+Robert McKenzie Yes, it is a strange sensation after miles of boating and being sat in a decent bit of water either side of you to suddenly have literally nothing at your side! Yes you can walk it too... even the path is extremely narrow!

Good job mate.  It's a good start.  As you said, it's usually better to go slow, lose it over time and get use to the new eating habits.  Pretty much everyone that ever does a crash diet to shed quickly only ends up failing miserably in the long run and has a downright miserable existence during the diet .. better to slowly change the habits and experiment with what works and what doesn't.   You'll be into that camo mankini in time! 

I've never tried wheatgrass myself but given how most people I've seen drink the stuff get a screwed up face during and after the ingestion of it, I think I'll give it a miss LOL

Wow .. what's disgusting is that we have such a problem with homeless people, not enough places to put them, etc and yet places like this exist?   Doesn't seem fair or right.

It is always a thought provoking topic that's for sure, but you nailed it in one statement . "We have to legislate for muppets"!   Most of us that carry a knife are sensible about it, we treat them as tools and not toys or weapons.  The guy you related to that had his knife taken off him on the train .. well IF he was really sitting on the train shaving his arm, then he's one of the aforementioned muppets.   Over in the US I had my Swiss Army Knife taken off be by the thugs that run the Liberty Island security.   You have to to go through airport style security and I'd genuinely forgot it was in my pocket.    My options were 1) hand it over for destruction or 2) Turn back and miss my slot on the boat over and thus losing my money for the trip.  It was a $30 knife, if I'd been alone I'd have just left with my knife, but the trip costs were over the value of the knife.  

I find the UK knife laws, like a lot of laws that relate to "weapons" laughable since the ONLY people that try to adhere to the laws are the law abiding citizens.  Criminals will never pay attention to them and those are the very people the laws are designed to try and stop.  Law makers really just don't get it.  

As for the carry of bushcraft knives.  I've read over and over and I practice this myself, my bushcraft knife stays in my ruck as far down inside as I can  get it but still make it accessible so I don't have up end the bag to get it out, but far enough in to make it difficult and show PC Plod that I'm not ready to use it in a seconds notice.  Do not carry on your belt in to and out of the woods.  Get to your camp spot then strap it on if you must.   I don't see the need at all for "bushcraft" knives with 10+ inch blades like that beast you have haha a smaller knife and an axe will be a much better replacement.   It would be much easier to argue the reasons for having a small hatchet/small forest axe and a sensible knife over a 15" machete.

Well done filming this dick of a cop.  WOW just wow.  That cop clearly needs a new job somewhere else, perhaps somewhere that doesn't involve actually dealing with people.  I really hope that Uber driver sues the hell out of them for that abuse.

Learning to learn again
Introduction
Hobbies include losing weight, learning bushcraft, photography and not often but also a radio ham (M1XZG).  My current interests are trying to get outdoors and learn bushcraft.  I really envy those that have good size woods and even hills around them.  Cambridgeshire is flat and really not very exciting when it comes the landscape.

40<something>, Gàidhlig learner also speak a little Mandarin Chinese and some German, Oh and English ain't bad either.

The High Line is NOT your usual sort of tourist place. It's a lovely bit of open space over a large area. Frankly it's a MUST do. You will want nice weather though, it wouldn't be fun in a rain storm. There's a lot more to see then I'd expected, it's an awesome project that more cities should look to copy.

Last weekend I spent Saturday night camped out in the woods with a bunch of other folks and it was a great weekend. The staff at the shop were friendly and they have heaps of excellent locally produced foods. The booking, check-in and check-out process for camping was completely painless and the facilities were spot on. I'll most certainly be going back to do some more "wild camping" in their woodlands again in the future.

I wish I could give more than 5 stars here .. These guys were awesome at getting my Samsung Galaxy S4 LCD screen replaced. I dropped the phone off and left for a coffee and it was ready before I finished the coffee. After the appalling service I'd received from a random online "repair shop" which completely failed to do any repair on my phone in 2 weeks, these guys put everything right in just 20 minutes! Their price was what I'd expected and being a Samsung Authorized Repair Centre I knew I could trust them to do a good job, but they did a great job! If you need a screen replaced and you're local enough to swing in and drop you phone off, then do it. Forget those guys online where you send you phone away for days or even weeks!!! Thanks very much guys!!!

My kids love coming here, there's so much more to do than most indoor play centres. They really love the indoor climbing wall and the Sky Rider. I don't think there's anything they don't like to be honest. I only give it 4 stars because I think the prices for the food is a little high, it's decent enough food, but just a touch high really. But a great place to take the kids if you wanna let them run wild for a few hours. During busy times they do have a 2hr play limit, but that's normal for these sorts of places.

I haven't dealt with Urmston Computers, but rather Steve Goossens new company, *Nationwide Repair Centre* in it's new location of New Hill, High Peak. I can say I would NOT recommend this company to anyone, or any company that Steve has anything to do with. I sent my Samsung Galaxy S4 in for repairs and after 2 weeks I finally got my phone back in exactly the same condition as it was in when I sent it to him. I sent him photos from today and from the day it broke, his response was: "These pictures could have been taken at any time so i can not accept these as proof." The screen is broken in the same place. I demanded a refund but was told he won't give refunds and I could send the phone back to him to look at. NO CHANCE! I was also told that if I tried to get a refund via my credit card company he would report the phone stolen and have it blacklisted. When I opened a dispute with PayPal over no contact in more than a week I was threatened if I didn't close the dispute I wouldn't get my phone back and if I didn't pay he would sell the phone after 3 months. I am glad that I have my phone back in my hands and will have it fixed at an authorized Samsung repair shop. I urge ANYONE that needs their Samsung repaired to call Samsung or use one of their authorized shops. They're all cheaper than this guy and 3 of them that I spoke too said they will replace the screen while I wait. I wish I could give less then 1 star as a warning ..
