  1. Looks like a great variety of links today. Thank you, Pam. I love the prunes suggestion, and they are so sweet. They solve a mid afternoon craving! If anyone is interested in diving deeper into the fast fashion angle, I recommend The End of Fashion: The Mass Marketing of the Clothing Business Forever.
    Have a lovely day.

  2. Thanks for some great reading; I’ll enjoy every bit of it as I laze my way through day 3 of vacation. 😎

  3. Pamela, Thank you so very much for this news!! I enjoyed it so much more than the nightly news!!!

  4. Thank you for all your hard work finding these informative articles. I look forward to reading them every week. Please keep them coming.

  5. I can understand the allure of fast fashion for the younger generation. While we didn’t have online shopping back in the day, there were plenty of cheap options available in my younger years. Quantity over quality was the motto back then, but with age comes wisdom. I have fewer items but know my clothing will last for a quite some time & will be worn often. I enjoyed the article on pantry organization. Pretty isn’t always practical & as noted, decanting everything takes a lot of time & upkeep. I found the cooking myths quite interesting & have been guilty of some of them myself. Thanks for the great variety of information!

  6. Great collection of News today, Pamela – I bet you have fun finding all the bits and pieces for us.

    I did enjoy the article “Copying our Grandparents”…. The early 70s era was a fun fashion time, wasn’t it. So recognisable in photos; and the wording in the article: “surprisingly both for men and women”, brought to mind that my boyfriend and I would sometimes go out in matching outfits – we both wore white jeans, white skinny-rib turtle-neck sweaters, and green waistcoats with big copper buckles. Fun times. 🙂

    Macy’s warning that people might want to do things like travel ahead of buying stuff was also interesting, and I think it makes sense. We have spent a couple of years of rarely, if at all, spending much discretionary money and have found that we can enjoy life without buying a lot of things that we don’t really need; many of us now find that we enjoy experiences and building memories more that buying stuff we don’t need.

    The article on 3 popular anti-ageing ingredients that don’t do much made me laugh. Coconut oil! Oh how I remember slathering that on when lying outside all weekend in late 60s, early 70s, to get a tan. We were literally frying our skin! I remember a local radio station having “Coppertone turn over tan calls” every quarter hour when they would tell us to turn over and tan the other side. 🙂

    And one last comment, about the longevity article – one of the benefits of an ageing society that I don’t think they mentioned, is the voluntary work done by older people. Things like teaching catch-up reading to school children, running the local 2nd hand shop, doing the admin and book-keeping for a charity of course, but also the unpaid childcare we so often do, which allows the parents to work. I think especially for families who are not well off and can’t afford daycare, that unpaid childcare from grandparents, before and after school, is a life-saver.
