I fell asleep to “Third Ion” both albums

I exercised to “Diemonds” both albums

During my breakfast & currently playing “Royal Blood” both albums.

Probably the coolest video I’ve seen since “Jamiroquai’s” “Virtual Insanity”


4 day week remember!

800 pushups, 560 leg lifts, 400 crunches, 200 tricep pushups, 210 squats, & 160 back flexes.  Yeah I added 10 squats today, just to see if it was possibility.  60 squats a day now.

All of this exercise, I’ve never really looked in the mirror.  My arms & shoulders are bigger than I thought.  Can’t say much about the other parts though.  I’d like to do more squats but I can’t at the moment.

I’m not the picture of health, nor have I ever been.  I’ve got a belly, a furry belly.  My legs are tooth picks too.  I am gaining upper body strength.  I’m sure that underneath the 1 ½” of fat I’ve got some impressive abdominal muscles!

My last few physiotherapies were spent outside & the final day was an obstacle course in the therapy room.  I think we left around noon.  My exercise therapy was done the week before & my occupational therapy was done for the week.

I remember a few of the times outside.  I was walking with my walker, & a bird pooped on my shoulder.  Like mother, like son.  I think my mom has a target on her for birds to aim at?

One of the other times I was outside, my shirt was saturated with sweat.  It was July & HOT outside.  I was drenched!  I likely could have taken my shirt off & gotten a full cup of sweat from it.

I was put on the “fast track” to get out of there.  My therapists would have had to write out a PILE of papers for a new type of therapy sessions.  I would be the only person in that group though, they just kept me going at that pace instead & didn’t bother with the paper work.  They had an outline or a thought for it, but they hadn’t run into a big enough group to implement it.


Kids in the USA make me EXTREMELY proud.  The Florida kids took a bus to Tallahassee, Florida & were denied the request for better gun laws.  No debate by the politicians, just a quick vote.  REALLY?  Nothing as far as guns go.  Just more proof that the gun laws in America are out of whack.

Gun deaths in the USA have gone up 239% since 2004.  The Government should donate the money from the NRA to an anti-gun charity or refuse it completely & work on stronger gun laws. FYI the NRA gives $128,000,000 to the government each year.  Trump’s bright idea as of Thursday is to have teachers learn to use a gun, to protect the students.  What if there’s a mass shooting at a mall, movie theater, or any place other than a school?

Yes, Ted Nugent is near the top of the NRA.  I don’t listen to Ted Nugent.  Don’t we all want someone with the nick name “the motor city mad man” to be one of the top NRA people?  I watch too much CNN!

These kids are doing more than politicians are willing to do, they are my heroes!  Sad that people have called them out as actors.  Who woke up for school & thought “Do I go with this T-Shirt today, or my bullet proof vest?”



I’ll rank the “Lamb of God” albums myself.  Everyone will have different opinion or might not like them at all!


So “The Smashing Pumpkins” are reuniting without bassist D’Arcy Wretzkey.  Is this really a serious issue?


My parents had “Purple Rain” when I was a wee lad.  After the Chipmunks, mini-pops, Raffi, Sharon, Lois, & Bram, & other kids music.  I really liked “Prince” along with the “Lawrence Welk Show” that I’d get up early on the weekends to watch.  Eventually it was “Prince’s” music that caught me first.  Yes I got up early as a kid to watch PBS.

NOT FOR KIDS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My favourite album of his was “Diamonds & Pearls” released in ’91.  I’m not sure who bought it for me, but I had this album on cassette.


Thank Goodness they’re not done yet!
