    hi all just wondering if any of you have heard or tried vibration machines{no not that sort lol } they are about the same height as a treadmill and half the length, you stand on or sit on them plus other positions and is supposed to be good for circulation, metabolism and i forget what else,they are quite expensive so i don't want to get one unless i'm sure, i had asked on a site here in oz buy only 1 person replied and that was to say she wondered the same thing ,so i'm hoping it has been around longer in america and somebody may know about it ...jenny

    still going slow

    hi kaye please don't get discouraged everyone journey is different you are doing well, for myself it has been an incredibly long time 2 years this july and 16 kilos down my last fill has done it have best restriction ever and at last got my head into gear being one of the older bandsters i must be like the proverbial teaching the old dog new tricks but i don't care how long it takes me i NEVERwould have lost it without the band just got heavier and heavier i reckon. so keep happy slow and steady wins the race, hopefully when we have another catch up for coffee we can meet...:)jenny

    Roadside shrines

    in the last few years there has been an increase in them here in australia as well, i can't see why cos that is what we have cemetaries for you go there and and pay your respects after all that is where their remains are, there has been a roadside tribute near my house for at least 3 years yet in all that time i go past many times i have never seen anyone there and no-one i know has seen anyone there, if they have to do it then i feel local laws should put a time limit on them
