    There’s a lot of sun today.

    I don't think I've ever heard that one, but I think people would know what you mean.

    Feelings for a cake

    If I can't use "crave" then I don't know what to say. That would be most natural for me, and I don't know what's in second place.

    I wasn't born at the time?

    One, it's not vague. Two, yes you can.

    Yes. That's perfectly good.

    To improve the environment means improving/to improve our life.

    Something either makes sense or it doesn't.

    I can’t make it at 8

    More natural, I think, would be: Would you like to have a picnic in the park? Or: How about having a picnic in the park? Those are both quite informal, but so is the situation.

    Lest he tear it

    I don't think so. But it seems that Tdol has a different opinion.

    I think it means they're prepared for whatever happens.

    when must I use "of" to link two nouns

    You get information from the sensors. They tell you what to do. You could say they transmit data from one place to another. However, a human being is needed to interpret the data. That's who does the important work.

    In the moment/in the moments/in moment

    You can use "try" and "think" in the same sentence. For example: "I tried to think of his name, but I couldn't." I wouldn't advise somebody, however, to try to think.

    The money helps the students with new clothes, pens and pencils.

    I consider that one optional. In other words, I don't care if it's there or not.
