Trends in my world include tight pants…gay. If you can’t fit your pads underneath your pants because they are so tight you shouldn’t wear them. Web marketing…good and bad in my opinion. Good becuase it gives companies a viable way to promote thier products to thier target market. Bad because we are all turning into inverts communicating thru computers vs. good old fashion jaw waggling. I’ll get back to you on a 3rd.
