"My most awesome thing may sound pretty weak to you outdoor men. I grew up in the city, but my Dad went back to his country roots when I was in my 20s. I have no idea about livestock, etc. One day I was visiting, and Dad had just been going on about…"

Mark Amey replied to Matt's discussion Bench press help
"Two things: one is that the pecs are a difficult group (no, not just one) of muscles to get growing, so 205 for a 1 rep max isn't too shoddy. Second, in the bench, the last third/quarter of the movement heavily relies on triceps. Are you…"

Mark Amey replied to Hunter's discussion Autism
"Doesn't sound like Angelmen's. She is certainly profoundly affected. I'm sure that there must be a number of organizations/support groups in your area. These may be the best place to start."

Mark Amey replied to Hunter's discussion Autism
"I'm wondering if she may have Angelman's syndrome, which affects girls, mainly. They develope normally, initially,  then regress rapidly, becoming mute. They often appear 'happy', but no-one knows whether they are really…"

Pleasure to meet you mark, always nice to chat with another like minded fellow. I my self am in accounting, I actually manage the accounting and financial advising department of this bank here where I live. It is a shame that you do not get to dress up more often were you are now but it is nice that you have the will to do so.
