Next Week- Corrections, Patents, Correspondence & Champers

It's Friday. Time for a beer and a peek at next week

and a laugh. From John Kenney's spoof , "Bloomberg Diaries" in the 1/17/2011 New Yorker.

"Who knew there were four other boroughs? Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, and the other one."

"The only thing I found harder than moving all that snow is making 'Business Week' an interesting magazine."

"More stories. More criticism. Tension. Stress. Can't sleep more than eight hours at a stretch."

We visit Dempsey & Carroll where the passion for ephemera comes alive in an employee's bespoke designs and where envelope linings become...pants?

What's all that legal stuff on your bow tie?

Free champagne - Who gets undressed?

Looking for the new trend - Correctional Chic. See you next week.

New trend? The young brothers have been dressing like convicts for years....and the young white kids follow suit. I never understood the passion to emulate prison garb.

Correctional chic...I thought that was black leather corsets?

Thanks for the laugh - iPlow!

I remember the blizzard of '69 that cost Mayor Lindsay the primary (but not the election).

Red Cap Ale is still being produced here in Waterloo, Ontario.


"Brewed to the original Carling recipe, this Canadian style ale has the same smooth, satisfying taste that made this nostalgic brand so famous in the 50s and 60s."

Just can't hold it any longer...
correctional chic, or Hollywood correctional?
Because really, how many of us reading this have been in the big house?
