Share Your World/March 7 (so I’m a week late…)

March 7th 2021 at 19:53

QUESTIONS: 

  1. Is every piece of truth worth telling?   I’m not thinking that every little bit of the truth is worth telling. I think they would call that not being truthful by omission…Depending on who would get hurt with the cold hard facts, maybe it’s better not to… ❤
  2. Whom do you miss more Freddy Mercury or Prince?  (if you don’t know who those people are, just skip this question.  It’s cool). I’m thinking neither one really. Prince I really didn’t care for his music and Freddy Mercury, whatever. I did like Queen but I didn’t really have a bond with either of them. They weren’t my generation…I did like the song, “We are the Champions ❤
  3. If you could only email or text people for the rest of your life (no other form of communication), which would you chose?  I think it would have to email. Texting is just too impersonal…
  4. Would you prefer to work the midnight shift at a really creepy out of the way motel OR work alone for eternity? I’m thinking it would have to be working alone for eternity. At least I wouldn’t be scared out of my mind forever 😉 .

Bonus question because yes, these are a weird bunch this week:   What’s one secret you’re still keeping from your immediate family? (no details required.  You could say something like “The lost weekend in 1982”.  You can also answer “Why I NEVER keep secrets from my nearest and dearest!”). I can really say I don’t keep secrets and I don’t have any secrets…Or maybe I’m just getting old and I don’t remember if I have any secrets, but I don’t think I do 😉 .

Today I chose the song. Usually it’s the husband who comes up with the song but not today, it’s my pick…

No Sugar Tonight//New Mother Nature…The Guess Who

No that’s the name of the group, “Guess Who.” 😉

Lonely feeling deep inside
Find a corner where I can hide
Silent footsteps crowding me
Sudden darkness but I can seeNo sugar tonight in my coffee
No sugar tonight in my tea
No sugar to stand beside me
No sugar to run with meIn the silence of her mind
Quiet movements where I can find
Grabbing for me with her eyes
Now I’m falling from her skiesNo sugar tonight in my coffee
No sugar tonight in my tea
No sugar to stand beside me
No sugar to run with meJocko says yes, and I believe him
When we talk about the things I say
She hasn’t got the faith or the guts to leave him
When they’re standing in each other’s way
You’re tripping back now to places you’ve been to
You wonder what you’re gonna find
You know you’ve been wrong but it won’t be long
Before you leave ’em all far behind’Cause it’s the new Mother Nature taking over
It’s the new splendid lady come to call
It’s the new Mother Nature taking over
She’s gettin’ us all
She’s gettin’ us allJocko said no, when I came back last time
It’s looking like I lost a friend
No use callin’ ’cause the sky is fallin’
And I’m getting pretty near the end
A smoke-filled room in a corner basement
The situation must be right
A bag of goodies and a bottle of wine
We’re gonna get it on right tonight’Cause it’s the new Mother Nature taking over
It’s the new splendid lady come to call
It’s the new Mother Nature taking over
She’s gettin’ us all
She’s getting’ us allJocko says yes and I believe him
(Deep inside) when we talk about the things I say

Rain?! I had to think on this one a bit. It’s still winter up here and, for the most part, we did not get rain this winter! (This is coastal Alaska, and some winters are more rain & ice than snow!) Aside from a 24 hour period of RAIN in the middle of a multi-day […]

Oasis – Faster Than a Cannonball

March 7th 2021 at 10:59
By: Jim S.

Starting a rock band with your brother is a fantastic idea. Just ask Mark and David Knopfler, Ray and Dave Davies, Fred and Tony Doobie, Tom and John Fogerty. Or Liam and Noel Gallagher. What could possibly go wrong?

