Levi's Jeans

Hmm... ;-)

adMad Trivia Fortnight
That was the last question of the inaugural Trivia Fortnight series. The winner for the day is Shyam!! Congrats to you!!!

The wholesale dealer was indeed Levi Strauss who went into a partnership with Jacob Davis. They innovated on the normal work pants used by the miners by attaching copper rivets to the pockets so that they didnt tear even when there are gold ingots put in it. Of course, you 'll agree, the business turned out to be more lucrative than goldmining itself :-)

Here is an Indian connection to jeans. The earliest known pre-cursor for jeans is the Indian export of a thick cotton cloth, in the 16th century, known as dungaree. Dyed in indigo, it was sold near the Dongarii Fort near Mumbai. Sailors cut it to suit them. So, there's one more thing India can claim to have invented ;-)))

Will be tallying the points for the entire trivia Fortnight series and will be declaring the winners on Monday. Also will be starting our second set of Trivia Fortnight on the same day. So do visit this site start answering right from monday..

Have a great weekend guys...

First of all I want to say great blog! I had a quick question in which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I've had difficulty clearing my mind
in getting my ideas out. I truly do enjoy writing however
it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to be
lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
Any recommendations or tips? Thanks!

Hello this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to know if blogs
use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get advice from someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Howdy, i read your blog occasionally and i own a similar one and i was just wondering if you get a
lot of spam remarks? If so how do you protect against it, any plugin or anything you can advise?

I do not know whether it's just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing issues with your website. It appears like some of the written text in your posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them too? This may be a issue with my internet browser because I've had
this happen previously. Appreciate it

Good day! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?
I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on.
Any suggestions?

Good day! This is kind of off topic but I need some advice from
an established blog. Is it difficult to set up your own blog?

I'm not very techincal but I can figure things out pretty fast. I'm thinking
about creating my own but I'm not sure where to begin. Do you have any tips or suggestions? Thanks
