Re: Name that tune

I definitely know the tune. From the early 70s, right? Sort of a blues-rock song?

Every time I try to catch the lyrics I segue into "I fought the law, and the law won" which isn't right (different decade, I think).

Cheers, :P

Re: Name that tune

I know the tune... I just can't place it.

John Cougar... John Mellancamp... John Cougar Mellancamp Cougar... comes to mind... but I don't think that's right, either.

Guy -- that's just amazing! Very well done. ^O^ ^O^ ^O^ How do you get your heart-rate to drop while increasing your speed? That's a trick I'd love to learn. :lol: Max -- very nice PB!

Re: Injuries.....:(

What did you change, diet wise? If you don't mind sharing... Sure thing. I don't mind sharing. :) But people can be pretty touchy about the foods they eat, and enthusiasm can often sound like preachiness, so I want to assure everyone that I don't care what anybody else eats. I'm not trying to chang...

Re: Name that tune

My father used to sing this song. It's Down by the Salley Gardens. Very good, Paul! Written by W.B. Yeats in 1889, shows up on many CDs of traditional Irish music. (I think I've got 5 or 6 copies in my collection.) Down by the salley gardens my love and I did meet; She passed the salley gardens wit...

Glad your arm is on the mend, Dave. My back is feeling quite well. I have been doing static and dynamic stretching as well as Tai Chi. Other things are... not so well. Last week I was hospitalized for two days with heart attack symptoms. All tests for heart attack were negative, though, and the diag...

Thanks Tako!

That's my plan. Slow and easy for at least 3 months to build up basic endurance again.

We'll see how it goes.
