Do you have a question about stage 4 brain cancer?  Ask if you do!

Music throughout the weekend.  “Pretty Vicious”, “System of a Down”, “Foo Fighters”, & “Big Wreck

 

Friday ended with us going to bed at 9:30 pm.  I was tired & Kim was too.  I watched whatever was left on the PVR.  We had supper watched, “The Ellen Degeneres Show”, & called it a night.

Saturday I slept in.  Kim was up & cleaning the place.  I showered, got dressed, & got my butt in gear to help with the cleaning.  We had some company that evening for a small get together, we’re all old so 10:30 pm or so we called it a night!

Today will just be us getting ready for the week ahead.  Hard boil eggs, make a veggie juice, Kim has already done the grocery shopping.

 

Look at that!  The USA’s government is open (temporarily) without funding for the wall.  I think he should pay government employees out of his own pocket for all of the shutdown, remember he’s “really rich

THE REFRESHMENTS

I think I might be one of a handful of people that bought this album?  There are others, but I bought this on CD in the shortly after I saw a video on Much Music.  They’re probably best known for doing the theme song for the cartoon “King of the Hill”.  I have the album “Fizzy, Fuzzy, Big, & Buzzy” & I only saw this video 4 times I’m guessing?

Big Wreck on HEAVY rotation for me.

Friday evening was quite tame.  We were about to watch a movie, then Kim’s stomach disagreed.  She’s been having minor issues with it.  We went to bed after 3 episodes of the new Netflix series “Santa Clarita Diet”.  Oddly funny, that or I’m sick & twisted.  I don’t think Kim is sold on it yet?  I was busting a gut!

Saturday we slept in.  Kim went out to get some coffee, then made egg & banana crepes no other ingredients & they were FANTASTIC!  We went to my parents place for a turkey dinner.  They had a turkey in the freezer, & my mother loves turkey dinner.  If I never have a turkey dinner again that would be fine with me.  I mostly look forward to a plate full of turnips, no turnips this time.  My plate was a little bit of turkey, a bit of stuffing, & lots of carrots & parsnips.  I never touch mashed, boiled, or baked potatoes though.

Sundays are our “do as little as possible, while getting enough done for the upcoming week” day.  It’s a blizzard outside today.  Kim ventured out to get a few groceries though, & I’ll just be making a juice shortly.  Then a day of nothing.

 

 

Really?  They’ve made a hologram of Ronnie James Dio?

It’s official Brewster has a younger Aunt!  My parents bought their puppy on Saturday.  It’s a mutt, ½ Maltese & ½ Yorkie.  Fully grown, Goose, will be around 8 pounds.  I think they got ripped off we went over on Sunday (without Brewster, they can’t be around each other until Goose gets her 3rd vaccination & has begun the deworming pills) Goose is the size of a Guinea pig right now.  It’s weird seeing a dog that small, I thought Brewster was tiny, but then I met Goose who I think is just over 1 pound.  Brewster couldn’t even smell Goose on us.  Goose did fall asleep on both of us (licked & chewed on my thumbs, puppies have really sharp teeth).  Brewster looked HUGE when we picked him up after our visit.  Yes, Goose is named after Goose from “Top Gun”.  I guess Mitch & I have a younger sister now.  I was hoping for a sister when Mitch was born, I guess Goose will do.  The difference other than the gender is the size.  Goose is just as furry as Mitch though.

Today, Kim & I both just wanted to stay in bed.  We did until roughly 6:20 am. I went out & started with 60 squats.  Brewster didn’t want to get up either, I had to wake him up (after a belly rub) & took him outside.  He was up & down from our bed all night.  He can’t get on our bed, he growls until someone helps him, 99.9% of the time it’s Kim.

It’s November, & it was 20 degrees Celsius/68 degrees Fairenhight.  I was outside yesterday in shorts & a T-Shirt.  I grabbed my hoodie & Kim told me I wouldn’t need it.

It’s a 4 day week in Canada.  Friday, November 11th is Remembrance Day.  A day to remember our veterans aka the reason we speak English and/or French.  I’ve already lost 1 of 3 poppies (a pin of the flower that Canadians wear over our heart).  I lost my poppy in the vehicle, I don’t think it lasted 30 minutes?

Best albums of the ‘90s.  I’ve posted this before.  Foo Fighters’ album “The Colour & The Shape” was an instant game changer for me.

Singer of “My Morning Jacket”, Jim James, discusses his latest solo album.  The albums of My Morning Jacket are EXTREMELY tame compared to seeing them live.  I saw them in 2003 opening for Foo Fighters.  The CD I bought is caked I reverb & the album is very mellow.  More of mood music for me.

YOU MADE IT, THE WEEKEND’S HERE!!!

Today’s workout was brought to you by the letter “T”, as in Trivium on shuffle.

Kim & I are watching “Scandal” on Netflix. We Just finished season 3 Thursday night. Great show, one problem, writer/creator “Grey’s Anatomy” & “Private Practice” lady. She’s a hot writer at the moment but I swear she gets writers block every 10 minutes & “Ooo, now they have sex”. I like “Scandal”, but it is really getting old fast. That’s the exact reason I don’t watch “Grey’s Anatomy”. I liked “Private Practice” too, but I don’t miss it. All of these shows are getting old around every corner somebody’s having sex with someone, for no reason at all?

Thursday’s Rock It Out Blog. GREAT TOPIC!!!!

Gay marriage seems very similar to marijuana issues at the moment. They can do either legally or illegally? What would you want the police to be more concerned with? Pot smokers that want a bag of chips, same sex people living together? Or the guy down the street who will snap in a week & go on a shooting spree?

Blue Jays baseball Thursday night, they’re all but guaranteed a playoff spot if they go 5W-5L & the N.Y. Yankees go 8W-2L for the last 10 games of the regular season then the Jays are out & I highly doubt that will happen?

If this is true, when is this tasty nugget being released? All I see on iTunes are a bunch of “Slash” albums & EPs he’s sang on?

Today/Friday, September 25th Rock It Out Blog LANGUAGE!!!! When we were onstage, no matter what rock band I was a part of. Nobody swore on stage unless it was a cover song. We didn’t care who said what, it didn’t matter, freedom of speech, Mitch did once & just didn’t want to do that again.

John Lennon, Taylor Swift, Ryan Adams, Father John Misty, etc. ^^

Songs I like. “The Refreshments” They were never a big name act, I think they were in the 20s on the Much Music Video Count down for 2 weeks in the ’90s. Then they disappeared. I have one CD, I think “The Refreshments” on iTunes are a different group other than this album?

https://itunes.apple.com/ca/album/fizzy-fuzzy-big-buzzy/id45889

Yep, they did this theme song!!!!

I still listen to this album. I flip through my iPod & I see ‘The Refreshments’ & then I think to myself, “Hey, I haven’t listen to that in a while?”
