Don, get a set of those cheap rubber mats to put on the floor by your lathe.  They help a LOT.

Thanks Jim; I actually built myself a little platform out of particle board, some 2x2s, and an old carpet scrap. It spans the entire area in front of my lathe and my bandsaw sits on the other side. This gets me up a couple inches for a better height for turning, cushions the concrete slab, and keeps my feet a bit warmer.
