My local shoe repair shops are closing down.  The closest shoe repair is over an hour’s drive.  Given this I am thinking it would be easier to see if there are online repair by mail shops.  I would…Continue

"Its where you are buying your shoes and perhaps how tightly you strap the belt down. You need a whole grain belt not the thin split grain cheap stuff. A good belt will cost a bit but last a lot longer."

David F. replied to Vickyo's discussion Boyfriend has no ambition
"No it is not.  Perhaps rather then asking what he wants to do for work, ask where he wants to be in 5 years or 10.  For me in college, it was doing engineering and wearing a suit like my father.  Focus not on the work but the…"

Sean O' replied to David F.'s discussion Signed up for the Gym. Asking for a Clue.
"Perhaps part of our confusion is because of terminology or it could just be completely different viewpoints. I believe that SS and Stronglifts or any 5 x 5 is a great beginning program. In fact SS strongly emphasizes proper form and starts fairly…"

Peter Bb replied to David F.'s discussion Signed up for the Gym. Asking for a Clue.
"What I meant is that if you are a complete beginner, you need to familiarize yourself with the gym first and how thing work, especially learning proper form. A lot of people start doing things like SS and get injured quickly. If you have been…"

"Good points Shane, but PT is much different than weight training for strength/size/general fitness. I still say that, even with light weights (whether machine, barbell, or little pink dumbbells) that the compound movements should be the basis for a…"

David, I noticed that you didn't put your name on the members map, I was just looking to find out how close you were to the tornado that ripped through TUSCALOOSA, Alabama. Did you suffer any from that tornado?

Then I realized I went right by your fair city when I was escaping Hurricane Katrina. I was going to friends in Tupelo.  At the time I was living in Pass Christian.
