    Just been on a short foray into a foreign culture. As always, it's an eye opener. The exotic leopard skin pattern clothing and thick facial paint. The half understood overheard conversations about alien social rituals. The array of unfamiliar tools and potions, whose use may only be guessed at. The mutual curiosity, but also incomprehension, about each other's life styles and priorities...











    Yup, I've been for my pre-holiday visit to the hairdressers for a cut.

    It's like another world. Where do you people go occasionally and feel you're in an alien culture?

    Has to be listening to the conversations of my sisters - one married, one single - both professionals - money, work, nights out, hair, nails, more nights out..... (late 20's early 30's).......

    My wife feels completely lost when she goes round - a night out...ohhh get one of them on birthdays if we are lucky, and of course having two kids means our lives are on a different planet...

    No Linf, those are just shears. Pinking shears are different.

    My mum trained as a dressmaker for Winsmoor, she had a pair of those in the sewing box at home when I was a kid.
