They are an aid to help you walk, when the legs are a bit wobbly.

Youngster? I'm 30 and feel about 90 today.... Well, they say you are only as old as the person you feel.

Sadly, that makes me 43.....

Yes, you must live fairly close to me for retribution. look out for the scary goth. :rolleyes:

O.K. Hana,
This is exactly what I mean with the plethora of topics we have in this forum and where I have been writing about earlier.

By reactivating my old topic about "Greek/Cretan Dances" I replied to Steve's remarks in "Cretan Wife's".
People tend to read only the last postings in a topic, or maybe only the page they can see on their screen, and because we all like to change of subject in our replies, we seem to forget where the topic was started with. B)

The link to dancing and what steps to make is the opening posting of this topic :blush:

Dig
Dug? B)

Time to get this one back on top of the list as well. People preparing there holidays may, probably, still find some time to practice. :)

Com'on, Wim, you are able to find just anything on the internet - couldn't you find an easier way for us to learn these steps? Like a video on Utube or something.... wouldn't it be nice for you to spend a rainy Sunday (where you are, not here of course) on searching for something like that? :) :lol:

O.K. Din,

Think this must do


There are some marvelous dances in it, but of course also some tourist bull..and the famous one that made Crete dancing known to the rest of the world. Yes, Alexis Zorba dancing his heart out in the movie "Zorba the Greek". Absolutely worth seeing...


But I'm afraid it'll be hard to learn some steps from them... :)

Also the ones from Macedonia are interesting (Vrach)
