Ok so I had to drive over to where I lived ages ago. I guess I'll post pics here. Excuse the quantity but I thought American folk might find some old buildings interesting. Most are the Cathedral, some Georgian buildings, there's a place called 'Jews House' that claims to be the oldest occupied building in the Uk but some places in Nottingham claim that too, but basically late 1300's. Anyway, a bunch of old buildings in Lincoln....
Wooowzas! That's beyond wondermus James!! You've gotta natural eye for composition too It looks crazy populated there. Lots of folk out and about and those buildings are to die for. Thank you so much for sharing!!
After seeing all those purdy pics I started thinking about the shit architecture we have around here... Bama is abundant in nature (which is super cool and where I spend most my time) but we have nothing close to what you Europeans have in buildings. This guy in the vids below was a bud in high school. His music vid is set in ma home town. Sooo sad..The underbelly if you will is exposed in the footage. Lots of impoverished places, kinda bumming me out.
Up until the late 50's a lot of southern towns here remained bombed out rubble from WWII, and the development of places in the 1960's-70's, were what was seen as modern but now so many places have horrible concrete buildings from that era and it is really a glum sight. But London's so interesting when you have a 15 th century building next to a modern glass arty structure. There is no pattern to the streets, it's like spilt spaghetti, one moment you are walking past a Victorian gin house, next corner is a glass spaceship of a building. The pictures I took are from Lincoln but Lincolnshire basically looks like this ( I took a pic driving.. Bad me) flat and just fields.

chesh: Hey rye, under the "Dreadlock FAQ" >>> "The Basics" there is information on washing on the bottom. In my experience so far it has been best to wash my dreads when they get itchy and use a dry shampoo to help with the oils that are produced naturally.

SketchyMagpie: Hey. It differs on hair type but generally speaking, you can lose up to between 25-50% of the length. Most people will be around the 25%-35% mark, ish.

FriendlyGoblin: Hey guys, I'm thinking of getting dreadlocks and I was wondering how much they'd shrink. I have medium-thick hair that is decently damaged and is 20" thick from scalp to tip. I'm also white. I'm thinking of getting them so they're life sized ruler

littl3birdy: Hey nessdeyali , bumps and loops are part of the process. Combing out the dreads and restarting will just lead to the same result. Check out some of the timelines here and you will see lots of bumps.
