Friday was quite tame as usual.  Part 4 of “The Ranch” was on Netflix.  I think we ended on episode 3 & Kim fell asleep on the couch, she’s quite tired come Friday & it seems to get warmer in here as the day goes on.  All I did was exercise in the morning, shower, load the dishwasher, run it, do some hand wash dishes & empty the dishwasher.  I feel like I just rolled a marathon.  How did I get so sweaty?

I wonder how they’ll deal with Danny Masterson (Rooster from The Ranch or Hyde from That 70s show) being accused of rape.  This is the most recent news I’ve heard regarding this.

Saturday we were up late & had some friends over.  We watched “Office Christmas Party” then “Deadpool”.  Even after roughly 20 of seeing it, it never gets old for me!

Sunday.  Kim has more Christmas stuff to tend to.  She went out this morning to get a new cell phone.  Her iPhone fell out of her purse while in the parking garage & the glass broke.  I slept in, I showered while she was out, then we watched “Tanked”.  I miss having a fish tank, we were really good at killing fish.  We tried everything, perfect heat, no heat, proper PH balance, distilled filtered water, fresh filtered water, 1 fish added at a time, 5 fish added at a time, etc.  Nothing worked, we’d have 3 fish die a week!  I was baffled!

Now I’m off to watch SNL with Foo Fighters as the musical guest, then get ready for the week, as usual

I’ve never been a Kiss fan & even less of a Gene Simmons fan.

Pitchers Marcus Stroman, Aaron Sanchez, & Roberto Osuna should be untouchable.  All 3 are excellent, young, all have a bright future & are under contract for a few years.  In my opinion don’t trade them, if the Blue Jays do, they had better get something REALLY good in return.  Stroman & Sanchez are potential Cy Young award winners & Osuna is almost a guarantee to get 3 out in the 9th inning.  They’re all in their early 20s.  Unless they’re getting a superstar in return, no reason to trade them.

Friday ended with us watching our recorded shows on our DVR.  Saturday I slept in while Kim started cleaning since Brewster & I were still sleeping.  When Kim cleans, it’s always best to stay out of the way.  On top of that she went grocery shopping!  Then we cleared off the DVR & watched the Demi Lovato documentary on www.youtube.com REALLY good, I recommend it, it’s called “Simply Complicated” phenomenal voice too!

Full movie here – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZWTlL_w8cRA  or below.

 

Sunday I went to my parents’ place to watch the Saskatchewan Roughriders play the Ottawa Redblacks.  Roughriders crossed over to the eastern division & we won!!!!!!!!!!  Next week we play the Toronto Argonauts.  We also watched the Edmonton Eskimos beat the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in the western division.  They play the Calgary Stampeders next week.  I cheer for 3 teams the Riders, anyone against Calgary, & anyone playing against B.C.  Yes, that’s how I’m gonna be.

Today is more getting ready for the week, & Kim will go to the gym.

Yes, at the moment I’m all for comic book movies, & I’ve always enjoyed cartoon movies & Star Wars.  These last two have been my favourite movies of all time along with “Deadpool”, which is difficult to find an appropriate trailer of.

The trailer is rated R

I fell asleep to “Metallica” the new album “Hardwired”, got up to pee & listened to “Soundgarden” the album “Badmotorfinger”

I did a lot of stretching to “Anthrax” on shuffle

Let’s get one thing straight here.  I’m the man-baby of this house!  Not this man baby…

I’m not necessarily trying to lose weight, when I’m rid of this nerve problem, I’ll lower my exercise somewhat.  Maybe to 6500 crunches, 500 squats, 500 leg lifts, & 500 pushups a week, and some walking or exercise bike on Saturdays.  We are walking in our suite, with this pinched nerve on Saturdays, just to move the muscle a bit.  I don’t walk a huge amount, my foot starts to tingle and then I sit down.  Energy wise I could go much further, but my tingly foot prevents me, that’s why we’re walking in our suite.  I say we because Kim comes with me to make sure I don’t fall & crack my head open.

Despite me not really exercising over the holidays I’ve managed to lose more weight.  I have the time to exercise, & my diet stayed fairly consistent.  Sure there was alcohol, cookies, chocolate, gingerbread, etc.  Instead of devouring all of it, I had it in moderation.

