NEW: August, Time for the Rainbow Swap!!

okay, I'm barely sliding this in under the wire!

Sir Isaac Newton in his early physics experiments decided the colors of the rainbow were Red, Orange, Yellow, Green, Blue, Indigo and Violet. Many of us remember them as ROY G BIV. Are there only seven colors? Newton believed in numerology and thought special numbers governed all natural phenomena. Seven is a very special number. There are seven days in the week, seven openings in our head, seven seas, seven continents and many other important sevens. So, of course he found exactly seven colors. In reality, the rainbow colors merge gradually into one another. Our eyes sort them into groupings. How many colors are in the rainbow? Anywhere from three to, as many as, several thousand. It depends on who is counting and what they believe is there. Funny how what we expect to see is often what we see.

In this swap we're doing the colors of the rainbow: red, orange., yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet. You can send one of each, a couple of each, but try to get as many colors that you can! We're doing a quick turn around to try to get caught up on our months.

1. The total number of seeds is 10 packs and extras if you want. They can be flowers, herbs, or veggies.

2. The sign-up date is until Sept 4th

3. They have to be mailed to me by Sept 8th

4. I want to have them mailed back out by Sept 12th.

5. When you sign up, email me and I"ll send you my address.

6. Bubble envelopes only, return address sticker enclosed and enough stamps to mail them back to you.

Let's see how fast we can do a turn around!

The color for next month is: PINK !! yay

 o
RE: NEW: August, Time for the Rainbow Swap!!

I'm IN! I assume we can send in something that is multi-colored, like a rainbow, or has the name, "Rainbow" in the title also?
Christy


 o
RE: NEW: August, Time for the Rainbow Swap!!

excellent point, Christy! Yes, anything with rainbow in the title or multi-colored.


 o
RE: NEW: August, Time for the Rainbow Swap!!

Goody, because I have a few of them that I specifically saved for this swap!

Did you get to plant any of the black seeds that I sent you Linda? Although I assume it was too late in the season for most of them.

Quick! Name that tune!!!

Somewhere over the rainbow
Way up high,
There's a land that I heard of
Once in a lullaby.
Somewhere over the rainbow
Skies are blue,
And the dreams that you dare to dream
Really do come true.

Someday I'll wish upon a star
And wake up where the clouds are far
Behind me.
Where troubles melt like lemon drops
Away above the chimney tops
That's where you'll find me.

Somewhere over the rainbow
Bluebirds fly.
Birds fly over the rainbow.
Why then, oh why can't I?

Somewhere Over the Rainbow! ...*evil witch voice* Fly my pretties! FLY!


 o
name that tune!!!

Here's another one, see if you know it...

Why are there so many
Songs about rainbows
And what's on the other side
Rainbow's are visions
They're only illusions
And rainbows have nothing to hide
So we've been told and some chose to
Believe it
But I know they're wrong wait and see

Someday we'll find it
The Rainbow Connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me

Who said that every wish
Would be heard and answered
When wished on the morning star
Somebody thought of that
And someone believed it
And look what it's done so far
What's so amazing
That keeps us star gazing
What so we think we might see

Someday we'll find it
That Rainbow Connection
The lovers the dreamers and me

Have you been half asleep
And have you heard voices
I've heard them calling my name
Are these the sweet sounds that called
The young sailors
I think they're one and the same
I've heard it too many times to ignore it
There's something that I'm supposed to be

Someday we'll find it
The Rainbow Connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me

Rainbow Connection... rather appropriate Dan, but waaay to easy! Try this one:

Long distance information, give me Memphis Tennessee
Help me find the party trying to get in touch with me
She could not leave her number, but I know who placed the call
'Cause my uncle took the message and he wrote it on the wall

Help me, information, get in touch with my Marie
She's the only one who'd phone me here from Memphis Tennessee
Her home is on the south side, high up on a ridge
Just a half a mile from the Mississippi Bridge

Help me, information, more than that I cannot add
Only that I miss her and all the fun we had
But we were pulled apart because her mom did not agree
And tore apart our happy home in Memphis Tennessee

