I fell asleep to “Ed Sheeran” the album “Divide”

I exercised to “Metallica” the new album “Hardwired……………….to Self-Destruct”

 

400 leg lifts, 160 pushups, planking, yoga, 200 crunches & 80 back flexes this past week.

That’s 100 leg lifts, 40 pushups, 20 back flexes, planking, 100 crunches & yoga 5 days a week.  First thing I do when I leave the bedroom, then breakfast & a shower.

I just added the crunches on Thursday, 100 crunches a day.  The crunches had nothing to do with my back!  I know what caused it, I’ve had back issues since high school.  My wheelchair seat was over inflated & the squats always hurt my back a bit.  So I’m going to continue doing 100 crunches a day.  I could also just twist in my seat to borrow a pen & my back would go out?  That’s what happened in grade 10?

Kim had Wednesday off, so I took it off too.  I got in the shower while she went out to get coffees & cinnamon buns.  We sat on the balcony before it got too warm.  I can’t get out there in my wheelchair.  Kim has to help me, or I can crawl out if needed.  Came inside watched a bit of TV.  Kim went for a roller blade.  She showered, we watched a little more TV, and then we went to see “Wonder Woman” in the comfy recliners at the Southland Mall.  I don’t know where it came from but we had a movie pass that we used today!

I spent 1 day a week, for almost exactly a year being in the pool during my physiotherapy.  I can’t swim anymore.  I was lowered into the pool by what’s called a “Hoyer” lift.  It’s basically a crane for people who can’t walk.  Once I was in the pool there’s a rail all the way around the pool for me to hold on to.  I was able to walk & do some different physio exercises, all while holding on to the rail.  The pool is only 5 feet deep & it’s heated.  It’s quite a bit like a warm bath.  I would walk to each side of the pool holding the railing.  I’d float on my back with weights on my feet & I was to kick my feet during that time.  One leg is stronger than the other, I’d kick my feet & go in circles.  My therapist had me try a different walker in the pool as well, that didn’t work out to well.

 

If you’re here strictly for the cancer news, that’s all I have for you today.

Sad that Ed Sheeran’s tune fits with Disturbed vocals

 

If this is recorded I hope it’s different than this performance!

 

Ozzy Osbourne & Nine Inch Nails to headline festival!

Wanna hear/see a clip of every “Muse” song on bass?  Looks impressive!

 

The first thing I thought when I heard Foo Fighters single “Run” was “Oh my, the riff really reminds me of Pearl Jam’s tune ‘Spin the Black Circle”

 

Another tribute to Chris Cornell.  This time a song by “Audioslave” shared by www.loudwire.com

 

20 songs produced by Kanye West, that I’ve never heard?  Rap isn’t my thing.  His birthday was Thursday!

The songs “Madness” & “Dig Down” by Muse are done with an electric bass I have never seen anyone else use.

 

Cool!  Another great tune from the new “Royal Blood” album.  This & Big Wreck were/are my most anticipated album of 2017, until I found out Foo Fighters’ may have a release this year.  Royal Blood is not a metal band, if you’re worried about that.  The singer plays a distorted electric bass & the other member of the group plays drums.  That’s all, just the 2 of them!

Sorry, a little late today did my exercise, then had breakfast & flipped on CNN.  It was difficult to peel my eyes away from the TV.  It’s like watching a bad car crash.  Looks like the world has never been so divided.

AMERICA

I’m Canadian, so take this solely as my take on the political landscape south of Canada.  I’ve been glued to CNN for the majority of the afternoon.  The USA is spending all of this money, I assume, to find out if the President can be trusted (face it, that’s what it boils down to).

I thought they were supposed to make that decision when they voted in November?  You voted for him & now he’s making statements through his lawyer?  Give me a break!!!!!???????  Right there SCREAMS he’s not trust worthy.  All of this who said what when about who?  I’m glad the USA is wrapped up in cleaning up their mess right now.

I’m not going to pretend I have a hot clue as to what else is going on in the world, but the USA has made multiple enemies.  What’s ISIS, North Korea, or Russia doing right now.

The USA government is more than messed up right now.  Does anyone thing any of those enemies won’t kick America when they’re down?  I hope the USA get’s their act together, Canada is to close, geographically, to be unharmed should anyone choose to use chemical weapons!

PEACE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
