Friday night we stayed in & popped in a DVD aka nothing too exciting. We’re getting old & tired. Saturday we had planned on hanging out in Sherry & James’ backyard, it was far too windy for that though. Sunday we went to my parents place for brunch with some of out of province Frasers were in town. We hung out there for a while then Mitch & Rachel came with us to see “Captain America : The Civil War” AWESOME movie, the action/fight scenes were too fast for Kim on the screen that large though. Then we rushed off to have supper at Brown’s Social House with some friends. Mitch & Rachel were off to visit with other friends.

Kim & I were tired Sunday evening. Kim & I don’t spend much time outside & she has a really red farmers burn. All of the time between brunch & the movie, roughly 3 hours, we hung out in my parents backyard. If there’s shade, I’m good, if I get too hot I head indoors to cool off.

Alter Bridge studio update

“Tracking for ABV is done! Mixing starts soon!”

Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, defends Nickleback. I’m not a fan of Nickleback. That being said, there’s no reason to dump on them. You don’t like them, change the radio station, don’t buy their albums, wait 3 ½ minutes in a restaurant/bar until something else comes on & just let them be. Your going to waste your time & energy hating a group or artist? Because you heard 4 minutes of something you don’t like?

I love that people who vote get to sit on their big thrown and complain about whatever they want. I didn’t vote. I voted in 1 election in my 36 years, so I’m not allowed to complain. That’s fine by me! Is complaining going to change Justin Trudeau’s status? Probably not. So why complain, especially if I’m around? I’m not about to fix it for you?

Dierks Bentley interviewed by Foo Fighters’ Chris Shiflett. Dierks Bentley was an ’80s metal head? I’m not surprised, quite a few of them switched to country music in the new century.

Last Week Tonight with John Oliver. I can’t wait for November. When the TV isn’t flooded with the circus in the USA. Really? They haven’t decided yet?

All of the 1980s hair metal should stay in the 1980s, in my opinion.

Sorry if this is late? Had to make a juice, & fix some iTunes files where you could buy a USB stick of the show after it was done. A Barenaked Ladies show here from 2007.

“If I had my way” the week & weekend would be split more evenly. 4 days of work & a 3 day weekend every weekend. I’d shoot for a 4 day weekend but that wouldn’t happen. “I’d make Friday part of the weekend” & make chocolate a high protein, no fat, no sugar food! I forgot too take my pills Saturday night aka I really didn’t sleep well. I woke up at 4:40 am to go to the washroom, fell back asleep pretty quick. I woke up, thinking I had slept for quite a while (I have no clock on my side of the bed), I got up and I always put my eye patch, glasses & watch on last. My watch said 6:30 am? I guess I didn’t sleep much at all? I don’t take sleeping pills anymore, I haven’t for quite a few years. I don’t know what pill makes me sleep out of the few I take? Those memory pills are working great!!!! I think they might be a placebo?

Making my juice or whatever you want to call it vegetables & fruit blended together. I turned on “Headstones” their 1st 4 albums on shuffle.

I’M SICK

I tried to sleep to “Third Ion” that’s 2 nights in a row I’ve listened to the 8 song album debut with no luck falling asleep, I went to “Ed Sheeran” the album “X”

I’m pretty sure I’m at the beginning of a bad flu bug. Started yesterday & got worse. Hopefully I’ll be better tomorrow. My stomach won’t keep food down & the aching started last night & hasn’t changed. Fluids & crackers for me! Laid in bed with Brewster falling in & out of sleep this morning until 11:30 am Brewster got up around noon or shortly after.  In other words, I’ll catch you when I’m better!

Ian Fletcher Thornley on the song “Stop & Think” one of my favourite songs.

I quite enjoy the new “Dream Theater” album 34 song’s on a double album, songs average out to 4:30 minutes instead of 8. Also 4 or 5 song with just a symphony w/ no vocals.
