Re: Crossfit minded drink? Xblade?

I use an Omron HBF-306, about 4/5 years old. And a Taylor 5578 scale I bought a couple months ago. I used an unknown one at my gym...

Re: From Japan With Love: An English Teacher-cum-Firefighter Hopeful

True dat.

How about juggling the offers? Should I mention that I've received offers elsewhere? Or that I will probably be accepting another job if one is only a few nights a week? I'll already tell...
