Can I teach myself to cross country ski?

I didn't do any prep for my weekend at Lake Tahoe. I had planned to do a cross country lesson while my daughter does a snowboard lesson, but somehow I misunderstood and the place where I reserved her lesson doesn't offer cross country lessons. [more inside]

super-easy faux cross stitch image generator?

A friend said something hilarious, and I would like to create an image that looks like a cross-stitch of that saying, with different colors, decorative border, etc. I've found things where you could generate a pattern for a true cross-stitch, but they don't really work for this. Anything like this out there?

What is this cross-based symbol?

What is this cross-based symbol, as if from a coat of arms or a flag or banner? The image I've linked to is an approximate representation roughly drawn without skill from memory. The closest I've found is the flag of (the country) Georgia, but there are some differences: (1) Georgia's is a lighter red, (2) it's missing the end caps on the main cross, (3) its minor crosses have curves, and (4) it's overall elongated horizontally rather than squared.

Entry level jobs for FEMA, the red cross or an ESL position in South America?

I want to travel, one way I have heard to do this is through organizations such as FEMA and the red cross. I am graduating with a Bachelors in English in 3 weeks and am 24 years old. There are no entry level jobs that I saw available on their websites, am I doing something wrong? Does anyone know where I can find entry level positions?

Quality Individual Health Insurance in NY?

I need to buy (gack!) my own health insurance. I'm in New York state. I'm looking for very good coverage. Would rather pay more for high-quality, flexible, non-nitpicky coverage (if such a thing exists), and then economize by opting for high deductibles. I once lived in CT for a short while, and loved Anthem Blue Cross. But I've heard horror stories about Empire Blue Cross in NY. What other options are out there?

Need to colocate servers in the US without Customary interference.

Cross Country Boots Flaking Out

I have a pair of old 75mm Nordic Norm cross country ski boots. They're leather on the lower half and 'foamy' synthetic on the upper half. The problem is, the 'foamy' synthetic is supposed to be covered with some kinda of vinyl, but like most older xc boots, it seems that the coating has flaked off of my boots. Is there anyway I can make this foamy section weatherproof? Can I stop continued flaking?

Roadside non-crosses?

An article in my local newspaper on the removal of roadside crosses (and having just read Carl Hiassen's "Skinny Dip," in which a minor character collects roadside crosses and replants them in his backyard) made me wonder if non-Christians put up non-cross roadside memorials, and if there are websites with examples.

Papal Purple, people?

I used to live in Montreal, and heard somewhere that on certain nights the cross on top of the mountain would flash various colours (I never saw this happen myself). Rumour had it that this was for bulb-testing purposes, and that the city lit up the cross with different colours when certain rare and important events took place. Supposedly, one of these events was the death of a pope, which was purported to merit a purple cross. Is the cross purple right now? Is it really outfitted with various coloured bulbs, or is this all wild hearsay? Maybe someone was just pulling my leg. [more inside]
