Pay Attention! The French Are Not Rude!

In June of 2007 Mrs. Winer and I retired.

When one achieves a milestone, rewards equal to the accomplishment should be given. So on Sept 9, 2007 Mrs. Winer and I arrived in Paris France. For the next 24 days we enjoyed ourselves more than should be allowed by law. We choose this time of the year mainly because it is the ending of the tourist season but before the nasty winter weather. Instead of getting accommodations in downtown Paris, we chose a small comfortable hotel in Maison-Laffitte (ML). The town is about 20 minutes by the REI A line red train north of Paris.

While at times it was a bit inconvenient since we spent the bulk of our waking hours in Paris, it afforded us what we wanted: a quiet refuge from the hectic Paris life. We also love the interaction that comes from repeated visits to a restaurant. Mrs. Winer and I are food junkies. I am the journaler and have a record of all the food we ate, where we ate it and the wines we drank.

After arriving in ML and getting situated I left Mrs. Winer resting and went to a recon mission. The objective was to find a small restaurant that would reflect the cuisine of this area of France. Found it. L’Olivier on Avenue de Saint Germain. Talk about hitting the jackpot. Olivier the owner was the waiter, the maittredi, the floor sweeper and sommelier. The restaurant was very cozy with tables for about 20 patrons. (At another time I will tell you a couple of wonderful experiences we had in Olivier’s.) Suffice to say that we loved the restaurant. We actually ate our way through his entire menu during our stay in ML.

The following day, September 10 was Mrs. Winer’s «39th» Birthday. I really can’t remember what anniversary it was of that auspicious day. It is best forgotten. She wanted to go to the Eiffel Tower. Since the Old Winer hadn’t figured out the subway system we disembarked from the REI train at the Arc de Triumph and meandered through the center of Paris in the general direction of the Eiffel Tower. My navigation skills are quite suspect but since the tower is the tallest item on the horizon we managed to find it. (I’m somewhat of a world traveler.) I’ve seen the Space Needle in Seattle, the arches in the Los Angeles airport, the church of the Blessed Family in Barcelona, and the Grand Canyon so I’m not that easily impressed.

Standing under the Eiffel Tower was impressive. Standing on the top was VERY impressive. Mrs Winer had her birthday lunch in the small café-restaurant located on the second level overlooking the River Seine with its boat traffic and bridges. We then choose (a very weird choice) to walk down the stairs. Mrs. Winer had heard that some famous people had done this and thought it would be a good idea. By the time we got to the ground it was obvious that they were a bit younger than we were. Having climbed a mountain or two in my day, one has learned that going down is actually more difficult than going up. But we made it. That evening for our dinner we went to the supermarket, bought some wonderful French goat cheese, ham, French (what else) bread, an apple, a bottle of 2005 Chateau du Calvaire St Emilion Grand Cru wine for 6 dollars and a bottle of 2005 Domaine St. Antoine Sablet Cotes du Rhone Village for 5 bucks and chocolate for dessert. Brought our purchases to our hotel room and indulged ourselves.

Happy Birthday Mrs. Winer!

At a later time I will tell you about our wondrous 10 days wondering up from Lyon to Paris through the Boujourlais, Burgundy wine country. We smote with vigor the most pernicious error perpetrated by disgruntled travelers: «the French are rude to Americans especially if you can’t speak French.» The French are not rude! I can disgorge my total accumulation of the French language in about 45 seconds. My Spanish is quite good. My English, as you know, somewhat suspect. We ate in small cafes and fancy restaurants in downtown Paris; in tiny places in the mountain of the wine country where English was grade school at best; we talked to wine growers, to people on the streets, etc and I can say that we did not experience a single incident where we felt badly treated by a French person. Will we go back?…you betcha. Right after our trip to Tuscany and Spain.

What Are Men's Tights In The Lingerie World And Is There A Market For Them?

