“In Flanders Field”

I hope all of the Canadians out there are wearing their poppies!

This is how Canada thanks the veterans in November. If I could I’d wear a poppy year ’round but then it wouldn’t mean as much. If you get a month for breast cancer & Movember for men’s cancer. Why not an entire month wearing a poppy? Equally as important? Instead we wear a poppy from November 1st to the 11th no poppies tomorrow. Either way, THANK YOU to those that have died protecting our country!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I went to a beer tasting last night with my dad at the Willow Park liquor store. Yes I wore my poppy! 18 steps up to the tasting area. Probably sampled 20+ different flavours/brands of beer. $25.00 come sample beer for an hour & a half. Then get 5% off with your ticket of whatever you want in the store. It’s not a huge place like the Calgary location, but there are different brands & flavours I’ve never had! We didn’t drive to or from the beer tasting. Kim & my mom dropped us off & my brother picked us up & helped me down the stairs. No, I wasn’t launched off the top step in my wheelchair!

Do I care if I see a “moon” onstage? As long as I don’t see any other nudity that’s fine with me!

I’m hopeful to see Trivium, who I’ve seen 3 times but twice with technical issues, in Saskatoon as well as Lamb of God, who I’ve seen once!

I Mother Earth’s facebook status

“BLOSSOM is #1 most added track at rock radio!! Thanks to everybody for giving the song a chance!! Let’s get requesting and push it over the top! Every bit of effort is helping this endeavour that we are now all on together!”

“Royal Blood” signed vinyl & CD. I REALLY like this album, it’s FANTASTIC!!!!!!

Songs I like, “Third Ion” The most delicate/weird but good metal I have ever heard. When the album kicks off with a “Mega Man” song from the original Nintendo/NES, you know you’re in for a weird ride!! Yes, Justin Bender, guitarist, is a former member of “Into Eternity”. Both “Into Eternity” & “Third Ion” are Regina based bands.

If you’re getting this on Facebook, please share it?
