Irie, so sorry to hear about your friend.

Tomcat, I hope your b.i.l realizes that life is worth fighting for. However, after saying that, I think often when we are off to the side it's easy to say this person should do this and that person should that, but I suspect it's a completely different ball game when it's us personally who is dealing with these types of life decisions. I hope the family can support your b.i.l in his decision, even though they may not agree or understand his decision.

Took long enough to catch the escapees. Dick Matt and sweat. Pretty sure I could have made it to Canada in 3 weeks. They found some rum in a cabin? No wonder they got caught. I would have packed that and waited until I was across the border.

Buddy of mine from back in high school is in town for a couple of days. He's in the Air Force and has been overseas for awhile. Looking forward to catching up with him - been a couple years since I last saw him. Great day for catching up over beers and grilling on the deck.

Remember when all we used to talk about was the weather?

Every so often I come across a song or video that really captivates me, although I won't realize exactly why. Eventually I find that some sort of strong connection reveals itself.

This is one of those videos. It's captivated me for maybe a year now. I play it loud on my big screen and sound system. Often. Why does it speak to me so? I chalked it up to the video's basic content: the three main guys, the composition itself, and perhaps the best vocals the world has ever known, and the video's backdrop.

Yet tonite I sensed there was more, something drove me to wiki Miss Sarajevo. And there it was, amongst the text in the wiki:


"...had his camera sent to him from his home in California so he could film the documentary (which was produced by Bono) with the same goal of exposing people to the individuals living through the war. "The war is just a backdrop, it could be any war, the point is the vitality of the human spirit to survive, [to] laugh, to love, and to move on, that is something we will be addressing always." The song protests the war in Bosnia, criticising the international community for its inability to stop the war or help those affected by it. It was the only single released from the album. Its video combines clips from the documentary contain striking imagery, such as a shot of beauty pageant contestants holding up a banner with the words "DON'T LET THEM KILL US,"


Of course the parallels of my war with ALS --"The war is just a backdrop, it could be any war, the point is the vitality of the human spirit to survive, to laugh, to love..."

Eno captured the essence of the message beautifully in his composition, and the performance was brilliant.

Back up your data/system before installing windows 10. They always have little glitches. If the install don't go as planned, and you didnt back up your data....