My breakfast & lunch are quite healthy.  A hardboiled egg & a glass of blended fruit & vegetables for breakfast, sometimes multi grain Cheerios with skim milk.  Lunch is usually some fish, then vegetables or rice crackers & hummus for a snack in the afternoon.  Supper usually involves wild rice & quinoa with some type of meat or a stir fry of some type.  I don’t need to pay someone to tell me what to eat, I’m lucky that way.  I understand if other people do though.  I’ve never been so focused on anything before.  The weight loss is a byproduct from my exercise and diet to be able to walk, be more independent & more able bodied.

 

Sorry I need to get some Toronto Blue Jays stuff off of my chest.  Mostly, IS ANYBODY DOING ANYTHING THIS OFF SEASON??????  Every team seems to be sitting on their hands.  Spring training starts in mid-February, 2 weeks & a few days.  There was a PILE of sluggers on the free agent market, & there still is a few.  The Blue Jays went into the off season trying to get younger, more left handed, & faster.  Everybody involved from Edwin Encarnacion, his agent, & the Blue Jays’ GM screwed up royally and Edwin ended up in Cleveland for less money.  Edwin left to see if he could get more than the Blue Jays had offered $80,000,000 over 4 years.  The GM signed a 33 year old switch hitting designated hitter for $33,000,000 over 3 years bargain, right?  Sort of!  If I see that guy putting on any kind of glove other than a batting glove on, I’ll be yelling at my TV loud enough they’ll hear me in Toronto.  This off season is very close to being over & they need to fill in some holes yet.  They’re getting a good backup catcher, who will be 32 in May & he’s a switch hitter.  Now they need, 2 left handed relief pitchers, a left fielder & I’d like to see 1 more outfielder or first baseman.  That’s a lot to do in a limited amount of time!  The link below is one of the sites I get my Blue Jays info from, that site & other sports talk shows.

Don’t feel as though you have to click on every link.

After this post, no more Trump talk, this might become shorter?

I wish most people had a second chance at life like I do.  My dad always told me “You can do anything you put your mind to”.  Very true.  I screwed up my second chance.  I was focusing on the incredibly small flaws in other’s instead of focusing on how to make myself better, my head just wasn’t focused on what it should have been on.  Sometimes I’m shocked by what I’ve done, usually something positive, this last time in 2012 HOLY COW NO!

I watched most of the inauguration festivities yesterday.  The entire time it felt like I was watching a funeral instead of a celebration.  The Trump said his speech & regurgitated/summed up his campaign speeches by throwing pretty much every current politician under the bus in order to make him look better when he fixes what he has broken.  Assuming he can actually fix what he’s done.  During his speech it was raining/God was crying!

I’m not a political person at all but I was this election.  We as Canadians now share a border with a country that is ruled by a terrorist.  I’ll give him 6 months & see what has changed for the better?

Trump isn’t President yet.  I was watching the inauguration coverage on CNN or “fake news” as Trump calls it.  The entire thing was just a nightmare I had, right?

I’m doing the same with the new head honchos for the Toronto Blue Jays.  This is their first off season to put the team together aka make their mark on the team for the 2017 season.  Everybody else, from what I can tell, most fans have up on them and called them stupid on National TV or radio.  At least give them some time before you judge them.

Trump on the other hand has already given us his view point on many things.  He gets 6 months to start acting like a leader, then I’ll judge him (& it will be an uphill battle in many people’s eyes).

Saturday we cleaned & Kim was doing laundry.  We had supper & a movie at my parent’s house.  My parent’s dog got her first haircut, all 3 pounds of her, she’s so small & isn’t afraid of anything!  Goose is hilarious, she doesn’t sound like a real dog when she growls she sounds more like a hungry gremlin.

Sunday I really slept in.  Kim woke me up close to 12:00 pm.  Kim made breakfast, eggs, bacon, tater tots, & coffee for us!  That was pleasant surprise.  I asked her “What did I do?”  She replied “You’re you.”  She’s so kind/loving/smart/funny/smoking HAWT/HOTT.

Brewster stayed in bed a little bit after I left the bedroom.  All of the playing with Goose last night must have tired him out.

The rest of the day looks like more cleaning, laundry, & just getting ready for the week.  Shortly after I posted on the blog Friday, we got a call & I’ll be in for some therapy on my leg this week!

Myles Kennedy on the “Alter Bridge” song ‘Blackbird’

What he says about music meaning something to someone is exactly how hard core music buffs & musicians want everyone to feel about a piece of music.  Full disclosure, I was never the best song writer.  I was good enough to get by.  I made a point of not mentioning what a certain song was about on purpose.  It can mean whatever you need to feel at a certain time.

I was watching the “fake news”/CNN coverage of the inauguration & a song popped into my head, it’s metal but listen to the lyrics, in the chorus!

