I fell asleep to “Lacuna Coil” the album “Delirium” that was released on Friday.
I exercised to “Simon & Garfunkel” I recorded the PBS airing of their “Concert in Central Park”. I heard my favourite S & G song. I also heard a song that was exclusively a Paul Simon song?
I accomplished what I wanted to, but I didn’t have the energy to do more aka I was a little disappointed. Maybe tomorrow I’ll be able to do more?

I did not get to my exercising ASAP today. I came out to the living room at about 7:35 am & Brewster had peed in the middle of the room. Some dark clouds in this area, he gets an anxiety attack when that’s around. Great way to start the week! Clean up dog urine……….YAY!
This was all brought on by the post from Rolling Stone with Neil Young speaking out against GMOs on Stephen Colbert’s show. There was quite the discussion about this on the facebook page. I voiced my opinion & left it alone. Everybody is entitled to their own opinion. I’m not here to stir the pot!
I’m all in for GMOs in my food. I was born in January of 1980, I don’t know a world without them. Sure, I was always sick with a cold, flu, or an ear infection & then I had cancer. Did GMOs cause any of that illness? I’d likely know a majority of people who were diagnosed with stage 4 brain cancer because of GMOs. I can tell you honestly that I’ve been ill with a cold or flu 5-8 times since I left the Wascana Rehabilitation Center on Thursday, July 26th 2012. Even if you grow your food in your garden, the seed has likely been modified?
The fast food franchise A & W has been advertising that their beef contains no steroids or hormones and that their chicken contains no antibiotics. Great, good for them! If any chicken or cow gets sick, I’m guessing it’s a death sentence for no reason at all then? Dairy cows & cows raised for beef are fed very different food & there is a very noticeable difference in taste. So if a cow is being raised for it’s meat & becomes sick they’ll likely kill it for no reason or if it’s young enough the farmer will fill it with medicine & send it to a dairy farm?
All of this being said, I’m not a farmer, scientist, or the smartest person in the world. In the end all I’m saying is I don’t know a world without GMOs, so I really don’t care. I’m alive & GMOs likely had nothing to do with my cancer. If all of a sudden we’re only allowed non-GMO food & it tastes different or doesn’t keep fresh for as long in the fridge or pantry, then I’ll speak out about my disappointment with whoever makes that decision.
Remember, Jenny McCarthy was against vaccinations saying they caused autism, & a TON of people agreed with what she said & were later told she was wrong. Nobody thought to check with their family doctor because a celebrity said it? I hope people speak with a farmer or scientist on the GMO issue & not just slough it off saying “Well Neil Young says they’re bad, I’ll go with that”. I think he said 38 countries have banned the use of GMOs? That’s a fairly small fraction of countries in the world?
This is just me backing my opinion aka I don’t know any better, but I’m going with this. It’s 1:43:01 but watch it, & please tell me what you think of it? I can respect your opinion & I wont be throwing around any names! Someone disagreed with me on the Rolling Stone facebook page & called me a name so I replied with “Calm down. You have your opinion & I have mine. They’re different & that’s OK with me. Calling me “Thick” wont solve anything” & I’ll likely never hear from whoever it was again. I would just like some feedback on any topic on this site? Everything on here is meant to be interactive. Comment on Facebook or on the website, however you like?
It was another weekend of music for me when Kim was out shopping or when she was here I’d put on something we’d both enjoy.
Halestorm, Ben Harper, Jack Johnson, Tremonti, & some other stuff.
Last Week Tonight with John Oliver
Bono of U2 joins Bruce Springsteen on stage in Dublin
Questlove on Prince being the pioneer for Hip-Hop music.
Soundgarden shared this song from the album “King Animal”
Facebook is still not as busy as it was last year. The afternoons are really quiet. I write the first few paragraphs regarding the topic ASAP, if something comes to mind. I also “…begin…” grabbing some news for the next day’s post.
Members of Disturbed & Sixx AM join on stage. LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don’t like the covers Disturbed does. I was a fan of Disturbed in my early 20s, not now though.
Pearl Jam doing covers, I’m good with that.
I like getting up early so I can get stuff done & out of the way so I don’t have to squeeze it in later or have it on my mind. Especially when my exercise mat is judging me from a distance. I weighed myself the other day, I’m still at 240 but my belly is getting smaller than I thought it was. I’m assuming I’m heavy from muscle gain? I don’t look obese at all. Only when I’m sitting down. I weighed myself by using my transfer pole for balance only, my hands were open at the time. The photo of me playing guitar in a white T-Shirt with my brother was taken before I knew I had cancer, I’m roughly 265.
