Biker, 72, sees best on a Gold Wing Man takes to road 'to ride and be free' April 07, 1993By Amy P. Ingram Amy P. "A car obstructs your view of nature, but on a motorcycle it's different. You feel like you're closer to everything," he explained. "You feel closer to nature and you'll see places you never saw before," he said. Mr. Crockett, of Severna Park, is one of the oldest members of the Anne Arundel County Gold Wing Road Riders Association, C group of Gold Wing bike owners, most of whom are over 50. "These older members, like Frank Crockett, put their priorities on their bikes," said Bruce Mayer, area representative of the Glen Burnie chapter. "They have the time and money to shine the chrome and take those three day trips. This is what they endure." Mr. Crockett's bike has taken him thousands of miles, from Maryland to Kentucky to upstate New York. He and his late wife, Alice Crockett, used to travel as much as 1,500 miles at a time, participating each year in about 12 rallies, at which local Gold Wing club members give visitors bike tours of the best sights in the area. "We ride and polish chrome and lie like heck, telling tall tales like a sailor when he gets off a ship," said Mr. Crockett laughing. "But it's a lot of fun. I have friends all over the country now and I see the same faces year after year." Mr. Crockett bought his first bike in 1937 for $25. Five years later, he proposed to his wife to be as they were riding down 32nd Street in Baltimore on his newest bike. But biking isn't just a hobby for Mr. Crockett. It also has been a job. In 1938, he rode a bike, with a side car, delivering parts for a motorcycle retailer. And during World War II, he rode a bike for the Maryland National Guard. For many years, Mr. Crockett taught a motorcycle safety course for the Motor Vehicle Administration. "A bike is dangerous. People should get proper training before jumping on a bike," he said. Mr. Crockett bought his first Gold Wing in 1976 and joined the club a year later. He said he hopes the club will help dispel the stereotype of motorcycle riders as outlaws. Biking is a form of rebellion, he conceded, but bikers "are not all like Marlon Brando" in "The Wild One." "We're not out to get anybody," he said. "We just want to ride and be free." He and other members of the local Gold Wing chapter have participated in charity events, such as the annual Christmas Toy Run for children and the Poker Run to benefit children with muscular dystrophy. In June, he plans to travel to Kentucky for an International Gold Wing rally. His bike will bear a shiny plaque reading, "In memory of Alice," his wife and riding partner of 50 years.

Men Nike Free Run 2 Green White Turquoise,The majority of my early childhood years were spent wishing I was a boy. Boys were cool. They got dirty when they played, they took their shirts off when they were hot, and they peed standing up. Hell, they could even write their name in the snow with pee if they wanted to. I was a convincing boy. I got dirty when I played, I took my shirt off when I was hot. But when it came to peeing standing up, I met with certain challenges. Having to hide behind a bush and drop trou when all my buddies could just turn their backs to the crowd, was humiliating. If only I had one of these back then. It's a nifty little device that allows women to pee while standing. Though it would have been a bit cumbersome to carry around the neighborhood with me on my bike it might have helped me out had anyone challenged me to a snow writing contest. In fact, I could use one here in France, where the majority of public toilets are inexplicably seatless and unforgiveably filthy. I suppose it's better than the hole in the floor you find at most Japanese rest stops. Freeway yet I still not entirely convinced I need one. What do you think? Is Go Girl gross or cool? Ha, ha,ha actually used this device, although it was a not so fashionable early model that was grey or something. I believe it was called the J. I did like it although I didn use it too much, there is some spillage over the sides, so carry hand sanitizer. Here the funny part. I went to a Phish concert in northern maine where the port a pottys got extremely gross after just hours of use, no matter how much they emptied them. So we were at the gate waiting to go in and I pulled out the handy J and went to the fence with the rest of the boys and did the deed. When I turned around, the crowds eyes were HUGE. A girl? No wait is she a boy? It was insanely funny and then I confessed to my new and a wave a relief covered the crowd faces. I guess hippies are a little unnerved by transexuals. Or perhaps it was all the recreational activities going on that fried their wee brains. Hello, Ladies! My name is Sarah Dillon, and I am President of GoGirl. Betsy thank you so much for writing about us we really appreciate your willingness to share the GoGirl product and message! and I love the commentary. To answer a few of your questions: Jen Kathy We always wanted GoGirl to be handy when you needed it, because it definitely not an everyday product. The GoGirl packaging that we created is a plastic, resealable tube that is just a little bigger than a tampon. That way, it can sit in the bottom of your purse or backpack until you really, really need it! Jenn B Great story! As for your concerns about spillage GoGirl has a patented splash guard (the first of its kind) and is made from soft, flexible medical grade silicone, so it forms a tight seal to your body. Kathy Because the GoGirl is made of medical grade silicone, it repels liquid. Also, included in the GoGirl packaging is a biodegradable bag that you can carry your used GoGirl in until you either reach a sink or a garbage. I