I saw them once before actually, supporting Devin Townsend at a gig at a Student Union bar in London. Their brand of sonic insanity was a perfect appetiser for that nights main event, but as an act in and of themselves, they are simply breathtaking.

Their stage act is ELECTRIC in its energy.

So Dawg gets to chase the chickens and play with the piggies this weekend. MMMMM, chicken francaise. LOL Man, I thank God I don't have to kill my own food. It would be gut wrenching for me.


My sister got to see my new fish and my pet rat on Wednesday. She hesitated at the rat cage but smiled when she how cute she was. She even pet it. LOL

Ok, going back outside. be back later. Behave everyone.

Night, you seem to have forgotten. no more chickens, except the one that's gone feral. She's a survivor!
The pigs on the other hand are still there.

Sorry y'all that I haven't been my usual chatty self. I think that my medications that were given to me are starting to take their toll. I don't like it either. There has to be another way.

In case you don't know, I've been diagnosed with high blood pressure and given lisinopril. I felt normal with HBP, but now my body is all wonky. Been having trouble sleeping, woke up a couple times feeling oxygen starved...and this stuff is supposed to be helping me!?

TDawg...

You might be feeling weird right now because, due to your previously high blood pressure, you are used to having too much blood flowing around your body at once, and therefore you may have become accustomed to an over abundance of oxygen in your muscles.

Once your body accepts the norms established by your medication, you will probably start feeling a little less wonky. Still, if you are really concerned, you should talk to your doctor.

She told me to chop the pills in half for a week. But it was scary waking up feeling as if I wasn't getting oxygen, even though breathing. These are the rarer side effects of this med. Another more common side effect is muscle pain, which I can do without and luckily am not experiencing. I'm keeping track of what is happening though, and if it keeps up will see if something else works.

With any luck though, you are right...but I hate poppin pills. Even if it is only once a day.

I hate taking medication also. Luckily I have not really required any since I was about eighteen, certainly not regularly! Well.... unless you count the rum of course.

Can't quite say I'm a happy camper at the moment. I've always been a tad hyper and adventurous. People have been telling me to slow down most of my life. I guess I'm just trying to cram as much life in while I can.


Today's not that bad though. No dizziness or lack of oxygen feeling so far. Both of which I hated the feeling of. Maybe you're right and my body is getting used to it. The thing that drives me nuts though is the Doc says I'll have to take it for the rest of my life.

So if the SHTF ever comes, I'll be that guy in that cave writing the warning on the wall.

"To whomever reads this. Beware! The end of the aaaaarrrrgggh!"

I am really sorry to hear that you are not firing on all cylinders, and to hear that this medication is going to be a permanent thing.

What I would say, is while you are normalising and getting used to the new pressure levels, you are going to want to be very careful about over exerting yourself. Remember, oxygen is not only vital for your brain, but also feeds your muscles, so the more active you are, the faster you will use up the oxygen in your blood. Because you have less blood pressure than you did, you might find your power levels are somewhat less than you would ordinarily like.

As I said, when everything balances out a bit, you ought to feel fine, but if I were you, until that happens I would be very careful about strenuous activity of any prolonged duration.

According to the news (medical segment) I was over doing it with my walks. I don't know how as it wasn't like I was speed walking or anything. Just ambling about aimlessly checking out the scenery until I had my four miles in. Rarely take the same route.

Of course the study was about people who had heart attacks previously...I don't think I've had one of those and it can stay on the shelf where it belongs as far as I'm concerned.

Of course I always try not to over exert myself because of my back and knee, but then there are days you don't feel it until the next day.

I must admit though, I am very leery of slowing down.

I don wanna! I don wanna! I don wanna!

Well you are not overdoing it if you are doing four miles a day on foot, even if that is extra to anything you would normally do, exercise wise. Working people usually walk about six miles a day during the normal routine of the day, without taking time to do an extra four, but ten miles total for a day is not excessive at all, unless one has had a heart attack or similar.

If all you have is some high blood pressure, then I would say that you are better off continuing to walk about as you have been.

Before I hurt my back, I was averaging eight miles a day at work, and that was a six hour shift tops. It was mainly pushing and pulling, some lifting and I loved it. I figured my knees or shoulders would go before my back. And I did stretch prior to work as it was mandatory and supervised. I practiced all the approved techniques.

I guess my problem was I was getting to old and had previous injuries and am now paying the price.

No matter. I'm slowing down and things will just have to take a bit longer to get accomplished. But I refuse to stop.

...and the Big G award for Post Of The Day goes to... LOL

I'm just back from band practice and the last two have been "acoustic" ones, so I didn't need to take my full kit, just my new Cajon drum! BLISS!! (Did I mention that when Chrissie went in to the drum shop to buy one for me, she couldn't remember the name, so asked the guy if she could see his Cojones!!!! (Look it up if you don't speak Spanish!!!))
His jaw apparently nearly burst his shop counter!

Anyway, the Schools in Scotland went back in yesterday, after their summer break....
and Wee Dougie is now officially a BIG Schoolboy! ***applause***
Here are the wee scallywags! (Dougie and Cal)


Just to fill you in on what's been going on with me...
I've been a bit "up & down" lately. I twisted my knee playing football about 2 months ago, and it's still not quite right, but I managed to find a friendly Sports injury Specialist who has "taped it up" for me, it certainly doesn't hurt so much now, so hopefully that's on the mend. But I also had a couple of rather worrying bouts of dizzyness/vertigo and light-headedness which I've had to go see the Doc about. They think it's probably just an inner-ear infection, but have run all sorts of blood tests and stuff, and I've to go back next week for the results.

Being OLD SUCKS! (I've got T-shirts older than True!!!!! LOL)

On the plus side, I've been jamming over my own brand of "folked up" acoustic music with my pal Gordy(2)LOL and it's going quite well, so we may be out gigging with that in the near future, probably under the guise of BlonnaHooley I think? I will keep you all posted!

Good lookin' Kiddos!

I could never stand to get dressed up as a kid, and that still pretty much holds up. Though occasionally I like to put on the "airs". Just to keep my friends guessing.

I've even been told I look good when I clean up. But looking good and being comfortable are two different things in my book. I prefer comfort over style.

Awwwww, Gordi, what beautiful, I mean handsome boys you have!

Dawg, what do you mean no chickens? You can't have a farm without chickens, that just won't do! Go get some friggin chickens!

I'm on a high blood pressure med too. I have one for blood pressure, one for nerve pain, one for regular pain and one for anxiety. Then I have to take vitamin D and fish oil. The fish oil is for my cholesterol. I can't seem to tolerate any of the prescription meds for high cholesterol. Oh and a regular vitamin and baby aspirin when I remember. I invested in one of those weekly pill holders that have the name of the days, otherwise I forget which pills I took on that day. LOL
