I believe Agadir is on his itinerary. He's going to send it to me this evening.

My son wanted to do something different for his 40th birthday last year.

He decided on a month doing Tai Chi in a Chinese monastery. He loved the relaxation of it all and is now 'at one with the world'.

I asked him if he could now use it as a form of self defence, "Yes dad, if they attack me in slow motion" rofl


Made me laugh @jonsie regarding the last line in your post above

I should like to think it would promote a feeling of well-being in me if I were able to do Tai Chi

I like the sound of your son @jonsie smiling

Those are wonderful experiences @jonsie, do you know whereabouts in Morocco? I used to live there Smiley Wink

 

Sorry @techtamer for thaking this off-topic, I've wanted to try my hand at many things and try to tackle them one at a time. This year I took up running and candle making for example, not sure what will be next yet!


@EmilieT 

 

No prob.

 

Running while candle making? Smiley Happy

@techtamer I'm doing those separately but it could be a very interesting, although quite dangerous, challenge! Smiley Wink

Re: Things you want to try your hand at

Great thread @techtamer! I've always wanted to try my hand at audio visual editing but I currently lack a decent PC setup to get started on. Definitely something I want to pick up on once I have the equipment. 

 

I'm also going to start drawing again over the winter months. It's something I've not done for years but really want to get back into.

@Martin-O2 

 

Had my system built (as can't be bothered RMAing parts) by Scan Computers, it's the second system I've bougbt from them and you get exactly what you order so if you are in the market they are definitely worth looking at.

 

I used to know someone who had his own business filming weddings and events as well as video editing and it was really professional stuff and he did it all from his PC setup in his spare room and this was the mid 90s so processors and video processing has moved on leaps and bounds since then.

Re: Things you want to try your hand at

Thanks for the heads up on Scan Computers @techtamer! I'll check them out when I get around to sorting out a new desktop. 

 

At home I only have a very old laptop which is fond of freezing up when performing the most basic operations so even a modest desktop setup would get me started.