Most people do not know much about men's tights other than the ones worn by Shakespearian actors. They actually do exist. These are not the panty hose that women wear. These tights are designed for a man's unique body proportions. These are made for men who participate in sports to help increase endurance in their legs. These tights are perfect for men who are active in soccer, golf, running, skiing, football, and biking. They have been created to stimulate blood flow and increase circulation to the legs.

Not only do they give a man that streamline effect under his clothing and added support for sports they also provide health benefits as well.

Men can appreciate the extra layer of warmth that tights provide during the cold months of winter. Long johns can be bulky, and ride up under your pant legs, especially under jeans and dress pants. Men's tights are breathable and do not hold in moisture so they can be comfortably worn indoors and won't cause chafing or ingrown hairs. Any true outdoorsman knows that synthetic fibers are the best to hold in heat and repel moisture which makes these tights the perfect choice for hunters. They will leave a man's skin warm and dry instead cold and clammy.

Men's tights can also work to reduce excess heat in hot weather. No more sticking to car seats, furniture, or anything else. You can guarantee that you will be able to stay dry and comfortable no matter how warm it gets. Most men's tights are extremely lightweight without the glossy finish of the women's variety. They usually have a matte finish, reinforced toe and heel to withstand the hard work and sports a man may participate in. The comfort panel in the front of the tights has a manly fly opening for comfort and convenience. The crotch is designed specially for a man's physique and comfort level no matter what his activity level.

For active sports, men's tights will help to keep your body thermo-regulated. You can maintain the same comfort level throughout your workout. Men's tights also create a barrier between the skin and irritating, yet warm, fabrics like wool. For outdoors activities, they provide added protection against the wind as well as ticks and other insects. They will also help reduce the risk of blisters by helping to eliminate friction in your shoes.

The majority of men's tights are very comfortable and work well with any type of clothing; you will barely notice they are there at all. They help clothes fit better and have a smoother look. For men who prefer not to wear socks there is a sheer version that will provide a man with the foot protection he needs while being barely detectable. This will help to keep feet dry and odorless while maintaining the barefoot look. Men's tights are a great way for any man have healthier, more comfortable legs and keep his body temperature regulated all year long.

Soccer Cleats And How To Keep Foot Pain At Bay

Soccer just like any other sporting activity is vigorous and you need to have the right protection for your feet to remain in top shape for your game. To out your best foot forward during a match, you need to have the right gear for the sport and cleats are some of the most important items you need to select considering that most pressure remains on the feet as you engage in the play. Movement types on ground surfaces should all be considered when buying soccer cleats to ensure that performance is maintained at a high.

The truth is that feet have lots of joints and bones as well as ligaments and muscles and this means you can experience pain in lots of different areas too. Foot pain can be on the bottom or the upper part of the foot, heels and toes and others. Severe foot pain or injury can hinder mobility and some of them can actually develop into infections that cause long term disability or damage especially when left untreated. Wrong shoe fit is the biggest culprit when it comes to foot pain.

Types of injuries

The most common foot pain forms resulting from cleats include heel pain such as plantar fasciitis, ankle sprains, Achilles tendon injuries and blisters. Pivoting or having the feet caught when moving to a different direction leads to sprains whereas wearing soccer shoes that are not padded or not well-padded can lead to inflammation that is plantar fasciitis. Blisters also result from ill-fitting shoes that rub onto the foot raw skin.

Prevention tips

1. To keep foot pain caused by cleats at bay, always ensure that you get a proper fitting pair. Know the sizing prior to making the decision and remember to also put your foot type into the picture to get the best fit. For instance, wide feet will require a proper design from the regular soccer shoes.

2. Remember that the material used to make your soccer cleats can have an effect on the fit. Leather tends to stretch after a few years, whereas synthetic materials may not stretch as much. Avoid selecting shoes that make your feet feel cramped and instead think of comfort and stretching possibility.

3. Break-in your soccer cleats before you wear them to a competitive match. The last thing you want to do is try on the new pair in your next big game because it could be pretty uncomfortable.

