Re: Taking your shoes off!

TB, I somewhat agree with you that there are more small businesses that would appreciate you removing your shoes (but are OK when you don't), such as my travel agents office.

I have had back problems for many years and have found that this helps a lot and if needed do as BKKStan sugests and get some musle relaxers. But make sure you get from a doctor who is aware ...
