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

Music throughout the weekend.  “Nickleback”, “Nothing but Thieves”, “Led Zeppelin”


Little story first.  The first band I played & sang with was 4 of us taking Engineering in the U of R.  I had already dropped out of university & went to S.I.A.S.T. to take the Graphic Arts Production class.

In 2002 we played “Beerfest”, a cabaret put on by the Engineering student society.  500 people, the biggest crowd I’d ever played to & likely the biggest crowd I’ll ever play to.

We finished one of our 3 sets with the song “Enter Sandman” by Metallica.  I introduced it as old Metallica.  The song was 11 years old at that point.

We got off stage & I was making my way to the back of the room to see some of my friends.  I was stopped along the way by an angry guy that wanted to beat the crap out of me for saying “Old Metallica”.  I didn’t fight him.

I know that wasn’t what devoted Metallica fans would call “Old Metallica”.  “Old Metallica” would be the first 4 albums, not the 5th album though.  I told him to “Chill out, it’s 11 years old”.  I walked past him as his friend was holding him back.

We stayed in Friday night.  Kim was working until 6:00 pm.  She brought home 2 salads from “Chopped Leaf” for supper.  I was part way through the Blue Jays game.  We stopped that ASAP to turn on “The Ellen Degeneres Show” as usual.  I watched the end of the game, another losing effort.

I’m watching this year to see who could make it on to the 25 man roster next year.  The team this year is mostly made up of rookies or young (20-28) year olds.  This is a rebuilding year with players from the minor league system coming up to the big league.

We rented a movie from iTunes.  Kim picked what was a great movie, “The Upside”

We were at my parents’ place for Saturday afternoon & a bit of the evening.  Mom made friends with a massage therapist in Winnipeg.  I guess she comes to Regina on occasion.  She REALLY got my shoulder to loosen up.  I haven’t felt that relaxed in decades.  She’s heading here in June again, I will definitely get another treatment!

We came home grabbed a wrap at “Tim Hortons” for supper & I made my vegetable juice for the week.

Today Kim got up to go for a run.  We then went to see our “niece” play at her first piano recital.  We’re now about boil some eggs & finish the laundry.

I feel as though I’ve hit a wall.  I’m extremely exhausted physically.  I’ll see how I feel tomorrow & decide if I should do my exercises or just hang out tomorrow?


I don’t think this will be my favourite summer?  All of these AWESOME albums are supposed to be released this year, which is great!  My fear is that they will be released within 3 weeks of each other.  To add to that the man who shall not be named in the White House has gone rogue & doing whatever he wants.  Even here in Canada I’m leery at best.

Never thought I’d do it, but I bought the latest “Nickleback” album.  It has a few “Arena rock” songs & some other songs that lean more towards a metal vibe.

A fan covering “Stone Temple Pilots” on piano.  WOW!

Guitar shaped building!


15 years ago May 25th “Slipknot” released “Vol.3 The Subliminal Verses”


Trump got praise on twitter from John Voight





She just released a new album on April 26th.  I love it just as much as previous release “Beautiful Trauma” which is very addictive to me.  This new album is titled “Hard 2B Human” & it’s very good also.




The more you share this, the more readers I get.  No, I’m not profiting from this in any way.  I can’t tell who’s reading this but thank you! Word of mouth is the only way of promoting this.

    • You would like the posts to be longer? I could possibly do that but I’ve also been told they’re already too long. I will certainly take it into consideration. Thanks for your comment!
