I fell asleep to “Foo Fighters” the album “Concrete & Gold”


Friday evening ended with me watching the Blue Jays win their first game on the road in Texas.  Rain delay but they got it in.  I was also throwing back a couple of pints of Rebellions “Cherry Tart” beer.  I love their sour beers that come by once a year.

2 pints of “Cherry Tart (sour) beer” is full of sugar, almost too sweet for me.  All of that sugar & I was wide awake in the shower by 8:00 am on Saturday.  It’s very sour for 3 or 4 seconds, then incredibly sweet.  Went for a visit with my Grandparents in the afternoon.  Came home but stopped for “Wok Box” for supper.  Neither of us had ever tried it.  Expensive, but Kim will get 2 meals out of her order, in the long run it’s not bad for a fast meal.

Watched the Blue Jays lose 5-1 against Texas.  That makes their record 5W-4L.  After 9 games last year they were 1W-8L, so this is an improvement but nothing to get too excited about.  The Blue Jays will likely look very different by June or at least this year.  It will be more players from the minor leagues taking over.  Next season, nobody will have heard of the players on the 25 man roster.  Yes, they play almost every day.  They had an off day this past Thursday & another one this coming Thursday.

Sunday morning, that “Cherry Tart” beer is gone after 2 more pints last night, & thank goodness.  WAY too sweet for me, tasty, but too much sugar!  Woke up at 8:00 am again, & we don’t even have a kid.  Last game of 3 games for the Blue Jays in Texas.  Hopefully they can get a win today to make their season record 6W-4L instead of a 5W-5L record.  If they’re going to do anything this year they need to have a much better record at the end of April.  Last year they dug themselves a deep hole & never got out of it finishing 4th in a division of 5 teams.

Then it will be a regular Sunday for us of getting ready for the week, Kim will be getting groceries, I made my juice yesterday, hard boil some eggs for breakfast during the week, laundry to be washed & put away, etc.



My Father bought this album when I was very young.  It was released in 1986, I’m not sure if that’s when he got it?  I was a kid so at first I thought it was just OK.  It aged well though!  I ended up buying my own CD sometime between 2005 & 2007?  This is the only Paul Simon album I own.  I know at some point, I’ll seek out more of his stuff, I just haven’t gotten around to it yet.  Now I consider this album as one of my many classic albums….


Top 10 Foo Fighters riffs.


Avatar sequel is coming, why?  I had many issues with the first one, I didn’t care for it at all.  Kim bought it though.


Number 1.  Fall Out Boy are NOT a rock band.  Number 2.  They’re a guitar based pop band that uses samples.  If you’re looking for more than that, go somewhere else.  I like Fall Out Boy, great pop band.  If I want to hear a rock band, I’ll listen to something different.


New “Pentatonix” 11 song album “Top Pop Vol.1” is out Friday, April 13th.


2 big releases on April 20th.  “A Perfect Circle” & “Tesseract”

This “Tesseract” band is growing on me, in a good way, not like warts, crabs, or herpes, those have never grown on me.


Nirvana’s “Heart Shaped Box” reworked for TV show “West World”



Yes, I watch as much Blue Jays baseball as possible.  What doesn’t make sense to me is, why are they babying certain players that are constantly injured?  Their 2B player has been in the major league for 4 years & probably hasn’t played a full season if all of his games were added together.  A season is 162 games, an “everyday” player should be around 120 – 140 games.  This guy is playing for 2 games & 1 game off, to avoid injury, WHY?  So, if he stays healthy he’ll play 108 games.  If he can play 108 games, why not send him out for 120 or 130 games?  Special treatment for him could be difficult if/when they want to trade him.  Other teams could see him as a liability that needs special treatment rather than an asset in a trade.

I fell asleep to “The Northern Pikes” the album “Snow in June” from 1990 originally from Saskatoon. Before that it was “Stone Sour” the album “House of Gold & Bones Part 2”

I exercised to ”Foo Fighters” the self titled debut album that Dave Grohl did by himself. Band was not assembled yet aka nobody said “FOO FIGHTERS UNITE”!

Perfect, it’s my dad’s/George’s birthday today.

Exercise total for the week; 15 minutes of Yoga, 120 squats, 160 leg lifts, 5100 crunches. My abs are in the best shape ever, I still have a layer of fat over them though. We/I need to do more cardio. It hurts until I get through the first 75-100 crunches, then it’s fine.

Yes, this is also on facebook if you prefer.
