I did it!  I hit all of my goals, & even exceeded one to make up for my performance on Tuesday.  Things are getting better & better.

 

Not only did the Jays lose on Wednesday, & they’re done now for the year…………………..again!  We had a second power outage last night?  2 days in a row.  At least last night’s blackout was only 20 minutes long?  Baseball season is done for me.

Goodbye Jose Bautista at the very least.  I hope somebody offers you $20,000,000/year.  I’m not a general manager, even a qualifying offer of $17,800,000 seems like too much.  He talks too much, can’t really back it up, & has become a notorious whiner throughout this past season.  The Blue Jays will look different next year, hopefully younger too?

 

Puscifer & Ronda Rousey take a shot at Donald Trump.  Thanks Elka!

Pearl Jam’s Facebook status

“Vs. turns 23 today! Pearl Jam’s second studio album was released on October 19, 1993.”

 

Remember “Econoline Crush” one of THE Canadian rock bands to find success in the ‘90s?  Here’s their Facebook status………….

“Congratulations!!!!

EC has signed a deal with the Canadian independent label Strong and Free. The label and staff are working hard to get us up to speed. In the meantime we are currently working on a full length recording to be completed and released early 2017. We will also be releasing other material such as remixes, demos, videos and songs. Thanks again for your love and support.”

Yep, good times at Bushwakkers pub last night. My brother’s band, Room 333, was playing 2 sets of acoustic versions of their songs. It was a really great show! No cover charge & good beer. I forgot how good their beer is………………………………I wonder why? Nah, I only had 3 pints in 2 hours. I haven’t been in there probably 9-10 years. Good music always sounds better with tasty beverages!

https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/red-dragon/id917967693

They have an album before this one. Sorry, it’s not on iTunes though, only on CD at their shows.

I need to remember I’m not in my 20s anymore. I should be home earlier than 11:30 pm without alcohol. I’m really tired & I was really good at procrastinating today. I got everything & more done today. Now it’s almost 1:00 pm though!

REMINDER Kongos out of South Africa have a new album out tomorrow or if you’d like to have it tonight, it will be on iTunes at 12:00 am Eastern time.

LIVING CANCER FREE

I fell asleep to “Puscifer” the album “Money Shot” after 3 or 4 attempts at other albums including “Prince” the album “Purple Rain” & “Pantera” the album “Vulgar Display of Power”

EXPLICIT LANGUAGE IN THE SONG BELOW!!! Prince never allowed any audio in his youtube videos. Here’s Foo Fighters covering “Darling Nikki” as a B-Side for single from “The Colour & The Shape” released in 1997.

I exercised to “Dream Theater” the first 3 songs on the album “The Astonishing”

Followed by “Lynyrd Skynyrd” a double album “The Essential” on shuffle

So now I’m living cancer free which is awesome! Those 4 & ½ years look smaller & smaller as time progress’. Can’t remember them nor do I really want to. Now I pay far more attention to my health. I eat much better than I did before. Sure I splurge like most people about 2 or 3 times a month or on the odd occasion we go out, which isn’t very often. The rest of the time I drink a mixture of fruit & vegetables I toss in a blender & have that for breakfast usually other than once a month that we go out for brunch. Lunch is usually a chicken wrap with a bit of grated cheese & Frank’s Red Hot. Supper is a wild card, usually chicken with Quinoa & wild rice in some form with some type of vegetables or a salad from Pita Pit or something along those lines. I eat less sugar filled stuff than I did before. Even my snacks are grapes, carrots or rice/pita crackers & hummus. 2 or 3 liters of water or a glass of cranberry juice to change it up a bit. If we go out, it depends on my mood, a salad or the tastiest thing on the menu. I exercise Monday-Friday for a little over an hour & I think we’ll be walking Saturdays & Sundays in our parkade with my walker & Kim holds me to make sure I don’t fall! I wish you all could meet her, she’s beyond AWESOME!

There’s no manual for surviving, surviving stage 4 brain cancer. I was told to exercise, especially my core muscles. So I spend roughly 1 ½ hours every morning exercising. My abdominal muscles are incredible, unfortunately they’re covered by a layer of fat. My mom suggested I try doing some squats! I’ve added that into my exercises. I have many exercises I can do here at home on the floor & stairs, walking & using the exercise bike in the condo’s “gym” aka a exercise bike & a treadmill.

CONDO LIFE

Today’s workout was brought to you by “Chevelle”. 7 albums on shuffle!

 

I didn’t even know “Chevelle” existed until last year when I borrowed a large collection from James last year!

 

Living in a condo has it’s pros & cons. “I’ve got 4 walls around me” a roof over my head, one of 2 washrooms that work (plumber coming this week to fix a leaky pipe). Nice comfortable bed, nice office area, nice paint, laminate floors, everything is great. The only two issues I have are we payed a butt load of money (thanks to our parents for helping us out), but it’s the condo board’s rules? We paid for our suite, what happens in here should be our rules? The other minor issue is the lazysusan cupboard. The cabinet makers measured wrong. It’s fine except the bottom hinge on that stationary cupboard falls apart. We took possession in December 2013. We have a 5 year warranty on the building. The hinge broke again the other night. Why do we have to continue fixing their mistake? I say our warranty is running out, we should have them fix their mistake before the warranty runs out? We don’t need to be rude about it, just tell them “Hey, this hinge keeps falling apart, please make it a functional cupboard”.

 

Beer & Alcohol DEFINITELY make you fat. Isn’t alcohol in general full of sugar? You sit down to have a beer or glass of wine at the end of the day, maybe you have 1 & it turns into 2? That’s a TON of extra calories. I don’t touch alcohol until Friday & Saturday, & I don’t drink to get hammered. I drink for the taste. After 2 drinks each Friday & Saturday I usually call it quits, on the odd occasion I’ll max out at 4 one night. I exercise Monday through Friday. Guess what? I may have lost 45lbs but I still have a beer belly. It’s getting smaller but it’s still there!

I’ve never joined a fantasy sports league. I did help out my sister-in-law with an office hockey pool, since neither her or her husband watch hockey. I just watch the highlights on TSN. I was a part of a facebook page where you’d just pick the winning team of 4 CFL games a weekend. That’s as close as I ever got to a fantasy league.

If Scott Weiland wants to return to the “Stone Temple Pilots” that would be great. I think he’d have to kick the drugs & alcohol first before the other 3 members would let him back?
