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).
Luckily, we keep getting the exemptions, like noting that Europeans actually ARE into soccer. Well, we call it football. Also there should be an exemption about the sportswear. Europeans dress up after work, if they are going somewhere, Americans dress down. This means you are likely to meet a European person on the way to work in his fleece jacket, only to meet him out on town in an elegant coat and some snappy shoes after work. There should be warning for American men dating European women: do not get into your casual wear if you have invited her out to dinner! She ll come dressed to kill and if you re not dressed for it, she ll just leave your carcass in the gutter.

Yup, I am with Chris. Our HOA specifically bans hanging laundry, even in the backyard where it can t be seen! Besides, I also don t like the stiffness of line-dried clothing, and it would be my luck that I would forget it outside and some animal would do something horrible to it.

We elected to go for sunset because we are staying in Kapalua and did not want to get up at 2am for sunrise. We spent the day visiting other local attractions and headed up about 3pm. It was very cloudy and rainy going up and we had our doubts about if it was worth the trip. We had downloaded the Gypsy App for Haleakala which is a guided audio tour and it reassured us that the weather would be different at the top and it was! Sunny and clear, although the temp went from 80 down to 63 degrees at the top. The Visitors Center at the base is under construction and the one at the top is open from 10-3:30. There are restrooms at the summit. There are many switch backs and driving can be nerve racking but definitely worth the views.
This is definitely an American thing. You can always spot the americans because of the North Face jackets and the outdoor wear!
Keeping only the clothes that give me a spark of joy has allowed me to relinquish items that I've been keeping out of one kind of guilt or another —that I bought something and never really wore it, because someone else gave it to me, or because it's wasteful to get rid of something that's perfectly 'good.'
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?
I agree with Tina. I would think that line drying vs. electric drying would not be enough to cause World War III on Jillee s very eye opening post. It s true that it saves a lot of money when you line dry clothing, but it is not always possible. Please think about things before you type/say them.
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.
The webbing clothes moth is the most common fabric moth. The adult is gold with reddish-golden hairs on the top of its head. A row of golden hairs fringes its wings, which have a span of about 1/2 inch. Because these moths are weak flyers that aren't attracted to lights, you'll usually find them close to the infested items, such as in a dark area of the closet.
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.b16d0d36c49845317c6af84cfc7bd617
Great site. I know there was a post on dogs, but you just have to do one on horses too. And how people dress up for the Kentucky Derby, and love Secretariat/Barbaro/whatever more than breathing air. I ve never figured this one out. And also, all the readers/posters here who STILL have no idea what SATIRE is, or continually suggest the white people like blogs post, or think this is racist, or think that it s actually talking about every person with white skin in the entire world, do us a favor and just close the web browser before hitting Submit Comment.

That may sound alarming, but it has long been known that our bodies are really a mishmash of many different organisms. Microbes in your gut can produce neurotransmitters that alter your mood some scientists have even proposed that the microbes may sway your appetite , so that you crave their favourite food. An infection of a parasite called Toxoplasma gondii , meanwhile, might just lead you to your death. In nature, the microbe warps rats brains so that they are attracted to cats, which will then offer a cosy home for it to reproduce. But humans can be infected and subjected to the same kind of mind control too: the microbe seems to make someone risky, and increases the chance they will suffer from schizophrenia or suicidal depression. Currently, around a third of British meat carries this parasite, for instance despite the fact an infection could contribute to these mental illnesses. We should stop this, says Kramer.
