Look at the stars Look how they shine for you And everything you do Yeah they were all yellow
the opposite of yellow is purple
According to surveys in Europe, Canada, and the United States, yellow is the color people most often associate with amusement, gentleness, humor, and spontaneity, but also with duplicity, envy, jealousy, avarice, and, in the U.S., with cowardice
In Iran it has connotations of pallor/sickness, but also wisdom and connection. In China and many Asian countries, it is seen as the color of happiness, glory, harmony and wisdom.
The word yellow comes from the Old English geolu, geolwe
In Ancient Egypt, yellow was associated with gold, which was considered to be imperishable, eternal and indestructible. The skin and bones of the gods were believed to be made of gold. The Egyptians used yellow extensively in tomb paintings; they usually used either yellow ochre or the brilliant orpiment, though it was made of arsenic and was highly toxic. A small paintbox with orpiment pigment was found in the tomb of King Tutankhamun. Men were always shown with brown faces, women with yellow ochre or gold faces.
The ancient Romans used yellow in their paintings to represent gold and also in skin tones. It is found frequently in the murals of Pompeii.
According to color psychology, people with the yellow personality are perfectionists; they have high expectations and big plans. … The yellow personality type is fun and exciting to be around. Their sophisticated manners combined with a great sense of humor makes them an excellent company. (wikipedia)

It’s been a good day! I am feeling much better, but not 100% yet. Within the next few days I will be back to my old self and be able to smell/taste things like a normal human being! Love, love, love the new washer – much quieter than the old one (the old one was one of the first HE (high efficiency) washers. The delivery guy told me that they put concrete blocks in the first machines to help stabilize. I can believe it ’cause when that thing spun, it made quite a racket!!

Can someone update me on what's offensive today? It's hard to keep up!
Psalm 23 (KJV) The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. 3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
Be thankful for the thorns and thistles which keep you from being in love with this world. ~ Charles Spurgeon
