Monday Mutant 108: Pearls of Wisdom (total / minesweeper)

In this Pearls of Wisdom puzzle, there are no clues inside the grid. Instead, you are to both draw a loop and place black pearls and white pearls in every cell that could legally contain one. A number represents how many pearls are in cells which share a corner or an edge with the cell containing the number; the loop may not pass through a cell containing a number.
Boy, is it ever Monday. I had prepared a completely different puzzle this past Sunday, but after test-solving it and modifying it, I decided it didn't belong here on the blog. Maybe I'll let the winners of Letting Individuals Think Separately have a look at it. . . :)
