Just a short entry and free advert. for Coolibar, makers of sun protective clothing, sun hats, and UV protection swim wear. They're having an end of summer sale. Please check out head coverings for men, women and children, as well as a variety of modest, sun protective active and swim wear. Even a protective face drape. Such a neat thing that sun protection equals modest dress sometimes - they'll make more business that way, I think. :)
