Nothing wrong with a bit of music in the kitchen. But when you are dining al fresco make sure the neighbours don't have to 'enjoy' your music too.

Unfortunately, those "fade proof easy-to-clean" outdoor fabrics are guaranteed to stick to shorts-clad legs -- ICK! We do not have central air, live in a second floor apartment - and heat still rises. Give me cotton any day. Or, even better, denim. Still summery, tough as nails, comfy as . . . old jeans.
