No Blood Clot

I have good news - I had to go to the doctor last week because of a place on my leg that was very tender, red and had fever. They thought it could be phlebitis, but as it turns out today they did an ultrasound on my leg and there is no sign of a blood clot. WOO HOO!!!! Thank goodness. Now I can concentrate on getting back to the task of having the lap band surgery done. It is going to be tough I know - I have a new friend through one of my wife's message boards who just had the surgery. She is going through some extreme pain and that part is what scares me. I don't handle pain very well. But this is something that I HAVE to do - there is no question. Just a couple more small hurdles - nutrition evaluation and acceptance by insurance...

Arnel Pineda

If you were to ever ask me who my favorite bands are I can name 2 that I can honestly say if I were stuck on a desert island and could have music only by these groups and never get weary of listening to them, I would say Dream Theater and Journey. Journey just acquired a new lead singer, and let me tell you he sounds just like Steve Perry. His name is Arnel Pineda and he is from the Philippines. I have enjoyed following his "journey" so far with the band, and I do believe Niel, Ross and Jonathan are really proud that they found this guy! If you get a chance, go pick up their new album "Revolution" - it comes with new songs, classics and a DVD! I think you will be just as impressed as I am with this new project as well as how they remain authentic with the classic Journey hits.

Illusion Reviewer...

How cool would it be to get to review new magic that one of your all time favorite magicians (and no I am not trying to brown nose) is developing? I received an e-mail asking for bloggers to e-mail in if they would be willing to do this. I am like - HECK YEAH!!! I absolutely love this guy's style, and he has a sense of humor a lot like mine, so I get him. The amount of thought that goes into his routines impresses me greatly and helps me understand the passion he has for his craft. On top of being a great magician, he is freakin' hilarious!!! I can't wait to hear back and see what happens...

Obama: Equal Pay for Women... Just Not on My Dime

Sen. Barack Obama talks a good game. There's talk about hope and change, and hope and change, and even more hope and change. What exactly is he hoping to change? No one really knows, but one thing is clear: the more we get to know him, the more we realize that his actions are quite different than his "hope and change" rhetoric.
