What's wrong with plastic windows?
When they say you are too old you probably are, but do it anyway.

Old wooden windows in old properties have drafts, history and character, what this country needs. Plastic windows are new and convenient.  Wars were won with wooden windows and coal.

I'd love to know where they got their buoyancy aids from. I could do with a new one!!!

That picture is really odd, and not just because of the hiking. It is like someone has photoshopped 1970's sailors onto a 21st century boat.

The tool for measuring joint angles is a goniometer.

One Dr Jacques Rogge studied muscle strain while hiking back in the depths of time, I don't have the book with it in to hand at the moment though.

There is so much wrong with this sport, I'm constantly surprised I put up with it and the collateral damage by association it does to my image..