I was driving in San Francisco when a song came on unlike any I had ever heard before. The attitude, the aloofness, and the not-giving-a-fuck vibes were pouring out of the speakers, and by the time the first verse/bridge/chorus cycle was done, I was convinced that whatever I was listening to had to be that band that I had read about weeks back. Thus began a long and very rewarding relationship with a sound, an approach, and a way of looking at the world that has had a huge impact on me and helped shape who I am today … for whatever that’s worth. – Lars Ulrich. 

Noel Gallagher was born in Manchester England on 29 May 1967. Gallagher had an unhappy childhood – he and his brothers were often beaten by their father, who was an alcoholic. Noel was followed five years later in 1972 by brother Liam. Their mother Peggy separated from her husband a few laters later. While I personally think the brothers Gallaher can rightly be called two of the biggest wankers in rock music, my feelings for them are somewhat tempered by the great affection for their mum I saw in the Oasis documentary Supersonic

As you might expect from a couple of brothers five years apart raised by a drunk, the lads got themselves into trouble with the police on a fairly regular basis. Noel got tossed out of school for some infraction or another and at some point started playing the guitar, a gift from his mum who probably saw that he was headed for a life of perdition. It turned out that Noel had a songwriting gift and from then on “wanted to be Johnny Marr.”

By his own account in Supersonic, younger brother Liam had not much interest in music. Then, “during his teens, he suffered a blow to the head with a hammer from a student at a rival school, which he credits with changing his attitude towards music.

After this incident, he became infatuated with the idea of joining a band. He became confident in his ability to sing and began listening to bands like the Beatles, the Stone Roses, the La’s, the Who, the Kinks, the Jam, and T. Rex.

In the process, he became obsessed with John Lennon, and would later sarcastically claim to be Lennon reincarnated despite being born eight years prior to Lennon’s death.” The beginning of “Don’t Look Back in Anger” is cribbed from “Imagine.” (I’d always heard the band had a Beatles fixation but interestingly this did not come up very much if at all in Supersonic. – ME).

Noel drifted off to become a roadie in a band about whom I know nothing called Inspiral Carpets. Meanwhile, Liam had realized he could sing and joined a band called Rain. Ironically, thanks to an Inspiral Carpets poster in the Gallaghers’ bedroom which listed the Oasis Leisure Centre, they changed the name of the band to Oasis.

Noel approached the group about joining with the proviso that he would become the band’s sole songwriter and leader, and that they would really work towards being successful. Noel’s direction seemed to be similar to John Fogerty’s – I’m in charge here, they’re my songs and keep it simple, stupid.

The combination of Noel’s largely upbeat songs with brother Liam’s snarly, almost whiny vocals made for a great noisy din. The guys were discovered at a gig in Glasgow in 1993 and were signed to a now-defunct label called Creation.

The band went into the studio with a shitload of great Noel-written songs and a ton of raw energy. For all that, they couldn’t get that raw sound they got on stage and eventually wound up playing “live” in the studio.

In August of 1994, the band released Definitely Maybe, not only one of the best debut albums I’ve ever heard but also the album that just about single-handedly brought back guitar-driven rock in England. Together with their ultimate rivals Blur, this genre came to be labeled by the press as Britpop.

“Bring it On Down” wasn’t even THE hit from the album, doesn’t even kick if off. But it’s a fucking sledgehammer of a tune.

Spotify link

After the release of this album and the single “Supersonic,” the album went straight to number one in the UK Albums Chart and became the fastest-selling debut album in the UK at the time. I don’t recall this album having a big impact in the States at the time, perhaps mostly on alternative rock stations. Oasis were fairly popular over here but not the overwhelming social, cultural phenomenon they became in the UK.

There are so many good songs on this album you could literally just flip a coin. But I’ll go with “Live Forever,” and let Noel explain: “At the time . . . it was written in the middle of grunge and all that, and I remember Nirvana had a tune called ‘I Hate Myself and Want to Die’, and I was like . . . ‘Well, I’m not fucking having that.’

As much as I fucking like him, I’m not having that. I can’t have people like that coming over here, on smack, fucking saying that they hate themselves and they wanna die. That’s fucking rubbish. Kids don’t need to be hearing that nonsense.”

