    Excellent! Rich, you're a kick in the butt.

    For some one who has "done a lot of research" he certainly knows a "bunch of stuff".
    I dont claim to know a lot, but the picture at the start didnt impress me at all.............

    Thanks for the post cuttlechris!

    I am not sure I understand what you mean. Is holding my daughter upside down while she giggles her butt off a bad thing?

    That's a shame. I thought it was great, and accurate, having met them both. :smile:

    No worries - I just wanted to know what you saw as not good. :grin:
    That photo has gotten a similar reaction before until people look at it upside down.

    The skull shot though, that was just weird. She really wanted to touch them, but we said no, but the local said 'of course'!

    Both pictures are awesome. Congrats on the interview, Thales! Nice coverage. Wish I (or someone) still had the time / inclination for the Octopodcast, those have the potential to be fun.

    Great Photos and a great interview.

    When I first saw the photo in the interview, it almost looked like you were getting ready to launch her into the next county with a punch, but after viewing it upside down I can see the giggles, must be some kind of optical illusion for some of us.

    I did a double take on the photo too. I have to admit the fist at face level had a fist glance impact. Having been a member for several years and reading (and hearing) some of your super family adverntures, I knew it was all in fun but the initial impression is there.

    No problem Thales. I really enjoyed listening about starting out into the hobby. It seems like everyone has a horrible first attempt.

    HAHA.. I love reading the comments. Especially “Either I get the matching slippers or the kid gets it in the head!” Funny, Funny.....

    When my girls and I had our Black Belt pics taken, the photographer had me lay down so they could "Karate chop" me- we played along even though we did Tae Kwon Do. Anyway, if you weren't at the photo shoot, you could have gotten a mistaken impression of the proofs. Also they didn't turn out as cool as it seemed like they would. I like the upside- down shot, though!
