1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Not at this point.

    The St James in Kudu and Cedar is what currently moves me.

    I've been looking at the St James for awhile but this makeup really spoke to.me.

    Now that you mention it, that's more like it.

    The voice said Mr., because he knew better. LOL

    Either way those shoes called out to me, and I felt so obliged.

    These shoes are a bit like mistresses. As long as my wife is not aware of their existence, I can enjoy them, caress with them and wear them. [​IMG]

    So this may be stupid question or not but do you guys use Mac way to break in all your shoes or is it only applied to high end shoes. Meaning 400$ and up?

    When I talked about my boots this way about two years ago, I was called weird. Can't remember the thread.

    What I had said was that the textural quality of boots was as important to me as the fit and looks because when I sit in meetings or whatever and cross my legs, I like feeling the touch of the leather because it's soothing and helps if the meeting is boring. That's one reason I don't have an obsession with shell as some others do. I personally don't think the textural feel of shell is nearly as appealing as some really nice calf or even CXL.

    I was just told I should have bought some $400+ Camina boots to use as beaters so it's all relative.

    At least you guys are lucky enough to were that I get to stair and sit on tennis shoes. Only if soaks can come up with high end tennis comfortable shoes would be nice.
