About Me

My photo
Split personality. Liking the arts, especially opera, and hockey and Los Toros. I know, I know THAT one is non pc currently. But I can't help it saw some in Spain and got hooked, but good. But on the other hand right now opera and hockey are in the forefront!

Good Old Days?

Talking about  good old days:

Did you know
- that men and women took baths only twice a year (May and October)? When they changed from winter to summer clothing and vice versa, perhaps?
Warhol inspired Wig ?-artandhockey
-  that women kept their hair covered,  while men shaved their heads (because of lice and bugs-hmmm did bugs prefer males ;-) ?) and wore wigs.

- that the wealthy men could afford good wigs made from wool. These wigs could not be washed, of course  so to clean them they would carve out a loaf of bread, put the wig into it, and bake it for 30  minutes. 
The heat would make the wig big and fluffy/ Which is were we get the term 'big wig'!
Now, we often use the term 'here comes the Big Wig' because someone is powerfully wealthy.
Or seems to be  ;-)!

    And so there is this paean to hair by Big Wigged Lady Gaga.....
