I fell asleep to “Our Lady Peace” the album “Happiness is not a Fish that you can Catch”, “The Tragically Hip” the album “Trouble at the Hen House”, “Led Zeppelin” the album “Physical Graffiti”, & finally “Dream Theater” the album “Black Clouds & Silver Linings”
I exercised in silence today. I’ve been having issues with my iTunes library, but may have it fixed today, I hope. The guy I’ve been dealing with in the Apple customer service is FANTASTIC! I’ve never been this impressed by any customer service person! I’ve been working with him & the engineers at Apple for about a month. He’ll call me out of the blue just to let me know he’s still working on my case.
500 pushups, 500 crunches, 500 leg lifts, 200 back flexes, 100 triceps pushups. I achieved all of my exercise goals this week. That always puts a smile on my face!
I could use a smile this week. I’m getting stronger physically, which means I’m able to help out around the house more. Kim is working herself way too hard, work & exercise for her boxing charity. I try to get as much as possible done before she gets home, dishes, dishwasher, cooking, cleaning, etc. Trying to do regular stuff at top speed gets me extremely stressed out! By 3:00 pm I’m very hot/sweaty & tired. I can’t tell you why or what I’m stressing out about, but I am. Mostly it feels like there isn’t enough time in the day.
The reason I’m in a wheelchair is because I cannot walk without something to hold on to. My legs work, I can get into our walk in shower after I carry my shower seat in there, I can walk with a chest high walker, I can reach the top shelf of our pantry by using the door frame to stand up, etc. Our place has grab bars in each bathroom, & I have transfer polls I use to sit on the couch & to get into bed.
I don’t know if it’s because I’m getting older or just because I’m doing more stuff now that I’m able to?
November 11th is Remembrance Day in Canada. A day when we take a moment to honour, thank, & remember previous veterans & current soldiers keeping us safe. I think this year is what us forgotten Canadians really need!
THANK YOU TO ALL WHO CONTINUE TO KEEP US SAFE & THANK YOU TO THE VETERANS & THOSE WHO HAVE LOST THEIR LIVES KEEPING US SAFE!
THAT’S ALL FOR THE CANCER TALK FOR NOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
This type of thing should happen at every public event!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can’t tell you how onboard I am with this!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Right at the door someone should send anyone with a cell phone back to their vehicle. It happened to me years ago, & made total sense! I had it turned off anyways. You have to turn it off in a movie theater, why not a concert. Have some self-control. Take a picture & a video of your favourite song, then put your phone away. If you can’t do that, leave it in your vehicle or at home.
No, I don’t listen to Marilyn Manson, but he makes a valid point here.
Paramore is actually selling cassettes online, odd.
When the Toronto Blue Jays start spring training I have a wish list for the team. 3 new everyday outfielders, new everyday short stop, and possible new 2nd baseman. 1st base, 3rd base, & DH can & should remain the same. Biagini, Osuna, Tepera, & Ramirez all in the bullpen with others. Estrada, Stroman, Sanchez, & Happ as starting pitchers. If all of this is possible that would be great! Any of the new players should have speed, bat left handed, & have a good batting average & on base percentage. Mr. Atkins & Mr. Shapiro, please don’t put the fans through another 2017?
When Corey McDonald started SIAST shortly after me. He showed me the path to what is now my favourite “Soundgarden” album “Badmotorfinger”. I pulled out the “Superunknown” album, & Corey asked if I had heard “Badmotorfinger”, I hadn’t, so he lent it to me the next day. Since then that album it’s my go to “Soundgarden” album.
After hearing that album once, I was hooked & bought it ASAP. Corey then opened my eyes to “Pantera” & I got hooked on “Into Eternity” the album “Buried in Oblivion”
This was in the early 2000s. I started SIAST in September of 2001, my 2nd week was when 9/11 happened.
I’m not crazy, someone else just praised “Batman vs. Superman”! Others have seen “Justice League” & found it to be the best movie in the DC universe!
I have “Thor Ragnarok”, “Justice League”, & “Star Wars VIII” to see. I see good times ahead!
Nooooooooooooooooo!!!!!! This is MY dark side of Rush. Foo Fighters & audience fan. LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