Last time I saw Marie she's waving me good-bye
With hurry home drops on her cheek that trickled from her eye
Marie is only six years old, information please
Try to put me through to her in Memphis Tennessee

Memphis Tennessee
Lyrics: Chuck Berry
Music: Chuck Berry

Sung by Jerry Garcia with Mother McCree's Uptown Jug Champions in 1964. He sang a few variations on the Chuck Berry lyrics, which indicate he learnt it from the Jim Kweskin Jug Band version, rather than Chuck Berry's (see for example the third line of the first verse, and the switching of the first two lines of the last two verses):

Long distance information give me Memphis Tennessee
Trying to find the party trying to get in touch with me
You do not have to tell me who it was that made the call
'Cause my uncle took a message and he wrote it on the wall

Operator help me get in touch with my Marie
She's the only one who'd call me from Memphis, Tennessee
Her house is on the south side, high upon the ridge
Just a half a mile from the Mississippi bridge

The last time that I saw her she was waving me good-bye
With hurry home drops on her cheeks that twinkled from her eye
We were pulled apart because her Mom did not agree
Tore apart our happy home in Memphis, Tennessee

Long distance information, more than that I cannot add
Only that I miss her and all the fun we had
Marie is only six years' old, information please
Help me get in touch with her in Memphis Tennessee

These are the "official" Chuck Berry lyrics:
Long distance information give me Memphis Tennessee
Help me find the party trying to get in touch with me
She could not leave a number but I know who placed the call
'Cause my uncle took a message and he wrote it on the wall

Help me information get in touch with my Marie
She's the only one who'd phone me here from Memphis, Tennessee
Her house is on the south side, high upon the ridge
Just a half a mile from the Mississippi bridge

Help me information, more than that I cannot add
Only that I miss her and all the fun we had
But we were pulled apart because her mom did not agree
And tore apart our happy home in Memphis Tennessee

Last time I saw Marie she was waving me good-bye
With hurry home drops on her cheeks that trickled from her eye
Marie is only six years' old, information please
Help me get in touch with her in Memphis Tennessee

RE: NEW: August, Time for the Rainbow Swap!!

Hi Linda!

I've been lurking, but missed this round for the color swap. My friend Christy (bonechickchris)is participating. However, her internet was knocked out over a week ago by a storm which is why you haven't heard from her. She was hoping to have her internet back up yesterday, but so far no emails from her & I haven't seen her post on the forums.

I just wanted to get you up to speed so you knew why she hasn't been around.

Becky

RE: NEW: August, Time for the Rainbow Swap!!

 o
RE: NEW: August, Time for the Rainbow Swap!!

Hello everyone!

You are the FIRST place I am posting after being back online. First of all, I must apologize for my absense. I lost my internet service for over a week, and could not get online, or check emails. Because of that, I could not get Linda's addy up to send the seeds, although I still have them here all ready! LOL!
I have never had this happen before in a swap, and I feel so guilty. I am SO SORRY that I was unable to send my seeds out in a timely fashion. I have never been unable to not do so before.
Please know that I am very sorry again! I cannot believe how much everything changes when your internet is down for only a week or two! LOL! I was lost in so many ways!
I also wanted to thank Becky for spreading the word of my problems. She is awesome!
I hope everyone enjoys their seeds! So sorry I could not enjoy them with you!
Christy


 o
RE: NEW: August, Time for the Rainbow Swap!!

Christy, if you still want to swap, send them and I'll swap out of my stash!


 o
RE: NEW: August, Time for the Rainbow Swap!!

ok! I have mostly veggies though. If I remember correctly doing the black swap, you like flowers. I do not have many flowers. Is it ok that I send veggies? If you cannot use them, I understand. Or atleast let me know what veggies you do plant.
thanks!


 o
RE: NEW: August, Time for the Rainbow Swap!!

veggies are fine,,,,I have more than enough to swap and I did put in a veggie garden this year!


 o
RE: NEW: August, Time for the Rainbow Swap!!
