A Colour To Unite

United Nations Emblem

“More than ever before in human history, we share a common destiny. We can master it only if we face it together. And that, my friends, is why we have the United Nations.”  – Kofi Annan.

The Weekend Challenge over on Weekly Prompts is our monthly colour challenge, and this month GC and I have chosen United Nations Blue.

For my Nans Farm response to our challenge, I chose a couple of books from my bookcase. The colours appeared to match perfectly until I got them on the screen!

Starting with the front cover of How To Do Everything I wasted an hour or so reading some of the pages.

  • How to get on TV, why would I want to do that?
  • How to boil pasta – too late,  I’ve already mastered that basic skill, nonetheless, I had a look just in case I’d been doing it wrong all these years.
  • How to play marbles – Child’s play, though I think I’ve probably lost a few!
  • How to jump start a car – I learnt that skill at twenty years old; eventually, I bought a new battery!

  1. Oh wow… United Nations Blue…. Haha, your book of ‘How To Do Everything’…. is the right colour, but it seems to full of wishy washy ‘blue’…. and both books, are not books for me, but the ‘covers are nice colour blue’ !!
    …. I’ve had a busy day, doing submissions and writing a couple of poems, after being out for the afternoon….. one of the poems is going to be called ‘Paradise Beach’, I think that’ll do for your “UN. Blue” prompt…. 😀💙

    1. United Nations Blue is actually listed as a colour, I never knew that until a couple of weeks ago!
      I love books like this, and some of the pages make for amusing reading. The cookery book is an interesting account of how cooking has changed over the years. Thank you, Ivor, I look forward to reading your contribution 🙂


  2. These books look like fun. But I have a feeling heading a ball would not help improve memory. When I saw that color, I immediately wondered what it’s PMS number was–It doesn’t appear to have one, but it does have HEX and RGB numbers for printing. That’s all a little arcane, but it’s where my head went. Hope all is well at the farm!

    1. Yes I noticed the HEX and RGB. I agree with you about heading the ball. It’s now banned in UK schools. The How to Do everything sounded like it was going to an interesting book from one of those book club things that were delivered to the staff room each month, but it was a bit boring. Thank you Lisa 🙂 Yes, all is well, thank you

      1. I’ve got a book that belonged to my grandfather called How to Do Things and it’s fabulous, but essentially practical (how to build a root cellar, construct a rainwater catchment system, etc.) I still use it once in a while.