 

What good came out of Friday?  A 4th/new song off of the new Big Wreck album “Grace Street”

That’s 4 songs from a 13 song album with  preorder on iTunes.

 

What’s this?  It’s not on either album, unless it’s part of a (Deluxe Version)?  More investigating ASAP.  Ah, older song NOT on iTunes.

 

Ah, B.C. aka Before Cancer

By 2011 I was flat out depressed.  I was crying 20 times a day, I wanted to kill myself since I didn’t think I had anything to offer.  We’d go home for supper & I would ask Kim for a knife.  I was in a rough spot at the time.  I was being selfish, not thinking about anybody else.  I didn’t even want to talk to my doctor about it or anyone for that matter.  Kim wrote him a note that I dictated to her.  I felt like a BIG letdown to everyone.  My doctor actually apologized to me saying “I should have seen this coming” I told him that I was trying to keep it quiet.  I had been down in the dumps before, but nowhere near that much. I was first scheduled to see a psychologist but she couldn’t be there, she had left on maternity leave.  Instead I spoke with a social worker for two weeks.  Then I saw a psychiatrist once a week & now I’m on happy pills!

Bell, a satellite, phone & internet company are currently running a campaign for people struggling with depression.  Someone would like to talk or listen to you.  That’s what brought this on. I’m good now of course.  I was unable to find the phone number, but you can reach them on social media or on their website.  http://letstalk.bell.ca/en/

I encourage any & all people that are dealing with any type of mental illness to talk to someone & not hide it from others.  The longer you bottle it up, the worse it can get.  Talk to a friend, family member, or a complete stranger.  Whoever, just get that weight off your back & feel that sense of relief.  You’re not alone, 1/5 people deal with a mental illness.  Lots of people know how to deal with it.  Heck if you’re reading this & want to talk to me, don’t be afraid, I can shut up & listen even though I may not have the answers for you.  Please talk to someone, it’s not as hard as you think.

No I probably wasn’t in the same place you’re in, but I was in your neighborhood.  Send a personal message to this Facebook timeline if you want to keep it private or like I said just talk with someone, please?

What do I want for Christmas?  The relief of feeling OK without having this sciatic nerve pain.  I’ve had more than enough of this thing.  I get up & sometimes it’s this excruciating pain, & other times it’s as though it’s not there at all.  Pick one or the other please & just go with it.  The Jekyll & Hyde thing is not cool.  Be consistent please.  At least let me know what it’s going to feel like when I stand up?

 

I prefer an album that’s around 50 minutes long.  Eps just leave me wanting more.

I just saw that “Walk off the Earth” is playing on a cruise organized by “Sister Hazel”?????!!!!!!  I had no clue “Sister Hazel” was still active???!!!  I guess it’s mostly because that’s no longer my go to music style.

All of this is from the past week.  I started writing this on Friday all of the information on this post, is a week of music info on Facebook.

My nerve is much better after 2 visits to the Chiropractor.  More stretching & one more visit should do the trick.  On my side overnight the doctor recommended a pillow between my knees, WAY better.  When the pain is completely gone, I’ll cut WAY back on my exercises until January.  So this is nothing more than an update.  A poor way to end a good year of exercising.  Good time to slow down though.

 

Who knew “Staind” had more than 2 albums?  I thought they had 1, & I’m not joking.

If retired life without a driving license is me sitting on the couch, I’ll do whatever I can to go back to work or get a license!  HOLY BORING!  I think I’m done with Netflix……………..I think I’ve watched it all.  I’m pretty sure I’ve seen “Deadpool” & “Batman vs. Superman” too many times!  Next……..”Star Wars: Episode VII The Force Awakens” for the 10th time!  I listened to a PILE of music also while trying to get comfy on the couch.  Listening to whatever I had purchased this year & I’ve been working on my albums of 2016 since near the end of October.

This is the clean trailer & it still contains LANGUAGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  It’s a lot like an action movie that was handed to Kevin Smith to write the dialogue.  HILARIOUS!  I guess the script was written & re-written over the course of a decade!

 

Anybody watching the fantastic new show “This Is Us”?  Did you catch the Thanksgiving episode, with Paul Simon’s “Graceland” album?

Sure, I also think Big Wreck should be as noticed as Soundgarden.  Fridays should be a part of a 3 day weekend, every weekend!  “You can’t always get what you want”

Guess who wrote & directed this video?  Long time Soundgarden fan & friend Dave Grohl!