will wait all day rather than try to squat in a dirty public restroom while traveling. That little habit makes plane trips so uncomfortable and caused all kinds of health issues when I was younger. Plus, our family loves hiking and camping, but I am the only one who has to worry about when and where to go. I have a really good squat technique, but I not always at my best at 2 in the morning. The other great thing aout this is that I would have loved to have one in college. All those nights out when have been so much easier and so much more fun. I definately kind of intrigued by this whole idea. I always was a little jealous of the boys and the writing in the snow thing. Heck, just the other night I got home from work and my hubby was in the bathroom (we have only one) and i was wishing i could just go off the back porch like he does sometimes, since the trees in our yard are not exactly good cover from the neighbors. But I learned very well as a camping teenager how not to pee on my shoes. and drunken practice in college helps. I probably would save my money, but if someone gave me one I think I would try it. And probably end up challenging my husband to a writing contest some night! Oh my can stop laughing I can remember being in the woods and have to squat and when I was a child I was no good at squating in the woods This seems to be practical for those times I can think of is that if I were on survivor this would be my essential device to bring. I think they would be good and they are cheap enough to dispose of if you dont have a place to clean it off. I am still not sure though but would def come in handy when we are on long trips only have boys they can pee anywhere, but mommy cant. Hmmm, I will have to remember this website! But its still very funny!! I researching the GoGirl for my wife I looked at the wiggles and it looks awful. Sorry. It 1) More expensive, 2) looks cheaply made, 3) You talking about size issues versus the go girl, but according to the creator of go girl above it not much bigger than the size tampons take up in a bag. I think people can carve out that small amount of space for something that appears to be much more sanitary. Plus, people are way more prone to buy something off a professional looking website (one where the owner actually owns a domain name, rather than being hosted off tripod. I mean, come on godaddy registration and hosting is under 20 bucks. Register an easy to remember domain name and make a more professional looking website to drive people to your product. When I was a kid, I used to help my dad in the yard. Every time I saw him trun his back and do what he needs to do. Once I wanted to pee so bad, and my dad gave me the option to pee on the grass by the tree. Currently,I drink so much fluids to fill up my bladder just for the sake of peeing outside. We have a wonderful private yard that makes it enticing to pee out there, as the bushes and the wall covers me up well. It was very interesting to hear about go girl just love to pee outside on the grass, and I will buy one and try it. You might think I crazy as I talking about the fun of peeing not the need of it lol Go girl seems very usable and practical, but there a technique which produces the same result: My advice: learn to pee standing without a device you could have forgotten at home. Here how: Step 1: stand facing downhill or stand on a flat surface. Step 2: if wearing zippered pants, unzip fly and take crotch of underwear to side. If wearing pants with an elastic waist, lower the waist of underwear and pants in front (don pull pants all the way down). If wearing a skirt (this is recommended for beginners), lift skirt in front and either lower waistband of underwear or pull crotch of underwear to side.

There are many factors that can cause this condition or contribute to the pain. Fortunately for those who suffer from it, there are several ways to ease the discomfort and prevent further inflammation and damage. On the bottom of the foot there is a thick tissue that connects the heel to the base of the toes. This tissue is called the plantar fascia. When it becomes inflamed, it causes shooting pain mainly in the heel. Plantar fasciitis is commonly found in athletes who do a lot of running. The repetitive impact against the hard ground can result in the inflammation of the fascia and can even cause heel spurs. Other people who are prone to this condition are overweight individuals, or those who bear extra weight on a daily and continuous basis. Those who have an occupation that requires long periods of standing are also at a risk for plantar fasciitis. Also, calf muscles that are not flexing in an optimum way due to being weak or under used can contribute to the inflammation. Ice therapy can provide relief, especially at the end of the physical activity that causes the inflammation. Doing stretching exercises each morning will help prevent further injury. Rotate the foot and stretch the calf muscles to help ready the muscle to take on the brunt of the impact of the foot. Losing weight can provide relief for overweight individuals with the condition. So can changing common habits such as reducing heavy lifting, and the overall amount of time spent on the feet throughout the day. Having proper arch support from plantar fasciitis shoes is also a very effective treatment for plantar fasciitis. This is especially true for a person who has flat feet. Cushioning the connective tissue on the bottom of the foot is one of the best ways to remedy the pain and also prevent it from becoming further inflamed. Plantar fasciitis shoes can be found in most stores where athletic shoes are sold such as a sports equipment store. For mild to moderate cases, these