I used to buy a lot of vinyl in the early 90s. My Prince albums are some of the only ones I kept when I moved to the UK. These are some of my most prized possessions and even more so now with Prince gone.

The album in the middle bottom is one of my favourites. I was so overjoyed to find it and I still love it. The sleeve may be in bad condition but the album is perfect. I love all of them though and would hate for any of them to need replacing.

I grew up on vinyl and loved it.

In July last year I quit smoking and took up vaping. In that time I've not had a single cigarette. I am determined to not slide down that slippery slope.

There were some obvious changes after quitting like having an easier time breathing. I walk between the train station and work. This is a 12 minute walk for me as I have a naturally fast pace from walking with men over 6 ft tall for so many years. The distance is .85 miles. On that walk I no longer get sweaty and have laboured breathing. At the train station there is a set of about 24 steps; I usually take these 2 at a time climbing up them. I now not only don't get winded doing this, but I no longer need to use the hand rail to help "pull" myself up the stairs.

Every smoker knows how bad smoking is for them. It's information that is shoved down our throats from day one. Don't kid yourself that smokers need to be warned and preached at, they know the dangers. When you've been smoking since you were a teenager, like myself, and have always been in pretty good shape you may not realise just how good your body works until you stop.

I don't consider myself a non smoker. That just feels too self righteous to me. I'm a vaper.

To me Bowie is sacred. No one is allowed to sing his music in my eyes. And yet Michael Stipe has clearly sang this with such love and care that it shows so clearly.

+Girl Rebuilt I think you'll want to hear this if you can.

I agree. That was extremely moving. Wiping away tears. He sand with the passion and respect this song deserves. This is wonderful. Thank you.

I'm running a little behind for #ThrowbackThursday , but here you are anyhow.

Been married for 15 years to +James Desborough and I don't regret a moment of it. This is from our wedding day. I did indeed wear black, I am a Goth after all.

(Yes I'm aware we got married on St.Patrick's Day. It's my fault and an accident)

The sun is getting brighter in the mornings. It's still cold, but the clear brightness is blinding when it's 8am and I'd rather be in bed.

Because even after 15 years it still entertains me to listen to the English swearing.

God help me. Why do I even bother arguing with someone who clearly doesn't understand what research means? If the data from a study is too small of a sample size to reach a new conclusion and facts then it's not useful. Sure it's interesting, but that doesn't make it true.

FFS.

The other day a gif of molten salt being poured into water and exploding came across my stream via +Carrie Canup  . After the very smart +Robert Hansen did a little explaining I set out to find the full video this came from. 

SO I found it and the awesome is mega. Have a watch; it's a great little science lesson and great fun.

I should've mentioned that any Apple thing isn't an option.

+Beate Mieslinger  If I wanted to use a phone then I'd use my Sony Z5. As mentioned though, I won't use a phone. Phones aren't made for playing music being a phone.

+Aaron Gordon I'll have a look at sandisk.