4. Have any pre-existing conditions checked out and put in measures to avoid more injuries. You might need to treat the injuries before wearing your cleats and this can easily be done by keeping feet elevated, using ice packs on the areas and using a compression bandage to reduce any swelling. Blisters should remain covered to prevent irritations and infections.

5. Choose soccer cleats designed for comfort and control. Check out the padding, the heel, the cleats and even the uppers. The design and selection of materials should all be inclined in keeping your feet comfortable and protected.

"Hands-Up-To-The-Sky" – Ricardo Kaka Biography

Kaka Biography – Introduction

I’m writing this Kaka biography a few weeks after the 2006/2007 Champions League final, a final ending with a happy result, 2-1 for the Brazilian’s team, AC Milan against England’s Liverpool.

I must say, as impressive as Filippo Inzaghi (who scored both AC Milan’s goals) was, my eyes were focused on the Brazilian Kaka throughout the entire match. His passes, his dribblings, his speed and his vision on the pitch were honey to my eyes.

I decided to write this Kaka biography not because the Brazilian needs it, but because I want you to find out who the real Ricardo Kaka is, how he rose up the ladders of his career before being a super star and what exactly does that «hands-up-to-the-sky» kaka celebration mean.

Kaka Biography – Early Career

After spending his early days at different youth clubs around his home town of Brasilia and Sao Paulo, Kaka was eventually offered a professional contract at a very tender age: seventeen.

Since Kaka played great soccer for Sao Paulo’s youth teams, the reserve team and the Brazilian U-17 national squad, he immediately attracted the eyes of several European clubs, the one coming forward first being Turkish side Gaziantepspor.

Sao Paulo agreed to sell Kaka, for a sum of $1.5m, a sum that, if you think of the player’s market value now, would seem like peanuts. Still, the sum was quite big for the Turkish side, especially for a 17-year old footballer, Kaka’s young age giving them no guarantees that he will turn out to play great soccer regularly on professional level.

Kaka Biography – Swimming Pool Incident Sao Paulo FC

In his first season as a professional player for Sao Paulo, Kaka didn’t play for the Brazilian team, but he used this time to accommodate himself with his new colleagues and the hardships of professional soccer in Brazil.

He was probably going to get his debut that season still, but an unfortunate swimming pool incident almost ended his career as a footballer, Kaka fracturing his spine in September 2000. Not only did he risk his future, but this fracture almost cost him his life and he was in real danger of being paralyzed for the rest of his life.

Miraculously, Kaka made a full recovery and came back to training after his full strength came back to him. From that day forward, Kaka found faith in God and some of his profits as a professional footballer always go to the Church, as a small gesture of thanking God for saving his life and his career. The famous Kaka celebration, after he scores a goal, is related to that incident, as each time, he thanks God for allowing him to play soccer and be there on the pitch.

Kaka Biography – Attracting the European Giants

After fully recovering from his horrible fracture, Kaka was finally given a chance to play for Sao Paulo, in January 2001 and he didn’t disappoint, scoring no less than 12 goals in 27 appearances that season. This guaranteed him a solid first team place for the 2001-2002 season, in which he scored another 10 goals in 22 matches and whenever a young Brazilian soccer player performs that well, he’s bound to get a few calls from some major European clubs.

One of these clubs would be AC Milan, one of Italy’s most important teams and Kaka signed without blinking, eager to start a European career.

You probably know the story from here. Kaka is currently in his fourth season with Milan, whom he won the Serie A championship with once, the Italian Super Cup once, and the UEFA Champions League a few weeks ago (he also played another Champions League final in the 2004-2005 season, but lost it to Liverpool in what is considered one of the most beautiful finals of the tournament). He became an indispensable player for AC Milan but also for Brazil.

As a Brazil soccer player, Kaka scored 31 goals in 52 matches so far and gave out numerous perfect assists in his role as an attacking midfielder. Having the young midfielder in the squad, Brazil football became even more technical and quick (if that was even possible) and they’re considered amongst the main favorites for the following international tournaments.
