These ones and zeros are also known as "binary code," due to having only two values.

Tropical anniversary - Part II
Welcome back to Hawaii!

Feeling nostalgic about turning back the clock
There's just something about a game in Comfrey that gives me a feeling of nostalgia.
Comfrey's gym is actually one of the newer facilities in the area, as it was built after the 1998 tornado.