Spotify link

Liam and Noel, of course, got along famously usually referring to each other as cunts and hitting each other over the head with tambourines, guitars, cricket bats – whatever was handy. Noel even left the tour in America for a while, shacked up with a fan, and then came back. 

Between the first and second albums, the guys gave drummer Tony McCarroll the old heave-ho. Noel said that he felt that McCarroll wouldn’t be able to handle the newer tunes. That sounds like bullshit to me. It’s not like they suddenly started doing prog-rock. I think it was just a personality thing.

At this point, the band got swept up in a press-created rivalry with Blur which eventually got real causing Noel to say – in the way that only a fucking wanker like him can – that he hoped members of Blur would “catch AIDS and die.” He apologized. Mum must have been proud.

In October 1995 the battling brothers released (What’s the Story) Morning Glory? “Gallagher’s compositions were more focused in balladry and placed more emphasis on “huge” choruses with the string arrangements and more varied instrumentation contrasting with the rawness of the group’s debut album.”

This album made Oasis – in a sense – the Beatles of their generation at least in the UK. According to Ulrich, “Wherever or whoever you were when it was going down, you felt it … in the streets, in the pubs, the music press, on the radio, in the gossip rags, the concert halls, and affecting everything from the way people dressed, the way they cut their hair, what football team they supported, the way people communicated, one’s accent … the list goes on and on. Everyone had an opinion. Everybody had a thought. Nobody ignored them. No one.”

In the States, this is the album that’s probably best known and probably where I came in. Back to that Beatle thing, “Wonderwall’s” title was influenced by George Harrison’s debut solo album Wonderwall Music. And again, for such an angry young man, Noel comes up with the most upbeat melodies and lyrics:

Spotify link

This album contains “Some Might Say,” which was Oasis’ first hit single. It’s hard to overestimate how perfectly Liam’s vocals go with his brothers’ songs. I remember watching the Bee Gees documentary and someone commenting on how only siblings can get to that place. In the documentary Supersonic, they talked about how Liam could usually just nail the songs within one or two tries, almost as if he’d written them.

Here’s the entire audience singing along. This may be at the gigantic Knebworth concert, not sure. That hands-behind-his-back thing is pretty much a Liam trademark:

Spotify link

I’ll leave you with probably my favorite Oasis ballad, “Champagne Supernova.” Paul Weller plays and sings backing vocals on this one. Beautiful chords:

Spotify link

The band continued along losing their original rhythm guitarist Paul “Bonehead” Arthurs. Zak Starkey became part of their touring band and actually recorded with them on 2005’s Don’t Believe the Truth. I had lost touch with the band but they lasted longer than I thought when in 2009, Noel quit and said he just could not work with Liam anymore

Both brothers have since launched reasonably successful solo careers and Oasis’s legacy as a great band is pretty secure. Liam and Noel are not currently on speaking terms. So it goes.

