Posted:as far as I can tell there isn`t a correct time as per say, there is no rule that says you have been spinning for a month now light up. The correct time is when you feel confident enought to light up, and have the necessary safety precautions around. I have only used abestos rope at the moment ... but apparently kevlar is better, will tell you when my xmas pressie arrives

One fine day in the middle of the night,
Two dead men got up to fight,
Back to back they faced each other,
Drew there swords and Shot each other.

Posted:GlowWormMusic is a personal thing. Alot of people play to a variaty of music. Trance seems to be the most popular, because of it's changing beat and rhythm. I have a taste for slower rocking type melodies. Try everythingtest your moods, and see what you like best.

Posted:ROFL @ Durbs' trampolining (now there's an accronym i've never had cause to use before). Thanks Durbs, you've cheered me up no end.And 210? When did that happen? You were loitering round 100 last I noticed. *shakes head* How soon they grow up and leave the nest..... *sniff*------------------C@ntusDance the dance that plays within the fire and play guitar and the play it inspired. You said you wouldn't leave me not ever, underneath the sky forever.And we're so far from home, no wish to return. there's so much that we have taught and so much we have learned.[This message has been edited by Cantus (edited 20 December 2001).]

Posted:Glad to cheer you up matey. I think it's like the pain barrier. Once I broke 100 it was all downhill. Scarily - alot of it has been useful.Unlike in this thread
