as far as i know:
1. listening music with Soundcloud on phone: create an account, create password, then u can listen music, like, repost.
Soundcloud will send u an email for u to activate yr a/c if u want editing. then,
2. edit profile: log into Soundcloud site with desktop computer (better), enter password. there u can do all editing like uploading pics n musics.

It was a fairly big operation on my foot to remove a bunion and smooth off the bone because of my Osteoporosis. It feels extremely painful! My pusskins have been great and given me lots of love while I've been on bed rest. Glad to be back and thank you for your message. :)

Bubba i hope yr pain has totally faded.

i learnt fr web that 2 ways to relieve pain:
1. laughter. even fake laughter can cheat our brain. of course true laughter is better.
2. swearing bad language.

i used (1) over the years.
3 yrs ago i had an accident that my left arm was broken (legs hurt too, since then i need to walk with a stick). recovery was bad: radius bone became shorter that made ulna crooked. after 3 months wrist still couldnt twist. i consulted a private physio. every time the therapist helped to twist my wrist, my tears burst out. then i found laughing out loud relieve my painful feeling. very soon i didnt need an anodyne at all in trearment. finally my wrist range reach back to about 60%. i used to play accoustic guitar, but with such range is not wide enough to press a barred chord. after resting for 1 yr, i started to play electric because its more fit to carry n easier to hold strings.

whether in pain or not, laugh n smile is good to our health. keep a smiling face, nothing can beat us down my friend ;)

To be honest while on bedrest I did more No.2 than No.1 you can ask Sandie!! But since being back I'm back to my old self so more No.1 :) Now the bandage and plaster is off my foot though the stitches are dissolvable so they are still pulling a little I'm trying to move about more which is making me smile more! :)

I use music when my pain is bad. I use it to take me to a different level. Sort of above the pain. Usually classical. I concentrate on the strings, percussion etc. and by doing this tune out of the pain. I suppose it is a bit like meditation. It's very useful at night when the silence and dark seem to amplify pain. I guess any genre would work. Does not always work and takes practise and concentration but can be a useful tool. Also swearing helps, I swear. The air is blue. I actually tell the pain to go away but rather more succintly. The initial letter should be a consanant- a hard one. Not recommended for those with partners or children!

I love music! I have different songs for different moods. I can't even think how many tracks tracks I have on my Amazon music player and I have 2 cupboards full and I mean full of C.D's!! Anything from Elton John to Black eyed pea's!!

We really enjoy Southwestern Indian art. This is my favorite piece purchased at the Navajo Friendship Center on The Navajo Reservation in Arizona. This piece is not of Navajo origin but rather from the Laguna Pueblo in New Mexico.
The first photo shows a depiction of the Kokopelli, a very popular icon of all the Southwestern Indian tribes. Kokopelli is called the water-bearer, he makes the rains come, also a fertility symbol. These tribes all live in arid landscapes so summer rains are very important to them in raising corn, beans and squash. The opposite side of the pot depicts the popular Corn Priest, also very important to all these people as he is also said to bring rain. This pot is made with the traditional coil and scrape method whereby a coil of clay is continuously added to build up the pot then scraped smooth. Now, many potters are turning to potters wheels which is easier and faster. The the pot is fired in a dried manure fire until it is uniformly black. (I don't know how the red band at the top is done.) Afterward the surface is excised to reveal only the black designs shown.

You see the rectangle box on the bottom that the word 'Attachments' is next to it. You press 'add file' choose your photo click that and submit and it should come up. If not it's better explained in the user guide that you see in the blue box.

On the left is a carved contemporary Navajo kachina call a Sunface. The carving is crafted from cottonwood root, Kachinas are used to teach children Navajo culture and beliefs and as a visual reminder of tribal culture.

On the left is a glazed tile of the style common to the B.C. Haida and north coast natives. It is a depiction what we would call a Killer Whale pursuing its dinner of fat salmon. Quite an action scene don't you think? :) Most north coast art is centered around animals.
