Thanks Jim.

My name is originally French, however I am from Peru so I have the Spanish pronunciation of it.

I am very excited about my skating progress and I love that there is a place to share and get advice.

Lourdes,
That is so cool. My wife is Russian. I love accents. I once spent a week in Peru on business. I was in Lima. The people that were working with me took me to a restaurant and introduced me to something that translated into "Macho Fish". It was too macho for me. I was sick for days after. It tasted good, I just couldn't handle it.

We are happy to help you. Have fun.

One of the resons I learned, ¿Qué es eso?, and ¿Cómo se dice? and learned to use them to figure what I might be eating before hand..

When I went to a buddies wedding in Italy, at the rehersal dinner, one of the Antipastos, was Eel, while I wasn't a big fan of it, I dove right in and started eating, as I was finishing, what had been quite unpleasant, to eat, too boney for me??? I noticed that everyone else at the table had a pile of small bones left on their plates.. And no that didn't help me digest the Eel any better!!! It was a battel to keep it down for the rest of the night!! And what was on the menu for the following days wedding feast?? Eel and I didn't partake, thank you very much!! As is usualy in Italy the food is great, but once in a while it's better to check what you are served, and to watch how it is to be eaten!!!


Just another of lifes little lessons ..

Jim, That is one thing you have to be careful with in Lima... where you eat seafood and how it is prepared. The first time Dan went to Peru it was the same thing, he got really sick.

Ray, I agree always good to check.

It was bad. I had sweats, and other physiological problems. I couldn't sleep that first night of sickness. The hotel had a casino. It made the problems feel better. It was a 24 hour casino in the hotel, but they made me leave after I kept winning. I was betting about a dollar to $10 a play and in 2 hours I was up over $200. I didn't count but I had a decent idea of ratio's of face to lower cards as we played. I also knew the proper betting strategy. Odds were about 51% I win, 49% casino wins if you play properly ALL THE TIME (actually the odds are a bit closer than that, but that is close enough). I also played with a variant betting scheme. betting $1 typical bet, after 3 losses in a row, I would increase to $2, then $5, then $10. If I did not win, I would reset back to $1 for 3 more hands and then repeat the process. I almost always hit the multiples the first time after 3 losses.

After 2 hours, they shut me down and made me leave the casino. $200 richer, the next day I went out and bought a nice leather jacket in the market. Had I not been sick, I would not have stayed up and would not have gone to the casino.

Funny... I was able to get a few hours sleep after that.

Hi! this is my first post & I'm anxious to do it right.
I'm an Artistic Roller skater from Tallahassee, Florida where I take lessons every Saturday morning and stay for the next session. Jerry Peterson at Skate World has been my instructor for the past 6 years.

I started out from scratch with a group of 8 year olds who I towered above learning T-stops and bunny hops. Now that they are sophisticated young adults they like to pretend that skating is in the old days, but they will be back.

I'll be learning new techniques for as long as I'm this sturdy and healthy. I work at the office so I can afford to skate and go far away to competitions which take a lot of time and money but I will put up with the drudgery of the office to support my passion for skating gladly and gratefully.

I have a passion for music and I'm told, a nice singing voice (Except when I don't warm up with the vocal exercises) My guitar playing habits overlapped skating a few years ago & I discovered skating is just like music, it is a lot of practice and sometimes boring, repetitive work until you finally get it right and sometimes it seems that everybody can do it better and why bother, but then, you get the strength to face the failures and you get the guts to keep going!

Welcome Susie, great having you join us. I really like your comparison of skating to music. That is a very good angle on the subject.
We have another member on the forum, Jim from Tallahassee, The Ancient One, who is a very accomplished skater and teacher.

Hi all. My name is Casey i'm 21 (about to be 22) and I've been artistic skating since I was about 10 I think though I took a 7 year break when I was 14 and returned to it about September last year and am about to take my secondary advance league test.

I used to skate at Caribbean Rollerama and now I skate at Albany Creek Skateaway.

I skate on Rye Float boots, Rye Supreme plates and conveniently enough Rye Maverick wheels.

I hope to make a lot of friends here!

Hey Casie welcome to the forum, glad to have you hear.
Hey on a side note... what in the the world are these Rye products? I have never heard of them, but I looked at the picture you uploaded and the boots look remarkably like a Edea Fly boots. The wheels look like Roll line wheels. I can't find a company web page on Rye. Did I just wake up in the twilight zone, whats going on? hahahaha.

They are a Brazilian brand. Their website is http://www.patinsrye.com.br/ This is actually a brand my rink stocks on a regular basis and yeah they are very much like the Edea Fly boots.

I'm mainly a freeskater, but I will be taking up CSD either later this year or next year, and am about to start pairs freeskating.

Question Norman?

Would there be anyone out there that has a photo of Norman Drake from Santa Rosa California 1960s? I would truly appreciate one.

Default Norman

Hi there

This is Corie, Norman's daughter. We are in the process of packing and moving, but if I come across anything I will see what I can do for you. I know that I have a box somewhere with his plaques and pictures of him with some of his students.

Thanks
