WHY I BECAME A MAN IN BLACK…

July 12th, 2014

When I had to start making fashion decision for work, I simply put all my suits, shirts and ties in a steady rotation. In the morning I just grabbed the next item in the closet. In the ’90s, when I left the corporate world, I simplified even further and switched to a black jeans and […]

TRUE STORIES, NO. 1, COMING IN SEPTEMBER…

July 4th, 2014

[O]ne week a month was always reserved for a True Story. It was a dose of realism that gave The City its pedigree. No matter how much the strip changed over nearly a quarter century, even after I dropped almost all my original characters and morphed a silly Gen X humor strip into a savage […]

Make sure that the shelf is at right-angles to the fixing-joint (use Rawlplug ‘cavity fixing screws’) Always check the bill for service charge.

Thrifty and thoughtful, she kept every scrap of fabric and every piece of yarn. The cut ends from her warps and weavings, called thrums (there’s a […]
