Shopping on purpose

It's easier to find something you want when you don't have anything in mind than it is to find something you want when you do have something in mind. I went looking for something interesting in pink to make a scarf for the breast cancer fund raiser. I looked and looked. I've seen so much furry, funky, fuzzy glitz that I just can't get excited about it. The more I looked the less I liked it.

I finally settled for some definitely not glitzy Paris Rainbow from Plymouth Yarns. I'm going to do some kind of variation on the feather and fan pattern. I need to have this done by Feb. 20.

Further evidence that you shouldn't go out shopping looking for something specific. I need some medium grey slacks to go with a navy blazer. How easy should that be? I went to Macy's. They didn't have anything, not even at $115. As if I would pay that much for some slacks I'm probably going to wear once. Men's Wearhouse didn't have anything either. There's a Ross Dress for Less store in the same neighborhood. I don't usually go there because I don't like the atmosphere. They had one pair of slacks in my size. It was the right color and size. The fit is fine. Geoffrey Beene for $11.99. For that kind of money I can put up with a little chaotic ambience.

Common Breast Cancer Myths

The first myth pertaining to this disease is that it only affects women.

Second myth that is associated with this disease is that if one has found a lump during an examination, it is cancer.

Third is that it is solely hereditary

The next myth associated with breast cancer is downright ridiculous. Would you believe, that in this day and age, some individuals still think that breast cancer is contagious?

Conversely, some individuals foolishly believe that breast size determines whether or not one gets cancer.

Finally, another myth that is associated with this disease is that it only affects older people. This is not so. Although the chance of getting breast cancer increases with age, women as young as 18 have been diagnosed with the disease.
