Shopping All the Time: Consumers Want it all Now!
Topic: HollywoodRetroFashion

The doleful side of consumer glutonny is that ninety-five percent of those afflicted can ill afford to be so greedy. Sure they make decent incomes, but they spend twice as much as they earn. To maintain appearances, they must eat in all the right restaurants such as The Cheesecake Factory, order all the right foods (whole foods, organic foods), drink the right wines (California ones), wear the right clothes, and arrive in the right car. Are you not tired of all these life's pressure moments?

An industry has been created to ease the oppression that comes with living beyond your means. If you are not carrying the more than $115 needed to acquire this handbag or Gucci outfit, then you can always charge it. Stores have created a thriving credit business within their retail business to suit your needs. Banks have designed a plastic card that will give you a $15,000 line of credit on which to hang yourself and subject yourself to a rat race. But do not commit the mistake or faux-pas of presenting the wrong color of plastic for your purchases: a true consumer glutton carries only gold or platinum cards. Using plastic is not like spending money, after all, and at the end of each month you have only that tiny little payment to make. So what if there is nineteen-percent interest added to the unpaid balance? You have the goods, the merchandise you wanted so badly.

If your career is cutting into your shopping time, or if you feel that a retailer's twelve-hour day is too limiting, a special service has been designed for you. Besides the New Home Shopping Guide, a televised shopping service, which allows you to sit in your own living room and view merchandise as it is canoized by a team of consumer evangelists, you now have the power of online shopping in the palm of your hands. Should we say it is available through your finger tips. No longer do you have to dial the phone and give one of your many credit card numbers, you can enter these numbers into the online form, select how soon you want the products and which carrier to bring it to your door step.

Well, folks, this is no more the 1960s. We have to adapt to change. It can only get better from now on.

Salsa and Tortilla are Taking on Ketchup and Wonder Bread
Topic: Atlanta Georgia Promdress

When was the last time you bought salsa instead of ketchup? When was the last time you told your spouse not to forget to purchase tortilla for you? As more and more Hispanics are opening businesses in various parts of the country, they are spreading the latin taste wherever they go. In places such as California, New York, New Mexico, Texas and North and South Carolinas and Georgia, Hispanics can be found in the health care and service sectors. As far as taste is concerned, Mexican food has become as popular as chinese food. According to a recent survey conducted by ABC, "Salsa now outsells ketchup, Barrera notes, and tortillas outsell Wonder Bread. And that buying clout will only continue to grow as the population expands: Hispanics are expected to spend $1 trillion in the United States by 2010. Since Hispanics make up 14 percent of the overall U.S. population, they're also a growing part of the consumer market, which has helped fuel some of these new businesses." Another revalation of the survey is that Hispanics are not job-takers. They are also job creators. "The majority of these businesses are small, self-employed operations — only 13 percent have employees besides the owner. The greatest percentage, roughly three in 10, are in construction or other service sectors, such as repair and maintenance. There are also sizable numbers of Hispanic-owned firms in the fields of health care, retail trade (which includes mom-and-pop stores) and transportation, according to Census figures."

Getting Ready for the Quinceanera & Prom Night
Topic: Texas PromQuincenera Shop

Beautiful quinceanera
Way before you wear this elegant dress,
You had already rehearsed in your head
The mystique and value of a real woman
Now you are wearing the most sparkling prom dress
Just remember that you have the gloves, tiara
And parasol to prove that you are a true woman
Long after the dance is over, long after
The music stops, the merengue drums are silent
You will beam with pride, chica quincenera
So will your parents too!
You are celebrating the passage from nina
to mujer with great Latin style and family
