Re: Zeitgest - 'spirit of the time'

handbags and shoes

i've been doing most of my shopping at Lands' End, a direct merchandising catalogue shopping thing operating out of Wisconsin, USA. I have never had a problem with them that couldn't be resolved and they back their stuff all the way. Their motto is "Guaranteed. Period" and they really seem...

For what it's worth Musk, I salute your taste. Brains in a woman intimidate lots of men (and other women too). Stick to your guns. A good woman with a good brain is not to be traded for common dime-a-dozen "femininity' females. (tongue-in-cheek for the 'femininity' females). For those who need ...

They are located in Bedok and they deliver to the East Coast and Woodlands. We are lucky t...

Eileen, you can get your purchase shipped to a California address and it will be forwarded to you here, in Singapore. To make it worthwhile, price-wise, buy a whole bunch at a time. There's something called VpostUSA that the Post Office here in Singapore offers. Anyway, get on the website for Singpo...

eating healthy

There used to be a Sizzler's at Suntec, basement level. Of course, Sizzlers is all about salad bars and steaks and grilled stuff.

business guy

Well, if he can afford it, he should find himself a GOOD internist and have a complete workup done to eliminate medical reasons. There's some syndrome or another that includes those symptoms you just described, if I remember correctly... Anyway, if there's nothing medically wrong with him, he'll jus...

creepy crawlies

Wellll.... I was living in the Holland area few years back and one evening as I was about to step into the kitchen... what did I see but a 2-foot-long snake resting on the floor. Yelled for the hubby who's scared stiff of snakes and then we called the cops. The police here seem to be used to disposi...
