Hundreds of hoopers from the Bay Area signed up for workshops, festivities and camaraderie, Nessia Starr said. “It can get pretty intense,” she said, laughing. The yearly trek is complemented by hoop jams each weekend, where an average of 40 to 50 people congregate in a designated park to share their love of the hula hoop. “We’ve formed a pretty big community in the South Bay,” she said. “We are interested in connecting with more people.”.
MANNERED SOUTHERN GAL, DEAR SOUTHERN GAL: Sorry, but I do agree, because the gift would be given with malicious intent, and I’m pretty sure that while Aracely lacks polish, she isn’t stupid, Her problem isn’t that she doesn’t understand good manners because she’s from South America, I have met individuals from South America who are educated, cultured and whose manners are refined, Obviously, Aracely does not come from this kind of background, Only if you could pull it off without sounding catty, the next time printable ballet theme small square favor bag tag she hauls out the excuse for her deplorable manners, you might “offer” to buy her an etiquette book “so she can learn the ways of her adopted country” — but don’t expect her to take you up on it..
