It’s no secret that I am a logophile. I’ve mentioned it in my previous post Shakespeare, English words & Burberry. One immediate thought of seeing the word ‘logo’ is a certain trademark or icon. And in a personal style blog, perhaps you would say ‘a designer labels lover’. Ummm … I am that too.

any major health problems. I can still enjoy life”.
“Well, then”, she replies “I don’t want to be a snoop, but I’ve
got to protect myself: how are you fixed financially?”
“So-so. I’m not rich, but I’m comfortable. You don’t have
to worry about me sponging off you; I can support myself”.
The little old lady blushes, and finally asks her swain –
“And how’s your sex life….”
“Infrequently”, he declares.
The widow ponders this for a moment or so, before asking…
“And is that one word or two?
