I've had some major back pain this week. Tonight I tried Icy Hot for the first time. It's amazing stuff, back is already feeling much better. Icy Hot feels somehow... Icy... and Hot... at the same time :P



Back pains are the worst, good to read you have found ways to ease the pain...

On the subject and maybe not...

I used to have a colleague who was a bit challenged in the brain department.
One day he came to the office with a face that screamed PAIN...
Upon asking what was the matter, he replied he had serious back pains.

I mentioned the use of Tiger Balm to ease the pain, obviously, he didn't know what it was.
So I told him it is an ointment used to ease for example back pains, that it heats the painful area, soothing the pain (especially recommended when having smoked a spliff).
Thereupon, he asked what it was made of because he had had some cardiac issues and operations and wasn't allowed the use of any product conting cortisone.
So I told him it is a completely natural product made of caramlised tiger urine...

He dug it...
He didn't use it though...

Silly fuck...

Tiger balm and tiger urine, both make the eyes water.

I'm going to hold off on the tiger urine for now. Hehe, nice to know there's an alternative solution though ;)

On the subject...

By John McCrae:

In Flanders fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.

The hardest part of being a musician, in my area, is being kind to Republicans.

hmm...

Mr President is getting more and more derailed...
It's getting really scary.
Every american should with half a brain should hit the streets and protest that orange haired shithead...

Agreed, it was highly entertaining at first but now it's grown beyond that...

Growing up I had a cousin whose father was a pot dealer. The dad was always a very rough customer yet nice to children. His mother was the one we were related to but I grew up calling the father "uncle". I had always heard this fellow used to be in a very rough motorcycle gang; an actual outlaw biker gang, not like most of the biker clubs that are around today. I had also heard rumors that he and a few others had killed a man, an infamous crime in our area that has still not been solved.

About six or seven years ago one of this guy's friends who I also knew was apparently going to come forward and confess what he knew about that murder to the police. This guy was also a drug dealer, but he'd had a change of heart as he'd gotten older, and had quit selling, quit pretty much everything. Well my "uncle" didn't like that, but he was old and had slowed down in his old age as well. His daughter went over to confront the guy and the two of them had a shootout and ended up killing one another.
Now my "uncle" is is poor health, and it's not looking good for him. Guess what happened?

He's found jesus!

I can't help but laugh and be sad at the same time. That's a random thing I was thinking about this morning as lately I've saw all these facebook posts from the guy along the lines of "God bless you", "Keep the faith brother, all things are possible through Jesus." Etc...

It seems like some people just like to go to extremes, from one extreme to the next, even if they can seem very far apart for the rest of us. I know of a lot of people who have gone from being into drugs to being into Jesus, like they're swapping one drug for another.

I've noticed that as well. The middle path is sometimes a challenge for us all to walk at times I suppose.
