Do you have a question about stage 4 brain cancer?  Ask if you do!

I fell asleep to “Queens of the Stone Age” the album “Lullabies to Paralyze”, followed by “Royal Blood” the album “How did we get so Dark?”

I exercised to “Candlebox” the album “Into the Sun”


5 day exercise total; 400 pushups, 600 leg lifts, 300 crunches, 200 tricep lifts, 450  squats, 300 back flexes, & some walking this week.

I don’t know why, but Wednesday I was extremely tired?  I’m guessing it’s likely because I got up at 7:30 am, after going to bed around 11:15 pm the night before.  I got up & did my exercises, had breakfast, then showered before we left to see the doctor at 10:30 am.  I ended up being ready to go with an hour to wait until we left.

I didn’t really get to rest between my sets of the 4 exercises on Wednesday.  I was rushing through everything, because I didn’t want to be late for the appointment.

My exercises tires me out on a normal day, not taking a full minute of rest between sets made me over tired.  When I got home, I made my lunch & stretched out on the couch.  I fell asleep for 20 minutes or so listening to “Flatlined” from Ontario.

We played shows with them as they toured across Canada a few times.  Great band & great people.  Whenever they came to Regina, we’d play a show with them.  Even when I was diagnosed with cancer, they made a point of coming to the hospital to see me in 2008.  Great band that didn’t get the recognition they deserved!


A TON of mutual respect between our bands.


I was REALLY psyched to see “Into Eternity” on April 20th but alas that is Easter weekend among a few other responsibilities.


Apple has banned any & every non-iTunes or non-Apple Music purchase from being on their music player at the end of March.  If you don’t buy or stream your music from Apple music or iTunes, they will take it away.  This will bite them in the butt!  I’m 39 years old.  My entire life I’ve been allowed to trade cassettes, CDs, & vinyl with no issue.  I’ll continue to purchase music from iTunes, since my 160 gb iPod still works & I use it daily.

I’ll still be able to order a CD from www.amazon.ca , I’ll also be able to purchase a CD & support the artist at a show.  It feels a lot like Apple is making up the rules as we go along.  With this type of decision making the President might have a job after politics!

Won’t this be very close to creating a monopoly for Apple as far as actually downloading music?  If so, I’m jumping off the Apple bandwagon, if possible.  Great move in theory, not in reality though!

What should Apple do?  I’ve got 7 CDs that are not on Apple Music or iTunes, put EVERYTHING on Apple Music & iTunes.  They’re either out of print or the group didn’t become popular enough for Apple to acknowledge them?  From now on I guess it will have to be from Apple or CD for any other player.

When my iPod dies, I’m thinking about sending it in for the 128 GB iPod Touch & switching to a different player & using Kim’s 1st generation iPhone for it, no the number will not be activated!

Toronto Blue Jays preseason ends on Tuesday after 4 televised games starting tomorrow.  A day off on Wednesday, then the regular season starts on Thursday!  Very young team, this season will likely be full of “growing pains”

You’re welcome!!!
