Is there any difference between Franciscans and Gray/Grey Friars? I'm working on a translation for them and want to make sure I don't make a blunder due to sheer ignorance of their ways on my part. Thanks! [more inside]

Looking for a paperback with an Alex Grey painting on the cover. Subject is autobiographical, beginning with the author's experience of witnessing his grandfather's senility leading him to conclude that there is no soul. [more inside]

My head hair is brown with wisps of grey at the temples. My facial hair is salt/pepper. I would really like some way of colouring my head hair grey. I know that greying is colour loss which is difficult to mimic. I am not interested in repeated temporary solutions as might be used in theatres. I would like something similar to the semi-permanent hair dyes and going to a hair salon for this would be fine.
Reason? Why not - it's just another colour. Or lack of it.
Upkeep would not be an issue if the result was good. Does such a process / product exist? Thanks.

Hi there -
Some years ago, I was working at a high end outdoor clothing store (think Patagonia, Arc'teryx, Marmot - etc.) and we had a Japanese gentleman who came in 1-2 times a season and usually cleaned us out of one particular style (usually men's Patagonia jackets) - therefore, we came to refer to him as "Gray Market Guy".
I've always been curious, is there any real money to be made in doing this? [more inside]

Is it possible to dye only the few white hairs I have, without also dying my very dark brown hair?

I found my first at age 18. Fast forward fifteen years later, and I'm about 30% grey, which seems to be causing a lot of grief and despair amongst my friends and relations. Fifty percent of those feel fiercely that I should color my hair, the other percentage feeling just as fierce that I leave it alone. Since I have found something that is gentle enough for my tender scalp
, I do have the option of making a change, but I just don't know what to do.
So, should I run away and hide
? Should I be proud
of my whitening locks?
What would you do?
(And, most importantly, to gentlemen ever
make passes at silver-haired lasses?)
