Because Dutch clogs were often thrown into the fireplace for heat when they wore out, the IAmsterdam website reports that historians have found it difficult to track the origins of Dutch wooden clogs. The oldest clogs found in Amsterdam, made of alder wood, date back to about 1230. Another pair of clogs dating back to 1271 was found in Rotterdam, according to the International Klompenmuseum (Wooden Shoe Museum) in Eelde. They were used in muddy fields because they were easy to remove and clean. They were used by factory workers because the sturdy wood protected them from sharp or falling objects. Some clogs had rounded toes, and the IAmsterdam website reports that others had pointed toes to help fisherman pull in their nets from the water. Smuggler clogs had a backward footprint carved onto the bottom, reportedly to confuse police in pursuit. Dutch wooden clogs differed from German clogs. German wooden shoes had an open back, leaving the heel exposed, while Dutch clogs have a deep hollow at the back to surround the heel, according to the Klompenmuseum. For Dutch clogs, the Herrick District Library in Holland, Michigan, reports that fresh wood is used to create discs. Each disc can produce four to eight pairs of clogs. Chisels and pole knives are used to cut chunks of wood into rough forms and then shape them into shoes. Craftsmen hollow out the shoes with other knives. Each pair is then hung outside to dry. Some clogs are decorated with carved or painted designs. Alder, willow and poplar are popular woods used to make the wooden shoes. Because they could protect against concentrated acids and sharp, heavy objects, the European Union once approved wooden clogs as safety shoes. However the EU began requiring certification in 1995, making them technically illegal in the workplace, according to the Associated Press. Most clogs today are machine made in factories for tourists. About 6 million pairs are sold each year in the Netherlands. Near Amsterdam, in the neighborhood of Zaanse Schans, workers still hand craft clogs near the banks of the Zaan River. Wooden shoes are not unique to the Netherlands. Because wood is more plentiful than leather, they were used in other countries, too. For example, the Klompenmuseum contains clog making machines used in Germany and France in the 1920s. describe shoes worn with wooden treads. People in southern China still wear wooden sandals. The Turkish Cultural Foundation reports that bathing clogs with high heels to protect feet from water on bathhouse floors were used during the early 1300s.

Recently, I wrote a lens on brewing kombucha tea. It something I always been interested in learning, but I never got around to trying my hand at it. I started the lens as a way to commit to the idea and start the project. What I realized is that learning a new skill is a great way to start a new lens and the act of creating and working on the lens was great motivation to continue the journey. Today I wanted to show how you can turn real life learning into online inspiration and use Squidoo to jumpstart your projects. I put off finishing this lens and getting it published for about a week because I wasn ready to take pictures for it. Then I decided to check Creative Commons image search for some photos that might get me off the ground, and I found some that I liked. Adding my own photos will allow me control of the visual as well as the written information on my lens but using these images allowed me to keep the momentum going. I was reminded that a great lens is always a work in progress and I can almost always improve or expand on my lenses. When it time to add your own photos, consider leaving some or all of the old ones a mix of curated and unique content is always a great approach. 2. Haven started yet? Write what you do know and update as you learn I started my lens long before my first batch of tea was ever done. Starting the lens was my first step in learning to make the tea, and when I started the lens, the process had begun and my idea became something I was going to finish. Once I felt like I had enough experience to be comfortable with the basics I started to write. As I learned more, I added it to my lens and just like that, I was ready to publish! There plenty of room for expansion, but starting the lens before my project was fully underway was just what I needed to get going. 3. Connect with others and share your progress A wonderful thing often happens on a great Squidoo lens a community springs up that wasn there before. Lots of lensmasters have found that by creating a lens and sharing their story, they connect with other people who gone through something similar, share the same interests or have advice to offer. If you holding back from trying something new because you don want to go it alone, why not look for a community online and create a lens to share your progress? You might even find like mindedindividualsright here on Squidoo. You can learn a lot from other people, even if you never able to meet in person. 