Wow, nudewalker! Politics and religion all in one post!  ;D

As with a great many forums, those two discussions are discouraged here, but it certainly is understandable as many of the issues with how nudity is viewed and dealt with in society stem from both of those arenas.

I have no desire to gin-up a discussion on either, but I will say that many people make the mistake of trying to canonize their personal beliefs into their religion when no such law or belief exists within the structure of the faith.

It creates many of the problems we see, not only those regarding nudity.

Is that one of those UK things that has to be translated across the pond?  :)

It's like tiptoe through a field of jumpin' cholla in a windstorm, while barefoot all over, round here! Good job my fellows.

It seems that the fundamentalist element of the Muslims is seen more in the populated areas of the country. In my neck of the woods there are the same fundamentalists only they say they are Christian.


Around here the Jesus folks have been attacking coffee places with bare nipple baristas.   The concept of tolerance is beyond them.

How and why the Muslim's have a free pass so to speak when other non-Christian faiths or beliefs have been attacked is beyond me.

MONEY.   Muslims have big money organizations and governments pushing their agendas.

My problem with photo id is that when being photographed I don't have a 'best side', they are both equally hideous! :D

I sometimes get requests for a view of my best side.

Duane, you have unfortunately reminded me of a notice which I have seen in many pubs.
Everybody brings joy to this house:
Some when they enter,
Others when they leave.

I have to say, JOhn you often look quite deeply serious and concentrated on your tasks in your videos and stills.
Maybe that's your trademark.

BTW are you afloat currently and if so where?

After so many reports by you on your canal travels, JOhn, something has finally percolated through the brain.

A. Do you own the Ernest (your boat)?
B. Where do you keep her?

Here on Lake Mead we have substantial marinas for boat owners to moor their craft. Do you have a similar set up? Being on a canal, which doesn't sound like there is a lot of room to maneuver, how do they dock the boats?

This only now occurred to me, after how many years?

Ernest is my boat and it is moored in Droitwich Spa Marina which is featured in this YouTube video (link). Ernest's bow can just be glimpsed over Nick Parkes's right shoulder 1 minute into the video.
Before this is was moored at St.Pancras Cruising Club who used the former coal basin at St.Pancras station in London.


Ernest is moored alongside the railway  the railway.

The marina at Droitwich is roomy, but that one next to the railroad looks like a carpark in a downtown area. Very cramped.

In all your boating nude have you met any others of the same inclination.
Is there a nude boating contingent, albeit unorganized?
