  3. Only in America

      Swings and roundabouts Other countries don't insist that criminals should have the right to have easy access to guns so this is much less likely to be an  issue.

      Hard to tell if this refers to the quote about Trump or  the quote about Waters...or both...
  5. What made you smile today?

      You might need to be British to get this one. This link may help:    
  6. Hilton Seymour Beckford died recently. Nobody left any online condolences for him so he was probably not well known. I just thought it was time to add an obscure obituary as per the thread title.
  7. I've just posted a silly photo

    Beach body ready baby!

      Got to laugh when royalty is preaching to us about democracy...    
  9. herniated disc

    PS If you do try going barefoot walk around first to get used to it. Walk before you run. I made that mistake. Trying to run as though you're wearing shoes when you're not does not help your back     PPS I'm not a medical doctor and these are just anecdotal practices  that worked for myself and my partner.
  10. herniated disc

    What issues do you get when jogging?   It might be that before you herniated the disc, your back was well able to cope with the impact from running. But if it is still herniated and not fully healed, then the impact (even with proper running shoes) may be enough to effect the herniation. If I stand up and tap myheel on the floor, I can feel it in my back. but not when I tap the ball of my foot. If you;'re running on soft surfaces (it's sandy where we live so we get soft paths) maybe just try jogging barefoot for a stretch and see if you notice  a difference. You'll take more, shorter steps. i also had sore claves when i tried, but I'm not at all fit so you may find it easier.   I had nerve problem when it first occurred   - could not lift my toes properly. Did some phsyio to help the nucleus material back into the annulus and stop touching the nerve. I was very close to having an operation, but it worked OK.  The cobra yoga position helps a lot here. Now I have to work on getting my "core muscles" in shape to prevent it again. It's not perfect as I still have some sensory nerve problems in the leg that ebb and flow depending on how I;ve been treating my back, but motor issues seem OK. Strangely, I don';t get many back pains which is good (not like when  had the herniated disk and couldn't even sit - had to go to the spine clinic lying across the back seat of the car.

  13. herniated disc

    Also in the herniated disc club. Do you use normal running shoes when jogging? This would put the impact in the heel which is quite jarring for the spine. Using barefoot shoes means you run on the ball of your foot which lessens the impact and might be what you need. You can get some fairly cheap but still good brands these days so not too costly to try: This site for instance (also available via Amazon) Takes a little while to get used to it. I'm not a jogger but my wife is and also had back problems, Going barefoot helped her no end. lthough i don't jog, I do wear barefoot shoes most of the time now and haven't had so many back issues.  
  14. What made you laugh today?

      On the one hand I'm sorry that i didn't add an explanation to the original story to save you the embarrassment, but on the other hand I'm not sorry, because your story gave me another good laugh.  Yeah, reading the story again, definitely not sorry...   
  15.   I read it as "everyone in Germany who buys/rents a new home should change their locks" - so advice rather than fact.
