Moved

I apologize, heartily, for being away so long here. Life got in the way for several months as it sometimes does. I am moving this to a new site and new hosting service. My aim is to continue on with what is here and also to build this out as a community for all. This […]

Join The Grotto – Win a Website! (*limitations below)

*I will be installing a members extension on The Grotto very soon. Why? Because we all walk. I think it quite evident (as I walk almost daily) that you love walking also.

Opinion/Review

Walking means shoes and socks. It also begs a question: Which shoes and socks? For that matter, which shoes and socks are the best? Well, I suppose that is an individual preference. We may also suppose that it has everything to do with the way one’s foot is built. Regular, wide or narrow. The problem […]
