    Sorry to hear about that.
    I do the "sting ray shuffle" when wading in and out but still figure it's just a matter of time before it happens to me. Rays concern me more than sharks.

    Obviously, people get extremely worked up over politics (and religion too), yacking on and on about it to no end. An American pastime. So often, whoever happens to be President gets blamed (mostly...

    That's the attitude to have.
    Having a lousy session can be frustrating, but at least you got out there.

    Sorry to hear that. Although if they're leaving VB to go down there, I certainly don't have a problem. What is it that's drawing them to Buxton - especially all the way from Canada?