shoes will provide enough arch support and help the foot distribute weight evenly. For more severe inflammation cases, a doctor can prescribe a medical shoe. It will be customized to fit the patients foot and provide the exact amount of arch support needed to help relieve pain and reduce the inflammation. Men Nike Free Run 2 Green White Turquoise HAVANA (AP) It's a quintessentially Cuban experience: Capping off a meal with a snifter of rum and an aromatic cigar. This Caribbean nation is renowned around the world for its pungent Cohibas, Montecristos and Romeo y Julietas, but on the island, stogie lovers are increasingly being told to take it outside. The goal is to improve the culinary experience and safeguard the health of both diners and employees, but it's also raising eyebrows among cigar aficionados and cigarette smokers who say the right to light up is part of the tropical country's charm. Already, public smoking bans have spread to cities worldwide, from New York to Beijing. "No smoking areas? It's incredible!" said Michael Kuntze, a 59 year old German day care manager who was savoring a long cigar and sipping rum and cola in the Hotel Conde de Villanueva, home to one of the city's most popular cigar rooms. Kuntze and six other smokers from Hamburg were on a nine day tobacco tour, sampling more than three cigars daily and selecting 50 each to bring home. "That (no smoking ordinances) is what we have in Europe, in Germany, but we don't want this here," he said, as aromatic smoke rose from the thick ash at the end of his stogie. "This is why we are here. Not to sit inside a small smoking lounge, no. Never." Officials say the Conde de Villanueva, a favorite of cigar tourists like Kuntze, will continue to let guests and diners smoke. At least nine state run restaurants in the small, tourist packed colonial area of Havana have banned smoking inside since the end of 2011, and more will do so in the near future, said Tannya Sibori, publicity manager for Habaguanex, the state run business that administers tourist concerns in Old Havana. Only sealed, air conditioned dining rooms are affected, and Habaguanex restaurants all still have open air spaces for smokers. There is no word on a ban for bars or nightclubs, and the owner of one of Havana's private restaurants said he had received no guidance on whether the "paladares" must follow suit. Habaguanex officials described it as a bottom up trend rather than an order from on high, but said it's possible there could be an official decree at some point. "There is a campaign at the world level in which we should also take part, where we are helping to create healthier spaces even for the smokers themselves," Sibori said. Diners are still welcome to enjoy their after dinner cigar just move to the outside tables, please, where you can people watch on the quaint, cobblestone plazas and enjoy the balmy, tropical breeze. "Cuba has an eternal summer, and you can take advantage of the terraces and exterior spaces," Sibori said. Still, such a thought is anathema to some in Cuba. The island has an ingrained tobacco culture and is proud of its world famous cigar industry, which brought in $401 million in sales last year. When other goods were in scarce supply, cigarettes continued for years to be part of islanders' monthly ration books. Even nonsmokers cherished the subsidized tobacco, which they sold on the black market or traded for other goods. Today, state run radio airs public service announcements about the benefits of quitting, and cigarette packs carry health warnings. Cigarette dispensing machines have disappeared. Castro even joked about the ills of smoking cigars, saying "the best thing to do is give them to your enemy." Still, government numbers say as many as four of every 10 Cubans smoke though that's way down from estimates of 60 to 70 percent in the 1970s. Cuba has had a resolution on the books since 2005 banning smoking in theaters, stores, buses, taxis, restaurants and other enclosed public areas. But many are unaware of the law, and it's common to see people brazenly light up practically anywhere they theoretically shouldn't: offices, stairwells, elevators, buses, trains. Farmers rise early to tend their crops with cigars dangling from the lip, and even elderly women meander through crumbling city streets chomping on soggy cigar stubs. "This is a country of smokers, a country with an important tobacco tradition," Sibori said. "Changing habits that form part of our roots is very difficult. I imagine that little by little things will be implemented so that this takes shape, but I still think there is much work to be done." The Habaguanex initiative is also being carried out with zero fanfare, and no announcement in state run media. On a recent afternoon in El Mercurio cafe, tables were packed with French tourists chowing down on pork loin, rice, beans and fried plantains. Missing was the stale, smoky haze that used to hang over the tables. Waiters said they appreciate going home at night in clothing that doesn't smell like an ashtray. Chefs take smoke breaks outside the back door without apparent complaint. There's still some clandestine indoor smoking at some places late at night when most clients are gone, however. "Why not?" said Thomas Gabrisch, a Dusseldorf, Germany, music professor who was puffing on a slender cigarillo outside El Mercurio, when asked if he was OK with the indoor ban. "I think (smoking) bothers a lot of people. For me it would not be a problem . But I think a lot of people would like to stay inside." That sentiment was echoed by Dirk Brodersen, one of the aficionados from Hamburg, who said it was an adventure to be able to smoke the previous night at a basement music club.
