Am interested in your report on the non-tangle hose, Babe. Just saw an infomercial about it today.

Packages are so much harder to open than they used to be. I was looking at those hoses too. Hope it works well for you! :)

IT was still noisy. Lots of banging and whirring and other assorted noises. They were not really an issue.

That one is a lot more modern that the one I was in

Mine was not totally enlcosed though and it was very roomy...I certainly dont think it was like the older ones Addie, as my mum has been in this newer one and an older type and she said these ones were not claustrophobic at all...so that is good

Andy, were you given headphones?

Yes. I was asked what kind of music I wanted. I chose classical as it's soothing. Sadly, it wasn't loud enough to be heard over the thumping.

try orff's "o fortuna" from "carmina burana" next time. or wagner's "ride of the valkyrie" from the ring (i can't recall which one), or tchaikovsky's "1812 overture".

+1

"Hall of the Mountain King" would work too. Or "The Anvil Chorus."
