Peace and Love Everyone

Oh yes! I love the Foo Fighters, and I love Everlong. I've never heard the acoustic version before though, and I must say, I do like it.



Thank you for sharing.

Glad you feel well for someone who can't sleep. I love my sleep too much, would love a few more hours each early morning too, haha! But alas.

Been up since 9 a.m. Friday.
Now it's past 4 a.m. Sunday.
Not a wink of sleep.
I think I may go see if I can exhaust myself on the punching bag.
Insomnia is only annoying if you are trying to go to sleep when you just aren't sleepy.

"Welcome to my world
Won't you come on in?"

Glad that it isn't bringing you down!

Love the song choices, by the way.

Makes complete sense to me....not my first time around the corner.....insomnia just seems to show up, so I just go with it. I am very lucky that I can survive on little sleep.........but, when I sleep....LOL....I can sleep for 12hours....it is what it is....happy to just be here and have friends like youl

I'll share one


May be an acquired taste for some.

It always makes me think of my daughters and smile.

I'm going fishing.
I know a spot with a good shade tree to snooze under.
I may find that I have aged 100 years when I wake up.
It really irritates me that I can't buy beer until noon on Sunday.

That is so beautiful Chirp......as a single dad of daughters.....It makes me smile too. I never heard of this song or group before...that is what is so magical about ATS we share.....I love It!
This one actually has a very special bond between my oldest and I. It may say sound silly.......but we played it over and over and over again.

It's different. LOL



Peace and Love Everyone. Enjoy!

Insomnia is a bastard! When it's too strong, yeah, you might as well get busy and achieve something. Might as well chat to people on the internet or learn something somewhere.


Audiobooks on dry, academic subjects put me out. The narrator's voice is interesting for 10 minutes and then I'm drifting away. Now and then, it's the 3am insomnia so I log in here with the display on super-dim and wait for the tiredness to get me. If the alarm goes first, it's too late and the day ahead will be one long drag.

Sleep!! I love it


Listen to this Freakonomics episode some time - The Economics of Sleep (Pt1)


It’s well-established that a lack of sleep can impair our cognitive function. Sleep loss has also been linked to adverse physical outcomes like weight gain and, increasingly, more serious maladies. Is it possible that lack of sleep can even explain the income gap?

Those are just a few of the issues we try to figure out in this episode. But because sleep is such a big and interesting topic – and, let’s face it, it’s also kind of weird, the fact that our bodies shut down entirely for roughly a third of our lives – we are actually making two episodes about sleep. The second one will be released next week.


There's a State with towns on either side of the date-line and their economies are like rich v poor due to the quality of sleep they get. It's a fascinating show.

I actually remember this song.

It's not silly if it brings you and those you love closer and allows you to share those special moments in this busy busy world.

Well, my fondness for his voice began when he was lead for Godsmack and I followed him along on his journey.

Some of his lyrics I relate to deeply.

I hope you enjoy the music.
