This is not the type of post I would normally roll with, but it is an acknowledgement to a group of people who have really helped me out over the last four months or so.
I have really been struggling with an injury to my lower back and been in a lot of pain. It has interfered with my normal day to day life and stopped me from playing football, which is a passion, and most other training.
The guys at Global Chiropractic have straightened me out, literally! It has taken a while and Garry Carless, the main man there, explained that I would need patience. They were not treating symptoms, they were treating the cause of the pain.
so this post basically is a testimonial to Garry and his team at Global.
If you are in the Barcelona area and having any issues, I can highly recommend these guys...I am feeling like my old (read young) self again.
Thanks Gaz!

RIP Lena Horne

The beautiful singer, actress, and civil rights activist Lena Horne has sadly passed away today.
"I was unique in that I was a kind of black that white people could accept," she once said. "I was their daydream. I had the worst kind of acceptance because it was never for how great I was or what I contributed. It was because of the way I looked."
this is undoubtedly true, but it also meant she was able to pave the way for other black artists opening doors into Hollywood and other major venues of the time such as the Copacabana nightclub.
She was 92.

Elephant parade update, London 2010

Here are some photo's of my elephant in situ at the Elephant Parade in London. It's in Green Park along with some other amazing designs from other artists.
It's called 'In Your Trunk (turn the bass up)', though better known as 'Harry' to my mates kids Amia and Zadie.
These two images were snapped by photographer Mark Dear.
you can check out more of his Elephant photo's here.

there is also a map of where the elephants are situated which you can download as a PDF here.
