JEANS – BEST TROUSERS EVER
Jeans have become the most popular trousers in the world. There are many reasons for their popularity. Some people say jeans look nice. Others wear them because they are fashionable. The simplest explanation, however, is that they are cheap and comfortable.
Jeans were first made for American farmers. In the beginning rich people did not wear them but that has changed. Nowadays almost everybody has at least one pair in their wardrobe. Jeans are worn by teenagers, elderly people, factory workers and celebrities. Even presidents and managers wear them from time to time.
When designers plan a type of jeans, they first think about the pattern and the number and sizes of pockets. Then workers put all the pieces of cloth together. The sewing is the most important process. Many different kinds of sewing machines are used.

Peggy McAlpine is the oldest person who did a paraglide tandem flight. She is 104 years old and it was not her first time. The brave woman did it before to celebrate her 100th birthday. However, the record was taken away from her by Mary Hardison from the USA who did the jump when she was 101. So Peggy decided to win her record back.
“I enjoyed every minute of it,” she said. “It was better than the first time.”
Peggy has two children, four grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. She has always loved heights and all her life she has climbed mountains. But she tried extreme sports quite late in life. When she was 80 years old, her grandchildren asked her to go bungee jumping with them. She agreed and loved it. Some years later she left Scotland and decided to live in Cyprus. When she lived there, she became interested in paragliding.
