Isn't this most amazing! I'd have been excited beyond belief if this were a birthday cake when I was a kid (yes, I was a bookworm and I loved Alice in Wonderland). Actually, I'd still be thrilled now!

+su ann lim You are such a considerate sweetheart. Many thanks. I actually know John Butterrill a little bit and admire his PhotoWalks hugely. Good idea to check out more of them.

RYAN ADAMS
Was gifted a  ticket to see Ryan Adams live at Vancouver's Orpheum with a pal tonight!  WOW! The concert was totally unexpected even for the performers because Ryan decided to perform despite a painful injury. It was completely spontaneous, accommodated requests, included a lot of good natured interaction with a very loyal audience including an improvised song "Gomer Pile didn't have a telephone..." (you had to be there...)
VANCOUVER LOVES RYAN ADAMS - for continuing despite obvious discomfort, for being so down to earth and for playing spectacularly from the heart!

Nice one, France!
A new law recently passed in France mandates that all new buildings that are built in commercial zones in France must be partially covered in either plants

I have learned that you can't argue with this, you just have to go along with it.

Naoto Matsumara returned to Fukushima to care for the abandoned animals in the radioactive zone...

HT +Cara Evangelista 
 
55-year-old Naoto Matsumura, a former construction worker, is known as the ‘guardian of Fukushima’s animals’ because of the work he does to feed the animals left behind by people in their rush to evacuate the government’s 12.5-mile exclusion zone. He is aware of the radiation he is subject to on a daily basis, but says that he “refuses to worry about it."
The untold human suffering and property damage left in the wake of the Fukushima disaster in Japan has been well-documented, but there's another population that suffered greatly that few have discussed – the animals left behind in the radioactive exclusion zone. One man, however, hasn't forgotten them...

FOOT HEALTH - it's not a matter of heel height that matters...
Flats with no arch support can be just as damaging as ultra-highs. In fact poor fit to one's unique foot shape, designs which force feet into unnatural positions, wrong size, no/poor arch support. unstable heels (regardless of height) are among common causes for foot problems. 

Re: Flats
"...with the shops full of practical-looking loafers, brogues and moccasins, you might think physiotherapists and podiatrists across the country would be panicking that they’d be out of a job.
In fact, they’re expecting to be busier than ever. Podiatrist Beverley Ashdown says: ‘There’s been so much publicity about the damage high heels can cause to our feet, knees and backs, we forget that flat shoes — particularly ones that offer little or no support to the foot — can cause just as many serious foot and postural problems.’

+Jim Philips while you explore the topic of footwear, please do not perpetuate the myth that the height of heels is the singular cause for poor health in feet. It is a gross generalization to suggest any type of heel height is a problem.  It is also irresponsible since readers may be influenced by your post and  opt for equally damaging flats with no arch support instead and to make the switch overnight (a gradual approach minimizes the damage risk from change.)  

Selecting optimal footwear is not a straightforward exercise because of the many factors to keep in mind, but imo there is an acid test -  are your feet absolutely comfortable in the shoes and will be at the end of a long active day wearing them. (I've had runners I had to get rid of because they did not meet my test but they were ideal for others.)

And, in 2015 women can find attractive, stylish shoes which can meet the happy feet test for themselves. Wearing ugly shoes is not a requirement for maintaining healthy feet.

I guess I'm slightly surprised here but not entirely. Flat feet are a medical issue so flattening shoes should be, too.
