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?

Thursday nothing but stretching & TV. Friday more of the same with a progressive metal show in the evening to kick off the long weekend! The show was really good. I haven’t been to the Exchange in quite a while. There’s somewhat of a metal scene there. We don’t all know everyone’s name but you go in there & recognize around 50% of the people at least! Great show & fun times! Sound was really good also! I can’t imagine doing sound for an opening death metal band, but it sounded very good! 3 bands for $10, good deal! I’m getting old though. The concert ended around midnight, I was tired, WAY past my bedtime!!! It was “Third Ion’s” album release show, really good progressive metal group!!!!!!

Saturday we went to my parents place for supper & to say goodbye to my cousin & uncle back to Winnipeg as of Sunday morning. We stayed there until around 11:00 pm. Staying out past 10:30 pm makes me tired.

Because of staying out so late, I planted myself on the couch to watch The Toronto Blue Jays fall back into 2nd place in their division. The funniest thing this weekend has been that the Blue Jay scored 6 runs in their game Friday night, & the Roughriders scored 3 points Friday night. The baseball team scored more than the football team! Hahahahahaha!

I think Kim is “Superwoman”, she’s more than amazing. Monday thus far has been Murphy’s Law since I went to shower. Kim’s probably sating to herself “That idiot” & she would be right in doing so. Knock on wood, I have yet to fall today!

Stranger Things” on Netflix is REALLY good. It’s a show based in 1983, a group of kids are playing a game & their friend disappears in the first episode & it goes on from there. 8 50 minute episodes & I really hope there’s a 2nd season! Yes I binge watched the last 4 episodes today, Thursday.

Too bad this isn’t the theme song….

I highly recommend “The Ranch” on Netflix starring Ashton Kutcher & Danny Masterson. This show is HILARIOUS!!!!!!!!!! LANGUAGE!!!!!

Donald J. Trump is “Christian” not Christian watch the movie Red State by Kevin Smith. A God does not tell the followers to kill. A God accepts people for who they are! Some where along the way people have not fully understood their religion’s Bible?

There’s a big difference between “Christian” & Christian or “Muslim” & Muslim! Extremist & Religious are two very different things!!!

EXERCISE WEEKLY TOTAL/ JULY 1, CANADA DAY!!!!

I fell asleep to “Sum 41” half of the album “Screaming Bloody Murder”, then the entire “Stitched Up Heart” “Never Alone” album, woke up to tinkle. Came back to bed & listened to “Megadeth” the latest album “Dystopia”

I exercised to “Chevelle” everything. Stereo wasn’t working? I played a www.youtube.com mix of Chevelle. New album 8 days away!

Yes, this is also on facebook if you prefer.

Exercise total for 4 days ; 5250 crunches, 490 leg lifts, 250 squats, & 200 like push ups. Let me “Break it down” for you.

This is during a normal 5 day week. 1500 crunches, 140 leg lifts, 80 squats, & 50 push ups, 5 days a week. I’ve got the time for that & no, I don’t get paid for that, well I guess disability & EI checks pay me for that. My left hand is still quite shaky but I can hold things with it if I hold them against my torso. When I add an exercise, of course it takes me longer. So all of that takes me 2-2 ½ hours a day. I like to get started by 8:00 am usually if not earlier. Get it done & out of the way! I had a week that I was procrastinating my exercise. Not this week though! Just a day of feeling a little quizy, threw off my numbers a bit. 80 squats a day now instead of 60, yet my dominant leg, right leg, looks like chicken wing bone? My left calf is slightly larger. I’m still 240 pounds, I think it’s my fat turning into muscle? I know I was 265 when I got sick & I still didn’t look terribly overweight really. I’m much thinner now!

You know how your shampoo bottle says to use a dime amount to wash your hair? I don’t have much hair so I use a nickle of shampoo, that’s half of the recommendation……….or ……………wait………I screwed it up a nickle is bigger than a dime, my bad!

Brewster is at the groomers right now. He had an appointment at 7:00 am, and yes I got up at the same time Kim got up to get in the shower to take him to the groomers. He gets so excited if we say “Sara”, his groomer’s name. Weird guy LOVES getting a hair cut? I’ve never seen a dog so excited for a trim?

I’m really getting tired of Facebook for 2 reasons. Everybody has an opinion & I get that not everyone has the same opinion as the next person. Seems as though Facebook is the new way lots of people like to pick an argument about someone they have never met in person & have a different opinion. People were complaining about a “Pearl Jam” concert being canceled because the law changed in that state & “Pearl Jam” followed suit & canceled the show as many other bands did. The law was against the LGBT community. I said “Hey, it’s a concert that was canceled for a reason. If you don’t like that the show was canceled, stop harping on the band. Talk to someone in the Government about the new law”. Then random people complain about my opinion. I can’t change the law, I live in a different country! What did I do, & why are they whining & complaining to me?

Candice, who I met in University through her now husband Rydell, was getting heat for the fiasco of a child that was in a Gorilla exhibit. Everybody was outraged that the Gorilla was shot? What, they’d prefer if the child was shot instead? I have nothing against any animal, but REALLY?!?! Give your head a shake?

