  • I need advise on MP3 players suitable to wear whilst running.?

    I used to have a small MP3 player that I could clip to my clothing when I went jogging. It was about the size of a small matchbox and weighed virtually nothing. I could upload songs to it from ITunes. That is no long gone and I have been trying to find something similar but all I can find in the shops are devices that require a bluetooth connection... show more
    I used to have a small MP3 player that I could clip to my clothing when I went jogging. It was about the size of a small matchbox and weighed virtually nothing. I could upload songs to it from ITunes. That is no long gone and I have been trying to find something similar but all I can find in the shops are devices that require a bluetooth connection to my Iphone and I do not want to take my phone jogging with me. Can anyone recommend something that works in the same was as my old MP3 player? Thanks

    Every address in France that I come across in work always includes the work CEDEX. What does this mean? Does it matter if you exclude it when you write the address on an envelope?

    I think I can remember how it goes. Rocky's son has just been berating him because he has agreed to do an exhibition boxing match at the age of about 60. His son is fed up of people regarding him in terms of his famous father and he believes that this event is only going to compound that problem. Rocky says a few tender words about when watching the boy grow from a baby to a man and then he breaks into the main part of the speech: "Let me tell you something you already know. The world ain’t all sunshine and rainbows. It’s a very mean and nasty place and I don’t care how tough you are it will beat you to your knees and keep you there permanently if you let it. You, me, or nobody is gonna hit as hard as life. But it ain’t about how hard you hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. How much you can take and keep moving forward. That’s how winning is done! Now if you know what you’re worth then go out and get what you’re worth. But you gotta be willing to take the hits, and not pointing fingers saying you ain’t where you wanna be because of him, or her, or anybody! Cowards do that and that ain’t you! You’re better than that!"
