Good Friday morning to you!
 

What color are the clothes you are wearing right now? Your answer might say more about you than you think. According to yourtango.com, the color you wear the most has great power over your mood, your attitude and how you are perceived by others.

If your wardrobe consists of a lot of the color black, you may be seen as “powerful.” But beware, the article says, as too much black can be overpowering.

White clothing can help you “look clean and innocent” and imply that you're an “organized and detail-oriented person.”

People either love or hate purple, according to the article. If you want “to appear regal” or “show uniqueness and artistic creativity,” then purple is a great choice.

Orange is “a playful color.” If you wear too much orange, though, you may not be taken seriously.

Blue, one of the most common clothing colors, represents “honesty and trustworthiness.” The article says this is why hospital employees, bank logos and law enforcement uniforms are typically blue.

When you want to appear all-natural, green is said to be the way to go. The article also states that shades of green make a big difference. Deep green can “signify envy and greed," and Army green can “make you appear rigid.”

Red is a color of “action, power and passion” and shows that you want to be “recognized when you walk into a room.”

Pink is another color of passion but shows “that you're vulnerable, and, of course, girly.” I assume my “salmon” shirts fall in this category.

Keep in mind that this is all one person’s opinion (Tegan Connor, brand manager for Neverland Store), but check out the full article here and have some fun with this today.

As always, thanks for reading.

Des Moines artist Jordan Weber has been awarded the first Harvard LOEB/Harvard ArtLab joint Fellowship. He will be moving to Cambridge/Boston for 10 months to research and prototype at MIT and Harvard. That will then be implemented at the Pulitzer Arts Foundation in St. Louis in 2022. — Jim Duncan

Your Clear Mortgage forecast from Jason Parkin

Thunderstorms that fired in the western Dakotas and sandhills of Nebraska look to roll into Iowa this morning, bringing much-needed rain. We may also see a few more storms in parts of central Iowa early Saturday morning. Unfortunately those are the only two rain chances that fall into an otherwise hot and dry forecast. It does appear that some relief from the heat may come late next week.

Hastie collects history along with cribbage boards

By Rachel Harrington

Mike Hastie learned to play the game of cribbage in his fraternity his freshman year at Simpson College. “I have loved to play it ever since,” he says. “I played a lot with my roommate. My wife has played since college as well.”

At the time, Hastie didn’t realize that both his grandpa and his uncle were long-time cribbage players.

“It just never made it into my family,” he remarks.

Snapshots

Blacksmiths work by heating pieces of wrought iron or steel until the metal becomes soft enough for shaping with hand tools, such as a hammer, an anvil and a chisel. Color is important for indicating the temperature and workability of the metal. As iron heats to higher temperatures, it first glows red, then orange, yellow, and finally white. The ideal heat for most forging is the bright yellow-orange color that indicates forging heat. Living History Farms, Urbandale. — Photo by Paul Houston
