the lighter side
It has been said in a number of Hollywood movies that 2012 will be our swan song. If this is the case - in retaining the holiday spirit and erring on the side of the glass is half full – we have put together a list of head-to-toe pre-apocalyptic fashion tips and resolutions to make sure that if we go out, at least it will be in good style.
It’s quite possibly the most important piece of clothing you put on, the present you get to unwrap all year long, and this Valentine's season your best offence in making that special someone more than just a friend. The pièce de résistance I speak of is none other than the manty.

The Ontario English Catholic Teachers Association donated $1,000 to support anti-bullying initiatives. President James Ryan told the Toronto Sun “Certainly the Catholic Church is against bullying.” Did Ratzinger get that memo?
