This year marks Penny’s 20th year at COUTURE, and with her signature feminine and intricately detailed jewelry, this prolific designer always gives us something new to look forward to.

  1. OMG Laura!!! how can u translate german after learning it only for 3 yrs!!! thats amazing!! like ive been learning irish for 5yr and im only finally able to write it really well, but the reading and trnstlaaing someone elses work is impossible for me, so i have to say that im very impressed and especially cuz german is WAY more complicated than irish!!!

  2. Interesting little ditty about why the filth in Zuccotti Park is being tolerated . . ."It has not been reported, for instance, that Which is probably why Bloomberg & the NYPD are saying it's up to the park owners WHILE the park owners are saying it's up to the city. No one wants to instigate what they all know will become a spectacle. Can anyone say, "potential clusterfuck?" There is so much more . . .see here:

  3. Yo entre estos dos,me quedo de calle con el Smackdown 2,siempre me ha molado mas.Creo que te comente un dia que un juego de lucha que siempre me ha encantado es el WCW Mayhem de PSX,tienes que hacer una comparacion con estos titulos tambien!Me ha molado mucho como has planteado el combate tio!!

  4. It’s refreshing to hear about the growth of the sleeping giant, Africa. I would argue that, when Americans think of empoverished nations they automatically refer to Africa in general without an understanding of it’s growth path.Thanks,cts

  5. oioi, keda ma näen;)Kui Capsicami/Fastumgeeli seljale määrida palusin, on siiani nõus olnud. Nii et praegu kui möödas on veidi üle 1,5 kuu, on veel kõik OK:p Asi on ilmselt ka selles, et sellise seljaga on *igasugune võimlemine* ju raskendatud
