10 Great albums...

"Speaking about what made Led Zeppelin so special, Page has his own theory. "You had superstars in other bands at that time. But you didn't have four who were real masters of their craft, who could play as a band like that," he says. "Not at this time. We were an amazing live band from the start and I don't mean that in an arrogant way. We were on top of the game. Anybody's game."...


Probably not exactly what you were looking for...

But hey...

It's a contribution...

Mr E

Happy to know you like your new home.

Do you know who/how the new trail up/down got made?

I owe them....

The old trail was like 2 steps up- one down, two more up, one back, made it hard to count.

Dwain.... Hi, Hi?

I find myself counting steps in groups of 100 when suffering a bit when walking out of the mountains. I won't allow myself to look down the trail until a thousand steps. Don't know if it helps, but it seems to keep my mind off my aching feet, back, and shoulders.

Not as good at counting as I was when I was 10. Couldn't seem to get to 100 without losing my concentration on my last trip. Maybe early onset Alzheimer's.

I did traffic counting in rural Alaskan villages at one job. Fortunately it was one of the rubber tube types, so we just set it up and left rather than sitting there counting quads going by. Some of those counts were pretty damn' low.

Glad I'm not the only one counting steps..
I do it all the time on approaches but never on descents..

I once estimated how many eggs that I've cracked. The number made me not want know how many eggs that I've cracked. I'll never do that again.

Other than that I often count my breaths. It a good technique for meditation.
