Today, Feb. 4th, 2019 is World Cancer Day

So what does that mean? Does everyone get a free diagnosis? Free donuts at Dunkin, or free coffee at Starbucks for anyone with cancer. Nope, that would be nice though. Our blog post today has some background and statistics about the state of cancer in the World. Take a look here >> http://bit.ly/2UFdQZn

I posted a question about being nervous in crowds, I think this is kind of what it is like.

Here is another video of our band, this one is Billy Idol's Rebel Yell. Put on some earbuds or headphones and give a listen for better audio. And remember to try to "Live Your Life....Not Your Cancer".

Donna and I got in bed at 4:30 this morning after I got done playing a show last night. Another example of trying to "Live Your Life...Not Your Cancer", I was asked to join this band recently. We have known Allen and Pam Warren since 1982 when I played with them in another band. A few years later I played with them again in another band. This was like old times.

Last night was the first show with me on drums, we started setting up PA and Lighting at 4:30 PM, the show was 9 to 1, tear down and load up was 1.5 hours, drive home, 1.25 hours, we got in bed at 4:30, and my butt is whipped! This poor body is asking, "what were you thinking"?

As sore as I am, tired, sitting on the couch thinking how I hurt in places I haven't hurt in for a while, I'm already looking forward to doing it again.

This video is Pam singing Black Velvet, it's just a cell phone video but has pretty good audio if you have earbuds to listen with. So, today's goal is to lay on the couch, recuperate, take a nap or two, and watch the Superbowl.

Life is good, sore and tired, but good nonetheless. Last night Donna was saying we're too old for this, but look at the Rolling Stones, they have been embalmed I think, and they are still rocking!

We have a choice, we can sit on the couch and feel sorry for ourselves because we think we can't go out and do the things we used to, or we can get out there and grab a little bit of what we CAN do, and try to live life to its fullest.

So if cancer was the mud, this pretty much sums up how we all experience things a little differently.
