    Plantar Fasciitis

    I can also attest to the effectiveness of wearing such insoles in your daily foorwear - I struggled for PF for a long time before I tried them and it didn't take long for them to make a 'believer' out of me :D

    I'm Sure I've Linked This Before ...

    A switch to the amped up acoustic side of the street :D. I reckon the amp was on too quiet for this tho' as the raw acoustic sound of the guitar is what you mostly hear ... http://youtu.be/HMEoQ-6sKpo

    I'm Sure I've Linked This Before ...

    Another piece of bluesy improv :). This one is marred at the five minute (ish) point by a huge, stumbling, lapse in concentration as I realised how late at night it was and how much noise I was making :o. http://youtu.be/fhb307UFUuA

    I'm Sure I've Linked This Before ...

    Absolutely so :nods firmly:. A number of players like the 'brighter' sound of the Strat or the mellower sound of a Les Paul but I think the SG is the best 'dirty' blues instrument - for me at least. I wanted one for years once I'd played enough to have an idea of what I liked. That was...

    :smiles: Thank you, Gnarlie and Steve for your kind words and appreciation :bows:. And you certainly know your modern Blues-men, Gnarlie :D.

    A bit of an experiment here ... here's me dusting off my SG after about twenty years of not practising :o. http://youtu.be/NuX3F6Herkg

    Aye, Carol :D. As Monadnock is for you, my dear friend, so is the woodland for me :). OTH? Your mailbox is full, good sir - my reply to your kindhearted PM vanished into the board software with a gentle puff of unsmoke as it bounced :). I thank you greatly for your concern :bows:.

    Any Other RPG Nerds Around?

    I've been an RPG'er since the late 70's when Basic D&D came out. Continued playing pencil and paper style until we all got too grown up with work and families to get a group together often enough :(. Now play LOTRO ... a lot! :o.

    Happy Ten Years to me ....

    I too can only post to say that I have not been around here as long as G. ... but I recall her photo in the front end of the site and, tho' I do not wish to cause her blushes, was very stricken by how beautiful she was :o.

    I'm Sure I've Linked This Before ...

    I really should stop listening to this song on repeat ... even fourteen months on, the tears flow in torrents as this otherwise wonderfully emotive piece emotes me right back to that night of all nights that I wish with all my heart I could make not be. For the words are just far too apt in my...

    One more for good measure: http://youtu.be/VhQ28LnocTA And one to show she has a sense of humour too and acknowledges how the music industry these days unfairly requires its female participants to look as well as sound good {listen for the words as the short clip fades to black :D} ...

    I'm Sure I've Linked This Before ...

    There is more than one reason why this cover of Sweet Home Alabama finds favour in my eyes :D. Mostly (honestly!) it is because Laura, the artist, has shown that if you persist and have the talent then you can get to do what it is that you love. She started a few years back putting vids up...

    I'm not normally one for linking to things that involve money but I thought this was an interesting project and a great use of crowd-funding techniques too :). https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/dark-sarah-cinematic-metal-album-episode-ii#home http://youtu.be/Mleh1YzRMxY

    Curious how you would feel about...

    I see no issue with keeping your rank at all. I dropped out of training for about a year or so with the illness and loss of my wife and am only returning now. I was on the cusp of taking my fourth dan when I stopped and it'll be a good while before I am ready for that again as I work on...

    Not So Friendly Skies!

    We've known in a general sort of way that, one day, we need to get our act together as a species when it comes to dealing with asteroid impact threats ... it seems maybe we should get on with it as we've just been lucky so far! BBC News - Asteroid impact risks 'underappreciated'

    Hmm, is it just a quirk of my machine or are YouTube videos not loading when linked into threads?

    I haven't linked anything in here for quite a while, so here is some excellent culinary advice from one of my most favoured sources ... what? :angel:. I make no pretence that I think Nisha is gorgeous but she also knows what she is talking about :) http://youtu.be/Wq23JuieKGI

    A shame I don't have Photoshop any more, this really needs a bit of selective filtering to bring out the blossom - that was what I was after for the white blossom of the hawthorn was a magical cloud in the shadows cast by the bright sun behind:

    After sunflowers, daffodils were my wifes favourite flower and at the moment they are blooming all over the place. This one is shedding it's light in a scrap piece of land between a railway line and a facility for distributing gas supplies to a now defunct power station:
