Tuesday – get spinning

March is National Kidney Month. I’m into kidney’s because I’m a kidney cancer survivor. I salute all those with kidney issues and hope you healthy ones take care of that part of the body. Its important.

The Madness has begun with the conference tournaments under way. This is a great time. Pressure and excitement is off the charts. Its game time and its unpredictable as its ever been. And next week I’ll be completing my bracket as usual. I participate in an office pool contest. Its great. I’ve become somewhat of an item in that I always pick Maryland to win it all.

Not as nice as yesterday but sunny so I won’t bash the weather to start with. So lets begin on a positive note. We are alive, I was going to say alive and kicking but not this kid. Today is a continuation of a good bit of discomfort. Trying to overcome it again without the meds. I feel like I’ve injured the back again. Certainly not the first time so I do have some experience with that feeling.

So a few days of work in the books so to speak. A few more ahead and then I can see my new grandchild again this weekend. But I’m going to start by spending a day outside. Thursday looks like the best candidate so far in terms of weather. I’m going to get some exercise – outdoors. I might work on the home by starting to pick up branches outdoors. Might take a ride and put the top down outdoors. I might take a walk outdoors. Get the theme here. I’m sure we all want to get outside when a good opportunity presents itself.

I’m a big believer that this connected generation has lost a little of its incentive to get up and get outside. To make real connections and friends. To experience real events together. Maybe the person standing next to your best friend, and your on your Facebook live and thinking those people might be your best friends.

Random Thoughts of the Day

Even when I’m not feeling that good, all I have to do it is talk to my friends and all of a sudden I’m feeling better. Usually because they are worse off than me.

My feet want to know why we haven’t walked in the sand in some time.

Historical revisionist are interesting people. Sick but interesting.

Driving to DC is about as frustrating as it gets. Brutal road conditions. And the people. Wow is about all I can say without cursing.

The proposed budget proves how this is not the people’s president.

With a lifetime and a half in the Newspaper industry I'm preparing for my retirement career as an Artist, Writer, Photographer and Video content provider. I'm a proud father of two wonderful children and I'm still married to the first girl I fell in love with and probably only one that would have me.
