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>This encounter happened years ago, before I began writing, but now as I have had time to pray and consider it all, I didn’t realize at the time how important that night was.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Since that time, my husband has changed.  I didn’t notice at first but now I can clearly see that my husband’s hostility toward matters of faith is mostly gone. He doesn’t bristle when I talk about God. In fact, he has moved significantly toward the cross ever since. Although he has yet to cross the line and make Jesus Lord of his life, our marriage now thrives in peace.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>I’m convinced, as a woman, married to a man who doesn’t believe, our prayers for our unsaved spouse are of eternal and monumental importance.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>We are on the front lines.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>At the end of this life nothing, NOTHING, else matters but the salvation of people and a life lived to glorify the Son.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Period. The end.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Don’t grow weary. When you are weak, write me. I will pray beside you. I know how utterly important our battle prayers are for the cause of Christ.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Be blessed, Lynn</p>",

         "renderedContent": "<p>I have one last story to share with you.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>This trilogy of articles on spiritual warfare has a price. I have asked the Lord to protect my family and me. So today, I ask you to pray over my writing and speaking to result in two things; that the Lord, Jesus, is honored and that His Saints are empowered to fight the forces of evil.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Also, I acknowledge that sharing these accounts of the spiritual realm may be troublesome to those who have never encountered what I describe. However, I began this blog over four years ago with a single purpose: To help others who are married to unbelievers. That is why I am compelled to share this story.</p>\r\n<p>It took me years to learn how to fight for my unsaved husband. After too many years and too many tears, I finally found peace with my faith and my spouse through the power of Jesus Christ alive in my heart. I don’t want one other person to live in wasted years of unhappiness and frustration when I can share the truth I know from sitting at the feet of Jesus.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>It was Christ, Himself who brought healing to my heart and marriage. I want to share what Jesus has taught me so that you can also thrive in your marriage.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>In addition, I know there are many of you who are married to a spouse who dwells smack in the middle of the enemy camp and the spiritual warfare I describe is very real in your life (I have read your comments from last week).</p>\r\n<p>Oh, how I wish I had known what I know now back in the early years. No one was teaching me. No one talked about these battles with the enemy and in fact, most Christians shy away from talking about doing battle with the enemy because it’s so controversial. But, I answer to Jesus and after serious prayer and four years of writing, He told me to share so that I can help someone else fight for their spouse.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Thank you for praying for me. Now let’s get started.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>____&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>When I speak at conferences, the audience is always interested in how my husband feels about my ministry efforts. I think that’s a great question and I always tell them this:&#0160;</p>\r\n<blockquote>\r\n<p>Today I’m going to share with you some stories from my marriage, some struggles, triumphs and the fantastic journey in which God has set in motion. I want you to know that my husband enthusiastically supports my writing and speaking. He has given me his full permission to share our lives.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>In fact, on the day I was preparing to start my blog, I went to my husband and explained what I was doing. I told him that I planned to write about our married life but wouldn’t do it if he objected. I also promised him that if I wrote something I thought might bother him. I would bring it to him to read first so he would be okay with my posting it. (Every time I have, he has always approved- I love that man)&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>After my explanation and seeking his approval, he looked at me and said this, “Honey, if you can help one other couple to NOT go through what we have been through.&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>Then GO FOR IT.”&#0160;</p>\r\n</blockquote>\r\n<p>Amazing!&#0160;</p>\r\n<p>I still giggle as I remember this.

Insert your hook into the loop and pull on the shorter strand of yarn to secure it on your hook.

