Sorry to hear you've still got a bad back, I sympathise a lot with that and would advise you go to Pilates classes - it's done me the world of good. The new lens looks great - bet you can't wait to get out there and use it!

I'm on 10mg amitriptyline + psychotherapy at the moment, if that doesn't help then I think it's going to be spinal injections. (I'm allergic to medicated anti inflammatory so can't take them) Cheers too :)

Yes you're right, I did LOL and do ;)

The doc said acupuncture, that's on the list somewhere if these don't work, physio first though :)

acupuncture is great for pain relief. It doesn't make it better (I had a prolapsed disc about 6 yrs ago, took about 18 months to get better) - but if the pain goes away, then the muscles stop spasming, and movement becomes easier. Pilates is good though, talk to the physio about it. We have two guys in my class at the mo, both have had spinal surgery.

Another from my day in London, tad annoyed with the Halo-ing, but it's not as pronounced as in some the previous shots. 15 sec daytime exposure.

Well, just had a heavy parcel turn up and my LOVELY girlfriend has bought me a Sigma 50-500. :eek:

Lucky you Radders I could do with a generous girlfriend like that.

bit of a rollercoaster week for me, my cat is terribly ill and it doesn't look too optimistic, then in a complete contrast some brilliant news about my Mum-in-Law who has responded so well to her chemo and is remission :D (oh and I bought a new car - pick it up next week, cannot wait!!!)


sorry to hear you need to take a break Ian - your contributions to this forum are one of the facets that makes it what it is

Oh dear Lee, so sorry to hear your cat is very ill :( but excellent news about your mum - fingers crossed for her.

Ditto your comment to Ian - taking a break from the forum isnt necessary :D

WHat've I missed - is Mark in Africa yet - I saw Clare's bears on fb (she's joining us in Norfolk for a couple of days too so twill be good to catch up), and Ian's comps keep popping up too :D I hope you're all well :D

Sorry to hear about the kitty mate. I can't remember, do you just have Mojo or was there another one?

Great news on the other fronts though!

felt_tip_felon wrote in post #16291356 (external link)
not to aggravate the situation JD - but in the spirit of things, "if you don't ask you don't get" & "if you don't like it, don't do it", so since Ian's request didn't offend or inconvenience you (or anyone else)

Plus, it was nice of Ian to offer us a pint for each vote we submitted. Ian: I hit 27 votes in the end, but we can space that out over a few evenings. I don't think I can manage it all in one go.

Well if nothing else, carrying around that heavy camera with the big new (also heavy) lens should help out! ;)

it's Rambo who's poorly... got to ring in an hour and see how night two of observation went, the forecast doesn't seem sunny sadly... Mojo is very, very sad :(

bless Ian - he's lovely like that :D

funnily thought the same thing about the MASSIVE new lens - oh well, no pain no gain! :cool:

well it's wetter than an otters pocket here so not ideal ahead of a weekend - probably means more pics of bugs for me! anyone else up to much?

oh and enjoy Norfolk Penel!

Your not aggravating the situation Lee - you've just expressed an opinion as did I. That said, it was certainly not my intention to offend Ian and I'll PM him now to apologise.

One thing I've learned from my years of living here is that those mancs are a sensitive, delicate bunch ;)

Hoping for good news about Rambo this morning Lee. Poor Mojo must be missing him loads.
Brilliant news about your MIL though, so good.

I'm going out with my friend Carl in Norfolk to Snettisham, apparently some amazing sunset wader stuff going on next week... he's taking his 800mm lens :rolleyes: men and their lenses :lol: Hope the weather improves though!

We didnt get to Snettisham when we went but did get to Cley Marshes which is very nice - very long lenses needed there though for stuff out on the scrapes.

A friend of mine has been in Norfolk this week and although the weather has been horrible, he has taken some nice windmill pics.
