The reality is that there's about a 3 month holding period before the domain becomes available for purchase so that's not really likely to happen. They aren't optimising for anything really - what's in the meta tags and title were put there by me based on what I thought was appropriate!!

I've been in touch and the problem is that Bob is on holiday abroad and isn't able to renew the domain until he's back. There's no issues other than unfortunate timing (and no auto renew)!
You're right Pedders, I think it's time to address the facts and put my real age (28) rather than pretending I'm actually older than I am!  :D

I had a nasty ear incident when learning to scuba...descending was difficult but I did it, but coming back up was horrendous. I had all sorts of screeching, squelching and pain and had significantly reduced hearing in one ear. Various check ups at the hospital confirmed everything was technically ok - it just took time to resolve itself. Not fun though...and very worrying for a musician.
Nice work - and an excellent little seque there!  :)
Any Other Business / Re: Reason to be skeptic!

I have a healthy interest in this sort of stuff, I find it fascinating but I'm also able to view things with a decent dollop of sensibility and scepticism.

I did do a Reiki course in London once, it cost over £400 and was the most cringeworthy, Americanised group hug fest I've ever had the displeasure of enduring. Fortunately I was there with my gf so we pretty much ignored the whole "go and hug someone" thing and just hugged each other. The end was mega cringeable, we were told to sit opposite someone (it was supposed to be a stranger), hold their hands, look them in the eye and sing along to 'you are so beautiful' by Joe Cocker. I could barely contain myself, it was sooo chuffing awful but people were literally crying buckets there.

I think in that room I realised how many people there are that have 'issues'. So it really comes as no suprise that people go from one daft thing, onwards to progressively dafter things, in a search for some sort of life meaning.

That's quite deep, I think I'll meditate on that one whilst dowsing myself in virgin yak wee.

Sad, but I do think that anyone that thinks that being "covered with mud, wrapped in plastic, put under blankets and immobilized with your head in a cardboard boxes for about nine hours, under instructions to hyperventilate" is probably a few sandwiches short of a picnic.

That said, I think that there should be accountability on the part of the 'leaders' of this sort of thing...if there was, they'd perhaps think twice about what they were putting people through.

Craig - if I said I wanted to have your babies, would that help?  :D

Seriously, the world is full of twats, most of them with an opinion and enough brain cells to use a computer. My missus thinks you're ace...and you make prams sound good. Thumbs up!

It could also be a bit of a compulsion on John's part...most guitarists check tuning throughout gigs just to make sure nothing hideous occurs during a song.

Hope everyone has a great gig and it's the usual blend of prog, rock and silliness.  :D

Doneski...cute artwork too!
Well hello Rachael!   :)

Yes, I'm still here...dipping in and out of the Frostie pond every now and then! I'll drop you an email shortly.

Things have been a bit quiet on the Fushi front since the birth of our little boy Zac, who steadfastly refuses to sleep in the evenings and nighttimes! He's a few days off being one and still causing problems! Ho hum!

We're hoping to re-ignite the Fushi burners early next year and carry on writing and recording demos.

Tis easy...have kids! You'll never be short of an excuse to act like a for me! Running through a busy airport pulling a small child on a Trunkie, both of us going 'weeeeeeeeeeee' can only do that with a sprog in tow.  :D