Yarn over again and pull it through the loop of yarn on the hook. That's 2 ch st. If a pattern says to \"ch 12\", you would do this 12 times. You can count each stitch in the chain easily. Now you've made a foundation chain!&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" style=\"display: inline;\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, '_blank', 'width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0' ); return false\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e160b1d970d-popup\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e160b1d970d image-full img-responsive\" title=\"Holly Neufeld Crochet Basics\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e160b1d970d-800wi\" alt=\"Holly Neufeld Crochet Basics\" border=\"0\" /></span></a>Here's a fun tip: use a jar to hold your ball of yarn in place while you're crocheting! I like to wind my skeins of yarn into balls before I start a project, and the jar keeps it from rolling away. You can also use bowls and other dishes that are specifically made for this purpose. Just choose something bigger than your ball of yarn and it will be able to roll around freely as you work.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" style=\"display: inline;\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, '_blank', 'width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0' ); return false\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d06a141d970c-popup\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d06a141d970c image-full img-responsive\" title=\"Use a jar to keep ball of yarn in place while crocheting!\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d06a141d970c-800wi\" alt=\"Use a jar to keep ball of yarn in place while crocheting!\" border=\"0\" /></span></a></span><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" style=\"display: inline;\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, '_blank', 'width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0' ); return false\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6e01a3f970b-popup\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6e01a3f970b image-full img-responsive\" title=\"Use a jar to keep ball of yarn in place while crocheting!\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6e01a3f970b-800wi\" alt=\"Use a jar to keep ball of yarn in place while crocheting!\" border=\"0\" /></span></a>Keep practicing these simple steps, and then you'll be ready to learn some stitches! - Holly</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-size: 8pt; background-color: #ffffff;\">Credits // Author: Holly Neufeld, Photography: Sarah Rhodes, Video and Music: Jeremy Larson.</span></p>",

You've made a slip knot!</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><style>.embed-container { position: relative; padding-bottom: 56.25%; height: 0; overflow: hidden; max-width: 100%; height: auto; } .embed-container iframe, .embed-container object, .embed-container embed { position: absolute; top: 0; left: 0; width: 100%; height: 100%; }</style><div class='embed-container'><iframe src='http://www.youtube.com/embed/uwyPBQfCOq8' frameborder='0' allowfullscreen></iframe></div></span>\r\n<p><br /><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"> <a class=\"asset-img-link\" style=\"display: inline;\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, '_blank', 'width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0' ); return false\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e160b03970d-popup\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e160b03970d image-full img-responsive\" title=\"Holly Neufeld Crochet Basics\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e160b03970d-800wi\" alt=\"Holly Neufeld Crochet Basics\" border=\"0\" /></span></a>To make a chain stitch, hook your yarn over your left-hand ring finger, and with your right-hand middle finger and thumb holding the loop on the hook, wrap the yarn over the hook end (yarn over/yo) and pull it through the loop of yarn on the hook. &nbsp;That's your first chain stitch (ch st). Yarn over again and pull it through the loop of yarn on the hook. That's 2 ch st. If a pattern says to \"ch 12\", you would do this 12 times. You can count each stitch in the chain easily. Now you've made a foundation chain!&nbsp;</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" style=\"display: inline;\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, '_blank', 'width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0' ); return false\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e160b1d970d-popup\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e160b1d970d image-full img-responsive\" title=\"Holly Neufeld Crochet Basics\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201a73e160b1d970d-800wi\" alt=\"Holly Neufeld Crochet Basics\" border=\"0\" /></span></a>Here's a fun tip: use a jar to hold your ball of yarn in place while you're crocheting! I like to wind my skeins of yarn into balls before I start a project, and the jar keeps it from rolling away. You can also use bowls and other dishes that are specifically made for this purpose. Just choose something bigger than your ball of yarn and it will be able to roll around freely as you work.</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" style=\"display: inline;\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, '_blank', 'width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0' ); return false\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d06a141d970c-popup\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d06a141d970c image-full img-responsive\" title=\"Use a jar to keep ball of yarn in place while crocheting!\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b8d06a141d970c-800wi\" alt=\"Use a jar to keep ball of yarn in place while crocheting!\" border=\"0\" /></span></a></span><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><a class=\"asset-img-link\" style=\"display: inline;\" onclick=\"window.open( this.href, '_blank', 'width=640,height=480,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,toolbar=no,directories=no,location=no,menubar=no,status=no,left=0,top=0' ); return false\" href=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6e01a3f970b-popup\"><span style=\"background-color: #ffffff;\"><img class=\"asset  asset-image at-xid-6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6e01a3f970b image-full img-responsive\" title=\"Use a jar to keep ball of yarn in place while crocheting!\" src=\"http://abeautifulmess.typepad.com/.a/6a00d8358081ff69e201b7c6e01a3f970b-800wi\" alt=\"Use a jar to keep ball of yarn in place while crocheting!\" border=\"0\" /></span></a>Keep practicing these simple steps, and then you'll be ready to learn some stitches! - Holly</span></p>\r\n<p><span style=\"font-size: 8pt; background-color: #ffffff;\">Credits // Author: Holly Neufeld, Photography: Sarah Rhodes, Video and Music: Jeremy Larson.</span></p>",
