There was definitly a certain irony about reading that blog post yesterday, and my interest to bring it here. When I think of these non-geology types that dress this way I am forced to think of places like Boulder and Bozeman, for example.  

No, they wear these clothes not to be ready at a moment s notice to head out to the real country, they wear these clothes as a form of conspicuous consumption. They are saying: see, I don t need to dress in old haut bourgeois weekend casual clothes, because I go out to Aspen (or Park City, or some other far off trendy place) and this is what I would be wearing if I were there. (Never mind that I only go once a season, or once every two years, I want you to think that it was just some huge deal at work that has kept me in NYC, so I am wearing my ski jacket to dinner on the Upper West Side, or I have on my fleece vest, even though I have just been to an indoor gym).

Also, when driving, white people love putting their turn signal on about a half mile before the turn.

Gabby came out purple and limp. Doctors stabilised her in the neonatal intensive care unit and then began a battery of tests. Within days the Williamses knew their new baby had lost the genetic lottery. Her brain s frontal lobe was smooth, lacking the folds and grooves that allow neurons to pack in tightly. Her optic nerve, which runs between the eyes and the brain, was atrophied, which would probably leave her blind. She had two heart defects. Her tiny fists couldn t be pried open. She had a cleft palate and an abnormal swallowing reflex, which meant she had to be fed through a tube in her nose. They started trying to prepare us that she probably wouldn t come home with us, John says. Their family priest came by to baptise her.

MEXICO - The Mexico Public Safety Department said Thursday it's looking for three suspects after finding some of their clothing at the scene of a burglary.  

Hey! Someone in my Facebook group shared this site with us so I came to check it out. I m definitely loving the information.

A little TLC helps our clothes look good and last longer - from finding time to 'have-a-go' at getting out a stain to following the washing instructions on the label.

I love this blog clander . I still want to meet you. I am flying to LAX on March 30 for a four nights of eating well and museums with my daughter and her film maker bf, then dash to Mammoth to ski a couple days than return to Bangor Maine airport which is 150 miles south of our island.

In the great city where he lived, life was always gay. Everyday many strangers came to town, and among them one day came twoswindlers. They let it be known they were weavers, and they saidthey could weave the most magnificent fabrics imaginable. Notonly were their colors and patterns uncommonly fine, but clothesmade of this cloth had a wonderful way of becoming invisible toanyone who was unfit for his office, or who was unusuallystupid.

 
This is definitely an American thing. You can always spot the americans because of the North Face jackets and the outdoor wear!  

You will be invoiced in Ringgit, the final BND price will depend on the exchange rate applied by your credit card/bank

OMG! This is sooo funny! I m in seattle and no one knows how to dress anymore. We make fun of those women who wear velour track suits but is it any better to go to Starbucks all decked out in REI?

This is very true. However being a person from the mountains in the west and now living in the city on the east. I don t feel as foolish wearing my ski jacket and hat when people are using umbrellas to cover themselves from the snow that never even sticks to the ground. You can spot the posers, but then again maybe I look foolish to them. But I still don t have to carry an umbrealla around wherever I go. FACE!

In August 2009, MaryMargret Williams saw a photo of Brooke on the cover of People magazine, just below the headline Heartbreaking mystery: The 16-year-old baby . She thought Brooke sounded a lot like Gabby, so contacted Walker.

 
I love outdoorsy people who think that nobody else could possibly be outdoorsy and thus should not be wearing outdoor gear. The worst culprits of this are people who work inside at gear shops and have superiority complexes  

School leaders say some of the children are going to class with their shoes duct-taped together or wearing clothes which no longer fit them.

Even once they had collected the material, the team still faced the extraordinary task of building the genetic sequence. Given the enormous volume of data, the task was akin to shredding hundreds of thousands of copies of Moby Dick and then pasting the individual sentences back together into a meaningful order.  

A big advantage of making your own clothes is that you can choose from some amazing (and novelty) fabrics - including ones which you can use to pay homage to your favourite movie/tv program/actor etc - in fact you'll find kid's duvet covers are a great source of weird and wonderful fabrics!

If your computer box has important identification material printed on the side, cut that portion from the box or take a photo. The only valid reason to keep tech boxes is if you frequently upgrade your devices and sell your used items. In that case, keeping the original packaging will probably increase their value.

In a StoryCorps animation, Patrick Haggerty remembers the remarkable advice he got from his dairy farmer dad.

If you know how to sew you can make your own clothes and do clothing alterations. With the availability of inexpensive clothes and the cost of fabric, you may not save a lot of money by sewing trousers, for example. The big advantage to sewing your own clothes is that you can let your creativity go wild, creating your own styles and fabric combinations. A learn-to-sew DVD can teach you how to make clothing that fits great and shows your individuality.dresses for less

A striking picture of von Gloeden’s Il Grande Fauno (the Great Faun), circa 1895. Where other photographs of this model posing in character appear innocent, detached stern expressions interspersed with the occasional friendly smile, in this there’s a distinct leaning toward celebrating the sensuality and eroticism of both his character, and his proudly displayed body, bare under hot bright sun.

A second artist’s reference image of this tall and well-toned model posing for Jacques de Lalaing, some time in the 1880s or 1890s. This print has been neatly drawn over with a grid pattern, which proves its former usefulness to the artist, even if it does distract somewhat from the aesthetic appeal of the shot, and the model’s good looks!

An early 20th century photograph, striking in its simplicity with an unfussy, unpretentious pose, and no studio props to distract the eye and detract from the fine physique and charming handsome face of this unknown model.

An alternate version of this photograph by Guglielmo Plüschow, showing much crisper light than the close-up - as they were taken outdoors, not with studio lighting, maybe we see here the difference between full sun and the softening shade of a cloud....

A fourth glorious, gorgeous photograph of this breathtakingly handsome man, captured in the full bloom of his beauty by von Gloeden. His face is pure masculine perfection, this perhaps the loveliest of all his portraits.

Portraits create such a powerful sense of a moment captured and kept, a fine face made everlasting; as we look upon this strong-featured anonymous Italian, know he was photographed by Vincenzo Galdi a little over a hundred years ago.

Providing an artist with the pose reference for an equestrian portrait or sculpture, maybe even a single figure within a cavalry battle scene, this model sits very upright and poised - though as a rider myself I cannot help but notice that his stirrups are adjusted far too long!
