ALMOST GOT TO MY DAILY TOTAL TODAY/BREWSTER ENTERTAINS ME.

I fell asleep to “Oasis” the album “Definitely Maybe” woke up to pee at 4:00 am, crawled back into bed & listened to “Oasis” the album “Be Here Now”

Emptied the dishwasher & made breakfast to “Candlebox” the album “Disappearing in Airports” then put on “Coldplay” the album “A Head Full of Dreams”

I exercised to “Trivium” all albums on shuffle other than “The Crusade”, just the instrumental song “The Crusade”.

They’ve got 6 other full length studio albums I like & own. 4 actual CDs & 2 from iTunes. I own the CD “The Crusade” but I’m not a fan of that album.

This is for anyone & everyone who might find this interesting! Please help me out if you don’t mind? I’ve been sharing this publically on my page, I don’t think it’s helping? Please do what you can to spread the word?

I was close to getting through my regular daily exercise. I should get there by Thursday or Friday?

Our dog, Brewster, is hilarious! All 12 ½ pounds of him make me laugh out loud anytime I see him doing something odd! Late last week or maybe on the weekend I could tell he was dreaming. We were in bed, Brewster sleeps with us, I had my noise canceling ear buds in yet I could hear him? He was asleep but he was barking at almost full volume for a minute. Usually it’s 10-20 seconds of quiet barking. Whatever he was dreaming about he wanted it bad! He didn’t even wake up when I was busting my gut out loud.

The next day he was sleeping in his dog bed, barking. Just his normal dream bark, but I laughed. I always think he’s dreaming about squirrels. “I’m gonna get you squirrel” at least that’s what I like to think when flopped out on his side barking & twitching his legs!

I love it when he tries to “fix” his bed. All curled up in a circle in his dog bed, then you hear & see him barking & twitching all 4 legs to get it as perfect as he can. For the first time yesterday I saw him pushing his bed with his head across the living room. I chuckled out loud again! He’s my main source of entertainment!

AWESOME! Another Canadian band going on tour & skipping right passed Saskatchewan & Manitoba! Sad! A typical Canadian tour is Montreal, Toronto, & Vancouver (some times Calgary & Edmonton). I’ll go to Calgary or Edmonton if it’s someone I really want to see, the other locations are a 2 day drive. Montreal is even further. Will I be seeing this tour? No! If they were coming to Regina I would. Saskatoon is 2.5 hours away but I’ve made that drive too many times since 1996 to see I Mother Earth. It’s a really long/boring drive. It certainly doesn’t feel like 2.5 hours, more like 8 hours!

GMOs from a farmer’s mouth. BOOM DROP THE MIC! There has been thousands of scientific studies, & farmers, most of them I assume use GMO seeds. As for taste, that’s pretty subjective. I like seafood, Kim doesn’t. I don’t like potatoes, Kim does.

http://findourcommonground.com/food-facts/gmo-foods/

Do what you want. I’m trusting science & a farmer, not Neil Young or a healthy 14 year old. The last www.youtube.com link is long if you like skip to 1 hour & 36 minutes for the results of the debate if you like. If you’re growing your own food are you sure the seeds aren’t already modified? I’ve heard, I’m not positive on this, that none GMO seeds aren’t easily available to the general public? Like I said this is what I will do. You don’t have to do the same. Do what you feel is best for you.

Opeth has another studio report. Dream Theater songs are long, but Opeth’s songs can be even longer! You really do have to set aside a free hour to listen to an Opeth album & it’s not tap your feet music!

COFFEE (& CIGARETTES)

I got up, had my breakfast juice, made coffee, & filled my water bottle. Wrote part of this post & went back to the living room. Somehow I dumped an entire coffee all over the place. You’d be amazed at how far one cup of coffee can spread! It was black coffee, I never put sugar or cream in my coffee. I had to wipe it up with a Swiffer wet pad after a bunch of tea towels. The house smelled like coffee for a bit, now it’s gone.

 

Fell asleep to “Meg Myers” the album “Sorry”. Woke up to this song in particular “I Mother Earth” the song “Meat Dreams” from the album “The Quicksilver Meat Dream”

 

Today’s workout was brought to you by “Jamiroquai” a ‘Greatest Hits’ I made on iTunes mostly from the “High Times” collection on iTunes.

I’ll state this up front. The ’80s hard rock & metal in L. A. was not at all what I grew up on, or heard at that time. A few of these I do like!

Might as well stop bickering and doing thousands of scientific tests on GMO’s. Since the anti GMO groups have asked for another test, since the tests haven’t shown more facts supporting organic food?

http://licensetofarm.com/

Yes I had cancer, but “I’m still standing” I eat more vegetables & fruit than ever before. I can count on one hand the number of times I’ve been sick, & I don’t need 5 fingers to count it, so I’m pro GMOs. You eat what you want, & I’ll eat what I want. Don’t believe me, believe the farmers & scientists.

LANGUAGE!!

Long debate, close to two hours long, but worth watching. If you’re against it, that’s fine by me. What are you doing to prevent GMO usage?

We tried to grow corn in our previous garden. It had the texture of chewing gum. It could be that we did something wrong or that it was organic? I don’t which honestly? I do know we wasted time, a little money & threw out the corn after a few bites. In this debate, cheese & insulin for diabetics were the first GMO products used.

 

I hope this never happens, I don’t think the result would be good for fans, actors, Stan Lee, or JJ Abrams/George Lucas. Epic fail.
