Why do so many people diss the ponch? I only wish I had some money so I could buy a whole lot before they get rare again. The are, actually, extremely comfortable. Some even have pockets. They suit everyone. What's not to like?
(Granted, the itchy ones and the open-knit 'doily' style should probably be avoided.)
I have to admit to hugely enjoying news footage of the incredibly spectacular explosion in the Danish fireworks factory. Too bad about the tragedy element...And that underwater volcano eruption in Iceland, whooo! Astonishing.