4. Use your lens as a digital journal As we learn and develop skills, what we have to share and teach changes and expands. A lens can be a great way to keep track of your progress towards a goal, reflect on a journey or show your achievements to the world. Here are just a few ways you could use this approach to build a lens: Learn a new recipe and add variations as you try them Upload images of the art you create, on your own or in a class Share something personal, like improving your health or achieving a fitness goal Restore something and document the process and techniques you use Keep a multi media dream journal with images, music, video or anything you want Those are just some of the ways you can use Squidoo as a tool for learning and creatingsimultaneously but the possibilities are endless. What have you learned in the course of creating a Squidoo lens? Could building a lens be the motivation you need to try something new? I love to hear your experience in the comments. Photo Some rights reservedbytorres21 I using a lens to push me along on my journey toward publication in the science fiction genre. It forces me to think through what I doing. The bit where I keep readers updated shows me my progress and if the last date in that section is too far in the past, it pushes me to do something right then. Through that lens, I learning what works and what doesn work in my writing process, the submission process, and in my artistic process. It is causing me to analyze things in a way I never have before by requiring me to explain what I doing to my readers. Creating Squidoo lenses has also honed my ability to pull ideas out of my bum and to work with what I have, especially for quests. Give me a bit of string, some Elmer Glue All, and a quest prompt and I give you a craft project. The quests have taught me to just do it. The biggest new thing making Squidoo lenses has motivated me to do is to put things out there even if they might seem strange. I couldn begin to list the things I learned from making lenses. There is a degree of freedom in making Squidoo lenses that allows us to give just about anything a try. And nowhere else is the landing so soft if we make an utter mess of it. Heh. Good tips. I never finished with ANY of my lenses I always revisiting them to tweak here and there to fix typos that inadvertently creep in to add new photos (I try to take my own photos only very rarely do I use my kids or relatives or good friends [and then only with permission and with attribution]), and add new information when I find it. Saves a lot of headaches and later pain. Like you said, the key word is start start writing SOMETHING. Add to it with illustrations and more information as you learn about it. That how you fill out a good Squidoo lens. : ) Ah, yes. I have just started a lens about engagment rings and I have only just started learning about the idea of jewelry as investments. I have been studying jewelry for some time, but sometimes I find it hard to think of how my studies might lend themselves to providing information that others might find accessible and useful. Through my studies of communication I have learned about how corporations have built their businesses on the idea of selling love. By talking about the communication, investment, and jewelry design aspects, I am trying to write about engagement jewelry from a different angle! Tom, this is exactly how I went about writing my lens on How to Paint Shoes for Frugal Fashion Fun! I had wanted to learn the best way to paint leather shoes so that the paint didn crack at the bend in the shoe vamp and the paint job didn look like a paint job. I decided to commit to writing a lens about this subject, and as I researched the information to find out the best practices for painting leather shoes I started building my lens. After I determined the best method for painting my old pair of leather sandals I got to work on the project, documenting each step in the process in words and with my camera as I went along. I even asked my lens visitors to help me decide between two different embellishments for my sandals, and then added photos of my completed old painted and embellished footwear. Writing and updating this lens has taken a lot of time and effort, but it also was a lot of fun especially when it received a purple star and was selected as Lens of the Day! :) Men Nike Free Run 2 Purple Gold White,Just as you should do certain things when you have diabetes, there's also a list of things you should avoid and why. I provide this list reminded of my kids. I asked them to NOT splash water out of the bath tub and of course what ends up happening? Alas, I am comforted only by the fact that most of you are going to be older than they and better able to apply this information of what you should not do and replace it with the positive behavior. Here they are. 1)DON'T go barefoot Whether in your house or out of it, your feet may encounter things on the ground that cause damage, like small plastic toys, bits of glass, nails, or very sharp rocks. (Although you should also keep your floors free of these potentially dangerous bits of things.) Because you may not notice when you step on something like this, (and thus damage your foot as you continue to walk on your injury), you can avoid the problem entirely by wearing shoes (WITH socks) pretty much all the time. Except in bed. Your feet are usually pretty safe there. (Although you can wear socks in bed for warmth.) 2)DON'T put tight things around your legs Foot or leg wear like garters or knee high stockings (or elastics to hold UP the stockings) can reduce circulation to your foot, thus exacerbating your bloodflow problems. Panty girdles, thigh highs, and even sometimes men's socks can also be problematic if the elastic is too tight. This should not be mistaken with physician prescribed compression stockings. 