There's so much sickness

Some days you're up, some days you're down.  Such is life. Things have been crazy lately with me. Lots of illness and some deaths in tangental areas of my life. Depressing some days. But today, the sun is out and the weekend is two days away and life is good. I used to work with a woman who constantly said, 'there's so much sickness,' and she revelled in it as long as it was someone else's sickness and she could gossip about it. The rest of us just found her outlook on life depressing and amusing at the same time. She has moved on and while she was correct in saying, 'there's so much sickness,' I like to think there is an equal if not slightly more amount of hope in the world. So I am hopeful that it will be a good day and that everyone out there will enjoy it with me. Cheers!

Summer 2008

I hope everyone else is having a pleasant summer. So far, I have been biking and walking on lots of rail trails. The RTC ( is a great organization and I love them. So far this year, we have been on the Wabash Cannonball Trail in Ohio, the Lower Trail, the Staple Bend Tunnel Trail and the Johnstown Flood Trail all in Pennsylvania, the Western Maryland Rail Trail and the Great Allegany Passage in Maryland, among others. Sometimes we walk, sometimes we ride recumbent bikes. Besides biking and walking, my other summer passions are NASCAR (love KK#9)...went to Michigan, great track and lots less fans this year thanks to the gas price issues and concerts...saw Bowling for Soup on a very hot day in Virginia in early June. They put on a fabulous show! Love their music AND they are very funny guys. Hoping to see Journey and Cheap Trick later in the year. It will be interesting to hear Journey's new lead singer. Two years ago, we had the pleasure of hearing both Steve A. and JSS and both did a great job so I'll be waiting to judge the new guy for myself. Always get a good show out of Robin Zander and Rick Nielsen so will look forward to CT. Love Def Leppard and their new album is good but am passing up their concerts because I do not like their opening acts.

I chose to look at which won second place in the music category. What a cool site! I typed in a number of my favorite groups and got to hear a full song from each one. And the song selections were unusual and good--not hits but deep cuts from their albums. I didn't enter into the social networking areas but I will return to this site. For anyone who likes music (I only tried rock and heavy metal groups,) this is a great site!