The Paper Curse Strikes Again and Again

March 7th 2021 at 08:00
My husband and my sons have each experienced a weird number of strange occurrences where paper and their names are concerned. I am not sure exactly who it started with. My first son, M, says it started with my husband’s father not having a middle name and so “none” was entered where his middle name was supposed to go when he joined the navy.
Personally I think it was something else. When my husband was born his parents argued fiercely about whether to name him after his grandfather, so he would be Henry B. Estes II. His mother wanted to name him Michael something. As a result of their argument my husband’s name on the birth certificate was ” Boy Estes.” They never resolved the name decision on paper.
Fast Forward to when my husband enrolled in the ROTC at the local university. The only birth certificate found was for Boy Estes born on his birth date to the correct parents. So he had to get that resolved.  I don’t recall any name and paper problems before I dated him which was at least three years before he went to college. I wasn’t there with him in college, so I don’t know what happened there as far as the paper curse.
Fast forward to the early years of our marriage. Multiple times I remember our checks, paper work of various kinds, and on multiple occasions, coming to us with his name as Harry B. Estes II, Henry B. Esteves, Henry B. Estee II, Henry B. Estees and probably a few others that I don’t recall now about forty years later.
But there was one error I do remember after he completed his dissertation. My husband was teaching in a small junior college in Newton, Mississippi. He had carefully sent his dissertation on a floppy disc to his sister. His sister was a secretary and gladly helped him by typing all of the information on paper to be sent for his dissertation defense before his board of educators.
Well two days before it was due, we called the shipping company to track the book form of his dissertation. Much to his horror it had been sent to Newton, Massachusetts! Since he had classes to teach, I flew home and his sister printed another dissertation from the floppy disc. I made it back just in time for us to drive to the school to hand it in the next day.
Our oldest son, M., has also been saddled with what we now call the “paper curse.” The first evidence of the curse that I remember was a call from M. from college. He was worried and upset because the school had expelled him for drinking under age when he was well over 22 years old! The drinking limit was 21. So my husband called the dean of the school and discovered the problem. They had copied our son’s birth date incorrectly!! (1984 instead of 1983!) Things were straightened out and M. resumed his status as a student.
Advancing to the most recent paper curse events,  several years ago M. moved in with his girlfriend a year before they planned to marry the following fall. Her insurance covered him since they were in a relationship and living together, which was fine by all concerned.
So early this year M heard C, his wife, say over the phone, “I think if I had had a baby, two months ago, I would know it!” M was in the other room and grinned, knowing “IT” was coming.
His wife stormed into the room and told M., “Your stupid paper curse has done it again!” The insurance company had somehow stated that she had a baby two months ago. Since the insurance was only being paid to cover two family members, they had dropped M. to cover the nonexistent baby!
After resolving this episode of the paper curse, things were going smoothly….until last week! Many years ago my husband co-signed with M. for a savings account to help pay for M.’s education. Although my husband died eight years before, my son just left his father’s name on the account, until recently.
The first week of the month he took a copy of his father’s death certificate to the bank to have his father’s name removed from the account. Although M. had been making deposits and withdrawals for three weeks, suddenly M. was unable to access his savings account. Since I had access to it for him, I reassured him that it was still there and in tact. So M. and C. went to the bank to figure out what had happened.
The bank person had dropped M. from his account and left his deceased father’s name on the account!! The bank manager was called in to resolve this episode of the paper curse. The manager was appalled and said he had never seen anything like this happen before! We believe this problem is now resolved. But M was a little anxious about this confusion affecting his and his wife’s purchase of a house! Thankfully nothing happened!
There is one more son to tell about. D. has been like a second son to me and a brother to M. D. married a wonderful woman, C, and they had been married for over 14 years.
At my husband’s funeral in 2009 I asked M. about my adopting D. M. agreed but felt I should wait until D.’s parents had passed away. D. of course agreed to the adoption as did his sweet wife. Over the next several years his parents  both died at different times. D. knew I wanted to adopt him and I started the paper work for D.’s adoption.
It appears that he may not be immune to the paper curse. After filling out forms and paying the fees for his adoption I received formal notification of the adoption sent for correction before the changed birth certificate was printed: Name: DLP, (male name), Sex: FEMALE was being adopted!
When I called M. He began to laugh hysterically and said, “Yep, D.’s one of us!!” Then he called D and told him he was definitely an Estes! The paper curse affected him too!
Now we will have to sit tight and see whether the paper curse affects D and C’s sons, L. and F. and daughter E.!!

