Prairie Rugs Cotton Area Rugs Red 3 x 5 Foot
The World's Finest Handmade cotton area rugs. They are made exclusively for us in India with total quality control. The best materials are used to make our rugs including 100% cotton (chindi) rags; expensive European dyes; high-grade cotton warp thread. The rags are triple washed after dyeing to prevent color transfer. Prairie rugs are machine washable in cold water. They can also be dry cleaned. Typical cotton rugs are often made with low grades of cotton, printed cloth or cotton blends. The low grade warp thread means the rug may only last for a few seasons. Our handmade cotton rugs are made to last for decades because we use the finest materials.
"Cotton Picking In the Sunny South" In 1908
This is an old postcard depicting black farm laborers picking cotton by hand. Growing cotton is a labor intensive undertaking. The cotton plant, itself, is prickly and can cut up a person's hands. Picking cotton by hand meant a lot of stooping and long hours in the sun with little respite. After cotton is harvested, its seeds must be extracted from the cotton fibers. Prior to the invention of the cotton gin by Eli Whitney, extracting seeds from the fibers was done by hand, greatly reducing the amount of cotton that could be commercially grown and processed.
Here is my cat that my Dad named Joseph Cotton after the actor. My Dad thought the fur was soft like Cotton and thought that naming him after Joseph Cotten would be funny.
Note: This cat went missing a while ago and was probably eaten by coyotes.

In the year 2204, tragedy and terror forced a scientific team to prematurely evacuate Maleiva III. Nineteen years later, a rogue moon hurtling through space is about to obliterate the last opportunity to study this rare, life-supporting planet. With less than three weeks left before the disaster, superluminal pilot Priscilla "Hutch" Hutchins -- the only even remotely qualified professional within lightyears of the ill-fated planet -- must lead a small scientific team to the surface to glean whatever they can about its lifeforms and lost civilizations before time runs out. But catastrophe awaits when they are stranded on this strange and complex world of puzzles and impossibilities. And now Hutch and her people must somehow survive on a hostile world going rapidly mad -- as the clock ticks toward apocalypse for a doomed enigma now called...
Deepsix is concerned with the motivating force that drives all scientists--the quest for truth, for expanding the limits of human knowledge. How much are we willing to risk for that moment of discovery, of knowing what no other soul yet knows? Our time? Our reputations? Our careers? Our lives?
The premise is this: just weeks before the planet Deepsix will be destroyed by a collision with a gas giant, ruins are detected on its surface, suggesting the presence of civilization. The Academy diverts scientists from the nearest spaceship to go down and explore, and they are joined by their century's Ellsworth Toohey: a misogynistic, sanctimonious gadfly who has never before been off of Earth's surface. The party's landers are destroyed in an earthquake induced by the approaching gas giant, so now they must find a way to get off of Deepsix before it is destroyed by the collision. Needless to say, their excavations are placed on the back burner.
The physics describing the space travel and the archeology used to reconstruct the lost culture of Deepsix are interesting and explained well. There is plenty of action and suspense--will the party survive? And the evolving characters and group dynamics are more complex than those usually found in science fiction books, making Deepsix a worthwhile read. --Diana Gitig