Now we have the shooting in Orlando. All of the gun loving Americans would probably say ”Well, if those gays had a gun on them this type of thing wouldn’t have happened”. It happened. Why did the idiot who did this have a gun in the first place? “Well, you can’t tell if someone will mentally snap after they purchase a gun”? Who the heck needs an AK-47? Unless you’re in the military or police force on duty, you shouldn’t need or own one. If you live in America, they’ll sell a gun to any John or Jane Doe that has the money. If the shooter didn’t have a gun none of this would have happened!

Yeah, the shooter was American, apparently a member of ISIS, & Islam! In that case he’s just as different as the rest of us in that he was all of those things & an extremist

In Flames signed a new contract with Nuclear Blast

“In a way, IN FLAMES and Nuclear Blast share a similar story,” said IN FLAMES vocalist Anders Fridén. “Both started in a garage in Europe, both love metal and both have grown a lot bigger over the years. For these reasons, it seemed a natural fit to come back to the place it all started.”

Did anybody hear that Tremonti released the album “Dust”?

Give them as many guns as they want & tax ammunition 200% & raise the price on it to $100.00 a box, or higher! This could go two ways. America could take a chunk out of their debt or gun owners will either stop shooting people, or save their money for an ammo shopping spree!

That was quite the busy week for me! I purposely don’t leave the house much during the week. Saskatoon on Monday, Bushwakkers on Wednesday, my parent”s place on Friday, then a football game on Saturday = a tired me. Especially after sleeping on the couch Saturday night. Great weekend but oh my am I tired! No plans for this weekend……………………………………..yet.

I don’t think a TON of people are on www.youtube.com to look up “Sixx AM”. Unless I’m included for this blog? Yeah, I get it. They want the advertising, I don’t own any “Sixx AM” but if you put a youtube mix on, that is truly free music.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver.

OK so we know there was another shooting in Orlando in a gay night club. I think it’s terrible & flat out wrong. I haven’t opened facebook yet, but I’m sure that news will be everywhere. I don’t want to repeat the story from everyone. I’ll post 3 links of the shooting & leave it at that. Nobody needs to hear/see it over & over again. I’m not making light of it either. It’s bad news that can’t be changed. It was beyond stupid that a 27 year old male opened fire killing & injuring I think it was 40 people, just because they’re gay. If you don’t understand that they’re gay at least acknowledge it & get over it. They weren’t just gay, that was somebody’s son, daughter, brother, sister, uncle, aunt, friend, father, mother, cousin, etc. You can’t label them as just gay, they’re humans, like we all are!

When I die, I don’t want to be remembered as “That guy who had cancer”! Quick & easy label. I want to be remembered as a friend, son, brother, husband, someday maybe an uncle, a son-in-law, etc. Not the guy that had cancer!

And boom. Orlando shooting news. How did society get this way? Maybe because so many people in the USA have a gun with them 24/7?

Friday afternoon Kim went to Saskatoon with a bunch of friends to see Garth Brooks, the second show of his that night. I guess he didn’t go on stage until 11:30 pm? Kim didn’t get home until 4:15 am, Brewster & I were out cold. I spent Friday evening watching the 3rd Hobbit movie in my dad’s theater room on blu-ray. Dad’s read all 4 of the Lord of the Rings books, I couldn’t get through them, too much detail in them for me. Dad drove Brewster & I home at 11:30 pm I think it was. I watched a bit of TV & went to bed shortly after 1:00 am. Kim didn’t want to go to a metal show on Monday, & I had no interest in seeing a country music show. Fair enough for me.

Saturday was the Saskatchewan Roughriders home exhibition game. The home town Riders lost, half time was exciting though! I don’t think we were 1 minute into half time & the power at the stadium died. About half of the fans went home after half an hour. Dad & I stayed until the end. I think the second half started around or shortly after 10:00 pm. By the end of the 4th quarter it started to rain. There were dark clouds everywhere even before the game started. Small crowed, since it was a pre season game, got smaller when the power went out & even smaller when it started to rain. Good thing I usually have to wait for everyone to leave since I’m slow going down the stairs. Somebody always asks if they can help us? Common response is “No thanks we’re just slow, we’ve got this”! When the power came back at the stadium they played this over the P.A. System, well played Mr. Announcer!

I’ve pretty much seen every home game since my Grandparents could hold me on their lap. Then I got my own season ticket. Next year in the new stadium, I’ll likely go for one season & that will be it for me. A season ticket is roughly $640 now next season in the new stadium will be in the neighborhood of $1000 per season ticket. That’s too much for us, when I can watch the games on TV. Nothing like being in the stadium though. My mother’s retired & I don’t think dad’s far behind aka it will be too much for them also?

Yes, I got the couch again Saturday night. Kim was sleeping with someone else again. Again, I’d rephrase that but it’s true. Dad, Kim, Brewster, Hannah & I were rocking out to the Frozen soundtrack on the way to the game…

Today is baseball day for me, couch, baseball, & air conditioning. I’m FAR behind the game now, it started at 11:00 am, I recorded it and stated it at 12:30 pm,

I completely agree with this! Would you want a rapist on a National swimming team? Remember he’s representing his country, America!

Obama address’ the shootings at an Orlando gay night club. Maybe let them have guns & tax ammunition ^ raise the price on it, so it’s $65 per bullet? Everybody in the USA with a gun wont let gun laws be changed. Is there a right to own ammunition?