Yard and Garden Visitors

March 7th 2021 at 16:02

Every now and then I look in the yard and find evidence that a critter has come through. I had my suspicions; yet no real proof. A few years ago a relative gave me their old trail cams to set out. After listening to the advice on how to set them in the yard I put them out. The thing about a trail cam is any motion can trigger it to record the video. The first set of videos showed:

  • Me as I set up the trail cam
  • The grass as it blew in the wind
  • My dog
  • A few birds that flew by

Then one day I sat and went through the videos. My eyes opened wide:

Only a brief view of him as he walked through. I had to review the video a few times to see the raccoon. Then I checked the other videos. Sure enough he showed up again:

Then I found out who was eating things out of the garden:

Thanks to the trail cam I was able to solve the mystery of what was going on in the yard. Since then I have captured different critters on the videos. If you have a mystery in your yard I would recommend a trail cam. It can be fun to find out what critters are coming through and when.

Challenges Part 5: Crossfit

March 7th 2021 at 15:21
By: Mariam

I’ve been following this box on Instagram for a couple of months, and a few weeks ago they ran a competition. The winner would get a 2 week membership to train with them, and to enter, you had to comment on the competition post. A few days later, in the middle of the first day of the school term in the middle of my office after having been on my feet for almost 5 hours dealing with parents, my phone pings with this message in my DMs…

My 39th year of life did not get off to the greatest start. So when this happened, I was scared to celebrate or to be too excited. Can you imagine…the first time you ever win a prize, and it’s something you really want…but because you so rarely get what you want, your brain tells you that your good fortune is too good to be true and you brace yourself for the inevitable disappointment. Now, if you’re familiar with fitness then you know it is a journey that has many highs and lows. If you’re familiar with Crossfit and have ever watched the pro competitions, you’ll understand that pursuing it would be quite an undertaking. And if you know me well, then you’d know that I constantly underestimate myself. I was equally as anxious as I was excited. Somehow, I managed to silence my crazy, and one week later I walked into the box at R8dFit.

When you’re a kid you have dreams, usually born from the things you are exposed to, the influences around you, and the interests you cultivate along the way. I am very different to most of the women in my family, and I have always had interests that were different to the people I had around me (whether family or friends) and for most of my life I’ve felt very out of place. As I grew older, I traded my dreams for reality, tried to make responsible choices (even if at times it came at the cost of what made me happy) and eventually you settle into an unhealthily comfortable place.

The past two weeks brought me completely out of my comfort zone. Not only was I going to start something new, I was starting something I had a good chance of failing miserably at in a place where I knew literally no one. Progress and growth don’t happen when things are easy though – they happen when we face challenges and 2021 has been incredibly challenging for me (lots of changes, some through very unwelcome circumstances). It would have been easy for me to let other things in my life prevent me from giving this opportunity a proper go. The first challenge was to fight my natural inclination to put everyone else first, and I’m happy to say I won that fight.

As amazing as they were, I won’t go into too much of the mechanics of the past 14 days. But these are some of the lessons that have stood out for me…

  1. People are selfish. Most people will support you as long as it benefits them, and will quit on you in a heartbeat. You have to make sure you don’t quit on yourself.
  2. There are enough hours in the day for all that is important to you. First you have to acknowledge where and what you’re wasting time on. After that, it is simply a matter of adjustment and flexibility.
  3. There are few things in life more rewarding than the learning process. TRUST the process and have fun with the mistakes (a fail is a First Attempt In Learning – no one said you’re only allowed one attempt).
  4. You are not going to excel at everything. You won’t always be the best. BUT. You have to show up and keep trying to have a shot – most times you’ll end up surprising yourself.
  5. Celebrate your wins and appreciate the applause, even if it comes from the unlikeliest audience. I felt more supported in an unfamiliar place with strangers than I did at home or at work (a huge THANK YOU to the R8dfit team for making me feel as welcome as you did. I will be back soon!)

Everything in your life happens in good and perfect timing, and the past 2 weeks came at exactly the right time in my fitness journey (and, I daresay, my life journey too). I trained with some inspiring people. I learnt so many new things (about myself too). I exceeded my own expectations. I lifted some heavy shit! And it was AMAZING.