3)DON'T expose feet to extreme heat/cold Again, because of nerve problems, you may not be able to feel when the skin of your foot is too hot or too cold, and thus be unaware when extreme heat or cold causes damage. In order to avoid problems, don't walk on hot pavement, never use a hot water bottle or heating pad on your feet (wear socks instead if your feet are cold), be careful of car heaters on road trips, and don't put ice on your feet if they feel hot. Also, apply sunscreen to your feet to avoid sunburn. 4)DON'T cut corns or calluses yourself If you try to perform "bathroom surgery" on your corns or calluses, you run the risk of cutting too much off, or getting an infection. If you need them removed, your podiatrist is very skilled at taking corns and calluses off. He or she can also instruct you how to work on calluses (the ones that aren't too thick) using pumice stones or emery boards, but only if you promise to follow their instructions carefully. NEVER use medicated callus or corn removers, since these can eat into healthy skin and cause infections. 5)DON'T use commercial foot supports Your podiatrist may wish to prescribe orthotics for your use, but avoid over the counter arch supports or foot pads as you run the risk of them not fitting properly and rubbing a sore in the foot. 6)DON'T smoke Smoking can further reduce your circulation, causing even more complications with healing. Quit smoking as soon as possible to avoid these complications. 7)DON'T drink excessively Just as smoking can further damage your circulation, so alcohol can speed up the damage to your nerves already caused by neuropathy. This increases the likelihood that you'll be unable to detect injury or other problems with your foot. Avoid drinking in excess. 8)DON'T cross your legs Crossing your legs while sitting (or even lying down) can compromise the circulation in your legs and feet. You may look great while doing it, but remember that it's your health that's most important, not your appearance. (Yes. Despite what the fashion industry may tell you.) Warning: The following paragraph is scary to read but is something all patients with diabetes should know. Okay, here it is: Despite your best efforts and the best efforts of your podiatrist, amputation is sometimes necessary in order to curb infection before it spreads to the rest of the limb, or to the body as a whole. Such amputations might be the best way to save the rest of your limb or your life. Your podiatrist will discuss your options with you if this step becomes necessary. Always remember though: amputation is a last step resort. In most cases, it can be prevented by regular screenings with your doctor, proper management of your diabetes, and daily self checks. Early recognition of problems and immediate treatment are essential in preventing serious complications. So, in short, stay on top of your diabetes, and it's much less likely to bowl you over.
Welcome To Our Online Shop Men Nike Free Run 2 Purple Gold White,Men Nike Free Run 2 Green White Turquoise Pinpoint your pain. Ongoing stiffness and pain in the joints and toes may mean you have arthritis. An inflamed or painful heel can indicate heel spurs. Pain along the arch of the foot can result from plantar fascitis, a common inflammation of the foot tendons. Unusual bumps on any part of the foot could mean your bones rub against the skin due to poor fitting shoes or skeletal problems. Any long term foot pain can indicate circulatory problems, nerve damage or bone structure flaws. Again, see an MD or podiatrist if pain persists. Scan your skin. Scaly or itchy skin can result from fungal infections. The most common is known as athlete's foot. To treat, wash your feet daily with soap and warm water. Dry the feet carefully. Make sure that your shoes and socks are dry and clean. Visit your doctor if the condition does not improve. Painful corns or calluses can build up due to pressure from tight fitting shoes. Keep the skin covered with a soft bandage to reduce pressure. Then soften the skin with lotions or soaking the area in warm water and Epsom salts. Blisters result from skin friction. Don't pop them this can lead to infection. Keep the blister covered by a bandage until it heals. If a skin injury becomes infected, see a doctor as soon as possible. Men Nike Free Run 2 Purple Gold White The brakes on mountain bikes have evolved over the years. The predominant design is a variation of the cantilever brakes found on most bikes.A cable running from a lever on the handlebars pulls the two levers on the brakes together. This squeezes the brake pads against the outside of the wheel.Some bikes, especially those with suspension systems, use disc brakes. These work just like the disc brakes on a car.The brake lever uses hydraulic fluid to transmit the force from your hand to the brake shoes. The handle presses a small piston that applies pressure to the fluid in the line. At the wheels, a larger piston squeezes the pads onto the disc. Since this piston is larger, the force is multiplied at the wheels. (See a diagram and learn more details about hydraulic force multiplication.)The handle contains a small device that works something like the master cylinder in your car brakes. It makes sure that there is enough fluid in the reservoir that if the pads wear, or the fluid expands or contracts (as it does when heated or cooled), there will still be enough fluid in the system to actuate the brakes.
