Denim Blunders, Reflections and General Nonsense.

Recommended Posts

I was listening to some podcast last year... They were discussing the population boom in SF (800 peeps in 1849 to 20,000 in 1850) making food the most expensive commodity (a decent breakfast for 2 was the equivalent of $1200 today) by the 1860's enterprising folks were trying what'evs to source enough eggs to feed the hungry gold-rushing-loons, 'eggers' would go out to the Farallon Islands wearing specially made 'egging-shirts' with massive egg pockets for collecting the eggs of sea birds.
Has ever such a shirt turned up? it would make an insane repro.

A family man to boot. Don’t be heartless, just write back requesting that the bank delivers the full $12.5m in cash to your home address via courier so you can pay it into your account and then transfer half to Jie. All he needs to do is send you his account details and then you’re both sorted!
