Roller skating is fun

Roller skating by ArtMagenta.com

From the 1860s roller skates usually had wheels in pairs next to each other under the sole. The wheel sets were constructed so that they turned when the skate tilted, like with a skateboard.

Braking was done by means of rubber pads in front and /or behind the wheels.

Handball dilemma

Girl playing handball is a cartoon by Artmagenta
Kids playing handball
 If I throw on the goal and miss scoring, I get yelled at because I did not pass the ball to my teammates.

And if I pass the ball to my teammates, I get yelled at because I did not shoot direct at the goal, trying to score.

I think I'll let go of the ball and go to the bathroom...

Cliff hanger


There are many styles of rock climbing such as Traditional climbing, Sports climbing, Boulding, Free style, Indoor climbing etc.

Free soloing is single-person climbing without the use of any rope or protection system whatsoever.

Catherine is fond of Deep Water Soloing - Similar to free soloing in that the climber is unprotected and without a rope, but different in that if the climber falls, it is into deep water instead of on to the ground - you might survive!
