Posted:Believe me kiddo, I spend a damn sight longer practicing than I do on the PC. (Its just that I rarely get access to a PC over the weekend and find it much more fun than doing work during the week !!)As for the rest.. I shouldnt worry yourself too much.. just get out there and spin!! ------------------Kato

Posted:I can't spin anymore(for the moment that is). I find that I am spinning for hours and hours on end and my shoulder muscles are just out of control in pain. God do I love spinning. I couldn't sleep last night because all I could think about how I will put on a fire show. Once I learn all the moves and about fire that is.

Posted:BLOODY ENGLISH WEATHER!!!!!If it wasnt sooooo BLOODY cold Id be twirling my little cotton pickin' socks off!!!Better to get the arms in training for the summer season by the action of lifting a pint pot (preferably full) to and from the mouth. Does wonders for the stregnth and stamina but doesnt help co-ordination much!!Seriously though Im out at every opportunity!Gruff

Posted:I think a lot of people are at work and instead of working are using the connection to surf HoP. Not that there's anything worng with that, as long as they do it on their lunchbreaks like me (yeah right).But that's why a lot of us are on this site instead of practicing, it's easier to look like you are doing work in front of a screen than standing inthe parking lot flinging flaming fuel onto the bosses car...

Posted:What I really like to do is spin in front of the TV.
But I keep hitting the light shades.
It's a damn shame.
Also most of the living room is full of disassembled motorbike bits.
It's not fair, I really don't think I am getting equal space rights.
I'm too kind and generous, that's my problem. (Or one of them!)
