    Awesome! I cant wait to see that project take shape. Probably a little much for a DIY project though, digging a pool ! :lol:

    I wish I lived in warmer climbs. :nod:

    Me too! England isn't bad but would love some Florida sunshine!

    Thanks for the photoshop tip it works a treat, I just tried it out on some wedding photos I took from a few weeks ago, really makes the sky colour 'pop' :)

    Yeah England (especially London) is dull and boring most of the time. My uncle emigrated to Florida and says its the best thing he's ever done.

    John the house and gardens look fantastic mate. :claplow:

    Very cool. You're welcome!


    Thanks!


    Yep, looked amazing on Blu-ray. The visuals impressed the hell out of me, but the movie itself did not. I mean, I liked the film and was very entertained, but it didn't blow me out of the water or anything (aside from the stunning visuals).

    Yeah, visually Avatar was awesome on Blu-ray. The movie was, eh. The plot reminded me a lot of Dances With Wolves, in the future....and without Indians :lol:

    Funny you say that, my wife and I just took our 6-month-old for a walk and we stopped by Best Buy (we live right behind one, literally 100 yards door to door) and it was playing on Blu-ray in their home theater set up on a 7000 dollar TV. It certainly did look amazing!!! I saw it at an IMAX 3D and to be quite honest, the 3D was very annoying for me. I liked the Blu-ray picture much better.

    Footage from this morning's bike ride. Test footage of the new GoPro HD camera handlebar mount, some cows and a baby turtle. :)

    Hey John,
    I don't follow you as closely as I once used to but I have to say thanks for providing me with that initial inspiration that I needed to get back active and healthy once again. That was about 3 years ago and I am feeling much better these days, with a much healthier lifestyle.

    Anyways I noticed you're really into mountain biking now. I just figured I should tell you that you REALLY need to visit the rocky mountains with a mountain bike if you really want the full biking experience. I live in Calgary, AB, Canada... i'm about 45 mins to an hr away from the rockies and I have to say these are some world-class trails we have out here. Just wanted to mention it - keep it in the back of your mind for the next time you plan a vacation... if you love mountain biking, you will be blown away. Let me know if you have any questions, i'd be happy to help you out :cool:

    John, awesome idea to give the "guided tour" of the pantry! I think that will help a lot of people, including myself. Don't forget about the fridge and freezer too. :)

    Mountain biking this morning on the overgrown land across the street from my house. There is a lot of sugar sand back there, which makes for great cardio workouts. I find my morning cardio is much more challenging and enjoyable when take my bike off-road.

    Hardrock in Tampa. A bit of a drive, but not too bad if I stay overnight at the hotel.

    Some wrist pain on my DB lateral drop sets (end of workout). Other than that, good workout today. Feels good to be back in the gym, but the continuing wrist pain is starting to make me think surgery is in my future.

    What do you think your wrist pain is? I had severe tendinitis in my left wrist which at 18 months of not being able to lift (devastating) is nearly gone.

    About all I know at this point is what it's not. I went to my doctor and he took some xrays; no bone issues at all. So it's some kind of soft tissue problem, but we're not sure what yet. My doctor is running me on a strong anti-inflammatory for three months in the hopes that will allow whatever is wrong to heal. Surprisingly he gave me the OK to lift. If the problem still exists at the end of the three months I'll go to an orthopedic doctor, where I suspect an MRI will be done followed by physical therapy and/or surgery.

    18 month would kill me. What finally fixed your wrist? Just the time off from lifting?
