Personally, I don't believe in waste on any level, and that was before all the talk about global warming. Maybe I'm just a little too jaded to appreciate these public shows.
sure agree with you !
we still can't understand why shopping centres have to be heated to such an extent that one can't walk wearing winterclothes through the shopping centres here - everyone starts sweating or peeling within a few minutes ; in the summer they are too cold for shorts and short-sleevedd shirts - what gives ?
in the 50's i worked in the office of the local utility - b/a (before air-conditioning) . our boss came from south-africa and around june 15 he would start wearing knee-length shorts and short-sleeved shirts - that was the signal that it was o.k. for us guys to follow his trend .
a few years later i started working for an insurance company : long-sleeeved shirt , tie , jacket ... ... SWEAT , SWEAT , SWEAT .. ...
